I filched that photo from their MySpace. Oddly, they don’t list tonight’s gig on MySpace!

I plan to attend. Unfortunately, without a camera.


That Self-Alienated Bitch Ayn Rand Will Kill Us All

August 24, 2007

Obscure Company Is Behind 9/11 Demolition Work

The John Galt Corporation of the Bronx, hired last year for the dangerous and complex job of demolishing the former Deutsche Bank building at 130 Liberty Street, where two firefighters died last Saturday, has apparently never done any work like it. Indeed, Galt does not seem to have done much of anything since it was incorporated in 1983.

Public and private records give no indication of how many employees it has, what its volume of business is or who its clients are. There are almost no accounts of any projects it has undertaken on any scale, apart from 130 Liberty Street. Court records are largely silent. Some leading construction executives in the city say they have never even heard of it.

That may not be as surprising as it seems. John Galt, it appears, is not much more than a corporate entity meant to accommodate the people and companies actually doing the demolition job at the emotionally charged and environmentally hazardous site at the edge of ground zero.

Even while she’s in her fucking grave, her goddammed fuck-you-all philosophy lives on to kill more people.

Ayn Rand is in hell.

And she has to pay rent!


Blog Notes: WordPress Is Being A Right Bastard Today

It ate text in a prior post.

Now it just ate two posts!

Goddammit.

I plan on leaving the PC early today. Now I have an incentive to do so much earlier!

Police: Boss kills workers who asked for raise

I wonder how many bastards in pinstripes have read that and ha-ha joked, “Do you think we can do that in our company?”

Ha fucking ha.


Ted Nugent Knows The Value Of Our Leaders

Ted Nugent Goes Off On Obama And Hillary!

What a bullshit subhead. He isn’t threatening them at all. He’s showing the kind of contempt for our politicians that anyone with a brain has.

Really, if you think Obama or Hillary or anyone else in the campaign is the answer, you’re asking the wrong fucking questions!

Engadget Snags The Attention Of Autistic Palm, Inc.

August 24, 2007

Engadget published Dear Palm: It’s time for an intervention

Basically, it’s nothing new.

Allegedly, Ed Colligan replied on the Palm Blog.

My post on the Palm Blog (let’s see if it’s ever made public!):

Just a few questions for Ed:

1) Are you insane?

2) Are you that out of touch with reality?

What Engadget has put in one post has been said for YEARS over and over again at Palm Infocenter — which used to be *the* sites for PalmOS enthusiasts. As Fake Steve Jobs might say, Have You Heard Of It?

JKOnTheRun has a great reaction to you:

>>>That statement sums up Palm’s problem in a single sentence. You see, Mr. Colligan, the rest of the industry began to fight at least seven years ago. You’d better train awfully hard for this fight.

Palm has a sad new marketing campaign that is blanketing New York City: It’s A Palm Thing.

What is particularly hilarious about this campaign is its history, which is apparently something Palm doesn’t know. Their slogan is based on the saying that was coined in the 1980s: “It’s a black thing. You wouldn’t understand it.”

So, if it’s a Palm thing, I guess we won’t understand it.

That would be par for the course. No one has understood Palm for years and years and years.
