Spike Jonze and Kanye West "We Were Once A Fairytale" (short film 11 mins)

In my opinion, it's an interesting commentary on fame and humanity.

The struggles of a graphic designer in cartoon form

So I was going through youtube the other day and I found these animated shorts that depict the relationship between graphic designer and client. The fucked up thing is as off the wall as some of the back and forth is. There ISN'T much exaggeration at all. I've heard and been asked all these things before throughout my career. Oh yeah if you click on the vids and either remember saying something one of the clients in the vids said or don't see anything wrong... find the nearest cliff and proceed to jump the hell off. Please and thank you. The world will be a better place.

Warriors come out and plaaaaaaaay!!!!

So I was watching a show on the Spike channel (Think Lifetime if it were meant for men) entitled Deadliest Warrior. On the show they basically go through out time and pick 2 different warriors and put them against each other. This is done by getting experts in the particular warrior's fighting style along with the warior's historic weapons and running tests. After the tests are run basically they decide who wins by which one inflicted the most damage. It's a pretty decent show...though I often feel it could be biased and naive at times.

Anywho...The show always concludes with this mock batle between the two warriors. The one I happened to be watching was the Apache Indian VS. The Gladiator. The Apache won and scalped the gladiator...and after he scalped the Gladiator he licked the knife he used.


I mean don't get me wrong. That shit looks pretty cool. But I remember stories of disease ridden Europeans coming to the states. It just had me thinking...

Like could you imagine being the Apache warrior that got a std after doing that shit...

Apache warrior: Baby I swear I ain't been fucking nobody baby...Naw...I got it from licking knives...What you mean that's some buffalo shit??
