Why is this game so funny?

I've been playing this game for awhile and I laugh and laugh everytime the dude slams up against the frozen ice wall. Try it out, it's stupidly addicting.

Comeback baby

You know, I just can't say enough good things about the band Metric. I know, you're probably thinking to yourself "Whoa, like, where the hell has this guy been? Metric is SO 2005!" Yeah well screw you whoever you are, Metric is undying, unending, and their album "Live it Out" will live on even after the local radiostation kills their hit songs by unrelentingly throwing them at us at least once every hour. I never f#$@ing understood that mentality, I guess it goes along with "If X = good, then X * 5000 = SUPER good and unsurpassed wealth" train of thought.

I recently ( I know, once again way behind the times) purchased said album, and I thorougly dig it. Thoughful and twisted lyrics with a great voice and kickass band... what's not to love? Unfortunately I can't listen to "Monster Hospital" and "Poster of a Girl" because the bastards at the local radiostation complete f#@$ed up that up for me.

My favorite tunes lately are "Empty", "Handshakes", and "Glass Ceiling".

Ok, enough of that, maybe soon I'll post something else... I've been a right slackass lately.

Do you think that there is a direct corelation between buying a new car and suddenly having very little to blog about?

btw, the new car rocks, even though I've already acquired 2 or 3 rock chips in the hood and a little pit in the windshield. Stupid road construction. OH yes and my first Door on Saturday night, stupid Hyundai driver parked in a fire exit too close to me for his passengers to get out.

I retaliated though... oh you bet I did.

Don't Honk after 2

Ok so I learned a lesson on the weekend, even though I don't want to admit it... wait I guess I just did. ANYWAYS

I was coming home from a gig Saturday night at the usual 2:30ish am and I made a left at an intersection with 2 left turn lanes. The Fit is tonnes of fun so I whipped it around there pretty quick, and the guy beside me tried to do the same in his Jeep Grand Cherokee. Well he lost, and swirved into my lane in front of me.

Wait now for a second. What was your first instinct there, did you think "honk", "finger", "swear", or "shrug it off"? Truthfully, most people I know would do what I did. Honk. Not a long honk, but a honk nonetheless.

Turns out that wasn't the best thing to do. I drove up to the next intersection (an overpass light), it was red for a bit more and then quickly green, so I took off. The guy in the black Jeep GC pulls up beside me (obviously to glare at me or such things), I didn't even look at him, looked down and noticed that I was speediing a bit, stepped on the brake a little harder than usual and then pulled in behind him. RIght there the guy should have thought "He has a full view of my license plate, perhaps I should watch what I do." Well he didn't.

We both come up to the next intersection and of course Karma catches up to me or something because it just fucking HAS to change red. I'm in the left hand turn lane and the black GC is in the lane to the right of me. I made the mistake of looking over and this big black guy gives me a menacing look and gives me the finger. He obviously thought this was enough to freak me out, well it didn't. I shrugged and made a motion of swirving with an imaginary steering wheel, well that just made him snap. He starts yelling at me, saying stuff like "You think that's funny motherfucker? You bleepity bleep bleep bleepin' bleep etc. etc.". I just turned and looked at the light, luckily it switched to green because I think the guy was getting out of his car. As I was starting to go I heard a bonk on the window, I think the jackass threw something at it like a cigarette butt or something. Maybe it was part of his brain that he burnt out on cocaine that night.

It never ceases to amaze me how fucking moronic people can be. What went from a jerk reaction honking of the horn could have turned out into some half brain fuckhead kicking/beating on my car or smashing the window. The real lesson here is don't honk your horn at people after 2... possibly even earlier, and if you do don't make eye contact or react ... pretend you're a scared little girl.

What would you do?

The news coming out of Lebanon and Israel is so mixed up and slanted that many times it's hard to see who's telling the real story, what's really happening.

You can't deny though that the recent videos from this guy are disturbing, and not just the content but the fact it's entirely staged to over-emphasize the death of civilians. The same civilians that they are using as shields when they fire rockets from their backyards and balconies of apartment buildings. Why would you load the dead into ambulances? Why were they not looking for the wounded and trapped, or were those folk already taken care of before the propoganda video was filmed?

I was previously disturbed by the amount of damage done by Israel, but after further consideration if I was in their place how would I fight these people ? How would I defend my country against those who hide under womens skirts to fire their machineguns and rockets?

War is horror, war sucks, war is created by people who are under the impression they are somehow superior to others by religion, race or otherwise. How do you stop them though? I keep hearing the phrase World War III and I shudder and I want to hide in my basement.

Thanks to Willow tree for the heads up on the videos. My thoughts are with her and her 2 boys who are in the Israeli military.

I think I'll be travelling to London this week... maybe I'll bring my bottle of Gin on in carry-on luggage.

Oh... wait... no

Over a week of silence and I come back with this? sheesh
