bg/ish: World Cup Fever – Gol! Gol! Gol!

I’m getting World Cup fever. Literally counting down the days… So, I’ll be posting some moments of World Cup brilliance here, trying to pass it on…

Let’s start with Argentina in 2006. Maybe the best “team goal” in World Cup history. 24 passes, a cheeky back heel, and a splendid strike by Cambiasso. Enjoy.

bg/ish: A Century For 20th Century Man

So, I’ve been obsessed with tumblr lately. Eventually I’d like to move the pub there. At any rate, I just hit 100 posts on my new tumblr, 20th Century Man. So, now that there’s some content to page through, check it out. Follow it. Love it. Or, whatever…

Hey Art, go fuck yourself. Contra Costa has plenty of other problems to deal with.

bg/ish: State of the Union

ag’s boy Obama is giving the annual State of the Union address tonight. Propaganda ensues.

As for me, I throw these things out there every now and then. It certainly seemed fitting today. Silly me though, I pissed all my good content away today in previous posts…

This post will be disappointing at best.

I’m going to be an uncle soon. Any day now. Which is to say, my brother is going to be a father. It’s exciting. I’m basically on-call, waiting to make my way down to Southern Cal. I’m looking forward to seeing my family. Hopefully I will see some old friends. I’m ready. Just waiting on you now Elle. C’mon!

I feel like I’m suffering from a lack of creative outlets right now. There’s just so much I want to do. I feel like I need to do. I’d like to be writing more, but working all day is more of an atmosphere conducive to things like blogging. I’m dying to do something musically, and I’m frustrated that right now I don’t have the equipment or the chee$e to buy it. My old roommate kind of screwed me over because he said he was going to leave some older equipment he wasn’t using for me to use when he moved out, but then he went back on that. I don’t want to make excuses, but I really want to do shit.

I’ve also been thinking more lately about filming a short. ag and I have discussed this in the past. So maybe when he’s done with school I can kidnap him for a couple of weeks and we can do something.

In the meantime, I think I’ll need to pick up the camera a bit more.

Chewie goes under the knife tomorrow. Losing the lady parts. I guess I’m a bit nervous. Trying not to think about it. I’m sure she’ll be fine. She’s just the sweetest fucking thing and I hate to think of her suffering at all. Unless of course I’m verbally berating her or punching her in the face. Jokes.

Here’s a recent shot I took of her with Kristen’s new 50mm lens…


* * * * *

Fact is, for the most part, things are great. Kristen and I are settling into the apartment. She is such a pleasure to be around, I’m lucky to wake up next to her everyday.

As for this nation of ours? Well, I’d hate to be Obama tonight. What do you say? War, Recession, Millions without health insurance… It’s not all good. I doubt I’ll even watch…

agIsh: Spider-Hombre

This video is kinda stupid but also is kinda cool at the same time. 1) Why would you do that to your ceiling? 2) Well, since it’s there, might as well try to use it all the time and have fun with it?

bg/ish: Culture Clash

Last week a friend of mine who happens to be from Taiwan forwarded me an e-mail that, well, quite frankly, was highly offensive. For me to say that, you know it was some shit.

The subject and body of the e-mail were in Chinese characters, so I essentially opened it blindly. What I found in the body of the email were photo attachments showing some Chinese people preparing and then eating a human fetus, approximately 6-7 months old.

Apparently, the purpose of the email was to expose the practice of eating unborn children and condemn it and blah blah blah IT WAS A FUCKING HUMAN FETUS BEING EATEN IN SOUP!

Sorry.

At any rate, worry not, none of those filthy images will be reproduced on this site.

My initial reaction was to IM the person who sent me the e-mail with the mandantory, “Um, what the FUCK was that?!?” Of course, none of their explanations or justifications were in any way socially acceptable. At least not to me. I mean, I was raised in the US, and you know the old adage about “two things you never talk about, politics and religion”…

..well, you could probably expand that to “three things you never talk about” and add ABORTION to that list, because in my experience, people aren’t really comfortable talking about abortions, let alone talking about eating an unborn human fetus…

…let alone forwarding pictures of some mad Chinese people PREPARING AND EATING A HUMAN FETUS!

(Unless of course it’s that South Park episode about stem cell research, where Cartman starts dealing in fetuses, and Christopher Reeves eats them like fucking melons… yeah, that shit was HILARIOUS. But I digress…)

So y’know, I just chalked it up to culture clash, Taiwanese rage against Chinese, or whatever. I saw the pictures, I was disgusted, I moved on.

But!…

Today when looking through Google Labs applications I came across a translator that integrates directly with GMail. So, I guess my whole point is that, I went back and translated that email. For me, hilarity ensued…

Here is the text of that e-mail, courtesy of Google translator:

Look at my mouthful acidic water, it’s horrible! How some people have the heart to do such a cruel thing is clear that they do not understand the so-called bad mood cause of severe, or prefer to find mistresses, they must refuse to brutal killing of innocent young lives ah!

Apart from making money whether the loss of humanity? Human has been reduced to Makai?

Let us look at some forward post. Severe punishment of those animals. Health. Must let the top know that in China there is such a thing!!!!!!! Tears. Pray for those innocent babies. At the same time curse. Curse those damn animals. Health eternity shall not be condemned to hell do not, fall into the seamless way. Prison!!!!!!! If there is a conscience, please forward.

Dongguan, where people are eating. People, “baby. Child soup” on the table, utterly devoid of conscience! ! See there is no human animals. Health.

Actually… this isn’t very funny at all. Kind of stupid really.

Fucking aye…
