Wow, look at that Banana!

Man that’s not cool.

What’s so special about that banana anyhow? How does he get two pretty girls attracted to him like that? Does he drive a fancy hummer or something? Why would the two ladies share that one banana, when there are so many other bananas in the world? What makes him so special? How come he has two girls and I don’t even have one, that’s not fair, and its not right either.

I hate looking at that, it makes me so jealous,

Stupid banana, I hate you, you suck.

You know what Mr. Banana, I was just thinking I would go make myself a banana split, or a nice banana milkshake, or a banana cream pie, huh what do you think about that Mr. Banana ?

Stupid Lucky Banana. You are so not cool.

Treat A Friend Like A Friend

Mar 15th, 2011 | Filed under Opinions and Perspectives

The idea of treating a friend like a friend may seem like an obvious one to most people, but sadly it is not followed as much as it should be.

I come from Vancouver Canada, and growing up there had a lot of what the English might call, “Taking the Piss”, we would jokinly point out other peoples poor choice in clothing we laugh at their mistakes, and generally make fun of our friends every chance we got. If there are three of us in a room, and only two chairs, we tended to race for the two chairs and laugh at the guy that doesn’t get one.This was pretty normal as a kid, and although it pretty much causes everyone some unhappiness, most of us eventually get over it, and get on with life.

As I have gotten older, I find most of all my friends gave up this poor behavior, they offer their chairs to friends, and become complimentary and supportive, generally, good friends. A small minority though continue to be a poor friend.

Eventually after many years, you might find there is only one person who still treats you like this, the joke is old and tired and no longer funny. With that particular person being the only one in your life that is still trying to take the last doughnut, insult you, talk behind your back, laugh at you, and generaly undermine your every move, you realize “With a friend like this, Who needs an enemy?”

If all someone does is act like a jerk all the time, isn’t that what they really are?

Sometimes it is just best to treat your friends like friends, otherwise people will eventualy get tired of you, and spend their time hanging out with better people. No one likes to put up with abuse. We all need to begin acting like adults once we grow up.

Wow, that’s a nice new car you have there, thanks for showing me that. Oh,  a nice new big screen HDTV at home too?

Your big promotion at work sure does get you a lot of cool stuff.

Yes I know you are bigger than me, no need to point that out, even a two year old can see that, you do realize UFC bouts are not won with the weigh in though right?

Hey man I am starting to see a pattern forming here. You are obviously pretty high on yourself right now, and normally I wouldn’t mind, but you seem to be insinuating you are better than me or something, so before you go thinking that you are an Alpha male, and I am a Beta, I just want you to have a good look at something here.

That is a picture of your girlfriend, and this is a picture of my girlfriend.

Nuff Said?

Turtle Does the Butt Dance

Feb 16th, 2011 | Filed under Video

One day a long time ago, when I was a young teenager I decided to came home from the local mall with a couple of baby turtles. I enjoyed watching them swim around in their fish tank, and would often let them out to run around the house. They were cute little guys that would look out at me quite a bit, and seemed to recognize me as their friend.

Turtles for the most part are actually pretty good pets, but I found cleaning their tank a bit of a tedious chore, the longer I had them, the longer the gaps between their cleaning became. Eventually the tank got so bad I just couldn’t bring myself to try and clean it anymore, and the turtles so filthy I no longer wanted to touch them. I was afraid I might let them die as I did my sea monkeys when I was younger, and still being very fond of them I found looking at them swimming in their muck a bit depressing. Thankfully the pet store which sold them to me was willing to take them back.

Having watched the cleaning of this turtle in the video below, I now realize it didn’t need to be such a chore after all, if only I had thought of using a tooth brush.



The Mountain Goats – Cotton

Feb 14th, 2011 | Filed under Music, Song Lyrics, The Mountain Goats, Video

I just heard this song tonight for the first time by a California band called The Mountain Goats.

I like it, have a listen:

This song is for the rats
Who hurled themselves in to the ocean
When they saw that the explosives in the cargo hold
Were just about to blow

This song is for the soil
That’s toxic clear down to the bedrock
Where no thing of consequence can grow
Drop your seeds there
Let them go

Let them all go
Let ’em all go

This song is for the people
Who tell their families that they’re sorry
For things they can’t and won’t feel sorry for

And once there was a desk
And now it’s in a storage locker somewhere
And this song is for the stick pins and the cottons
I left in the top drawer

Let ’em all go
Let ’em all go

I wanna sing one for the cars
That are right now headed silent down the highway
And it’s dark and there is nobody driving
And something has got to give

I saw you waiting by the roadside
You didn’t know that I was watching
Now you know
Let it all go

Let ’em all go
Let it all go
