the casa

Yeah the Sabres lost last night but they play on wends and I hopefully will catch the end of it Have a Graduation to go to. But 24 was really good and Had a very powerfull ending. But the other Day (e:ladycroft) mentioned a painting she got for the new place and it got me thinking about maybe posting pictures of art and other posters I have in my Apt. I know everybody has differant styles of how they like there place to look and I think I may do that, but I have to either re Size the pictures I have wich I may or retake them as smaller pics. I also have to double check my posts and make sure I havn't done that before. Take care all.

Farie Car Add

First of all I'm not sure where this post is going to go exactly so I hope no one is offendend by it. I don't want anybody to think that Its a personal attack on anyones lifestyle cause it isn't I just about to maybe go on a rant.

For those of you who havn't seen it on TV or at the movies. There is this add with this little fly farie and she like turns an above ground subway into a little toy train. Then she attacks this vechile over and over and can't change it into anything and get knocked into a wall. There is this guy walking his attack dog and says "Silly Litte Farie" Then she hits him with the pixie dust from her wand and he is now with 3 little podles has a striped shirt on a sweeter tied around his neck. I myself find it funny that this guy mocks this cool little farie and then she takes it out on him cause he deserves it. Well someone at work who has seen the add was a little pissed. I guess he saw it again and they took out the "Silly Little Faire" line. He said that Gays must have complaind so they took out the line. But I wonder if strights complained. Some strights hate gay jokes and find gays repulsive. So I guess the add offendend some one.

I admit I havn't seen the add yet with out the line. But here is the part that burns me up. When you make a commerical that is funny and has a joke in it someone is going to find it offensive. If you are willing to put something in that might upset people then you should have the balls to keep it in. Like that great Nike commerical where the Serial Killer is chasing some girl like in the movies and she escapes because she has Nikes on. But some women found it offensive. Why it was a movie killer not a real killer. So nike pulled the add, Fucking pussies. Everytime something offends someone you can't just pull or alter the ad. There are exceptions to this. For example if the ad was made to offend or if it was really writen out of hate.

Here is another thing I don't get why not just cut out the end and not have the guys clothes and dogs change, he still points at her and is changed so the joke is still the same.

Guitars for hope

For Infromation where you can see and even bid on these guitars you can check out www.guitarsforhope.org

I thought then when I could I should show the outside of the building the guitars are in. I started out at the Adams mark. I have to admit at first since I was by my self entering A hotel I felt a little strange but no body bothered me or even said a word to me, well except a cop out side the buffalo Holding center when I took a picture of the Staler towers and the BAC that was odd. The next spot was the Hampton Inn, man that place looks fancy. The pictures I took are good but to really see the details of the pics you have to see it in person. Then It was off to the Hyatt (my sis worked there for a little bit). I should have looked around more and explored the downstairs but I was kinda short on time. The picture of the Blue Guitar is where I went Next it was inside the visiter center of the Market Arcade. Not sure of all the ones I've seen so far the one that I like the most. But the one in Sheas box office is preaty dam cool with all the buildings and what look to be a Tie. Not sure if the letters are notes to a song or if they spell something out I couldn't figure that part out. The White Guitar is from Hyatts on Main street near the medical Campus. With the Sabres coming on I didn't have time to Make it to Roswell, I think they have a guitar in a lobby somewhare and I didn't make it to The art Muesum either oh well.

I thought I would also include a picture of my New look of (e:strip). There are a few things that I can't figure out how to change but i still think it looks preaty cool. So I did the hospice walk and took some pictures of Buffalo Maybe I'll post them and I also went to New World Records and bought some more CDs. On my way back to pick up my pictures at Rite Aid (there are a few cuties who work there) I Noticed a Guitar that I didn't Know or forgot was there. It was in the thrift shop on Elmwood. Granted there is some reflection on the pic but I think this one might be the most oringal one I've seen so far. I think they are all original but this one goes that extra step. It is a guitar dressed up in clothes like a person and then is holding a guitar. It is kinda like when in a TV show they acknolwge the audiance or sometimes even that it is a TV show and I like that aspect of it. I'm thinking I may go up to the Falls next weekend if it is nice. One I would like to ride the Maid of the Mist and there are 2 other guitars up there I belive. Plus I havn't been to The Hard Rock Cafe' in some time. But who knows some of that may depend on the sabres, I think they are a night game but not sure, assuming they don't sweep.

