Still not at war yet, but it’s comin’ on quick. A quick look at the Internet shows a lot of blusterfucks trading between the US and North Korea, so, if we end up dropping the American equivalent of Tsar Bomba on the Sudan by sundown Sunday, we’ll be shooting about par.
Headed back to the Desert Redoubt in a bit to spend the weekend in utter, blissful desolation.
This is another short one, because I’ve been hassling with H1-B dot-not-feather subcontracting motherfuckers all the live-long day, and I’ve got 6 hours in a truck ahead of me.
Have a bitchin’ weekend, and a very happy Easter.

Coming to you live from the Casa De Huckleberry Cacti Bunker & Desert Redoubt, for no reason in particular.
So with another fake gas attack in Syria, and another real live missile strike into the heart of the Middle East, for whatever reason Trump turned on a dime, essentially dismissed the only voice of reason from the National Security Council, then lobbed $100 million in guided ordinance at $1000 worth of tarmac, FOR THE CHILDREN, and I am now more convinced than ever that there is in fact a shadow presidency run by some band of unaccountable globalist cunts, and for all of Trump’s 29-dimensional underwater blindfolded backgammon, events are unfolding right now exactly as they would’ve under Clinton, Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Reagan, Carter, Ford, Nixon, and Johnson. And they shot the last guy who didn’t play ball.
So I drink, here, way out in the desert, far from any worthwhile intercontinental ballistic missile target.
It’s been a horrible day, capping off a shitty week, bottoming out a lackluster month, punching the first 33.3 percent of 2017 right in the testicles 1000 times.
Have a good weekend, friends.
Onward, then, toward oblivion.

Another Friday, comin’ in hot and leavin’ room-temperature in a body bag.
Viva motherfuckin’ life, friends.
It’s been a bit of a week here and abroad, but since I hardly care about abroad, we’ll stick to proximity.
The weather has been absolutely incredible here the past couple of weeks, and I’ve been fortunate to spend a lot of it outdoors, whenever possible. In my head, I’m already in my hammock with a good book and a cooler of beers at my side, all just a few more hours away.
That really is the true folly of Southern California – for all they go on and on about how this is a desert and it’s all unnatural and blah da blah blah, the fact is there is hardly any better climate for growing a wide range of things here, especially citrus and apples. 100 years almost all of the Los Angeles Metropolitan area, and the hundreds of square miles surrounding it, were apple orchards and orange groves.
This seems a sensible and worthwhile use of the land.
Now it’s just a den of extreme iniquity, decay, sodomy, communism, and Guatemalans.
Sad.
Anyway.
I’m out for the weekend, and probably half-drunk already, so I’ll just call that victory and move on to next week.
For this week’s song selection, this is the first music video I ever saw that I actually liked.
Also, I think, the last music video I ever saw that I actually liked.
Get ‘em in and have a great weekend.

All out.
Enjoy the weekend.
I’m halfway to gone already.

Good Music Friday — Three Feet Of Mucus Edition

Posted in Good Music Friday by Huckleberry on March 17, 2017

FRIDAY AIN’T NO THING WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE TO WORK IT.
So earlier this week, we sent up Challenger II, in increments, and awaited the fireworks.
Three days on, and nothing e‘slpoding yet.
Still, treading carefully over here.
So I find myself with 10 minutes to myself for once, a miracle of uncertain dimension, yet it colors me optimistic.
AND THEN I GET A HORRIBLE CASE OF BRONCHITIS BECAUSE WHY THE FUCK NOT.
So this is the first day off(actually, really, no-foolin’ off) and I get to spend it trying to suck in life-sustaining air through a diaphragm of mucus at least three feet thick.
I FEEL ALIVE, WHAT CAN I SAY.
A lot of shit seems to be transpiring in the world, so much that I can hardly keep up with it if I even bothered to care. Can’t watch or listen to the news at all anymore; a half-hour broadcast is 22 minutes of TRUMPZOMG!!1!, 86 seconds of dumb chicks who are not nearly hot enough to be on television pointing to maps and telling me about the weather, and 90 seconds of some human interest story that, lately, is repetitive variants on IMMIGRANT DONE GOOD. The rest is commercials. They don’t even bother with sports any more.
So fuck the news.
Even Drudge is bringing me down lately, then it suddenly occurred to me – I think I finally shed the final fuck I had to give.
It’s a great feeling, except now I have absolutely no idea what is going on, nor do I care to learn anymore.
Are we at war with someone Over There?
Don’t care.
Trump been impeached yet?
Sorry, fresh out of fucks. Don’t expect on seeing more any time soon neither.
Any more protests?
Watch as I emphatically and dismissively shrug my shoulders with an immature yet smug expression on my face that clearly indicates what I think of you and your questions.
This is where I am.
And it’s not a bad place to be.
So when the world ends, and creation comes tumbling down all around us, as it inevitably will, I, too, can be genuinely surprised at the timing of it all.
It’s St. Patrick’s Day today, a day where everyone in America becomes a little bit Irish by drinking themselves stupid, but not troubling too much about it because unlike other nights of the year where they get shitface drunk, at least what is supposed to come back out after March 17 is supposed to be green.
March Madness is in full swing. I’ve created a bracket that is already up in flames, because, see above; they don’t even have a sports report anymore and I don’t get a chance to watch games or enjoy anything at all because EVERY SINGLE MOTHER FUCKING THING IN THIS CUNT WAFFLE YOU CALL A SOCIETY HAS TO BE GAMED TO THE LEFT OF THE SOCIO-POLITICAL SPECTRUM, SO FUCK OFF AND DIE, FAGGOTS.
I also note that Our Former Simple Affirmative Action President created a bracket, but since he doesn’t matter anymore, neither does his bracket.
Alright.
Off to drink this thing off and tap into my culture and heritage.
Oh, and if you come across any Scottish folk acting all tough and indignant about BEING SCOTTISH on this day, do remind them that the Irish at least had the balls to fight back against the English, not bankrupt them through sponging up the entitlement money.
Have a bitchin’ weekend, and get ‘em the fuck in.

