NYE, part deux

ok, i've gotten some action on the plans but not as much as i'd hoped; actually, only JHo and TheSteadman, and Chump might have to work. so, here's the dilly. i'm thinking mcfadden's ($100), but we need 1 or 5 more people (or 9 if we're feeling frisky) to round out the 4 person/table thing. if we don't get good numbers, i'll book whoever is down to go to FBWB. it doesn't seem they have a table minimum. no open bar :-( but i'll survive i'm sure, hah.

my plan is to give you guys a few days to think, (i'll email too) and i'll book reservations around the 22nd or 23rd. get back to me here, at my yahoo, or at my gmail account. TheGeneral address if you must, but i won't be checking it as often. i'll be available on my US phone as of 7PM EST on friday, the 19th. later.

Saturday, December 13, 2008


anyone interested in doing something different this news years? i've been talking to people to look into things and so far these are some decent ideas that seem cool. we'll taxi about, whatever, just have fun and get out.
  1. The Lodge Bar - $15 advance tickets, $2 draft, $3 wells, we can reserve a table ahead of time, live music by Bling Crosbys

  2. Frog Bear Wild Boar - platinum package is $40 per person, reserved table, dinner buffet 7-10pm, complimentary bottle of bubbly, live music by Introspect and DJ Nohbody

  3. McFadden's - $100/person for table of 4, complimentary bottle of champagne, dinner buffet, live music and dancing, OPEN BAR!!! or if we didn't want a table, it is the same benefits without the table for $70/person ($65/person if we have more 10+ people)
i seriously think all of them look fun and affordable, it's something new for us to do. it'll be fun. i've only ever been to FBWB myself. anyone been to the others? reviews? plus, with the free bottle of champagne and open bar at McFadden's, i think whichever option we might choose, we'd end up saving money. i'm seriously up for any of those ideas, or let's try some other place. also, i invite anyone to come up with other suggestions. let me know.

the mosquito test - how old are your ears?

i found a link yesterday about how kids are using 17 Hz tones on their phones in school to alert them of text messages. this is because the older you get, the less likely you are to be able to hear tones of the frequency. the page has frequencies from 11-18 Hz programmed into it. i was using it at work the other day and it was hilarious. i started at 18 and worked my way down until i surreptitiously observed that everyone had noticed, and it was strikingly accurate. i could hear all the tones, and as i moved down, more and more people noticed. let us know how it works for you.

give it a try

"I'm Not Even Angry"

Who knew that the worst FREE Rockband download had an equally crappy video? This song sucks so freakin' much. Maybe this song would make sense if I would have played Portal, but I doubt that would make it any better. But nonetheless, I'M NOT EVEN ANGRY because I didn't have to pay for this shite.

What Next?

It's going to be WAR. Probably with Pakistan.

When we have an Administration who will go to war with those who never attacked us (it's called "The Bush Doctrine" Mrs. Palin) what makes Bush or McCain NOT attack Pakistan? They house Osama bin Laden. The U.S.A. is currently launching missile attacks inside the sovereign nation of Pakistan, against Pakistan's wishes. Now there are reports of a suicide bombing of a Marriot Hotel in Pakistan. Is that the opening the govn't needs?

McCain will invade Pakistan...Hell, he wants to talk about attacking our allies.

Just Days Away

a line from a September 20th N.Y. Times article:

"As Senator Christopher J. Dodd, Democrat of Connecticut and chairman of the Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee, put it Friday morning on the ABC program “Good Morning America,” the congressional leaders were told “that we’re literally maybe days away from a complete meltdown of our financial system, with all the implications here at home and globally.”"

And, on another topic, what does John McCain have in his brain as to how to get more Americans health care?

John McCain’s article, "Better Health Care at Lower Cost for Every American", in the Sept./Oct. issue of Contingencies, the magazine of the American Academy of Actuaries. You might want to be seated before reading this.

Here’s what McCain has to say about the wonders of market-based health reform:

"Opening up the health insurance market to more vigorous nationwide competition, as we have done over the last decade in banking, would provide more choices of innovative products less burdened by the worst excesses of state-based regulation."

Yeah, let's make health care like the current banking system. If we do, then we will have Socialistic Health Care. Since a great deal of banks are now under government control (and as much as a trillion plus dollars more of our money will be used to run banks).

Why does the Oil Industry never get Socialized? Only the failing markets get controlled by the government. Why does the Conservatives NOT take over successful Oil Companies so WE (the taxpayers) can get a return on all our bad investments? That would be Liberal, to take over successful stuff. Let the fat cats get richer when they are turning a profit, but bail them out when they Fukk up royally.

And yes, They are the ones who Fukked up. Ben Bernake, the Fed Chairman, even admitted it to Congress.

What Does This Mean To US?

And what does THIS mean to US?

Good Point J Ho

With all those financial institutions shutting down, how does this one stay in business.

Lehman Brothers survived WWI, WWII, and the Fukkin' Depression! But couldn't survive the housing crisis. Predatory Lending, the Housing Bubble Burst, and several other factors led to the demise of these and many more financial institutions. Many Americans were severely affected by this collapse.

But you don't see them getting bailed out by the Government. Except for a stimulus check that was gobbled up by Oil Companies who happened to increase gasoline prices during that time to $5.00/gallon; and grocery stores who raised basic food prices to record numbers during that time.

