iFUCK YOU APPLE! [22 Nov 2005|10:46pm]
Ya know, I thought the video iPod was one of the greatest ideas ever. I traded out my photo iPod the week the video ones came out, thinking that I'd soon be toting my collection of Monty Python & Transformers in addition to the 6000+ songs I have on there.

Boy was I fucking wrong.

The video iPod plays video superbly. Well, superbly for a 3 x 2.5 screen. It's perfect for lunch breaks and long trips. SADLY and very unsurprisingly, Apple has made it INSANELY difficult to put any video on there that has not been purchased through iTunes. It only permits two different file formats, that are not commonly used in other applications.

I've purchased over $100 in software just trying to do this. And still, at least a month later, I have NO video on my ipod. Quicktime Pro doesn't convert any non-Apple created media. Cucusoft's DVD Ripper and Video to iPod converter is full of bugs and doesn't work at all. And the software I just downloaded tonight, ImTOO DVD Ripper and Video to iPod seems to be worthless as well.

ARGH. I'm getting SO fucking tired of wasting money on this shit, wasting time on ripping/converting files just to get errors when trying to play the output. This is fucking rediculous. I'd like to know if there's ANYFUCKINGBODY out there that has been able to get video on their fucking iPod.

Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck. Fuck.

Das GetSwiped? [02 Sep 2005|12:39am]
So, Austin and I have been talking about reviving GetSwiped. Today at work while in a meeting, I sketched a new version of our classic logo, and I'd love to design a new site around it. Maybe this weekend we'll discuss where we're gonna go with this. Anyways, here's the refined image:

Fuck me?
Fuck you!
Fuck you and this whole city and everyone in it.
Fuck the panhandlers, grubbing for money, and smiling at me behind my back.
Fuck the squeegee men dirtying up the clean windshield of my car. Get a fucking job!
Fuck the Sikhs and the Pakistanis bombing down the avenues in decrepit cabs, curry steaming out their pores, stinking up my day. Terrorists in fucking training. SLOW THE FUCK DOWN!
Fuck the Chelsea boys with their waxed chests and pumped up biceps. Going down on each other in my parks and on my piers, jingling their dicks on my Channel 35.
Fuck the Korean grocers with their pyramids of overpriced fruit and their tulips and roses wrapped in plastic. Ten years in the country, still no speaky English?
Fuck the Russians in Brighton Beach. Mobster thugs sitting in cafés, sipping tea in little glasses, sugar cubes between their teeth. Wheelin' and dealin' and schemin'. Go back where you fucking came from!
Fuck the black-hatted Hasidim, strolling up and down 47th street in their dirty gabardine with their dandruff. Selling South African apartheid diamonds!
Fuck the Wall Street brokers. Self-styled masters of the universe. Michael Douglas, Gordon Gecko wannabe mother fuckers, figuring out new ways to rob hard working people blind. Send those Enron assholes to jail for FUCKING LIFE! You think Bush and Cheney didn't know about that shit? Give me a fucking break! Tyco! Worldcom!
Fuck the Puerto Ricans. 20 to a car, swelling up the welfare rolls, worst fuckin' parade in the city. And don't even get me started on the Dom-in-i-cans, 'cause they make the Puerto Ricans look good.
Fuck the Bensonhurst Italians with their pomaded hair, their nylon warm-up suits, their St. Anthony medallions, swinging their, Jason Giambi, Louisville slugger, baseball bats, trying to audition for the Sopranos.
Fuck the Upper East Side wives with their Hermes scarves and their fifty-dollar Balducci artichokes. Overfed faces getting pulled and lifted and stretched, all taut and shiny. You're not fooling anybody, sweetheart!
Fuck the uptown brothers. They never pass the ball, they don't want to play defense, they take fives steps on every lay-up to the hoop. And then they want to turn around and blame everything on the white man. Slavery ended one hundred and thirty seven years ago. Move the fuck on!
Fuck the corrupt cops with their anus violating plungers and their 41 shots, standing behind a blue wall of silence. You betray our trust!
Fuck the priests who put their hands down some innocent child's pants.
Fuck the church that protects them, delivering us into evil. And while you're at it, fuck JC! He got off easy! A day on the cross, a weekend in hell, and all the hallelujahs of the legioned angels for eternity! Try seven years in fuckin' Otisville, J!
Fuck Osama Bin Laden, Al Qaeda, and backward-ass, cave-dwelling, fundamentalist assholes everywhere. On the names of innocent thousands murdered, I pray you spend the rest of eternity with your seventy-two whores roasting in a jet-fueled fire in hell.
You towel headed camel jockeys can kiss my royal Irish ass!

4 hawaiian shirts = $28.00
1 pair aviator sunglasses = $8.99
1 vintage cigarette holder = $8.50
1 Gilligan hat = $9.99


Spending several days in Las Vegas with a group of friends, trying to stay drunk and not arrested for the entire time, experiencing your own Fear and Loathing = priceless.

In honor of the late Mr. Thompson, I intend to document my entire adventure. I'll leave 3/23, and return 3/28.

Viva Las Vegas

Oh yeah... [15 Apr 2004|12:01am]
Saw Hellboy on Monday, it SUCKED. Guillermo del Toro is a decent director, I like Mimic and Blade II which he did. The writing in this was just awful. Par special effects, good action, good idea. The writing needed to better untilize the depth of the characters. They're all very interesting, but there's little character development. My advice if you want to see it: rent it.

no, they're both vanilla [02 Apr 2004|06:02am]
Ya know, I've always kinda boycotted voting. The whole election process is a bit defunct. When democracy is allegedly about the majority making the choice, yet a candidate's win is not decided by the majority, but by a point system.

