This guy doesn't even look like he has the sexual prowess to do something as bold as send a nude photo to anyone.Rep. Anthony Weiner is under some sort of fire by the media because someone sent an inappropriate photo to a woman from his Twitter account. It is SO OBVIOUS that he didn't do it. The woman who received the photo even said that there's no way possible that he did this, but the media is still pursuing the story. Here is my impression of the whole situation:
Media: Did you send this picture of your underwear to this woman on Twitter?
Rep. Weiner: No, I didn't.
Media: So this isn't you in this photo.
Rep. Weiner: No, it isn't. I have a team of people getting to the bottom of this. I didn't send a picture of myself to anyone on my Twitter account.
Media: Yeah, but did you send it?
Rep. Weiner: No.
Media: It came from your Twitter account, though.
Rep. Weiner: I was clearly hacked. Hacking is something that happens everyday. People's accounts get broken into and hackers play pranks. Why don't you ask me about something worth talking about like the state of the economy or how it's becoming more and more difficult to live in the middle class in this country?
Media: Yeah, that's not important, though. What's important is finding out who's shorts are in this picture. Did you send this picture? I have it right here. See? Look.
Rep. Weiner: You're kidding me, right?
Media: So, what you're saying is that you didn't send the picture.
Rep. Weiner: Please shoot me or shoot yourself. Right now. Would you do that for me. Either way is fine with me as long as this ends.
Media: Why won't you answer the question Rep. Weiner?
Of course this is a comical interpretation of the interviews, but it really is not a far cry from how they actually sound. Honestly, I'm so sick of how the media insists on focusing on crap issues (and I use the term "issues" VERY loosely) instead of practicing REAL journalism and understanding what leads to follow and which ones are not worth the time. The current state of American media is making all of us look stupid.
Our forefathers and figures of influence are rolling in their graves. It's really a disgrace.
P.S. - Sorry for the anger in this post. It's been a tough day. Here is a picture of a puppy to make you feel better.
See? He's waving at you!
So today (June 7th, 2011) Rep. Anthony Weiner came out and admitted that he actually DID send the photos to not only one woman, but a few. I would be embarassed, but I stand by everything I said about the media.
I am, however, HIGHLY disappointed. What was he thinking? Anyways, consider this a semi-retraction of the blog post above.
Please note that the picture of the puppy is still valid.

Much like my blog post about Osama bin Laden's death, I'm not going to spend time jibber jabbing about our most recent Apocalypse Theory. Instead, I will simply say this:
There is no known religious text does not have a specific day and time of when the world will end. If you meet or know anyone who says they know when the world will end, they do not. If you meet or know anyone who says that GOD told them when the world will end, there is a 99.99999991% chance that they're lying and there is a 00.00000008% chance that they actually believe what they're saying and should be committed. The remaining 00.00000001% is how much faith I have that GOD would end all civilization as we've all be told it would happen.
I would think this was funny if there weren't thousands of people who left their homes, jobs, and children because they thought that they wouldn't make it through the weekend. These people ended their lives by doing away with their adult responsibilities to spread the word of some nut job's fake Apocalypse.
Wake up, folks. The world will NOT end with a bang. It's a slow burn.

The lesson here: The fork always prevails in a knife fight.I went to see the documentary, Forks Over Knives last night. I can't rightfully say that I enjoyed it. It's two hours of people saying the same thing over and over and over and over again. This film could have gotten it's point across in 30 minutes, but it decided to linger for an extra hour and a half. Not classy. Not classy at all.
The content of the film was interesting, but the delivery of the message was kind of lame. I would compare it to a college film student's first stab at making a feature length documentary.
I don't want to spoil anything, but the whole 2 hours went something like this:
Eating meat is bad. Eating vegetables is good. Do you know what happens when you eat meat? You get get fat. Do you want to be fat? I'll bet you dont!
Drinking milk is bad. People act like it's good for you, but it's not. You shouldn't drink milk or have any dairy products because we're not animals. We're humans. Try this vegetable product instead. Don't eat meat or have any dairy. Oh you don't believe us? Well check out this UFC champion fighter. Don't you like the way his body looks? Look at him working out. Let's ask him about his diet. Yeah, just like we though. No meat and no dairy.
Are you sick? Do you have a disease? Eat vegetables and you'll be cured. You're most likely sick because you eat meat and have dairy in your diet. Look at this UFC fighting champion work out for a few more seconds.
"Basically, at the end of the day, farmers is all about dat greenery, nahmean?"It sounds like I'm being skeptical about the validity of what the documentary was about. I am not. I believed every word of what they were saying and I did walk away knowing that there are some things I need to change about my diet. My beef (haha...beef) is that I wasted 2 hours of my life paying attention to something that I could've learned in 30 minutes.
I say skip the movie itself, but research the content. It's very valuable information.

Don't ask me why I used this picture for this blog post because your guess is as good as mine.So, I'm supposed to be editing a back log of videos right now; however, I have my guitars on the guitar rack in my room and they are always calling for me to play them. So I oblige.
My guitars and other instruments (I have an MPC5000 and a microKorg) are a frequent distraction from doing productive things. The trip is that playing my instruments is also productive.
Now I'm procrastinating on doing both editing and playing music to write a blog about how badly I procrastinate. What's crazy about THAT is that since my blog is featured on my web site, this can be considered an update to the site...which is also productive.
