There’s an annual skateboard race in New York City known as the ‘Broadway Bomb’. This year the city banned it, and the New York State Supreme Court ruled that it was within its rights to do so.
But it happened anyway.
And someone compiled this film. And put it to music. Don’t start it if you have a mouthful of coffee.

From Twitter and Facebook to Amazon and Google, the biggest names of the Internet are blasting a federal judge’s decision in a defamation lawsuit by a former Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader convicted of having sex with her former high school student.
The Internet giants recently filed briefs in the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati.
The briefs are part of a lawsuit involving ex-Bengals cheerleader Sarah Jones against an Arizona-based website thedirty.com.
A jury found in July that posts on the site about Jones were substantially false and awarded her $338,000.
The companies say that if upheld, the northern Kentucky judge’s ruling in favor of the former cheerleader has the potential to “significantly chill online speech” and undermine a 1996 federal law that provides broad immunity to websites.
72 years ago when the American people heard about the attack on Pearl Harbor they reacted with shock and anger. The road ahead was filled with uncertainties except for two. A lot of Americans had died that day and a lot more were going to die in the days ahead. Anything beyond that was not a certainty.
As the effects of the attack on Pearl Harbor will always be with us it is only proper that we remember it along with the many Heroes who were serving in our armed forces on that day. A John Wayne movie seems as good a thing as any to make an official remembrance of Pearl Harbor Day. In Harm’s Way is one of my all time favorites but as it is not available I chose another classic. I haven’t seen this one in a while but tonight makes a good night to see it again.
They were Americans. They were serving in the Philippines on December 7th 1941. They were expendable.
LANGLEY, VA—A report released Tuesday by the CIA’s Office of the Inspector General revealed that the CIA has mistakenly obscured hundreds of thousands of pages of critical intelligence information with black highlighters.
According to the report, sections of the documents— “almost invariably the most crucial passages”—are marred by an indelible black ink that renders the lines impossible to read, due to a top-secret highlighting policy that began at the agency’s inception in 1947.
CIA Director Porter Goss has ordered further internal investigation.
“Why did it go on for this long, and this far?” said Goss in a press conference called shortly after the report’s release. “I’m as frustrated as anyone. You can’t read a single thing that’s been highlighted. Had I been there to advise [former CIA director] Allen Dulles, I would have suggested the traditional yellow color—or pink.”
Goss added: “There was probably some really, really important information in these documents.”

The Christmas Season is now upon us in full. We all have our traditions that go with the Season. Christmas movies are one of them. I MUST see the same Christmas movies I’ve been watching since I was a child but there are others that have come along over the years that are added to the list. These are movies that I have to watch no matter how many times I’ve seen them. I can watch A Christmas Story several times in the same day.
This year I’m going out of my way to watch Christmas movies that I’ve never seen before. Tonight I’ve found one that is a first for this prestigious forum. Tonight we make our first excursion into Mexican Cinema. Christmas has come early to the Revo. Here’s a movie that you’ve never seen before. If you would have, we would have all heard about it by now.
Many Christmas movies feature Santa Claus overcoming some kind of adversity through his genius. The story of Rudolph the red nosed Reindeer is a fine example. In the story of Santa Claus is coming to Town we see Santa having to make a stand against The Man. In Frosty the Snowman he’s forced to confront an insane magician.
Tonight Santa takes on the forces of the Prince of Darkness himself.
Well, at least those of us who were kids back when these toys hit the shelves might have enjoyed one or more of these.
There are some really cool toys here. They inspire the imagination of a child. The toys that are considered most desirable today leave nothing to the imagination. Instead of making any further commentary, let’s just enjoy looking at these toys we once enjoyed. Too few of them still exist to actually be played with anymore. They are collectors items that are considered to be an investment that waits for the opportunity to yield a big return when the right kid with a fat wallet decides that he wants to play with it for keeps.
