Woes of the Weary Writer

Is every English major-writer-blogger just too freaking cool to admit they tire endlessly over revising copy after copy? Have they ever actually lost sleep trying to find the right words? Sure, it was pretty easy to get straight A’s and B’s at my state college but I did work at it. I can tell how […]

The American Dream: Bed Bug Killers or Within A Mouse’s Click of Desire?

I thought you would enjoy reading this spam post from “Bed Bug Killer” because for some reason David Thier has a cult following of pest eradicators… who knew? Bed Bug Killer killbedbug@rocketmail.com 2011/07/15 at 3:34 am It is great that we all have our freedom of expression and you can belt out anything that you […]

Wasting Time & Money In America

I didn’t have enough money for books my first semester of college and my school loans were thirty days from my bank account so I got my first credit card. Five years and some odd months later I have a few more credit cards, a few loans and a lot of bills going into delinquency, […]

NEWsexMACHINE

Just think: what is this new machine? What happens between a key and its effect? I can manipulate read what I want, think what I want.   First, I could only play chess. Now, I have artificial intelligence that stretches between rapidly moving fingertips.   Words form between us actions have no sound: right-click, close […]

South Park Moment

I think I’ve learned something today… I learned that maybe jokes are not as funny when they are converted into status form… or maybe I’ve learned that technology has made us forget any sense of humor we might have otherwise had… or maybe… I learned… who the fuck cares? I hate when random people comment […]

Kevin Costner: Ocean of Dreams, Dances with BP or Oilworld?

Kevin Costner, one of the first “stars” spotted in the Gulf coast has introduced a ‘dream machine’ that will separate oil from water. Some are calling it the Deepwater Horizon spill, some the Gulf oil spill and others still call it BP’s mess (all are accurate) but what they aren’t talking about is that many […]

What if BP did it on purpose?

This is just a thought, but what if BP really did it? What if they made this disaster on purpose in order to gain more oil in a shorter period of time. They certainly don’t seem concerned with stopping the flow, just collecting the crude-water. Does anyone know how much the rig was able to […]

Turtles, Manatees and BP, “OIL, MY!”

I don’t care about the series finale of “Lost.” I don’t return the glances and rabid white teeth of celebrities at the cash register. I don’t watch much reality television, in fact, I canceled cable a few months ago and never looked back. I find that even without my daily dose of 24-hour ticker-vision, 2 […]

Mandy on “Candy”

I just watched a really awesome movie called “Candy.” It made me realize that the kind of life I’m bound to have is one of the “drug addict” variety, not that I am going to be on drugs necessarily, but that my life will have moments of extreme bliss followed by periods of despair. The […]

Avatar

SERIOUSLY I hate when I get spam comments on my blog and I hate it even more when it’s some advertisement for Avatar so, FUCK YOU, AVATAR! Issac Maez mustwatchmovies.net masterone@yahoo.com 82.31.82.41 2010/01/25 at 4:45pm Good stuff. Best movie I have seen in a while is Avatar hands down. That movie was well done and […]

The Missing Pot

this song was honestly inspired by missing beans, and they are dearly missed… the word “Recurrence” was accidentally pasted there by me but i thought it was interesting and left it in. the slashes are from when i left the document open and my cat jumped on the keyboard and scared the crap out of […]

Business School is… BULLSHIT!

This is a comment I received on a message I sent the University of Northern Iowa where I am currently a student and employee. My original message was about the declining quality of the education at UNI and my personal dissatisfaction with a proposed $100 surcharge for the spring semester (after financial aid has been […]

Education: Is it Worth the Money or Effort?

I am disappointed in my school and their decision to charge students a $100 surcharge when the nearest community college has found a way around a similar fee at their institution. This surcharge comes with additional increases in fees and tuition totaling over 6% for 2010-11! “As a senior and a student employee (for most […]
