This blog has moved

I haven't figured out how to (if I can) move the old posts over, but I have given up on this busted blogger. I have found something much MUCH better.

Crazy Ol' Mel Gibson

The same man who brought you "The Passion of the Christ" has financed and directed a film called "Apocalypto" that takes place during the collapse of the Mayan civilization. It's going to come out on December 8th, but there's already a teaser and a theatrical trailer. Although Mel isn't in the film, he makes a one-frame cameo in the teaser at the 1 minute 46 second mark. Yup, he's still nuts.

Slimming Effect built into digital camera

Slimming Photos with HP Digital Camerashttp://hurtyelbow.typepad.com/hurtyelbow/2006/09/slimming_photos.html

The paparazzi has been exploiting this slimming feature and other HP image effects for months on their photos of Kate Moss (Cocaine Residue Effect), Pete Doherty (Random Syringe Effect), and Kate Bosworth (Nipple Slip Effect).

This is a real thing... though the picture is faked.

George Carlin is "The Modern Man"

God's gift to women

This is a funny Craig's List posting. I wouldn't read it at work. Let me rub your boobs :) Seriously though, Craig's List destroys all the hope I have for humanity.

Clean Graffiti

This guy "selectively cleans" dirt off walls to form graffiti. The legality of it is in question... the city still has to pay money to remove the graffiti, but shouldn't it have done that anyway to remove the dirt?

THAT'S a euphemism

Am just checking in with the good ol' blog. Katie's group name etymology is interesting: whatever website that is that said Zeus "came upon" Leda in the form of a swan was being delicate. Or maybe "came upon" was meant literally. Either way, it was pretty embarrasing to see an original work of art from ancient Greece depicting this mythological sexual encounter while on vacation with my family, only to have Eddie Marritz point it out and take a close up picture of it. Honestly. This was what the Marritz family saw: http://www.vroma.org/images/mcmanus_images/leda.jpg And don't forget the dirty Yeats poem detailing the same encounter: http://www.online-literature.com/yeats/865/ I think my name takes the embarrasment cake. (To mix metaphors.)

WOW! What do our names mean!?!!?!?!?

For those who care. I really hope mine means "torture." DEMETRIUS Usage: Ancient Greek (Latinized) Latinized form of the Greek name Δημητριος (Demetrios), which was derived from the name of the Greek goddess DEMETER (1). Kings of Macedon and the Seleucid kingdom have had this name. This was also the name of several early saints including a Saint Demetrius who was martyred in the 4th century. LEDA Usage: Greek Mythology Other Scripts: Ληδα (Ancient Greek) Possibly means "woman" from Greek. In Greek myth she was the mother of Castor, Pollux and Helen by the god Zeus, who came upon her in the form of a swan. BRETT Gender: Masculine & Feminine From a Middle English surname meaning "a Breton", referring to an inhabitant of Brittany. TIMOTHY From the Greek name Τιμοθεος (Timotheos) meaning "honouring God", derived from τιμαω (timao) "to honour" and θεος (theos) "god". Saint Timothy was a companion of Paul on his missionary journeys and was the recipient of two of Paul's epistles that appear in the New Testament. According to tradition, he was martyred at Ephesus after protesting the worship of Artemis. ILANA Gender: Feminine Usage: Jewish Other Scripts: אִילָנָה (Hebrew) Feminine form of ILAN, means "tree" in Hebrew. ELIZABETH From Ελισαβετ (Elisabet), the Greek form of the Hebrew name אֱלִישֶׁבַע ('Elisheva') meaning "my God is an oath" or perhaps "my God is abundance". In the New Testament this is the name of the mother of John the Baptist. It was also borne by the 12th-century Saint Elizabeth, a daughter of King Andrew II of Hungary who became a Franciscan nun and lived in poverty. It was also the name of a ruling queen of England and an empress of Russia. Famous modern bearers include the British queen Elizabeth II and actress Elizabeth Taylor. KATHERINE From the Greek name Αικατερινη (Aikaterine). The etymology is debated: it could derive from the earlier Greek name ‘Εκατερινη (Hekaterine), which came from ‘εκατερος (Hekateros) "each of the two"; it could derive from the name of the goddess HECATE; it could be related to Greek αικια (aikia) "torture"; or it could be from a Coptic name meaning "my consecration of your name". The Romans associated it with Greek καθαρος (katharos) "pure" and changed their spelling from Katerina to Katharina to reflect this. The name belonged to a 4th-century saint and martyr from Alexandria who was tortured on the famous Catherine wheel. Another saint by this name was Catherine of Siena, a 14th-century mystic. This name was also borne by two empresses of Russia, including Catherine the Great, and by three of Henry VIII's wives.

Lazy Loaded Guy

"Let’s be honest. This is probably the 400th website you have read this week that promises fame and fortune. Let’s talk reality here. You still have no idea what you are looking for. The fact is that I AM the laziest guy on the planet. Some people call me a recreational specialist. That is too nice. I am a sloth. I am not even writing this myself. That would be too much work. I am lying in my hammock making someone else write it for me. Before I was rich I used to sell cars. Too much work. I used to do construction. Way too much work. I was a bouncer at a nightclub. Lazy yes, but too violent and not enough money. Then I found an even lazier guy that was willing to teach me a STUPIDLY simple,INSANELY profitable, wealth creation system. Of course it didn’t require much learning or work or…I wouldn’t have done it." http://thelazyloadedguy.com/ Oh the things you discover when you're searching this internet. Anyone want to sign up for his monthly newsletter?

Andre Agassi

"In perhaps his most impressive achievement, he was the only man in the last 37 years to win all four Grand Slam singles titles: the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon and the United States Open. He is the only man to have won them on three different surfaces. When Don Budge, Fred Perry, Rod Laver and Roy Emerson managed it, three of the four Grand Slam events were on grass. Now, only Wimbledon is played on the game’s original surface."

The Illusionist

Saw it last night and I have to say, not only is Edward Norton a piece of ASS #$%(*)@#$, but this guy behind the scenes (probably the director or someone really important...clearly I am a moron) is almost kind of hot. And Jessica Biel is obviously F-alicious. And the movie's really good, too. It's like a win-win-win thing. Yeah, THAT good.
