Well screw that!

I’ve given up on the blogging applications as… well.. they just don’t do what I’d like them too.
Instead, I’ve gone and installed FCKeditor (great name, huh?) which seems to perform just ever so slightly better than TinyMCE in my opinion, even if it is a bit slower, too. It does, however, look really snazzy as they’ve adopted the Microsoft look. Not sure if that’s necessarily a good thing or a bad thing, to tell you the truth, but it’s something!
Anyway, I’ve had enough of the blog test posts tonight and for a while. This is the last of them.
The server move should almost be done, what with only a few more directories to upload to the site and that’ll happen overnight, I imagine.
In a few minutes, I’ll make a real post. One you’ll give a shit about.
Okay, I’m lying. You won’t give a shit about it… but it was the thought that mattered, kinda like the gift that never stops giving… like Herpes.
I’m not saying my blog is like Herpes. You don’t have to have sex to get it.
Hell, I don’t get to have sex and I write the fucking thing.

Just a Test

So, this is a test blog from a blog application using some nifty protocols.

There isn’t really a point to this at all.

It’s merely just a test. If you’re reading this, you’re either hopelessly devoted to me (lucky me) or bored shitless.

Probably the latter.

Nothing to see here. Move along.

Now playing: The Verve Pipe – The Freshmen

Cars

So this week I watched the two CGI movies that came out earlier on that directly competed with each other: Dreamworks’ Over The Hedge and Pixar’s Cars.

Now, they were both great. Let me just say that immediately because it’s quite important. They both had a brilliant voice cast, fantastic visuals, good script elements, and great direction.

And Cars was better.

Over The Hedge was cool… and there were some really genius pieces in it that made you feel like you were watching a classic Warner Bros. style cartoon of Bugs Bunny than a slick CGI motion picture… parts were just brilliantly done. And technically, it had a better and less predictable story than Cars, which was nice.

That was practically Cars’ only downside: it’s story. It was your stock standard Pixar story of trying to find one’s self. It’s been used in Toy Story, A Bug’s Life, and Finding Nemo. Probably even The Incredibles to an extent. It seems to be an underlying structure to Pixar films. There’s nothing wrong with it, but it does begin to get a little… boring.

But the movie more than made up for the shortfalls of the story. It was consecutively more funny than Over The Hedge.
For instance, when Over The Hedge made you laugh, it came in bursts. Cars seemed to be mostly constant — for me anyway — which was nice.

The design in Cars was much better than Over The Hedge. Yes, each had incredible animation (the bar just keeps on being raised, making low-level animators like myself feel like we’re never going to get out of this homebrew hole that we’re in), but Cars had more to it design-wise.

From the design of the V8 cafe where they all get oil from (it looks like an engine split up with wrenches connecting it, I think) to the bugs that flying around and look like flies from afar but up close are VW bugs with wings and antennae that drive around on surfaces instead of walking like an actual bug.

The way the characters interact seemed better in Cars too, what with the Italians and the hot-rod characters and… it’s just really remarkable.

Even the end credits… hell, especially the end credits, where Lasseter and the team were so creative they went back to movies like Toy Story, Monsters Inc., and A Bug’s Life and redid scene from those movies as for how they’d be in the world of Cars. It was really quite creative and worth watching just for that… even though there’s so much more to the movie than just the end credits.

The soundtracks on both Cars and Over The Hedge were great, by the way. Soundtracks and scores are one of my most favourite parts of movies and TV shows and neither of them disappointed.

I do however have one minor quibble, and it’s with Cars.

It’s something that I’m not too sure many people would have thought about (probably because they’re not insane like myself) and yet it was the first thing that struck me as you see the Cars take to the track.

You see, the cars are racing on a speedway, but whereas I expected people to be in the crowd, the crowd is made up of other cars… which makes me think that rather than watching a car race, aren’t we technically watching more of an athletics event than a car race?

If people (like you or me… okay, maybe not me… I’m bored by athletics, but that’s not the point) attend a track & field event… say we go see a runner run or jump hurdles… we’re humans at an event we’re humans are racing other humans.

Based on that logic, if cars are attending an event whereby they’re watching cars race other cars on a track, couldn’t one take away from it that they’re watching an automobile athletics event rather than a car racing event.

If the cars were racing in giant people-shaped vehicles… or anything shaped vehicles really… just so long as they were in a vehicle that wasn’t their own body… it could be considered a car race.

I’m looking too far into this, I know, but this is just some of the crap you have to contend with when you have my brain.

Now, aren’t you lucky you don’t?

This blogging system has just pissed me off.

