STI stuff – putting another order in – Group Buy Prices – + have a discontinued Duty One in stock

I’m putting in another large order into STI around the end of the month.  If anybody wants anything, e-mail me at larry@fbmginc.com for a quote.  I do group buy pricing like this all the time.  Basically you help me bulk up my order so I get fatter discounts, and I pass the savings on to you.  Pick whichever model you want from www.stiguns.com and I’ll let you know the cost.  When I do the GB, my prices are hard to beat.

Also, one of my locals just won an STI Duty One in .40 at the American Handgunner shoot.  He’s consigned it here.  It is new.  I’ve got it in stock, $1200.  The Duty One is discontinued, so if you want one, this is it.

New blog about why Obama sucks

http://obama-exposed.blogspot.com/  Dave Markowitz created this place to be a compendium of reasons why Obama is one of the worst candidates ever. 

I can only imagine what would be the media’s reaction if they were to find out that John McCain’s self-proclaimed mentor was a racist, his good friends were convicted terrorists, that he wanted to create a Civillian National Security Force the size of the US military, or any of a hundred other things the Obamamessiah has gotten away with. 

Go Dave.

The FBMG webpage is finally UP!

www.fbmginc.com

It is up and running.  We’re still posting products and tweaking.  We still have like 8,000 pictures to post.  But the page is good to go. 

Fellow bloggers, do me a favor and spread the word, if you don’t mind.  My company webpage has been down for so long that people were starting to think that we’d gone out of business.  It was getting a little exasperating to complete a move into a building that was literally ten times bigger than our old store, only to have the word on the interwebs being that we were obviously defunct because our webpage was toast.  That’s the problem when you’ve got a company full of gun fanatics who’s idea of how to fix computers usually involves Tannerite charges. 

If you’ve got any comments or feedback, let me know and I’ll pass it along to the guy that’s spearheading this beast.

Our new page is crosslinked directly to our largest suppliers, so we can access thousands of products.  This is going to be sweet.

If the last Obama post ticked you off, check out HR1302

Just google it.  It is the Global Poverty Reduction bill.  Basically it takes .7% of our GDP and donates it to the UN to help make Africa a better place.  Guess who’s behind it?   Yep, our buddy, Barack Brownshirt Obama. 

Don’t take my word for it.  Go check out the bill.  It will be coming up for debate here shortly.  Because once again, Democrats know that you’re too stupid and greedy with your own money to do the right thing with it.  You’re not nearly as smart as the brilliant minds at the UN, the same people that brought you Oil for Food for Bribe Money. 

Think about this, we’re talking about giving something like 84 BILLION dollars a year to the UN, so that they can then funnel it to ruthless warlords.  Read some of the commentary by people that think this is a splendid idea.  It will make your head burst.

Barack’s Brown Shirts?

“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”  -Barack Obama last week talking about his new mandatory voluteer programs.  No, I didn’t make that up.

Okay, does that scare the hell out of anybody else? 

I know he’s not talking about the militia here.  He’s talking about a “civilian national security force”.  I can’t help myself, and I’m going to Godwin the heck out of this post, but the very first thing that popped into my head when he said that was the Brownshirts.

Why do we need this CNSF exactly?  Is the military not pulling its weight?  Are they not up to the task?  He mentions how this group will need to be just as well funded as the real military, which is ironic, since as a democrat, one of his core values is to rape the military budget to pay for crack whores and social programs whenever possible.

So if the military is doing its job, why do we need this CNSF?  Is it because the men and women of the US Military won’t be willing to do some of the things that he’s going to ask of them?  What exactly does he have in mind then? 

What will be the mission of this hyper-powerful organization?  Stop global warming?  Punish polluters?  Enforce diversity?  It sure as hell won’t be things like Provide For The Common Defense, or other little things from the Constituion.  Hey, I know, maybe they can all play dress up, and go out one night and hold Crystal Night 2. 

I’m sure that they won’t actually wear brown shirts.  That’s so last century… Barack does have style.  I’ll give him that.  I bet they’ll get nifty hats.

