Insteresting stuff, yo.

30 09 2007

Khat – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khat – 740 pounds was confiscated by Philadelphia police. this drug can be ingested like chewing tobacco (packin lip) or made into a tea. both forms – dry and fresh – contain drugs (cathine and cathinone) which are found in amphetamines. “Khat consumption induces mild euphoria and excitement.”
an unidentified person said that taxi drives often use this drug to stay awake and alert during long and late shifts. Khat has a can induce hyperactivity, constipation and users are said to become more talkative. it’s said to cause a lack of appetite too. cheaper than cocaine, authorities are becoming worried.

Contraception for Men – http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21038295/wid/11915773?GT1=10412
Pills are being developed for several effects:
” * Sperm blocker: Researchers who have been developing the Intra Vas Device are expected to announce test results showing “substantial equivalence to traditional vasectomy methods” in a study of 90 men. The device — a set of removable plugs — blocks sperm in the vas deferens, the tube that’s cut in a vasectomy. Further research is needed to find whether fertility returns after the plugs are removed.
* Testosterone-like pill: A drug called “selective androgen receptor modulator,” or SARM, is being tested on humans as an osteoporosis and muscle-wasting treatment. It also shows promise as a male pill, researchers said. A similar drug taken orally reduces sperm counts in rabbits.
* Nonhormonal pill: Research shows a non-hormonal compound called CDB-4022 prevents monkey sperm from swimming to their destination. Upon stopping treatment, fertility returned completely in 16 weeks, according to researchers at the University of Pittsburgh. But the safety of the drug still needs to be tested. “

Male contraception is dangerous but good too. rape = bad. good = play boys.

Phillies back to tied for first in the NL East. Good luck with that. Moyer’s pitching? he’s 50 right?
playoffs, maybe.

Today:
TV with a cup of grapefruit juice and rye bread with butter. the butter was delicious.
Reading for English. What was it about….? hmmm. oh yes, french fries and the McDonald’s model. the main message was about advertising, I think. if healthy foods are marketed as tastey and filling and delicious rather than healthy it will sell better. The McLean Deluxe was a great example of how health-oriented marketing failed. and the other essay was a rant by a wife who wants to have a wife. She goes on about what her wife would do and not do and it’s a good analysis of what women expect to become when the become married.
After reading, I went out to Herb’s. (Music – Avril “girlfriend”) got supplies – beads and hemp. and drove into town to what I expected to be a good “kill-two-birds-with-one-stone” (one-parkjob, actually, but still) adventure. (Music – Dispatch “the general”) 1 – got blacks from the cigar parlor. the guy had a beautiful beard and long dreads. asked “need matches?” “no” “matches, lighter, hug? you need a hug?” “sure, I’d love to” 2 – Philadelphia Inquirer. Bagel Barrel and The bookstore did not have it. and I wasn’t going to settle. so Wawa. (Music – Sublime “Got the hooch”)
stopped at CVS to see Rach. but to my surprise – Rach and Jessi were there. it was brief. but good.
Newspaper highlights – Dunkin Donuts coupons, “Zane’s Trance”, “Poem” and http://www.storytour.org.
I want a donut. yum! Zane’s Trance is a book about a boy who writes compulsively and goes on a trip to visit his mother’s grave which he hopes to be his resting place too. a journey of sorts. Story Tour is a van tour in Philadelphia that films the stories of individuals. Made of the First Person Festival and Memoir and Documentary Arts held November 7-11. go to the website to watch the stories. only going to be filming 5 days a week for one month. and if you see a retro van with film equipment, stop and tell your story.
Poem by Ryan Navin

I am a calm, messy, paranoid perfectionist
Insomniac that sleeps like a baby.
I am an intellectual who can’t read
And a musician who can’t hear.
I am an ARTIST with no poems, pictures plots or
Paintings to properly personify my particular problems.
No songs, synonyms, soliloquies, or sonnets to
Sincerely speak my specific situations.
I am as strong as a rock worn down with time
I am as peaceful as a deserted Island used for Nuclear Bombs.
I always do what’s right,
Never what’s left.
I am a poem with a bad ending.

Here’s to you, Ryan Navin, artist indeed.

I’m back home in my town of Doylestown. I love it. I saw the extreme-walking-kinda-like-a-raptor man. and the change of color in the environment is devestatingly beautiful. Today’s title comes from “Mad Men”. an advertisement for a city, more than a company: Pittsburgh – brought to you by Bethlehem Steel.
I miss sleeping naked. I can’t do that at college, unless I get a single at PSU. Oh yeah, I’m transferring to Penn State, cross my fingers hoping to get into main campus. I’m finally getting over a headache that stemmed from late last night. I don’t know the cause of it yet, it’s probably psychological or that grinding problem with my teeth. That’s how I deal with things bothering me. and I can’t find my nightguard – retainer-ish thing.

Overheard at CB West:
Girl: what the FUCK!
Guy: LANGUAGE!…fucking dykes.

