this is fun.

try to beat my high score of 82.

clearing up some confusion...rules for the game:

Game Instructions

Fastr is a game that uses flickr images. It loads ten images that all share a common tag, one by one, and you guess what the tag is. When you guess right, the tag will turn blue. Then you can watch the pictures until the next set begins. The faster you guess, the more points you get. The points are reset every five minutes. Don't forget to enter a player name.

GOOGLE = PROTECTOR OF CIVIL LIBERTIES (and some chit-chat about movies)

SAN FRANCISCO - Google Inc. is rebuffing the Bush administration's demand for a peek at what millions of people have been looking up on the Internet's leading search engine - a request that underscores the potential for online databases to become tools for government surveillance.

next thing you know they are going to want to listen to all our phone calls too.


in movie news tim robbins is looking to remake 1984. (que an araider tirade about hollyweird and how liberal actors are assholes) but I think in the political climate we are in now we could use some more warnings about becoming a bunch of mindless sheep.

to tell you the truth some of the best films this past year have been politically based.

syriana, lord of war, good night and good luck, the constant gardner, jarhead, paradise now munich.

not to mention some of my other favorites...the manchurian candidate, fog of war, dr. strangelove (or how I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb), jfk, nixon, wag the dog, fahrenheit 9/11, a clockwork orange, the contender, citizen kane, bulworth, the insider, hotel rwanda, mr. smith goes to washington, traffic, the candidate, the war room, fail safe, all the kings men, bob roberts, primary colors, election and all the presidents men.

oh yeah...and team america: world police.

any I missed?

will you go see this movie?

from a new york times article:

After almost universally shying away from the topic for the past four years, Hollywood is turning in full force to the events of Sept. 11, 2001. Painful memories, all-too-familiar news clips and personal stories are now being transformed into big-screen dramas, as studios look for commercial value in the still-fresh trauma, while prompting the mass audience to revisit its thoughts and feelings.

This spring will bring the release of the first feature film to focus specifically on the attacks: "Flight 93," from the director Paul Greengrass, based on the hijacking that led to the crash of a United Airlines plane into a field in Somerset County, Pa.

The movie, to be released by Universal Pictures, is being filmed in Pinewood Studios (the site of many James Bond films). The filmmakers said "Flight 93" had the cooperation of all the families of the passengers who died on the flight. Many agreed to participate because they felt that previous attempts to document the crash focused on just the few passengers who had been able to make calls to their family members.

no doubt this will be a hot topic in the next few months.

"In America, we hurry--which is well; but when the day's work is done, we go on thinking of losses and gains, we plan for the morrow, we even carry our business cares to bed with us...we burn up our energies with these excitements, and either die early or drop into a lean and mean old age at a time of life which they call a man's prime in Europe...What a robust people, what a nation of thinkers we might be, if we would only lay ourselves on the shelf occasionally and renew our edges!"

does anyone really believe that the illegal taps end at phone taps?

don't you think that all our e-mails and computer correspondence are being watched too?

not to mention what we download, what we upload, what we watch, what we hear, what we read, what we buy, what we throw away, what we keep, where we go, where we stay, how long we stay, who we see, how long we see them, who we talk shit about, who we praise, who we don't praise.

was orwell only 20 years off?

A secret Pentagon study has found that at least 80 percent of the marines who have been killed in Iraq from wounds to their upper body could have survived if they had extra body armor. That armor has been available since 2003 but until recently the Pentagon has largely declined to supply it to troops despite calls from the field for additional protection, according to military officials. (source)

now that is just plain messed up.

how is it that we spend 400 billion on defense and we cant get our soldiers these vest plates? how does that make sense?

I guess it has to be one of two things.

1. inept management by this administration and congress

2. not giving a shit.

I would hope it's not number two but apparently ( as we all already knew) they didn't expect an insurgency anyhow. I mean go to war and 2 + years later you finally admit this:

When asked who was to blame for the subsequent Iraqi rebellion, in which thousands of Iraqis and Americans have died, Bremer said "we really didn't see the insurgency coming." (source)

I guess that's what you get when you ignore, fire or force to retire all of the people who may be critical or have a different take on how to handle the situation.

now we are seeing just how corrupt these asses in washington are. the other shoe has dropped. (and it's like a size 15 steel toed work boot.)

first they start a war and have no exit strategy (vietnam) then we spy on other americans (watergate) now it looks as if we are trying to outdo history and seem to have "the most corrupt congress in history. (or at least this congress is getting caught in the act)

so what is my take on all this.

clean house.

...or should I say clean all three houses?

house of representatives
the senate
the white house.

just when you thought the religious fervor in this country couldn't get any higher I submit to you the christian throwback jersey and worship jamz.

now jesus can score points while you play basketball football or baseball (even hockey for those of you up in the great white north) or jesus can score some music for you and your children while you drive happily to church in your mini van.

what I love most are the little things in these items.

like for instance if you click discounts on the christian throwback get a better discount if you are a church or a religious organization rather than just your average group sale. would it be wrong to lie and say you were from a religious organization? I mean it is a 3% discount! that could really add up when I am trying to suit up my teams "matthews menacing mob" "marks madmen" "lukes lancers" and "johns jackalopes."

also on the worship jamz sure to check out "sweating in the spirit". now I bet that's a fun work out. 1, and 2, and do it for jesus, and 4 .

also did you ever notice that some of the songs about god and jesus if sang by different artists could be very misleading...even if the same words were used?

for instance...if nine inch nails sang "did you feel the mountains tremble" I think it would be a very different song.

how about the sexy "you are my king (amazing love)" by shakira.

I personally would love to hear a nice rousing version of "trading my sorrows" by korn.

...but when I get a beverage on a plane I get ginger ale.

I never drink ginger ale

(unless I am in the air I guess)

maybe it tastes better up there.
