New Orleans: ‘The Vagina of America’

Via NewsBusters, Seton Motley discusses the Today Show appearance by “Vagina Monologues” playwright Eve Ensler, and Jane Fonda:

Apparently the Today show had not had enough of this dynamic duo earlier in the program, when the fabulously classy Miss Fonda used another word for “vagina” that begins with the letter “c”.

So they brought the pair back for the 10 o’clock hour, and America was again regaled with their brilliant and insightful perspective. A perspective, and a vernacular — it must be noted — that would get any man on the planet at the very least slapped silly.

The video, Miss Ensler’s political genital declaration (which we think grossly underestimates the chronology and the total) and Miss Fonda’s in-depth analysis of New Orleans’ vagina-ness, follows below.

Eve Ensler: “You know what? The Mayor of New Orleans (the notorious Ray Nagin) just declared himself one of the first vagina friendly mayors.”

Editor’s Note: We would imagine there a quite a few more, going WAY back. And we can think of a pol or two further up the electoral food chain, of 1990s vintage, who were big fans as well.

Eve Enser: “He’s walking through the streets of New Orleans talking about it.”

Editor’s Note: We are quite sure that he is.

Jane Fonda: “Think about it — it (New Orleans)’s moist, it’s a wetland, it’s a place — it’s a place where people come for fun. And when things go south, forget about it, shut it down.”

Editor’s Note: Again, this type of talk would get any man on the planet open-handed into oblivion by any woman in aural proximity.

Eve Ensler: “That’s right.”

We’ll take their words for it.

First thought: Ewww… This is what passes for Breakfast Television in America? Second thought: Maybe New Orleans could raise some funds by selling special limited edition license plates, bumper stickers and even t-shirts: New Orleans – The Vagina of America.

From WANG, er, WDEI: The Who – Love, Reign O’er Me

This was basically my anthem back in high school. I wore my first copy of Quadrophenia out, I listened to it so much. I still think Roger Daltrey had the best Rock and Roll Scream of all time, no rock bassist could touch John Entwistle, and Keith Moon had no match for maniacal drumming. Pete was basically just the songwriter for the group. Here they all are, in full form.

I like how the guy just put a title page up, with no video. Nice.

Orleans….You’re Still The One…WTIZ

Epically Clintonian Genetic Abnormalities

I had actually collected these two photos to put together in a post of my own, but Rusty Ramshackle Ford over at The Jawa Report beat me to the punch. So, naturally, I just stole his photo. It was the least I could do.

House Approves Contempt Citations for Miers, Bolten. Conyers! You are either THE first Black Ku Klux Klan Member OR the Second Islamic In Congress…Pick One..

WASHINGTON —  The House voted Thursday to issue contempt citations for two presidential confidants on an almost completely party-line vote pushed by Democrats.

The vote also stirred partisan rancor that was rooted in disputes over both the contempt citations — which the White House and Republicans alike have dismissed as Democratic gamesmanship — and the lack of an upcoming vote on a terror surveillance package.

The citations charge former White House counsel Harriet Miers with failing to testify and accuse her and White House Chief of Staff Josh Bolten of refusing Congress’ demands for documents related to the 2006-2007 firings of a number of U.S. attorneys, which Democrats believe might have been done for political reasons.

The House vote on the contempt citations was 223-32, with nearly all Democrats voting in favor of the resolution, and nearly all Republicans voting against. The vote count was suppressed after Republicans walked off the House floor in protest.

The were a few exceptions. Three Republicans voted for the citations: Reps. Walter Jones of North Carolina; Wayne Gilchrest of Maryland; and Ron Paul of Texas, who is also seeking the GOP presidential nomination.

Dildos in the Supreme Court: No, Not the Justices in this Instance

The Voloch Conspiracy has noted a disagreement between the Fifth and Eleventh Circuit Courts on the legality of sex toys in the home.  That’s right, my home State of Texas said we can’t own dildos here, and the Fifth Circuit Court struck down the law (Whew!), but the Eleventh Circuit let stand Alabama’s anti-dildo law (When dildos are outlawed, only outlaws will have dildos).

Yet more evidence for my proposition to disqualify anybody with a law degree from serving in a legislative body, or as a judge: This is the kind of stupid shit lawyer-politicians and lawyer-judges waste their time and our money on. Stupid fucks.

For All You Lovers Out There


Valentine’s Day marks the end of my least favorite time of the year, which begins on Halloween. Spring and warm weather is just around the corner. I did buy my manager a pink, inscribed iPod Nano this year, which is the first Valentine’s Day gift I’ve given in years. But, she earned it. LOL!

Hezbollah Chief Declares War on Israel After Militant Commander’s Death

Bring it…you vile bastard…Let us get this massacre of your ilk over with…NOW!

BEIRUT, Lebanon  —  Hezbollah’s chief on Thursday vowed to retaliate against Israeli targets abroad after accusing Israel of taking the fight beyond Lebanese borders by assassinating militant commander Imad Mughniyeh in Syria.