Good Music DIRFAY

Posted in Good Music Friday by Huckleberry on March 3, 2017

So far, I’m enjoying today’s Friday a little bit better than yesterday’s Friday, and with any luck, tomorrow’s Friday will continue the upward trend, so that by this time next week, all seven Fridays will be pretty fucking sweet, and something worth writing home about.
I’ve taken to calling today’s Friday DIRFAY.
Tomorrow’s Friday, probably, will be YARFID.
Sunday’s Friday, I have no fucking clue, but it’ll probably be RAYDIF.
So still hanging in here, the project that won’t day is nearing it’s second attempt at liftoff. Imagine if the NASA team in charge with prepping the final Challenger flight knew in the couple of weeks beforehand that the thing was going to its very best impression of a bottle rocket, and that there was likely nothing you could do to prevent it, but you all were going to go through the motions and push forward and persevere regardless simply because historical momentum demands it, how do you think that crew handles their prep work? With vigor and enthusiasm and sober attention to every detail? Or by not giving a single flying fairy fuck about any of it because the inevitable is absolutely so regardless of your feeble gestures?
If you guessed the former, get the fuck out.
So yes. I still have a job. There was about 36 hours in the past week where that wasn’t assured, but alas.
Let’s drink, now, until the end of creation, because what other rational choice do you have, really?
Get ‘em the fuck in.

Good Music Friday — SHOUT OUT EDITION

Posted in Good Music Friday by Huckleberry on February 17, 2017

YOU KNOW WHAT DAY IT IS.
I DON’T HAVE TO TELL YOU DESPITE THE FACT THAT, FOR ALL PRACTICAL PURPOSES, YESTERDAY WAS ALSO FRIDAY, AND TOMORROW WILL ALSO BE FRIDAY, WHICH IS ODD, SINCE TODAY IS ALSO FRIDAY.
IF EVERY DAY IS FRIDAY, IS ANY DAY FRIDAY?
PONDER THAT.
MEANWHILE, I’LL BE OVER HERE, NECK DEEP IN THE SHIT AND PREPPING THE DESERT REDOUBT IN THE FEW SCRAPS OF SPARE TIME I WINNOW OUT OF THE ALWAYS-FRIDAY, YOU KNOW, IN CASE THE DEEP STATE GETS REALLY DESPERATE AND DECIDES TO JUST START LOBBING NUKES EVERYWHERE TO BLAME TRUMP.
I MISS THE 80s WHEN SPY SHIT WAS COOL, INSTEAD OF, BASICALLY, A KLATCH OF BITCHY MIDDLE SCHOOL GIRLS WITH CLANDESTINE SURVEILLANCE CAPABILITIES, WETWORK EXPERIENCE, AND SLIGHTLY LESS EMOTIONAL COMPOSURE.
$CURRENT_YEAR(“FTW”)
SO IT’S RAINING. AND IT’S GOING TO KEEP RAINING. PROBABLY FOR EVER. YET WE’RE STILL IN A DROUGHT. PROBABLY FOREVER. EVEN AFTER SACRAMENTO WASHES AWAY DOWN THE SAN JOAQUIN RIVER AND OUT INTO THE EAST BAY.
SO I’M OUT.
WILL BE DRUNK BY DUSK OR HALF-PAST OBLIVION, WHICHEVER SHOWS UP FIRST.
GET ‘EM THE FUCK IN, FRIENDS.
WE’RE ALMOST OUT OF THIS, YET.
