Random Funny Shit

This site Something Awful has a funny gallery of spoofs of those Choose Your Own Adventure books...Love the "Dude, You're Pretty Much Fucked" one :)

This Blogspot, Blinkorama, is made up entirely of pictures of people blinking on tv. AS you can tell I am bored today and so, since I am housitting for my mother and she has the supa-dupa fast cable internet, I am staring blankly at the computer screen. I am trying to escape the reality of my life, which is moving for the umpteenth time and dealing with an alcoholic and also other assorted family drama. But I will save the drama for my Mama, as they say, so here is another funny site

Miscellaneous, Etc.

There is a hilarious parody of those depressing chain emails that get forwarded about peoples misfortunes and try to lay a guilt trip on time you get one, copy and paste and send this back instead...
Whoever came up with it kicks ass.

Tons more stuff at

Doing the approaching thirty-one purge…. Gonna move again…move on. I am trying to eliminate lots of crap so that I don’t have so much to move. I have tons of CD’s. Mainly because I used to work at a Wherehouse Music and we had the used CD’s… employees could buy ‘em for a buck. So therefore, there may have been an artist who had one or two songs I liked, yet I would buy the whole CD because it was so cheap. Even if they were cheesy, which most of them were. So as I am packing, I am putting the one or two songs I like off each CD into my computer. Oddly, they often seem to be the eighth song on the disk… Then I will take the CD’s themselves downstairs to the laundry room where someone might like em. I have been leaving boxes of stuff I don’t want down there and usually someone else has use for it. It’s kind of cool, actually. Instead of sitting there on my shelf someone may well grab this Bobby Brown or Winger or INXS and say “hey, I used to love that when I was a kid”. Okay, so I am down to some shady CD’s, but the movie selection today will be pretty cool. I was a Blockbuster employee so I have loads of tapes because we could sell them used as well. Stuff that I like quite a lot but have not watched in a long time and could conceivably rent in the future if I really felt like seeing it again (and also stuff that seems to be on television all the time.) I am even going to put my Star Wars trilogy, the original tapes….I have the DVD, and I don’t like the special edition added stuff…but I also have the tapes that were my dad’s from the nineties when they re-released the original versions for the last time. So I was only keeping the old old ones for nostalgia’s sake, but what the hell. I looked on ebay to see if they were worth something as a collectable, but not really. So now, it’s a freebie for someone in the building. I might put my Indiana Jones too. And ask for the DVD for my birthday.

This is kind of depressing… but I do feel like I am ready for a big change and it is not going to happen if I stay in my current situation. So I am getting rid of excess crap, for some reason it makes me feel a little bit energized. Though I am terribly sick of starting from scratch every few years. I hope I have really learned something and will have better judgment in future. Every time I have a major change I say that. Then I go on to work for works sake at jobs I hate and date guys that I think are cute, despite the obvious warning signs of potential problems… This time, it has to be different. I can’t go through life with blinders on and hope for the best. I have to make it happen. I sound like a self-help book and an asshole. Oh well, like I said I am purging right now. Blah blah blah.

At the movies....

Today I saw Sin City, and, know what? I didn't really care for it. Then again, I was in a lousy mood so I might not have cared for anything. I liked the Bruce Willis bit, though it was depressing, but the other parts...I was just like...whatever. But I guess it's not a good idea when I am feeling glum. I wanted to see Kung Fu Hustle but it is not out here yet. I might have watched Fever Pitch except I am totally down on romance these days.

There was a preview for a new movie, apparently starring Bob Hoskins, as he was the person shown the most in the preview. So I thought, good, cuz I like that fella...then they never even mentioned his name. What up with that? Anyhoo...

Then there was a preview for Hitchiker's Guide, and it looks interesting so I will definitely go. Also there was a preview for House of Wax which they cleverly started by showing Paris Hilton through the viewfinder of a video camera, so for a split second you think- Paris's porno is getting a theatrical release? Whafuck? and then you go ohhh...

And of course there was the weird paper bags talking about Fandango and "Inconsiderate Cellphone Man" who is a doppelganger for every third person I pass on the street downtown. I am moving again though so not much more of that I'm afraid. Maybe this time I will finally get it all right. Ohhhhh...I'm tired...

Blog, Snog, Flog your Log

Made a tidy sum waitressing yesterday, guess there are worse things I could do. Still woke up feeling depressed. Something about this time of year gets me blue and I am not sure why. Will try to just relax and not take life too seriously.

Also, am I crazy or was Scott Ian in the audience on the last American Idol?...holy cow I don't even know who got booted this week and now is a fine time to look that up. Not sure why I like that show, bur I can't help watching. I went through a period of no TV and now I like to watch any crappy thing I can get my eyes on. My favorite contestant is Bo, but I must say I was happy w/ the Constantine "Bohemian Rhapsody". I will always be glad that Ruben won that one year instead of that lil shit Clay.

Le Moment D'Élévation De Crapaud

Toad is crapaud en francais? My goodness.... Babel Fish is a site where you can translate other sites or text into many different languages. I think I heard of it before, but I did not know what a babel fish was until I finally read Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Three days ago. Not sure why I never read it before. I am curious to see the film now.

Also I am completely geeking out about the upcoming Revenge of the Sith. I just got the Clone Wars series DVD...I love it. I am a Star Wars geek, with action figures and such, but I must admit I would never line up way beforehand, especially at the wrong theater heheh. That is just cuckoo. I will even wait a day or two after the opening if the crowds seem crazy. For the last one, I think I went the day it opened or maybe the day after, to a matinee, and there were not that many people. You never can tell. People can't all be total dorks like me.

Anthrax- original line-up reunited??!??!

NO fucking way! That rules! Seriously!

Since the big three-oh I have been sooo nostalgic and Anthrax was my favorite band when I was a lil teenager. I was a dorky lil metalhead kid. So I would love to see em again with the original line-up and all...looks like they're mainly doing dates in Europe but they oughta play here... or at (the very) least put out a DVD of the concert.... anyway it brings back great memories of watching NFV and listening to my favorite album, which was Among the Living. Didja know they got me reading Stephen King as a kid? also Spreading the Disease and State of Euphoria and Persistence of Time...which I reviewed in a junior year video production class to puzzled response from my non-metal classmates (all of them, that is)... and then there was the fun of my mother having to drive us to the concert...and she got all offended when they chanted Suck My Mother Fucking DICK. Ah, the fun times of youth...heheh...

Pierre rentre chez lui

je parle un peu de francais. un petit, petit peu. mais je t'aime Wayne's World
I like how that site spells schwing! I hope that the DVD has a version dubbed in french...

Mostly what I rememeber from French class was the little film strips that starred Pierre and Mirielle and Pierre's annoying family.. "maman, il y a des gants dans la serviette de Pierre. Ce sont les gants de Pierre?" "Non, ce ne sont pas les gants de Pierre" "Il y a aussi un foulard dans la serviette de Pierre, c'est le foulard de Pierre?" No idea if I am spelling all that right. I can't find this on the web anywhere, which is amazing, cause usually I can find anything under the sun....
