Survival is all about the tools.

This here orangutan is doing something that you never seen before. Well maybe you never seen it. You could project back to the days of yor and get in touch with your Darwinian past. But most people are in denial about that. Anywho, these orangs are great at imitating people. So when they saw the local fishermen fishing with the pike, they said, "hmmmm, dude might be on to something with that.". And so it began, that spark of imagination clicked and it was on. Cause when you get down to it, no matter the scale of possibility, the height of imagination, or the waning minutes of day, man - nay humans are really only going to live as long as the tools we create and use keep us in the game. And even on a basic level, this orang saw that and is learning from example. Which is basically the best thing you can give another person or primate, example. Now sit at your desk and wax philosophical about our cultural anthropology to the cubicle next to you. Go ahead, it'll be different and fun.

The Dark Knight

Alright peeps. The summer movie session is about to kick it. Now I don't watch movies like I used to, I used to be a real theater rat. I would sometime check out 3 movies in a single day. Yeah, I really had no life before my wife. Anyway I do manage to get out when I think a movie is special enough to go to the theater to watch. The Indy 4 flick will be such a movie. So will anything in this new Batman series. Batman is one of the comics I grew up on. It was the first I read consistently. I wasn't into Superman cause he never got beat. Batman was a real dude, he just had money. The monthly comic was good, but what really got me involved in Batman was the graphic novels that came out in the 80's and 90's. Dark and gritty stuff. Batman Year One, The Dark Knight Returns (pictured above), Arkham Asylum just to name a few. Hell even the collections like The Greatest Batman Stories Ever Told kicked ass. So when I saw the first Bale Batman flick, I was pretty freakin excited by it. It is the closest story and version that I identify with when it comes to Batman. And just so you know how I feel, fuck Robin. Unless your talking Dick Greyson, the others just sucked. Although the twist in The Dark Knight Returns is really surprising and good. Go read it. So that gets me around to what is going on with this new installment in the Batman saga. What a freakin shame Mr. Ledger checked off the planet. Cause his Joker is spot freakin on. Sorry Jack but this kid makes your shit look frumpy and tired. And I haven't

even seen the flick yet. Just the pictures of Ledger's work tell me enough that this Joker will be true to form. Good work. What a way to go out. Reminds me of Brandon Lee in The Crow.

And I noticed that there are some pictures of Harvey Dent. Looks like ol Two Face will be making a come back. The new direction has some of the better bad guys in it. You would have never seen the Scarecrow in the old stuff. Remember Mr. Freeze? Nuff said. Anyway I am excited.

Check out this link for some nice pics.

Justice, nature style.

CANOE -- CNEWS - Weird News: Croc kills man accused of illegal logging

Where is your sense of the past? Help find your sense of what was.

I tell you we know nothing of our past. It has all been washed away by our egos and imaginations. Sometimes its more dramatic, like when religion dictates we were created out of thin air 5000 years ago. Now thats trippin. But there is some shit going down in the area of northern Syria. In the past 5 years, there has been some nice pieces of the puzzle of who we are. What brought carved us into a civilized world. The evidence that humans could do more than survive, they could create. And create we did. But I get off track. This article is of a man who has found an interesting site that dates to 9500 bc. Plenty of carvings of animals like boars, lions, and what not. Evidence man could dream also exists. They found images of half man half lion. And just like the man says, thats the Sphinx hundreds of years before it was made. Once there is enough evidence there was civilized and organized interactions between different groups of humans for mutual benefit, the notion that we owe our humanity to the rise of agriculture will get kicked to the curb. Read the article. Sounds like the end of paradise.
Turkish site a Neolithic 'supernova' - - Breaking News, Political News & National Security News - The Washington Times

Every now and again you read some good stuff over at Daily Kos. Looks like John Ashcroft got served.

Check out this q & a fellow Koassack got off on to John Ashcroft. Dude got served.

