Bill Murray story

It was a late winter night, a few months ago. i was walking down HIguerra street in San Luis Obispo. I had just left Boo Boo Records and was reciting a song silently to myself. "Aint no nigga like the one I got, no one can fuck you betta, sleeps around but he gives me a lo-what the?" when suddenly, i felt someone behind me, they removed my headphones and i felt their hands over my eyes. When I turned in surprise, there was Bill Murray, his creased face leaning in close. Bill whispered "No one is ever going to believe you", and then just walked away.

Can shoes be vegan?

What kinda stupid question is that? HELL YES!

I was shopping for shoes and while i was debating wether i should purchase the black canvas shoes vs the running shoes when i noticed this odd logo printed on the shoe. The shoes were both Macbeth but above the Macbeth logo was a green wide V. Turns out it was a vegan shoe.

Further searching turned out that Macbeth Footwear is owned by Tom DeLonge of disbanded Blink-182 and sell vegan and organic products. Going in deeper i found MooShoes, a shop in Manhattan that sells vegan products online and support no kill animal shelters. Pretty neat, i guess. But you know, whatever.

Please. Won't you stay, and watch with me?

Early in the 21st Century, THE TYRELL

CORPORATION advanced Robot evolution

into the NEXUS phase — a being virtually

identical to a human — known as a Replicant.

The NEXUS 6 Replicants were superior

in strength and agility, and at least equal

in intelligence, to the genetic engineers

who created them.

Replicants were used Off-world as

slave labor, in the hazardous exploration and

colonization of other planets.

After a bloody mutiny by a NEXUS 6

combat team in an Off-world colony,

Replicants were declared illegal

on earth — under penalty of death.

Special police squads — BLADE RUNNER

UNITS — had orders to shoot to kill, upon

detection, any trespassing Replicant.

This was not called execution.

It was called retirement.


Stop right there, fiend!


[[This isn't to change your mind. It is intended to inform.]]

A real world example of supply and demand that once again involves a developing or a poor nation. In West Africa there is a lack of police force to keep people in check by enforcing a limit on what one boat can catch:

"The skippers of the illegal fishing boats tend to favour the waters of some of the poorest nations, which are often inadequately policed as a result of a lack of resources...For centuries, the waters have supported generations of small coastal communities, but as the world's appetite for fish continues to grow, the rich fishing grounds have attracted the attention of illegal vessels".

Oh Shi-

I'm not completely sure how they manage to sell $9 bn worth of fish a year without seeming... fishy. I read from the website [] that in Orange Valley, i believe located in Spain, they go through the "backdoor" of ports and sell off their load to stores, vendors and on the street for half the price with the local people knowing full well what's going on. They may be scared to speak out or it can also be the lack of authoritah. It turns out that their leaders do know what's going on but due to no evidence they cannot act. But, it turns out that these fisherman are paying the port owners a little something on the side to unload their cargo.

The increase of illegal fishing can be tied to the increase of fish consumption. It's much like the increase of meat consumption which can be linked to the increase of deforestation. To help with deforestation nations have taken on consuming and buying more coffee product. Coffee purchased from developing nations, such as Brazil, help decrease deforestation because less trees are cut down to make room for cattle and more native coffee bean plants are planted. People flock to where the money is. So if less fish is consumed we can therefore decrease the practice of illegal fishing and over fishing.

Some ways to do so are to limit your fish intake or if you want to go full force, try becoming vegetarian. I've tried being a vegetarian for a long while and constantly had near slips. Yes it is difficult but so is walking. Once you master it you become a natural. But you know, whatever.

The Greatest YouTube Channel to ever be conceived

Updated: (Go read his channel comments xD)

This man has 6,112 videos of himself smoking a pipe.

