Kind of more Marlene Dietrich than Shania Twain but OK

HAPPY SPOOKY-DAY EVERYBODY! Today is the day when it’s normal to see goblins and vampires all over America, because it is Halloween. Did you do a costume? Post it in the comments! (Yes, we said we were going to dress up as Trump’s Pee Tape for Halloween. We also allowed for the possibility that we were lazy and wouldn’t even make it to Home Depot to buy yellow tape or to Old Navy for a long sleeved black shirt. Guess what we picked? That’s right, we picked “Zero Effort Drinking” for Halloween and flaked on all eight parties we were invited to. But enough about us! Just kidding, there is never enough about us.)

Megyn Kelly spiced up her very bad show for Halloween, by doing a costume. It was a very bad costume. :(

Please click “play” on the tweet above to watch Megyn Kelly “dancing.” HAHA, made you click it, how was that for a Halloween fright? BOO!

Of course, Megyn Kelly would choose to dress as Shania Twain, an overproduced “country” “singer” who is neither country nor gifted in the art of singing. (Although we will defend that “Any Man Of Mine” song until THE DAY WE DIE. Twain’s career went downhill after that, her breakthrough single.)

Here’s how the show opened, according to Jezebel’s daily Megyn Kelly post, which we cannot recommend enough:

  • The announcer said, “And now your ghost…I mean host, Megyn Kelly!”
  • Megyn Kelly walked onstage dressed as Shania Twain from the “Man! I Feel LIke a Woman” video.
  • Megyn Kelly said, “We’re having so much fun already!”
  • Bobby Finger said, “We truly are.”
  • Megyn Kelly sang, “Man! I feel like a woman.” (Just that line.)
  • Megyn Kelly said, “As you know, Halloween is all about the scares and the surprises.”
  • Bobby Finger said, “Oh yes, I’m fully aware.”

Aren’t you glad NBC axed Tamron Hall’s show to make room for this wondrous excrement?

Also, Shania Twain was on the show. She dressed as … Marie Osmond dressed up as a wild cat of some sort? Anyway, here is another .gif of Kelly dancing, this time with Shania Twain, courtesy of the aforementioned Jezebel post:

All righty.

Also the “Fox & Friends” people dressed up for Halloween and they looked like idiots, especially the men. Brian Kilmeade dressed up as his own book (clever!) and Steve Doocy was just wearing a suit with money all over it, because he was Paul Manafort’s Money Laundering Crimes somebody who “looks like a million bucks” (LOL)!

Here, if you hate yourself, is a full video of the “Fox & Friends” cast of maundering dipshits revealing their costumes:

Aren’t you glad you watched that?

OK, so Megyn Kelly did Halloween the worst, the cast of “Fox & Friends” did it second worst, and let’s just say Donald Trump was third worst, for choosing to put on that tacky orange make-up on his face for YET ANOTHER DAY.

Who did it BEST? Gonna go ahead and go with “Justin Trudeau as Clark Kent,” oh yes he did that:

Now have an open thread. You earned it, just kidding we earned it, GOODBYE.

      I’ll say this: Awful as she is, and she is awful, she still didn’t deserve to be drooled over by the likes of Roger Ailes.

      Whether that means that she merits star status on a a non-Fox News network is another question and my answer is, “Hell, no.”

      She’s also not going to stand up there and “re-litigate the Civil War”. Just accept that the people running this country have sympathies with the people who plotted rebellion against this country and move on.

    • Three Finger Salute

      It’s actually a very sad story. She had cancer I think and it wrecked her vocal chords. It took her years to get her voice trained back to passable standards but she was never the same. She also had a complete breakdown when her husband cheated on her. Robert “Mutt” Lange is a very influential music producer in Canada and he had a part to play also in derailing her career.

      Canadians deserve better than this. Too bad she didn’t get to hang out with Kal-El Trudeau.

    I miss the Maundering Dipshits. I remember they stole the fucking show when they opened for the Smashing Pumpkins. Alas, their lead tuba player took the brown acid and got caught in a compromising position with two llamas, four badgers, a crazy frog, and a narwhal.

    They tried replacing their original tubist with a hefty-nosed penguin who had played in a heavy-metal band, but that maneuver failed to work out.

    • The Wanderer

  • Teecha

    It’s All Saint’s Day here, and I’m English* so I don’t do dressing up or trick or treating. But at school last week I discovered that none of my kids knew why it was trick or treating. They didn’t know that if you don’t get a treat, you play a trick. Where I lived in England, shops would stop selling eggs to kids about a fortnight before Hallowe’en in order to avoid pensioners getting their houses egged.

    *and a miserable bugger

  • Martini Ambassador 🍸

    We had about 25 kids visit for the day. It’s a new tradition for them, so I think the French still don’t quite “get” Halloween. It went on all day long, starting late morning and ending about 9pm. And they say “donnez-moi des bon-bons.” We tried teaching them the proper “trick or treat” greeting, but they remain confused. Speak English, you little heathens!