More Tongue-In-Cheek Comedy

This time by Bill Maher. His infamous "New Rules"

New Rule: Aw, perfect. If you're a baby mama trying to hide your baby daddy's baby behind your mama's baby, you just might be a redneck. At least when Obama got a convention bump, it wasn't leaking amniotic fluid.

New Rule: Get a room. [shots of McCain and Palin] John McCain has called his VP his "soul mate." Is this a running mate or a mid-life crisis? The old maverick is so hot for the MILF - he had to put a folder in front of his crotch because the "surge" was working.

New Rule: [with shot of Fred Thompson] You can't criticize someone for giving a - quote - "teleprompter speech" in a speech you are reading off a "teleprompter." Also, you can't accuse the other guy of being a celebrity when you, yourself, have been in movies, starred on TV - and modeled for a shoe company. [shot of Thompson next to Hush Puppies hound] He looks like the...

New Rule: Democrats - Democrats must not treat Sarah Palin with kid gloves just because she's a lady. And you can start at the debates. "Sarah Barracuda" meet "Joey the Shark."

All right, and finally, New Rule: Republicans must stop saying Obama is an elitist and just admit you don't like him because of something he can't help, something that's a result of the way he was born. Admit it. You're not voting for him because he's smarter than you.

Now, in her acceptance speech, Governor Palin accused Obama of using his run for the White House as a "journey of personal discovery." This from the lady who just spent ten minutes introducing her family: Track - Track, Trig, Bristol, Piper. For a minute there, I thought she was calling in an airstrike.

Karl Rove described Obama as - quote - "the guy at the country club with the beautiful date, holding a martini and making snide comments about everyone who passes by." Unlike George Bush, who is the guy at the country club who makes snide comments and then passes out.

Now, this characterization, of course, was something Mr. Rove just pulled out of his bulbous, gelatinous ass - but, remember, this is America, where people believe anything they hear. One of McCain's ads casts Obama as "the one," implying he thinks he's the Messiah. Well, good, maybe he can raise McCain from the dead.

But, it doesn't matter to Karl Rove that his country club caricature is made up. It's the role that Obama must play if the party of plutocrats is going to win over the little guy. But, Barack Obama can't help it is he's a magna cum laude Harvard grad and you're a Wal-Mart shopper - who resurfaces driveways with your brother-in-law.

Americans are so narcissistic that our candidates have to be just like us: not very bright. And that's where the McCain camp gets their strategy. Paint Obama as cocky and arrogant and wait for America to vote him off like the black guy in every reality show.

A black president? Half of Pennsylvania isn't ready for a black quarterback! Forget Obama. They think Will Smith needs to be taken down a peg. And they may be right about that one, I can tell you.

And as for "Country First," you know who's putting "Country First"? I am. By supporting Obama. Because a victory this fall for the McCain-Mooseburger ticket...would make my job the next four years very, very easy.

The Farmer's Almanac Can Predict The Future...


One of the examples of “the media being the message” is the annual release of the Farmers’ Almanac predictions of the coming winter. The mass media treat this as a story worthy of being reported. This is in spite of the fact that the Almanac’s predictions are — in the words of magician-comedians Penn & Teller — bullshit. Yet like so many other outlets, the Hartford Courant tells us:
People worried about the high cost of keeping warm this winter will draw little comfort from the Farmers’ Almanac, which predicts below-average temperatures for most of the U.S.

“Numb’s the word,” says the 192-year-old publication, which claims an accuracy rate of 80 to 85 percent for its forecasts that are prepared two years in advance.

The almanac’s 2009 edition says at least two-thirds of the country can expect colder-than-average temperatures this winter, with only the Far West and Southeast in line for near-normal readings.

Unfortunately the people who publish the Almanac either cannot or will not divulge their prediction method. But fortunately, we can test their predictions’ accuracy … and they fail. Meteorologists have taken on the Farmers’ Almanac (and the similarly-named and similarly-themed Old Farmer’s Almanac, which is in the same business of spewing baseless weather predictions) and have found them to be, well, "unimpressive" might be the kindest assessment.

Some of their predictions are too vague to be testable…others have been shown to be downright wrong. The bottom line is that the Almanac’s claim of 80 to 85 percent accuracy is exactly and only that — a claim. They can claim to be able to flap their arms and fly to the heavens, too, but that wouldn’t be any more correct.

Just the fact that the Almanac has been in print for so many years does not give it veracity. Lots of things are old, but that doesn’t make them right.?.?

An AP article consults an NOAA meteorologist on the matter, who also wouldn’t comment specifically on the almanac’s ability to forecast the weather two years from now, but said it’s generally impossible to come up with accurate forecasts more than a week in advance.

What is with the Almanac? You can't comment on it's actuality? Even experts are discouraged from talking about it. Is it "un-American" to be 'truthful' about an institution so ingrained in this country? I don't give a flying fuck, I speak the truth.

Is this talk of below average temps and above average precip a ploy to make Americans think that Global Climate Change is not happening? Before the election? To garner more support for McCain, who is in the pocket of Corporations and it's lobbyists (the Almanac is bought by companies who then give it away for free -- without the companies, no Almanac)? And without relevance, no power.

It would have been nice if the NOAA scientist had been a little more forceful and stated the truth more clearly: “The Almanac is bullshit!” But I guess someone in government can’t afford to be undiplomatic. The AP wraps up its advertisement story on the Almanac by giving it a fashionable “green” endorsement:
If there’s a theme to this year’s almanac, it’s environmental awareness, frugality and living a sustainable life. There are articles on water conservation, gas-sipping motor scooters, natural cures and preventions for colds and other illnesses, and on growing food without a yard.

