HOLY MILEY CYRUS! I found some cool earthquake footage on YouTube; the just experienced temblor we had here in Southern California on Tuesday!
Some dude during an interview:
This weather girl stayed cool and calm:
Another newscast in progress, with a silly interruption (not just from the quake):
Judge Judy was taping, and she said F*CK THIS:
A little more of Judge Judy and the reaction of the Big Brother cast:
Orange County meeting gets a scare:
I recently met this very attractive gay couple who have been together for quite some time, and one of the dudes is American, of Italian/Hispanic descent, the other gentleman is from the very sensual erotic country of Brazil! I always write about dying to go to Spain or France, but you can add Portugal or Brazil to that list as well. As a Latino, I can say sexuality is a very important part of our genetic make-up, but I'd dare say that Brazilians ooze it out even more so. They seem to be a very liberal and highly sexual culture. As a native speaker of Spanish and lots of French, I can understand some Portuguese here and there, but I still have a long way to go. It is quite an interesting and beautiful language, one that Brazilians are very protective and proud of. I mean, not only do they have the worldwide dominance of English to face, but even more dominant is Spanish, which surrounds them at every corner in South America. Sadly, Brazil has high poverty/crime/HIV rates, but it would be a fascinating amazing place to visit/discover someday. The men and women are simply beautiful; Afro-Portuguese mix. Of course, all I need is plenty of time and money to go there. DAMN.
The Olympic Games are about to begin next week. I'm kind of excited not just because of the competition itself, but the host country this time around is truly controversial! China of all places?! CHINA! Communist, overpopulated, polluted China!
This my friends, will be very very interesting.

We got lucky. This time.

How was your weekend? I had a very very nice one thank you. I watched this movie with Fanny Ardant, who is probably my favorite French actress of all time! The movie's called Nathalie, about a woman who tests her husband's fidelity by hiring a stripper. The woman playing the stripper is a very sensual-looking actress named Emmanuelle Béart. I totally dug her look in the film! She's quite magnetic on screen; a very beautiful woman in my opinion. The film moved slow, but had my attention somehow. No, I still haven't yet seen The Dark Knight, but I will sometime this week, to finally see just what everyone else is raving about. This movie is making loads and loads of cash, enough to feed several Third World countries!
I think Obama is very charismatic, but I just don't worship or adore the man as others do so blindly it seems. Americans and the world entire love the man as if he were Jesus or something! His tour of Europe just recently was an enormous success; received/admired as they would a pop/rock star or something. It's Obamamania man! Hmmm. Something to perhaps consider although it may be far-fetched and ridiculous, but what if Obama is the Antichrist? We're not that far from 2012 are we? He has so many in his firm popular grip! The man can say or do no wrong! He speaks well, but does he really have the necessary plan/actions to help us out of the economic mess we find ourselves in? I dunno man. Something weird is a'brewin' here and I can't quite put my finger on it. We'll just have to wait and see...
Karaoke Monday tonight at my local bar. It should be very fun.

Tension at the office yesterday on many levels. Two of the white women here have been throwing attitude at each other for weeks now, and one of them has had it and confronted the other one and blah blah BLAH! F*CK! It all happened near my cubicle, but don't get me involved! Secondly, two fairly new employees here were asking my other bud about my sexual orientation. I told him to just tell 'em the truth, "Yes, he f*cks men." There. End of story. It would help if they just came and asked me to be quite honest. Whatever. People always wanting to know where one's genitals go. UGH. Lucky straights that don't have to come out right? Everyone assumes that everybody is naturally straight!
I dunno man. I often get the lame feeling that hetero people never really ACCEPT us, but merely tolerate us just to make things work. TOLERANCE. What a cheap shitty cop-out concept. My mother tolerates me, but does she really ACCEPT me? Not very likely. I hate that feeling. Yeah, most heteros who know I'm gay will still deal with me and shit, but I often get the horrible sense that they don't really get it, nor do they want to. I always feel like an outcast around them to be quite honest. May be just my issues/cynicism/bitterness talking, but that's how I feel. Yeah, that young sweet boy/girl couple out in public holding hands. UGH! IT MAKES ME CRINGE! Worse yet, when they're out pushing a baby carriage! Ye freakin' breeders making more children to tax our precious resources only helping to bring about global warming at a faster rate! ARGH! I know, I know, I'm a bit heterophobic. I should at least acknowledge that it is due to straight people that gay people exist right? They made us! All of this is too ironic at times.
I'm gonna make sure I have a nice weekend regardless. Sir Paul McCartney played a concert to some 200,000 fans in Québec to celebrate the city's 400th anniversary this past week! WOW! I missed it! Je suis très désolé! Grandpa apparently still has it.

