I’m going to blow your fucking brains out.  –  “Deputy” Rodriguez

It’s been a few years since YouTube showed me an interesting Halloween video, so I was quite pleased to be offered this one last week!  The links above it were provided by C.J. Ciaramella, Cop Crisis (x3), Missy Mariposa, and Walter Olson, in that order.

I find paywalls distasteful, and so many people find this blog valuable as a resource I just can’t bring myself to install one.  Furthermore, I find ad delivery services (whose content I have no say over) even more distasteful.  But as I’m now semi-retired from sex work, I can’t self-sponsor this blog by myself any longer.  So if you value my writing enough that you would pay to see it if it were paywalled, please consider subscribing; there are four different levels to fit all budgets.  Or if that doesn’t work for you, please consider showing your generosity with a one-time donation; you can Paypal to maggiemcneill@earthlink.net or else email me at the same address to make other arrangements.  Thanks so much!

A story should have a beginning, a middle and an end – but not necessarily in that order.  –  Jean-Luc Godard

My online friend Patrick, late of the Popehat blog and creator of the hilarious DPRK News parody Twitter account, passed away of longstanding health problems last week.  There is nothing I could say which would express the grief of those who knew him as well as Ken White’s eulogy, so I’ll leave it at that.  I don’t know what sort of music he liked, so I’ll honor his fondness for the weird with this unusual cover of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” (which is still not as strange as the last one).  The video was provided by Mike Siegel, who also supplied “aliens”, and the other links are from Mirriam Zary, Yasmin Nair, Fiona Harrigan, Mark Bennett, C.J. Ciaramella, and Popehat, in that order.

I know you’re here to shoot me.  –  Dante Kittrell

Lamont Dozier penned so many Motown hits it would be too difficult to pick one as a memorial, so I instead chose to feature this novelty song he recorded himself using the stage name “Lamont Anthony”; the song was later re-released with different lyrics, presumably due to copyright issues.  The links above the video were provided by Jesse Walker, Cop Crisis (x3), Jesse again (x2), and Scott Greenfield, in that order.

Sulu (George Takei): I’ll save you, fair maiden!
Uhura (Nichelle Nichols): Sorry, neither.

Nichelle Nichols, who passed away a week ago today, first entered show business as a singer, and she performed in several first-season episodes; this video features “Beyond Antares” from “The Conscience of the King”.  The links above it were provided by Dave Krueger; Cop Crisis; Franklin Harris; Scott Greenfield; Franklin again, and Furrygirl; Mike Siegel; and Kevin Wilson, in that order.

That was…unjust and…un-fucking-called-for.  –  one cop to another

I wasn’t particularly a fan of the Judds, but I doubt Naomi Judd ever did anything nasty enough to deserve prohibitionist nincompoop Ashley as a daughter; fortunately her singing partner was her older daughter, Wynonna.  I don’t recall who shared the first item above the video, but the others were provided by Dan Savage, Billy Binion, Popehat, and Cop Crisis (x3), in that order.

We’re going to fuck you up.  –  NYPD cop to random bystander

Everyone knows “The Pink Panther Theme”, but fewer remember Mancini’s theme for the second Inspector Clouseau movie, A Shot in the Dark; here’s the title sequence from the film, introducing the animated Inspector character who went on to star in his own cartoon series, which used this piece of music as its theme.  The links above it were provided by Franklin Harris, Popehat, Cop Crisis (x3), Mike Siegel, and Phoenix Calida, in that order.

You’re lucky I don’t get out of this car and beat your ass.  –  Ronald Serpico

Though to my adult ear this song is terribly silly, I quite liked it when it came out.  Of course I was just a child at the time, and it appealed to my dyed-in-the-wool lack of respect for authority and my growing rebelliousness.  And since C.W. McCall didn’t exactly have a string of hits, here we are.  The links above it were provided by ClarissaFranklin Harris, Cop Crisis, Katherine Mangu-Ward, Cop Crisis again (x2), and Tim Cushing, in that order.

Where is the baby pit bull?  –  cop, during no-knock raid

I’m really annoyed that The Steven Banks Show, an extremely funny comedy produced by my home-town PBS station, WYES, has never been released on DVD.  To give you a taste, here’s the show’s soundtrack album (which I own on CD, naturally).  The links above the video were provided by Mike Siegel, Franklin Harris, Cop Crisis, Jesse Walker, Cop Crisis again, and Amy Alkon, in that order.

It’s called silly string. It’s silly.  –  Suzanne Johnson

As one who appreciates both Doctor Who and Jacques Brel, I found this extremely funny; I hope you do as well.  The links above it were provided by David Ley, Franklin Harris, Scott Greenfield, Walter Olson, Jesse Walker, and Cop Crisis (x2), in that order.

Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.  –  P.J. O’Rourke

I’ve heard these impressions before, but they’re really quite remarkable; Bowie was a man of any talents!  This video was provided by Franklin Harris, and the links above it by Cop Crisis, Walter Olson, Dave Krueger, Emma Evans, Cop Crisis again and Dave Krueger again, in that order.