Stay tuned later for a real Friday Night at the Movies Christmas Holiday Presentacion Especial.
Caught the middle wire, too.
“Let’s all get together and replumb his house so beer comes out of every water tap. Then record it.”
South African President Jacob Zuma, in his Mao jacket, announces the death of South Africa’s communist hero. According to Wikipedia he was:
Although initially committed to non-violent protest, in association with the South African Communist Party he co-founded the militant Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK) in 1961, leading a bombing campaign against government targets. In 1962 he was arrested, convicted of sabotage and conspiracy to overthrow the government, and sentenced to life imprisonment in the Rivonia Trial.
Mandela served 27 years in prison, first on Robben Island, and later in Pollsmoor Prison and Victor Verster Prison.”
He is fondly remembered by communists throughout the world.
His wife, Winnie, was convicted of kidnapping and murder. Again from Wikipedia:
In 1991, she was convicted of kidnapping and being an accessory to assault in connection with the death of Seipei. Her six-year jail sentence was reduced to a fine on appeal. The final report of the South African Truth and Reconciliation commission, issued in 1998, found “Ms Winnie Madikizela Mandela politically and morally accountable for the gross violations of human rights committed by the MUFC.”It concluded that she had personally been directly responsible for the murder, torture, abduction and assault of numerous men, women and children, as well as indirectly responsible for even larger number of such crimes.
On 24 April 2003, Winnie Mandela was found guilty on 43 counts of fraud and 25 of theft, and her broker, Addy Moolman, was convicted on 58 counts of fraud and 25 of theft.”
Nelson Mandela, like our current U.S. President, had a winning smile which charmed despite his violent revolutionary past.
You may not believe it but I am no fan of Communists.
FARGO – Oil production isn’t the only thing growing in North Dakota.
An online condom seller has named North Dakota king of the oversized condom, with a study showing the Roughrider state is No. 1 in the nation in buying larger-sized condoms.
Minnesotans may have a bone to pick with the latest Condomania.com study, which the website released Tuesday. Minnesota ranked a mere 39th.
States that bought a higher-than-average amount of larger-sized condoms
1. North Dakota
2. Rhode Island
3. South Dakota
4. District of Columbia (makes sense)
9. New York
10. South Carolina
Hmmmm…Where’s Iowa? Washington? Texas? Florida? Tennessee? Illinois? Michigan?
The president’s uncle has been living illegally in the US for five decades. The White House assured us that the president never even met the man.
It turns out that, it fact, Obama lived with his uncle while in law school.
President Obama acknowledged on Thursday that he lived with his Kenyan uncle for a brief period in the 1980s while preparing to attend Harvard Law School, contradicting a statement more than a year ago that the White House had no record of the two ever meeting.
Their relationship came into question on Tuesday at the deportation hearing of his uncle, Onyango Obama, in Boston immigration court. His uncle had lived in the United States illegally since the 1970s and revealed in testimony for the first time that his famous nephew had stayed at his Cambridge apartment for about three weeks. At the time, Onyango Obama was here illegally and fighting deportation.
On Thursday, a White House official said the press office had not fully researched the relationship between the president and his uncle before telling the Globe that they had no record of the two meeting. This time, the press office asked the president directly, which they had not done in 2011.
They’re going to party like it’s A.D. 632! Sharia Law is here to stay! So get your throwing arms in shape, be sure to warm up properly, work on your accuracy, and get ready to peg anyone in violation of Sharia Law upside the head with your favorite rock. The great tradition of stoning is here!
Libya’s National Assembly has voted to make Sharia, Islamic law, the foundation of all legislation and state institutions in the country.
The immediate scope of the General National Congress”s (GNC) decision on Wednesday was not clear, but a special committee will review all existing laws to guarantee they comply with Islamic law.
“Islamic law is the source of legislation in Libya,” the GNC said in a statement after the vote. “All state institutions need to comply with this.”
