What is wrong with the Philidelphia police?

Saturday, May 3rd, 2008

My brother just wrote a post on his blog, The Poverty Jet Set, about some gang related violence near his new home. Apparently a white SUV (OJ Simpson!) ran over some kid on purpose and then a bunch of other kids (”friends” maybe) dragged the semi-conscious kid away.

My brother called 911 twice and they didn’t even send someone over to investigate… I guess they just passed it off as gang violence and they gave up before they even left the station.

Anyways, read the whole story straight from my brothers hands here: http://thepovertyjetset.com/2008/05/03/a-view-of-the-park/

It will tick you off probably. I know it made me mad.

Review - Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

Friday, May 2nd, 2008

~WARNING! I MAY NOT RUIN THE STORY, BUT I’M NOT VERY CAREFUL IN HIDING PLOT TWISTS~

I just recently watched an anime series called Code Geass. I wasn’t all that sure of what I was getting into at the time, I just thought that it was going to be some kind of super hero type story.
As it turns out, Code Geass is one serious drama. I’m not talking about romantic drama either. I’m talking about the kind of drama where you can’t be guaranteed that any one character will survive up to and after the end credits of the last episode. Actually, you can feel almost confident that they WON’T survive if they have any sort of romantic feelings. The stronger the romantic feelings, the worse that person’s fate. (more…)

FLORIDA!

Thursday, May 1st, 2008

I’m leaving for Florida today!!! The drive down is always more enjoyable than the drive back, memories of Waffle House and Daft Punk blasting in the car are coming to mind…(My brother insists that we play Daft Punk whenever we see the Welcome to Florida sign, not too sure why though.

We have some shows to play with the band and some surfing to do! The weekend surf report isn’t looking too good though, so I’m bringing my skateboard along.

Well, we’ll chat when I get back…while I’m away, you should probably vote for VQ or George Washington to win ;)

God bless you, PEACE!

Election ‘08: Polls Those Washington Fat Cats don’t Want You to See

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

I spend a lot of time working with kids (K - 5th grade) during the day, and today we held an impromptu presidential poll in the computer room, the results of which may surprise you:

Yeah, that’s George Washington.

Here are some of the riveting comments from the future of our nation on why they support the people they do.

Clinton:

“She’s cool.”
“Obama hates America.”
“She would be the first girl.”

McCain:

“He’s not Hillary or Obama.”
“He has good ideas.”

Obama:

“He’d lower gas prices.”
“He’d stop the war.”
“Hillary’s ugly, and John McCain is stupid and ugly.”
“He’d be the first brown president.”
“He looks cute.” I heard this from a lot of kids.

And the most powerful reason I heard in support of Obama
“Cause my mommy go Bama.”

Me:

“He’s the best!”
“He’s as close to perfect as possible!”
“He’s the new Lincoln!”*

*Note: None of the kids actually said this, but I figured they would have.

What do you think? Let your voice be heard.

Seth Franco!!!

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

I was just searching for friends on YouTube and found a family friend. He’s the second white Harlem Globetrotter in history.

Actually, a couple years ago Seth and my brothers and I were playing some pick up basketball @ Flushing Park in Queens NY (this was about a year before he was a Globetrotter). I watched Seth whoop up on 5 guys single handedly!!! It was awesome, to say the least. You can check out his website here. Keep up the good work Seth!!!

My first set of Rambling Thoughts - Takahashi Rumiko

Sunday, April 27th, 2008

I’m currently working on two projects right now. One is a Flash site for NewThink, a small design/development company in LA. And the other is my weekly post for our main site… this week I’m it’s on Joints and Forces in Box2DFlash.

Still, I find myself daydreaming a lot while I’m writing code and I tend to slip in some reading every now and then. I’m studying Japanese right now (listening to Pimsleur while typing this) and I hope to visit Japan in the not TOO distant future.
