Welcome BACK!! Anyway after a depressing NFL day (thanks Bears and JETS) it is time to do a “mini Rant”. Lets get to it:
1) NATIONAL LANGUAGE: So WHY would this be such a bad thing? I recently read a lot of editorials and then LETTERS to my local paper where some people were really upset over this idea. I say take the cover of “racism” out of it. Last time I checked we DO speak ENGLISH here in America. So why would it be SO bad if it was the “OFFICIAL" language of this country? IF you want to live here why would it be so bad to LEARN to speak our language? HOW would doing so somehow “rob” you or an immigrant of their heritage or culture? They can still speak their native tongue and do what they wish. I mean at one point YEARS ago, people from Europe came to America and spoke Italian, German, French, etc..THEN LEARNED ENGLISH.…So why is it such a “hot topic” if we want it as an official language or ask ANY immigrant today to learn it? If I moved right now today to FRANCE, I would need to learn French right? I could not live THERE and bitch at their government as to WHY they do not have bi-lingual signs for me could I? Or claim them to be “racist” because French and not English is the “official” language of their country? Just saying.
2) POPULARITY OF WOLVERINE: Had a cool conversation with ANT about this the other day. WHY does this character resonate SO well with people, especially NON-traditional comic book fans? (Especially in the movies?) Is it because he is played by Hugh Jackman, so chicks dig him? Even my dad who could care less about comics, but loved the X-men/Wolverine movies ALWAYS asks about this one character. It is his favorite and plenty of other people agree. But there are TONS of other “mutant characters”” with interesting powers and other “super heroes”..yet almost everyone thinks Wolverine is “BAD ASS”. A Little dude with claws, healing factor, heightened senses, and bad attitude (yet soft heart) is so great? Cooler than say Superman? (I can sort of see Batman, as on some level people may gravitate towards the “vigilante” or idea that he HAS no powers, yet fights crime so is “close” to reality..) But Wolverine in NONE of these things. Just wondering.
3) DICTATORSHIPS: So what gives? I had a another conversation about this with my Bro this week. (guess I was in my “deep mode”, anyway..) Ever think about HOW this shit happens? I mean aside from military or “might makes right” with weapons…WHY/HOW do these people come to power? WHY does anyone follow them? Hell they are often just ONE dude? So why do lackeys who OUTNUMBER them WITH weapons..follow their orders? (Often doing evil deeds to fellow country people.) Fucking weird when you think about it. I mean if I am with “Dictator A” and say, I am his body guard, why don’t I just shoot him and say..”NOW I am in charge!” I mean who cares? Why would anyone listen to me ANY less than the dude I just shot? He is dead. His regime cannot harm me. Why would they harm me or try to avenge some dude who is dead? (I can see if they wanted to take his spot and rule like I just did) but other then that, why protect or care about them? One dude cannot make war with an entire nation or oppress people. Somehow they convince others of their ideology and methods..and STUPID ass mother fuckers FOLLOW THEM!! WHY? Just one dude. Fuck them. I do not understand. Never will.
4) APPLE IPAD: Good shit. All around I think this is where the future of media, publishing, computers, learning is going. NOW, whether it is on a IPAD..or some other device, that is not up to me, but mark my words..this is where things are going. People like the connivance and simple “touch and go” or DO. No thinking. Just turn it on (not unlike TV) and do stuff. WHAT does bother me, is the same old “geek” or consumer “HATE" towards the product and APPLE. Hey, people. GET A FUCKING GRIP. No one forces you to but them. Stop trying to put down or tell others how they are “fan-boys” or “stupid sheep” for wanting/having one. Or how MUCH better the Android version tablet, or Microsoft, or RIM, or Amazon, or MY DICK..Version is better. WHO THE FUCK CARES? Use what works for you. You know why ASSHOLES? Cuz in about 3 to 5 years YOU too will look dumb as by then technology will be on some NEW next level shit that will make ALL of today’s hot “tablets” look ancient. (But again, if then it still works for ya, rock on!) You get my point.
