Open Letter

Dear Firefox users,

Just because you use a web browser that was not packaged with Windows, does not mean you are some sort of super-original computer underground elite member. In addition, it does not suddenly validate your opinion on any thing technology related. Firefox is only marginally better than Internet Explorer. Stop writing user reviews on CNET; you don't know anything.

Fuck,

Doraemon - Cat Robot

A cat *and* a robot??  Could this cartoon character *be* anymore perfect for me?
Unlikely.  
I plan on purchasing Doraemon-related merchandise from the 7-11 on the corner.  I also plan on filling a suitcase with Doraemon products before moving back to civilization.  This cartoon is all my future children will know.

Why did you date him if you didn't want to??  I received a phone call where he cried and asked me out.  Please note: at this time I was not completely heartless, and he cried.
5. Going to a counselor with my best friend's boyfriend to discuss my best friend's most recent self-inflicted 'cuts' on her arm.  Drama.

5 things on my to do list today:

1. Try not to piss off a very sick and thus very grumpy Matt.
2. 40 minutes of yoga.

1. Long green beans (raw--seriously)
2. Dark Chocolate
3. Pistachio nuts
4. Popcorn
5. Oreos!

5 things I would do if I was a millionaire :

1. Go to school until I had completed every class offered for all topics of even a vague interest to me.
2. Visit every country not currently in a state of civil war.

A Few More Reasons To Love Chuck (get on the bandwagon, I'm driving and have been for the last 10 years)

I've been enjoying yet another of Chuck Palahniuk's genius literary works. This novel, Rant, is fantastic, as I've come to expect from this author. Here are some of my favorite, and I think, epic quotes.

*

Everybody wanting the same mass-marketed crap. Saying it's for their kid, but really it's not. All these fat, middle-aged dumbshits just want something to kill time. Nothing dark and edgy or challenging. Nothing artsy.
Just so long as it's got a happy ending.
A love story strained through somebody's rose-coloured brain.

*


A drunk driver doesn't care that you've been painting for years and your first gallery show opens next week. How bogus is that? The fifteen-hundred-pound elk, the one standing in the shadows at the edge of the road, ready to jump, it has no idea that our baby is due next week.
The greasy brake lining or the cell phone talker...
The loose lug nuts or drowsy truck driver...
It doesn't matter for crap that you've got three years of sobriety or that you finally look good in a two-piece bathing suit or you've met that perfect someone and you've fallen deeply, wildly, passionately in love. Today, as you pick up your dry cleaning, fax those reports, fold your laundry or wash the dinner dishes, something you'd never expect is already stalking you.

*

Everyone wants to feel special--attain a special status among their peers--but not too special. Most kids only want to be special the same way their friends are special.

*

Uplifting? Not really. Intelligent? Extremely.

Engrish at last!

The 8th grade students at the school were given a questionnaire with the question:
"Where do you see yourself in 10 years?"

One child decided to use their obviously stunning knowledge of definite articles and answered:

"In 10 years, I will live in the Big house."
Subtleties impossible to teach.

This kid also was going to "the university" in "the London" and traveling to "the New York".

When in doubt, add articles.

On Buddhism

I'd be Buddhist if it were more bare bones Philosophy and you didn't have to do as much stuff, but I really like this quote:

Believe nothing,
no matter where you read it
or who has said it;
not even if I have said it,
unless it agrees with your own reason
and your own common sense. --Buddha


So I'm completely on board with this, except that they're always giving his statue like water and Fanta (the red one, not even orange), and lighting up incense and shit, plus they always have to buy fresh flower necklaces for him and go to like 9 temples every Sunday.
The statues are way too high maintenance and that's a lot of time spent on Sundays.
But if I could be Buddhist and only be required to recite that quote, I totally would.

Engrish to the max

At the tattoo shop in Hanoi, Matt was given this after-care instruction set:
To make a perfect tattoo:
1. After tattood, this skin are very vulerable so that you absoluted touch with water at least 24 hour, don't used soap at least a week, don't let it under direct sunshine at least a month.
2. You should to rub a thin cream Vaseline or Tetracyclin 1% after each bath and before sleeping.
3. A void in eating.
- Seafood: prawn, crab, fish... (About earlier 5 days)
- Chicken, food made from rice... (About earlier 7 days)
- Alcaho (4 days)
- Eggs (7 days)
After a month, you should comeback to check and edit in case if tattoo wasn't pell off good, maybe loses tattoo line by scratch or friction. Skined tattoo like an infury. It need to keep clear and take care.
Status like diabble, remove dable, recreare a new skin. They are fine. It really come back a usual after one to two months depend on each ones physiolgica. So don't worry about it.
Alarming when the skined tattoo was blister and burruing pain or beak out. If you have got a sensitive skin, it's very easy allergic with tattoo ink. Please call us to get a helpful.
Finaly, consider carefully before decid. Tattoo will follow you all life. It maybe make you pain or wasting your time, your money to deleting, even make allergic by tattoo ink with sensitive skin.

To love your body.

Who does Fall Out Boy think they are?



