Links #243

A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory.  –  Leonard Nimoy

Sometimes it’s easy to find two videos for these columns, and sometimes it’s difficult; this week was the latter, and since I’m finding that happening much more often of late I’m going to stop fighting it.  If there are two, well and fine; if there’s only one, though, that will be fine, too.  This week’s sole specimen was contributed by Mistress Matisse; the links above it were provided by Eddie Cunningham  (“Sweden”), Grace (“police state”), Wendy Lyon (“message”), Rick Horowitz  (“fear”), and Radley Balko (“together”).

I am outraged that Mr. Alexander for two and a half decades failed to take this matter seriously.  –  Judge Kathleen McCarthy

It’s not often that we have a tie for the most links, but we do this week.  Radley Balko provided everything down to the first video, and Jesse Walker the second video plus “rumor” and “clowns”.  The other links were provided by Grace  (“trigger”), Elizabeth N. Brown (“facts”), Cop Block (“thanks”), Angela Keaton  (“mean”), and Nun Ya (“ANY”).

When the officer released her neck, Ms. Callaway gasped for air.  She could not see because there was a bag over her head, but she felt the weight of a boot in the crook of her arm, which, along with the rest of her body, was still tied to the chair.  Ms. Callaway was suspected of committing a misdemeanor.

Last week I mentioned that Mistress Matisse (who, BTB, provided the first video below) says the universe put her in my life to bring me more fun and silliness.  So this week I’m repaying her a little with the second video.  Everything above the first one is from Radley Balko, and the links between the videos are from Wendy Lyon (“Swedish”), Grace (“voluntary”), Angela Keaton (“6″), Brooke Magnanti  (“marry”), and Skye (“police” and “random”).

I thought Vermont was American not Latin?  Does any Latin places have American mottos?  –  Dorothy Lynn Lepisto

This week’s first video is a commentary from Molly Crabapple, who also provided the two links above it; the second video was contributed by Mistress Matisse, who says the universe put her in my life to bring me more fun and silliness.  The links between the videos are from Cliterati (“heroines”), Wikileaks (“police state”), Elizabeth N. Brown (“brain”), Radley Balko (“libertarianism” and “peasantry”), Rick Horowitz (“snow”), Clarkhat (“color”), Paul J. Ste. Marie  (“machine”), Jillian Keenan (“armed”), and Popehat (“jailed”).

You should have seen what we did to this guy—we jacked him up!  –  “Officer” Cynthia Whitlatch

This week’s top link contributor was nobody!  Actually, it was Reason articles tweeted by the Reason account, but I don’t give self-evident credits (i.e. articles tweeted by their own authors or host media) because they’re self-evident.  Got it?  The first video is from Mark Draughn, and even though I don’t like hip-hop I think this song needs to be promoted, especially because the NYPD wants it censored.  And since 50 Shades of Grey has appeared so often here lately, I thought y’all might enjoy this parody of E.L. James’ execrable prose and abysmal plotting.  The links between the videos were provided by Franklin Harris (“does” and “ad”), Walter Olson (“cuckoo”), Grace (“effect” and “never”), Jillian Keenan (“horrible”), Clarissa (“safer”), Radley Balko (“touch”), Nun Ya  (“lives” and “butch”), Tushy Galore (“dog”), Rick Horowitz (“cane”), Elizabeth N. Brown (“Uber”), Popehat (“rescue”),  and Domina Elle (“menstruating”).

People just have to accept that they live in Norway and it will snow.  –  Per Kristian Klausen

Today is the 15th anniversary of my boob job; however, I decided not to have a birthday party for them, because that would be weird (I’ll wait until their Sweet 16 next year).  And speaking of “weird” and “tits”, Rachel Bloom is getting married today; I’m commemorating it by posting one of her more delightfully deranged videos.  The first video is also pretty weird, but it’s an actual lawyer commercial contributed by Rick Horowitz (who also gave us everything above it).  The links between the videos were provided by Mike Siegel (“fowl” and “one”), David Ley (“nuns”), Grace (“state”), Jasper Gregory (“Bangles”), Wendy Lyon  (“expect”), and Jesse Walker (“franchise”).

The canned food item could stun the intruder or even knock him out until the police arrive.  –  Priscella Holley

Apparently we’re over the holiday slump, because there were lots of good links!  Mike Siegel was the top contributor this week, with the first video (an example of Sweden being Swedish) and everything above it; the second video (silly, but amusing) was provided by Kevin Wilson, and the links between the videos by Mistress Matisse (“race”), Radley Balko (“start” and “blue”), Dan Savage  (“federalism” and “unpunished”), Jesse Walker (“beer” and “luck”), Clarissa  (“determined” and “bury”), Violet Blue (“adventure”), Aspasia (“owners”), Popehat (“Mars”), Amy Alkon (“stupid”), Angela Keaton (“truck”), and Michael Whiteacre (“shampoo”).