    • David Chaillou

      Trick or treat doesn’t translate at all in French. Plus, it would ensure a very bad reception for whoever tried that gambit.

      We’ve had Halloween in France for about 20 years. The general feel is that it failed to take off and is now slowly fading away, at least from a commercial perspective.

      • Shanzgood

        My dad’s street will get THOUSANDS of visitors tonight, as usual. My daughter is getting dressed up right now.

      • Martini Ambassador 🍸

        I joke, of course. I think the bon-bon thing is adorbs, and I wouldn’t dare translate something like that for children’s consumption. Too prone to misinterpretation and possible jail time.

        The local ladies here tell me that kids trick-or-treating is a relatively new thing. Maybe it faded away and started up again? This village is pretty small, but the kids seemed pretty into the dressing up and collecting candy. The boulangerie across the street was mobbed all day with costumed cuties.

        • David Chaillou

          Could be. I know the hypers and supers now do very low-key promotion, but obviously kids like the idea of free sweets distribution. It’s kind of limited to the 6-12 age group though, totally not cool for teenagers.

          This was our afternoon’s work. Nobody came.

    Today in screwing over the peons-

    Working for tips isn’t easy, but at the end of the day, waitstaff and other tipped workers can count on those gratuities ending up in their pockets.

    That may change under the Trump administration. The Department of Labor has indicated it intends to rescind an Obama-era rule restricting restaurant owners from pooling tips, or taking tips from waitstaff and redistributing the money to workers throughout the restaurant, according to the National Law Review.

    While the Labor Department hasn’t yet disclosed details of the proposed rule, labor activists fear the new regulation will allow employers to take ownership of tips as long as their workers earn the federal minimum wage. Restaurant owners could then take the tips, pool them and divide the money among their employees. And some activists worry that owners might decide to keep a portion of the tips for themselves.

    • the_steamer

      I hate to tell everyone this but it happens anyway, and the waitresses aren’t making minimum wage to begin with.

    So, CA gas tax is going up tomorrow by 12 cents a gallon, which is apparently going to trigger some sort of armageddon event according to local republicans. Me, I don’t give a shit. In LA the price of gas is erratic and based more on where the gas station is, I don’t think I’m gonna notice 12 cents a gallon. I also think I might notice the road improvements that the money pays for (hopefully).

    • Roadstergal

      The fluctuations between and within gas stations regularly exceed 12 cents.

      I go to work via bicycle or scooter. Don’t care. My husband commutes via Volt. Doesn’t care.

    • Erala Contratista

      Yup, here in the ‘burbs there has been about a 50¢ difference in gas prices depending on where you go. Don’t drive trucks anymore, so gas seems cheap anyway.
      Our state roads are shambolic compared to Tejas or the South, which tend not to be in the same economic range as Silly Cone Valley.

            Of the Large Heroic Soundtracks. I’d say Howard Shore is the All-Around King – that guy can write brilliantly in any style.

        • Doug Langley

          He did Jaws, Close Encounters, Raiders of Lost Ark, Schindler’s List, and a little something called Lost In Space.

          • Serai 1

            He ruled Epic Soundtracks all through the 80’s and early 90’s. His work in Jurassic Park is just gorgeous.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8zlUUrFK-M

            I love this theme so fucking much. Somehow Williams manages to capture the longing in the story, and the little touch of sadness at the dream never really being obtainable. It’s not a kid’s theme, it’s looking away at something distant. Don’t know how he did that.

    Want some Halloween scares? Have heard from 2 recruiters. The first was working on a web design job for me for the past month or two. Submitted to client, waited, waited . . . they never said anything. Finally told they’d already hired someone. Surprise!

    Second recruiter really, really eagar to get me going for the programming job. Finally talked with the account manager today. After some chatting, she says “Well, let me be honest. Your experience is a few years old, the others we placed over have much more recent experience. Well, we’ll see what the client says.”

    Ugh. The reason why my experience is fuckin’ couple years old is because NOBODY WILL FUCKIN’ HIRE ME AND I’M STUCK DOING STUPID CONTRACT JOBS THAT RUIN MY RESUME AND MAKE ME LOOK LIKE A NON-SERIOUS JOB HOPPER GRR GRR.

    • Courser_Resistance

      I feel your pain. I really need to start looking for a perm job and I’m not even sure where to start. Even the Unemployment Job website accounting jobs are posted by fucking Robert Half & Associates, a shitty national recruiting racket. I’ve been registered with them for probably almost 20 years and I can’t remember the last time they even sent me for an interview.

      I’m really sick and tired of wasting time and energy ‘interviewing’ with goddamn recruiters only to end up with nothing. The last two contracts I had (and one I backed out of) I never had to meet with face to face with *anyone* up-front. So basically, I don’t even know where to start since I’ve been out of the market for 2 years.

      • Doug Langley

        Hmm. The file clerk job was through Robert Half. And a recruiter got me the QA job back in Feb. (Not his fault they cut it short.) I’ve have good luck with recruiters. Anyway, I know the frustration.

