Rule Number 1 – Don’t Piss Off the Linda Hamilton Fans

The internet is a big, scary place.  I recently posted what I thought was a review of “Home By Christmas” which is a Lifetime Original Movie starring Linda Hamilton.  I pointed out that she looked a little rough in it, along with some comments on the crapulence of the film.

Well.  This is a website, lovingly yet sporadically maintained by me in some incarnation or another since 2007, and I’ve cracked on many celebrities, many Lifetime Original Movies, and many other things since then.  I’ve never gotten more than 40 visits in one day.  Yesterday I had a large contingent of the Linda Hamilton Fan Club stop by to spill a little haterade on my page.  And I published the comments, because what I said pissed them off and I’ve never not published a not-spam comment and I’m not going to start now.  Go take a look at the comments, especially one by Monica, where the girl says she can kick my ass.

Somebody else suggested the name of this blog should be “Sometimes About Horse’s Arses” and to that I respond with two comments.  1) right now it is.  And 2) that domain name is already taken.  Just kidding about the second one.  I didn’t check.  Being that I am not the power-crazed fun-poker you make me out to be (I am a powerless fun-poker, thank you very much) I feel like I’ve apologized enough.

That all being said – where were the rabid Jeremy Sisto fans when I posted this gem?  Only one?

Also, I never thought about pissing off people’s fans as a blog concept.  I made a comment, and internet MAGIC happened.  I might stop doing all my charity work, stop being nice to everyone I meet, and start writing mean things FULL TIME.  That’s what over-the-top fandom does to me.  Who should be my next victim?

Things I Learned from Watching TV Last Night

1. If you’re going to murder a neighbor, it’s best to live in a building with an incinerator.
2. Halle Berry’s feet don’t stink.
3. Being “an inspiration” isn’t good enough to get you the Judge’s Save on American Idol.
4. I literally can barely understand a word Jay Leno says.
5. I’m fairly certain that the first guest singer on American Idol last night was rapping a song about non-family appropriate things to the tune of a Dead or Alive song.
6. No matter if your dead husband’s soul is in another man’s body, if there is enough residue of that other man in there, he’s not OK with the fact that you can see ghosts.
7. Television advertisers have embraced the fact that Easter symbols are based in Pagan fertility rites. You know how I know? That stupid Cadbury commercial with the chocolate bunny staring down the peanut butter to the tune of “Let’s Get it On”.
8. Domino’s CEO really must be a nice guy. Or an evil genius.
9. PIRATES!!!!!
10. Again, PIRATES! Honestly folks, did you ever think you’d hear of a pirate attack? I know it sucks and everything, but it is so surreal to have a newscaster say, “And on the coast of Kenya today, pirates attacked a U.S. destroyer and have taken the captain captive in a gut-wrenching drama on the high seas.”

I do hope that the Somali pirates let the guy go and that nobody get hurt. Darn those Johnny Depp movies for desensitizing all of us to the real danger of pirates. It’s no laughing matter, Folks.
