(Horrible) Thought for the Day

So anyway, I was thinking (I don't know why really)...there's nothing in the world that is quite so totally hillarious and simultaneously equally completely horrifying as watching two retarded people fucking. At least nothing I can think of, and I've (obviously) thought of some really odd shit. Not that I've ever seen it personally, but I can unfortunate.

That is all.

You Can Do It!!!

“The reports of my assimilation have been greatly exaggerated.”

So anyway, yeah, I’m still alive. I know I haven’t had a new post for a while, but aside from all the Monkey love I’ve been getting lately (my God they grow up fast) life’s been kind of in the suck zone. But…I’m not here to bitch today.

I saw an interesting poll on yesterday. It asked simply “Can American consumers affect the price of gasoline?”. To my amazement, the results were split 50/50. Not to begrudge anyone their right to their own thoughts and opinions but believing that we as consumers can have any affect on what the major oil companies of this country charge for their product, particularly with the current Presidential administration in office, is naïve at best. Stop me if you’ve heard this one: “YOU CAN CHANGE THE PRICE OF GAS TODAY. On 'so and so' date, all Americans should boycott buying gas for one whole day…yadda, yadda, yadda…”. There is absolutely nothing that we as common citizens can do to lower gas prices…zip, nada, zilch, zero, diddly-squat. The only thing that will change gas prices is to find an alternative non-fossil-fuel based energy source.

Not to sound like a conspiracy nut, but even if cold-fusion or hydrogen-fusion based technologies existed today, and worked, does anyone honestly believe the public will ever hear anything about it so long as Big Oil continues to make billions (maybe even trillions) of dollars in revenue yearly. You can say “no” now.

American consumers will never be able to affect gas prices for one simple reason: materialistic American Capitalist Pig human nature. The idea of a national boycott would never ever work because you could never get everyone to do it. Think of the millions of people who wouldn’t do it simply because they’ve got to get to work in the morning. Then add on the shipping industry, then the public transportation departments, then the private transportation industry (airlines), and then just for flavor the extremists who don’t believe there’s really a problem anyway (what the fuck is wrong with some people, really?). That’s thousands, perhaps millions of combustion engine vehicles filling up daily. Then there’s fearless leader who was an oil baron before he became PODUS, and will continue to be one once he’s out of office (how can someone so inherently stupid make so much money?). Anyway, that’s my two cents.

On a positive note, I may have a miniscule bit of a gig in the works. My guy Rich who’s found me what little work I have had has just finished doing sound for a group that’s producing a 30-minute T.V. show about cars…you know, the kind you see on Spike or TLC or something. Anyway, they’re making a 3 or 4 minute sales spot to market it with and they want music for it. Enter, the Pikey. Yea!!! Keep ye olde fingers crossed and hope they’ll let me do it.

that is all...
