Anonymous Instant Photophone Moblogging

By way of Boing Boing I came across this site to post your phone cam pics. It can be anonymous but as you can see I've forgone that bit of it. There's some boring pics there and some cool ones. Don't expect anything too spectacular, after all it's just a phone cam. All my pics are HERE. Any cool one's I'll actually post them my blog, but most of them will be on Mobog.


The New Mutant Race Has Begun

Found this through Tribes:
Don't be fooled by the corporations that advertise evolution. "The new breed" is not related to cars, nor is it related to cell phones. Evolution has nothing to do with consuming the latest technological gadgets. Fuck "futuristic movies" like The Matrix. The cyber fringe came up with that shit decades ago- Hollywood has commodified our ideas and sold them to the masses. Fuck the 60's. Fuck the hipsters and occultists who exclusify information. Fuck your obscure record collections. Fuck your goth clubs and your art groups. Activate total information warfare.

Interesting. They need some actual information though, not just propaganda. I'll keep a watch on it.


well that's stupid. i'm using wap blogger to post this and they have a limit on #of characters you can post. oh well. anyone know a better method of doing this?


ICP Fucks George Bush

Life would be so much easier if they just gave you a list of what to buy them. Maybe if they put it on a website that let you order it directly. Oh my god, what a novel idea. Maybe they could call it a wishlist as well. Wow. If only...


Closet Rivethead

I think I'm a closet Rivethead. At least when it comes to the bedroom I am. For a very long time I've wanted to decorate my room like a vampire lair. Dark, metal, concrete, black light, etc. Electric Metal describes it perfectly in step 1 of How To Be Industrial: A Rivethead's Guide:
[Industrialise your bedroom]

* Permissible colours: black. A hint of dark grey is also acceptable. Rust brown may also be acceptable in some circumstances (i.e. in rust).

* Basic materials: metal, concrete.

* Furniture: minimalist, metal, uncomfortable, preferably built from girders or scrap metal. Your shelves could also be held up with breezeblocks.

* Ornaments/decoration: spiky things, rusty chains, tools/powertools, chainsaws, metal cables, barbed wire, computer cables, electrical tape, gas masks, skulls/skeletons, also (obviously) huge posters of industrial bands or films.

* Vital items: technology is the key word here. Therefore you must have: stereo (with huge speakers - let the world share your love of industrial and noise, and make sure they can not just hear it but feel it as well); TV; DVD player; VCR; computer; anything else you can lay your hands on with buttons, dials, levers, flashing lights, etc on it. It doesn't have to do anything, just be stacked up looking scary and technological and overwhelming to any non-rivethead who dares enter into your domain. Also required is a large stack of industrial CDs (vinyl is so outdated darling), DVDs, videos, dystopian fiction, etc.

* Floor coverings: carpet is a big no-no. Only metal flooring is acceptable.

Step 2: Pets for Rivetheads seems to fit as well. Interesting...


Check out the trailer for Girl with a Pearl Earring. It looks like it will be a another great movie with Scarlett Johansson. That photo is from the Esquire UK magazine which I found here.

From Esquire UK Interview:

You only make sense of it when you understand that every major feature is gorgeously out of proportion. The eyes are pools, clear, blue and alert. The nose is an unsculpted lump of clay that is not in the least pretty. The lips are just pure and simple indecent. They are so full and succulent that they could drip. In a shameless exploitation of her finest asset, Scarlett smokes Capris, the worlds slimmest cigarette. As she inhales, the stick looks like a lollipop in a giants mouth.

Dark Side of the Moon

I just got through watching a really great movie. Love The Hard Way with Adrien Brody, is a movie that never got the recognition it deserved, even after Brody won his Oscar. I enjoyed everything about it. It's one of those movies that has the tendency to pull my strings. The emotions expressed on screen resonate with the emotions within me. They're not the exact same, but they are parallel to each other.

It reminded me of feelings I had awhile ago. Feelings of blaming myself for someone else's problems. Of being scared of what the outcome would be if I wasn't there. Anger for wanting to leave. Anger for not leaving. There were happy times. But were they worth it? My life was heading in one direction but got side swiped by a fucking Winnebago. All semblance of control was lost, and now that it's finally back on track, I don't know if it's the right track anymore. Best laid schemes....

It's weird, the things a movie will make you think. That's their job though, isn't it? It's also awkward writing them down. I told myself that this was my space, to say what I want to say. But when you know the people that will read your thoughts personally, it almost feels like I shouldn't speak freely. But fuck it. Like I said, this is my place. The truth hurts, and I haven't said anything that's not true.

Jesus, this post got out of hand quickly.


Things On My Mind

1. I've been thinking about getting my own domain address, but I'm having a hard time deciding what it should be. Should I keep using the Freon persona, begin using my real name, or fashion a totally new handle? That's the hardest question. Where should I host it? sustainablehost.com sounds like a cheap place and they look like they can run MovableType which I want to start using. But there's also some local hosts that I've had recommended to me. As soon as I get a day off where I have some time to do it, I'll decide what to do and do it.

2. I also want to start a blog to deal with the trip to Mexico I'm planning. It will probably take place March 2003 around my birthday. My two cousins will accompany me as I tour the motherland. I want a place to put up photo's of the trip and post thoughts and comments as well. I might make it a group blog, and have my cousins post as well. Since they don't know English, it would be a multicultural site. Every post will be in both English and Spanish, with me doing the translating. So hopefully I'll have time soon to get all this going.

3. I've been wanting to get a dog for a very long time. The problem has been deciding what kind. I guess the price is really the biggest obstacle. So I visited the Dewey Animal Shelter but didn't see anything I wanted. Mostly Pitbull's, which are pretty but I don't have the attitude(balls) for one of those.

