Chuck Open Thread by John Cole| October 18, 20108:00 pm| 49 CommentsThis post is in: TelevisionFacebookTweetEmailEnjoy. I will.
But will Sullivan expect Chuck to endorse hard working rich people?
Need a little something to snack on while watching?
LOL, I am having grilled cheese right now… sans tomatoes
@jeffreyw: I don’t think I will ever look at a grilled cheese again without thinking “grilled cheesus”. (from the glee episode) I know the show is lame sometimes, well, really lame and more than sometimes, but it has its redeeming qualities.

EnEffEl EnEffEl EnEffEl!
Need 30pts combined from Mercedes and Kenneth Britt. Come oooooooooooooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn passing game!
Dammit, I just posted this in the last thread. Via Sadly, No! apparently, the NYT has stolen Ms. McArdle’s calculator:
An article last Sunday about Pamela Geller, a blogger who attacks Islam, misidentified the location of a beach from which she video-blogged about her visit to Israel during the Israel-Hezbollah war in 2006. She was in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., at the time of her reports, not at a beach in Israel. The article also overstated the number of monthly unique visitors to Ms. Geller’s Web site, Atlas Shrugs. The site attracts 194,000 such visitors, according to Quantcast statistics — not one million. (The Nielsen Company estimated 184,000 in September.) And because of an editing error, the article misspelled the surname of the lead singer of the Who whom Ms. Geller was likened to for being the “front man” in the attack on Islam. He is Roger Daltrey, not Daltry.
Oingo Boingo for the win.
Pinky and the Brain were at their best when they did classic WB length cartoons. When they stretched one story to the full 22 minutes they just weren’t as good.
Snowball was alright the first time he was in the plot, but then they lost it with all the repeat appearances. As much of a fan as I am of Chinatown, I thought their parody lame.
I am finding that several glasses of wine and multiple games of free cell (I am currently up 20 to 2) are helping me with deal my kittie spending the night at the vets. Have on HGTV — Property Virgins — my usual evening ritual is not doing it for me…Wine and free cell seem to help.
Also, the fact that I thought our other kittie would be spending the evening missing her. But, his reality makes me laugh. Several kittie treats and a bit of loving, and he is perfectly happy. Go figure.
Back to free cell. I feel a free cell marathon on my horizon.
All you “Chuck” fans should know that Zachary Levi does his own singing in the next animated Disney film, “Tangled.” And I have to admit, he sounds pretty good! Maybe they’ll do a musical episode of “Chuck” after the movie comes out.
Has anyone else seen this? Large anonymous donations to non-profits that fund political ads may be subject to the 35% gift tax.
@Rosalita: Someone mentioned loving dried tomatoes on grilled cheese. Thought I’d give it a whirl. Very good. Not sure it will ever replace the flavor you get from dipping cheese sammich crusts into tomato soup but it has echoes of that.
This is cool. The St. Cloud MN paper endorses Tarryl Clark.
Bachmann may have finally overplayed her hand in her own conservative district? I hope so.
pocket hocules(he wrote a column telling the refs how to do their jobs) maurice jones drew vs chris johnson, huge fantasy implications on the line…
great idea for the nfl, put the game with the most built-in fantasy audience on monday night, and the best game, or game with a team in cultural jersey(east coast dc up to providence, incl philly) on sunday night.
meanwhile pens up 5-1 geno and sid and letestu baby among the scorers wooo! pens!
@Omnes Omnibus: Yep, different article, but the same information. It’s lovely to think they may all have to pay the 35% tax. I guess if you have a million to
donatebuy an election, 350,000 isn’t that much money?
@John Cole: Boingo always gets the win.
@WaterGirl: It starts to add up. Plus, if you weren’t told about it when you donated, don’t you think you would be a little pissed at the organization for not mentioning the vig?
And, fwiw, I’m watching a bunch of nerds play D&D and it is awesome.
@Annie: It’s good to distract yourself from your worries. Good luck to your kitty.
BTW, why didn’t I see this mefi post until today?
Judge Phillips lets Holder know that she is going deny his request for a stay… but drags her feet about issuing a ruling that the DoJ can appeal to the Ninth Cicuit. Thus maximizing the number of dismissal-free days during which the military fails to be irreparably harmed.
One can only hope.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
For your viewing pleasure, I bring you, Jimmy Miller, the “Rent Is Too Damn High Candidate” from the NY State Gov. Debate
Also, please check out his party’s website. Trust me. It is worth your time. If only for the rap song!
H/T Gawker TV
I watched this debate live tonight. It was better than any episode of SNL I’ve ever seen.
@gbear: AW-SUM! Thanks for sharing that. Gave me a big ol’ grin. (First typed gin. Wish it were).
