I hope that it's nothing

I’m getting sick of this bullshit. I just can’t take it anymore. I hope I’m overacting and that notice I received about my building will result in nothing BAD. When I mean bad, I mean that the building will go condo. If it goes go condo, then I'll be really pissed.

I have a feeling that I’m going to be ok though, since there are businesses in the building as well, paid parking which is run by another company, as well my building was one of two that were sold. Also, the buildings were bought by an investment company so I’m sure that they’ll keep things the same. Again, I’m sure that I’m overreacting.

But if my building DOES go Condo, I’ve leaving Calgary, because I’m really getting sick of this shit.

A Yadda Yadda, but a good Yadda Yadda

I guess I’m going to label this week, TV WEEK. Now I used to be a TV junkie, but these days I’ve chosen to live with cable, because…. Most of TV is crap. It’s the same recycled bullshit sitcoms, and no one tries something different. For the record, the only time I’ve ever watched an episode of Friends was when I was on a plane. I watch what I want to watch, not what people tell me to watch. At least there’s going to me SOMETHING cool to watch this week.

Tonight I’m looking forward to Heroes. This is one of the few shows that I love. It’s a show I wish I could be on. It’s a show that keeps you on the edge of your seat, but actually gives you some resolution. Last season they did manage to save New York, and tie up most of the story lines. Sure there were a thing or two that made you think “what are they talking about”, but overall, it was a neat little package. Oh and giving us a cliffhanger by giving us a preview of “Book 2” was great. I want to know how Hiro will deal with feudal Japan.

On Thursday, I’m looking forward to the return of Smallville. Now I’ve heard that people have called it Beverly Hills 90210 meets Superboy or X-Files meets Superboy, but I think the show is cool. Personally, I think the best episodes were the ones with Christopher Reeves as the special guest.

I guess everyone is seeing a trend her, and it shouldn’t be a surprise. Yes I like superheroes. When I was a kid, I wanted to be a superhero. I think superheroes are cool. I used to love running up and down the street with a beach towel tied behind my neck, and that was last week.

I will also confess that I love watching superhero cartoon as well as anime. I just wish that the superhero cartoons would be a little…edgier. I know that in the U.S. they have a hard time getting past the “Cartoons are for Kids” thing. I remember when they did the gay marriage episode, there was some religious group rep on TV and of course he said “Cartoons are for kids”. You know what? Cartoons are not “just” for kids, but tell that to those closed minded Religious Right whackoes. YES I’m still pissed at those close minded people.

What really bothers me is that Jesus was about helping people. He feed the poor, healed the sick, and he died for our sins. He gave comfort those in need. He told people not to judge other. He said that he, who is without sin, cast the first stone. Today, we have people who claim to follow the teachings of the New Testament, but for the life of me I cannot remember being taught that Jesus said, YOU SHALL NOT BE GAY, in Religion class, but I do remember being taught that Jesus spoke about helping others, clothing the poor, feed the hungry, nursing the sick, and I’m pretty sure if I did some actually research, in the Bible, instead of relying on Religion class from Catholic school, and I went to Catholic School from grade Kindergarten to Grade 11. At least when it comes to religion, there people like Tony Campolo who, in my opinion, get it right.

I swear I had a simple topic. I was going to talk about Heroes, but from there, I went to how we can all be a hero, by helping someone in need. This turned into a Yadda, Yadda, but a good Yadda, Yadda.

Thursday, September 20, 2007


I’ve recently received some spam for a product called (drumroll please), Wondercum. Yes, there’s now an “all natural” product out there which will give me the power to…umm you know.

First of all, I want to meet the marketing genius who named this product. With a name like that, you know that your product is not going to end up on the vitamin section of Wal-Mart. Second of all is the word “cum’ that appears throughout the website. I mean come on. Lastly, there are the testimonials; well I let them speak for themselves.

When I ejaculate the feeling is so much greater and it has increased up to 3 times the amount and a lot thicker from when I was not using WonderCum, as my orgasms are more powerful than I have ever felt before in my lifetime.”

I did not need to know this information.

Another thing, there’s a “As seen on TV” logo on the website. I want to know which channel is airing Wondercum ads and I want to know right now. You are not going to convince me that there are commercials, or worse yet infomercials about this product. I can just picture the male/female couple sitting on a couch talking about the benefits of Wondercum. They go on and on and then go to taped testimonials (yes more testimonials).

First you get the 40 year old taking how he hasn’t umm… you know… like that in years. He’ll talk about how it’s like he’s a teenager all over again. Then they find some 50 year old guy and he’s go on about it, and then he’s go on about whitewashing his fence, meanwhile his wife will be in the background with a “get your hands off me” look. Then finally they will go to come 30something couple and they will talk about how it “changed their lives”, all this while they’re white stains in the curtains behind them.

Maybe, I’m looking at this the wrong way, (though I’m sure that I’m not). Maybe it’s the man’s partner who would appreciate this product. Maybe she wants…. Never mind I’m not going there.

