A photo that changed the world

Flight 1903

On December 17, 1903, two bicycle mechanics from Ohio realized one of humanity’s wildest dreams: For 12 seconds they were possessed of true flight. Before the day ended, Orville and Wilbur Wright would keep their wood-wire-and-cloth Flyer aloft for 59 seconds. Sober citizens knew that only birds used wings to take to the air, so without being at the site, near Kitty Hawk, N.C., or seeing this photo, few would have believed the Wrights’ story. Although it had taken ages for humans to fly, once the brothers made their breakthrough, the learning curve reached the heavens. Within 15 years of this critical moment, nearly all the elements of the modern airplane had been imagined, if not yet developed.

Travis Bickle quote of the week

The days go on and on… they don’t end. All my life needed was a sense of someplace to go. I don’t believe that one should devote his life to morbid self-attention, I believe that one should become a person like other people.
A couple sleeping pills and other substances. And the night drags on and on.
Hope in one hand. Shit in the other. We'll see which one gets filled first.

celebrity sighting

Over the past week or so I've seen both


Haley Joel Osmet



Gilbert Gottfried walking in the street...

why can't I see


or maybe:


Last night/Up The Irons


Went to a special screening of the new Iron Maiden documentary Flight 666. Last year the band invited a film crew to travel with them on their world tour. An ambitious journey only made possible through the use of a private jet called Ed Force 1. The best part? Lead singer, Bruce Dickinson, actually flew the fucking thing...


I should have known, but Maiden fans are a .. well fanatic bunch. Before the movie started people were screaming out their first maiden show

and I think half the audience was wearing Maiden shirts. One guy even had a rubber mask of Eddie from the Powerslave album cover...


50,000 miles
5 continents
23 concerts
in just 45 days

Run for the hills muthafucka!

douchebag of the week

Renee Zellweger. I don't know anyone who likes her.

The nights are so long.
What I wouldn't give for just a little inner peace.


Aries (3/21-4/19)

If your recent dreams have been unclear, don't worry. They don't mean anything.

Gee thanks Yahoo Horoscopes for telling me my dreams are meaningless. Thankfully I think astrology is bullshit.

Another pic for Sun.

Yes the trashcans in my apartment building are frickin' awesome.

I got a head full of ideas
that are driving me insane

a few more

This one was over played...

And yes, pardon the quality


I did like Little Caesar's commercials.. If you listen closely you'll hear what the Beastie Boys sampled for the beginning of "Sure Shot"

Does anyone?

remember these horrible commercials? Oh how I hated them. And oh how glad I am they didn't become advertising icons like the "Where's the beef" lady.

Cletus' train log blog: a Sox production

Cletus train log April 17, 2009 - Again she continues to elude me. Did I look like an asshole when I was acting all cool with my friends the other day?? What have I done for her to avoid me. Now now Cletus, don't lose it. Maybe she is just sick. Maybe you'll see her on Monday and she'll say "hi". Just keep it together man.

Cletus' train log blog: a Sox production

Cletus' train log April 16, 2009 - She wasn't on the train this morning. Is she avoiding me? I must investigate further..

Highway to the torture zone

So Fonzie has posted about this before. But i thought I'd give my 2 cents. Last night after a Hoboken sushi jaunt, Miss Alex and I were hanging around her crib chillin', the neighbor's torture light was on. Out of the blue we hear a scream. We figure they must be really wailing on the kid tonight. We pop our heads out the window to investigate. Alex starts singin' "Highway to to the torture zone", putting Kenny Loggins to shame.


Now maybe you had to be there, but it cracked our shit up something fierce. So I figure each day of the week is a different kind of torture.

Monday - Rack night. They put the poor kid on a rack and stretch him until his shoulders and hips become dislocated. The real fun comes when they pop his joints back into their sockets. They give him a leather strap to bite on. If he screams, that's an extra flogging.


Tuesday - Paper cut and rubbing alcohol night. They take some primo card stock and use it to give the kid paper cuts on his eyelids and the skin between his fingers and toes. Then they swab the cuts in copious amounts of rubbing alcohol. If they are feeling particularly vicious they use salt.


Wednesday - Waterboarding night. This one is self explanatory.


Thursday - Human pinata night. This one of the only days of the week the kid gets to eat. He gets fed a good meal and then they beat him until he pukes it back up. If they are feeling REALLY mean they make him eat the puke.


Friday - Broken glass bath night. Among the chamber of horrors in the attic is an old bath tub full of broken glass. On Fridays they force the poor kid to lie in it for an hour. They don't allow him to sit still for more than 5 mins at a time insuring that he is constantly getting cut.

this my baby girls and you don't have kids Pictures, Images and Photos

Saturday - Lit cigarettes on the soles of the feet night. This one is self explanatory to. Bare feet. Lit cigarette. Ouch. Now Sat is generally a day of staying out late and having some fun. It's been a long week and everyone has some steam to blow off so the second half of the evening is a grab bag anything goes. A simple slap? No problem. A knife under the fingernails? Knock yourself out.


Sunday - Intestinal Russian Roulette night. The boy is asked to choose 1 out of a possible 5 meals. 4 of these have a non fatal dose of e coli. If he happens to choose the 1 meal that doesn't have the bacteria he is beaten with a brick until unconscious.


There you have it people. He needs our help. Up next? Plotting a daring rescue.

Another typical Tuesday night

Obama - Pirate killer


Here's the trailer for Lars von Trier's "Anti-Christ". Will it be as good as "Rosemary's Baby"? I doubt it. But still.. It does look creepy.
