Germany Beats Canada!

Germany beat Canada in huge ice hockey upset at Winter Olympics

Canada’s topsy-turvy Olympics continued on Friday as Germany stunned the nine-time Olympic champions 4-3 in the men’s ice hockey semi-finals. The defeat came a day after Canada’s women’s hockey team were denied a fifth-straight gold in a shootout against the US and amid the disappointment of missing out on curling medals.

Without their NHL stars, Canada were outplayed by coach Marco Sturm’s team, who now face an even stiffer test against the OAR in Sunday’s final. After winning back-to-back gold medals in Vancouver in 2010 and Sochi in 2014, and three of the past four dating to 2002, Canada will play the Czech Republic for bronze on Saturday.

Canada have only settled for a bronze medal twice in 21 previous Olympic men’s hockey tournaments and took home gold or silver in each of the six finals with women’s hockey.

i haven’t watched a single minute of the winter olympics, and am generally just completely disinterested… see little tidbits and headlines here and there, but overall i just don’t really care much about it… that being said, just saw this and was like “whoa… seriously?!”

i’ll be damned.

Kill Chic

been a little MIA of late… no particular reason, just been kinda busy and haven’t really been into blogging all that much of late… dunno why, but i’m usually just kinda “bleh” about it… might retire the blog or keep it around, not sure yet — either way, here’s the latest from victor hanson.

We live in a society in which gratuitous violence is the trademark of video games, movies, and popular music. Kill this, shoot that in repugnant detail becomes a race to the visual and spoken bottom.

We have gone from Sam Peckinpah’s realistic portrayal of violent death to a gory ritual of metal ripping flesh, as if it is some sort of macabre ballet. Rap music has institutionalized violence against women and the police — to the tune of billions in profits, largely as a way for suburban kids to find vicarious street authenticity. And this idea of metaphorically cutting, bleeding, or shooting those whom you don’t like without real consequences has seeped into the national political dialogue.

For example, why does popular culture wink and nod at the widespread metaphorical killing of Republican presidents? Liberals used to believe that words mattered and images had consequences; the casual glorification of carnage trivialized violence and only made it more acceptable — and likely.

In 2017, the obsessive hatred of Trump led, for instance, to many obscenities: Madonna told us she dreamed of blowing up the White House, comedian Kathy Griffin posed with a bloody facsimile of Trump’s head, Snoop Dog shot a Trump likeliness in a video, a Shakespearean company ritually stabbed Trump-Caesar every night on stage, Johnny Depp joked, “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president? … It has been a while, and maybe it is time.”

But such kill chic is hardly new — and hardly a result of Trump’s sometimes reckless tweets or undisciplined outbursts. Continue…

he’s got a point, as usual… worth reading the whole thing if you got the time and find it interesting… good stuff over some coffee and a bagel & cream cheese here ;)

PS. “kill chic” sounds like a cool movie title or something.

Gonna Go See It?

was initially gonna go see it last night, but my friend got sick and at this point, i don’t wanna be within 10 yards of anybody with the flu… screw that, totally not worth it… so going with a group of peeps this saturday.

looking forward to it, should be fun :)

i’ve heard nothing but great things about this one, and other than seeing the movie trailer once or twice, i’ve tried to avoid being overly saturated in “black panther” news / rumors / tidbitties, etc.

so you going to see it?

The North Korea Standoff

Who’s Really Winning the North Korea Standoff?

Kim Jong-un may seem to have the upper hand, but the U.S. is quietly proving otherwise.

There have been wild reports that the United States is considering a “bloody nose” preemptive attack of some sort on North Korea’s nuclear arsenal. Such rumors are unlikely to prove true. Preemptive attacks usually are based on the idea that things will so worsen that hitting first is the only chance to decapitate a regime before it can do greater damage.

But in the struggle between Pyongyang and Washington, who really has gotten the upper hand?

With its false happy face in the current Winter Olympics, North Korea thinks it is winning the war of nerves. Yet its new nuclear-missile strategy is pretty transparent. It wants to separate South Korea’s strategic interests from those of the United States, with boasts — backed by occasional nuclear-missile tests — that it can take out West Coast cities.

Pyongyang could then warn its new frenemy, Seoul, that the United States would never risk its own homeland to keep protecting South Korea. So it would supposedly be wiser for Koreans themselves, in the spirit of Olympic brotherhood, to settle their own differences. A failed but nuclear North Korea ultimately would dictate the terms of the relationship to a successful but non-nuclear South Korea. Continue…

yeah, i think most sane people would agree that any kind of preemptive attack on north korea would be downright nuts… i’m sure they’ve gone through every possible scenario and have plans drawn up for each of them… on the flipside, it’s just a shitty situation and nobody likes the idea of NK having nuclear weapons — nothing good will come of that.

PS. personally, was surprised to see NK at the winter olympics.

Good Morning

oh yeahhhhh…. titty tuesday is here already, and i’ll driving up to the new office today — last week or two has been a little extra hectic with the office move on top of everything else, so should be fun.

it’s more of a temporary space we’ve been working on this past month while our new office is being built out… so with that in mind, i don’t want to settle in and get too comfy.

anywho, got a solid 5 hours or so of meetings today (ugh) and then maybe going out for a beer with some of the guys… so probably won’t be around much.

