tahi brain

Visual representations of the state of my mind.

Boxes full of nothing.

Themselves composed of discarded, irrelevant, redundant information.

Pretty though, in their own way.

Big Foot the Monster


From the "Toys -backwards R- Us" ad copy above: "He can throw a ball, lift weights, dream, walk, talk, rap and more! "

Sorry, "dream"?!

I got no beef with hundred dollar toys that pound their fists, rap, and roll over, but 'dream'? No thank you. No toys with aspirations in my house.

You're a toy, and you're always gonna be a toy.

"If You Are On A Cell-phone You Will Not Be Served."

About four years ago, fed up with being treated like an ATM by the pinheads on their cellphones, I put up this sign at the video store. I also posted it on Photobucket, emailed it to a few fellow retail-monkeys, put it on my MySpace page (This pic is a later one, but shows the original sign in its original place: http://www.myspace.com/ginsoak/photos/61960451 ).

Last night I went to the midnight premiere of "Scott Pilgram vs the World". I'm a big fan of the director Edgar Wright, and the early reviews were great, so I decided to catch it early.

About 10 minutes into the film the Scott character gets a call from his bitchy sister Stacey, who works as a barista. Something in the background catches my eye; look at the sign over her left shoulder:

And for easier comparison:

Four years after putting this up out of frustration with shitty customers it works its way to Hollywood, where some set designer/art director decides it's a good background sign for a bitchy barista....

Happy birthday, to my favorite President.

And don't let the bastards get you down; it took Clinton over 5 years to turn around the Republican-gutted economy he inherited. I still believe: Yes We Can©.

Psalm 98:4

"Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth:
make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise."

Apparently Jesus was in Dethklok.
