Mad props to Olbermann

I was channel surfing today and ended up watching this show. I totally dug this guy's speech about Bush, and several hours later found that it had been posted up on onegoodmove.org. Olbermann reams Bush about his hollow or even fictional "victories" over terrorist plots.

Awesome quote:
"They go into the collective consciousness as firm evidence of your diligence of the necessity, of your ham-handed treatment of our liberties, of the unavoidability of the 3, 075 Americans dead in Iraq. Congratulations, sir, you are the hero of Jaws 2."

Keith Olbermann's Special Comment on Bush's 2007 State of the Union address.

(Kudos for his use of the word "derring-do." And the scathing sarcasm with all those "sirs."

...But what's with him saying "The Internets"? I noticed another guy on this channel also saying that.)

RuneScape Pimpin'



These are my character's exp and lvls for the various skills. I'm currently trying to get my Herblore and Agility up to 56, so I can finish a couple quests.

I'm nearly broke from training my Construction skill. That carpenter is a cheat. But my character's house is getting pretty cool.

Kokigami

Kokigami is, apparently, the ancient Japanese art of dressing up your penis. Kokigami: Performance Enhancing Adornments for the Adventurous Man is the website for the book of the same name. You should check out "The Presentation: Playing" section for the suggested dialogue and pelvic movements for each character. The "Experiencing" section is also something to read.

I don't know whether this is truly an "ancient art." Just the name- KOK-igami- makes me doubt its heritage.

I also can't imagine this ever being more sexy than comical. Plus, how many guys would decide on their own to make their cock look like a rose? Or a moth? The manliest designs this book offers include a fire truck, space shuttle, and private investigator.

Yet another amuzing thing that the Internet has to offer.

(This link is work safe; there are no pictures of penises.)

Blades of Glory

This actually looks really funny. IGN: Blades of Glory Trailer

Labels: ,

Birthday countdown begins--

--well, not really. I'm not counting down. It is going to be a sad, sad day on January 31st. I'm almost 23 and I still have no real idea of what I'm gonna do after graduation in June. All I know is that I'm sick of school. And that I like puppies. But who doesn't?

I watched Frontline last night. I love that show. What is it about Frontline that makes me watch so intently regardless about how uninteresting I would normally find the topic? (I swear, months ago when I watched the Frontline on aging I only could rip my eyes off the screen during the pledge breaks. Alright, I'm exaggerating, but only slighty.)

Last night they rebroadcasted the episode about the Taliban. Know what? I think it's kinda strange how all these Muslim men are preaching their prehistoric ideology (oppression and ownership of women, war, etc) while they are using camcorders and hauling dialysis machines from cave to cave. If they are so against modern technology and the materialism that comes with it, shouldn't they stop using it? If they had a large amount of power in a capitalist society, I don't think they'd be pitching a fuss like they are now

My philosophy professor at West Valley mentioned his idea of societal evolution. Societies go through several stages, including fuedalism, up 'til democratic capitalism (so far, at least). We're trying to force the Middle East to skip several stages- from warlords to one man, one vote. Skipping evolutionary stages does not work. At the least, it causes identity crises and societal unrest; at the most, there are quadripedal ex-fish that can't breathe air or swim and are born doomed to flop around in the mud until their imminent death.

Another thought I had was that conservative Repubs in this country are acting a lot like the Taliban, with their censorship and "morality." Acting like the Taliban is unAmerican! To prove that they aren't terrorists, these owners of the forces of production need to start scripting nip slips! We've gotta change slogans to be more vulgar and in-your-face! More male nudity! Fewer euphemisms!

Yeah, that was a random rant.

Been a while

I am not dead. Let me just refute any possible rumors of my deceased-ness right now.

Okay. Now that that has been taken care of there are some things I feel like mentioning.

1. I am back at school. I am taking evil Statistical Methods again as well as Sociology of Violence, War, and Peace.

2. I spent New Year's Eve with Curtis, Anna, and Sam. We watched Clerks II and Silent Hill. Let me tell you, Silent Hill was an awesome movie. That is something that I don't usually say about horror films, since I never watch horror films because I am a wuss. But I wanted to watch Silent Hill because it is based on the video games (none of which I've ever played, but I've downloaded a lot of music from).

Some things that really impressed me about the film are the colors used (especially the stark white of the ashes) and the sound. The muted heartbeats and the music (all the songs, I think, were from the various games, and I recognized several). If you want to listen to something pretty and/or creepy, definitely check out Akira Yamaoka's work on Silent Hill 4: The Room. "Nightmarish Waltz" is one my very favorites, as well as "Room of Angel" with Mary Elizabeth McGlynn's vocals.

3. Remind me to never eat a Choco-Taco in public when I'm with Curtis again. He kept cracking jokes. "Get your fingers out of your taco" and "You must really love your taco" and "Your taco looks really creamy."

4. I had a very erotic dream the other night. Two guys and me. (I won't tell ya'll who they were.) It was *very* hot. I guess that years of reading erotica have given my subconscious mind a lot of material to work with. (I can almost hear you snickering, Brian. I can also imagine pretty much any response to this that you want to make, so no reply is necessary.)

5. My bamboo is dying. There is something in the tap water killing it, I think.

6. I've gotten my total combat level in Runescape up past 80. My lowest skill level is still 13. But who needs to craft runes, anyway? Also made a few new friends on the game the other day. One guy was especially cool, a 16-year-old kid from England. I find it funny that if I made a graph of the ages of people who play Runescape it would be bimodal; seems that everyone is either 17 and younger or over 65. (Wheee! Some of my stat class seems to be sticking in my brain!)

Even though I'm currently level 81, people still try to PK me. Know what, you unprovoked PKing bullies? You keep that up, you are going to die miserable and alone. To quote some guy from high school: "I hope you get AIDS and die of rectal bleeding."

Okay, I'm not serious about that last part. I'd never wish for anyone to get AIDS, and I'd only wish for someone to die if the person is really evil and making thousands of lives miserable. I just think that that is a hilarious and inventive curse.

7. Brian is sending me Rammstein CDs. Totally awesome! I watched the beginning of XXX recently (for all my high-brow cinema biases, I seem to have a weakness for Vin Diesel movies) and started craving more of Rammstein.

(I'll just throw my second reason in for coveting Rammstein, too, though it disgraces me.) A week or two ago I watched the first half of the South Park movie on Comedy Central's Secret Stash. Since then, that "Uncle Fucker" song has gotten stuck in my head about twenty times. I have to listen to Rammstein to get it out. Then I have angry German metal stuck in my head. What a relief! I'd rather go around muttering "feuer frei!" or "mein herz brennt" than "shut your fucking face, uncle fucker."

What does "mein herz brennt" mean? Let me check... "My heart burns." (I'm thankful that it wasn't German for "uncle fucker" otherwise I would've been screwed.)

8. My housemate's boyfriend was over last weekend. Let me tell ya, she is a screamer. I walked into the apartment, heard them going at it in the shower, giggled and tried to ignore it, then maybe twenty minutes later I hear them from her bedroom. The sounds of sex do not help me do my stat homework. I quickly packed my stuff and spent the night at Curtis'. I usually wouldn't mention other people having sex on my blog, but they invaded my privacy first. At least I allow them their anonymity.

9. I think I should extend this list to reach 10. 10 is a good number. But I have nothing to write, so this is just filler.

10. I spent over five hours straight writing today! I was so in the zone that I barely had time to eat dinner before class. Woohoo, go me!
