    Beautiful: How cold is that water now? It’s still warm enough to swim here, but drying off is an invitation to hypothermia.

    How cold? I only touched it to rinse out the beer bottles. But it’s safe to say it’s a little late for a swim.

    What a great picture. You could call it “Bood bye cruel world”!

    I liked Bood bye. In fact I’m going to start using it.

    Frank Zappa leaps from the grave. Again.

    The Waffen Man is seated at the map table of the Schloss Kulturkamf von Dressiebessie.Reaching for his meticulously polished MP30 and brushing his vaccuformed Iron Cross aside, he gathers an intimate quantity of Aryan boys to his bosom, and has them palpate for the Luger he has secreted therein.
    He turns to us and speaks.
    “Some degenerates think my shiny kneeboots is being silly. I am angry mit dem und so weiter!”
    Arrogantly twisting the snaking cord of his REI retractable monocle around his erect finger, he poots forth a small brownish rosette of pemmican from a toothpaste tube and recreates a small square mustache in an area somewhat to the south of his nose.
    “Some peoples think my dressieboots make me ein Silliewillie. But der vill of der Vaterland muss in der Gotterdammurung be gebleibenlebenhabengezug!”

    Girl, you thought he was a man,
    but he was a Waffen.
    Hanging round with Reinhard Heydrich
    way too offen.

    Girl, you thought he was a man,
    but he was Schutz-Staffen
    prancing round headquarters with the boys
    when he said he was golfin’.

    “Behind the Burly-Q” was an interesting documentary. It interviews many former strippers about their life, why they became strippers and so on. Occasionally there were clips of their acts. It was pretty interesting. The film was shown at the Detroit Film Theater at the DIA art museum. It’s another restored classic theater. Really pretty to look at.

    I thought you had the boat out already. Glad you could enjoy the day.

    Nothing quite so interesting here, I did buy a futon this weekend which turned out to have been manufactured in the Fort… by the Wolf Corporation at 3434 Adams Center Road. Small world.

    I watched three baseball games and took three long walks with the dog and am now chillin’ with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers with Thelonious Monk playing from my RealPlayer program library. Very cool.
    “Omar” (Michael K. Williams)from “The Wire” plays “Chalky” on “Boardwalk Empire”.
    I really thought he was going to work over that Klansman Cyclops man a lot worse than he did. “Omar” has mellowed..SPOILER ALERT…. c’mon, just one finger? Chalky, you had a whole lot of mean tools there! I was expecting to be led to believe we were going to be coaxed to use our imagination like we were when we saw “Pulp Fiction” and Ving Rhames called in his “pipe-hittin’ (comrades)” , you remember?… the ones with blow torches.

    I see by your boat’s flag that you have accepted the accession of Admiralty law over the US Constitution, and put yourselves under the control of the ZOG (Zionist Occupation Government). Gold fringes on flags, such as are seen in public school auditoriums and most civic buildings today, indicate the same acquiescence to the subversion of our freedoms as outlined by the Founders.

    (Yeah, ended up in a conversation with a guy who talks like that this weekend. Interesting that you much less frequently run into women who fall down that rabbit hole. And no, it wasn’t a Tea Party context at all — in fact, he seems to think Tea Partiers are fools because they still think the institutions of civil government are worth redemption.)

    Gold fringes? I thought it was just Basil Marceaux who talked that way… tell us more about why they think it’s a one-world plot or whatever.
