Light Emitting Clothing

Pajamas Media will finally be happy … they can really blog _in_ their underwear now.

I wonder if we’ll call them LEC’s or LET’s (Light Emitting Textiles) in 20 years?

I’m not gonna be happy until I can put a Google Map on my sleeve, and get my email in my underwear.

The Rastafarians vs. The Wikipedia Jews

The Edge has a really great piece on the collectivism that is Wikipedia. And the guy who wrote it?

Christopher Hitchens is my Favorite Socialist

Here … see if you don’t agree. This goes directly to the Malontent’s Hitchens/Maher content. You should look at the site too …

What do we gain from this? I’ll take an honest debate with facts any day of the week, with whomever and wherever.

Rob Reiner is a Jack Ass


Mel Gibson’s apology for making drunken anti-Semitic remarks isn’t enough to redeem him, actor-producer Rob Reiner said. The actor also must acknowledge that “his work reflects anti-Semitism,” particularly the 2004 hit movie “The Passion of the Christ,” Reiner told Associated Press Radio.

Of course it does. Of course it does.

How much of this is jealousy? The Hollywood establishment had a veritable cow when Passion did well, precisely because it was made outside of the usual production path that most movies take. What’s more, it was a huge success even though it is overtly religious. Certainly the teeming masses couldn’t appreciate such … mythology. Now Reiner is criminalizing the work based on the crime of the producer.

Meredith Viera Could take Ms. Cougar any Day

Meredith Viera, formerly of the view and now switching to Today, puts us some common sense:

What do you say to women who want to have it all?

I hate that expression. When I left 60 Minutes, I had women who came up to me very angry and said, “You know, you were proof you could have it all. How dare you leave?” I thought that was ridiculous–I would lie to myself to create a lie for everybody else? You have to prioritize. If you can fit in job and kids and be comfortable with it, great. At that point, I realized I couldn’t do it and give my kids and husband what they needed.

Viera has a point. It’s roughly the same point that Katherine Hepburn used to make about raising a family, which was that she couldn’t give it the focus and attention that it deserves and so she never did it. These are women who know their limitations and who know reality when they see it.

Now for the gratuitous image …

Sexual Politics

Allah is, as Ace suggests, exploring the studio space. It’s Friday – time to throw gas on smoldering fires. The bit about porn I’ll just let go … better men than I are on it.

But the bit about Forbes’ article on career women is funny. Evidently it caused enough stir that they took the post down and then re-upped it as point / counterpoint. What is really a pretty reasoned and factual article by Michael Noer is taken as a slap in the progressive face. So they got some stringer, and a woman to boot, to do the refutation in the name of balance.

So the balanced diversity thing is a little silly. And the fact that the refutation is anecdotal, poorly written, and a fluff opinion piece certainly didn’t stop the editors from doing their bit for the cause. But really, this is all pretty funny …The best part? Here are the titles …
Point: Don’t Marry Career Women

Counterpoint: Don’t Marry A Lazy Man

That’s not a counterpoint. That’s an attack.

… is single. I was going to rag him on his site, but no one’ll read it here. Here’s the theory …

He quit blogging to shore up the previous relationship.

He started blogging again when that was obviously not enough.

If you question the timing, as I do, then it all makes sense.

But, really, who gives a crap. He’s single. He seems like a good guy. Go get him, girls. You could do worse than having “Garfield Ridge” as a last name …
