Some events in life you never expect, early death is usually one of those unexpected events. When a person facilitates their own death it just compounds the pain that much more. When I first read that Robin Williams had been found dead I simply dismissed it as a net hoax. I kept running into reputable sources that reported the same thing until I found myself accepting that he was dead.
The details behind his death were a shock to me but the fact that he was dead was the enormous shock that was impossible to reconcile. I wondered for a few hours why his death was having an effect on me. Robin Williams was human, a celebrity, but human and not necessarily immune to problems. I started really going back to when I first became aware of Robin Williams, the first thing I thought of was Popeye, his first lead role in 1980. The film Popeye was a visual feast although the story itself was not so captivating in real time. I thought some more and I arrived at Mork and Mindy.
I was a huge fan of the show that made Robin Williams a star. I thought of Robin Williams as that alien that arrived on earth at the height of the disco craze and gave birth to a child that was in his 50's when he hatched from a giant egg. To me the show was an example of one man's sensational timing, frenetic energy, and amazing talent. Before I arrived at that trend of thought, I thought of Williams as a sort of friend.
When I was a kid I used to love watching Nick at Nite and my favorite show to watch was Mork and Mindy. Growing up I was sometimes a loner because I was shy and not originally from Florida. Mork was the kind of character that kids in that position could relate to. I understood the sensible side and celebrated that nonstop comedy. I watched the series many times over and always thought of that crazy spaceman as the friend that got me through some difficult growing pains. The spaceman is there but only in memory, we won't see him anymore.
I guess the best way to wrap this up by saying nanu nanu to our buddy. I hope that trip back to Ork is full of the wisdom, peace, laughter, patience, and lessons your brought to us. Good night friend I never knew, thanks for everything.

Johnny cash sang that line about shooting a man in Reno, pretty awesome line. I think that line would be better if it was about shooting Justin Bieber in a testicle. Yes I went there and if you don't like it go to Reno so I can shoot you with a paintball, just to watch you scream like a bitch. I'm tired of shit on the news that isn't relevant to society's problems. Few people can talk intelligently about the economy while everyone can talk about that little shit buying hookers with big bundas in Brazil. Let's grow up people!

Futbol, or Soccer as it's known here in the states, has become the glamour sport of the world. While back in the 1980's and early 90's celebrity players were limited to Europe and other parts of the world and the only international celebrity was Pele, today the sport has become something of a star factory. When Pele was signed to play for New York back in 1979, there was nothing really appealing to the public outside of the icon's star power.
Today you have stars that have transcended the sport and at the same time brought it into a new light. Guys like Ronaldo, Mesi, and a few others have become singular figures that exceed their own countries teams. Luis Suarez has become the Tyson of the game while some whole teams have become outstanding examples of the power that the sport seems to have to unite the masses.
Something about the 2014 World Cup has demonstrated that Futbol/Soccer has truly become the media darling. It's not uncommon to see a game on the tube in a bar just like it's not uncommon to see more and more people wearing their favorite jerseys. This is a sport that produces mind boggling numbers. Matches usually produce crowds of 60,000 + and the recent build in popularity has led to some serious investments stateside.
In the city of Orlando there is a 110 million dollar facility being put up to house the Orlando City Soccer Club. In turn Orlando City Soccer Club just acquired the services of Brazilian soccer star Kaka. The World Cup is an even and it brings people to stadiums, the game itself is making celebrities and adding a new dimension, interesting thing to see.
It seems to me as though political correctness has gone beyond the necessary spot. The fact of the matter is we as a society have become frightened of speaking our minds, being taken out of context, and suddenly going through an unnecessary backlash. To be honest, I think it's bullshit that we live in constant fear of that. Let's be real for a minute, it's not correct to be judgmental or racist but to limit your vocabulary on the basis of how fearful you are that someone may be offended by words like nut, or semen is ridiculous. I say be intelligent in your positions, learn to properly back your arguments, and to hell with tepid talk.

D-O-U-C-H-E-B-A-G - Engaging in the act of douchery, assuming the attitude of a bag of douche, bagging the douche and getting a disgusting douche like smell that freaks out most everyone.
This fella in the picture is a tattoo "artist" and I use the term artist very loosely. The reason why I feel he is the personification of a douchebag is because he has a holier than thou attitude. I'm writing this entry in order to cleanse my soul of all the venom that lies within. Personally I'd like for this fucker to take a needle, shove it up his ass and tattoo himself right there. Why expose him? because I can! So never go get a tattoo from the punk bitch at Atomic Tattoo in Sao Paulo, or if you see him in Amsterdam or Portugal.

I have no respect for Dr. Oz and I never will. I'm not a Dr. but I am the son of a Physician that was the very embodiment of the Hippocratic oath. As a child I remember my father looking upon diet foods and crash weight loss products in a less than favorable manner. This idiot recommends every available product that's willing to pay him a hefty fee for valuable real estate in his show. He was grilled on the floor of congress and basically engaged in self contradictory statements and made himself look like a fool. Fuck you Oz you are not the wizard you want people to think you are.
If you want advice go to a Doctor that's willing to tell you the good and the bad in several areas. Stay away from the Physician featured in The Canterbury Tales.
Yes I went there and I plan on buying real estate there too. I'm so sick about hearing about 2016, and every candidate interested in having a pissing contest for the grand prize of fucking the people. The truth is I've lost faith in people, the ones that call themselves leaders. If we were to go down the line and examine the words of politicians, we would get the blueprint of a lifelong popularity contest. Fuck them all!
I say let's have Christopher Walken run for President and be a different character each day in office. Let's make politics fun ( insert cliche here ).
