Something I Forgot....

I was supposed to put this up on my last blog post and I forgot. I mentioned the story Gracie's Odyssey, but I never really showed anything from it. This is a little advertisement I made. It's just some pics from the story (in color) put to some narrative words and music. I like to use classical music in my movies because it's the kind of music that reaches the soul. Like it or not, you've got to agree the way I put the music in these movies really captures your spirit. You can listen with the sound off, but I don't really recommend it. IMO, the music tells the story.

I made quite a few of these little advertisements. Here's one I am really proud of, for a story by Cathy. It was the first story she ever did for our group, in 1987. I had just met her, we went to school together and I showed her some of the stories I did. She liked them and she showed me one that she did earlier. Well, in June of 1987 we both pooled our talents together and came up with this story about a bushbaby and an otter shrew. At first she wanted to make the story about a bushbaby and a cheetah, but I said I ain't a-drawing no cheetah!! By that time, my interest in panthers of any kind had completely diminished. I liked otters though, but that would have been too big an animal to make friends with a tiny bushbaby, so we took the next best thing, an otter lookalike, the otter shrew. And it is indeed small enough to fit in the story. This one is also already available on our site, it's called Growing Up is Hard to Do. And sure enough, the little otter shrew faces the hardships of growing up alone. It's a hilarious look at how sometimes some things don't always go the way we want them to. But the shrew is made a stronger individual because of these things. He just picks up the broken pieces and says 'life goes on.' Again, you can listen with the sound off, but I don't recommend it.

John Travolta Double Feature

LOL! He's a cool old guy, I like him. I loved him in Grease. Unfortunately Saturday Night Fever was not as good or as funny as Grease. I think they used the same characters. Not sure though. I remember I saw SNF once and I never wanted to see it again. In one scene in the movie, one of the guys killed himself and I remember it literally made my belly churn. It really made me physically ill!! I was just a kid back then, but it really did make me physically ill, just the thought I guess of this one guy killing himself. I guess that is why I never had the desire to really kill myself, even though I've been through some pretty far down moments. The only time I seriously contemplated doing anything harmful was when my Groucho died. But Grease is funny. In all fairness though, Saturday Night Fever does have the better soundtrack. I've been listening to it for many years. I even remember having the album as a child, and having the maddest crush on the Bee Gees. Especially Barry Gibb. Of the three of them, he was the one that looked more like a man. LOL! Kinda hard to explain there, but it is true. I've seen a recent picture of him, this is what he looks like today:

Still not bad!! I love a man holding a guitar!!!! (nothing like someone who is loyal to her childhood fantasies, eh?) Even though this was the guy who used to trip my fancy:

Now, his brother Robin was not too bad looking either. But he was too skinny.

More than anything when I was a kid, I think it was his hair I was more attracted to. LOL! Not really his face, lips or anything. I like guys with a bit of meat on their bones. But you know Robin is still that skinny? Believe me. I used to pretend like me and my sis were at a concert of their's and they were playing on the stage in front of us. Then Anna had the good destiny to actually attend one of their concerts. I was too young to go so I didn't get a chance to. I stayed home with my pa, and my kitty cat that I had at that time. There was one song the BeeGees did, called Tragedy, that is a good song. That is until they come toward the end when you hear what sounds like cannon guns firing off. Anna told me that when she was at the concert, those things that sounded like cannon guns are actually pyrotechnics. Now, I can believe it. But when I was a kid, I'd never even heard of pyrotechnics. Imagine the BeeGees going for those, like some major heavy-metal rockers. INXS never has used pyrotechnics. Not that I've seen, anyway. IMO, the BeeGees should not have used them in that song, it was a bad idea. It kinda ruins the ending for me.

Actually, Travolta himself used to be kinda good-looking too. He's not a bad singer either. I never had a crush on him, per se. I just liked his appearance on Grease and a few other movies. Grease was the funnier of his movies back then, and Saturday Night Fever was more on the dramatic side. That's how I saw it. I haven't seen SNF since I was about 7 years old. It was enough.

Well, on to a subject I know I'll love, Timmy again. The DJ. Unfortunately, I was right all along, the shows are only going to be broadcast in Australia. I thought the show was going to cost $175!! Apparently that was to subscribe to some other radio station for the news about the stations that will be broadcasting this series. But still!!! I won't get to hear it. According to this one person who told me about all this, there will be livestreaming, but no podcasting. And the livestreams are only for Aus. It still SUCKS!!! I was confused for a slight second. I probably would have understood more if I was still on inxs.com and able to read everyone's responses to that. But I am not, and I am not ready to return yet. I still love Tim, but still taking a "break" from INXS. Now, I am still new to computers and gadgets and how stuff works, but I still don't see why someone in Aus cannot record the programs as they come on the radio there and make podcasts of them and post them up on like inxs.com or somewhere. Well Tim, I still love you man. I hope someone can think of some way the rest of the World can hear this! I'd sure love to! I can bet it would be priceless!!!

Well, I'm also taking a break from working on my Metazoic website. I'm back to working on my UMG website. I've been hard at work on a story called Gracie's Odyssey. It is a UMG masterpiece!!! It's kindof a combination of Finding Nemo and Brother Bear, but this story is twice as old as those movies. It was first completed in January of 1998 by one of my best friends, Cairo. In fact, he based the story on my life at that time. hehe! Cairo has retired from our little group, and is now writing poetry and hang-gliding. HA!! He likes that stuff. Now, our group is down to about 3 individuals, not counting my sis Anna, who has also written for us. But Anna doesn't seem to want to make a career of writing. The story is about a fawn, named Davy, born in a zoo, and he is undersized compared to his brother and sister. Gracie is the mother. When Davy's brother and sister are sold, he is left behind with his mom. Gracie develops a special kinship with Dave and does not want to part with him, and he doesn't want to part from her. But one day the zoo keeper slips into their pen in the middle of the night and takes Dave away from his mom and sells him to another zoo far away. Gracie is pissed! And Dave is upset his mom isn't with him anymore and he feels he will never see her again. Well, I cannot give too much of the story away, but that is the jist of how it begins a long conquest for Gracie to try and get her fawn back. The story is based on me. That was a bad time for me, for several obvious reasons. So the story represents me, and Davy represents a small, but important, part of my soul that was lost at that time. It's a long explaination. But it did turn out to be a very good story!!! It will be up on our UMG site very soon.

Operacion Repo

I was watching a marathon of this last night. Man!! I never seen a bigger bunch of roughnecks in my life!! But I guess you've gotta be a roughneck to do the kind of job they do. But this one guy named Matt, oh man!! He's the roughest roughneck of all of them. He manhandles everyone, man, woman, short, tall, fat, skinny, he doesn't care, he roughs them all up!! Man! I've seen gangsters who were not as quick-tempered as this guy! He is built like a bear with the temper of one of those honey badgers.

These people repossess cars and other vehicles from those who do not keep up the payments. They do come up against some pretty rough characters themselves. I'll never forget that woman in a pizza parlor who threw her whole pizza on this one woman Sonya's head. Sonya always seems to go to these repossessions like she's going to a ball. She always wears this big, huge, lacy dress, but she's got an attitude like I've never seen before. She kinda reminds me of a woman I lived with for 2 weeks once. That's a different story though but it was a live-in babysitter position and the mom was a roughneck too. And a hard-rocker. I had to quit that job when my pa was pestering me because she was paying me little more than room and board. At least I got a new sofa out of the deal! But anyway, she is who Sonya reminds me of.

Anyway, I've been rather lucky I've never had to have my car repossessed, I always pay for them in full. That way I know there will never be any threat of repossessions. I may not have the prettiest and flashiest cars on the road, but at least they are all mine from the get-go. I've never had a car repossessed and I never will. :) Well, I'm not like most of these other people who were trying to stop these people, hitting them over the head with pizzas and stuff. LOL! I'm more the type that would say "Go ahead and take the car! It's more trouble than it's worth!" Out here, I can always catch the bus. Not a big problem. But anyway, if you like watching roughnecks repossessing the cars of idiots, I recommend this show. It's funny as heck!! Don't get Matt angry though!

