Hey guys, I'm really happy with all the support I've gotten so quickly, but honestly I'm finding this kinda tedious and boring, so this will be my last post. Since I'm not into it, you should redirect your attention elsewhere. Thought I'd give a friendly wave!

Happy blogging!

Smithsonian Christmas Exhibit

The Smithsonian opened an interesting Christmas season art exhibit on Oct. 30 which will run through February 13.

The exhibit features images such as an ant-covered Jesus, male brothers kissing, male genitalia, men in chains, and Ellen DeGeneres grabbing her breasts.

According to the plaque at the entrance to the exhibit, "These themes, historic and artistic, come together in 'Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture,' the first major exhibition to examine the influence of gay and lesbian artists in creating modern American portraiture. Hide/Seek' chronicles how, as outsiders, gay and lesbian artists occupied a position that turned to their advantage, making essential contributions to both the art of portraiture and to the creation of modern American culture."

Nothing says Christmas quite like gay and lesbian artists. And brothers kissing.

Now, I'm all for gay/lesbian rights, 100%. But really? This is what they choose as an exhibit for the Christmas season? Pornography? In fact, they fact that it is gay or was created by gay artists has nothing to do with it. I don't want to see eroticism and a naked Ellen DeGeneres at Christmas. What the hell were they thinking?

Al Gore Charges $100,000 per Speech

Hey, he's a busy man. He might as well make a few bucks while preaching upon his life's work, right?

What a dick.

Shameless Counter-Suing

So, a motorist hit a kid who was riding his bike near his house, killing him. The parents sued and won around $15,000 in damages. According to the prosecutors, the driver in question was doing 83 in a 45mph zone AND recklessly passing another car when he hit the young man. In all fairness, $15,000 is pretty conservative - they could have drove him into the ground. In addition, the man is going to prison for 10 years as this is the cherry on top of several drunk driving convictions. You'd think this sad story would end there, right?


The now-prisoner David Weaving is counter-suing the parents of 'contributory negligence' because they allowed their son to ride his bike in the street without a helmet.

What an enormous dick.

This is what really gets me, though:

"The Kenneys say Weaving's license should have been permanently revoked in 1999 under state law because of the multiple convictions. They're seeking permission from the state claims commissioner to sue the Department of Motor Vehicles and its commissioner, Robert Ward.

"The department has acknowledged it made a mistake in not revoking Weaving's license and said it has taken steps to prevent similar problems."

If the government had done its job in the first place, this man wouldn't have been on the road in the first place. And you know what their response is to this fact being point out to them? They acknowledged they made a mistake and have taken steps to prevent similar problems. What a gigantic, steaming load of elephant crap that is. How many times have you heard a government agency say "Our mistake. We've taken steps to correct the issue" ? It's just enough impersonal ambiguity to make me want to smash some heads in at their office. They didn't even have enough time to write a personal apology.

Dicks... dicks everywhere.

Consumer Drive

And in an all new display of mediocrity, a family set up camp in front of a Best Buy on Wednesday, 9 days before Black Friday.

Oh, what a wonderful consumer-based society we have when people are so desperate for electronics deals that they camp in front of a store for over a week. Seriously, what the shit? What about family? What about Thanksgiving? Sure, they're taking shifts, but is it really worth that much to you? Who cares?

I, for one, will never go shopping on Black Friday. I've had the misfortune of working retail on a Black Friday and it is chaos. I don't recommend it.

Councilman Calls Cops on Bake Sale

You won't believe this:

*link broken, my bad* Don't worry, the story is still good:

Two boys decided to set up a baked-goods stand in their local park. Their dream? Save up money for several years buy a restaurant. I can't think of a more wholesome, heart-warming example of young entrepreneurship. The first day, they even made $130, enough to buy a cart and add water and Gatorade to their stand! Great work kids!

Oh, wait. The government has to come and screw it all up now, doesn't it?

A city councilman noticed the two boys and called the cops after realizing they didn't have a permit, sending them home in tears, worrying about their criminal records. It costs $150-350 for every two hours of use for a commercial stand in the park. God forbid two boys try and make some spending money.

Absolutely unbelievable. Yet another great example of people trying to make something of themselves only to be slapped down by a bureaucratic government full of pompous asses.
