Guy Brings Beer To His DWI Hearing...

Great article here about a fella who arrived an hour and a half late to his court hearing for a DWI case. Problem is, he showed up drinking a beer in court. Check out the article, its hilarious - short - and sweet.

Libya strike... war no. 3

War Number 3. The US economy must not be doing that good because this is the third war in 10 years... Three different skirmishes for the US (and its coalition) at the same time, that's completely insane. This is all coming from the leader of the 'free' world instituting this wacky plan because of Gadhafi and his evil 'bullying'. What, do they think we're nuts???

So, I'm hoping that we - the people - are going to be able to elect a candidate for president that will actually bring in the HOPE and CHANGE that the current fearless leader promised about 3 years ago. I've seen no changes... and in fact, have only seen the addition of bankers and lobbyists to the cabinet and leading public positions - this all when the leader promised that this would never happened before being elected. Horrible.

Florida DOT, Racial Profiling and Huge Profits...

If anyone has ever had to travel the innards of Florida and drive north, they've probably been on the Florida Turnpike. The northern stretch of the road cuts through a beautiful piece of Florida countryside, full of rolling hills and such... but there is a dark side to the drive. Every 50 miles or so, the ride is broken up by a toll. Yes, a toll to get on the Turnpike, a toll to exit, a toll in the middle of nowhere and so forth.

To get the tolls, there must be toll takers - people who are willing to stand there all day and harass travelers for money. Well, I know I've personally given thousands to these people over the years. Now I feel duped after reading this article. Seems that the FDOT has made a fortune with their relatively new program of 'detaining' people who pay with larger bills. This is all part of the system to bring in a digital currency. This is an interesting story, a good read and news video to check out when one has time.

MMA at Wal-Mart

I couldn't believe my eyes when I checked in at PeopleOfWalMart.com and found that someone with an entrepreneurial mind injected MMA training at the US's lowest price leader. Notice the kids in this picture, getting trained to beat the hell out of someone... the future of America is here.

The sound of 'Team America: World Police' is drifting into my ear, loud and clear. Check out the video for the song below - excellent laughs ahead ;)

Charlie Sheen and The Devil

I think Charlie Sheen showed a lot of courage to come out and talk about nine one 1 back a couple years ago. It didn't really seem to hurt his reputation because he went on to become the highest paid tv actor. But his recent rounds of debauchery and porn pal gals plus the briefcases of cocaine don't do his already tarnished rep any good.

However, the latest rant that Charlie went on during Alex Jones' radio show last week really spent the actor off in a loop that I can only see as him continuing off into space. Sheen is brilliant, but he's showing his nutty side now. The only thing I see is that Alex and Charlie may have been pulling a Joaquin Phoenix on everyone - I don't KNOW this but it could figure in to make Alex's show more popular with those not familiar to his truth serum.

If you think about it, Alex was at Charlie's house in CA a week before the radio rant and Alex wasn't talking about the trip before hand. Something's afoot here... and I think its pretty cool actually. Anyway, the devil's definitely sitting on Sheen's shoulder, I just hope he doesn't go completely off the deep end.

BANKSY! and Hollywood...

Banksy continues to be my hero. His sarcasm is legend. He's taken it to the next level recently in Hollywood. So, its excellent to see that he's still around doing his thing. Here's the latest story he's involved in. Apparently, there was a scuffle over his billboard that was just pulled down today - and the company who yanked it refused $10,000 for the 'art' that their advertisement had become.

Excellent. Good work, sir!

Jake Shimabukuro Plays Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody

Jake Shimabukuro is amazing. First, he's got an almost Dalai Lama-like presence. Second, he can play the hell out of the ukulele! In this video, he's playing at the TED conference. Its amazing to hear what he can do with 4 strings on what looks like a mini-guitar!

The first time I saw him play was on a YouTube clip in Central Park covering

Dalai Lama's Nephew Killed In Florida

This is sad news... very sad. The Dalai Lama's nephew was walking on the side of a Florida highway the other day was struck and killed by a car the other day. He was walking the white line with traffic. A man driving the car with his son were not charged with a crime.

The Dalai Lama nephew was walking for the Tibetan struggle for independence from China. I don't know why he was walking in that area after dark but it led to his demise. Very sad. I love the Dalai Lama and his sense of compassion and humility. Its a shame this happened to him and that his nephew was taken from him, I can only imagine that we've lost another amazing human from this world.

Lady GaGa Arrives In An Egg...

