Jocular Look @ Today’s News || Pub owner hides deceased regular and keeps selling beer


Not only did Mark Howells suffer the indignity of dying in the toilet of a bar, he had the misfortune to pass away in a U.K. pub with an unsympathetic owner. When Jason Chidgey, 29, found the deceased Howells, 48, in his premises, he had the cleaner help him hide the body in a bedroom above the Boot Hotel in South Wales. Chidgey was concerned police would close down the pub to investigate the death and he’d lose the weekend booze bucks, so he organized for the body to be found the following Tuesday. The cleaner, however, was later overcome with guilt and confessed all. For hiding the body of Howells, who had died of natural causes related to alcohol poisoning, Chidgey was sentenced to 15 months imprisonment. [Source]

Mrmary Weighs IN

To die on the toilet is tough. I dont really wanna go on a toilet seat. When i die I want to die nude and laughing on top of a stripper dressed in a nuns outfit with a sign that says “forgive me Father” Sorry, Ive gotten freakier in my old age I suppose.

It’s a scumbag thing to do to hide this guy so you can keep selling beer. For more pubs and beer places the weekend is when you pull in a significant volume of your income so logically what he did in a strange way makes sense: hey he is dead anyway. But that’s the problem with logic it can be used to justify atrocities. But what I want to know is:

Will the 15 months in prison having your anus forcibly worn like a glove on a dry wintery day make it worth it.

I figure his bar is gonna loose a lot more money thna if he jsut called the cops in the first place.

What would Mrmary Do?

MrMary would do the following:

  1. If the patron was not black or hispanic I’d call my lawyer make a statement put down on paper my alibi
  2. Call the cops and stand outside against the wall spread out with my lawyer there with a camcorder recording the whole thing.
  3. Call up the family and offer my condolences
  4. Have a weekend of remembrance for the dude that died in the shitter. I would give discounted drinks and invite the officer/officers who came to the scene for free drink . Half off to anyone who was there that day 3-4 drink minimum 2 day
  5. I would turn that weekend of remembrance into a year drunken orgiastic feast for the senses – laced with scatological jokes and innuendo where we dress up and get drunk to honor plumbing market it to local colleges.
  6. I would have another day to celebrate  not getting prison raped.

See how that works out everyone happy :-)

Jocular Look @ Todays News || Ocotomom checks herself into rehab


Baby-popping celebrity Octomom, aka Nadya Suleman, has crashed into a drug rehab center in California. A rep says she has been abusing Xanax pills she takes for stress—a condition we’re going to guess came along somewhere between birthing 14 in vitro babies and makingmasturbation porn to pay for their care. She plans to be away from the kids for a month and, even though a source says her bourgeoning porn career could pay for treatment, she has taken the center up on its offer to foot the bill. [Source]

If I could ever boast of having 80 fingers inside me at the same time I wouldn’t be checking into rehab I would be checking into pep boys to have my fucking chassis repairs.  It is amazing you can be a celebrity for popping out babies, I want to be a celebrity but I am handicapped in that department because I can read and write and didn’t lease out a variety of my orifices to pay my way to college.

[Not that doing that is wrong, I feel if it makes you happy to have your anus or vagina a mini meat storage then by all mean use the free market to get you the best prices and whole sale napkin prices, you know the trickle down effect thing a lot of Republican keep talking about.]

Ok and masturbation porn, I would imagine it would take an odd number of  vaginoplasties greater than five to  turn that close range shot gun  wound back into a vagina. I think the real cause of her addiction and rehab is that all the Burger kings horses and all the kings men couldn’t sew her vagina back together again. It’s kind of what got her famous. She should have taken an insurance on it like J-LO did her ass. Maybe they can take some cartilage from her face and fat from her head to reconstruct it

Seriously

I was just being silly and fooling around. I hope the Octomom gets better and I hope her kids are faring well. Illness and addiction is a terrible thing and I think no one should have to deal with that alone. So here is to the OctoMom getting better quickly. I hope she also stops doing any kind of porn as well.

