Sirkowski Watch

A fan alerted me to this blog called Sirkowski Watch.
This blog will track the writing and thought of one Sébastien Fréchette, a.k.a. Sirkowski. My main goal is to determine whether or not Sirkowski has a coherent ideology, of if most his comments and musing about politics and the world spring simply from unthinking partisan adherence based on affect.

This is what happens when emo trolls get banned. Damn, I'm gonna be famous like Bill O'Reilly (ORLY? all I need now is to sexually harrass a producer).
So if you ever wanted to know if I'm coherent or not. Are the rumors true, is Sirkowski really a pornographer? Well, you'll find the answers to your questions there!

You won a million dollars!

Does anyone else feel these AdBrite ad banners look horrible? I especialy hate the one that keeps flashing. It's enough to give someone a seizure. The ads don't even generate 50 cents a day, it's not worth the uglyness. I dunno if it's because of the new ad banners or because I don't update often enough with new material, but traffic is down on the site since I started using AdBrite. Is the seizure inducing ads scaring people away? :p My ban from Google AdSense has been lifted and I think I may go back with them. I'll wait a week, see what happens and will make a decision.

Behold a Pale Horse: Iraqi drug-resistant bacteria

It is pathetic how the chickenhawks and serpent-handlers take little heed of the myth they celebrate. We've all heard it: flowers and sweets, mission accomplished, won't last 6 months.
6:8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

But behind the comfort of his keyboard, the wingnuts better pray Jebus that they doesn't get sick and end up in a hospital where Iraq veterans are being treated. For there awaits Acinetobacter baumannii, a drug-resistant bacteria imported from Iraq. Injustice, famine, pestilance, death. War is hell, little green fascists love to say. Not for you. Not yet at least.

Take it Johnny!

Is anyone getting pop-ups or hijacks?

I got this comment on the blog.
Anonymous said... Hard to look at the gallery. Keeps hijickin' the site to systemdoctor.com. Might wanna do somethin' about that. Otherwise keep up the good work.

I went for a quick browse in the gallery with my pop-up blocker to off and I didn't see any pop-ups and my browser wasn't hijacked to anywhere else. Did this happen to anyone? If it does, please note the time and the advertizer so I can contact AdBrite about it.

The only difference I see lately is that I seem to be getting some tits'n'ass in the ad banners. Let's hope it generates some clicks.

Rodent Home Dentistry

Yesterday I was playing with the rats when Eva tried some half-assed manoeuver and fell on the floor. It's not the first time this happens and it's not for carelesness on my part. Rats are real daredevils. But unlike their squirrel cousins, they're not that skilled. They'll fall on their ass two out of three times they try a stunt. Luckily for them, their small size enables them to survive a 15 meters fall usualy without serious injuries. They also tend to fall on their feet, almost as good as their nemesis the cat. And the word here is 'usualy'.

So right after the fall I noticed something was wrong with Eva. She kept squeaking, something rats only do out of fear or pain. I thought maybe she had sprained a paw, something she did once when she was a baby, but she seemed to be able to walk and climbed normally. Maybe she was just scared, so I gave her a yogurt drop (kinda like a white chocolate chip). That's when I noticed everytime she tried to eat it, she'd jump and squeak. I looked at her mouth and noticed a tooth was crooked. She probably fell on her face. I rolled her into a towel like a fajita to restrain her and have a good look. I could move the tooth, to Eva's obvious discomfort, but didn't know how strong it remained attached. I was hoping I wouldn't have to go to the vet again. So I put Eva back into her cage for the night, hoping the tooth would come loose by itself.

Eva was able to eat, with some difficulty, but still the tooth remained in place. I was afraid it would continue to grow crooked. So I rolled Eva in a towel fajita again under a bright lamp, took a pair of pliers and pulled the tooth out. It came off easily. It was probably only holding to the gums and would have dropped eventually. Now Eva looks relatively fine, lying in the hammock, being groomed by Blackie. :-)

I for one welcome our new sponsor overlord!

I haven't received an answer from Google, but you know what, skrew them. I moved with AdBrite. It doesn't change much since it's the same size and color. But I think over time this might be good because AdBrite should better at targeting traffic. As the system gets adjusted, I'm hoping to get more ads for anime and gaming related stuff and less for low mortgages. And to help the system get better, if you do see an ad that is relevant to your needs or tastes, please visit the link. The more revenue I get from the ads, the more time I have free to work on the anime.

Fuck da Eagles

I'm still waiting for Google AdSense's decision since they've suspended the ads service for my site (as you may have noticed the white rectangle up there). If they don't lift the suspension, I might move with AdBrite. If they service 4chan, hell, I don't know who they would deny service to.

In the mean time, here's a clip from tonight's football on FOX. Is this gonna be ok with the FCC since it's not Janet Jackson? Are they gonna lose sponsors like me? :-p

While you're at it, vote for me on Best Post: Karl Rove is Gay http://www.liberalavenger.com/2006/11/09/worldnetdaily-karl-rove-is-gay/ My post was picked by Raw Story after all. :-)

Trouble with advertizers?

Just as I thought I might be getting some revenues from the ads displayed on the site. I get this nice surprise in my inbox.
While reviewing your account, we noticed that you are currently displaying G**gle ads in a manner that is not compliant with our policies. For instance, we found violations of policies on pages such as (note from Sirk, I deleted the page)
As stated in our program policies, publishers are not permitted to place G**gle ads on pages with adult or mature content.
As a result, we have disabled ad serving to the site.
Your AdSense account remains active. Please note that we may disable your account if further violations are found in the future.
Blah! There was nothing adult displayed on the page, only a link that led to my adult site. And Mature Content is so subjective. It also says ads are disable, but as far as I can tell, they still seem to be working, so what gives??? Why this kind of stuff always happens to me? I've seen far more "risqué" websites than mine display G**gle ads. And of course, they don't offer any recourse or way to defend and explain myself.

