Poor Poor Michael

Aww... Poor Michael



Michael... I accept you and all your cow-simulating self. If I
didn't, I would have had you executed long ago like Kevin.

You don't remember Kevin, because Kevin didn't get to stick around
long enough to meet you. I blame him, as he pissed me off, and I had
to... dispose of his annoyance.

You aren't to that level. So I am not forced to deal with you as I
dealt with Kevin.

Poor, poor Kevin.

Otherwise, I agree. We do need to do something. Something to shake
things up... unfortunately half of us do not drive, and the other half
do not want to drive...

and the other half have jobs that keep us from doing something.

So my weekends are free sometimes... we need to actually try...
planning something.

I know how we are all against the planning of things... but for the
sake of actually seeing each other, we may need to consider it.

Lastly, for the sake of keeping Michael from crying... I would never
actually translate what I say on the board about you to real life. Of
all the Collins, you are now the one with the most potential for...
well... something other than waking up in a pile of Post-It notes and
dog hair.

if you have yet to catch it on adult swim, i suggest that all of you turn to channel 42, at 12am and watch the Venture Bros. I haven't laughed out loud to a cartoon in a very long time. My ribs are still sore from last nights episode, and it wasn't their best.
i'm at pierce, researching for my final essay. wee. i am having so much fun.
i just ate a bacon sammich, and i think im going to be sick. not sure if the sammich was the cause, but if i die-avenge my death, will you brothers?
i need a job, if any of you know of any places thats are hiring asians-like chinese restaurants, convience stores, gardening positions or laundry and dry cleaning businesses-please let me know. i would love to follow a sterotype.
anywho-back to this paper, than will go to class, bitch about stuff and than go home and eat turkey. oh snap-i have a take home test due tomorrow...well i guess i'll do that after eating left over turkey. anywho-
hope your day is filled with rapists and child molestors, and you get hit by a speeding automobile (hopefully, while your out and about) and be paralyzed from the waist down and will than be unable to advance your seed. LONG LIVE MIKE DITKA.
Well, I wasn't one to really hate anyone, cept jimmy, god I hate him. Don't know about most of everyone, but even if I did hate you Bonnie, congratulations. One would have to be a real big ass to avoid that....on a board no less.

I think its been ages since I posted. But sup ladies, I've been good. Having fun with a actual job ( so I call it, but James laughs at me for it ) at target. Apparently its a dumbass job, but one that pays me, so hay, I could care less. I final have cash to do stuff I've always wanted to when out with the group. But now it looks the group has all grown up and gone their ways and have their own things to take care of.

Jeff, I hate you so much because you are so funny, yes you call me what you call me, but I see no insult in it. I'm not one to go that far, mind toning it down a bit? Because I'd really like that interweb can of worms not to effect real life.

I was thinking of revising my list of how much I hate all of you because as time goes on, all of you have changed so much, like Bonnie has mentioned, but I don't know what I would say about each one of you because I have only been talking with Jimmi-o and Mike. I dunno maybe we could all do some stuff like old times, if it were possible.

bleh, fags.

November 28, 2004

Coming home from school was...not good. I had a bit of a nervous breakdown and ended up staying inside most of the time, or spending time alone. There were a few friends whom none of you know because ...you don't...that I could hang out with, but merely because they are rather indifferent, mere associates who I happen to spend time with. They don't care if I change because they never really knew me in the first place. Minus spending time with one good friend, I felt ashamed of the changes I have gone through. I know I shouldn't be because they are positive changes that will help me in the future, but ...I don't know. If I never see any of you again, it would probably be for the best. You'd probably hate me now, and if you hated me before, you'd hate me more now. I've grown up and its sad. I'm sorry. I'm going to be an officer in the United States Army...and that is not something to take lightly in this day and age.

GOBBLE GOBBLE YOU FOOLS!




So, yeah, happy Thanksgiving you fools. i meant to write that yesterday but I was too hopped up on Tryptofan... it was like a crazy '70's nightmare...

Trolls kept coming up to me saying, "hey, have you seen michael... he is our furry lord"...

I just kicked them several times... it was good fun. It reminded me of the time i stole a sandwich from a hobo after fighting him in a street version of mortal kombat.

>.... if this post is weird... blame the TRYPTOFAN!

TRYPTOFUN TRYPTOAWESOMENESS!

November 23, 2004

so the craziest thing happened today.
i ran into andy at pierce. he's looking good.
i guess it wasnt crazy, just unexpected.
welll its almost turkey day, and im pump.
convince my parents to actually have thanksgiving dinner this year.
wasn't looking foward to micro-waved burretos and hot pockets (but i do have turkey and broccilli hot pockets and they are good...).
i have to do a stupid essay today.
i hate essays.
i hate a lot of things, especially mexicans.
yo, neeger-i need younger to drop my PS2 off, and all my movies (and yes, that includes Slacker you fag) tonight.
If you have forgotten the movies, there are in this order: Blazing Saddles, THX1138, Slacker, Texas ChainSaw Massacre, Eternal Sunrise of the Spotless Mind, Adaptation, and I'm sure there are others, but i have forgotten them.
That doesn't mean i don't want them back.
I need them before you forget, and than need money and go off to Blockbuster and trade them in for credit.
That irritates me, I know I'm forgetting a movie in there, somewhere.
fuck.
well, i'm going to end this post.
If i don't talk to any of you before thanksgiving, i hope someone close to you gets cancer, you recieve a VD from your tomfoolery, and your family fights and an uncle goes nuts and start capping niggas.

The WALLEROO?!

The Walleroo!



Okay... years and years ago... I went on a tirade about how Kangaroos
and Wallabies are evil and that they would be used one day in the
ultimate conquest of the human race.

And of course you fuckers didn't believe me. You all never do. It's
always more of the: Oh what crazy thing is Jeff talking about now..."

First, to that I'd just like to say: I hate you all. Especially
you Michael, you FURRY-FREAK!"


Secondly..., and far more importantly:

I WAS RIGHT!



Don't believe me? Big surprise...

But now I have proof. Proof that I was right, which turns out to
usually be true 95.67% of the time.


Wallaroo, goat escape from Vanilla Ice's house in Port St. Lucie


Associated Press

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - New hit songs may not be coming for Vanilla
Ice, but the rapper's animal troubles are.

The singer who had a 90s hit with "Ice Ice Baby" called animal control
officials Wednesday to report that a wallaroo and goat found wandering
around Port St. Lucie over the weekend had escaped from his backyard,
city officials said.

The rapper, whose real name is Robert Van Winkle, may have problems
getting his pets back. The wallaroo, a cross between a wallaby and a
kangaroo, is considered an exotic animal and is not allowed in Port
St. Lucie. Farm animals such as the goat also are banned.

The animals were picked up Saturday by Port St. Lucie Animal Control
after a woman reported them, saying the 60-pound wallaroo had
scratched her and kicked her car.

Van Winkle was not at his Port St. Lucie home Wednesday. A schedule on
his Web site said he was in California taping a motorcycle commercial.

In January, Bucky the wallaroo accidentally scratched his face. That
forced him to cancel photo shoots and interviews for his appearance on
VH1's "Surreal Life" reality show, which featured celebrities whose
fame had faded.

Van Winkle, 36, bought the wallaroo from a Florida breeder after his
Arctic Canadian lynx died three years ago, he has said in interviews.
Van Winkle was cited twice in 1998 for keeping the lynx in his
backyard.



Now don't go telling me that Vanilla Ice is not evil in some way...
and now he keeps, as a pet, the combined evil of a kangaroo and a
wallaby!

And he has a goat!

