For those of you that haven’t heard, a group of scientists last week have voted Pluto off this island of planets we call our Solar System and demoted it to what is known as a dwarf planet. For many of us, Pluto has been in our science books, in our culture, even in our cartoons.

Place Your Bets!

I’ve decided to go into the “bookie” business… I’m starting wagers on who will inherit the Earth. Due to recent events in the news, it looks like robots are out in front.

The legend of the Chupacabra!

Over the weekend, Farah and I were over my sisters having dinner with her, Mike, her husband, and their four kids. We were discussing an upcoming camping trip that we’re all going on (along with Matt and Janet) to a campground in Santa Cruz. While talking about the trip, my nephew, Nikolai blurts out, “Are […]

What to do about Moussaoui…

What to do about Moussaoui… Zacarias Moussaoui is currently being tried for his part in the conspiracy that resulted in the attack on the World Trade Center. He’s up for the death penalty and has no remorse about what happened on 9/11. With this case in the news… I’ve been thinking… There seems to be […]

Awesome Movie Reviews: Hollow Man

Last night Farah and I watched Hollow Man on DVD. I actually saw this movie in the theater when it first came out, but because invisible man movies are so awesome, I bought the DVD and like to watch it again and again from time to time.

Wondercon: 2006!

Wondercon: 2006!!! Last weekend I got to experience a comic book/sci-fi convention in San Francisco… I’m not really into comic books, but I have a friend, Tim, who loves them and who kept bugging me to go to this major comic event… I was hemming and hawing over it since the event wasn’t really my […]

News: The First Step in the Road to Peace.

After reading more tragic news today about the Islam vs. Denmark thing, I decided that, to hopefully distract the Muslim world from Denmark’s insulting cartoon, a more uplifting cartoon is in order to help ease tensions and hopefully start a road of peace between the Muslim’s, Denmark, and indeed, all nations and religions.

Farewell Bill and Ted

While visiting with my nieces and nephews last night, I found the eulogy that my nephew, Vitali, wrote for his pet hermit/tree crabs who recently died sitting on the kitchen table. For Christmas, Santa brought him some pet hermit/tree crabs. It was a hermit crab terrarium kit with a note that the crabs would arrive […]

Sooshi with Greg

A few weeks ago, I took my buddy, Greg, out to sushi for his birthday.

News: Denmark? Oh No You D’int!!!

In the news this week, A newspaper in Denmark is under fire from publishing a cartoon of the Muslim prophet Mohammed (or Muhammad, depending on which news source you read from) wearing a turban that’s shaped like a bomb. In the Muslim world, apparently, depictions, even positive ones, of Mohammed are forbidden in order to […]

Vegas: Day 1

Some friends and took a trip to Las Vegas last month… My long time friend, Tony, was throwing a birthday party for himself on Dec. 17th night at the Bellagio. From the day I decided I was going to go, I planned on driving… I love road trips and hate airports, so this seemed like […]

So, last Friday I was over babysitting my nieces and nephews for a few hours and I got to see Disney’s Brother Bear. Only Alina and I watched it… Karina had done something wrong before I got there and was in jail in her room… and the Playstation had it’s mind control over the boys […]

Disneyland: Day 3

CONTINUED FROM: Disneyland: Day 2 …After the marathon day that was day two, I was, on this third day, again, waking up slow… Vince was already up and had been next door to Sherry’s, Mike’s, and the kid’s room and had lodged our door open when he came back over to our room. Minutes later, […]

Disneyland: Day 2

CONTINUED FROM: Disneyland: Day 1 …By the time I crawled out of bed on day two at the Portofino hotel at Disneyland, everyone else was already up and getting ready to go… They all wanted to go to breakfast, but I wasn’t in the mood to rush and plus, Vince and I had already been […]

Destination Disneyland finished up last weekend. A three day adventure filled crazy weekend to the Magic Kingdom. We (Sherry, Mike, the four kids and me) left on Friday right after work (I don’t have a girl to go on vacations with, so Mike and Sher are cool to let me tag along on theirs so […]

Groundbreaking Scientific Theory!