The decision may impact banking, criminal and financial laws. One specific reform might include a shift to Islamic finance regulations that avoid interest and pure speculation.
President Obama wants young bartenders to give their customers a tip — sign up for health insurance under Obamacare.
Speaking at a White House Youth Summit on Wednesday, the president continued to enlist Americans from all walks to life to join in the effort to sell health care reform.
“No matter how much I care, the truth is, for your friends and your family, the most important source of information is not going to be me. It’s going to be you,” the president said. “If you’re a student body president, set up a conference on campus. If you work at a nonprofit, open your doors and use your email list to help people learn the facts. If you’ve got a radio show, spread the word on air. If you’re a bartender, have a happy hour — and also probably get health insurance because a lot of bartenders don’t have it.”
Many of you know I’m a bartender. I’ve done it for years. It’s good money and non-stressful. About 70% of my compensation comes in the forms of monetary gifts from customers. These gifts, otherwise know as tips, reflects upon my performance and customer service. Shitty service equals shitty tips. Good service; Good tips. I generally receive pretty good tips.
I can’t think of a better way than turning a pleasant Happy Hour into a dreadful Zero Hour for my customers, (named for both Obama and the amount of tips I would receive), than encouraging customers to sign up for Obamacare. My tips would drop faster than the panties of a bar slut after several shots of tequila.
Apparently, Venezuela has one huge extension cord from it’s power plant and those blasted right-winger fascists cut it, leaving millions in the dark. By the way, since when did facsism become right-wing?
CARACAS (Reuters) – Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said on Tuesday he had proof that a massive power outage was caused by saboteurs aiming to throw the country into chaos before municipal elections this weekend.
The blackout on Monday night was the second major power outage the year, plunging much of the country into darkness and prompting accusations of government incompetence from the opposition.
Speaking on state TV alongside Electricity Minister Jesse Chacon and other officials, Maduro briefly showed a photo of what appeared to be a cut conductor cable lying on the floor.
“What motive could there be for leaving a whole country without electricity?” he said, adding that Chacon had brought him the evidence and more details would be unveiled on Wednesday.
“We always face these attacks by the right-wing fascists … they wanted to make me, as president of the republic, decree a state of emergency and suspend the elections.”
Critics of the government say lack of maintenance was likely to blame for the outage.
I would guess it was that damned Snowball who did it.
One of the recurring things I find in Scripture is how God does great things to communicate specific things to his people. Often times, probably most often he does it in the midst of a very bad situation. Over and over again he lets his people know that he alone is God and is more than able to provide for our every need. Most times we have not because we ask not. I’ve learned to humble myself and ask. I can’t begin to face this world alone and without his blessings.
I read this story earlier today and I’ve been so jacked up about it since then. Then what makes me even happier is knowing that God is sending us all a message. It’s a recurring theme and from time to time we need reminding. Take the time to soak it in and know that the Almighty Creator of the Cosmos LOVES you.
Mike Momany worked as a contract programmer for years before falling on hard times. Now homeless in Seattle, he has been experimenting with innovative ways to make money ever since.
His main focus at the moment: a “private course in Applied Homelessness,” whereby he offers folks a chance to experience the homeless lifestyle during a three-day tour. Tuition is $2000 of which 25% will be donated back to shelters and pay for expenses, like the purchase of clothes for potential clients.
Although Momany looks at the venture as a business, he’s also hoping to raise awareness of the growing homeless population in Seattle which has increased by 15% since 2007. By offering a real life homeless experience, he’s hoping to inspire new approaches to solving the problem.
According to Momany, students will be dressed in appropriate homeless garb, given new names as well as “a simple life script.” The dense curriculum includes visits to popular homeless hangouts like the Seattle Public Library and students will be given opportunities to converse with other homeless people, pan handle and nap on benches. On one particular night, they will roam the streets at 3 a.m. Each night will be capped off with a stay in a $15-per-night hostel.
Momany’s venture is already stirring up controversy.
