About Me

My photo
I'm an artist, an educator, Pastafarian and I write. I also will gamble on just about anything. And I like unusual juxtaposition, but I love my wife...and beer. This blog is observations from a funny old man who gets pissed off every once in a while. Oh, and I mispell alot.

FRIDAY #1450


Short and provocative...



Feel good legislation. 


Hitler used his school report card as his toilet paper.



And we have never condemned them for this...

Just one more reason not to do this...

I hope to one day open a Nicolas Cage themed bar where every drink order must be either shouted or whispered.



One of my very own...

I watched a video about a new type of asphalt. As seen here, watch passes right through it, so no more puddles on the road. And if it gets crack or deteriorated in any way, they send a heating truck over it and it just fills in itself.

Some of the largest craters on earth...

1000 words...

Oh, the irony...


This is much harder than it looks...


Well.....thanks Stanislav.....

Ever shouted "Hey, asshole!" in a crowd just to see who turns around?



Being old is like being on drugs. Drugs that make you forget how to drive and pee in your pants.



OOMVO...

I so hope you recognize this....

I feel like I'm parked diagonally in a parallel universe.




This is a bunker buster, but not the largest one...

St. Patrick's Day is coming up. It's the one holiday where our alcohol could possibly go undected.



What an illusion! Look carefully....
The rock is in the water.


For my friend Kent, the retired newspaper editor...

Never, ever order a complicated drink at a packed bar on St. Patrick's day.



I learned something today.
I have posted art like this many times.
It is made from various found objects...
Well, these are all made by my wife's friend, Kirkland Smith (this Kirkland is a woman).
She made this one of our mayor...the mayor my wife helped elect.

Damn!

I have not idea if this is true, but I hope it is...

Dear Jews,
Your incredibly weird and ominous Passover customs freak the rest of us out.
The World



HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!!!

We are all searching for someone whose demons play well with ours.



How do you say HELL NO in Nepalese?

I know so many bartenders and wait staff and join them in condemning this prick...

I'll leave you with a "How not to do something" video...

This recent "privacy" outcry against free service providers is a bunch of complacent boobs waking up to the fact that "free" services don't sprout out of some magic alternate dimension where work is done at zero energy cost. It's also not just Google, and Google is (ironically, given the fearmongering go around) one of the most transparent and upfront entities wrt the behavior-tracking ad-based nature of their services (as opposed to e.g. Facebook and Microsoft, which are conniving two-faced dips about it).

If you don't want your preferences indexed, either opt out of such indexing if possible or—and this really stings blind consumerists in their gelatinous egos—stop advertising your preferences through the use of free services! Pay for the work you want done. Pay a web host and a domain registrar. Index and search the web yourself! Communicate with everyone via TOR connections instead of through free email clients and Twitter and Facebook.

... or just get over yourself, and learn that nothing is ever private on the internet. If you want something to remain truly private, don't broadcast or transmit it in any fashion, internet-based or otherwise. Another way of thinking about it is that the ability of any content to remain private is inversely related to the interconnectedness and ubiquity of the medium via which it's communicated.

The picture you headed with 'And we have never condemned them for this...' is actually from a 1944 film 'None Shall Escape'. The priest in the picture is Father Warecki, played by Henry Travers. My favorite film with Mr. Travers is 'It's a Wonderful Life' where he played trainee angel, 'Clarence Odbody'.

Identifying the participants was hardly the point I was making. But thanks anyway.

Actually, I was making a point of my own, that picture is of actors in a film, and nothing to do with any actual collaboration between Catholic priests and Germans. By all means condemn them if you wish, but I felt it unfair to illustrate that with a work of fiction.

Point taken.
