Elmwood Festival of Arts Sat.

On Saturday I went to go Pick out a New Suit, I like it and hope it will look ok on me, we shall see. On my way I made a quick trip through Elmwood Festival of the arts.

Well After I came Back I went back to the festival and had a good time. When I got Hungry I ran into (e:vincent) and we had a good time.


image

image

image

image

image

image

image

image

image

image

Hanging with (e:Vincent) was a good time and looking at art and people watching.

It is hard to explain how that Peanut Butter cup Smoothie tasted it was both great and odd all at the same time but very good.

As We where moving towards the Village Area we saw Shoe fly


image
I'm still not sure what happened 100% but I felt a big Umph on my back not sure if it was someone or one of the legs on that tent. I was fine but (e:Vincent) went down for the count, If the Camera was still open I may have got a picture of it but it happened so fast and some other lady hit her head. Hear are some pictures of the after math.



image

image

So There was Micheal Meldrum performing and he had a couple people up there with him and then they performed by themselves and had him help them out so here are a few shots of them. I think the one chick was pretty Hot.

image

image

image

image

image

image

Even with the Tent thing it was still a good time. On our ways home (e:vincent) stopped to help some people park, that was awesome, you could tell they where really having a tough time.

Not sure how good of a story Teller I Am but I think you get the Jist

Technoir on Friday

So Many Blogs to write and so little time. Well the first one is of pictures from Diablo on Friday. I Really need my own computer or a laptop or something, that way I can up load pictures and download them and like watch TV at the same time. Hey Imagine if like some chick wanted me to take pictures and put them on some like site that allows nude or semi nudes when would I have the time? I don't have the time now and it is almost football season oh well. Had a great time Friday.

Friday ?

So I'm not sure what I will do Completely with my day off:

1. Sleep In, that will feel so good , I hope
2. Try to get a suit, not sure what I like but hoping I see something and it says that is the one
3. Want to get a movie in also I would love to see District 9 and maybe get in a second one also not really sure
4. I Pretty Sure I will Skip Wrestling and Bill Maher. I want to go check out Club Diablo for that TechNoir Fashion show. Going to try and drink and take pictures could get interesting. Not sure how well my camera works in a dark place and how to get good pictures yet.

Oh yeah it is the weekend for me, awesome. By the way this weekend is the Elmwood Festival Of The Arts or what ever it is called, I have to at least go On Saturday for some time, we shall see what goes down on Friday. I at the least have to get a Solar Smoothie oh it was so good last year. Last year I didn't get Lucky and see any great like random dancing come out of no where I think the Year before I caught a bunch of it though. Who knows maybe I'll even buy some art?

The Fair Animals

So since I have been going to the fair it usually Works out that there are a couple grand stand shows I want to see. Well this year that changed and when the Ultimate Night Of Destruction was I didn't think would work out. So I went to the fair again Yesterday. This time I took my pictures in a smaller size so I think they should up load I did a little test in my previous post. My Camera Battery didn't last the entire trip again it stopped during the Peeking Acrobats. When I got Home I watched two Pretty good movies on Cable. Max Payne was wild but a pretty good action movie with a story line. The next movie I got a little bit lost on but still really enjoyed RockNRolla it was a Guy Richie picture and even with being lost it was pretty good.

Well here are a bunch of pictures from what I saw at the Fair.

Well Just wanted to add that the Nickel City Exotics is I think the best deal. It is $1 and there are all those animals. Granted it isn't a show so you never know they might not be awake. When I first went in the Lemur was just relaxing and so was a couple other animals but they moved around some before I left. The Survle forget about that he or she was very relaxed but I'm pretty sure they hunt at night anyways so and the ring tailed lemur was sleeping to. In any event that part of the fair was pretty cool.

Well I'm not sure how that came out until I hit post. I had a good time and it was nice to see a bunch of Animals. I also had a lot of fun last Saturday also. I just wish I could find a way to take a batch of pictures and resize them all but I can't so for now the ones on here from last week will have to do on my other post. Congrats if you made it to the bottom. Double congrats if you make it through my webshots photo album.

On the way to the fair

Well Here are some of the pictures from me on my way to the fair on Saturday. The trip from last week I could never find a way to take a bunch of pictures and resize them all at the same time so I gave up.

The Fair and odd software

Well this time a shrunk some pictures of the fair, I also put some up on my facebook page but haven't had time to put them up on my webshots page hopefully they show up. I can't wait to see (e:tinypliny)'s pictures and I think (e:theecarey) took some also.

On a side note this software is strange. I found where It saves the pictures under my pictures but then you have a 2009 folder and then under that it breaks it down by date but then when I save the pictures I edit it puts each picture in its own folder at the same level as 2009, it is very odd. You would think that a camera company would have the software make more sense.

I think I will go back on Saturday and take more pictures and they will be smaller and hopefully I don't have to go through this again.

Tiger Pictures

So I really like my new Camera but learning the software is odd. It was a great time at the fair with (e:Vincent) and (e:Tinypliny) and then later meeting up with (e:Theecarey) oh it really was a great time.


Well this is a test also to see if the pictures show up there must be a better way of doing it then how it does it to look them up.


Well it stopped responding so lets see what publish brings me

Saturday Peterazzi hits the Fair

Well if anyone cares (I still think sometimes that no one reads this) (and if anyone does that they don't care). I don't know why I feel that way sometimes. The Peterazzi bought a new camera that was a bit more then he planed but it is water Prof and freeze prof and dust prof. Not sure how true that is. It wasn't the really costly ones but was more then the one I thought I was going to get. So I guess the plane is first to find out how to charge the battery and hope that is like an overnight thing. Then Wake up in the morning and find his way to the Fair and see what happens and see how the pictures come out and maybe they will get posted on Sunday we shall see what happens.