Top 5 Dogs(random order)
Siberian Husky
Red Bone Coonhound
Old English Sheepdog

Since I won't be able to shell out $400 or more for a dog anytime soon I'll just keep visiting the dog shelters and see what I can find.

4. I've been reading Quicksilver and it is really good. So far there isn't much action, but I love the history and the politics. Neal Stephenson is great.

5. I also just read the latest issue of Sleeper by Ed Brubaker. He is such a good writer and the comic is excellent. The only comic that I can rate a 10 on every issue. After 11 issues I'm still impatient for the next one, that rarely happens with comics. Usually I read a title for a few months then realize that I just don't really care for the story. Sleeper, Rex Mundi, and Y the Last Man are the exceptions to the rule.

6. Damnit I'm getting tired and can't think of what else to say. Nobody really cares anyways.


The American Dream

Below is an excerpt from a movie critique by Bergmann Endresson, Noted Film Critic, Swede. The movie is the excellent piece of art done by Rick Solomon, starring himself and the up and coming star, Paris Hilton. Ha, I find it so funny. Like Joshua said "iwatchedyoufuck". It's great.

The cold black of night is penetrated by an alien tone, played upon an inhuman scale. It pierces through the quiet slumber that is the inheritance of honest men.

As when Psyche dripped her voyeur wax upon the forbidden face of love, a sprightly nymph stirs, and all is a flutter:

"Let me get my phone."

Paris Hilton's first line in this magnificent post modern statement is more conditioned response than free will. Like Pavlov's doggy, she is powerless to resist the cold intrusion of the technological sprawl that devours countrysides, bathrooms and budoirs with the same unyielding hunger. McLuhan promised us a Global Village, but nowhere did he say that it would be a tax haven, and on this evening the throbbing circuitry of a connected world demands the sacrifice of a media virgin. But she is not without an advisor. In this film Ms. Hilton acts opposite Rick Solomon, media mogul, giver of corporal knowledge. Yet he is more, and in a poignant moment of self-loathing which defines the entire encounter, Solomon blasphemes the very technology upon which he has built his empire:

"Fuck your phone."

Svengali. Lothario. Luddite? Solomon's character thrusts deeply not only into technological contradiction but also into magnificently complex Neo-Purtanism, defending the sanctity of the marital bed from the light of truth and the becks and calls of the public just as he violates that very same realm with a handheld camera. It is in this union of night and photography that the film itself becomes organic, and the handheld camera an extension of Mr. Solomon's own masculinity. Autofocus indeed.

Nothing like watching the rich get fucked.
Thanks to Boing Boing for bringing this to my attention.


London Calling

The Diary of a London call girl.
Found this site through Sizemore. It's great reading, just take a look at the following:

--This is not a concern on the job: condoms make cleanup a snap, or a damp flannel is passed round, or someone (usually me) is the recipient of a zinc-and-protein supplement. Sometimes I rub it in and go home as is ("I want to smell of you all night..." usually results in a decent tip).--



Because I Choose To


I've been scanning several Matrix forums, reading what the masses have to say on the latest movie, and I've decided I might as post my view on the movie. Beware this will spoil the movie for you. It's late and I'm tired and I jump around a lot but you get the main points in this.

The movie starts with Neo in the Mobil Ave train station which is Limbo. It's a place between the Matrix and the Real world. The Machines use it to load programs into the Matrix or to delete them. Here Neo meets Sati and her parents. What makes this important is that Sati is the child of two programs. Programs that are in love. This takes Neo by surprise. Love is a human emotion, how can programs experience it and have a child because of it. Ramakandra, the father, explains that love is just a word. A word that stands for a connection, which two programs can share. But they are forbidden from having a child so they've negotiated with the Merovingian to allow Sati to take her parents place. They sacrifice themselves for their child. This shows Neo that they do in fact 'love' Sati.

Neo gets out of Limbo, talks to the Oracle who talks more about choices you choose by not choosing and what not. Zion is breached by Sentinels, great fighting sequence ensues. Neo goes to the Machine's City with Trinity. On the way he fights Bane who is really Agent Smith. Neo wins but his eyes are burned out. He can still see with out them. He sees light emanating from the Machines. As they near the City they are attacked and end up flying upwards. They break out of the clouds and see the sun for the first time in the Real World. They crash down to earth and land in the city. Trinity is killed in the crash, but Neo goes on. He is confronted by the Deus Ex Machina. He makes a deal with them that if he destroys Agent Smith they will make peace with the humans. This is accepted because the Machines have lost control of Agent Smith and he will infect them as well and destroy them because he is a virus.

The plug Neo back into the Matrix, he fights Agent Smith who earlier attacked the Oracle and took over her body. So he has the Oracle's Eyes now. He can see what she used to see. The fight is long and neither one is losing because they are one and the same. Same coin, two different sides. Agent Smith asks Neo why he fights, why he does anything at all when he knows it is inevitable for him to lose. Neo answers 'Because I choose to...' which is the whole point of the entire trilogy. Choice. What is real? What ever you choose it to be.

Neo remembers what the Oracle said earlier about every beginning having an end. He allows Agent Smith to enter him like Smith tried in Matrix2 but this time Neo doesn't fight him off. Agent Smith takes over Neo's body but since that was his beginning, he is destroyed. Agent Smith the virus was made when Neo entered Smith in Matrix1. By entering Neo in Matrix3 he completes they both are destroyed. In the real world the Machines drag Neo away and Neo looks very Christ like.

The Machines stop the attack on Zion and the war is over. There is a scene with the Oracle and the Architect talking. The Architect says that humans will now be given a real choice on staying or leaving the Matrix. Some, like Cypher from Matrix1, will want to stay, others will leave. The Machines will be able to survive off of these volunteers. Humans will be able to build and try to fix the world again with the Machines as partners. The Matrix will also be the home now to those programs that don't want to be deleted.