ME: First off, Mr. Ashcroft, I'd like to apologize for the rudeness of some of my fellow students. It was uncalled for--we can disagree civilly, we don't need that. (round of applause from the audience, and Ashcroft smiles) I have here in my hand two documents. One of them, you know, is the text of the United Nations Convention against Torture, which, point of interest, says nothing about "lasting physical damage"...

ASHCROFT: (interrupting) Do you have the Senate reservations to it?

ME: No, I don't. Do you happen to know what they are?

ASHCROFT: (angrily)I don't have them memorized, no. I don't have time to go around memorizing random legal facts. I just don't want these people in the audience to go away saying, "He was wrong, she had the proof right in her hand!" Because that's not true. It's a lie. If you don't have the reservations, you don't have anything. Now, if you want to bring them another time, we can talk, but...

ME: Actually, Mr. Ashcroft, my question was about this other document. (laughter and applause) This other document is a section from the judgment of the Tokyo War Tribunal. After WWII, the Tokyo Tribunal was basically the Nuremberg Trials for Japan. Many Japanese leaders were put on trial for war crimes and crimes against humanity, including torture. And among the tortures listed was the "water treatment," which we nowadays call waterboarding...

ASHCROFT: (interrupting) This is a speech, not a question. I don't mind, but it's not a question.

ME: It will be, sir, just give me a moment. The judgment describes this water treatment, and I quote, "the victim was bound or otherwise secured in a prone position; and water was forced through his mouth and nostrils into his lungs and stomach." One man, Yukio Asano, was sentenced to fifteen years hard labor by the allies for waterboarding American troops to obtain information. Since Yukio Asano was trying to get information to help defend his country--exactly what you, Mr. Ashcroft, say is acceptible for Americans to do--do you believe that his sentence was unjust?(boisterous applause and shouts of "Good question!")

ASHCROFT: (angrily)Now, listen here. You're comparing apples and oranges, apples and oranges. We don't do anything like what you described.

ME: I'm sorry, I was under the impression that we still use the method of putting a cloth over someone's face and pouring water down their throat...

ASHCROFT: (interrupting, red-faced, shouting) Pouring! Pouring! Did you hear what she said? "Putting a cloth over someone's face and pouring water on them." That's not what you said before! Read that again, what you said before!

ME: Sir, other reports of the time say...

ASHCROFT: (shouting) Read what you said before! (cries of "Answer her fucking question!" from the audience) Read it!

ME: (firmly)Mr. Ashcroft, please answer the question.

ASHCROFT: (shouting) Read it back!

ME: "The victim was bound or otherwise secured in a prone position; and water was forced through his mouth and nostrils into his lungs and stomach."

ASHCROFT: (shouting) You hear that? You hear it? "Forced!" If you can't tell the difference between forcing and pouring...does this college have an anatomy class? If you can't tell the difference between forcing and pouring...

ME: (firmly and loudly) Mr. Ashcroft, do you believe that Yukio Asano's sentence was unjust? Answer the question. (pause)

ASHCROFT: (more restrained) It's not a fair question; there's no comparison. Next question! (loud chorus of boos from the audience)

Freaking sweet. Link to full article with pics here. Its a pretty good read.

Impressionism Art.

Sorry I have slacked on my impressionism posts of late, but I think you will like this one.

This here is "Rivage de Portrieux, Cotes-du-Nord" by Eugene Boudin. More than likely you never heard of him. Then again if you get into your artists, maybe you have. Then again, this is why this is here because now you know. Follow that? Better read it again. And all of you Europeans that visit this blog for the witty comments and killa art, sorry to tie you up in verbal knots. Anywho I like Boudin for the simple reason he was the master of the seascape. He was the marine painter. THE man when it comes to showing off the beauty of that narrow stretch of earth where sea meets land. So get up on this painting and look at the beauty, the detail of the strokes. The brilliance of the greens. The killa way he paints the sky. I love this guy. You should too.