    If we’re going to look down our noses at her because she got farther on her toned abdomen and talented collaborators than on her vocal gifts, we’re going to have to dump on Madonna too. AND WE DON’T WANT THAT, DO WE.

    And complaining that she’s not “country” is as irrelevant as complaining that Def Leppard (also vaulted into mega-act status by the producing talents of her now ex-husband Robert “Mutt” Lange) isn’t “metal”. Patsy Cline and Judas Priest are available for those who want them.

The candy that was bought and then had to be re-bought because it didn’t stand a chance while we carved all those pumpkins and put together costumes. I want everyone here with children who are getting ready to go out for Trick-or-Treating to PLEASE give them a long squeeze, and tell them how adorable they are, and then take lots of pictures.

    i’m all for people reinventing themselves and having fun and all. but seriously, though. just a minute earlier, wasn’t she the high priestess of all things important in american civic life? how much she scolded us. and now she gets to acts like nothing matters?

    • Suttree

      Americans have short memories. How many people who watch the today show remember that Santa is white and pepper spray is a condiment?

    • Carpe Vagenda

      Is that hypocritical? As near as I can remember, the only thing that really mattered or made you important or valuable was living in Manhattan and being paid in gross disproportion to your value. She’s keeping it real.

      • hudson

        i wouldn’t know. my contact was always people with low/middling level of influence in NYC and myself was a day-traveling tunnels &bridges type. i really would not know. all i remember is every time metro north crossed the river, the mood and energy shifted. it was like out here anything was possible. i’ve seen passengers solve diff. equations, i’ve seen passengers yakking in silent cars about “omg linda”.

        • Carpe Vagenda

          No, I don’t mean that. I mean, I grew up in Manhattan when the suburbanization strategy had driven most of the white folks, including my family, out of the city. And then when the really valuable real estate filled back up with yuppie scum, all of a sudden it was a positive virtue to be a hyena.

          It was all way simpler before the Norwegian invasion is I guess what I’m getting at.

          • hudson

            i can imagine. i grew up in a small town and a village. for what it is worth, their character and deficiencies gave so many quirky unique experiences. now i go back, nominally random metrics like the GDP at these places is higher, but the soul of the places are long gone.

  • Panika MCD

    as I said on the Wonkagenda, here’s a little story about why we will never drill ANWR:

    my parents worked for the Alaska Division of Geologic and Geophysical Surveys from the mid-70s until my father died in 1987. my mother continued to work there until we moved to TX in 1990. my dad was pretty much a rock star in his field and when Reagan took office he was working on some really ground breaking work historically mapping the Brooks Range. he was also in conversations about going back to his thesis work–what made him a rock star and stuff what has been in the news recently due to the Mexico earthquakes–when he died. because of Reagan, he got moved from his historical mapping to “find us some oil on ANWR”.

    at the same time, the governor appointed a cartographer to head the division and he, in turn, hired an MBA to lead the Fairbanks office. many people in the office were put on stupid projects. my mother had been working on geothermal test wells in Kenai and was moved to “does placer mining pollute glacially fed streams” (it doesn’t–it’s the old timey stuff and glacially fed streams are naturally silty–the goal was to have a study that said a type of mining did not pollute and then count on legislators to not know the difference between placer mining and strip mining–the latter of which pollutes a fuck ton). they even sent my mother an intern two summers in a row who was so stupid that she kept labeling the water samples with washable marker–so they had to collect many samples twice.

    anyhow, MBA dude started to get pissy that these geologists are not providing him with the answers he’s been told to get. my dad, in particular, said ANWR was not worth mining because the mountains are so metamorphosed that you’d break several drills trying to get into the ground and then most of the oil would have been burned off during the heat and pressure periods which created the mountains. the only areas that really have any oil are in the Coastal Plain where the porcupine caribou exclusively calf. not only is this bad for tribal relations with tribes which rely on the herds because oil wells tend to leak toxic fumes (which totally fucks their argument that the moose cuddle up to the pipeline for warmth because the rigs and the pipeline are not the same at all), but there is also the little matter of it not being financially worth it. see, when they make the infrastructure to get the oil out of the area once it’s brought to the surface, the companies have to put some green in the game–it’s a P3, yay! and they would spend way more money than they stand to gain.

    drilling on ANWR then becomes mostly a symbol of “why we have to go to the Middle East for oil” and not an actual option. BP–which happens to be the largest driller of the North Slope–has been opposed to drilling ANWR for decades in a public manner, but most are behind closed doors opposed. they have done their homework and their surveys and they know my dad was right. only Shell and Citgo are actually interested in it. so, yeah, this MBA dude was super pissed he could not get the answers Shell, Citgo, and, by extension, the Reagan administration wanted.

    so MBA dude starts writing letters back to the main office in Anchorage (don’t know why the main office is not in Juneau, but my best guess is that Juneau is 30 thousand people with nowhere to go) and, remembering his “office management” courses, he CCs everyone in the office. my dad starts highlighting the funny parts and putting them on his door–most of the office follows his lead. finally, MBA dude gets someone from Anchorage to try to do a sting late at night, but my dad, being a workaholic, is there and hears them talking in the hall. since no one locked their offices, my dad went around and took down the letters–replacing them with art from all the division workers’ children. MBA dude looks crazy and gets fired. (it’s not like he couldn’t have taken photos, he just did not. dumbo.)