The only thing I will give this to its credit is John Mayer's guitar solo. And that's only because I love him, and even find it hard to believe he would allow his name to be tied to this piece of garbage.

Now, onto the issues I have with this abomination.
I would like to know who let this happen, first of all. And even if they were allowed to, how could Fall Out Boy ever think that they were even close enough to being musicians to remake a song by Michael fucking Jackson? They have some fucking nerve.

Maybe they thought if they include enough cameos and "tributes" to Michael, it somehow legitimizes this situation. But it does not. There is nothing okay about being a shitty pop-punk band and covering the music of the greatest pop artist in history. I just know that there are going to be a million scene emo kids running around "That new Fall Out Boy song is sooooo good" or "The Fall Out Boy one is even better than the original" if they know it's a remake.

Now I know how my parents feel.

Unclean

I just got home from taking in my payable recycling and no matter how many times I wash my hands, I fear I will never truly be clean.

I'd just like to ask one thing:

Do clean/decent people recycle?


The sampling of most Sarcan customers would dictate that no, they do not. Only society's under-acheivers and least hygienic individuals go to the recycling depot.

I'm going for a shower.

I'm hating on a lot of people lately, so I'd like to also talk about something I love.

The Lonely Island. They're totally Ka-blamo.







I know I'm not the only one...

I'm starting to really hate Microsoft.

This Yahoo situation has really been the cherry on top of an already pretty substantial-sized sundae of scorn.


"Could the acquisition of Yahoo! allow Microsoft -- despite its legacy of
serious legal and regulatory offenses -- to extend unfair practices from
browsers and operating systems to the Internet?"



Think about it...
I know a few people who would be a little upset if they tried to access a webpage, "What do you mean this webpage does not support Mozilla Firefox/Avant Browser?"
This could potentially lead to internet users REQUIRING the most recent version of Internet Explorer or some other of Microsoft's overpriced and sub-par software to access many websites.

Well on top of that, I recently bought a laptop that came pre-loaded with Windows Vista. Being that I don't want to run Vista, I figured I'd just get it pulled off and put my current Service Pack for XP on instead, no big deal, right?

Wrong. My lovely assistant Dewy and I found that Vista had some sort of facist strangle-hold on the computer's components and now, though Vista had been pseudo-successfully removed (after some harsh words) my sound doesn't work properly. Doing a bit of reading on the HP website, it turns out Toshiba is no longer allowed to "officially support" XP and is not going to release Windows XP drivers for its newer computer components. All systems sold with Vista should use Vista as their operating system and no other, no matter what you want or think. You're not even to attempt a dual boot system with Vista and the operating system of your choice. That's right, the company interested in keeping "competition on the internet" by taking Yahoo over doesn't want to allow you the use of anything except Vista.

Something about this seems a bit like a dictatorship. I bought a COMPUTER with an operating system, not an operating system with a computer. Seems to me the components of the computer should all belong to me now and it's up to me what software I want to install and what I do with the computer after I've made the purchase. You'd think that would be the case, but as it happens, Microsoft insists that you use their most recent and least useful operating system. They insist so strongly that they make it painful and almost impossible to install anything else.

What's stopping Microsoft from also programming into every HP computer that you can only use Microsoft software and Microsoft accessories. Then you can only use the computer to communicate with other people who also have Microsoft-drenched computers and can only visit Microsoft-approved websites. *disdain*

I think I actually hate them more than I hate Apple, now.

An Open Letter to that Always Controversial Guy in PHIL 231

Dear Always Controversial guy in PHIL 231,

It's obvious you are a Philosophy major with no understanding of reason or logic, but I have one question for you: did you just learn the terms 'subjugation of women' in your 'Women and Gender Studies' class immediately before we had the pleasure of hearing your propaganda today? I'm quite certain you did, being how many times you used it today in class.

While I would not consider myself 'a slave to the capitalist society the media and subjugation of women has created' I would consider you an idiot and I wish you would stop talking. I paid good money for this class and I am trying to learn.

You wasted a solid 35 minutes of my life today and I would like them back. Anytime you get around to doing that would be great.

Sincerely,

Jacquie

PS - Get a haircut and choose a real major. You're perpetuating the problem that is ignorance and ill-education. Making controversial statements does not make classes more interesting, it makes spending time there useless.

PPS - Thank you for reminding me why I stopped attending any and all classes. You have made legitimate my skipping for the last 4 years.

PPPS - Talking about women as if they are currently, perpetually and forever oppressed and how that is 'soooo unfair' will not get you laid. It will most likely get you beaten up

An Open Letter to that Carter kid in my History Tutorial

Dear that Carter kid in my History tutorial,

Stop talking. Just stop. We are all aware that you have memorized every detail of 18th Century Europe's history, but when someone says "And they took away Louis XVI's power" you don't have to interrupt and say "He still had some power." We all know he was granted ultra-weak veto power, but we're generalizing for the purpose of discussion. Please unbutton your top button and pull the first-year-know-it-all stick out of your ass. It's just a tutorial; relax.

kthxbye

An Open Letter to U of S Students


Dear Female Students,

If you have a pair of shoes that look really super awesome but you can't walk in them, please do not wear them to school and then walk in front of me.

