the Raven

ballad of a drunk driver

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I drank and drove, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious bottles of forgotten beer,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of someone gently rapping, rapping at my Land Rover door.
 'Tis some visitor," I muttered, "tapping at my Rover door;
Only this, and nothing more."

Ah, distinctly I remember, it was in the bleak December,
And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.
Eagerly I wished the morrow; vainly I had sought to borrow
From my books surcease of sorrow, sorrow for the lost Lenore,
For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore or maybe Kasi??
Nameless here forevermore.

And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain
Thrilled me---filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating,
'Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my Land Rover's door,
Some late visitor entreating entrance at my Rover's door.
This it is, and nothing more."

Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,
"Sir," said I, "or madam, truly your forgiveness I implore;
But the fact is, I was napping at a green light after drinking, and so gently you came rapping,
And so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my SUV's door,
That I scarce was sure I heard you." Here I opened wide the door;---
Darkness there, and nothing more.

Deep into the darkness peering with bloodshot eyes, long I stood there, nearly tipping, wondering, fearing
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortals ever dared to dream before;
But the silence was unbroken, and the stillness gave no token,
And the only word there spoken was the whispered words, BLOW HARDER!!
This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the words,
"BLOW HARDER" Merely this, and nothing more.

Back into the car I's turning, all my soul within me burning,
Soon again I heard a tapping, something louder than before,
"Surely," said I, "surely, that is something at my window lattice.
Let me see, then, what thereat is, and this mystery explore.
Let my heart be still a moment, and this mystery explore.
" 'Tis the wind, and nothing more."

Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,
In there stepped a stately raven-haired cop, of the saintly days of yore.
Not the least obeisance made she; not a minute stopped or stayed she;
But with mien of lord or lady, perched above my Land Rover's door.
Perched upon a bust of Pallas, just above my Rover's door,
Perched, and sat, and nothing more.

Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
"Though thy crest be shorn and shaven thou," I said, "art sure no craven,
Ghastly, grim, and ancient raven, wandering from the nightly shore.
Tell me what the Chief's name is on the Night's Plutonian shore."
Quoth the raven-haired cop, "Nevermore."

Much I marveled this unmanly cop to hear discourse so plainly,
Though her answer little meaning, little relevancy bore;
For we cannot help agreeing that no living human being
Ever yet was blessed with seeing bird above his Rover door,
Bird or beast upon the sculptured bust above his Rover door,
With such name as "Nevermore."

But the ravenous cop, sitting lonely on that placid bust, spoke only
That one word, as if her soul in that one word she did outpour.
Nothing further then she uttered; not a feather then she fluttered;
Till I scarcely more than muttered, "Other friends have flown before;
On the morrow she will leave me in jail, as my hopes have flown before."
Then the cop said, "Nevermore."

Startled at the stillness broken by reply so aptly spoken,
"Doubtless," said I, "what it utters is its only stock and store,
Caught from some unhappy master, whom unmerciful disaster
Followed fast and followed faster, till her songs one burden bore,---
Till the dirges of her hope that melancholy burden bore..
Of "Never---nevermore."

But the raven-haired cop still beguiling all my sad soul into smiling,
Straight I wheeled a cushioned seat in front of gal cop, and bust and door;
Then, upon the velvet sinking, I betook myself to linking
Fancy unto fancy, thinking what this ominous cop of yore --
What this grim, ungainly, ghastly, gaunt and ominous cop of yore
Meant in croaking "furthermore, you're under arrest for DUI"

Thus I sat engaged in guessing, but no syllable expressing
To the fowl cop, whose fiery eyes now burned into my bosom's core;
This and more I sat divining, with my head at ease reclining and spinning
On the cushion's velvet lining that the lamplight gloated o'er,
But whose velvet violet lining with the lamplight gloating o'er
She shall press, ah, nevermore!

"Prophet!" said I, "thing of evil!--prophet still, if bird or devil!
Whether tempter sent, or whether tempest tossed thee here ashore,
Desolate, yet all undaunted, on this desert land rover enchanted--
On this home by horror haunted--tell me truly, I implore:
Is there--is there champagne at the Canary?--tell me--tell me I implore!"
Quoth the raven, "Nevermore."

"Be that word our sign of parting, bird or fiend!" I shrieked, upstarting--
"Get thee back into the tempest and the Night's Plutonian shore!
Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken!
Leave my loneliness unbroken! -- quit the bust above my door!
Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door"
Quoth the ravenous cop, "Nevermore."

And the raven-haired cop, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my Land Rover's door;
And her eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming.
And the lamplight o'er her streaming throws her shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall I drive drunk---nevermore!

sunny afternoon

save me save me save me save me, please

chowderhead fest part two...

it was weird, like everyone was posing for a spy film... I went to get a picture of Cat Cora and got all these other peeps instead!! As I sat on the bench outside Chowder Hall at the Montecito Cuntry Club, I listened to the birds singing...tweet tweet

I unwittingly spent $65 in support of the Legal Aid Foundation- a nonprofit- because Barbra Streisand told me it was her event and she's top dog at the LAF... I thought it was to see Cat Cora!!

did I tell you I met Babs at the Chowder Festival? when she's not crooning, she's a lawyer...geez these Jewish women lawyers are like frigging Dracula...suck the blood right outta ya! I wonder what sex would be like with one of them...probably pretty weird....should I leave a tip?? or did the $65 cover it...

now my big mistake yesterday is not hitting on one of the foodie gals... there was a few of 'em! and intellectually I think I woulda been ok...but it seems there was more people serving chowder than attending the event! and plenty of wine and beer for the hot sunny afternoon

now I don't know about Cat Cora or her people or why she would do a public event when she's supposed to be so private like when she smacked into another car while driving drunk...maybe she's just on high alert for PR purposes...this was kinda like athe Andy Breitbart luncheon that I attended..the event coordinators were so protective of the image they wanted to present and dissidents like myself were frowned upon...but there was Ashton Kutcher walking around looking for Demi glace! hahahah!!

and there's that look from Mr. Pip Pip! bad fish soup, Rich??