Dian Fossey, the Sequel

Today is the day I celebrate one of the greatest people in the World's history. Dian Fossey was killed in her home on this day in 1985. She would have been about 76 years old now. I usually prefer to celebrate the person's life on the day they die as opposed to the day they were born, particularly someone like Dian Fossey. She was a remarkable woman! A real pioneer. Like me, she prefered animals to people. Jane Goodall is a great person too, but she is not as great as Dian Fossey was. Until Fossey took those first steps to make close contact with the gorillas, Goodall would never have even thought of interacting with the chimps, which she didn't do until long after she began studying them. Fossey, like me, enjoys more contact with animals. Also like me, animals always took to Fossey! She has made close contact even with cape water buffalo, something I wouldn't have the guts to do voluntarily. But she was never charged at by the buffalo. They just looked at her with great indifference. In short terms, Dian Fossey was COOL!! She knew how to "talk" to animals. Well, she was almost supernatural in her ability to make even wild animals feel at ease around her. This is why people like Dian Fossey, who are no longer with us, I prefer to celebrate their lives on the date they passed. Because then I feel we celebrate all their accomplishments, which is really something to celebrate. People like Tim Farriss, I still celebrate his birthday because he is still here and I love him a lot as a bandmember of INXS!! He has had some great accomplishments too, and I reflect back on those. If it wasn't for him, there never would have been INXS. That would have been a very intolerable existance for me!! INXS has always been counted as one of the all-time best live rock n roll bands, I can't even think of life anymore without my memories of the concerts I've been to, and the times I have met and even been in the same room with Tim Farriss and the rest of the guys from the band.

Anyway, in her lifetime, Fossey even published a best-selling book, "Gorillas in the Mist", I have read the book and enjoyed it. Fossey's own comments on the book though were that there was too much "me-itis" in the book. That's what she called it when one thought too much of one's self. But the World thought it was a great book. I loved it. So there is actually a lot to celebrate in Fossey's life, she's always been my hero, for a long time she was, and still is. I still look up to her in a lot of ways for a lot of things. I've even looked up to her back when I was breeding chihuahuas, I did what I could to defend the breed as aggressively sometimes as Dian Fossey defended the gorillas. Though back in those days, I still liked people, so I was a little more diplomatic in my approach. Today is the day I give my donation to the Gorilla Fund. I've given a lot to charity this year, I gave a lot of donations to the thrift store out here, it's a non-profit thrift store whose money all goes to help those in need in this town. I gave $20 to the Salvatian Army red bucket this year, and now this. I'm buying myself a great deal of good karma (luck, prayers, you name it) I can use it next year. Have a lot of plans for next year.

Here is another choice tidbit, 2009 is officially the Year of the Gorilla, well, scientists are making it that way according to this article: http://dsc.discovery.com/news/2008/12/01/year-of-gorilla.html. The mountain gorillas have become something of an icon for endangered animals. Today there are about 700 individuals in the wild. That's not a bad number considering at one point when Fossey was studying them, there were as few as less than 400 wild individuals. That's quite a jump! That makes mountain gorillas one of the most endangered animals in the World. The only thing rarer that I can put my finger on (according to that same article) is the Asian cheetah. But I don't give a shit about cheetahs, ugly bastards!!!! So I concentrate on saving the mountain gorillas. Dian Fossey began the gorilla fund after the slaying of her most favorite gorilla she called Digit, and in fact, the fund used to be called "the Digit Fund". Now, it is called the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund. In all honesty, I don't think Dian Fossey would approve of that!! She would have more likely argued that the fund was founded for Digit, not her. But not much we can do about it. But knowing Dian Fossey as well as I do, if she complained to her publisher about putting too much of herself in her own book, she sure as Hell would have griped about naming this gorilla fund after herself and taking Digit's name off it. No way she'd have stood for that! But she isn't here to argue so I guess whoever it was that changed the name of the fund thought what they were doing was right. Well, Fossey can sit in Heaven and be happy at least the gorilla population is increasing. Slowly! Gorillas were never meant to be very common, they are slow reproducers. Even more so than we are. Because they don't have sex just for the fun of it. They don't care about having huge families like a lot of people do. They think about what the long-term consequences are on thier environment due to their population and people usually do not. Believe it or not, animals are programmed by nature to only reproduce when necessary. Humans are not. Humans just think about "Oh I have 3 kids, but I don't care about the long-term affects! I just want to have MORE kids!!" Animals are not like that. They are programmed that when food is scarce, or their environment may be going through some kind of particular shortage, or when there is too many of their species and not enough natural population control, they stop reproducing. Unfortunately human interferrence doesn't count because people just chop down trees and build houses and farms and kill off natural predators without thinking what it's going to do to the animals. Or they kill animals for fun (also known as poaching). So animals that are slow to reproduce, like mountain gorillas, wind up suffering drastic declines in their population. And it's not like mountain gorillas can be kept in zoos either. The gorillas we see in zoos are always of the lowland variety. Animals that have adapted to the mountain climates very often are difficult to keep in captivity because they require special adaptations to live in their harsh environment. These adaptations are not compatable with the small habitats they provide in zoos. I'm surprised snow leopards can be kept in zoos. But snow leopards are relatively young as a species. They evolved off of regular Indian leopards no more than about 100,000 years ago, maybe less. But as far as gorillas go, I'm afraid they still have a long way to go. But Dian Fossey would be enjoying this progress. The gorillas would be saying to her "We're doing the best we can with what little resources we have left!"

What I Want For Christmas

Hehe! Well another Christmas has come and past, next in line is New Years! I got some cool gifts this year. Katrina gave me a little graphic MP3 player. It plays not only MP3s, but also movies and stores pics. I put all the Timmy pics from my computer onto this little gadget, now I can take them anywhere with me. I already have an MP3 player, but this one is better really. My older one doesn't have a screen, and I cannot view pics. This one Katrina gave me also plays WMP files, and MP4's. Eva gave the both of us a little mini digital camcorder. I love it! I can edit our home movies on my computer and even apply music to our videos. I gave Anna a programmable coffee machine. Anna gave me a projector, so I can put my Timmy pics on it and draw them on a piece of paper I tape onto the wall and make them huge!! hehe! I could use a nice poster of just Timmy, and now I can draw it myself! I always have trouble drawing Timmy. He has such a complex expression on his face that it makes it impossible to duplicate. Believe me, I tried. I'm not that fricken good yet!!! Well, when the time comes I want to take the gift cards I got and get myself a portable DVD player that also plays VCDs. An electronic Christmas!! I can hardly wait!! I'm going to wait until my sis Anna goes back to school after New Years, I want to just laze around the house a little longer. I don't want to clutter my free time by going out. hehe! Yeah, I'm a lazy-ass!! Don't ya just HATE it?! LOL!! I'm also going out to get me some of those ex-pens for my dogs. Someone told me about them on here and I think it'd be the best investment I can put in my little family here. I just hope the high winds here don't blow them away. I'd like to find some that are easily collapsable.

So where is my phone and my HDTV? LOL! I'm just kidding! I have a little left-over egg nog in me I need to get out. Don't worry, it was non-alcoholic. Just super sweet. I spent most of yesterday cooking and baking. We had friends over and stripped the turkey bare. Poor old bird!! LOL! Katrina could have come with Eva, but they were snowed in. That's why I didn't even try to make it over there. Katrina hasn't even been at work in days. We had a brushing of snow here Christmas morning, but it melted quickly. We still have a bit left over from the last arctic blast we had, but it's not even snow anymore. It's more like slush.

