Boomstick

The great quote of the week brought to you by the one and only Bruce Campbell...

"Now listen up, you primitive screwheads. See this? This... is my boomstick! The 12-gauge double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about $109.95. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?"

Six Easy Pieces

So earlier today while browsing some bands on myspace, I ran into an Austin band with the most peculiar name, Six Easy Pieces.

It just so happens that Six Easy Pieces is also a title to one of my favorite books that I’ve owned since my junior year in high school. It is a condensed collection containing the six easiest chapters from Dr. Feynman’s landmark work, Lectures on Physics. These six easy pieces include atoms in motion, basic physics, the relation of physics to other sciences, conservation of energy, the theory of gravitation, and quantum behavior.

He also has a book out that I purchased my senior year in high school, Six Not So Easy Pieces, dealing with vectors, symmetry in physical laws, the special theory of relativity, relativistic energy and momentum, space-time, and curved space. I can’t tell you how handy this book was during college engineering physics.

Dr. Richard Feynman was that rare scientist who excelled in his field and loved to teach others about what he knew. The thing that distinguishes Dr. Feynman from other physics teachers is his incredible ability to simplify complex and seemingly unintuitive physical phenomena and make them a little more understandable.

Dr. Feynman died in 1988, but his works made such a huge impact on me when I first read them. I was so pumped-up and just plain enthusiastic about physics, especially in high school… oh how I wished I could have attended one of his lectures. Hell, I still do wish I could have!

Anyway, I’m finished with my little tangent that all started with an Austin band’s name that brought back some wonderful memories.

Fabulous

I can’t say that the last 24 hours have been eventful, but rather interesting…

After I got off of work for the day yesterday evening, I came home to get something eat (because I’m always freaking hungry) and change. I headed back to work to paint a new kiosk that we made for the front of the store (long boring story on why we have the new kiosk, so I won’t go into that.)

Sean and I went to Home Depot to purchase some spray paint for this little project, red and yellow. I figured that I could easily do some spray painting without fucking up my clothes… I was wrong (All I hear is now Obi-Wan’s voice echoing in my mind… “I took it upon myself to train him as a Jedi. I thought that I could instruct him just as well as Yoda. I was wrong.”)

I got paint all over my new Monster Squad shirt, on my favorite pair of jeans, and on my shoes. My grandfather helped me get the paint off my shirt and almost completely off my jeans (using WD40)… despite our best efforts, the shoes could not be saved. I guess that’s fine… I now have a reason to get some new ones that I’ve been wanting for awhile now. Only problem is that they aren’t offered anywhere in the US, so I have to order them online. I’m always weary of ordering any kind of clothing online simply because I can’t try anything on.

Anyway, everything still smells like WD40… that is until this morning!!! I went back to work briefly to finish up with the kiosk (looks fantastic btw)… then I came home to take a quick shower before going out to get some groceries. I was in a huge hurry for no apparent reason. I didn’t dry myself off very well, and I went to use my hairdryer… I have never received an electrical shock like the one I got this morning!!!

I can’t even really describe the way it felt. The most I can say is that it really hurt and I could swear it stopped my heart for like five seconds. For the next hour or so, all I could smell was burnt hair… though I can’t find any burnt hair, so it may be burnt flesh or something. I guess I should feel lucky that the shock didn’t ignite the fumes of the WD40… but I’m actually just happier that I don’t smell that WD40 crap anymore. It was starting to give me a headache!

WTF Is Wrong With Me?

I honestly don't know how many times I've seen this over the last year, but I every time I watch it, I can't help but laugh my ass off! What's more is the fact that it isn't even really that funny. It is so ridiculously slap-stick, it should just be plain insulting to watch.

David Bowie - Underground


No one can blame you,
For walking away.
Too much rejection, (na na)
No love injection. (na na)
Life can be easy,
It's not always swell.
Don't tell me truth hurts, little girl,
'Cause it hurts like hell.
But down in the underground,
You'll find someone true.
Down in the underground,
A land serene,
A crystal moon, ah, ah.