The Grammy's... an event - a spectacle - where EVERYONE seems to care about what people look like and what people wear, who they're with. Its an amazing process for someone like me who doesn't have cable. The vision of an ant farm keeps coming to me, you know, when you're a kid staring at all the ants going to and fro. Its amazing.

And so are The Grammy Awards. But this year, with everyone trying to upstage each other, one guest outdid everyone. She's Lady GaGa. She's being carried in on the shoulders of muscular models and toned ladies in some sort of weird take on an Egyptian thing. Does anyone think that there may be a hidden statement about Egypt in here? I'm guessing not - no one can get over the giant egg being carried by faux slaves with some ultra-weird rock star inside.

Only in Hollywood.

Mubarak IS the Sphinx!

I have evidence that Mubarak actually IS the sphinx...

Well, that's my evidence - manufactured of course. I'm still kind of aggravated that he hasn't stepped down as president which makes him seem more like a dictator than a 'president'. Semantics.

But then, this guy is 84. He also has billions of dollars, that he apparently made while 'being president'. Sounds shady to me. But the fact that the guy is 84 and still dies his hair black says a lot about him. Egotism? DEFINITELY YES. I guess that's a pre-requisite for being president though.

Congressman's Trouble on Craigslist

Why do these people do it? I swear its got to be the dumbest thing on Earth - to post your picture on the internet of yourself in a compromising situation. The compromising situation in this case is a MARRIED congressman (Rep. Christopher Lee is a married Republican congressman serving the 26th District of New York) who's trying to pick up some woman on Craigslist. Its just tragically funny. Now this guy's got a huge pile of trouble on his hands.

Here's the link:

I had to make a jump link on my site because Facebook wouldn't go straight through to Gawker. Its obvious that the link is being blocked, but whatever, if one knows even a nickel about html - they can make a load linked page... so that's what I did. The story is rather amusing. The reason I care is that this guy obviously doesn't have integrity. If he does this to his wife, what is he doing to our country.

There. Posted.

No Cell Phones While Driving in North Carolina

I just heard via the radio, that drivers in North Carolina may not be able to talk on the cell phone while driving any longer. The NC house has just drafted the bill and its on its way to be passed and will go into effect in December if all goes 'well'. Having lived in North Carolina, I can't help but say that this may not be a bad thing due to the extremely fast driving I've seen there.

Then again, I don't like the over-reach on the half of the gov. Its just one of those things that will pile up over time. Can you imagine what people are going to be 'allowed' to do 20 years from now? Other than walk on a sidewalk, I don't know if anything else will be legal. On a good note though, the US House of Representatives voted against an extension of the 'Patriot Act' in a recent session. No reports yet on how that's going to hold up.

Flaming Youth

I was laughing at a pic of Phil Collins that one of my friends posted on Facebook today. The photo shows Phil here with an awesome mullet on one side and some British actor from a new movie "The King's Speech". Whatever. Don't really care about it... but the picture of Phil in the photo is one of the classic one's of him from the early 1980's - back when I'm guessing he guest starred as a drug dealer in Miami Vice.

Phil started in a band in the late 1960's called Flaming Youth... the album I came across last year in a thrift store (yeah, vinyl!) was called Ark2. Classic psych album actually... lots of great grooves, harmonizing and such. I had no idea Phil was in this band actually until I heard a song that had the classic Phil voice carrying through. I flipped the cover over and there he was!

Bellagio Bandit Bum

Bellagio Bandit Bum. Why couldn't this guy just be smart about it all... I mean, he really screwed up when walking into the casino with his helmet on then demanding chips... his first mistake was committing the robbery in the first place, the second was the $25,000 chips that he stole, the third was sending pictures of the chips with "the biker bandit" from his cell phone.

Idiot. He could have had a comfortable life soaking up his score from this mob's big business but instead he acted like a true criminal - and - acted stupid.

Dumb. Oh, and his dad is a local Las Vegas judge.

Howard Stern Crushes Leno

I've stumbled across a funny bit on the Letterman show from Howard Stern's recent appearance. Great stuff actually. Every time I hear Stern I think of the Jerky Boys for SOME reason. But in this clip, Stern is classic because he completely upstages Letterman. This is great - because personally - I don't care for Letterman.

I've seen Letterman live. Its not all that and a bag of chips. And if you've ever heard someone say "the set is a lot smaller live than what you see on tv" - they're RIGHT. Its a small stage, just filmed with huge lenses. Its filmed in a high rise after all. The ground floor or whatever, but still, its not that big of a place. And, Dave isn't that funny.

Here's a link to TMZ's link to the Stern appearance. Howard makes this clip... he is the king of all media, but only in short spurts.

