lol... My mom absolutely hates that video... I think it's a work of art ;)


Rev_Blair @ Fri Jan 30, 2004 4:22 pm

I did it. I was singing the song at work. The art director said, "Shut up." I said, "Fuck you," and continued singing. He accused me of caterwauling, I agreed whole-heartedly (I have a really bad voice at the best of times) and continued singing. He wandered off to do important art director things. I turned all of his desk drawers upside down and tied his paperclips into a chain, stole the staples from his stapler and attached all his elastic bands to his computer and peripherals. It is Friday, after all.

At lunch I showed the video to the camera monkeys, the lab guy, and the stylist. We all sang together. The art director hid in his office and pouted all afternoon. We all hung out in "The Looney Bin" and drank beer. We created several odd photos involving Barbie, Smithwick's bottles, and some lingerie for really big women....Oh, and a home hair-cutting kit.

I hope there's some actual work to do next week.

It's The End Of The World As We Know It.....Again!

Not me, dude. I'm gonna live forever and if I don't...well there's the whole insurance thing.

And I'm curious about these doomsday believers (isn't that an Anne Murray/Monkey's song? :wink: ) buy insurance? Are they the ones turning on their receivers when those two old broads are chatting in the coffee shop or those two aging miscreants are out drinking whiskey in their boat? If so, are they planning on collecting?

"Life on earth can take care of itself. In the thinking of a human being, a hundred years is a long time. A hundred years ago, we didn't have cars and airplanes and computers and vaccines... It was a whole different world. But to the earth, a hundred years is nothing. A million years is nothing. This planet lives and breathes on a much vaster scale. We can't imagine its slow and powerful rhythms, and we haven't got the humility to try. We have been residents here for the blink of an eye. If we are gone tomorrow, the earth will not miss us." "We haven't got the power to destroy the planet-or save it. But we might have the power to save ourselves." (or destroy ourselves.) (Jurassic Park page:369 1st and 2nd paragraph)

My point is we can destroy the mankind but not the planet.

Yea, but the planet would look much nicer if it wasn't for us. Anyway, nice story Rev. lol. You sure you didn't emotionally scar the art director? Check his "to do list" and see if hes added visit pyschiatrist. :)


Rev_Blair @ Thu Feb 05, 2004 7:24 pm

He's an art director at a photo studio, Laconfir...annoying him is part of my job description.

We do actually have the power to destroy the planet as a viable support system for life, Shark. In the meantime we seem to be practising up by wiping out three or four species a day....likely a lot more.

This is a trilogy based on the Alpha Centauri CG (which I've never played so I don't know how closely it follows the game). It ends up being pretty apocalyptic (sp?).

Centauri Dawn

In the future, amidst rising global tensions, the UN has created a starship named Unity to colonize the planet Chiron in the Alpha Centauri system (our closest galactic neighbor). However as the ship begins it's mission a nuclear war erupts on Earth destroying all life on the planet. The Unity is humanities last hope. 40 years pass (the crew is in a sort of cryo-sleep) and the Unity reaches the Centauri system. Disastour strikes when a malfunction damages the ship and triggers a mutiny in which the Captain is killed. The survivors abandon the ship in 7 colony pods and are scatter all across Chiron. 7 factions arise UN Command, the survivalist Spartans, the capitalist Morganites, the Technocratic University Sector, the tree hugging Gaians, the ultra communist Human Hive, and the fanatical Believers. After several years each faction has established itself. But violence erupts between the UN and the Spartans. In the war that follows the Spartans lay siege to the UN command and overrun it (anyone familiar with the Illiad and Trojan War will find LOTS of similarities here ie. the UN leader goes to beg the Spartan leader for the body of his son, this is almost exactly like King Priam begging Achilles for Hector's body). The UN is turned into a toothless dog tied up on a short leash.

Dragon Sun

Years later a Planatary Council compromising of 6 of the factions has been established (the Human Hive have not revealed their presence to the other factions yet) has been established. When the Gaian faction makes a discovery about a life force that is awakaning on Chiron the Morganites believe they are trying to hide something from the rest of the factions and along with the Spartans begin a war on flimsy evidence. The Gaians fight back using guerrilla warfare but are being slowly cut to pieces. Inside the Human Hive however a rebellion has began, one that overthrows the tyrannical regem. The Hive makes an alliance with the Gaians and the Morganites and Spartans are forced to end their war and withdraw from Gaian territory.

Twilight of the Mind

A War has erupted between the Believers and University Sector when the Believers try to force their beliefs upon the rest of the planet. Joining in the war against the Believers are the Spartans, UN, Morganites (who themselves are attacked by the Believers) and Gaians. However the Believers fanaticsm proves to much for the Counicil as they employ suicide bombers, human wave attacks, chemical and biological warfare. When University Sector is overrun the Believers aquire a devistating weapon that will render Chiron lifeless. Realizing that the war is turning against them the Believers use this weapon rather then be defeated by those they deem sinful. Before the weapon is used a few hundred people take refugee in a Gaian bunker where they enter cryo-sleep. There with the help of a computer program they will survive for 200 years living inside a paradise created by their minds, well their memories are recorded by the computer as well as there history should any alien civilization discover them after the 200 years. In the end Chiron is rendered lifeless and the last of humanity goes quitly into the dark night of eternity.

BABYLON RISING By Tim Lahaye and Greg Dinallo

First in a new apocalyptic series based on prophecies from the Book of Danial. The main character is an archeologist named Michael Murphy. Murphy aquires an ancient scroll containing the wereabouts of an artifact called "The Brazen Serpent" which was broken into three pieces long ago. Murphy's search takes him from Samaria, to Saudi Arabia, Egypt and finally to post-war Iraq where he will uncover a treasure greater then he could have imagined. Meanwhile media mogul Shane Barrington is forced into the service of a group known as The Seven and through the Seven's agent a ruthless killer named Talon, he is given his instructions. Shane, Talon, and Murphy are all unaware of the Seven's true goal, to see that Babylon is reborn as the greatest, darkest empire the world will ever know.

One day we find out that we're really just some sixth graders science fair experiment, and we're REALLY only microscopic organisms. He decides to clean out his locker and BAM - we're fucked.

So say you know the world is going to end in 24 hours, for whatever reason be it the mole people or attack of the 50ft woman

What would you do with your last 24 hours alive on earth?


Rev_Blair @ Tue Mar 02, 2004 6:11 pm

I'd stare at a lingerie model trying to get her ring out of the floor drain, rescue the ring thus becoming a hero with lingerie model, then drive a bobcat outdoors for a while, then bring the bobcat indoors and do donuts all over the big studio.

Actually, that's what I did today. The world may end any minute.


Evan @ Tue Mar 02, 2004 6:38 pm

last 24 hours on earth? Take out a huge loan and buy a private jet and a ferrai and all that shit and have sex for however long I had left.


Rev_Blair @ Tue Mar 02, 2004 10:06 pm

Obviously you've never driven a bobcat, Evan. :D


nonrev @ Wed Mar 03, 2004 1:28 am

I'd go to Newfoundland to watch the end of the world - it's a half an hour later there....
