Courtney Love is still gross.
Really, really gross.

Here comes the bride

I was totally excited to see Tim Burton's The Corpse Bride, I've been waiting months to see it and I wasn't disappointed. This movie is amazing.
I'm a huge fan of stop motion and this one has reach a new level of excellence. Don't go into it expecting a new Nightmare before Christmas though, this is definitely it's own movie with that classic Tim Burton style that we've all come to know and love.
The Corpse Bride absolutely get a thumbs up, 4 stars and any other endorsement I have.

One of my favorite parts of halloween is carving the pumpkins. Mine seem to get more and more intricate every year because I feel some sick need to out-do my pumpkin from the previous year.
Every now and again I stumble across someone who blows my mind with their carvings and what not. Scott Cummins has done exactly that. His pumpkins are mind blowingly awesome. You can check out more of his stuff here


I found this amazing company a couple of years ago, their furniture is awesome and they've yet to make a piece that I don't want. (Actually I have a piece similar to the picture.) All of their pieces are made out of coffins and they're gorgeous.
You can check them all out at


Yay, it's October! Holloween is by far my favorite holiday (don't bother telling me it's not a holiday because I don't give a rats ass, it's still my favorite.) and it's almost here!
Anyway, until the end of October, expect to be seeing lots of halloween stuff around here.
And on that note, here's the best (and by best I mean hilarious) Thundercats costume ever!

For all the nerds in the crowd

I've just discovered a new book, The Physics of Superheros.
It's definately one for the comic book readers and people who like to bitch about how stupid they are.

Back again

Sorry I haven't updated in a while, it's been busy around here.
Kt's wedding is at the end of the week, make-up to get ready, new roommate, Babylon 5, work... it's been a full (and odd) couple of weeks.
Narf is nearly finished moving all her stuff into the house, which is awesome. I'm really happy to have her living here and she's been tons of fun already. She's also managed to get me hopelessly hooked on Babylon 5, of which she's been a long time fan and I had only ever seen in passing. I think she's discovered that I have a horribly addictive personality.
Halloween is fast approaching and I'm starting to get into panic mode (closely related to "psychotic" and a not too distant cousin of "ludicrous speed"). Matt's face is finally casted and the sculpting has begun. Hopefully I should be finished soon - I doubt it, but a girl can dream, can't she?
Anyway, it's been crazy, but hopefully I can find more time to update soon.

From me to you 5

If you want something and don't act, you'll never get it. Trust me, regretting not acting is infinitely more painful than working to get what you want.

Watch what you wear

I found this artical this moring, just thought I share it.

Power-dressing man leaves trail of destruction

SYDNEY (Reuters) - An Australian man built up a 40,000-volt charge of static electricity in his clothes as he walked, leaving a trail of scorched carpet and molten plastic and forcing firefighters to evacuate a building.

Frank Clewer, who was wearing a woolen shirt and a synthetic nylon jacket, was oblivious to the growing electrical current that was building up as his clothes rubbed together.

When he walked into a building in the country town of Warrnambool in the southern state of Victoria Thursday, the electrical charge ignited the carpet.

"It sounded almost like a firecracker," Clewer told Australian radio Friday.

"Within about five minutes, the carpet started to erupt."

Employees, unsure of the cause of the mysterious burning smell, telephoned firefighters who evacuated the building.

"There were several scorch marks in the carpet, and we could hear a cracking noise -- a bit like a whip -- both inside and outside the building," said fire official Henry Barton.

Firefighters cut electricity to the building thinking the burns might have been caused by a power surge.

Clewer, who after leaving the building discovered he had scorched a piece of plastic on the floor of his car, returned to seek help from the firefighters.

"We tested his clothes with a static electricity field meter and measured a current of 40,000 volts, which is one step shy of spontaneous combustion, where his clothes would have self-ignited," Barton said.

"I've been firefighting for over 35 years and I've never come across anything like this," he said.

Firefighters took possession of Clewer's jacket and stored it in the courtyard of the fire station, where it continued to give off a strong electrical current.