We should all know from "Amityville Horror" that goats are evil.
Goats are those things that get sacrificed in the Bible.

Now, if and yours were sacrificed in the Bible over and over again,
don't you think that you'd be a little pissed and turn into an evil
animal? And Wallabies and Kangaroos are the same. I mean, c'mon,
Australians don't have goats over there (or they were imported) (or
they probably do but... I don't care), so instead they sacrificed
Wallabies and Kangaroos... pissing them off, and making them hate
humanity.

Couple all that animal hatred with Vanilla Ice, who has every reason
to hate people for shunning him after the fiasco that he calls his
music career, and you have one man more dangerous than all the
terrorist groups out there.

Something to think about.

With regards to this board... the board is dying not necessarily
because everyone is lazy (that's my single reason and not your alls)
but because 1. the novelty has worn off, and 2. james hasn't done
anything in a long time worth reporting about and making fun of.

It's been years... so if you want to increase traffic to the board,
you have to start doing stuff outside of the board. Camping, movies,
lighting James' hair on fire...

I personally like the board. Always have, even though I don't have
time to post sometimes. I've been learning some stuff on the side
which should actually make my posts more ... unique.

If you all are going to do something to the board... at least leave
the board for me. I like it. I will continue to check it even when
all of you are dead.

(Which will be in 13 months, six days, and eleven minutes - commuter
bus accident)

A Call for Action
Anyone interested in James's new Comic Ability becoming a part of this site? I asked him a while back if he could just dump the board part and start a daily or roughly daily comic on here. Not just about slugs, mind you... Well I've thought about it a bit and I've come to a few (probably wrong) conclusions:

- LJ has taken over in the daily drama department
- Blogger is a very unfriendly way to blog.
- LJ's audience extends past our simple High School relationships
- With those three key arguments, this place is doomed beyond the tag-board
- The tagboard has died, the one and true reason for visiting as of late.

I love the name, I love the concept that this has done as well as it has with our limited numbers, and I think we all need this site to continue.

How about we refine my ideas a bit here.... Lets reduce the Blogging size, get James to start posting his work, and get a working tagboard back online. It might be good to even startup a few sections like an art section for Mike, a crazy rants section, a Spleen! section. Or whatever....

I know we're all lazy and none of that will come to fruition but I wanted to state my case.

Anyone still out there hear me? James, I'd especially like you to pay attention.
Hey James, would you be so kind and fix the CSS on this page so that FireFox will see it correctly?
I think this might help:

- the difference is the CSS box model.

IE measures the width of an object from border to border, where Mozilla measures the width in terms of the content.

You can force Mozilla to measure it the same way by adding these to your style definitions.

Code:
-moz-box-sizing:border-box;box-sizing:border-box;


I'm more comfortable in measuring things from border to border, so all of my HTML/XHMTL templates have this definition...

Code:
DIV{-moz-box-sizing:border-box;box-sizing:border-box;margin:0;padding:0;}

Hmmm, I was thinking about this...

Reading Google Zeitgeist ... I noticed simple queries that could have been placed in the address bar with a www. and .com and worked just fine! This got me to thinking that perhaps a lot of lazy people out there place google as their start page and then simply type in things like 'mapquest' to instantly get the link. Hmmm, saves ya about .001 minutes I'd think. In the future, I see a more plain version of the internet. Google's front page hits the nail on the head on this point, and their ad's are the perfect style as to not be intrusive as well.

Now, if only they can refine that damn search engine... It feels so rough to me; I swear I do half the searching in my head thinking of enough 'uncommon' words that would be associated with what I'm looking for as to get good results. I to see a few of the basic-advanced (I Know, oxymoron.) search capabilities as a few small buttons or letters on the front page. As it stands, it's functional.

This thought all started today watching my fellow coworker type a full on sentence in a search field! She was looking for lyrics to some song, typing something like "'s words for the song "don't fence me in" I want to print it." Holy Hell! Does she think the damn thing is even remotely smart? Do you notice there's no word Lyrics in there? Ugh, how lacking can the understanding of a machine progress to?

Anyhoo... You all might not like what I start posting in here, but I happen to like this place and don't want it to fall into the Land of the Dead(links).

I'm going to do something about this place... Looks as if the Tag-Board site has died... this place will really go to hell now... I'll figure it out.

THERE WAS NO TRAIN STATION
THERE WAS NO DOWNTOWN
SOUTH HOWARD HAD DISAPPEARED
ALL MY FAVORITE PLACES
MY CITY HAD BEEN PULLED DOWN
REDUCED TO PARKING SPACES
A, O, WAY TO GO OHIO


WELL I WENT BACK TO OHIO
BUT MY FAMILY WAS GONE
I STOOD ON THE BACK PORCH
THERE WAS NOBODY HOME
I WAS STUNNED AND AMAZED
MY CHILDHOOD MEMORIES
SLOWLY SWIRLED PAST
LIKE THE WIND THROUGH THE TREES
A, O, OH WAY TO GO OHIO


I WENT BACK TO OHIO
BUT MY PRETTY COUNTRYSIDE
HAD BEEN PAVED DOWN THE MIDDLE

well, being that its almost halloween, and it has become an unofficial tradition to watch Ed Wood movies during this time, i think this:

http://www.cnn.com/2004/SHOWBIZ/Movies/10/27/leisure.edwood.reut/index.html

is an appropriate link.
so what are you faggets planning for halloween? we should so totally throw a sexy party.
or not.

anyway-im getting a job at office depot. apparently, turning in the application and knowing the store manager isnt enough, and i actually have to do an interview monday. im guessing its all just a formality. i know most of you faggets will laugh your asses off when i dont get hired, since i said that this is a guarrenteed job. fuck you all.

my car is on its way, so i figuare that once i get my car here, and the job-we should get another big thing going. like an UBER barbeque/poker/drink fest. i say we should since we've all been busy doing other stuff, that we're forgetting the most things in live. Eating meat, drinking liquor and playing cards.

well, im gonna go back to my studies. I have a Midterm monday, a "written assignment" due on monday, an essay due tuesday, a power point presentation (thats right, i said power point) due friday, and a take home exam due wednesday. the take home test is the easy one. weee. high school part 2 is oh so fun.

fucking niggers.

October 23, 2004

Rawr!
Well....I'm drunk as shit. Damn this is cool. I've never psoted drunk before. So now I'mg oint to. hehehehehhehehehe.
you losers.
Bonnie -- why wyo9uld you not leave if you hate it so mcuch. I mean. If you hate them....then get another job...a job that pays the same, but give syou your rights back....and doesn't involve those shitty hours.
or you could jus thave sex with me for $5 an hour. But maybe UI'm just sayin that cuz I'm drunk outta my mind.

I haven't seen JJ Parker in like a year. So we went and god rrunk tonight. Man does it feel good. We even met a good number of people. Drunk People,. Peiople like us. Ya,. We're gonna meet them again. And get drunk again. Indeeduyo.

Forgive my drunkenness.I 'm drunk.

October 22, 2004

Can someone please remind me why I joined the military? I mean, honestly, a military academy is such a bad idea. I stay up until 1:30 am doing homework then get up at 5 to go do physical training. Then I go to class all day and THEN I have some sort of lab like squad tactics and destroying bunkers and then I still have to come back to the barracks and deal with these crazy ass girls that I'm supposed to be in charge of but I can't stand most of them to a point where I don't want to tell them what to do because that would involve talking to them. The sad part is, as much as that just sounded like it sucked, I don't want to leave. I wouldn't even if I could. The only thing I really miss are my consititutional rights, but since I'm in the military anyway I don't have those. Yeah. So you guys need to post more...adam, post about your little baby...I want to see pictures! What is its name anyway? I need sleep!!!!!!!

