Things I Like: YouTube

No website can beat it in video content alone. Along with copyrighted material that has ads (hulu has it beat on that one though), companies that post some for free, and classic videos done by regular people, this has become one of everyone's favorite sites. 

Former Senator Rick Santorum Believe Social Security Problems Are Because Of Our Abortion Culture

The former Senator for Pennsylvania recently said that the problems with our social security lie because of our "abortion culture" saying that the system would be more stable if we had 1/3 of the Americans who were aborted.  

Random Funny Picture Dump #23: Steve Urkel for President

quite a jump

Talk about taking stuff too literally 

So that's where Lady Gaga gets it from

If only

Dora is so offensive 

Urkel for President?

People I Hate: Ann Coulter

Ann Coulter is a book writer, and one of Fox New's biggest idiots. She hates liberals, Muslims, and think women should lose the right to vote because if they did; republicans would always win. 

Here are some quotes

"As the leader of twelve apostles, even Jesus had more executive experience than Obama."

"My libertarian friends are probably getting a little upset now but I think that's because they never appreciate the benefits of local fascism."

"I think there should be a literacy test and a poll tax for people to vote."

"I think [women] should be armed but should not vote ... women have no capacity to understand how money is earned. They have a lot of ideas on how to spend it ... it's always more money on education, more money on child care, more money on day care."

Not all Muslims may be terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims — at least all terrorists capable of assembling a murderous plot against America that leaves 7,000 people dead in under two hours.

"There are a lot of bad Republicans; there are no good Democrats."

"Liberals hate America, they hate flag-wavers, they hate abortion opponents, they hate all religions except Islam, post 9/11. Even Islamic terrorists don't hate America like liberals do."

Government Wants To Ban Big Plastic Walking Balls

These big plastic balls are big enough for humans and are popular in many carnivals, and whatnot. The government is afraid that people don't have enough air, no emergency exit, and if the balls punctures you could risk drowning. I think they should be confined to amusement parks in very shallow water or inside a gym or something. I understand their reasoning.

People I Like: Carrie Underwood

I used to watch American Idol back in the day. Usually for the sucky first round asshats, but I remember the second the world knew her. I was on the computer while my mom was watching the 2nd rounds she song that "let freedom ring" song about as perfect as the woman who originally sung it. After that we supported her until she won the finals and became the 4th American Idol. The whole show was downhill after her. 

Fact of the Day: Jimmy Carter Shot His Sister

As kids, Jimmy Carter's sister threw a wrench at him, he later shot her in the behind with a BB gun. 

My Top Ten N64 Games Honorable Mention: Pokemon Snap

A rather gimmicky idea to get us to buy more pokecrap was a decent one. Travel on a pokemon safari and take pictures of pokemon. 

It's aged a bit these days, but trying to get the right pose to earn more points was addicting. Though the judging can be downright cruel and the camera pointing slow to move. 

My Top Ten N64 Games #2: Super Mario 64

After epic adventures on NES, and the SNES, Mario need to jump straight into full 3D. Super Mario 64 changed the Mario gameplay to make it fit the 3D change instead of it being Super Mario Bros with 3D polygons instead of sprites.
Walking around the huge world was amazing at the time. It seem like there was so much to explore, so many secrets to find, and even random glitches to exploit like trying to jump on top of the castle without using the cannon. 
The only things I didn't like about Super Mario 64 was the lack of variety in the bosses (most of the time it's the same Bowser fight), and not too many power-ups this time. The N64 original is king among platformers though, and I'm excited to hear that Super Mario 64 DS can use the 3DS's analog stick.

Just Got Done Watching The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Season 2

My girlfriend got the second season from her brother for Christmas and after some time we just got done watching the whole box set. 

The story leaves off randomly after the 1st season. Not much has changed for the SOS Brigade. After a few episodes, Haruhi decides to tell Kyon to bring his bike so they can all go to the community pool, and other summer fun stuff before their last 2 weeks of summer are over. 

They then realize that Haruhi (who unknowingly has the powers of God) has put then in an eternal 2 week time loop that the only person who can remember what's going on is the alien Yuki Nagato while Kyon and Itsuki Koizumi only have feelings of deja-vu. They finally put two and two together when Mikuru Asahina says she can't travel back to the future when there's no future to go to. They then replay the same episode like 8 times with different clothes and wording. It's torture. 

The whole endless eight you can skip the whole middle part. Watch the 1st, 2nd, and last episodes. Don't worry about the middle of it. The other parts of Season 2 are pretty good and funny with the finale being a series of episodes where they make the movie for the film festival as seen in the first season. Not as good as the the first season, but I enjoyed it.