so Tom Ball and Kenny Sultan were setting up in one of the rooms across from the Montecito Room to play the blues.... I think Kenny is the skinny one and Tom is the fat one..Kenny looked kinda stoned and clammy...

but anyway there was lots of wine and beer and John Palminteri was driving around in a golf cart because he caddys on the weekends I've heard for extra income...but he did score a little interview with Cat on KEYT...I think Ellen Goodstein was lying to me..I could've gotten a picture with Cat..she's not Marlene Dietrich you know!

into the mystic

magnificently we will fly....

part one

the Palm and Tom Ball or Kenny Sultan
well I went to attend the Chowder Fest on Sunday at the Montecito Country Club and as usual with these events I go a little early.. I like to wait and catch people as they go in..take some shots...but I don't see anyone famous so I go in and decide to pay $65, wear a red wrist band to walk around and take pictures with a bunch of old moneyed types and some yuppies...geez what a freakin bore this is...where's Wendy and Nipper and Cappello.. I got some questions for them folks!

pip! pip!
so I go in and out of the club rooms and then wait outside in the sun... making myself very conspicious looking..hey there's John Palminteri from KEYT and Tom Ball and Kenny Sultan....we had some laughs and the boys went inside...

so I'm sitting there outside on a bench and in goes that society dude Richard Mineards from the Montecito Journal..all alone.. I go in after him and sneak around and get a pic and he looks at me very a scoutmaster looks at a boy scout..I'd better stay away from Mr Pip Pip for now! boy these guys take this high society stuff pretty seriously!!

ok so I'm watching all the gals..perfumey and pretty...this is non-working class pussy guys and if you get a chance, get some while you can as part of God's plan! you'll never be the same...

so I go inside again and get stopped by a lady who looks more Jewish than Barbra Streisand...geez, I thought she was gonna beat me with her shnoz!! she peppers me with a bunch of questions "who am I why am I taking pictures"....I told her I paid to get in and I'm just taking pictures for my private use..she asks if I have a blog and I say who me?? yeah I tell her...I got a foodie blog... she started getting a bit perturbed because I was being a wiseguy to her.....she says she's Ellen Goodstein from the nonprofit Legal Aid Foundation like I'm supposed to bow or something and this is her private event and wants to know why I'm taking pictures..well I asked the chick before who sold me the ticket if pictures were ok and she said what's the problem..well Ellen had a problem with me..she was looking at me like I was bad debt! I told her I really came to get a picture of Cat Cora and she says "that's not gonna happen" .... I ask "why?" and she says Cat's very private person traveling with her own people so I can't get a picture!! then I ask Ellen if I can take a picture of her and she says very curtly "no".. I told her I had some German in me and that really burned her up!! these folks are soup Nazis!!

Landecker and mom?
WTF! gee, what a bunch of snobs I'm dealing with...then I see David Landecker with some old lady...Dave is famous for swapping price tags years ago at Home Improvement Center so he wouldn't have to pay full price for a pair of pliars..geez, some Jews think they are so entitled!!

well after a few hours, I was done with this nonsense and was getting kinda I left.. I would have stayed for some chowder, but there were too many eyes on me....too many disapproving eyes...

turn turn turn

there is a season....
the Reverend Billy Graham unleashed a bunch of televangelic crackpots in the bible belt and because some Americans are feeble-minded, these folks have made a killing begging for money on TV..sow a seed they say by sending them one hundend dollars, five hundred so they can keep their ministry on the air...and the flock in fear.....Billy Graham is a clown....

and lately this crop of TV preachers has been getting political, warning the followers to vote for Romney by showing how evil Obama is...

I was watching Jack Van Impe and his nutty co-host wife Rexella and, well, it is Halloween and these two are freaks! Rexalla is awesome...a really batshit crazy blonde with a skinny face, lots of plastic work done and she talks like she's five years old and Jack is her daddy...

she says that Obama has let terrorists into the White House, then she turns and asks Jack.."is that really true, tell us about it , Jack?" then Jack starts in with the doomsday stuff and warns that Obama has ties with Hezzbolah and Iran and wants to wipe Christians and Jews from the face of the earth! then he cites some bible passages " nations will be confused" and starts making weird faces and screaming...then he goes back to Rexella who can't blink I noticed due to her too- tight face!!

wipe Christians and Jews from the face of the earth..hmmmm

Jack and Rexy go back and forth in complete nonsensical gibberish with the bible as the centerpiece for their fear....

America has freedom of religion but this ain't no old timey religion, it's a doomsday cult and these folks should be investigated for the money they got coming in, for any tax-exempt status and for just being con artists as are all TV evangelicals.....

from the web:
I'd never heard of
this guy before seeing his program on television the other night, but holy fuck is he spewing some crazy shit. Granted, it's not uniquely crazy -- he kept perseverating on the same one-world government and end-of-times Antichrist nonsense believed so fervently by the nuttier Christian sects and depicted so well in the Left Behind series (haven't read the books, but those movies are creepy) -- but still. I actually had no idea they allowed this insanity on television, let alone on regular channels.

Speaking of insanity, how about that Rexella? The whole program is pretty nuts, but this woman just batshit crazy. Look at those eyes!

Screw the book, Rexxy -- just send me some of whatever you're popping. That said, she does look damned good for being almost 80... I'm guessing those donations have allowed her to hire a pretty good plastic surgeon. Praise Jesus!

21:7 And if a man sell his daughter.....

the bible is a fantastic book full of poetry, metaphors and should be used wisely and if you want to sell me your daughter, we can work out deal....

and me
We're pretty good company
Looking for an island
In our boat upon the sea

WTF??? Santa Barbara city councilman Dale Francisco just saved five eucalyptus trees by the library?? by designating them historic resources!!

