Freakin' Awesome.

Yes, that's right. It's an Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds" Barbie® Doll


Now, since I don't like to push my love for old movies onto my boyfriend, he probably doesn't realize just how BIG of a Alfred Hitchcock fan I am; but I AM. Completely and utterly, geeked out kind of fan. I love his movies. I love the plots, the actors, the freaking way the scenes are shot. The lighting and camera angles are almost always beautiful. When I was 10yrs old, I made my grandma take me to the Alfred Hitchcock Show that use to run at Universal Studios. I swear, if I had been alive at the time, I would have died my hair blonde and been one of Alfie's special girls'.

Plus, I love barbie.

If you remember back to my halloween costume ideas, I wanted this one:

Anyhoo (Diner Sequence, Parts 1&2) :

Ahhh the age old question:

Do video games cause violence? I don't know about all that, but an unstable mental history certainly will.

Daniel Petric killed mother, shot father because they took Halo 3 video game, prosecutors say

In September 2007, Daniel, then 16, had sneaked out of his bedroom window to purchase the game at a store against his father's orders. When he returned home, his parents caught him with the game and took it from him. His father, Mark, a minister at New Life Assembly of God in Wellington, put the game in a lockbox in a closet where he also kept a 9mm handgun, according to prosecutors.

About a month later, on Oct. 20, 2007, Daniel used his father's key to open the lockbox and remove the gun and the game. The boy shot his parents, killing his mother and gravely wounding his father. As his father lay wounded, Daniel tried to place the gun in his father's hand.

Also on Monday, a tearful Mark Petric testified that his son came up behind him as he sat on the couch and said, "Would you guys close your eyes? I have a surprise for you."
Petric, 45, said he "expected a pleasant surprise" and closed his eyes. Then his head went numb. As the blood poured from a bullet wound in his head, he realized his wife, Susan Petric, 43, was lying dead on a nearby loveseat, shot in the head, arms and chest.

Petric said his son shoved the gun into his hand saying, "Hey Dad, here's your gun. Take it."

Mark Petric broke down on the witness stand as he said he believes he survived the shooting only because his daughter and husband arrived at the house to watch an Indians game. He heard his son telling them they couldn't come inside.

"You guys shouldn't come in," Mark Petric recalled his son saying. "Mom and Dad had a big argument."

The couple, Heidi and Andrew Archer, testified they heard a moan - possibly their names being groaned - from inside the house, pushed their way in and found the elder Petric wounded and his wife dead. The elder Petric, through his shattered jaw, managed to say his son had shot him, while Daniel tried to blame his father.

Heidi Archer called 9-1-1 and then realized that Daniel had picked up the handgun that had been lying on the couch. Her husband took the gun from the boy, who gave it up without resistance.

The boy ran out of the house and fled in the family van. He was caught by Wellington police a short time later, the Halo 3 game still on the front seat.

Prosecutors are not seeking the death penalty due to his age, so no jury.

Conversations with the parents: Vol. 937

Mom: I wish you were here, I miss partying with you!

Me: I wish I was there too mom. Where are you right now?

Mom: I'm riding in a car with my friend Tracy, we're going back to his house. We had to stop by my house to pick up some Vicodin. You should meet Tracy's friend, I told them how beautiful you are.

Me: UGH Maaahhh-uhhhm! Stop pimping me out to all your friends!

Mom: hahahahha but I told them you were too rough for them anyway.

[Laughter and talking in the background]

Mom: They said that they would bring their rope. hahahaha

Me: Gross mom, I think I'm going to vomit.

Mmmmmm....meat cake:

I'm intrigued. This, my friends, is a meat cake. Layers of hamburger and ketchup, frosted with mashed potatoes. I'm not sure if it would be gross or awesome. I guess you'd have to taste it...and periodically reheat that mutha.

Click here for recipe & more pics.

This explains SO much!

Ummmm yeah. I use to live in that town.

What do you want for Christmas?

Good lord I need to cut that kid's hair! He likes it long because it makes him look like Troy Bolton:

This morning he insisted on being called Clark Kent because of his outfit:

Clark and Lex Pictures, Images and Photos
Yes, he watches Smallville. He likes anything with superheros or singing.

So the fact that he says his name is "Jason" is weird, but no surprise. I have no idea who this Jason person is, it's certainly not anyone in the Justice League, anyone who's been to the Daily Planet, or anyone that's set foot into the Batcave. There is a Jason in High School Musical, but that's not who he's talking about. I don't know, kid is crazy.

Plus, that's the first time I've heard him mention Hungry Hungry Hippos. Or getting The Santa Clause 3 movie. He's really been talking about those damn Pokemon cards forEVEr. So that answer was a curve ball.

Don't even ask me about the "naked" thing. I have no idea.

It's always the quiet, conservative ones...

Politicians in Australia's most populous state could be breath-tested for alcohol before voting on laws after a series of late-night incidents that have embarrassed the center-left government.

New South Wales state lawmaker Andrew Fraser resigned from his conservative opposition frontbench role after shoving a female colleague in the wake of Christmas party celebrations.

