Where's it from? The Interthingy
OK,..you wouldn't know it to look at me, (I'm a CASUAL guy),..but I take GREAT care in the cologne/razors/soap/shampoo etc... that I buy.
Luckily for me, most of the stuff that I like
is also very affordable, but my colognes,.. *sigh* not the case. I liked
Gray Flannel as my #1 (expensive) but my friend Jeff turned me on to Joop, and I've
used it as my primary ever since.
Now I know what you're thinking (the same thing I did)
is probably a "knock-off", or this is something that's been refilled, or
people have had their hands/testicles/etc.. all over the bottle right? Nope, these
are unopened (in most cases) test units that just never got opened and
put on the shelves. So if you like the expensive colognes, and want 50%
off...E-bay is the way to go!
Them Republicans is a hoot!
Posted by Wayne on Oct 10, 2007 at 2:30 PM | Where's it from? (Multi campaign sources like youtube)
In the interest of fair play,..here is my
quick summary of the Republican Candidates (based on watching all the
Brownback - Uh,.."Brown Back" Republicans hate brown people, they're not
going to want to hear "brown" all the time when referring to the president. Had
a hard time "talking off the cue card". Questions that were worded slightly
different than what he was expecting threw him,..didn't seem that bright..
(kept touching his OWN belly when talking about embryos.....am I the only one
who thinks that's really strange!?)
Mike Huckabee - I can't see "President Huckabee" it's amazing, I think this guys last name would keep him from being president even if he was the best guy for the job. Seemed like he was very intelligent, and actually understood the subject matter, plus the quote "Spending money like John Edwards at a beauty shop" was priceless. Amazed that he didn't get all "Preachy, considering he's a Baptist minister.
Duncan Hunter - Sandy Duncan is very afraid of this guy. He didn't really have a message so much as a "I was in the military was anyone else in the military? no? I SHOULD BE PRESIDENT THEN!" This guy is OBVIOUSLY a puppet candidate, he's not running to be president, he's running for his backers. I did like his shoot first ask questions later policy on immigration though.
John McCain - Blew up his own aircraft carrier while he was on deck, that alone makes me wonder about the man. Doesn't really have a good "I can speak on my own" mentality...Can't imagine him in front of world leaders.
Ron Paul - I thought this guy was a huge cross dressing black guy...how things have changed. He seems like he has his stuff together, one of the only politicians I've seen yet to say "Yes if you make a bad decision as president, change it immediately don't "Stay the course". All in all pretty smart, but gets a little "stuttery" when he talks, this is another of those "shouldn't matter" things that seems to kill political candidates. Actually had the balls to say "Do you know WHY 9/11 happened? It's because we've been bombing these people for years." Preach on!
Mitt Romney - I like to say "Mitt Romney,..I'd like to have a friend with the name "Mitt" it's fun. Got asked question A. and gave answer B. I don't think he understands how debates are supposed to work. This guy is a "I'm SUPER REPUBLICAN!!" guy, doesn't care if an idea is good or bad, as long as it's "conservative" even more so that the normal republican candidates,. right up to the edge of danger..
Tom Tancredo - Tancredo is neat-o I wish he debated in a tuxedo, what's his credo? He likes likes to huff the dust of Cheetos. (I know that's not how it's pronounced, screw you!) Another puppet candidate, I could actually see the strings moving as he moved around on stage. "Republican are good no matter what bad men say."
Fred Thompson - Looks like a really pissed off "Frasier" maybe because he was on TV and all. But seriously, and actor running for president,..what kind of a joke is that.
Tommy Thompson - Used to be in charge of Health and Human Services, so at least he knows a bit about the other side of politics, Looks like a Feringi though.
Jim Gilmore - Anyone from Pink Floyd is ok in my book. Seemed to be another "with it" kinda guy, but didn't really have a realistic view for politics in the middle east.
Pain in the form of bad Sci-Fi
Posted by Wayne on Aug 10, 2007 at 10:30 PM | Where's it from? (Sci-Fi Channel)
I just finished watching the premier of Flash Gordon on Sci-Fi.
