Musings and Realizations

graffiti6.jpg– I am really sick of the stupid graffiti around the city; mainly because it is unoriginal. The big thing still remains defacing movie posters… This entails either drawing a mustache, blacking out a tooth of one of the actors, or best of all, drawing a penis and testicles in the mouth region. This is the same lame graffiti that these punks were doing when my parents were kids, and when I was a kid. At least be original!

– I have always loved kids, so in the subway, I will play games with them. Peek-a-boo, making faces, anything like that. I attribute it to the fact that my maturity level and intelligence level marginally trump theirs. However, as of late, I have noticed that the kids seem to get sick of my games before I do. That is when you know you have a problem! I mean, if these kids are thinking “alright dude, I get it. When you cover your eyes, I am supposed to think you are gone. It’s enough! You’re embarrasing yourself,” there is a serious issue.

– What ever happened to UHF? Do those stations still exist?

– OK, so as usual, I am WAY late in picking up the trends, but I recently started getting into MySpace. Quickly, after scouring through profiles from people from my high school, I notice that MySpace has a similar phenomenon that the internet had, and still has… People putting up a profile with a million hoodads, whatzits, and bells/whistles but no real content. Some of these profiles don’t have ONE WORD about the person, except that they like “Fiddy Cent,” but has like 4 songs playing at once, all types of special cursors, background images, embedded files, and sound effects. The worst are these jerks who put up a dark color background, and then lighten the font color. Are they trying to keep the thing a secret?

– In Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out (which any guy in the US will say is one of the best games ever invented, if not number 1), was the black trainer guy supposed to be Al Roker? He looked A LOT like him. My friend Shannon pointed out that he also resembles Stanley from “The Office,” the best show on TV!

    I have blogger cred? I’m shocked! I thought it was already gone with THIS POST.

    Is Al Roker fat again?

    I hate all the crap videos and music that start to play on myspace. If you are using Firefox, download the Greasemonkey extension then install the Myspace Crap Blocker http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/3299

    Nope, I believe he is still thinner, but not “thin… ” He is one lovable, chubby weatherman.

    I have no problem with organized graffiti. But, two things.

    1) When it is everywhere, it becomes an eyesore, in my opinion.

    2) As I mentioned in the post, it is unoriginal! People do the exact same things all over the place.

    I am talking less about tags, and more about defacing of signs, movie posters, and public buildings.
