We should have said something…

If you can read this, you’ve somehow landed at the new, new place. Not the old place that sucked. Not the new place that made the old place look like it wasn’t teh suck. The newer place. With very powerful gay hamsters.

We’re still getting things organized so don’t panic if there are some (party) quirks.

–The Management

Gavin adds: I believe this explains everything:


Comments: 90


I can see here, but the RSS feed apparently still points to the old place.


I think it will be a bit before DNS propagation and so on catches up — besides which we also had to set up new DNS servers…

Herr Doktor Bimler

Welcome back.
We don’t need no steekin’ RSS feed.


Hey! You’re Here.

It’s like I’ve died and gone to broadband!


I love the feed, but it’s freaking me out to see comments there that aren’t here, and vice versa. Mikey just commented on how well the (old) site is loading and asked that no more changes be made… poignant, ain’t it?


I am not a commenter

But truthfully, I jonesed for four days.

Welcome back.

I feel better now..


I suppose this is somehow my fault?

Incontinentia Buttocks

Wow….that loaded fast!

You have some drunk Althouse vlogging to catch up on here and here.

Warning: these clips, especially the second one, may actually make you feel sorry for her.


Works like a charm!


Why does management hate straight hamsters?

And you all call yourself tolerant…


So far so good.

I hope you are giving the hamsters full benefits to their partners.



That was fast. Faster than the evil Orange one.

Gay hamsters, eh? Is that one of our new exports?


Nice. Do I need to take off my shoes?


All this fast Internet action is freaking me out. It’s the New World Order. Laser-guided, UN helicopters are swarming my shack. They’re dropping Sadly, No hamster ordnance on my domicile. What have you unleashed?


You guys were out on one of those other internets for a long, long time. Welcome back.

Do they have preview buttons over there?


At last, teh funny is back.


perview button? We don[t need no sticking preveiw buttin.


“[…] very powerful gay hamsters.”



Well, fuckin’ A, this deserves a celebration.


We don’t need no sticking preveiw buttin.



So, this is where the magic happens, huh?


Well now, since the site seems to be loading faster than a speeding bullet, isn’t it time to test it for robustness?

(Hint: How about some good old fashioned Malkin Mockin’?)


Well now, since the site seems to be loading faster than a speeding bullet, isn’t it time to test it for robustness?

I’m sure the GoE will be along shortly to take care of that.


Hmmm, I wonder…

Yea for the hamsters- Party hats for all.


Long time listener, first time caller.

Where the hell were you?
Did you tell your mother?
Don’t let there be a next time.


Patience isn’t my thing but y’all have definitely earned some. Still it’s a shame that S,N was out of commission during the week that Daffy called those British sailors pussies for letting the Iranians take them hostage and Malkin posted her John Doe manifesto. Dr. Helen also wrote an astonishingly dishonest piece about how/why women are more angry than men and I kept wishing even one of these screeds had been processed through the mockery module over here.


The tubes have been fixed, thank your staff for sending me this internet.


Holy shite!!!!!!!

Incontinentia Buttocks was right. You got yerself some wine-drunk Althouse right here.

Bonus goodness: the time-lapse cuts as day turns to night and she keeps talking, talking talking. About the phone ringing. And her hair color. And an argument she had with someone in the 80s. And blah blah blah.

Worth watching.


Dear God, the long national nightmare is over. You’re back. I can only read so much serious political commentary without breaking out in hives, shaking uncontrollably and otherwise being miserable. My daily snark quotient has been dangerously low over the past week.

Don’t ever give the hamsters a day off ever again. Ever.




Gay hamsters! You lucky dogs. We can’t get them here – some sort of socialist EU regulation no doubt!


Are gay hamsters pink?

Meanest thing you can do to a narcissist is to deny them bloghits (and attention). Remember the snit the InstaParrot threw about not getting a link from the Colorado reporter?

Some tantrums should not be reinforced. Especially when she’s angling for more face time on TV/print based on her ability to create a publicity stir.


Hey everybody, Michele Malkin somehow went even crazier. America’s least-favorite self-hating immigrant now thinks her name is “John Doe� because … well, we have no idea why. It’s Malkin, so anything can mean anything at any time. But whatever she’s up to usually has something to do with her firm belief that Invisible Liberal Arabs need to be locked up in World War II concentration camps.



