On Friday I usually like to minimize my actual work output and maximize my online movie/tv intake. This Friday is no different. This link was sent to me by my boss so I figure it is ok to watch it during work today. I highly suggest you watch it before Google removes it. Learn.
I really hope WC picks up this new line of crazy china-woman iPod tops. These stupids will put iPod controls in anything these days. I don’t get it. What if you want to control you homo-pod with a simple touch of the collar bone, but you don’t dress like a hooker? Don’t worry, they have jerks designing iClothes for the norms out there too.
The Furze new album U.T.D. (not to be confused with the indie band with the same name) is some exceptionally good black metal out of Europe . The sound quality is top notch and the lyrical content is guaranteed to give you nightmares for the next week. My favorite song on the album is Goats Breathe and it stays in heavy rotation on my ipod . If you haven’t heard this yet you are slipping and need to hit me up for a burnt copy or if you are not into pirating it can be purchased at Everyday Music on Broadway for around $15.

Did you ever wonder why a couple days would go by on the BLAHBLOG without any updates ? Well for 1 the Blogger system is a lil buggy but for 2 my god damned web host server Geek Hosting/Nine Dot Systems are busy sucking eggs instead of doing routine maintenance on there accounts . Here is a couple screen shots of how the WC team gets to the bottom of problems with these computer jerks.
So I sent about 5 messages stating that I had continual problems with the server over the last 2 weeks and this was there reply to me:
I thought this was unacceptable so I forwarded the message to my Internet bouncer Pheed and this is what he told them :
So after 2 weeks of Nine Dot messing around I received this response to Pheeds email in about 2 hours:
and now my server works great !!!!!!
Moral of the story is next time you are getting jerked around use the old bird flu curse for quick and simple resolution. In the words of Pheed “It’s like a compliment sandwich”, and it seems to work every time.
The first time I met Alex he was singing Boys II Men in a Vietnamese accent while pissing in the middle of Pine. This week he has taken off to sleep on a murphy bed in SF and all I have left of him is a scar on my shoulder. He is a true inspiration with tattoos like “Go For It!” and quotes like “hells yes”. If you’re ever within arms-reach, give his hair a little fingering…its so soft it can’t even be cornrowed (he does a weekly VO5 hot oil treatment). Fool smokes sunflowers seeds too. Bon voyage, Alex. Or, in his words, “see ya tomorrow.”

A federal civil-rights lawsuit over the violent arrest of a young African-American man is drawing new attention to Seattle Police Chief Gil Kerlikowske and his record on police discipline. Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes is suing the city, the chief and several officers, alleging police violated his civil rights during his arrest for allegedly obstructing justice, resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer outside a bar in 2005. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People cited the case last week in calling for Kerlikowske’s resignation. Kerlikowske did not punish any of the officers involved in the incident, even though records show the civilian director of the Office of Professional Accountability (OPA), which oversees internal police investigations, found two were guilty of excessive force and all three were guilty of serious breaches in conduct. She recommended discipline for all three,Kerlikowske declined to comment on the Alley-Barnes case.
Publik Hair Ed.Note. Anyone who knows Maikoiyo for even a minute knows that he is one of the more mellow,respectful,and smart people you will ever meet Black or White and there’s no way that the cops felt threatend by him.The fact that it took 4 officers to arrest and violently beat a man who’s walking away from a bar after simply stating his opinion is something that no tax paying American should have to put up with let alone experience first hand.I feel sick to my stomach that these power tripping jocko’s can still get away with this bullshit,take a stand and let the Mayor know that Gil Kerlikowske has to go.
BLAHBLOG ed note: This is my dude yall and SPD just did same shit to everyones homie DV1 stand up for these guys and write a letter to the courts and tell them we are not going to take this BS . Good luck you guys !
