Tone-deaf hate mail - Bag #1

Occasionally web pages under my umbrella-ella-ella-ah-ah-ah (Rihanna) get some interesting comments. Here are some of the more recent ones that I found amusing that came in from a bunch of crazed Guy Sebastian* fans (or just one obsessed 'Guy' die-hard?). Either way, Enjoy. Please :)

That is 20 seconds of my life I will never get back. You are a piece of garbage my friend. I take pleasure in the fact that the more success Guy has, the more it will rankle you. As to where he was #1. Try #1 on the ARIA Charts for six weeks this year with his sixth #1 single. If you don't know what the ARIA Charts are (wouldn't be surprised if a dumb twit like you didn't) they are Australia's music charts which report on what music people are buying each week. Guy's recent SMASH HIT Battle Scars has just achieved 6x platinum sales to become the second highest selling single ever released by an Australian act, only surpassed by Gotye's one hit wonder Somebody That I Used To Know. Guy also has three other songs in the top ten highest selling Australian artist songs ever as well. So he is not going away anytime soon. Hang in there arsehole, it is going to be painful for you.

"Sick individual aren't you.He's got more talent & love & caring for his fellow man than you ever could."


Energy Drinks - The "new" gateway drug?

Energy drinks...generally carbonated soft drinks laced with all sorts of plant extracts generally offering 'stimulating' of 'focus' effects (or 'highs') . Formulated science waters can offer all sorts of modern day concoctions - with vitamins and minerals as well as recommended dietary 'supplements' mixed into water and a slash of 'natural' colour and flavour too, perhaps.

'Energy' drinks are nothing new. Can you imagine a cave-person slugging back on icy cold bottle of refreshingly tasty cola...a concoction packed up the ying-yang with sugar and caffeine?

It'd be like a modern day hill billy high on some pure Mexican shard ('crystal meth')-CHAOS!!

And yet it's beyond that now with 2000> energy drinks offering all sorts of 'exotic' berries and plant extracts. It's like a South American Stimulant crossed with Asian focus powders. Who needs that much concentration?!?

What's a bit more concerning is the classification of caffeine as a 'food' rather than a 'drug'. Has pure caffeine have any nutritional value over say ye-yo (cocaine)?  In that case why isn't cocaine considered a culinary offering from Mexico and Mexico's neighbours? A culinary offering that North American's happen to LOVE!!

So with seemingly no rules or regulations surrounding 'energized'+sugar-laden beverages and their sale...other than the ridiculous prices attached to them.

And as the juiced up techno-teens that grew up downing the popular branded energy drinks now reach drinking age, they are simply 'ruski-ing up/Irishing up/Scotching up' (adding alcohol to) their favourite energy drink.

Nothing like a stimulant/depressant drug cocktail to chase the blues away!

Oh and the other caffeine 'junkies' are the stereotypical 'workers' - Coffee addicts. Pods, bags, espresso, double-shot, etc all chasing their next hit of life from on drum of ground beans to the next.

Interested to know what contains caffeine? If so, below is some information  relevant to your interest :)

Food -- Caffeine content

Percolated coffee -- 60-120 mg/250 mL cup
Formulated caffeinated beverages or ' Energy' Drinks -- 80 mg/250 mL can
Instant coffee (1 teaspoon/cup) -- 60-80 mg/250 mL cup
Tea -- 10-50 mg/250 mL cup
"Coca Cola" -- 48.75 mg/375 mL can
Milk Chocolate -- 20 mg/100g bar

Designer Drugs of 2012 and Beyond

Personally think it's hilarious that there were two allotments of time given on National Television in the past <24 hours on the subject of 2012 designer drugs developed specifically to bypass ill-advised legislation (referred to as 'poisons' in some regions no less) and create their developers and manufacturers (and everyone in between) a SHIT LOAD of Cha-ching $$$ !!!

A law enforcement officer admitted, on recorded video that he 'was not a chemist' but essentially knew how the crafty devils get around the laws (current). A wise monkey that one.

And doctors are 'worried' about the consequences of ever-emerging NEW "designer" substances? I wonder if the potential for something really untested to reach the LEGAL market concerns them more than the substances that creates the demand for them in the first place - i.e. Does cannabis use 'worry' them as much as a newly released 'legal high' created to mimic marijuana?

