My Revolution has Begun!!!

I found this news story today and I am elated - the revolution I have dreamed of has begun!!

BOGOTA (Reuters) - Two clowns were shot and killed by an unidentified gunman during their performance at a traveling circus in the eastern Colombian town of Cucuta, police said Wednesday.

The gunman burst into the Circo del Sol de Cali Monday night and shot the clowns in front of an audience of 20 to 50 people, local police chief Jose Humberto Henao told Reuters. One of the clowns was killed instantly and the second died the next day in hospital.

"The killings had nothing to do with the show the victims were performing at the time of the incident," Henao said in a telephone interview. "We are investigating the motive."

With an entrance fee of under 50 U.S. cents, Circo del Sol de Cali attracts mostly poor Colombians. It pitched it tents in Cucuta, near the border with Venezuela, earlier this month.

"The clowns came out to give their show and then this guy came out shooting them," one audience member told local television. "It was terrible."

Oxymoron and Audioslave

I had a quick reminder while reading an article about something that really bothers me. I can't believe that the term "Majority-Minority" is being used by anyone especially the media (wait - that does not shock me) Another political/media bullshit term so people can keep their free programs. You can't be both!

On the lighter side, had a visit with Audioslave and I noticed that he had a new Apple IPod Shuffle. I said "Damn that thing is small" to which he responded "that's what she said".... your not supposed to call that out on yourself mang!!!!!!!

Points to Ponder

I got this in an e-mail and thought would share with all of you.

Thoughts for 2007

#10 Life is sexually transmitted.

#9 Good health is merely the slowest rate at which one can die.

#8 Men have two emotions: hungry and horny. If you see him without an erection, make him a sandwich.

#7 Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use the internet and they won't bother you for weeks.

#6 Some people are like a slinky... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.

#5 Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in the hospital dying of nothing.

#4 All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

#3 Why does a slight tax increase cost you two hundred dollars, and a substantial tax cut saves you thirty cents???

#2 In the 60's, people took LSD to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.


We know exactly where one cow with mad-cow-disease is located among the millions and millions of cows in America , but we haven't a clue as to where thousands of illegal immigrants and terrorists are located. Maybe we should put the Department of Agriculture in charge of immigration.

I was taking with Audioslave the other day and I told him "Your like school in the summertime - NO CLASS!" and I asked him to name the show that was from and his response............ Head of the Class... he's lucky we like him.

Tough Shit Mickey by Conflict. This was one of songs from my youth that inspired me to go Veggie for a while.

Since I watch way to much Food Network I figured I would one day come up with a great twist on an old favorite and today I think I did it.

Make Rice Krispy treats but.... instead of Rice Krispies....... wait for it...... wait for it............

Super Sugar Crisp!!!!

Thai is going to ROCK!!!

I have asked "Your Mom" to make it for me since Mom's make the treats... I have HOPE she will come through for me.

Now it's your turn - lets see what you got out there??

Out with the Gay

Since my last few posts have been considered by some as not hardcore enough for the Birdman, I present the following great scene:

Now it is not showing as a video as that requires a YouTube login which I do not want to get as I just had to convert to a Google login for this and that is the most confusing process EVER! It says it will give you a Google account but it has to be an existing account but how can it be existing if I do not have one.....I then went to create a GMail account and you have to have a cell phone....Fuck Me!! I no longer like Google as much - freakin a-holes.

Sansa MP3 Song of the Day

My 2 cents on people and a small armageddon

Since everyone else has posted about people, rooms and taking up your mental space I thought I would chime in with my thoughts., but this time, on the positive side, for all those in my life who help make it!!!

Here are some SHOUT OUTS bitches!!!!

I consider myself to be very, very lucky when it comes to people in my life. My closest friends are my friends that I had in high school and even one that I have know since I was 10 (that is 28 year for anyone who wants to know how aged I am) I don't think of them as friends but as my brothers and I feel truly blessed to still have them in my life despite all the ups and downs. I think it is rare these days to be my age and have many "over 20 year" friends.

I have also rarely made really good friends from people at work - but with people like YOUR MOM, AVMAN and The Wrider, and other non-bloggers at the Merc, I have totally lucked out again on having quality friends around me that I can and do enjoy blogging and e-mailing with. Thanks to all of you!!!!

With the excpetion of my dad, my family has all moved out of Buena Park and we have ended up within 5 minutes of each other. Yes we have issues but I think we have all recognized a need to be close no matter what and that is a good feeling - I always know they are there and they know I am here also.

I even have a great father and mother in law which again - seems to be a rare commodity these days. They had no education (father in law - 3rd grade in Costa Rica and mother in law 7 or 8th grade), father in law came to America at 18 with one suitcase and no english. They had a house and 3 children by age 24 and they are both retired and not yet 60. They have been great to me and excellent grandparents to my girls. They are an excellent example of what hard work and honesty can bring you in America.

Finally my wife - what can I say.. she saw something in me that no one else did. (lord knows what it was - she says she likes a guy with glasses... ) She worked hard to support us during my last year of college so I could finish and has always believed in my ability and has always gave me confidence (except when it comes to home repair for some odd reason.... :-) )

Now my life ain't perfect by no means (i.e other in-laws) but sometimes you gotta accentuate the positive to keep yourself on an even keel.

Now for some armageddon:

I'm the Mama said she likes the song from my last blog - that makes 2 in a year.... I think that counts as some form of a roll...... but then maybe she did not read my comment about Sting in her blog about the Police...
