Listening to the 2 studio albums Ripper Owens did with Judas Priest. Not bad, actually.

Sounds more like Ride The Lightning / Master of Puppets Metallica than it does Priest (with a few exceptions).

But the two albums are at least as good as the worst album Halford did with Priest (Turbo, anyone?)...

How the FUCK do you "suspend" someone from a show while it's not being filmed?



A&E has lifted its suspension on "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson after less than two weeks.

The reality star was initially suspended for anti-gay remarks he made in a GQ profile that surfaced on Dec. 18.

"Don't be deceived," he said in the magazine's January issue. "Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers -- they won't inherit the kingdom of God. Don't deceive yourself. It's not right."

Last week, A&E stated that it was disappointed in Robertson and put him on hiatus. But in a statement to THR on Friday (Dec. 27), A&E said it was inviting him back. Because no filming took place during his suspension, Robertson will appear in all new episodes of the show.

Sunshine on his shoulders made John Denver happy. ME? Naked sefies texted to my cell phone.

Nothing brightens your day like that. What a great Friday.

Business Insider: "This Is Why Phil Robertson Is Wrong About Gays"

1) The love sure seems to be wrapped in a lot of hate

I got a lot of mail explaining to me that we are all fallen and homosexuality is just one sin among many.

I also got a lot of emails calling me a faggot, urging me to "have fun burning in hell", saying gays should "buy an island and get out of our faces," etc.

If Christian messages against homosexual activity come out of love, how is it that they ended up producing so much hate?

Salon: Fox News’ 5 worst moments of 2013

Fox News’ 5 worst moments of 2013
It was another banner year for Rupert Murdoch's propaganda shop. Here are the most cringeworthy moments

Along with death and taxes, Fox News is one of the few things we can depend on in this world. Just as the sun rises and sets, it’s a given that, over the course of 12 months, many ridiculous, offensive, stupid and bewildering things will be said by persons seated in front of a Fox News studio camera. Whether it’s from the hosts, guests or mere contributors, you can be assured that someone is going to say something that was better left unsaid.

With that in mind, join us as we go through some of the lowest lows from Fox News, moments to remind us that when it comes to lizard-brained inanity, no one holds a candle to the guys and gals at Fox.

5. Bill O’Reilly says Asians aren’t liberals because they’re “industrious and hard-working.”

4. Megyn Kelly insists Santa Claus is white.

So I have moved to a "semi dry" town...

...you can drink hard liquor in BARS, but you can only purchase wine and beer in stores. I have to drive to the next town if I want a bottle of Jack?

Where's the first train back to Pahrump?



Jang Song-thaek's (Kim Jong Un's uncle) Aides Executed With Antiaircraft Machine Guns

Jang Song-thaek's Aides Executed With Antiaircraft Machine Guns: Report

The Huffington Post | By Alana Horowitz

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/12/24/jang-song-thaek-execution-kim-jong-un-north-korea-_n_4498996.html

The New York Times reports that the Jang's death was the end result of a brutal gun battle between Jang supporters and those of the regime over who controlled key land.

As the Times tells it, Kim's forces were ordered to take back control over important fishing grounds that Jang had previously seized, but Jang wouldn't give it up without a fight. The battle ended in the death of many of Kim's soldiers. Kim was furious and ordered that Jang's top aides be executed.

According to the Times, the two men were killed with antiaircraft machine guns rather than regular guns or rifles.

Yomiuri Shimbun, a Japanese newspaper, reported that Kim was “very drunk” when he ordered the death of Jang's men.

Babbling "Likely White House contender" Bobby Jindal...this Miley and Duck shit is "MESSED UP!"

In embrace of ‘Duck Dynasty’ star, 2016 hopefuls make bid for evangelicals

http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/in-embrace-of-duck-dynasty-star-2016-hopefuls-make-bid-for-evangelicals/2013/12/19/f42e464a-68db-11e3-a0b9-249bbb34602c_story.html



Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R), a likely White House contender whose state is home to the show about a family that runs a duck-hunting gear enterprise, called Robertson and his family “great citizens.”

