Also, JJ Connelly, the director of Gothkill, remembered when I was having the problem with getting my copy of it a couple years back and handed me the new version of it. For free. So go order a copy for yourself!!! Seriously, best modern B-movie I know of, and anyone who knows me knows I'm not a very kind critic.

11:16 am - Misc. shit

Farcebook crapped out on me for the better part of this past week, with the login screen saying it's a "maintenance" issue. Yeah. Right. Even MySpace doesn't keep me offline for more than 24 hours. I'll stick with the MySpace profile as the default due to better UI.

The sis-in-law twisted her ankle due to some incompetent shit leaving his bag right where other people walk: IN FRONT OF A TRAIN DOOR. She's been crashing here due to easier access to certain things.

Speaking of easier access, finally got the wife a new comp. Windoze 7 is weird. I miss XP's UI, even though Ubuntu's is superior. Speaking of which, I'm using the laptop right now because I'm updating the desktop's OS from Ubuntu 9.04 to Ubuntu 9.10. This process is what fucked my old comp up, but that was still an experimental build and a tower that I got back in 2003. This 9.10 is allegedly stable and I'm trying it out now.

Oh yeah...I'll be at Otto's Shrunken Head tonight. :P

I know precisely which con I'm going to in 2010, and it shares the same building with another con I'm also attending that weekend, and it's a con easily accessible by the M42 bus. This really does nothing but fuck over the people who want to go to both events, and Reed Exhibitions DID schedule that weekend first. I'm glad I didn't buy a weekend pass to BACC this year. I'd have been tempted to toss it out and try to get in using my '09 NYCC badge just for the lulz.

In all honesty, I don't expect Wizard World to be in this business much longer.

Some of the guys representing New York Comic Con (who also run New York Anime Festival) were booted out of Big Apple Comic Con yesterday. I don't fucking get it. I see other cons advertise at NYCC and NYAF (Otakon '10 had a booth at NYAF). Oh wait...NYCC and BACC are on the same weekend next year.

I told the wife earlier that I was entertaining the thought of doing an IRL troll of BACC by showing up wearing my NYCC '09 badge. She shot it down saying that the higher-ups in BACC probably won't even hear about it and that others are also having the same thoughts.

Speaking of the wife, her comp died a few days ago. First my old comp, then her external hard drive, and now her tower. Did Skynet go online while I was asleep one day or some shit?

Long story short: We effectively did the same things we did the previous two days, except the whole thing shut down at 5 (and we left less than an hour prior to that). Today's pictures start at #26, and here's what I picked up:

A "knife-with-a-surprise"
A "royal flush in spades" set of throwing cards
A t-shirt that says "Just because you can breed doesn't mean you should"
A "Happi Paper" plushie and this shirt for the wife

I'm glad this thing's only three days. I started off with $1200 and ended up with...$60. Of course, I gave some money to the wife, too, but still...

I snap some more pictures, she gets snapped by some people, we pick up more DVDs and a couple more toothpicks. End of the day we support her sis and her fashion designs at the Bishounen's Closet panel.

The swag for me this time around:
Two Girls, One-Up shirt from the Halolz booth
A full-tang katana for $50 (!!!)
A knife similar to this one
Four DVDs: Ghost in the Shell 2; Azumi; Claymore vol. 6; Oh! My Zombie Mermaid

Two knives, including the WW1-era trench knife
3 DVDs - Origin: Spirits of the Past; Fist of the North Star movie; Machine Girl
Two t-shirts from Pegasus Publishers(this one and this one)

I picked up a two-knife set for the wife. I'll let her post what she got. :P

Also, I don't feel that drained. Given how I felt after the past two cons, this is a surprise.

Google Threatens Cyanogen Android Hacker With Cease-and-Desist
By Dan Nosowitz, 12:30 AM on Fri Sep 25 2009
This is a weird one: Google has just slapped Cyanogen, maker of the biggest and most successful Android ROM mod around, with a cease-and-desist letter. But Google's reasoning doesn't make any sense, and we're wondering what their game is.

See, Google's cease-and-desist specifically states that Cyanogen should stop passing around Google's closed-source apps like Google Maps, Google Talk and Gmail, because those are only supposed to be used on Google Experience Android devices like the G1 and MyTouch 3G. That makes sense, except for one thing: Cyanogen only works on the exact devices those closed-source apps were designed for, like, well, the G1 and MyTouch 3G. So what's the point of trying to stop Cyanogen?

Engadget suggests that maybe Google just wants to discourage rooting of their devices in general, which seems awfully contrary to the Android open-source philosophy. Truth is, we have no idea why Google would want to stop a thriving and well-received modder, but Cyanogen says he's trying to open up some communication with the big G, so hopefully we'll get an explanation soon.

