Update: Austin Large Found Safe In B.C.

30 September 2008 at 9:04 am (News) (, , , , , )


The 13 year old autistic boy was found in British Columbia after he and his father didn’t return from a fishing trip to North Bay.

Police had issued an Amber alert for Large, but it was cancelled on Monday night after being issued earlier that day.

Police were concerned for the Ancaster boy because he had only a three-day supply of prescription medication with him.

It’s not yet clear whether charges will be laid but police are expected to release further information at a news conference later today.

If You’re Ugly, Click the Back Button.

28 September 2008 at 7:55 pm (Entertainment, Love & Relationships, Random, Rants) (, , , , , , , , , , )


Imagine, if you will, a website so shallow that you are literally screened by existing members before your membership is accepted. Where you have to submit a picture and you are voted and ranked by others “qualified” to tell you whether you are in or out. I kid you not. A site like this exists. In the form of www.beautifulpeople.com. It also has a “.net” URL.

I first heard of this website reading a column in a daily paper on the way to work a few months ago. I thought it was interesting yet bullshit at the same time. It was recently brought up to me again during casual conversation with my girl, D Inspectah. I’m not naive to the fact that beauty and looks get you far in the world (as wrong as that is) but I didn’t think someone would have the balls to make a website on this premise. But then again, I thought, why WOULDN’T someone?

So, a website is born where good looking people want to meet other good looking people without the threat of uglies getting in the way. Never mind the fact that what’s ugly to you may not be ugly to someone else. That doesn’t matter here. Here, it’s the “majority rules” deal. You are deemed beautiful by other members. You are deemed worthy by strangers. You are deemed exceptional and are accepted by the internet’s elite.

THIS IS SOME FUCKERY.

Now, I am almost tempted to join and see if I pass. But I can’t and won’t lie, if those assholes don’t accept me, I’ll be pissed off. LMFAO. Not because they deemed me unworthy but because I get everything I want and I want in to this site to get a better perspective for a deeper blog. Am I afraid of being rejected? Not at all.  I don’t need the site to give me the attention their members are clearly craving.

I went to the main page and hesitated signing up. I saw some of the “members” and already I’m judging them. They aren’t cute. She isn’t that pretty. He really isn’t all that fine. And just like that I’m thinking … DAMN! They got me! I’m just like them! I’m judging!!! No! Ahhhhh!

What kind of world do we live in where we are judged solely on our outer appearance? This is nothing new. It’s been a part of our culture for a long time. I know that. I’m aware but it doesn’t make it right. Of course the first thing you see is someones looks. Their eyes, their smile, their body. Whatever you are attracted to physically. You don’t initially see someone and say “Well, aren’t they just so intelligent and witty!” I get that but for a website to base its membership on looks alone and to encourage only “beautiful people” to meet other “beautiful people” what message are we sending? Are we placing more importance on looks than personality and intelligence when looking for a mate? Indeed. I wouldn’t WANT to meet someone on a site like this because I’d know that its nothing but shallow people looking to me for what I LOOK like rather than for who I am.

This isn’t to say there aren’t good people on there looking for looks AND personality. I’m sure there are more than a few but its the INITIAL premise behind it that has me bothered. The initial screening process to weed out the people that may be more “plain jane” or “average joe” than the all American beauty or glamorous diva. What’s so wrong with the average everyday person?

There is nothing wrong with wanting someone who has the “entire package”. We all want that, and in an ideal world we can all HAVE that, but let’s face it, this day in age its a hard package to come across. Most of us have to compromise our wants and needs for reality and what we can get.

I can’t see myself joining a site like this but I can see why many people would. For whatever reason, a lot of people like to hear how fabulous they look; how sexy they are. Who wouldn’t? We all like compliments. Nothing wrong with that. I personally, don’t like compliments all that much, because I don’t know how to accept them properly. I don’t understand them and can’t accept them without shyly looking away or blushing. But that’s just ME. I always say thank you and keep it moving. I never got into getting caught up in the hype of a compliment. Maybe because half the time i never know if they are genuine or not. If they’re just lines or words from a guy to get into my pants. In any case, if I signed up for a site like this my suspicions would only peak more and more because I know, for the most part, this is a site full of shallow assholes, more than likely only appreciating me for my looks and not my brain or my humour or whatever else I have to offer.

And that would suck.

Now, apparently, Slice is going to air a show dedicated to this website and its debut in Canada. In the promos, one of the sites owners (or at least I believe him to be) says: “In Canada, it will be hard to find people”. That line made me laugh because you ask a lot of people OUTSIDE of Canada and they’ll say our country has some of the most GORGEOUS women in the world. The same may not be said for the men (lol, that’s ok) but the women here are indeed beautiful. I’m wondering if he’s just one of those dumb American’s that know nothing of geography and thinks Canada is a small city in the North Pole or something and assumes that Canadians wear eskimo gear all year round?

