July 10, 1040

Lady Godiva rides naked on horseback to force her husband, the Earl of Mercia, to lower taxes.

This day in history was busy

Andrew Dice Clay CRIED on Arsenio Hall in 1990.
Coca Cola announces it will resume selling old formula Coke...minus the cocaine. 1985
Playboy publishes full-frontal nude photographs of Madonna. 1985. She doesn't give a fuck.
Rolling Stones score their 1st #1, "I Can't Get No Satisfaction" in 1965.
in 1929, U.S. issues newer, smaller-sized paper currency. THEY STILL HAVEN'T GOTTEN IT RIGHT!

OK. Three more.

Thank you, Steve AND COMPANY.

Can't access your email?
Oh? All day?
TOO BAD! FUCK OFF! Love, Steve

Gee, yeah. We KNOW it's almost an ENTIRE business day...but really. We're all busy here in Cupertino getting massages, pedicures, having lunch, and really just takin' it easy.

I mean, you folks don't know how HARD we worked on the 3G iPhone, and so what if you're fucking inconvenienced? Don't like it? Try WINDOZE!

Thanks SO much for the warning.
If I don't get the job I'm applying for because I can't access my dot-Mac mail,
you'll know why.

What happened to my dot-Mac?

Dear Steve: FIX MY CALENDAR!!!


OK. So I wake up, and with Mr Sandman still clogging my tearducts, I signed on to my dotMac account...and quickly see it's now the CLOUD of MobileMe.

Do me a small favor? FIX THE FUCKING CALENDAR.
It's THURSDAY the 10th of July. NOT TUESDAY.

Luv ya.

Thanks to Mom!
She finally made it to the blog!
Don't tell her!

The following is the philosophy of Charles Schultz, the creator of the 'Peanuts' comic strip. You don't have to actually answer the questions. Just read the e-mail straight through, and you'll get the point.

1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America.
4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winner for best actor and actress.
6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.

How did you do?
The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. These are no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners .

Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.
2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.
5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with .


The lesson: The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the ones who care.

Don't worry about the world coming to an end today.
It's already tomorrow in Australia

Get a FREE gallon of gas + 1 Lotto Ticket!

As I previously posted about THE DIAL SOAP COMPANY, they have a patently offensive (read: anti-gay) remark on the back of their hair let's make 'em pay up!

Here's the dirt:

On Schwarzkopf's gøt2b MAGNETîK (UPC Code: 52336 33768), the back of the tube has directions for use, as well as this choice remark:
gøt2B MAGNETîK styling gel contains pheromones – a MAN'S secret edge to make THE LADIES take notice. So get your game on...because this stuff delivers firm hold and natural shine – AND gets THE LADIES revved up.
Are you one of the many gay guys who have actually used this stuff? If you are, you are entitled to a $6 refund because of the "offensive and insensitive" copy on the product.

If you AREN'T one of the many gay guys who use this product, and STILL find it offensive, give 'em a call, and with the UPC Code provided, insist on a refund...and you'll get a $6 check in the mail (suggested retail price).

I think if enough of us call and INSIST on a refund, Schwarzkopf (which owns The Dial - soap - Company), they'll get the message...

and you'll get $6.

Enough for a gallon of gas and a $1 Lotto ticket in the state of your residence.

C'mon! Let's make 'em 'fess up.

And if you are feeling particularly generous, send the $6 to the charity of your choice!

Here's their phone number (for personal grooming products):


There's a new cat in town...

I upgraded all my Macs to Leopard.

Let the incompatibilities begin!

Calling Lee Crum

If I'm not mistaken, didn't the photographer Lee Crum first come up with this image? I remember a black man, amputated below the waist, sitting in a similar "setting" but can't seem to find the original.

And, again, if I'm not mistaken, I think a similar scene to the brief scene in JACOB'S LADDER was also in Clive Barker's HELLRAISER.

Help me out here!

Digital photography has really seen the end of respect for those of us who came up the hard way: in a wet darkroom with a manual camera.

I don't get this shit with these nightclub photographers, travelling all over the world with a glorified point 'n shoot, making sure every MySpace slut and himbo has their moment (or pixels) for all to see.

I don't get it. I never will get it, and I'm super-glad I'm not in that circle.

Dead before 40. Guaranteed.


666 days until my 50th.
Better not waste 'em!

Birthday Convergence?

Nancy Reagan + George Bush + The Dalai Lama?

Only one of 'em got it right!