I actually wrote this one at in January of this year… But I wanted some art to visualize it and asked Derek to draw it up so it would be good art (since he knows how to draw), but he couldn’t find the time… So I decided, “screw it, I’ll draw it, it,ll suck, but […]

Parking and Corpses in San Franshithole

And, so you think those Katrina victims have it tough, Pleeze!!! How about my pain! I had to deal with parking in San Francisco over the weekend… Hmph, If you had the choice between a case of dysentery and having to go a few days without food or water, or having to deal with PARKING […]

Canada: The Great White North

So, this American couple are driving around Canada, and they are lost. So very very lost. Finally they find a gas station. The wife goes inside and asks “Excuse me, could you tell me what city this is?” and the gas attendant says “Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.” She gets back in the car, puzzled. The husband says, […]

Adventure In Truckee!

Well, we’re back from beautiful Truckee/Donner Lake, California. I rode up with my 10 year old nephew, Nikolai who, along with his sister Karina, is a notorious button pusher. So, most of that ride with him was him pushing every friggin’ button in my Jeep. Window down, window up, window down, window up… door lock, […]

Awesome Movie Reviews: War of the Worlds

So, I saw War of the Worlds last night… My bro’, Tim works projection at the Camera Theaters and he was test running the film to make sure he didn’t splice it upside down which would make the premiere audience “boo” him, so he invited me down to watch the test run. Hey Tim… It […]

Awesome Movie Reviews: Episode III, The Revenge of the Sith

Well, I finally saw Star Wars: Episode III, The Revenge of the Sith. All I can say is, I ain’t gay or nuthin’, but if Industrial Light and Magic had balls, I’d lick them for a month to show my gratitude. It was fuckin’ awesome!!! I saw it at the Century 22, on the smaller […]

Awesome Movie Reviews: Million Dollar Baby

I finally saw Million Dollar Baby. The movie stars Hilary Swank as a girl who wants to be a boxer… She harasses Clint Eastwood’s character to be her manager until he finally caves in and agrees. I don’t blame him for giving in, she’s kind of cute even with the horse teeth and that annoying […]

Awesome Movie Reviews: House Of Wax

Even though it hasn’t come out yet, and I’ve only seen the online preview, I’m reviewing the new movie, “House of Wax.” This movie stars Elisha Cuthbert, a smokin’ hot chick, and also stars Paris Hilton, another smokin’ hot, albeit, annoying chick. It also stars some dudes, or whatever – who cares, in a […]

I had always wanted to see this one, but never got around to it. But, it popped up on TV over the weekend, so I checked it out. I’ve watched all of those teen movies from back in the day, and even some of the more recent ones… I loved that fantasy where the funny, […]


So, With my new residence, I have the choice of three Safeways to do my shopping at between my work and new home.

Yo! Yo! Mardy Grazzizle in da houz ya’ll – WHAT! WHAT! say yeah!!! HUP! HUP! HUP! HUP! ughhh….

If anybody ever tells you, “That’s just a stereotype, you shouldn’t base your judgments on stereotypes.”, ignore them… I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… Stereotypes perpetuate themselves. Other people don’t create the stereotype, the stereotype creates the stereotype. Last night, a few of us went downtown to the Mission Ale House for […]

Awesome Movie Reviews: Aliens of the Deep

Last weekend I went and saw “Aliens of the Deep” at the Imax in San Francisco. Before anyone gets too excited, there are no cool aliens eating a bunch of idiot spacemen. While those kind of movies are way cool… This ain’t one of them. Aliens of the Deep is a new documentary style (Think […]

Awesome Movie Reviews: Resident Evil: Apocalypse

I was somewhat disappointed with the first Resident Evil… It’s okay, but could have been cooler. I’d heard people say that Apocalypse sucked, but my roommate had gotten it through his mail order Blockbuster account, so I thought WTF… It’s here, it’s free, I’ll watch it. Now, I’ve noticed in the past that how good […]
