There is an Italian movie called "E mor con un felafel in mano" which means "he died with a felafel in his hand". That's one of the greatest titles I have ever heard. I discovered this when I looked up the actor Noah Taylor. He was the computer geek in Tomb Raider. He was also Hitler in the tv movie "Max". John Cusack was...

Hey, everybody, lookit me! I'm all political and shit!

I've decided to do a political post. Why? Because I can. Or perhaps it's because that lone Guinness went to my head and cost me $6 at the same time. Either way, there was some talk after that last election down south (what was that, a year ago?) that made me wonder. I...

Living free day. That's what today is for me.

This morning I used my free coffee card to get a peppermint latte (it was gross). I've been to that shop so regularly that the people who work there automatically start pouring my coffee as soon as they see me.

At lunchtime I used my free burrito card to get a free burrito. Special...

You know, fenral managed to get himself tickets for that game, you might wanna pester him on the board.

xixi:

peppermint lattes are gross. the gingerbread is SO good though, only if you like gingerbread. if you like gingerbread, i highly recommend a gingerbread latte. also, the world's largest gingerbread man is being displayed at the hyatt hotel on burrard street.

if you like gingerbread, that is. and men.

Canadian Man Apologizes to Mexico and Brazil

Sorry. For all those who like to have Sapporo Beer in Mexico or Brazil, I'm terribly sorry. Starting last month, shipments from Japan to your countries stopped and shipments from Canada started. The Sapporo Beer that you can drink in your fine nations was brewed not in Sapporo, but Guelph. It's not as good, is it...

I once had a Thai in my beer. Tasted kinda fruity. She was cute though.

I just bought a new celtic knot font and I went a little crazy. Can you blame me? I love celtic knot designs. They're tricky to do... unless you have this font!

I spent as much time as possible this weekend recording music. It wasn't as much time as I had hoped, but I guess I have to look at it like something is more than nothing.

There are two songs in particular that I'm working on and neither of them were written by me. That's a good thing. With the possible exception of...

"so... would you say that you're on SG... right now?"

I just spat water all over my desk from laughing.

Thank you.

Cho Chang. I always liked her as Harry's love interest, but in the movie when she opens her mouth and speaks, I practically wet myself.

I feel shame.

i'm generally a stickler for accuracy as well, but i'm in the same boat as you. i think brandon bird's a genius because he actually thought that shit up.

I'll take a stab at the objectification question in your journal instead of the boards, because the boards are pissing me off again and I do not wish to look at them. So, in the event that you were hoping to spark a meaningful discussion there rather than get a straightforward answer here, uh, sorry?

The idea that objectification in porn is bad is founded on the premise that porn treats women (and men, frankly, but the debate centers more on the women's role because porn is mostly created and purchased by men, so ostensibly reflects what they want. This was more true when the idea started than it is now, but it's still true enough for present purposes) as sexual objects who are more or less collections of body parts and not real people. T&A, a bunch of holes and maybe a pretty face -- not a person or a personality. If a woman is not conventionally pretty, or if she ages or loses her looks for whatever other reason, then she loses her value in this scheme.

So that's the hugely oversimplified summary of Why Objectification Is Bad. My personal opinion is that there's a lot of truth to the idea, but the truth has less to do with porn and a lot more to do with people's stupid ideas.

You can see it on this site, too -- people make this artificial distinction between "vapid" mainstream silicone-and-bleach types and SGs, which always bugs me because it implies something about the models rather than the people who pay them to create those images. You don't know what the models are like, guys. You're projecting stereotypes. Argh, that bugs me.

You should be afraid of banana spiders. They keels people! Keels 'em dedd!

We had a Products Liability case last week where this guy got bitten by a banana spider lurking in a crate of bananas at the grocery store. He died and his family sued the store. Apparently these spiders are known for being exceptionally aggressive, exceptionally large (six inches across!), and exceptionally venomous.

On the other hand, being bitten by Richard Simmons could very well still be worse, so hey.

i love your ducks looking at themselves pictures.

This morning, I awoke less than fresh from strange, haunting dreams of me plugging toilets and getting dirty water all over the place. I can't remember anything else. I'm not sure if I don't want to because it was obviously a bad dream, or if I want to because at least something else would be less embarassing than a bad dream about...