Dian Fossey

Every year at this time, one person comes to mind more than any other, besides family. It's Dian Fossey. I've been an admirer of her's for a long time! I mean LONG!! Ever since "Gorillas in the Mist" came out in the theaters. I was just a teenager then, but she was fascinating!! Funny I never even thought about mountain gorillas until I saw that movie. Back then, I was more into other types of animals, like lemurs and mongooses. Gorillas never even crossed my mind. The gorillas are sweet, but Dian Fossey really fascinates me. She and I have a lot in common. She grew up not liking people either, for the same reason as me. She had too many bad experiences with people to like them. If only she'd been here during the internet age, I can imagine what she'd think of people now. Too many people on the internet shit-talk each other.

Anyway, Dian Fossey has always been such a big inspiration in my life, one has to admire a woman who died fighting for what she believed in. Sometimes I think that is how I am going to end up. One of the biggest misconceptions though is that she died defending the gorillas, and it has recently been discovered that that is not completely true. Though it was a part of why she was targeted for assassination, the real reason most people wanted her dead was because she was trying to stop the gold trade in the Virungas. It was learned that a member of the Rwandan government was actually the guy who killed her, he went to her house to retrieve gold that Dian confiscated from some smugglers. Gold to the Rwandans is like narcotics are to us. It's worth so much to them that they actually kill for it. But apparently it's illegal there to smuggle, so Dian tried to stop the smuggling of gold by having the smugglers arrested and confiscating the gold herself. The man who killed her (his name escapes me at the moment, but it was an African name) admitted it was not his original intent to kill her when he broke into her house, he actually went there unarmed, thinking she was not home. He actually used a woodcutter's knife that was hanging on Dian's wall as a decoration. But still, even if the sole purpose for her demise was not due to the gorillas, not all of it anyway, she did die fighting for what she believed in, and that is admirable.

This is why on the anniversary of her death each year I give to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, or DFGF. No other person has influenced me so much either directly or indirectly, outside the family. Family always comes first. But I've known about Dian Fossey and studied her so extensively for so long she almost feels like family to me! LOL! Or at least an old friend. I never actually met her though, she didn't like coming to the west coast. She had such a deep, dark resentment for her ma that she preferred to stay away from this part of the country. Her ma married a man when Dian was about 5 years old that was the kind of person that believed children should be completely separate from adults. A total jerk in other words. So, she and her ma never really bonded. But Dian should not have been too upset, she made something of her life. And to the gorillas, she is the ultimate hero!! She deserves to be remembered in a special way. She was a special person. I celebrate her life every year, it's become as much a part of this holiday season to me as Christmas and New Years are.

Speaking of Christmas and it's traditions, look at one of the uses being discovered for that leftover misteltoe! It can be used to prolong the lives of cancer patients. I read about it in this article: http://dsc.discovery.com/news/2008/12/24/mistletoe-cancer.html. And eat as many of those candy canes as you can! It's great for regulating your system and fighting germs: http://dsc.discovery.com/news/2008/12/24/candy-canes-germs.html.

Michael Jackson Touring???

Well, after I read in The Star Celeb how there have been allegations regarding Michael Jackson's life coming to an end (completely false) I heard about him planning another World tour. The first thing that came into my mind, ignoring the article about people saying he was dying, was "Michael Jackson is touring?????" I always thought his touring days were over. Well, all I know is I am not going to any of his shows. Call me what you want but you cannot pay me to attend an MJ concert!!! If there is one thing wacko Jacko is famous for (among thousands of other things) is cancelling concerts just for funsies. It's like he wants the money, but doesn't really want to do the work. This man doesn't even have half the mannerisms INXS does!!

I heard once Janet's boobs flopped out of her outfit on stage while she was doing a dance on a stage in Chicago. I think it was Chicago!! Or was it Washington DC? It was one of those unlucky towns anyway. Anyway, I would kinda like to know if Michael J's nose will also fall off his face? If there is still the threat of that happening, he'd better think about deploying a welder to weld that thing onto his face! Or Michael himself can drill in some screws to keep it on. He can get the screws from the loose ones in his head! Seriously though, I do feel sorry for the man. He fucked up his face and now he's fucked up his life. This was a total surprise that he is going on another tour. GOD help the man!!

Well, I am glad to see The Star Celeb has more guest writers. I've done a few articles for them. I actually feel honored to write for these people. I get a lot of hot news about celebs through E! news on my homepage. And I have a few strings I can pull myself, hehe! Being a writer and touring the country, you meet a lot of people, believe me!! I'm even slowly getting over my shyness. I mean S-L-O-W-L-Y!!!! My supervisor is also here in town and we have been discussing the plans for the company for next year. eek!! In a way I am kinda excited, but in another way I am also scared. I'll be touring to places I've never been before. Some places scare the shit out of me! Like NYC. I've never been there, and I'm going to have to go. Shoot!! I've heard some nightmarish things about the place!!! I know someone who lives there and she tells me that there are people there who will rip your head off for looking cross-eyed at them!! It's totally fucking scary!!! Portland scares me too. Of all the places in Portland that is bad, Hillsboro is the worst!! The people there are ritzy and upper-crust. Any out-of-towners there get treated like they are slime on the sidewalk by the locals. I keep telling Trisha I don't want to go to Portland!! I beg her don't send me there!!! I was so glad when my ma moved from Salem to Olympia, I hated even going through Portland briefly on my way there. That is how much I hate Portland!! And it's not the town it's self I hate, it's the people! They make visiting there more of a chore than a pleasure trip.

Well, I really couldn't care less if MJ is touring, I just want to see INXS tour again. I'm secretly hoping (well, not so secret anymore, lol) that INXS and I will tour the country at the same time. Then I can see every show they put on. I can work by day, have fun and play at the concerts at night. hehe! And I don't mean play any instruments either!!! hehe! I mean, play by looking into Timmy's face and admiring his outer beauty.

Something Else I Learned

I got this today on my Homepage:

"It is a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people do not want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them. - P. G. Wodehouse"

That's something I never thought of! And I thought I knew all about human nature. I can't think of too many people who don't want apologies, and only very few who take a mean advantage of them. Well, relatively few. I always thought people who don't apologize are the type who don't give a shit who they hurt, or how. What is a person supposed to do to make things right after they did something wrong? Most people I know settle well for an old-fashioned apology. I don't know, maybe it's just me. I always thought if I was wrong that it was good manners to give an apology. That's how I was brought up. I never take a mean advantage. In fact, if someone has done me wrong, and they think enough of me to apologize, I completely wipe the slate clean. All things done before are forgotten and forgiven. However I only allow myself to forgive once, and no more. I won't allow someone to go on and on shitting on me after I've forgiven them once. I am not the woman of a thousand chances!

If I am proven wrong, I don't mind giving apologies, I don't care who it is to. Well, most of the time anyway. And there is one rule of thumb, I must be PROVEN wrong.

Well anyway, today was quite a day. There is a blizzard here in Ocean Shores. We have to be careful with the doggies. They're so teeny, I do worry about them. Just like people, they can get lost in this kind of weather too. It looks like the Alaskan tundra out there!! My sis Anna had to wear 3 layers of clothing just to go out about 25 feet to get the mail! It took her 2 minutes to go to the mailbox. The wind was blowing something fierce, and powdery snow everywhere!! Tomorrow is supposed to be like this too. In fact, last time I looked, it's supposed to be like this all week. That's a shame, cuz ma is supposed to come up here on Tuesday. I hate the powdery snow!! That stuff is a bear to melt!!! It lasts a lot longer than wet snow. Well, one good thing is that we may have a white Christmas! Something I have never had in my lifetime.

A Bit of Christmas Humor

My ma e-mailed these to me, and I thought I would add a bit of humor to this blog. Been boring lately. I've been too busy to post much, and I don't see it letting up before New Years. So I decided to post this, it's enough humor to last the rest of this month.

Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries
are going dead?

Why do banks charge a fee on 'insufficient funds' when they know there
is not enough money?

Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when
you say the paint is wet?

Why do they use sterilized needles for death by lethal injection?

Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?

Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you
throw a revolver at him?

Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

Whose idea was it to put an 'S' in the word 'lisp'?

If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?

Why is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles
are always white?

Is there ever a day that mattresses are not on sale?

Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that
something new to eat will have materialized?

Why do people keep running over a string a dozen times with their
vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it
down to give the vacuum one more chance?

