Morning Seditionists

Rocktober

So we’ve made it through September and are on the relentless march toward winter. How exciting. And now it’s October, aka, “Beer Month,” which is ironic since I haven’t had a cold frost one in almost two weeks. I find this to be horribly depressing and, frankly, not a life worth living since it was the only thing I actually had to look forward to, and now it’s gone. For the time being, anyway. I was somewhat concerned that my new dizziness thing was a result of my blood pressure (which the beer isn’t particularly good for). After some research, however, I think what I have is BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo), which is unrelated to the beer.

If you’re like me, no matter how much you don’t give a shit, you’ve been forced to hear that NY Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter is retiring at the end of this season. To all of us, last night was bittersweet as Jeter drove in the winning run on a wlak-off single in the ninth inning of his final at-bat at Yankee Sstadium last night. Bitter, because now there’s even more hype than there was before, but sweet because the Yankees didn’t make the playoffs and their season is finally almost over. I, however, would like to think that Jeter will always be remembered in this way as he walked off the field in NY one last time:

Bidet, Mate

To continue the recent “poop” theme here (stay classy, Seditionists!)…. I’m not sure why I’d want a terlet with a wireless remote control (unless I could keep it by my bed at night – the remote, that is, though having the toilet by the bed isn’t a bad idea, either; it would help tp keep me from stepping on dogs on the weay to the bathroom – and have it get up and take a piss for me), but if you’ve been hankerin’ for a fancy bidet-style system, Woot has some deals for you today (I would say “Woot has your ass covered,” but that sort of crass humor is beneath me).

Finally, it’s Saturday again. Unfortunately, I seem to have contracted some sort of a disease (or perhaps it’s just a continuation of what I had before), and I actually stayed home from work yesterday for the first time in longer than I can recall. I think this is some sort of sinus thing, because I feel pressure in my head, and every time I change position, my head starts swimming. Like, every time I rolled over in bed last night and the night before.

Wipey Wipey

A while back I heard somebody talking about how toilet paper hadn’t been significantly changed since 1890 when brothers Clarence and E. Irvin Scott put it on a roll. It may not be a perfect product, but it would seem to be pretty much as good as it’s gonna get (assuming we Americans don’t adopt the bidet style of – and I read this phrase while doing research on this topic – “anal cleansing”). Never fear, though, because when it comes to wiping your ass, Adam Smith’s invisible hand is always ready to reach out.

Where All the Nine One One Stuff?

It is with great surprise that I look around the Internets this morning and see very little about the anniversary of “the day that changed everything.” Oh, sure CNN has a little section on their homepage, but they’ve probably had that there for a while (dunno – don’t often go to CNN). Otherwise, not much of anything. Is it because Ray Rice and ISIS have consumed too much of the tiny little collective American consciousness? Or is it that “real” America has finally realized they never did much like godless, liberal NYC (or Washington DC for that matter) anyway? I mean, it took decades for America to more or less ignore D-Day and Pearl Harbor, so you’d think 9/11 would have a run of a few more years at least.

Do You Believe in Miracles?

Do ya? Well, you shouldn’t. At least not in NYS politics, as Governor Snotball rather handily (though not as handily as he’d have liked) withstood the Zephyr wind to win the Democratic nomination for Governor. So, thanks to the worthless, gutless, and feckless Working Families Party (I wish I still had links on the sidebar so I could take theirs down), we won’t be able to vote for Teachout in November. I guess that only leaves perpetual candidate for everything Howie Hawkins (he’s kinda like a Timex watch – or maybe Gus Hall). Since there’s virtually no possibility of that Republican guy (what’s his name? Ford Torino or something?) winning (absent some Anthony Weiner-style twitpics out there somewhere), I guess that’s a safe vote. Or you can write me in. But I think I’d vote for Howie instead.

Teachoutable Moment

Big day today, as Zephyr Teachout will try to Wu NY Democrats and hopefully defeat that sorryass non-Democrat Democrat Governor of ours. Or at least hopefully she gets enough votes to make Andy nervous. If you’re a NY Democrat, be sure to head to the polls and vote for her and for Wu as well. If you’re not a NY Democrat, well, I hear voter fraud is super easy to get away with here in NY, ‘cuz we kind of encourage people to vote instead of making it difficult for them.

This is it – the beginning of the only thing that takes the edge off the thought that winter is coming. NFL football. OK, so, technically football actually started on Thursday as they snuck in a game between somebody and somebody else (Green Bay got killed by Seattle, I guess), but we all know that football on Thursday isn’t really football (unless it’s Thanksgiving, but then it’s always Detroit and Dallas playing somebody and that’s not really football either).

Dollar Day

Happy September, everybody. And welcome to the earliest possible Labor Day. If you’ve been holding off on going to the NYS Fair (and I suspect you have), today’s the day to get out there, as it’s $1 admission and $1 rides all day. Plus you get to see the Labor Day Parade and if you feel like hanging around ’til sis o’clock you can even see the Doobie Brothers (which at least still includes Tom Johnston and Patrick Simmons from the olden days, and blessedly doesn’t include Michael McDonald – no offense, Mike, just was never into the “What a Fool Believes” or “Takin’ it to the Streets” shit. I’m more of a “Black Water” – the song, not the mercenary company – guy).
