The life before her eyes

Image
I randomly rented the movie: The life Before her eyes, because i saw Uma Thurman on the cover. I didn't know anything about it. It was really good, and had an ending that keeps you thinking. I can't talk about it without giving it away. It's as if, instead of your whole life flashing before your eyes before you die, you imagine what your life WOULD have been like, if you survived, or made a different decision.

In the movie, Uma is an art teacher. In one scene she is talking about a painting by Gohan (or something like that) and she was projecting it on a screen so her students could see it. It showed it for a second and I paused the movie and said "Mom, come check this out!"

We went in my room and the same painting was what I had as my desktop background! I didn't even know who the artist was, or why I had it on my computer, or why i decided to use it as my background a couple days before I saw the movie.

Repo! The Genetic Opera - Zydrate Anatomy

"An epidemic of organ failures devastates the planet. Panic erupts and scientists feverishly make plans for a massive organ harvest. Out of the tragedy, GeneCo, a multi-billion dollar biotech company, emerges. GeneCo provides organ transplantation for a profit. In addition to financing options, GeneCo reserves the right to implement default remedies, including repossession. For those who can't keep up with their organ payments, collection is the responsibility of "organ repo men", skilled assassins contracted by GeneCo, ordered to recover GeneCo's property by any means necessary."

Who's gonna save my soul?

"You are the best. You are the worst. You are average. Your love is a part of you. You try to give it away because you cannot bear its radiance, but you cannot separate it from yourself. To understand your fellow humans, you must understand why you give them your love. You must realize that hate is but a crime-ridden subdivision of love. You must reclaim what you never lost. You must take leave of your sanity, and yet be fully responsible for your actions."
-Gnarls Barkley

New Da Vinci Art

Image
This was found at an auction, and now they think it's a da Vinci. I would say it definitely looks da Vinci-eske. I'll have to look in my collection, but I think i've seen nearly identical drawings. The color is the only thing that doesn't look like anything i've seen from him. But with most of his art, since it's from 500 years ago, they are faded. Maybe this one was preserved better, or someone else colored it in or gave it a freshening.

Emily

"The 3D model of Emily was then animated by Image Metrics, a company that makes computer-generated imagery for Hollywood films and computer games. They filmed Ms O'Brien giving a 90-second performance using computer vision technology, which captured the footage pixel by pixel. "

Chevy, interestingly choose Fergie to help premiere their 2010 Camaro SS. 422 HP. For the first time I would rather drive a Camaro more than a Mustang.



This is the Porsche Panorama, their first 4 door. It has potential but the back part is awkward. I dont like it when the designers try too hard to incorporate their companies design theme into their other cars. They take something that could be really nice and unique, and force a design into it. Thats exactly what's wrong with this car.

This is the new Passat CC, which I think is the best use yet of the 'coupe look' in a four door.

Too Late

I'm holding on your rope,
Got me ten feet off the ground
I'm hearin what you say but I just can't make a sound
You tell me that you need me
Then you go and cut me down, but wait
You tell me that you're sorry
Didn't think I'd turn around, and say...

It's too late to apologize, it's too late
I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late

I'd take another chance, take a fall
Take a shot for you
And I need you like a heart needs a beat
But it's nothin new
I loved you with a fire red-
Now it's turning blue, and you say...
"Sorry" like the angel heaven let me think was you
But I'm afraid...

It's too late to apologize, it's too late
I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late



It's too late to apologize, it's too late
I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late
It's too late to apologize, yeah
I said it's too late to apologize, yeah-
I'm holdin on your rope, got me ten feet off the ground...

After her baby died, she just couldn't let go...

By a knows

So today I went to the Del mar horse races with my babes.

We spiked our diet pepsi with, non-diet rum for the train ride down.

All the seats were full, at first.

My mom made friends with one of the nicest ladies i've ever seen. her name was Ester i think. She kept trying to stand up before her stop, and my mom kept yelling at her "sit back down ester! this isn't your stop, i'll tell you when you can get up!" She only has one son, like my mom and me.

and she would sit down and laugh really loud, she did it about 10 times and laughed harder each time.

She told us a joke.

"There was this lady who went to the hospital for some life threatening disease. She talked to a priest who said. Don't worry, you have many many years before god takes you. I promise you!