Neo sacrificed himself, not only for the humans, but for the Machines as well. He saved them both and fashioned a peace between them. A great ending in my view.

i fell in love tonight
i watched a movie and fell in love
not with the actress
or the actor
not the beautiful
exciting city or strange new
i fell in love with the feeling
i had
the same feeling i get when i lose
myself in a wonderful book
the feeling of escaping
the feeling i never want to end
but always does the warmth goes
away and i'm returned to
the cold harsh world a crash
landing into reality once
again expelled from
paradise and torn from the womb
but for that rare instance right
before i wake up
i'm at peace and
it's worth it


Better Than The Original

Britney Spears vs. Angie Dickinson

The Winner Is

What's up with Angie's ass? Kind of flat looking to me. Better ass and legs on Britney. Even the sweater is better.

Bye the way Britney is angry at Esquire magazine because the pictures they took are 'too naked'. Please Britney, you're wearing a turtleneck for christ's sake, how naked could you possibly be? :P
More pics at their site.


Blank Slate

I haven't had anything to blog about in a long time. I just haven't felt like anything has been worth writing about. I still don't but I'm forcing myself. I think I'll mention the movies I've watched recently:

Cowboy Bebop: The Movie
Unfortunately the first time I watched it wasn't as good as it could have been. I was tired when I put it on, and I decided to watch it in Japanese with subtitles instead of in English. Usually subtitles are better than voice overs but I found that not to be true this time. The subtitles were not bad but coupled with my state of mind at the time, I ended up falling asleep during parts of it. The Japanese just lulled me to sleep. So I watched it again with the English voice over and really liked it. I thought the voice over was more natural than the subtitles. This was my first experience with CB and I liked it. I'm interested enough to check out the TV episodes. I liked the music, and the art style. I would have liked a little more sex and violence to go with the R rating and the fact that I'm a pervert but I was let down.
3 out of 5

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
I never saw the original so I can't compare them but I did enjoy this one. It was entertaining, not really scary, kind of gruesome, and it was annoying that, like most horror flicks, it was left open for a sequel. Again I have a complaint of not enough sex. In this genre I expect girls to end up naked and bloody. This one only had the blood. Oh well.
2 out of 5

Kill Bill: Vol 1
I love Quentin Tarantino movies and this one great. I loved the sword fighting, the spraying blood, and the ass kicking. A true homage to kung fu movies. My favorite part was the scene where they tell the origin of O-Ren Ishii by switching to anime. There's things you can show in anime that just wouldn't come across in live action. And a cartoon can be more violent with out people objecting. I mean it's a cartoon. It's for kids. They can't really be violent, right? It was great.
4 out of 5

School of Rock
Cute movie with good message. Funny the first time around.
2 out of 5

The Rundown
Rosario Dawson. mmmm!!! Oh ya, The Rock and Stifler are in it too.
3 out of 5

I can't remember what else I've watched recently. But that's enough for now. Actually this post came out better than I thought it would. Like anyone really cares.



Wicked Wonka

I heard on the radio that Insane Clown Posse's Wicked Wonka Tour is going to be in Vegas for two shows the 1st and 2nd of October at The Huntridge. I've been a fan for a long time and was at their last show here in Vegas. It was the best show I've ever been to. They had so much stage presence and love for the crowd and the crowd loved it and had so much energy it was almost a religious experience. I've never felt that way at a concert before. Getting drenched in Faygo soda made me feel as one with the crowd and the music. I plan to be there again, for both shows if I can afford it.

I know a lot of people don't understand them and the message they are putting out (and yes there is a message underneath it all). But nobody explains it better than Violent J. Check out their latest interview on the Howard Stern Show here. Either you get them or you don't.

As I was listening to my ICP mp3 collection I ran over this song about George Bush. I'm guessing it came out around the time he was elected because that's when I originally heard about it. Anyways it still rings true today. Enjoy.

Fuck George Bush Like His Dad Did by Insane Clown Posse

There's a man we all know
Looks like his dad and has got lot's of dough
He comes from Texas and he runs the show
He's got more money then you'll ever see
That's why he wants the presidency
To stretch that all mighty dollar from sea to shining sea
He says that he's not religious
He's just puttin' his faith in the lord
Hey why take chances when your after your final reward
Well if prayin' has made him successful
Then hell I'll give it a try

So I'm prayin' I'm prayin'
I'm prayin' up to the sky
I'm prayin' I'm prayin'
I'm prayin' for George Bush to die
(I don't really want him to die man, it's a joke)

He's got rich friend waiting at home
They now what they want and know who they own
Why pay a tithe when you can pay for the throne
Cuz ruling the world's a numbers game
Just ask the meek and the sick and the lame
Cuz they can't get past the guards down on country club lane
Now he says that he's got compassion
As much as money can buy
Just don't hold your breath while your waiting for the pigs to fly by

Love and praise and innocence are like the presidency
The more you pay to get 'em the less that they leave

Rich men with problems in Texas all know
Just ask Boy George he won't say no
Unless of course you're an inmate waiting on death row
It might be youthful indiscretion
But what that means nobody knows
It must be the savings and loan he put up his nose

Now he says he's ready to lead us
At much more than 10 cents a dance
But who's really paying the tune
While we watch Georgie prance

I think of Thomas Jefferson
And it makes me want to cry
To think that the chair he sat in someone could buy

George wears his faith like a money belt
But I'll pray to ?mad time? instead
Please come back Tom and save us from King George again (and his friends)

If praying made George successful
Oh hell I'll give it a try
I'm prayin' I'm praying
I'm prayin' up to the sky
I'm prayin' I'm praying
I'm prayin' for George Bush to die
I'm prayin' (sing it) I'm prayin'
I'm prayin' like it's going out of style
I'm prayin' ya I'm prayin'
For George Bush to die



Starving Child in Sudan by Kevin Carter

There's nothing I can say about this photograph that hasn't already been said. This was taken in 1993. It's sad that 10 years later, these things still take place. So much for the great 21st century.