I really feel for the victims of 'designer' drug use, and drug use and misuse in general. However I do not feel that the blame should be placed on the substance itself, but rather those that push people towards the consumption of these risky substances because they want to prohibit 'drug' use.

The TV Shows were both on the 7 network of Australia.


Did you know that authorities estimate "at least" 10% of all tobacco products sold in Australia are bootlegged? Pt. Uno

This is something I quote from an authority on this very subject.

I kid you not.

Consider this for a moment...'Tobacco' (or 'nicotine') is regulated under Federal Law in Australia. Unless you don't listen to the radio, watch TV, read magazines, newspapers or periodicals, see billboards, browse websites hosting ads (Disclaimer: Like this one...proceeds go towards 'green' generated power AKA Solar panels and accessories) will have noticed that "4,000 chemicals" are present in 'smoke' "

They (nicotine containing tobacco products) contain known carcinogens (cancer causing/aggravating matter) and you know...the sale is regulated from the sale in plan packaging (see HERE - April 10, 2011) to the specified places where it is deemed you can spark up a cancer stick cancer stick being slang for a tobacco cigarette, perhaps an Australian thing?

Oh and the Government earns revenue from the sale of these nasty death delivery systems (cigarettes) in the form of taxes)

Want to know something stupid about Steroid users, public medical supervised injecting clinics with rehab services, habitual/addicted intravenous/intramuscular needle users (or 'junkies')?

There's only 1 of these responsible injecting clinics available in Australia, and only a small segment of the targeted users are fully law abiding by making use of the facility (for possessing/transporting controlled substances like morphine, oxycontin painkiller pills, street heroin, methadone, that stuff they rob ambo's for, amphetamines, and cocaine...which are all injectable...oh and they want to patrol the surrounding area housing the clinic with *common* illicit drug detecting canines (DOGS!).

According to the experts (Zoo Weekly) a 'men's mag' with a broad range of readers which one would have to assume is targeted at the younger adult male population - In issue 343, Sept 24, 2012 "4 out of 5 (80%) of the time Australia police sniffer dog wrongly identify drug carriers" - Reckon they could detect steroids and the "pre and post workout" pills gym junkies pop? Or pharmaceutical painkilling drugs or stimulants? Or just the street drugs?

So poor criminal junkies get a record and can't get work, they need medical attention and instead get a cell and an addiction that turns them to a life of crime, lining the pockets of violent and manipulative criminal syndicates.

Makes a lot of sense don't it?


Guy Sebastian's media persona stinks like a rodent with particularly poor hygiene but with less appeal

Just checked to if anyone of my 'Friends' like 'Guy Sebastian' on Facebook. I couldn't see that anyone of you did. That's good, I'm glad...I really do know you all :)

Seeing as we are all friends let's discuss this one...he's #1 on some rubbish TV chart -I thought he pissed off the religious fan-base by saying he loves his wife and family more than with those lost why is there still a market for this product of a, what? 2003? Reality TV fad?

If he were a race horse he'd already be the adhesive holding up portraits of Black Caviar.

The fact that energy and resources are invested into burning his 'art' onto polymer compact discs and using wood pulp for booklets/promotional works for his brand of expired fad-core 'music', let alone transportation (physical and digital) of the audio and visual pollution bound for any poor saps A/V system to reproduce the atrocity which is, Guy 'Lord Douchebag' Sebastian, makes me want to write something about it...which I have and now offer to you at no cost to share and muse over.

Yours in good taste,


PS3 friendly image mod

I've been bagging out Sony and the PS3 a lot with these image mods so to show that anyone can make blunders and I'll laugh at them all the same.

Krusty: Oooww!!

Micro$oft salesperson: Whoops, I should have warned you, that console get's incredibly hot if you leave it plugged in, heh...ahhh

Ohh Sony

Bwahaha! "It only does everything?!?" Oh Sony, why didn't you create a marketing slogan that was plausible?

Image Mods - PS3/PSN network fail #3

Okay, I might not get to 5 images per entry from now on...unless you're lucky.

Here's a fresh one from yours truly - Feel free to link to this.

Marge/PS3 salesperson: Your teenage son or daughter will think this multimedia powerhouse is really cool

Informed consumer: I seriously doubt my son or daughter is that stupid

**NOTE: Peddled at local swap meet...the only thing you can't buy there is dignity /Diamond Joe Quimby

Image Mods - PS3/PSN network fail #2

These images (if it isn't obvious) are in relation to the SONY PSN getting attacked, and various criticisms of SONY PS3 (e.g. It has no games, its advertising is misleading)

Seymour, i thought you said we were going to play some games, but you are clearly holding a PlayStation 3

This isn't a very happy birthday for Rex Banner

Play Games? ...CAN'T someone ELSE do it?!?

