The argument that I find the most outlandishly bankrupt is that he has suffered for thirty years–constant fear of apprehension, unable to travel to certain countries, missing out on awards events, etc–and that is enough punishment, so leave him alone. The only reason he has had to endure these supposed indignities is that he has been a motherfucking fugitive from the fucking law.

Fuck him, and fuck his suffering of indignities. He should have thought of that when he raped a child and then fled justice.

Rich-Ass Opera Fans Boo Opera

September 27, 2009

Am I really supposed to give a flying fuck about this shit?

THE fracas during curtain calls for the Metropolitan Opera’s new production of Puccini’s “Tosca” last Monday is just the latest episode in a grand history of operatic booing. Frank expressions of displeasure pierced the applause at the conclusion of Act II and exploded when the production team took its bows at the end of the opera. Many in the audience took umbrage at the villain’s lewd advances toward a statue of the Madonna; at the failure by Tosca to make her customary sweeping exit after stabbing the villain to death; and at the substitution, after an awkward pause, of a stunt double for her suicidal leap.

So, some rich-ass motherfuckers are booing at the motherfucking opera? And this is a “fracas”? Fuck me.

Easiest Veal Stew On Earth

September 27, 2009

Two pounds cubed stewing veal (I’m not sure what cut it is; I just ask the butcher for stew veal and this is what he gives me), 1-2 inch cubed carrots, turnips, parsnips, and onions, about 1-1.5 cups each, 2 cups cheap-ass pinot noir, 1 cup demi glace, 1 cup chicken broth, 1 can Muir Glen chopped tomatoes, sprigs of thyme, tarragon, and sage, salt and pepper to taste.

Just put all the shit in a dutch oven and simmer the shit for about three hours, and then turn up the heat, add some flour or cornstarch to thicken, and reduce the shit for about ten minutes.

Robbie Cano (UPDATED: 200!)

September 26, 2009

The Yankees are so stacked with huge bats, that Robinson Cano has been totally under the radar. But he reached 24 homers and 199 hits today. w00t!


September 25, 2009

Oh, crap. Poor Lester just got fucking NAILED with a batted ball HARD on the inside of his right knee. You could hear the fucking “clock” sound when it hit him. I hope he’s ok. He managed to limp off the field on his own power. I hate to see shit like that, even to a hated Red Sock player. Fuck.

UPDATE: Apparently, he’s fine.

Management 101

September 25, 2009

Some people’s answer to everyfuckingthing that involves other people not doing what is expected or desired is to make a rule. Then when they make the rule, and behavior still doesn’t meet expectations or desires, their answer is nothing more than an indignant whine: “But I *told* them what they are supposed to do!!” Fucking morons.

Making a rule and telling people to obey it is pretty much the single least effective way available to get people to do something. The way to get people to do something is to create a system of reinforcers and incentives that make people *want* to do the thing you want them to do.

When the answer of a manager or administrator to a failure of action is, “But I *told* them to do it”, you know you are dealing with a total fucking incompetent.
