Merry Christmas from the Vierdsens

“Aimee Mann’s Christmas Carol,” in four parts.



h/t Mattheus Mei


While those bastards fix what they did to John’s machine…

…enjoy one of Aimee Mann’s newest songs. Vierdsen got a poster and a set list from Mann’s show in the RVA (signed, natch), so he’s a happy boy. Well, to a degree, anyway (indie rock jokes).


Alabama – Tennessee Hate Week goes into the homestretch: ‘I don’t like pumpkins’

By the way, Tennessee honk and “SEC blogger” Clay Travis has said that Bama will lose this game. Vierdsen doesn’t like to break out this word, but it’s clear that Travis is a Grade-A cunt. The guy is an admitted Vols fan and if you’ve ever spent an extended time around Knoxville, you know that the entire populace is related by less than six degrees. Even a relative of Vierdsen’s, who had no real animus toward Tennessee, came out of a two-year sojourn in Knoxville with a death-hatred of those assholes. Oh, and Clay — yeah, the Vols might win, but Bama actually has a defense, and God knows Tennessee can’t score against one of those.

Who is Keyser Soze?

Fogle’s certainly lined up the usual suspects, and as of 6:50 p.m., these are the standings:

1. Wesley Donehue (18%, 15 Votes)
2. B.J. Boling (15%, 13 Votes)
3. Ross Shealy (13%, 11 Votes)
4. Trav Robertson (11%, 9 Votes)
5. Other (10%, 8 Votes)
6. Mike Rentiers (7%, 6 Votes)
7. Corey Hutchins (5%, 4 Votes)
8. Garrett Gay (4%, 3 Votes)
9. Adam Fogle (4%, 3 Votes)
10. Lachlan McIntosh (4%, 3 Votes)
11. Michael Reese (4%, 3 Votes)
12. Phil Bailey (2%, 2 Votes)
13. Paul Adams (2%, 2 Votes)
14. Will Folks (1%, 1 Votes)
15. Tim Kelly (1%, 1 Votes)
16. Patrick Norton (0%, 0 Votes)

Someone commented that write-in votes should be Hogan Gidley, Morton Brilliant and Greg Foster. Well, Vierdsen can tell you one thing — it ain’t Morton Brilliant. John’s of the opinion that guy is a total douchebag. Is there anybody who knew him that thought he wasn’t a little slimy?

Anyway, it’s a little funny that Fogle’s going after little ol’ Vierdsen. Unlike Mr. Scoop, John doesn’t have an entire major political consulting firm backing him up, and all the resources and advantages that entails, or an extensive network of the firm’s clients feeding him information. He’s just a guy that’s a little smart, can figure out a few things and write a coherent sentence.

It’s like UL-Monroe’s win over Alabama last year — you don’t have to have the depth or the facilities and resources, but when the other guys are throwing you picks on their side of the field on a regular basis, it’s not hard to pull an upset.

By the way, you may want to watch out for the balding guy with a limp.

Nihilism: It’s what’s for dinner
Originally uploaded by johnvierdsen

Don’t know why, but watching the Dow plummeting this afternoon was a little exciting. Like when you’re in the middle of a hurricane and thinking, “This is a Category 3? Bullshit.”

The fact is, when the economy’s been going bad for you since, oh, the beginning of Bush’s first term, and it’s never been worse, you stop giving a shit.

That’s what’s led Wonkette commentator Crow T. Robot to evoke the nihilism that’s spreading among the ailing middle class:

I lost my home. I’m am tens of thousand of dollars in debt. I have no assets. All of my disposable income goes to interest payments. I doubt I have $1000 in my retirement. I’m 42.

We don’t need no water. Let the fucker burn.


That’s what makes what Sen. John McCain is doing look so fucking stupid. This guy is going on and on about damn Bill Ayers and doing everything but allowing his surrogates to call Sen. Barack Obama a “secret Muslim,” while people don’t care.

Hey, McCain – want to try and not lose by 200 electoral votes? Talk about the economy with some intelligence at some point, instead of some idiotic tertiary issue that you’re getting wrong, to begin with.

When Obama takes more than 350 electoral votes on Election Day, McCain is going to look like Bob Dole in ’96 and Bush 41 in ’92.

It’s the Clinton mantra all over again, “Change versus more of the same/The economy stupid/Don’t forget health care.”