This Message Has Been Approved By... Me... For the Office of EVERYTHING.

This Message Has Been Approved By... Me... For the Office of EVERYTHING.

Lately, as many of you have noticed, there have been a slew of people
running for office all over the country... from President of the
United States, to Commissioner on Toiletries.

It must be confusing for you all, and I understand that.

My name is Jeff Paulino...

and to simplify things, for you the voter, I am simply running for EVERYTHING.

Yes, that's right. You no longer have to wonder who is running for
what. No more questioning who are the contenders for the Governor of
Washington, The Mayor of Seattle, the Public Lands Commissioner, the
Vice President of the United States... so on and so forth.

My platform is simple and my promises so easy to understand that a
five year old will point and laugh at you if you don't understand
them.

I promise to fix EVERYTHING.

How you ask?

Simple: By fixing EVERYTHING.

Get it? Or do I have to send over a five year old?

You see, unlike the many contenders for the various public offices
throughout the nation, I am offering you, the people... MY PEOPLE...
straightforward and simple answers.

I will not raise taxes, but I will increase spending for education.

How you ask?

Simple: I will not raise taxes.

And I will increase spending for education.

Aren't you tired of these politicians saying they will do something
but without providing you with a plan of action?

Will fret no longer. Here is my plan for you, my America... A plan of
simplicity.

I will simply fix EVERYTHING.

So come November 2nd, don't vote for those other guys in all those
other races. Simply Vote Jeff... for the Office of Everything!

You'll also cut back on that pesky Carpal Tunnel, as you'll only have
to vote once, a vote that will encompass all the other choices.

Vote today. Vote Me. Vote the Future of EVERYTHING.

Bonnie : that was my largest beef with the school system. I proclaimed and bitched and bemoaned that they didn't really teach anything in high-school, but looking back I realise where my fault lay - and it isn't with the system itself.

It is with the students. They don't want to learn, or rather it isn't that they do not wish to learn - rather - that they rather just want to be told what to regurigtate and get on with their lives.

There are some who did, in fact, go to school to learn - and they did. That was my folly. I figured that merely because the students themselves were uninterested in self education and listening and actually learning that the problem must be with the system.

Turns out that all their bullshit " School is what you make of it " was right.
Turns out I was wrong. Turns out I was barking up the wrong tree.

Jeff - your spleen nonsens is not only tiring, but annoying. Stop smoking the chronic. You've lost a good 80% of your coherant thought process and reason/rational - if you stop now you can probably recover a good majority of it.

Bradbury - I'm not a geek. =b

October 02, 2004

Awww, Bonnie...

I love and hate you two...

AND I WILL EAT YOUR SPLEEN!!!

and Michael Rigney...

I WILL EAT YOUR SPLEEN!!!

ALL SPLEEN, ALL THE TIME!!!
So...the english teacher I hated so much I know love. I've actually learned in her class. I realize now that I never LEARNED in high school. I just was given some facts that I remembered for a few days and then forgot after the test. You can't do that here. I actually retain the knowledge and use what I learn. It's great.
It got really cold here all of the sudden. The great thing about missouri is that it can be 80 degrees one day and 30 the next. Boy does that fuck with your immune system.
I'm actually really excited about coming home and seeing you assholes so you best be planning something interesting for around thanksgiving time. Of course, interesting to me is a freaking book store. So whatever. I love and hate you all.

September 29, 2004

You know, James is one of the few people I know who doesn't seem to be willing to come to terms with the fact that he is a geek. There's nothing wrong with it, but it's certainly undeniable.

Think about it, he was one of the first people I knew with his own website.

...

This goddamn early shift is killing me. It's not 8:30 and I'm ready for bed. If I stay up past nine I'm dead the next day. For fuck's sake, how can you require people to be at work so many hours before the sun is even up? We fix computers, why the hell do we need to be there in the middle of the night to do it? All it really accomplishes is making us useless and slow until after lunch, at which point we're lethargic and tired.

September 25, 2004

[afterthought]

Upon much consideration...

I have come to the conclusion...

that i don't like any of you. Not a one. Not even you Michael Collins.

Especially not you.

So to fix that situation... I have decided that...

I WILL EAT YOUR SPLEENS! DELICIOUS TASTY SPLEENS!!!!!

that is all.
Something inside me loves the chaos that is Orlando when these hurricanes arrive. I always tell people in agreement "oh yeah, hurricanes, when are they going to stop." I think, deep inside, I love watching the people run around like chickens with their heads cut off scrapping for batteries, water, ice, canned food, gas, etc.

well you get the idea.

Ah, well in case you don't...

IT SOUND SAD. SAD AND PATHETIC.

Mwahahaha!!!!

LIKE A MONKEY!

It has been raining all day here. ALL FUCKIN' DAY. Though in retrospect, I actually like the rain, so that works out for me. Except for when I'm walking down the street and a car drives by me, and drenches me.

BUT HE WILL PAY WITH BLOOD!!!

Or donuts.

Yeah, maybe just donuts. Cherry Jam filled.

DELICIOUS.
FOOL!!!

How dare you say that Jeff does not care??! HOW DARE YOU!!!

I WILL DESTROY YOU AS I HAVE DECIMATED THE GREAT AND ONCE PROUD MOLE PEOPLE!!!

you and your pathetic military training means nothing to me...

NOTHING!!!

{I had coffee earlier today...}

About this coming up to eat Dicks... (jimmy's idea, mind you... which really... can you expect much less when his mom always wants him to eat meat?)... give me a call when you're up here... i'll probably be able to do it, since I don't work that day at hollywood (but I do at the VA, so I might be tired, or kept late that day).

I guess I'm not too... thrilled only because i could go there everyday... and when you can go somewhere everyday, it looses some of that novel appeal.

Unless it is really awesome...

Anyway.

So in reiteration...

I WILL DESTROY YOU BONNIE. YOU AND YOUR MILITARY SCHOOL!!!

Hey you assholes. WHy didn't anybody warn me that Missouri is one of the worst states, if not THE worst state to live in. I hate it here! Well, it's not that bad, actually. School itself has its good points, English 101 not being one of those. I have a D in that class. Me, with a D, in english. What kind of horse shit is that? I hate my teacher. She gave me an assignment, worth 1/3 of our grade, and told me to be done in 5 minutes when everyone else had two days to do it and I had an excused absence that day. She's such a bitch. Not that any of you assholes care. Anyway, I hope all is well. I finally got the internet in my room so I will continue to bug the shit out of youall. You lukcy ducks.

Right, um... Not so rare, the virus.

Unless, of course, you're speaking of non-Windows platforms. Then I'd be surprised to hear the suggestion (always am when I do)

If you're running a Windows box connected to the internet constantly, without a firewall of some kind and no virus protection, you've probably got a virus.

Not only if it's acting strange, it's just a safe bet that you do.

More likely it's spyware/malware you picked up from a less-than-reputable website you may have visited, but never discount the idea of a virus on an unprotected Windows machine. Good god, it makes me shiver just to think about it.

Four points of advice:

1) Go out and get yourself some antivirus, install it and follow the directions. McAfee is what most IT dudes will recommend - don't use Norton's/Symantec or an off-brand.

B) Get AdAware.

III) Quit using Internet Explorer. Switch to FireFox. IE has more backdoors and easy ways in than a whorehouse in Phnom Phen.

d) Visit Windows Update and make damn sure all the Windows updates relating to security are currently installed on your computer.

