Rantings and tirades of a frustrated economist.
Louis C.K. and Bill Burr are two of my favorite stand up comedians right now. I was watching C.K.'s latest standup special for HBO yesterday and he made a very accurate, funny joke about divorce and how his life has been so much happier since. He can have enough time to be a father without having to spend so much of his life with his children! That was the gist of one the jokes.I am completely going to enjoy the decline now and forget anything about college for at least a few years if I can. Welding program, here I come! Thanks, Cap.
Gosh. Elams criticism was on target. What this means is that the mindless meatheads and the slimy bitches are just right for each other.Now I'm having a fantasy about rounding up all examples of both kinds and chaining them up together in a canyon so the rest of us can mind our own business for the first time ever, in human history.Bill Burrs statements were the harmless result of free association, so I give him a pass.Good linking, Cap.
What bothered me about that song, from the first time I heard it, was that it was a revenge fantasy for women. Listen to the lyrics, and you'll see that it wasn't about her finding her man cheating on her - it was about her IMAGINING that he was cheating on her. "He's probably doing this, or he's probably doing that." I had an ex-girlfriend stalk me for a FULL YEAR after we broke up, after a two year relationship. We broke up because she was always imagining me wanting to be with other women. She was jealous as hell, and if she even THOUGHT I was looking at another woman, she flipped out and made my life hell for at least a couple of days.That song was EXACTLY her. "I bet right now he's buying her some fruity drink because she can't shoot whiskey." Then she f*cks up his car, for what she IMAGINED he was doing.Both Burr and Elam missed the true spirit of that song.
