Painful Semester

My worst complaint about college isn't the work, it's the stupidity. I'm surrounded by idiots. These snot-nosed, pimple-faced brats run at the mouth not having a clue of what they're talking about. And the professors are so useless. They don't teach, they just stand up front and let the morons speak.

The problem is this Socratic method movement. It's the worst thing to happen to the American education system. Every teacher wants to be contemporary and not teach like their professors did. Gone are the times of the lecture, now it's all about open discussion. Yes it was done sucessfully by the likes of Socrates, but it's not done right nowadays. Professors are to allow the students to participate, while keeping control of the topic. Yes, professors let us talk, but they don't add they're expertise anymore. The class just becomes a student forum.

I didn't pay $900 to hear a bunch of morons tell me what they think of the world, I want to hear something substantial. So it's either that the professors are lazy, or that they don't know the subject that they're supposed to be teaching. Any way, I want my money back.


I bet your first day on the job wasn't this bad. video

Quick Movie Review: Hotel Rwanda C-

Hotel Rwanda was nominated for a Golden Globe for best picture and I gotta say I don't see why. It wasn't that good at all. The acting performances were terrible outside of the two leads (Don Cheadle, Sophie Okonedo). And I'm glad that they are each being recognized with Oscar nominations. But the movie was made really badly. The script was bad. The dialogue was dry. It was so melodramatic that any emotion was gone. So why are all the critics going crazy for it?

People like this movie because of its historical importance. In 1994 one million people did die in Rwanda. And not one major news agency in the west reported it. Americans were caught up with the OJ trial at the time. Maybe people feel bad that they were part of the reason why these people died and say the movie was good. The movie is important, but not good.

Farewell Johnny

Johnny Carson has died and apparently, I'm supposed to really care about it. I'm sure the guy has done a lot for pop-culture, but I never saw his show. I guess my generation is going to feel the same way when Leno or Letterman dies. Rest in peace.

News Article To Read For The Week

I know you'd rather have your eyes clawed out by an enraged mountain lion than read a newspaper article but if you read one this week, read this one.

Don't Know Much About Algebra

Lawrence Summers, the president of Harvard, has been pilloried for suggesting that women may be biologically unsuited to succeed at mathematics.

He may have a point. Just look at Condoleezza Rice.

She's clearly a well-educated, intelligent woman, versed in Brahms and the Bolsheviks, who has just been rewarded for her loyalty with the most plum assignment in the second Bush cabinet.

Yet her math skills are woefully inadequate.

She can't do simple equations. She doesn't even know that X times zero equals zero. If you multiply 1,370 dead soldiers times zero weapons of mass destruction, that equals zero achievement for Ms. Rice, who helped the president and vice president bamboozle the country into war. (rest of article)

Moss Reacts

A couple of days ago I posted the story about Randy Moss simulating a moon to the Green Bay crowd. Since then my opinion of his actions has changed slightly. I still think that it was inappropriate, but I learned about a little tradition in Green Bay. The Packers fans are known for mooning the visiting team's bus. Moss was just getting them back. It doesn't totally justify what he did, but it certainly puts it into perspective.

The best part of this whole story was Moss's reaction to being fined $10,000 by the NFL. Here check it out

Ali G Clips

I put together a couple of my favorite clips from the first season. When I have more time, I'm going put together a longer piece. check it out

Top Ten Films Of 2004

10. Aviator - Not Scorsese's best, but damn worth watching.

9. Maria Full of Grace - This story of a South American girl who gets into drug trafficking is good because its so rich in emotion. You really feel the suspense in this one.

8. Hero - The most beautifully shot movie of the year. Many viewers are turned off by the patience that the director takes in telling his story. But the pace was necessary for the unraveling of the plot.

7. Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind - A real mind trip. Those guys really captured the feeling of a troubled mind. And Jim Carrey held it down. Too bad they released it so early in the year, it could've been a real Oscar contender.

6. Kill Bill Vol.2 - Action-packed. Great follow-up to Vol. 1. In a time when forced sequels are flooding the market it's great to see a true continuation (or pre-quel) of a great original.

5. Ray - The best biopic I've seen in a long time. The music alone is enough to enjoy the film. Jamie Foxx was so good as Mr. Charles that I forgot that I was watching an actor protraying the legend as opposed to seeing the singer himself. Kudos to Foxx for every award he will receive for his performance

4. Collateral - the coolest suspense thriller of the year. And Tom Cruise turns into a real bad ass. And we see another great performance from Jamie Foxx. Foxx's character could've easily been a wash out and stand in the shadow of Cruise's villain, but he brings so much humanity to the screen that you couldn't help but think that Cruise's villain would not have been able to have the impact that it had.

3. Fahrenheit 9/11 - I don't care what people have told you about this movie. If you haven't seen it, you don't know it. No movie has ever moved me like this one. I didn't give a fuck about what was happening outside of Wellington much less overseas in Iraq. And just for that everyone who had something to do with this movie should be applauded. The best documentary I've ever seen.

2. Closer - Raw. Unashamedly raw. The best movie about relationships that I've ever seen. Ever. If you I can't convince you to go to the theater, at least rent it as soon as it comes out.

1. Sideways - What a great movie. Why can't 50 of these come out every year. Any filmmaker want to learn how to make an enjoyable just watch Sideways and take some notes.