----------------------------------------------------
This is what I consider to be a "total fucking dick move" on Google's part, their first major one since the time Google allowed itself to be bullied by Maoist China. I use CyanogenMod 4.0.4 on my G1 and it actually runs FASTER than the stock OS.

First they removed WiFi Tether apps from the Android Market, now this. If they keep being dicks, I'll not only start using that Bing search engine, but I'll also get a phone with a different OS when I'm due for an upgrade.

NY Comic Con, NY Anime Fest to Share Same Weekend in 2010
posted on 2009-09-10 14:01 EDT
The event organizers at Reed Exhibitions have confirmed on Thursday that New York Comic Con and New York Anime Festival will share the same weekend and location next year. Both events will take place at the Jacob K. Javits Center in Midtown Manhattan on October 8-10, 2010. While the two events will have separate guest rosters and programming schedules, they will share a common show floor and one ticket price. Each ticket will give an attendee access to both events.

The first New York Anime Festival was held in the same center on December 7-9, 2007, while the second outing was held on September 26-28, 2008. The 2010 announcement comes two weeks before the event returns to the Javits Center for a third time on September 25-27.

In its four years of existence, New York Comic Con has been mostly held in February, although it moved to April last year. Lance Fensterman, Vice President of the Reed Exhibitions Pop Culture Group, explained that the date move will better accommodate Reed's other major North American pop culture event, Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo. "We are launching the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2) in April 2010, and we have moved NYCC to a permanent October date, thus providing a spring and fall balance to these two key events which will remain in place as we move forward. Rather than create a third date for NYAF, it was decided a co-location would be better for anime fans, professionals, exhibitors, and partners."

1) Finally got my glasses back. New lenses, ten-year-old aviator frames (military issue). Transition lenses, too, so I shouldn't have to rely on sunglasses I'd likely lose within 60 days of buying them.

2) Say hi to Mary Jo on your way to oblivion, Teddy.

3) My old tower fucked up when trying to upgrade the operating system from Ubuntu 9.04 to 9.10. When I tried to reload 9.04 on it, it wouldn't work at all. So I had to go all the fucking way to Fordham's Best Buy to buy this computer. They had a similar model with a more powerful processor and bigger hard drive, but the price tag was what I was looking at. Managed to install Ubuntu 9.04 directly off the internets and have everything up-and-running via Terminal. NOTE TO SELF: Upgrade on the next STABLE release.

4) I don't know how the fuck it happened and I spent a good amount of time before I went to work trying to fix the problem, but...does anyone know what could be fucked up with an external hard drive that was working before I tried plugging it into a laptop? It's not the power cord and it's not the USB cord and it's not the drivers. I checked all three with the other one on both my computer and tygerlander's XP-loaded comp.

5) Speaking of the wife, I need to start watching Bleach instead of just reading the mangas. She wants to do something at Anime Fest relating to the anime...o.0

Thank you wifey. Because you said you want me to get a car sometime down the road over a month ago, I've actually been looking up who would sell a car for cheapest.{/sarcasm} Anyone out there who knows me knows that, with the exception of horror, sci-fi, and black comedies (Dr. Strangelove, not Friday), car-chase movies made before 1985 (and a few made recently, including Death Proof) are among my favorite movies. Think Cannonball Run, Smokey and the Bandit, Vanishing Point, among others (White Line Fever is next on my "old movies to watch" list), and Dukes of Hazzard was one of my favorite shows growing up.

Factor all this in with what she said over a month ago and I've been looking into getting a musclecar. My first search included cars from the 60s and 70s. By the way Barack Obama al-Honolulu, how the fuck is it a "clunker" if the engine runs smoothly and doesn't die five miles down the road? Looking for several such vehicles under ten grand yielded no success, and this was looking into even the less-popular models. So I was thinking, "wait a second, new cars might be made of plastic but some of them do classify as musclecars." So I look at Major World's website and (for now) they're selling an '08 Charger for just nine grand.

First, though, I need to save up some money. Which is my current project. Getting a car will be a future project.

Day 983 of my captivity...

My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets.
Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength.
The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet.
Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates what I am capable of. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a 'good little hunter' I am. Bastards.
There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of 'allergies.' I must learn what this means and how to use it to my advantage.
Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow -- but at the top of the stairs.
I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released - and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded.
The bird has got to be an informant. I observe him communicating with the guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move.. My captors have arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cell, so he is safe. For now.

Obama SignsTobacco Bill
Posted: 06/22/09
by Patricia Murphy

Clove cigarettes are officially history. So are "light" cigarettes and your favorite Marlboro billboard next to KinderCare.

