Really, organized religion needs to work on it’s image. The wacko right wing evangelicals add there own flavor to things but this guy needs a makeover. You know having the image of  Satan handing down the message of Jesus on an English street just doesn’t cut it for most of us sane folk.

 

 

Stanley Kubrik – A CLOCKWORK ORANGE May 12, 2007

PART ONE

A great analysis and commentary by Rob Ager. If you have seen A Clockwork Orange, and I recommend that you do.A lot of the symbolism doesn’t reveal itself in the first screening since you tend to be taken aback by the shocking violence. Kubrik was ahead of his time, from Dr. Stranglove to the Shining, 2001 A Space Odessey, Full Metal Jacket and Eyes Wide shut, these were films that changed how we looked at society and our own existance and Rob Ager reveals a lot of the symbolism that interconnects these films. I am not sure about the connections between Kubrik and his conspiracy theories and the Illuminati but they appear to be a common thread in his films….maybe Kubrik was messing with us.

Part two of the review is below. I recommend it.

Johnny C Billboard

Johnny Cash is one of my favorites artists of all time. He was the epitome of creativity and devotion to his craft. He was light years ahead of his time.

The real story behind this photo is here, taken at San Quentin prison. The image ran as an ad fronted by Johnny Cash’s manager in Billboard Magazine as a protest to the current state of the country music industry.

Another brilliant WTF! Sheryl Crow will save the planet – one square at a time! April 23, 2007

Sheryl Crow has been smokin the Al Gore spliff and she has been inhaling. She had an idea as she claims that will help the vast deforestation of the planet. When you visit the washroom, toilet, comode, bathroom, restroom, john, lavatory, ladies, gents, powder room, water closet, public convenience, latrine, or the privy you restarin yourself and use only one square or piece of toilet paper. Her blog post can be seen here.

sc

To quote: “Although my ideas are in the earliest stages of development, they are, in my mind, worth investigating. One of my favorites is in the area of forest conservation which we heavily rely on for oxygen. I propose a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting. Now, I don’t want to rob any law-abiding American of his or her God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where 2 to 3 could be required. When presenting this idea to my younger brother, who’s judgment I trust implicitly, he proposed taking it one step further. I believe his quote was, “how bout just washing the one square out.”

Well, I’m not sure if this has been thought of before but I am sure it’s more effective way to save the forest than using you hand, (which I think has been banned in most countries). By the way I do think it is an American god given right to use as much bloody toilet paper as they see fit. I am not an American so maybe someone can weigh in on this for me.

Virgina Tech Tragedy Spawns Cyber Experts April 21, 2007

I have a problem, well really a bitch, a gripe, complaint or whatever you want to call it with the reaction comments and opinions of many people (blogs included) in the cyberworld. Specifically my complaint is with all of those who have deputized themselves as police officers, detectives, reporters, journalists, crime scene experts, grief counselors, psychiatrists, psychologists, sociologists, regarding the Virginia Tech tragedy. I will also express my opinion on the reckless media outlets (who will remain nameless) who are so driven to make a buck that they will sensationalize, hypothesize and rationalize their broadcasts and writings from sun up till sun down over this tragedy. They will also do this off the backs of the victims families with total disregard for their privacy, grief and suffering they must be feeling.
I would expect the expert analysis of this event to be left to just those people, the experts, who will be able to piece together the unfortunate string of actions that lead to the horrific outcome. There are many things that can be learned from this event but it is not to be self taught. What everyone has to realize is that the Internet is a great equalizer. The thoughts and opinions of individuals are presented in the same flat manner as those of the experts. A search of this subject delivers just as many blogs posts as it does news articles.

There seems to be this drive to be part of the collective, to add to and be caught up in the story as it unfolds since this is what technology can do for us, from cell phone videos to profiles on MySpace. There is a time to switch it off and step back and try to re-connect with reality and not get caught up in this flood of snapshots of information that is to overwhelming to piece together. Leave this to the journalist whose job it is to do exactly that piece the facts together, unfortunately there seems to be many lessons for the “establishment” news community to learn, and there are on a few who are willing to step back themselves and questions what they are doing.

As you can see below I have posted a tribute to the Virginia Tech tragedy and have done it only once. As a note of remembrance it includes images from students who were there and that were affected by it, thats all.

Google offers High Speed Broadband – via the toilet? April 1, 2007

Posted by isthatwacked in Editorial.

All of those free Google Services and now the ultimate, with TiSP; Google’s new Toilet WiFi service.

Why should I switch to Google TiSP?

  • It’s fast. In our testing, TiSP delivers a 10x higher flow rate than basic DSL.
  • It’s FREE. No more paying hundreds of dollars a year for Internet service that doesn’t even necessarily extend to your bathroom!
  • It’s good for you. Your FREE TiSP service includes a Google Toolbar-based analysis of your dietary habits and genetic predispositions, along with recommendations for healthier living.

You can upgrade to the “Royal Flush Service” for only $24.95/mo.

“Actual speeds will vary, depending on network traffic and sewer line conditions. Users with low-flow toilets may simultaneously experience a saving-the-environment glow and slower-data-speed blues”

April 1 is well known for various pranks. Good one by Google!