Best idea is to install your antivirus and AdAware, make sure their definitions are up to date, then restart in safe mode to run the scans. Otherwise, you're not guaranteed everything will be caught and disposed of.

You'll need 1) and B) to get it clean, but if you don't do III) and d), you're only wasting time with the first pair.

...

Of course, this is just advice from an IT professional. Listen to whoever you like.

ok guys i need some help....i might have a virus on my computer, and ive been looking around for cleaning programs and what have you but they all seem to be crap unless you go the extra mile and get the non-shareware versions. Is there anything i can get off the market that might help me....anybody anybody?

September 10, 2004

Dude, Gmail seriously rocks... almost fully contends with Yahoo! mail... you get a gig of storage, Google search through all your e-mails, messages are arranged into conversations instead of seperate e-mails... Right now it's pretty basic but super fast when loading compared to Yahoo...


Anyway, the real reason I'm up here... When I get some invites; does anyone want one?? Let me know here...

When are we meeting in Seattle tomorrow?

Also, who needs a ride up there?

September 06, 2004

Well, knowing how james probably wont plan anything, and the majority of you probably will be too busy-i'll just put this on here with the hope that maybe you guys are interested. here goes.
On the 17th-thats the friday after next---maybe we should get everyone together. its been a while since I've been around the whole group "together" so i think this would be interesting to see how everyone is doing. I know that alot of you more or less hate each other other or has moved on to the point where you're asking yourself-"Who the fuck is this guy?"
I don't want to go to sharris---i want to go somewhere where the majority of us havent been to-or havent been to in a while. Somewhere Jeff could go and not have to go past Tacoma ("its the smell!") so---here is my plan.
We meet up somewhere---get everyone together---car pool or something. Drive up to seattle. Go to DICKs. Thats right-thats my big plan. maybe not the greatest. Maybe camping would be easier. But-seriously. I never tried Dicks but i have heard that its good. i'd like to try it. and what would be a better time to try dicks than with my good friends that i dont get to see too often? anyway---it you think its a good idea, say so---if not...tell me what would be a better idea. Well...i'm going now---get ready for some Big Buck Hunter.
later niggers.

August 30, 2004

Hungry? Have a bunch of random items around the house, but no idea what to do with any of them...here a lil tip. Mix: 2 cans Walla Walla Onion Chili; 1 can Stewed Tomatoes, 1 can of white chunk Turkey, 1 can of shrimp and 3 chopped up hotdogs. For seasoning and flavor use Johnnys salt and A-1 and about a quarter of a can of Rainier beer. Now i will warn you this has a funny texture but is absolutely delish. I used about a half a can of the beer, but i found that it makes the stew (or whatever you want to call it....gumbo just doesnt fit because it doesnt have the cajun seasoning) pretty heavy so you could probably get away with a skootch less. Also i wanted to add maybe some peppers (the greens and the yellows) and possibly even mushrooms but that might have made it heavier....and i didnt have peppers and mushrooms. Try this recipe

Fuckers.

Went down to the Museum of Glass today. Saw Davide and his crew working. Ran into Kayla.

I really need to go down there more often.

August 16, 2004

Thanks for the goodbye, Bonnie.

I really don't care for personal goodbyes. Not very good at them. Especially leaving Pilchuck, everyone is so close. There will be waterworks, and then I'll join in. Just not pleasant. It seems electronic goodbyes are much more civil.

I am back now. It seems there was some confusion as to that. I got back yesterday morning. Snuck out at 9am without saying many goodbyes. It's just better that way. I don't know when I'll see most of those people again, so it's best to just disappear in the night. Common technique amongst the experienced PIlchuck group. Although, the goodbye hugs are always nice.

Must continue on....
So when I moved to Florida I was like "So man, what are hurricanes like?" and my associate looked at me not really saying much but "rainy, windy--we don't really get much in Orlando as for Hurricanes." So he left it at that and I didn't really question it until we started getting some really wicked rain storm a month ago--rain storms where the sky turns black around 4pm.

Wednesday I found out, hey a Hurricane is on it's way--EXCELLENT! I'm down. Unfortunately at the last second it turns it's eye on Orlando--the first time in 44 years. SAWEET! A CATEGORY 4 HURRICANE COMING MY WAY! I was so stoked I nearly shit myself.


Pre hurricane--nothing much, just rain overflowing from the gutters.


the beast was tied up to the fence: hopefully that'll hold it.


After an inch of water fell from the sky in less than 30 minutes, flooding commensed.

INSERT THREE HOURS OF NINETY MILE PER HOUR WINDS WITH 115 MILE PER HOUR GUSTS!

No one's getting into Taco Bell anytime soon el oh el.

So, after my run with Hurricane Charley, I decided that I'm not much a fan of these weather terrorists. 18 more months in this place...

August 12, 2004

And so it goes...I will be leaving in less than a week for the great state of Missouri to attend the wonderful and prestigous Wentworth Military Academy. How I was accepted to this school, I do not know, and how I got the scholarship that pays for me to go to school, well, that remains a mystery as well. All I know is that I will be an officer in the United States Army in 2 years and from this point on am no longer an enlisted soldier. I have the shitty title of a Cadet. I don't know how this is all going to work out, because it all just kind of hit me. Oh shit, this time next week I will have been in another state for a day. Weird.

I'll be back in november for 10 days for vacation, and I have a month in December for vacation, and then 11 more days in march or april and get out of school in may for summer vacation, so it should all go by fairly quickly.

I don't really see any of you that often, so I don't really feel like saying that I'll miss you. I don't think any of you ever considered me a friend anyway. Bradbury, you are an amazing human being. Out of anyone, I wish you the best of luck because you were always the kindest to me, and to everyone for that matter. So with that being said...luck. Please keep being the honest person that you are. To the rest of you, minus the people who actually call me so I'll just say goodbye to you in person, good luck to you as well. May life smile it's funny little face upon you and may you all be happy or at least content. And I must say for the record, I hated high school. It was a prison for me, and I was so uncomfortable with myself. I think it's safe to say at this point in my life that even though I can't see into the future I'm happy with the now and every day I just find another reason to be happy. Aaron, I think I have you to thank for that whether you know it or not. So thank you. Bye for now, guys.

August 11, 2004

Man, Aaron, you really moved a long way. What, two, maybe three hundred feet. Daring of you.

I'll be there.

August 10, 2004

Yo Niggaz...

Friday August 20, we be having poker here. 10 dollar buy in, Texas Hold'em, winner take all. Blinds will be in place, and will increase with each player eliminated, if the game starts taking too long, we will go to timed blinds.

I wrote jOe an email about a week ago, and I haven't heard back from
him. And then today I came across this newstory and I realize where
he's been all this time.

Alleged hungry burglar nabbed in spree


By Michael Ko
Seattle Times staff reporter


Julie Sanchez keeps a three-stone diamond ring and two pairs of
24-carat gold earrings in a ceramic container on her kitchen
windowsill. But the man who broke into her Shoreline house early
Sunday morning wasn't interested.
Instead, the hungry burglar gobbled a box of Creamsicles, six shrimp
kabobs, about a dozen mini corndogs, half a large package of Costco
lunch meats, two fruit drinks, a glass of milk, a dozen clumps of
frozen cookie dough and several large handfuls of M&Ms.

Sanchez figures he wolfed down everything in 15 minutes.

"We believe he actually heated up some of that food in the microwave,"
said Sanchez, 44, who was sleeping while the man ate.

The family dog's constant barking finally awakened her and her
husband, just in time for them to hear somebody running out the
sliding glass door.

