So long, BSG.....

One of TV's best science-fiction series ever, Battlestar Galactica, signed off last night in an action-packed, emotional and ultimately satisfying series finale. Never has a futuristic show been so timely. The show's creators molded a cheesy 1970's flop network series into a drama-heavy, existential sci-fi masterwork for our grim post-9/11, Bush-presidency era (and helmed by a fellow latino, Edward James Olmos, no less).

If you have never watched the show just take a look at the trailer below, it should do the trick of pulling you in. I highly recommend getting the DVD's on Netflix, starting with the 2003 miniseries and working your way through all 4 seasons, well, you can skip the 3rd, it was moral-relativist in the worst. If you have seen the series, check out my personal grades for each season and my Top 5 episodes below the trailer.


Miniseries: A+
Season 1: B
Season 2: A
Season 3: D
Season 4: B


1) Scar
2) Blood on the Scales
3) Unfinished Business
4) Sometimes a Great Notion
5) Sacrifice

Thank you, BSG.  I sure as frak am gonna miss you!

My Final Four picks

UNC, Louisville, Memphis and Villanova. Now I'm assuming Ty Lawson is healthy so I'm going with North Carolina defeating Memphis in the title game and that hot hunk of white meat Tyler Hansbrough going out a champ.

Aztecs wuz robbed!

ARRRRGGGGHHHH! I am boycotting the NCAA Men's College Basketball Tournament this year because my beloved alma mater San Diego State Aztecs (23-9) were completely fucked over by the big fat greedy major-conference fetishists on the tournament selection committee:

SDSU's RPI was the highest among those teams omitted from the field. It also finished one game out of first place during the regular season and reached the tournament championship game of a conference ranked No. 7 in the country.

I am so fucking furious! Only 4 out of the 34 at-large bids went to non-major conference schools, and 2 of those went to teams who came under the 20-win threshold! This is an outrage all-around, fuck the NCAA and it's bullshit tourney!

That said, I'll be posting my Final Four picks soon. Oh hell, not even this travesty can advert me from the excitement that is March Madness. But I'll be pissed off and drugged up the whole time.... which is pretty much how every day is for me now that I think about it. So let this posting be my form of protest! There, take that NCAA!

DruggyBear goes to work

Yes, you read that correctly, your humble DruggyBear is starting a new job on Monday, working for the government. How lucky am I to find any job during this horrible recession? However trust me when I say it's a job where I'll need to be as drugged up as possible! So, in addition to being too busy to post most days, I'm gonna have to protect my anonymity more than ever, well, at least till the job is finished in about 3 months, it's seasonal. Consequentially, expect far fewer and more vague posts, and damn if that doesn't fucking suck, I just started this blog last month!

Well, I hope you guys still check my blog regularly, as there is no shortage of drama in my life to report and certainly no shortage of opinions in this thick skull of mine to rant about when I get the time and inspiration. So please stick around and thanks for reading!

Matthews v. Fleisher

Former Bush administration press secretary/pathological liar Ari Fleischer was on MSNBC's 'Hardball' yesterday to defend Bush's legacy, and well, it got pretty ugly with host Chris Matthews. They touched on President Obama's first 50 days in office, the Bush recession and most intriguingly the Bush record on keeping America safe. Fleischer was quick to slobber all over Bush's cock for the lack of a major terrorist attack in this country since the 9/11 attacks, yet was shocked, SHOCKED I SAY, when Matthews dared point out the fact that Bush pretty much blew off the Presidential Daily Briefing titled "Bin Laden determined to strike in U.S." he received 8/6/01, just about a month before Bin Laden did strike the U.S. Well, if Bush's stooges are gonna take credit for the lack of an attack since then aren't they also deserving of the blame FOR that apocalyptic day? I mean, the chatter from overseas had been off the charts that summer and that very PDB detailed such intel as:

FBI information since that time indicates patterns of suspicious activity in this country consistent with preparations for hijackings or other types of attacks, including recent surveillance of federal buildings in New York.


Bin Laden implied in U.S. television interviews in 1997 and 1998 that his followers would follow the example of World Trade Center bomber Ramzi Yousef and "bring the fighting to America."


Al Qaeda members -- including some who are U.S. citizens -- have resided in or traveled to the U.S. for years, and the group apparently maintains a support structure that could aid attacks.

So, it's pretty clear that former NSA Adviser/Sec. of State Condi Rice lied when she testified "I don't remember the al Qaeda cells as being something that we were told we needed to do something about" to the 9/11 commission in 2004. The administration knew full well of the threat and either didn't take it seriously, or worse, just ignored it altogether.

Either way, Ari Fleischer is full of shit.  He is the "shameful" one for lying to cover his failed administration's ass over the biggest intelligence failure since Pearl Harbor. Matthews is right, our country is far better off w/o these douchebags in office. At least now we have a far more competent administration to deal with not only the Al Qaeda terror threat but also the economic 9/11 we are now suffering through, also Bush's fault!

