Henry Rollins Last Night

Well first of all I ran into someone who I haven't seen in a long time at last nights show, it was nice to see and talk to you again. In terms of the show it is hard to describe what was talked about it is kinda something you have to see. I think most of what he said was new but did connect with some stuff he talked about last year. I liked his take on W. not only person but the movie also and he also talked about his dad and Clinton. I liked that he talked politics and said people should vote but said he wouldn't say who to vote for or who he voted for. But it wasn't all political some of it was like about all the stuff you have to watch before a movie and he talked about how Kid Rock has a song trying to get people to join the military. Some of his traveling stories where pretty interesting. I will admit I liked last years show better then this years but it was still a pretty good time this year. I think this cold is messing with my memory because there was at least another thing he talked about that I wanted to get into but can't remember. Hopefully this doesn't interfear with me at the party on Firday night, I plan to take the peterazzi to a whole new level once I get the settings down on the camera for (e:pmt)'s place.. Sorry I can't tell the story better I did such a good job telling it last year.

Zack and Miir make a porno

So on Friday Kevin Smith's newest movie comes out "Zack & Miri make a porno". It looks like it could be pretty good. I'm hoping that I have time to go see it On Saturday, or who knows if I will even be in good enough shape to make it to a movie. I will admit I am a Kevin Smith fan so I must go see it.





the first time the video didn't show up from youtube but I kinda forgot how to do that.

November is Spy Month I say

The reason I'm calling November spy month is for two reasons, well I guess it is really one reason. Before 24 returns in January they are having a two hour special called 24 Redemption it looks like it will be pretty good on Sunday Nov. 23. Then also this month the new James Bond movie opens. Yeah some people might say Bond who cares any more. I will admit that I liked the old style with all the rockets and stunts that where over the top even for movies. I also liked the more recent bonds of Pierce better then this new Bond. That being said I do like that they have gone in this other direction, and not that I have read the books. But from what I have heard these movies are closer to the books then how the previous movies have been. I think what will make this newest movie interesting is that it is the first Bond Sequel and so that might be interesting to see how that plays out. I don't know if Daniel Craig will be in what ever the next movie they do after the current one. The reason I say that is because I was watching one of the features on Casino Royale and they said that they didn't use Pierce because with this being the story of how bond becomes bond they needed someone younger. See I haven't even seen the newest one and I'm jumping a head. I'm hoping it will be very good, we shall see.

Henry Rollins Spoken word

So I'm looking forward to Wends. I'm going to see Henry Rollins. He won't be singing or dancing or well maybe he will be you never know, but it is for spoken word not music. I'm thinking maybe head downtown from work and treat myself to some drinks and a nice meal at say T.G.I fridays but I have to double check the time. I don't know how to say what spoken word is other then that he tells stories, at some point of the story it leads into another story. Hey sometimes someone mentions something and then to know what that is you need another story. Some of it is funny and some of it is political and yes he does have merch. for sale so you can buy other spoken word tours. I'm hoping it really good this year like it was last year. I have never seen him do a question and answer thing it isn't like an Evening with Kevin smith but some aspects are the same. Yes you can disagree with his political views and still have a good time at the town ballroom.

Assassination plot broken

So I went onto Yahoo to read my mail and I saw this article that I had to read and re post below. From what I understand these two skinheads where going to try and Kill Barack even though they thought they might not get away with it and they might even die doing so. That is really some heavy hate. They never got to the attack stage so we don't know if it is really true, and maybe they are taking the fall for a larger movement who knows what is really going on. If you read the article maybe you'll have the same question I did why not go after Barrack 1st, what if you first attacks don't work. I don't think they would have ever gotten close to Obama. That being said it still seems like this isn't the entire story. Yeah this is a lot of hate, I know I have some sterotypes that I fight with sometimes but I'm glad I'm no where near as bad as these guys are. I hate to say it but I don't think this will be the last attempt either.



Assassination plot targeting Obama disrupted




By LARA JAKES JORDAN, Associated Press Writer Lara Jakes Jordan, Associated Press Writer


WASHINGTON - Law enforcement agents have broken up a plot by two neo-Nazi skinheads to assassinate Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and shoot or decapitate 88 black people, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives said Monday.

In court records unsealed Monday in U.S. District Court in Jackson, Tenn., federal agents said they disrupted plans to rob a gun store and target a predominantly African-American high school in a murder spree that was to begin in Tennessee. Agents said the skinheads did not identify the school by name.

Jim Cavanaugh, special agent in charge of ATF's Nashville field office, said the two men planned to kill 88 people, including 14 African-Americans by beheading. The numbers 88 and 14 are symbolic in the white supremacist community.

The men also sought to go on a national killing spree after the Tennessee murders, with Obama as its final target, Cavanaugh told The Associated Press.

"They said that would be their last, final act - that they would attempt to kill Sen. Obama," Cavanaugh said. "They didn't believe they would be able to do it, but that they would get killed trying."

