The People Vs. Funkbot

If you want to read the article that Camille sent me and is being referenced in this blog click this link.

Camille: I'm really happy I found this article because it brings up a super important topic that I don't think people really talk about, which is how a person's personal rights fit into a greater society.

I'm absolutely, totally, 100% with this funkbot man. He should be able to not bathe, wear smelly clothes and have a bird's nest on his head. That is his right. But knowing he stinks, he should respect other people. He had all that money, why didn't he just buy a house where the walls or ventilation systems weren't connected to anyone else's?

Dante: Why are the people that are complaining being forced to deal with what one person, the realtor or whoever, made? I’m sorry but this guy is an asshole. I don’t care how normal he sounds and how once you get to know him he isn’t so bad. He sued the fucking MTA because they wouldn’t let him get on because of his look and smell. I wish buses did that more often! Am I supposed to be like “Oh, he is so well spoken and breaks the mold of what a hobo looks and acts like”? No. This guy is a selfish prick.

Let’s say you get $200,000. Why in the hell would you move to an expensive Downtown Los Angeles loft? We’ve talked about it being a nice place to visit but you wouldn’t want to live there. And why still have bags of garbage? You have a house now. Why all the bottles and cans? Recycling? Okay. Recycle it. Don’t use your house as a shopping cart. I know they’re trying to paint this guy sympathetically but he comes across as a dick to me.

Its Going Down!

Dante: There’s been a lot of stuff in the news about people eating each other. Some are saying its cannibals because zombies don’t exist to which I say when I am running from man-eating humans I’m not trying to pontificate whether one is the other. I’m gonna just run like I’m on fire…and being chased by a zombie. Let’s start with the first story to break which was the guy eating a man “down to his goatee.” What does that even mean?

"It means I'm hungry!"

What did you think when you started reading these damn things and seeing that they were spreading?

Camille: First of all, it shows that I am not paying attention to the news anymore! I hadn't heard of any of these stories! WTF!? Actually, I heard about them in passing when either you or someone at work would mention people eating people, bath salts, zombies in Florida or other crazy story snippets, but this is the first time I'm actually reading the stories. Goodness gracious. What the heck is going on?

"The Nothing" by Camille

Back in 1993 Camille wrote a series of short stories. Really short stories. She found them and while reading them I said "I have to draw these!" So I did. This is the first of them. Enjoy!

What's Your Favorite Color?

Camille: Have we ever talked about colors? What's your favorite color?

Dante: My favorite color is and has always been red. Which is weird because I don't own many red things. A couple shirts. A couple jackets. I tend to wear darker colors. I think its still ingrained in my head to not wear it because of gangs and such. But red rules. Like Raphael from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He wore red. And anyone that has been around me more than two minutes knows my thing about red draws on a chick. What's your favorite color?

Wanna Go For A Ride?

Police Tuesday were looking for a man who was naked as he followed a woman in his car from a bus stop in Van Nuys.

The man has followed several women in a silver 4-door compact vehicle, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

"At least one victim noticed the suspect was actually nude in the vehicle," the LAPD said in a crime advisory.

The man is described as white and about 30 to 35. He is 6-feet tall and has brown hair and brown eyes, police said.

Standoff With Your Pants Off

LOS ANGELES — A suspect in an auto theft has been arrested after a bizarre five-hour standoff on the rooftops of a Los Angeles neighborhood.

Police SWAT members climbed the roof of a home and peppered the man with bean-bag ammunition shortly after 1 p.m. Thursday. Officer Karen Rayner says that convinced the man to scramble over to a truck-mounted ramp and he was lowered to the ground and handcuffed.

Officer Bruce Borihanh says police began following a reportedly stolen car shortly before 8 a.m. but after a short chase, the driver stopped, ran off and climbed onto a roof in the Westwood area near the University of California, Los Angeles.

¿Dónde Esta La Best Actress?

Best Actress of 2012...?

From what I gathered from watching The Help all it takes to get a nomination for the Oscar’s is pie. Chocolate pie specifically. Now, I know that this site isn’t about movie reviews. I do that over on Dante Rants. But Camille and I watched a couple of movies that people have been raving about and I must say, we’re disappointed.

Shitting in pies makes people happy.

Camille has read The Help and listened to the audio book. so she knew the story going in. I thought it was about two girls raised together by these servants but one of them grew up to be a totally racist bitch. That was not the case and I’m not gonna explain what the movie is about. Needless to say Black people got fucked over.

Oscaring Time Best Actress & Best Supporting Actor

Camille: We can watch The Iron Lady and The Help. I know you don't want to see them, but I just might put one or the other on while you're not looking and make you watch it!

Looks like Viola is going to take the Best Actress, if the SAG Awards are any predictor. And, well, there's not much else to talk about.

Gee, 2011 was a really bad year for actresses. All the really good movies were male dominated. Not that that's a bad thing. I can't even think of any actress who was forgotten or left behind by the Academy. Can you?

Oscaring Time Best Picture & Best Actor

Best Picture

Camille: Okay. I know they already made the official announcements, but it doesn't start for me until I get my EW, which came in the mail on Friday. Let the Oscaring begin! I just got my Entertainment Weekly Oscar Viewer's Guide and there is so much to be not pleased about.

First of all we can totally cut down the total best pic nods by now. I know it must've sounded like a good idea at one point, but there's a lot of filler in there e.g. Hugo, War Horse and Tree of Life. In fact, let me go ahead and get my min-rant about Tree of Life in here.

Restraining Order Fail

A Riverside County man says he has secured a restraining order against a fourth-grade boy who threatened his son with a knife.

Robert Casteel told the Riverside Press-Enterprise that earlier this month a student at Mission Bell Elementary School pulled a knife on his 10-year-old son, Christopher, and told him that he would "get you after school."

He said he pursued a restraining order to protect his son because the school has been lenient with the alleged aggressor.

"We've already got too many things happening in schools. Kids are getting shot and stabbed" Casteel told the newspaper. "This isn't something to take lightly." School officials say this is the first time a child has been ordered by a court to stay away from a classmate. Police said a 2 1/2-inch pocket knife was recovered in the investigation, but that the student subject to the restraining order denied making any threats.

Comment Of The Day

"Doing it [deluding ourselves] is often beneficial." - April

Three Hots And A Cot

A convicted murderer on death row in North Carolina wrote a taunting letter to his hometown newspaper about his life of "leisure" in prison and making a mockery of the legal system. Danny Robbie Hembree Jr. was found guilty of murdering 17-year-old Heather Catterton in 2009 and was sentenced to death on Nov. 18, 2011. Hembree, 50, is on death row at Central Prison in Raleigh, N.C., but he's not looking for any pity in the letter he sent to The Gaston Gazette.

"Is the public aware that I am a gentleman of leisure, watching color TV in the A.C., reading, taking naps at will, eating three well balanced hot meals a day," Hembree asked in the letter. "I'm housed in a building that connects to the new 55 million dollar hospital with round the clock free medical care 24/7."
