I try to keep politics off this blog as much as possible because there's just a shitload of political blogs out there and let's face it, who needs another progressive gloating at the downfall of the neo-con agenda? For the most part I'm successful at avoiding politics, however occasionally news is so un-ignorable that I have to jump on the train. (as in the katrina posts) I recently discovered this "game" on one of those many political blogs out there. This is a brilliant metaphor to how the US has approached the War on Terror, and it's just a hell of a lot of fun for those of us "destructive types". Basically, you get to fire a missile at the bad guys. Accuracy is questionable (just like real-life) and the results are a lot of collateral damage without really hitting the intended target or solving the original problem. (also like real-life) What makes this brilliant is, the more you play, the more "terrorists" you create (more like real-life!). In a nutshell the war on terror would be much more successful if it was fought with responsible foreign policy instead of bombs and genocide. Click the link below to play the "war on Terrorism" game a.k.a September 12th. (You'll need shockwave on your computer to play)

Yes folks, after years of clever hilarity, thanks to Johnny "Big-Dog" Dolan, I have finally found the quintessential guide to any and all terms for bizarre sex acts. Amaze your friends and girlfriends by knowing exactly what it takes to perform a "Roman War Helmet". Bask in the glory and beam with pride as you finally accomplish the "Abe Lincoln". So much fun, and so many home projects for the enterprising libertine. Click link below for the entire glossary of terms.

For those that know me personally, we've probably had a discussion or two about the origins of mankind. I've always considered an unorthodox approach to this question because i truly believe that all current religion isn't even close to the real truth. That truth being who we really are, and how we came to be the self-conscious beings we are. I have always wanted to read an honest clear translation of the Sumerian Bible (this pre-dating the hebrew bible by thousands of years) because many of the current biblical tales of great floods et al. originated in those Sumerian legends. The Sumerians were the closest advanced primitive culture to the real answers of how we emerged from the muck and I've always thought that primitive cultures somehow had a better grip on how it really was. Case in point, the Sumerians had star charts that included Neptune AND Pluto as well as the various moons of other major planets. They even named Neptune "The Water Planet" and Pluto the "Ice Planet". These facts predated modern mans discovery by thousands of years! Anyway, long story longer, Graham Hancock has been a great visionary and learned scholar on archaeology and human origins. He has a new book out in which he explores the hallucinogenic world of the primitive Amazonian jungle through experiencing a trip on ayahuasca. (an extremely hallucinogenic indiginous plant of the amazon prepared as you see in the pic above) His current studies concur with several other theories that "the missing link" or the reason the human brain jump-started its development and artistic, societal and mechanical skills developed so fast was due to the discovery and ingestion of hallucinogenic flora.

Through the years I've noticed something universal about modern Americans and their struggle to find good entertainment. (something as rare as the dodo nowadays) Most people can't resist watching cringe moments happen to their fellow humans. I am no exception. Here is a bit of fantastic video of a Mt Laurel NJ Junior High School "talent" show. The link below will take you to the winner of "The Most Beat-Up Kid of the Class of 2004". Dig a little deeper in the site, and perouse the brilliant videos of talent shows' past. Enjoy repeated torurous renditions of 'the Star Spangled Banner' mutilated by sub-adequate guitar playing. (theres one every year) Relish the pre-pubescent butchering of Beatles' classics. (seemingly a big hit with the Jr high School ladies) Theres something for everyone at this site. Now, I know that some of you are saying that this could be construed as 'mean-spirited,' however, as a father of two budding talents myself, this is meant in the lightest of humor. A warm thanks to the visionaries that thought it would be a good idea to post these videos for all the world to enjoy.