That is all.

Sincerely,
Jacqueline

PS - You are probably too fat for skinny jeans and dresses do not double as shirts.

I need to stop reading YouTube video comments

This is also not related to Asia or English, but it will be written in English so it qualifies. Also I hate people who write million-word notes on Facebook and I need to say this.

I think most of my rage problems would be readily solved if I simply stopped reading both the descriptions of and comments posted on YouTube videos. Today, after watching a series of old school rap videos (Kris Kross - Jump inclusive), I accidentally clicked on a video of Hilary Clinton's most recent emotional break-down.




I've been hearing a lot about the stupid American politics on the news lately and frankly, I'm sick of it. But it was the description of this video that really made me cross, it's dripping with ignorance and anyone who knows me knows that is something I cannot stand:

"Tears do not buy votes. Your message, your vision for the country
and hard work do. Socialism doesn't work. It was tried in the 1600's when
the pilgrims landed in America. It failed then and will continue to
fail. Conservatism and Capitalism works every time it is tried."


Aside from the fact that Marx' Communist Manifesto was published sometime around 1848, I'm not looking to argue too much about the historical relevance of Socialism in the 1600's. My history classes are few and far between, but from what I recall the majority of government was some permutation of the feudal system. Anyway, that's only the tip of the iceberg in what annoys me about this passage.

Isn't the US currently both a conservative and capitalist country? How would the average person say that's been working for them so far? Running a nice deficit budget in the trillions of dollars? That's what I thought.
But wait! The USA is the best country in the world; if it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?

More and more I weep for what will happen in this upcoming election. Another mindless twit will be elected, nothing will change and everything will get worse for the rest of the world while the US continues to sit on its pedestal and appoint itself reigning power over all the earth.

Adding fuel to my fire is a NewScientist article from a couple of weeks ago detailing how upset the US defence secretary was when China launched a ballistic missile to destroy one of their OWN defunct satellites in orbit. Interestingly, China and Russia are backing a new convention banning space weapons to follow up the 1966 Outer Space Treaty. The best part is that the US refuses to sign up, saying that agreeing to such a convention 'ties its hands in dealing with a future threat', much like the threat of dwindling oil reserves they're currently dealing with. Good thing the UN wasn't tying their hands with anything about the WMD's in Iraq...

Even as I'm writing this, I've received a number of replies to my youtube comments.
'zupf'
"When we want the unsolicted[sic] opinions of the queen's subjects we'll yank your chain. Otherwise shut up eh? "

Unsolicited? I believe the individual that posted this video included "Feel free to comment on this video below..." in their "About This Video" section. That aside, one could argue all comments on any video are unsolicited, including yours. Turn down the hypocrisy and try adding some intelligence to your unnecessarily hostile outbursts.

'zupf'
"Keep your unsolicited comments about our political system to yourself. Opinions from the quuen's[sic] subjects aren't relevant. "

You must be American, so busy appointing yourself censor and arbitrator of all other nationalities. Lessons from the fools you elect into government, no doubt.

'zupf'
"At least I can vote for my President. Who elected the queen? "

I'm quite certain no one elected her, but I'm not too concerned about it being that I live in CANADA and she has absolutely no power. Read a book.

I hate humans. Anyway, this is way better and less likely to enrage me in any way:

This isn't "Engrish" necessarily...

However, it does have to do with butchering the English language, which is pretty closely related.
I'm going to say it right out: I HATE KANYE WEST AND HIS SONG 'STRONGER'.
That's right, people. Hate. I hate it. And maybe it's just I've had enough.

I think what I hate the most is how "artists" are stealing. And it's not so much the getting away with it that bothers me. What bothers me is that they're receiving praise for plagiarism. Last time I checked, something like that would get me kicked out of University. Remember the "Ice Ice Baby" incident? Pretty sure that ruined careers. Now, a few years later, people are doing exactly the same thing and people are LOVING it.

I first started to notice this when Madonna used the ABBA's "Gimme gimme gimme" melody in the background of her song "Hung up".
Then Gwen Stefani used some samples from The Sound of Music soundtrack in "Wind it Up" and Rhianna used "Tainted Love". It's been getting steadily worse and I have heard people (on more than one occasion, mind you) talk about how original and awesome it is for these "artists" to be adding these samples to their "music" and making them "way better". The latest of these culprits I've noticed to be Kanye "Jesus Christ" West.

In this "music" video, he actually uses the word wronger. I'm not an English teacher [yet] but I'm quite certain this is not a word.

'emerican667' had this to say about the video:
"kanye west is a good musician. his ego and arogance [sic] kills it though."

I fail to see the musicianship involved in sampling Daft Punk and using words that don't exist. [See above: wronger]
Kanye West, and countless other popular artists seem to be single-handedly fooling an entire generation of people into thinking they're "musicians".

Not to mention; how did Daft Punk let this happen? Luckily for them, I know two REAL words and I'm about to use them -- sell and out. As if the GAP commercial wasn't bad enough... really guys. Give your heads a shake.


And so,

I ask, because I'm not sure; does anybody make real music anymore?