I'm floored..I'm flushed...I'm thrilled... thanks Dale!

now I know Dale goes off on tangents sometimes but every now and then does something really brilliant..first thing was letting the hair grow out....then some other things I don't remember but at least he's showing some independence...proof that conservatives are good for something...

and whoever these people are who want to mess up the library with pingpong tables, faux facades or flowery frilly decorations need to knock it off....take a look at this beautiful building for what it is and leave it alone..and leave the eucs alone, too!

why is it everyone editoral writer in the News-Press is a liar? first it was Travis, then Tyler, then Lanny and now Christian nutjob Andy Caldwell...hey.. has anybody actually seen or heard from Terry Tyler since Wendy dumped him from the editorial pages...the question is where did she dump him!

hmmm, I was reading the Pacific Coast Business Times and the name Foundation for Harmony and Happiness rang a bell....I did a story awhile back (c'mon down to my boat baby) on some nonprofits that have boats docked at the Harbor...Channelkeeper has one, and the FOUNDATION FOR HARMONY AND HAPPINESS has a boat named "Casa Del Mar"...

turns out the guy who owns the Casa Del Mar is a Santa Barbara CPA running a scam and funneling money to his phony nonprofit! he was arrested back in 2011...he's got a boat, a mansion in Montecito and was living the life of a bon vivant!

Steve Pybrum was a well-known author who had written books on avoiding marriage problems caused by money. He founded a nonprofit called the Foundation for Harmony and Happiness to provide "counseling" to married couples.

from PCBT: But federal authorities alleged that the foundation was merely a name on the bank accounts where Pybrum, 61, deposited his accounting business income to avoid paying taxes on it. They alleged that the foundation conducted no valid charitable activities and that its income was instead was used to pay Pybrum’s personal expenses, "including renting space in a Montecito mansion and buying a plane, fishing boat and SUV," according to a statement from the IRS.

Pybrum was recently found guilty of tax evasion....

the Foundation for Harmony and Happiness..gimme a break!!

you got me on my knees!!!

oh here's a picture of the lady lawyer who works with Barry Cappello and who both just screwed the taxpayers out of roughly $5 million....she also blames the sheriff for the accident that was caused by a drunk dirver...she looks like a high maintenance piece of ass to wonder Barry looks like he's carrying her water all the time...he's pussy-whipped!!


now, why do lawyers try to suppress evidence? well, it became obvious to me during the Lance hearing....Lance and Genis tried hard to suppress evidence and kept filing motions to supress and dismiss because the evidence was illegally obtained, they argue...

Admissible evidence is evidence which can be brought forward in a court of law to support or undermine a legal case. In order to be considered admissible, evidence must meet certain standards, with the standards being especially high in criminal cases. Disputes over the admissibility of evidence often play a role in major trials, with lawyers from both sides attempting to suppress evidence which does not favor their case, with the goal of weakening the position of the other side.

now if the evidence was benign, then I don't think they would have made such a fuss, but the evidence against Lance was good enough to go to trial until Judge Brian Hill said it's ok for drivers to stop and ponder at a green light for up to 30 seconds....and why should such an activity cause the cops concern on a New Year's Eve?

so of course Lance and Genis didn't want that evidence to reach a jury..and that's why Lance keeps going on Mr. Wimpy's Show proclaiming his innocence....

now according to my sources at the News-Press, Tony DeNunzio's atty, the same Daryll Genis is trying to suppress evidence that Denunzio changed lanes three times without signaling that night he was busted in front of the yuppiemuppies John and Ellen who went crying to Noozhawk who printed the story because well Noozhawk had some drug issues of their own and Billy Mac probably blames the cops for son Jane's Addiction...but that is neither her nor there,,,

the dash cam that everyone wants in all the police cruisers showed the erratic lane changes that would give a cop probable cause to pull DeNunzio over, but Daryll dosen't like that aspect of the dash cam that shows his client is guilty and wants those images suppressed and they got three judges considering this!! if it is granted the case may be dismissed...

a real judge would deny the motion immediately...
what's the good of a dash cam if DUI lawyers get to pick and choose what images they want the jury to see????

it is time for drunks and their lawyers to stumble up to the plate and accept responsibility for their pathetic little lives!!  I am sick of footing the bill for them!!!

the Catcher in the Rye

here comes the catcher, making his play....

ok so I go shopping for stuff at CVS and Vons, two companies who didn't have a plastic bag ban yet..but apparently overnight, the ban took I bought a canvas bag at CVS and carried four items sans bag out of Vons....normally the cute check out girl bags my groceries but this time she just stood there, hands free for 30 you know what she could have done with her hands in 30 seconds...figure it out!  That's the thing about girls. Every time they do something pretty, even if they're not much to look at, or even if they're sort of stupid, you fall half in love with them, and then you never know where the hell you are. Girls. Jesus Christ. They can drive you crazy. They really can.

imagine that..private companies forcing the poor spoiled American consumers to carry their own tote bags instead of just throwing them away inconvenient

next I go get gas and now they ask me if I'm a Von's Club member in addition to the zip code I have to provide...why do I have to tell them if I'm a Von's Club member to get gas so I said no even though I am

ok then I hear the great catcher from the 1975 Red Sox/Reds game Carleton Fisk was busted for DUI in Chicago...go back to Boston, get sober and coach or something.....God knows the Red Sox need some help!!

then a Christian GOP Senate candidate in Indiana (no surprise there) says a pregnancy resulting from rape is in God's plan...more proof that organized religion makes stupid people stupidly stupider

then I see Noozhawk for some reason pulled the story about the wrong way drunk driver who somehow got the family he plowed into to blame the sheriff and recoup $4 million from the tax payers thanks to the baraccuda of Santa Barbara, Barry Cappello....

You know that song 'If a body catch a body comin' through the rye'? I'd like — "
"It's 'If a body meet a body coming through the rye'!" old Phoebe said. "It's a poem. By
Robert Burns."

"I know it's a poem by Robert Burns."
She was right, though. It is "If a body meet a body coming through the rye." I didn't know it then, though.