Thanks to Snikering Lemming for reminding me who the photographer was and giving me some backstory on the photo.




I grew up around boxing, my father and uncle both involved heavily as a boxer and a trainer respectively. After an injury side-lined my father I was still an avid follower with him as my guide. I love boxing, more than any other sport. Basketball, football, those are games, boxing isn't a game. It's a fight. Two men going toe to toe is beautiful to me. It's as much an art as Van Gogh and Picasso.

I've followed the debates against boxing and for it. I've been disappointed in the past with certain decisions in big fights. But usually by watching the fight again, you can see where the judges decided the way they did. There's been 'black eyes' on the sport but that's expected. But tonight I think boxing was 'knocked out'.

In tonight's Oscar de la Hoya vs. Shane Mosley fight Oscar was robbed. He fought the better fight, he landed more punches, more jabs, more power hits, he moved better, he won the fight. But 3 men gave the belts to Sugar Shane.

George Forman, one of the ringside announcers and former heavyweight champion, favored Mosley but gave the fight to de la Hoya. He was mad at the decision. He mentioned a conspiracy towards de la Hoya's promoter, Bob Arum. I agree. Something is going on there. This was not a correct decision. Even Mosley's father was telling him he needed to knock out Oscar to win before the last round. His own father had Oscar in the lead.

This calls for a change in the way this sport is judged. We can no longer trust the judges. They are too easily compromised. Most of them are not even ex boxers. It's bullshit. This sport means too much to too many people for it to become laughable. It's boxing not wrestling. It's about pride and heart and skill, not money and politics. I wish that statement was still true.


Help Needed

I remember a photograph from 1992 - 1994 depicting a Somali boy laying in the dirt, probably dead, with a vulture nearby watching him. This was a very popular photo at the time and was used to show how desperate the situation in Somalia was and why the US should be involved. I would like to view this photograph again but can't seem to find it anywhere. If anyone knows where I can view it online, or maybe the name of the photographer please comment below and let me know. Thanks.



Man In Black

Johnny Cash 1932 - 2003

I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,
Livin' in the hopeless, hungry side of town,
I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime,
But is there because he's a victim of the times.

I wear the black for those who never read,
Or listened to the words that Jesus said,
About the road to happiness through love and charity,
Why, you'd think He's talking straight to you and me.

Time to say goodbye to another legend. We'll always have your music to remember you and keep us company. Rest in peace.

To Boldly Show Some Crack

I just finished enjoying the season premiere of Enterprise. While it wasn't the best Star Trek episode I've ever seen, it was very much anticipated and gave me the shot of Trek I needed to relieve the withdrawal.

I think I'll jump straight to the best part of the entire show. Near the end where T'Pol helps Trip out with his problem sleeping. She has him stimulate some pressure points on her back and while he's doing that she takes of her shirt and the side of her breast is visible. And when she sat down you saw some ass crack I could not believe I was seeing this on a Star Trek show. Sure the last two seasons have had their fair share of sexuality especially concerning T'Pol, but this was more than before. Don't get me wrong though, I'm not complaining, in fact I enjoyed it. If that makes me guilty of falling for the lowest denominator than so be it. I enjoy Star Trek, and I enjoy scantily clad women, and when you combine them together, in the right context, they can only enhance each other.

Here's a pic of T'Pol's new look, which I feel is better. My guess is that since she left the Vulcan High Command, she is now wearing Vulcan civilian clothes. That seems logical to me. That would also explain why she has a new haircut. Her longer hair would also indicate civilian life vs. the usual military cut we are used to. Or I could just be looking WAY to deep into things but that's a fan's job, isn't it?


I Miss Clinton


Sell Your Soul

I got a quote on the cash value of my soul right now if I was to sell it:
Your soul is worth £21240. For your peace of mind, 44% of people have a purer soul than you.

Not a bad price. In fact, I am very tempted. We'll see.




I just finished watching the Democratic debate on Fox. They all seem like good people but none of them really grab me as the next president. If I had to vote right now I would probably vote for Al Sharpton, on the grounds that he's the best speaker.

Aside from all the political questions, I liked the fact that they were asked for their favorite song. Howard Dean mentioned Wyclef Jean's, Jaspora, as his. I remember this being a good song, but it's in Jamaicain Creole and uses a lot of slang. Below is an English translation. I wonder if Dean knows what the song is actually saying or if he just likes the rhythm.

I did not translate this, I got it off of googles cache.

Jaspora by Wyclef Jean of of Carnival CD

This is what the world was waiting for
Wyclef who came from the Fugees
Jeremie, Haiti, Port-au-Prince, Flatbush...

Jaspora doesn't respect Jaspora (repeat 4 x)

Ever since I was little, I left Haiti
There's some that went to Brooklyn there's some that went to Miami
Why do Jamaicans always say they are Jamaicans,
But Haitians are afraid to say they are Haitians?
Why? Are you scared to say your name is Samuel?
Why? Are you scared to say you're with Israel?
Why? Every night you are sleeping with Jezebel!
You're scared to say Haitian girls are beautiful!
Beautiful girls are beautiful...

I respect your name just like I respect the angel Gabriel
Here, Diaspora men want to take you to hotels,
Start talking English, turning to playboy channel
They do not respect Israel.

Diaspora do not respect Diaspora
If you are a Diaspora I am going to give you to sharks
Diaspora do not respect Diaspora
If you are a Diaspora tonight we're going to disarm you

Diaspora ha ha o, put your hands up!
I am going to take them and throw them in prison
I will make them know who is Toussaint
I will make them know who is Dessalines
After, we will let them go and send them back to Brooklyn
So he could go to his mother who is cooking in the kitchen
His mom looked at him and said "Man, you've changed"
She said I changed because I am Haitian
They taught me a lesson, they put me in prison.

