Tumblr.

Fuck, I’m thinking about getting one/am so getting one.

I hate being a follower, but they just make sense.

I’ll probably keep this one for my more ranty stuff.

Itty Bitty Kitty Commitee Photo Shoot

So this will be quite possibly my lamest post ever. I had some kittens over the other night to sleep over and the next morning I took a couple of videos and entirely too many photos of them all playing together.

Vicious killer kitty instinct.

When people tell me taking pictures of cats is an unmanly thing to do, I show them this one.

There were four of them, and they are definitely much rowdier than the other kittens that have come through, but it was awesome to have for one night. Hopefully there will be another sleepover soon.

If I feel so inclined, I may very well change one or two of these into a lolcat. I think the best one for it is the next picture…

This is clearly aching to be a lolcat.

Anyways, I don’t want to boggle your browsers down with the other pictures or two videos but I’ll post all that after the break: (more…)

The Collegiate Destruction of “The First Kiss”

When you think “college”, what is the first thing that comes to mind? While I hope for many that the thought may include change, hope, education, or higher learning I have an inkling it’s probably not the case. Parties, booze, drug and sex experimentation.

O.K., so I’m exaggerating. Still, the fact stands that partying is strongly associated with college life. I need to start off by saying that I have absolutely no problem with that fact. I love partying, and if you do it responsibly (and occasionally irresponsibly) it can be great. With the right group of people, by drinking just the perfect amount, and by having a good environment partying is heaven sent. It can create some great memories, you can meet new people, and you can even reunite with old friends.

My qualm, however, is that partying can create a very specific culture. Many college parties are not what I described. They are filled with strangers, people you wish would stay strangers, so much booze you puke, and cramped areas. I mean look up the words “college party” on google. You see loads of booze, sloppy people, and girls in precarious positions.

One example. For some reason I feel like this breast bite may have included alcohol.

While I am largely a fan of both booze and women the “typical college party” atmosphere can be a dangerous combination. There are very obvious and serious reasons for this, as well as more light-hearted ones which involve comically bad kisses, or throw up. But for the sake of brevity I’m going to ignore these many faults, and look at one specific problem: College Parties murdering Romance.

Cat Related Entertainment

For quite some time now I have been finding myself hysterical when it comes to a good cat joke. I don’t know what it is, but they get me every time. While I know some people may not share my particular affinity for them, anyone who has ever owned a cat will find this hilarious:

This is one of many ways to know if your cat is preparing to kill you.

To read the rest click on the picture, or go to this website. At the bottom of the page are other hilarious links that have a simmiliar type of humor (albeit without relation to cats).

If I had to guess, I would have to say LOL Cats brought back cat humor to its former glory. OK, so maybe it never had former glory, but LOL Cats are still fantastic. Another great source for cat humors return has been “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia”. Allow me to give you some examples:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Agent Jack Bauer, a Junkyard Cat born in puddles of gasoline. He is one BAMF, and I don’t use that term often. However there aren’t many cats out there who can survive an explosion like Jack can.

Dear Everyone,

STOP! This is real life, and it’s really happening. I promise.

You can’t pretend like there is something else that is guaranteed to happen. There might not be a tomorrow, there might not be “someday” and there most certainly might not be something after this life. That being said, live today. What i’m saying is: don’t keep on convincing yourself “someday” you’ll learn that instrument. “Someday” you two will be together. Tomorrow you’ll start that book you’ve always wanted to write. Do it. There isn’t enough certainty in life not to. When you’re sitting there thinking “this is ok for now” or “I’m really just not ready for -blank-” you have to realize that you are not working towards another goal, you are accepting the fact that you may never get what you want and will only have yourself to blame.

