For fans of Middle-Earth and The Lord of the Rings trilogy, today marks Hobbit Day! From Days of the Year:

September 22nd is the Birthday of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins, two characters from J.R.R. Tolkien’s popular Middle Earth Cycle books (The Hobbit and Lord Of The Rings respectively) in which Hobbits, typically between two and four feet tall and nothing like your usual ‘hero’, accomplish great feats and amazing acts of courage. It is in honour of these creatures and those acts that the day is celebrated with events not unlike the birthday party described in the beginning of “The Fellowship of the Ring”.

In the United States Hobbit Day has gained some measure of legal dignity due to the elected officials who support the day and the goals of the American Tolkien Society.”

5 On Friday: Songs Dedicated to Me!

This “Five Friday Favourites” consists of songs which have been dedicated to yours truly, in past relationships that I was in. Knowing that one inspires an excellent song from another is always a nice feeling, even if the relationship doesn’t last. Keep the good and leave the bad, I say!

Mabon Blessings!

The Wheel of the Year turns ever onward; the cycle of the seasons continues. Summer gives way to Fall – ’tis the Autumnal Equinox. Mabon blessings…Blessed be!

Full Frontal Thursday: Freedom(ish) of Speech!

In this installment of ‘Full Frontal Thursday,’ Sam talks about the hypocrisy of people who demand freedom of speech – unless an ESPN reporter offends their delicate, fragile little fee-fees by calling the Drumpf the racist asshole that he is!

The Drupf’s token Black mouthpiece, Omarosa Manigault, also gets an “honourable” mention. She is proof that there are a good number of Black people out there in the world, both male and female, who are invested in throwing other Black people under the bus in order to earn praise and favour from the colonialists that they cling to.

United Nations International Day of Peace

Injustice…

…comes in many forms. The most obvious form is what occurred last Friday, when the cop who murdered Anthony Lamar Smith in 2011 was acquitted of the crime. Jason Stockley shot and killed Mr. Smith with an AK-47, then tried to plant phony evidence justifying the murder. He gets off scot-free, thanks to the new “justice” department under klansman Jefferson Beauregard Sessions.

Just yesterday, a racist scumbag was arrested in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, after murdering two Black men over a two-day period last week. Ken Gleason, 23, shot Bruce Cofield, 59, and Donald Smart, 49. From BBC News:

“A suspect has been arrested in the US state of Louisiana for the murders of two black men, which authorities said were “racially motivated”. Baton Rouge police have also charged Kenneth Gleason with attempted murder after shots were fired at an African-American family’s home.

Investigators say they discovered the 23-year-old’s DNA on pistol shell-casings found at the crime scenes. A lawyer for Mr Gleason, who is white, said his client denies the charges. During a search of the suspect’s home over the weekend, authorities discovered a speech by Adolf Hitler, as well as cannabis and human growth hormone, US media report.

Bruce Cofield, 59, and Donald Smart, 49, were both shot in separate incidents while walking on the streets of the Louisiana state capital last week. Mr Cofield was homeless, and Mr Smart had been walking to his job as a dishwasher at a cafe popular with Louisiana State University students.

Authorities believe the two victims were first shot from a car before the attacker walked over and continued firing at them as they lay on the ground. The attacks happened two days apart, and police say they believe neither man had any previous interaction with Mr Gleason. Police also believe Mr Gleason may have opened fire on the home of a black family in his neighbourhood, where he lives with his parents. Nobody was injured in that attack.

Baton Rouge Interim Police Chief Jonny Dunnam said on Tuesday: “I feel confident this killer probably would have killed again, and could have potentially created a tear in the fabric that holds this community together.” Mr Gleason had just posted bail for unrelated theft charges when he was arrested for the killings. He has been booked on two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated criminal damage to property and illegal use of weapon, according to the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office.”

23 years old, and still living with his parents? Typical white-trash loser being enabled by his inbred, white-trash parents. Most likely doing nothing but posting self-righteous bullshit on Facebook and Twitter, while ignoring the festering hatred their words and deeds fertilized. If the narrative follows true to form, the usual empty platitudes of that asshole’s family and friends will be spouted: “We had absolutely no idea…” “He wasn’t raised that way…” “There was no indication that he would do something like this…”

Bullshit. Those empty words ring hollow, because they are complete and utter bullshit. See, injustice also takes a sinister and covert aspect when people actively, and willingly, ignore glaring red flags – especially when those flags are being waved by their own family members or friends. They tune out the people who are trying to say, “Hey – something isn’t right, there.” They shut us out and tell us, “Shut up! You have no clue what you’re talking about! YOU’RE JUST BEING JUDGEMENTAL!!!” Those people then go on and on, justifying the unjustifiable, excusing the inexcusable, and defending the indefensible. Then they act all shocked and surprised when a horror such as this occurs.

Pathetic.

The TARDIS has been crowned Empress!

Time for some much-needed, well-earned rest and relaxation.

Admiring a newly acquired statue…

Titanborn sings and plays a soft serenade for his lady love.

The empress, resplendent in her regalia!

Five Songs on a Saturday!

Yesterday was quite busy and very productive, which made for a long day! Woke up at 0530 to get some things done; so much to do that we didn’t get home until 2310, then fell into bed and was asleep before my head hit the pillow.

I’m well-rested and refreshed this morning, and have a fun gaming event to participate in and broadcast. The show starts at high noon PDT, so click on the link here to watch the sewer-delving fun!

Time for a bit of music! Since I missed my ‘Five on Friday’ post, I offer up five of my favourite songs I listen to whilst gaming. Five songs from quite an extensive list! I can do many Friday posts about my personal faves in gaming music from time to time. That’s a good thing.

Full Frontal Thursday: Tuggin’ Ted, DACA, and…WTF?!?

Samantha Bee returns and talks about the one-two punches of Harvey and Irma, as well as how the dreams of DACA recipients are becoming a huge, collective nightmare.

Also, I think she ate too much Wonder bread and Kraft singles during her break, because she’s taken a remarkably soft tone about hate-mongers and how they just need to be understood. Hug a nazi? Yeah…sure. I’ll hug one of those fetid heaps of human waste the same way they want to hug me. With a rope. From a tree. Complete with the entry and exit holes from a large caliber hand-cannon ventilating the cranial cavity.

She is funny and has great writers, but her judgement skills aren’t the greatest. Remember her backing of Gary Johnson? Yeah…