The fact is, it’s good to have you back.

The fact is, without Islamofascistdemocommies to kick around, I was very lonely.

The fact is, your regeneration (now with superpowered gay hamsters, no less) is a tribute to the President’s skill at healing the wounded.

The fact is, he’ll be taking pictures of your lewd tattoos and jumping on your StairMasters. any day now.

happy to see SN back up

A round of applause for the new hamsters, er, servers…And remember, don’t take the brown acid



lets see how that is


Thank jeebus. And the hamsters.


EVerything is going so fast, like that one episode of Star Trek. Oops I got a cut!


With very powerful gay hamsters.

Are those the ones I heard about in the news last week, ending up in the hospital emergency rooms because they had been sticking people up their assholes?


The site opened for me!!! WHOOO HOOO!


Is… is this heaven?

Incontinentia Buttocks

Is…is this heaven?

No, it’s [HTML Mencken’s undisclosed location].


Is… is this heaven?

Even better. It’s Super Breakout!


“All you have to do is push a couple of buttons”

Yeah, righhhhhhhhhhht!


Ok, this is getting kinda self-referential, like an abu gonzales explanation. Y’know, having a website that works really isn’t a major accomplishment – Hell, cap’n Ed manages it with a two digit IQ. So now that we’ve got a forum that actually works, let’s pick on somebody. Sandwiches and disagreeable comments for all!!!



yip yip yip yip yip….uh huh .. mmmmm ooohhh!


Hey, look at what Fox News has in has in store next for us gullible Americans.

I just thought it was funny.

a different brad

I agree that a fight with Malkin to test the new hamsters’ Shield ‘o’ Homosexuality is in order.
And now, the song that’s been stuck in my head this last week or so.

Henry Kissinger
How I’m missing yer
You’re the Doctor of my dreams
With your crinkly hair and your glassy stare
And your machiavellian schemes
I know they say that you are very vain
And short and fat and pushy but at least you’re not insane
Henry Kissinger
How I’m missing yer
And wishing you were here

Henry Kissinger
How I’m missing yer
You’re so chubby and so neat
With your funny clothes and your squishy nose
You’re like a German parakeet
All right so people say that you don’t care
But you’ve got nicer legs than Hitler
And bigger tits than Cher
Henry Kissinger
How I’m missing yer
And wishing you were here


The downtime wasn’t all bad. I don’t know about anyone else, but I grew to enjoy the break from the nutcases and narcissists (although TBogg just had to share Althouse drunkenly vlogging American Idol).


Sandwiches and disagreeable comments for all!!!


Mmm, and beer.


If you wanna invoke the Malkinites, how about we demand that they denounce Michael Savage for siding with the Islamofascists?



Gay Hamsters… BRILIANT!
but… we aren’t supposed to ask, and you weren’t suposed to tell!

regardless, thank baby jebus you are bask on the inter-tube nets!


YAY! Now’s the time to dance a glorious and very gay dance in thanks for the return of S,N with new and improved gay hamsters!


Oh Yay,is this thing finally fixed? Because with the crappy week I have had I need some giggles.

Hop to it.


Hurray!!! I was getting tired of looking at Althouse videos for amusement.


*weeps with relief*

All together now:

YOU try walking around the mall as a gay hamster and see how people treat you!


Hooray! Welcome back!


Huzzah, teh powerfully gay hamsters have unclogged my tubes. It’s good pain.

Built Like a Brick Althouse

You finally got your tubes unclogged! Hurray! Now I can catch up on my lurking…


This is good news for Republicans.


Oddly enough, yes. That explains things perfectly.

Meep-meep-meep-meep, bwa-haw.


Are these gay hamsters who power SN like the white lab rats in Rock & Roll High School who wear leather jackets and explode when the Ramones play at high decibel levels? Because that would be cool…


No, silly. They’re GAY hamsters. They explode when you play Liza Minelli at very high decibel levels…

Latest from Althouse: “Those Prissy, Puritanical Leftwing Bloggers

Despite all the snark deservedly hurled in Althouse’s direction, her two recent bouts of drunken vlogging have led to actual expressions of sympathy by many of us who are, frankly, not generally sympathetic.