The Fair?

So this weekend District 9 opens and I really want to see it. Maybe I'll go see it Sunday will it play Downtown? But Saturday I want to go to Erie County Fair also known as America's Fair and I heard at one time it was called the Hamburg Fair. The Bus Demolition got moved to Thursday and doesn't start til 8pm so Not sure I would make it home so I won't be going to that this year. Yes there are New Things Like there is a Tiger Show, that I have to see. Then there is some kind of like Sea Lion show or something that would be nice, and then you can buy stuff and eat Fried Foods, it is all ways a good time. The only down side is I have to decide what to do about my Camera. I wish I had the money to get one of those really good Water Cameras. They have cheaper ones. I wonder how the zoom works so that no water gets in? I do have a non digital one maybe I could try that one out, it has been so long though. Then I have an Advantax one again here it has been a long time. Both of those would need a test. The odd thing is though to put those pictures on line you need to get a disc for each roll of film, that seems odd. I could go get a cheap Camera (saw one at Office Max add that doesn't look to bad) but then, on the other hand I would love to get one with like a 5 or 6x Optical zoom. I have to make my mind up quick Sat. Morning will be here quick.

War On Drugs?



The Above link leads to a story on Yahoo about re looking at the war on drugs. I think at the least everyone can agree that the war on drugs isn't working. If any of you read my previous post one of the points that I made is that I don't think when it comes to drug Policy anyone in politics can be honest about what should really be done about drugs. I think in our country we all ways fight things the wrong way. People think that having sex with women on the street for money is wrong so they lock up Hookers and Johns and Pimps. Well here is an Idea why not help people so that when something is wrong in there relationship they can talk to their partner instead of trolling the street for pussy. Or if they are single why not work on making meeting people real instead of everyone playing games. If you made it so no one needed to buy sex on the street, guess what it would go away and the same thing can be said with drugs. But see if you taught people that then no one would buy Beer, Cigs, or scrips for mood or behavior altering drugs and those companies would also never let that happen. But maybe I'm wrong maybe when people re look at this then they will figure out some answers and be honest and move in a new direction.


Well here is the story for those that don't want to follow the link.

By Rafael Pardo and Juan Gabriel Tokatlian Rafael Pardo And Juan Gabriel Tokatlian - Tue Aug 11, 5:00 am ET

Bogotá, Colombia; and Buenos Aires - On Monday, President Obama restated his support for Mexican President Felipe Calderón's aggressive tactics in the fight against drug trafficking. He also reiterated his support for a drug security plan with Mexico that is similar to the failed drug plans of past administrations.

Before Washington ramps up yet another losing war on drugs, it should take a clear-eyed look at how its current strategies are affecting the supply and demand of drugs. Congressman Eliot Engel (D) of New York has introduced a bill to do just that.

Washington would be wise to back Congressman Engel's initiative because there has not been a thorough, frank evaluation of the fight against drugs in decades. The drug czar office's annual report is not enough. Recommendations by an independent commission, however, could generate the consensus and strategy we sorely need.

The cornerstone of US drug policy at home and abroad is to reduce the drug supply (from crop eradication to border seizures) in order to increase the domestic price of drugs. The idea is to deter both potential consumers and producers from entering the drug market.

It hasn't.

Since May 1971, when President Richard Nixon proclaimed a "war on drugs," Washington and the Western Hemisphere have been unable to win it. Every claimed victory has turned out to be, in the end, a fiasco.

Consider Mexico and Jamaica in the 1970s and early '80s. Mexico cracked down on marijuana production. But that simply shifted production to Colombia and then to the US, while allowing heroin production and cocaine trafficking to rise. Jamaica's effort against marijuana similarly backfired and today, drug-related violence is at a high.

Colombia has been the most high-profile, high-stakes test case of the hemisphere's struggle against drugs.

A decade ago, the Clinton administration launched the multiyear, billion-dollar Plan Colombia.

The Bush administration then expanded Plan Colombia and provided even more funding.

With those funds, Bogotá has spent the past 10 years eradicating illicit crops over an area that is 2-1/2 times the size of the state of Delaware. It has extradited more than 600 Colombian nationals to the United States. It has dismantled the large, brutal, Medellín and Cali cartels; has criminalized all the phases of this illicit business; and has launched an attack on both guerrillas and paramilitary-linked drug emporiums.

And yet, after all that, production of cocaine in Colombia actually increased, and the drug network remains intact.

So why is the Obama administration extending a similar plan - the Mérida Initiative - for Mexico?

Plan Colombia didn't work for a number of reasons. It was based on a lopsided policy of shared responsibility that did not work in this case. The emphasis was on supply control and not on demand reduction. Wwhat good does cutting back on cocoa leaf production do if there are still people addicted and willing to pay high sums for cocaine? It relied too heavily on short-term benchmarks instead of long term implications. Then there were the negative effects on human rights, civil-military relations, the environment, and the rule of law - all very fragile in Latin America.

If Mr. Obama intends to avoid a potentially catastrophic scenario in a bordering country, then he should support Engel's initiative. The establishment of a Western Hemisphere Commission could be a rather inexpensive, short study. The commission would be required to submit recommendations on future US drug policy to Congress, the secretary of State, and the director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy 12 months after its first meeting.

Gathering the reports and analysis and putting the minds together of leading experts from the Americas, nongovernmental organizations, policymakers, and the media would produce a more nuanced understanding of the situation. It is only by analyzing our current and past problems that we can make true progress now.

Rafael Pardo is a former Colombian senator and defense minister. He is the current Liberal party nominee for president in the 2010 election. Juan Gabriel Tokatlian is a professor of international relations at the Universidad Di Tella in Argentina.
