Dope Media of the Day: Trunks & Paws

Progressive Rock.

King Crimson, Rush, Genesis.

These are the bands with pictures over the definition of “Pretense“, one of the worst offenses of Douchebags everywhere. I mean, I can take some proggy songs, some of the time, but when some frat boy plunks $5 into the jukebox, I pray that we aren’t in store for 80 minutes of rock opera crooning and over the top drum solos. [[1]]Although I gotta admit, you get your band for your buck with the 10 min+ songs.[[1]]

Prog Rock is one thing, but I am not ashamed to admit: Pink Floyd… is a great band. Ever since I was first enthralled by “Time”, and the rest of Dark Side of the Moon (the pinnacle of stoner rock){{1}}, The Wall (We Don’t Need No Education), both super selling mega classic rock blockbusters. [[1]]Anyone remember chillin’ out after the party, sleepin’ in the back of the truck, buzzed and cold, but happy to be among friends, underneath the starry, starry night?[[1]] Although DSotM will always be my first and favorite, my really close second is not “The Wall”, but “Animals”.

Pink Floyd’s tribute to George Orwell’s story, “Animal Farm”, this album has a short, but sweet tracklist:

  1. Pigs on the Wing, Pt. 1 (1:25)
  2. Dogs (17:08)
  3. Pigs (Three Different Ones) (11:28)
  4. Sheep (10:20)
  5. Pigs on the Wing, Pt. 2 (1:25)

Songs there are few, but each of the 4 animals get over 10 minutes of haunting singing and guitar solos. Sung from the perspective of the animals, songwriters Roger Waters and David Gilmour imbue each animal with a negative trait. Waters—the mastermind behind the spiral of despair that is The Wall—wrote all of the songs except one.

Juice ‘n’ Drink

Shannon links to Dave Chappelle on Juice. That guy is so funny.

Luckily (?) I’m half asian so I got the JUICE that comes in the can (thank god for the commissary). None of that carton shit tho (I always begged my mom for the Donald Duck OJ), that 40 cents a can shit (at least it used to be). But it was always made hella fucking watered down so it would last longer.

Went to college and I had it the way its supposed to be made.

“GOD DAMN THIS IS FUCKIN SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!” Too sweet even. My mom hella brainwashed me. Now I hella water down juice and shit. Thriftyness wins again.

But when I was little little and we were poor poor, I always had the fake kool-aid. Red. It’d always be bed time and I’d say “Can I have some red juice?” My mom cups her hand: “Here you go” =((((((((((((((((((( >=(

And it annoys me that that powered nestea shit is called TEA. Dammmit its drink! nesDRINK.

PS: White people eat cheese. See Boondocks, ep.1

Star Wars Gangsta Generations

Star Wars Gangsta Generations

Yeah... Imma go see it. Gotta support, right?

Yeah... Imma go see it. Gotta support, right?

As I noted in another post, Puff Daddy is fucking ridiculous. Who knows how much bank he’s gonna make offa pimping Biggie’s ghost once again. Sigh. Victory is his. Always. At least Derek Luke (Antwone Fisher) is gettin paid too.

And have ya’ll seen the Sweet 16{{1}} with his son?

“Begun this, Clone War has.”

Homeboy has got the ego of his dad fosho… I dunno Puffy’s lifestyle growin’ up, but I assume he was a hustla (I guess we might find out soon though). This kid might have the swagger, but he sure as hell ain’t gonna have the drive.

And to all the haters: No I don’t know StarWars quotes off the top of my head. I googled “clone quotes”. But I do know the Star Wars Gangsta Rap by heart.

*pimp walk*

Yet, I didn’t know it spawned a sequel.

Jar Jar is kinda racist though. The “X” hat is a trigger and then the whole chasin’ after the white women thing… yuck. Then there’s C3PO…{{2}} Disregarding that though, shit is pretty funny. Jabba rap… haha. A lot more “gangsta”{{3}} that the first at least.

But the original is still the best starwarz related shit ever.{{4}} Fuck the remake, or the movie versions. And you gotta love the LL reference at the end.

So yeah, that’s about the extent of my Starwarz infatuation. Me and the rest of the FHP used to sing this shit in Chemistry… if I remember right I was Yoda (I’m good with voices). Good times.

Never really cared for the movies… they’re aiiight, but I’d rather watch some Macross or something. Either way, fuck the haters, Imma go grab a gin & tonic.

[[1]]Ugh don’t ask. Ever since the boo came into my life I’ve found myself watching more crap on TV. Not by choice…usually. Why can’t she just stick to cartoons? Although she did show me the awesomeness that is Food Network. I guess we’re even.[[1]]

[[2]]How often I find myself taking off my social justice hat, especially when it comes to the shit that makes me laugh… oh world and your opposing truths.[[2]]

[[3]]That’s quote-un-quote.[[3]]

[[4]]PS: The original was actually uploaded on Newgrounds/Atom, but that site is so ad-ridden these days, that I opted for the lower quality YT versions. You can go here for the first one and here for the second if you want to see the good shit.[[4]]

I’m “With It” too! I’m fab.

Do not ingest.

Do not ingest.

…Actually, I’m nooooot. But my Big Boo Animated is… when she wants to be. Ammy can dress with the best of ‘em and her Rainbow Robot T rivals some of my favorite Uniqlo prints. (I wish I was in Japan for the Grand Prix…)

On another note… Maybe if I get this for her she’ll stop asking me to drive 300+ miles to get her sleepyhead some icecream. Usually between the hours of 12am~4am. Who am I kidding. That’s a 24/7 kinda request. Haha… it’s all love!


PS: I saw on VH1 (the realicrap station) the other day: “If it weren’t for fashion, I’d be dead. Thought that was kinda dramatic… but I’m sure its true. Fool looked like a fuck-up.

Google on Google Chrome – comic book

So google finally announced their browser. You really gotta check this out; I’m sure it’ll be revolutionary in some aspect (open source, memory management, other architecture, etc.).

But what’s really of interest— to the artist in me at least—the geek in me is afk, shitting himself over the wonderful possibilities as well as the horrible implications for internet monopoly—is Scott McCloud’s beautiful & super informative comicbook describing what Chrome is & how it functions. McCloud captures the images of various coders and designers, and use them to explain Chrome’s features to users and dispense tech-talk to the developers. And man… If you’ve read McCloud’s other books, you know that McCloud has a wonderful grasp on the medium of comics, and can explain just about anything through a few, lines & a word bubble.

The part below perfectly illustrated what I perceive to be one of the most frequented and most frustrating part of a browser: the URL bar.



In the new version of firefox, the “awesome bar” tries to give suggestions when you type into the box. But a lot of the times, these results just end up cluttering the short box and makes things even more difficult. In fact, while creating this post, I typed “hagure” into the URL bar and instead of taking me to hagure-metaru.net, I got a link for http://hagure-metaru.net/wordpress/wp-admin/press-this.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fblogoscoped.com%2Fgoogle-chrome%2F&t=Google%20on%20Google%20Chrome%20-%20comic%20book&s=&v=2

That is not helpful at all. I look at the first part of the URL, then my eyes glaze over at the trailing gobbledygook, and I feel like the programmer in the last panel. Here’s hopin’ Google comes through.


Here’s to the Google Monopoly… a reluctant cheer. May you guard my (and the rest of the world’s) data/life with wisdom, courage and justice.
