Before I begin, you should know that everything the media has ever said about me is a lie. I was never a stalker of Stephen King, was never barred from visiting Bangor, Maine, was not present at times and dates alleged by King in some incidents I've heard about and I was completely set up by King and the corrupt City of Santa Cruz and chief Stephen Belcher when I was arrested, and put on the national news
including two showings on American Journal, for showing up at a booksigning with a sign that read;
"STEPHEN KING IS A MURDERER; IT'S TRUE OR HE'D SUE "
The truth about John Lennon's Murder.
I have been trying to stay away from politics for a while, but this is going too far.
Six months after he spoke on an aircraft carrier deck under a banner proclaiming "Mission Accomplished," President Bush disavowed any connection with the war message.
When it was brought up again Tuesday at a news conference, Bush said, "The `Mission Accomplished' sign, of course, was put up by the members of the USS Abraham Lincoln, saying that their mission was accomplished."
I guess at the next press conference he is going to say that he wasn't wearing a flight suit...
Shin Hanga literally means New Prints. It was an art movement for a new style of Japanese prints from about 1910 until ca. 1960. Shin Hanga took the art of ukiyo-e to a new renaissance.

The end of the world
The whole day seemed like the end of the world was coming. The sky was orange and ash was raining down. You could see the sun, but it was weak, straining to be seen though the smoke.
This evening it started to clear and it seemed to be getting back to normal. But now the Santa Ana winds have kicked in and they have brought acrid smell of fire with them.
We are probably 50 miles from the nearest fire. I can hardly imagine what hell the people in San Bernardino are experiencing.

I have been an [INSERT COMPANY NAME] customer since [Insert Date], when I signed up for your 3-in-one deal for cable TV, cable modem, and telephone.
During this three-month period I have encountered inadequacy of service which I had not previously considered possible, as well as ignorance and stupidity of monolithic proportions.
Please allow me to provide specific details, so that you can either pursue your professional prerogative, and seek to rectify these difficulties - or more likely (I suspect) so that you can have some entertaining reading material as you while away the working day smoking B&H and drinking vendor-coffee on the bog in your office:
My initial installation was cancelled without warning or notice, resulting in my spending an entire Saturday sitting on my fat arse waiting for your technician to arrive.
When he did not arrive at all, I spent a further 57 minutes listening to your infuriating hold music, and the even more annoying Scottish robot woman telling me to look at your helpful website.... how?
I alleviated the boredom to some small degree by playing with my testicles for a few minutes - an activity at which you are no-doubt both familiar and highly adept.

The Church of Spock of Latter-Day Science Officers
� We believe in the existence of a "Holy Trinity," comprised of Spock (The Vulcan), James T. Kirk (The Captain) and Leonard McCoy (The Holy Doctor). Seperately, they represent important pieces of the human spirit; combined, they form the omnipotent core of our existence.
� The journeys and experiences of The Holy Trinity make up what we call Gospel � the 79 books of The Original Testament and the 6 books of The Motion Pictures. (Some choose to debate the validity of the fifth book of Motion Pictures; it is not our intention to argue this point from either side on this site.)
� With good, however, also comes the existence of evil. The Church of Spock also acknowledges the existence of a sinister being known as the Anti-Spock: a goatteed figure living in a cruel place where tormented souls are tortured and destroyed with little discretion.

People who have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) experience recurrent, unpleasant thoughts (obsessions) and feel driven to perform certain acts over and over again (compulsions). Although sufferers usually recognize that the obsessions and compulsions are senseless or excessive, the symptoms of OCD often prove difficult to control without proper treatment. Obsessions and compulsions are not pleasurable; on the contrary, they, are a source of distress. The following questions are designed to help people determine if they have symptoms of OCD and could benefit from professional help.

Listen to songs of the Chosen Surfers at Meshugga Beach Party!
Hava Nagila sounds great as a surf tune. I would imagine that Dick Dale's version is even better, though.
The following movies are criminally underrated:
Last Action Hero (VHS | DVD) - Arnold at his self-depreciating best. You get gratuitous catch phrases, danny de vito as the voice of a cartoon cat and a wonderful Bergman homage.
Hudson Hawk (VHS | DVD) - Bruce Willis as a singing cat burglar. It is really a hell of a lot better than that makes it sound. High points include the Pope watching Mr. Ed, a ball chomping dog and learning what Italian security guards eat for lunch.
The Chase (VHS) - Charlie Sheen, in a comic masterpiece that is not available on DVD, stars in an epic road movie that lets us into the psyche of a troubled young man. Wrongly accused of a crime, he goes on the lam by carjacking Kristy Swanson. Antics include Henry Rollins as a cop being filmed for "COPS", Anthony Keidis and Flea as morons with a monster truck and a demonstration of how to use a car lighter as a weapon. Did I mention Kristy Swanson is in this?

Gwyneth Paltrow, 31, was killed late last evening in a tragic car accident on La Brea Avenue in Los Angeles. Paltrow was reportedly returning home from an intimate dinner party with friends when a late model sedan veered over the center line and struck the driver�s side of her 2003 Toyota Prius. Paltrow, revered for her acting talent and graceful beauty, will be dearly missed by her mother Blythe Danner and fianc�e Chris Martin. The driver of the other vehicle is currently in critical condition at Beverly Hills General Hospital.

Gimme a coke
The great pop vs. soda debate.
As an aside, my neck is now fully red. Besides liking NASCAR and The Mullets tv show, I see from that site that "coke" is the generic used primarily in the South. To further this line of thinking, I am listening to a lot of country music again. "What Was I Thinkin'" and "Celebrity" are great songs.
Maybe some travelling hillbillies had a baby in the same hospital the day I was born and I was switched.