His name is Conrad. He is a man of legend for his grand kindness. He is said to have slayed the jabberwock with a single swift vlask of his grand ololo saving the town of the Joos. After chewing his gum he gives the piece a proper burial. He is said to be able to make the coldest hearts melt and then cry with a single twinkle of his eye. The FBI often question him as he sits on his porch puffing a pipe, just because they find him interesting. He’s a lover, not a fighter, but he’s also a fighter, so don’t get any ideas. He was once shot in the chest by accident. He didn't die, he politely asked the bullet to come out, then he tucked it into bed and kissed it good-night. His macaroni pictures from preschool hang in the Galleria dell'Accademia, right next to David. His cereal never gets soggy. It sits there, staying crispy, just for him. He donated his kidneys 3 times. His pillow talk with Maria Mayer resulted in one of the most important discoveries in molecular science. He once brought a puppy back to life just by smiling. He is Conrad.

Follow us. FREEEEDOMM!!!

Lily Chou Chou


Isn't it nice to learn something you kinda knew about but then it gets stretched further when you find out what you knew about that something wasn't the whole story? I heard of the dream pop album Breathe by Lilly Chou Chou, who i believed was a real musician, but turns out it's a fictional person from a Japanese film called All About Lily Chou Chou. If i can find it online i'll post IT. Here's the opening sequence from the film taken from YouTube in the meantime:

this was the best i could do. . you can also watch the film on youtube with bad quality

Awesome find is awesome

Did you ever think that you would ever be able to play a game by watching YouTube videos? Patrick Bolvin pioneered this with his interactive Street Fighter videos. You play by clicking links strategically placed and timed on his videos. Each link takes you to a video and after about 4 you either win or lose. It's not terribly exciting but the idea is very clever.

Heartless Bastard

A boy films himself beating his pet cat in his bathroom and then humiliates it for laughs.

From what i got this kid videotaped himself abusing a cat on Stickam and later uploaded the video to YouTube on Saturday. By Sunday bloggers were able to find all his information and called the authorities and news in his county. He is being investigated and will likely be charged as an adult on charges of animal cruelty.

I cannot tolerate these people who think of living beings who cannot speak as replaceable like cannon fodder. You take up the responsibility of watching over these creatures if you house them and to abuse of them is just satanic. I seriously do not care if this guy gets hit by a bus crossing the street and dragged 30 feet only to survive and live the rest of his life in comatose. He's trash in my eyes.

He was only caught because he posted his actions on the internet for tens of thousands to see and will now be made an example of. This will most likely not affect those who do the same but don't post it. But it's still good that he will be punished. Here's the story from his county news:

"Lawton_In a disgusting case of animal abuse, a cat being abused was filmed by the culprits and posted on YouTube. A teenaged boy slammed a cat against a wall and repeatedly struck it. It was a hot topic on the internet all day Sunday and bloggers think it happened in Lawton.

Among the thousands of posts on the internet, commenters pointed to Lawton as the source after it was posted this weekend. The user name and information, along with other information on the internet pointed to a teen here in Texoma. Posts from all over to country asked people to call 7News, and plenty did. Due to it's graphic nature, much of the video was edited for this story.

The teenager - who calls himself "Timmy" entered a bathroom that he called his laboratory. Inside the shower was a cat which the boy picked up by its neck and slammed against the wall and floor before beating it with his fists. The attack continued for more than a minute.

YouTube removed the video Sunday afternoon and disabled the user's account - but not before it was seen about 30,000 times. Local authorities confirm that they are investigating the video, and Lawton Police say the Comanche County Sheriff's Department is investigating. Sheriff Kenny Stradley has been shown the video."

Shock and Awe

I asked some online buddies to recommend me a book. My expectations were low because of their sense of humor and random comments, but HOT DAMN, (this is my jam Keep me partying till the A.M.). The list below is what was submitted without editing, as i copy pasted it. I am unable to choose because everyone feels their recommendation is the best for me, so, i want to write one title down on an individual slip of paper, place them all in a hat, and pick at random; unless someone out there has an idea(?)

For Science

February 12th marks Charles Darwin's 200th birthday. Cheers! He has taught us one important thing: The strong shall devour the meek's reward. 

Whenever i get a package of plain M&Ms, i make it my duty to continue the strength and robustness of the candy as a species. To this end, i held M&M duels. Taking two candies between my thumb and forefinger, i apply pressure, squeezing them together until one of them cracks and splinters. That is the "loser" (like my pet rabbit), and i eat the inferior one immediately. The winner gets to go another round. I have found that, in general, the brown and red M&Ms are tougher, and the newer blue ones are genetically inferior. I have hypothesized that blue M&Ms as a race cannot survive long in the intense theatre of competition that is the modern candy and snack-food world.