 

Reflections on Disney’s Recent Acquisition of LucasFilm (1)


Mass media exerts a powerful influence on our lives. There are many instances where the media’s stereotypical portrayal of certain people, places or things can influence whole demographics sometimes times for the betters other times more often than not for the worse. To give an example: The Yale Political Quarterly published an article by Stephen Balkaran called “Mass Media and Racism. His opens his article with the following words:

Mass media have played and will continue to play a crucial role in the way white Americans perceive African-Americans. As a result of the overwhelming media focus on crime, drug use, gang violence, and other forms of anti-social behavior among African-Americans, the media have fostered a distorted and pernicious public perception of African-Americans. The history of African-Americans is a centuries old struggle against oppression and discrimination. The media have played a key role in perpetuating the effects of this historical oppression and in contributing to African-Americans’ continuing status as second-class citizens.

With that said I have been thinking about Walt Disney‘s acquisition of many iconic companies: Marvel Comics, Pixar and most recently LucasFilms. To me this acquisition paints a very scary prospect.

More Reflections on Mass Media

As it stands now five major companies (Time Warner, VIACOM, Vivendi Universal, Walt Disney and News Corp) own about 95% of all mass media including theme parks, movie studios, television and radio broadcast networks and programming, video news, sports entertainment, telecommunications, wireless phones, video games software, electronic media and music companies. What we see everyday through the media channels doesn’t happen by accident. There are board rooms plastered with statistics telling compiled for the record executives telling them what is “in”, telling them what is popular and ultimately what will make them the most money.

I often ask myself what fraction of what I perceive and how I act a product of the constant and nearly ubiquitous subliminal advertising of mass media? How many real moments are there today – now before we receive any information, it is teased, shaped and presented to us a certain way. How the media choses to report on the news as the recent Presidential debates illustrated is just as important and in some cases maybe more important than the debates themselves. Jean Baudrillard in describing the current post-modern state has said:

“The real is produced from miniaturized cells, matrices, and memory banks, models of control — and it can be reproduced an indefinite number of times from these. It no longer needs to be rational, because it no longer measures itself against either an ideal or negative instance. It is no longer anything but operational.”

This means that at some point in the past there were real moments and they happened when people “real” moment occurred when:

  1. A person experienced another person’s presence and speech, or
  2. Observed something that was happening in the neighborhood or across the street.

Today what we experience belongs increasing, almost asymptotically, to borrow a term from mathematics, falls under the realm  spectacles, images, symbols, signs.  We have become really dependent on technology. For many people I know it would be very stressful to not have access to TV, Internet, lap-top or personal computer, radio, tablet, smart phone.  I think for many of us myself included without this we would feel cut off and disconnected which is ironic. I say it is ironic because there is still life outside of technology. How many of the 6 billion people in the world have access to the internet and smart phones and tablets etc? Yeah they don’t feel divorced from life or living. While technology can open humanity up to new unexplored worlds and experiences it can be a tool of oppression and disenfranchisement.

But it is important to realize that technology carries with it culture. Langdon Winner has illustrated in his writings that as technology becomes more and more woven into the texture of everyday existence the device, techniques and systems we adopt shed their tool like qualities to become part of humanity. The very act of using the kinds of machines, techniques, and systems available to use generates patterns of activities and expectations that soon become “second nature”. I remember the philosopher Karl Jaspers had a fear that we were inching closer towards a technocracy which meant for him that human beings were gradually being reduced to tools of scientific or ideological goals. Sometimes I wonder if this to an extent hasn’t already happened?

” as we compare our own mind and operation of a computer, we acknowledge  that an understanding of technical devices has somehow merged with the most intimate level of self-understanding.”

Disney

When Disney comes up I think of

The crows in Dumbo,(Get the Jim CROW reference)


Dumbo is a 1941 American animated film produced by Walt Disney and released on October 23, 1941

_____________________________

Uncle Remus


Walt Disney‘s Song of the South, released in 1946. The film was a combination of live action and animation

_____________________________

There are many Disney Heroines who have no mother and are raised by father alone. There are the native Americans depicted in an stereotypical way in Peter Pan.  King Louie in the Jungle Book, a book written by Kipling, the same author who wrote the White Man’s burden. Finally who can forget the barbaric portrayal of “Agraba” in Aladin: “Where they cut off your ear if they don’t like your face, it’s barbaric but hey it’s home” I wonder what this all means for us as a nation that supposed to be a cultural melting pot, I wonder what I means for our democracy.

I have more to say but I’m sleepy, cya tomorrow
