In which I yell into a microphone and shake like a leaf.

      Comments Off on In which I yell into a microphone and shake like a leaf.

This is me at the VanSlam on Monday night. I haven’t watched the video and probably won’t. I have issues with watching myself on video and am not in the right headspace to do so today or maybe ever. But, you know, if you wanted to see me perform “Blood Candle”…there you go. Now, back to work, from which I… Read more »

Texas GOP, STAHP. You are not Time Lords. You don’t even have ONE heart.

      Comments Off on Texas GOP, STAHP. You are not Time Lords. You don’t even have ONE heart.

That joke may be lost on you if you don’t follow Doctor Who, or what happened in Texas on Tuesday the 25th (yesterday/today). I can help you with the second bit! What follows is my Storify compilation of tweets (some by me; most by others) telling the story of Wendy Davis’ heroism and her 13+ hours filibustering a bill that… Read more »

Canada, your outrage is severely misplaced

      2 Comments on Canada, your outrage is severely misplaced

Liberal swearing ahead. Moreso than usual. Recently our esteemed government saw fit to reward Justin Bieber with a Diamond Jubilee Medal. Canada is outraged at this.

Two, what Bieber… Read more »

The title of this post makes it seem like the “weekly round-up” is an actual thing here at Bacon and Whiskey, but this is probably the first time I’ve ever done it. Also, not sure if it’ll happen again; there are just several short things this week that I want to cover in one post. ~*~ Science-Fiction Fantasy Saturday If… Read more »

Canada, you are drunk. Give me your keys.

      2 Comments on Canada, you are drunk. Give me your keys.

From the “Oh Gods, Canada, Stop Failing At Everything” files. The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal, or the QDJM, has been given to women who are in jail for injunctions at abortion clinics. These people are anti-choicers, and they get a medal. From the article (bolding mine): “Unlike the justice minister, Vellacott was unable to award these medals to… Read more »

      Comments Off on For Mother’s Day I am Pro Abortion: on demand, no questions asked, no compromises given.

Every part of you belongs to you. –ILU-486, by Amanda Ching It’s Mother’s Day. And while I’d love to just post a happy one to all the mothers out there, whether to children of their own womb, adopted, fur-babies, or creative projects, and be done with it, I cannot. For there is a war on parents. We are all parents…. Read more »

Passports and Fear

      10 Comments on Passports and Fear

My passport is missing. Actually, my passports are missing. I have two, both current: US and Canada. I only need one to travel (technically*) and I cannot find either of them. I keep them in a special silver case that protects them from electromagnetic rays and beaming up by aliens and other various nasties. Yes, I love my passports so… Read more »