Also, I wish there were a vote of no confidence on the ballot. When you don't think any of those idiots are fit to run the country, you should have this option. In retrospect of last year's fiasco in California, I wonder if we could do the same thing with the President? When someone fucks things up so terribly, we could have their asses removed without having to wait four years to do it.

With all that said, I just may vote this year. Anything to make sure Bush is not re-elected. And I hope our new President's first order of business, is giving the Iraqi's their fucking country back. I get so tired reading everyday about another unfortunate soul that was killed by the apes over there, because Bush said "let's go to war". Seriously, we need to get the fuck out of there, and just deal with the embarrassment. Let the U.N. handle with it.

Until then, remember:

Don't give up the fight... [13 Mar 2004|10:32am]
Man, did I have an interesting evening.

For a Friday night, I figure more than anything I can count on Ryan to go a couple rounds with the beer bottle. It didn't even come to that. I get to work, (yes my corporate, extremely well paying, afford me any opportunity, item, and experience I want, with full medical, stock options, annual bonus, 4 paid weeks off a year, and the best 401k in the market, desk job) to an out of the blue email from my friend Christa, saying her and Jan and a couple of their friends are going to the riverside Gman to celebrate St. Patrick's day, and that I was invited. Christa's a pretty good friend of mine, who I'd never partied with, so I said sure. I ended up having a blast.

We were all doing shots together, sharing office dirt on people, and having a great time. So great a time, that they flagged us. I could understand being flagged had we been there all night, but it'd been like an hour and a half, and it was only 10pm. We decided this bar was for pussies, so we decided to go to the Pandemonium in Perry County. Mind you, Perry County is not where I want to spend my Friday night, but I was promised cheap drinks, and hillbilly entertainment. Christa and her boyfriend had to split because he had to get up early, so it was just me, Jan, and Jan's super cool friend, Katie.

This bar turns out to be a little more than I pictured. I invisioned a classic dive, yet found a more of an upscale dive. Large bar, 3 pool tables, and a small dance floor with a shitty Dj. Katie and I did some talkin' while Jan rubbed elbowes with her old cronies. I'd been eyeballing the pool situation, as I'm always eager to flex my billiard abilities. I put quarters up, and an hour later it's my turn at the table. So, I cut short the flirtfest between Katie and I, and told her to pay attention, and got a good luck kiss on the cheek. Six minutes was all it took. I had the game in the bag, and was working my way to a fight.

I was playing this 30 something hick fuck, who seemed to be hot shit with the locals. He and his chums chuckled at me being well dressed (I even heard "city boy" somewhere in there), but when I snuck a shot while his missed shot was still moving (the ball he intended to go in, missed, and was still rolling on the table), before his ball could block my shot, it got ugly. This guy got all in my face. "You can't do that" he yells, and I respond, "Yes I can, it's called fucking skill. The cue ball was dead on the table, it's a fair fucking shot". He's not having it, "I don't know what rules you play with where you're from, but they don't work here", I said "Fine, take your shot(on the pool table, not at me), but you better make it count". He takes his shot, misses. I take mine, and I cleared the table. I don't think I've ever seen someone so pissed off on my account. It was delicious. He tucked his tail between his legs, and scurried off.

Next up was some short guy, again thought he was hot shit, again I tought otherwise. He was so pissed about losing, the fucker wouldn't even shake my hand afterwards. So then this chick steps up to the table, and racks the balls improperly. All I could think is, "Fucking Amateures". This chick actually plays well, but not beyond me. Half way through the game, Katie comes up to me and says "You're playing really good, but do you think you could throw this one? Jan's pissed off and ready to get out of here.". So, I said sure, and threw the game. I didn't mind really, I was starting to get bored. It was nothing like my 3 hour marathon night at the Lamp Post, where I actually played good people.

We then left, and went to the good old Summerdale Diner. Had some really good conversation with Katie, Jan kinda just sat back and watched. Then we went back to Jan's house, watched Bruce Almighty, and ended up in bed together at 4 in the morning.

Mind your dirty thoughts, there was no sex happening. Still, a totally unexpected situation where I'm laying in bed with a girl I work with, and her friend that I've been flirting back and forth with all night. Also, considering the history between Jan and I, I was shocked I had even hung out with her all night, that I was at her house, let alone that I was sleeping in her bed, with nothing between us but her terribly cute friend. It was 7 am until any of us got any sleep. Then we were up at 9.

I may be hanging out with them again tonight, so we'll see where this goes...

1 Kings 18:39 [29 Feb 2004|11:44pm]
I saw "The Passion Of The Christ" tonight. In short, it is quite a remarkable movie. I wish they had left the title as just "The Passion", for the movie overflows with this.
After about five minutes, I did not mind the subtitles. After the first thirty minutes, I did not mind the brutal realism this violent story is told with. After the entire movie, I did not understand why certain people labeled it as anti-semitic.
True, the Jewish council of high priests is fiendishly evil, but that is the way it went down. Read the bible, see for yourself. They constantly plotted and bribed, influenced and deceived. If Jews hate the way their priests were portrayed in this film, then perhaps they should hate those that truly did this. But then again, Jews don't believe Jesus was anyone special, so it shouldn't really matter to them.

I don't think this is a film for 'anyone'. If you've no idea who Christ is/was, then you're just seeing some guy being beat the fuck down. It is clearly a movie made for people of faith, and or some sort of Biblical knowledge.

As I was leaving the theater, I wondered if it were a movie I'd personally buy. It's a beautiful, inspiring, commendable testament of faith, but it's not something I'd really want to see again. I mean, I would like to see it again at some point, but it wouldn't be something I'd find myself wanting to watch every few months.

Just like American History X. A positively amazing film, that I NEVER want to see again.

My hat's off to Mel on this one.