I miss seeing a sunset and a sunrise without the corruption of buildings. and at 2AM last night I finally finished shaving, I was so busy yesterday.
Drove home, went to the courthouse (which was pointless because everything closes 45 minutes before it should), bank, drop mom of at nail salon, home, pick mom up, drop pills of at Raffelle’s, Kmart, Superfresh, CVS. Home – Change clothes, eat, drink. Out – Cameron picked me up and we went to the East-West Game (an east home game).
East-West Game:
Jesse Sherk!
Al Pitman!
Mr. Przybyszewski – only guy in the normal stands standing up to watch the game
There was a cute baby by the field when Cameron and I stood by the field
People I saw:
Carolyn, Maddie, Kim, Ian, Sean, Kelsey, Payton, Eli, Emily, Bodor, Rach, Susie, CC, Timmy, Maddie, Sean Foster, Gelb, Lembo, Greg, Warpath McGrath, Jen, Bethanny, Zach, Mitch, Lilah, Plum, Villagra, Conley, Nicolo.
Good time.
And then I saw my Jacki!
and we went to get Chinese (food).
and we went home and she’s beautiful. and I drove her home.
I feel asleep to Ali G.

I had weird thing in my mind at night. occasionally I would hear screaming. and it wasn’t like angry it was just loud screaming about normal stuff. like “I NEED TO USE THE BATHROOM”.





Another interesting case

28 09 2007

Michael Hearne, 43, charged with misconduct. 19 year veteran Camden county police officer. He lent his own gun to a friend in a plot to rob drug dealers. I wonder if it was an act of robin hood, or of sheriff of nottingham. he’s barred from public office in New Jersey. He was suspended previously for advising a drug kingpin – Jose Rivera – on how to talk to narcotics investigators.
What are your motives, Mr. Hearne? are you trying to help the Camden community or yourself? am I out of line to ask?
Motives are often overlooked in court, in fact, in most cases they are absent. French courts work differently, I’d like to look into that. Had it been a selfless act, should he be arrested? Lethal weapons are dangerous, but so are drug dealers.





Do Not Reelect These Senators

28 09 2007

Question: On the Cloture Motion (Motion to Invoke Cloture on the Kennedy Amdt. No. 3035 )
To expand “federal Hate-crime law to include gay men and lesbians”

Do not reelect these senators:
Alexander (R-TN), Nay

Sununu (R-NH), Nay
Thune (R-SD), Nay
Vitter (R-LA), Nay

In his defense however, John Cornyn of Texas said this “All crimes of violence are crimes of hate.”

Other news, 70% of White Americans believe OJ Simpson’s charges to be true. whereas 41% of Black Americans believe the charges to be true. He was set up, that’s all I’ll say.

Mychal Bell was released on bond and will be charged as a minor. Walter’s, the District Attorney in the case dropped adult charges, but not because of protests, but because they were denied by thrown out by Third Circuit District of Appeal. He that only God kept the protest peaceful. Yeah, they aren’t human beings or anything. fuck off, you little bitch.

My heart goes out to two foreign Red Cross workers abducted in Afghanistan. They aided in freeing South Korean hostages.

Also, don’t forget to follow the Senates attack on Moveon.org for their ad saying “General Petreaus or General Betray us?” Freedom of speech is being attacked. If an organization can’t speak it’s mind, what makes you think you can speak yours?

This is the first section.





Morning! (paranthesis)

28 09 2007

I planned in advance for this day (ok so I didn’t plan that well, it was just a thought a couple days ago). I made coffee ice cubes(yum)! and before english (110) I put a hot steamy pot of coffee on. and so I made iced coffee after I got my newspaper (the philadelphia inquirer). It’s so good (the coffee)! today’s headline are nothing to rave about (a long walk shows strides street has made, septa imposes another fare hike – WOW!) so I decided to read the first paragraph of each article and the story about mayor streets walking and excersizing caught my attention. Because mayor streets brother (milton) has been in the news on a bad note (bribery and what not), I was curious as to what people thought about Mayor street, hisself. FUCK (Search for torrentsI need sugar, iced coffee without sugar, are you mad?!) Because walker texas ranger is not interesting today (which is suprising, I know), I searched through the wide world of tv, and I found a JEM (Mythbusters!). Today’s topics are excited(Movie-type shooting – if there is enough power in a bullet that will transfer enough to push a body back like in the movies, and the brown note – a frequency that makes you poop your pants). EWWWW (poop!).
I’ll write again (don’t worry).
For now I’m busy (pooping my pants).





It’s a Pan!

I’m just not quite right today

28 09 2007

Something’s wrong, I don’t know what it is. is it too loud? is it too quite? I just don’t feel entertained. I’m not amused. I need a certain type of person, someone fun but with curiousity. someone who doesn’t challenge me to resist the urge to scream. someone who challenges my intellect and curiousity in argument. I miss me sometimes. I miss my house and independence. and the ability to kick someone out of my own room. I want. I am greedy. I want. to read a newspaper and show how interesting the world is. to watch something beautiful and tell it to someone. like how I saw the biggest leaf today. it was bigger than a piece of paper. it was truly a looseleaf. This week was rough. High school classes were more intimate. I liked discussion. I don’t care for lectures. I put some effort into expressing my life and putting my study of the weird into my blog. I haven’t spent much time for who I might be. I think I’ll be psychology-ing up with my Social studies ed or minor or something-something. Fuck sports and puzzles and games. sometimes. Today, something’s not quite right today. I don’t need anything right now. I don’t need to buy clothes. I don’t need anything more. I don’t need anything to own. I’m an easy person. I’d like some attention. “There’s a healing in the angel-wing of sleep.” Thanks Frederick Douglass.

To quote Dave Wyndorf

Whoa

I’m just not quite right today