(Full Disclosure: Yes I DO own one myself. Fucking love the thing. Works perfect for my needs and I have barley scratched the surface of what it can do. Plus has gotten me SO excited over digital comics and books…I know,I know, THAT rant is coming. I promise.)
OKAY! That is all for tonight people. Hope all of you who take the time to visit and read my bullshit have a great WEEK!
PLEASE feel free to comment, complain, spam, or suggest something to me via my CONTACT link/page on my main website at www.fatmanjay.com. Be brave..send a e-mail….I won’t put you on “blast”..or will I???
Received this Trouble Ticket today from work. All is factual and just as I got it. ( I just edited personal info or any other identifying info.)
“problem: I submittied prior technical form for not knowing my user id and password. I applied my userid and password I received from ### and it did not work. jbrown was my user id and ##### did not work as my password. I am thinking I may have another John Brown’s email address. Please forgive my unimaginative parents for giving me the most generic name on the planet.”
That LAST line did it for me. Bravo sir. You made this IT admin smile. Now FUCK YOU for ya attitude. (Plus those parents are probably PAYING for ya school) I am locking out your account smart ass!!
Anyway. I Thought the shit was funny. Sue me. Shit. I HAVE been in front of this fucking computer too long today.
HEY!! Hope You all LIKE the Site redesign, yet again. (If you came here via twitter or tumblr, please go to “www.fatmanjay.com" to see FULL version of site.) But THIS time it is more to MY liking and control. Soon I will add stuff and links too. So stay tuned. Or click around..shoot me a e-mail..what do ya think? Anyway lets get to it!
1) NFL TIME!: YESSS. Waited long enough! time to enjoy and totally waste my Sundays for the next 6 months! Ahh, quite cliche and stereotypical, but Fuck it, I am a FAN! Yes I WILL ge sucked in again by my Bears and JETS.
2) Fro Hawks: How in the HELL did this become “cool” or in “Style” again?? (If ever.) Damn. Kids wear them and so do grown ass men, who then LOOK like dumb ass kids. Please stop. Please.
3) 9-11 tributes: Okay. I get it. Hell I was here IN NY when they occurred. I went in the Army and fought in IRAQ all of 2006 in part because of it. BUT, (Sorry if I offend) But, what I see going on today in sports, TV, newspapers,mags, radio, internet, etc…Seems like BULLSHIT to me. No ONE will ever forget. But it seems like for the sake of ratings the day has been turned into a “Christmas” style type of event with PHONY emotion and HYPE. Maybe it is just me. But I am actually turned off by it. I think TRUE respect and remembrance can be done by the families who lost loved ones or service members who have served and lost something. IN PRIVATE.
4) ICE CUBE IN COORS COMMERCIALS: Come on. Another…. Stop. Please. All cred is lost. Going the route of Samuel L. Jackson. I KNOW cube don’t need the cash THAT bad. Do he?
5) New Superman Revamp by DC: Right. (Sorry to non comic people for forthcoming rant) I call BULLSHIT. Sorry it does not work or wash with me. Just read the issue. This is NOT Superman. It is something “twilight/2000’s/media” bullshit. WHAT THE FUCK WAS WRONG with Supes the way he was? The marriage. No. The powers, beliefs, or costume. Nope. The character would have NOT lasted this long nor been as GLOBALLY popular or recognizable if that was the case. The problem. BAD SUPERMAN STORIES. Period. WHY do they always need to “weaken” Superman? How is he so unrelatable? Why must batman always show him up? Is he too Godlike..Uhmm YEAH. HE IS SUPPOSED to be. HE IS SUPERMAN! Hey writers..WRITE bigger and better challenges for him and his power level. Easy. (Hell what the difference when done for THOR, a GOD, or the HULK in terms of power levels?) You have his “Kansas” upbringing and interaction with Lois to make the “God” HUMAN. STOP writing political views or personal stories that you use the character as your voice. (J.Michael Stracznski I am talking to you.) This has to be one of the SIMPLIST and straight forward of “superheroes”. Everyone can get him and understand/relate. Why make him a dick? Or whatever, they are trying to do now. Man. I blame CREATORS. NOT the creation. I could go on but I may save this for a BIGGER rant on the ”NEW 52 DC”….