It's only forever,
Not long at all.
Lost and lonely,
That's underground.
Underground.

Daddy, daddy, get me out of here.
Ha ha i'm underground.
Heard about a place today.
Where nothing never hurts again.
Daddy, daddy, get me out of here
Ah ha i'm underground.
Sister sister, please take me down.
Ah ah i'm underground.
Daddy, daddy, get me out of here.

I heard this song on XM today, and it reminded me of how much I really enjoyed this song and all the others on Labyrinth. What is this song about… it’s about suicide. Granted it takes on an entirely new meaning when placed in the movie that it is in, but nonetheless the song is about a lonely soul’s, constantly plagued by depression and rejection, contemplation of suicide and how its effects are irreversible. Ironically, the song actually sounds very hopeful and uplifting, negating the lyrics of the song. So full of wonderful absurdity!

“It’s only forever… not long at all.” This is a fine example of some sort of weird-ass paradox… an optimistic pessimism (or pessimistic optimism, can’t decide on which.) As many know, I love paradoxes and absurdities… not just because they are odd, but because they are so incredibly prevalent in everything, everyday, everywhere. Most people just seem to overlook these precious gifts that make life so interesting!

Enough about the song… I’d rather briefly discuss the movie and its inherent ironies and absurdities. First off, a brief overview of the movie for those who have never seen it. This is a classic 80’s movie that I vividly remember watching as a child. It tells of how a girl could no longer stand her life and wishes for goblins to take away her screaming baby brother… she must then journey to rescue him in a strange land (The Labyrinth) ruled by the king of the goblins. What’s not to like? Hell, it’s even produced by mastermind George Lucas (in his prime before he went psycho and arguably fubar’d the prequels to his wonderful masterpiece Star Wars.)

Over the years and after viewing it countless times, I’ve come to the conclusion that Labyrinth is clearly a symbolic tale of a young girl's acceptance of her sexuality. Unfortunately this take on the movie is completely overshadowed by David Bowie’s bulging penis sheathed in spandex. Honestly, his protruding penis should be listed first on the opening credits of the movie as it’s prominently featured in nearly all of his scenes… the penis explicitly steals the show. Labyrinth is definitely chock full 'o cock.

So my question… how did this movie ever get a PG rating? This is considered a “family” movie. This movie is completely overrun by sexual innuendo and pretty damn explicit imagery (in my opinion, all the elements necessary to be at the top of my movie list… which in all fairness is probably why I love it so much!)

Brian & Stewie Stoned

How is it that drug induced states of consciousness can bring such clarity to just about anything? (Note: This is simply a rhetorical question… obviously any kind of drug induced state will have some sort of effect on the way the mind functions!)

Anytime when I take medication (not a pain killer, rather a triptan that activates serotonin receptors) to alleviate a terrible migraine, I usually have an incredibly heightened state of awareness for several hours. It’s like being awaken into a new state of existence that is always truly there hiding in the shroud of reality.

Anyway, here's a funny little clip of such a phenomenon demonstrated by Stewie!

Batman: Dead End

I've seen my share of "fan films." For the execption of special effects, most are pretty awesome films (hell, many even have great effects at that!) A great place to find these fan films is at TheForce.net. There are tons of them there!!!

Here's a badass Batman fan film I've come across. Very interesting. It's only about 8 minutes long, so if you have the time I highly recommend that you give it a quick view. Quick bit about the fan film: Batman faces an old nemesis and the greatest challenge of his life.

Back Online!

Got the internet back up and running at home. It turns out that I only needed to buy a new dsl modem, new ethernet cables, a new ethernet card, and trash my router. When everything was finally said and done, the connection was restored!

Anyway earlier this morning at work, I noticed Gilles watching some seriously crazy-ass shit up in the office. Take a look for yourself!

