Stray Polyps from the Internest
Pwnisher hosted a competition that resulted in this mesmerizing compilation of entries based on the same “simple” animation:
It’s way beyond my capabilities, and I’m surprised no one walked the poor bastard up the stairs.
Nice find, Jonco.
The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band is always a fun romp, and they have a new album in the works.
Rev. Peyton – Guitar/Vocals
Breezy Peyton – Washboard/Vocals
Sad Max Senteney – Drums/Vocals
The Mighty Mighty Bosstones don’t believe in anything anymore. It’s from their 11th studio album, When God Was Great (2021).
Yep, that’ll do for now. Have a great weekend, watch out for the bugbears and we’ll throw something on the floor to kick around tomorrow.
The California Primaries are coming up on June 5th, the campaign flyers are filling up mail boxes in every neighborhood, and everyone is eyeballing the race for Governor except for those who aren’t.
California has “Open Primaries” which allows one to vote for any candidate regardless of one’s party affiliation, i.e., Democrats may vote for Republican candidates and vice-versa. Although it may sound reasonable to some, it has the potential to allow one political party to determine the nominee of the opposing party, which dilutes and undermines the credibility of election results. Getting the weaker candidate of the opposing party nominated is the game.
The race for California Governor is interesting this year, because there’s a chance, albeit remote, that the voters might wrest control from the incumbent socialists. The top four contenders as of 28 May are:
Gavin Newsom (D)
John Cox (R)
Antonio (aka Tony Villar) Villaraigosa (D)
Travis Allen (R).
Now back to the campaign flyers. Check this out.
That’s a typical flyer of half-truths and misinformation, but who paid for it?
Major funding from
Reed Hastings (Netflix CEO)
Eli Broad (NYC multi-billionaire, philanthropist, anti-2nd Amendment, pro-taxes)
Michael Bloomberg (ex-Mayor of New York City)
Note that the not-so-cleverly-embedded “Hillary Logo” attempts to equate John Cox to HRC. Pheeew.
California State Assemblyman Travis Allen is certainly qualified for the position of Governor, but he’s a long shot compared to John Cox, so why would people opposing Cox support Allen? Seems obvious.

A high-speed drag race. A faulty hood latch. The driver’s view is blocked, and the gaping maw of certain death opens to quench its eternal hunger for blood and souls.
Hurtling through the space-time continuum, warping the laws of physics, a hero arrives in the nick of time.
In possession of unlimited mental powers yet untested, Captain Oblivious wrests the will of the power steering from the speeding vehicle. He laughs in the face of danger. “Ha, ha, ha,” muses Our Hero, as he maneuvers the machine away from peril and toward the relative safety of the raceway’s emergency sand trap.
Unbeknownst to Our Hero, the driver has already panicked. The driver screams as he jams on the brake pedal with both feet, and Captain Oblivious is thrown off at high velocity. Like a watermelon seed pinched between forefinger and thumb, Captain Oblivious is spit from the universe at the speed of whatever. The car slides to a safe stop in the sand.
With his mind swept clean of the memory of recent events, Captain Oblivious finds himself squatting naked in the vapor-ridden 10th dimension, fuzzily pondering his next assignment.
