When You Wish Upon A (T.V.) Star,

Other than wishing on a star, how else could anyone explain the continuing careers of Will Ferrell, Kirstie Alley, and the greenlighting of such horrid crap (even by what are humorously called “t.v. standards”) as “Super Fun Night“, and except for the always brilliant Martin Mull, “Dads“? It took some deep thinking, but the only way I could imagine making those two shows worse would be adding Patricia Heaton or Teri Hatcher to either cast. 

T.V. was called a “Vast Wasteland” in 1961 by Newton Minnow, the former head of the FCC, but the depth of that statement has gone under valued, much in the way my mother’s statement that “…anyone can grow up to be president” later came back to haunt me when “W” took the White House and used it as his own personal toilet to crap on the constitution of the United States.

Now, 50+ years on this curse on us is still circling the drain… and by the way, in the first paragraph I included Mr. Ferrell, the unfunniest funny guy ever in this rant because it was television that got him noticed and now sustains him in endless T.V. commercials that link up to the soon to be released and sooner to be forgotten “Anchorman II” floater.

Picking The Best Tool For The Job

Those huge mega funders of the floundering Romney / Ryan campaign will soon have to decide when enough is enough and acknowledge that they’ve reached that undebatable time to pull the plug and dump this steaming load so they can move on and find their next simple minded malleable moron mope. For an example, think about the brilliance that was displayed by Ronald Reagan, Dan Quayle, “W”, and of course those unforgettable no matter how hard you try buffoons, the circus that was the McCain & Palin twofer.

There’s Always A Proper Tool For The Job

After being smashed by the coming election landslide, and after Mitt’s Magic Underwear magically change to Magic Depends and they throw him under the bus, they will need to find a “new” someone who will be perfect for their next ideal candidate, someone that they can mold into an even more efficient kind of money funnel that will enable them to extract every possible dollar out of what’s left the American Economy.

Lyin’ Ryan Has A Sad!

I could almost find a little pity for Poor Pitiful Paul Lyin’ Ryan, eh… almost. It was, after all, that lame chimp’s own choice to go running down the dock, sprint up the ramp, and then jump on board the Titanic, A.K.A. the Romney campaign, all this as it was starting to set sail on a…. let’s call it a three hour tour, you know, a three hour tour.

The Offshored, Downsized & Outsourced 2012 SS Minnow

The main reason that you’re never going to see much pity from me for Ryan is because he’s a scumbag weasel (censorship forces the use of a weaker alternative descriptive here), a guy that helped put the Koch back in sucker and will have earned whatever he gets, and if the world is even a little fair, he’ll get a bonus kick in the ass to top it off on his way out the door.

Once the Koch Brothers and their ilk proceed with the inevitable and flush Romney down the tube, I wonder how long it will take before they come around to the idea that it’s past time for them to match up Paul Ryan with his Kosher clone  (A.K.A. Eric Cantor who eventually will be seduced and abandoned), and set those boys in motion to gear up for the 2016 campaign cycle?

What a ticket! The combination of a somewhat dim hard core even though obviously buyable Tea Party Catholic, to run with an unrepentant and uber-bitter self hating beyond Tea Party clever Jew. This will defy any of the easy type of categorization that the media loves to do, in the end it’s Dumb and Dumber writ large.

Hey, It’s Funny Photos Time!!!

Tina Fey revealed to be a Vulcan? Does she get to say “Live Long and Perspire, it’s Saturday Night Live” when she’s (pardon the expression) doing Sarah Palin?

Isn’t McCain doing a perfect imitation of “Calvin” from Calvin and Hobbes?

Quick Barack, jump into the  transmografier!

Dick Cheney below, shown in his Halloween costume from last year. The news is that this will be his way of blending in next year when he and “W” run off to live in extradition proof Abu Dhabi.

Speaking of Halloween, remember to drink in moderation, or this could happen to you:

Do you think the lines extending from the butt shown in the drawing below are to show which direction you should move your ass, or do they represent the physical results you may have from shots fired just over your head?

Never one to give up on her lost cause, Laura teaches and preaches to the choir.

Here’s a link for this page should you like to forward it to either someone you care about, or perhaps someone you’d like to piss off, whichever one happens to apply:

6 months, max……

That’s my prediction for the duration of the marriage of Jenna Bush and that idiot Henry Hager. Picture someone running at full speed down the pier trying to jump on the Titanic as it’s leaving its mooring, is that a clear enough image of Henry? 

It will probably take even less time for the new groom to sweep himself clean out of the love nest he’ll try to make for the lesser of the two first daughters, too bad he got the one that looks like her commander in chimp father, instead of the (i.m.h.o.) cuter one that looks like her mother. 

Mmmm, bragging rights to being married to the daughter of the worst ever president of the U.S.A. will quickly drop even further in value once the love birds lose their access to the white house, especially if “W” leaves office wearing tar and feathers as so many of us expect.  

Perhaps at the wedding reception they’ll have a frog march procession in place of a conga line?

Gotta wonder about the pre-nup, were there stipulations regarding non-disclosure of stupid things said off camera by the papa-in-law?

Initially speaking…

Alas, once again broadcasting from the back of the bus….

My last name starts with the letter “W”, the same as the middle initial of America’s 1st Asshole, George “W” Bush. It’s very scary that I share all three out of a possible three initials with that moron, but with the order flipped around. Do I have a touch of the dark side hidden away?

In my life, this little inverted “M” has often left me, but for the existence of Annette and Stanley Zurwalski in my elementary school days in Detroit, far at the end of the line for most things. With the standard seating chart logic used during that time, you could usually find me in the back of the classroom, far from a place to catch the finer points of a lecture. To the best of my spotty at best memory, the only exception has been during the third or fourth grade, when the newly developed polio vaccine shot was given to school kids, and some administrator at the school decided to start at the (no pun intended) rear end of the alphabet. Ouch. Thanks, no thanks.

This comes to mind now because last week I received a call from a company located in Maryland that was looking for a sound recordist in the Los Angeles area for a Discovery Channel shoot. When I asked how they got my name so I could thank whoever passed it to them, they said it was from a directory that lists (among other things) crew people that work in the film industry. I’ve been in this book for over 25 years, and this is the first time I’ve ever gotten a call for a job from it. I asked them why they had not been able to find anyone in the first 98% of the listings, and the woman I spoke to said only that they had decided to start at the back of the list, for whatever reason.

Could it be that Eric Zeehandelaar is dead, or maybe he’s just gone out of town?

Sometimes I think that I’d like to start over with a name something like Aaron Aardvark, just to see what it’s like to get the jump on almost everything else in life. 

What say you Billy Arvia, you lucky bastard?

BTW, here’s a link to Billy’s usually very funny blog: http://www.triplebee.squarespace.com
