From Shakesville:

Marcel Marceau has passed on.

"Among those kids was maybe an Einstein, a Mozart, somebody who (would have) found a cancer drug," he told reporters in 2000. "That is why we have a great responsibility. Let us love one another."

Godspeed, Mr. Marceau. The world is a lonelier place without you.

Two Years? I Think I Can Wait that Long.

Transformers 2 is scheduled for summer 2009.

In two years, I will be able to get my geek on.... again! Woo woo!

--Weasel, admits she's a sad little geek.

How Do You Spell Migraine? W-O-R-K

It is official: I fucking hate self-checkout.

Once upon a time, it wasn't so bad. Sure there was the occasional glitch and the much more common idiot, but it was actually pretty pleasant. Hell, I didn't mind spending a day on there; it was quite relaxing.

Until two days ago.

Some management jackass decided we needed to re-install the scales beneath the bagging area. Those scales were removed several months ago because they sucked and caused more problems than they were worth.

Today was the first full day I've spent on the "new" self-checkouts. I wanted to rip my hair out and scream. If the item isn't the "proper" weight, the machine freezes. If the customer doesn't put the item in the bag fast enough, the machine freezes. If the a customer chooses "Skip Bagging" and puts the item in a bag, the machine freezes. If the customer slams the item in the bag, the machine freezes. If someone places a wallet in the bagging area, the machine freezes. If you look at the fucking self-checkout cross-eyed, the machine fucking freezes. The customers hate it, the associates hate it and I'm damn tempted to take a fucking sledgehammer to each and every one of those goddamned glitchy-ass machines.

Modern convenience my ass.

So the IMAX version of Transformers hits theatres this Friday. I can't go. I have to work.

I have a few words to say about that, none of them nice. I'll have to wait a blasted week or so to actually see it. And considering this will be the only place I'll see the extra footage (supposedly), I'm pretty pissed that I'll have to wait.

Shit always seems to happen in the fall.

Jesus. Fucking. Christ.

Linkage from God is for Suckers.

Go. Read. And shit your pants.

I Don't Feel a Damn Bit Safer

Found this little gem at God is for Suckers.
Starting October the first, they'll be watching us. Cue up Sting and that '80s song about stalking.

From the source:

Beginning in October 2007 the Department of Homeland Security will open a new office called the National Applications Office (NAO) charged with civil/domestic intelligence gathering. This new division of Homeland Security was conceived entirely by the Executive Branch, with no Congressional input, and will serve as a clearinghouse for requests to access the data provided by military spy satellites, with a resolution of inches, to view the territorial United States. During the hearing Charles Allen, Assistant Secretary for Intelligence & Analysis told Chairman Bennie Thompson that their legal and civil rights oversite concerns were misplaced. […] The plan is for the NAO to serve as a clearing house for law enforcement requests to access the spy satellite data upon NAO’s approval. That approval will be granted through inhouse review, with no Judicial oversite, and no explaination forth coming to the Committee as to what, exactly, the guidelines for approval would be. The legal staff of both Homeland Security and the NAO declined to attend the hearings, claiming, according to Chairman Thompson that they did not wish to appear on a panel that included the ACLU.
Boy, I feel safer already. Don't you?

Pic from LOL BOTS. Trust me, if it were Bumblebee watching over me, I'd feel a helluva lot safer.

And People Wonder Why I Moved

It wouldn't be because of this bullshit, would it? Nah.

Wow, way to go idiots. So much for the "liberal" educational system. Makes NC colleges look all warm and inviting, doesn't it? You know, there's a reason I called UNC-Wilmington UNC-Worthless.....

--Weasel, "What liberal educational system? I didn't know that even existed."

What in the Flying Shitfuck?!

From the "You Can't Make this Shit Up" files and found via Canadian Cynic:

Freddie Phelps' clan is set to picket Senator Craig.

From the mouth of the dear brain deficient asshole Reverend:
"Thank God for revealing a bit of truth about Sen. Larry Craig of Idaho; and, by a logical extension, about the United States Congress."

You know, Phelps, I would quit speaking for God. You may just piss him off. Royally.

Completely unsure where I found this pic. If I can ever find the exact URL, I will give credit.

Update from the Living Dead

I would have posted sooner, but I haven't felt up to it.

Truth be told, I've only really felt like sleeping. Eating? Forget about it. Been sick since Wednesday and am just now feeling somewhat human. (Hey, I can actually consume semi-solid food! The joy!)

Future updates will happen when I feel less like total ass. Until then, I retire.

--Weasel, "I'm sick of sleeping and tired of Jell-O. This sucks!"

I Pray to the Gods of Pop Culture that This be Bullshit

Seriously. What. The. Fuck?!

It's all rumor at this point, but Good Lord. This does not look good.

I Honestly Don't Know What to Say

Pavarotti is dead.

I'm shocked, honestly. I thouhgt he'd stay around a helluva lot longer.

Is It October Yet? has a track listing for the upcoming Transformers movie score.
It is safe to say that I will wear out track number 7 and repeatedly skip number 16.

--Weasel, excited little nerd-bot :)

Well, I'm Hell-bound!

At least, according to this lovely website.

Transformers is on their "Blasphemy List". I've seen it five times. Guess my soul is damned to hell, huh?

Ye gods, the stupid is killing me......