Quotes from people you should know...

"When peoples care for you and cry for you, they can straighten out your soul."

Pittsburgh Penguins - Recap: Pittsburgh @ Ottawa - 04/16/2008

Pittsburgh Penguins - Recap: Pittsburgh @ Ottawa - 04/16/2008 Sweet. I wish I could have watched it instead of listening to it on the web. At least I got to listen, I shouldn't complain I guess.

No Mind.

One way of meditation practice is consistently cutting off random,
irrelevant thoughts, thereby protecting yourself from delusions. As
soon as one thought arises you must destroy it immediately by being
attentively alert. After random, irrelevant thought has been alertly
destroyed, subsequent associations will not arise. Do not even utilize
the insights gained by this alertness, because being unconcerned with
both random, irrelevant thought and attentive alertness is called

I loves me some Zen. I used to sit on a bench at SU and watch the hotties walk by. I figured
if I could get rid of them random thoughts, I would be a Zen master. I really don't know
if it worked.

Subtlety and zen.

"Entering the forest he moves not the grass;

Entering the water he makes not a ripple." Zenrin KushĂ» (The Way of Zen 152, 224)

In essence, the zero effect. To interject in a situation yourself, cause no ripples to effect that situation, and help in someway if possible. But its hard. Feelings, opinions are a bitty to keep objective. That is the daily struggle...

Observations from space...

The MRO has given us this killa color photo of Phobos, a small moon around Mars. Full story here on the NASA website. Color 3d gives up better details. Like whats that shiny stuff? Some one get on that and find out what it is and if there is any money in it. I have plans for an intergalactic mining operation and this could be the next project after mining our moon for Helium 3. Think I am talking crazy? Then you don't know dude...grow your knowledge.

Observations on the cell phone.

A forward observation on the cell phone.
First, the cell phone is dead. No one who uses a cell phone rarely uses it as a phone. They text, pic, email, game, or maybe just maybe place a call on it. Hell I don't even have a cell phone.
I got a pocket pc. The damn thing is a computer first. For email, can't beat it. Text? Please. Pretty damn inconvenient to make a call on that device. But thats the way that these devices are going. They are not really phones anymore. They are about to evolve into hand held multi media devices. Like the tricorder from Star Trek. So check out this concept phone. Its coming, so get ready for it.

Poets. Robert Frost.

A Time to Talk
by Robert Frost

When a friend calls to me from the road
And slows his horse to a meaning walk,
I don't stand still and look around
On all the hills I haven't hoed,
And shout from where I am, 'What is it?'
No, not as there is a time talk.
I thrust my hoe in the mellow ground,
Blade-end up and five feet tall,
And plod: I go up to the stone wall
For a friendly visit.

When I get all hyped over something, to calm myself I go back to the poems. Especially Robert Frost. Dude just reaches me. Enjoy.

Fernando Guerrero Got Game.

I got this off of the sweet science website.
In the other showcase, Dominican-born Fernando Guerrero scored a fourth round TKO over Valentino Jalomo to move his undefeated record to 5-0 with five knockouts.

The powerful Guerrero showed immediately that he was both stronger and better skilled than Jalomo (2-2-1). Guerrero landed straight, compact counters at will against Jalomo, scoring two standing-eight counts in the first round.

In the second and third, Guerrero continued to land an alarming number of clean punches to Jalomo's head, including several straight lefts that tested the elasticity of Jalomo's neck. Eventually, the question was whether Jalomo's chin was better than his record indicated, or if Guerrero's power was less intimidating than his stats led on.

Finally, in the fourth round, a volley of clean, unanswered power shots by Guerrero prompted another standing-eight, and a follow-up flurry ended matters at 1:18 of the fourth round. The exciting performance by Fernando Guerrero won the hearts of the fans in attendance, and likely gave the fans at home the impression that he is someone on which they should keep a careful eye.