The SuperBowl is coming... and the commercials with it. All I care about are the commercials. I don't like the game thing really. My competitive nature left me after 10 or 11 years old. Everyone comes upon these milestones in life sooner or later, fortunately for me it came before I hit the teenage years.

However, this mass mania for football - our modern day version of old Rome's gladiator events - means HUGE business. People will be parked outside the stadium this year, being charged $200 a head, just to watch the game from OUTSIDE the stadium. "Moronic", I say to myself, but that's not my reality and I shouldn't judge.

The powers at be love this predictability in human nature. They feed on it, get fat gorging on it. Now, we have rolling power blackouts in Texas of all places, just a couple days before the game. Perfect timing for conditioning people - if you want my opinion. For most though, this is simply an inconvenience and a bit of news that the average taxpayer will just shrug their shoulders to.

When there's talk of having to get our Texans power from Mexico, my ears perk up. That doesn't make sense. But then, neither does the fact that the mass rolling blackouts that have been plaguing Texas for the past couple days haven't ONCE touched the 'Colosseum' where the two teams will be meeting on Sunday. The multi-billion dollar stadium has experienced no power outages at all.

But the hospitals have.
This is where our priorities have shifted (or sunk in the mud).
This is not good.

In Come The Camels!

The time has come for the camels to show up in Egypt. I've always found camels interesting. There's so much a camel can do, but I never thought wrestling through crowds and carrying a rider through a riot was one of them. There's a lot going on in the Middle East. The people up top know what's going on... they're letting this act of the play go on as long as it takes I guess... as long as it takes to escalate things to the next level.

Prophets across time seemed to think that the final days would come to pass with trouble in the Middle East. We've always seen problems there but this is bigger than those relative skirmishes. Apparently, there are similar protests all over the Middle East now. I don't know how this will all get settled but I bet there's going to be more violence before calm comes. Its a violent, more archaic society over there, all we can do is have hope.

3 Branches of Government by Chuckie Schumer

This is great. A sitting Senator in the United States senate apparently doesn't know what the 3 branches of government are. Now one would argue that he just made a mistake, but he clarified the branches he was talking about and then continued to try to prove his point. My question is, does he really think that the House, Senate and the President are the three branches of government or is he just trying to see how far he can get with misinformation? I'm thinking he's no idiot - so I'm going with my second guess.

And... I think if the people up top think they can rewrite history, they would. That's pretty apparent. Evidence of this can already be seen in certain history books claiming that Bush the Second was a 'great' president. I don't know who's giving him props - or why - but clearly if one looks through the videos online of him tripping over his own tongue and often acting like the village idiot, they would quickly think otherwise.

Anyway, here's the video everybody's been posting recently with Schumer's ridiculous statement. Watch in amazement.

It All Started in Egypt...

Egypt has the oldest buildings. Egypt led the way back in the day with slavery (I guess) and having a well defined caste society. Well, since society is currently in a mess, why shouldn't Egypt lead the world into a global revolution against a sitting government?

And why not start the looting (in disgust for the current political regime) by ripping the heads off mummies and rioting? Sounds like this makes perfect sense in our less than perfect world. Humans never cease to amaze and continue to prove that they, indeed, are animals. Human but animal at the same time.

Check out this article.

Kardashians Can't Help Piers Morgan

As I was reading through news blogs and such this morning, I come across this article talking about how Piers Morgan's new talk show is circling the drain. Who knows how much the network is paying that guy. A sign that a show is hurting though is when you bring in a couple scantily clad Kardashians to resurrect your ratings. Especially when the sisters are talking about their sex tapes.

As far as the demographics go, I can't really see the target group for listening to these bimbos' interview. These are just rich girls who have nothing better to do than have cameras follow them around for no reason... or talk about the way they look... or complain about their problems. Why even look into watching this hard hitting 'interview' for more than a minute? Once you've see them for 10 seconds, you've pretty much seen it all.

1 million bucks for an Indiana superintendent

We're all under the impression that things are bad out there - that the economy is not in a good way. All the while, the government continues to grow larger because taxes are always in good supply. Well, now a school district in Indiana is paying some hog over a million dollars in retirement funds. This is completely ridiculous. I wonder if the state can 'go back' on their deal.

Here's more of the story at this link...

America : What happens at IHOP, Didn't Stay at IHOP

What's happening to America? Click on the pic to the left to check out the video! I mean, humans act out in a variety of ways typically. We're all animals after all, that goes for EVERY human on this planet. Some humans are more evolved than others. For some reason, I can't help enjoying watching videos like this - which are a huge disappointment actually.

