iCantbelievethisshit [08 Oct 2011|12:44am]
David Essman said that a public figure dying is like a snow day for bad editorial cartoonists. If this is true (and it is) then I guess widely-covered disasters are half days. Any time a celebrity dies, I prepare myself for an onslaught of bad to awful tributes full of crying inanimate objects and the same shitty joke set at the Pearly Gates repeated endlessly. So now, after the shocking death of a man with cancer, let's dive right in...
to The Steve Jobs Memorial Cartoon Wall of Laziness.Collapse )

Just in time for the end of nice weather, I got myself a bicycle!

It was made by this guy. He's nice as hell and excessively good at what he does.

Also, my radio show's moved to Wednesday night (technically Thursday morning) at 1:00 am for those of you who give a crap.

I went to the zoo and saw there were a hundred people there just like me. They all wanted to look at entertaining animals and feed the sea lions and give candy to the otters even though they were not supposed to. There were a hundred people not like me, too. The beleaguered parents, wardens of a three-foot radius as their offspring squirmed and squinted in the midday sun. Three hundred children screamed like ten thousand cicadas at their parents, at the heat, at the lack of entertaining elephants and exotic birds. They screamed for sandwiches and ice cream and soda from the vending machines. They screamed for impossibly expensive plastic dinosaurs and stuffed giraffes from the gift shop. They cried and stomped and howled and leaked tears like little broken water mains until they were appeased or shamed into a brooding silence that evaporated into the atmosphere and ruined yet another beautiful spring day.

Oh, right. [31 May 2010|12:54am]
I think you should all listen to my radio show. The first episode was broadcast last week, and it was great. Well, it was great for me at least. It's on 90.3 FM, WZBC every Friday from 3 to 5 pm EST. This is, apparently, the absolute best time slot in the entire lineup and I landed it by pure luck. Way to go, me.

Anyway, if you're outside the Boston area you can listen to it online here:

How many chumps do you take? [14 Apr 2010|05:13pm]
So, uh, the Tea Party Express rolled into Boston today. Sarah Palin spoke, but I was too late to catch that. Predictably, lots of middle-aged white people who love flags showed up to rally against perceived threats of socialism in a public park. Of course, it wouldn't be Boston without a sizable number of creative liberal counter-protests.

Without further adieu, picspam:

Tattoo the Mario [18 Mar 2010|10:09pm]
I'm pretty tired of the cultural fetishization of childhood video games among people in their twenties and early thirties. Recently a friend of mine was talking about how she knows someone who got a Zelda tattoo. The other day I saw someone with a tattoo of Luigi in all his 8-bit glory. Those of you know me know I am not generally a fan of tattoos. Well, I am really not a fan of cultural reference tattoos, and I am especially really not a fan of when those references are video games. Wow, you were a child in the late 80s and/or early 90s and played a lot of Nintendo? NO WAY! Me too! Let me tell you about the fact I did the same thing millions of other people my age did by permanently searing its likeness onto my flesh!

So in the age of Xbox 360, what's next? Will these people spend their mid-life crises modding their motorcycle helmets to look like Master Chief? Will men start sporting goatees and black, thick-framed glasses in order to appear more like Gordon Freeman? Probably not, as they'll likely be spending those years quitely crying themselves to sleep or saving up for another tattoo removal.

Another question that springs to mind: Why limit yourself to video games? There is a whole range of things you and millions of others did as a child that you can co-opt into body art due to your own personal lack of creativity or meaningful symbolism.
"Hey dude, what the hell is that red stripe you have up and down your neck?"
"Oh, that? Well, you know how 'Fruit by the Foot' was totally awesome when we were kids? I got it tattooed onto my side!"
"Yeah! The whole thing unrolls down to my crotch! Am I cool or what?!? NOSTALGIA!!!"

The relentless march and mockery of time. [01 Jan 2010|02:54pm]
New year, new background, blah blah blah.

I rang in 2010... well, actually, I didn't ring in 2010. Last year I led the countdown in a huge apartment filled with dozens of people, this year I fell asleep in bed at 11. I was looking forward to my first New Year's Eve living in Boston, and had been invited to a bunch of different things, but then just as I was getting ready to head out I got punched in the head and stomach by a poltergeist. At least, that's what it felt like. I don't even care, though. I have a lot to look forward to this month. New job, fantastic girl, and all the Oreos I can eat. Oh, and maybe some kind of fitness regimen would be a good idea, too.