So here I am, writing a blog about how hot [url=http://neuromancerwp.free.fr/Elisha%20Cuthbert%2008%20-%20carbon.png]Elisha Cuthbert[/url] is and making comments about stupid celebrity blogs that blast her because she [url=http://www.egotastic.com/image?path=0511/elisha-cuthbert-lip-wax-08.jpg]has a bit of facial hair[/url] when along comes my Firefox and blogging engine and — working together no doubt on the tip-off from those stupid celebrity blogs — goes ahead and refreshes my page so I lose all my blog.

Thank you blogging engine and Firefox, but mostly I can probably thank Windows. No matter what, it’s Windows’ fault. Always.

So if someone is really obsessive about facial hair and say meets Elisha Cuthbert in a Starbucks and you talk and she talks and you all talk even though the medical world is entirely confused how a guy without a mouth can talk… regardless, you get to talking and she asks you out… instead of being obsessive about the facial hair and saying “sorry but I can’t go out for drinks with you tonight, Elisha… your fuzz on your face just turns me way off” you can say “sorry but I can’t go out for drinks with you tonight, Elisa… my Windows installation has fucked up once again and I need to get it fixed immediately. You can come back to my place and we can have some wine, I’ll make some dinner, and we can install Windows together.” Who knows… if that works, you might just be able to see some fuzz of a different kind. One that is guaranteed to turn you on.

Isn’t that delightful though?

Windows can now become the romantic evening you’ve always wanted.

[b][u]Women: [/u]
Are you sick and tired of your man always turning to his World Of Warcraft computer game instead of paying attention to you?

Have you been asking him “does my bum look big in this?” for weeks now only to get the response “provided you’re not a level 12 rogue, it’s all good”?

Are you tired of all his (your) money going into that monthly fee instead of new shoes for you?[/b]

[b]Well the Windows command “regedit” might just be for you![/b]

Wouldn’t that be a charming way to get couples to rekindle their relationships.

A glass of red… a nice roast… roses… candlelight… and a copy of Windows installing in the background… it might be just what the doctor ordered for a relationship.

No more reasons for [url=http://www.egotastic.com/image?path=0611/lindsay-lohan-halloween-02.jpg&info=Lindsay%20Lohan%20Halloween%20Costume%20Pictures]dressing up like a complete slut[/url] to try to get more guys to grab your ass to make your boyfriend or husband jealous.

It’s just you, regedit, and the delete key.

It’s so romantic, I think I might start crying. Or orgasming. Both are the same these days.

Like when [url=http://www.clubvw.org.au/images/herbie_Mvc-027s.jpg]Herbie[/url] and I got together… we got [url=http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0400497/]fully loaded[/url] and so smashed… it was just me and [url=http://www.ukquad.com/lovebug.jpg]The Love Bug[/url] (as he likes to be called)… we were drinking and doing some nasty shit and then [url=http://www.egotastic.com/image?path=0611/lindsay-lohan-halloween-slutty-04.jpg&info=Lindsay%20Lohan%20Halloween%20Costume%20Pictures]along comes Lindsay to show us who’s really the nasty one[/url].
Seriously, I have nothing against the way she’s dressed up for Halloween… but somehow, I didn’t think of [url=http://www.egotastic.com/image?path=0611/lindsay-lohan-halloween-slutty-10.jpg&info=Lindsay%20Lohan%20Halloween%20Costume%20Pictures]Lindsay’s black-panty ass[/url] when I was watching Mean Girls.

Okay, maybe I did… but that’s entirely not the point.

And wow… [url=http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger2/1772/2447/1600/11173888mmateo111200635821PM.jpg]how far has Michelle Trachtenberg come[/url] from The Adventures of Pete & Pete? She’s the Snow White, in case you’re wondering. I mean… wow. I wouldn’t watch [url=http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0356150/]Eurotrip[/url] since it looks like junk, but I’d gladly look at her all day.

And then a policeman would likely come and read me my rights and arrest me for stalking.

No, seriously… I wouldn’t stalk anyone. I’m far too lazy for that.

But what is it about Halloween that makes all the hot girls seem even hotter? Must be those costumes. Damn costumes.

If costumes were a thing of normality, I imagine that people wearing regular clothes would be hot when they did. Weird that.

Life is funny. But not too funny. Only funny enough.

Funnier than the Paris Hilton sex tape, though. No wonder [url=http://www.egotastic.com/entertainment/celebrities/paris-hilton/paris-hilton-likes-eating-more-than-fing-001826]she prefers eating to sex…[/url] have you seen that video? [url=http://leighlo.flollop.com/index.php?/archives/24-The-Nutjob-of-Gauge.html]The Tugjob Of Self[/url] could do a better job than that.

Granted, it wouldn’t be as interesting to look at, but The Tugjob Of Self would likely be better at it than The Bane Of The Hilton Empire.
