BBC Try to Stop Offending Islamic State… & All the Other Ones Too (2/2)

Hope you enjoyed the first instalment!

Here is more pitiful bien-pensant claptrap from the BBC, following their recent flamboyantly privileged nitpicking over the term ‘Islamic State.’

The ‘Republicains’ of Sarkozy are now the ‘soi-disant Republicans,’ because some members of other parties believe that they are the true inheritors of ‘la Republique.’

BBC journalists must never speak of the Lega Nord, because the Lega Nord cannot speak for all northern Italians. Anyway, where does the North end and the South begin?

The Republican party cannot be called the GOP, because the Democrats are also fairly ‘Great’ and ‘Old.’ And you can also probably guess why some Republicans have convinced the BBC to speak of the ‘so-called Democrats.’ Read more BBC Try to Stop Offending Islamic State… & All the Other Ones Too (2/2)

BBC Try to Stop Offending Islamic State… & All the Other Ones Too! (1/2)

The BBC, inspired and encouraged by their recent decision to rename Daesh ‘The So-called Islamic State‘ (Sinister-Teutonic-Capitals ahoy!) have invented some new equally patronizing euphemisms in order to talk down to non-Muslims too.

For a start, they are referring to the ‘So-Called Worker’s Party of Korea,’ in order to prove they have nothing against actual workers in North Korea who don’t like the Pyongyang dictatorship.

And their preconceptions regarding Taiwanese nationalists hav*e also driven them to speak of the ‘So-called Chinese Communist Party.’ Read more BBC Try to Stop Offending Islamic State… & All the Other Ones Too! (1/2)

Song Parody: Gimme Gimme Gimme Jihad After Midnight

Just past prayers
And I’m watching haram movies in my flat all alone
How I hate to make this Dua on my own
Howling winds
Blowing outside my bowels as I munch some shrooms
And it makes me really want to make a boom

My soul is nearly there
I grunt and offer up a prayer
I twitch my brow like Tony Blairrrrr!

Gimme gimme gimme jihad after midnight
Won’t somebody help me blast the kafrs away
Gimme gimme gimme jihad after midnight
End Satan’s reign of terror, begin the Caliphate’s day

Gimme gimme gimme jihad after midnight
Won’t somebody help me blast the kafrs away
Gimme gimme gimme jihad after midnight
I’m so sick of this oppression from the Jews and the gays Read more Song Parody: Gimme Gimme Gimme Jihad After Midnight

4K Glossy News Podcast 031 (2-22-16)

Despite having my office burglarized and almost all of my production gear stolen, the podcast is back with even more original than ever before.

All of this is available in UHD on YouTube by searching “Glossy Podcast” or as an MP3 on iTunes by searching “Glossy News”.

Here are the topics covered in the the February 22nd, 2016 4K/UHD podcast.

* Review of the James Bond film “Spectre”. Spoiler alert, I wasn’t a big fan, but I give all the reasons.

* What do Chinese landlords do when stuff in their rentals break? I mean, it simply must do that all the time, right?

* The weird dreams I keep having about a fast, hot, topless Viper.

* Pop culture isn’t dead. In fact, it’s coming back stronger than ever.

* Why do top comics and intellectuals get $10,000 to $50,000 to give speeches, while Hillary, who isn’t a terribly good speaker, get a quarter million dollars? The answer may not surprise you.

* If “The Purge” was real, you know, the night when you can commit any crime without repercussion, it wouldn’t be all about murder like the movies show. No, there are a bunch of other crimes on which the problems would center.

Strange Things Happen When You Have a Rock Band With Dave Barry And Stephen King In It. Maybe A Little Too Strange……

It all started very normally. It was a usual, quiet evening with the Rock Bottom Remainders setting up their equipment for another gig.

OK, actually, the Rock Bottom Remainders are not really so very normal. Their roster is made up of all famous literary and artistic people like Dave Barry the humor writer, Stephen King the horror novelist, Amy Tan the fictionalist, Mitch Albom an author, Matt Groening the creator of the Simpsons and Ray Blount Jr. another humor writer. Together they equal fully half of the literary output of the entire United States with King supplying the entire creative output of the state of Maine. And, yes, this is a real group. And they really do go around and perform together. Honest!!! Read more Strange Things Happen When You Have a Rock Band With Dave Barry And Stephen King In It. Maybe A Little Too Strange……

Wallace’s Swiftian Valentine’s Wishes ;)

These appeared earlier today on my Twitter. My most heartfelt and ‘sincere’ Valentine’s Wishes to all!

Wallace 

I admire Frau Merkel, she’s stronger than Wagner, but her political allies tend to hang out with bankers!

L Ron is my spaceman, will you play with my rocket? I’d give you my heart, but my dynamics are rugged…

P is for Putin, a gorgeous young cadre, I’d have married him yesterday, but I’d ‘rather not’ rather.

Khameini is sexy, can I please stick my plums in? I love them jihadis, but he’s still plucking his chicken ;(

Dave is just splendid, my spiffiest of chums, he likes Tory austerity, not bejaped piggybums!

Tony’s dynamic, I love to pieces, you are bigger than Lennon, more charismatic than Jesus… ?!