Why is it that no plastic bag will open from the end on your first try?

How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures?

Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that's falling
off the table you always manage to knock something else over?

In winter why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer
when we complained about the heat?

How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?

Eating Tips for the Holidays

1. Avoid carrot sticks. Anyone who puts carrots on a holiday buffet table knows nothing of the Christmas spirit.
In fact, if you see carrots, leave immediately. Go next door, where they're serving rum balls.

2. Drink as much eggnog as you can. And quickly. It's rare.. You cannot find it any other time of year but now.
So drink up! Who cares that it has 10,000 calories in every sip? It's not as if you're going to turn into an eggnog-alcoholic or something. It's a treat. Enjoy it.
Have one for me. Have two. It's later than you think.
It's Christmas!

3. If something comes with gravy, use it. That's the whole point of gravy. Gravy does not stand alone. Pour it on. Make a volcano out of your mashed potatoes. Fill it with gravy. Eat the volcano. Repeat.

4. As for mashed potatoes, always ask if they're made with skim milk or whole milk. If it's skim, pass. Why bother? It's like buying a sports car with an automatic transmission.

5. Do not have a snack before going to a party in an effort to control your eating. The whole point of going to a Christmas party is to eat other people's food for free.
Lots of it. Hello?

6. Under no circumstances should you exercise between now and New Year's. You can do that in January when you have nothing else to do. This is the time for long naps, which you will need after circling the buffet table while carrying a 10-pound plate of food and that vat of eggnog.

7. If you come across something really good at a buffet table, like frosted Christmas cookies in the shape and size of Santa, position yourself near them and don't budge.
Have as many as you can before becoming the center of attention. They're like a beautiful pair of shoes. If you leave them behind, you're never going to see them again.

8. Same for pies. Apple,Pumpkin, Mincemeat. Have a slice of each. Or if you don't like mincemeat, have two apples and one pumpkin. Always have three. When else do you get to have more than one dessert? LaborDay?

9. Did someone mention fruitcake? Granted, it's loaded with the mandatory celebratory calories, but avoid it at all cost. I mean, have some standards.

10. One final tip: If you don't feel terrible when you leave the party or get up from the table, you haven't been paying attention. Re-read tips; start over, but hurry, January is just around the corner. Remember this motto to live by:

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!!!"

Hope you enjoy a MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Tim Farriss Turning DJ?

That's what it seems like, Timmy is going to take part in a radio program in Australia. It's something he says he enjoys. My stepfather is also an experienced DJ, and used to have his own radio talk show on a country music station. He is even good friends with people like The Judds, Dolly Parton and Kenny Rodgers. Tim has a lot of famous friends too, so I would sure love to hear his talk show. He will be discussing other rock groups, as stated in the article. His program will be called "25 years in 25 days" and will broadcast throughout Australia. If ever there was a better time to move to Australia, it's now. I sure would LOVE to hear his program. He will become my second most favorite DJ on the planet!! Next only to my stepfather. Even though he was a country music DJ, and I'm not a fan of country music, family must come first! Sorry Tim! But Tim is still my most favorite guitarist, and most favorite band member of INXS. I sure do wish I could hear his talk show! I'd love to hear him roast other bands!! hehe! Maybe give him a spot on here. LOL!! Well!! A girl can dream, can't she?! He is so funny on stage, and in interviews, in the same context I can imagine this talk show of his would be absolutely priceless!!! You go Timmy!!! I'm sure you will be the very best radio talk show host Australia has ever known!!! :)

Anyway, here is the article passed around by one of my MySpace buds:

"In a first for Australian radio, INXS guitarist Tim Farriss has signed with Grant Broadcasters to present a series of shows from January 1, 2009.

The first project includes "25 Years in 25 Days", a musical retrospective of the hitmakers and headlines of the past 25 Years.

In commenting on the show for the New Year, Farriss says "this is a great chance to be back on radio again but this time instead of playing the music, I'll be talking about it. It's a great opportunity to doing something I really enjoy - talking about the music and the times that have been a great part of my life. I'll be throwing in a few stories here and there that not many people have heard before.

So make sure you tune in!" Rogerson added "this has been one of the most exciting projects we've worked on for behalf Grant Broadcasters. Having Tim on air across Australia from Hobart, to Darwin, to Wollongong and all points in between is a major coup for the group, and I'm so fortunate for having been part of it.

The series of one hour shows has been written and directed by David Rogerson of Strategic Media Solutions in collaboration with Tim Farriss.

Production is by Sydney digital media producers Twenty5eight."

I hate making New Year's Resolutions. I find I can never stick to them. I stopped promising I was going to lose weight last year. LOL! So that is not one of my resolutions anymore. But this has been quite a year. I found out so many things I either didn't know before or just never thought of.

I learned that The History Channel changes their programming too often!! I've lost 2 programs that I absolutely adored watching! Evolution and Jurassic Fight Club. I was so upset when I didn't see those programs come on anymore, they taught me a lot!! More about that next!

I learned that my predictions for the future of evolution are not as scientifically inaccurate as most people think. That's why I so enjoyed watching those programs on the History Channel, I heard about some dinosaurs I hadn't heard of before and discovered that a lot of the ideas I had about mammal evolution coincided nicely with the emergence of the wide variety of dinosaurs there was. For example, the parallel evolution between Gastonia and my own prediction of the future armadillo Grammoclavia. Both have sharp armor plates that protrude out their sides that can literally "slice open" a predator. And when I thought up Grammoclavia in 1995, I'd never even heard of Gastonia, the dinosaur. And I sure didn't know it too had armor plates that could do that.

I learned that if you snore in Yellowstone, everyone and his brother can hear you. That was the problem my sis Anna had, and one of the reasons she had to resign. I kinda wonder if they will allow her to come back? They did like her work there.

I learned that I was right about DonnaG and her supporters all along. I kinda suspected it first after Vicki's unwarranted attack on me early in 2006, then also when I signed on to the Hardstar - INXS forum a little bit later on. Then when I saw Donna threaten 2 other fans (and LORD knows how many more in between them), and heard their stories about weird and scary encounters with DonnaG, I knew then, for sure, my suspicions were correct.

I learned that the dirty dozen mob will never change, they are too predictable!! But then I think I've known about that all along. It would not surprise me in the slightest if they were the ones who steered the Bible-thumpers to this blog! LOL! Oh well! At least it gave this blog a bit more activity, more than it's ever had before.

I learned that not all people who profess to be Christians are good people. I used to think if I could ever count on anyone to be level-minded it'd be people who are of the Christian faith. But I was wrong. Some of those people who came in here, well, let's just say from the look of the show most of them put on here, I wouldn't trust them with my back turned. But I am glad at least not all of them were bigots.

I learned that yes it does snow here in Ocean Shores. Don't ever let anyone tell you different!! And it gets COLD!!!!

I learned that maybe having cable phone out here wasn't such a hot idea after all.

I learned that this whole "tough-act" the delusional fans forum people put on in their forum was nothing more than just an act.

I learned that being myself gets me nowhere on the internet. I'm just far too complex of a person, it confuses all but the most understanding and knowledgeable people.

I learned it is true that when we do criticize others we are only pointing 3 fingers back at ourselves.

I learned that it is much better to have my own mind and my own point of view and be laughed at than to go with the normal flow and try to fit-in where I knew all along I couldn't. Meaning I would rather be myself and get laughed at than to try and be what I am not and be miserable. I've actually learned to exploit being laughed at. I've learned to use it to my advantage. It makes for interesting, and funny, stories in the future.

Oh yes, and one more thing.... I learned that music isn't music anymore!! Now, all you ever hear anymore is rap and R&B. It SUCKS!!!! Nothing that you can really boogie to anymore!!

Well, those are the things I learned this year. Much of it I've known before, but I learned it is confirmed! hehe!