    MBA dude, it turns out, had worked on the governor’s previous campaign and goes down to Juneau to cry on the governor’s shoulder. the governor was all, “how do we cause Dillon pain?” MBA dude says my dad’s favorite part of the job is field work, so they ban him from the field for the summer. (we did make a trip up there anyhow, but that’s a story for another time because this is a long story.)

    my dad was very upset all summer and my mom was pretty much done with that so one day she goes, “hey, J—. let’s take the kids to the fair.” and he is too upset. and she says, “yeah, you were upset yesterday. you can be upset again tomorrow. but today, we’re going to stick a pin in that and take the kids to the fair!” first place she takes him is the Democratic Party booth.

    they spend the rest of the summer and part of the fall campaigning for Steve Cowper who wins and every bad thing goes away…until the next year. but that is sad and we have had enough sad today.

    yay! campaigning works. boo anyone who says we should drill ANWR because it is a dumb idea. boo anyone who says we have to go to the Middle East for oil because us freaky porcupine caribou lovers say they can’t sully the environment. and boo Citgo and Shell.

    the end.

    My daughters wanted to watch the start of Lord of the Rings before bed last night, instead of the Charlie Brown Halloween special we had cued up. They’ve never seen it before. I was thinking, not having seen the movie in years, that The Fellowship of the Ring started as a harmless bucolic with partying hobbits and Gandalf blowing smoke rings, and it wouldn’t be too traumatizing. I forgot about all the backstory that’s loaded in there, with war and amputated fingers and 30-foot tall Lord Sauron killing the shit out of people and Gollum getting tortured on the rack, etc., etc. The four-year-old didn’t quite get it and was unaffected, but the six-year-old burst into tears while walking to her bedroom and said she never wanted to see that movie again. “Daddy, why were they so mean to Gollum?”

        Right? I forgot the wring-wraiths are in the beginning, too, right after Bilbo puts on the ring. “Who are they, daddy?” “They’re the Nazgul, the ring-wraiths. They’re like undead demons, and they’re coming to find the ring. They’re hunting for Frodo. OK, sweet dreams!”

          What’s cool is that my niece always knew that if something got too intense for her, she could just walk out of the room and chill out for a bit, and then go back to the movie when she was ready. And then one of us would talk to her about it on her terms.
          My sis watched Shaun of the Dead with her this past weekend, and she LOVED it.
          I think your 6yo will be okay. But doesn’t it feel terrible to do or allow something that truly scares or freaks out a little kid? Uggghhh, the worst.

          • alpacapunchbowl

            There are a lot of aspects of that movie that were quite well done, but overall that thing is a pile of shite.

          • notaten

            When The Exorcist first came out, my niece who always spent summers with us, begged my Dad to take us to see it at the theater, since we were both too young to go on our own. She was all Please please please Grampa, I have to see that movie. So we went, and later that night when we should have all been fast asleep, us girls got up because we couldn’t sleep, only to find my Dad already sitting in the living room with the light on. He said,that movie terrified me, I will never take you to an R movie again.

          • alpacapunchbowl

            That’s so interesting! One of my uncles went to the seminary for a couple years as a teenager, he was going to be a Catholic priest.
            I didn’t get around to watching it til I was in my early 20s and had graduated film school. I thought it was just kinda gross (stabby crucifix “masturbation”) and reliant on jump cuts, which in my opinion are just cheap “scares”.
            But my uncle who dropped out of the seminary? He seriously thinks that is the scariest movie he’s ever seen. And I’ve watched some scary fucking movies with him. That’s probably the scariest thing about that movie for me, even though it says more about his psyche than it does about evil and the supernatural.

          • notaten

            What upset my Dad so much was the fact that it involved a child in all of the evilness. He could never tolerate seeing a child abused or suffering, whether it was real or not.

      • aureolaborealis

        I once had a movie marathon with my cousin and her three-year-old daughter. We watched Natural Born Killers and Pulp Fiction. As far as I know the child is not in therapy these days, but who knows.

      Fuck the Cabaret Act.

      Between 1940 and to 1967, the New York Police Department issued regulations requiring musicians and other employees in cabarets to obtain a New York City Cabaret Card, and musicians such as Chet Baker, Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk, and Billie Holiday had their right to perform suspended.

  • bupkus231

    I read this post over at “New York” magazine’s “Daily Intelligencer” blog just a few minutes ago. I don’t know why, but to me, this illustrates more the problem with political writers/pundits than with the Democratic Party:

    Link: http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2017/10/the-dysfunction-of-democratic-party-distilled-in-one-tweet.html

    Let’s say that for some reason you, a political observer, had come to the conclusion that the Democratic Party is an inept, out-of-touch, catastrophic mess when it comes to its efforts to convince people to vote for its politicians and its policies, and that its failures on this front could help explain how one of the worst, least popular, and most transparently dangerous to the nation major-party candidates in American history was elected president a year ago.