It was almost soured however, by two Hispanic petty mean catty gay men I ran into. One of them said to me that I obviously did not work out because I’m skinny. “Nothing wrong with that,” he said, “but you’re skinnier than me.” His pecs were huge and looked bizarre against his much smaller frame. Another gay dude that is very dark due to his African-Brazilian mix, said he disliked Argentines because he found them racist and pompous. “They think they’re so special because they’re of European descent and they’re not very nice, I seem to have lots of problems with them!” I said, “Really? Argentines are very nice to me, I get along with them fine.” He replied, “That’s because you’re light! Look at yourself! They like you because you’re white like them. They’re racist!” The low self-esteemed dark young man then proceeded to tell me all about the recent college course he’d taken on Latin American history. He was trying to show off his recently-learned knowledge on a subject I’ve been reading about and studying for years and he was taken aback when I was able to talk to him about the Treaty of Tordesillas and the invasion of
My mother and brother were nice to take me out to eat to The Cheesecake Factory for my birthday. It takes forever to get a table, but it’s worth the wait. The restaurant is beautiful and the food is delicious. And that cheesecake! OF COURSE! DAMN! SO GOOD! My buds and I went to see Hellboy 2: The Golden Army last night. It was so enjoyable and I’m sorry many more won’t be seeing it due to the enormous popularity of the Batman film. A crazy movie with terrific acting and stunning visuals! Mexican director Guillermo Del Toro is a genius! The new Spielberg/Lucas of our time! The action was non-stop! FOUR STARS LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! The critics are right! I liked the original, but this one was so much better, in my humble opinion. The film had such an interesting social commentary as well, on whether humans are worth saving due to our wicked destructive nature. Right up my alley!
You must see this on a big screen. I’m serious.

I want to thank each and every one of you who stops by to read and most especially those who take the time to comment on my silly rants! It means a lot to me that my words or thoughts put forth on cyberspace here are actually taken into consideration by other fellow readers/bloggers. Thank you again. ¡Muchas gracias! Merci beaucoup! I've had writer's block from time to time, but there is always something interesting to discuss or talk about and I hope that you have learned something as I have from you on all kinds/sorts of topics. There is nothing that I won't expose or discuss, and I thank you for your open minds and apologize for anything I may have said at any point that may have offended or insulted any sensibilities out there. I mean, life is anything but boring right? There's always something to post about! As long as I continue to breathe and have decent health, I hope to be able to update this little blog as often as possible. Suggestions for topics/subjects to discuss are always welcome by the way! FER SURE DUDE! LIKE TOTALLY GIRL!
The goal of this blog has always been to entertain, educate, inform, and perhaps offer a glimpse into the madness that is WAT. And by the way, I have used hundreds of pictures from other sources, so I'd like to take the time to give them credit for making my blog look nice and colorful. Aside from this being a big weekend with regards to WAT CENTRAL'S FOURTH ANNIVERSARY and festivities taking place around the world to celebrate such a big superstar event, it is also my 24th birthday tomorrow (give or take about a decade)!!! IRONY! Here's to many more years of this utter and completely pointless nonsense! Till death, nuclear terrorism, or 2012 due us part...
The reviews for The Dark Knight are phenomenal, and I almost cannot believe this movie is that good! Sounds like a bunch of hype to me, and they're talking of Heath Ledger's performance as if it were the Second Coming. I'm willing to bet the praise is due to Heathy being dead frankly. He can't be THAT good! But I will have to check it out to see if all these accolades are true or not, but I will wait till the crowds die down. The money this movie will generate is certain to be extraordinary.
I gotta say though, knowing Heath is dead makes me very sad at times.