Enjoy The Gas Prices While You Can

I usually don't post twice in one day, but this is an emergency alert! We have been experiencing gas prices getting lower and lower. I've enjoyed that! But this one company, GasBuddy, is warning that the lower prices could mean an end to the drop in prices once the tourist season begins. That SUCKS!!!! Better fill up those cars and keep them filled. Me, I have a job to do this summer. I have to make a trip down south for a while, but once we come back, we are going to take it easy for the most part. I'm not really looking foreward to it because I hate California!!! But this is a business trip. I want Trisha to come with us and she said she might, which is good, she knows more about how to do this shit than I do!! Anyway, this is the article I bumped into.


Uh-oh: Gas prices on the rise
After eighty-six consecutive daily declines, the average price of gas nationwide has now increased for the past two days. Have gas prices bottomed?

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Gas prices rose for the second consecutive day following eighty-six consecutive declines.

The motorist group AAA reported Sunday that the national average price for a gallon of gas rose to $1.663 a gallon from $1.66 the previous day. The reports are based on a daily survey of credit card swipes conducted for AAA. The average price of gas was $1.656, according to AAA's Friday report.

During the nearly three months that gas prices were falling, prices decreased by $2.199 or 57 percent. The current national average is now $2.451 below or 59.6 percent off the record high price of $4.114 that AAA reported on July 17, 2008.

Two states still have average regular unleaded gas prices of $2 and higher. The highest gas prices are in Alaska, at $2.689 a gallon. The remaining 48 states and the District of Columbia have regular unleaded gas prices below $2. The cheapest gas prices are in Missouri, at $1.477 a gallon.

On Friday, Jason Toews, co-founder of GasBuddy in Minneapolis, warned that gas prices may be bottoming out.

Lower gas prices are starting to spur demand in many areas, which could mean gas prices will pop back up again when the spring and summer driving season hits next year, according to Toews.

"Enjoy the gas prices while they're here," he said.

Since July, the price of gasoline has fallen along with the price of crude oil, gas's main ingredient. Crude has fallen more than $100 a barrel since July as investors worried that the U.S. economy was consuming less fuel.

However the decline in the price of crude may be setting us up for a gas price "super spike" in two to four years, said Toews.

"A lot of oil fields are not economical at these lower prices," he said.

As crude prices have fallen, oil companies have cut back on exploration, and shut down production at expensive operations like the oil sands in Western Canada.

"Once demand comes back, it will make supply even more tight," said Toews.

And the greater the current recession is, the greater price spike we may see in the future, since the lower oil prices are, the more oil companies cut back, he added.

Diesel: The price of diesel fuel, which is used in most trucks and commercial vehicles, continued to slide, however.

The average price of diesel dropped to $2.552 a gallon, according to AAA's Sunday survey, from a nationwide average of $2.561 the previous day.

Diesel prices have fallen more than $2 a gallon since hitting a record high of $4.845 on July 17.
Ethanol: The price of E85, an 85% ethanol blend made primarily from corn, also fell slightly, to $1.521 a gallon in Sunday's survey from $1.527 a day earlier, according to AAA.

E85 can be used in place of regular gas in specially configured "flex-fuel" vehicles, but it is not readily available in some states.

The AAA figures are state-wide averages based on credit card swipes at up to 100,000 service stations across the nation. Individual drivers may see lower fuel prices in different areas of each state.

CNNMoney.com's Kenneth Musante contributed to this story.

So what about Obama's promise to help the economy? Do they think that promise holds any slack? I hope it wasn't a trick Obama used to get his ass into the White House. I would like to be wrong about Obama, now more than anything. But I guess we shall see.

This is for the Christians that are now visiting and commenting on this site. I want to hear from all of them. I've been needing to ask someone these questions who are hardcore creationists, and these people seem perfect prospects for this. I'd be interested in reading what their answers are.

Yes I am a strict believer in evolution. I always believed GOD got the first step going in evolution, then adaptation and climate took over from there.

If the World is only 10,000 years old, how do you explain the slow migration of continental drift? Since it is proven that the continents move about a centimeter per year, if the World is only 10,000 years old, India would be at the middle of the Indian Ocean, and Australia would be no more than a few miles from Antarctica.

If large mammals were around at the same time as the dinosaurs, why are there no large mammal bones buried in the same rock as the dinosaur bones? Dinosaurs, I've said it over and over again, are the greatest contradictors of the Bible there is. If you go to Dinosaur National Monument, you won't see any mammal bones buried in the fossilized river banks that took the dinosaurs there down. If mammals were around at that time (even humans) I would think there would be at least some evidence there. But there is none.

If mammals and dinosaurs were around at the same time, why are there numerous fossil bones of large mammals in the La Brea Tar Pits and absolutely no dinosaur bones? Same explaination as the last paragraph, only in reverse.

The Bible mentions in the first chapter that humans and animals were not meant to eat meat, that the lion will again lay down with the lamb. If that is true, how come were there meat-eating dinosaurs? We know the dinosaurs existed, we know they had ecological niches that are today filled by mammals. There is evidence that there were some meat eaters and some plant eaters. So if nothing was meant to eat meat in the beginning, how come there were dinosaurs that ate meat, and the Bible says no animals ate another until after we ate the forbidden fruit?

Howcome there are no mentions of dinosaurs anywhere in the Bible? All kinds of other animals that are deemed as "great" are mentioned in the Bible. One would think there would be at least one or two paragraphs about some kind of dinosaur. But there is none. Believe me, I looked!! Not one word of any humans walking alongside dinosaurs.

If dinosaurs and humans were around at the same time, howcome ancient cave walls have no depictions of dinosaurs? In the caveman days, the men used to paint their caves with pictures of animals and people within their region. Not one single cave wall anywhere shows a picture of a dinosaur. It's all mammals, and mammals that we know today, and some from 10,000 years ago. People back then would not have known about dinosaurs unless they had actually seen a live one. If the Bible is right, why no dinosaurs in these 10,000 year old cave paintings?

I believe there was a great flood, but I don't believe any dinosaurs were caught up in it. But if anyone can prove all this beyond a shadow of a doubt, I will gladly drop my beliefs in evolution. But I warn anyone attempting to answer these, it's going to take a LOT of convincing!! And saying "If you don't believe in GOD then you just don't like HIM" or anything of the like is NOT going to convince me. Nothing less than clear-cut explainations will make me believe otherwise.

I didn't always believe in evolution. Believe it or not, I used to shun the idea of evolution. I had friends who did believe, but I just let them have their opinions, while I kept mine. Then in 1992, I saw a documentary about dinosaurs and it gave such good, honest and believable answers about the theory of evolution that I changed my position at that point. I find evolution so much more believable than the theory of creation, that says everything that ever lived was around at the same time. I would think mammals would have been snuffed out immediately by dinosaurs taking over the ecosystem, as they were larger, most likely more ferocious, and stronger. A 30-foot tall hadrosaur would have had a greater advantage over a mammoth, and neither of these animals are buried in the same rocks as each other.

So far though, most of these people have nothing but negative attitudes. Not all of them seem negative, there have been some nice ones visiting here, and I do appreciate that. This one who signs his posts "Pastor Ray" seems nice. But the rest of them, they need serious help IMO. Oh, here I go again looking at both sides of the coin! Are there any "Mr. Cutthroats" out there? LOL! Personal joke there. The rest of these people are just simply ANNOYING!!!!!!!!! But then like my sis Anna says, that's what Bible-thumpers are good at. I decided to let them have their fun for a few days, then when they start to get too boring, or too annoying, I'll stop accepting their comments. So far, I have been accused of "lashing out" at Christians, hating Jesus, hating GOD, not reading the bible, talking behind their backs, slander, I was told I am going to Hell (LOL!), etc. Excuse me, this is a roasting blog, and I was roasting landoverbaptist.org. And it is my blog. I looked at their forum, and they are there talking about me behind my back. So fair is fair is fair. But I am not complaining. It's their forum, and I have nothing to do with them! Besides, I was commenting on an article there. It isn't my fault they don't allow comments to be printed in their articles section, and up until now, I didn't even know they had a forum. So that is why I posted here and not there. And the things they say on that forum!! GEESH!! It's MUCH worse than anything I've ever written in this blog!! I never visited their forum until just now, just this minute, and I was SHOCKED!! One thing is for certain, I was not wrong about them here. The only vibes I got out of them there was negativity, hostility, childish behavior, political incorrectness, just to name a few glitches.