Usually The Sci-Fi Channel spends time and money to produce a new series, and you can tell early on if it's going to be great, ok, or just crap. With their bigger projects they usually get talented actors and writers to make up for any other deficits within the project (basically make it good enough to weather it's own problems). Apparently Sci-Fi has decided to see what happens if they stopped using any type of talented staff whatsoever. Flash Gordon was one of the worst programs (sci-fi or not) that I've ever seen. The casting director alone deserves to be repeatedly raped by hippos and velociraptors. The real shame it that Flash Gordon is such an easy franchise to do right. Maybe someone thought it was too easy, perhaps someone though "I'll do it different!!" ..well different it was!. Flash wasn't flashy, Dale wasn't sexy, Zarkov isn't a genius, and Ming wasn't scary (Eric Johnson should stick to being one of the worlds greatest guitar players.. (same guy right?) The show relied on crappy sci-fi 101 plot fillers (Dad kidnapped, Secret Alien Artifact, Wormholes for travel,) It was like a bad cross of Sliders and Smallville, if you removed all the acting, action, plot, and talent.
Normally the shows produced for the sci-fi channel are hit and miss, some are amazing and some,...well *miss*, but even the ones that missed in the past have had their merit (maybe they're too campy, or the dialogue is sappy, but all in all they don't make your eyes bleed). Starting with Painkiller Jane, and now Flash Gordon, that modis operandi has been abandoned, The Sci-Fi channel is just cranking out (subcontracting maybe?) shows that have a GREAT 30 second sell, and then fail 100% to deliver. I mourn the days of Firefly, BSG, Farscape, SG1, The Dresden Files etc.. At least it was the BBC and not Sci-Fi that brought back Dr.WHO. I can't imagine how badly they would have ruined it (well no worse than FOX's attempt I'm sure) but still...
I'm sure I'll hate the treatment that they'll no doubt give Buck Rodgers, Logan's Run, and any other retro sci-fi classics they can dig up to rape the naked corpses of. All in all the porno movie "Flesh Gordon" was a better sci-fi movie and stayed truer to the original "Flash Gordon Vision"

My friend Jason said that my scrollbar type blog sucked,..and, and, then he beat me up and rubbed my nose in code...but after giving it some thought/play I realized that he was right, and now I can FINALLY start building the rest of the page. This layout is also WAY more PDA friendly (unless you want to leave comments) I may add the miniscroll window as part of the archives features once there actually are archives,..but really, you already have a scrollbar so...use it.
Dem dere dem debates yah?
Posted by Wayne on Aug 1, 2007 at 1:01 PM | Where's it from? (just me)
I finally got around to watching the Democratic Debate with "new amazing edgy, power to the people youtube extreeemeness!!"
It was (of course) obvious how cherry picked the questions were. Questions like "I'm a lesbian, here is my girlfriend, would you let *US* get married?!" Whereas questions like. "In polls over 70% of the American people said they would support laws that prohibit the president, senate officials, or congressmen from being elected or staying in office if they have a criminal record, why is it that no one has championed such a bill?" got ditched before anyone could even think about putting them on the air...
Here's my 30 second rundown of the candidates thus far:
Hillary Clinton - Bible thumpers have that whole "Obey your man or get the back of the hand" thing. Man, God, Jesus, etc.. So it's impossible for a woman to win in the US yet, after we have 10 or so elections where women who are actually qualified run, yeah maybe then. ("She was a president’s wife, and although we’ve never met, one time I saw her get angry, something I’ll never forget, maybe it’s only a dream, and I don’t want to be mean, but I’d be willing to bet...She’s a moaner, A mo-oh-owner, she’s a mo-oh-oh-oh-owner, don’t ask me how I know, but from her head down to her toes,..she’s a moaner." )- Moaner - The Psychodots
Barack Obama - See above sub woman w/black (or blackish) sub back of hand w/whip or bus. (gotta love fundies,.. Red States Unite!!,..to uh... To Divide!)
Dennis Kucinich - I liked him and his message, but he has no eyebrows, was a little too nervous/excited, and seems frail. He seems to be in politics to try to make a change for the better,...Could possibly be the single biggest voice for positive change, but he looks too weird. Gives me a Martin Short vibe, and normally that alone would make me want to kill him. Probably the best guy for all us internet types. Majority of America will deny votes on his freaky looks and his "hyper flusterability" alone.
Joe Biden - This guy gives me the Religious Zealot creeps, I practically got my wallet out and reached for the phone just looking at him so I'm guessing most of America will like him. Luckily he reminds me of Locke's Dad on LOST, so maybe people will dislike him based on their TV viewing subconscious.
