The New Yorker Obama cover

I can think of several times in which Hillary was depicted in an unfavorable light and little was made of it. Take for example, the Obama bites Hillary float, in which Obama the dog bites Hillary’s butt. I’m sure that a few Hillary supporters were upset, but there was no public outcry. Mad magazine has Obama beating Hillary unconscious in the boxing ring, and while I’m sure many Hillary supporters dislike the cartoon, there was no public outcry. Yet, for some reason, Obama supporters feel like they must lose their heads over any Obama criticism … real or imagined.

Obama and his people need to pick their fights and not fight EVERY fight. If Obama’s supporters continue in this fashion both they and Obama will lose credibility in the eyes of the voters.

Come on people, Obama is not the Prophet Mohamed, you can make cartoons of him. He is not God, you can criticize his positions.  If you are going to lose it over every Obama cartoon then have the guts to lose it when others are criticized.

Sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.

Soul by Tobsha Learner

Is there such a thing as a “killer” gene? Genetic researcher Julia Huntington tries to discover the gene that will turn a person into a remorseless killer.  The story dances between the lives of Julia and her ancestor Lavinia. Even though the story is ok, it is heavily erotic and not suitable for younger readers.

Iranian rockets

Shortly after the Iranian missile propaganda that was run in most news agencies, Iran announced another missile test. The Iranian Revolutionary Guards are proud to produce their new weapons to be used against the Zionists. The new apple rocket is designed to cause mass destruction to Israel. After all, look what Apple has done to Microsoft!

Doesn’t say much for our news media does it!

Lawn zombie

I gotta get me one of these! A zombie that appears to be crawling out of your garden. I mean come on the neighbors think I’m weird anyway.

The Zombie of Montclaire Moors Sculpture
By artist Alan Dickinson. If this doesn’t scare your neighbors, nothing will!
We challenged noted British artist Alan Dickinson to create his most haunting image exclusively for Toscano—and he certainly delivered! Not for the faint of heart, Dickinson’s life-sized, gray-toned zombie will claw his way out of your garden plot or family room corner, pleading for assistance with the most lifelike eyes you’ve ever seen. His macabre expression is captured in such great detail in quality designer resin and finished so realistically that you’ll swear you can hear him breathing!
For the person who wants to add a little scifi to their garden hobby. Link

In Canada you can get KFC Chicken without the Chicken!

In Canada you can get KFC Chicken without the chicken.

The fake chicken, known as unchicken, has been around for years and is available in a handful of restaurants and stores in Canada. Most of the fake meats are soy-based and fair game for vegans. Some may contain eggs, but are meat-free.

Looks like a dangerous slippery slope, if we can have chicken-less chicken … what’s next?  A scifi-less Sci-fi channel … wait that’s happened with wrestling and ghost hunters.  A news-less news station … wait that’s happened with “fake but accurate” stories. Talent-less entertainers …. err.

Well, let them enjoy their chicken-less chicken. Just as long as nobody takes away my paper-less books!

Free ebooks

With jury duty and the holidays, I missed a few ebooks by Tor.

If you need a Battlestar Galactica fix try Battlestar Galactica by Jeffrey A. Carver. Its nicely written with good battle scenes. Carver does a better job with the old battlestar than the Sci-Fi Channel.

Klaatu barada whoa!

Every time Hollywood announces that they will “re-make” a classic scifi movie, I prepare myself for a major disappointment. I get that sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. Like that sick feeling that you got or still get on exam day. Of course, I try to tell myself that this time Hollywood will crank out a version that is better than the original.  However; that is as true as telling myself that I really didn’t need to study for that test.

This time Hollywood plans to remake the 1951 classic “The Day the Earth Stood Still”.

Keanu’s Klaatu
“Dude … your choice is simple. Join us and live in peace or pursue your present course and face … whoa … obliteration. We shall be waiting for your answer. The decision rests with you.”

Watch the trailer here ….

Dr. Who “Journey’s End”

I have a problem with the Scifi channel from time to time. I mean, come on, wrestling is scifi?  However; I have to compliment them for the way that they are handling the massive 65-minute season finale of Dr. Who.

Dr. Who “Journey’s End” will be shown in August unedited in a 90-minute special. Nice touch Scifi channel!