Occasionally i will get a mutation, a candy that is misshaped, or pointier, or flatter than the rest. Almost invariably this proves to be a weakness, but on the very rare occasions it gives the candy extra strength in this way, the species continues to adapt to it's environment.

When i reach the end of the pack, i am left with one M&M, the strongest of the herd. Since it would make no sense to eat this one as well, i pack it neatly in an envelope and send it to:

M&M Mars, A Division of Mars, Inc.
Hackettstown, NJ
17840-1503 U.S.A.

along with a 3x5 card with the words "Please use this M&M for breeding purposes." printed on it.

I expect grant money and with this i shall continue my hypothesis with experiments and studies. I shall have a grand tournament. From a field of hundreds, we will discover the True Champion. There can be only one.

Hip Hop = Literary Art

"Dear Sirs
If the pavement comes alive on Flatbush Ave with toothy smiles
Comprised of traffic cones and manholes become eyes
And birds burst into flames while singing Satan's praises
And fold into the sky and rain down ashy danger

If every office empties and all slaves walk in dazes
To a pool of liquid money where they bathe blissfully naked
And drugs no longer taunt me and flooze around my conscience
And every woman beating rapist is securely in their coffins

If every open hydrant in a Brooklyn time summer moment
Is opened up by cops and folds out into an ocean
And rent is paid by bread literally and parking isn't paid for
And food stamps can be planted and childhoods can't be damaged

If fire could power space ships that safely ship the creators
Of dynamite and gun powder to the graves of all who faced it
And the slurping nerf of beauracrat life and bean coutning slave owners
Is twisted in on itself til they shave off their own faces

If all the coke and crack in the nation is collected in a top hat
And force fed to the children of every CIA agent
And dust heads get an angel and an acres worth of rainbow
And the projects turn to clouds and the stupid aren't so proud

And the snivelling grimace mongrels of infected money slobbing pesticrats ignite
into a brilliant beam of light
And mercy is the rule
And the exception's mercy too
And the desert comes in Brooklyn and the President goes to school

Time flows in reverse
Death becomes my birth
Me fighting in your war is still, by a large margin
The least likely thing that will ever fucking happen...ever"

- El-P

Unique thoughts? No. angry people think alike.

Do not judge by appearances; a rich heart may be under a poor coat.

From a user on a message board:

You are going to like this. True story. It was the end of 8th grade, and my best friend threw a little party because his parents were away for a couple days. What kind of party can a 8th grader throw, you know? So only about 7 people showed up. 6 dudes...1 girl.

Just as you would expect, some crazy shit happened. This girl was a freak, but hot as hell. She would always have that seductive look on her face... the kind that gets you aroused just by looking at her. We were all good friends in school, but never really chilled outside of it. We were all about 14, and really sexually inexperienced. This girl however, has fucked at least 20 different guys. From the moment she walked in the house, we could tell what she wanted.

Lost in her desire, she began to grind up on the host. They made out for about 10 mins, but this girl wanted more. She made us all go into the host's room, and play a modified version of spin the bottle. Basically, instead of just making out, she would decide what to do with the guy. At first we were shy, but pretty soon we all started to jack off while the girl did whatever she pleased.

The situation quickly escalated. She was getting fucked in turns, by 3 different guys, fighting over her pussy like the kids that they were. I would've joined them, but then she waved me to come over. My dick was probably the hardest its ever been. Sticking straight out, and pulsating; I felt like it was gonna explode. To my surprise, she grabbed it and just stuck it in her mouth without warning. I had never had my dick sucked before, but let me tell you, it was amazing.

Game as it was, I was ready to cum in seconds. I didn't know what to do, so I asked her where I should blow my load. And at that moment, she said something I will never forget. She turned to me and said, "read the first word of each paragraph."