"I thought it was 'If a body catch a body,'" I said. "Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around — nobody big, I mean — except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff — I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I'd do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be. I know it's crazy."

jam up and jelly tight

eye of newt, toe of frog, tail of rat and hair of dog... and probably some corn syrup

ok my blood is boiling like a witches' brew in the cauldren of life....the story of Barry Cappello representing the family who sued the County of SB because their relatives were killed by a drunk driver and somehow the officer on patrol was negligent as to the way he handled the dumbass drunk driving down the highway the wrong way..

this is what I've been writing about for so long..the goddam drunks who blame the cops who arrested them!! let's see I wonder who was on the jury-Peter Lance, Tony DeNunzio, Wendy, Travis or Joe-???

jeezusfucking christ I've seen it all now....
ok who was the ghost judge and who were the ghost jurors..really..that's what I wanna know..who are these spineless cocktail swilling trustfund punks....probably winery owners or brewery people...ooooooh, I don't know why the county caved...I'll find out eventually...this is a travesty!!

now look at this: Barry Cappello's law firm was recently honored by the the Legal Aid Foundation...celebrity chef/drunk driver Cat Cora is partnering with the Legal Aid Foundation to judge a soup that is a motherfucking far as I can tell the Legal Aid Foundation is made up of a bunch of money hungry Jews who were bred from birth to pick your pocket and clog the courts defending wealthy miscreants like Wendy McCuckoo from the working class...GEEZ!!!

ok so we got a Chowder Festival and Iron Chef Cat Cora will be judging the best fish my auntie in Boston used to make the best clam chowda...milk and cream and potatoes and onions and big sweet clams always served with love....and she could belt down a few beers every now and then...I was a kid and watched her every movement because I loved her to death..and she never drove drunk and crashed into another car...

but Cat Cora did..ok Cat's a foodie and paid her debt I guess but I wonder if they're gonna slip some brandy or wine in the chowder to yuppie it up a bit..and then Cat starts her tastin' and she likes it and she has a few bowls of stewed chowda and all of a sudden she's tipsy again and she drives to the Brewhouse to have a beer or two with Tony Denunzio! then they both get clobbered by a Santa Brouhaha cop!!


Food and Home Magazine presents the 3rd Annual Santa Barbara Chowder Fest at the Montecito Country Club on October 28 from noon till 4pm. Come sample delectable chowders as they vie for Chowder Champ and the coveted People's Choice Award.
Iron Chef Cat Cora will be on hand to judge. "I’m honored to partner with my local Legal Aid Foundation for the Santa Barbara Chowder Fest," said Cora. Restaurant Guy John Dickson will serve as a second judge. This fun tasting event includes fabulous wine from Santa Barbara County wineries; delicious brews from various local microbreweries and a sampling of French truffles, Vermont's finest cheese and a host of other goodies. Live music is being provided by Tom Ball and Kenny Sultan!

well, there's three more guys are on my radar: John Dickson, the "restaurant  guy" who recently has shown up in the News-Press alot and praised the Dinesh D'Souza film about commie Obama..I've said it before that Dinesh was a fraud and you can google him for the latest in faux Christianity...Dickson sounds like an airhead Nipper wannabe!!

and Tom Ball and Kenny Sultan, whose down home blues must only sound good when you're drunk....I was never a fan of these guys...a couple of aging lounge lizards
and the weird thing is you gotta pay $65 to see all this at the Montecito Country Club....

I just might have to crash this party...

rockin' down the highway

alcohol justice

oh, so if you get drunk and drive the wrong way on the highway and kill and maim people, you can hire Wendy's ex lawyer Barry Capello who will get you off with a multi-million dollar award by suing the county of Santa Barbara and blaming the sheriff for not training his officers on how to deal with a drunk wrong way driver?????

the story was in Noozhawk...

WTF is that about....and the county fell for it and has to pay it any wonder they are in debt??

I can't believe this.... I heard about the accident a few years ago but never in my wildest dreams would think the sheriff could be held responsible for a driver driving drunk the wrong way down the highway...

what kind of enabling system of justice do we have here?? Capello-what a piece of crap you are and what a bigger piece of crap the drunk driver is,
Richard Rodriguez..
that's tax money going to support drunk drivers who kill people...

Blue Christmas

a blue blue blue Christmas..

it's not Christmas..not even close and how I wish the old Santa statue was back on Santa Claus Lane waving at the passers-by..oh I know we've become more cynical nowadays but maybe they could have just left Santa and instead of waving at motorists, they could replaster his hand so that he's flipping everyone off!!

but I guess not...Halloween is just around the corner and so far it's been a spooky month.. I must see four films everyone Halloween..the Haunting, Freaks and the Exorcist and Hocus Pocus...then I'm happy..

ok so the reason I'm writing today is every year on the front page of the News-Press , right around Christmas, there's a story about the weird nonprofit Unity Shoppe and it's a tale of woe...I thinks it's a ploy for more money but it seems these folks are always crying about something or someone doing them wrong when all they try to do is help the poor and needy families..happens every year, on the front page of the News-Press....hmmmmm

the Unity Shoppe and Telethon used to be a good thing...Kenny Loggins and Paula Lopez singing together for the holidays...hey looking good Paula...but don't get too skinny!! and the years past had KEYT lading the telethon then everything changed when the stupid News-Press and people like Dr. Laura and Nipper were showing up looking like idiots...and then Nipper hires Peter Lance to do a hit job on the Ensemble Theatre, sworn enemies of the Unity Shoppe and the News-Press

from a few years ago: Lance had a two part investigative series in the News-Press on the messy real estate brawl between the Unity Shoppe and Ensemble Theatre and the Victoria Street Theatre they'll remember in the end the Unity Shoppe had to buy another place to hold their "non-profit" telethons ...the price tag was in the millions and you bought it for them!!!

but man oh man was this N-P story poorly written..I could have done a better was disjointed, full of non sequiturs, lets go hunting....emails from the folks involved that Lance tried to read every possible shady motive into.....well it seems this year, the Unity Shoppe had to cancel the elaborate telethon due to lack of funds...and the News-Press had the story... of course they blamed the economy and unions for it, but I think people are just getting wise to all the scams, all the money filtering thru non-profits, all the CEOs getting rich, and the Unity Shoppe unwise real estate purchase....I could have predidcted that when the Wendy and Nipper got involved, it would kill the charity...then Dr. Laura showed up and it lost all credibilty...and poor Kenny Loggins just stood there and let it happen instead of bustin' some rhymes....last year the money was slow coming in, so the Chumash stepped in to save the day with a huge donation from all the gambling profits!'s too ironic for me to explain now....but the Unity Shoppe lost focus when it tried to hitch its wagon to the News-Press....the results have been disasterous....