Monday in the Rose Garden, President Obama signed the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act, a bill that gives the Food and Drug Administration the responsibility to regulate tobacco products.

Before signing the bill, Obama said that tobacco-related illnesses are the leading cause of preventable death in the United States, and he detailed all the ways that kids get hooked on smokes before they turn 18. He ought to know, he said, because "I was one of these teenagers, so I know how difficult it can be to break this habit when it's been with you for a long time."

Is the prez still taking drags while nobody's looking? He wouldn't say, but he did say what's in the new law:

* FDA regulations will supersede weaker state laws, a major expansion of federal power;
* The bill bans the words "light" or "mild" in tobacco advertising, as well as any words that give the impression that one cigarette is less dangerous than another;
* It bans flavored tobacco products, like clove or cappuccino cigarettes (yes, they exist);
* It requires companies to submit a complete list of ingredients in the tobacco, paper, filter and other components, and allows the FDA to require the removal of any additive it says is dangerous;
* It requires this list of ingredients to be placed on all labels, which will itemize chemicals added to tobacco products;
* It restricts tobacco marketing to children, such as tobacco billboards near schools.

Finally, the legislation applies to all tobacco products, not just cigarettes, and it passes all of the additional costs of new regulations back to the tobacco companies.

*additional video on website*
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
I may not smoke, but has the government forgotten what it was like when they banned alcohol in the US? You're going to make flavored cigarettes a booming underground business.

Also, follow the money trail. Cloves don't make up that much in tobacco sales (about 1%), while menthol smokes, another "flavor," make up 25%.

One more thing, this time FTA: Is the prez still taking drags while nobody's looking? Possible hypocrite right there.

I was working all night trying to get it working on my laptop so the wife could take it to Baltimore with her so she could go on Farcebook via a wifi connection.

3) Speaking of Ubuntu on my desktop, I need to figure out how to get WINE (a terminal-based Windows emulator) working smoothly on here.

Court Rules for White Firefighters Over Promotions
Supreme Court rules for white firefighters in dispute over promotions
By MARK SHERMAN Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON June 29, 2009 (AP)

The Supreme Court ruled Monday that white firefighters in New Haven, Conn., were unfairly denied promotions because of their race, reversing a decision that high court nominee Sonia Sotomayor endorsed as an appeals court judge.

New Haven was wrong to scrap a promotion exam because no African-Americans and only two Hispanic firefighters were likely to be made lieutenants or captains based on the results, the court said Monday in a 5-4 decision. The city said that it had acted to avoid a lawsuit from minorities.

The ruling could alter employment practices nationwide and make it harder to prove discrimination when there is no evidence it was intentional.

"Fear of litigation alone cannot justify an employer's reliance on race to the detriment of individuals who passed the examinations and qualified for promotions," Justice Anthony Kennedy said in his opinion for the court. He was joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas.

Multiple reports: Michael Jackson dies at 50

(CNN) -- Entertainer Michael Jackson has died after being taken to a hospital on Thursday after suffering cardiac arrest, according to multiple reports including the Los Angeles Times and the Associated Press. CNN has not confirmed his death.

Jackson, 50, had been in a coma at the hospital, sources told CNN.

Brian Oxman, a Jackson family attorney, said he was told by brother Randy Jackson that Michael Jackson collapsed at his home in west Los Angeles Thursday morning.

Family members were told of the situation and were either at the hospital or en route, Oxman said.

Fire Capt. Steve Ruda told CNN a 911 call came in from a west Los Angeles residence at 12:21 p.m.

Ruda said Jackson was treated and transferred to the UCLA Medical Center.

Asked specifics of the patient's condition, he said he could not discuss them because of federal privacy laws.

The music icon from Gary, Indiana, is known as the "King of Pop." Jackson had many No. 1 hits and his "Thriller" is one of the best-selling albums of all time.

Jackson is the seventh of nine children in a well-known musical family. He has three children, Prince Michael I, Paris and Prince Michael II.

At the medical center, every entrance to the emergency room was blocked by security guards. Even hospital staffers were not permitted to enter. A few people stood inside the waiting area, some of them crying.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
That's one threat to little boys gone. Now all they have to worry about are all them pesky cathaholic priests.

On a more serious note, I wasn't a big fan of Jacko's. I only bought his "HIStory" album because of that "jew me /sue me /kick me /kike me" fuck-up. His only good track is "Thriller," and that's because of Vincent Price's cameo.

Cheyenne Cherry, teen accused of burning cat in oven, was busted in 2008 in armed dog-napping
BY Matthew Lysiak, Caitlin Millat Alison Gendar and Larry Mcshane
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITERS
The teen accused in a Bronx kitty killing was busted last year in the armed dog-napping of a teacup Yorkie, police said.

