I forgot to post this earlier because New Year Malaise, but here it is.
Firstly: I have always restricted my post times to early morning (around 6am Central). While this will continue — there will always be something for the Early Birds to read — I’m going to spread things out a little, especially when it comes to news and current events. This post is one of them. Next item:
Mostly, I resist reserving certain days for specific topics — other than the Monday Funnies and Friday’s Caption Competitions, of course. These will continue ad infinitum / nauseam.
Starting this weekend, however, the following will become standard:
- Saturdays will feature (more or less exclusively) Guy Stuff: guns, cars and tools (actual tools, not Democrat politicians), in varying assortments and combinations. The default will be a Gratuitous Gun Pic. On occasion, however, I might also post something about classical literature, music or fine art. Call it “Kim’s Culture Day”: gun culture, car culture, High Culture, whatever.
- Sundays will be devoted, as in days of yore, exclusively to pics of beautiful women. This will be in what I’ve labeled as “Kim’s Sesame Street”, in which there will be sundry pictures of beautiful women of all ages and periods of history, collated by the first letter of their Christian names — e.g. this Sunday could feature Ann-Margret, Amy Adams or Anna Magnani etc., while next Sunday might contain Brigitte Bardot, Barbara Mori, Blaze Starr and so on. The poses will always be sexy but mostly decorous (unless I succumb to Foul Male Lust and show boobs ‘n things).
Neither of the above will prevent me from posting pictures of similar nature during the week, of course, but weekday fare will consist of the usual snarling invective, ill-tempered rants and in general, my habitual shaking of the fist at authority figures, stupid people and Socialists [considerable overlap].
I trust this meets with general approval, but if it doesn’t, c’est la vie, as always.
One thing will not change: I don’t do guest posts, or do link swaps to other websites, so if you’re one of those assholes who loves the content of this place, sees a fit (because of a single article I once wrote) and wants to post something about fashion design, don’t bother. This is a one-man show.
And lastly: tonight’s Friday Night Music (which will not be a weekly fixture) features a musical composer of astonishing talent, except you probably never heard of him.
Oh, and may Santa have dropped one of these in yer stocking:
…and if not that, one of these:
And now it’s time for our Du Toit family Christmas tradition:
Yup. Full English. With Belgian waffles afterwards.
Merry Christmas, y’all.
Yeah, yesterday’s colonoscopy went as expected:
…and no cancer, nor even pre-cancer (final results in a couple of weeks, but the doctor was matter-of-fact about the whole thing).
Actually, the procedure wasn’t as bad as the preparation thereof:
…but on to more pleasant topics…
Today I am having a colonoscopy.
Normal service should resume tomorrow.
Update: Back home. My ass hasn’t felt this way since freshman year at boarding school.
I find myself curiously lethargic these days, when it comes to blogging. Oh sure, the occasional action of some politician (e.g. Barr’s, yesterday) will pierce the blanket of lethargy and cause me to start looking around for the hammer and nails (okay, the AK-47 and a bandolier of cartridges), but mostly, I’m of the same mind as Taki’s Jim Goad, who took a week off from politics and feels all the better for it.
No matter what I write or how I vote, the debt is higher, there’s no wall, immigration is unchecked, Israel is still America’s master, I have no say in how the government spends even a dollar of the money it bleeds from me, nearly all journalists are dishonest, most people are deeply and incurably stupid, Republicans and Democrats are two arms on the same Frankenstein, the USA is culturally fractured beyond repair, the press still uses the euphemism “teens” for “black rioters,” women still make false rape claims while denying the very existence of false rape claims, white people are being systematically dehumanized by the same propagandists who scoff at the very notion that white people are being systematically dehumanized, trannies remain “the gender they were assigned at birth” no matter if they spend a million dollars to mutilate themselves, the “oppressed” would be just as rotten as the “oppressors” if only given the chance…etc. etc.
Read all of it to get the full flavor.
So for the next week or so, expect nothing more from this blog than gratuitous gun pics, studies of beautiful women, fine works of art and music, discussions of cars and… errrr wait a minute.
But like Joad, I’m taking a holiday from politics for as long as I can stand it.
Let’s just hope that the politicians don’t fuck it up, like they do so many things.
From Liz Sheld at PJM:
Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), chairman of the House Oversight Committee said on a Sunday snuff show that Trump’s tweets telling The Squad to “go back to where they came from” reminded him of the time he was told to “go back from where he came from.” Cummings made his remarks to George Stephanopoulos, who also revealed that has been told to “go back to where he came from.” This is a new epidemic, so many Democrats have been told to “go back,” why are we only hearing about it until now?
I have to say that nobody has ever told me to go back to where I came from, but that may be because I’ve made every effort not to change the United States nation as I see it, but to preserve it — original intent of the Founders, traditional American values and traditions, strict Constitutional construction, reverence for the flag and all it stands for, unswerving loyalty to our Armed Forces, respect for law and order, paying taxes, serving on a jury, defending the United States against criticism when traveling overseas (okay, I’m not sure whether a drunken fistfight with a Scot constitutes actual defense, but hey)… and of course, I don’t think I have to prove my undying support for the Second Amendment (along with the nochschleppers in the Bill of Rights). Frankly, if someone were to tell me to go back, I’d have nowhere to go. I’m here, and I’m staying — to the utter dismay, I hope, of liberal assholes and socialists everywhere.
As for these fucking Socialist Congressweasels (we all know who they are), the same cannot be said.
I’m not setting myself up as some paragon of civic virtue, here; but at the same time, I would suggest that my version of civic virtue is more in line with mainstream America than theirs — and I suspect that there are far more like me than there are of them — even among “traditional” Democrat voters.
I guess we’ll just have to wait for the 2020 elections to see if what I say is true.