@Annie: Keep us updated on your kitteh, please. Good luck beating free cell.
Since this is an open thread, people are encouraged to read about my experience with sexism in pizzalandia over the weekend. Comments appreciated.
Ya’ll checked out the candidate from the Rent is Too Damn High Party?
I’m sure they regret the error.
@MJ: Sorry man, I got so fired up I posted it too. Jimmy was a door gunner with the Cav but he’s got the wrong unit designation, it was the 227th Aviation Regiment.
Doing various household chores. Decided to turn on over air radio and see what the kids are doing.
Does every act use auto tune these days?
@arguingwithsignposts: Sigh. Still pretty common (as I noted over at your place). This kind of gender classification starts YOUNG.
And, friend hooked me up to Sugarland VEVO livestreaming a concert. Check it out.
now that is a candidate i want to see debate paladino.
@asiangrrlMN: Jennifer used to have a group called Soul Miners Daughter out of Atlanta and played over here all the time. Good stuff.
@arguingwithsignposts: They got it all wrong. I’ve had more than one London cabbie tell me that the very idea of girls playing footie is just absurd. It’s a man’s game. The girls should stick to netball.
So there’s at least one spot where the US is ahead of the yurpians.
Holy moly! Homer Simpson’s a Catholic, Vatican paper says
@fucen tarmal: Read the debate blog on the NYT site. The madam that worked Spitzer’s hooker was one of the seven and her quote comparing her operation with the MTA is awesome.
@stuckinred: Cool! She’s VERY easy on the eyes as well as being a great singer.
No worries Stuckinred. No one owes Jimmy McMillan. He belongs to the m.f.ing world.
Lee hasn’t given up a hit through four.
Interesting that girls can be soccer players. That would never happen in other countries, where soccer/football is the national obsession and played almost exclusively by men. One country’s sexism is another country’s forward thinking. But yeah, in general it’s crappy. A VIP? What the heck is that? Someone who is just famous because they’re famous? Like Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian? Is that what girls aspire to these days? Sad. And why can’t boys be VIPs? In real life they sure are.
@MJ: I’d never heard about him but I love his style. Reminds me of Curtis Mayfield’s Back to the World
Breaking: Carl Palladino no longer the craziest guy running for governor of New York.
Jesus Christ, America is officially batshit insane.
Jim, Foolish Literalist
Fascinating to watch Megan McCain talk about how Christine O’Donnell’s candidacy degrades our political process, seemingly genuinely unaware that CO’D is a shadow of the person her father picked to be his vice-president. Ah, The Rachel Maddow goes there, and Megs blames the media for the Palin ascendancy.
I wondered about the VIP card too. No positive associations with that term in my experience.
@Southern Beale: Back off Dawg, the brother is on the case.
@stuckinred: Is this a Georgia thang?
ETA, OCD edition: I have the dress, pearls, gloves, cigarette holder, cigarette case, martini glass, and makeup for my Halloween costume. This is a big fucking deal!
@asiangrrlMN: You mean Dawg? It’s pretty a pretty common colloquialism in certain subcultures, know what I’m sayin? Same thing with Brother McMillan. If you click through his site to his book you’ll see this statement
Crazy, maybe yes maybe no but understand him perfectly.
I think Rev. Lovejoy would be very surprised to hear that the Simpsons are Catholic. They’re definitely Christian, but they appear to be members of some mainstream Protestant denomination, not Catholic. That said, I think that The Simpsons has a more realistic picture of the role of religion in a typical American’s life than any other show I can think of.
Kickass 15 year old UK skeptic blogger with Crohn’s disease (Rhys Morgan) busts quacks US marketing miracle cure in Europe for Crohn’s disease but which was warned against by our FDA as being actually an industrial bleach. British agency with the supervisory responsibility (FSA) requests it removed from European market.
He means that last bit. The quack promoters actually say that your body’s reaction to consuming caustic concentrated bleach is proof that it’s working.
Although yes, this was diligent and effective, if you think about it, it didn’t really take a lot of work to find out what was in these crap products, and yet tons of people were buying and consuming bleach as a magic alternative medicine cure and it never even occurred to them to examine what was in it.
Or maybe the assumption is that some agency will protect you from anything harmful, but of course, all gubmit is evil anyway, right?
That’s the sound of desperation. People who have currently uncurable chronic diseases often go to alternative medicine because conventional medicine hasn’t done the job. Even if they’re not directly life threatening, some of those diseases are so unpleasant that sufferers consider suicide as an alternative to the pain. If you’re seriously considering killing yourself as a way of ending your misery, anything that promises to cure you would seem worthwhile. Even if it kills you, you might think you’re better off.
