Peggy Joseph 2014

Thursday, July 17, 2014 11:00 am

Remember Peggy Joseph? Sure you do.


[The YouTube]

Well, she’s using different words now.

Tip: The Other McCain

The question is not who “will she vote for in 2016?”, it’s “who will she vote for in 2014?”

I didn’t mind making fun of her in 2008, or in the years since. But she seems to be wising up. So, maybe there’s hope — real hope — after all.

But, if I stop making fun of Peggy Joseph, that doesn’t mean I’ll stop making fun of Barack Obama and others who still drink his Kool-Aid. None of us should.

Do you have a funny story of someone who was Peggy Joseph then and is still that way? Share it. We could all use a good laugh.

[Video: The YouTube. Transcript: U. S. Army]

Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force! You are about to embark upon a great crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers in arms on other fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.

Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened, he will fight savagely.

But this is the year 1944! Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man to man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our home fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to victory!

I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory!

Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessings of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.

– Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower

Silver Medals and Sweet Memories

Monday, May 26, 2014 6:00 am

Just something a little different for Memorial Day.


[The YouTube]

Just a picture on a table
Just some letters Mama saved
And a costume broach from England
On the back it has engraved:
To Eileen, I love you
London, 1943.
And she never heard from him again
And he never heard of me.

And the war still ain’t over for Mama
Every night in her dreams she still sees
The young face of someone who left her
Silver medals and sweet memories.

In Mama’s bedroom closet
To this day on her top shelf
There’s a flag folded three-cornered
Layin’ all by itself.
And the sergeant would surely be honored
To know how pretty she still is
And that after all these lonely years
His Eileen’s still his.

And the war still ain’t over for Mama
Every night in her dreams she still sees
The young face of someone who left her
Silver medals and sweet memories.

Typical Doctor Who fans, um, enthusiasts

Wednesday, May 21, 2014 11:00 am

This is how some people imagine Doctor Who enthusiasts are.

It’s totally not true. We wouldn’t turn out the lights.

Doctor Who – The Pitch

Tuesday, May 20, 2014 11:00 am

Last year, I decided to watch all of the old Doctor Who episodes. Not the current series that began in 2005, but the old one that began in 1963. Finished it earlier this year, though my weekly wrap-ups of individual seasons haven’t all been published yet.

If you’ve been following them, and have decided you want to watch it, well, then, I’ll welcome you aboard the TARDIS. If you still aren’t sure, or if you want to offer something to friends to help them decide if they want to watch the old show, let me offer this. It’s the original sales pitch to the BBC for the show:

Now Who can argue with that?

No particular reason for this, other than it’s cool. I love movies, and have seen a bunch of the films in this. But not all.

I have several of the early Georges Méliès shorts. Some of his effects still hold up well. Some don’t. But it’s all fun.

Come to think of it, I need to post some of his works. You might not care about it, but I’d enjoy it.

Baby It’s Khan Outside

Monday, December 9, 2013 10:00 am

It’s the Christmas season. And, of course, what would Christmas be without … a Star Trek reference?

The song Baby, It’s Cold Outside first appeared in the MGM feature Neptune’s Daughter in 1949. It starred Esther Williams, Red Skelton, and … Ricardo Montalbán.

In defense of Microsoft

Saturday, September 14, 2013 1:00 pm

Microsoft? Not a fan. Well, maybe a little. Some of their stuff works great. But Windows? It’s cumbersome. I haven’t tried Windows 8 yet, but maybe it’s okay. Kinda doubt it.

Anyway, I went Mac in 2007 and have been happy ever since. Was MS-DOS since 2.20 and Windows since 2.03, but finally made the switch. Happy with my Mac, happy with my iPhone (though not with my carrier), and I’m not interested in going back to Windows, or with getting a Windows Phone.

Having said that, recently Microsoft posted a series of videos poking fun at Apple’s new iPhones. But, the Redmond company caught flack about them and took them down. I’m kinda disappointed they caved. The videos were kinda clever. Here’s one:


[YouTube]

Now, a lot of the criticism I saw was directed at the confusion over the CEO character (seen only from behind). They weren’t sure if it was supposed to be Tim Cook because it sometimes looked like Steve Jobs. What they missed is … the entire point.

Though the ad begins in “2013″ it’s clearly a compare/contrast between Apple under Cook and Apple under Jobs. Notice how the characters talking to the CEO change shirts and hair styles. The grey shirts represent\ current-day, under Cook, and the black shirts represent Apple under Jobs.

They two developers are shown unsuccessfully selling Jobs on the idea of plastic, colored phones, and getting that passed off as innovation in the current day.

I liked the ad. Microsoft did a good job. It seems that some people don’t appreciate Microsoft’s sense of humor any better than I appreciate their operating systems.

Good job, Microsoft. On the videos.

Hey, Francis! I got somebody I’d like you to meet.

PopeExorcism

Image: The Mirror

Some people appear to getting their panties in a wad over the pope laying hands on some guy and praying. They’re saying he performed an exorcism on the guy right there in line at St. Peter’s Square.

Here’s the video:

[Source: YouTube]

Now, it looks to me like he did exactly what I said in the opening sentence: he laid hands on a fellow and offered a prayer. Heck, I’ve seen Baptists do that, so I’m certainly not surprised when the Bishop of Rome does it.

But, some folks are going all gaga over it, calling it an exorcism. And, heck, maybe it was.

If it was, and Pope Francis can do that (and I’m not doubting it), I wonder if maybe he’ll do it again sometime.

I suggest his next visit to Washington, DC, would be a great time. So, in case the head of the Roman Catholic Church is reading this, here’s what to do:

  • From Reagan National, have the driver take the George Washington Parkway to I-395 North.
  • Take the US-1 exit, merging onto US-1/14th Street.
  • Left on Madison.
  • Right on 15th NW.
  • Left onto E Street/Pennsylvania Avenue (you’ll need to show ID, it’s restricted).
  • Take the first right.
  • Ask for Barack.

I wish you much success!
