Hail the Rainbow Illuminati!

I agree The Great Snatch, as depicted by Spire Comics with the first commenter in this post by Ed Brayton at Dispatches from the Culture Wars: can we please just get the fucking Rapture over with already, so that we can rid ourselves of these subliterate cretins who seem to want to Love the rest of us to death? Failing that, can we just buy all of them first-class tickets to one of the places in the Middle East that they hunger so badly to blow up?

This is a good-news/bad-news kind of story: it's good because it shows idiocy and homophobia given the trouncing that it so richly deserves, but it's bad the fact that it took place at all shows that this country persists in treating lunatics seriously when in a just world, they should be laughed at.

Um. Pornography is in focus?

A twist on an old joke has cropped up around CineKink, surfacing more frequently around festival submission time: "What's the difference between art and pornography?" "Pornography arrives with its 2257 compliance properly identified." Bah dump bump. expansion on some of the topics we discussed during our recent SXSW panel, The Porn Police: Know the Rules, an article by attorney Alan Levy has just been published in The Yale Law Journal. First tracing the history of federal 2257 record-keeping regulations and its recent judicial back-and-forths, the article then goes into the implications that they present to all filmmakers, including those working with actual and with simulated depictions of sexual conduct.

God's Latest Hissy Fit

I was waiting for a clearer, sharper intellect than my own to come along and make clear the reasons for the holocaust that's consuming Southern California. First, the hard-hitting journalists told me that it was all a plot by Al Qaeda. Fair enough; that seemed plausible at first, but I couldn't help noticing the lack of smug declarations of responsibility from Osama Bin-Laden. But then, I got it. Who's really responsible for all the bad stuff that happens to this country?


Or, as former-homo-current-closet-case-fundamentalist James Hartline puts it:

They shook their fists at God and said, “We don't care what God says, we will issue our legal brief to support gay marriage in San Diego!” Then Mayor Jerry Sanders mocked the Christian vote and signed off on this rebellious legal document to support same-sex marriage.