My 25 pennies

(1) I love to sketch, paint, scribble, but i only do so when i see fit. The stars have to be just right or I don't feel like what i've done is of importance or worth.

(2) Sometimes when i eat i imagine myself as the cookie monster and mentally say "Nom! Nom! Nom!" as i chew

(3) I don't cry easily but some things hit the chord just right. When i was an adolescent the song "Here She Comes" by Slowdive brought a tear to my eye, i'll admit. The films Pan's Labyrinth, Atonement, and the youtube video where the hell is matt? also. Images of children in pain too. You just have to have apathy and pay all due respects to truly feel.

(4) As a kid i would collect snails and imagined myself riding on their shells up trees, escaping rain, and hiding in bushes. Slimy creatures. 

(5) Sleep is a love hate thing for me. The dreams i have feel so real that the moment i spontaneously wake up from one i believe myself to be in which ever world i was in. Maybe the world is a dream and i simply haven't waken yet. Scary thought.

(6) I take pride in the music i listen to.  Like how i am with people, I listen to anything and everything with an open mind  and without prejudice. I will admit though i joke about race sometimes. ooo, bad bad. The only thing i haven't liked was the album The Effects of 333 by my favorite band, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. That was the first time i said "The Fucks This Shit?"

(7) I have posted nude pictures of myself on the internet, anonymously, after playing a game of roulette on a message board.

(8) The government is just another kingdom that pigs on its peoples taxes. What change is this? And after the American Revolution. The first settlers escaped England to find religious freedom. Then the founding fathers declared a separation between church and state yet the majority of voters are christian and elect a Christian president. and so on and so forth.

(9) One day i inhaled laced cannabis with a hippie and we listened to CoFlow. That day i fully understood hip hop, not as music but as art.

(10) I believe people who spend all their time acquiring knowledge for the sake of knowledge will never grasp the concept of joy, only a false idea of it because they can only apply their learning to their own thoughts and arguments. They hear a bird and think "what kind of bird is it?" and ponder while another may think "he's singing because it's a Tuesday".

(11) Many times i lose myself in thoughts for hours. I think of things that have no importance. I wish to one day think so well that i solve the problem of the Earth and life's enigma.

(12) I change my choice in reading material usually every month. Some included proverbs, american poetry, horror stories etc 

(13) I'm not the biggest religious person in the world. I sometimes say i believe in God when in fact i'm not fully convinced so as to please people. Naturally, the closest thing i can relate to is Taoist. The stories tied with this teaching fascinate me. One example is of the man who tried to escape his shadow and foot prints in the sand.

(14) One of my problems, if seen that way, is i tend to speak the truth or state the obvious. If i think you're acting annoying i'll tell you. This doesn't happen all the time only if i know you well enough or i'm short fussed that day.

(15) I was vegetarian for a short while. Possibly 3 months. The first thing i ate was a big fat cow tongue taco one of my best friends mothers made.

(16) I want there to be a revolution in my lifetime but am only willing to join if it's a strong enough group. Then i think that we are all too cowardly as a people to start anything, like a frill lizard.

(17)  Sometimes i daydream of what it would be like to live in another country, usually a rural one, but also cities, through a first person point of view. Another regular daydream is of myself playing covers of my favorite songs in front of an audience

(18) I believe in reincarnation because there's no way we live life once through our eyes and that's it. I'm thinking about what makes us our own unique self, why we are who we are and why our body  

(19) I want to become a tax preparer or another profession, start a business, then rake in as much money as i can. Then with that money i want to travel the world and better villages through spoiling their children. One thing i want to do is buy school books and materials that everyone can use.

(20) I hate celebrities and sport heroes who do no good with their instant wealth. Their greed is the sludge clogging the air flowing into life's lungs.

(21) Some people are too negative. I don't know how some people can feel so negatively towards another individual in any situation. I guess they try so hard to understand something that they get frustrated because they can't understand it. Who knows?

(22) I don't believe eating meat is necessarily a bad thing, but it should be the top of the pyramid. 

(23) The world is moving too fast. Everyone is so busy that life seems to be on fast forward. I like to pause and appreciate what's in front of me, that's why i love photography. i just wish i had something better than my camera phone.