    I got a better idea. Instead of starting your post with this bullshit Berniebro slant, you talk about your subject honestly.

    The post goes on to discuss a tweet sent out this morning from the “Senate Democrats” account – one where the tweet drew deliberate parallels to the Netflix series “Stranger Things”.

    Jesse Singal has usually impressed me, but here his criticisms are juvenile. 1) The Democrats did not make the allusion to “Stranger Things” absolutely explicit, 2) Nobody but “coastal elites” care about “Stranger Things”, anyway – and 3) The tweet calls out “middle-class tax increases” in the Rump tax reform proposal, when instead it should be trumpeting that it’s a “giveaway to the ultra rich”.

    I guess that third might be a somewhat “legitimate” criticism – but for Singal to use this as the centerpiece of his “criticism” of the Democratic leadership is just stupidity – and THAT is what the problem with the Democratic Party is. Too many Democrats seem to think that creating ludicrous criticisms of the party shows how “serious” we are about our pursuit of liberal goals. Instead of writing “clickbait” headlines for bullshit, we should be making sure that we do not sabotage our own goals….

    • Proud Liberal

      If Democrats are so God damned bad, why do Republicans keep wanting to suppress the vote?

      • Khavrinen

        Because sometimes they need more than just a little blue pill?

    • Proud Liberal

      Democrats win every election. Republicans cheat.

    • Thiazin Red

      I don’t think the third thing is right. I would bet that telling people that the tax plan raises their taxes would make people angrier than the cuts for the wealthy.

      • bupkus231

        I think that Singal’s formulation was that talking about the “middle income earner” ( not so much the “lower income earner” ) is falling for the Republican fiction that they’re all about the middle class. He’s saying just avoid arguing on the Republican’s terms, and go right after what they’re really hiding – benefits for the rich.

        As it is, I think the last 40 years have proved that talking about “lower income earners” turn Americans ( well, white Americans ) right off, because that’s a dog whistle for minorities.

    • Sheepshagger

      It’s like being married to a psychopath. You want to argue from a position of good faith, they want to spin, manipulate, lie and dissemble. You can’t win that debate. All you can do is stock up on duct tape, and one moonless night, do what needs doing.

      • Carpe Vagenda

        I don’t think it’s an accident that they actually employ Rebecca Traister and she writes for their fashion imprint while Milo’s BFF Olivia Nuzzi is the new darling of the berner mosh pit that is their political site.

        • Sheepshagger

          So far as I can work out from a great distance theres political jounalism money in two things in America- excoriating democrats and excusing republicans. It speaks volumes about the respective mindsets.

          • Carpe Vagenda

            but, seriously, they employ Rebecca Traister, which at this point is seeming to me like a genius strategy to keep her from writing for people who aren’t running the journalistic version of Tod Browning’s Freaks.

Chait, Rich, and even Sullivan are obvious, but I like that they picked up Ed Kilgore last year….

          • Carpe Vagenda

            Just. They hired even-the-liberal Jonathon Chait whose wife works for a charter school advocacy lobbying group, but we’re supposed to accept that all of his employees are invested in fucking with Democrats because everyone who wrote for The New Republic is.

      About 25 years ago, I was re-winding the spring on my then shop industrial roll-up door.

I climbed down off the ladder shaking and called the pros.

    What the Hell – a dad shows up at our door with his 2-ish year old son. I have no idea who they are, just random trick-or-treaters. Cute kid, but what 2yo isn’t?

    Mind you, both our kids are adults, no longer tied to the local HS crowd, etc. Nevertheless, my wife instantly recognizes the dad (one of our kids contemporaries, last seen god only knows how many years ago), and on top of that, knows the son’s name and hits it off with him like they’re lifelong buddies.

    How the ever-lovin FUCK does she know this shit – I swear, mothers have a highly advanced subspace communication network, and as a mere husband/dad, I feel like an inferior species.

    I went to the supermarket at 2 pm to get coffee, which I forgot to get 2 days ago, and instead of it taking thirty minutes it took two and a half hours because I just happened to witness TWO separate car accidents while driving the 4 miles to the supermarket. First accident was 2 miles down the road – a northbound idiot made a U-turn at an intersection, and 2 cars heading south with green lights hit him, that took 40 minutes, then 5 minutes after I left that scene and 3 blocks from the supermarket, I saw another idiot turning left from a southbound outside lane and hitting someone who was actually in the southbound left-turn lane and turning left, and then a northbound car hit them both. That took another 40 minutes. Ten people are in the hospital tonight and 6 cars are totalled because 2 people were morons. This is why I don’t worry about terrorism…cause Americans can’t fucking drive and they want to kill me. BTW…all the cashiers and baggers at the supermarket were wearing Halloween costumes, which was really cool. Then I got home and heard about the terrorist attack in NYC, and oddly it didn’t make the impression on me that it should have.