I remember the first time I watched this kid train. He was 14. That was 7 years ago and I only saw him a handful of times in the gym. I told my wife then that he was going to be a boxer that everyone around here would know. Kids got power, speed, and you should see his foot work in person. You see talent at a young age a lot of times and wonder if they will make it. There was no doubt about Fernando. Dude has made game. His brother is pretty good too, but he like to run the ladies to much to take boxing serious. Dude was always chasin tail in the gym. Fernando was always working out. Anyway he dominated that fight last night. That right hook of his is freakin vicious. Fast and lots of pop. He was fuckin that dude up and I am glad for him that the fight was stopped cause he would have got hurt. I am so ready to get excited about boxing again. Thank you Fernando for waking some of us to the sweet science again. Congrats on the win. Impressive.

Joe Albero. Bully.

(For all blogger not local to my area, this will be disturbing, cause you aint read stuff like this before from me. Sorry to dissapoint, but somethings must be said.)

There are few things on this planet as disgusting as the human being known as Joe Albero. If you want to see why I say that, visit this blog and read. The poorly written prose will eventually slap you senseless and you will have to walk away from it. If you let yourself get involved with this knucklehead, he will come after you. For no other reason than you disagree with him. Joe boy there has a little money, trust me he aint rich by even nuevo rich standards. But he has enough money to corrupt himself. See Joe Albero is a big fat fucktard. Not because of the way he looks. But because of his shitty attitude towards others who don't share his point of view. See if you disagree with Jo the fucktard, he believes it is his right to find out who you are and sue you. He feels because of his wealth he has the right to destroy anyone who can't outspend his ass in court. The opposing views of other local Delmarva bloggers has fucked with him so much, he has taken to hiring a hacker to find out who all these online personalities are. SO here he comes with his threats of lawsuits, the FBI, Ruark, Mike Lewis, etc. Hey Jo you big fat nutlicker, you may be able to buy justice from your pocket, but out here in the street, justice aint blind. After you got your jollies off by threating people for using their right of freedom of speech, I got to thinking about it and you know what I said to myself? Fuck him. Fuck you Jo. I see you got slapped pretty hard in court today. No cloak of immunity. You gonna roll over and fuck all those sources you brag about? If you lie, thats perjury bitch. Anyway fuck you and the horse you rode in on. I will write what I want when I want and how I want. Come and shut me up. I don't really harp on your ugly fat ass anymore mostly cause my boy Jim Rapp left the zoo for a fabulous job. And by the way, Jim is so fuckin happy, it brings tears to his eyes. When we were drinkin beers the other night on his porch, I cracked a joke about you and he laughed. And laughed and laughed. You will be pleased to know he doesn't even read your shit anymore. Unlike you, he got over it. Of course, we know why you can't get over it, but thats personal and I aint going there. You might sue me. I am quakin in my boots. Find out who I am. Just a poor ghetto snipe with nothing to lose. Spend your kids future on this dumb shit. You are so fucking stupid. Let me say that again. You are sooooo fucking stupid.

Here is something you heard before. Wrath, Envy, Pride are all sins. You will burn in hell for what you done already. If you change your ways, repent, and serve Christ, maybe just maybe you can save the wretched soul of yours. I doubt it. And if your thinkin I'm going to hell, you got another thing coming. God don't send people to hell for cussing. I dont see that in the sins anywhere. Oh yeah one last fuck you shithead before I am out.

Coming soon: superfast internet - Times Online

Coming soon: superfast internet - Times Online

This will change a lot. A lot. More than you can imagine. Trust me.

I miss Skidrow.

