After a particularly serious lover session, you snuggle up and spoon - with you behind. Enjoy a few minutes of wonderful post-coital bliss and wait until everything is silent and still. Then start to piss. She'll try to pull away, but hold on tight.
Tell her that it is OK... it's just your leaky water bed.
If you take a lot of acid you either never grow up or you become a
Revolutionary (whether recognised or secret). Well, that's what
happened to my brother. Lots of ex-trippers seems to become Zen or
Tibetan Monks, or Scientologists. (Via)
I will begin working on an extended trance mix of this immediately.
...and from the still-smoldering flames of the ill-fated (but ingenious) BIAS, Eric Elkins emerges as part of snazzy new operation that enables cellphone users to pay for stuff using only their phones. Called FEED Tribes, this simple yet powerful approach to streamlining basic purchase flows will make faster and easier to buy things at enrolled merchant locations. Basically, it is a super-secure gift card that lives on your cell. Simply text a few digits to FEED, order and pass your approval code to the register jockey. Done. I actually tried it out in Boulder and it was deceptively simple. I was left with a feeling of "That's it? I don't have to do anything else?" And that's not all... Elkins and comrade-in-content Nate Warren are slapping the innovative BIAS template on top of this payment system to create some kind of social-buying-consumer-groove-a-thon-party-machine-network. Or something like that.
Check out the great piece in Denver's Westword where Elkins nails the core reason why BIAS didn't last and the new opportunities presented by the powerful FEED platform.
Elkins should know: He created Bias with Nathan Warren,
who's assisting FEED Tribes on a contract basis. And this new venture
will benefit from the lessons learned at Bias, which died this past
July -- a death Elkins attributes, at least in part, to the gutlessness
exhibited by his superiors at the Denver Newspaper Agency. "I felt like
nobody had the balls to let us do what we wanted to do," he says. "We
watched the creativity die on the vine."
As long as the good folks at FEED allow Warren and Elkins to swing for the fences with bad words, boobs and beer, then expect there to be consistently entertaining content and FEED merchants and members strewn about college towns like empty Tecate cans at a hipster picnic.
Someday you will get in a fight. Not some push-fest over a parking spot, but an actual 'holy-shit-this-guy-is- actually-trying-to-really-fuck-me-up kind of fight. The kind of fight after which you feel that you briefly stepped back in evolutionary time and became some kind of neanderthal.
Because once that thin veil of basic human respect is pierced then all bets are off. Screw this 'fighting with honor' shit. As this fellow says:
If he's got you pinned down and you happen to see a rock out of the
corner of your eye? Don't be afraid to grab that rock and smash his
face with it. There is no shiny trophy waiting for you at the end of
this fight, so everything goes.
So, you thing you have a great idea? Chances are that someone has already patented it. Today, the good folks at Google have released a new service that allows you to dig deep into the US Patent and Trademark Office - Google Patent Search.
Today, we're excited to be releasing the beta version of Google Patent Search,
which makes it easy to search the full text of the U.S. patent corpus
and find patents that interest you. Start your exploration at www.google.com/patents or visit the Advanced Patent Search page to search by criteria, including patent number, inventor, and filing date. You can view images of original patents online.
Former Air Force officer Mikey Weinstein says evangelicals are trying
to turn his beloved military into a "frickin' faith-based initiative."
"We have a virulently dominionist, fundamentalist evangelical Christian
element within the Pentagon. They would prefer this to be the
"Pentecostalgon," not the Pentagon. That's what they would prefer.
They're trying to turn the Pentagon into a frickin' faith-based
initiative, and that is not what our military is about."
"My response is I've given the new secretary of defense 20 days to
answer the Freedom of Information Act request, which the law gives him,
and at the end we intend to get as much information as we can, fashion
it into a dagger and then stab at the heart of this unconstitutional,
wretched, vile, darkness at the Pentagon. This unconstitutional
darkness, we will stab at it with our dagger until we kill it."
I'm pretty sure I mentioned Left Behind: Eternal Forces a few months back. If you are unfamiliar with it, this is a new video game by the gentle folks from Left Behind - an evangelical Christian corporation/publishing house. Basically, you are a Christian warrior running around a post-rapture New York City trying to save souls and fight the Antichrist. Besides the fact the from a gamer's perspective, it kind of sucks (5.9 IGN), the game contributes to the rapid polarization of the American Christian and secular society.
"It's an incredibly violent video game," said Stevens. "Sure, there is no
blood. (The dead just fade off the screen.) But you are mowing down your enemy
with a gun. It pushes a message of religious intolerance. You can either play
for the 'good side' by trying to convert nonbelievers to your side or join the
And nothing like playing on current (and contrived) fears of Islamic Fundamentalists threating our freedom to bolster sales.
When asked about the Arab and Muslim-sounding names, Frichner said the
game does not endorse prejudice. But "Muslims are not believers in Jesus
Christ" -- and thus can't be on Christ's side in the game.
"That is so obvious," he said.
Troy A. Lyndon, founder and chief executive officer of New York-based Left Behind Games Inc. says:
"The game is focus more on the "teachings of Jesus, and his prayers for hope, love and peace, than on proselytizing."
Now, maybe I'm reading a different Bible, but I'm fairly certain Jesus didn't equate hope, love and peace with shooting people in cold blood because they were different.
Ah...ha, ha, ha... I love this stuff. I guess Sony tried to get all crafty with their latest PSP marketing. Much like the atrocious Dell Ditty effortsfrom last year, Sony hired a bunch of cool kids to be all cool and all so that they could relate with the cool kids as they go about their business being cool and all. The 'blog' has 'normal guys' just chatting about how they want a PSP for Christmas...
i (charlie) have a psp. my friend jeremy does not. but he wants one this year for xmas. so we started clowning with sum not-so-subtle hints to j's parents that
a psp would be teh perfect gift.
we created this site to spread the luv
to those like j who want a psp! consider us your own personal psp hype machine, here to help you wage a
holiday assault on ur parents, girl, granny, boss – whoever – so they
know what you really want.
we'll let you know how it works for us. pls return the favor.
more to come,
They - meaning the marketing company - shot a .45 little faux-rap video thing has some white kid acting 'kooky' while a someone mumbles crap about the PSP... honestly, I didn't listen. But at no point did I hear the word 'nigga' so it is obviously a sham.
Of course, kids in the know - which is fucking everybody except Sony - are ripping this apart like a swarm of meth-addled piranha digging into Star Jones.
Busted. Nailed. Snagged. As many of you have figured out (maybe our
speech was a little too funky fresh???), Peter isn't a real hip-hop
maven and this site was actually developed by Sony. Guess we were
trying to be just a little too clever. From this point forward, we will
just stick to making cool products, and use this site to give you
nothing but the facts on the PSP.