    In about 5 minutes I am going to get out my DVD of “Rocky Horror Picture Show” and watch it. They used to show it every year on one of the cable channels, but for some reason they stopped doing that. I’ve got all my props ready, but I can’t dance the Time Warp anymore, the knees won’t oblige. It’s hard to believe that it was FORTY YEARS AGO that I used to go see this every Saturday night at midnight with my friends after smoking a little pot, and then afterwards we would smoke more pot. Seems like yesterday…but it wasn’t, it was 40 years ago. Damn! Frankly, this movie is not as good without pot.

        We did that too. That movie theatre was taken over by the local University and is now a “venue” with plays and concerts and such, nicely restored with new plush seats. I go to concerts there sometimes, and I sit there and remember what it used to be like, and smile. Sometimes I will look at a nearby stranger who is clearly as old as I am, and I will smile and say “I have this terrible urge to flick a Bic lighter” and they will laugh.

    If she wanted to be scary I think Megyn should have dressed as a decent person but I don’t think she can pull it off.

  • Bitter Scribe

    Once there was this cute little boy in my neighborhood who temporarily had to wear an eyepatch to correct a lazy-eye condition. Come Halloween he came around dressed as, what else, a pirate.

    I miss trick-or-treaters. For the last 20+ years I’ve been living in apartments where they never venture.

    • alpacapunchbowl

      Right?? I’ve lived in Chicago since 2000. There was one year, like 2001 or 2002 that there was a family with three little boys living downstairs from us in a classic Chicago 3-flat. The kids heard us hanging out on the porch when they got home from trick or treating and shouted up asking if we had any candy, so we tossed mini candy bars off our balcony as the kiddos tried to catch them in their candy sacks until their mom told them to “stop bothering the ladies upstairs” and get their asses in the house for dinner.
      Everything about Halloween and playing with those kids was pure joy.
      The nice thing about being 40 is that I have a lot of friends with kids, and today is a GOLDMINE for pictures of kids looking ridiculously cute in their costumes.
      I don’t post photos of my niece or nephew in public forums, but DAMN those kids are cute and fucking awesome!

      • Bitter Scribe

        You sound like a fun aunt.

        Once I lived in the same building with a young couple that was caring for the woman’s 8-year-old niece as well as their own 3-year-old daughter. At that time I worked for a food industry trade mag and we got food samples all the time. That Halloween this gourmet confectionery company shipped us a case of the most awesome candied apples you’ve ever seen. They were coated in thick layers of absolutely premium, decadent chocolate.

        I managed to snag a couple of them for the neighbor girls. I still remember the looks on their faces when I handed them over.

        • alpacapunchbowl

          That’s so great!!
          And thanks! I have zero desire to be a mother, but I LOVE being and if I do say so myself, I am also really fucking good at being an auntie.

    I just read the Government memo on Manafort and Gates’ release on bail. It is…interesting.
    Amongst other things- Manafort is looking at 151-181 months in jail, by Fed Sentencing guidelines. So neatly 20 years. And you serve those on Federal beefs.
    Manafort has three passports with different numbers. He has applied ten times for passports in tthe last ten years. His net worth is variously estimated by him at between 20 and 150 million dollars. Within the last year Manafort has travelled to “Dubai, Cancun, Panama, Havana, Shanghai, Madrid, London, Tokyo And Grand Cayaman Island” Gates has opened at least 55 bank accounts since 2004. Manafort registered a phone and email account in an alias this march, and travelled to Mexico China and Ecuador with it.

  • Angela Ruzzo

    I just went to make popcorn before turning on “Rocky Horror Picture Show”, and as I was putting the packet in the microwave I thought “Does anyone make popcorn the old-fashioned way anymore?” You know, with a pot on the stove and some hot oil, the way my mother did it? I haven’t done that in 30 years. But I think it’s like riding a bicycle, you never forget how. Do they still make Jiffy Pop popcorn, the kind with the tinfoil that expanded as you cooked it on the stove??? Those were so cool when I was young, but my mother was too frugal to buy them.

    • Yes. And yes

    • Jonny On Maui

      Ummm… Yup…

    • Yes, and yes.

    • Bitter Scribe

      To me, if you’re really into popcorn, invest in a hot-air popper. They’re very efficient and they allow you to dispense with that saturated-fat-laden oil.

      • Angela Ruzzo

        I’m not really into it. I wore braces for 2-1/2 years when I was a teenager, and I sort of lost the taste for popcorn during that phase, because if you ate it with braces, you spent a week picking the pieces out. I only eat it on special occasions now.

        • Bitter Scribe

          Yeah, same here (except for the braces).

      • But the saturated fat is the best part!

        • Bitter Scribe

          You can toss it with a little olive oil. Healthier and IMO tastes better.