The Sanchez family was the last victim of an unusual burglary spree
that ended later Sunday when Shoreline police arrested a man in his
late 20s. The man, who is in custody at the King County Jail, is not
being named because he hasn't been charged.

Investigators believe that starting Aug. 3, the man broke into as many
as 11 homes in Shoreline and Lake Forest Park, usually late at night
and often when the homeowners were sleeping. And while he occasionally
snatched fistfuls of cash, he usually had only one thing on his mind:
food.

During one break-in, the man even thawed some frozen steaks, fried
them and ate them on the sofa while watching television, said King
County sheriff's Detective Christina Bartlett. In that case, the house
was unoccupied at first. The homeowners returned to confront the man,
who ran away.

In fact, the man was confronted on several occasions, even getting
into a fight at one house. But he ran away each time.

The brazen burglaries ended about 5:30 p.m. Sunday at Berean Bible
Church, on the 2300 block of North 185th Street in Shoreline.
Churchgoers noticed a stranger rifling through a woman's purse. They
held him down until police arrived.

The man had food-related evidence in his car that tied him to the
other crimes, Bartlett said. Police don't have a clear idea of his
motive yet, but are considering whether the man might have an eating
disorder or was just being bold, she said.

Sanchez believes the intruder first ate the Creamsicles, which were in
a outdoor freezer. Then he entered through the kitchen window, which
had been cracked open slightly before the family went to sleep.

When she surveyed the kitchen after the man had gone, drawers and
cabinets had been ransacked and the refrigerator and freezer doors
were flung wide open.

Food wrappers and the contents of her purse were scattered on the floor.

But she found her credit cards, as well as a $50 gift certificate that
was a birthday present for her husband. Other than food, the only
things missing were a small amount of cash from her purse and a jar of
coins.

"I have four kids, and all of them could have been exposed to who
knows what," Sanchez said. "People have endured a lot worse in these
kind of situations, and we're just really fortunate he was really
hungry."

"Remember the jOe"

"Remember the jOe"



Mr. Collins' post about Zach-o and his glory days made me think of
some of the other people we have no associated with in some time.

Then I started thinking of what might have happened to them... to the
likes of Drew... that lesbian chick that Jimmy and James knew... (I
don't know if she was actually a lesbian, they just always seemed to
think she was)... Pinkos. Something like that.

That Air Force guy other than Jimmy...

And of course, the simple answer is... jOe must have eaten them.

So that's how I got to thinking about jOe...

Incidently, that's how I thought, wouldn't it be funny to do an email
recap of jOe.

Probably not, but it doesn't matter because it's my post, and not yours:

For the first few of these, I don't have my side of the convo
because it was never saved... the others should have mine
though

Hey jOe!

It's been a really long time since I talked to you or emailed you or
anything. To be honest, I don't even know if you still check this
email. Hopefully you do...

So how are things going with you? Do you still live at home? Still
working for your dad? Speaking of your dad, has he had anymore
illegitamate children with other women?

I think you're family will one day be the biggest family in the world.
Just a guess mind you.

Are your brothers still freaks? Well, maybe "freaks" is a bit harsh...

I was thinking of organizing another Paintball thing because Jimmy
will be coming back... at least that's what I hear, and I'm not sure
for how long... would you be up for that. It would be fun... MASSIVE
AMOUNTS OF FUN.

Anyway, I have got to get back to work, so respond to this, or else!

Jeff.

August 05, 2004

Hello everyone. It seems the board still has some life in it yet.

I hadn't checked it, and therefore was not around to participate and contribute my ... ah, ever so warped perception of the school system we know as academia.

In stead, I'd like to do a recap on one of our slugs who moved on to bigger, better things.

Do any of you remember ...


Zach Staley???


Yes. Long ago, one of our catalytic slugs. The one who made us get up and do something - but he has long sinced moved onto his illustrious rap-star career. I recall when he first came up with the idea of being a rap star. It was when we were camping the last time he was out here, from the lonesome midwest. He thought it would be cool to come up with a "new hip hop dance" - one that would "really move ya body".

He grabbed a bat and wiggled his body, shaking his appendages like they were dead limbs.

" LOOK EVERYBODY, DO THE ZACHO! " he exclaimed.



the infamous "zacho dance"


It wasn't until later on, at the airport, when we were all saying our goodbyes to eachother that he donned his Proudly Served Veteran hat, saying "This looks like a trucker hat and those are the new thing in underground hip hop rap music, you uncultured fools!"

And he was right. We were uncultured fools. We didn't know nothing about no blackie swing music. Back in those days all negros were good for was picking cotton and stealing televisions, nobody ever thought they'd be a marketable resource to sell phat beats to. Nobody, with the exception of Zach.



zacho at the airport


I remember right as his plane was leaving, and mind you this is way before september eleventh when security was as tight as my little sister's cunt, when the airport security officers told him to take off his trucker hat as "it was unseemly" and "not fit for flying in" - I remember with great clarity him flipping off the officers and exlaiming " FUCK DA POLICE! KEEPIN DA BLACK MAN DOWN! "



zacho feels the black man's struggle


Yes, I remember the old Zach. The Zach who we all went road-skiing with. The Zach who we all thought was gay and told homosexual jokes about him when he wasn't around. The Zach who smelled funny even after taking a shower. The Zach who once fucked a girl in the butt, in a shower, and logged onto the internet immediately after just to regale us of his escapade. Yes, I remember the Zach of olden days past. But those days are long dead and gone.

Now all that remains... is the rap star everyone knows as "VETERAN WHITIE"


Veteran Whitie Reprezentin' Yo!

"Education and the lies within"

"Education and the lies within"



I would agree. I have read study after study that indicates changing
the motivational factors behind learning tend to lead to an overall
increase in learning. But then again, nobody actually pays attention
to that, thinking that it's better if we increase the number of tests
in our school systems... and to stress the ever-consuming importance
of the great and powerful test.

It's saddening, and sickening.

And it's completely overrated. I work with doctors now in a hospital
and I constantly see them referring to manuals, dictionaries,
guidebooks, encyclopedias, journals, the internet... etc. etc. etc...

Nobody ever expects them to remember every thing they were ever
taught. Yes, yes it is important for them to try and retain as much
as they can, but it isn't against the practice to pick up a manual and
refresh yourself.

And therein lies a tremendous problem... When I was in school, they
always gave you the impression that you had to do good on the tests...
you always studied for the tests... you always worked to get the
highest GPA on the tests... the tests were weighted the heaviest.

Another reason why I hated high school - because I became aware of
this problem early on.

I will admit that sure, if we took the pressure off of tests, some
people would only slack off more... but you know what... you just find
another way to reach them. Or you let them fail. I can't say I
necessarily support that, but at the same time, if someone wants to
continuously take for granted opportunities, then the only way they
are going to realize their mistake is to feel its consequences.

As for those that would benefit... I would say they would learn more.
Tests are supposed to be a way for teachers to gauge how much they
have taught their students... not a way for them to ostrecize the
dumb, pushing them further into the background and making them feel
displaced.

One reason why I liked college so much was that the concepts of tests
was different. It wasn't tremendously different, but there were
definitely differing concepts and levels of importance were more
appropriate. Many of my classes wanted you to focus on a final
project or two... the idea behind that being that all of the knowledge
you will acquire will more than likely be used at one point for
something big in your life. But they didn't limit you to only the
things you could remember. You had free access to everything that
could help you along. All you had to do was put the time and effort
into deciphering the knowledge and making it work.

I look forward to graduate school because tests start to fade more and
more away... and in it's place are thesis projects and dissertations.
Yeah, they may be more expansive... but that's when you really learn
to think and not just regurgitate some knowledge.