Update: I'm not bending over for them. If they ban me, they ban me, end of story. I'll move to another service. That's it, that's all! The so-called "problem" was obviously found by a search bot. I've found people who have had similar problems and they were children charity websites. e_e

Update II: Ads have been suspended.

Muqtada and fanarts

On the left, a screenshot of Moqtada al-Sadr, from Miss Dynamite XXII. The Shi'ite mollah at the head of one of the strongest militia in Iraq, the Mahdi Army (the army of "End Times"). On the right, variation on Eva teaching her class in Miss Dynamite XXII. I'm shameless, can you spot the recycling from Miss Dynamite XIII? (the bsb torture). I improved the coloration, so it's not so obvious that it's like 3 or 4 years old. That wasn't even drawn with the tablet at the time. I used to ink on paper, draw the shadows as well on paper then scan everything and import in Flash. All this on a Pentium 133mhz with only 16mb or RAM...

There's also fanarts from Nelson and Macabre.

TiggerGate: I'm with Disney

I know that by doing this I'm also taking the defense of a furry, what that kinda stuff pisses me off so fucking much!

First, Tigger didn't punch the brat, he just shoved his big paw in his geek face. Second, you can see the kid was pulling something behind Tigger's back. His tail or his zipper? I know Disney has a strict policy for mascots never to be seen without their costume. Doing something that could get you fired would warrant at least a bitch slap. And third, this is a classic opportunistic money grabbing ambulance chaser trailer trash scam. What a riot this kid is gonna be back at school. You got your ass kicked by a big plushy, Christ! I say Disney should get their best monstro-capitalister lawyers on the case, win it and then force the kid to a deathmatch with a real tiger. We'll see how you like 'em big paws, with claws this time.

US Soldier for Miss Dynamite XXII

Screenshot of a US Army soldier in Baghdad from Miss Dynamite XXII. In the following image you can see what he's made of. It took me more than an hour to draw that Flash puppet. I could have probably done it in 20 minutes as one single drawing, but I'll save so much time by being able to recycle that guy to death.

...then they came for the straights

Last year, theocrats in Virginia succesfuly amended the state's constitution to ban same-sex marriage. Encouraged by this victory, the closet-homos of Focus on the Family of Virginia now want to change the laws to make it more difficult for married couples to get divorced. Yep, you read that right, first they came after the homos, now the heteros.
The Family Foundation, which opposes abortion and promotes socially conservative values, said it will lobby the General Assembly this year to amend the state's long-standing no-fault divorce law, which essentially allows a husband or wife to terminate a marriage without cause.

That means that if you are married with children and want a divorce, your spouse has to agree with you, otherwise, tough. They say Virginia is for lovers? It's also for poor suckers stuck in loveless marriages it seems.

I think this might be the begining of the end for these theocrats. It was easy to pass an amendment that is discriminatory against gays because of general apathy. Nobody cares because it only touches a small purcentage of the population. But with around 50% of straight marriages ending in divorce in America, this pill might be too hard to swallow and it could lead to a backlash against bigoted groups like Focus on the Anus. Later, if civil right groups try to repeal the anti-gay amendment, they will have a good argument that shows where bigotry leads. h/t AmericaBlog
They came first for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me,
and by that time no one was left to speak up.
On the same subject, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General John M. Shalikashvili, has declared that the US military should end its "don't ask; don't tell" policy and fully integrate homosexuals in its organization. Shalikashvili helped and supported the policy during the Clinton years. With 70% of US soldiers saying they would not mind serving with homosexual soldiers and with an army at war in dire need of fresh blood, Shalikashvili might be on to something. But patriotic homos serving their country? How awfull! So here comes the 101st Fighting Keyboardist wingnuts to the rescue.
Donnelly notes that Shalikashvili has in the last year or so suffered a debilitating stroke and is, in her words, “struggling to retain his health.” She says it is “really sad” to see someone like the general being used by the homosexual propaganda machine as “the latest tool of a public relations campaign.
Yes, of course, it must be one of those gay zionist conspiracies! Shalikashvili is implying that "all men were created equal". Talk about one crazy fucker! e_e h/t Pandagon

Searching: The Party, by Henry Mancini

Update: Got it! Thanks Rick.

I'm looking for the song The Party, by Henry Mancini (vocal version, from the movie of the same name). I don't want to pay for the whole album and none of the pay-per-song download sites seem to have it.

Virgil Goode got pwned!

What a slam dunk this is by Minnesota’s fifth district Rep.-elect Keith Ellison, the first Muslim sent to Congress. He has had to deal with the Christofascist bleatings of Virginia Rep. Virgil Goode, who claimed Ellison’s desire to use the Koran instead of a bible at his swearing in was “unAmerican.”

Keith Ellison will use a copy of the Koran once owned by Thomas Jefferson. And to make the pwnage even better, Goode represents Jefferson’s birthplace.
“Fix Reason firmly in her seat, and call to her tribunal every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve the homage of reason than of blindfolded fear. … Do not be frightened from this inquiry by any fear of its consequences. If it end in a belief that there is no God, you will find incitements to virtue in the comfort and pleasantness you feel in its exercise and in the love of others which it will procure for you”.
Thomas Jefferson