(24) I'm the type of person who thinks of sex last in a relationship. I'm more about the love between two people and building of a partnership. 

(25) My ultimate dream is to stand in front of an applauding audience in a suit with a gallery featuring my artwork behind me in New York City. I'm going to make it happen, by any means necessary.

A Futurist Humanitarian

"I live on Earth at present, and I don’t know what I am. I know that I am not a category. I am not a thing — a noun. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process – an integral function of the universe."

"Does humanity have a chance to survive lastingly and successfully on planet Earth, and if so, how?

In 1927, a thirty two year old man stood on the edge of the lake in Chicago's Lincoln Park, planning to drop beneath the dark waters and drown. His daughter had died, his company had gone bankrupt, his reputation had been ruined, and he was becoming an alcoholic. Looking into the lake, he asked himself what one small man in his position could possible do. Then an answer came to him: he was now free to take risks, to initiate action on his own, and, by doing so, to help other people. He returned home and committed himself to the work that he believed the universe wanted him to do, instead of what he had been taught to do. He watched the laws of the natural world and altered his own living patterns accordingly, eventually changing his life completely. Those laws were to inspire and support him in his greatest achievements. But with out his believing and taking a chance, his contributions to humanity would never have been made, and no one would have come to respect the name of Buckminster Fuller

Superiority Complex

If you compare the City with the Forest, you may begin to wonder why it's man who goes around classifying himself as The Superior Animal.

Superior to what?

I don't know. I've tried to think of something, but I just can't come up with an answer.

If People were Superior to Animals, they'd take better care of the world.

Funny how a baby brings peace

Children of Men. This is an amazing film and this is the best scene. A baby stops chaos, but only momentarily.

dammit all

I can almost relate to the song "Love Burns" by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

Last week i put my phone out of commission. I sat on it. It was a Nokia 5610 XpressMusic phone and i called the insurance and they were able to send me a replacement. Thing was it was the OTHER xpressmusic phone. The wrong one. So i send it back and this time they get the correct one. So while i was waiting for my phone i had to use my old old phone. While using it i ran out of memory because of texting. So i go in to delete my in box and see some texts from February of last year with someone of the opposite sex causing nostalgia. i didn't delete anything. i'm a pussy. Things never go the way you want. A passage from The Tao of Pooh by Benjamin Hoff, "Everything has its own place and function. That applies to people, although many don't seem to realize it, stuck as they are in the wrong job, the wrong marriage, or the wrong house. When you know and respect your Inner Nature, you know where you belong. You also know where you don't belong." I have to accept that, refusing as i am of the thought. I'm not going to go any deeper so, dammit all.

gone like tears in rain

It looks to be around 6 PM. The sky's got a grey tint to it. I can't tell where i am. Its raining heavily. It's cold. I'm on my knees, rain dripping off my face, holding the remains of what use to be a cyber human. She appears to be badly damaged. I can see inside her crumbled body. Human because she's telling me things that only a soul can say. and in response i say, ".....".

I hate dreams

First Speech

I JUST thought about this. The first speech has to be a 'show and tell' and can't be longer than 2 minutes. I suspect people are going to bring in a Bible, dog, shoes, etc. i'm going to bring in a pencil and relate it to people and myself. I have the basic idea down but almost in writer's block. So it'll go something like this but not exactly:

"The Pencil. Graphite surrounded by yellow pigmented hexagonal wood. This pencil is unique. Just because it looks like every other pencil doesn't make it like every other pencil. Yes, this pencil is different. This pencil is me.

How is this me if i'm me? Well, this pencil represents all of me. Every bite mark every scratch surrounding the tip is every bit me. Each nick tells a story in a particular POINT in my life. Therefore every pencil is unique.

A particularly nervous/ anxious persons pencil will be marked by a large number of bite marks. A studious person will have a short worn pencil. An asian will have a Hello Kitty Pencil (pause for laughter)

This thing holds my every secret. Together we remember important people and imaginary friends and transfer the memory on paper. We transfer stories and arguments down too in words and diction.

Like your mind, sharpen your pencil or it'll have no point."