Sorry, but I don’t buy bullshit, even if it meets the politically-correct standard of being “green”.

"Green" Bullshit is the same as Very Old, Stale, Hardened Bullshit.

J Ho's Favorite Bible Quotes

This quote especially tickles my loins. Now I know why so many people love the Bible: the amount of sexual depravity will make even the most pedophillic priest blush. No wonder the most sexually wild woman were religious. They believe in God, but they love screaming "Oh God!!!" You know about the 'stereotype' of Catholic School Girls? They are a stereotype because some part of it is true

Sunday school lessons tend to focus on God turning Lot's wife into a pillar of salt like she's starring in one of Sarah Connor's nightmares from Terminator 2: Judgment Day. It's the sort of imagery that might distract you from something like flagrant incest

From Genesis 19:30-36
30 Now Lot went up out of Zoar and lived in the hills with his two daughters, for he was afraid to live in Zoar. So he lived in a cave with his two daughters. 31 And the firstborn said to the younger, “Our father is old, and there is not a man on earth to come in to us after the manner of all the earth. 32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve offspring from our father.” 33 So they made their father drink wine that night. And the firstborn went in and lay with her father. He did not know when she lay down or when she arose.

34 The next day, the firstborn said to the younger, “Behold, I lay last night with my father. Let us make him drink wine tonight also. Then you go in and lie with him, that we may preserve offspring from our father.” 35 So they made their father drink wine that night also. And the younger arose and lay with him, and he did not know when she lay down or when she arose. 36 Thus both the daughters of Lot became pregnant by their father.

Something tells us Lot's daughters would lose any drinking game centered around "Never Have I Ever." If you've done it in a cave--and you've done it with your dad--you've probably also done it tangled in Fruit By The Foot or by accident with a vegetable.

Speaking of people who might want to steer clear of drinking games, the Bible seems to blame the whole thing on the evil women getting the MAN drunk on booze, a strategy you'll recognize from work the morning after karaoke night. How can a woman read this book and think this thing is relevant? The alcohol in this case is wine, which raises the question: how much wine do you have to drink before you became oblivious to the fact that you were having sex with your daughter ... a second time? Well, I drink wine. I guess it depends on how hot the daughters are.

J Ho's Favorite Bible Quotes

Since it is Sunday; just another ordinary, normal, non-important day; here is another one of my favorite Bible quotes. From Gen. 38:15-16:

"When Judah saw her, he thought her to be a harlot; because she had covered her face. And he turned to her by the way, and said, Go to, I pray thee, let me come in unto thee; for he know not that she was his daughter-in-law."

You'd think the Bible would've just edited out all of the misconceptions involving veils, considering how many times people accidentally have sex with the wrong person in this book. Pesky veils, and now our only excuses are ... like ... alcohol, right? And being out of town so it doesn't count?

Of course us Americans don't realize the kind of impact a veil can have on a relationship. Our women are free to just walk around with their faces flapping in the wind, exposing their identity to the world. You have to hand it to the countries where women still wear veils: it must be a lot easier to write sitcom episodes that revolve around wacky cases of mistaken identity.

Note that the frisky slut above is the same slut (Tamar) who got to witness Onan being slain by the LORD for coitus interruptus. Getting right back on that horse, Tamar! Only instead of a horse, it's Judah--Onan's dad. Score!

If you don't think that's hot, you've ... never been to a really drunk family reunion where everyone's wearing veils and no one is aware it's a family reunion.

Stupid Americans

Rev. Rick Warren held an interview (don't get me started as to why it is important to talk to this blowhard snake-charming money-grubbing pulpit-er) with John McCain and Barack Obama, showing the senators in the same venue for the first time. McCain made clear his ideas between rich and poor, when he said that the line between rich and poor is $5 million a year. Yes, this was a joke, but the average voter understands that this type of thing maybe shouldn’t be joked about when you’re sitting under the "Mendoza Line".

This goes hand-in-hand with a statment McCain said last week at a private get-together. When joking about lopsided tax breaks at dinner, he purportedly justified it by saying, “People who make under $80,000 are too stupid to understand taxes anyway.”

This makes sense, as he’s somehow convinced the public that he’s the candidate for tax cuts. Meanwhile if we look at the breakdown, we see that McCain’s tax cuts do not help people who make $80,000, in order to give huge tax breaks to the top 1% of the population. How is it possible to get people to vote against their best interests? According to McCain it’s because you’re too stupid to understand.

This Is Why I Don't Watch Baseball...

and NASCAR: everybody cheats.

When more talk is about which Manufacturer has the advantage in horsepower instead of who is the better driver (it's been like this for years now), there are problems with stock car racing. When Toyota wins 15 of 25 Nationwide Series races, with Joe Gibbs Racing winning a bulk of them, and they resort to low tactics to remain above the rest, it goes to show the dollar and corporations are ruining the sport.

Of all the cheating incidents seen in recent memory, there are probably countless episodes that were never caught. Just like baseball, the large amount of "turn your back towards so to claim ignorance to keep the money flowing" is sinking this sport in my eyes. I wonder if there are more out there who feel this way.

