Heya Fea

May 26th, 2009 (12:00 am)

Yeah, got your message but I deleted all the stupid Payperpost ads I could find and your message was in those comments.

Sorry I been so absent. In a major funk, and work, plus the lack thereof, is pissing me off. All the other crap on top of that, well, I tend to go all hermitty sometimes.

I'm thinking of turning this into a pizza delivery guy blog so I can vent about all the assholes I meet. I don't understand how you can be sitting on your fat ass, have someone bring food directly to your lazy ass, on a major national holiday, and not tip them a single penny, or even worse, tip them like 35 cents. I think the last time I got stiffed this many times was on Easter. Just reaffirms my belief that people suck.

Used to be you had to kill, clean and cook your own damn food. These are the people who would go all Darwin and the world would rejoice that their faulty-ass genes couldn't pollute the pool like so many Baby Ruths.

A Bullet Through Gelatin

So cool. I love the way you can really see the whorls of air billowing through the gel. Like "bullet time" in the matrix for real.

I gotta say that I'm tired of seeing people eat it on their skateboards, beef it on their bikes or faceplant on their scooter. Makes me glad I never really got caught up in the skater thing or tried any majorly radical moves on my bmx. In fact, I think the day I stopped jumping big ramps was the day I saw some kid break his tailbone wiping out on a ramp in the park. Not pretty. The problem is, everytime I go to my favorite video sites like Flabber.nl, there are tons of videos of people doing facegrinds or snapping limbs off.

The only thing I hate worse are the videos of people fighting, especially gangsta wigger girls scrapping. Turns my stomach really.

Gotta Love Florida

November 12th, 2007 (12:29 pm)

The radio show Loveline used to run a segment called Florida or Germany. The idea being that the weird and strange stories all seem to come out of Florida or Germany. Sad but true I suppose.

Fla. man jailed for jaywalking

BRADENTON, Fla. - A man was in jail Saturday after refusing to sign a $15 jaywalking ticket two days earlier.

Leroy Franklin Cladd Jr. was cited for not using a crosswalk late Thursday night. He balked at signing the ticket, a misdemeanor that landed him in jail. He was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time, police said.

Cladd was being held at the Manatee County jail on $250 bond.

Fun Fun

Well, after being unemployed for 3 weeks I had to find work. Can't be without a paycheck for too long when you've got a sorta wife and 3 kids. The job market sucks. No matter what the Bush administration says about his friggin "robust" economy, I got laid off because of his "robust" economy and no one is hiring because of his "robust" economy. I'd like to bust him in his "robust" face.

So anyway, I needed a job. Always wanted to deliver pizza. Yep, Pizza Hut delivery. I like it a lot actually, but it's only about half I made before, even with good tips.

The View

September 21st, 2007 (03:36 pm)

How is it that this show still has any kind of following? How is it that they can't seem to find a co-host with a brain? How does a person like this make it through life? The sad thing is not that she's hosting a show that women respect. The sad thing is she's procreated. Had chidren, for all you View watchers.

I mean really. "Is the world flat? I've never thought about it. I'll tell you what I've thought about; how to feed my child."

Yeeaah. So, in all the years you went to school (I'm assuming she went to school...), you never learned that the world was round? Those pictures from the moon showing the earth, you never saw those? The word, circumnavigate? Oh wait, if you don't know whether the world is flat or not, you're clearly too stupid to know that word. Ok, how about the tv show "Big Blue Marble". I give up.

Uhh, yeah...

September 21st, 2007 (12:41 pm)

Continuing our coverage, a man was arrested for hitting his wife in the back of the head with an onion...which was the style at the time...

Yes, he was arrested. Which means, not only did he actually throw an onion at his wife, his wife called the cops over it... and she pressed charges and had him arrested. And the cops actually arrested him.

Taxpayer money well spent I say! Assault with a deadly vegetable! Forget about that suspicious family that's had 400 police calls to their trailer in the last 3 years and who are holding a woman hostage for the purposes of rape and torture! HE HIT HER WITH AN ONION!!!

The full story from The Human Show and Yahoo

Oh by the way, thanks for taking the time to report this AP. Never mind the important stuff like the time my ex wife hit me with a potato!

Flaming Lips

September 7th, 2007 (11:40 pm)

I'm tired of being teased!!

I had been waiting for years for them to come to Florida...

They played there a month after we moved to Phoenix.
My friend Jake got to see them.

I was checking their schedule and it showed they were playing in Vegas! Sweet!!
When I went to check - no tickets available from the ticket agency, nor the venue. I wrote the online site that announced it and instead of telling me what was up, they simply took the listing off. Errrrrr.

Sooo, Fred Thompson for Prez?

September 7th, 2007 (11:34 pm)

Fred Thompson, the man who made a name for himself, supposedly handing Nixon the the executioner, even though the smoking gun question, "...are you aware of the installation of any listening devices in the Oval Office ..." was anticipated, since it had already been asked in closed session.

Thompson was a tool of the White House, even though he was often an unwitting one. He even went as far as to tip off the White Housethat the Senate knew about the tapes.

Tucker Carlson Has a Hissy Fit While Defending David Vitter

September 6th, 2007 (02:56 pm)

Wow, Tucker Carlson is the biggest hypocrite in the media right now. Telling reporters that they should give the man a break, get out of his personal life, when that PUBLIC politician was using PUBLIC policy to legislate OUR PRIVATE lives. And now when he is shown to be a lying, hypocritical a-hole and gets caught going to prostitutes, Carlson has the ignorant and arrogant nerve to tell the press that they should leave him alone? Amazing. How that guy still has a job is beyond me.

The amazing thing about this entire thing, amazing in a good way, is that he's on the same network that Ken Olberman is. MSNBC.