We drive through the Orangeburg, SC area a couple times every year... though I can't say that I've ever seen anything like this happening there, I have seen a couple guys walking around with canes - like the guy in this video who's seen swinging said cane wildly proclaiming he's gonna "beat yo mutha fuckin' ass". If this behavior is the type that sets America apart from all other countries, we'd be at the bottom of the pile. A real bummer if you ask me.

State of the Union Speech

Sounds like the State of the Union speech was the opening horn to start the 2012 US Presidential race. Mentioning things in the speech such as 'America still has the largest economy in the world' and other such comments really make things sound better than they are... and oh well, I guess its good to look at things on the bright side. At least he's being positive for America.

However, bowing to foreign leaders and last week allowing a Chinese pianist to play a patriotic Chinese tune at the White House; these aren't such positive things. In fact, I think the pianist thing is really a bad flub. Either that was an oversight on the part of White House staff or a carefully planned and allowed event.

This is what the LA Times reports:
"The song was composed for the film "Battle on Shangganling Mountain" ((an anti-American, Korean War film)). The lyrics, which weren't sung in the piano rendition at the White House, includes the verse: "When the friends come, fine drink is offered. But if the wolves come, what greets them are the hunting rifles."

Why is a song like 'My Motherland' allowed to play at such events... maybe because the Chinese are now in financial control of the world? Maybe???

The BODY scan with Jesse Ventura

So, this morning has the report out that Jesse Ventura is now suing the TSA. Good for him. This is just on the heels of another guy who sued the TSA and took his case to court. That case was about the guy in question not giving his name to TSA authorities... his attorney's argument was simple, that the defendant's name was on the boarding pass.

Jesse Ventura is in a different legal battle. He has a titanium hip apparently, no doubt from years of wrestling, not from his stint as governor. But his problem is actually capitalizing on an entire series of intrusive searches on all air travelers. Its been difficult up to this point to present some sort of argument to the invasive searches and protest to walking through body scanners that are so powerful that they can actually see down to the bones in your fingers.

Click on Jesse's image above, I've linked to a news story about the governor hot off the presses this morning. Good stuff.

Steelers vs. Packers...

Should be a good game coming up in a couple weeks. Tried to watch part of the Steelers game last night but didn't get too far along until I felt the need to work more to better myself by building more listings. I'll leave the football to the real football fans. Here's the link capping up the games from yesterday.

Ron Paul apparently takes 2nd in New Hampshire's straw poll for the 2012 race. Its gonna be a fun year of campaigning if Paul can make it. I don't know how a guy in his late 70's is able to garner enough energy to keep going like he does. The guy is my hero. Seriously.

Here's a link to the article:

Click the photo to grab your own Ron Paul for President 2012 Tshirt!

Poor Olbermann...

Keith Olbermann is going to be a little less rich in a couple years if he doesn't do some wrangling in the meantime. He's wandered back and forth and then back and forth again with his stances on certain subjects that I pay attention to, so his leaving is inconsequential to me. I see though that his severance package will pay him his salary of $7 million a year to do absolutely nothing... this also happened to Jesse Ventura after he left his governor's position in MN. Now Ventura has his show Conspiracy Theory, will the same happen to Olbermann - only on a liberal level?

Here's the link to an article by TMZ about Olbermann wanting MORE money. I don't understand why some people can't just leave well-enough alone and enjoy their success. Same thing just happened to Regis I think too - the guy was getting paid $18-20 million a year, that too wasn't enough. What's wrong with these people??? If you could weigh their collective egos, I wonder if they'd break a scale?

Tuition paid in ONE DOLLAR bills...

This guy is crafty. He paid his entire tuition for a semester of school in ONE DOLLAR BILLS! The report says the bag he used weighed about 30 pounds when it was finally full of ones. Apparently, he's trying to make a point about the ridiculous cost of the ever-rising student tuition. He's doing a good job... everyone should see this.

here's the link:

Holyfield still fighting?

I heard a local radio spot today advertising some big entertainment night in Orlando. Apparently, Evander Holyfield will be fighting. This is amazing... it seems like a decade ago when he got his ear bit off by Mike Tyson, and even back then Holyfield was an old draw.

3rd grader "hit it hard a lot"

Speaking after getting caught smoking pot in his elementary school's bathroom, the 3rd grader says this when asked how many times he's smoked pot, "hit it hard a lot". So, he hits it hard a lot... someone's parents are going to have to answer some questions I'm afraid. And those parents are definitely not hitting the kid enough... the generation of parents today were the last one to be spanked I think. Therein lies the problem...

