Trey Parker and “Book of Mormon” Cleaning Up at Tonys

So far, Best Score, Direction, Choreography, Orchestrations and Featured Actress.

And now, Best Book.

Sound Design. Scenic Design.

Oh, and Best Musical.

Hard to believe it all started here, sort of:

[UPDATE:] Here’s Andrew Rannells singing “I Believe:”

If The Cops Don’t Getcha, The Yarn Bombs Will

New York! You’d better have a plan, know where you’re going and how to get there and not fall by the way-side, or else things may happen to you. Strange things. Colorful things. Woolly things.


Meet the “Yarn Bomb.”  (link h/t: Strange)

Oh noes, looks like this one’s coming down with a case of the crochet too!

These bits of incendiary yarnwork were quietly parked in the Financial District, where I discovered them last week, during such thoroughly moist weather that they seemed as much fungal growth as art piece.

Mon dieu(chebag)


Bernard-Henri Lévy starts off well enough in defense of his pal, IMF Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who is accused of sexually assaulting a worker at the Hotel Sofitel in New York:

I do not know what actually happened Saturday, the day before yesterday, in the room of the now famous Hotel Sofitel in New York.

Lévy should have stopped there. But he went on:

I do not know—but, on the other hand, it would be nice to know, and without delay—how a chambermaid could have walked in alone, contrary to the habitual practice of most of New York’s grand hotels of sending a “cleaning brigade” of two people, into the room of one of the most closely watched figures on the planet.

Oh, so now the “chambermaid” is under suspicion for going about her duties without an escort? Lévy again:

This morning, I hold it against the American judge who, by delivering him to the crowd of photo hounds, pretended to take him for a subject of justice like any other.

Well, he is “a subject of justice like any other.” At least, that’s how it’s supposed to work.

Jesus, what an asshole.

Ground Zero Becomes An All-Faith Par-Tay

I'm Muslim Don't Panic
Can this guy relax now, please?

The cheering could be heard by the time I got to Broadway: “USA! USA!,” sometimes varied with “FUCK O-SA-MA!” or a few times, in sing-song, “GUESS who’s DE—EAD!” It was probably about one AM, and bunches of mostly young people were coming down Broadway, crossing Park Row, and heading down Vesey Street, over which the Twin Towers had loomed almost ten years ago.

Naja? Nada.

The epic adventure of the escaped baby cobra is almost perfect.* It just needs a little something. Something like this:

@Bronx Zookeeper.

Oh, like you’ve never lost anything.

Now it’s perfect.

Bloomberg Sinks Ship; A Blizzard To Remember

Blame Was General

Yes, the newspapers were right: blame was general all over the island. It was falling on every blurt of the hard little man, on his deputy mayor, falling thickly in the rag of Rupert and, farther eastward, thickly falling onto mutinous Sanitation plows. It was falling, too, upon every part of the lonely salt stores in the shed where Michael’s glory (and his presidential ambition) lay buried…..

Biscuit Attempts to Burn Through NYC Blizzard Snow with Eyeball Laser Beams [UPDATED]


That’s the “view” from our front window due to the insane blizzard that whipped through Brooklyn last night. Biscuit probably thinks we still haven’t opened the shade for her. Because her brain is the size of an almond.

p.s. You can comment at the link above.

I just voted! Yay!

I don’t think I’ve ever had as much fun voting against someone as I did this morning not voting for Carl “Horrible Fucking Person” Paladino. Yay! Please post your election reports in the comments. I was surprised how many people were voting in Brooklyn at 6:15 am (especially considering there are no nail-biters here), but I’ve never voted that early so maybe it’s normal.

Mosquephrenia, or What If Pam Geller Gave A Hate Speech And I Didn’t Go?

Call me easily distracted. Two September 11 rallies, one pro-, and one anti-.  I could have gone to the one with such luminaries of Bigotopia as Pam Gellar and Andrew Breitbart, but I was waylaid by these citizens hashing it out in the streets, and just never made it to the Bigs.

Pity, too! I missed running into delightful people such as these.