          • I have a friend who owns an old movie house in upstate New York. He had kept the original popcorn machine going as long as he could but it broke down last year. And of course, everyone complained that it’s modern replacement just wasn’t the same. Poor guy found another, working model of the one that broke down. In Arizona. ROAD TRIP! The customers are happy, again, and he bought a broken one from the same place for parts…

      • Suse

        And then you put but lotsa buttah on!

    • NastyBossetti

      I thought the “old-fashioned way” was with an air popper.

      • Angela Ruzzo

        Oh, no. You use a big pot – a heavy dutch oven is best because it has a heavy lid – and cooked over a campfire at night, accompanied by ghost stories, is best of all.

        • Suse

          Yes!

        • Bitter Scribe

          I thought that was s’mores.

          • Angela Ruzzo

            No dutch oven needed for s’mores, just a stick. One can prepare both at the same time if one is a proper Girl Scout, as their motto is “Be Prepared.” I believe there is a badge for cooking two delights simultaneously. If there isn’t, there should be.

  • Ilgattomorte

    I just heard on the news that in the wake of today’s attack in NY city, police were able to classify this as a terrorist attack within a matter of hours. Really? It took hours?

    Apparently it takes hours to determine that a mass murderer isn’t white.

    • Suse

      It was “terrists did it” about 2 seconds after the attack.

      • And ISIS one hot-FoxNews minute after that.

        • Resistor Radio

          I guess Hillary had an alibi then. :/

            Probably had another attack of dying at the time.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      Actualy it took about 5 seconds after the guy jumped out of his truck. Then hours to filter to the guys at the microphones.

    • Boscoe

      Someone somewhere has determined that “hours” counts as the appropriate amount of time between racist and totally not racist.

  • ariel_gee_398

    She was treated terribly, but a $500,000 settlement for being detained for 20 minutes is obscene. https://twitter.com/AP/status/925498713430220800

    • Resistor Radio

      Isn’t the point of those settlements more to deter future actions by overzealous assholes?

      • ariel_gee_398

        In theory, but this settlement is an outlier for this kind of case, and I think that’s because she’s a white lady. For comparison, Philando Castile’s family only got $3 million.

        • CripesAmighty

          Well, now we have a new precedent, don’t we? Pay the fuck up, pigs.

        • Resistor Radio

          I thought of that right after I posted my comment, the settlement for murder versus being briefly detained.

        • UncleTravelingMatt

          It’s not because she is white, necessarily. It’s because the city/county risk management insurer knows they have no possible defense. In Castile’s case there was a defense.

        • notaten

          Yeah, if she were a black woman, they would have discovered that she skipped school in 8th grade to smoke pot and go to a rap concert, therefore thug who had it coming. Usually, $200 grand or less claim for POC and it goes right through.

    • CripesAmighty

      Don’t wanna pay? Don’t unlawfully arrest.

      • ariel_gee_398

        I’m not mad that she’s getting paid. I think it’s wrong that she’s getting so much more than people of color get for being harassed by cops.

        • OrG

          I’m mad they’re getting so much LESS.

          • ariel_gee_398

            Right, and this case isn’t going to change that. And taking race out of it, this guy was arrested and detained for 10 hours because cops thought the donut glaze in his car was meth. He only got $37,500. He actually suffered real damages – claims he can’t get a job. http://nypost.com/2017/10/16/man-gets-settlement-after-cops-mistake-krispy-kremes-for-meth/

          • jesterpunk

            That guy should get a lot more money, add a few more 0’s onto the end of that settlement. It needs to be enough to make them think twice about protecting bad cops.

          • ariel_gee_398

            To be fair, the problem with that case wasn’t just bad cops but the reliance on shitty roadside drug tests that are notoriously unreliable. But they should rethink using those, yes.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      It’s not compensatory, it’s punitive. They can blow off lesser sums and go about business as usual, but not this … it will make an impression on the P.D.

    • jesterpunk

      Good, maybe if that keeps happening the local tax payers will tell the cops to shape up or replace them all until they get rid of all of the bad cops.

      • ariel_gee_398

        Taxpayers are already paying tons for these settlements. NYC has a budget line item for use of force settlements.

        • jesterpunk

          Then make sure the settlements go over that amount or make each settlement that amount. They need to know its not ok.

    • UncleTravelingMatt

      I dunno. I value Constitutional rights pretty highly. Perhaps if they whacked the County’s insurance carrier for a few million, the SO would supervise its goons properly.

    But Wonkette – world is sort of a kayfabe too. Snarky folk, pretending we’re all making hopeful comments, toward a possible better outcome. But all under the assumption that COMMENTZ IS NOT ALLOWED. But maybe Wonkville is closer to reality than Trump’s WWF universe? Here’s hoping.

    Office trick or treating was awesome. Tons of kids (and no work done).

    An estimated 126 million Americans, roughly one-third of the nation’s population, received Russian-backed content on Facebook during the 2016 campaign, according to prepared testimony the company submitted Monday to the Senate Judiciary Committee and obtained by NBC News.