Soooooo... until my dsl connection is back up and running (God only knows when that'll occur), my posting will be temporarily limited as I now only have access to the internet at work. Hopefully Monday or Tuesday, everything will be restored to normal. Ad praesens ova cras pullis sunt meliora!

Lasciate Ogne Speranza, Voi Ch'Intrate

My DVD collection has been a bore lately. I feel I’ve over-watched everything I’ve got, which I have. I desperately need to get some new ones, but nothing good is coming out anytime soon. Nothing! Absolutely nothing. Nothing even remotely interesting.

So for the last several nights before bed, I’ve been rereading one of my favorite books that I haven’t even touched since high school… The Divine Comedy. I should probably clarify that I only really enjoy the cantos of "Inferno" and "Purgatorio." "Paradiso" is great too, but it lacks the most intriguing character of the combined collection, Virgil.

I’m sure that anyone who’s read the book can clearly see that Virgil is supposed to be a very noble and wise character. He knows the way through Hell and can act as Dante’s knowledgeable guide while he struggles alongside Dante when they enter Purgatory together for the first time.

It’s often discussed in school that Virgil is an allegorical representation of human reason… both in its immense power and in its inferiority to faith in God. But that’s not what I find interesting about him in this book. What’s best about him, most unique about his character to me, is that he seems to be comically sadistic.

Virgil praises Dante for an outburst of temper, yet at other times he criticizes him for not being compassionate enough. It seems that Virgil, despite his piercing moral clarity, seems puzzled at times… or is he? I think he truly enjoys seeing those suffer who he feels deserve it.

Maybe that’s just my own bizarre and twisted view, but I honestly feel this guy gets off on how hell tortures people. I don’t think Dante intended Virgil to come across in this manner, though I think it makes the story much more entertaining and witty. Does anyone else see that, or is it just me?

Anyway, I'm noticing some things about the "Inferno" I hadn't noticed before… or if I had, I'd forgotten them, which is just as good. For one thing, hard as it is to believe, I had never particularly noticed how each circle of Hell (with the exception of the outer circle, Limbo) has its own guardian, something that, in video game circles, remind me of an "sub-boss." Minos stands guard over Circle 2 (the Lustful), and has the great pleasure of informing sinners which level they've been condemned to. Cerberus stands guard over Circle 3 (the Gluttons); Plutus over Circle 4 (the Greedy and the Wasteful); Phegyas over Circle 5 (the Angry). At that point they come to the walls of the City of Dis, the barricade that separates the not-so-bad sinners they've encountered so far and the really bad sinners who follow. Once inside, the way opened for them by an unnamed angel, they find Circle 6 (the Heretics). The first round of Circle 7 (Violence against others) is guarded by the Minotaur; the second (Violence against self) by the Harpies.

Coming Soon To A DVD Shelf Near You

As stated in Jennifer’s recent post, The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. is finally arriving to DVD on July 18… one of my most favorite TV shows of all time.

The saga begins simply enough when one of the greatest lawmen the West has ever known, U.S. Marshal Brisco County, Sr., is killed on a train by outlaw John Bly and his evil Gang of 12. The Marshal's son, Brisco County, Jr., a Harvard law graduate, is hired as an unlikely bounty hunter by the members of San Francisco's Westerfield Club to track down the outlaws. Brisco straps on his father's gun belt with its famed ivory-handled six-shooter, which he handles better than a western trick star, and never looks back.

Brisco, ably assisted by Comet the Wonder Horse (who has more intelligence than most people), meets a variety of friends and foes as he pursues his goal and also stumbles onto an incredible legend… the tale of a supernatural golden glowing orb that bestows unimaginable powers on the person who possesses it. Brisco soon realizes that Bly will stop at nothing to obtain the orb and wield it for his own evil purposes.

Bruce Campbell is absolutely perfectly cast for the role of Brisco County Jr. He brought a warm, human depth to the character along with an inside wink to the audience underscoring all of life's wonderful absurdities. He also gave straight deliveries of puns laced with sexual and non-sexual overtones.

