I Must Share . . .

This is what happens when someone shares a writing prompt on Tumblr and magic takes place.

An old and homely grandmother accidentally summons a demon. She mistakes him for her gothic-phase teenage grandson and takes care of him. The demon decides to stay at his new home. . . .

Gods, if only I could write like that. Read it, no matter how much you hate Tumblr. It will make your morning.

A salient quote from "All The President's Men"

Deep Throat stamped his foot. 'A conspiracy like this...a conspiracy investigation...the rope has to tighten slowly around everyone's neck. You build convincingly from the outer edges in, you get ten times the evidence you need against the Hunts and the Liddys. They feel hopelessly finished - they may not talk right away, but the grip is on them. Then you move up and do the same thing at the next level.

All the President's Men, by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein

(falls out of chair laughing helplessly)

I can feel the democratic socialist vibrations filling my ass with warmth and then spilling out across my body, running down my arms and legs in a series of pleasant waves. Most importantly, I can feel the way that they massage my prostate deep within, causing my muscles to clench and release at the first hints of orgasm.

"Feel that burn!" Senator Sambers begins to command. "Feel that burn! Feel that fucking burn!"

"I feel it!" I scream in return. "This ass is for the people not just the wealthy elite!"

"Yes!" Bernie cries out enthusiastically.

The first named small fry is being hauled in

BREAKING: Imminent Trump/Russia Arrests? EDVA Courthouse Shut to Public

A little further investigating shows that a plea agreement hearing is scheduled for this coming Monday for a woman named Angelina Lazar. So who is Mrs. Lazar? Well, she just so happened to be a VIP guest at President Trump’s inauguration.

I doubt they're summoning her to ask questions about the floral arrangements. We shall see. . . .

An analysis of Broadstorm_Six's Tweetstorm

Yes, this morning I drank the Palmer Report koolaid and took a look at Broadsword_Six's Tweetstorms.

Two things stand out that might, in fact, be the gods' own truth:

1. Some things I need to stress & you need to take to heart and fully understand. We as a society are utterly dependent on instant gratification. What's beginning to happen is the exact opposite of that.

Totally believable. Remember the oft-reported remark that Watergate took eighteen months from the initial arrest of the burglars to Nixon's resignation. This is bigger, more serious, and involves a foreign government that has been our bitter rival and enemy (Russia). If indeed so many agencies, including foreign ones, are uniting to deal with this matter, don't expect it to be quick or simple.

2. They are purposely leaking info and making nuances in order to create stress and divide within the ranks of Team Trump. They want to invoke paranoia and discomfort. That's how you get people to flip and play for Team USA. . . . The right intel people are dropping leaks to the right reporters on the major networks. That's how these stories keep showing up. It's being done for a reason. They want the public to have some semblance of reason that all of this is being handled, and they invoking that fear, and paranoia in the Trump admin.

Now that is really interesting. First, of course, they are supposedly putting psychological pressure on Trump's associates. I'm not sure they are truly that organized and treating this as warfare, but I wouldn't rule it out. Second -- and this is the juicy part -- they are supposedly also managing public perceptions, giving us some hope that something, somewhere, will finally stop Trump and his droogs. If that's true, it's very revealing of the people behind the investigations -- likely a goodly chunk of the real PTB, or close to the fringes. They may be deeply concerned about the depth of public disgust, disillusionment and despair over the Republicans' flat refusal to move against their pet: possibly fearing immediate riots and other violence, possibly worried about how this is speeding up the long-term delegitimization of the federal government in the eyes of the country, who knows? If it's the latter, they're wiser than I gave them credit for.

3. There are others in the pipeline. Many others, in the teens. Anyone who's been a Fed will tell you we snatch the smallest of fishies first, flip them if we can & work up the chain.

It is entirely plausible to me that the first arrests may involve people we've never heard of, who are involved tangentially or just mooks who are very far down the chain.

The "small fry" don't have the money or power to get themselves out of the net, and they may not be important enough to their higher-ups to seem worth rescueing. Higher-ups may also think that they wouldn't dare talk. They would be obvious targets for turning.

There may be no mention that this is in any way related to Trump. It may not reach the news at all. It may appear for a while that nothing is happening.

4. Don't worry about war or nukes. The DOD is fully aware at the highest levels and will not carry out any illegal or irrational order he tries to give them. It's not how this works.

Oh please god let it be true let it be true let it be true . . .

5. There is also an investigation underway addressing the GOP as a party & has to do with campaing money & get ready.....The raid conducted at Strategic Campaign Group this week. It is a 3 pronged attack. All roads are leading to MONEY, Manafort, GOP leadership, Trump. The GOP will be going through a death rattle in the coming months.

Again: oh please god let it be true let it be true let it be true . . .

I just discovered the most amazing thing

Polari: the lost-and-found language of gay men (pdf warning)

British gay men used to have a near-language, cobbled together from multiple sources but heavily influenced by Italian. By the 1960s, it was nearly extinct. Only lately has a small movement of gays tried to revive and promote it – by, among other things, projecting words and sentences of Polari on a brick wall (to the puzzlement of younger gay passersby).

Here’s a minimovie done mostly in Polari:
