Trying to understand it all.

Fitna – You tell me

 

“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….

Two Parts (I’m posting the English version, as opposed to the Dutch version)

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.

You are now getting sleepy…

“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.”

hello everyone!

dfosmoke.jpg
Hello everyone. It’s me… Dumbfoundedone. It’s been a while since I have written anything of interest. When I started this blog, I figured that I would be writing interesting stories, comments and whatnot daily. As it is, my blog has become a way for me to show YouTube videos that I find to be of interest. As much as I enjoy doing this, I promise that this site will become more interesting. As soon as I get my 4000th hit, I will be changing the layout and content of this site. As of now, I’m sitting at 3800 hits and I figure that within the next couple of days, the change will be made.
So… stay tuned for the changes. I hope you’re looking forward to it as much as I am.

Most Iconic Album Cover

joy_division_unknown.jpg

Music fans have voted Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures as the most iconic album cover of all time.

The black and white pulses design by artist Peter Saville topped a poll of British bands that included the Beatles, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd.

The cover of Joy Division’s debut album, released on the late Tony Wilson’s Manchester-based Factory label in 1979, represents 100 pulses from a collapsing star.

The image was found in the Cambridge Encyclopaedia of Astronomy by the band’s guitarist Bernard Sumner.

Bass player Peter Hook told the Daily Mirror: “We weren’t interested in being on the cover – we wanted to do things in a different way.”

Unknown Pleasures took the top spot over fellow Manchester band The Stone Roses for their 1989 eponymous debut.

The Beatles’ Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band from 1967 came in third.

Others in the top 10 include The Smiths Meat Is Murder and Led Zeppelin’s Houses of the Holy.

Aside from Unknown Pleasures, Saville also designed album and single covers for a host of Factory label artists, including James and New Order.

Joy Division disbanded in 1980 after singer Ian Curtis’s suicide but have been credited as one of the most influential UK groups of the past 30 years.

The poll was conducted by budget music retail site MusicMagpie.co.uk.

The firm’s boss Steve Oliver said: “It’s so much more stylish for people to show off their cool CDs rather than as digital downloads.”

Top 10 Most Iconic Covers:
1. Joy Division – Unknown Pleasures
2. The Stone Roses – The Stone Roses
3. The Beatles – Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
4. The Smiths – Meat is Murder
5. Led Zeppelin – Houses of the Holy
6. The Beatles – Abbey Road
7. Pink Floyd – The Dark Side of the Moon
8. David Bowie – The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust
9. Paul Weller – Stanley Road
10. Sex Pistols – Never Mind the B*****ks

It’s my time…

clarity.jpg
Tonight, I had my moment of clarity. I won’t go into details, but something happened tonight that made me realize something. I’m not alone. Sobriety isn’t such a bad thing. My life without alcohol is 1000% better than with it.  There are also people out there that I would have NEVER suspected of suffering from the same disease as I.
Man… this may be easier than I thought (ok, not that easy…).

My new iTouch… I’m an idiot.

itouch.jpg

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!

Improv Everywhere

There’s a group in the U.S. (New York) called Improve Everywhere. As their site states, “Improv Everywhere causes scenes of chaos and joy in public places. Created in August of 2001 by Charlie Todd, Improv Everywhere has executed over 70 missions involving thousands of undercover agents.”

This is one of their “missions” entitled “suicide jumper”.

Favorite 80’s videos – #1

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.

Favorite 80’s videos – #2

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.

Favorite 80’s videos – #3

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!

Great blog – Stuff White People Like

bill_gates.jpg

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.

Favorite 80’s videos- #4

#4 brings us to the Grandmaster! This is the song that “broke” hip hop and rap. Most people say Sugarhill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight” was the first “mainstream” hit for hip hop, I disagree. This is Grandmaster Flash And The Furious Five with “The Message”.

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.

Day 6

So far…

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.

Day 5 – Part 2

birthofbabycamel5.jpg

fart.jpg

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.

Day 5

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.