Needless to say this was a pathetic piece of spam, though not as bad as the one about “enlargement” and how he would send me pictures of his “deal” to prove it. BULLSHIT, and he’s probably not even selling anything, he just wants to send pictures of his “deal” to total strangers.

I had this strange dream last night.

Last night I had this dream. I’m not sure what was going on, but I do remember going on a cruise, but it was some weird sail boat, but cool at the same time. I also remember getting into a huge argument with my dad about my luggage, which was left behind. I remember it was pretty heated, but I ended up winning by default when the ZOMBIES got him.

I told him that there were zombies on the boat, but did he listen? Nooooo. Next time he’ll listen to me when I say “Dad, there are zombies on the boat”.

The new thingy on my blog.

Guess, what? I put a new thingy on my blog. See it on the right? There’s been talk about Net Neutrality in the U.S. for awhile now, but there hasn’t been much talk about it up here. I think that’s because were too polite for our own good sometimes. We just shut up and accept things for as they are.

I remember awhile back when I had my Vonage phone, the service would really suck because Shaw was throttling my bandwidth, but Shaw was nice enough to offer me the option of pay an extra $10 a month so that my Vonage phone would work properly.

I know that this is a hot topic in the U.S. and it’s recently reared it’s ugly head in the UK, over the BBC’s new video service, though we don’t hear about stuff like this in Japan, Korea and Finland. Why is that? Simple, really, cause they have BIGGER TUBES than we do.

What really bothers me is that companies in Canada (and the U.S.) are too damn cheap, in expanding their network. They CLAIM, that they have fast networks but when you actually try and get the speed they promise, it never happens, and dammit, sometimes you need to download porn at a really fast rate.

It’s not at the point where’s it’s interfering with my City of Heroes game and that REALLY pisses me off. I know what I paid for, now give it to me or give me a refund.

Oh, and if seems confusing, the here's a video done by a Ninja to explain it all.

Pondering on Monday

It’s almost quitting time so I thought I would take some time to reflect on things.

Farting in a bathtub is cool.

Smurfs are communists.

Mr. T. will always rule.

I like Homer Simpson, but I hate Peter Griffin and I don’t know why.

I’m gassy today.

I had to buy two boxes of Simpsons cookies this weekend. One for my friend in HR and one for the HR box so he’ll leave my friends cookies; alone.

One day I will win at Scrabble

Movies that I thought were dirty when I was a kid are pretty lame now.

I’m bored with Porn.

I don’t care is she is on a stamp, Joni Mitchell will always be some woman, in a beret, smoking in a coffee shop in Montreal

I wonder if I’ll ever truly enjoy life.

Can two lab mice truly take over the world?

So what I need to do is.... NO COOKIES !!!!

I’m annoyed with myself right now. I’m going to go into details (because it’s all Geek blaa blaa), but needless to say that I should have known better, trusted my instincts and knowledge instead of listening to some jackass who claimed to be the be all and know all of getting my site up on Google.

The truth is that it’s going to take MONTHS to get Space Station Anime to get a decent page ranking (it’s a Google thing) and to be get a good spot on Google. I’m now at the point where I’m going to have to spend some money on Google Adwords. Needless to say I’ll be spending my weekend on which (geek blaaa blaaa blaaa). Once again, things are proving to be more difficult than I thought. Oh well, big surprise.

Oh, my first customer did get his DVD in the mail without any issues, so I know I can do this, I need to put up a big sign somewhere that says “BUY MY CRAP”!!! Oh and I’m talking to you!!! No, not the regular people who visit this blog, BUT THE PEOPLE WHO SHOW UP LOOKING FOR JESSICA KARR. I mean, I blogged about her over 2 years ago, GET A LIFE GUYS. There are no pictures of the “big ole dead titties” girl here. SHEESH.

Sorry about that. I just get visitors looking for Jessica Karr.

This reminds me of my recent problem I’ve been having in blogging lately. I start to blog about something and I either loose my train of thought something else happens and before you know it. I SAID NO COOKIES !!!!!

I think I’m suffering from Blogging ADD. Even know I’m moving from writing this post to leafing though a PDF about Google Adwords. MMmm So it the Google Adwords doesn’t work out then I’ll have to push my visits, and quitting even FURTHER. (well maybe not quitting).

Ok, so here’s a plan. Once upon a time, I blogged at night, when I got home. This was back when I worked afternoons, and didn’t get home before 10:00pm. This is also before I started playing City of Heroes, but I usually play between 7:00 and 9:00pm, so it should be ok.

So let’s review. Google Adwords, Blogging at night and NO COOKIES before dinner.

Oh and I want to talk to the guy who makes the Safeway brand Grape Juice crystals, It’s having an unusual effect on me. I thought that only happened to babbies.

Reflecting on the worst day in my lifetime

Once again, it’s that date and once again, I think about that day. I know it’s been years since that day and the world has change, not for the better in my opinion, but I always think about that day. The disbelief, the disgust I felt for people who just didn’t “get it”, and the shame of thinking that I could be doing something more instead of going about my daily life.

