Dave Alexander & Company and Pacifica


After many years of coordination and cooperation, Dave Alexander & Company will soon become a Pacifica Affiliate.  We thank you for your interest.

UPDATE: For those who are wondering why we didn’t sign up for the Pacifica Radio Affiliate program? Yahoo says I shouldn’t click.

As the Nation Spirals Further Down into the Toilet…

…of the Obama years, the food editors of the New York Times take a moment to answer that burning question that weighs with increasingly heaviness on our minds in these sad days:

Is it safe to eat moldy bread?


USDA nutritionists, you can be assured, are currently hard at work on the parallel question, “Would you like some government cheese with that?”

Ahh, good times, good times.

Isn’t Writing an Amazon Review for a Book You’ve Never Read Illegal?

Or immoral?  Unethical?  Doesn’t Amazon have police, or something?

This is from Amazon, and the sales page for Confessions of an Undercover Internet Troll.  Although, hmm.  Looks like that review by Bill has been pulled.  Must have been an impulse thing.


It seems like a while ago, but Bill Schmalfeldt was fighting with Lickspittles about “fake” reviews.

FYI: I got in trouble with Bill for reviewing his comedy album from the 55 second previews of each cut on Amazon.  Later I listened to most of the album and found out he’s just as funny as he’s always been.

Unavailing = Manure

Bess Truman was once asked by the women covering the First Lady if she would kindly ask President Truman to stop using the word “manure” in public.  Mrs. Truman responded by saying “you have no idea how long it took me to get him to start saying “manure.”  Or something like that.

Apparently lawyers have a gentler term for horseshit.

From Hogewash, a part of the Hunton and Williams LLC latest motion to dismiss the RICO2 Electric Boogaloo case:


“Sorry, I was late for dinner, ma.  I stepped in some unavailing, and had to scrape it off.”

Schmalfeldt vs. Parvocampus: Better Than Godzilla vs. Mothra

I used to enjoy Saturday morning monster movies.  The Japanese Godzilla, Mothra and Rodan films were the best.  The Schmalfeldt situation blew open again a couple of days ago with the publication (really, just assembling) of Paul Krendler’s writing in a book available at Amazon.  Bill Schmalfeldt says he had nothing to do with it, except of course, he posted a tweet days before saying that he planned to publish all of Paul Krendler’s writing.


GMMG-Mothra_Appears_Behind_GodzillaNone of it makes sense, because Krendler won’t have to buy his copyright.  In theory, he could sue anonymously to stop the publication (really not publication) of the so-called “book.”

Now, a new face has emerged — or reemerged.  Perhaps reanimated.  Long before Krendler was Krendler, there was Parvocampus.  I’m pretty sure Parvo wrote the original Krendler posts, or vice versa.

Like a kaiju monster, long dormant beneath the sea, Parvocampus is starting to write again.  This will not be good for those who wanted this thing to fade away.