I see Diaspora women and Diaspora men
There are people who are not going to make it because they will sleep with the fishes
They lost their knowledge just like a priest without religion

Diaspora do not respect Diaspora
If you are a Diaspora I am going to give you to sharks
Diaspora do not respect Diaspora
If you are a Diaspora tonight were going to disarm you

Port-au-Prince do not respect Diaspora again
Men Flatbush do not respect Diaspora
Men Canada do not respect Diaspora
Men Miami do not respect Diaspora

Pa Kayos do not respect diaspora
Papa Djoume do not respect Diaspora
Refugees do not respect Diaspora
Men Florida do not respect Diaspora
Wrong things done are going to finish worse
If you disrespect native-born
Done wrong things are going to finish worse
Disrespect Haitians you will get hit...

Jaspora has to respect Jaspora
Jaspora has to respect Jaspora

Strike That From The Record

Ok I don't like Fountains of Wayne, I just like that one song. I downloaded a random list of their songs and they're just to boring. Too slow I guess. They remind me of a slowed down Blink. Oh well, I still found one good song.


After Hours

I was watching MTV around noon, and MTV After Hours was on. I know that doesn't make sence but the entire station is confused. Anyways I caught the video by Fountains of Wayne, Stacy's Mom. It was the first really enjoyable video on MTV in a long time. Sure it's just pop but I think that's what made it good for me. It was light and funny, the video went along with the song. I'd never heard of these guys until yesterday, on the Don and Mike Show, and then today I saw the video. I'm going to have to check out some of their other stuff. It reminds me of the stuff I used to listen to.

Stacy's Mom

Stacy, do you remember when I mowed your lawn? (mowed your lawn)
Your mom came out with just a towel on (towel on)
I could tell she liked me from the way she stared
And the way she said, "You missed a spot over there"

And I know that you think it's just a fantasy
But since your dad walked out, your mom could use a guy like me

Stacy's mom has got it goin' on
She's all I want, and I've waited so long
Stacy, can't you see you're just not the girl for me
I know it might be wrong,
but I'm in love with Stacy's mom

Time to hit Kazaa up.

Besides that video, MTV was actually showing music videos. I caught Linkin Park which I really like. Christina's new video isn't bad, and her dressed like a whore isn't bad either. I'd give her 10 minutes before she got raped dressed like that in a bad neighborhood.

I wish I could watch an all music video channel. Even when the music isn't my favorite, it's still fun.

Like A Virgin

Britney Spears Kisses Madonna at the MTV VMA's

Wow!!! I was speechless for about ten minutes. Did you see the Fab Five in the audience? Even they got turned on by this. I'd heard the rumors about Britney and Madonna having a performance together but this really surprised me, in a good way. This was definitely the best VMA's in a long time.

Best performance: Duh, look above!
Best joke of the night by Chris Rock had to be the Olsen twins and R Kelly seating arrangment. Chris Rock was excellent as host. He kicked Fallons ass and the Wayans.
Biggest diss: Johnny Cash not winning something better than Best Cinematography in a video. At least male performer over Timberlake.


Cannibal Holocaust----The one that goes all the way!!!!

In 1979,
four documentary filmmakers
dissapeared in the jungles
of South America
while shooting a film
about cannibalism...

Six months later
their footage was found.

I have to get my hands on this. I don't think they actually sell the dvd on the web site but they do have it here, and the price isn't bad at all. I've always thought that The Blair Witch could have been better and I think this movie takes that concept up a level. Actually up quite a few levels. Here's a cool image for you're enjoyment.


Star Wars Kid

I know this is old news to most of you, but I just heard about it. This is hilarious. The remixes are excellent as well. I know the kid is embarrassed but come on, we've all done this. Everyone acts out cool movie actions when they're young. I remember it was kung fu for me after watching Bruce Lee movies. I would run around kicking and jabbing at my sister and I would do flying kicks off the couch. It was great. I wish I had video of myself doing that.

I Miss You

I doubt anyone has even noticed that I haven't posted in a long time. I haven't really felt like it. I guess I'm kind of depressed. My best friend has moved to Kansas City to attend art school and I'm left alone here. I've known it was coming since I met her, but it's not easy to spend every day with someone and then you don't see them and only have a telephone and computer to connect each other. I've really been in denial. Whenever I start to think about it my mind automatically switches to something else. I've been doing all the things usually done to escape the real world. Reading, watching movies, playing video games, etc. I know we'll see each other again, still be friends, but getting seperated sucks. We'll be ok. It'll just take some time.

Keep your head up, and so will I.



The Missing Unit

I first saw this on Nooey.

Like I said on his blog, this is seems like it should be impossible. You have four static shapes that form a larger shape. They have a set area and so does the large shape. Yet when you move the smaller one's around and form the same large shape again in a different configuration, it seems you lose a square unit of area, yet none of the static shapes lost any area. If anyone can explain please do.

update: The answer is explained very nicely using flash at this site. The puzzle provided some good brain exercise.


Freshman Girls, Get'm While They're Thin

This is a warning to Kelly who's going off to KCAI in the great state of Missouri. Everyone knows that freshman girls gain weight that first year. It's commonly known as the "freshman 15", 15lbs being around the average weight gain. According to the link above, it's mostly because of dorm food and junk food, but I think we all know it's the beer. Lot's and lot's of beer. So take heed, Kelly, and don't fall into the same trap as other coed's who have gone before you.

Just playin' with you, have a great time in Kansas City, Klyde.



