Real news here, whistleblower Edward Snowden has been nominated for a Nobel Piece Prize, the same guy who was considered a terrorist by republicans and stupid people. Anyone remember ‘Dog The Bounty Hunter?’ Well if you do, this idiot was going to travel to Russia (where he has no power or jurisdiction and where Snowden resides) and take him back to ‘Murica. Snowden has political asylum in Russia, I’m not sure about the rules and regulations for political asylum but if someone is given asylum, is it illegal for them to be taken to their country by an outside person, especially one who doesn’t have jurisdiction? Anyhow Snowden may get an award along with peacekeepers, scientists and literature writers who help the world advance (most of the time); if he doesn’t win then at least he was nominated which is the farthest anyone will get. All the republicans, corrupt militants and stupid people are crying in their sleep as of now.
“Robble robbble robble! I don’t like this! Robble robble robble robble.” Says all of America’s stupid people.
In the same topic of politics, I watched ‘Independent Lens’ on PBS this Monday and it dealt with the issue of Illegal Immigration in Arizona and the stupidest law I’ve ever heard of, the SB-1070 law which in summary is “If we think you look like an illegal immigrant, we’re going to deport you.” This is quite an interesting documentary on Independent Lens called ‘The State of Arizona’ done by Carlos Sandoval and Catherine Tambini and they do a good job not only capturing the Latino side but also capturing the side of those who approve of the 1070 law. It’s quite a documentary that makes you think and it’s perfectly done well with interviews and it has footage of police abusing their power against an immigrant on camera. These anti-immigrant people are a bunch of idiots, claiming they aren’t racist but don’t like the way Mexican immigrants change their neighborhoods. If you are anti-illegal immigrant then shouldn’t you hate all illegal immigrants from the latin nations to the Asian and European nations?? I agree that the majority of illegal immigrants are Mexican, but the way they phrased their protest chants ‘Mexicans go back to Mexico’ sounds pretty racist because you’re targeting one demographic in an issue that doesn’t and shouldn’t affect only one race. In the 80’s there was the issue of illegal immigration from the Cubans in the eastern part of the U.S as well as the Chinese; my point is Illegal immigration deals with anyone from everywhere who enters the U.S illegally, not just Mexicans you pieces of conformist shit.
Change of pace here, change course, set sail for a new topic here. I’m not a Superbowl guy, I don’t follow nor do I even play football physically nor do I play the videogames but I sorta, kinda, sometimes, not really but do like the commercials. Yes, it’s a time when the corporations take advantage of you and SELL SELL SELL the living guts out of you but they do make a good advertisement, most of the time. Half the time these adverts are 30 seconds of people being dicks and passing it off as comedy. In the science of comedy at times you can make unlikable people funny (like the people in ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’) but in the case of these adverts it’s full of unlikable people who aren’t remotely funny (like Pauley Shore in every comedy film he’s been on) who think they‘re hilarious. You had that one ‘Doritos’ commercial where a dude fakes his death and accomplishes his wish (to be buried in a coffin embellished in Doritos chips and a small T.V watching a football game) while his family and girlfriend cry their guts out, bordering on suicide and questioning why death exists. Of course the advert ends with the coffin collapsing and the funeral attendees finding out the guy is alive. Another advert I’d like to mention is from ‘Zoom.com’ which is a money transaction service, on the web! So this commercial has a couple enjoying a day at the park with their children when suddenly the husband receives a call from his mother saying she needs money. He needs to get to a money wiring place so he hops onto a girl’s bycicle and rides to this place. As the husband travels tirelessly in a girl’s bycicle, his wife just pops up her Ipod and wires her inlaw the money using her Ipod as simple and quick, then her husband finds that the wiring station is closed. Then there’s a final shot where the husband sits next to his wife as he’s dirty and famished while his wife says “Next time use Zoom.com.” like a freaking wiseass. NO FUCKING SHIT WOMAN!! She could have said that before her husband freaked out, that’s dickish there, that’s a sociopath prank there. I swear if I had a wife and she pulled that type of crap, I would’ve made a quick judgement for divorce. WHO’S LAUGHING NOW BITCH, NEXT TIME BE NICE.COM! Overall, my point is why is dickish behavior a selling point & why are they trying too hard to make the viewer laugh? Most of the time the humor displayed in the adverts is either too corny or so unfunny it makes you pee out of anger. If you watch adverts from the 90’s and below, you’ll see that they either used imagination or the product itself to engage you in buying. Now the Japanese, they still follow their ‘code of advertising it weirdly’ to lure sales and I LOVE IT! I love foreign adverts because they seem to be the only people with a sense of selling the product, a perfect sense of art along with intelligent humor and it’s a cool look at another culture.
So enjoy your superbowl if you’re a sports person, if not then enjoy a book or a movie or whatever.
And a bye bye to in all those other people who speak other languages who read my material and like it.
I don’t get money for this site so I pretty much do this for the art and I feel ten times happier knowing someone enjoys my blogababble or my ‘Adventures In Pancakes’ comic strip.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to listen to some ‘Cocteau Twins’.
