Wednesday Night's ONT Needs Coffee

Lately the ONTs have been going all night long. What do you need to follow them? Why, you need to stay awake, of course, but how?

Cup that size outta keep you up for 2 ONTs, maybe 3. For those of us with a less prodigious appetite for coffee, John Gabriel tells us How to Make the Perfect Cup of Coffee


NFL


Of course, this Sunday is Super Bowl LI, when all of America gathers around their TVs to watch a thrilling four hour extravaganza of commercials, occasionally interrupted by sweaty men in tight pants and pop singers preaching Proggy political values. This year my Ravens didn't make it, but we can take solace in the fact that we have the greatest kicker on the planet. Don't believe me? Check this out:


That's a 50 yard kick into a basketball hoop, nothing but net. Unreal.

Hallelujah


Seven or eight years ago, after it became apparent what kind of president Obama was going to be, I wrote new lyrics appropriate to the Obama era to the song Hallelujah from Shrek. They sat around until I happened to mention that I had done so to Moron Petey S Dee at CPAC last year. Now Petey has a band, and he took my lyrics, rewrote a few lines to make them less Obama/Tea Party specific, and recorded it. He's released the single, you can listen to it here. Toss him a couple of bucks and download it if you like it.

(You can see the lyrics as I wrote them at my seldom used blog.)

(E.T.A. DON'T BUY ANY OF THEIR MUSIC ON FRIDAY (per their request). Bandcamp (website) is donating Friday's proceeds to fund illegal aliens)

Wacky Canadians


One of the things about visiting Canada is the omnipresence of curling on TV. It's strangely fascinating. When I'm up there, I'll flip on the set, “Oh, curling”...and then realize that two hours has gone by. Well, the city of Winnipeg has gone a step further, combining curling with the Canadian board game crokinole, and installed a new outdoor rink for the new sport. (Curlinole? Crokling?) Not much to do in Manitoba during the winter, I'm guessing, and at least it beats last year's winter sport.

What the poser punks of Green Day can learn from the Sex Pistols


The modern punk scene, and Green Day in particular, needs to look back to the Sex Pistols’ massively influential 1977 release, “Never Mind the Bollocks Here’s the Sex Pistols.”
Pistols frontman John Lydon (then going by “Johnny Rotten”) was, like most punks, a dedicated foe of political correctness. The song “God Save the Queen,” a snarling, subversive anthem of the fed-up British working class, earned denunciations and threats from Parliament.
And “Bodies” is a shockingly graphic critique of abortion:
“Dragged on a table in factory, illegitimate place to be / In a packet in a lavatory, die little baby screaming / Body screaming f- - - - -g bloody mess / Not an animal, it’s an abortion.”
In defending the lyrics to Spin magazine in 2007, Lydon said: “I don’t think there’s a clearer song about the pain of abortion. The juxtaposition of all those different psychic things in your head and all the confusion, the anger, the frustration, you have to capture in those words.”

Back in the day, I was big into punk rock. Sex Pistols, Ramones, Circle Jerks, DK, Black Flag, Minor Threat, etc... I listened to them all and saw most of them play live multiple times. While there was frequently a left wing bent to much of the music (Listen to Circle Jerks' “Killing for Jesus” or DK's “We've Got a Bigger Problem Now”, for example), the scene was always based on the principles of freedom and an opposition to totalitarian government. It is distressing to see how many of the punk rock icons of my youth are now nothing more than lockstep lefties. My best friend from high school was a bigger punk than I was, and the last time I talked to him (several years ago now), he was living in Reno and driving union goons around to “get out the vote” for Harry Reid. Smh.

Gender “Equity”

Kindergarten Teacher Bans Legos For Boys


Elementary teacher Karen Keller doesn’t allow male students to play with the blocks in order to encourage use among females. She even makes up excuses sometimes to set her agenda in order.
“I always tell the boys, ‘You’re going to have a turn’ — and I’m like, ‘Yeah, when hell freezes over’ in my head,” 

So the logic here seems to be, as it always is, that boys playing with Legos gives them an unfair advantage (never mind that the girls weren't kept from the Legos, they just freely chose not to play with them.), presumably leading to fewer girls getting degrees in math and science down the road (again, despite the fact that girls are quite free to pursue those fields if they want to). Ever notice that a majority of women making these arguments didn't chose STEM themselves? Tell ya what, sugar tits, why don't YOU get a degree in engineering, huh? You're a fucking kindergarten teacher (not disparaging kindergarten teachers, my first wife was one and she worked damn hard, but the academic rigor required to be one isn't even in the same universe as what's required for a STEM degree).