"Breath test this mob," said a front page headline in Sydney's mass-selling Daily Telegraph newspaper. State police minister Matt Brown was dumped from his portfolio in September after allegedly "dirty" dancing in his underwear over the chest of a female colleague after a drunken post-budget office party.

Conservative Opposition Leader Barry O'Farrell said he would support alcohol breath tests for drunkenness for lawmakers before they entered parliament, while Green MPs John Kaye and Lee Rhiannon also backed the plan, along with the parliament's speaker.

"Honestly, if you are going to have breathalyzers for people driving cranes you should have breathalyzers for people writing laws," Kaye told the Telegraph.

It makes perfect sense! If only they had instated that when Bush was in office...

In case this wasn't clear...

...you can NOT attack a speed enforcement camera with a pickax!

Picking your nose can KILL you:

A man died because he picked his nose so much he bled to death, an inquest heard.


Manchester coroner Nigel Meadows said about the death of 63-year-old Ian Bothwell: 'There is no explanation for this death other than he died from a nose-bleed, consistent with picking his nose. I do not think for a moment he knew what he was doing was going to cause his death.'
He recorded a verdict of misadventure.

A pathologist concluded that Mr Bothwell, who suffered from dementia brought on by alcoholism, had picked his nose so much that it had caused him to bleed to death.
The only place he found any contributory evidence was inside Mr Bothwell's nasal cavity, which was full of blood.

Dr Benbow told the inquest: 'The nasal cavity was filled with blood. My conclusion is that the most likely cause of death is epistaxis, the technical term for a nose-bleed.

'The most common cause of epistaxis is picking the nose and I believe that is likely to be what happened.'

Mr Bothwell had been a fit young man until he suffered a brain haemorrhage when he was 20. He was unable to work and he quickly descended into alcoholism.

His only relative was a sister living in Cornwall, who he saw just once in 30 years at his mother's funeral in 1986.

Aside from the depressing backstory, I am surprised that this doesn't happen more often. At least in children anyway. When my son was about 18months - 2years old, he would constantly pick his nose until it would start bleeding. He probably wouldn't stop there either, but...ya know...the blood would catch our attention. In fact, sometimes I'll notice some crusted dried blood in his nose now; but not very often thank goodness. It's pretty common for children to pick their nose to excess, so it's a wonder that there aren't serious medical problems that arise.

Word to the wise: Tissues are your friend!

I've been saying this for months now...

See more Jack Black videos at Funny or Die

I've been saying this same exact thing for months now. To fix the economy, all we have to do is legalize gay marriage, legalize and tax the fuck out of weed, and legalize and charge up the ass for prostitution. Think about it. Jobs upon jobs would be available, crime would go down, stds and AIDS would go down, etc etc.

And if the drugs and sex is too much for you to stomach, then just legalize gay marriage. Do you realize the average wedding costs $30,000? Helllooooo. Not to mention marriage counseling and divorce costs. Because, you know, marriage doesn't work, regardless of sexual preference. Anyway, point is, if you are so hung up on every other aspect of gay marriage, just remember, it would help the economy!

Recognize that shit now?

No? Really? How 'bout now?

Still no? What the fuck...

It's muthafukin' MALLRATS! The very awesome movie by Kevin Smith, which if you haven't seen, you should. Fuck, you should just OWN it! You can see the trailer here since that some douche wouldn't allow embedding.

Brody (Jason Lee) is my absolute favourite, and I love every bit of dialog he says. The movie should have been about him, not TS; in my opinion.

So yeah, the blueprints are framed and on my living room wall.

I also have this framed, well, the top one at least:
That little gem is from the Kevin Smith movie, Chasing Amy.

Classy, no? ;)

:::DISCLAIMER::: I do not hate gay people, I've licked enough clit in my day to appreciate the comedy, people. ...fuck.

Sounds like something Nicole Wallace would do...

If you watch Law and Order: Criminal Intent as much as I do, then you'll know exactly who I'm talking about. If you're not watching, then you totally need to, because Vincent D'Onofrio is fucking brilliant!

Anyway, Uganda's police warned male bar-goers to keep their noses clean after a probe found a gang of robbers had been using women with chloroform smeared on their chests to knock their victims unconscious. Hahahahhahahahahha. Awesome!

"They apply this chemical to their chest. We have found victims in an unconscious state," Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID) spokesman Fred Enanga told AFP.

"You find the person stripped totally naked and everything is taken from him," he said. "And the victim doesn't remember anything. He just remembers being in the act of romancing."

Enanga, who explained that several types of heavy sedatives had been used, said he first came across the practice last year when an apprehended thief named Juliana Mukasa made a clean breast of the matter.

"She is a very dangerous lady," the official said.

While early investigations suggest that the gang may consist of dozens of members, the source of the sedatives remains unknown.

"We don't know exactly how they get these materials," Enanga added. "That is something that our investigations must crack."

He called on men, particularly travelling businessmen who tend to carry a lot of cash, to take caution.

"It's a serious situation and people have to be aware."

Yeahhh, "people have to be aware"...people like skeezy rich business men who are trying to pick up some trim on their way out of the hotel bar. Please, spare me. Fuckers get whats comin' to 'em, as far as I'm concerned. And yes, I am pissed I didn't think of this first!