I specially remember the disdain I felt for the “boss” at work. All he thought about was “getting the job done”. This guy had always pissed me off, with his glass tower style of management, but on that particular day, I seriously wanted to smack this guy over the head with a large metal objects. Even to this day I feel this guy is nothing more than a networking butt smoocher.

There was this other guy, who happens to be a friend, who always had an anti-US attitude and he seemed to have no compassion over what happened. He felt that “they had it coming”. I felt that he was wrong to say that and I also had the urge to smack him over the head with a large metal object.

I also remember that the first thing Michael Moore did was put up a post on his sight about blaming everything on the Bush Government. It was soon removed when he realized that this was something beyond blue states and red states. I still want to smack this guy over the head with a shovel, not because of his beliefs, I can respect someone who has different beliefs than me, it’s because of his arrogance that he’s always right and never wrong, even when he molds facts.

Over the past 6 years since that day, I’ve seen the Religious Right gain more and more power in the U.S. This concerns me, because I know of another state where religious leaders are also in charge, Iran, I hear that things are not that good over there.

Once upon a time, I considered myself to be a conservative, until they moved the line wayyy to the right. Now I don’t trust any political party.

I just checked out a ground zero webcam and I’m bothered by the fact that after 6 years, there really isn’t anything to see above ground. I know that they’ve rebuilt the subways underground, but over ground, there really isn’t much to see. They have so many plans for the site, which includes a memorial to the people who needlessly lost their lives, but let’s see something go up. Sheesh.

I also remember that a few weeks ago, a flight was cancelled because some women heard some men speaking Arabic and she thought they were terrorists, and the went on about “her kids, blaa blaa” . More proof that the world has gotten worse.

I guess this has sort of turned into a Yadda, Yadda. I’m not sure what I need to say, I just know I need to say something.

Yadda Again

So yesterday I had my first sale. I’m started the long road to recovering from my investment. This purchase was from a friend, so the “official” promoting hasn’t taken off yet, but then again, I’m not expecting it too for a couple of weeks. Nonetheless, I’ve made my first sale. WOOT.

Now because of this sale, I actually had the opportunity to go through all the steps of processing a real order. WOW!!!. The only bad part was that I was so tired last night when I got home; I didn’t do the actually processing until this morning, 5:00am this morning to be specific. I woke up early, did all the processing, forwarded the order to my supplier and boom, everything is taken care of. Now I’m just waiting for the confirmation e-mail that the order was sent, so I can let my customer know. I’m just glad that this customer is a friend so he won’t mind me waddling through this process.

I still have to do the promotion thing with the site. I’m still a few weeks away from when I submitted the site to Google so I’m hoping that I start seeing real customers soon.

So I’m looking for a new topic to blog about and all I find is stuff about the new IPod and how people got SCREWED by the $200 price drop in the IPhone. SUCKERS !!!., but I don’t want to blog about that.

Where is my creativity? I know it comes and goes but right now it’s bothering me. I need to write and say something to the world, but now that the world is listening, all I can do is scratch my ass.

Speaking of which, why is it that my ass only itches when I’m surrounded by people, so I have to excuse myself to the washroom. I really hate that.

Ok it’s not happening. Perhaps I’ll have better luck tomorrow.

The Ultimate IPod Accessory?

Here I go again. I’ve tried a few times today to write something on the blog and I’m either get interrupted, called away, or look my train of thought. Vics sent me this link last week, in what I believe is a dare. I believe she misses the post where I would talk about such things without fear or shame. I guess I’ve needed a little inspiration, and this is it.

Now I know how popular Ipods are, though I don’t own one myself, and I know that the Ipod accessory market is very big right now, but I’d like to meet the guy who thought this up. He’s either very creative or extremely perverted, or both. Oh course I’m talking about the vibrator attachment for your Ipod. Yes, the listener plugs an attachment into the Ipod so she can both hear and “feel” the music.

What I wonder is, what type of would give the user the best “experience”. Something with a lot of base, like Heavy metal music? How about a full Symphony Orchestra? What about an opera. Would the shrill from the “fat lady” put someone “over the top”?

Here’s an idea. I’m going to commission a stuffy. I’m going to find out what type of music is more likely to bring someone “over the top”. I’ll apply for a grant, then purchase several of these devices, along with an Ipod, and then recruit some test subjects, then give different playlists to use while they “use the product” and then they can record the results, including what song made them “Praise the Lord”. I’m pretty sure that this data could be very helpful to all of mankind, or maybe not, but dammit it’s an interesting, now I just need a grant.

Now that I think of it, the women who use the thing might be perfect for me. They’re tech savy and horny. IT’S PERFECT. I’ve always hated dumb people, and women who owns, and load their own songs, and playlists on their Ipods are not dumb. Oh and if they buy the “special attachment”, all I got to say is “YES!!!”.

I an left to wonder though, does Steve Jobs know about this thing?
