I am so blessed to have met my dear friend LadyJenivie there..and countless others who have lightened up my life.

Farts.. from IRC

SO back in the day.. there was this thing, called IRC… Internet Relay Chat.

It was the beginning of IMs for Internet.

Anyhoo… unrelated… here is a list I found from 1998 about farts.

 

share this potato for no reason

 

And Cait (my wife) says HI *waves* and she’s a Unicorn 🙂 and I’m a giant poppy head…and also, she’s desperate, so please buy her pizza Smile (for real though, pepperoni and cheese and black olives from any pizza place) please courier to America.

 

All farts are divided into two groups: yours and somebody else’s.

 

THE ANTICIPATED FART:
This one warns that it is back there waiting for some time before it arrives. A person who is uneasy for a time in a crowd and who later farts at a time when they think no one will notice has farted an Anticipated Fart.

THE BACK SEAT FART:
This is a fart that occurs only in automobiles. It is identified chiefly by odor. The Back Seat Fart can usually be concealed by traffic noise as it is an eased-out fart and not very loud. But its odor is foul, will give it away, due to the way air moves around in a car. And then someone will say, who farted in the back seat?

THE BARN OWL FART:
A familiarity with owl calls is helpful in identifying this fart. Almost any morning if you get up just before daybreak you can hear one of these birds talking to himself. It’s a sort of a crazy laugh, particularly the way it ends. If you hear a fart that has about eight notes in it, ending on a couple of down notes, and it sounds maniacal, you have heard the rare Barn Owl Fart.

THE BULLET FART:
Its single and most pronounced diagnostic Characteristic is its sound. It sounds like a rifle shot. The farter can be said to have snapped it off. It can startle spectators and farter alike. Fairly common following the eating of the more common fart foods, such as beans.

THE COMMAND FART:
This fart differs from the Anticipated Fart in that it can be held for long periods of time waiting for the right moment. Unlike the Anticipated Fart, it is intended to be noticed. Harold Tabor recently held a Command Fart for the whole period in history class and let it go right at the end when the teacher asked if there were any questions.

THE COMMON FART:
This fart needs little description. It is to the world of farts what the house sparrow is to the world of birds. I can see no point in describing this fart any further.

THE CUSHIONED FART:
A concealed fart, sometimes successful. The farter is usually on the fat side, sometimes a girl. They will squirm and push their butt way down into the cushions of a sofa or over-stuffed chair and ease-out a fart very carefully without moving then or for some time after. Some odor may escape, but usually not much. Common with some people.

THE DUD FART:
The Dud Fart is not really a fart at all. It’s a fart that fails. For this reason it is strictly a group one identification fart, because there is no real way you can identify a fart that somebody else expected to fart but didn’t. It is the most private of all farts. In most cases the farter usually feels a little disappointed.

THE ECHO FART:
This is a fart that can be wrongly identified. It is not some great loud fart in an empty gym or on the rim of the Grand Canyon. The true Echo Fart is a fart that makes its own echo. It is a two-toned fart, the first tone loud, then a pause, and then the second tone. Like an echo.

THE G AND L FART:
This is one of the most ordinary and pedestrian of farts, known to everyone. Certainly it is the least gross. If you have not already guessed, G and L stands for Gambled and Lost. One of the most embarrassing of all farts, even when you are alone.

THE GHOST FART:
A doubtful fart in most cases, as it is supposed to be identified by odor alone and to occur, for instance, in an empty house. You enter and smell a fart, yet no one is there. People will insist that only a fart could have that odor, but some believe it is just something that happens to smell like a fart.

THE HIC-HACHOO-FART FART:
This is strictly an old lady’s fart. What happens is that the person manages to hiccough, sneeze, and fart all at the same time. After an old lady farts a Hic-Hachoo-Fart Fart she will usually pat her chest and say, “My, my”, or “Well, well”. There is no reason she should not be proud, as this is probably as neat an old person’s fart as there is.

THE JERK FART:
The Jerk Fart is a fart by a jerk who smirks, smiles, grins, and points to himself in case you missed it. It is usually a single-noted, off-key, fading away, sort of whistle fart, altogether pitiful, but the jerk will act as if he has just farted the Biggest Fart in the World Fart.