and it sounds familiar: the Lance series about the Unity Shoppe/Ensemble Theater was before he got arrested for DUI and we know how that multi-series "investigation" of his own arrest made it into the News-Press...Nipper was grooming him as a News-Press reporter!!!

so this year Tom Reed, the socialite executive director of the Unity Shoppe, blames construction at Victoria Hall for blocking his loading zone..he complains that everything is "deteriorating around him" and he "really doesn't know what to do"..

do what you always do Tom, cry to Wendy!!

sorry, but this year I BOYCOTT the UNITY SHOPPE!!!

some days you eat the bear

some days the bear eats you....

it's been reported that middle aged Wendy- types are walking their dogs on the trails around town and leaving plastic bags full of dog shit like Easter's like a little Easter egg hunt only instead of painted eggs, you find little plastic bags full of dog shit...and lots of them..

I find this incomprehensible so I may need to enter rehab soon..the things I'm having to process lately and make sense out of are just too much to bear...hey do bears shit in the woods??

I have never taken a dump in the woods...I've peed in the bushes a few times, but I've regulated my BM so that...well, it's almost perfect...besides I've never spent any significant time in the wilderness but when I do, I never go up Shit Creek without a paddle!!

but anyway... back to the Wendy-types and their designer dogs...ooooooooh, I do not like these people one little bit..they have neurotic dogs that are pampered all day long or cooped up somewhere, then they go on a power walking hike and the dogs don't know a trail from another dog's asshole, so they get all excited and stupid meanwhile the coyotes are watching and laughing at them...

keep these mutts off the trails!!
coyotes are real dogs so I have no issue with coyote scat...I've seen it at the Bluffs and it's obvious that coyotes eat very healthy...the scat is reddish with seeds and grasses and is the consistancy of clay...however, domestic dogs are very different...their waste is gushy and gooey and stinks and as a kid, I stepped in's worse now...what with all the silly dog food commercials..

oh, now I see they have Gourmet Dog Food! WTF?? these people take their dogs out to dinner, these Wendy-types, the they feed them this gourmet junk that people would eat..then they get up the next day after sleeping with their dogs and go for a hike and they take little plastic bags and after the dog craps they pick it up, put it in the bag, and drop the bag on the ground....then when I go for a hike on the Bluffs in Carp, I find little bags of dog shit on the ground, left by self-entitled Wendy types..this is all simply the theater of the absurd!!!
these people are worthless pieces of shit!!

To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight. (morality is in the eye of the abuser)

Note that the Boy Scout Oath has traditionally been considered to have three promises. Those three promises are delineated by the semicolons in the Oath, which divide it into three clauses. The three promises of the Scout Oath are, therefore:
Duty to God and country
(and scoutmaster)
Duty to other people, and
(if your scoutmaster gets in your sleeping bag with ya, it's your duty to let him!)
Duty to self (the scoutmaster will teach you)

DUTY TO GOD AND COUNTRY: Your family and religious leaders teach you to know and serve God. By following these teachings, you do your duty to God (the horny bastard!)

Men and women of the past worked to make America great, and many gave their lives for their country. By being a good family member and a good citizen, by working for your country's good and obeying its laws, you do your duty to your country. Obeying the Scout Law means living by its 12 points. (the better you perform, the more points you get with the scoutmaster and GOD)

DUTY TO OTHER PEOPLE: Many people need help. A cheery smile and a helping hand make life easier for others. By doing a Good Turn daily and helping when you're needed, you prove yourself a Scout and do your part to make this a better world. (in other words always let the scoutmaster reach around when he wants to make love)

DUTY TO SELF: Keeping yourself physically strong means taking care of your body. Eat the right foods and build your strength. Staying mentally awake means learn all you can, be curious, and ask questions. Being morally straight means to live your life with honesty, to be clean in your speech and actions, and to be a person of strong character (in other words, the scoutmaster likes young and tender bodies!!)

these scumbag scoutmasters are now on my radar....

Barbara Ann

you got me rockin' and a-reelin'

a few weeks ago, I had a dream...

a very vivid dream that I remodeled my bedroom in everything was bedspread was red and white striped with Barbi pillows..I was relaxing watching a big TV way across the room.. I was watching a show about Barbi..on the wall were pictures of Barbi and I had placed a bunch of stuffed Barbi dolls tastefully around the TV console...just then a woman, Ann Romney, walks in my room and sits down in a big comfy chair next to the bed and watches the big TV with me...we talk in muttered dream tones but then, as clear as a bell, I tell her how much I admire Barbi and that I think she's a great business woman!

then I'm driving with a bunch of other cars down an old coast rural road, one that's been in my dreams's just beautiful..there's a bunch of people on horses and we keep having to slow down or stop to let them pass....

does anyone have an extra Barbi dolls??

well, since asking that question, yesterday I received a catalogue...a Barbi Collector catalogue! I swear to God!! I don't know who sent it to me but I think it was Ann Romney..actually I'm hoping it's Ann...the catalogue is full of Barbi in cool outifts, sexy outfits and there's even a black Barbi should I start dreaming about Michele...but Ann Romney and!

Summer in the City

walkin' on a sidewalk hotter than a match head.....

well it is very hot and humid and when I go outside to work on something, I sweat and have to stop and take a shower....I've been working on a leak lately...someone's water heater TPR valve (temperature pressure relief) is dribbling out the discharge line and I can't find who it belongs to, so I had to hook up a little plumbing line to divert the water away from the building..the water discharges outside from a 3/4 in pvc pipe...