New Layout

I borrowed this new layout from bluerobot. I've been playing around with CSS and I liked the 3 column layout. So in order to learn more about CSS, I've been playing around with their code to see what everything does. As soon as I get some money I'll be getting my domain, and start using movable type instead of blogger. I got a few tips on good hosts that have everything MT needs to work, so that's my next goal. I know a few of the headings are to small, etc, but I don't have time to fix them at the moment. Other than the new layout, I haven't really had anything new to talk about. I'll put up a couple movie impressions sometime tomorrow.

My grandparents are coming into town from Mexico. I haven't seen them in 4-5 years, so it will be an experiance. I'll see how it goes.



Saddam's Sons Are Dead

I don't want to sound like a blood thirsty, cold hearted, son of a bitch, but it's about time. I'm getting tired of the shitty job our intelligence agencies are doing when it comes to the capture of the world's biggest pieces of shit. Osama bin Ladin is still free, Saddam Hussein is still free. By capturing them or showing their dead bodies, it will bring a sort of closure to a lot of people. Sure we can win the war but the leader's of the so called "rogue" nations need to be brought to so called American justice. Whether this war was right or wrong is not the issue now. It's to late for that. The thing we should be focused on is standing Iraq back on it's feet under a "better" government. Capturing their ex leaders will help heal some of the scars.



Reality TV Superheros

What is WildGuard?
WildGuard is a made-for-TV superteam. An "American Idol" for superheroes, hundreds of heroes converge to try out for this reality TV show. Yet, only five will be chosen to fill WildGuard's roster.

We as the readers have the oppurtunity to vote for the teams fifth member, by going to
wildguard.com. There's also a contest on who the final five wil be.

All this will take place in the six issue mini-series by Todd Nauck, known for his long run on DC's Young Justice. Look for Wildgaurd at you favorite comic book store in September.

This sounds like a great idea to me. Below is my choice for team member. She's hot (literally) and seems like she would be fun to read about.
Go place your vote.

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

This film is now officially the best movie I've seen this year! Johnny Depp is great as the eternally inebriated pirate Captain Jack Sparrow. His quirky arm and paranoid eye movements are great to watch. The way he speaks and his witty remarks are excellent. This is not a movie an actor can get an Oscar nomination for, but Depp definitely deserves it. Depp was wonderful, but the rest of the cast was great as well.

Keira Knightley looks very much like Natalie Portman, which is not a bad thing at all. In fact, I noticed she was in Star Wars: Phantom Menace with Portman. She played Sabé, who ever the hell that was.

Orlando Bloom was a much better elf than wannabe pirate. He actually came off as kind of bland, but I think it fit his role as the goody goody hero. Sure he joins up with a pirate, but he is still a good boy trying to save his love.

The pirates were all natural. Some were badass while others were comedic relief. They all looked the part and acted the part.

The actual plot of the movie was very believable. I mean you have to get past the part of an evil Aztec curse, but if you believe that then the rest follows easily.

I really enjoyed the fact that the special effects were not the stars of the movie. They were used sparingly but effectively. When they were used they looked real (as real as evil, deranged, zombie pirates can look).

I recommend you stay for the entire credits. They show a little extra at the very end. It doesn't affect the movie much but is still cool to see.



Good Riddance

I've heard his show a couple times and I just can't believe the bullshit he spews. His mother should have swallowed.

Spike TV Wins

For a second I thought Spike Lee might actually win, thank god he dropped the stupid case.



Another Movie About Killer AI

I've watched Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines twice now. I enjoyed it both times. Not as good as it's predecessor Terminator 2: Judgment but still an enjoyable action film. The key word in that sentence is action. To me an action movie consists of a lot of explosions, guns, car chases, gratuitous sex scenes, one-liners, heroes, villains and more explosions. All of that built around a loosly fit plot. Action movies are not meant to make you think to much, just enjoy the explosions. T3 is an action film, T2 was more. Unfortunatly I have not watched T2 in years but memory recalls it as deep. T3 is shallow but still entertaining. It tries to engage your brain with talk about fate and destiny, but atleast to me, it failed.

I wish John Conner had been played by Edward Furlong instead of Nick Stahl, but I guess I can see Stahl as an older Furlong. The rest of the cast was appropriate.

I'm not forgetting Arnold. He looks damn good for a man his age. Almost to good. My favorite line of the movie is when he tells Claire Dane's character to "RELAX".

The one problem I did have with the film was the end. It was left wide open for a sequel. The first to Terminator movies both seemed to end with the world being saved. Again I'm recalling them from memory since I haven't watched them. T3 seems more like the first part of a double feature or even a trilogy. The film was moving along at a good pace and then it seems like the director ran out of film and told them to "wrap it up, we'll finish next year."

Part of me is happy they made a T3, but a part of me wishes they'd left it at T2. Judgment Day had a great end. Hopefully Terminator 4: He's Back* will be up to par.

Singer Barry White dead at 58

This was a big shock. Just a few days ago I was listening to his cd. No more love music from the man. It's a sad day.

Joshua Ellis - Love Songs For Bastards

I wish all cd's were this cheap, this easy to get, and for that matter this good. I hate having to pay $15+ for just a few good songs, and a bunch of shitty ones. With Bitpass you can get the tracks you want and forget the rest. And probably best of all: the creator gets most of the money. Sounds great to me.

Another plus is that the system works for things besides music. For example Scott McClouds new comic The Right Number was released for only 25 cents. A great story, good format, for 25 cents, I'm hooked

Fuck Dennis Miller

I really can't believe this. I guess I always assumed Miller was on the good guys side. When I say good guys I mean the lesser of two evils: Democrats. Oh well, he's not that funny anyways.

"I spent an amazing couple of hours with Dennis Miller," Bush said during his Los Angeles speech after Miller's routine. "He keeps you on your toes."

Like that's saying much. A ball of yarn would keep him on his toes. Fuck them both.