I think high school seriously needs reform. (Especially Bethel). I
came away from it with good friendships and bonds... but if I hadn't
taken it upon myself to pretty much systematically ignore the basic
doctrines of that school, I would probably be at "Jack in the Box"
right now seeking a career. (Just as a note, I don't look down on
people who work there or anywhere else when they are using it as a
stepping stone toward a greater potential). Not everyone can
automatically do that... I was probably only able to do it because I
was an often dissatisfied-with-my-current-situation type of person.

Bah.
High school sucked for me because I made it suck. I slacked off, played games instead of studying for a test, read philosophy in class, hated the teachers because they could not answer questions, and the lovely times of having people threaten to kick my ass for some menial offense. It sure was a terrible time: having a girlfriend play the "oh gee, I'm pregnant" game with me. Slowly though, after dropping out and working at CBC with James, I decided to get out and not stay stagnant in such a place. I'll be back in a year and a half by the way [if all goes accordingly], so get the booze ready for my return--speaking of which, I turn 21 next month.

I'd have to agree with you there Bradbury. I see a lot of people come into work with the most vacant expressions--probably from a most recent drug or alcohol binger--who are going to one of the most expensive schools in the nation. I also go to class with a lot of people who don't give a shit about the education they're receiving; even though it is just a community college--education nonetheless.

America just approaches higher education in such a way that it diverts attention away from the actual "education" aspect and directs it to the post education: the higher paying job than the average joe. Everyday, as I walk through my school, I am confronted with the "Career Center will get you where you want to be" bullshit, and also, majoring in Philosophy always gets me "So instead of asking 'would you fries with that?' You'll be asking 'should you get fries with that?'" People ask me what I'm going to do with the major and I say, "Anything I want." I'm not going to get a college education to get a better job--the most superficial way of looking at education. I'm in college to learn, not to get a job. I know eventually when I graduate I'll be working as a professor; so after paying over 100k on school, lets think of how fun it's going to be to pay that back with a menial 27k [at most] a year salary as a college or high school professor to start. So, actually, I'm in college also to avoid the impending doom that this nation has put over my head due to the deficit, the money going to the war instead of going to education, and the overall unsupported education system.

I personally think that if we take the focus off a career from the beginning--when they drill it to us in elementary to the later years of high school when they want you to choose what you want to be--and put it into actually learning and making something better of yourself and getting to know the world we live in, I'm sure the turn over rate for college drop outs and unappreciative college students will be dramatic.

August 04, 2004

High School.

It was fun. I did a lot of crazy shit, things you're never supposed to get away with.


Then again, it sucked, for the reasons jEFF mentioned: The fact that the entire primary and secondary education system in this country is only working to further the bullshit sociopolitical situation it has helped create. It squashes true creativity in an attempt to make life easier for the drastically underpaid minions we refer to as "educators." Creativity on the part of students and teachers, that is.

Not to mention the painfully backward caste structure where athletically talented douchebags get lifted up and presented as gods because they can lift heavy objects or run faster than others. Anybody that attempts to be an individual is automatically branded as an outcast, unless of course they join the football team, where they are lauded as a stunning example of a truly great person.

Fuckers.

Forget that. Move on, and join the real world. Things change drastically once you're faced with the fact that your ability to smack the shit out of a leather covered ball isn't likely going to put food on the table or a roof over your head.

Of course, some (many) of these same dimwits go to college on someone else's dime (most likely taxpayers like me) and don't grow out of the high school mindset for another four (or more) years.


It's sad, really, how many people peak in high school. The world has so much more to offer. Then again, someone has to work at Les Schwab changing fucking tires. It sure as hell isn't going to be me. The sad thing is: the people who should be working menial jobs are now getting a ride into college because of the flawed educational system. These assholes are getting degrees in god knows what (they don't) and are now running the fucking world, still holding on to the powerlust and greed they gained as teenagers.

For me, high school was just the start. I didn't know it then, and have no clue now where it is I'm going - but I'm damn sure that high school wasn't the apex.

The fact that I'm sitting where I am writing this is proof enough of that. The people that are here with me right now (Pino Signoretto! - still can't believe that shit) are certainly helping me along in my journey. Seeing that it continues, actually. Where it ends - and what lies along the path - don't really matter right now.


Hmmm, maybe I've been up here too long....

"Beyond Bethel"

"Beyond Bethel"



For me... I wouldn't say that life at Bethel, or during that general
chunk of time, was the best time of my life... not to say that it was
insignificant, because it wasn't...

But that's where I will draw the line.

The reason I don't consider school, high school, to be the best time
in my life is because it really wasn't. It sucked. I was surrounded
by assholes in my grade and subsequent grades. I was in an
institution that worked it's ass off to crush creativity and promote
conventionalism and worked it's best (though definitely not to par
with other schools) to churn out the prototype lawyers and doctors and
teachers that would further the current standard.

And I hated it because it seemed like everyone played along.

Well, except for you people... which is what makes that time in my
life as significant.

No... at least for me, the best time in my life (so far) has been
college. I would gladly go over and over to college... though I would
want to see what graduate school is like before I completely commit to
that claim. (I've heard glorious tales of graduate school that make
undergrad seem... trite.)

I honestly feel that for the most part, those who claim that high
school was the best time of their lives tended to be the preps and
jocks... the ones who ended up working at the Burger King down the
street years later (or if you were a girl-prep then the ones who ended
up working at Fox's year's later). Getting stuck in that "high school
was the best time in my life" mentality will inevitably only slow a
person down and make them long for something that really wasn't all
that great in the first place.

If I had to choose between having the climax of my life at sixteen to
eighteen, as opposed to later (where I would have more opportunity to
really enjoy it/exploit it), I would choose later.

The only other reason people think high school was the best time in
their lives was because it worked to create and churn out
friendships... but if one really wanted, they could take that upon
themselves. That's why, after all, we have such things as poker
nights, Jimmy day's, Zach-o days, and BBQ's at James'.

When I said that I longed for some of the old days, I was more trying
to convey that I think that's what people do no matter what they have
now. I think there is a sort of appeal to having nostalgia about the
past. I know that in some way, in the future I will look fondly at
now, no matter how much it sucks.

This is probably why stories of time travel and altering the past
still appeal to many, if not all at least once in their lives.

I lost my train of thought... so in the end... Mary Kay Letourneau was
released today... Mommas lock up yer little boys!
I've talked about these same things for years. I've always longed for the past. Andy knows this as much as anybody, about me.

Though, I think this is just a general psychological thing, for most. High school is commonly regarded as the best time of one's life, whether they choose to admit it or not (generally due to a resentment of the fact, or running from immaturity, etc)

High school: It's the last chance of your life to really have almost no responsibility. It's where you meet many life-long best friends. Social groups are made, broken, and altered. Most everybody has a social life, even jOe's, to an extent. The year or two immediately following, people are still closely knit. Celebrating being in the real world, having fun without school, looking to the future. Then..it all just kind of dwindles away. People join the airforce, go to college and get careers, others blunder about life trying to figure out what the hell they're doing...some get married, where still others never get out of their high school mentality, throw their friends out the window...and spend the rest of their lives trying to rebuild what they once had, only to find out it's much more difficult without a school environment.
This is life.
And this is why, since the day I turned 18, I began to have an utter dread for the future.
Though it's quite possibly that dread that causes me to be one of the ones bumbling around.

