    • Bannon Out
      So, this is Steve Bannon’s last day at the White House. I wrote that this would be a courtier’s White House, with a lot of knife fights, and who won them determining a lot of policy. Bannon’s a white nationalist, and scum, of course, but he’s also the only senior advisor who wants to, say, […]

For every boy who dreamed of pointe shoes

Here’s a non-traditional version of the Nutcracker choreographed by Mark Morris called The Hard Nut.

I love the whipped topping headdress and everyone seems to be enjoying themselves.

  1. It’s lovely to see them having fun breaking the convention. When I was in college I used dance classes to fulfill my physical education requirements. There was a young man who would have liked to dance en pointe like this.

    • They do pretty well out there. But I’ll bet those shoes don’t last more than one performance.

  2. Carrie Fisher died this morning. 😦

    ASCENDED MADOKA DAMN YOU 2016!!! 👿

  3. This is also off-topic. My in box had another request to sign a “thank you” to Obama. I’ve received a few of these and each is promptly deleted.

    Over the weeks since the election, I’ve felt that once the DNC decided on Obama as the nominee in 2008, it led to Hillary’s defeat in the Electoral College in 2016. That feeling has been because of who Obama is and his actions as president.

    Obama’s narcissism is about to be replaced by Trumpo’s.

    • We needed a Churchill against the increasingly fascist GOPeckerwoods.

      Wall Street and the Democratic Establishment gave us Barack Chamberlain Obama instead, because they thought Hillary would insist that Wall Street pay its share of the cleanup bill for the 2008 crash.

      Obama just never understood that some people are complete sociopathic @$$holes who can’t be reasoned with or compromised with–and if you think you made a deal with them, check your hands to be sure you still have all your fingers. 😡