I checked nearly everyone's water heater and find that some lines have been buried in the stucco and discharges to nothing except the wall! what a mess!!  and I have no schematics of these damn buildings!

so the plumbers came in to bore thru the wall and extend the drain lines...$$$$$...geez, dumbass contractors just stuccoed over the discharge line many years ago!! so I finally find the leaky water heater..had to jump over the neighbor's wall and shut off their water inlet for a minute and that stopped the drip outside, so the lesson is check your water heater TPR valve every now and then..sometimes they crud up with deposits or whatever....

and you'll make my life alot easier...and remember, water is life so don't waste it... esp during fire season!!

postcards from the edge

send this photo as a postcard?? way to go EdHAT!!

hey Noozhawk come you're not supporting this guy..I mean he's a dog lover..oh wait, I just heard he crawled over to the News-Press and asked Lord of the Flies Don Katich if he could write a 50 part series on his arrest..he requested Peter Lance ghost write it!!

the SBPD responded to the call but made one of the  guy's dogs bite a cop out of fright, so I think the drunk is gonna sue the SBPD for abusing his pooch!!

Source: SBPD

Stephen Glen Beniak, age 60, of Santa Barbara was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, felony DUI (three priors within ten years), resisting or delaying an officer, and driving on a suspended license after a neighbor saw him drive and then pass out behind the wheel of his car. When contacted by officers at the front door of his residence Beniak released a canine upon them, which bit one of the officers on the hand as he backed away.

On October 14, 2012 at 5:17 p.m., Santa Barbara Police Department Officers Allan Tuazon and Megan Harrison responded to a call of a subject passed out inside of a black Audi parked near the intersection of Lincoln Road and Hope Avenue. Upon arrival they located the suspect vehicle, which was unoccupied, and contacted two witnesses, the reporting party and an off-duty SBPD officer, both of whom are neighbors of the suspect, Beniak.

The investigation indicates the following. At approximately 5:00 p.m., the reporting party observed Beniak drive his car on Hope Avenue and then park across the street from his residence at 3801 Lincoln Road. The reporting party continued to her residence, however upon going back outside a few minutes later observed Beniak passed out behind the wheel of his vehicle. The reporting party called 911 and also contacted another neighbor, an off-duty SBPD officer. The off-duty officer walked to Beniak's location and also saw him passed out in his car. The officer smelled a strong odor of alcohol emanating from Beniak and suspected that he was intoxicated. The officer removed Beniak's keys from his vehicle's ignition, for Beniak's safety and that of others, and then backed away and waited for uniformed SBPD personnel to arrive. Prior to the arrival of on- duty officers Beniak woke and stumbled into his residence.

 another victory for freedom and liberty to drive least he made it home!

mercy mercy me

oh, things ain't what they used to be...
so I 'm trying to find out the reason that the State Parks people  are chopping my beloved eucalyptus trees down at the beach and I email Salud who normally is very prompt with my concerns but this time no reply...

next I email the Environmental Defense Center and a nice lady lawyer gets back to me in a day and says she talked with the parks guy and the reason they are chopping my fucking beloved eucalyptus trees down in Carpinteria is because a few branches have fallen on tents...I held back my laughter while she told me this....then she says some folks have tripped and sued the parks....

so the decision was to cut these 50 plus many years old trees down and replace with a few Sycamores..the nice lady says the sycamores are native and the parks around California are going for the Native theme...sycamores are lovely trees and they line the banks of Rincon Creek, but they do very well with the Eucalyptus over there...and if you put a euc and a syc side by side, the hawks will nest in the euc everytime because they are bigger and the euc fragrance is pleasing to the baby other words, both the eucs and sycs are what make California great for wildlife!!

but when the nice lady lawyer started praising the native only mindset, I politely told her thanks and tried to hang up, but she kept asking me if I had any I told her (nicely) the Parks guys fed her some USDA prime bullshit and I don't believe in all the native hogwash..I told her if the butterflies and hawks and owls like the eucs, then that's good enough for me...and she got the message and finally we ended the conversation...native plants behave just too nice and are very boring and don't thrive in the really gnarly areas...a mix is much better....salt cedar and coastal oaks do well together but the City of Carp is getting rid of the salt cedar at the Bluffs

so that's it..California Parks and the Nature Con have killed thousands of plants and animals in the name of biodiversity and now California is going to be turned into a "Native Only Theme Park" by a bunch of yuppies...

but before the yuppies  invaded, there was this guy, who sent me an interesting email:
NOT about biodiversity- the slaughter of the owls was to cut down on the manpower needed to maintain a conservancy later- more money for the top people if they do not have to pay people to maintain the area later. Now they were getting paid to cut down a little but they tried to eliminate all so no outlay later. The Nature Conservancy has killed billions of animals up front so the top guys make more money later due to lesser costs of maintaining the conservancies.

something about the iceplant there in Carpinteria- in the late 1950s I put in all the iceplant in the mouth of the creek (to increase the water flow rate in the channels that I created by not putting the seeds where I wanted the channels), the State of California Department Of Fish And Game gave me the seeds. UCSB has said that all the iceplant there is a native variety that they put there under a grant- but in fact they put in only 3 or 4 1 foot by 1 foot patches of their"native variety". In other words UCSB scammed somebody for a huge grant, then put in the little I said and then lied about
putting in all of it- that leaves much left over for pay raises for the top guys in the department!

Small bit of history- George Allan Hancock, a big-time oilman, gave the entire Rincon Beach property to the county for a park- after he built a few homes there for a few friends

so I went outside for walk and picked some fennel from the side of the road.....and thanked God for the non native plants that give this state some character....

Native Theme Park my ass....what good is the EDC if they don't defend the environment??

Monday, October 15, 2012


it's been rumored that these jet contrails are a mixture of ice and poison and a government plot to make people sick and die...... a certain group is being targeted, if you are on that list, I'd be careful if I were you... very careful....see you later....much later!

4-6- niner...

Tombstone Blues

the sun's not yellow, it's chicken
it seems alcohol has created a sub-culture of zombies!

