"Antman & The Wasp" -- yet another funny, satisfying action movie. The Marvel folks make it look easy, and yet somehow others can't do it..

The people match the paintings.

I don't understand. The lesbians I watch on the Internet are divide-by-zero more sexy than the lesbians I encounter in the off-leach dog park across the street.

Discuss!

Based on this picture, my impression is that art is entertainment and that the entertainees are comfortable with that.

It was leached out of them?

Art lovers don't seem as fat as the average sampling of Americans. Also, there always seems to be a few hot girls in any group of art lovers.....I have no real appreciation of art, but art lovers aren't so bad to look at. Artists try very hard but few of them can produce anything so beautiful as a pretty girl looking pretty against a backdrop of great paintings.

I have that Seurat in the upstairs hall.

In 2017 my wife and I were in NYC in February and went to the Met Museum on a Friday night. I assumed it would be packed, but no . . several times I found myself looking at a Hopper or a Rothko and I was the only one in the room (except maybe a guard).
My best museum experience. The worst (by far) was the Art Institute in Chicago, every room jam-packed with noisy/smelly kids and tourists.
At first I thought that peaceful Friday was a fluke, but it may be that way tickets are priced/sold, Friday night seems from vantage of the huddled masses to be the least attractive time to go. So that's my travel tip for anyone going to NYC; just don't tell anyone else.

Have you read Jeffrey Toobin's screed in the New Yorker about Kavanaugh?

He has gone full Laslo. Here's a direct quote, criticizing Kavanaugh's role with Ken Starr in the Independent Counsel case against Bill Clinton:

"In a memo to Starr, he proposed that Clinton be asked the following questions, among others, before the grand jury: “If Monica Lewinsky says that you ejaculated into her mouth on two occasions in the Oval Office area, would she be lying? . . . If Monica Lewinsky says that on several occasions you had her give [you] oral sex, made her stop, and then ejaculated into the sink in the bathroom off the Oval Office, would she be lying?”

This a Stormy Daniels caliber-type grilling!

I think I like him even better now.

Toobin is highly distraught over this!

Currently in Day 3 of a major bathroom remodel. I used the Althouse Amazon Portal to buy some of the materials. I would use the portal a lot more, but my wife and girls tend to order stuff behind my back.

By the way, I'm not actually doing the remodel (not this time). Having it done by professionals. It's my wife's dream bathroom and I didn't want to screw it up.

Toobin is showing how smart he is by surfacing more Billy shit.
Hil drinks to that..

I'm fearful that Trump may now be in violation of the newly discovered "No "Brett's" allowed on the Supreme Court" clause of the Constitution.

This is sure to be silver bullet to impeachment that the lefties and their LLR Chuck-like allies have been looking for.

They can't use article 12 or 13 or 69 anymore either.

According to MSNBC the Constitution is out of date since it is no longer 1776...

Their efforts to turn out complete idiots with college degrees in communications are working better than their efforts to impeach Trump.

If you don't understand what is wrong with what the retards at the link you are saying you are probably a democrat.

Just saying.

Katie Tur is certainly adept at removing all doubt.

The people match the paintings.

I recall a photography exhibit where the subject was the beauty of museum patrons examining an exhibit in one of those museum galleries with the tall ceiling and the dramatic filtered light. The groupings, lighting, the poses. So compelling...


Ralph L said...

That's quite a shirt. Pollack got nuttin on him. Where does one get clothes like that?

rhhardin said...

If Monica Lewinsky says that you ejaculated into her mouth on two occasions in the Oval Office area, would she be lying?

"Would you say yes if I asked you if this was the way to the village?" is how you rind the way to the village regardless whether the guy is a consistent truth teller or a consistent liar.

"Did you know they're giving away free beer in the village?" is how you find out even if the guy is an inconsistent liar. Ignore what he answers and follow him.

Senate Hearing = cool chance to impeachment of nominee as it was intended to be!!

The guy on the right is wearing 'Lularoe' the line of clothing sold 'at parties' for plus size ladies.

Darrell said...

I'm trying to figure out the damage on the sole of the cute blonde using her cellphone. Normal wear would have worn away the horizontal thread portion as well. The damage seems to come from the inside of her shoe. I'll need her shoes and clothing for a proper investigation.

I'm assuming Gum, or more possibly tape; some sort of foreign object

I'm certainly GLAD to see that Sundress and Straw Hat girl is back! Or, is it a new, and different Sundress and Straw hat girl? That would be Awesome!

gilbar said...

