PC police...

"If we can put a man on the moon, we can put a man with AIDS on the moon. Then, someday, we can put everyone with AIDS on the moon." SS.

Just randomly watched an episode of the Sarah Silverman Program. Might have to download them all simply based on that one line.

May I make an observation...

I've finally gotten around to sending some pictures from my cell phone to my computer. I was really surprised with the size and quality of the pictures. Kinda makes me wish I used my phone to take a lot more pictures of stupid shit.
This is probably the manliest sign I've ever seen outside a men's bathroom. I felt super-hetero walking in there...
Keeping to a toilet related theme, this truck was on the edge of Olympic Park. It was kinda like a play area for kids. Children here love shit, as you can see by the dude's hat and his finely tailored Brutus The Barber Beefcake styled pants. Ddong, as you know, means shit. '97 was a good year for feces here in S-K.
I went to one of the many Woodstock bars with a friend. This particular one was in Sincheon (near Jamsil) and the place was empty. We sat around for about five minutes contemplating stealing guitar amps when finally the bartender arrived. Turns out he was the owner and he played. He plugged in his guitar, turned on some amps, and finally put on his aviator sunglasses. Then he played a few tunes, the best one being a song titled "Michelle" that is about a foreign girl he has a crush on.

This dude was about 50 years old. He didn't look it.

He tried to call Michelle and get me to talk to her but thankfully she never picked up. After that me and him jammed for half an hour or so switching from drums to bass (he had no electric guitar there). Decent laugh, but our styles didn't mix too well. I'd like to back sometime with an electric and blow a few of his amps some night.
This is a homeless guy I saw. He was walking up the sidewalk and suddenly stopped and started talking to the ground. One of the few times I really wish I spoke Korean.
Now, back to the theme. Me and Matt were out around not drinking one night and came across this in one of the subway stations near Olympic Park. Can't remember the station name right now. Anyway, I didn't have to piss but I made the extra effort to use "Seoul Best Toilet 2000." The effort was definitely worth it.

Just a little sidenote. I'm gonna go to Beijing for a few days during Christmas with my cuz Karen and some of her co-workers. It's gonna be freezing there but the trip is cheap and there's just about no way it won't be interesting. China kinda mildly scares the hell outta me for some reason.

Maybe it has something to do with that one stray hair on the chin of the old lady who worked at the Tai Lee Family Restaurant in Dar Lake. The one 12 millimeter hair that was always there until one day I found a black 12 millimeter hair in my Chi-Besso.

Valid reason to fear a country if there ever was one right?

Jake's truck jump...

Me and Matt were drunk one night surfing the internet. We ended up on Youtube and I felt this was worth sharing. It's only 9 seconds long.

And you can thank me for saving you a lot of time later. This is the best truck jump on the net so look no further.

The internet makes me dumb...

I was just surfing the net and ended up reading the side effects of some prescription drug. These are some of the things you don't want to happen if you take it.

...nervousness, nausea, dry mouth, diarrhea headache, drowsiness.

Hold on a second there. Diarrhea headache?? What in the hell is a diarrhea headache??

I hope I never find out...

Hello lasik...

Yesterday was Friday and it was a school holiday. In all of his glory, the principal planned a big outing that day for the teachers. Most teachers just wanted to stay home because these outing are a 12 hour ordeal. I was willing to do that stuff last year but this year I feel much less inclined to participate so I needed an out.

I found it.

I made an appointment at the Dream Eye Center in Myeongdong. I've been thinking about getting the laser surgery to correct my vision so this is the first step. You have to find out if you're eligible for the surgery by under going numerous tests during first consultation. If all goes well, you can then make your appointment anytime after.

I went there at 2:00 and was out by 4:00. First, they did a number of regular vision tests, then some stranger ones. They tested me for astigmatism, cornea thickness, pupil size, cornea symmetry, eye pressure, and some other things I don't remember the names of.

They put a two different drops in my eyes. One drop was an anesthetic which enabled her to poke at my eyes with a pencil-like machine to test for some crap. The other drops inhibited my pupils from working so they were really dilated. Again, this allowed them to do some other tests that I can't explain.
I looked like this for about seven hours after the tests. It didn't matter if I was in a dark room or light room, my eyes looked like this.

My vision was also blurry for a few hours and that's normal. I could barely read text's messages on my phone, and texting has become an integral part of my life these days. How lame is that?

Anyway, all is well with my eyes. My cornea kicks some serious ass with it's thickness, and my pupils are well above average size. This isn't really a good thing for the surgery because it means the results will be better if they use the "Wavefront" machine for my surgery. This cost's a little extra money, but I'll be able to see through girls shirts so it'll be worth it.

So here's what they're gonna do to me when I go through with the surgery. You can click the numbers and it shows you the steps. They say it's pain free and it takes just a few hours to heal. Technologay is awesome... I think...

Yeah, and you know what they say about guys with big pupils.

The Sensuous Black Woman Meets the Sensuous Black Man...

Check this out (click it!) even if you don't like hip hop.

Skip to the middle of the page for the good shit.

Big Bear is definitely my favorite.

Don't try to tell that this isn't the best thing you've ever seen. He got pimped out bears on his album cover! That is brilliant, and I don't even like bears one bit. I've compared bears to terrorists in the past, but that viewpoint may well soon change.

I'm downloading this as we speak...