“You have killed Hajj Imad outside the natural battlefield,” Hassan Nasrallah said, addressing Israel and referring to Hezbollah’s longtime contention it only fights Israel within Lebanon and along their common border.“You have crossed the borders,” Nasrallah said in the fiery eulogy at the funeral of Mughniyeh in south Beirut. “With this murder, its timing, location and method — Zionists, if you want this kind of open war, let the whole world listen: Let this war be open.”

 Bring it now, coward of a false prophet.You sons of camel dung and pigs…BRING IT!

Movies disliked, and a movie awaited.

Rendition opened in Perth sometime during the last couple of weeks. I can’t say for sure when; the one time I did see the preview was about six months ago. My suspicion is that the distributors have opted for minimal publicity – contractual obligation is a nasty, cynical phrase, but maybe this time it fits like a glove.

The recent string of anti-war movies have been as popular in Australia as they were in the US – which is to say, about as popular as a barker’s egg on a wedding cake. No news to you folks over there, if this is typical, still you must be as heartened as I to know that the moviegoing public are ignoring these flicks.

Condoms For Clowns – sorry, Lions For Lambs didn’t last as long in the theaters as the pre-release publicity. In The Garden Of Elah is due soon, but I suspect that Tommy Lee Jones will be more of a crowd-puller than the story. I saw the preview last weekend, and I have to admit, I was tempted. Right up to the moment that Susan Sarandon appeared…

Lingering behind all these, of course, is Redacted. The red-headed stepchild of the family.

But these will all be gathering dust on the $2 for 7 days shelf at the video store by November, when Daniel Craig will return as James Bond 007 in The Quantum Of Solace.

Roald Dahl might have had a BFG. But I’m with Commander Bond. I’d much rather have a BFOG.

I just hope they’ve got a song as good as You Know My Name…

West Australian Surfer Wins Oakley Biggest Wave Award

MARGARET River surfer Alex “Alfy” Cater not only survived riding a terrifying 14m wave, but beat some of the nation’s best while doing it.

Cater rode into first place at the Oakley Surfing Life Biggest Wave Awards by surfing a 14m high wave at ‘Cow Bombie’ near Margaret River.

He edged out three other rides, recorded on the same day by Queenslander Mark Visser and Hawaiians Jamie Sterling and Ian Walsh, who travelled halfway round the globe to meet the swell at Cow Bombie last September.

“It was a pretty big day,” Cater said. “Right after a storm. The wind backed off and we thought, let’s do it.”

The award will open doors for him in the growing global big-wave competition field, he says.

Alongside this award, big-surf competitions are now held in South Africa, Hawaii and California.
“It’s something I really want to pursue if I can … I’ve been to Hawaii and California and met a lot of the guys who ride their big spots and I’d love to challenge them.”

The jet ski will come in handy too . Not long ago, Alfy and his tow partner Ian “Wooly” McPherson had to abandon their ski under a massive set of 10m waves waves at Cow Bombie.

“The ski conked out about 3m from the worst possible spot . We got three waves on the head and that was it for the ski.”

The fact that they were 6km from land at the time barely raises Cater’s eyebrow – which is a little clue as to the sort of person who takes on surf in this range.

Since being inaugurated five years ago, the Oakley Surfing Life Big Wave Awards have revealed a side of surfing long hidden behind the glittering world pro tour arena – a group of surfers who’ve used their home-grown skills and experience to push the sport’s natural limits, often without much publicity or attention outside their peers and slightly horrified onlookers.

“We’re all pretty rough and ready I suppose but we’re doing this because we love it,” he says. “In a way this award might change some things for me but it won’t change why I go surfing.”

Okay, so 14 metres is just a baby wave compared to the waves Angus Dei featured here… but it’s still a hell of a lot bigger than anything I’ve ever tried! And, Alfy’s a fellow West Aussie – we sandgropers have to stick together.

Wobbegongtastic! Two new species of shark found in Western Australia

spotted_wobbegong.jpgTWO new species of wobbegongs, otherwise known as carpet sharks, have been found in Western Australian waters.

WA Department of Fisheries shark researcher Justin Chidlow said there were now eight known wobbegong shark species in Australia.The new floral banded wobbegong has been spotted between Geraldton and Augusta and the new dwarf spotted wobbegong was found in shark fishery catches between Green Head and Mandurah, Mr Chidlow said.Wobbegongs, which are often sold in fish shops under the name of carpet shark, are probably the most common shark species seen by divers.

“It’s amazing to think that the new species have been present off our coast, but that it’s only now that they have been formally identified as separate and been added to the list of known wobbegong species,” he said.

“Wobbegongs were not as sleek looking as some of the better-known sharks and the new species helped reinforce the importance of the continental shelf off WA as an area where a large range of wobbegong species could be encountered.”

The colour of the floral banded species is mainly dark brown with yellowish blotches on the upper surface and white on the underbelly, whereas the adult of the dwarf spotted wobbegong was a lighter yellowish brown with large white blotches on top and creamy coloured underneath.