THE JOHN FART:
The John Fart is simply any ordinary fart farted on the john. It is naturally a group one identification, with the sound, whatever it was, somewhat muffled. If it is all the person’s trip to the john amounted to he will be disappointed for sure. Common as pigeons.

THE LEAD FART:
The heaviest of all farts. It sounds like a dropped ripe watermelon. Or a falling body in some cases. It is the only fart that goes thud. Except for the odor, which is also very heavy, it could be missed altogether as a far. What was that, you might think? And never guess.

THE MALTED MILK BALL FART:
Odor alone is diagnostic and positively identifies this fart. It smells exactly like malted milk balls. No other food works this way. It is rare.

THE OH MY GOD FART:
This is the most awful and dreadful stinking of all farts a fart that smells like a month-old rotten egg – as the Oh My God Fart. If you should ever encounter it, however, you may first want to say, oh shit, which would be understandable.

THE OMEN FART:
This is the adult version of the Poo-Poo Fart. About the only difference is that the farter will not say anything. He will just look kind of funny and head for the john. This one is easy to spot if you pay attention.

THE ORGANIC FART:
Sometimes called the Health Food Nut Fart. The person who farts an Organic Fart may be talking about the healthy food he eats even when he farts. If he is heavily into health foods he may even ask if you noticed how good and pure and health his fart smells. It may smell to you like any other fart, but there is no harm in agreeing with him. He is doing what he thinks is best.

THE QUIVER FART:
A group one identification fart only. When you fart, it quivers. If it tickles, then it is the Tickle Fart. If you have to scratch it, then it is the Scratchass Fart.

THE RAMBLING PHADUKA FART:
You must not be fooled by its Pretty-sounding name, as this is one of the most frightening of all farts. It is frightening to farter and spectator alike. It has a sound of pain to it. What is most diagnostic about it, however, is its length. It is the longest-lasting fart there is. It will sometimes leave the farter unable to speak. As though he has had the wind knocked out of him. A strong, loud, wavering fart, it goes on for at least fifteen seconds.

THE RELIEF FART:
Sound or odor don’t matter on this one. What matters is the tremendous sense of relief that you have finally farted. Some people will even say, “Wow, what a relief”. Very common.

THE RELUCTANT FART:
This is probably one of the oldest farts known to man. The Reluctant Fart is a fart that seems to have a mind of its own. It gives the impression that it likes staying where it is. It will come when it is ready, not before. This can take half-a-day in some instances.

THE RUSTY GATE FART:
The sound of this fart seems almost impossible for a fart. Is the most dry and squeaky sound a fart can make. The Rusty Gate Fart sounds as if it would have worked a lot easier if it had been oiled. It sounds like a fart that hurts.

THE S.B.D. FART: S.B.D.
stands for Silent But Deadly. This is no doubt one of the most common farts that exists. No problem of identification with this one.
THE SANDPAPER FART: This one scratches. Otherwise it may not amount to much. You should remember that if you reach back and scratch, it automatically becomes a Scratchass Fart. Common.

THE SKILLSAW FART:
A truly awesome fart. It vibrates the farter. Really shakes him up. People back away. It sounds like an electric skillsaw ripping through a piece of half-inch plywood. Very impressive. Not too common.

THE SONIC BOOM FART:
The people who believe in this fart claim it is even bigger than the Biggest Fart In The World Fart. The Sonic Boom Fart is supposed to shake the house and rattle the windows. This is ridiculous. No fart in the world shakes houses and rattles windows. A fart that could do that would put the farter into orbit or blow his crazy head off.

THE SPLATTER FART:
Unfortunately the Splatter Fart exists. It is the wettest of all farts. It probably should not be called a fart at all.

THE STUTTER FART:
If you think stuttering is funny, this is a very funny fart. It is a fart that can’t seem to get going. The sound is best described as pt,pt,pt-pt,pt-pt-pt,pop,pop-pop-pop-POW! It is usually a forced-out fart that gets caught crossways, as they say, and only gets farted after considerable effort.