Sorry folks, that there is some scary stuff.  Spin it any which way you want.  Obama supporters, I would absolutely LOVE to hear you explain this to me. 

Also from the same speech, he outlined how he’s going to require volunteering.  (mandatory volunteers, get it?)  High school students will have to volunteer 50 hours a year, college students will have to volunteer 100, in order to graduate.  But see, that’s not mandatory, but if you don’t do it, then your school won’t get federal funds… Yep, guess what just became a graduation requirement…

What a load of crap.  I put myself through college.  I worked full time, and usually had two jobs, and took about 15 credits per semester.  My wife worked in a kitchen for 40 hours a week and took an average of 18 credits, and she did that until we had our first child.  That’s how real Americans put themselves through school, you ivory tower elitist prick.  We don’t have mommy paying for us.  We don’t go into asinine debt to attend Harvard and then whine about how life isn’t fair because the government didn’t pay for it.  We work our asses off.

And you have the audacity to say that you’re going to require us to do something else? 

I’m Mormon.  We volunteer to an obnoxious degree.  We don’t even have a paid ministry, so that means everything is done by volunteers. (Our Bishops don’t get Rev. Wright money, they all have real jobs) But I’m willing to bet teaching Sunday School, or doing the old widow’s yard work isn’t going to be on Barack’s Government-Approved volunteer list.  Nope.  Our future students will get to do important work, like passing out free condoms and needles to inner-city crack whores, and then registering them to vote.

Barack despises the military.  Why else does he need a rival organization founded in his image?  I haven’t seen this speech get any attention at all, but he’s talking about an expansion of governmental power that would make the Department of Homeland Security look like your neighborhood’s Girl Scout Program.  ZERO MEDIA SCRUTINY.

Barack despises those of us in fly-over country, out here clinging to our guns and our religion. Do you really think, even for a split second, that he respects the things that you volunteer for now?  Of course not.  Unless you’re marching for gay marriage for terrorists… Despite the fact that Americans are the most generous people in history, we’re still too stupid to manage our own affairs, and we have to be told what to do.

EDIT:  To add a link to a newspaper, because I’ve had some people tell me that had to be fabricated because it was too damn crazy.  http://wap.chicagotribune.mlogic3g.com/news.jsp?key=166447&rc=na_wo&p=3  So here’s one from his home town paper.  If you check Google, you can find this linked in about fifty other papers.  I originally heard it on the radio while driving home, and then had to jump online because I thought that I had misheard.

Necroville gets distribution

http://www.necroville.com/home.html

This movie was produced by a friend of mine.  I got to see the early production version. 

This movie is a blast.  It is kind of a slacker-comedy/monster movie.  If you’re a B-Movie nerd, you must watch it.

Movie Review: Days of Darkness

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0499456/

 

Once again, this movie proves why you should never pay attention to reviews of B-Movies on IMDB.  According to the reviews, this movie should be unbelievable in its badness.  (which is actually the reason that I rented it, but as you all know, I’ve got a sickness for bad movies).

 

Days of Darkness is actually really good.  It starts out as a zombie B-movie (alien comet variety to be specific) and turns into an alien invasion B-movie.  It had above average performances, above average plot, and some actually really interesting ideas. 

 

B-Movies should be judged according to that status, not against blockbusters.  I wish people would wrap their mind around that.  Some folks complain that it only took place at one location.  No kidding!  One location is cheaper to shoot than a bunch.  This isn’t the Bourne Supremacy people.  This movie was made for the Bourne Supremacy’s doughnut budget. 

 

SPOILERS BELOW

 

The actors did a surprisingly good job.  They were more than your typical zombie movie cutouts, and you end up knowing all of them as individuals.  The car dealers were my personal favorites.  My only pet-peeve is that all religious people that survive the zombiepocolypse will be total whackadoos, spouting scripture, and “doing the Lord’s work”.  It’s a tired cliché, but it does work in this movie because somebody needs to open the friggin’ gate.

 

Where this movie shined was in mixing in the aliens.  You’ve got genitals falling off, male pregnancy, and alien mutant births.  “Congratulations! It’s a jelly fish!”  What’s not to love?