An Obama spokeswoman traveling with the senator in Pennsylvania had no immediate comment.

The men, Daniel Cowart, 20, of Bells, Tenn., and Paul Schlesselman 18, of Helena-West Helena, Ark., are being held without bond. Agents seized a rifle, a sawed-off shotgun and three pistols from the men when they were arrested. Authorities alleged the two men were preparing to break into a gun shop to steal more.

The two men were arrested Oct. 22 by the Crockett County, Tenn., Sheriff's Office. "Once we arrested the defendants and suspected they had violated federal law, we immediately contacted federal authorities," said Crockett County Sheriff Troy Klyce.

Attorney Joe Byrd, who has been hired to represent Cowart, did not immediately return a call seeking comment Monday. Messages left on two phone numbers listed under Cowart's name were not immediately returned.

No telephone number for Schlesselman in Helena-West Helena could be found immediately.

Cowart and Schlesselman are charged with possessing an unregistered firearm, conspiring to steal firearms from a federally licensed gun dealer, and threatening a candidate for president.

The investigation is continuing, and more charges are possible, Cavanaugh said.

The court records say Cowart and Schlesselman also bought nylon rope and ski masks to use in a robbery or home invasion to fund their spree, during which they allegedly planned to go from state to state and kill people.

For the Obama plot, the legal documents show, Cowart and Schlesselman "planned to drive their vehicle as fast as they could toward Obama shooting at him from the windows."

"Both individuals stated they would dress in all white tuxedos and wear top hats during the assassination attempt," the court complaint states. "Both individuals further stated they knew they would and were willing to die during this attempt."

Cavanaugh said there's no evidence - so far - that others were willing to assist Cowart and Schlesselman with the plot.

He said authorities took the threats very seriously.

"They seemed determined to do it," Cavanaugh said. "Even if they were just to try it, it would be a trail of tears around the South."

The court documents say the two men met about a month ago on the Internet and found common ground in their shared "white power" and "skinhead" philosophy.

The numbers 14 and 88 are symbols in skinhead culture, referring to a 14-word phrase attributed to an imprisoned white supremacist: "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children" and to the eighth letter of the alphabet, H. Two "8"s or "H"s stand for "Heil Hitler."

Helena-West Helena, on the Mississippi River in east Arkansas' Delta, is in one of the nation's poorest regions, trailing even parts of Appalachia in its standard of living. Police Chief Fred Fielder said he had never heard of Schlesselman.

However, the reported threat of attacking a school filled with black students worried Fielder. Helena-West Helena, with a population of 12,200, is 66 percent black. "Predominantly black school, take your pick," he said.

Bi sexual and gay sterotypes

So a little while back (e:Lauren) wrote a pretty interesting post about this rent a negro site ans some how in the comments there was talk about how guys ask or say stupid things to bisexual women and lesbians. I will admit I wanted to write this post at the time but didn't really have the time and the correct words to use I think I might now. I'm not defending sterotypes and not saying they are good I'm just trying to show a view point from a mans perspective.

First of all I'm not a women so I can't imagine what it is like to be one, let alone to be bisexual or a lesbian. I think that the little bit of knowledge I do have is like most men's is flawed most likely.

I do think that the watching of porn does effect how men think of bisexual women. For example last night I caught part of this great movie there was this really sexy naked Asian girl with amazing breasts making out with this pretty tiny breasted white girl. So this guy is watching and he is getting turned on and then he goes and joins in. In this movie they don't show any dick. See that is a lot of guys fantasy two hot girls making out and them either watching it or taking part in it. See that makes sense for a lot of guys not only do they get to see one girl they get to see two and they don't have to see any cock (some guys don't want to see any so all they watch is girl on girl). It also gives the perspective on TV that you are watching it. I know it is only TV but I think stuff like that can enforce the male fantasy weather it is soft core or hardcore. In porn there are some girls who really do like other girls and then there are girls who are "gay for pay" meaning they don't like girls but do the scenes to get paid better or for the money. When watching a scene us guys don't think about this and I do think it does affect how we think of girls who are bisexual or lesbians (not the same but often viewed as the same incorrectly).

The Jerry Springer aspect. Yes it used to be a guilty pleasure of mine I will admit. I'm not only blaming him I'm sure there are other shows that only show the crazy side of people. But on even though at the end of the show he would have final thoughts and they were pretty good, I still think that what you saw over powered his thoughts at the end. The show was often about cheating and so when ever someone cheated on their partner with someone of the same sex as them it made everyone who is bisexual look like a slut. Some one would all ways say that just because you like both sexes doesn't mean that you should be with one person of each sex at the same time. I think shows like that can effect how people think about other people.

I'm not blaming TV and entertainment really even though it sounds like it, I'm more saying that I think it might help reinforce other ideas people may all ready have.