Sat Sabres

I havn't downloaded the pictures yet but I took some more pictures from the Guitars for Hope in Buffalo Today. Even though it was cold it was still nice to get to walk around Downtown and I just made it home in time to miss only about a minute of the Sabres Game. Sabres won that is great. Plus it was a fun game to watch. Tonight I want to watch Batman Begins. I thought it was verry good when I saw it at the show. I like how gritty it is if that is the right word. I'm looking forward to the new Superman movie it looks like it may be verry good also. X3 also looks like it will be a good movie. I think X-mens lose of Brian Singer is supermans gain but we shall see. I'm sure both will do great at the box office and be verry good movies. I'm doing the hospice walk on sunday. It is good to do but is also kinda depressing in a way that I don't know how to explain. Hope everone has had a great weekend so far and enjoys the rest of it.

giving $ or time

I think giving to charties is a good thing. I think it is amazing that people can volunteer for walks and races and give there time. I think that is a lot tougher then doing a walk or race and just giving money. That sounds kinda negative but that isn't the way I'm saying it. I just think to give lots of time must be tough. I also think giving to a charity is something that everyone plans to do more of then they wind up doing. For those of you who want to help Roswell I think that is great. Some people like myself will be doing the Hospice Walk on Sunday. The Music Is Art Festival in June supports a few charities. I try to spread the word of the Guitars for Hope. Hopefully I have time on Saturday or maybe even friday to take some more pictures of some of the Guitars. I may put a couple more pictures into the chat window. I don't have enough money to bid on any of the guitars but hopefully when they are all on display I will go see them.

Tattoo Pics

I think that I have a good variety of pictures of differant neat looking tattoos that I found online. I can't really say what tats I've seen and online are my favorite. Yes is it art and how it looks is how it looks. But we don't know the meaning behind the art. Are the names people in the family or did they die. Is the devil just a picture or does it represent the temptation and is a reminder to not go that route. I assume that all of these tats are legit and arn't photo shoped. I remember (e:soyen) used to have a picture that I saw of a dragon tattoo on some guys dick and I've seen some cat tattoos near ladies snatch but I allways assumed those where fake. So when ever you see them on line it is hard to tell. I also decided to go with no nudes or porn pictures of tats. Hope you enjoy them.

Sweet and Sour Sports

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY !!!!!


I went to the Bandits game yesterday and to some of the pregame party thing they had. About Face was doing cover songs, I don't know if they have original stuff or not. There was Hot Dogs and Draft Beer not a fan of either really. I waited till the rain stoped to go so I didn't stay outside to long, it was great out side weather wise. The intro to the game was a little differant but cool they had multiple bag pipers and then introduced the team right out on the field. After introductions the camara guys where waiting around and a Bandit came ridding out on a White Horse with a Bandits Flag that was preaty cool. I don't think that was the first time this has been done but I think it has been a long time since this has been done for the bandits. My assment of the game might change a little bit after I watch the game (I taped it last night). But I think the Refs did a really bad job. If "chugger" would have played better in Goal it might not have Mattered, but he didn't seem to be his regular self. The game in terms of scoring started out slow and Colorado scored first and then wound up getting a lead. I give buffalo credit wee fought back and it looked like we where on a comback and that we had a chance, but then we took a dumb penality that killed our momentum. In the end it didn't look like a close game at all and Colorado won the championship. Two other things that hurt us was that the Mamoth scored a short Handend Goal and we didn't get a goal on that powerplay. There was also a Major 5 minute penality that colorado got 2 or 3 goals during I can't remember. Not sure why but Tavares was out of the game for a good portion of time. I'm interested to read the news and get there take on the game and see if I see it the same way they did.
Oh Yeah there Goalie Nash was great in Net, if I remeber correctly he didn't play when we beat them in the regular season.

Well I went hoime dejected, and thinking about what should have been. When I got home I put on the SAbres game and caught the end of the 3rd period and then got to see them win in OT. That was an awesome goal. The Sabres elimanted Ottawa and advance to the Eastern Finals or the Stantley Cup Championship Semi Finals depending on how you look at the turnament. There opponent hasn't been determined yet it will either be New Jersy or Carolina I belive should be a great series.

After Mothers day I may post some pics from around town and the LAX game. Today I belive it is off to Co-op to buy plants to to lunch somewhare and then off to se Mi:III . My mother wants to see it and seeing it for a second time would be cool.

Video game death

Here is an interesting Story about The power of video games, or maybe it is just BS I will give my thoughts after it and would like to hear others thoughts about what happend, if some of them are gamers that would be cool. Got this from USA Today.

By Joe McDonald, The Associated Press
BEIJING - The parents of a 13-year-old Chinese boy who they say jumped to his death from a tall building after playing one of the popular Warcraft online games for 36 hours straight are suing its Chinese distributor, a news report said Friday.
Zhang Xiaoyi died on Dec. 27, 2004, leaving behind a suicide note saying he wanted "to join the heroes of the game he worshipped," the official Xinhua News Agency reported.

