Kids tomorrow won’t rock.

If we made children carry heavy rocks as they grew up, they’d probably grow up really strong with rock shapes permanently imprinted into them. Seems like a win-win situation to me. And they can celebrate turning twenty by finally being allowed to pass their rocks on to new kids. They’ll be called Generation Rock. Because they will suck as a generation, the phrase “that rocks” will fade away and be replaced by “that barks” and the downward spiral of civilization shall continue.

Ah well. It started off as a good plan.

Apart from this, I have little to report. So I won’t. Go away.

I Am The Spirit Of The Times

I had seen the movie Zeitgeist mentioned by several of my friends on Facebook over the last year, so when I saw a link to one of the parts of the movie I thought I could sit down and watch that part. It was all about my hated enemies money and corporate greed, after all. I guess I skipped parts one and two and cursory research says they’re about Religion and the attacks on the World Trade Center, so I don’t feel like I missed much.

For the most part, the film holds up as an interesting string of connections and theories. I don’t know how much of it is accurate, and really how could I research these facts myself? Google? I’d end up with more facts of the same nebulous value. The film’s position as a subversive documentary bringing shocking facts to daylight works against it for me. I can’t help but think they’d be willing to state something as a certainty when, in fact it is still only a theory, just to get their point across.

That said, I’m still on their side. I believe that the greedy people want to keep their wealth and will do bastardly things to do so. I could definitely see someone wanting to create an ongoing war as a means of keeping profits rolling in. And the government allowing schools to slip in value to keep people dumb and distracted? Yeah, I buy that.

Just a few comments:

I’m willing to accept the idea that maybe, just maybe, a shadowy organization that controls things allowed an opening for an attack on America, but to say they specifically caused the attacks on the World Trade Center does kinda write off the actual complaints of angry and desperate Muslim people as meaningless. There are very real issues that allow people in other countries to hate the “Civilized World” such as poverty and our perceived indifference. If we were to all work together helping get the rest of the world up to our own standards of living and education, it wouldn’t be as easy for the manipulators to find guys willing to blow themselves up to prove a point.

Also, the film touches upon the idea of a One World Government just briefly and acts as if it would be a horrible thing. Yes, I don’t want the world to be ruled by one government that is made up of puppets working for corporations, but I think the idea of just one governing body (one that serves the people, rather than rules them) would be a very great thing. Borders are good for locating your geological position, but apart from that, they just serve to separate people.

Right now, the States is going through some pretty rough financial times. It will be interesting to see what the government will be allowed to get away with to get them out of them. If the film is correct, this would be the controllers tightening their grip on the populace to make them accept any way out, no matter how evil.

And that’s it for now.

Interstate 2008

With gas prices as high as they are these days, I find myself wondering “What would Groove Champion do?”

And the answer is obvious. All of you should attach guns to your cars and fight crime and corrupt corporations. Get to it, folks.

The Continuing Adventures of Girlshirt

The shirt I ordered from Telltale Games a few weeks back and accidentally picked a Women’s Small instead of a Men’s Large has arrived today. It is indeed, a Women’s Small and therefore useless to me.

So, if any of the theoretically millions of women who are reading this wear a size small t-shirt and like Sam and Max, you’re welcome to have it. But since none of you exist, this will take up space in my room for now.


I’ve managed to get Swimmer’s Ear. What the chunks? Homeboy can’t even swim! And yet here I spent the last day and a half with what feels like a tablespoon full of fluid in by my anvil and hammer and other tiny bone.

Apart from the fact that it occasionally gets painful (as I tried to sleep last morning for example) the primary problem with Swimmer’s Ear is that it blocks sounds like an earplug and that has the effect of amplifying inside-head noises like crunching or swallowing or that constant swearing voice that we all try so hard to block out.

Anyway, I can officially state that I’m not a fan of Swimmer’s Ear. You’re all amazed to hear it.


Duck language is hard.
Too many words sound the same.
Ducks should learn English.

I looked up the other tiny bone. It’s the stirrup. No wonder I didn’t remember that. Back when they taught me about the earbones, I probably had no idea what a stirrup was, so it didn’t stick in my mind the way the others did. They really should have taught me about stirrups first. I now officially hate the Canadian school system.