This show is definitely a cult classic series! It was highly underrated during its run on FOX on a Friday night timeslot… certain death for any TV series good or bad. Truly an awesome show! A definite must see for anyone who never caught it!

Whether or not you ever had the opportunity to enjoy the show, many people don’t realize that the show’s theme song is now used all over the place, particularly on several sports events. I’m sure you’ve heard it before!

The Monster Squad

Tomorrow evening, Easter Sunday, I’ll be attending an Alamo Drafthouse special viewing of the 80’s cult classic The Monster Squad. Film director Fred Dekker will be attending the event with a few of the actors from the movie. I haven’t seen this movie in years, but I remember vividly enjoying it for the first time back in 1987 (I was 7 years old at that time living in Midland, TX.)

The effects (and dialogue for that matter) are pretty outdated now, but the monster makeup is classically cartoonish and overall just plain fun! The movie is overrun with memorable one-liners, i.e. Horace’s/Fat Kid’s classic line, “Wolfman's got nards!”

Other scenes were quite fun and memorable, especially to a kid watching this back in the 80’s. The montage where the Monster Squad prepares to do battle by sharpening stakes, making silver bullets, and developing nude pictures of Patrick’s sister was pretty cool when I was a kid, and I’m sure it’ll have the same effect today.

The acting isn’t bad at all, just a bit remedial which makes it a true cult classic example of an 80’s monster-movie that took nothing too seriously. Overall, I’d call it a fun B-movie which carries on the tradition of the old monster movies of the 50’s! I’m still anxiously waiting for it to be released on DVD!

For those of you who have seen and enjoyed this movie, I have a special treat for you! I give you the cheesy funny Monster Squad theme song played during the end credits!

The Great Lion

In rereading The Magician’s Nephew, book 6 of 7 in The Chronicles of Narnia, I realize how much I truly enjoy the character of Aslan. His character is so paradoxical… so simple and yet complex, very original and also quite stereotyped.

To think that a lion created the magical land of Narnia and the creatures that inhabit it is quite odd. In doing so, Aslan is the original and true king of Naria, even above all high kings of Naria throughout the entire saga. I tend to think that it’s unusual for an animal, such as a lion, to be the creator of a world. In most stories, this is left up to a god-like figure that is more human than anything else.


His character, in my opinion, becomes much less imaginative with all the parallels he has with Christ… in The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe he essentially dies for the sins of man (Edmund), yet rises from the dead to defeat evil… in The Last Battle, the saga concludes with Aslan stepping in to bring Narnia to an end… he judges all the creatures and beings of Narnia; those who were true to him pass through the doors into the “true and perfect” Narnia (heaven), while those who have opposed or deserted him do not pass through the door… the fate of those left behind is uncertain.

Even his personality is contradictory. He’s all powerful and all knowing, yet he still has a vulnerability to him. He can be hurt, both emotionally and physically. His paradoxical persona makes his being a lion is most suitable. He’s a truly awesome symbol of goodness, yet he is still to be feared. Throughout the series, it is often repeated that Aslan is "not a tame lion", since, despite his gentle and loving nature, he is powerful and can be dangerous.

XM Adds To Their Line-Up

Starting on Monday, April 17, XM Satellite Radio will add 8 more commercial-free music channels. The new channels include:
I know I certainly won't be listening to channels 17 (I know I live in Texas, but I can't stand country music) or 34 (same goes for this one too... I'm just a southerner who really doesn't like gospel music), but the rest sound pretty cool.

Best Two Minutes Of Episode One

What makes this clip so great is the fact that it cuts out all the crap from The Phantom Menace and just leaves the best parts! So... for those few people in the world who haven't seen the movie, you're great in luck! This is all you really need to see!

