My Pillow Guy Is Heading For A Breakdown
Late night talk show hosts have been having a lot of fun ridiculing the off his rocker pillow magnate Mike Lindell. He’s an easy target and worthy of ridicule for his conspiracy mongering that the 2020 Presidential Election was stolen by the Chinese using the Dominion voting systems and probably alien technology or some other wacky QAnon nonsense.
Of the more than 150 million votes cast for president, I think Lindell believes that Fearless Loser really got 149 million of them. Mike would probably sleep even more soundly with the Orange Conman installed as king than he does on one of his My Pillows. Long live the king!
At his recent Cyber Symposium, Mike said he would reveal the “evidence” of the stolen election. The event just revealed that Mike is nuttier than kumquat. And, I think he is close to a mental breakdown. I don’t think the My Pillow Guy is going to end well.
Waitaminute… You’re Superman!
The other morning I bumped into a neighbor of mine. We were both masked up, but were able to recognize each other almost immediately.
It was then that I realized there is no way people wouldn’t recognize that Clark Kent as Superman. No way a pair of glasses and combed back hair would be enough to fool anyone. This revelation has made me question everything I’d always accepted about comic books.
Well, actually it hasn’t, but it did send me on a long examination of secret identities and disguises in comic books. More than just ones facial features would need to be disguised. There’s body shape, posture, movements, the voice, and speech patterns that could all give away the secret identity.
Invisible Girl, You Are A Woman Now
In 1961, the world was changed forever when the newly christened Marvel Comics introduced the superhero group The Fantastic Four. The world met Mr. Fantastic (Reed Richards), the Thing (Ben Grimm), the Human Torch (Johnny Storm), and the Invisible Girl (Sue Storm).
Sue Storm battled along side her team mates against the likes of Magneto, the Mole Man, Galactus, and Dr. Doom. She helped save the world countless times. She married Reed, had a child, and had a heartbreaking miscarriage of her second pregnany. She faced all those hardships and challenges and still she was called the Invisible Girl.
In 1985, artist/writer John Byrne decided it was time to make Sue a woman. First, she had to go through some horrible psychological manipulation at the hands of Hate-Monger and Psycho-Man. She triumphed and declared she was no longer the Invisible Girl. From that day, 24 years after she was first published, forth she would be known as the Invisible Woman!
You go, girl! Er, um… I mean woman!
John Byrne Is An Atheist And Didn’t Get Prayed Away
Unless God is taking His time ridding the world of atheists, it appears the Facebook promoted Global Prayer to End Atheism didn’t work. I’m still here and still don’t believe in invisible sky deities.
And it appears John Byrne, the man who made the Invisible Girl a woman (he also gave her a horrible mullet), also hasn’t disappeared and, I assume, is still an atheist.
A Dimland Radio Pedantic Moment: They Ain’t Bottomless
Try as I might, I couldn’t find the ad or an image from it to post here. Was it a fever dream? I’m sure I saw it on the YouTube. It was an ad that played just before what I wanted to watch. (I hate the ads, but I ain’t paying for YouTube!) So, I don’t have a screen capture or a link for you. You’ll just have to ask my word for it.
The ad is for Red Robin restaurants’ bottomless steak fries offer. The ad is picking up on the whole working from home and using Zoom for meetings, which allows for business up top/home casual down bottom attire. And the ad was suggested the two people in their ad were bottomless.
Except one was wearing basketball shorts and the other yoga pants. That ain’t bottomless! You want to see bottomless? Check out Julianne Moore in Robert Altman’s Short Cuts. (Warning! This link is not safe for work. There is nudity.) That’s bottomless!
Cool Thing: More YouTube Reaction Videos
I enjoy watching people discover the music I like. (What do I care if someone likes a song I don’t?)
There is one thing about these reaction videos, other than the possibility the YouTuber is pretending they don’t know the songs: I have yet to see a negative reaction. There might be a “I liked it, but I wasn’t blown away” reaction, but never a “that sucked” reaction. There might some out there. I just haven’t found them yet.
Here are three reactioners worth checking out:
Andy & Alex: The out of rhythm bobble headers who have come closest to not liking a song, but still gave it a C grade.
Jay & Amber: A couple who really enjoy hearing new stuff.
Call Me Caroline: Caroline is a singer from Australia and she is doing a reaction series listening to The Beatles. She is listening to each of their albums in order of release. She admits she knows some of the songs, but there is plenty she hasn’t heard. She is delightful to watch react.