J Ho's Favorite Bible Quotes

Since the Bible is the end-all, be-all of knowledge in the world, for ever and eeevvvvveerrrr, AMEN, I decided to start a list of my favorite Bible quotes. My Playboy subscriptions were getting pretty stale so I thought I might "take it up a notch" with some of the most sexual depraved writings this living planet has ever seen. If you've ever heard masturbation referred to as "onanism", well, you've got one guy to thank.

Judah 38:8-10

Then Judah said to Onan, "Unite with your brother's widow, in fulfillment of your duty as brother-in-law, and thus preserve your brother's line."
Onan, however, knew that the descendants would not be counted as his; so whenever he had relations with his brother's widow, he wasted his seed on the ground, to avoid contributing offspring for his brother.
What he did greatly offended the LORD, and the LORD took his life too.

Now there's something a woman never forgets. You're getting busy with your husband's brother, he splooges on the ground, and promptly gets slain by the LORD. Talk about awkward.

This particular verse was taken slightly out-of-context when it gave birth to "onanism," which refers to both coitus interruptus and masturbation. It's probably just as well that he died, and didn't have to walk around the rest of his life listening to people refer to jerking off as "Doing an Onan." I wonder if Onan had a "love sock", or a "love fascia".

Just Like His Ideas

Below is a picture of out President holding the American flag backwards for almost 20 minutes at an Olympic event. The photo pretty much sums up the President's idea of the current status of America: We all know the country is backwards from it's ideals; but, at his position, America is positioned correctly.

Did anyone see the Bob Costas interview of G.W.? Costas asked Bush how he talks with the Chinese President over the current problems happening in the United States and Bush says, "I don't see any problems with America."

T and I were talking today, and he said that since he's been smokeless, he doesn't cough as much as he used to. Then we started talking about the Candid T video and how everytime he laughed it turned into a coughing spell (as you can see for yourself).

I've also uploaded two more videos from last year at Bristol, but to view em, you're gonna have to head over to The Bristol Experience.

Don't Have...

this web site bookmarked if you are taking your laptop with you on a flight. Not content with taking your shoes and confiscating your water, now the Department of Homeland Security is gunning for your laptops. As the Washington Post reported yesterday, Border Patrol and Customs agents can now “detain” laptops “for a reasonable period of time” to “review and analyze information.” They don’t need probable cause under the new policy. Doesn’t matter if you’re a U.S. citizen or foreign visitor. Officials can hold the laptops indefinitely. Or hard drives, flash drives, cellphones, iPods, pagers, beepers, video and audio tapes. Ditto papers, documents, books, pamphlets, even litter.

“It’s not our intent to subject legitimate travelers to undue scrutiny, but to ensure the safety of the American public,” wrote Jayson Ahern, U.S. Customs deputy commissioner, in a recent policy paper. Arguing that border searches of laptops have already uncovered intellectual property rights violations, extremist Jihadist literature, video clips of IEDs and child pornography, he pledged the government would never disclose confidential information “without lawful authority.” The policy has been on the books for awhile, but just confirmed under pressure from civil rights and business groups worried about increasing reports of laptop confiscation.

The Brain

The Power of the Brain. To those who see the pearly gates at time of near-death, it's just your brain going crazy. Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor had an opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: One morning, she realized she was having a massive stroke. As it happened -- as she felt her brain functions slip away one by one, speech, movement, understanding -- she studied and remembered every moment. This is a powerful story of recovery and awareness -- of how our brains define us and connect us to the world and to one another. (Recorded February 2008 in Monterey, California. Duration: 18:44.)

At Least She Is Trying To Quit...

being such a pussy.

Democrats. Mostly Pussies. At least Dennis Kucinich has already brought articles of impeachment against G.W. already, and he has brought them up again. This time, he got the votes and backing to bring the articles to committee. Step one in the thousand steps needed to bring democracy back to America.

But Pelosi has already said that these articles will NEVER make it's way to a House vote. Then why are they sending this to committee? Because Democrats are pussies. Nothing But All Talk And A Badge.

They let Clinton get impeached by the Right Wing Religious Wack-Jobs because he got a little play in the White House. THAT compared to the HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS committed by this Presidency is like a military focusing all attention on a country that never attacked them instead of .... you know the rest of the story. We all know the rest of the story. But nobody in power is doing anything to punish those responsible.

Vote every incumbent out: Republican and Democrat, except for Kucinich.

Sports Video Games

This article got me thinking about some of the sports video games I've played that have the "money plays" that always work.

In NHL 97(or maybe 98, correct me if I'm wrong C), you could skate head on at the goalie, pull off a 90 degree cut to the right and score on the most amazing backhand that I or anyone else has ever seen. It was guaranteed. So much so that in one game against C, I scored 20 goals. We never finshed the game(or played it ever again) because C was quick to shutdown the computer.

Another good one was in NFL Gameday(again 97 or 98). There were 2 plays. The first was "352 Seam." Take the slot receiver on the left(I think) and move him to the slot on the right. In the original formation the receiver ran a post route from the left to the middle. After moving him he ran a post from the right to the middle. This one takes some time to develop, but after 7-10 seconds(not that hard to avoid the pressure) he was left standing wide open in the end zone with his thumb up his ass. Can you say 6! The only way to prevent it is to manually switch to a DB and cover the guy yourself. And that didn't always work either. Another play is called "Corner." Do the exact same thing as in the previous play and you'll be dancing with the cheerleaders. I remember being down at OU and we had a Gameday tournament going on. I was playing against Rob. Down 7 with about 10 seconds left in the game. Ran "352 Seam" and scored on a 50 yard bomb. Sent it into overtime and got the win. Needless to say he was pissed.