Why Bernie Madoff, not Rush Limbaugh, should be made the face of the G.O.P.

The simplest breakdown of America's 2 major political parties is this: The Republicans blame the poor for all our problems, while the Democrats blame the rich. When the poor are seen by the public-at-large as the culprits, the Repubs do well, like in 1994 when "welfare queens" got all the blame for our economic ills. Right now the Democrats are coming off of 2 straight electoral ass-whoopings and are enjoying a huge identification advantage over the G.O.P. Why? Well, George W. Bush for one. Also, there are now more poor people than rich people, and that super rich Ponzi-scheming bastard Bernie Madoff is Public Enemy #1.

Look, as long as that fat fuck Limbaugh is still breathing he'll be saying stupid shit, that's not news. So Operation Rushbo may be a success so far for President Obama, but as long as the face of this financial crisis is a super-rich crook like Madoff, the rich will be (rightly) blamed for this recession and the Democrats will be sitting pretty.

oh thank god! religions losing influence in the U.S.

The mind-fuck that is religion is losing influence in America, so says a nearly year-long study of 55,000 Americans. Some interesting findings:

"Fifteen percent of respondents said they had no religion, an increase from 14.2 percent in 2001 and 8.2 percent in 1990, according to the American Religious Identification Survey."

That is great, but that growth has slowed since that 6 point jump from 1990-2001. Pretty odd, considering that since that time we have had the Catholic Church pedophilia scandal and the 9/11 attacks, and if those haven't made you question the corruption and extremism borne out of religion nothing will. It's a sham, all of it! It also just gives people a handy excuse for their bigotry (hello, Prop. 8!).

"Catholics grew to about one-third of the adult population in California and Texas, and one-quarter of Floridians, largely due to Latino immigration, according to the research."

no surprise here. us latinos are a stubborn and superstitious bunch.

"And, since 1990, a slightly greater share of respondents — 1.2 percent — said they were part of new religious movements, including Scientology, Wicca and Santeria."

I had no idea Scientologists were so small a denomination. Are they all in Hollywood?

"The study found that the percentage of Americans who identified themselves as Muslim grew to 0.6 percent of the population, while growth in Eastern religions such as Buddhism slightly slowed."

wtf? the super-violent religion that is Islam grew substantially while the super-peaceful religion that is Buddhism did not? if you need any more evidence we live in a fucked up, upside-down world....

"the study found that the numbers of Americans with no religion rose in every state."

God Bless America!

Jon & Kate= Over?

If you've ever seen TLC's "Jon & Kate plus Eight" you've seen poor Jon Gosselin having to deal w/ 8 kids plus his soul-sucking shrew of a wife, Kate. Well now comes word that Jon is stepping out, and all I can say is GO FOR IT JON! Don't let that bitch grind you down anymore than she already has! Cheat! Cheat! Cheat like you've never cheated before! Now I normally don't approve of cheating, seeing how I've been cheated on (long story) though I've also been a cheatee (longer story, err, stories), but that's neither here nor there, just take a look at Kate in action in one of many examples and you'll understand why I'm on Team Jon here (oh and Jon if you are on the d.l., email me!):

Obama Cabinet Least Valuable Player: Tim Geithner

From his tax problems to the disastrous rollout of his "bank plan" to his keeping mum while the markets plummet back to 19fucking97 levels, it's clear that Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has lost whatever little confidence the public had in him from the start. Hell, even his predecessor Hank Paulson was a better communicator than this guy! President Obama, can you dump this douche already?

"oh please forgive me, Massa Limbaugh!"

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele says he has reached out to Rush Limbaugh to tell him he meant no offense when he referred to the popular conservative radio host as an “entertainer” whose show can be “incendiary.”

“My intent was not to go after Rush – I have enormous respect for Rush Limbaugh,” Steele said in a telephone interview. “I was maybe a little bit inarticulate. … There was no attempt on my part to diminish his voice or his leadership.”

Isn't this fun? I love seeing the racists, misogynists, homophobes and creationists that make up the base of the G.O.P. purge the party of anyone who isn't a fellow portly, caucasian, heterosexual male who has sex with his wife twice a year (if he's lucky). In other words, the party has no room for anyone other than Rush and his minions, which is great, seeing how Rush's popularity is approaching O.J. levels. The G.O.P. suicide spiral is full speed ahead!

good luck getting laid in college talking like this, kid.....

13 year-old wonder-boy author Jonathan Krohn spoke at the 2009 Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday and received a standing ovation from the chubby, balding and pale crowd of Republicans. You know your party has it bad when your most eloquent voice hasn't even finished puberty yet! Oh well, at least he can't vote for 5 more years, and by then he may be the only 18-year-old Republican in the country. Enjoy your time out in the wilderness, G.O.P., couldn't happen to a better bunch of bigots!
