Lipidleggin’

Friday, February 1st, 2013

Whoohoo! Somebody has made a video adaptation of F. Paul Wilson’s 1978 story, “Lipidleggin’.”

Wilson (a physician when he’s not writing great, freedom-tinged supernatural fiction) wrote it back in the day when the fedgov insisted margarine was just the healthiest thing in the whole, wide world — which somehow makes it even more amusing now.

Thanks to Jim Bovard for finding and sharing the link with me on what appears to be the very first day the video went on YouTube. And thanks to John Marc Green & Company for making it.

Virtual Sports Show — support the gutsy vendors

Friday, February 1st, 2013

You remember the gutsy vendors who boycotted the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show when its British organizers decided to appease the DiFi crowd and ban ugly guns at the last minute.

The size and power of the boycott eventually got the show shut down.

Now a virtual sports show just for the boycotting vendors is online. Please give them your support by buying outdoor supplies from them during this event. The sale includes a ton of stuff — archery equipment, boats, outdoor clothing, power sports equipment, gun gear (of course), taxidermy, guide services, food, log homes, and more.

The virtual show will continue later, with non-boycotting vendors allowed to join. But for now, the only companies in this show are the ones who risked their fortunes and their sacred honor on the boycott. And I believe most, if not all, are offering the special deals they would have presented at the ESOS. So go. Get good stuff. Thank them for standing up for your rights. (NFI on my part.)

Here’s the announcement from one of the virtual show’s organizers:

You Asked How You Could Help…
Here it is… Help support those who stood up for what was right!

We are reaching out to everyone we know in an effort to raise awareness for the Virtual Sports Show we put together for the vendors who have both sacrificed and lost so much over the cancellation of the Eastern Sports and Outdoors Show in Harrisburg, PA. Blog posts can be found at www.MyNEOD.com outlining the details of the boycott from start to present.

These vendors stood up for our 2nd Amendment rights and stood with us throughout the boycott of the show, many risking sure financial ruin over their decision. The stood up for our 2nd Amendment rights, and now we are trying to show them support by purchasing items they stocked and planned on selling at the show.

MyNEOD.com set up the Virtual Sports Show as a thank you, and a last ditch effort and helping hand to get these guys out of a hole and standing back on firmer ground.

The Eastern Sports and Outdoors Show exhibitor, REED Exhibitions has agreed to refund their booth costs, but many of them still had nonrefundable plane tickets, hotel rooms, an abundance of stock for sale at the show.

Thanks for your help… please head on over to www.MyNEODClassifieds.com and ask your friends to do the same.

IN ADDITION TO MENTIONING THE SHOW – A lot of people are still reporting that they are going to the [originally planned, physical ESOS] show, and companies like Bass Pro shops in Harrisburg are getting more and more calls of show goers asking if they are still selling tickets and running shuttles for the show. We really also need to help raise awareness that the show is CANCELLED.

PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW! SAVE THEM A TRIP TO THE SHOW !

Thanks in advance for your help…

Tom McConnell (MyNEOD.com)