1st International Love Hotel Moblogging Conference

This seems like it will be fun to watch how it turns out. I need to get me a phone with a camera so I can start doing a little mobloggin. Here's the link to the real Moblogging Conference.

"The Strip"

Spike TV (The New TNN) premiered it's new adult cartoon programming block aptly named "The Strip" last night. They opened with the new Ren and Stimpy show. It's been years since I watched Ren and Stimpy back when they were on Nickelodeon, but I recall fond memories of them. They were never great cartoons but they were entertaining if slightly gross. The new show is exaggeratingly sick. It starts with them living in a homeless man's mouth where Ren has trouble sleeping. Stimpy tells Ren he has needs but Ren is to tired to fulfill them. So instead of kissing Stimpy he has Stimpy close his mouth and places a rats asshole up to Stimpy's lips. There's more homosexual innuendo between the Chihuahua and cat when Ren gets molested by the bum’s uvula (that thing that hangs in the back of your throat) and thinks it was Stimpy. He slaps Stimpy and tells him "I'm the pitcher, you're the catcher". They end up moving out of the homeless man and into a spittoon in a bar. They dine on tobacco spit, vomit, and snot. They eventually get kicked out and move back to their original quarters. This episode was very disturbing, too many gross body fluids eaten, Ren doing Stimpy doggy style (under the sheets), etc. There was no real story, and felt very drawn out. One dirty joke to the next. Not as good as the Classic Ren and Stimpy.

The second show "Gary the Rat" was a little better. It's about a lawyer who is so sleazy he wakes up as a rat one day. This episode is about him defending a tobacco company from a class action suit brought on by cancer patients. The story was kind of slow and boring, but I see potential with this cartoon. Kelsey Grammer does the voice of the rat.

The last half hour is taken up by "Stipperella". Stan Lee has done it again. This is a nice parody of superheroes, featuring Pamela Anderson as the voice of Exotica Jones. Exotica is an exotic dancer at The Tenderloins, where she is the patron's favorite stripper. She has a vibrating belly ring that alerts her when she is needed at headquarters where she is known as Agent 0069 aka Stripperella. This episode was about a plastic surgeon placing exploding breast implants in models. It was fun to watch and had good dialogue. You have to remember it's a parody or else it comes off as stupid. The girls look very hot, Jessica Rabbit hot. Me like it a lot.

In an update on Spike Lee's case against Viacom over the name Spike TV, director Spike Jones Jr. has spoken out in defense of TNN saying that if they can be sued for using it, what's to keep Spike Lee from suing him over a movie on his father titled "Spike". It's a fucked up world out there boys and girls.




This is the best movie I have seen recently. Sure I loved Hulk, X2, and a few others, but this movie just hit all the right buttons. It's funny, it's sad, it makes me want to move to Barcelona. It moved at a good clip through the entire movie and when the end came I wished for more.

I've always wanted to travel, and I've always been told to go to school, get a job and then travel when you've retired. Right, when I'm 65 I doubt I'll be able to enjoy the wonders a foreign city has to offer. I need to travel now, when I can live it up. That's my new goal, fuck school, it can wait. The world can't.

I just added a tag board to my side bar. The plan is that those of you that actually end up here, but don't really have a comment on a specific post, will say hi or something by using the tag board.

A revised edition of Stephen King's The Dark Tower I: The Gunslinger - Resumption is being relesed, to be quicly followed by the last three books of the series. All this over the next 17 months. Wow. I'm so used to waiting a minimuum of two years for the next chapter in a series (that bastard Robert Jordan). At least King has a good excuse for taking so long, I mean he did almost get killed, but the waiting is finally over.
The reason I love this series is that it is very different from others that are around. It is definitely fantasy, yet it is not set against the same backdrop everyone uses. Instead of dungeons and dragons, we're in a western, set in the future. After reading these books you have to go back and read all of King's other books to see if he's laid out any clues or references to the Dark Tower. A very engrossing read.

I must also mention (incase you haven't heard) the new Harry Potter book is out. While not as deep as the Dark Tower books it is quite enjoyable. It takes me back to my younger days when I firsted journeyed into the world of magic and fantasy with such delights as The Chronicles of Narnia and Edward Eager's Tales of Magic .

A small update on what's going on with Spike TV and the bullshit lawsuit filed by Shelton Lee. Overnight the station was able to change it's ad campaign from pushing the name to pushing the idea. They also claim to have lost approx. $17million because of the lawsuit. They get their chance to appeal in September, meaning they lose even more money. Hopefully they'll win and slap good old Shelton with a countersuit to get back their lost income. ARTICLE



I just watched The Hulk and absolutly loved it. Finally a comic book movie that looks like a comic book. The transitions Ang Lee uses from scene to scene and the superimpostion gives the affect of looking at a comic book page with live action instead of stills. Other movies have captured the essence of the characters and stories from the comics but Hulk really captures the entire comic book feel.

I was impressed with CGI. I agree Hulk doesn't look as good as Gollum from the Two Towers but I got what I expected: a big green monster in purple shorts. The only times I even thought about the CGI was the few times the camera did extreme closeups of him and then it was only a fleeting thought in the back of my head.

This is not an action film, so don't expect it to be. It's a dramatic movie by an art director. If you love great stories, love the Hulk, or love comics, you'll love this movie.


Thank you Ang Lee for not making him say "Hulk, smash!!!"

I find this hilarious. Pompous prick!



I posted the following at the Six Shooter Comix Forums page. They're the awsome guys that bring us Free Comix every month.

All the good stories have already been written.

Is that statement true? How original can something be these days? When you get an idea for a story that sounds great, do you look around to see if there's already something similar or do you just go ahead and write it?