Anyone else got any video game "wtf's" they want to share?

those crazy kuwaitis

being that where i'm currently working is REALLY close to the middle east, we are privy to monthly security updates from the local embassy. while scanning the most recent one, i found something i thought was funny. sadly, i thought the kuwaitis were a little more progressive than this.
Kuwait Times 3 June 2008 -- A team of researchers in Kuwait concluded that the increase in homosexuals in the country is due to female teachers in primary schools. The study recommended that only males teach male students and female teachers be allowed only for female students. The study also mentioned that an increase in children being raised by maids and a decrease in parental involvement during childrearing has a contributory effect. An earlier Kuwait University study linked "uranium in the atmosphere" to homosexuality in Kuwait.
uranium?! seriously. now that's grasping at straws, or maybe it's leftovers from the iranian nuclear power plants. apparently, it doesn't take much in the way of credentials to be part of a study in kuwait. all you need is a deep-rooted, culturally-imposed prejudice and the close-mindedness to attribute that bigotry to the first (or second) absurd idea you can think of.

Just When You Thought....

It Was Safe To Walk On Water.

Okay... I Remember NOW Why Guitar Hero Sucks...

In the beginning, there was Guitar Hero. And that was okay. In fact, pre-RockBand, GH was actually pretty sweet. How fukkin cool was it to pretend you actually have some musical talent and totally rock out in front of a simulated crowd? It was fun... until RockBand was released.

RockBand was created by a group of Guitar Hero defectors, that left RedOctane (GH game developer) to form Harmonix (RB game developer) and decided to do things there own way. They capitalized on what they had learned developing GH and took the rockin-out genre to a new level. With the introduction of a drum set and microphone, you were no longer stuck simply playing lead guitar by yourself, while all your friends were out getting laid. With RB, you could invited your friends over, and everyone could join in on the abstinence. So obviously, with the introduction of additional instruments, for both variety and social gameplay, RB did not quickly grow stagnate. But the guys at Harmonix had yet another trick up there sleves. They also teamed up with EA, who has quite a bit of influence (read: MONEY) in the industry. Enter RockBand's downloadable content. Both GH and RB have downloadables, but RB consistently releases at least 3 downloads each Tuesday, with varying styles, from Disturbed to Jimmy Buffet... something for every musical taste. This keeps RB fresh and fun, while GH weeps in the corner because nobody wants to play with him.

The folks at Guitar Hero knew they were being crushed by RockBand, so to step up their game a notch, they've announced the upcoming release of Guitar Hero World Tour, complete with drum set and microphone. Granted, the drums are different (three pads and two symbols), but frankly it's still a blatent rip-off of RB. In my opinion, GH has dropped the ball again. Instead of raising the bar with maybe an interactive keyboard or turntables or something unique, they've just copied what has worked for RockBand. Copying RB might not be a bad thing, but how sustainable is that strategy? Especially if they don't have the "connections" to release quality downloads?

Interestingly, today those crazy SOB's at RB announced plans to release RockBand 2 in September. Right now there's not much information about what to expect out of RB2, but there better be something new to up the ante. And I'm not talking about a new, stylized guitar. I want a keyboard, or turntables, or dare I say COWBELL. Give me something else other than a game with updated graphics and a $60 price tag that could be better spent on downloads. I have confidence that the team at RB is smarter than that and will surprise us. That is unless they've been forced to rush the release of RB2 to stay ahead of GH.

With all that behind me, let me tell you about the motivation for this post in the first place... GUITAR HERO: AEROSMITH. Yes I am an Aerosmith fan, and yes I am addicted to rockin' out on a faux-guitar. But I wasn't entirely enthused to own this game. I will admit, I was somewhat pressured to buy this game. You see, at work, we have been forced by the corporate machine to push video game pre-sales on our customers. My sales were down, so I put up the money to buy a copy of GH:A way back in April. So when GH:A was released Saturday night at midnight, I was there to pick up my copy. I've been playing it for two days now, and MY review is in.

Let me begin by saying that this game is a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT. Don't waste your money. If you want to play it, I will lend you my copy when I'm done with it in a few days. (BTW, I am serious, if you want it, I will lend it to you... BTBz ONLY). So why was the game so disappointing? First off, it's not RockBand... obviously. You play the set list, unlock more songs, play them, etc. Then when you're done, that's it. You can't rock out on drums or sing along. I found myself more than once craving the drums on certain songs, especially Sweet Emotion. But no, I'll just sit here and play the guitar part. And who doesn't know all the lyrics to Aerosmith's best hits? I'd love to be able to sing along. But no, I can't sing into a guitar. I just found myself wanting more to do. Maybe I'm just a RockBand snob, but with an epic band such as Aerosmith with their plethora of hits, they (Aerosmith) have done themselves a disservice aligning themselves with a game that doesn't have drums and vocals. Aerosmith would have been perfect for RB.

The second disappointment is the set list. Sure it contains most of Aerosmith's greatest hits like Dream On, Sweet Emotion, Rag Doll, and Walk This Way (the RUN DMC version by the way - which was a pleasant surprise.) But there was also way-old Aerosmith songs I wasn't too familiar with (No Suprise, Bright Light Fright), and brand new Aerosmith songs I couldn't care less about (Draw the Line, Nobody's Fault). Then there's the non-Aerosmith songs in the game by the Clash, the Cult, Mott the Hoople, Lenny Kravitz, etc..., most of which I wasn't familiar with.