6) Kia commercial: The Hamsters are back and thanks to LMFAO..hilarious. Shit is great. I don’t care what you say. (Props to Matt Zolman who also let twitter know of his love for this spot!)
Okay so much for a “Quick Rant”. I’ll try to post more stuff this week. Got some ideas of fellow “Comic Creators” I know I want to give a shout out to. Also in blatant rip off of Peter David, (I do it all the time) I may start posting classic videos from my OLD site that I loved and want to share again. Just cuz I can. So I thank you all who stop by and wish you a great, safe, and productive week ahead! PEACE!
1)Captin America in Avengers:: THIS, THIS..Is Captain America?? (on the web now in Pic from Avengers movie set. I don’t think it is a “Stunt Man”) First off I actually liked the first movie (Sorry ANT). But come on THIS only highlights one of the things that made me mad. HE LOOKS TINY AND WEAK AS SHIT! Also WHAT THE FUCK is up with the “helmut and wings” HOW is THIS a better look than ACTUAL mask and wings coming off head. JESUS!
2) MTV Music Awards:: (Yes I am late. Fuck you. starting site again. Wait till I “rant on current events” Then complain.) SO I gave it a shot this year and WATCHED the whole thing. Huh. Came away with a few facts. First:I am getting Old. I had no clue what the FUCK was going on and who half the people were or why they are “popular”. Second: Most of the artists or songs sucked and the videos were not much better. (Although ADELE album and voice are awesome. Pick up the album if ya can.) Third:WHAT THE HELL is the purpose of the cast of the “Jersy Shore” and HOW on GOD’s earth can they be popular or MAKE MONEY for doing absolutely NOTHING and looking like horrible cartoon characters gone WRONG?? Foruth: This leads me to conclude..yes I am old.
3) Hurricane Emily and People:: Namely how SO many folks here LOST THEIR fucking minds!! Gas lines that were crazy (yeah we really are gonna need that if shit hits the fan. Also here on LI there is only one way out to NY and rest of America. kinda why we area ISLAND. So why all the GAS? So you can survive the gridlock?) Also I love in storms like this how people in stores take on “battle” attitude and “me first” mentality. So sad. Let me tell you, if shit REALLY hit the fan, law and order stand NO chance. Anarchy and old fashioned “ape fighting” will rule the day. Also one final thought. WHY in all storms like this, even snow, do people STOCK UP on EGGS, BREAD, and MILK? Who started THIS madness? I don’t know about YOU, but out of all the FOODS and Drinks I need/want in bad times , EGGS, MILK, and BREAD are NOT on the top of my list. Also ALL OF THOSE ARE QUICKLY perishable!! DUH? Would not raiding/hording CANNED goods make more sense when power is lost? Maybe I am nuts.
Okay enough for tonight. Trying to get warmed up. Full on “Fatman Rants” on multiple or one sigular topics are coming I feel it. But I gotta “ease” my way back into this shit. Anyway…I may soon rant on this “TUMBLR” site shit. Some things about it are already bugging me. (May have to revamp this site AGAIN. Sorry.). Like why the FUCK my picutre inserts got to be so damn big? Whatever.
Big thanks to all who take the time to stop by my insane neck of the “internet”.
Right. So I am up to the SAME shit, in a sort of new way. Hope this works. Will I actually be able to “post” and put up better/More frequent info?? Well we shall see.
SO bear with me ONCE again as I start to fuck around and change stuff!
I apologize to anyone who actually tried visiting this site recently. Man it has SUCKED BALLS. But work and life, (but mainly work) has taken up 99% of my time lately and I just did not have JACK shit to post.
So I hope with the new site/format, I can start doing a little more. (Also hope the NEW IPAD helps too.) I will try to have more posts or “Shorter” RANTS!
STILL FULL OF PROFANITY. Just letting you all know…..