So much for biased media. So much for the liberal label the right keeps throwing at press organizations. Clearly the most "Fair and Balanced" network, not FOX, the most BIASED tool for the right there is.

Got an email from my very first girlfriend! We're talking 1981. Last time I talked to her was when I broke up with her in '82. She's divorced too, living in CA. 2 kids. Sent me some pics. Can't help wonder if she's fishing lol. If I was single that would have been cool. I have always wondered what would have happened if we hadn't broke up. First loves and all. Oh well, was nice to hear from her anyway.

Labor Day

September 3rd, 2007 (11:29 am)

Ah fun. Our national day off from Laboring, only to labor further, cleaning the house, doing laundry...feh.

Work's going well, though the company I work for is so disfunctional. They have no idea how to motivate people. In fact, their ideas on motivation are actually quite disheartening. It's like no one there has ever learned how to properly manage people. The only thing saving their asses is the fact that we are all artists and just thrilled to be getting paid to paint. For that, most will put up with any amount of stupidity.

I was driving home today, listening to thenews like I always do, when "comedian" Tim Bedore came on. Sadly, the label, "comedian" will, for most people, especially conservatives, give many the excuse to discount what he has to say, but the truth is the truth no matter who says it.

I noticed that when the issue of the bridge collapse and the proposal to add a gas tax to fix our infrastructure issues came to GW's desk, he turned it around as a dig at the Democratically run congress, saying that they need to look at how the money they already get is spent. Amazingly I agree with W on this one, but his turning of the blame to the left is screwed up, since the Dems have only had control for a few months, have been blocked at every turn by fillibustering Cons, and dimwit vetoes everything they send him. Not to mention the fact that the Right has had complete control of Congress for about 6 years. Where were they spending that money? More toll booths? Fences for the border?

Anyway, back to Tim. His commentary was one of those moments where someone is saying exactly what you've been thinking for years and when they finish talking, you jump up and scream, "Hell Yeah!!". Only, I used a different word.

Here's what Mr. Bedore had to say:

"I live just three miles away from the bridge that collapsed in Minneapolis last week, so perhaps, more intensely than some of you, I am asking the question "What the hell has happened to our infrastructure?"

Some of the reasons our infrastructure has been ignored and that bridge went down are, "Government is not a solution to our problem, government is the problem." That's a Ronald Reagan quote.

The constant ridiculing of tax-and-spenders and the "It's your money. You earned it, you should keep it" drum beat of talk radio. The union-busting, outsourcing, we-can-do-America-on-the-cheap philosophy that has infected corporate America, school boards, state legislatures . . . all of us.

People say this is not the time for finger pointing. Is it a coincidence the very people who say that are the ones who screwed things up? If you ever intend to use a bridge in the future, this is precisely the time to ask, "Has conservatism screwed up America?"

Now, conservatism can be very useful. Conservatism is a valuable voice in the process, putting the brakes on social engineering run amok. But having conservativism's short-term, bottom-line, give-the-people-only-what-they-think-they-need-now approach as our governing theme has been a giant bust.

How's Reagan's service economy looking to you now? How much of your $200, $300 tax cut would you give back to know that bridge you cross every day has been checked out, and the money necessary to keep it safe has been spent?

Middle class, have you gotten rich off the trickle-down economy? How are those tax cuts to the rich working out for you, middle class?

My fellow Americans, things that work, like bridges, cost money. Things that work really well, cost lots of money. Things that work really well and don't break because they've been inspected, maintained, improved, replaced, cost lots and lots of money. Tax money.

My daughter was on a school bus that crossed that bridge a few weeks before it went down. Now is indeed the time to point fingers and give a failing grade to the political philosophy that says we can run America on the cheap."

Speaking of money being tight. What a great time for the car to break down. I suppose it's my fault for not being more careful in the Phoenix summer heat. It's been 110+ on a regular basis and I should have checked the coolant levels more often. The radiator died yesterday on the way home. I limped to a gas station and filled the coolant reservoir up and it helped a bit. Just enough to limp to a Midas. $940!! for a radiator. Feh...

Been a long time since I posted anything.

Not much new going on, really. Work is going well. I love getting paid to paint, even though I don't always like what I have to paint. It's still cool. Standing all day is not. I am not sure if it's affecting my back or if it's something else, but I've been in a good deal of pain lately. Too much ibuprofen as a result. I need to find a good chiropractor here.

Kid's doing well in school. She got good grades last year, except for a C in math. She's good in math but like her dad, doesn't "apply herself". Yeah yeah. Hard to be stern about somethign I was guilty of myself. She's still dead set on going to school in Florida but I wish she'd think about other options. Not that I don't want her going to school there, I just want her to consider other opportunities that might be much better for her. A narrow focus is not always good.

Linda and the boys are doing well too. Now that school's back on things are kinda back to a normal schedule. The vacation from kids over the summer was kinda nice, but the expense of sending 3 kids away has been trying, and since I'm not getting support anymore (and haven't been for about 5 months) money's tight.

Saw it tonight. Damn...

That movie kicked so much ass it should be arrested. Seriously. I was expecting a lot and it delivered. I do have to say that I saw too much of it beforehand though. There were not many surprises. But it was still excellent. The only surprise was that it lived up to my expectations.

I need to head to the museum

March 5th, 2007 (09:09 pm)

There are two really cool shows here in Phoenix right now and I need to get out and see them. First, there's the Body Works exhibit with the plasticized cadavers propped up in "interesting" poses. It's kinda gross, but still a bit fascinating.

And then there's the Rembrandt show. Rembrandt is one of my favorite artists and I've only seen a couple of his paintings in person. Apparently this show has a few of his more obscure pieces, one being a rare still life.