You know, as a matter of fact, I’d love to see who made this site. Who are the sites creators? I will put my money down that the owners aren’t nearly as beautiful as all their “members”.

Its a sad day though, folks. When you hear of a site like this, then you go there and see they have 120,000+ members and the site is growing daily, it becomes rather depressing to know that THAT many people are fascinated by nothing more than beauty.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I thank God I don’t know anyone PERSONALLY with a membership to that site. I would probably look at them a bit differently. And that makes me a hypocrite because I’m doing what the sites users are doing – judging. Albeit for different reasons, but judging just the same. Such a sad, sad day.

It’s Easy To Say Goodbye To Yesterday

27 September 2008 at 10:32 am (Love & Relationships) (, , , , , , )


       I’ve learned A LOT these past couple of months. About friendship. This summer started off extremely well. It was fun and busy. Met some new people, always had somewhere to go and something to do every weekend. I was laughing. But this summer was definitely a summer I won’t forget. I took a step out of my comfort zone to have a great time. Now, I’m wondering if that was such a good idea. My desire to try something new, something I hadn’t tried in years, has overshadowed a striking reality check.

I’ve always kept a small group of very trusted friends. People I’ve known a long time. People I didn’t see all the time so that I wouldn’t get sick of them. I didn’t confide in a lot of people. I kept to myself. I was happy with that and comfortable. I didn’t trust a lot of people. My inner circle was solid, tight and wonderful. I always got along better with guys but I decided my female friendships, although not common, they were SOLID. You see, I never used to really like females nor did I trust them. But in the past few years that’s changed. I reckon it would be due to me growing up and growing out of the “game” mode and entering into womanhood; adulthood. It had a lot to do with leaving the bullshit behind. So, I stepped out of that comfort zone and decided to broaden my circle. And I regret it. Even though I learned from it, I regret it. 

I’ve always been a pleasant person. Pleasant until pushed to be anything but. I get along with everyone. People of every race, age, background. If you’re good people, you’re good people. I won’t discredit you for anything because I am not in the position to do so. BUT, like most, I have a sense for people. A good sense. I’m usually a great judge of character. But, some people are REALLY good. They fool you. Some can do it for only a few days, a few weeks but there are some that can do it for YEARS. These people you REALLY have to watch out for. I give them the (not so) coveted name of “A SHEEP IN WOLVES CLOTHING”. These people are usually snakes that want to do nothing but suck the life and happiness out of you. They can come in male form but rarely do they NOT come in the form of a female. Most females in general are spiteful, vengeful creatures by habit. They are manipulative, jealous, conniving, petty, catty and insecure.

I thought I had friends that were completely devoid of the aforementioned traits. I thought I had friends that were confident and honest and truthful and forthcoming. (And don’t get me wrong, I do. And I love them. And they know who they are.) But what is a friend? A friend is someone you hold dear to you because you regard them highly and trust them. You expect them to tell you the truth, to have your back, to be honest at all times (even when it hurts). You expect them to be happy for you when something good happens. What you don’t expect is for them to be sheisty and back stabbing and liars and cheaters. But then again, when you look back after a revelation, you’ll often see and notice that they never were an actual FRIEND to begin with. More an acquaintance that just happened to be around more than not.

When you start to realize you’ve been duped you become super hyper-sensitive to everything else they do. It almost makes you paranoid and wary. You actually question if its you and not them. Who wants to believe their friend is a fraud? No one, right? You try your best to give them the benefit of the doubt; you make excuses for them because you are in denial. THEN, when it becomes too much to bear you realize no matter WHAT YOU DO, THIS IS WHO THEY ARE. And how do you cope when it gets to that point?

Usually, I would confront someone and out rightly tell them I think they are bogus and a fraud and a bitch or whatever other word will come to mind. Usually, I verbalize my hurt, disappointment, anger and ire. But sometimes, saying nothing at all is the sweetest way to do it. I want to say revenge here but no one is trying to one up the other. Sometimes, certain things are better left unsaid. It can give the “friend” a chance to sit and think about their wrongs. It can give them a chance to decipher what they did rather than just being told. MAYBE this time they’ll understand the depth of their actions. Or maybe not.

What I was blind to before was my so-called friends “history.” Her history of never keeping the same friends for a long time. I found it odd but didn’t question it. Now I see why.

