“THE HAGUE (AFP) – An Internet site said Saturday it had removed anti-Islam film “Fitna” by far-right Dutch MP Geert Wilders after receiving threats to its staff amid protests by Muslim nations and the UN chief. The Britain-based Liveleak.com said it pulled down the video, which can still be seen on other websites, including youtube.com. The film was posted to the Internet on Thursday. “Following threats to our staff of a very serious nature, and some ill informed reports from certain corners of the British media that could directly lead to the harm of some of our staff, Liveleak.com has been left with no other choice but to remove ‘Fitna’ from our servers,” the site said in a statement. “Fitna” features violent imagery of terror attacks in New York and Madrid intertwined with Koranic texts.
In an interview with AFP on Friday, Wilders rejected responsibility for any retaliation against Dutch nationals or interests abroad. “I hope it doesn’t happen but even if it does the people who commit such acts are responsible, not me,” he said, pointing to a quiet first night in the Netherlands. Fearing a repeat of violent clashes that followed the publication in 2005 of cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed in Danish newspapers, the Dutch government has distanced itself from Wilders’ film and Islamic leaders there have called for calm. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Friday joined Muslim nations in expressing outrage over the film. Ban called Wilders’ film offensive while Iran and Bangladesh warned it could have grave consequences and Pakistan protested to the Dutch ambassador.”
Pulled video……. (a thank you)
Fitna…. the video….

Keep in mind, even though I have my own opinions on this subject, I am not passing judgment on a people as a whole. Just as I don’t believe that all Americans are represented by George Bush Jr.
I have to say. I am happier than a pig in shit right now.
I’m in bed listening to Pink Floyd, writing this on my itouch. Man, you have to love technology.

“Italian police have issued CCTV pictures of a man who appears to hypnotise a supermarket cashier before stealing money from her till.
According to reports from the Italian news agency, Ansa, the man asked the cashier to change a 100 euro note and as soon as the till was opened he proceeded to hypnotise her into handing over money…
When the cashier came to count the till money at the end of her shift, £600 was missing.
“It was very strange,” she said.”

Ok, so I bought an iTouch on Saturday. Due to Apple screwing up my computer with a faulty update of iTunes, I had to reformat my computer, reinstall iTunes, blah, blah, blah. Anyway, it was Sunday afternoon before I could use my new purchase and I was ecstatic! What a wonderful new toy I had. Wait… what’s this? A suck ass battery life? I knew the iPhones were horrible on battery life, but I never expected the iTouch to suffer the same problem. It’s now Wednesday and as of this evening (after charging all last night), I’m down to 10% life left. And I worked 10 hours today! It’s not like I played it at all today. This sucks… wait, what’s that Patrick? huh? You mean that “locking it” doesn’t mean it’s turned off? That button on the top left side will turn it off completely? Wow, I didn’t see that.
You know… for being on for 3 days straight, the iTouch has GREAT battery life!
Here it is! Morrissey’s “Every Day Is Like Sunday”. Even though Morrissey is barely in the video, this (in my opinion) is the best of the 80’s. It seemed like every girl in my high-school had the same haircut as the girl in the video. Not to mention, any video with the Golden Girls rejects in it has to be cool.
It’s also my favorite song of the 80s.
Ok, this is THE song for me. This song got me ready for the grunge movement of the early 90’s. “Epic” by Faith No More was released in 1989 and changed the way I looked at music. The Soundtrack to the movie “Judgement Night” finished me off for good.
Laugh all you want, ABC’s “The Look Of Love” is my 3rd favorite video from the 80s. Corny, cheesy and just plain wrong. Yet, I love it. Corny, cheesy and just plain wrong sums up the 80s anyway. So enjoy it.
I SAID ENJOY IT!
My buddy Marcus sent me a link to a great blog. It’s called “Stuff White People Like“. It’s actually really well done (and no, not offensive… you know me).
As a side note, I am in attempt to stop using the word “actually”.
As for my Oddest thing I said today
“Fuck the wheel, coffee is the best invention ever”
Has anyone ever noticed what my top post of all time is? I swear, it’s weird. When people end up on one of my pages using a search engine (like Google, MSN, yahoo), I can see what they entered that took them to the certain page. “dog penis” is the most common search term that get people here. Today alone, these are the search terms.

I better not be under investigation by CSIS or the FBI for promoting pictures of dog penises. Oh shit! Just by putting those words together will garner me more hits…. I have to stop.
Ok, for the next 5 days, I’m going to be counting down my Top 5 Music Videos from the 80s. Why? BECAUSE I CAN!
Today, we start off with Stephen Tin Tin Duffy’s “Kiss Me”. Stephen was an original member of Duran Duran until he punched one of the other guys in the face.
Shit… I didn’t even notice my 3000th hit three days ago.
Well, in baseball, it’s a big deal. And to me it is too. Thanks peeps.
I’m re-vamping the site this week, so check back and check out the new digs.
2 bananas, a bowl of cereal, an egg omelet, and 2 eight inch subs. And it’s only 3:30pm.
I leave here tomorrow morning after I meet with a councilor to map out my future.
I watched the movie “Heathers” for the 40th time in my life, today. It was great! No-one liked it, so I got the TV room to myself.
I aired out my room today so that I could sleep without it smelling like a Rolling Stones concert.
I can NOT get over the outpouring of support from my friends and family as I go through this VERY difficult time. People from high-school, middle school (thanks Sarah), friends, family and most of all my wife.
My appetite is becoming that of legend here. I not only have a stamp on my nametag that says I get second helpings of everything, I sweet talked the millitant, bitter German woman behind the counter and she now gives me thirds if I want.
The lack of meds today has been ok. My shaking returned for a little bit this afternoon, but I was able to get all three helpings of Shepards Pie into me. Along with two bagels, two bowls of cereal, a rice crispy square, 4 boiled eggs, two turkey cutlets, 4 oatmeal cookies, a bowl of soup, an egg salad sandwich, rice pudding and a bowl of ice cream. I usually beg the nursing station for another sandwich around 11pm, so add that to the mix.
You may have noticed all the egg products. My room smells like it has a sulpher spring right in the middle of the floor. Or, as someone else put it “it smells like a camel gave birth in your room”.
With all the food and smoking I’ve been doing, I woke up feeling like Bob Dylan slept in my mouth.
Security is closing this room….. gotta go.
Well, my meds are finaly done and I’m now on a regular dose of coffee. It’s the weekend, so nothing much going on here.
I’m ok. No cravings yet though… thank god.
I miss my wife.
