Awesome Muzak

Friday, August 14, 2009

I think this might be an interesting thing to do. You know, ripping ideas from Bunk Strutts.

Anyways, the point is I’ve selected 3 songs of which I am fond and I will be putting them up. And then I guess I’ll throw in something from my youtube favorites all special just for all of you.

My first selection would be The Clash. Don’t really feel like describing the videos any more than that. They can do the talking.

And the next video is a song called Nun Fight by Paul and Storm, one of the two artists that emerged in the aughts that I really enjoy listening to, the second being Jonathan Coulton.

That video probably also offended God like the previous two posts. My apologies. I’ll have to call up Jesus and we can go barbequing.

But with all heresy aside, here’s Elvis Costello.

Hope you enjoyed that, you ever-present, mostly not-commenting readers. Here’s your cool video I promised you.

Sources are available by watching the videos on youtube.


Observations By Myself

Wednesday, August 12, 2009
  • This is just a list of sentences for some reason.
  • It’s because I have many observations.
  • What if the universe is in a petri dish?
  • If the world were in reverse, cows would be barbequing (uh-huh) humans.
  • I like apple pie a la mode.
  • I was never any good at playing Asteroids for some reason.
  • End of the world scenarios:
  1. Nuclear holocaust
  2. Asteroids
  3. Gamma Ray Burst
  4. Mr. T stepping on Chuck Norris’ toes accidentally. And at that time they’re on bad terms and 40 feet tall. And have beards made of fire.
  5. Zombie apocalypse (the most fun-sounding)

But no matter what the apocalypse, I think it’d be fun to have a post-apocalyptic blog. If I haven’t been incinerated, zombified or engulfed in flaming beard. That blog stuff would be there forever, you know? Imagine when the human race has ended, a new species arises. An operational computer would be a great discovery. That is, if they learned the language somehow, of course (Google Translate?). And now, I’m imagining what they would think of this blog…

“This Chuck Norris… This Mr. T… They must have been deities. They must be eternal and all-powerful. WE MUST WORSHIP THEM.”

They would be right, obviously. I can see it now. A religious war, on one end the T-ists, on the other the Chuck-lims.

That’d be awesome.

Awesome or Not 2: Zheng He

Monday, August 10, 2009

If your unfamiliar with the rules, go and find the first post. Anyways, this post, I’ll be determining the awesomeness level of Zheng He.

Here he is.

Here he is.

Now, based on this picture and anything you already know about this guy, tell me your opinion:

Now, my view on appearance.

  • Fancy robe. Looks like a relaxed guy and all.
  • I want that hat.
  • Looks like he’s on some sort of boat.
  • Notice how he keeps that look on his face, but still holds that sword. Sorta saying “Hey, I’m pretty sure I can cut you with my eyes closed.”
  • Lack of facial hair.

Overall, I’m gonna give him good marks for appearance.

Onto achievements.

  • Explored the seas for China. But that’s not the best part. This is the size of the boat. And wasn’t it Teddy Roosevelt who said “Speak Chinese softly, but sail a huge boat.”? Yes.
  • He could have potentially discovered America in 1421. 71 years before Columbus. (Even though the guy’s theory has been dismissed as crap, it’s still pretty cool to read.)
  • Thought to be the origin of Sinbad. Because he went to Persia and all. Here’s his voyage map.
  • Basically second in command to this Yongle emperor guy. Yongle is a funny word.
  • He did all this and more despite the fact that he was a eunuch.

Anti-achievements to wrap it up.

  • He was a eunuch.
  • Eunuchs of the time carried around their…removed parts…in jars. Possibly pickled. It’d make a conversation a bit awkward.

And that’s all I can think up. And here we go. Zheng He is…

AWESOME

And there you have it! Looks like the kind of guy that would go barbequing (Yes!) and have a party. If it weren’t for his -cough- pickle jar.

Update: Added a rating mechanism at the bottom of the post (at least when you’re just on the post and not the main page).

Sunday Means Word Of The Week

Sunday, August 9, 2009

It’s something to do. Yay!

So I’ll go ahead to this random word generator and this week, I’ll find an uncommon verb! And it is…

“Barbequing.”

Mmm! Just like mama used to make it!

Mmm! Just like mama used to make it!

Where I found it.

So I think I’ll try to use this week’s word in all the posts that are enveloped in this week. Exciting, I know.

Coming up: Zheng He

For moral reasons?

What?

No problem.

Bye for now.