David Gosden, a senior lecturer in electrical engineering at Sydney University, told Reuters that for a static electricity charge to ignite a carpet, conditions had to be perfect.

"Static electricity is a similar mechanism to lightning, where you have clouds rubbing together and then a spark generated by very dry air above them," said Gosden.

From me to you 4

Driving is a privilege, not a right. People who drive like assholes should be strung up by their pubic hairs and zapped with cattle prods.

Making a U-turn at the lights is illegal and it's illegal for a reason. If you do it despite that, don't flip off the people you nearly hit.

The acceleration lane is for accelerating. You cannot merge into traffic that is going faster than you. Coming to a full stop is definitely not going to help. If you're afraid to go faster than 40, stay the hell off the highway.

The passing lane (that would be the left lane on the highway) is (oddly enough) for passing, if you're not passing anyone (or, god forbid, going slower than everyone) then you belong in the right lane. If you can't tell you're right from left invest in a bus pass.

Tailgating is not an effective way to make someone speed up, in fact it may just have the opposite effect. If you don't like the speed someone is going, go around.

The turning lane is for people who are turning... it seems obvious, I know, but a lot of people seemed to be confused on this point.

The left turning lane is for people turning left and the right for people turning right. Turing left from the right turning lane, jumping three lanes of traffic and cutting off the people who are actually in the left turning lane is not acceptable. Again, if you can't tell right from left, invest in a bus pass.

I wish I was making this up

This is (aparently) a serious photo of a note Bush was writting.
Bush needs a potty break.

The end is near

Apparently Britney Spears has popped out her hell spawn. I believe this is one of the signs of the apocalypse. Actually I'm surprised that at the moment of birth the earth didn't just open up and the mouth of hell didn't swallow us all up.
Kevin Federlaine has now "fathered" thrice (that we're aware of), I think everyone would feel a lot better if he was just forced into some kind of sterilization procedure. No one that useless (or hideous and with such awful fashion sense for that matter) should be allowed more than one kid, let alone three.
Now if you'll excuse me for a minute I feel the urge to vomit, and I'd rather not have to clean chunks out of my keyboard later.

Happy Birthday!

It was Kt's birthday yesterday... So happy birthday lady! Hope it was a good one!


My head hurts. Alot. I'd like to be taking some of these, but I took some weak ass painkillers earlier so I'm going to have to wait a bit before I do.
This is all the fault of some stupid woman who decided to wear some horrible perfume out in public. Thank you very much, you bitch.
I hate having perfume allergies, I think it may very well be the most annoying allergy in the world. (Except maybe that kid who was on Maury once who was allergic to water...)
I'm also allergic to bananas which, all things considered, is far less annoying.
God my head hurts.
Stupid everything.

Really, I work better under stress

We went to look at smoe more property today, places for the business - not places to live. The whole thing is exciting and really stressfull all at the same time.
There are soooo many things to think about, things that have to be taken into consideration, things I never really even thought about until now. (and I'm realizing how true it is when people say "location, location, location") Every time I think about how much money we're going to be spending I could just about shit.
After looking at a few places now I'm starting to get a feel for what I like and what I don't. I really can't believe the state of some of these places, which are cheeper but completely unusable (and I mean if these places were houses they would have been condemned.). While others are amazing but totally out of our price range or far too big.
The first while it going to be the hardest, we're going to have to make enough to pay off our dept, cover the rent, pay the bills and just generally stay afloat. The debt it worrying me the most at this point, but once it's all paid off I think we should be alright. This begining bit is gonna be a bit rough though.

This one's for you 'manda


Sunday, September 11, 2005


These car paint jobs are great. Cudos to whoever came up with them. (Although the first one would look a little strange with a big hairy guy sitting there.)


Ok, I just realized that I can change the font on here... without actually having to type out all the HTML codes. (forgive me, I'm new to this.) I can change the colours and the size too. (those HTML codes are a pain in the ass.) These are the things that amuse me.

On a completely unrelated note, it was Kt's bachelorette party last night. I wasn't there to see the mayhem first hand, so I hope it was awesome.