Cheyenne Cherry's boyfriend snatched the pooch from a woman in a Bronx park last June after holding a BB gun to her forehead, police said.

Days later, Cherry, 17, had the nerve to send friends to show up with the dog when a $500 reward was posted, the pooch's owner said. "She's evil," Johan Castro, 23, said.

Despite her June 2008 arrest for larceny and extortion, along with two other busts, Cherry was released without bail after being charged with letting a friend's kitten die inside a 200-degree oven.

"They wonder why this little girl doesn't learn right from wrong," Castro said. "If she's willing to kill a cat and steal my dog, what else will she do? She thinks she can beat the system."

Cherry said little Tiger Lily was killed during "a practical joke" - the same excuse she gave for shoving a gun in the robbery victim's face last year, cops said.

"It was just a joke," Cherry said after her arrest for robbing a man of his iPod at gunpoint. She pleaded guilty to robbery and got five years probation.

Cherry also had a 2007 arrest for smacking a girl in the head with jewelry, police said.

Cherry, now charged with aggravated cruelty to animals, arson, burglary and criminal mischief, is a dog owner who loves pets, her brother insisted.

"My sister is no cat killer," said David Cherry. "Cheyenne is not an animal hater. She has a little Yorkie that she loves."

In a cruel twist to the case, a Brooklyn retiree who shares a last name with Cherry is getting threats after someone mistakenly listed her number on a Web posting about the cat slaying.

"They're all saying, 'You'll burn in hell,' 'Who the hell do you think you are?'" Bernadette Cherry, 72, said of the 75 calls from cat lovers.

10:59 am - Okay, this makes my list of "bizarre deaths..."

from telegraph.co.uk, thanks wifey:

David Carradine found dead in wardrobe of Bangkok hotel
David Carradine, star of the television series Kung Fu and the Kill Bill movies, has been found hanged and half-naked in the wardrobe of a Bangkok hotel room, according to reports.

Published: 3:34PM BST 04 Jun 2009

The body of Carradine, 72, was discovered by a maid early on Thursday morning. He was in the Thai capital to shoot Stretch, his latest film.

A spokesman for the US Embassy confirmed that Carradine had died either late on Wednesday or early on Thursday, but said he could provide no further details.

Thai police told the BBC the 72-year-old was found by a hotel maid sitting in a wardrobe with a rope around his neck and genitals.

The local Bangkok newspaper, The Nation, cited unidentified police sources as saying Carradine was believed to have committed suicide and had hanged himself with a curtain cord in his suite at the Park Nai Lert Hotel.

He failed to join fellow cast and crew members for dinner on Wednesday night but they did not raise the alarm, believing that he was resting.

Carradine was a leading member of a venerable Hollywood acting family that included his father, character actor John Carradine, and brother Keith.

In all, he appeared in more than 100 feature films with such directors as Martin Scorsese, Ingmar Bergman and Hal Ashby.

But he was best known for his role as Kwai Chang Caine, a Shaolin priest traveling the 1800s American frontier West in the cult TV series Kung Fu, which aired in 1972-75.

He reprised the role in a mid-1980s TV movie and played Caine's grandson in the 1990s syndicated series Kung Fu: The Legend Continues.

He returned to the top in recent years as the title character in Quentin Tarantino's two-part saga Kill Bill.

I bought tygerlander this phone yesterday. She likes the new phone. Let's just wait on her to post on it. :P

Also thinking of getting a new computer, preferably a laptop. Something with a Linux OS on it, so I can learn my phone even better. Also in case my computer actually fucks up completely. I'm not saying it is, but I did have it for nearly six years.

02:45 am - 31st birthday swag

I didn't get much this year. Just a PS3, MK vs DCU, RE5, and MGS4. That's all I got. :P

Anyway, the wife and I were at Gamestop earlier today picking up above presents when she showed me a couple games she wanted. The problem was that they were for the PSP.

me: Do you want a PSP or not?
her: YES!

So two seconds after she buys me my PS3 and the games, I buy her a PSP and MK: Unchained (the only game she wanted that they had in stock).

Just wanted to swing by and post that.

09:33 am - An update

Last weekend, the wife and I were doing some rearranging/cleaning. I ended up slicing open my foot on Sunday. The wife said she could smell the iron in all the blood that was rushing out. All I did was put gauze on it and some medical tape and I went out to Lazarus that night (I wasn't going to let some injury distract me from one of the few times I go out). It's almost healed up now.

So now I'm working overtime before my birthday on Monday. I don't get much sleep these days for some odd reason.