I’m as guilty as anyone else. I am a huge procrastinator and miss out on a lot. Yet at the same time I can say when it really matters I won’t have to wonder. When I really know that I want or need something in my life I will go for it with every fiber of my being. If I died today I could tell you I have lived a life chasing after exactly what I truly want. I have lived my life with passion. My biggest goals in life are to find lasting love, and to really make a difference. I’m currently in college studying to be a teacher and sociologist so I truly believe i’m on my way to making a difference. As for love, I can’t say I regret much. I had a long fulfilling relationship with a beautiful girl that, although was hard and ended on poor terms, taught me a lot about who I am. About my problems and weaknesses, and about my strengths. But most importantly, made me happy. After that I messed up on another chance for love, but can say conclusively I don’t regret it. I wasn’t ready, and did some stupid things, but once I knew how I felt, and knew I could return all the feelings I was receiving, I went for it. It was hopeless, and I still tried. For six months. It was one of the most painful and hard times in my life. Yet, I’ll never have to wonder what if. I’ll never have to say “what if I didn’t give it my all?” or “what if i had tried -blank-?” And that feeling is one I wouldn’t trade for anything.

Regardless, what I want people to take from this is don’t settle. Or if you do decide to settle don’t fool yourself into thinking you have enough time to unsettle. Maybe it’s morbid to think that every day could be your last, or maybe it’s foolish to advise you to go out on a limb and truly reach for what you want. But maybe it’s the only sensible way to live. Settling won’t bring you the immense sorrow failure will, so you’ll protect yourself. Personally though, for all the failures my passion has brought me, I’ve experienced so much. Someday when i’m a father, or a teacher, or a sociologist, or all three, or none I’ll be able to look myself in the mirror and smile.

Do yourself a favor and start working towards one thing you’ve always been too afraid to do. If that means putting $20 bucks from the next paycheck in the bank to save up for your own place, so be it. If that means finally asking that girl out, or letting “the boy who got away” know you’re not ready to give up, do it.

Nowadays most people die of a sort of creeping common sense, and discover when it is too late that the only things one never regrets are one’s mistakes” -Oscar Wilde

Me and a friend got tattoos together a while back. Well always live as if were dying. Just a reminder to always go after what you want.

Romantic Gestures and Christmas Sweaters

This year I will be making the Holidays extreme.

This year I will be making the Holidays extreme.

Although I know the whole “Bad Christmas Sweater” thing is coming to the end of its H.A.P. (Hipster Approval Period – There are newspaper articles about the phenomenon so it’s just not underground enough anymore) I still very much enjoy it, and hopefully will for years to come.

As for Romantic Gestures it had near or approximate rhyme with sweaters, and it’s a subject I want to tackle so I figured “Why not?”

Read on to hear all about my complaints over the lack of Hanukkah and Kwanzaa sweaters as well as Ron Burgundy themed romantic gestures…

***EDIT***

OH MY GOD! Me and my friend Tal were just looking at various sweaters and I realized that there is a secret google easter egg! Basically if you type in either “christmas sweaters” or “hanukkah sweaters” or “Kwanzaa Sweaters” into google (Make sure you have those exact words spelled correctly undercased and that the word sweater has an s on the end) then you will get these results!

You have to click on these images and click again on the next page to see them.

VOTE. You get free stuff!

So people can give you loads of reasons to vote. Millions of people have died through the centuries just so they could have their freedom and voices heard. Or if you don’t vote you can’t complain about the president. Or why not? But forget all that, I’m not here to preach a whole “holier-than-thou” feeling you may receive from voting. I want to show you tangible, and oftentimes delicious, rewards of voting. Read more if you want to know why voting will not only help your nation, but actually help your wallet.

Although dunkin donuts is not giving away something free, krispy kreme is.

Dating and Pogs, things that are frustrating if not done right.

So recently I’ve been reevaluating my stance on some things. Mainly dating and Pogs; allow me to elaborate.

Clearly these kids know about pogs and dating.

“The hammer’s my penis.”

For anyone who doesn’t know there is a little web diddy that came out during the writer’s strike called Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog. And since I am taking the name of my blog from said show I feel the need to promote it. On top of that some who already may be fans may not know of the webcomic released about the hero everyone loves to hate:

Captain Hammer!

Captain Hammer!

Well if you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend it. Word on the streets is that the next one will be about Dr. Horrible’s evil henchman Moist! (Moist: Humidity Rising) And probably even better news is that the third comic is likely to be about Fake Thomas Jefferson.

It’s 5 am…shit.
