you look wonderful tonight

I was at a bbq and there was a guy playing this Eric Clapton song on a guitar for his girlfriend. He could neither sing or play the guitar and it was painful to see and hear. Thinking about it reminded me of this video:

I would vote for that – why not another inanimate object as a figurehead.

Shops of Dublin

very clever, this is what it has come to

Declan McCormac’s ‘Shops of Dublin’ entry:

“The Ireland of today is still marketed as the land of Joycean splendor and unique indigenous character, but as I sat in a pub looking at the assorted prefabricated tat on the wall, an old crumpled yellowed poster of the ‘shops
of Dublin’ struck me as particularly out of time with the old wooden facades, family names and individual character, this inspired me to create my own modern (and in my opinion) accurate ‘Shops of Dublin’ postcard from
Dublin – I am a Dubliner and this is my Dublin.

jesse’s den

Fever Ray “If I had a heart” on Breaking bad. Watching this literally gave me the shakes. Jesse is working in an industrial meth lab and has money to burn. He invited people to his house in an earlier episode and it is has turned into a permanent drug party. He did it to feel something or to feel alive.

oh fuck

Not much going on to report at the moment. My days are filled with successfully not finding a real job and gambling on the stock market (or whatever is left of it). I may aswell throw away my Euros as soon they will be worthless.

A guy whose newsletter I read says this on a daily basis:

What is starting here is Grand Supercycle degree wave {IV} down after a Broadening Ascending Wedge of massive scale completed at the May highs. This should be a Bear Market for the ages, a calamitous Great Economic Depression.

They way I picture it soon hordes of zombies will walk the earth searching out peoples stash of precious metals and tinned beans.

Desperate French actor Depardieu urinates on plane

on the way to Ireland no less. It makes Neil Prenderville look tame:

PARIS — France’s biggest film star Gerard Depardieu was thrown off a plane after urinating in front of fellow passengers when cabin crew refused to let him use the bathroom.
The 62-year-old actor was caught short on a delayed flight from Paris to Dublin on Tuesday evening as the jet taxied, but his demands to be allowed out of his seat fell on deaf ears, according to another traveler speaking to French radio station Europe 1 on Wednesday morning.
“Je veux pisser, je veux pisser,” implored Depardieu, according to Daniele, who was among the 127 passengers on board the Air France jet left reeling by the antics of the giant of the French screen.
“The attendant said ‘I’m sorry, you’ll have to wait fifteen minutes, [when] we’ll be in flight. The toilets are locked,’” Daniele added. Depardieu said he could not wait, unzipped his pants and reportedly proceeded to urinate on the carpet.
“You could tell he’d been drinking,” the disgusted passenger claimed.
However, friends of the bon vivant actor, speaking on condition of anonymity, told AFP he said he was “absolutely not drunk” and was actually trying to pee into a bottle as privately as possible.
They confirmed the witness’ account that the stewardess had asked him to wait 15 minutes before the toilets would be opened, and said he had agreed, but added that the flight had then been delayed a further 20 minutes.
A flying companion, fellow actor Edouard Baer, then offered him an empty bottle to ease his aching bladder, AFP said.
When some urine spilled onto the floor, Depardieu was “mortified,” according to a friend and offered to clean it up himself, but the crew decided to turn round and taxi back to the terminal, where he was escorted off the jet by ground crew, the friends said.
The jet was delayed for over an hour as ground crew cleaned up the mess. Depardieu left the plane along with his two traveling companions and their luggage.
“No charges were brought and no fine was imposed, and he had the impression that his position about the misunderstanding and the inflexible attitude of the stewardess had been understood by those he spoke to,” one friend told AFP.
The source also said Depardieu had been able to take the next flight to Dublin.
Air France confirmed the incident took place in a statement Wednesday, saying, Depardieu “did indeed urinate in the aircraft.”
Depardieu, arguably France’s most celebrated living actor, has enjoyed a career spanning four decades and well over a hundred films. He is best known outside France for the film “Green Card,” for which he won a Golden Globe best actor award.
The actor was traveling to Ireland to film scenes for his upcoming movie “Asterix and Obelix: God Save Britannia.”
Depardieu prides himself on his reputation as a bon viveur but has often admitted that he drinks too much. He has claimed several times to have given up alcohol entirely, but events indicated limited success.
His recent antics included head-butting a photographer in Italy, calling a French interviewer a “b*tch” on TV and rambling incoherently in crude language. He told a British interviewer in 2005 that he drank “between four and eight bottles” of wine a day.

situation fail

NEW YORK (AP) — The Situation doesn’t usually require a lot of motivation to lose the shirt. But Abercrombie & Fitch wants him to go one further — the company has offered to pay “Jersey Shore” cast members to stop wearing clothes carrying their brand.

Abercrombie & Fitch Co. said in a news release posted Tuesday that it’s concerned that having Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino seen in its clothing could cause “significant damage” to the company’s image.

Abercrombie says a connection to The Situation goes against the “aspirational nature” of its brand and may be “distressing” to customers. The Ohio-based retailer says it has offered a “substantial payment” to Sorrentino and producers of the MTV show so he’ll wear something else.

The company says it also is making the offer to others in the hard-partying cast.

“It’s a clever PR stunt and we’d love to work with them on other ways they can leverage Jersey Shore to reach the largest youth audience on television,” MTV said in a statement.