Bono & Peter Gabriel Slam Wagner: ‘Don’t Separate the Man from the Music’

Many music critics view Wagner’s music as problematic because of the composers’ anti-Semitic views. And yet, some argue that his classic works of opera are somehow separable from his hatred of the Jewish people.

However, not everyone agrees that this is a reasonable view; or in some cases, even a reasonable question to ask!

So, we’ve asked a couple of real music experts (not some pathetic, pedantic, mainstream, dusty old music critics), to give their two (million) cents worth on this one.

Peter Gabriel

Anyone who says you have to “separate the man from the music” is a very, very dangerous person, to my mind.

I mean, don’t listen to these pedantic, upper-crust artistic celebrities and flamboyant, prima donna play-actors who are merely collaborating with the rich and powerful of this world, while pretending to speak up for the marginalised.

Well, guess what? They’re only in it for themselves. And deep down, they know it!

Bono

As I always say, if we could all only just agree to just, you know, to get along and settle our differences in a peaceful and amicable manner and realize that we’re all God’s children, then we’d all be fine.

I mean, all these debates, you know, saying this guy is Jewish, or that guy is an antisemite, it’s all just so damn divisive. Bono says, they’re all as bad as each together.

You know, ‘this guy hates me without cause,’ or ‘this guy is accusing me of being a hater and I can’t put up with that.’ I mean, can’t you see how it’s always both just contributing to the problems?

I mean, no wonder the world is in the state it is. Bono thinks, if we all realised that, at the end of the day, we’re just all part of Humanity and part of the same God’s noble and righteous creation, then nobody would have any reason to oppress anybody any longer…

And no-one would have to feel the need to be all petulant and passive-aggressive and say “that guy is oppressing me and I just wish he would stop.”

I mean, you’ve just got to be better than that, my brother! Just don’t you be annoying Bono with none o’ that there.

No. It’s all quite simple when you think about it. When it comes down to it, antisemitism and anti-antisemitism are both parts of the same disease.

Not any mere material disease, of course.

A disease of the soul, and of the heart.

(Aye now, bet you didn’t see that one coming, me oul’ mucker!)

But yes, you see, the only problem here (as always) is that Wagnerians and anti-Wagnerians just don’t recognise Our Common Humanity, and how much we have in common with each other.

No. If someone is an artist, it has to come as a whole package. Please, please, please, I beg and implore on the utmost bended knees of my soul and the deepest quivering palms of my heart:

Don’t misguidedly and ignorantly logic-chop and be selective, and say ‘I like this bit but not that bit.’

Yes, how about we just all recognise in our minds and more crucially still, in our hearts and innermost tender marrow of our souls, the essential spiritual unity and cosmic oneness of creation and of every creative person?

I can say to you now and forever:

I really do believe that if we just once tried that, every single one of us on Earth…

Well yeah, then everything would be just fine.

Oof! Well, bejaysus, it’s kind of obvious, when you think about it, isn’t it!

But, I mean, it’s the divisive people who just spoil it for everyone else, and you know what?

I’m just sick of ’em.

Aye, ya know, these cynical, shiftless, Blarney-mongering bastards aren’t normal, moral folks of high ideals like you and me; and I tell you what, they just don’t know what’s coming to ’em!

I mean, anyone who divides Humanity into speculatively constructed warring camps and makes any kind of distinction whatsoever should not be permitted to sup at my table or that of any other decent person!

Aye, they can just take all their fake metaphysical pieties and shove ’em up their bloody arses!!!

Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was not particularly impressed, telling me over a nice contraband technically-non-haram (for Caliphs) Guinness in the moderate political Islamist quarter of his new hot-ass spiritual empire:

Ach sure now, to be fair te ye, I do also believe in this here essential unity and oneness of God’s Creation.

Aye! But I don’t believe in precisely all that there metaphysical bollocks, the same type o’ essential unity and oneness shite that this shitty, pretentious, intrusively pious pair o’ wankers believe in.

So, they are OBVIOUSLY more wrong than I am! Stupid, superstitious, thieving gobshites!!!

Zak Bagans Interrupts Wedding to Proclaim Love to Air Mask

Las Vegas, Nevada – Only hours before the newest episode of the long-running spook catching show, Ghost Adventures, was set to air on Saturday, the leading paranormal expert, Zak Bagans, made an announcement that he described afterwards as a “ghost he needed to get out of his closet.” The message that Bagans conveyed, his love for an air mask that was given to him as a child, came at the worst possible time for Dave Cornbeif and Natalie Muphin, who were only minutes away from being legally married at the time.

Why did the North Koreans run over the border to eat South Korean’s lawns?
They heard the grass was greener on the other side.

Three – One to hold another on his shoulders to change it and one to explain what a light bulb is in the first place.

Muslims Couldn’t Care Less About Trump’s Edgy Religious Conversions

Donald Trump has recently decided to further alienate Muslims by staging a controversial religious conversion.

Or rather, a whole sevenfold string of counterfeit conversions. However, his plan appears to have backfired.

Trump decided to convert to the Baha’i, Yazidi, Mandaean, Druze, Ahmadiyya Muslim, Zoroastrian and Babi faiths.
