Women

How some of them ruin everything for women.

Obviously, an unwelcome stolen kiss is rude. But “rapey”? Really?

Just another example of how the seventies feminists went more than a bridge too far.

And no, I’m not going to do my standard spiel about how Valentine’s Day is part of the war on men, but Jim Geraghty has some good thoughts.

But I will repeat that I always laugh when I hear about women wanting to know what men want on Valentine’s Day. Just show up. We’re not that hard to please. Especially for those of us who don’t have women.

And it’s not that long until Steak and a BJ Day (though I have to confess that when it comes to oral s3x, I think it’s far better to give than to receive, and I have no interest in watching fel**tio in pr0n).

    Jim Geraghty suggests moving Valentine’s Day into the spring sometime. I’m not sure where, though–March and April potentially have Easter and Spring Break (that’s a holiday, isn’t it?), and May has the 8th of May and Mother’s Day. June has Father’s Day and anyway is already summer.

    I just met a lovely lady a few weeks ago and I was fretting on what to get her for Valentine’s. Then she told me she was raised a Jehovah’s Witness and never celebrated the holidays growing up. So, the only thing I got her was a “Happy Valentines day” today but she was like, “eh whatever”. Am I weird to think that is just so awesome? I’m not a big gift giver but when I see an inspirational gift for someone I like to just buy and give it to them; No holiday, no special occasion needed. Just something to show I was thinking about them. I don’t need a day on the calendar to make me do it.

    This is as good a place as any to link 10,000 Maniacs’ brand new video “I Don’t Love You Too”.

    They crowdsourced the production of their new album “Music From the Motion Picture” through PledgeMusic. I received my autographed copy today. Some of the songs are as good as anything they’ve ever done. The official release date is February 26.

      I forgot to mention that the people who appeared in the video were those fans who donated a certain amount of money. They sent in their photos and got animated.

        I didn’t know they were still around. Is that Natalie singing? It sounds a lot like her. Always hated her politics, but what a voice.

    Here in St. Louis, they had some flash mob that danced to protest violence against women on the 14th. In the lobby of some history museum.

    I briefly considered leaving some snarky comment on the local news website that supported it, but realized asking questions would not be appreciated.

    Like: What does dancing do to curb violence? or: If it does somehow curb violence, then why do it in such an insular location?

      …and what if you take your special person to the museum, you show up with violins, the dancers have drums and a saxophone, one of you likes flash mobs with reeds, the other one doesn’t like drums, there’s an argument, candy gets pitched, flowers shredded, heated words are bandied, punches are thrown…they’ve defeated their own efforts by causing violence.

      That’s why I don’t go to museums, to much sax and violins.

        It’s the strangest thing–I couldn’t explain why, but I am unable, as I write this, to keep a scene in Catch-22 from replaying in my head, over and over.

        It’s the one with General Dreedle’s WAC, the pre-mission briefing. General Dreedle says, at one point, “Take this man out and shoot him.”

        I don’t know why I’m thinking about that now.
