Relevant linkage.

So, since the republicans are apparently intent on destroying the country, I thought of an interesting site that might be relevant.

Exit Mundi

Instead of the end of a country, this site has a collection of scenarios for the end of the universe. Some farfetched, others not so much. I found this site years ago and have always found it fascinating.

Give it a read and let me know what you think.

Look at you, being all e-trendy.

I'm no stranger to the internet and its assortment of memes. Both the currently popular ones and the not currently popular but still repeated endlessly anyway ones, but there are a few that I find particularly annoying lately. Here's a list.

First world problems! This one is a response to anyone who complains about something minor. It's supposed to be clever, I think. It's not.

Hipster! A currently trendy pseudo-insult.

Neckbeard! Another currently trendy pseudo-insult.

OMG UR GOTZ TROLLED! If you have to say that you're trolling, you aren't. This is commonly used to try and cover a fuck up or failed argument.

Come at me BRO! This or anything with the word "BRO" attached to it just needs to stop. You're just embarrassing yourselves.

I N C E P T I O N! Or any other V A R I A N T of the meme. It's really, really old now.

Am I doing this right? If you have to ask that, whatever you're doing, the answer is no.

That's all that comes to me at the moment, I'm tired as hell. Yes, I keep weird hours. I know. I'm a weird person... have you read this blog before? If so, you'd already know this.

Movie Recommendation: The Final Cut

I'm not usually much of a movie buff as I prefer TV shows and gaming, but earlier I ran across an interesting movie on Hulu. This movie, The Final Cut, stars Robin Williams who plays a cutter.

No, not the emo type. It's set in the near-future where children can have devices implanted, known as "ZOE's" at birth that will record everything that happens in their entire lives. After their death, the implant is retrieved and a "cutter" will sort through the footage and cut it down into a kind-of "clip show" of someone's life for the family to watch at a "remembering."

I find the story to be really interesting and it only gets better the further in you go. The acting is great, especially Robin Williams, and the movie will leave you guessing even at the end. I love movies like this and I really wish we had more of them. Give it a chance. Let me know what you think.

Attention News Media.

Enough with Casey Anthony. I get it, she murdered her daughter, I completely agree.

Honestly, I do. I think she did it. Even the jurors seemed to think she probably did it, but didn't see enough evidence to convict her beyond a reasonable doubt. Fine, whatever. The system works sometimes and sometimes it doesn't. I think OJ was guilty too, but it happens.

Not that I'm not as saddened by the innocent verdict on the murder/abuse charges as anyone else, but I think I've heard enough about this bullshit by now. Haven't you?

I turn on the news and I'm likely to either see "OMG WHERE'S SHE AT NOW?" or parts of the trial being replayed, again.

Perhaps the only thing I learned from this whole thing is that Nancy Grace, host of a show on CNN is a screeching harpy who talks over her guests constantly. A lot of people, apparently, already knew that. I was only unfortunate enough to learn that information during the trial coverage.

And please, media, don't cover this shit for the next 6 months. Following her around, speculating on what interviews she might do or where she might travel. Etc, etc. I don't give a shit. I really don't. She can go make a million dollars or jump in the ocean with Osama for all I care. Get over it already.

Obama is mad. Good.

I'm sure you've heard about this, if not...


(Reuters) - President Barack Obama abruptly ended a tense budget meeting on Wednesday with U.S. Republican leaders by walking out of the room, a Republican aide familiar with the talks said.

I hope he's finally mad. I hope he's fucking pissed off. Why? Well maybe that'll remove some of the naivety that, I believe, he's had so far.

It was easy to see from the beginning. Obama thought that if he came to Washington with a level head, sound logic and a respect for all sides of an argument he could really get things done. Really change the way the system works. What a stupid idea.


The republican party is not something you can just reason with. They don't want honest, reasonable discussion and debate. They want to oppose Democrats, period. They want to make everyone think that Obama is some kind of tax hiking, job killing socialist nazi boogie-man. Even if that means fucking the whole country financially and everyone in it. It's all about 2012 and damn everything and everyone else. 

THOSE are the kind of people he's dealing with and I hope he finally understands it.

A couple of shitty drawings.

So I've done a bit more drawing practice here and there, although not enough. The heat here has been annoying as shit.

But here are a couple of drawings I made from Super Paper Mario.

Shitty Mario.

Slightly less shitty Princess Peach.

The date on the Mario image is upside down, as the image was drawn that way. So I flipped it upside down in the Gimp so you could properly view it here.

I'll keep practicing some here and there, maybe get a little better. Or maybe not.

This post could potentially cure cancer one day maybe perhaps possibly maybe. Maybe.

Attention internet. Please stop giving me links to articles about amazing not-discoveries about potential technologies that might, one day, do something awesome.

I swear, at least once a week on popular content aggregation sites cancer is cured, solar panels become eleventy-six percent more efficient and someone invents a magic powder that soaks up oil and makes your ass smell like posies.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy reading about new technologies as much as most people, perhaps more so than most of the people here in the south. The problem is seeing this stuff CONSTANTLY that promises the world and then just vanishes forever.

So, internet, do me a favor. Unless something is in a working state or is, at most, a year from being somewhere where I can buy it, just save it.

I got a great idea yesterday.

So, yesterday, we were at Wal-Mart. In the parking lot, I saw a hearse. On the side windows it had "for sale" written.

Suddenly I realized that we should buy it. We would buy a coffin and keep it in the hearse. Then when we went shopping for groceries, they would be stored in the coffin and transported into the house that way.

Every now and then the neighbors would see us pull up in our hearse and transport a coffin into the house. If they asked what was in the coffin, we would answer: ...food.
