Annoyingly rubbish poetry in adverts.

Maybe this is because I'm the kind of person who still has to read at least one Charles Bukowski poem a day, but I recently saw something that annoyed the hell out of me.



I was watching TV when an advert came on advertising a perfume or aftershave (I can't remember which) by Puff Daddy. (Who, I've just been told, is now called P Diddy.) It was the usual black and white video of him in slow motion over the top of which Diddy (why can't I say that without thinking of Ken Dodd?) mumbled… Continue

Eye exams: BAD. Chocolate time machines: GOOD.

If the human eye was meant to be touched by things, you would not instinctively close your eye anytime something goes near it. This make perfect sense to me but not apparently the good people at Vision Express.

I have worn glasses for most of my life and therefore have had the pleasure of bi-yearly eye exams for some time now. However due in no small part to an accidental childhood viewing of 'A clockwork orange' I have always associated any form… Continue

Great Britain is violating it's nuclear disarmament agreement, again.

So since the late 50's Great Britain (along with all other members of the UN) have been signed up to a nuclear disarmament agreement that says we will not build any more nuclear warheads and will, over time, get rid of are current supply of them. However earlier this year the British government decided that intonational law and moral decency are clearly over rated and now plan to spend £50 billion on there fleet of Trident warhead carrying nuclear submarines they use to scare the crap out of… Continue

Amelie Nothomb is far to talented and must be stopped!!!

I love Amelie Nothomb, she's intelligent, funny, attractive, talented, etc., etc. In short she's all the things I'm not but wish I was, including a fantastic writer.



She puts out a book every September (Though as my French is some what less than fluent I have to wait a few months for someone to translate them before I can read them.) and there always good, to good in fact.



I'm not a writer (Though god knows I try to be.) but I imagine other writers hate Amelie. Think about… Continue

Two books that changed my life.

When I was fourteen I was encouraged by my high school biology teacher to read Charles Darwin's "Origin of the Species" after I asked some questions about evolution. I wasn't smart enough to understand all of it then and I'm still not smart enough to understand all of it now but what small parts of it I did sink in changed my views of not only myself but also the world around me.



I'd never really thought about life before reading the book. In fact at that point if it didn't involve… Continue

OK I didn't even have to hit "play" to know what the video of "The most amazing and strangely beautiful thing I [you] have ever seen." is....I have watched that more times than I can recall. And frankly, I must agree with you.
Do you have any clue where that was filmed?? (I've always been curious, but too lazy to do any research!)

Thank you.

BTW there appears to be a typo in your Website link ("youtibe" instead of "youtube")

Now that I've typed in "youtube" directly, I'm going to check out some of your videos.

My favorite character? I dunno. Maybe Odama, or Starbuck.
But i really love cylon number 6.

Yeah, Wow, huh? Athough at least these days we are fighting because of things like, "For the last time, don't take over the world with communism/ destroy the world with nuclear weapons." Instead of "This is MY land! No it isn't, I saw it first!" ...right? I guess I just thought the humor was gross, and it seemed weird that he would write a book to make people take war seriously, and then joke about it. *Sigh* hope the next Blurbing book is happy.

Also Kurt Vonnegut is clearly sexist. Why were all his female characters domestic idiots to the extreme? And why did he feel the need to comment on their level of sexual attractiveness even when it was unnecessary and irrelevant? I do not know.

I didn't mind the different style, I enjoyed it. I happened to find the humor to be extremely tasteless and inappropriate in a couple of different ways. I actually wouldn't have recognized 90% of it as humor if I hadn't kept reading that the book is supposed to be funny. And it was painful to, for the first time in memory, really realize that we have always, and very recently, brutally massacred each other, we are, currently, brutally massacring each other... and despite the fact that books like slaughter house five have been written, read, and praised, we will, continue to, brutality massacre each other. Ouch! I'll have to check out Valis.