Then that's it. It's over. Six sets with five songs each then it's over after a "Boss Battle" with Joe Perry. Thirty songs, only a little more than half are Aerosmith songs, and the game is done. There are about 10 additional un-lockable songs, but most are Joe Perry songs I've never heard of, and the other are songs I don't really know. It begs the question... where are all the other songs that SHOULD have been put in the game, but were left out? Janie's Got a Gun? I Don't Want to Miss a Thing? My original thought was that these tracks might be available later for download... a smart move from the GH guys. But no. GH has made it clear that there will not be any downloads for this game.

Overall, this game was FAIR. Not poor, and not great. Just fair. For the most part I had fun and enjoyed playing most of the songs. I just wanted more. More options (drums, lyrics) and more songs. GH didn't entirely drop the ball on this one, but they better learn from this. GH:A was almost a monumental mistake, and another dud like this and RB might just wipe GH off the map... at least until GH:Wold Tour is released. But they'll probably screw that one up too.

Schedule some time out of your Comfest day...

to attend Erin's b-day party at the Lodge Bar this Saturday from 7pm to 9pm. Erin's b-day was yesterday(the 23rd) but since we were at the OBX all last week we were unable to celebrate it last weekend. Everyone is invited to join in on the $1.50 pitchers, 1/2 price appetizers, and other specials. I think we are going to head to Comfest before we hit the Lodge Bar. Hope to see you there.

NASCAR 09 DOT Download

For anyone who wants to download and install my Days of Thunder car pack for NASCAR 09, here is the zip archive for all 5 cars.

It's up to you to go to the NASCAR 09 web page and figure out how to upload into your game. I've been trying to upload my cars to my EA locker for three days now with absolutely no success. I've all but given up on trying. If anyone has any luck let me know, and I'll just copy them from your EA locker.

Check Your Credit Report.

This is a good time of year to check your credit report. You better see how much shit is inaccurate. Studies have shown 90% of American's reports are inaccurate. Intentionally. To make sure credit companies can charge higher interest rates. I, for one, have been fighting inaccuracies for 2 years. They have me living in Pataskala when I lived at the pagoda. I've sent them numerous reports saying it's wrong. What did they do...nothing.

"The United States economy is like a poker game where the chips have become concentrated in fewer and fewer hands, and where the other fellows can stay in the game only by borrowing. When their credit runs out the game will stop."

WTF Draft & Play?

I may be the only one left in our league who regularly checks the Draft and Play on After the race on Sunday, I thought for sure that Z had beaten me. On Monday, I went to check the site and found out that I had won. At the time they didn't have the points updated, but the records were up to date. I did some number crunching(mmm do the math) and calculated that I had beaten Z 496 to 490. I proceeded to check the league on Tuesday and they changed it to me losing and Z winning. I looked closer and figured out that since Kyle Busch had to move to the back of the pack at the beginning of the race he only received 2 points for qualifying rather than the 34 points he originally had. It said that Z had beaten me 496 to 470. Well today(Wednesday) I look and they changed it back to me winning 496 to 490. They must have ruled that Kyle got to keep the 34 points that he originally received eventhough he had to move to the back of the pack. Draft and Play has alot of bugs to work out. Should have kept the UFL the way that it was.

Rubbin's Racin'

Well, apparently I was misinformed that NASCAR 09 was being released today. In reality it's tomorrow, so I'll have to wait another day to pick up my game. In the mean time I finalized a few more car designs. Below is the complete Days of Thunder COT pack.

Two More Designs for NASCAR 09

Let me know if anyone else picks up NASCAR 09, and I'll upload my designs so we all (BTBz) can race 'em.

G-Funk! Where Rhythm is Life and Life is Rhythm!

(AP)Rapper Warren G was arrested Sunday on a drug-related charge after police pulled over the car he was riding in.

The 35-year-old rap artist, whose real name is Warren Griffin III, was arrested shortly after 1:30 a.m. Sunday in Hollywood after the car he was a passenger in was pulled over for a red light violation, police said. Marijuana was found inside the vehicle, said police Officer Karen Smith.

Both Griffin and the driver, Ryan Butler, were booked for investigation of possession of a controlled substance. They each posted $20,000 bail and were released.

Attempts to reach Griffin or a representative Sunday night were unsuccessful.

Griffin was nominated for a Grammy in 1995. He also was arrested in 1996 for carrying a loaded assault weapon in his truck.

What I Do For My Wife

Here is my position at Best Buy as I stood in line today to get the Nintendo Wii. After 90 minutes of waiting, I got my Nintendo Wii, as well as Wii Fit, and 360's Ninja Gaiden II. When my wife wants something, she will get it. But I didn't want to wake up this morning to stand in line anywhere; I got a lot to do today.

I got to set this stuff up now, reprogram my remote to work with it, get my hair cut, shave, go out to dinner downtown, and go see Dave Attell tonight. Busy Busy Busy.

NASCAR 09 Available Tuesday

I personally am VERY excited about EA's newest installment of their NASCAR game. Why? NASCAR 09 is offering a unique feature in this year's game that has not been in a game not offered for PC. The "Paint Booth" feature will allow gamers to create their own exclusive paint scheme, upload it to EA, then import it into the console game. This is truly incredible because until now, if you wanted to customize a car (or character, or really anything) in a console game, you had to use their in-game editing tools, which were limited in their abilities at best. If you've ever tried to design a unique car in FORZA, you know what I mean. What EA did this time around is allow gamers like me the ability to use professional programs like Photoshop with infinite design possibilities from the internet (like sponsor logos, pictures, etc...) to design your car, then put it in your game.