Brian McKnight & Vanessa Williams - Love Is



They say it’s a river, that circles the earth
A beam of light shining to the edge of the universe
It conquers all, it changes everything

They say it’s a blessing, they say it’s a gift
They say it’s a miracle
And I believe that it is
It conquers all, but it’s a mystery

Love breaks your heart
Love takes no less than everything
Love makes it hard
And it fades away so easily

In this world we’ve created
In this place that we live
In the blink of an eye the darkness slips in
Love lights the world
Unites the lovers for eternity

Love breaks the chains
Love aches for everyone of us
Love takes the tears and the pain, and it turns it in-
To the beauty that remains

Look at this place
It was paradise, but now it’s dying
I’ll pray forlove
I’ll take my chances that it’s not too late

Love breaks your heart
Love takes no less than everything
Love makes it hard
And fades away so easily

Oh oh oh

Love breaks the chains
Love aches for everyone of us
Love takes the tears and the pain, and it turns it in-
To the beauty that remains
Before I even begin discussing this song, I’d first like to note that I finally found a great internet music player to play some of my mp3’s. Last night I was tweaking the player for my myspace profile. The songs on myspace are quite limited and are on a flakey (at best) server. I uploaded this player and my own music to my much more reliable personal server, and am now able to play music anyway I see fit quite easily. So starting now and in the future, I’ll be adding the actual music to the song lyrics for anyone who would like to listen to the song.

On with the subject at hand… I find this song particularly intriguing lately due to a bad break up one of my friends is going though (I won’t mention her name to protect her privacy.) She is one of the best people I know. She’s incredibly caring and compassionate; she has such a tender heart and beautiful soul; she’s also amazingly gorgeous! She’s really every straight guy’s dream come true!

Without going into too much detail about the specifics, this guy has been desperately after her for several months. I personally have always thought this guy to be a complete jack-ass and overall fuck-up (of which I’ve made sure to constantly remind my lovely friend of.)

For the longest time, she wasn’t interested at all. She had turned him down countless times, but the jack-ass kept pushing. While I was away and out of the picture last month (at the store from hell), she finally gave in. She decided to give this jack-ass a shot! I don’t know what the hell she was thinking, but it’s her life, and she’s got the right to do with it as she pleases.

After a short time, she actually starts to like the guy (from my observation, she probably fell in love with the feeling of being wanted and not really him… he is a jack-ass and fuck-up after all!) Anyway, this douche bag (not to offend any actual bags of douche) broke up with her via a cell phone text message. She was devastated. He won’t talk her, etc…

Just like the lyrics of this song, love conquers all… when love breaks your heart, it takes no less than everything. It shocked me that she turns to me for comfort… I am an expert on the subject of being heart-broken, but I’m certainly not a good source for coping with it.

What hurts me the most about this situation is that her confidence has been shaken quite badly. When I hear her say ridiculous things such as she’s not good enough for anyone, or she doesn’t have anything to offer anyone, or she’s not capable of being loved… I hear the echoes in my mind telling me the same thing. For her, I know it’s not true. She is so wonderful… she truly is what most guys want, but don’t deserve. She just allowed herself to get into a poor situation with a jack-ass who is a coward! My mind on the other hand, telling me the same things… I don’t know. It may be true; it might not. The jury is still out on that one.

Needless to say, I’m vehemently angry with this jack-ass at the moment. I can’t describe the self control it takes to maintain a calm composure around this guy when I really want to deck him! He's lucky I don't go Bruce Banner on his ass!

Car Ride


Skeletor Day

Very much like James McAvoy Day, I've decided to make today Skeletor Day. Why Skeletor? Dunno really. Just thought I choose someone fictional for this round!


Skeletor, supposedly from the dimension of Infinita, is a blue-skinned, skull-faced warlord who rules the dark side of Eternia from Snake Mountain. He learned his black magic from Hordak, the powerful warlord of Eternia's sister planet Etheria and arch-nemesis of She-Ra, of whom he was once the second-in-command. Skeletor, being the bad-ass he truly is, betrayed Hordak after his forces were defeated, and the two have been bitter enemies ever since.