My guess is this is the kind of guy who likes to spend a *LOT* of time with the altar boys.
Bill Richardson - Seemed to be a smart and "with it" guy, a lot of good positions. Definitely qualified and experienced in both grassroots and top level governmental work. Quick wit/mind. REALLY reminds me Lou Costello (or for you modern kids) Curt Jones from MAD TV, so the 10 people that actually watch MAD TV may like him. Unfortunately, it looks like he could be/could get fat though, America won't want a fat president, so he can't win.
Mike Gravel - Got angry at people's lack of response to important issues,..made note of the fact most of the people on stage were in the back pocket of "big companies" based on where their campaign contributions come from. Lifelong career of political service. Told the truth, appeared "Crotchety" and didn't smile. Can't win a presidential election by telling the truth and not smiling. Makes me think of a cross between Frank Black and an old white haired Stephen King. I imagine him puttering around his house, yelling at the sofa for not being scary enough to write a book about.
John Edwards - I never watched his show where he talks to dead people. I don't know if that helps you out in being president or not, but I do know that this guy was biting back his desire to yell "Praise Jesus!" and sing a little song. They did at one point ask the "Gimmie " question So that all the candidates could say "I'm religious (so you can vote for me) but I wouldn't let my religion affect my decisions as president." (so smart people can vote for me too). The only problem is, smart people know you're full of shit when you say that. He also reminds people of Jack Ritter, and Jack Ritter was gay so....even less red state votes for him.
Chris Dodd - Man,..this guy just screamed "No one could be worse than Bush eh?,..Well HERE *I* AM!" Snake oil oozed from this guy, definitely an old school Washington "business as usual" guy looking to make a buck. But mainly he reminds me of Martin Landau, and Martin Landau scares the fuck out of me! I think he scares the fuck out of most people, so that will work against him. I mean, look at that picture, you instantly imagine that he's in Nazi Regalia don't you,..it's ok admit it.
My really long rant on "The energy crisis"
Posted by Wayne on July 31, 2007 at 10:21 PM | Where's it from? (just me)
Link broke? try (local text only)
digging through some of my bookmarks on electric cars, oil companies
(and the Washington political elite who get billions in kickbacks)
solar systems and wind turbine systems. And as I listened to the TV in
the background I heard several of the "Feel good" commercials that
Shell, BP and other big oil companies are putting on pushing biofuels
as the *best* solutions.
Patsy Hilton less rich. How can she buy Atlas Shrugged now?
Posted by Wayne on July 30, 2007 at 06:21 PM | Where's it from? news.com.au
Link broke? try (local text only)
William Barron Hilton (the man who controls the destiny of the Hilton Fortune) has said he will NOT be leaving the fortune to the Hilton family. No doubt this an attempt to distance the prestige of the Hilton name from Patsy Hiltons coked up whoring binges, but it it too little too late? Barron said the latest 2+ Billion Dollars earned in selling off some of the Hilton properties will now be donated to charitable endeavors, but it really makes you wonder,..with her various outside sources supplying her over 4 Million dollars a year for just "being a stupid spoiled media whore" will it really put a dent in her escapades? Tabloids would pay her a million dollars for a peek at her "My Little Pony" diary. "
Luckily I got to be the bearer of this good news at dinner with friends tonight and I was welcomed like a hero, cheers went up, and great joy did abound.
We also got to talking and noticed that Patsy is only seen carrying copies of War and Peace, The Bible, The Art of War, The Power of Now, The Alchemist etc...and never just a normal book or magazine nowadays. Since she's decided to stop "acting like she's unintelligent" she's given up any but the most intellectual of reading material. I find it even more amazing that no matter how casual a day she's having, when Patsy carries books they always wind up right side up, with the titles facing out. Almost like she's just carrying them so people will SEE them.... and then they'll think she's actually reading them......like,...like it's STAGED!? No that can't be it, it *must* be coincidence.
In the time she's been photographed with those books alone I doubt there would physically be time for her to read through them no matter how big the print. I supposed she could have made it through all of them considering that there's only about 50 Pictures between all 4 books and I'm guessing she skips the little squiggly line parts.
Should have other parts of the website, and new links ready later this week (getting an unusually large # of hits on my web-album for some reason....who knew.)