One gentleman (and I use the term loosely) calling himself Ahimaaz said to me "have a respectful and civil discussion of our deeply-held religious beliefs, why don't you stop by our forums at landoverbaptist.net and ask us, rather than slinking around behind our backs criticizing us for our religious beliefs." Well, I can say I did. But if you're looking for me to post, forget it!! I was involved in a cult like yours before and I don't ever want to go to another one again!!! I usually like people who are a little bit crazy, but you people are too crazy even for me!! Besides, ask yourself, are you really ready to crawl into a cage with a grizzly bear? Apparently you all have banned some people for not seeing your way and I'm gonna tell you in case you have not noticed it yet by this blog, I am NOT the "follow-the-leader" type!!! If I don't like your beliefs, trust me, you're going to KNOW it!!! I'm not afraid of getting banned, and I am not afraid of saying what is on my mind!! And unlike you all, I don't have to use name-calling to get my point across. Though lately I've noticed the diplomatic approach gets me nowhere!! And no, I am not a homosexual, no I am not a terrorist, and no I do not do drugs or alcohol!!!

No, I think I'll stick around my blogs. If they want to talk to me, they can do so here. But I am staying where the Timmy is!!!!

To those of us who love him, as I do, I love this video! Check out Timmy's posing! I laugh every time I see this!!

Oprah Getting Fatter?

Just when I think things got better for Oprah, things get worse. The woman is packing on the pounds again! I don't usually talk about Oprah, as she is usually the last thing on my mind. But according to this article on E! News, she is gaining weight. Want to turn to Dexa-fat for help? I recommend not. As a fat-ass myself, I cannot specify enough about how much this product does NOT work!! I've tried it several times. It promises to reduce your appetite and that is BULLSHIT!! It never reduced my appetite! In fact, it made it worse. There was one solution that would have worked if it was still around, inject your body with tapeworms!! You're guaranteed to lose weight, but the problem is, after you lose the weight, you have to go through the trouble of getting rid of the tapeworms. And believe me, they are NOT easy to get rid of!! I used to rescue feral cats, I know how difficult they are to get rid of!! This was a popular weight-loss method back in the 1920s. Tapeworms however, tend to also drain your body of vital nutrients and vitamins, so it was not a very good idea!

Well, poor Oprah! I must say I feel sorry for her. This is why I stay away from diet gimmicks. It's better to stay the fat-ass I am than to try and "re-train" myself to follow a diet! Diets make you gain weight, not lose it. I take my walks daily, so I know I will at least be a healthy fat person. But try to lose weight? Well, if it happens, OK. If it doesn't, I can live with it. And fat-names don't bother me anymore. I guess Oprah's high-priced chef will be returning to work next Monday after probably being out of work for several years. But then again, I don't know. Maybe it's just holiday fat for Oprah? But if the laws of medicine is anything to go on, if her highest point was 237 in 1990, Oprah should now reach a whopping 260 pounds!! Maybe even 300 before she figures out how to get her weight back down again. She'd better rush! At 54, her time is running out! The older you get the harder it is to lose. The only thing you will really lose is your mind trying to lose that weight only to find out you can't!!

Well, if she can't, she can always join me in the club O.B. City. Just call 1-800-LARD-ASS. I'll be there, so will Odessa and my sis Anna. We all are working on our weight issues.

On second thought, don't dial that number. Would you believe I tried that once, just to see if that was a real number and what it lead to, and I got some kind of an interview company. It's apparently a company that does interviews for other companies. I never heard of a place like that before, and I thought I just made that number up. LOL! But apparently not. And there is such a profession. So, Oprah won't lose weight or get weight-loss support if she calls that number. But if she loses her job as a talk-show host because of this, that number might get her an interview with another company that can give her a job.

See What I Mean...

I knew this would happen, the Bible-thumpers are in. LOL! One particularly entertaining individual who calls herself Paliban Mom, has accused me of never reading the Bible. HA!! If she only knew. This is why I have NOTHING to do with organized religion. I never said I didn't believe in GOD (in fact, I prove just the opposite every day), and I never said I didn't believe in Jesus (or that I "hate" Him) sorry man, but that was your own interpretation!! NOT mine!! But people like her are definitely why I hate organized religion!! Not GOD or Jesus, I hate religion in general!! It's a case of hate the message not the messenger.

I took a peek at her own blog, and she is bad-mouthing mormons. Saying they hate GOD. UGH!! My ma and stepfather happen to be mormons, and they do NOT hate GOD!! The main reason I hate religion: They pick on other religions to make themselves look superior. Not my style!! It's always about "My religion is right and their's is wrong!" and blah-blah-blah!! It gets downright annoying!! So I stay away! I worship GOD in my own way and under my own terms. You don't like it? Then you can kiss my behind!!!! If you ask me, this Paliban Mom needs to get her facts straight!! How dare she say my ma and stepfather don't love GOD!!??

And who the heck was it that brought up Barry Manilow?? OMG!! How on Earth did he get in this blog?? I don't even like the guy! LOL! Sorry, I am strictly an INXS fan. But oh heck! They'll now be saying INXS is evil! Not my Timmy though! He is a religious man, BTW! Just because it is a rock group does not mean it's full of evil musicians. And I loved the way JD sang Amazing Grace at the concert I went to in '06!! He sang as beautifully as a bird, or a whale!! hehe! Whichever animal you like listening to, he sounded good!!! People who are such strict Christians that they wouldn't allow someone to have a bit of fun listening to their favorite music make me barf!! Pure and simple!! I remember when I was about 8 years old, ma used to watch the 700 Club on television. And one day Pat Robertson was telling the World how evil rock music was, and some of them when played backwards had satanic messages in them. Well, NONE of those songs he talked about were on our playlists back then, but ma got the wrong idea about all rock n roll songs and took our music tapes and tossed them away. I never did forgive her for that!! And I hold a deep resentment for the 700 Club to this day because of that!!

There was another religion that I heard of that said it was unGodly to have pets of any kind in the house. I remember I learned about that from a woman who used to pick me up some mornings to take me to school, along with her own little boy and another little boy who was in my class. She would never let her boy have a pet because she said it was against her religion. She didn't even like me at all because I had a dog. But I didn't care!! I was NOT about to give my dog up for her or for some dumb religion!!! I can live without people like her, I cannot live without my dogs!!! After a while, she stopped picking me up. She told my ma I was disrespectful to her. Oh Geez! Man, she was disrespectful to ME!! NOT the other way around!!! She was just pissed because I told her no religion is worth giving up my dogs for, and I was glad I wasn't a part of it! All that from an 8 year old! LOL! Well, my feelings were not at all hurt when she never came back to pick me up again. So that is why I prefer now to worship GOD in my own way! Doing it my way, I can listen to whatever music I want, I can have as many pets as I want, and I only have to answer to HIM. Not some nameless, faceless pastor of some church far away preaching a religion I can't even remember about what beliefs are what!! GOD has been good to me so far, so I must be doing something right.

I also despise going to church. I never liked it. I always felt it was wrong. I never saw the point in going to church to prove that I am a worshipper of GOD. I would think the fact that I have always obeyed the 10 commandments, and always treated others with respect (well, at least I did when I was growing up before being scarred by people) was proof enough. That's more than Paliban Mom can say.

And just FTR, the homosexual guys I know are indeed Christians! There is apparently a movement going on now to get Christianity to accept homosexuals into their church. It seems to be working! They are people too! They should be as accepted as anyone else, regardless of whatever old-fashioned ways you all are thinking.

