Funniest video I've seen in a while.

Random thoughts...

No real theme to this post, just some randomness.

First up, winter sucks, I've felt crappy for weeks and I'm sure that it's due to the fact that from October to March I rarely see the sun. Winter sucks hard for those of us who work nights. It's dark out when I get off work in the morning, it's dark out when I wake up and go to work in the evening. Sometimes I'll go a full week without ever really seeing the sun, summer can't come fast enough.

I found my polar opposite, her name is Val Smith and she runs this site here, www.fradical.com. Just a note Val, if you stumble upon this site while googling your own name, bad shit happened in the world before shock jocks, rap music, violent video games and porn. Ever since one Neanderthal man bashed another over the head with a rock to get some food from him our history has been paved in blood. It didn't start circa 1990. Poor black people in the ghettos didn't get the idea to start shooting at people from rap music. Girls got raped centuries before porn existed. But hey, whatever, if you have nothing better to do with your time than fill our politicians and civil servants mailboxes with 40 page missives about whatever particular bug you have up your ass this week, more power to you, I wish I had the energy. Granted I'd use that energy to make sure "I had too much to drink" isn't a valid excuse for driving like a maniac and killing people, or making sure kiddie rapists never see the outside of a prison ever again, but that's just me. Your thing is trying to take away peoples right to free speech and I applaud your efforts and wish you the best of luck. I'd never tell you that you don't have a right to say the things you do in the way you try and inflict your morals on other people, that's the difference between us and this great country is filled with more people who think like me, then think like you, thank the creator. Ramen!

Next up, somehow I doubt my blog is being read extensively throughout the hotter, sandier, more oppressive parts of the world, but just in case, let me say this. They're just fucking cartoons, you can stop killing one another. No Danes have been killed in all this protesting, just your fellow Muslims. Stop using these cartoons as an excuse to burn down McDonald's and KFC's. For once the American's didn't do it, and for that matter those restaurants aren't even owned by Americans, they're owned by local people, probably Muslims whose lives you are destroying and it is in no way punishing the cartoonists or making you look any less like a bunch of blood thirsty terrorists which is of course the perception that started the whole mess to begin with.

Lastly, I've been kicking around the idea of starting a photoblog. Would anyone actually want to see pictures of random crap I've taken with my outdated digital camera and then compressed even further so they could be presented in a bloglike forum? Or would anyone perhaps be interested in contributing pictures of their own to such a project? Just something that's been rattling around in my head as of late.

A quick movie review

I bought The Aristocrats this weekend. I really wanted to see it when it was in theatres but unfortunately I live somewhere near the ass end of the world and it didn't play here. All in all I have to say I was a bit disappointed, I don't think the movie lived up to the hype. I found it to be overly repetitive, even more so than a documentary about one joke should be. It does have some great moments in it, Sarah Silverman and Gilbert Gottfried stand out as masters of their craft, they both have such excellent timing and delivery that I'm sure they could get huge laughs reading the phone book. The clip of the kids from South Park doing the joke is as laugh out loud funny as anything that they do on the show. I'd give it a 7 out of 10.

Ready to go

True to my word I went out this morning and bought a Sirius receiver. I went with the Starmate because it seemed to be the easiest to transport between the house and the car. Installing the antenna and holder in the car was a snap and took less than an hour and I didn't even have to wait on hold to have my subscription activated. The service seems very good and there is definitely a channel for everyone whether you like rock, metal, jazz, classical, R&B, talk, comedy, news...and the list goes on. No more annoying DJ banter ("caller number 9 wins tickets to Styx"), just nonstop commercial free music. Glee!

It's a joyous day believers in free expression. Sirius Canada has finally come to their senses and decided to put the best interest of their business ahead of whatever satanic deal they made with the previous Canadian regime to get their license.