Blognitive Dissonance: Not Exactly Norman Rockwell’s America

The reality of the 9/11 NYC Mosque Protest, via Pam Geller:

The nice, cuddly America that Pam and the NYC Mosque protesters haul out of mothballs at Christmas, see behind their eyelids when they go to sleep at night, and claim they want to “take back” from the Libtard Socialists:

Geert Wilders Channels Criswell at NYC Mosque Protest

Crap life imitates crap art.

Xenophobic Eurotrash corpse-fucker Geert Wilders’ prologue to a preposterous, low-brow fairy-tale about honoring the dead by hating the living:

Dear friends, May I ask you to be silent for ten seconds? Just be silent and listen. Ten seconds. And listen… What we hear are the sounds of life in the greatest city on earth.
No place in the world, no place in human history, is as richly varied and vibrant and dynamic as New York City. You hear the cars, you hear the people, you hear them rushing to their various destinations, you hear the sounds of business and of pleasure, you hear the cheers, you hear the cries, the buzzing sounds of human activity. And that is how it should be.

Always. Now close your eyes – I know it’s a beautiful day, but close your eyes. I have been told that this day nine years ago was just such a beautiful day—remember, or try to remember, or try to imagine the sounds which were heard here on this spot under this same blue sky exactly nine years ago. The sound of shock, the sound of destruction, the sound of panic, the sound of pain, the sound of terror.

Did New York deserve this? Did America deserve this? Did the West deserve this?  What, my friends, would you say to people who argue that New York, that America, that the West had itself to blame for those horrible sounds?

Flamboyant, coffin-sleeping fake psychic Criswell’s prologue to a preposterous, low-budget space-opera about subjugating the living by reanimating the dead:

Greetings, my friends! We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. And remember, my friends; future events such as these will affect you in the future. You are interested in the unknown, the mysterious, the unexplainable; that is why you are here. And now for the first time we are bringing to you the full story of what happened on that fateful day. We are giving you all the evidence, based only on the secret testimonies of the miserable souls who survived this terrifying ordeal. The incidents, the places, my friends, we can not keep this a secret any longer; let us punish the guilty, let us reward the innocent. My friends, can your heart stand the shocking facts about grave robbers from outer space?

RR Report: PICKLED! Live From The Burlington Coat Mosque

August 28th was a day like any other, filled with those events that alter and illuminate our lives—as long as you weren’t at some tentless chafing-dishless revival in Washington DC!

For instance,  there I was that afternoon, checking out my friendly neighborhood Burlington Coat Mosque, and could it be? Were my eyes lying? No, there IT was: PICKLE!

Note to John Derbyshire: It’s Called “Google”

Heh. Under the headline “Taking Over the Streets?” Derbyshire at NRO publishes photos from an email fan which the writer avers are “an accurate picture of every Friday afternoon in several locations throughout New York City where there are mosques with a large number of Muslims that cannot fit into the mosque.” Rather than verify the images up-front, he milks their Wholly Speculative Outrage Content, then leaves it to his readers to do his journalism for him:

If this kind of obstruction of roads and sidewalks is really going on in Nurse Bloomberg’s city — where a restaurateur can get a four-digit fine for placing a chair on the sidewalk without the proper permit — it’s a disgrace. But give me the facts, someone, please.

Fortunately, co-Cornerite Yuval Levin hipped him to an online Snopes debunking that correctly identifies the images as scenes from NYC’s annual Muslim Day Parade. However, a quick Google search of Muslim+Prayer+New York would have led him to a June 23 rant by Arch Islamofreakoutista Pam Geller, without having to rely on a well-known source of Liberal Disinformation

Scary Mooslin Supports Mosque Protestors’ Rights

Eat Pray Swim: Jabir heard about Park 51, or the Mosque, or the Cordoba Center, or Jihadi’s Playhouse, from the news stories about it, and he’s looking forward to the cooking school.

Another in a series of interviews I did at the rally against the (non) Ground Zero (not really) Mosque, in patented PollyWobbleVision®, although the camera doesn’t shake nearly as much as when I was interviewing those two biker guys. Odd, that.