Sunday, December 7, 2008


Well, that creepy little church I quoted today surprisingly allows people to comment and send e-mails. Why would anyone want to do that I wonder? But I'll tell you, they must get a lot of hate mail. Look at this Disclaimer they have on their e-mail page:

Please Review the Message Below
PLEASE NOTE: "If you send an e-mail submission to this site, you are certifying that you are 18 years or older and you are granting The Landover Baptist™ Parody Website a worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive and fully sublicensable right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform and display your submission (in whole or part including your personal e-mail address) and/or to incorporate it in other works in any form, media, or technology now known or later developed." This means, we could write a book and include your email messages and all of the money we make from your stupidity belongs to our Godly Pastor, Deacon Fred! Praise Jesus!

Well, looking at their quotes on my last post on this blog, we all know now they are going to take e-mails and twist the meanings of the words we write as these people are nuts and have nothing better to do with their lives. But if you'd like to submit your own "stupidity" to their little book (believe me, nobody can possibly be as stupid as these people and still be alive), you can e-mail them by all means!! They may find this blog, thanks to the dirty dozen mob, and see what I have to say about them. But hey! I can write books myself! And I have!! And I can write a book about this group and put some truth in their articles where there was none before. And they call themselves "Godly"?? I think GOD would be ashamed, as I am and I have nothing to do with these people!!

Complaining Christians Without A Cause

And without a LIFE!!!! Oh my GOD! This is why I have NOTHING to do with organized religion! This is from a Baptist church site, landoverbaptist.org. They seem to have nothing better to do than to pick on Disney movies and blame them for all the evils in this World!! I will admit I am getting a bit bored with Pixar-style animation, as I do tend to miss the old ways, but the things these people accuse Disney film makers of doing is silly! I have to comment!! I mean, these people just get downright ridiculous!! I tell you, I'd be kicked out of this church fast! I cannot see things the way these people do. I would be considered "unsaved" because I don't believe that dinosaurs look like penises, or because I believe ALL fish are supposed to only be green in color. And if you'd notice, their motto on the top of the page says "Unsaved are not welcome". It also says "the largest, most powerful assembly of worthwhile people to ever exist". They sure are full of themselves, aren't they!!?? And these are supposed to be Christians!! Sounds more like a demonic cult. Well, I decided to roast this site for today. Let's look first at these people tearing down the movie "Dinosaur", which came out in 2000.

Here is the link: http://www.landoverbaptist.org/news0600/dinosaur.html

They say: "Dinosaur," the latest propaganda film from the Disney company, tries to indoctrinate America's children with the idea that it's "a-ok" to have disgusting sexual relations outside of a Christian marriage.

My response: This is a movie about ANIMALS!! Since when have any animals had to put on a wedding suit, go to a church, stand before a preacher and say "I do" just to prove they are together? One of the worst cases of anthropomorphism I've ever seen!!

They say: Barney taught our youngsters that it was just fine and dandy to be a big flaming sissy who wears outrageously homosexual colors like purple.

My response: Everyone knows Barney was a drip!! But it wasn't because he was purple!! And that must be something new, I never heard of purple only being for homosexuals, and I went to church my whole childhood.

They say: Coyly voiced dinosaurs spew lewd and licentious double (sometimes triple) entendres and give each other “come and get me” looks that would make a streetwalker blush. Indeed, even the most radical liberal can see the unGodly intentions of this filth.

My response: You know, I'm as liberal as a person can get and I didn't see anything unGodly in the film!

They say: It is a well known fact that no one alive today has ever seen a dinosaur, since God killed them all off in the Great Flood.

My response: Really? I always thought it was an asteroid that killed them, since more proof of that has been found. *rolls eyes*

They say: But this doesn’t stop Hollywood from making most of them look like big long male sex organs.

My response: I had to laugh at this statement!! Dinosaurs looked like penises?? LOL!! No more than a giraffe or a sea lion looks like one!! So are these people going to say anyone who goes to a zoo is lewd and crude??

They say: Even the caves in which the dinosaurs live are made to look like the orifice of a woman's most sacred region.

My response: This person either needs to get glasses or get a life!! It looked like nothing but a regular cave to me!!

They say: now parents have to monitor "G" rated films because Hollywood homosexual cartoonists are once again blatantly attempting to recruit innocent children into their evil lifestyle through the big screen.

My response: Geez man, SHUT UP!!!!!

They say: This vicious attack on America's youth is the last straw!

My response: I think your attack on these cartoons is the last straw! If you all say this about Disney cartoons, I'd be interested in seeing what you all say about such cartoons as Spongebob, which I think is a stupid cartoon!!! And the drawings are MUCH more crude than those of any Disney movies.

They say: As if the sex wasn't enough,

My response: So far, you have not been able to accurately point out one single scene in this movie that involved any actual physical sexual acts.

They say: the script writers also made certain that the film was as historically inaccurate as possible. Christian creation scientists have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that human beings walked the earth at the same time the dinosaurs did

My response: I swear I choked when I saw this line! What a riot!! I still have not been able to find anyone who believes in creation that can show me dinosaurs buried in the same rocks as giant sloths, mammoths, saber-toothed cats, rhinos, or even people. Proven?? By WHOM??? I'd like to meet the person who has proven that theory!! I have a great number of questions for him (or her).

They say: yet there is not one human being in the entire film.

My response: Even if it were true that humans and dinosaurs were around at the same time, the movie is called "Dinosaur". Not "Humans". If you notice, Bambi also had no humans pictured in the movie, yet deer and humans ARE indeed walking the Earth at the same time.

They say: If you can stomach this, then your intestines must be made of solid lead.

My response: Well, I guess I'll be giving my "solid lead" guts a workout, because of all the diarrhea I've had to read in this article.

They say: The satanic plot involves a young dinosaur who is continually seeking ever-greater sexual thrills through multiple partners, not caring whether its sexual perversion is carried out with a male or female dinosaur

My response: As far as I know, the dinosaur only found one partner, until then, he didn't want a mate at all. Just the animals he considered his family.

They say: It just wants to commit unnatural acts.

My response: Once more, we are talking about ANIMALS!! How much more natural can it get??? IMO, marriage is UNnatural!!! One reason why I don't want to get married.

They say: We don't even know if the main character is a male or female,

My response: Are you crazy or just DUMB??? I would think the manly-type voice (and the fact it is always called "he" or "him" throughout the movie) would give that away right off.

They say: During its journey, it meets three little monkey-birds

My response: Huh??? What the heck are "monkey-birds"??? I don't think I remember seeing anything like that in the movie.

They say: These little monkey-birds attach themselves near the dinosaur's anus. It is never explained why.

My response: Maybe it is never explained why because it never happened in the movie.

That does it!! Trying to understand this idiot is like trying to read posts on the delusional fans forum by Catsredrum or Mayday06!! It seems everything this guy thinks about the movie is taken out of context and the meanings twisted around so he can give the plot meanings of his own. He goes on to say things in the article like "They just hang there through the whole movie, and sexual acts are implied when the characters are off screen." What makes this dipshit think he knows what kind of "acts" is going on offscreen?? Did he help animate the movie??? I wouldn't listen to a word he says!! He doesn't know SHIT!!!

Well, someone called my attention to another article on that site, this one about Finding Nemo. I will admit the movie was something of a mistake because people were going to fish stores and buying clownfish without knowing anything about them, that was probably the worst thing about that movie. But listen to what this idiot says on this site.

Here is the article: http://www.landoverbaptist.org/news0703/nemo.html

First of all, check out the caption under that picture. Has anyone else seen the movie? If so, does anyone remember any place in the movie where it can be interpreted in the slightest that Nemo's father was telling Dory that he was homosexual??

They say: Christian pastors here at Landover Baptist thought their tireless efforts to warn Americans about the carefully disguised homosexual agenda targeting toddlers through Disney cartoons was working.

My response: No, not really. But then again let's face it, no decent person cares what you all say!

They say: They thought that since President George W. Bush, a devout Christian who attends a Bible church regularly and believes in the same three-headed God (Father, Son, and flying side-kick, The Holy Ghost) took office, that Americans were finally waking up.