You know these guys. Why? I don't know. The music just takes me back to a time when my body knows I truly didn't give a fuck. Sometimes its nice to revisit that shit and get some of that energy back. Still I wouldn't trade where I am at now to do it all over again. I have no idea why people would want to live high school over again. You ever hear those people? Always talking smack from shit that happened like 20 some years ago? Let it go already. Anyway there was a time when I wouldn't be caught dead listening to the sounds of Skidrow, Cinderella, Winger, the Crew, etc. Now I play that stuff at my desk at work. It makes me productive. I can't stand the pop crap they play on the company radio. I never was a fan of Celine Dion, and after being forced to listen to 4 of her songs, sometimes the same song 4 times a day for 5 days a week, for the last 5 years, well lets just say I had my fill.

Ok, this has become my Oriole image of the year. When you see this, expect some O's ramble. So thats where I am with that. Dude the O's are 5-1 and on top of the AL East and have the best record in the AL. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA Baseball world. No one would have put money on that 2 weeks ago. Yeah it will not last, but so far I love watching these guys play. They have no quit in them. They have come back to win 3 games I can think of and have won 2 one run games so far. They sucked at one run games last year. Congrats for getting off on a good start Mr. Trembly. Master of Education, which he has you know, a MA in Edu. Killa huh? A real teacher teaching. Good stuff huh? I love it cause my Penguins have a home grown coach too. Keepin it in house!

Yeah I watched Kansas win last night. It was a good game. Great athletes. Kansas has an over the top game that is killa good. Sasha Kaun had a some great looking alley oops. I liked Memphis before the game. I thought they were more athletic, but Kansas came ready to play. Bill Self has made himself a tiny dynasty out there in Kansas. More of the North Carolina tree there. The two things I will take away from this tournament is Dickie V getting into the HOF. Did you see that man break down? It great to see Vitale get in cause he deserves it. I love Dickie V baby! And the other thing that I really really enjoyed was the commentary from Bobby Knight on ESPN. Straight up loved how he worked it on ESPN. With most network analysts, you get a feeling like they are holding back or have some compromise as to what they are saying. Not with Knight. The first day he showed up in a sweat shirt and didn't wear a suit. He said the hell with that. And thats why I like they guy. You feel what he says and does is what he really says and does. No layers, no bs, no one elses opinion except his. I hope Bobby Knight does 10 years of broadcasting or analyst work. I admit I have a different opinion completely after watching him this year.

Alright people, I got some Ratt kickin on the yahoo radio. I only got 900 ratings to go before I top 5000. Then I will be a fanatic.

On this Monday, I was standin in the shower thinkin....

seriously, that is where I get a majority of the ideas I have for green tinkerings. It all starts with the fact when you get a steamy shower and then sit down in the falling water, its probably the cleanest air you will breath all day. See the heavy amounts of water in the air grab dirt and dust particles and wash the shit right down the drain. So I always make a point to take a breather in the shower. And think, think, think. Sometimes I sleep sleep sleep. Which is another story all together. The other place I always get smacked by the inspiration bug is when I am driving. Especially poetry. or inventions. This sucks cause I will pull over and write or sketch that shit out. Not a good thing when your job is delivering pizza. Which brings me to this little gizmo above. How cool is that? This is a concept design by Cario. I don't know if this is a good idea or not. I know I would not be looking at the road. Maybe this could be brought to play when cars can drive themselves. You know that shit is coming. Don't even play like it ain't.

But back to my shower thinkin. You know what was on my mind? How freakin cool is it the Orioles are on top of the AL East? Yeah its only 5 games into the season, but we are in first place right now. And I was watchin that game Sunday. This aint the only time they came back this year. They came back from 3 down twice to win that one Rays game. These birds got some fight in them. Young, scrappy, and don't have shit to lose. I don't care what people think, it is going to be fun to watch these O's grow.

So I was trippin through the blogger profiles and found a new blog to read. She writes at blahgblahgblahg. She has all the things I like in a blogger: consistent, does it for herself, and has something she believes in. kayly here is as hard core a dem as i have ever seen, next to my wife, so if you want to read from someone who lives what they believe, here it is.

Alright amigos, I got to go. I have been slackin on my reading today. Peace.