THE TACO BELL FART:
The Taco Bell Fart is far richer and full-bodied than your ordinary Junk Fart and takes longer to build up. Sometimes hours or even a day. But it will get there. And it will hang around after, too, even on a windy day.

THE TEFLON FART:
Slips out without a sound and no strain at all. A very good fart in situations where you would rather not fart at all. You can be talking to someone and not miss saying a word. If the wind is right he will never know.

THE THANK GOD I’M ALONE FART:
Everyone knows this rotten fart. You look around after you have farted and say Thank God I’m alone. Then you get out of there.

THE TICKLE FART:
A group one only and one of the easiest to identify. Usually a slow soft sort of fart. If you like being tickled this is the fart for you!

 

May the fart be with you Smile

ignorance

 

There was never a place on this earth, where conversation and kinship was limited by a generation of ignorance. Until the popularization of the internet.

Fun is catching a falling bucket from the sky filled with possibility and the occasional bird droppings… damned pigeons!

Utada HIkaru–Wild Life DVD/Blu Ray

 

Hello there happy humans… Today my copy of the Utada Hikaru – Wild Life Concert on Blu Ray arrived. So impressed.

news_large_utada_dvd

 

I watched the original broadcast live via Ustream and noted it in a previous blog found here: https://uneasypills.com/2010/12/08/hikaru-utada-liveustream-tv/

This is the official DVD release of the concert, with extra footage and what not.

Both the DVD and Blu Ray have the same content, and it came with a bonus poster… ok I’m not really into posters, but none the less.

The Live concert was quite amazing to watch… and the DVD is no different, the quality of the BR disk was a little weird though, though it was HD in most parts, it was still a little grainy.

None the less, all good… glad to have it, and add it to my ever expanding collection of Utada HIkaru stuff.

Note that she has re-signed to EMI under Hikaru Utada… and hopefully in a few years when she starts again, we will all get to hear new material.

It’s always interesting as a musician myself to follow artists that actually have an input into their work, like this artist, who composes her own works. A respect for the real musicians of the world. Seeing as this was (from what I gather) mostly visualised by UH, it’s good to see other creative aspects coming through, other than the accepted musical ones…

As long as you love your craft, your craft will always love you. Smile

Notable here is Matt Rohde on keys and arrangements, which is nice to see again, as he worked on a previous concert with UH, both of which I believe have a much more raw and real approach/feel to the arrangements

Anyways, I be ranting … enjoying the concert again.

Internet Life

 

A response to a fellow bloggers blog:

http://yojinosora.wordpress.com/2011/02/13/quitting-facebook

 

You raise a very valid and point in the online/internet social network addiction. These last 5 to 10 years has seen the internet’s social status raise very rapidly and the generation of people from mid-Tweens on have grown up with it, not really understanding the world before the internet, as you said, though it is a very powerful and convenient way to keep in touch with friends, it also stops us from exploring the real-world that exists right outside our front door. What I have seen happen to some friends, is that they became so overly obsessed with the internet and "life" on the internet, that they started losing their actual real-world social interaction skills. Living in a delusional reality of what THEY believed others were like.

The core reality of it is, that people ARE DIFFERENT in real life to what they are on the Internet. That, sadly, is a fact. We all do it, heck, even I do it to varying degrees (I pretend I’m always happy and that life is great) 🙂

Late in 2009, I learnt how that internet world can come crashing down around me, and that was a big lesson. Now, I make a point of limiting my time on the net, and limiting my social interaction there also.

Understanding that the internet is nothing more than artificial entertainment when its raining outside.

I admit, I have made some good friends, and even flown across the world to visit them (which was awesome), and I’m doing it again this year… but that’s how it should be… actually getting outside, saying HI to REAL PEOPLE, not just internet persona’s.

Remember, this will become worse as the new generation of Tweens / Teens comes along, as they will never have known a world without Internet / Cellphones / Playstation or Xbox or MMORPGs.

I really am sad to think what the world will be like in another 20 or 40 years.

Will we need machines to do everything for us ?

Who’s to know. I just hope, we can adopt the internet and its social-networking ability into our life’s in a balanced and controlled manner.

Here’s a music video from a long long time ago…