So while was in the hospital she decided to have a face-lift and such, to embrace the many many years she had left.

The day she left the hospital she got hit by a buss and died.

When she got to heaven she asked …

Why do I have to do this?

If you have any dealings with the internet, you've come across this. I guess it's supposed to thwart computers, that have been programmed to fill out stuff, and.. uh post blogs on my - blog? It's called CAPT-something. and it's freaking annoying as hell! Everytime I come across these little f*ckers It takes me literally FIVE times to get it right! I'm like... uh j ppp, is that an M??? an L.. no an l looks a lot like a 1, x - i got that one! j, or is that a p? u, ok, C... ok Seriously, is it just me, or does anyone else have to fill these things out 3x's for every correct answer? And I would really like to know what kinda computers, or automated systems are out there that can fill out "forms" that are THAT advanced, and then they can't "See" these letters? Cause I can't see them. and they really annoy me.
There's gotta be a better way

Rebel

"Ok, yeah, alright...
I find it hard to say, that everything is alright
Don't look at me that way, like everything is alright
Cuz my own eyes can see, through all your false pretenses
But what you fail to see, is all the consequences
You think our lives are cheap, and easy to be wasted
As history repeats, so foul you can taste it
And while the people sleep, too comfortable to face it
His life so incomplete, and nothing can replace it
And while the people sleep, too comfortable to face it
Your lives so incomplete, and nothing can replace it
Fret not thyself I say, against these laws of man
Cuz like the Bible says, His blood is on their hands
And what I gotta say, and what I gotta say, is rebel
While today is still today, choose well
And what I gotta say, is rebel, it can't go down this way
Choose well, choose well, choose well...
...choose well, choose well, choose well
And while the people sleep, too comfortable to face it
Your lives are so incomplete, and nothing, and no one, can replac…

Hoax?

So i'm really pissed. I think the big foot thing is a big scam. I just read an article about the guys who claimed to have found the body. They are basically liars and obviously idiots. I mean there has to be maybe, 20 different big foot costumes being made in the world. If that. So if you're going to take a picture of a dead "Big Foot" then you would think you'd be smart enough to NOT use a popular costume... The face is exactly the same as the costume pictured first. Also, look at the fur, it's obviously synthetic fabric. I dont understand what someone gets out of faking something like this. Oh yeah thats right - to scam people out of their money.

It's ok, they are still out there!

Big Foot Friday

I'm so excited! A real big foot?! I had no doubt that big foot is out there somewhere. I mean there have been plenty of Big Foot like creatures in the past. Ape like men, and men like apes. All it takes is for one to survive. If this is really true, I totally want to go and make a big food documentary!


"Two bigfoot hunters claim they have the body of one and plan to release a photo and what they claim is DNA evidence at a news conference in Palo Alto on Friday. The Bigfoot is claimed to have been found in the woods of northern Georgia by Matthew Whitton and Rick Dyer, and the claim is being supported by a Bay Area Bigfoot researcher Tom Biscardi, a multiple local Democratic candidate."


*The creature is seven feet seven inches tall.
*It weighs over five hundred pounds.
*The creature looks like it is part human and part ape-like.
*It is male.
*It has reddish hair and blackish-grey eyes.
*It has two arms and two legs, and five fingers on each hand and
five toes on each foot.

How often do you let other people’s nonsense change your mood? Do you let a bad driver, rude waiter, curt boss, or an insensitive employee ruin your day? Unless you’re the Terminator, you’re probably set back on your heels. However, the mark of your success is how quickly you can refocus on what’s important in your life.

Sixteen years ago I learned this lesson. And I learned it in the back of a New York City taxi cab. Here’s what happened.

I hopped in a taxi, and we took off for Grand Central Station. We were driving in the right lane when all of a sudden, a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, the car skidded, the tires squealed, and at the very last moment our car stopped just one inch from the other car’s back-end.

I couldn’t believe it. But then I couldn’t believe what happened next. The driver of the other car, the guy who almost caused a big accident, whipped hi…

Loris? Or robot?

Adorable Loris


This thing totally looks like a robot, or imaginary cartoon creature. Look at how it looks at things. It moves really really slow.