“The politically correct crowd is tolerant of all viewpoints, except those they disagree with,” Jindal said in a statement prominently displayed on his official Web site, adding: “I remember when TV networks believed in the First Amendment.”


Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), another probable 2016 candidate, chimed in on Facebook, writing: “If you believe in free speech or religious liberty, you should be deeply dismayed over the treatment of Phil Robertson.” And 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin wrote in a Facebook post that “those ‘intolerants’ hatin’ and taking on the Duck Dynasty patriarch for voicing his personal opinion are taking on all of us.”

Their embrace of Robertson — who in an interview with GQ described “homosexual behavior” as sinful and compared it to bestiality and infidelity — underscored how gay rights remain a potent political issue for many religious voters on the right.

Gov. Jindal on Phil Robertson Suspension: I Remember When TV Networks Believed in 1st Amendment

BATON ROUGE – Governor Bobby Jindal issued a statement this morning following the news of Phil Robertson being suspended by A&E from the show Duck Dynasty.

Governor Jindal said, “Phil Robertson and his family are great citizens of the State of Louisiana. The politically correct crowd is tolerant of all viewpoints, except those they disagree with. I don’t agree with quite a bit of stuff I read in magazine interviews or see on TV. In fact, come to think of it, I find a good bit of it offensive. But I also acknowledge that this is a free country and everyone is entitled to express their views. In fact, I remember when TV networks believed in the First Amendment. It is a messed up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended "

Matt Taibbi, Rolling Stone: "Sarah Palin's Impressively Incoherent 'Duck Dynasty' Comments"

Sarah Palin's Impressively Incoherent 'Duck Dynasty' Comments

Sarah Palin, ably staying in character in her new role as a professional media ambulance-chaser, was one of the first to rush to Robertson's defense. She posted a photo of herself with the Robertsons and tweeted the following:

Free speech is endangered species; those "intolerants" hatin' & taking on Duck Dynasty patriarch for voicing personal opinion take on us all

Conservatives have always had trouble grasping the difference between public censorship and private enterprise. With a few exceptions, like whistleblower laws and National Labor Relations Board protections against being fired for off-site discussions about work conditions (exceptions that, in almost every case, conservatives bitterly opposed), there is no legal or constitutional right to free speech on private property.

You can be fired for calling your boss a dick, and you can just as easily be let go by a profit-seeking media company for imperiling its relationship with advertisers. And incidentally, this is the way true conservatives, and especially true hardcore speech advocates, have always wanted it.

CROSS-POSTED TO LBN: Henry Rollins doesn't give a shit about Miley Cyrus! (Rolling Stone)

Henry Rollins Does Not Enjoy the Music We Cover in Rolling Stone
Always outspoken icon praises Marnie Stern and Ty Segall, says he's never heard Daft Punk

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/henry-rollins-does-not-enjoy-the-music-we-cover-in-rolling-stone-20131219



Henry Rollins recently wrapped his first major film role, where he plays a cannibal trying to find his way. But he's been finding himself in many different mediums this year, hosting his radio show on KCRW and the History Channel's 10 Things You Don't Know About and releasing books. Rolling Stone spoke with the always outspoken and charismatic Rollins about 2013's biggest artists (which he mostly ignored).

You know what, you will take this any way you will. That to me is like Rolling Stone music. It's the shit that's in your magazine. And it's like, that world. . . I'm so glad that you all have found your people, but that world is so alienating to me. Anything that gets on the Grammys or the American Music Awards. . . like, was Miley Cyrus on the cover of your magazine? Yeah, see, I like real music. John Coltrane's my favorite musician, what am I doing reading Rolling Stone? You know what I mean?

You don't give a shit about her.

Well, I don't. She's part of that bigger world of music I was just talking about. All of it to me is like, long may it wave, I don't have anything against anyone doing their thing, but it's just not for me. And Robin Thicke, is that the guy? I have no idea what he sounds like. I've never heard Kelly Clarkson, I just, I live in a different musical world.