 

There was real humor, and I did like the Hugs Not Drugs shirt. 

 

The plot hinged on the fact that the zombie comet didn’t affect anyone who was intoxicated.  Also the only females that were infected were apparently virgins with no alcohol in their system.  I’m pleased to announce that nobody in the area around Chico State was zombified at all. 

 

Overall, if you’re a B-Movie fan, catch this one.  I enjoyed it.

Movie Review: Ancient Evil, Scream of the Mummy

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0231138/

 

Alternate title:  Attack of the Pudgy Mummy! 

 

Now this stinker on the other hand… man… I don’t even know what to say.  I did however manage to watch it in record time, because I can watch movies on 2X speed and still get sound, even though everyone sounds like Alvin and the Chipmunks.  I reserve this power for especially dull movies, because otherwise I miss plot points or good scenes.

 

This was not a problem however, since over half of the movie is people wandering around waiting for the extremely slow mummy to attack them.  People can’t just get killed by the mummy… Oh no.  They have to walk around for ten minutes first, shining a flashlight randomly around and being scared by the wind, before Imho-Plump gradually sneaks up and stabs them.

 

Then the mummy (who was apparently an Aztec with a glandular problem) stabs people with his ceremonial knife, and it comes out clean.  The Aztecs were known for their bloodless kills apparently. 

 

See, the plot hinges on the fact that the mummy (do these bandages make me look fat?  YES) is to be used by an Aztec high priest (who happens to be a 17 year old white kid) to sacrifice a virgin to Tulaloc the Rain God and this will bring about the end of the world. 

 

So if your religion’s grand scheme for the apocalypse hinges on a sluggish mummy and a teenager, it is time to check out Cthuluism or something, because at least those guys have style.  The mummy punks out after a single stab wound from our nebbish hero, demonstrating why a couple hundred of my ancestors were able to defeat several million Aztecs.   

 

Overall, Scream of the Pudgy Mummy pretty much sucks.

MHI:1 & Writing Update

I spoke with Toni Weiskopf, publisher at Baen this weekend.  MHI is scheduled for one of the Summer 2009 slots, which covers a range of June-September.  I’ll post the exact month as soon as it is known. 

I’ll be a guest panelist at Mountaincon this year.  http://mountaincon.org/x/page/  This is my first sci-fi/fantasy con that I’ve ever been to, so not only am I going to a con, I’m going as a special guest.  That’s pretty darn cool. 

MHI:2 (the rough draft) is almost done.  That sadly won’t matter to most of you, because we’re still a year out from having #1 on shelves.  Beyond my control, sorry.  That’s the sad price to pay for going from self published to a real publishing house.  Which is a major bummer, because I probably could have personally sold another 1,000 copies of MHI since I discontinued it. 

After MHI:2 is done, I’ll be doing an improved Mr. Nightcrawler series and attempting to get that published.  I’ll be posting a brief excerpt on this blog in the next couple of days. 

I have another project that I’m working on also.  It is sci-fi (kinda) in that it takes place in the near future.  Not a monster book, and not a straight up thriller like the Mr. Nightcrawler stuff, but more of an adventure/comedy/social commentary.  I’m keeping this one close to the vest for now, because it is weird and original. 

After that, I’ve got about seven other projects in various states of development.  I just purchased an HD video camera so I can start screwing around in preparation of making my B-Movie, (lifetime goal right there) but most of the projects are books.  I’ve got one straight sci-fi, one horror/sci-fi, one crime drama, and provided that the MHI universe is popular, have 3 more books in that series percolating in my brain. 

It is my understanding that the average writer has to get about 4 books into circulation before they can live off of it. My goal is to reach that in the next four years.  I’ve got one done and picked up, a sequal provided the first one does well, and two in a different series that are 85% finished, that hopefully I can parlay my being an actual “professional” author into getting these past the slush piles of various thriller publishers.

Talk about topic specific, a friend of mine just created a page.  www.harryreidsucks.com

And you guessed it.  It is a place for you to put your reasons for why Harry Reid sucks.  I don’t know if the internet is big enough.
