While the rest of us on the right pick apart Colman McCarthy over this Washington Post column Robert Stacy McCain decides in a brilliant bit of counter programing to tackle the issue that has sadly been ignored, namely the best tactics to ahem; stimulate the economy of the movie industry:

The question of what it takes nowadays to get people to go to the multiplex and pay $9 to see a movie they can catch a few months later on HBO or Netflix is a perplexing question for Hollywood. But when a chick says to her boyfriend, “Hey, you want to go see a ballet movie?” it’s kinda helpful if she can follow that up with, “You know, the one with the Natalie Portman lesbian scene.”

He then follows up 20 paragraphs on the cultural history of the “lesbian scene” in print and film including this gem:

It would be a worthwhile project for some “cultural studies” grad student to go through the 1971-79 Penthouse archives and count how many girl-on-girl pictorials they published. And you could probably get a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to do that research.

The irony of course being that you likely could get a grant from the NEH for such research and this is precisely the type of scholarship that our Mr. McCarthy would prefer our kids in college study as opposed to ROTC and the like.

This is usually the hit starved season for bloggers but Stacy knows that the phrase “natalie portman lesbian scene” will generate hits for years to come in search engines not yet invented to shore up his slow days. Why comment on the news of the day when you can make a long-term investment that will guarantee you hits and page views forever?

Update: Nothing like an Instalanche to start the new year, between the 63 (so far) at my party and this it’s quite a start. Don’t forget to tune into WCRN AM 830 tonight at 9:30 for DaTechGuy on DaRadio with DaScienceGuy and Barbara Espinosa of American Freedom. And remember two weeks from tonight Glenn will be my guest on the show (Jan 15 9 p.m. ) Mark that on the calendar! Listen live here. And if you are a business or a blogger looking for hits, you can’t do better than that for a draw.

…but PJTV picked my link as the blog of the week although EXJon should get the majority of the credit.

That and your help will get me to Pa-12 to cover that race.

As D-Day continues to close in and the job cupboard remains bare I continue to look for any way to augment my income before unemployment disappears.

In that vein I’ve written what is (at least for now) my first Examiner article on the subject of Boston area tea parties:

They didn’t look very dangerous to me.

On April 18th Bill Clinton suggested the tea parties “create a climate” that makes a Tim McVeigh more likely to act.

Yet four days earlier the atmosphere on the Boston Common was festive not angry. People had come from all over the state and beyond as they united in making their point about taxes, spending and government responsibility.

If you have the time an inclination I’d like to ask you to click on the article and read the whole thing. Every hit on that site helps, and of course if you click around a bit that certainly doesn’t hurt.

Next to the tip jar (or hiring me yourself) this is the easiest way you can help put a couple of dollars in the pocket.

After all it doesn’t look like this guy is going to:

…good sport though he is.

I know it’s a very bad video, should have interviewed him in the lighted tent.

A: What is the real net effect of Stormy Daniels running for Senate as a republican in La?

Camp of the Saints and The Classic Liberal decide the matter requires deep photographic investigation.

Nice pictures, but I’m still not convinced she’s worth $1900.

Oh and make sure you check out the comments at Bob’s site they provide some great one liners.
