Yeah Jack is a gay rod, but there is more than just that going on in this photo. Ann is excited and curious. Killian is angry, but also curious. Jack is curious and pedantic in this photo. Can't you see him in his "I think I'm better than you" crouch. He is passionate, violent, sophisticated, supercilious and vehement.

But What Is Brian Thinking?

The day is Tuesday

The days are getting longer and sunnier and i am getting excited for some nice weather to facilitate some outdoor activities.

Well since this blog seems to be about anything, let me tell you about my weekend:

It was all around uneventful. Jack had birthday party at a restaurant (it's my belief that birthday parties belong in houses) and it was delightful. Jack gave the restaurant 3 stars on yelp. Was it deserving? Only god knows for sure, but i'd probably give it 4 stars because it is what it is and GOD would want it that way.

I've decided to put a signature mark on my email, so those recipients in my life will know the real me. What's your thought on email signatures? I think it's a neat idea but i'd rather put an html image tag in there and have a funny picture be my signature:

...which you can't do in gmail.

Went to Santa Rosa on Saturday...
it was boring. There is something about Santa Rosa being fun when friends are in town, but when it's just you and hanging out in your parent's house, it can be pretty boring. So i was thinking of starting a business where you can rent a group of friends to hang out with in your hometown. I'll start in Santa Rosa, but perhaps the idea can take off nationally. Next stop Rohnert Park, Windsor and potentially Fulton.

Sunday, Dolores Park. What a cluster fuck of my generation. I don't think my generation will bring much change to society.

Hey look everyone, Jack is a gay rod:

Upset your Apple Cart?

There are sayings that you learn when you are growing up that you just learn to say phonetically and after a few years of just saying a phrase, you stop and think about the phrase and question what the fuck does that mean?

My mom says shit like that all the time and i've figured out when to use the phrase, but i'm left clueless as to what it actually means.

"I didn't want to upset your apple cart"

My mom says this when she sarcastically implies that she cares about my complaining.

Kill: Mom, why are we inviting those nazis to dinner?
Mom: Oh, i'm so sorry i did that, i forgot how important every dinner is for you, "I didn't want to upset your apple cart."

Now, my mom could be saying something totally different and my fucked up four year old mind translated it this way and has stuck that way ever since. Or it could be that everyone can plainly see the apple cart is a symbol of my subconscious desires and ego and all that psycho babble and is metaphorically represented through simple things that common folk can understand: apple carts.

Here is a reference to the saying...i think

My dad also does something similar, but i am positive it's not part of common culture

When my mom says something nagging to my father he'll mock her by squawking like a parrot, whistling like a parrot and repeating the same thing.

Mom: "Jesse, it's been months since you've cleaned the garage."
Dad: " Jesss, it's been months since you've cleaned the garage, RRRARRRR, TWEET TWEET,"

He'll also flap his arms like wings to make his point.

What does this really mean? I get that it's mocking in nature, but essentially he is calling my mom a parrot? Are parrots nagging creatures? Not really. It might be that my dad feels like a "pet" that has to perform tricks for my mom. That makes a little sense. Hmmm, maybe i just figured this one out.

There are a ton other phrases that i can't think of, but i'm sure there are some you can think of
; )

I thought that was funny. Anyone no how to post pics without getting them cut off?

Well, I have returned from a vacation in New Orleans, which you may not have known if this blog was the only window into my life. But for some reason i bet you knew. Fun was had, more updates on that later.
Today is bagel Thursday at my work. I had a raisin bagel with reduced fat plain cream cheese. I only had a $20 bill in my wallet so i did not spend the $1.25 on orange juice. Coffee is free, so i drank that and i'm getting ready to poo.
Speaking of poo, i am getting back on my "pooing at work in the morning schedule." I have trained myself to poo only at work and not waste precious leisure time at home pooing in my toilet there. Of course on weekends i like to poo at home. Making the trip to work merely to poo there on a saturday morning sounds like a burden and silly ninnery.

Anyways, couple of links of interest. Well just one for now:


awesome animation from the 1970's

It was a collaboration between French and Czechoslovakian animators. It's psychedelic, sexual and violent. The music is amazing, and the animation is very still, not too kinetic, possessing qualities a future flash animator like myself can study. The music is awesome! Best of all, the movie is available in 9 parts on YouTube.


I'll assume a hero like you will know how to fish for the other 8 parts. Let me know if you want the soundtrack.

Garfield minus Garfiled

All the blogs are wet with "Garfield Minus Garfield" http://garfieldminusgarfield.tumblr.com/. I am also wet for it. Garfield the cat is erased from all the comic strips and Jon Arbuckle becomes a pathetic, lost soul.

I like this one:

and this one:

The weekend will be sweet with the juices that runneth from the loin of GOD.