I'm not sure whether I'm more excited to play the game, or just to design cars to show-off. I remember a few years ago Papyrus had a PC NASCAR game called Nascar Racing 03. You could customize the car paint-schemes in that game like you can in EA's NASCAR 09. I think I spent more time perfecting my designs for that game than I did actually playing it.

So I've already finished one design. You can pre-view it below. The first pic is the layout that would be designed in Photoshop (EA provides a template to make this easier). The second pic is the 3D view of the car.

For more information, you can check out EA Sports NASCAR 09 web site.

Bush vs. Financial Institutions...Part I

loan to value...a loan that is given to Americans which appraise the value of a home, that once completed, has a value that what it would sell for, at that time. The same accounting technique used by Enron. It's a very ingenious way to get people to keep building. If the interest rate goes up, most people, wealthy or not, will not be able to afford the house they are building anymore. What a gamble.

Credit Card fees have gone up 160% over the past 5 years. Consumer lending is OBSCENELY PROFITABLE. The average American has over $9,200/year in credit card debt and $1,300/year in interest payments. It used to be $15 late payment and over limit fees; now it is upwards of $45 fees. $45 if you are late; $45 if you are over the limit; $90 in fees before you even do anything. And your interest rate is gonna go from 21.9% to 28.9%. SO THEY WANT YOU TO BE LATE!


The number 1 qualification for working at a bank is suggestive selling experience.

Debt buying is the fastest growing industry in America. Last year, investors bought $75 billion of bad debt alone.

We are gullible. We see names like "Bank of America" and Bank This and Bank That that the layman says, "gosh, they are not gonna take advantage of me." Too bad it is just the opposite.

But you say, "why don't they want people to make payments? don't they want the money?" no! They will make money even if they don't pay. how? you ask. A person stops making payments. After 6 months, Federal Laws says that the creditor gets to charge off the non-payment debt. That means they get to charge a card all the late fees, for those 180 days, before they ding your credit report. They "charge off" hundreds, even thousands of dollars, off more of the profit/loss, or PNL, before it hits your report. They will make money off of that because they will, in turn, sell that debt to those bad debt investors.

I will now tell you about a company called PROVIDIAN. Providian Financial intentionally HELD BACK checks until they posted LATE. They even shredded checks. In 2001-2002, Providian paid $400 million to settle charges it defrauded its customers. This was just one of many CORPORATE FRAUDS INSTITUTED ON ON THE AVERAGE AMERICAN.

This prompted President Bush (the current one) to create a judicial task force to go after this corporate greed. Two years after the Providian settlement, President Bush appoints an ethics "czar" to clean up corporate America...

Deputy Attorney General Larry Thompson... WHO WAS...



WAIT FOR IT.................................

HE WAS THE DIRECTOR OF PROVIDIAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bush: A True Chr....I mean American

The Washington Post points out that in the hubbub of the McClellan book, another scathing memoir has come out exposing the TRUTH behind Iraq.

Getting lost in the media furor over McClellan's memoir is the new autobiography of retired Lt. Gen. Ricardo S. Sanchez, the onetime commander of U.S. troops in Iraq, who is scathing in his assessment that the Bush administration "led America into a strategic blunder of historic proportions."

Among the anecdotes in "Wiser in Battle: A Soldier's Story" is an arresting portrait of Bush after four contractors were killed in Fallujah in 2004, triggering a fierce U.S. response that was reportedly egged on by the president.

During a videoconference with his national security team and generals, Sanchez writes, Bush launched into what he described as a "confused" pep talk:

"Kick ass!" he quotes the president as saying. "If somebody tries to stop the march to democracy, we will seek them out and kill them! We must be tougher than hell! This Vietnam stuff, this is not even close. It is a mind-set. We can't send that message. It's an excuse to prepare us for withdrawal."

"There is a series of moments and this is one of them. Our will is being tested, but we are resolute. We have a better way. Stay strong! Stay the course! Kill them! Be confident! Prevail! We are going to wipe them out! We are not blinking!"

A White House spokesman had no comment.

We Are Blackmailing Them?

All throughout Bush's regime, we have heard of Iraq's wanting us to remain in Iraq (and keep those 50 plus U.S. bases operational until the end of time - Biblical Apocalypse ha ha). It turns out Iraq really doesn't want us there. But they are being blackmailed by the Bush Administration into keeping us there. Here's the deal: Through lawsuits (the U.S.'s greatest strength) the U.S. courts have awarded the U.S. 20 billion dollars over the past few years; but the Bush Admin has put a hold on any payments by Iraq; and the Bush Admin has said they would end that protection if the Iraqi's deny any base building in Iraq; and there is 50 billion dollars of Iraqi assets in the U.S. Treasury; it would be very easy for the federal courts to take that money.

Blackmail: another sin committed by that Christian hypocrite.

