Peter Jackson makes fatal error on The Hobbit Movie premiere

I don’t know what he was thinking but the movie comes out two days after the world ends. Millions around the world are going to be absolutely destroyed by the fact that they are going to miss the first installment of The Hobbit, An Unexpected Journey.

Come to think of it, I haven’t heard this logistical nightmare discussed at all by Corey Olsen, The Tolkien Professor. It seems like a rather significant oversight.

This really messes with my events calendar.

  1. Completely off topic, but I must say I hate Frank (Pancho) Bruni with a white, hot passion.

  2. Haven’t you heard– the Mayans were dyslexic– it’s really Dec 21.

  3. Ever notice how much Gollum looks like Lloyd Blankfein?

  4. Big PhRMA in the news:

    Glennzilla skewers ’em in today’s column about Liz Fowler and the revolving door.

  5. I don’t mean to pry, RD, but are you okay?
    Are you taking a few well deserved days/weeks off?

    • Yes, Kim are you OK? I hoped to get you going with the Greenwald mention. Good wishes.

      • Glad you posted about Brubeck RD. more PhARMA Pholks in th news

        Peterson acolyte assaults rational being at DC hotel conclave | Corrente

        WASHINGTON — A conservative scholar at the Heritage Foundation, Edmund F. Haislmaier, attacked a nonprofit employee Tuesday morning in a hotel where both men were attending an event sponsored by the Campaign to Fix the Debt.

        Haislmaier is a Senior Research Fellow [ha ha ha] in Health Policy Studies at the conservative [stink] tank…Prior to joining Heritage, Haislmaier was an executive at pharmaceutical giant Pfizer and a health care industry consultant.

        And, apparently, as we would expect, a humongous pustulating asshole with a nasty temper and an inability to control himself in public. Yep, that’s Heritage!

        Actually, though, to take the point Haislmaier raises seriously:

        There really are people who believe that “fixing” the debt is necessary to make the world a better place for their children. I had a talk with a permaculturalist who was concerned that by living too long, she was taking resources from her children. One reason Peterson’s propaganda is so insidious is that it plays on people’s best impulses, and even manages to reframe austerity as a form of altruism. Haislmaier could genuinely believe his own bullshit.
