Retro Ice

I just can’t get over it. It’s my April Vibe Dingbat.

After recently reporting (ha!) the comeback Tour of Vanilla Ice WITH MC Hammer, the interest I had as a 12 year old has been re-perked.

Have you ever…

… blogged in the nude?

And are you willing to admit it?

And there’s at least one regular poster who can’t say no.


Let’s expand this… Have you ever been at the computer… in the nude?


Now’s not the time, Spot!!1

OK, OK, so you’re on the other side of the planet, nowadays…

A PET dog’s underwear fetish almost cost him his life when he swallowed his owner’s G-string over the Easter long weekend.

Guess where. Yep.

Let History Record that Texas Lead American Reformation

I love being a Texan. Here’s one reason why. Texans are the first – but not the last, to be sure – to get fed up with our intrusive federal government.

“AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry joined state Rep. Brandon Creighton and sponsors of House Concurrent Resolution (HCR) 50 in support of states’ rights under the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

“I believe that our federal government has become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of our citizens, and its interference with the affairs of our state,” Gov. Perry said. “That is why I am here today to express my unwavering support for efforts all across our country to reaffirm the states’ rights affirmed by the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. I believe that returning to the letter and spirit of the U.S. Constitution and its essential 10th Amendment will free our state from undue regulations, and ultimately strengthen our Union.”

Perry continued: “Millions of Texans are tired of Washington, DC trying to come down here to tell us how to run Texas.””

You go, Rick. More here, along with bracing video.

This is no small deal. The federal government has been pretending that the 10th Amendment doesn’t exist for almost a hundred years now – basically, since the end of the civil war. If governors start taking this to court, “The United States” could well become, “These United States” again – as they were pre-Lincoln – which would be nothing but good news. America was designed to be a federation of states, not a unitarian state. The US is just too big for that (As are Canada and Australia, for that matter).

One for the ladies, Restraining orders.

This post is intended to give  a little bit of advicefor ladies who may be seeking a restraining order against a violent or abusive ex-partner. (or weirdo)

Its written from an Australian legal perspective, but I think the general nature of the advice will be helpful to most people in this situation.


First off I’m not a lawyer, however I am a Justice of the Peace in Western Australia and am authorised to grant restraining orders, so I am speaking with a bit of legal knowledge on this subject.


One of my biggest worries with ladies that seek restraining orders is that often it is the woman who feels shame in seeking the order in the first place. I can understand some feelings of embarrassment, regret, or even “what the f#ck was I thinking”  regarding the situation, however it must be said the shame should be on the violator, not the victim.

To many times ladies feel the need to keep quiet, even to neighbours and friends, the fact that they have a person they are concerned enough about to be in fear of assault. This is all topsy turvey. Ladies, if you have been assaulted you aren’t to blame for anything other than misjudging the bloke you were with.


As for the blokes (and usually it is a bloke, so I will use the male as my example for simplicity) who do this. You are dickheads. If you were dumb enough to abuse a woman you pretty well automatically should be out of her life. You are no better than a bloke who kicks his dog or hits kids. Its not big nor is it clever.

If you beat or stalk women, this is you.