But for the apparently appropriately initialed AA, this is just another occasion to invent pathologies of Teh Left and to sing of herself. After reveling in all the discussion about her that her Dean Martin routine has sparked, she concludes: “This is the way these people see having a glass of wine? How very prissy and puritanical!”

Er, no, Ann. Most of us enjoy the occasional glass of wine. “Drunken vlogging” is actually a charitable interpretation of otherwise completely bizarre online behavior.


So glad to see SN! back in the swing of things.

Powerful gay hamsters eh? I hate to say it, but I -do- get a mental picture when you say that 😛


Sadly, No! is back up?

Heh. I’ll believe it when I see it.

Meanwhile, you can find me swilling cheap red wine with Ann Althouse – if the glassed-in porch is rockin’ (and American Idol is on), don’t come knockin’.

a different brad

From the just linked Althouse post.
“something I do say, which is that some people get what I’m trying to do here and some don’t. See the quote from Jack Balkin in the masthead, above.”
The quote?
“Legal scholarship as performance art.”
I think Ann Althouse literally is annie angel.


I’ve never noticed a lot of legal scholarship on Althouse’s website. A lot of “American Idol” scholarship, a lot of “America’s Top Model” scholarship, a lot of feuding with (mostly liberal) bloggers who dare to criticize her. But legal scholarship, no, not much.

P.S. No, I don’t read Althouse’s blog regularly. The above remarks can be confirmed by a five-minute examination of Althouse’s blog.


I hate to say it but I’d rather watch PamJuggs. At least she’s teh “ZOMFG she’s friggin’ cRaZy!” type instead of teh “bore the paint of the walls crazy” type.

Anyway, now that SN!’s back online, I, for one, look forward to welcoming our corndog codpiece overlord.


Here’s Althouse on the Balkin quote:

Jack Balkin said that at the conference, making an impressive play for a spot in the banner… and winning it! He was talking about the different ways of doing law blogs:

“You can do legal scholarship as performance art, like Ann. I sometimes regard what she does as a kind of art. She’s performing in a certain way. It’s aesthetic and there’s a certain high style to it.”

I notice that this longer Balkin quote gives indication of whether or not he considers it good art.

Qetesh the Abyssinian

Hurrah! Hurrah! Happily, yes! Oh frabjous day, calloo callay, Sadly, No is back back back!

I promise not to eat the hamsters this time (hangs head in feline contrition, which lasts for all of a millisecond).


I think I’ll eat those fuzzy creatures instead. Yip yip yip yipyipyipyip EEEK!


I was missing you guys for a while, but then I got a call from my BFF Ann who said “yo, Mooms, I’ve got a case of Cabernet and Idol’s on tonight – waddya say? Oh by the way, can you hold a vidcam steady ….”


The fact is the new servers are good.

They please me.

Carry on, Sadly, No!

Powerful Gay Hamster

Ehh! It’s a livin’.


Nice to have you all back. Great series of posts I was jonesing for.

Keep up the good work. Laughter is about all I have left.


Here’s a shout out to the f/x work on the clip. Talk about maintaining production values.

Fading in the reflection of the eyes went above and beyond!


Man, I love those aliens. I swear, if “Sesame Street” wasn’t made partly with stoners in mind…


Very niiiice.


I’m pretty damn sure it was meant that way, simply because they must have been stoners themselves. The fact that I had to see it twice and giggled the entire time…excuse me, I need to get some water and a handful of pistachios.


Thank you for letting for fixing Sadly, Slow!


OMG – that clip was SOOOOOOOO adorable!


Are gay hamsters pink?

No, but their habitrails are FABULOUS!

Mehitabel the Abyssinian

As for their entrails… No. Musn’t speculate. Bad cat.


Yay! You’re alive.

I almost gave up on y’all.


I’m with you Matt T., those Sesame Street aliens are great.




Is that video supposed to be a parody of my parents?

Because if it is, it’s even more brilliant than I thought.


nice video its look like drink whole world wine.