Skeletor possesses an array of mystic powers that seem to vary depending on the whims of the particular writer using him at the time. He is usually armed with a magical weapon called the Havoc Staff; a pole crowned with a small replica of a ram's skull. He can discharge bolts of mystic force from the head of the staff. Sometimes Skeletor has displayed the ability to discharge energy from his own body. In the early mini-comics (not the animated series) Skeletor sometimes possessed one of the halves of the power sword (He-Man’s sword) from which he could also project magic energies. He also has the ability to teleport himself and others over vast distances, send telepathic commands to his minions, open gateways between dimensions or perform remote viewing. He has also shown himself to be a gifted swordsman. As a master of the mystic arts he is also privy to much secret knowledge about the universe.


In an attempt to explain his bare skull, some fans have suggested that Skeletor may be an undead fantasy creature called lich due to the fact that he died or came close to it, only to have his mortal body healed kept alive in an inhuman state by dark magic.

Return To Dune


I've been re-reading some of my Dune books over the last couple weeks for comfort. Among the primary influences that have drawn me into the world of Dune in the past are the simple themes throughout the stories. Even more fascinating though is when you discover the paradox of each message. The simple ones have a deep complexity, and the complicated ones are actually very simplistic.
“To know the future is to be trapped by it.”
If you believe certain words, you believe their hidden arguments. When you believe something is right or wrong, true or false, you believe the assumptions in the words which express the arguments. Such assumptions are often full of holes, but remain most precious to the convinced.

Strange Movie

I went to go see Slither late last night with Josh down at the Gateway Theater. To be honest, I still don’t know what to think about that movie. The only real reason either of us wanted to see the movie was because Nathan Fillion was in it, as we’re both huge fans!


Click Here For Quicktime Trailer

Anyway, the movie was just bizarre! It very much reminded me of Shaun of the Dead, though the language was much more hardcore in this movie... made it pretty damn funny! It was just plain weird too! Overall I really enjoyed it, although I don’t know whether I’d really recommend it. I feel it’s just too weird for the mainstream. It was one of the strangest movies I’ve seen in quite some time!

So after the movie ended, and we made our way out of the theater through the main lobby which was completely dead! The lights were off, and there wasn’t a single person there. The theater was completely empty! It looked as if they had already closed the place down for the night but forgot that we were still in there watching the weird movie. It was like something from out of the Twilight Zone! It was so odd… just an added bonus to the incredibly weird movie we had just experienced!

Unusual Fact About Me

I consume on average 5 gallons of milk every seven days. That’s approximately ¾ of a gallon daily. This is about 15% of my total grocery bill. Of the 4500 calories that I intake on a daily basis, about 1200 of it is from milk (over 25%.)

I frequently tell people that I don’t know how I would live if I ever became lactose intolerant. Most of the time I get a snide little chuckle in return… but I think that’s because people just don’t realize how much milk I really do consume. It’s a ridiculous amount!

My mom and my sister Kristy were making fun of me the other day when I stopped by to visit after being at the gym, and I drank nearly ½ a gallon of milk in less than a 2 hour span of time. Hell, I can’t help it! That’s what my body wants!

I recently found that it’s recommend that people drink 250ml (.06 gallons) of milk each day. I drink 1250% of that recommended value!

Back In Black

So as fate would have it, I’m back at my old store as of yesterday. I can’t describe how overjoyed I am about this move!!! All these people I had to painfully say goodbye to just a month ago are back in my life on a full time basis! It’s wonderful! That’s really the most important thing I wanted to say. Just wanted to get that out! I've just been on the top of the world the last two days over this miracle!!!

On to another subject… last night, Josh and I went to go see Thank You For Smoking… a movie about a lobbyist for the tobacco industry. Not surprising at all, the movie was great! Absolutely hilarious and even eye opening to an extent. For the major exception of directly/indirectly killing some 12,000+ a day, this lobbyist’s job is very similar to what Josh and I do for a living, which only made the movie that much more meaningful to me! This movie is a must see; I highly recommend it!