*update - I know the texts are few following the movies. The reason is that they are not meant to be reviews but merely notes. But I've added more to some of the movies.

What A Piece Of Ass: Teri Hatcher

Teri Hatcher is probably the hottest woman over 40 (41 to be exact). Thank god for modern technology or whatever else is responsible for her agelessness. Her career is hotter than ever too. Desperate Housewives is the hottest show on tv. And she picked up a Golden Globe on Sunday confirming herself as a bonafide comeback kid.

Check her out in this month's issue of FHM magazine.

Tickle Me

Axe bodyspray has this new campaign. But forget about the deodorant, the Axe feather chick is hot. Go ahead and tickle her. here

*update - if you tickle her knee, she'll go into a second position. When the second position is reached, hit X and Y for two secret reactions.

Bad Boy Prince Harry

This kid is a real piece of work.

LONDON (AFP) - Britain's Prince Harry sparked fury after being photographed in a Nazi military outfit, drawing calls at home and abroad for a public apology from the young royal with a track record of embarrassing public gaffes.

The photograph, captured on the cover of the best-selling daily tabloid The Sun and picked up by media around the world, was published just a fortnight before the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the former Nazi death camp at Auschwitz.

Harry appears in the shot slouched in the khaki uniform of Rommel's Afrika Korps, complete with red swastika armband, as well as a drink and cigarette in hand.

What makes matters worse is that the royal family is trying to separate itself from it's German past, probably so people won't think about the fact that their family is ruling another country. That kid is an idiot.

Borat Almost Causes A Riot

Borat is at it again.

LONDON (Reuters) - British comedian Sasha Baron Cohen escaped a near-riot at an American rodeo while filming his satirical "Da Ali G Show."

According to a report in the Roanoke (Virginia) Times, a man who was introduced as Boraq Sagdiyev from Kazakhstan -- in reality a Cohen character named Borat -- appeared at the rodeo over the weekend after organizers agreed to have him sing the national anthem.

After telling the crowd he supported America's war on terrorism, he said, "I hope you kill every man, woman and child in Iraq (news - web sites), down to the lizards ... And may George W. Bush drink the blood of every man, woman and child in Iraq." He then sang a garbled version of "The Star-Spangled Banner." Reuters

I can't wait for the next season. Yagshemesh!

Odd Story of The Month

A JILTED girl tore off her ex-boyfriend's testicle with her bare hands - then popped it in her mouth, a court heard yesterday.
Amanda Monti, 24, grabbed Jeffrey Jones, 37, by the genitals in a rage after he refused to have sex.

She ripped off his left testicle leaving him in "excruciating pain". Monti, just 5ft 2in, then put it in her mouth to hide it.

The testicle was later found by a pal of Mr Jones who handed it back, saying: "That's yours." Doctors were unable to re-attach it.

The victim told Liverpool Crown Court how he had earlier ended their relationship but Monti refused to accept it.

After a party at his home in Netherton, she wanted sex but he was not interested. There was a struggle and she ripped off his shorts leaving him in his pants.

He said: "She grabbed my genitals and pulled hard. I noticed my underpants had come off and I was in excruciating pain."

Monti, of Birkenhead, admitted unlawful wounding but said she had little memory of what happened. She will be sentenced later.

Moss Showing His Whole Ass

Randy Moss is coming under fire for simulating pulling his pants down and mooning the crowd after a touchdown yesterday. It was wrong and he's an idiot. Athletes these days make me sick. They all act like they're still in college. No grown man should be acting like that and I hope they fine his ass. Pun very much intended. full story

#1 From Start To Finish

The USC Trojans kicked Oklahoma's ass last night and put to rest any doubt that they are the best team in college foosball. Maybe Auburn could've come a little closer but they wouldn't have beat USC. And the good thing for the Trojans (bad for everyone else) is that more than half of their starters probably will be coming back next year, including Heisman Trophy winner Matt Leinart. I don't see why next year will be better than this one.

A few celebs made it to the game. Will Ferrell, Shaq, and Diddy were all there.

And it didn't take long for Diddy to find the cheerleaders' section. Horny bastard.

Ashlee 'Texas Jig' Simpson was one of the performers at the halftime show. Her dumb ass got booed the whole time. AP Story

Back To The Plantation

Spring semester starts tomorrow. Winter break just isn't long enough. Hopefully I'll be done with PBCC by the end of summer. Then it's off to the big university to finalize my citizen brainwashing. Just two more years of establishment professors telling me how I'm supposed to view the world. Then I'll enter corporate America and serve out my sentence in the "real" world prison. Only to retire when I'm 70 living off the scraps left from the tattered social security system and die as penniless as I was when I was born. God Bless the USA!


Yo check it. Yall fools beta rekanize, Da Ali G Show is the shiznit. If you haven't seen the best show on HBO yet, you better get with it. You can get the First Season DVD from your video store, or see reruns of the second season on HBO. Here are a couple of clips.

I'll have the Best Movies of 2004 soon (still have a few more to watch).

Happy New Year (At least for us that is)

We made it through another year. But more than 150,000 people on Saturday night thought that they would make it too, and now they're gone. More than a million people are now homeless who had homes on Christmas morning.

You're thinking it's a tragedy, but you can do something about it if you would like. I donated and it didn't take more than 3 minutes. I donated to the American Red Cross but here are some other charities too (all good).