You Vote For A Christian Meathead....

you're responsible for the mess.

o the housing crisis has nothing to do with the Conservative idea of loosening regulation of the banking market? You learn one thing when letting banks/businesses run free, or deregulated: they will lie cheat and steal to make a buck.

like blocking any legislation during the Clinton Admin to increas oversight of Terrorist money laundering through U.S. banks (the right wing prevented the Federal Government from finding Terrorist money because the banks were making too much money off of it) how hypocritical. Repub Sen Phil Gramm called it a "totalitarian" incursion. Before he retired from the Senate in 2002, he wrote the Gramm-Bliley bill, an act broadly deregulating the financial industry -- and now blamed by many economists for the epidemic of speculation and fraud that has shaken the global economy.

Where is Phil Gramm now? John McCain's economic chair. Since 2002, he has been paid by UBS to lobby for the banking industry. So when people like McCain and Bush say they are drafting legislation to help Americans with the housing problems (i mean disaster), the people who are drafting it are the ones responsible for the deregulation that gave these lenders carte blanche (that means: complete authority) to do whatever the fuck they wanted, with no federal oversight. That is where President Meathead comes in: his administration looked the other way. They are paid by those industries to get elected, they do their bidding.

what does the Conservative media say: it's the borrower's fault for being in debt. so buying a big screen t.v. was the problem. Oh, that keeps it simple. keeps the citizen from really examining the true problem. blaming the borrower is like "she deserved it because she wore that short skirt". Sure we dress like a whore, but that is not justification for rape. lawyer talk: blame the victim. see also: O.J. Simpson Trial, Kobe Bryant Trial, and the trial in that Jodie Foster movie when she was young where she was raped on that pinball machine.

new rule: mortgage lenders should have to put up their own personal money when they make these deals. they don't; they use other's money. maybe they will treat money with more respect then. but all they care about is their commission for making these big, complex adjustable rate mortgages.

isn't funny that during the time when the "economic stimulus package" checks were dispersed, food and gas prices spiked?

what about the lender? well, J.P. Morgan Chase purchased Bear Stearns, a large financial institution with substantial mortgage-backed securities investments that had recently plunged in value. the bigger fish will scoop up the little fish (at a cheaper rate) and the money will still flow UPriver.

see also: Enron, Keating 5.

also, Bush + Bush = Bush
Christian + Meathead = Christian Meathead

simple math, just like the "simple math" done by Enron. Any way to make a dollar (or make people think you are making a dollar)

i am in no part of that crooked industry; that's why I am going to heaven.

Isn't This...

5 years too late.

BTK, have it your way...

Anyone know who the BTK Killer is? He was a serial killer who wreaked havoc around the Wichita, Kansas, area for almost 20 years. What is so special about him? Well, he killed 10 people. He sent letters to police and local media after the murders started occurring boasting of his knowledge of the crimes and his gloating of not getting caught.

BTK stood for Bind, Torture, Kill. Which is what he did to all his victims. But, why you ask, "Why are you bringing him up?"

He was finally caught by technology. DNA was collected in the 70's that wasn't maximized in evidence until the 2000's. Also, computers were more prevalent. He started writing and sending 'floppy discs' to police (after he was assured by police that 'floppy discs' could not be tracked to a single computer - IDIOT). Once the discs were analyzed, they showed the Windows software "Name" and "Organization". Using that information, the police analyzed DNA from the suspect's daughter which tied BTK to her dad.

Why do I bring this up? The "Organization" was Christ Lutheran Church. And the "Name" was the Deacon of the Church.

Once again.... Christians ruin life!!!!

I Guess Not Everyone At O.U....

got drunk constantly. Some do amazing things like "learn" and "seek new evidence" and "uncover facts about Earth's history". 150 million year old footprints...NO! IT'S NOT THAT OLD; THAT IS SCIENCE LYING TO US TO DISCREDIT OUR ARCHAIC ANCESTOR'S TEACHINGS.

if this really happened, pretty cool

this fella named erik nordenankar created "the biggest drawing in the world" supposedly, by sending a GPS unit to 6 continents via DHL, tracking the whole trip. he said he gave specific instruction to DHL, and that is where i'm a bit suspicious. there are a lot of strange loops during the trip route. still, that might explain why a CD i ordered from dubai almost a month ago, still hasn't arrived. DHL is doing publicity stunts with avant-garde artists instead of getting my shite here when i need it.

click on the words on the opening page to go to an explanation of his idea, his path instructions, and a video tracking some of the destinations. if you click on this picture, it'll open in a new window, and click it again for the large version.

Juddy puked, I confirmed it.

Here's a pic from last weekend. On Friday night, Juddy, Chump, and myself were down at the F bar getting plastered as usual. We had to leave early because me, Juddy, and Chug were golfing in the Jack Flanigan Memorial Tournament the next morning. Well Juddy had a reversal of fortune when we got back to his place. He came stumbling down the hall with "puffy cheeks" and a hand over his mouth. He made it to the bathroom, but the hand block couldn't keep the damn from breaking in the dining room. Here's a pic of drunken Juddy(in his boxers no less) cleaning up the floor while Chug supervises the cleanup effort. Sorry for the quality of my camera phone.

If I ever played minor league hockey...

...I would probably have a story just like this.

Stanley Cup Final notes, nuggets and storylines. Good reading material if you have time. Here's my fav:

* Six members of the Pittsburgh Penguins were not born when Chelios made his NHL debut: Jordan Staal (9/10/88), Marc-Andre Fleury (11/28/84), Tyler Kennedy (7/15/86), Kris Letang 4/24/87), Evgeni Malkin (7/31/86) and Sidney Crosby (8/7/87).
