Fuck those fired U.S. Attorneys, let’s get some answers to this shit!

Fuck those fired U.S. Attorneys

I'd consider fucking Carol Lam (only with her and her husband's permission, of course), not cause I have an Asian fetish, or anything like that, but I'm particular when it comes to my partner's possession, or lack, of a vagina. One other fired U.S. Attorney is properly equipped, but she appears to fall outside of my acceptable age range (+/- 16 years) for consideration of potential liaisons (not that the other 6 fired U.S. Attorneys aren't great lovers, I'm sure, but I personally don't swing that way).

But on the same subject, her replacement isn't not doable (and maybe even slightly more doable than Lam).

As far as that Mencia shit, it's interesting how comedians police each other given they have no copyright protection (for some odd reason, everything else under the sun can be copyrighted, but not jokes).

In some ways, they seem more effective at preventing the unauthorized reuse (through social rather than legal means) of their material than other artists whose works are covered by copyright.

It's within the realm of possibility that he came to the same observations from a different direction independently from the comics he's accused of stealing from (but that seems doubtful).

He's dead as far as other comics are concerned, there is no greater crime than stealing jokes, it will be interesting to see if that scares off Comedy Central (which may figure that the audience won't know or care about this scandal).

Rule for the week. Every comment must use the word FUCK. This rule ends at midnight Saturday (EST). Obviously this only applies to this blog.

Failure to use the Fuck Rule will result in deletion of said fuckless comment.

Rules query: Do we have to use the word FUCK, or can we get by using some variant, such as fucker, fucking, or fucked?

Also, if we merely quote a prior comment without independently writing fuck, will our comments be, well, fucked?

VW: pmmuuuo

1. Variants - Fuck, yes!

2. Fuck no. But be careful. If I feel you are avoiding the rule by quoting other comments in this thread I may show you the yellow card and require you complete a sentence diagram.

Makes me think I just don't fucking understand this blogging thingee.

Great moments in cinema:
"I had the option to drink real beer or soda," Tochi explained. "So I thought, ‘Fuck that, I’ll take beer!’ In the movie, Tim (Poindexter) gives me pills so I don’t get drunk, but we just all got drunker…and drunker…and drunker. By the time you see me winning, I was three sheets to the wind. I was just…so bombed. When you see that smile on my face on that last turn – that’s really how drunk I was."

On a fucking similar note, to my Mencia comment earlier, even the fucking author of the DMCA says it sucks balls.

And in a moment of internet related serendipity, this was posted at Sundries today.

Is this week in comments in the comments sponsored by this film (which I assume is profanity laced)?

The Sundries link reminded me of a cartoon I need to link to on Friday. It's fucking perfect.

Love the commercials for Grindhouse, but don't think I'll go see it. If this week doesn't have a sponsor it at least needs a soundtrack.

So I'm contemplating combining the Fuck Rule with a return to Haiku Thursday.

Almost sounds like an art project. I wonder if I can get a grant. Or a BloggingHead appearance.

Tuesday Trivia XXXIX

1. Don't recognize the name.
2. Florida Marlins.
3. Gyllenhall. I know this because I happened to catch him on The Daily Show and Stewart made a joke about him being in two gay cowboy movies. The only reason to watch City Slickers is for the line: if hate were people, I'd be China. That fucking rules.
4.Leichenstein? I'm wrong, but I'm not sure what is the correct answer.
5. St. Elsewhere.
6. Qwerty? Yes!
7. An old blind man. I think that might actually be correct.

Five for seven, including #7 itself. I think that's only the second #7 I've nailed. Unless I'm wrong. Then the "nailing" would be representative of most of my carpentry efforts.

Here's an interesting blog post by someone who definitely isn't afraid to us the word "fuck". And here I thought I was an angry pissed-off type....

I think I've found a new blog love. This guy makes me seem like a bright-eyed optimist! Fuckin' A! Favorite bit, discussing the Amanda Marcotte - Edwards dust-up:

Third, official webloggers like the recently dispatched Edwards android, Amanda Marcotte, will continue to provide inane, attention-seeking distractions while proving that having anything to do with weblogs is an extremely bad idea. (There will be at least one "crisis of conscience" blog-drama that will make you pray for cancer.)

Wow, the guy's also a prophet!

I believe the children are the future, and I also believe that as long as we are all teaching them all this hate . . ., They're FUCKED!"

Quoted from TheNMN's latest YouTube, and I fuckin' agree.

Rampant homophobia within the mainstream of the black community is kind of a dirty little secret, afterall, minorities can't be prejudiced in some people's eyes.

I know it was interesting, you stupid fuck.

Remember that old post about Glass Mamet? Now you can listen to it.

It's cool, he don't even know I live in LA.

Laughed out loud.

Good links, guys. Thanks. Fuck this Fuck Rule, it's annoying the total fuck out of me. But I'll fucking power through and get through the fucking week.

Tony Bourdain: STROKE THE CHEFS/FUCK THE COOKS:
You'd think after the damage done by their recently convicted former president, the questions raised about their whole purpose, and the nauseating revelations of how little money the James Beard Foundation were actually raising for scholarships, that they'd maybe learned something. That they'd adapted, moved on, become more sensitive to the widely held perception that they are in fact, nothing more than a private dining society, a high-rent memorial to a much disliked crank who--once a year, throws a lavish stroke-and-choke where corporate sponsors can "honor" prominent chefs and restaurant folk at what remains--for better or worse--the "Oscars of food" ceremony.

Apparently, you'd be wrong.


Read the rest.

Currently, this Reuters story is headlined: Wildlife at risk under U.S. plan: environmentalists.

Too fucking bad. I don't care how endangered those environmentalists are, I'm still building my shopping center in the middle of their habitat. You want to save them, you move them.

The FUCKING TOPIC FOR NEXT WEEK

When we'll finally be past this stupid ass rule of mine. So Quoted needs a theme song. Therefore, all blogs need a theme song. Well, maybe not all, but at least the ones I can think of a theme song for.

You can think of one for your blog or have one assigned by me. We'll also nominate and discuss songs for other blogs. For So Quoted, I have a a handful I'm thinking of and perhaps all 5 of you can vote. Or nominate something else. I'll add the selected theme song to the vox jukebox.

Stunning work by xwl. That goes in the scrapbook.

I'm not a big fan of Achewood, I guess it just doesn't wok for me on a consistent basis. But there's one that's so perfect, I pull it up ever couple of months. Since it would be hard to beat, I'll rescind the Fuck Rule with this strip.

So Quoted proudly present Achewood's FUCK YOU FRIDAY.

The way of The Swayze:

"I want you to be nice until it's time to not be nice."

Swayze's Road House morality can be boiled down to this quote, which defines him as an easygoing sort unafraid to answer the call when the clock strikes "ass-kick." In Point Break, he's a sweetheart who robs banks to fund his surfing expeditions, thought he switches from buddy to badass in a heartbeat. He comes to the aid of Keanu Reeves once he sees that Reeves is making an earnest effort to stand up to a gaggle of bullying surf Nazis; later, he inspires Reeves to man up and jump out of an airplane without a parachute. But while Swayze honors men of action, he also understands that there's a time for inaction. When one of his Road House bouncer disciples asks what he should do if a customer calls him a cocksucker, Swayze tells him to do nothing, because the word is just "two nouns combined to elicit a response." The Swayze won't let anyone goad him. He goes his own way.