        I would be fascinated to learn about this individual’s claimed credentials that make he or she an expert

        • cmd resistor

          They never got to that part, her credentials. It was a woman who had what seemed to have a Spanish accent although she did make sure we all knew she was an “American.” She kept talking about how you can tell a terrorist if they look down when you talk to them or something, and asking “how did this guy get in?” She also ranted about people overstaying visas. Of course she knew nothing about the circumstances of how he got into the country or his status. She seemed to be operating on the assumption he had just recently snuck in at an airport where someone wasn’t paying proper attention. I guess just general hysteria is all they need to do to convince their viewers.

UP! They’d all lean forward, LEFT! They’d all lean, etc. He said after a while they’d really feel like they were going up and down.

    In other news, the Halloween parade will go off as planned in Greenwich Village. When I lived in Manhattan in the ’80’s-a transplant from Rochester-I tried to take my kids “trick or treating”. Door to door, where? Upstairs in the six story apartment building? Did not work.

    Then I discovered the Halloween Parade thing. which in those times was mostly a gay thing…dressed my kids as Batman and Zorro, joined the parade, got some startled looks from the gay men parading-they were obviously not accustomed to children in their parade. But they were ok with it, and by the time it ended my kids were getting applauded.

    I remember my younger son asking me, “Mom, why are all these men dressed up as ladies?”

    Because it’s Halloween.

      Pretty boilerplate, and not Trumpish at all. I’m sure some staffer did it, and probably from a “fill in the blank” statement. Pretty flat and without much heart.

  • alwayspunkindrublic

    Not to piss on the Halloween fun, but I got an email today from my immigration attorney friend in Phoenix. One of her current cases is a 45 year old Mexican man who’s been in detention for 5 years after getting picked up in a sweep by Arpaio’s goons. He’s been here doing honest work since he was a youngster; he has one kid on a full-ride college scholarship, another an AP honors student in high school, and a child at home who is disabled. If she doesn’t win in court tomorrow, they’re all-his wife included-getting their asses sent to some dusty little shithole in Oaxaca that doesn’t even have a school or a hospital. Next asshole that says this is making America Great Again is gonna get a knot on the fucking head.

    • Panika MCD

      did you know we can’t deport someone with a communicative disease?

      • SisterArtemis

        I think it’s “communicable” but I kinda like your version

        • alwayspunkindrublic

          If we could deport people with communicative problems, the country would empty out pretty quick.

          • redarmyzombie

            Oh, if only…

          you’re right. I’m not thinkin’ hard tonight.

        • Panika MCD

          I know. I just find that interesting. we’ve had this poor guy with an antibiotic resistant disease (I can’t remember which one) in detention for like 12 years because of it.

    • Vagenda and Pee-ara

      But can we really be sure they’re not all a bunch of rapists?

      Just kidding. This country is making me physically ill. I’ve never been one to cut and run, but I’m seriously thinking about going somewhere that’s not America.

      • alwayspunkindrublic

        I understand the sentiment, but this is my fucking country too. I’m gonna stay here and fight for it.

        • Vagenda and Pee-ara

          I’m old, though, and the fight’s going out of me. I’m seriously afraid this country is turning authoritarian, and I’m not going to be able to hack it in a country run by neo Nazis who think old women are useless.

          • Maggielle

            If it gets bad enough and I get old enough, I may very well end up weaponizing myself.

          • Vagenda and Pee-ara

            I’ve always thought if I found out I had cancer, and only had a few months to live, I might do a little damage on the way out. I’d consider it a public service.

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            I know…and I didn’t mean my comment to be a rebuke. I feel horribly for people like my mom…93, been fighting the good fight her whole life, sent a husband and sons off to war to fight for this country…and she may not live past this era of degradation that Trump has plunged us into. It’s fucking criminal.

          • Vagenda and Pee-ara

            I had a dear 77 year old friend who passed away two years ago, and as much as I miss him, I’m kind of glad he didn’t live to see this shitshow.

            I think I’m just tired today, because I’m usually ready to fight these people with my last breath. Most days I think “you know what? I’m old, so screw it, I will literally fight them to my death.”

      Whatever happens at the hearing, I hope your friend doesn’t get too discouraged. It seems like every immigration lawyer I know is mumbling about getting out. They’ve been taking a hell of a beating. I guess if we run short, all those people who make lawyer jokes can take their places fighting for people who can’t fight for themselves.

      • alwayspunkindrublic

        Nah, she’s been at this for a long time, and is in it to win it; toe to toe with Arpaio all those years. She is pretty discouraged right now…the odds have gotten stacked against the good guys. Many of the stories she tells are heartbreaking…but also ones that restore your faith in humanity.

          • SisterArtemis

            Since she was a wee thing (she’s still a wee thing, but even wee-er), she’s had this whole story about not being human, and how she’s actually from the Blood Planet, where they all drink blood, but for some reason her REAL parents (she always makes sure to emphasize that) stowed her away with us to keep her safe. From what? that part changes all the time.

            I’d worry more except that she’s quite attached to her mom (the real/not real actually-borned her one) and has never actually been spotted drinking blood.