I have no reason to say a word to her because I have no desire to salvage the “friendship”. To me its beyond saving or reconciliation and therefore I want nothing more to do with her. It’s just a shame that the ultimate reason for this blog was because of a GUY. You’d think once you  reach a certain age, female friendships wouldn’t break down because of a penis. But this one did. And not on my account. I did what I was asupposed to do as a friend. I did my part. I made sure of it. What’s funny is that I chose her over him because that’s what good friends do. That’s what good friends are supposed to do. Men come and go but friendships are forever. I learned that lil golden rule AGES ago but I’ve since learned that not everyone deserves to play by those rules. Some men deserve to stay and some friendships deserve to go. But as a woman that is constantly learning and growing, THAT particular lesson came a tad too late. But for next time, I’ll be more aware. The best thing to do in situations like these is to learn from your mistakes.

And boy, learning I did. Always keep your eyes open to those around you. The smiles you see are forced upside down frowns. Nothing more, nothing less. No one likes to see another person TOO happy all the time. UNLESS they are your TRUE friend. And TRUE friends are rare. Just like a GOOD MAN is rare. When you have either/or, hold onto them. You may never get that chance, again.

Fart Could Land Man In Jail

25 September 2008 at 10:27 am (Funny Things, News, Random, Why Is This News?) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )


SOUTH CHARLESTON, West Virginia (AP) — A West Virginia man who police said passed gas and fanned it toward a patrol officer has been charged with battery on a police officer.

Jose A. Cruz, 34, of Clarksburg was pulled over early Tuesday for driving without headlights, police said. According to the criminal complaint, Cruz smelled of alcohol, had slurred speech and failed three field sobriety tests before he was handcuffed and taken to a police station for a Breathalyzer test.

As Patrolman T.E. Parsons prepared the machine, Cruz scooted his chair toward Parsons, lifted his leg and “passed gas loudly,” the complaint said.

Cruz, according to the complaint, then fanned the gas toward the officer.

“The gas was very odorous and created contact of an insulting or provoking nature with Patrolman Parsons,” the complaint alleged.

He was also charged with driving under the influence, driving without headlights and two counts of obstruction.

Cruz acknowledged passing gas but said he didn’t move his chair toward the officer nor aim gas at the patrolman. He said he had an upset stomach at the time, but police denied his request to go to the bathroom when he arrived at the station.

“I couldn’t hold it no more,” he said.

He also denied being drunk and uncooperative, as the police complaint alleged. He added he was upset at being prepared for a Breathalyzer test while having an asthma attack.

The police statement said he later resisted being secured for a trip to a hospital that he requested for asthma treatment.

Cruz said the officers thought the gas incident was funny when it happened and laughed about it with him.

“This is ridiculous,” he said. “I could be facing time.”

I can’t stop laughing at this. To think someones ASSHOLE is being charged with assault is KILLING me. The fact this guy farted and wafted his fart into a cops path and the cop decided it was so pungent he charged the dude with assault has me DYING. I guess fanning farts is what’s hot in the streets right now.

David Blaine: Dive of Death

24 September 2008 at 1:43 pm (Entertainment, Televison) (, , , , , , , , )


David Blaine: Dive of Death

David Blaine: Dive of Death
wed sep 24th 9/8c
David Blaine, known for his headline-making spectacles of physical, emotional and mental endurance, will live on the line — literally. Blaine, the ‘Upside Down Man,’ will attempt to hang from a thin wire five stories in the air — with no safety net or airbag to break his fall — in Central Park’s Wollman Rink for three days and nights. Using electro-magnetic boots, Blaine will walk on and under the wire during more than 60 hours of the challenge. How will he exit from his perch overlooking New York City? Details of Blaine’s heart-stopping plunge at the conclusion of the special are a closely-guarded secret. He will surprise us all — live — on a new, two-hour ABC primetime special, David Blaine: Dive of Death, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Additionally, viewers will join Blaine on a unique cross-country trip, as he makes his way from the east coast to the Grand Canyon, performing his jaw-dropping illusions for people in his own distinctive style. Blaine, who has triumphantly revived amazing crowd-pleasing spectacles of magic, surprises people by appearing in the most unexpected places, bringing his amazing illusions to people who need it the most. The real people with whom Blaine shares the power of his magic include residents of the Ninth Ward in New Orleans, coal miners in West Virginia’s Mingo County and inner city gangs of East St. Louis.

For more than 60 spellbinding hours, Blaine will be on the wire without food. He will pull himself up to drink liquids and to restore circulation. He will need to fight off muscle spasms and lack of sleep, as well as maintain maximum concentration in order to be successful. He will have to hang on for his life, even sleeping by dangling upside down.