They strictly prohibited cameras/flash photography, yet tons of people still snuck in their devices in and snapped away! ARGH! I should've had my escort hide the camera up his ass or something, but we were stupid in being honest. I could've gotten some pretty cool shots, although most of the time I got to look at the group members and their backs/asses. Maybe not such a bad angle after all! Some pics of the event by our local newspaper here. Anyway, the massive black drape behind the stage obstructed my view of Will Champion (who is the drummer), for most of the show. This had me very bummed, as I thought the stage would not be blocked and open for all to see regardless. On top of having a somewhat blocked view of the stage and not having a camera, the show started at 9:30p.m. and ended just 90 minutes later! 90 MINUTES?! WAHAT?! With four studio albums, you mean to tell me there isn't enough material there to do a whole 2-hour show at least?! The Forum as a venue needs to be demolished. It's so old and worn down. You can see it in the walls for Christ's sake and it's not in a very nice part of town anyway. UGH! Out of four stars, the Coldplay show gets two and a half my friends. I'm sure those with amazing seats and awesome pics thought differently. The band played well, but so many things didn't go as I expected, so yes, I am bummed. Reviews of the show are here.
Sorry to have put some of you through the horror of that suicide clip in my last post, but I laughed out loud at your reactions to it; those of you who thought you could handle it but almost fainted like I did. I seriously did laugh hysterically, but fear not! The devastating mental image goes away in about one or two days. LOLOLOL! I did warn ye did I not? I know one must try to be as optimistic and positive a person, but this blog can sometimes be a bit depressing or too realistic perhaps for some to handle. Life just isn't always rosy folks.
But stay cool, smile, and enjoy la vida it for all it's worth! Here's hoping our banking system doesn't collapse a la 1929!

This article from the United Kingdom is very well written. Juicy details and some neat photos! Check it out if you're curious about Madonna's brother and his new tell-all book. You might not have to even buy it after reading this:
I watched a very disturbing clip on Saturday. It almost made me pass out quite frankly, which is good news, for it means I am not desensitized to violence and still care. Budd Dwyer was some politician facing serious charges and prison time on corruption charges and decides to blow his brains out in front of a press conference! I'd never heard of this incident at all, which happened some 20 years ago already! It inspired this hit 90s song by the group Filter. Anyway... WARNING! EXTREMELY GRAPHIC FOOTAGE! I REPEAT. EXTREMELY GRAPHIC FOOTAGE! DO NOT WATCH THIS IF YOU ARE SENSITIVE TO THE FINAL MOMENTS OF A MAN'S LIFE AND HEAVY CRANIAL BLEEDING! LOL! YOU'RE SUPER CURIOUS NOW AND YOU'RE GONNA WATCH IT ANYWAY AREN'T YOU? I WARNED YOU:
With that lovely footage, how about some Coldplay in honor of my concert tonight?

-Gas'll be even more ridiculously expensive.
-The U.S. will be more hated than we are now; we'll be abhorred and loathed by the world.
-Israel could lose a major city, and my guess is Tel Aviv will be attacked relentlessly.
-Terrorism against the West will get worse.
-Worldwide consequences of this type of action would be dire.
So what if Iran is nuclear? Can they actually be that stupid to attack Israel without expecting an attack right back that would kill their own Iranian people as well? I just don't believe we should attack them first. It will make us look terrible and as the instigators! We're stuck in Afghanistan and Iraq as is! WE CANNOT AFFORD MORE WAR! WE JUST CANNOT! AMERICA IS NOT THE INVINCIBLE COCKY EMPIRE IT THINKS IT IS! If Bush and crew actually go ahead with something so preposterous, I can actually envision citizens storming the White House! Pray my little ones! I fear...
And last but not least, Madonna's drug addict washed-up brother Christopher is getting a lot of press for his new upcoming scathing book on his slutty mean egomaniac sister. I can't believe how ugly Chris is now! He used to be so cute! I feel guilty, but I'm dying to read the book now! LOL! Besides, Madonna can never suffer from negative press attention right? She built her career on it!

And here's the latest SPIN magazine online with Coldplay. Pretty cool.
