GH Erotic Fan Fic & I had no pants

I m ust make this quick because I need to get out the door to go to some theater, but I had to put this down now and with expand later.

First, The Warehouse as what I believe is the first Guitar Hero Erotic Fanfic. Yes, it is that glorious.

Secondly, I had no pants on the subway today and that was quite enjoyable too. Some pictures are already appearing on the ol' Flickr. Try searching for the tag "no pants" and then do "Most Recent." I know one woman got a great picture of me (she showed me on her camera). I can't wait to get a copy.

Victory! Kind of.

CBS has changed the description of CSI:NY's episode "Obsession." Instead of "Idiotarod" it is now "Idiot-Run." Now I am guessing the picked "Idiot-Run" because they had some "Those guys are idiots" jokes in script. I still would have gone with "Idiotapolis 500."

I am sure the episode is still offensive to shopping cart racers, but what are you going to do?

Robert Anton Wilson, 1932-2007

Robert Anton Wilson pass away. He was one of America's great thinkers. Yes, he was bit of rthe crazy. But he was my kind of crazy. If you haven't read his work, you should do so. You might hate it. It might make no sense to you. But you owe it to yourself anyway.

Someone on a forum in the internets pointed out that it was a shame he didn't die one the 23rd. (As we all know the 23 is an important conspiracy number. Keep an eye out for it... you will start noticing it everywhere... especiallu on clock in movies.) But as I pointed out...

R.I.P. R.A.W.

401, class 2

First, let me be clear. I like the class, I love the teacher, I dig my classmates.

Tonight, I, as they say sucked ass. Yes, it was rough. I was stuck on a train to Suckville, I knew it was a train to Suckville, and I just could not get off.

But I learned from it. I know what I did and I know why I did it and (I think) I know how to improve.

But Suckville is not a fun town.

COBRA Brings CBS to its knees!

Wow! Just wow! It is amazing watch people take back the night. COBRA (Carts of Brooklyn Racing Association) took it straight to CBS. Around the country at CBS affiliates, COBRA members rallied their fellow shopping cart racers and demanded change.

There is an interview with a mysteriously named "Number Six" over at the Gothamist. He sounds like a very bright fellow. And over at Comedy Central Inside, Gary Sinse has apologize.
I believe this is "Number Six" reading COBRA's statement. He's handsome, too!
The time for silence has ended. For too long now corporate America has been assimilating our culture, twisting it, exploiting it, ignoring Truth in the favor of titillation. What I speak of is, of course, the noble art of shopping cart racing. And when I say corporate America, I am speaking of CSI:NY (or “CSI: New York,” as most people refer to it).

Tonight's episode of CSI:NY, entitled “Obsession,” is described in CBS's own words as follows:

“A man found dead in the snow with a price tag hanging from inside his stomach leads the CSIs to the annual Idiotarod race where young New Yorkers in creative costumes race decorated shopping carts from Brooklyn to Manhattan as if they were dog sleds.”

Notice the use of the name “Idiotarod.” We, members of the Carts of Brooklyn Racing Association (commonly referred to as COBRA), are the organizers of the 2007 Idiotarod. Let us first deal with the inaccuracies of that description of the event. One, not all racers are “young.” Racers come in all ages. The Idiotarod appeals to the human soul and we all agree that the human soul has no age. Two, more than just New Yorkers come to race. From across the country, or at least the tri-state area, racers come to New York (and spend money here, I will remind you) to experience the Experience. Three, there is no snow. COBRA believes there will never be snow again. And we would like to thank Al Gore for inventing global warming.

But more importantly, COBRA and shopping cart racers the world over, are distraught by the use of the name Idiotarod. COBRA was contacted by the producers of CSI:NY in November. They asked if they could use the name. We expressed a full willingness to work with them on a story. A story that would convey the excitement of the Idiotarod. That would convey the drama, the thrill, the pageantry, the magic that makes the Idiotarod such a special event. But we could not agree to the story presented to us, a story of stealing carts from the homeless... and of murder most foul. But the producers declined, stating that they had to start shooting in a week and there was no time to work with us. They stated they would not use the name.

And we see that they have used it. The irony in the title “Obsession” is not lost on us. This is just yet another example of the pattern of the media giants using the culture of shopping cart racing for their own nefarious gain. For too long we have sat back and watched them portray us as thieves and murders. We have been exploited for too long. We will no longer stand by silently while they continue this derogatory and negative agenda against us. Shopping cart racers are tired of hiding in the shadows. We are tired of being stereotyped. If our children continue to be bombarded by this, I dare say, hate, how can we expect them to grow up, to hold their heads high, and to say to their friends Bobby Joe Filbert and Sally Jane Kemper, “My parents are shopping cart racers, and I want to be one too”? Really, I ask you. What about the children?

I would like to make it clear this is not an attack on CBS. They have many fine programs. Personally, I always enjoyed Murder, She Wrote. I am a also a big fan of The Ghost Whisper. Jennifer Love Hewitt is dreamy.

Thank you.

Rumor is that CBS is replacing "Obsession" with a repeat tonight. They say it is because G. W. Bush is giving a speech about the war in Iraq. But I think we know the Truth. The people have spoken.

See? BS!

There is a rally out side of the New York CBS office's at 1 PM today.

W 52nd bewteen 5th and 6th.

Shopping cart racers will no longer have their noble art degraded by media filth.

The name "Idiotarod" means something. It stands for something. Don't let corportate America assimilate and exploit the culture of minorities.

CSI:NY is a crime.

I need some coffee. Maybe a bagel.

Idiotarod vs. CSI:NY

Apparently someone as started informing the press.
The Gothamist.

CSI:NY & The Idiotarod

So this week's episode of CSI:NY has this description on the CBS website:
"A man found dead in the snow with a price tag inside his stomach leads the CSIs to the annualIdiotarod race where young New Yorkers in creative costumes race decorated shopping carts from Brooklyn to Manhattan as if they were dog sleds."

Humph. I didn't know Idiotarod was in the common domain. (Although if you watch the preview, it appears they are using the name "Idoitrun" in the actual episode.) And why must the media continue to portray shopping cart racers as murders and thieves? For years, we have been bombarded by negative images. How do we expect our children to hold their heads high if this continues?

Let me add the conversation from November that COBRA had with CSI:NY's producers in regard to this. Link to the phone call.

And couldn't have been a Law & Order show? I like Law & Order.


Pretty, organic, sexual, sea creature, distubing... and made from pencils. I do not know who the original artist is, but you can see more of the works here.

Edit: Found the artist. Jennifer Maestre.
