The blog of the wandering douche

For recognition of the inhumane, thoughtless, greedy, and the negligent. And douchebags.

I actually feel shitty for using the word “douche” on this one – for one thing, it feels like a trivialisation, and additionally, it’s an inadequate condemnation in this instance by an order of magnitude.

So Syria is “working thru” its own arab spring right now. It won’t be a bloodless affair, it won’t be a smooth transition, but if the behaviour of state forces is as alleged in this Al Jazeera piece, then that place sure as fuck needs regime change. I really can’t get my head around the inhumanity of this.

Dana Rohrabacher is a pernicious asshat

leave a comment »

With logic this harmful I’m not sure I want to even bother taking the time to learn how to pronounce this assholes name properly. I’m glad I only have to type it…man, think of what his wife goes through – she has to pronounce it and sleep with the bastard.

Ok, so a cliff notes version? Cut down all the trees, because they contribute to greenhouse gas emissions. This is because during part of the diurnal photosynthetic cycle, trees emit CO2. This is interesting because human beings also emit CO2 when we exhale, so if he’s putting this forward as a solution then we may need to think about killing everyone. You guys in?

Karma gives the noble act of civil protest a cuddle in England

Two-link one-source posts seem to be my fleeting fancy. Here’s a heads-up on the douchebaggery of the metropolitan fuzz. It’s nice however when it’s possible to point out that justice is on to them. Go, justice, go.

Canada, North America’s sensible conscience.

This is just a quick post to make the point that coming up soon, Canadians will have the chance to choose between the future or the past.

Hi Canada – don’t fuck it up like we did. Just saying.

Zombie spawn II

leave a comment »

And so parliament passed the zombie digital copyright bill under urgency.

Possibly the best aspect of this blog for me personally is being able to spew forth with the most florid vitriol I can be fucked conceiving of at the random moments I get the urge to post. I don’t have that kind of bile in me tonight, somehow this is above that because of the immediacy and closeness of the fundamental shift that has occurred.

In the shadow of this deceitful resolution, I am not possessed of my customary grace. I assure you that normal service will resume soon.

Zombie spawn of ACTA undead in NZ

leave a comment »

See this handsome back square? This is your brain on New Zealand internet. Oh, no, sorry – I totally got that wrong; It’s what your internet access will look like if you have a copyright infringement lodged against you under the govt’s new copyright amendment bill. No, sorry, it’s the bright glow of synapses firing like a universe of creative fireworks in the mind of MP Simon Power during the intense period of thought and reflection that went into the crafting of this new piece of legislation.

Actually, I am full of shit. Power is a douche in the sway of the big-business interests (full of lobby dollars, using the US political system as their proxy to lean on other countries) that make insipid mainstream cinema, music, and television. In short, to stop people from exchanging copyrighted information that is important to them, NZ is going to take away their right to access the internet, instead of redefining how copyright applies in a medium that was designed for bit-perfect reproduction.

This is pathetic blind kotowing of the highest order. Bring on the Blackout.

This post bought to you by the excellence that is www.geekzone.co.nz.

Bumnugget o’ the day

somealphanumericbabbleChef’s special. Scott Walker, one of the leading lights of deconstructive partisan politics in America (ok, so there’s a galaxy of little lights, and it’s not like he’s one of the more significant luminaries) has taken on staff (at taxpayer expense) one of his donor’s sons.

Fair and balanced?

Also, I really wanted to use this sweet-ass CC image from Brotherxii’s flickr stream. Those folk protesting in Wisconsin deserve a lot of kudos, if you haven’t been following it, then go track you down a recap of the lead-up, then catch up with more recent details via this.