MJ Kiser, program director at Compass Housing Alliance in Seattle, said Momany’s tour would use up much-needed resources like housing and food, and that his $2,000 fee “could help a homeless family for two months or provide meals for all  of the folks in Compass shelters one night.”
Michael Stoops, director of community organizing at the National Coalition for the Homeless, said he thinks Momany’s intentions are in the right place, but he doesn’t think it’s right to charge $2,000 or for Momany to pay himself such a big fee. If the experience is really about giving people an inside look at homelessness, then it shouldn’t be about turning a profit, Stoops said.
Stoops says that his nonprofit coalition offers a similar program, called the Homeless Challenge where people can spend 48 hours living on the streets of Washington, D.C., with a guide who is either currently or formerly homeless. The coalition only asks for a $50 nightly donation to local shelters. “It’s not a moneymaker,” Stoops said. “We do it to give [people] the experience and to let them interact with other homeless folks.”
Nobody has signed up for Momany’s course as of yet.
While I certainly wouldn’t pay for the course (I have been housing deficient), I like the way he thinks.
The website is now slightly less broken.
If Ms Sibelius rubbed a magic lamp and conjured up an IT genie, she might wish that the Obamafail site work perfectly. Once that wish was granted, however, many more millions of people would discover that premiums are still pricey, that sky-high deductibles and co-payments price them out of getting health care even with an insurance card in hand, that they won’t be able to keep their doctor, that the nearest hospital isn’t in their network and that the doctors that are in their networks are swamped and wait times are protracted.
In other words, a fixed website just reveals to the world the more intractable problems of Obamacare.
Therefore, this is a blag.
My daughter, who you know as Pumpkin and who comments here as iahawkeye19, will be graduating from the University of Iowa with her bachelor’s degree in economics a week from Saturday. That alone would justify my blag, but she did it in just three and a half years. In an age when most students can’t get it done in four, that is worthy of praise.
But wait, there is more. She held a job during her entire time at the University and, for the last year and a half, it was a full time, 40 hour per week job with benefits.
That’s not all. She has a $50k per year job lined up. Starting at the first of the year she will be gainfully employed at a corporation you have all heard of. I had nothing to do with her landing the job either, she did it all on her own. And it wasn’t even her only offer!
In a world of Julias, I’d say all this is in the finest tradition of Revoistas everywhere. If you are so inclined, please feel free to give Pumpkin a big round of applause in the comments.

The Honda went through the ice. The way they got it out is ingenious as heck. I would never have thought of it.
Because the life of Rosa Parks is appropriately celebrated by promoting a presidential personality cult.
I am pretty sure he is admiring his own reflection in the glass.
The Obama administration claimed victory Sunday for making HealthCare.gov workable for the vast majority of users, a standard that will be tested as millions of people flood the site in the next three weeks.
Sunday marked the passage of the administration’s self-imposed deadline for fixing the broken ObamaCare enrollment website, which serves consumers in 36 states.
The agency that oversees HealthCare.gov said “we believe we have met the goal” of making the system navigable for most people, but cautioned that more problems may lie ahead.
“Dramatic progress has been made,” the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) stated in a report released Sunday morning. “[But] there is more work to be done to continue to improve and enhance the website.”
Of course other problems may yet arise, huh?
On the heels of his recent appearance pouring cold water on Jim Cramer’s housing recovery exuberance, recent Nobel Prize winner Bob Shiller unloads another round of uncomfortable truthiness (presumably on the basis of his future-proofing tenure guaranteed by the Nobel). “Bubbles look like this,” Shiller tells Der Spiegel, adding that he is, “most worried about the boom in US stock prices.” As Reuters reports, Shiller is concerned since “the world is still very vulnerable to a bubble,” and with stock exchanges around the world at record highs despite an economy that is “still weak,” the Nobel winner proclaimed, “this could end badly.”
After it busts, the moans of “no one could have seen this coming” will be heard in every quarter.