My response: So that explains Bush's stupidity! Also, "flying side-kick"? I went to church a great number of years as a child, and this is the first time I've heard anyone refer to The Holy Ghost as "the flying side-kick"!!

They say: Our pastors took for granted that Americans understood that Jesus is not above sending little children straight to Hell for watching cartoons.

My response: I guess I'm going straight to Hell. So are all cartoonists, including the ones who made the movie "The Prince of Egypt".

So this is what their Pastor Deacon Fred said about Finding Nemo:

Fred says: Walt Disney would be spinning in his grave if he knew his animation studios were full of giggling homosexuals,

My response: Did you actually know Walt Disney?? And here we go again with the "homosexuals" comments.

Fred says: But as we all know, Walt Disney never made it to Heaven.

My response: We know that?? How? I would think that would be between Disney himself and GOD. Nobody else's business!!

Fred says: Although he hated Jews almost as much as the Apostle Paul did, he never took the time to accept Jesus Christ as his personal savior.

My response: If he hated Jewish people so much, why did he use a lot of Jewish actors to illustrate his cartoons? Almost all celebrities with any amount of character back then were Jewish, and they were enjoyable.

Fred says: So Mr. Disney is burning in Hell right now and God melted his eyes right out of his head.

My response: Is this how Christians are supposed to talk? How shameful!! Sounds more like something that would come out of the mouth of a teenager hooked on video games! Not a Deacon of a church!!!

Fred says: The poor fellow can't even see that his wholesome empire of family entertainment is overrun by prancing homos, skipping through its echoey corridors like clomping herds of wild ponies.

My response: Here we go again!! Same shit, different asshole!!

Fred says: Some folks don't think they need Pastors like myself to tell them what to think, but apparently they do, otherwise, they wouldn't be letting their children keep seeing these disgusting Disney cartoons

My response: I don't need you!! I don't need people like you!! I have my own thoughts and my own mind!! Just cuz I don't think the way you do, don't think for one minute means I need people like you! I like Disney cartoons.

Fred says: Just in case you ain't a Christian person, and can't see that Satan and the damn liberals and homos are behind just about everything that is wrong with this country, let me clue you in.

My response: "Damn liberals"?? Hm. So because a person has a mind of their own means they are evil homosexuals? (And once more, here we go again with the "homosexual" comments).

Fred says: The movie, Finding Nemo incorporates an exaggerated use of unnecessarily bright colors, and hues (especially pink and yellow).

My response: I will admit they could have used less colorful animals to illustrate the story with, but listen to his reasons against these colors....

Fred continues: As True Christians™, we know that these colors are like a trail of poop leading right up to the rabbit hole of homosexuality.

My response: Oh brother! Again with the "homosexual" comments. These people never tire of spewing that BS!! And what's with the trademark symbol after "true christians"? Only us INXS followers are allowed to trademark ourselves ;) hehe!

Fred says: Do they take us for fools?

My response: You? Noooooo! You're doing a much better job of presenting yourself as one on your own.

Fred says: I've been to the fishing hole before, my friends - and I've never had a tug on my line from any orange or yellow striped demon possessed looking fish.

My response: Have you ever caught an actual clownfish? Wouldn't exactly give your line much of a tug I wouldn't think!

Fred says: Everyone knows that fish are green!

My response: Well, I didn't know that, and I've worked with fish all my life. *rolls eyes* I think he's confusing fish with frogs!!

Fred says: Every time I see a commercial for this movie, it makes me want to scream and smack my giggling little grandson in the head!

My response: I'm glad you're not my father or grandfather. I'd smack you in the head for smacking my child in the head over something as small as that!! And if I was your grandson I'd hate you for life!!!

Fred says: And it wouldn't be my fault if I did smack him! It's them damned homos who forced me to do it!

My response: Yeah, blame everyone else for your stupidity except yourself. FYI, it IS your fault you're stupid!!! To quote your own words: "Praise the sweet name of Jesus!"

Fred says: Since I don't have to lift up a sewer lid, to know it stinks down there - I also don't have to see movies to know that they are about.

My response: Maybe you should try seeing a movie before critiquing it, then you'd actually know what you are talking about! Trying to critique a movie without having seen it just makes you look dumb! Then, you can lift the lid of that stinking sewar, and crawl back in it where you belong.

Fred says: Aside from the homosexual cartoonist's calling card of high budget glitz and glamour that accompanies each new Disney/Pixar release, there is a more sinister agenda at work here. This film is about a young fish boy from a single family fish home.

My response: Again, we are talking about FISH!! Who gives a shit if it is from a single-family FISH home, or if both parents raise it?? This is as dumb a statement as the "dinosaurs who aren't married" comments!!

Fred says: He rightly runs away after finding out his daddy fish is a flopping homosexual.

My response: Here we go again, and again, and again!! Children occasionally defy their parents, it's normal behavior. So you're logic is implying a parent who tries to get their child to mind them is doing it because they are homosexual, and the child who is defying them is just trying to run away from their "homosexual" parent?? That makes a lot of sense (NOT!!!) First, I'm beginning to wonder, do you even know what homosexual means???? I'm starting to believe you don't!

Fred says: His daddy fish wants him to come back home and live with his boyfriend!

My response: I don't recall the father fish even having a boyfriend!

Fred says: This homo-fish intends to marry outside of his own fish race by taking up residence with a male blow fish.

My response: Huh??? You haven't seen this movie have you, bub? I don't recall the father fish taking up with a male blowfish!

This dude is nuts! And I mean too crazy for me!! Too, TOO crazy!!! I can't even think of an equal for this guy, except maybe people already in prison or the looney bin!! I cannot read anymore. You all can read it and interpret what you want. I'm finished!! But just to give you a clue to the stupidity of this website, I wanted to post my responses.

I Want!!!

I saw this commercial last night and it was about a cell phone that was so cool!! Remember when all you used to be able to do with cell phones is just talk?! This one, you can not only talk, but the feature I liked the most was fascinating, and nothing else in the World has it!!! Did you ever have a song that you recorded off the radio and you didn't know the name of the song or who sings it? I have! And it drives me NUTS!!!! But with this iphone 3G from AT&T you can hold the phone up to your stereo, play the song and the phone will tell you the name of the song, who sings it, and even tell you where you can purchase that song! That's way cool!!! I want that phone!! I've never been one for getting cell phones with all that fancy technology because I have enough trouble remembering to push the talk button on my phone!! But this is COOL!!!! I have so many songs I want to get and can't because I don't have a clue of what the title is or who the devil sings it!!!! Makes me MAD!!!! Most of the songs are from this old record we used to have when we were kids, and lost. But found it again like in the late 80s, and had it for a long while until I sold the record player (and all my records) in 1993. I recorded the records before I sold them, but I never thought to write down the song titles or who sang them. Back then, I never even thought there would ever be such a thing as downloadable music off the internet. Shoot! Back then I never even heard of the internet!!!

This phone not only finds songs, it is an ipod, a GPS, and an internet provider that even finds your bookmarks on your computer. I have a lot of things bookmarked that I don't even use. I keep them anyway. Never know when I'll need them. But anyway, I want this phone!! Or I at least want to know someone who has one!! Then I can find these dang songs that are driving me nuts trying to figure out who sings them and all. I know they still exist, I still hear them from time to time. I am never able to catch the names anyway. But nothing makes me crazy more than having a song I know I like, and cannot get it because I don't know who sings it or what the title is!! I remember I got lucky once when I found out who sings this one song that I loved but could not even think of who sang it. I had to call the radio station I last heard the song on, and ask them. It turned out to be Rasputin by Boney M. I had the song recorded on audio tape off the radio, but the announcer never revealed who sang that song, that I know of anyway. If he did ever say it, it was long since forgotten!! But that song drove me nuts for years because I didn't know anything about it except that I liked it, and it sounded GOOD!!!

We need gadgets like this that aren't phones. Like a wireless internet-type gadget that I can just plug in, play the song on my stereo and it'll tell me right off what the name of the song is, then I can at least try to find it myself.
