Girls who get the internet

 
I get offer letters every day from people selling consulting services on how to better understand the Internet. Obviously, you need paid counseling to comprehend the complex equation that tits and sports and gambling account for 98% of all male Internet online activity. So entirely different than offline, plus or minus half a percent. Alessandra Ambrosio understands the Internet. You don’t make the move from Brazil to Brentwood without knowing how to manipulate innate human desire. I don’t even know which ass is hers. And I don’t care. That’s the genius. The intersection of arousal and not giving a shit is where men erect their Honeycomb Hideouts. (from wwtdd.com pretty much my favourite place on the internet...I'm pretty sure it's written by women)

TUSK - Kevin Smith gets all Horror on our asses





Looks as though he's combined Boxing Helena and Centipede for a little horror comedy in Canada.....I'm a fan of Smith, although he let me down with his buddy cop movie cheque flick...he definitely redeemed himself with Red State....this one looks fun...I wonder how many Degrassi references there will be?

Where have you been?....or? Am I done with this thing?

I know I know....I keep saying I have to come back to this thing and start posting again....I just don't seem to have the time...actually, that's not true...I have time while my fat ass is in front of the tele watching corry...maybe it's lack of interest? could be....

I suppose there's plenty to rant about...from the lack of good movies (good god was Godzilla bad....) to nonsense in the recent news...

I did a bit of travel in the last few months...back to Chicago (I love that town), Vegas (screw you craps table) and Vancouver....all good trips....heading back to Van real soon.

I'll need to get some inspiration....maybe the road trip will do something.

to hold you over until I get doing something...here's a funny picture of the Rock when he was a Sunshine Boy in '97
Nice fanny pack and Kid n Play hair Dwayne

Mid march

Just got back from the UK. As usual...very good trip that I need a vacation from.

I'll post some pictures of the places visited this time.

This might actually be the last trip for quite some time...just given the new cost of flights etc...it's just getting unreasonable.

Quick food update....I'm trying my hand at a curry....shrimp curry to be exact....

should be interesting...


peace out

Come here little fishies

I just got my first TEXT fishing scheme....I got a text, from what looks like the UK, telling me that some dude named Simon Hardy from the United National Bank needs me to email him for a vital transaction...

Ok...for those newbs out there...these things are so freaking easy to see through and I'm always surprised to hear that people are taken in by them.

Here's a few things that jump out at me as soon as I looked at it....
- I don't bank in the UK (and I don't know anyone who does)
- My cell number is not listed (it possibly taken from some website that I had to put my cell into)
- text does not say my name
- anyone who works for a company usually has that company name in their email...this guys email is smhardy147@live.co.uk (PRETTY MUCH A DEAD GIVE AWAY).
- no bank would contact me through text to let me know something was going on....

Even if the text didn't have the stuff above and called me out by name, I would still delete it and expect that if it was legit, they'd find me sooner or later.

anyway...

when I get these I usually try to have some fun with them....in one case I was asked to hand over passport info to get some ridiculous amount of money from Africa somewhere (everyone has heard of this scam)....I emailed them and traded emails for about a month about how I was going through a divorce and my passport was confiscated so I wouldn't skip town, but if they sent me 1000$ money order made out to cash I would pay off someone at the place that had my passport....this went on for a while and they kept ignoring that I said I didn't have my passport and then after 2 months they started to get aggressive....it was so freaking funny...

I'm tempted to do the same with these clowns.....if I do, I'll let you know what happens.

Couple recent pics and stuff

So...it's now mid/end of Feb and I have been doing a shit job of keeping this up....I know I know...I keep saying I will, but then stuff gets in the way....like first world problems (you know...I'm laying on the couch and my laptop is waaaaaay over there).

In the last while I've seen a few movies (47 Ronin...not bad, is what it is, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit...not bad...nothing ground breaking)...

I am now booked for UK ST Paddys 2014....even though I say it each time, this will most likely be the last one (due to cost....flights are getting out of hand). I'll update from the UK on this one....we'll see if I can actually update daily.

Couple new projects on the go that are keeping me busy (hopefully a big one down south.....just waiting on that one).

So...here's a few pics to hold you over. (NOLA, Shanghai, UK, Mexico)

Snack

When I was in Shanghai, before i would head out on the town I'd grab a beer in the lobby. They would always serve me these dried spicy peas....they were awesome with the beer (and of course made me want to drink more)....when I got home i set out to find these tasty treats....

i finally found them (they had them at superstore and the Asian market)....the only bad part is they don't come in 1 bag...you have to buy a bag full of tiny snack sized bags.....probably a good thing since I'd end up eating a ton of these things.

give them a try next time you're tossing back a few....

2014 - Back to the blog

It's 2014 - just like that - and this blog is in desperate need of some updating.

I won't make any promises but I will try to update as much as possible.

Some things I have to update about are....trip to Shanghai, New Orleans, Mexico, Montana, and some other stuff....

and away we go !