Here's the story:

biggest yacht in the world...

The biggest yacht in the world is in the works now - while the rest of the world is in a depression. So, apparently this giant yacht, the world's most expensive and large, is being designed and will soon become a reality... only for $1 billion.

Good Lord, what has this world come to? It will be home to 16 people and 70 servants... or 70 wait staff... whichever politically correct term you'd like to use.

Surfing 5 Miles...

Surfing in Alaska is cold. It wouldn't be quite as cold if one could ride a stand up paddle board like the guys in this article... Looks amazing. I'd love to do this at some point in the future - maybe in a warmer climate though. However, if it had to be in Alaska, I'd do it.

We Can Be Better

There was a speech last night apparently. Our leader told us all we need to play it cool, to chill out and 'be better'. We can be better, but only if we have jobs and ways to manufacture things, etc... its tough for some Americans right now. There's talk on the radio about a depression in the housing market. Uh, yeah, that's been going on for a while now. If you're in Florida, you'd have guessed the real estate market has been in the crapper for about 2 years now. But 'they' also say we're "coming out of it". Sure.

Anyway, here's a link to the speech from last night. I don't really put myself on either side of the political fence... I like to sit in the middle and watch the people argue back and forth.

Chris Matthews doesn't like Mark Levin or Michael Savage

Apparently, Chris Matthews doesn't like Mark Levin or Michael Savage. I think its because those guys are getting more traction out of their aggravated antics than the wee-man Matthews. Either way, they're all out using the latest tragedy to spew their own brand of hate which of course is focused solely to get ratings. Ridiculous.

And after all that's said, there's another report now that sales of handguns have gone through the roof in AZ. Here's the article:

Independent? Who cares???

Who cares if this guy's a democrat, republican or independent? Of course he's independent, he's NUTS! Why is there such a big media storm about this guy. The coverage should all be focused on the people who this guy's misdeeds are affecting and how to help the families along, not whether this guy was an independent, a satanist or abortionist. Who cares?

My Time-Lapse Drawing Video...

Here's a quick video of a time lapse version video I taped while drawing one day. Back in the day, I used to have a tv show and would do all sorts of cool time-lapse type video work. It was a lot of fun. Figured that this would be a fun project to get my video skills back in gear.

Tom DeLay will serve 3 years - IN JAIL

AMAZING giant cave in VietNam / National Geo!

This is truly amazing.
Check out these massive caves in VietNam! They're so huge that apparently a 40 story building could fit in some, others have actual jungles growing inside. A river that has carved one entrance is often nearly dry but during the wet season the water level can reach 300 feet!

This all has been documented by National Geographic.
Here's the link!

Jared Loughner - Arizona shooter...

Idiot. Weirdo. Nut-job.
Who knows... but this guy has definitely made the top of the news and for his efforts we'll give him three meals a day and a place to sleep for the rest of his life... and medical care and other things. Problem is, all the talking heads out there are using this idiot's actions as a political football. Even though the article says this guy is an atheist, a communist and pro-abortion advocate. The pundits are still trying to picture this nut as a constitutionalist - or conservative. Weird.

Also, isn't it interesting how the news media is giving this guy 3 names, including his middle name - not just his first and last? This whole thing stinks of conspiracy... but we dare not mention it.

Oh well... here's the link to the Washington Post's article:

Internet ID

Ready for your new internet ID?
This is it, the proposal from the president it appears will create an identifiable eco-system on the internet. Ahhh yes, I can remember a time when the internet was like the wild west. Now we're headed the way of cattle I'm afraid... no more free range to roam. We'll be kept in an 'eco-system' now. It had to happen at some point.

here's the article:


Well, its Sunday a.k.a. the sabbath. One of my friends on Facebook linked to this awesome video from 1970 from Black Sabbath. Great band, the first to give us an early glimpse into heavy metal. Here's a video from them on YouTube, check it out.

New Year...

Happy New Year is in effect. 2011 has come in with a bang, literally. All the neighbors were firing muskets and lighting off mortars apparently. Good to have neighbors like this. Haven't updated this blog in forever, but intend to now this year. I've got lots to list and jaw about. New designs and such.

Here's something I'm listing on my eBay store, something for the John Lennon fans out there...

Anyway, its not really an award winning artistic effort, but its great for its message - as mystical as it is. THIS IS NOT HERE. Indeed. More interesting designs to come. If you want to buy this shirt in my eBay store, you can find it here:


That's about it for now.