Excuse me for a second

John DiMaggio is hot. Smokin' hot. (and the URL voice he does... I'm not even gonna get in to that.) It was also his birthday a few days ago and I forgot to post it then... so I'll do it now.
Happy Birthday John! You rock dude!

I'm going to resist the urge to make a vagina joke.

(This is almost old news already, but...)Barbra Bush has apparently decided to run for president of the Heartless Bitch Club - at least that what I'm going to have to assume after her comments regarding the Katrina disaster victims.

"And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway so this (she chuckled)--this is working very well for them."

Yes, that's right Barbra, I'm sure all these people poor people who had it bad before and now have nothing left are all extatic. Those people you see sobbing in the streets are crying tears of joy that their whole lives were washed away by flood waters.
It's either that or you're completely out of touch with reality, that you're one of those people that think poor people are a burden or that they're just lazy and that you're completely heartless and talk without thinking.
Oh and Barbra, if you are infact running for Prez of the HB club - watch out for that damn Kimberly Stewart, she's quickly becoming media's favourite heartless bitch.

It's just a F---ing village

I would like to share with you the funniest news report I've read in ages. I really can't decide whether this lady is being serious or not.


Brits driving Austrians bonkers over rude village name

LONDON, (AFP) - British tourists have left the residents of one charming Austrian village effing and blinding by constantly stealing the signs for their oddly-named village.

While British visitors are finding it hilarious, the residents of F---ing are failing to see the funny side, The Sunday Telegraph newspaper reported.

Only one kind of crimimal ever stalks the sleepy 32-house village near Salzburg on the German border -- cheeky British tourists armed with a sense of humour and a screwdriver.

But the local authorities are hitting back and with the signs now set in concrete, police chief Kommandant Schmidtberger is on the lookout.

"We will not stand for the F---ing signs being removed," the officer told the broadsheet.

"It may be very amusing for you British, but F---ing is simply F---ing to us. What is this big F---ing joke? It is puerile."

Local guide Andreas Behmueller said it was only the British that had a fixation with F---ing.

"The Germans all want to see the Mozart house in Salzburg," he explained.

"Every American seems to care only about 'The Sound of Music' (the 1965 film shot around Salzburg). The occasional Japanese wants to see Hitler's birthplace in Braunau.

"But for the British, it's all about F---ing."

Guesthouse boss Augustina Lindlbauer described the village's breathtaking lakes, forests and vistas.

"Yet still there is this obsession with F---ing," she said.

"Just this morning I had to tell an English lady who stopped by that there were no F---ing postcards."

So very true

From me to you 3

This isn't really advice... it's just the best thing I've heard all day, it's so true and most frightening of all is that it came from Steve-o.

   That is the fun of blogs.... it is like your own private soapbox in the middle of the biggest park on earth, and occasionally people just shout something as they walk by

His quote also reminded me of a M*A*S*H* quote (though I don't know why):

The problem with making speaches is that you just end up convincing your friends and boring your enemies.

When in Rome...

I've been playing this game for a little while already and I'm hooked. This is one of the best games I've played in a long time. I love the look of the game overall, the characters, the diversity within the game play. It's great.
It's got lots of stealthy info gathering missions cut it with some awesome fighting. The Gladitorial battles are tons of fun. You get to hack and slash your way through everyone in sight, gain the love of the crowd so they'll throw you weapons and food, you can even pick up limbs that you sever from your ememies and use them as weapons (or pick up a freshly severed head and hold it up for the crowd).
The info gathering missions can be a serious test of patients but they're a nice break between fighting. There's lots of pressing against walls, peeking through key holes, sneeking up behind people and knocking them out to steal their clothes, and lots of listinging in on important conversations.
My only real complain with the game is that there isn't much for actual combos when you're fighting. The most you get is one maybe two, but then the moves that are available you you seem to work pretty well.