What's that? You want me to PLAY you?!? But you have no online or games

SONY security expert assures users that the PSN is back online

Image Mods - PS3/PSN network fail #1

Well this is my first dump of the images/accompanying text - I've decided to do these in 5 image bundles, so if you want to make comments or refer people (please do if you know people that would enjoy them) to a particular image it is easily to do.

These images (if it isn't obvious) are in relation to the SONY PSN getting attacked, and various criticisms of SONY PS3 (e.g. It has no games, its advertising is misleading)

Get that PS3 away from the children, it's scaring them!

Mr. Burns: Smither's we'll play some games online! Log in!
Smithers: But Sir...
Mr Burns: I said *cocks gun* log in!

The system key has been stolen?!? Whenever I get this upset, I get hiccups!

...PSN hacked into?!?

*hic* Oh, right on cue

Homer: I'd beat your ass online in Madden if I had my PSN!

PS3 Store Owner (Wise Guy): Yeah well you don't.

*Sobs* What a crappy console :(

New Site - "The Simpson's Already Did It

Hi everyone,

I created this site because of a popular entry I had at my original blog (

I had so many of these images to upload I figured that they deserved their own here it is. Enjoy.

Transfer of sister blogs

Hi all,

Long time no entry...unfortunately not much motivates me to create new content for this page these days - Hopefully this will change, I have fond memories of publishing to this blog.

This page however still does receive some steady traffic daily and my page counter continues to click over. To my visitors new and old I thank you and I hope/trust you find my historical content and new content to come to be worthy of your time and visit.

I write today to provide this short update and thanks AND to inform you all that I have decided to close down my other blogs (my so-called "sister blogs") but to continue their legacy by posting their content here.

Although these other projects never came to full fruition nor paralleled the successes of this page, I still believe them to be worthy of transfer.

Please stand by as I hope the following entries will be transferred successfully and with relative ease and speed.

Happy viewing and once again thanks for dropping by :)

Blogger tries hand at Wordpress

Yes it's true - Yours truly tried his hand at Wordpress earlier this year. In a way a retaliation for Google disapproving our advertising partnership :(

I'll try to find the address for my one entry and share it by the time I get to the end of this entry.

BTW these days I'm using 1.5 GB of my  10.1 GB email account ;)

Wordpress didn't make me switch blog host providers. It seemed nice and functional, but really, compared to what I have going here with Blogger, I really have no real reason to make the change. It was nice to try something so-called "new" and "different"; although I found the make up of the site to possesses neither of these traits.

So really what my Wordpress experience offered me was reassurance in the time it's all said and done, it all comes back to the quality and relevance of the original content that the service hosts. Content that is sought after, consumed and enjoyed whether in a positive or negative way.

As I rediscover my Wordpress page a smile comes across my face. Because as I said, it's about the unique Original Content

Now get a load of this URL and Original Content - Plain up hatin' w/ rustled jimmies 2013

Feel free to leave a comment, here there, or anywhere - And share this page with friends, rivals, family...

The World went got itself in a big hurry

Hi all,

To loyal followers, it's been awhile - I struggle for ideas worth sharing. Although by the stats it seems my "legacy" posts are still relevant and worth reading...with pleasing visitor figures. To you all I thank you.

Lately I've been thinking about the resources available to us in 2013. Yes, it's a technology entry :)

A person in my exact position, but say 50 years prior to this day, may have had the privilege of access to a typewriter for documentation and correspondence. A landline telephone and dealing with a population a fraction of what exists today, with a narrower scope of cultural diversity to acknowledge and respect.

These days it's a laptop PC and/or tablet PC so you may be on someone's beckon-call seemingly 24/ case you smart phone's battery has drained from constant bombardment of messages, requests, reminders and even phone calls. At a desktop you may have 2 display monitors, or more.

Television comes in SD/HD and sometimes 3D, perhaps via satellite or cable and channels went from perhaps a total of five 20 years ago to over 15 today on free to air TV (Australia).

...And there's a whole lot more websites these days....

Makes me wonder with all this efficiency how many jobs do need to exist versus the people that 'need' to work, because of an economic model.
