Rant Incoming re: The San Diego sex scandal and my disgust with Lee Burdick

I need to rant. It's political in nature and relates to a sex scandal in San Diego, so feel free to just skip it if you're not interested. I totally understand.

Okay, if you stayed, then I now need to apologize for NSFW language. 'Cause it's coming.

I watched this video last night and I'm still pissed this morning. I woke up and the first thing I thought about was just how fucking pissed I was about this woman's behavior and her absolute shamelessness as she both throws feminism under the bus and talks out of both sides of her mouth at the same time.

Some background: San Diego mayor Bob Filner has been accused of sexual harassment by no less than 8 women. There's an entire timeline over at the AP, but basically here's the deal.

When women started coming forward, he denied it. More women, he denied it and said he wouldn't resign. More women and then some policy was put into place where he wouldn't be allowed to be in the same room with a woman alone and that his chief of staff would be in the room if he was with women. That CoS quit after having had the job only 10 days. New CoS was appointed. 2 more women came forward and then Filner announced he was taking two weeks off for "treatment" during a press conference.

The city is trying to recall him, people are suing and Filner even had the gall to ask the city of San Diego to pay his legal fees. Their answer was no. I like to imagine they added "fuck you very much", but that's just me.

Up to this point, I was disgusted but I figured the city of San Diego would work it out and they didn't see to have any tolerance for his shenanigans.

Then I saw this interview done by Melissa Harris Perry who was filling in for Rachel Maddow last night. Melissa interviewed Lee Burdick, Filner's new Chief of Staff, and I lost it.

There's not a single doubt in my mind that this women is setting herself up to be named an interim mayor of the city or will run once the job is vacated. She seems to love using words like "allegations" and "truth" but she has them completely out of context in this case.

Somehow, she manages to acknowledge Filner's actions and deny that there's any truth to the women's allegations all in the same interview. Melissa Harris Perry does a great job here, but I think even she was left speechless by the utter gall of this woman.

The idea that this woman can sit here, straight faced, forwarding her agenda while literally stepping on women who have been harassed by the asshole she's "defending" makes me sick. The idea that she thinks using legal nuance makes it okay? Well, that made me want to punch her in the face.

****************************
R.I.P.D. synopsis
Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds headline the 3D supernatural action-adventure R.I.P.D. as two cops dispatched by the otherworldly Rest In Peace Department to protect and serve the living from an increasingly destructive array of souls who refuse to move peacefully to the other side.

Veteran sheriff Roy Pulsifer (Bridges) has spent his career with the legendary police force known as R.I.P.D. tracking monstrous spirits who are cleverly disguised as ordinary people. His mission? To arrest and bring to justice a special brand of criminals trying to escape final judgment by hiding among the unsuspecting on Earth.

Once the wise-cracking Roy is assigned former rising-star detective Nick Walker (Reynolds) as his junior officer, the new partners have to turn grudging respect into top-notch teamwork. When they uncover a plot that could end life as we know it, two of R.I.P.D.’s finest must miraculously restore the cosmic balance...or watch the tunnel to the afterlife begin sending angry souls the very wrong way.

R.I.P.D. is directed by Robert Schwentke (Red) and produced by Neal H. Moritz (Fast & Furious series, I Am Legend), Mike Richardson (Hellboy, Hellboy II: The Golden Army) and Michael Fottrell (Fast & Furious series, Live Free or Die Hard).

RELEASE DATE - In theaters July 19

Just spotted this news over on the QMx Facebook page:

At our booth next week (#3249), you'll have your first shot at buying the cutest Starfleet ever to grace the bridge: Kirk, Spock and Uhura will all be available in very limited quantities at the show:

I'm sharing them because they're adorable and, if you can't be at SDCC, you can get on the waiting list to get them after the show.

Love the Uhura so much in the FACE!








I'm stoked to see these will be in soon and I can't wait to see them in person. I'm not sure if the Tribbles will be at the show or if they won't be in until after, but you gonna get on the waiting list for these babies.



I hope you guys'll make sure to drop by the QMx booth and check out all the goodies because I have a feeling there's going to be all kinds of awesome there.


The new Puppet Master Blade plush is adorbz as all get out

Once upon a time, back in the long, long ago, I was in the industry and one of the studios that always seemed to be casting and looking for new people was Full Moon. They were a number of friends' first LA acting gigs and they'll always have a special place in my heart for being both horror and quirk and the movie company that got my friend literally bitten in the ass in Ghoulies ::grin::

So I was totally stoked to get an email debuting their new "Plush Buddy" line because, well, we know I love plush.



First up in the series is Puppet Master's own Blade.

He's 12 inches tall, comes with a collectible hang tag featuring character art and personality stats, and is available now for $24.95 from Amazon and Full Moon’s own online store fullmoondirect.com.

Was so stoked when I spotted this. ::grin:: Day = made.