Blaine’s latest endurance challenge will take place in full public view — a free, family friendly event beginning the morning of September 22 — with passersby able to see him hanging precariously from his high wire.

Blaine successfully held his breath under water for longer than any human being (after inhaling pure oxygen) — 17 minutes and four-seconds — live on April 30 on The Oprah Winfrey Show. In May 2006, on ABC’s live special, David Blaine: Drowned Alive, he attempted to break the 8-minute, 58-second record for a breath-hold under water (after inhaling air that was not oxygenated) after living for a record seven days and nights underwater — longer than any human — in an acrylic sphere in front of New York’s Lincoln Center.

He also successfully completed a 44-day fast in an acrylic box suspended over the Thames River in London in the fall of 2003, surviving only on water. American viewers have been following his exploits for years on ABC Television. On David Blaine: Vertigo, in May of 2002, he balanced on a platform, 22 inches in diameter, atop a 90-foot pillar in Manhattan’s Bryant Park for 35 hours.

In November 2000, Blaine’s Frozen in Time challenge drew massive crowds in Times Square, as he successfully survived inside a block of ice for over 61 hours. In April 1999, he was Buried Alive for seven days and seven nights, stunning thousands of New Yorkers who filed by his see-through crypt. The country was initially introduced to Blaine’s amazing brand of incredible effects on his first ABC special, David Blaine: Street Magic, which aired in May 1997.

David Blaine: Dive of Death is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC’s selected HDTV format, with 5.1-channel surround sound.

It’s just something so sexy about these dark magicians. David looks like he could take your clothes off with the right look (and maybe he can – humph) without even touching you. His dark eyes and piercing glare is so intense. Criss Angel is another one I love to look at. Some people say they aren’t human or are fake.  Some people have even gone as far as calling them devils. I don’t really care to call them anything but sexy. I enjoy them for what they provide; which is entertainment. I also enjoy them for what they do to my panties.
David Blaine: Dive of Death airs tonight at 9pm on ABC. Check your local listings.

Yet Another Greyhound Stabbing

22 September 2008 at 10:37 am (News) (, , , , , )


A young man was stabbed in the chest while travelling through northern Ontario on a Greyhound bus yesterday afternoon, less than two hours after passengers say the attacker was put on board by police.

The victim – identified by witnesses as an Asian man in his mid-20s – was rushed to hospital but was expected to survive.

Police arrested the suspect near White River, just moments after the Greyhound driver allowed the man with blood on his hands to get off at the side of the highway.

“We don’t know why he was with the police or why he was able to get on the bus with a knife and get that by police,” said passenger Anita Daher, one of a dozen passengers who witnessed the terrifying incident, which immediately brought back memories of the July attack near Portage la Prairie, Man., in which a passenger was stabbed and beheaded on a Greyhound.

“There’s got to be some security measures put in place. We don’t feel safe,” said Daher.

She boarded the bus in Sault Ste. Marie, deliberately picking a seat near the front, believing she’d be safe if trouble broke out.

Daher said she was returning messages on her BlackBerry when she heard a commotion from the back of the bus just after 3 p.m.

“I heard a shout, someone yelling that someone was having trouble breathing. Then I heard something about a knife,” said Daher.

She called 911, then handed the phone to the Greyhound driver.

About the same time, a young man walked up to the front of the bus, blood dripping from his hands.

The man demanded the bus stop and let him off immediately.

The driver – apparently not aware of exactly what had happened – told him they’d be arriving in White River in a few minutes.

The man wasn’t satisfied, saying “Just open the doors.”

“People at the back were yelling `Don’t let him get away,’ but the driver stopped and let him off,” she said. Police apparently picked him up at the side of the road a short time later.

The bus continued on to White River where it was met by paramedics who rushed the victim to hospital by ambulance.

A Greyhound spokeswoman said yesterday she cannot confirm any details because of an ongoing police investigation. Ontario Provincial Police have not released information about the incident.

SOURCE

I don’t understand how this could happen again ….. so soon. Has there not been any changes to security and passenger safety? This doesn’t look good for Greyhound at all.  Something needs to be done. Fast. To me, this has “copycat crime” written all over it. The fact that psycho’s all over the world saw how lax security is on the Greyhound routes, it allowed them to take their crazy shit to their buses.

And thanks to my boy Sean, the jokes have already started. Don’t bother riding Greyhound because “at least you can run back and forth on Via Rail.” WOMP WOMP!

I dont want to downplay the seriousness of the situation. I’m moreso making fun of Greyhound than the victim. I hope that would go without saying but for the slow folk, I have to make it known.