Dude i know exactly what your talking about, perhaps its one of those situations like where the cheetah just keeps walking around aimlessly and all the gazelle just have to poke there heads out. Or maybe this post here will just serve to strike up everyone on the subject of.....just what the hell is napster talking about?
But yah, the past....i keep thinking about it alot, for some reason every time i keep think of Jeff (Mr. Paulino) i always seem to recall the other jeff (Mr. R) speaking of whoring out Paulino's sister. But wow, i keep looking fondly back...remembering those times where i was the guy who sat quietly off to the side in Devlins class after school just taking in everything as Drew and jesse and Collins and good ol penis head ( now theres something from the oldschool....at least my oldschool), listening to some techno with Robert Tremble...one track in particular i remember sounding alot like the soundtrack from Streets of Rage 2.
Jeff trust me, if you think the video store is home to the pinnacle of assinine people, try stepping out onto a golf course or gun club.....in the year+ that ive worked at these places ive discovered that there are so many variations of Yuppie and Redneck that its almost sick...wait it is sick.
Must come up with list to rival Paulinos.....not much of a mission statement but it will have to do.

"The More I Post"

"The More I Post"



I've noticed a disturbing trend with this board and myself...

the more I post... the less others seem to...

Maybe that's just me... but it does kind of seem like it.

Then again, my posts haven't really had my trademark style... namely
making fun of Mr. Collins through a series of elaborate photo-posts.
That I apologize for... since I really haven't had the tools for that.

I also don't have the pictures capable of doing that right now... I
really need to head down there and see all of you fools again and take
pictures again.

I remember when I had the reputation for being the "archiver" of such things.

Then again, there are lots of things I remember that are no longer the case.

I wonder, at times, who else thinks of the past as much as I do. I
think it's one of my chronic conditions... I think of the past a lot.
I don't necessarily live in the past, or try to... but I do look upon
it longingly (there really is no reason for that either, as the past
sucked just as much as the past before that and I would look to that
past longingly as well... and I know that this NOW will be looked upon
somewhat longingly even though it's not particularly grand either).

I wonder if that means that I would choose to live in the past. I
don't think so though. That's what Andy does... or seems to. (Sorry
Andy, but it sort seems like that.) Then again, I think James sorta
does too (Sorry Collins). I mean they both still hate each other even
though it's been what... two years.

I guess that doesn't really say anything by itself. After all, I
still dislike David Sanders... (though honestly I think that's more
symbolic of something else).

What does say something is the constant barrage of text messages I get
from Mr. Collins quoting one or another of Andy's rather depressing or
seemingly self-loathing or emotional-longing away messages... and
sometimes in the middle of the night.

So maybe I'm not alone in this whole "looking favorably to the
past"... and maybe Mr. Collins and Mr. Wegener are more trapped in it
than they realize, or would care to admit. Maybe it's just true of
Mr. Collins, since I wonder how much time and energy Mr. Wegener puts
into keeping track of Mr. Collins' away messages... just as a thought.
Maybe...

Maybe I, Robot 2: Return to the Industrial Revolution, will be a
dramatic masterpiece.

I lost my sequence of thoughts a long, long time ago.

The Old Shirtless Man

"Meaningless Work"



Working at Hollywood Video... you tend to meet all sorts of people.
Some are rather cool, and you don't mind helping them, talking to
them... whatnot. Some are just there, and they come in, grab their
copy of "Paycheck" and walk out the door.

And then there are those groups of people that suck on so many levels
it makes you question why God decided he wanted to fill the people
with humans and not duck-billed platypi.

I would have preferred the duck-billed platypi myself.


Group 1: The "You Got Served" Crowd
These are those people who purposely rent the shittiest movies
around... purposely. They must know the are going to be bad, and yet
they rent them anyway... Now, I'm not trying to sound elitest when I
say this... these are simply those movies that EVERYBODY just
instinctively knows are not going to be good. We all have that
instinct... it's like our Spider-sense for movies. A little tingling
in the back of our collective heads that says, "This movie is going to
be the shittiest movie in existence... turn back now!". We all get
that with movies like 'The Core', 'MI:2', '2 Fast 2 Furious', and 'You
Got Served' (as well as it's sequel: 'You Got Served: Takin' It To The
Streets'.

Yet, these people have some genetic flaw in them that makes them push
past instinct to watch them. It would be one thing if they were
writing a report on shitty movies... or perhaps watching it, fully
knowing it will suck but wanting a cheap laugh anyway. No... there
are these people that watch 'You Got Served', and actually enjoying it
for its merit... as if it had merit.

Group 2: The Bitchy Wives Club
Ahh, these are a particular favorite of mine. These women come in,
and automatically you can tell they are not going to be pleasant
people to deal with. They have that 'fat-woman's scowl' printed
across their face that says, "Give me my popcorn and my Junior Mints
and movie and get the hell out of my way or I'll eat you!". They get
pissed whenever they can't find their movie, and even more pissed when
you help them find it because the fat on their face has obscurred the
viewing capabilities of their eyes. They are angry at the world
because they were once the hot cheerleaders who got saddled with kids
after doing the football team and they aren't pretty anymore. Instead
they've got kids running around the store pulling videos off the
shelves and sticking God-knows-what in their mouths, while asking to
get the latest copy of 'Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen'.

Group 3: The Frat-Guys Squad
Honestly, I don't have as much a problem with these guys as I do with
the other groups here... yeah they are annoying as fuck, and yeah they
don't like paying their late fees, but at least they tend to go about
it in a different manner. They tend to try and talk their way out of
anything, and for a moment it is fairly humorous, until you start to
smell a burning odor, and you realize that they are using all of their
reserve intellect to try to get out of a 3.79 late fee.

It's even worse for the female employees as they have to sit there and
listen to these guys try to flirt their way from a hundred dollar late
fee to a three dollar one.

Group 4: Old People With Checks
This group is by far one of the most tedious. Now, not all of them
use Checks still, but it kind of puts you in the right mindset...
which is anyone over the age of 45-50 who thinks that because they are
old, they are automatically right and don't have to be humble and can
demand that you do anything they want for them because they are old
and fought in the Great War... and wrote Checks for all their ammo
they bought.

I don't mind Old People. Some are funny, and have awesome stories...
but some... Ohhh some of them need to just skip the last few remaining
years of their life if they are going to make us all want to skip the
remaining years of our own.

Group 5: The Conglomerates
Finally you have those people that don't fit nicely into one group or
another, but instead decide to be multi-grouped pisser-offers. I'm
talking about the Old Gay Man Who Ruins Your Movie type. Or the
Bitchy Old Wife of an Ex-Frat Guy. Old the Stinky Possibly Homeless
Old Man Who Flirts With Thirteen Year Olds.

I can't stand them. I despise them. First for being pieces of crap.
Second for not fitting into the pre-designed categories I have made,
making me have to define a new category for them. Who do they think
they are? Listen to me Gay Man Who Ruins My Movies... if you ever
ruin another movie for me, I'll hijack you and drop you in the middle
of Redneck country... I'd like to see you rent a movie about young gay
boys out there in Greenville, Mississippi. I'm sure Richard M. Bergis
would help you out.

I don't mind gay people. Some of them are cool and funny, and not
just the lesbians. What I don't like is people ruining my movie,
hanging out around the store when we are trying to close and I want to
go home, and then acting offended when we want them to leave because
of our need for sleep.


Where was it written that simple part-time jobs like Hollywood Video
and Target had to have really shitty customers? Where? Why can't
they all be cool people?

Return of the Jimmy

"Return of the Jimmy"



I agree, by the way. We should do paintball again. I haven't done it
in over two years, I think... so I'm gonna suck, but that's okay,
because it's not like any of you will be pros either. Well, except
for maybe Steve, but that's cause that's what Steve does. Damn you
Steve for having that be what you do.

