At work.. going down..

August 21st, 2009 No comments

So get this. I’ve seen some crazy stuff at the office but this takes the cake.

Background : My building has three floors and a basement. Typically people take the freight elevator from the 2nd or 3rd floor to go to the 1st floor cafe. If someone gets on at the 3rd floor, there’s no reason to go anywhere else usually.

So I get on the elevator on the 2nd floor. I push the 1st floor. It goes up to the 3rd floor. I see a woman, she pauses for a moment like she’s uncertain what to do. I already know there’s a guy around the corner.

I quip, “Going Down” — which is plainly obvious anyway but it’s just automatic.

She pauses, gets on goes to the back, guy pauses, follows.   They don’t ask for me to push any other floor.   Door closes, I’m at the front facing the front, putzing on my phone. 

I hear a slight thump followed by some fairly unmistakable noises.   To top it off, I then hear some giggling and the woman muttering “ow…  laugh.. ow”

Doors open, I leave…  they don’t follow.

Spongebob + Burger King + Sir Mix-a-Lot = Brain Death?

April 8th, 2009 No comments

Okay.  I normally don’t like the so called King of Burger King fame, and I’ve never been fond of Spongebob.  Sir Mix-A-Lot however I find at the very least, amusing.

The three of these things combined somehow edges over the cliff of insanity into…  guilty pleasure?

The $54 million pants suit unravels again –

The $54 million pants suit unravels again –

So…  Can anyone explain how this Ex-Administrative judge can continue this kind of absurdity?  54 Million Dollars for a mistaken pair of pants?  Really?

How is this NOT a vendetta?  How can he not be taken to task for this kind of abuse?  How has he not been “removed” by a mob for being a dumbass?

20 Years for Buying Manga — CBLDF Involved

December 15th, 2008 No comments

Alright folks – I know many of you have been seeing this article drift here and there across the Manga and Anime communities.   I’m throwing my two cents in here.

Carl Horn’s editorial below states the case very clearly.  It should scare the living daylights out of you.   Its also not a new fight, its an old fight that people have to fight all the time.  

In this particular case, someone is being persecuted for buying manga from Japan.   He was originally hit under the PROTECT act — and while some parts of the act have been ruled unconstitutional he is still facing charges for portions of manga that have been labeled as obscene.

20 Years in Prison for Buying a Manga – Anime News Network

CBLDF to Serve As Special Consultant in PROTECT Act Manga Case –

Right.  This guy had 1200 pieces of general manga and dojinshi.   He’s not being charged with selling or distribution, nor is he being charged for having a massive collection of child pornography.  He is being charged because “several” images in this massive collection “seem” to depict minors in a sexual act.

Those of you who like to collect books..  Do you know the contect of every single image on your computer or in your house?  Say, aren’t there scenes in high school romance manga that depict kissing between minors?  Got a piece that’s slightly ecchi in nature?  Watch out.  The guy ogiling her chest looks like he’s under 18..

At root – an illustration has been labeled obscene.  An idea, a thought that was put down on paper has been labeled as offensive and obscene, and deserving of upwards of 20 years in prison.  I shouldn’t need to say much about this.

Make your own decision.  Don’t take my word on it.  My feelings on this are based on my initial read of the case as presented by Carl Horn’s editorial and the CBLDF’s statements.  I will freely admit that I don’t have the full picture, I don’t have the prosecution’s case, and I have not see the images in question.   Make your own decision. 

However, if you want to care about certain basic tenants of our country, freedom of creativity and freedom of thought…  Please read up on this case (and others like it) then decide how you feel about it.

Dance Dance Revolution — the … theatre production??

December 12th, 2008 No comments

Wow.  I’m scared, so scared.  Apparently someone decided they couldn’t resist basing a avant-theater production on Dance Dance Revolution. 

“This December, Les Freres Corbusier transforms the Ohio Theater into a fully immersive, bombed-out discothèque as we fuse unmerciful Japanese rave music with deeply regrettable sophomoric comedy in this one-of-a-kind, futuristic dance spectacular, Dance Dance Revolution. Riffing on fizzy dance musicals like Flashdance and death sport movies such as Rollerball, Dance Dance Revolution is like Footloose set in the future—but much scarier, and with 50 really attractive, barely-clothed young actors and buckets of free beer.” – Welcome

I’m both scared and amused…  Playing through December 20th (Next week) at 66 Wooster Streeet.   So, anyone else curious?  Anyone want to go?

I couldn’t help but share this.  Apparently, a particularly um… enthusiastic makeout session resulted in unexpected results for this man’s girlfriend.

… fucking Chinese manufacturing.

June 14th, 2008 No comments

Bought a brand new NVidia 9600 GT from PNY through Newegg..

….. Transferred my current machine to the old mini-case….

Installed the motherboard…

Installed the CPU (which was its own challenge, damned zero difficulty clips on the fan my ASS)

Opened the vid card… and the BLOODY FAN FELL OUT.   No SCREWS to hold the fan in the housing!  The manufacturing plant DIDN’T INSTALL THE SCREWS.   3 tiny 1 cent screws!