Mr. Moore to Mr. Bush

I don't know if everyone out there has seen this email yet, I don't even know if it's actually written by Michael Moore, but I agree with the basic message regardless. The way this are being handled in New Orleans is pathetic and my heart goes out to all the people who are caught up in the whole mess down there.
So here's the letter.

Friday, September 2nd, 2005

Dear Mr. Bush:

Any idea where all our helicopters are? It's Day 5 of Hurricane Katrina and thousands remain stranded in New Orleans and need to be airlifted. Where on earth could you have misplaced all our military choppers? Do you need help finding them? I once lost my car in a Sears parking lot. Man, was that a drag.

Also, any idea where all our national guard soldiers are? We could really use them right now for the type of thing they signed up to do like helping with national disasters. How come they weren't there to begin with?

Last Thursday I was in south Florida and sat outside while the eye of Hurricane Katrina passed over my head. It was only a Category 1 then but it was pretty nasty. Eleven people died and, as of today, there were still homes without power. That night the weatherman said this storm was on its way to New Orleans. That was Thursday! Did anybody tell you? I know you didn't want to interrupt your vacation and I know how you don't like to get bad news. Plus, you had fundraisers to go to and mothers of dead soldiers to ignore and smear. You sure showed her!

I especially like how, the day after the hurricane, instead of flying to Louisiana, you flew to San Diego to party with your business peeps. Don't let people criticize you for this -- after all, the hurricane was over and what the heck could you do, put your finger in the dike?

And don't listen to those who, in the coming days, will reveal how you specifically reduced the Army Corps of Engineers' budget for New Orleans this summer for the third year in a row. You just tell them that even if you hadn't cut the money to fix those levees, there weren't going to be any Army engineers to fix them anyway because you had a much more important construction job for them -- BUILDING DEMOCRACY IN IRAQ!

On Day 3, when you finally left your vacation home, I have to say I was moved by how you had your Air Force One pilot descend from the clouds as you flew over New Orleans so you could catch a quick look of the disaster. Hey, I know you couldn't stop and grab a bullhorn and stand on some rubble and act like a commander in chief. Been there done that.

There will be those who will try to politicize this tragedy and try to use it against you. Just have your people keep pointing that out. Respond to nothing. Even those pesky scientists who predicted this would happen because the water in the Gulf of Mexico is getting hotter and hotter making a storm like this inevitable. Ignore them and all their global warming Chicken Littles. There is nothing unusual about a hurricane that was so wide it would be like having one F-4 tornado that stretched from New York to Cleveland.

No, Mr. Bush, you just stay the course. It's not your fault that 30 percent of New Orleans lives in poverty or that tens of thousands had no transportation to get out of town. C'mon, they're black! I mean, it's not like this happened to Kennebunkport. Can you imagine leaving white people on their roofs for five days? Don't make me laugh! Race has nothing -- NOTHING -- to do with this!

You hang in there, Mr. Bush. Just try to find a few of our Army helicopters and send them there. Pretend the people of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast are near Tikrit.


Michael Moore

P.S. That annoying mother, Cindy Sheehan, is no longer at your ranch. She and dozens of other relatives of the Iraqi War dead are now driving across the country, stopping in many cities along the way. Maybe you can catch up with them before they get to DC on September 21st.

Oh, and if Michael Moore has an issue with me posting this he can let me know.
(And if you have an issue with it maybe you should take it up with him.)

God Damn It!

Well the damned buses aren't running, which is just peachy. How the danmed hell am I supposed to get to work!?
I don't know about everybody else but I'm getting pretty freaking sick of this shit.
If everybody could write or call city hall and bitch that would be great.


I just found out that the first season of Thundercats is out on DVD and I nearly pooped. This was by far my favorite show growing up and it still holds a special place in my heart. Actually I'm really impressed by the number of good old shows they've put out on DVD.
Although, as impressed as I am, there are still lots of old show I wish they'd put out. I'd love to have all the old Batman episodes and WKRP would be great. So many old show, so little time.

How unfortunate

I found this item in the Ikea catalogue and I laughed like a small child. You'd think that Ikea would have people to check for unfortunate names like these before they go in their catalogue.