Bond update

Alright, the shoot is going well and it looks like the movie will roll out on Nov 7th as planned. I must say I am intrigued about this 22nd edition to the Bond collection. See its the first movie that picks up minutes after the last movie ended. All the other Bond stories are stand alone deals. That means they are going to build on that tearing down the man, broken heart, betrayal angle. Sounds great I know. Plus Craig is the shit. I think he will be the best Bond ever. The man looks like a killer and that is what Bond is. Its cool he the one they choose to explore the humanity of Bond with because in truth I don't think the other Bonds could have pulled that range of emotion off. Yeah its all fucked when you are talking about the emotional value of the next James Bond film. Oh blood hell, just remember that the 4th Indiana Jones movie comes out May 22nd.

FBI tracked King's every move.

No wonder people, especially black people, are suspicious of the FBI. Hell I just got a case file opened on my ass for writing that. Don't believe me? In a matter of minutes, maybe seconds a data mining program will sweep the internet looking for new data containing "trigger" words. You konw words like terror, Osama, Black Panthers, Tibet, communist, area 51, spying, you get the idea. Well that program will evaluate this bit of writing for priority. Goes to a case handler. They may come here and read a few posts. (Hello fbi guys and girls! Is you job anything like that show Bones? Just wondering.) Anyway at that point they will determine what next, drop the file or monitor for activity. If determined priority, all of your computers will be traced for reading this. Files will be opened, determinations made by what you write, decisions made. Spooked yet? Should be. Read the article. That was over 40 years ago with limited technology. They don't have to break into your home to bug it now. Crap my computer just blinked. I think it may have been compromised from a remote location.

FBI tracked King's every move -

The Penguins are Atlantic Division Champs. And the Orioles rock too.

This is freaking sweet. Hey we got the division wrapped up and these bad ass Penguins could get the East before its all over. I had the incredible luxury of watching the Penguins/Flyers game in HD last night while flipping back to the O's game. I really love this time of year. Playoff hockey, start of baseball, the final four, and to an extent the NBA gets some of my attention. But back to this Penguins game. It was a hard fought game. I saw a bunch of hits. Its nice to see these Penguins take a punch and give a punch. I like it. Tough.
And speaking of tough, Marc-Andre Fleury. This kid is killa good. Hes got a great glove hand and he is fast. That shot he stopped past the halfway point of the 3rd period was clutch. It was like slap, pow , catch. Even in HD that shit was hard to see. I was all up off the couch and pumpin the fists and shit. Then a slight commercial break and I was flippin to the O's. I got to see Aubrey Huff come up in the 8th and smack that triple to drive in 2 and put the O's up by one. I was pretty damn psyched about that. Thats when I thought this was a good time to drink a beer or two. So I head out to the shop and see what I got in the shop frig. A Guinness Stout. Good to go. I run back in and see they got Fahey at bat so I flip back to the Penguins game. I mean they are about to clinch their first division title in like ten years, hell two years ago they were the 2nd worst team in the freakin league. Now we got our 6th division title yo!
Thanks a bunch Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. You guys kick some ass. I grew up watching a Mario, Jagr, and Stevens line put up huge O-fence numbers. I really never thought the Penguins would ever have that kind of punch again. Some teams never seem to capture that kind of talent again. Islanders anyone? Edmonton anyone? Philly anyone? I mean those cats had some serious talent and some great history and you don't see them tearing up the headlines anymore. Its just really satisfying watching these guys go from last to first in two years. He don't forget our coach, Michel Therrien. This guy wins where ever he goes. Always has. I love the fact he was our minor league coach, came up to the show and kicked into another gear. And thats why I want there to be success with my O's. I see Dave Trembly much the same way. He didn't come all the way up through the O's farm system, but he was there. Keepin it in house baby, homegrown pride! Anyway it was a rare great sports night up in my crib. I got to watch the O's come back from 3 down twice and win and watch the Penguins wrap up a division title. Good stuff.