I started this blog to shed some light on the lies coming out of the News-Press editorial pages when Wendy Nipper and Travis took over...I wanted to take a satirical look at these folks and give them some of their own medicine...I wanted to see if Wendy and Nipper would send their lawyers over to try to remove my blog like they tried with others who poked fun at them but of course that didn't happen and now one of their lawyers, Barry Capello is suing Wendy....isn't it ironic!!

now Travis was Wendy's gay Indian prince and he was busted for DUI in 2006..driving up a one way street, the wrong way..0.23 was his BAC

I remember Travis had a radio show on Wendy1290AM and he and Joe Armendariz were talking about their DUIs saying it was actually a good thing!!!

and when I heard this: With McCaw and her boyfriend – the paper's restaurant critic – now copublishers, editor Jerry Roberts was ordered to kill a story about the editorial page editor's drunk-driving sentence...I knew that Wendy was not playing with a full deck..and she simply does not understand the working friends, she's a mess!! as are Lance, Steepleton and Genis..

ok, people sue municipalites all the time and Santa Barbara is no exception...mostly folks are looking for a monetary settlement to sooth some grievance, real or imagined...and any investigation of a cop has to insure that cop's rights are not violated either...I kept hearing about the officers' Bill of Rights so I checked it out....

The Law Enforcement Officers' Bill of Rights (LEOBR or LEOBoR) is intended to protect American law enforcement personnel from unreasonable investigation and persecution caused by extraordinary circumstances in the official performance of their duties

Law enforcement officers arguably have one of the toughest jobs in the nation. They alone are charged with keeping the streets and neighborhoods of this country safe from crime. Every day, police officers put their lives on the line—life and death decisions are in the job description. Because of the enormous responsibility that comes with a badge, law enforcement officers are held to a much higher standard of personal and professional conduct—as well they should be. This higher standard and increased visibility renders police officers vulnerable to false accusations from the criminal element and others in society whose sole motivation in making these allegations is to disrupt law enforcement activities.

"whose sole motivation in making these allegations is to disrupt law enforcement activities"..does that sound familiar? that is the old refrain from LAnce and the News-Press we are hearing over and over again!!!

Peter Lance had so prejudiced his case against Officer Beutel with his egomaniacal factually- challenged series, that any and all accusations against the officer are moot fiction....I think Kasi Beutel should thank Lance for that!!!

but as the News-Press continues to try to disrupt law enforcement, especially regarding drunk drivers, the motivation becomes clear...It's hard to imagine that anyone would be pro-drunk driver, but a number of critics say it's outrageous for "first-time" offenders to have their driving privileges curbed after making just one mistake. To them, it seems heavy-handed – another example of government trampling of individual rights....

If you're in a good mood," says von Wiesenberger, "champagne makes you happy. If you're in a bad mood, it still makes you smile." WTF???

the Indochine Incident
now to Scott Steepleton's biased story about the Indochine nightclub...

the stars of this little melodrama are two District Attorneys, Drew Josfan and Drusan Pavlovic, who, in 2008, came up from Los Angeles to attend a seminar in Santa Barbara..later that night they hit the legendary SB bar scene..not uncommon at all.. as we all know, that's where the cops spend a lot of their time and your tax money dealing with intoxicated people!!

well there was a long convoluted case where the cops were called by the Indochine staff because Josfan and Pavlovic were drunk and disorderly, harassing women and the bar of the guys allegedly exposed himself but Scott forgot to include all the details in his story....the cops were called and they responded and arrested the DAs who then filed lawsuits protesting the arrest and claiming police brutality like a couple of big babies....when Steepleton interviewed Pavlovic, I couldn't believe what a weenie the guy was saying he loved to party and drink liquor, but was so offended when the Indochine staff called the cops...but Pavlovic was sentenced to some community service....

as for Josfan, here's the whole story which was later settled AFTER FOUR YEARS for much less than Josfan was seeking.... and nobody's civil rights were abused and there was no police brutality...

 The opinion of the court was delivered by: A. Howard Matz United States District Judge


The Court having been advised by the parties that the above-entitled action has been settled;

IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that this case is removed from this Court's active caseload without prejudice to the right, upon good cause shown within 30 days, to reopen this action if settlement is not consummated.

and Josfan was suspended for something.. I couldn't determine what....but he spends lots of time getting in trouble it seems!!

Petition of DREW JOSFAN for a hearing on his suspension not to exceed thirty (30) days following the judgment of a criminal matter, effective May 19, 2008, from the position of Deputy District Attorney III, Office of the District Attorney,

and I'm in the kitchen with the Tombstone blues....maybe the only way to cut thru all this bullshit is to have no laws and let frontier justice rule...if you crash into me while drunk, I just whip out the Buntline and shoot you..maybe in the arms so you can't raise a in the days of Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday!'re no daisy.....but I'm your Huckleberry

just give me some truth... 

"The things that will destroy America are peace at any price,
prosperity at any cost, safety first instead of duty first,
the love of soft living, and the get-rich-quick theory of life."
Theodore Roosevelt

in the olden days, they used to drill holes in your head to release evil spirits...yesterday I went to Home Improvement and bought a drill....

I was glad to see the cops issue a statement of support for Officer Kasi Beutel and call out the News-Press on its yellow journalism...the News-Press is the most corrupt business in town, so them calling the cops corrupt is ridiculous... and it's the only local business that got caught with child porn on their computers!! Wendy?? Nipper?? oh, I remember, you blamed someone else....a recurring theme in all this

but I was shocked I say shocked to see the Santa Barbara Police Dept still uses polygraph least that's what the City website says..

Q. Is a Polygraph admissible in court

A.Generally, the answer is "No". However, if there is a stipulation by the defense and prosecution to admit the results, the court will then consider the results of the polygraph. The Santa Barbara Police Department often conducts polygraph examinations that are requested by both the prosecution and agreed to by defense counsel to verify the truth on many cases...   

guys, you need to throw these machines into the ocean and create artificial reefs which is a much better use for them....I've said it before and I'll say it again..there is no machine that can tell if you are lying..none nada zip....any basic psychology course will tell you that... and defense lawyers still use polygraphs....THE JUSTICE SYSTEM NEEDS TO CLEAN UP ITS ACT!! get rid of the polygraphs!!
but if you are gonna allow lie detectors, the you should also allow Ouija boards and Magic 8 Balls!!

in vino veritas

speaking of psychology, a Ph.D. from Pacifica University in Summerland was busted for DUI in SB! of course all folks are innocent until I say they're guilty...but just another one to watch out for when you're on your bike...bad girl!! Pacifica treaches depth psychology..Jungian archetypes and other cool stuff..psychology teaches us THE TRUTH about ourselves so you would think the most fundamental thing to learn is don't drive drunk!! I wonder if there's an archetype for that??

never believe what you read in the newspapers....
speaking of bad girls, another young Turk is suing the City of SB and the cops who arrested her for DUI...this chick sounds like Amanda Bynes! more tax money going to babysit the drunks!!!