People I Hate: Randy Jackson

Ok maybe hate is not the word, but the guy is worthless. He's the last original judge to stay on American Idol which needs to end anyways, and all he's known for is going "yeah dawg". 

People I Like: Stan Lee

The man is a comic legend. Without him there would be no Marvel comics as we know it. Spiderman, Fantastic Four, X-Men, and many other great franchises might have never existed without him. His cameos in the comic book movies are pretty good too.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Stars in New Animated Series "The Governator"

Taking good humor to his nickname after becoming Governor of Califronia, Arnold is staring in a new animated series called The Governator. Comic Legend Stan Lee is set to help produce the new series. 

Judge Judy Sent to Hospital

Judge Judy, the star of the hit court tv series was sent to the hospital recently. She is apparently feeling much better, and will return back to work in April. Good for her.

Killer Whale (Orca) Who Killed Trainer Returns to Showbiz

The orca that dragged a trainer by her ponytail and drowned her by accident, has gone back to work. The folks at Seaworld are playing it smart as no trainer has gotten in the pool with the massive animals. It's like Siegfried and Roy kind of thing. Their tigers would never hurt them on purpose, but they can hurt you by curiosity or playfully because they don't realize how fragile human beings are to their beastly bodies. 

Things I Hate: Naruto

I never got into Naruto, just too kiddy for the time in my life, and blonde ninjas in orange jumpsuits seem like shit that came out of Dragon Ball Z rip-offs.

Things I Like: The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Season 1

My girlfriend had the anime dvd set of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Vol. 1; so we got to watch it last year. 
The story stars Kyon, a normal high school student in Japan.
He crosses paths with Haruhi Suzumiya, a classmate who's bored and quite strange. She says the only thing she wants is to meet aliens, time travelers, or espers
They then meet Yuki Nagato, a bookworm who almost never speaks, and when she does she seems inhuman. She turns out to be a non-organic alien from outer space.
Mikuru Asahina seems to be a very shy and nervous girl and high school student. She turns out to be a time traveler from the future. She also gets to dress up in hentai-inspiring costumes. 
The last of the main team is Itsuki Koizumi who turns out to be, you guessed it; an esper. He can only use powers in certain times and spaces so he is mostly a goofy weirdo who worships Haruhi for one reason. Him and his group of espers believe she is the being most cultures refer to as God. This turns out to be true, though Miss Suzumiya doesn't realize it. 
The show can go from goofy to serious in a heartbeat. It's actually quite good with lots of humor, good storylines, and a very uniqueness to it. Defiantly check it out if you can.

Arizona Outlaws Abortions Based on Gender and Race

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer (R) signed a controversial bill that would ban abortions for those who get them just based on the baby's gender or race, and the people who get caught will face felony charges. Does she really think this is China? And based on race? Do women sleep with but would not have the child of another race? Sounds like a waste of time, and just another step towards fascism.

SC Bans Raccoon Meat in Store

A grocery store in South Carolina was ordered by the state to get rid of it's Raccoon meat that they had available for sale in the freezers. Only in the south, where rabies runs wild.

My Top Ten N64 Games #3: The Legend of the Zelda: Majora's Mask

Majora's Mask was the long awaited sequel to Ocarina of Time. Despite sharing similar game-play, it's quite different from all the 3D games. The plot and setting is a lot darker and more gothic I guess you might say. The Apocalypse story is bit out of place for Nintendo's tradition. 

Even though I didn't like it as much as some of the other games in the series, Majora's Mask was one of the greatest quests to take on the N64. The 3 day system did get annoying, and only having 4 dungeons is a draw back, but it does offer great side-quests. I collected every single mask, and got the fierce deity and got disappointed when young Link transformed formed into a weird looking adult version that played just like the Adult Link in Ocarina of Time.

My Top Ten N64 Games Honorable Mention: Pokemon Stadium

Pokemon Stadium was first game to bring our beloved Pokemon into 3D. Which granted it served it's point damn well with our pokamans being shown with the finest graphics the N64 could make. 
It was a shame that was basically all it would let you do. No real single player mode, but there were some fun mini-games, and you could play your copy of Red/Blue/Yellow on the TV.

Random Funny Picture Dump #22: Have You Seen My Disco Stick?

God damn Mila Kunis

I'm old too

Hahaha forever alone

Explain that creepo

I don't trust Rachel Ray's cooking anymore. Or at least Tails Magazine's grammar.