Same Sundress and Straw hat girl ( i went back and checked; since there (currently) is no Sundress and Straw hat girl tag)

Darrell; IF you click on the flickr pic, it goes into its own screen; then you can Zoom in, and see: Clearly Gum (or other FOD). It's worn off on the treads

Chuck said...

So in a comments on a post of some days ago (about the real accuracy of Trump transcripts), there was an accusation that Trump-haters don't listen to or watch Trump live, and their perceptions are then badly skewed by a transcript-only version of Trump. I said at the time that I very often watch Trump live before criticizing him. Today I couldn't see it, but I listened to it live on my NPR station.

(Funny; at the top-of-hour NPR newsbreak, the reporter indicated in no uncertain terms that Trump again made the claim that the U.S. pays for 90% of NATO, and reported that that is a false claim.)

Next time I go to a museum I'll watch out for the paparazzi.

I'm shocked that no one so far has mentioned that Lisa Page is a LAYER.

Scott Adams's periscope on this is hysterical.

Best President ever.

rehajm said...

The Trump direct quote was seventy to ninety percent, depending on how you calculate it

In no uncertain terms, not what Chuck claims.

Darrell said...

The fucking Europeans add roads and such to their share totals. As I said yesterday, statistics are like bikinis: What they show is important, but what they conceal is vital.

Darrell said...

If you don't listen to NPR you are ill-informed.
If you do listen to NPR, you are misinformed.

Rehajm: "The Trump direct quote was seventy to ninety percent, depending on how you calculate it

LLR and #DurbinCuckholster Chuck has openly stated that his purpose here is to smear Trump.

Hardly surprising then that Chuck would be happily pushing more lefty lies from his democrat allies.

Trump does a lot of that. "People say..." "By some accounts..." Today he blurted the 90% number without qualification. Yes, he's said "seventy to ninety" at various times. Which is it? 70%? Or 90%? What's the proof of even "70%" U.S. support? And when has Trump ever explained what he is talking about?

And now Macron is saying that the French haven't changed anything or pledged anything new about defense spending w/r/t NATO.

That's how you knew, if you needed proof, that Bill Clinton was a sick pathetic loser. Who would do that? You're the President, man! She'll swallow!

Bad Lieutenant said...

Me. President, just bring the boys home. It's over. Sell the Poles a hundred short-range nuclear missiles, like the Pershing III or TLAM, and call it a day. Nobody will invade nobody.

Bad Lieutenant said...

Mr. Stupid, stupid Android.

Darrell said...

Chuck is just upset that his girl Stormy got arrested yesterday, further destroying her potential as a witness. Next he'll demand an investigation to link that to Trump.

I have the feeling that Stormy Daniels may not even be needed as any sort of witness after the Michael Cohen document dump. What's the need for her testimony? To prove she had sex with Trump? To prove that Trump -- through Cohen -- arranged to pay her? That's admitted now, right?

Shera Bechard; now she might be a more interesting witness. Because, as Trump often claims, "Some people are saying..."

Nice to see people in a museum not scrambling to take photos of pictures. Last year we were at the Uffizi in Florence and most we taking photos and not appreciating the art.

Since Europe is already committing suicide by their immigration policies, are we just throwing money down the loo by supporting NATO?

Poor chuck. Still sniffing those panties of the hookers.

Poor LLR Chuck.

No matter what he tries he is unable to extricate his lunatic lefty allies from the Pit Of Despair they have dug for themselves.

It is amusing to watch however..

WOW....this public Strzok hearing is a circus..

WOW....this public Strzok hearing is a circus..

The lefties interrupting Gowdy's questioning are like a giant neon arrow pointing to the corruption.

320Busdriver said...

Did you see the theater when Cummings was talking...the posters of the guilty pleas?


What a clustereff

mockturtle said...

I love watching Strzok squirm under Gowdy's questioning. And that smirking demeanor isn't helping Strzok's credibility.

And having an adulterous affair with a co-worker, alone, should be grounds for termination from the FBI.

rehajm said...

Sickening how many of the leftie committee members are willing to fall on the Strzok grenade. I suppose its a sign of how little they have left.

320Busdriver said...

The fact that such an unprofessional hack like Strzok could rise to the top at a high level law enforcement agency is enough to destroy the credibility of that agency and extends to the Federal government at large.

I wouldn't trust Strzok to walk my dog. He should be fired and his pension stripped at best.

Marc said...

Is it really the case that Mr Rosenstein's use of prosecutors from each of the 93 US Attorney's offices in the country to vet Judge Kavanaugh is simply due to the judge's unprecedentedly voluminous papers or is something else going on? If I were Mr Trump, I think I'd want an answer to that question.

Funny that Strzok said he didn't remember the text but a minute later said it was done 'late at night'...