It said Zhang's parents, who live in Tianjin, just east of Beijing, are seeking 100,000 yuan ($12,500) from Aomeisoft, the Chinese distributor of Warcraft: Orcs and Humans.

The suit says Aomeisoft failed to include a warning that the game's U.S. maker rates it as suitable only for players above age 13, according to Xinhua.

The Warcraft games are made by Blizzard Entertainment, a unit of Paris-based Vivendi Universal SA. Xinhua said a Tianjin court rejected a claim by the parents against the game maker.

The vice president of Aomeisoft, Bai Jie, told The Associated Press that he saw news reports about the lawsuit but that the company hasn't received any official court notice.

Bai said Zhang's parents were suing the wrong company, because Aomeisoft was set up in August, eight months after his death. Bai said he didn't know which distributor sold the game in 2004.

China has 111 million Internet users, second only to the United States. It is one of the world's biggest markets for online games, with tens of millions of players, many of whom hunker down for hours in front of PCs in public Internet cafes.

But the government has expressed concern about the violence and sexual content of some games. It has imposed curfews and time limits on children in Internet cafes and banned them near schools.

Also Friday, a newspaper said the Beijing city government has launched a review of the Chinese capital's 1,007 licensed Internet cafes to ensure they are complying with rules on admitting minors.

Violators could lose their licenses, the China Daily said.

In 2004, China shut down thousands of Internet cafes nationwide after a series of fatal fires and other accidents.

Xinhua said Zhang played at a "game hall," but didn't say whether that was an Internet cafe, which would have been required to limit his time there to a few hours.

Several cities have clinics to treat what psychiatrists have dubbed "Internet addiction" in users, many of them children and teenagers, who play online games or surf the Web for days at a time.

Specialists at a Beijing hospital examined Zhang's diary, school records and suicide note and concluded that "Zhang had excessively indulged in unhealthy games and contracted serious Internet addiction before his death," Xinhua reported.

His parents' suit also calls on the distributor to put a warning on the game's packaging saying "playing games excessively harms health," the report said.

Bai, the Aomeisoft executive, said the company plans to add "anti-addiction warnings" to future games.

The Warcraft games have 2.5 million players in China, with copies in more than 100,000 Internet cafes, Vivendi Universal chairman Jean-Bernard Levy told reporters in Shanghai in April.

I admit that I have never played Video games that where made for online gaming, so I don't know from first hand experience if they are really addicting. But I have seen some people really get addicted or at least play Role Playing games for a long time stright and have heard of really long sesions , some times skiping food and bathroom breaks for a day.

I took a computer class at Canisius and the teacher admited that when he was first on the internet it was verry addicting. He admited that he would often lose track of time and hours and hours would pass and he had no clue, so he would have a clock and limit his time. If the net is addicting to some people and so is the game that could be a bad combo. I have seen a documentary show about some gamers and some of them will play for a day stright. I know I have done the same thing as my teacher before. Chat rooms and IM's are great for that.

Just because some one is addicted to a game dosn't mean that they would jump out a window but it could cause it. But the real question is who's fault is it. Did anyone not do something they should have like limit hours of use some how or have a warning. Or did some do something they shouldn't have done like make the game addicting and run tests to make it so people don't want to stop playing.

Being addicted to something is techniquely only labeled addiction by defination when there is a problem. For example if I came home and Smoked weed and turned on comedy cental it wouldn't be an addiction even if I did it every day. It wouldn't be and addiction untill that behavior caused problems. For example If cable goes out I freak out or can't go to work the next day cause I'm to messed up. I think that most things that are addicting arn't to most people. But that there is a small amount of people who will get addicted to them. I also belive that most addicts can't blame the thing they are addicted to. It isn't its fault it is that they have an addictive personality. One proff of this is often addicts switch drugs: they kick Coke or alcohol then pick up smoking.

However there is another factor and that is the character factor. Sometimes being a character can change your out look and you can start to think like the character and belive you are them. I know that sounds crazzy. But I do remember when there where Dungeons and Dragons suicides. Peoples characters would die and they couldn't handle it and they would kill them selves since they where so invovled in the game. There is a term in the wrestling Business for something simalar when a wrestler starts to belive he is the character they play. They play that role on TV then when they are in public they are recongnized and stay in charcter (or they used to atleast) and they sord of become that guy. I also heard an Interview with Bill Goldberg once and he said that Getting into character was easy, he just kinda flipped a switch, but he was so intense from being that other person that it took him a couple to a few hours to wind down and go back to being himself. So maybe the parents of this kid might have a case.