PS. have a good one ;)

Awesome Altered Carbon

i binge watched ‘altered carbon’ over the weekend since the weather here was crappy and it literally rained for the past 3 days straight… so it was a good weekend to just curl up on the couch and chill out.

anywho, don’t want to drop any spoilers or anything… but damn, that show was freak’n awesome! i was pretty much hooked after the first episode… not a lot of sci-fi shows like this around, so i appreciated that right off the bat… the special effects and overall quality was kind of a surprise too, kept finding myself watching and thinking “damn, that’s pretty cool” at some of the scenes.

just a heads up if you haven’t watched it but are planning on it — quite a bit of nudity and violence, so i wouldn’t watch it with little ones around… actually called my sister to give her a heads up after a few episodes since i remember her mentioning the show a few weeks back… good thing i did, too. lol

also watched that “cloverfield paradox” movie i kept seeing pop up in my twitter feed… pretty good movie, even if it did leave some unanswered questions which can be kind of annoying…. ugh, bastards.

Trump’s Military Parade

Ex-SEAL who says he fired final bin Laden shot calls Trump’s military parade ‘third-world b——-‘

(CNN)The former Navy SEAL who claims he fired the shot that killed Osama bin Laden is blasting President Donald Trump’s desire for a military parade down Pennsylvania Avenue.

“A military parade is third world b——-. We prepare. We deter. We fight. Stop this conversation,” Robert O’Neill tweeted Thursday.

i pretty much avoid the news at this point, but even i heard something about this and had to google it… ummmm… a military parade down pennsylvania avenue?

…seriously?

FISA-Gate > Watergate

FISA-Gate Is Scarier Than Watergate

The Watergate scandal of 1972–74 was uncovered largely because of outraged Democratic politicians and a bulldog media. They both claimed that they had saved American democracy from the Nixon administration’s attempt to warp the CIA and FBI to cover up an otherwise minor, though illegal, political break-in.

In the Iran-Contra affair of 1985–87, the media and liberal activists uncovered wrongdoing by some rogue members of the Reagan government. They warned of government overreach and of using the “Deep State” to subvert the law for political purposes.

We are now in the middle of a third great modern scandal. Members of the Obama administration’s Department of Justice sought court approval for the surveillance of Carter Page, allegedly for colluding with Russian interests, and extended the surveillance three times.

But none of these government officials told the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that the warrant requests were based on an unverified dossier that had originated as a hit piece funded in part by the Hillary Clinton campaign to smear Donald Trump during the current 2016 campaign. Continue…

i usually sit down and checkout the latest from victor over some coffee, but it’s been a hectic morning… hell, an overall hectic week to be honest… but alas, it’s fucking friday! hell yeah… just kinda wish that ‘Black Panther’ was out this weekend, but whatevs… just gives me something to look forward to for next weekend i guess.

anywho, victor is pretty much spot on here — as usual ;)

PS. hmmm, what should i grab for lunch today?

SpaceX Heavy Launch Today

Watch SpaceX Launch Its Falcon Heavy Rocket Live Right Here

“The weather is looking good,” said SpaceX CEO Elon Musk at a news conference yesterday. “The rocket is looking good.” Should that change and the launch get canceled, SpaceX will try again tomorrow with the same launch window. The Falcon Heavy is currently sitting on Pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Armed with 27 Merlin engines, the Falcon Heavy will feature twice the launching power of any existing rocket. Its first stage consists of two Falcon 9 first-stage rockets, which are attached to a central “core” rocket, itself a modified Falcon 9 booster.

A dummy payload consisting of Musk’s personal Tesla Roadster sits up top in the cargo hold. With the radio repeatedly playing David Bowie’s “Life on Mars,” the shiny red Roadster will be placed in an elliptical orbit around the Sun at a distance that will take it as far out as Mars. The car is expected to stay in orbit for hundreds of millions of years, possibly even longer. To make it happen, the Falcon Heavy’s upper stage will coast for about six hours before firing its second stage for a third time. It’s a neat publicity stunt, but it’ll also demonstrate the rocket’s ability to send payloads directly to geostationary orbit.

hopefully it all goes well with the launch today, might tune in online and check it out if i can (and remember)… kinda funny about elon musk putting his tesla roadster up there to float around the solar system for the next couple hundred million years — i can just see some aliens swinging through and stumble’n across it and being like “ummm, what the fuck is this?”

Philly Gets Rowdy After Super Bowl Win

Super Bowl celebration in Philadelphia turns rowdy after Eagles win championship

What started on the streets of Philadelphia as a joyous celebration of the Eagles’ first Super Bowl championship Sunday night, quickly turned rowdy and destructive as night gave way to morning.

Boisterous fans smashed a Macy’s store window, looters broke into a convenience store and other revelers flipped over a car, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

y’know, i was wondering about that last night after the game… joked about philly being ripped a new one by the fans, and figured they were probably going ape-shit crazy in the city… so yeah, no big surprise here! lol

congrats to the Eagles though… not sure which one is more insufferable — Eagles or Patriot fans.

hmmm… tough one.