I don't know where I have heard my sterotypes but I know I have heard some. Like that lesbians hate men and are mean. Hey maybe some of them do but I doubt they all do. Yes I have heard that Bisexual girls are sluts. I don't believe that and the 1st lady that I knew was bisexual wasn't she had boy friends and girl friends but not at the same time from what she told me. Not that I would call someone a slut but some people are sluts and some are men some are women and some are stright, bi and gay that doesn't mean being bi makes you a slut.

Again I don't know where I have heard this stuff I really don't. I have heard that there are butch lesbians and fem lesbians and that only fems and butch lesbians will be with each other. Again I wouldn't know but that doesn't seem right. Why couldn't two pretty girls be together.


I'm sure lesbians and Bi sexual girls get a lot of stupid questions but I think most of them is because guys have this fantasy view of women's sexuality or just don't get it.

I think the thing with steroypes is they often don't make sense for anyone and you hear different ones that don't make sense. For example the typical one for blacks is that they love Watermelon and fried chicken. That makes no sense everyone likes friend chicken and besides that is more of a southern thing. I have heard people not use the right short hand for Asians. Like they order chinesse food and call it gook food, that would be koreans and the steroype of them is that they all have nail salons not that they sell you cat for dinner.

I think the reason sterotypes work is that there is a small amount of truth in them but just because they are true sometimes for some people doesn't mean they are completely true. But when you don't know anyone who fits those sterotypes then you don't have anything to disprove any of them. I think that leads to when you meet someone you might ask or say some stupid things, Ok that is the end my rant time to go watch the pregame then the Bills and later the Steelers. This was more of way of venting for myself really but if I said anything stupid let me know.

Coupons for digital converter box

First of all I'm so tired of this mess with Time Warner and channel 4. I do have a set of rabbit ears that attach to my old TV. But it dawned on me today that I need to go to dtvanswers.com that lead me to dtv2009.com or something like that and then I filled out an application to get two coupons for those digital converter box things. Yes I do have cable so my TVs should be covered that is what I keep hearing on all the ads. But there is a slight problem to get Channel 4 I use rabbit ears so come Feb 17th or when ever that is I wouldn't be able to get that station anymore. Some might say well by then this problem could all be worked out, but see it takes time to get get the coupons and then once you get them you only have 90 days to use them. So if I don't go and do it now when I'm thinking about it the problem doesn't get solved it could be to late. My Rabbit ears are the old school kind that have flat pieces that slide into screws on the back of a TV, I wonder if they will work with the boxes I Need to get. Maybe I should go to Time Warner and pick up their free Rabbit ears. It might be kinda tough though since I saw the times and they are only really available at times when I'm working, argghhhhhhhhhhh. Well I guess we shall see.

Sons of Anarchy +

So I will admit I like FX channel. It is the cable version of fox. They used to have some repeats of fox shows like they used to re show 24. At the time it was a pretty good idea, if you miss one episode you could really get behind so it was a good way to keep viewers. Currently I'm watching Sons Of Anarchy it is about a bike gang and it is pretty good I think. I seem to all ways miss It allways Sunny in Philadelphia. I haven't tried yet but i guess you can watch it from their site I'm not sure when new episodes will be on, I know you can watch mini episodes of rescue me through that site also. That is really a good show.

This morning On HBO I missed the first few minutes of Section 60:Arlington National Cemetery. I don't know how to describe it, maybe it is sad, moving, or just a look into the memories people have of people who die in war. I'm not going to try to politicize it but this side of the story isn't thought about when we all are talking about if we should go to war, and that we are in the wrong country and all of that. I found the show a little hard to watch but it is something that should be watched.

More fun stuff so tonight on HBO at 11pm is Cathouse : Manage A Trois that looks like it should be a lot of fun to watch. Will it all be sex I doubt it but it could be lots of it. The only thing I wish was that on that show they would not blur out the mans dick when it is hard. I mean we know they are fucking but no dick. Not sure why that is I know showtime won't show erect dick either. Maybe they fear that men won't watch then, or maybe that would make it porn and there are legal reasons not sure really should still be pretty good. Yes I like my porn hard core for those who are wondering.

NBC tonight is replaying the 3 episodes of SNL live on Thursday tonight for those who haven't seen them that might be something to watch and then after the news SNL is live or as they say on the site all new, yes the music band is Coldplay, I love coldplay by the way in the "Stright world" that makes you a fag or gay. Well it doesn't really but people say that it does. That reminds me tonight I need to think out and write out that blog about that. Most blogs I write are right out of my head but that one needs to be written down really.

I lost my train of thought so hope everyone has a great weekend.

SNL Live Bush

So Last night I got to watch SNL live on Thursday and thought it was good. (to watch the entire thing). The high lite to me was the opening. Will Farrell played George W. Bush I thought it was awesome, with out giving to much away he endorse Palin (Tina Fey) and McCain who can't be found but is brought onto stag, I again thought it was great.