That's okay though... we can all still shoot Michael.

And I know I'm going to take flak for this, but I say we bring jOe,
and we play Paintball with him again. C'mon... I mean that's what's
classic. That's the way it was before Jimmy got all "I wanna join the
Air Force for the really good food" and left for Alaska. ALASKA.

By the way, I hate ALASKA... almost as much as I hate CALIFORNIA...
maybe more in some ways. Fuckin' Alaska seems to steal everything
from me.

I will kill you ALASKA. Do you hear me... I will kill you dead.

You and your precious ELK and OIL RESERVES.

Why the hell did we add ALASKA to the United States? At least we had
a reason for CALIFORNIA. We wanted their beaches and their gold...
but then they gave us the STDS and Mexicans.

DAMN YOU CALIFORNIA! You gave us Crystal! I will never forgive you for that.

I suppose the two are mutually evil. They are probably part of that
Axis of Evil.

Now, I know that typically an Axis of anything should be in threes,
and according to Bush, the Axis of Evil is something like Iraq, Iran
and North Korea...

But then again, it is Bush's Axis of Evil... so he probably
miscalculated and thinks there are more. I wouldn't be surprised.

In fact, there's an idea... I will trick Bush into thinking that
California has seceeded the Union and become a part of Iraq. I will
trick him into believing that Arnold is really a member of al-Qaida.
I bet he doesn't realize that Arnold is really Austrian.

If Kerry were elected, I wonder what the jokes would be like.
Clinton's era had pretty good jokes... Bush's has obviously. I
wonder... should Kerry be elected... what would his jokes be?

His wife was apparently the wife of the Heinz Ketchup guy - from what
I hear. That could be an opening. You know, along the lines of:
"Hehe, Kerry married Ketchup..."

Okay... not so funny - but you know jOe would laugh at it.

... then he'd eat Kerry's wife.

Email Approach to Blogging

Yeah, so I've decided to try this email-posting thing, so that I can
finally start reposting, and reporting all of my wonderful things to
you fine people. Such fine people.

Also... I have noticed that my cell phone as the ability to take
pictures and send them via email. So just imagine the posting
opportunities that presents me. I have tested it on a friend, and it
worked, once.

Since then no luck... but I'm gonna keep trying. Soon I will post
pictures of the annoying people that I see at Hollywood Video,
complete with story.

I have one now, but I have to determine how to correctly post it the
the site. I doubt simply attaching it to this email will do the
trick.

Gah, I need to probably buy webspace so I can start storing pictures
and posting them to the internet.

Hey Bradbury, you have a .Mac account... how versatile is it? Can I
access most of it's features off a PC, for when I'm at work? I
noticed the price on a .Mac account was fairly reasonable, especially
for the space given and all that - or at least I figured it was
reasonable. Let me know how accurate my assumption of this is.

For the time being, I'll just email James the picture and have him
post it if I cannot figure this out.

If it all works out, this may be the beginning of a whole new posting
era for me...

hehe, then again, I certainly have said that in the past... so much
so, that all of you are probably laughing and having nostalgia about a
certain... MEGApost...

I miss the glory days.

Today in dead horse weekly: More beating
Tremors 4: The ledgend Begins
Strikes terror into your heart doesnt it...the fact that basically they went the way of the Dusk till Dawn franchise and came up with a prequel towards the end of the series of movies. How friggen original. Although it was fun watching cowboys getting et by giant worms

July 25, 2004

I just ate a can of Easy Cheese for dinner. So what are you fools all up to?  No one has posted in a while.  Thinking that you're all dead.  Maybe you all got flesh-eating bacteria.  That would've been cool.  Anyway, watching Tombstone.  Reminds me of when Aaron, James and me were in Borders and talking about what were the five movies that everyone would like.  I forget what we ended up deciding, but I'm pretty sure Tombstone was on it.  Before we put in Tombstone we were watching Boondock Saints.  I have a question for everybody: How the hell did anyone confuse William Defoe in drag as a woman-let alone a hot chick?  Whatever-the movie was overrated. When i get out (hopefully next month) we should all either go camping again, or Paintball. I don't know-i just miss all of you fuckers.  Even Michael.  God i hate Michael.  If there is anybody that got flesh-eating bacteria, I hope it was him.  The Village comes out Friday.  Hopefully it will be good.  I'm counting on it. Dammit-i drank too much water and now i have to pee, but theres no one here to cover.  Jesus.  I'm thinking about pissing in the fucking trash.  Sgt Robnson went out on a smoke break, so I'm just hoping he doesn't decide to smoke two cigarettes...or has 100s. I wonder what if they'll ever make a sequel to Super Mario Bros the Movie.  What if they did, and it was actually good.  Wouldn't that be, like, fucked up?  Like it becomes the next Lord of the Ring, becomes a huge hit and wins an Academy Award.  Wow, I really need to sleep.  And pee.  RIght now I'm trying hard not to think about it.  Thinking about the future: Flying cars, Hover boards and Cloning.  I wonder if the Red Seox will finally win the World Seris in the future.  Like in 2020 or something.  Didn't Back 2 the Future perdict that the Cubs wil win the Wolrd Seris in 2017?  That would be fucked up shit if that happened too.  Where the fuck is Sgt Robinson?  Why isn't he back yet?  Fucking -A.  Heres a tip for all of you.  Don't ever think, the next time you really have to pee, but you're in a place where you can just whip it out and piss, don't ever think you can just let a little bit out, and hold it until the plane lands.  Believe me, once you start its impossible to hold it in.  Plane ride-from Gulf Port Mississippi to Houston.  The plane was starting its decent and the "GIANT VOICE" said that we had to stay seated due to turbulance or something.  I reall had to pee, but I was worried that, with my luck, the plane would bank to the left and I'll piss all over myself and on the other passengers.  SO i decided that i can wait until we land in Houston.  Well fifteen minutes later, and the plane was still on its decent into and I had to piss real bad.  It felt as if my bladder was going to explode and spray piss and guts and blood all over the plane.  So I decided that maybe if i just let a little bit out, not too much-just enough to get the pressure off of my bladder.  I don't really think i need to finish this story and Sgt Robinson is back so I'm going to go piss---

---Ok, back.  Thank fucking goodness.  Sgt Robinson just put in Texas Chainsaw Massacre.  The remake.  I really liked the ending of the remake.  I thought it was a well done re-make, but I seem to be in the minority though.  I'm sorry, but the scene where Jessica Biel is running away from Leatherface in a White Tank top and short shorts was classic.  You can obviously tell it was directed by a male.  I mean, when she runs into the Meat Packing factory (or slaughter-house, i dont remember) and Leatherface follows her in and for no reason, turns on the Water Sprinklers.  And than shes wet, with a White Tank top and Short Shorts.  And than she decides to hide in the freezer.  So than, shes wet, in a white tank top and short shorts hiding in a freezer.  Oh man.  That made the movie for me. Oh and Jessica Biel is hot.

Man, i hate John Kerry. I wish John McCain was running. I wish Ditka didn't decide not to run for senate. Man, Ditka for president. Ditka. Mike Ditka. Wow. President Ditka. Has a nice ring to it. I read something a while back during the football season. I think it was a poll about who would win the Superbowl. They had the usual teams and one of the options was "Other" A good majority of the votes were for others and the comments all said "Ditka." I don't know, just saw that as being funny.
FUck you all.

Has anyone seen that new Hate Crime commercial? I wan't to meet the guy who made it.
Enough rambling. None of you people probably read this anymore. I hope a family member close to you dies soon of cancer.