I hardly ever update in this thing anymore. Next month I'll have been using this for six(!) years. What the hell?

I'm making a robot costume
And looking for a boy scout uniform
And trying to arrange a 2 minute rave
And assembling a team of black-suited choreographed dancers
All for one Xmas present.

Why Christians Should Love Abortions [23 Sep 2009|05:45pm]
1.Heaven is the ultimate goal of existence. Life on earth is temporary, and merely a proving ground, the reward for which is eternity in heaven.(Matthew 5:12, 6:19-20) The alternative is an eternity of torment in Hell. (Mark 9:43-48)

2. Only a select few people will escape damnation and make it to heaven.(Matthew 7:13-14). Even people who call themselves Christians (even those who perform miracles and drive out demons!) will not live up to the strict standards set by the Lord, and will thus burn in Hell for eternity. (Matthew 7:21-23)

3. Children are innocent, and the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to them. (Matthew 18:3, 19:14) Despite the physical death brought about by original sin, the sinful actions and thoughts of a person condemn them to hell. (Ezekiel 18:17-23). Newborns and fetuses have committed no sinful actions or thoughts which would disqualify them from Heaven.

4. Given premise 3, young children who die or are killed go to heaven.

5. Given premises 2 and 3, if a child is allowed to mature to the age of accountability, the overwhelming odds are that the child will go to Hell when it dies.

6. Although murder is a sin, the Bible say3 that only blaspheming the holy spirit is unforgivable. All other sins may be repented of and forgiven. (Mark 3:28-29)

7. Given 1-6, it is the moral obligation of all Christian women to have an abortion every time they become pregnant, and the Christian men, as the heads of the household and masters women (Colossians 3:18, Ephesians 5:22-25, Titus 2:3-5, 1 Peter 3:1) to ensure she does. This guarantees that any potential offspring avoid damnation and go to Heaven. The parents can then repent and join them in heaven upon their eventual deaths.

Spectacular First World Problems! [23 Sep 2009|04:48am]
The Verizon DSL I recently set up has been giving me a lot of problems over the past few days. I think the connection issues are finally fixed, but this isn't the first time I've thought that. Regardless, the speed is still about half of what we're paying for at best. At worst it's an agonizing crawl. I have made a short short video review regarding the frustrations I've experienced:

Hi again. [18 Sep 2009|11:57pm]
So I finally have my own steady stream of internets going on, and that's great.
I wasn't going to say much besides that, but looking at various Flickr accounts has rekindled my passionate hatred for about 80 or 90 percent of photography majors.

"OOOHH LOOK AT MEEEEE I just took some pictures of myself NAKED because I want to feel sexually liberated/I'm an attention whore but I'm too classy to be in a porno. Oohh and now I took a picture of my cute boyfriend/girlfriend... naked! Oohh we're so DARING for ART. Wow hey I just took some pictures with a FISH-EYE LENS. Isn't that CRAZY? I took a picture of a MAN in WOMEN'S CLOTHES isn't that just so ARTISTIC and SILLY?? Aren't men who wear dresses just SO SILLY? Now I'm going to dress up my friends like Alice in Wonderland characters and take craaazy pictures of them because if there's one motif that hasn't been done to death it's Alice in fucking Wonderland. I have to make sure to use either a really new and expensive camera or a really old/shitty camera because it's not composition and imagination that determines the worth of a photograph, it's what kind of film it's printed on!"

Honestly, fuck off.

So as a few of you know, I went to a health care town hall to listen to and hopefully ask a question of John Kerry.

The Closest Thing I Will Ever Have To A Son [14 Aug 2009|08:21pm]
A few weeks ago, a snail climbed up to my third floor balcony and decided to stay. I named him William H. Macy (there is a perfectly reasonable yet horrible explanation for this) and gave him a home in the form of a potato growing in a cardboard box full of dirt.

The original run time of this footage before I sped it up clocked in at around eight minutes.