For example a friend and I were brainstorming on characters. We both know a girl named Raven who we decided to base a character on. We read up on Ravens, mainly the Native American mythology. Raven is considered a trickster, shape shifter, greedy, etc. We then did a write up of this character. A few days later I’m reading the new Mystique book and realize her name is Raven and she's a changeling. We in no way copied her character but still came out with a very similar character (except for the blue skin).

Example #2
We're sitting around again, brainstorming. (More writing and less talking would probably be better) He starts setting up a scene for me "This person does this, then that happens, and she kills so and so blah blah blah" "Didn't we watch a show last week where that happened?" "What? Huh yea I think we did" "Fuck" "It was cool though" "Yea". Unknowingly he had fused 3 different shows into one scene.

Are there any stories left to write?



TNN wants to change it's name to Spike TV and bill itself as the first network for men. I guess they haven't heard of ESPN, but that's not the problem. The problem is egomaniac director Spike Lee. He say's they're trying to capitilize of his name. His real name isn't even Spike, it's Shelton. Fucking Shelton. He's won a temporary injunction preventing Viacom from changing TNN's name to Spike TV. Jesus Christ. He even has Johnny Cochran representing him. And to think there's a judge in this country that agree's with him. I don't believe it. Lee and Cochran need to team up and do some group suicide.

Sorry for my outburst. Included in the fine programming that will be offered by Spike TV is a new animated program from Spiderman creator Stan Lee. Striperella follows the adventures of a striper who fights crime. Come on, it's Stan Lee, you have to give it a shot. Did I mention she's voiced by Pamela Anderson? "Exotic Dancer by night, Crime Fighter later at night" Super powers, yes sir, glass cutting nipples.!!! OK, it's cheesy as shit, but atleast they still have Star Trek TNG.


Japan has always represented the future to me. Crowded, new technology, less censorship, more freedom, etc. I don't know if it's all in my mind, but it sounds so cool in so many ways. But I guess instead of being liberated the people are really just sheep who follow the next manufactured fad. Suicide as a fad? That's just mind blowing. It sounds like they're not used to doing anything alone. As an individual. Even to commit suicide they have to be part of a group. Maybe Japan doesn't sound so cool anymore.


I'm all over Kazaa right now checking out some music recommended by Joshua Ellis of Zenarchery fame. In his Citylife column he talks about the musical soundtrack for the 21st century and he lists a few albums that he would include. So far, with the exception of David Bowie, they all feel to slow, to laid back. Don't get me wrong, everyone of the albums mentioned is a great one, they just don't fit my vision of futuristic music. I imagine it faster and harder, visions of the bloodbath club scene from Blade dance in my head. Or Mos Def and Massive Attack 'I Against I' , Rammstein 'Feuer Frei', etc. Mean music. Fighting music. My view of the future is a dark, post apocolyptic one. Two different futures require two different soundtracks.

Those military boys get all the good discounts. jk ;-P

All the Bunny Ranch needs now are prime time ads on all the networks.


I use a cable modem and that means sharing a network with people in my neighborhood. I always thought it would be cool to chat with them or atleast be able to see who was around me. Now, Trepia allows you to do just that. It works like a buddy list that automatically adds other Trepia users that are in a nearby location. Unfortunatly it only works if you have an 802.11b (Wi-Fi) card, which I don't, so i'm SOL on trying it out. I'm going to look into Wi-Fi to see what it's all about. ARTICLE



Just got a comments system going. I'm using the free services offered by Blogout. Now if I have any readers, they can comment on my postings.

I found a great blog today via Peter Maass's column at MSN. I enjoyed reading about Iraq from the point of view of someone who is actually living through it. Salam Pax is not just going to pack his bags in a week or a month, and move back to his cushy condo, and onto the next news story of the day. His story is real, and doesn't have the anti or pro USA bullshit attached to it. He just tells it how he sees it.

He had a quote on his site that brings together everything I've always thought about the West.

"the West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion
but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often
forget this fact, non-Westerners never do."

Samuel P. Huntington

I've had conversations with friends on why the West (whites) came out on top of the East (everyone else). I've always said it's because they had the bigger stick. That was the only thing going for them. This quote just puts it into more academic terms.


This is just cool. You know how you have conversations that start with "What would you do with a million dollars?". After going through the Star Trek Experience a few years ago I actually replied with "Turn my house into the Enterprise." I guess someone beat me to it.
I found a good looking MT Tutorial over at Tokyo Shoes. I feel like I'm using the geocities version of blogs. I know I could pay and get the ad off the page and I"m not against paying, but MT sounds like it's where the big boys blog. That's where I want to be.

I feel so used today. I spent around $140 on a record player. Only $40 on the actual turntable, but then I needed a new stylus and an phono amp so I could use it on my home system which doesn't have a phono jack. That doesn't include records, which are cheap at $1. So I bought a few that I consider classics: Michal Jackson's Thriller LP, Moody Blues Day's of Future Passed, Beach Boys Endless Summer, and a few others. They're great albums but couldn't I just of bought them on CD or more likely, downloaded them from the internet? Oh well, if I get tired of it I'll sell it on ebay.

God, it's hot as hell outside. Peace.
Hello everyone. I've been reading blogs for about a month and I've decided to give it a try. My goal is to have a decent blog that people will actually want to read on a regular basis. If not I'll at least have a sort of journal. The coolest blog I actually check every day belongs to Joshua Ellis at Zenarchery.com I heard about it through his column in the Las Vegas City Life. I really enjoy his writing.

I was going to post a photo taken a few months ago at the Phoenix Comicon with a really hot model/porn star, Cheyenne Silver. But alas, I figured out you can't post images to blogspot. Once I get my own web space you'll definatly see it. I don't know why since I rarely look good in photos, but I'll put it up.

This is a good test post in my opinion. I'll try to publish it now and see what happens. Laterz.