Brittney Cotledge v. City of Santa Barbara et alPlaintiff:
Britteny Cotledge
City of Santa Barbara, Kyle Crooks, Does, Chief Cam Sanchez and Officer Aaron Tudor
Case Number:
October 9, 2012
California Central District Court
Presiding Judge:
Michael R. Wilner
Nature of Suit
Civil Rights - Other Civil Rights

oh gosh, here we go again.. I can see another Tony Denuzio scenerio coming down the pike...remember poor Tony was just another innocent victim of police abuse....poor little Tony is such an angel and the yuppiemuppies in town flocked to his defense with Noozhawk leading the squawks....then as time went on it was revealed that Tony was driving drunk, driving on a suspended license, was found guilty of battering a teenager and hitting his ex wife....a lovely guy..after all these incidents were brought to light, Noozhawk stopped defending him openly, anyway...

now let's see what kinda gal Britteny Cotledge is..if she's got Darryl Genis for a lawyer, she's gotta be a nut..and wasn't she the same gal who threatened a lawsuit last year, but her boyfriend said she was belligerent during the God these DUI attys are such bloodsuckers!! anything for a buck....

this story about Britteny Cotledge was written by Scott Steepleton and was on the front page of the News-Press... and on page A10 Scott dredges up another story about a couple of guys,  two District Attys from Los Angeles who got drunk and caused a ruckus at the Indochine bar in Santa Barbara in 2008.....he was trying to claim the SB cops beat up the suspects..the story that Scott told conflicts with the actual civil minutes of the case...

After passing about 20 minutes at the second bar, Plaintiff and Pavlovic decided to leave and go to Indochine. SUF ¶ 9. Sometime after arriving at Indochine, Plaintiff went into the bathroom and telephoned a friend. SUF ¶ 10. Plaintiff then went looking for Pavlovic and found him in an outdoor area of the nightclub. SUF ¶ 11. Pavlovic handed Plaintiff a drink and then, within seconds, Gomez (Indochine's "bouncer") approached Plaintiff and told him that Plaintiff had to get Pavlovic out of the bar. SUF ¶ 12. Meanwhile, George (Indochine's manager) called the Santa Barbara Police Department to report an ongoing disturbance involving Plaintiff and Pavlovic. SUF ¶ 16. George gave physical descriptions of two men, who George reported were harassing female customers and refusing to leave the nightclub.

I'll delve into the details later.... DREW JOSFAN v. INDOCHINE, et al.

now of course I support Officer Beutel, Officer Corbett and Officer Tudor and the other cops who deal with these spoiled brats who refuse to take any personal responsibility and who waste my tax money...I would much rather have Officer Tudor patrolling the streets than guys like Tony DeNunzio driving on them!!

but hey, when you deal with and arrest drunks, you're gonna ruffle some feathers!! GOOD JOB SBPD!!

somebody's watching you

the question is should we all be held to the same low standards as the News-Press?

News-Press hiring Aryan youth??
according to a LINKEDIN profile, the News-Press has a gal who attended Biola University working as a copy editor... she calls herself a "professional grammar Nazi" and spends lots of time tweeting...
kill/kidnap/rape is an amusing subject line??
there's a small (Aryan) Christian university called Biola that's got a little scandal going on...I heard about this a few months back but if you attend Biola, you may not have pre-marital sex or be a homo..but according to MSNBC, there's a "Biola Queer Underground"....

All members of the clandestine group remain anonymous, but that didn't stop them from reportedly posting flyers around the Biola University campus which read: "We want to bring to light the presence of the LGBTQ community at Biola. Despite what some may assume, there are Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transgender, and Queers at Biola. We are Biola's students, alumni, employees, and fellow followers of Christ. We want to be treated with equality and respected as another facet of Biola's diversity." An official website has also been launched.

 Like many schools rooted in evangelical Christianity, Biola has a code of standards that includes prohibitions on sex outside of marriage and same-sex relationships, according to MSNBC.

prohibition of sex outside marriage?? I didn't know so many students were married!!

ok so Santa Barbara and Guadalupe will need to spend money to install cameras in all their police cars so that when the cops stop drunk drivers, we can all watch..we all watched when Tony Denunzio got stopped..Tony is still in court on various and sundry charges because he can't control himself and I get to pay for it..the Grand Jury suggested the cameras after Lance cried about it...

I don't think cameras are gonna stop drunk drivers..this is just a measure to make the anti cop union folks feel secure..

now this all makes no sense to me because when I was attending the Lance hearings last year, I could not take pictures and they didn't have cameras in the court room....they weren't allowed..had they been allowed, folks would have seen all the disruptions by Lance and Genis and their buddies like Mr.Wimpy and the Mexican dude with the ponytail, Cruzito

these disruptions are every bit as important to see as any dash cam when they allow me to take pictures inside court, I will support dash cams..this is a never before seen picture of babes outside the courtroom that should've been taken inside the courtroom, multiple times.....where's the Grand Jury's concern about that?? about my rights??

until then it's all a sham..but the dash cameras will provide some entertainment value.

and now we have a new News-Press crisis: Brunch with the Cops....apparently Scott thinks Cam Sanchez's absence from the event is a conspiracy of some sort wrapped in turmoil....he claims Cam and the officers have been infighting without any proof whatsoever!

this is not news, it's opinion so I edited it for Scott...then Scott says at the end of the story that there's really no conspiracy and the Police Foundation guys are thankful for the Chief's involvement over the years...unbelieveable..Scott..I'm sorry you have inoperable stupidity!

ok some more dumb pong at the library.. how cosmopolitan..the Independent reports no way!! I guess that makes me an aggregator citing the Indie....

and Providence Hall is Kathy Ireland's Christian school in Santa Barbara...remember God gave Kathy the strength to perform on Dancing with the Stars so who knows what He can do for you! go to their open house!!

and tell 'em Mick sent ya!
