I Wish I Had Better News… (Stuck for now, new posts below)

It pains my heart, hurts me to the very core of my being to write this. This, which should have been a joyous update to our “Christmas in June” project. But at least I can tell you all what has been going on. The whole “plot”, which those of you who wrote to ask already

And a Prayer Request For One of Our Oldest Sisters of the Rott, Beth

Also known among the Old Guard as our very old friend Delftsman’s significant other. A wonderful woman who was just admitted with mini-clots and abscesses in her brain. To call finding that sort of thing on your CT scary would be an understatement so gross that even I won’t use it. So if you have

Christmas in June? (UPDATE and Bumped, New Posts Below)

OK, this is going to be the strangest and most likely least convincing sales pitch I’ve ever delivered for a collection because, well, you’ll see… One of our esteemed LCs came up with something that would make for a great surprise for another one of our very esteemed LCs and I’m all in, so that’s

Admin Notice

I have found over the last few weeks that apparently Akismet, the program that keeps our comment threads from being endless penis enlargement ads, has gone into overdrive and started “spam-labeling” bunches of very legitimate comments. Most notably comments from Francis Porretto, but others of our community have been hit equally hard. So kindly, as

We’ve Got Proof: Australia IS Bloody Well Out to Kill Ya!

His Imperial Majesty has a lot of rules of thumbs for visiting other countries and even more handy dandy flash card reminders of what each country is like. Such as “when in Germany, don’t mention the war”, “France has a million kinds of cheese, none of which are edible by humans”, “don’t ever let a

A Brother In Need

His Imperial Majesty is sad to announce that our brother Jackboot has joined the ranks of those who has been hit by the wonders of living in this Golden Age of Obamatopia too, as in “having his financial rug pulled out from under him.” I’m even more sad to announce that I didn’t learn of

Thanks Again, All of You, For Being You

I know, we don’t need any more bad news, but these aren’t really all bad. Well, they are, but they’re also good as they further prove, as if anybody needed proof, what great people you Rotties are. I just want to humbly thank those of you who, in spite of money truly being too tight

Reinforcements Have Arrived!

And there was much rejoicing in the Empire, as the Imperial Staff expanded further. It is His Imperial Majesty’s distinct pleasure to welcome LC CiSSnarl5.7 to the ranks of the Imperial Staff. First of all because we could surely use the help with His Imperial Majesty’s muse being temporarily incapacitated, but even more so because

No, I’m Not Dead Yet

“I feel better” /montypython Actually, I do. It’s just the post-bug weariness/fatigue/notgiveashit syndrome. I’m very sorry that I’ve been away from the keyboard for so long and I appreciate both the efforts of the Imperial Staff and the loyalty of you fine LCs and other good sorts. Now, back to trying to get caught up,

Oh, And An Inside Baseball Aside

If you include that Google “Like-alike” button on your site, could you please do yourself and your readers the favor of checking it out in various browsers? Because it’s really bloody annoying to have text you really want to read blocked out by that bloody button thanks to its preference for inserting itself wherever it

This Is It, People

And we’ll let our good friend Bill Whittle explain it (h/t Bill Quick): Our personal motives are closely aligned with Bill’s, with the addition of us hating and despising the BlightBringer, the Butcher of Benghazi so much that if Lucifer himself ran against him, we’d vote for Lucifer just to get the trash thrown out.

Stay Safe!

As Hurricane Sandy gets ready to make landfall, we want to offer our prayers to all of those in harm’s way, whoever you might be. Seek higher ground, preferably out of the danger zone entirely, don’t be idiots and think you can “ride this one out” (there are no merit badges for terminal stupidity), hunker

Send Lawyers, Guns and Money

Well, not the first two actually, at least not as far as I know. I really hate doing this, particularly since I haven’t really been earning my keep around here lately, but it looks like things in the Empire have reached the point where I have to have a fundraiser in order to keep the

Anybody Looking For a New Used Car?

Because if you are, then we’ve got news for you. Not ours, we’re not letting go of that one until it explodes, but we were finally able to check in on Roguetek, who is hanging in there well in spite of everything, and we learned that he’s got a car sitting around that he needs

Gratuitous Book Plug, Get it Before Your Friends!

It’s not all that often that His Imperial Majesty throws out whole-heartedly endorsements of literature, because we’re a picky old bastard (and arrogant too), so we really have to be primed to go that far. Of course “not often” does imply that exceptions exist, and this is one such exception. When we run across a
