Two videos worth watching.

I can’t embed the first one, so please, click the LINK (it is worth it):

The second one is from a brazilian boy. The proof that the instrument doesn’t make the musician. He says: “If you have a drum at home that you don’t care about. Please care.”

What do you mean “regular coffee”?!?

I swear, every time I go to Starbucks and order a “small regular coffee”, the people working there look at me with the biggest “wtf?!” face.

It’s like I said something offensive or crude.

This one time (in band camp), there was this very nice guy who even gave me the coffee. For free. I guess he thought that asking for a “small regular coffee” was the same that asking for a ‘to go’ box or extra sauce. You know, they technically have to charge you for it, but keep brushing it off because it’s just too cheap to ask the customer to pay for.

All this got me thinking… wtf happened to “easy choices”? I mean, it’s great that we have so many choices and stuff, but aren’t we sorta shooting ourselves in the foot at having so many to choose from?

    Note: Please note that when I say “choices” I mean from a consumer standpoint. “Personal choices” are a completely different story and one that I fiercely fight to have as many ‘choices’ as possible. 🙂

It shouldn’t be hard to order something as basic as coffee, man. One should NOT have to learn a whole new lingo that belong solely to ONE chain of stores. If I’m going to learn a whole new lingo, it has to at least be usable in 3 or more places.

 

 

PS: I think DD’s coffee kicks Starbucks’ coffee’s ass. In all accounts. There. I said it.

I wasn’t even going to mention…

….that Miss California incident, because I fail miserably at being rational when the issue is equal rights.

But I have to post this, because it’s too awesome not to:

For Entertainment purposes only.

Ok. So I got a bone to pick. It’s been bothering me for a while, but I keep going back and forth about posting it.

The other day, while browsing AI forums, I came across the link for the Bill O’Reilly segment about Adam Lambert. Kid must really be special to make me watch any BoR segment. Ugh.

I have no doubts that when the night falls, this guy, O’Reilly is exactly all the things he’s prejudice about. The skeletons in his closet belong to the Museum of Natural History, right beside the T-Rex.

Anyway.

So, on this segment, they (Bill and 2 republican Sarah Palin fangirls women) were discussing somebody else’s private life. That somebody else, was Adam Lambert.

Ok. Stop.

Note: Guess what, Bill. There was NOTHING embarrassing about those pictures! Not one thing. Zero. None. If anything, they were kinda delish (I hate when I use RR’s lingo, but I can’t help myself), in a “I’m living vicariously through you” kinda way. So fuck you.

As I was saying, those two gals were asked if they thought that the fact that Adam was “allegedly” (snerk) gay could hurt his chances of winning AI.

The women, to BoR’s surprise (I take he never heard of AI’s fraus..hehe), gushed over Adam, so the segment went nowhere.

So, what’s my problem? Here it is. The whole thing made me wonder what those women (or some other BoR viewers) would/did do if/when they had to vote on Prop 8.

See, I’ve seen many saying that they love Adam on stage, and what a great talent he is, and how sweet and well-mannered he seems to be..etc..and so on… But would/did their respect extend to his actual rights? Or it would be one more case of “I have nothing against them personally, I just don’t believe it’s right because of my beliefs” kinda thing.

How many of Adam’s fans (or any other gay artist. I don’t wanna use the guy as flag for anything) actually voted ‘yes’ on Prop 8? How many of those people think he’s the ‘bee’s knees’, but you know, until they cross their “personal beliefs”. Then, it’s all “fuck ’em fags and their shameful (or “embarrassing” right o’R?) lifestyle.” I really hope, for the sake of humanity or at least society, those so-called “fans”, can see that a good person is a good person and a bad person is…..well, one that wants to take other people’s rights away.

I don’t get it and I never will. I admit of having a “head start” because homosexuality was never taboo in my family. There were no closets to hide and everything was always treated as natural as it should be. My uncle was gay and often, at my grandma’s house, half of the people in the room (or, better yet, in the kitchen, laughing our asses off! Good times… <3) were gay too.

Some people are attracted to the opposite sex. Some to the same one. Some for both. Whatever.

One can believe in whatever they want, I don’t care what, but EQUAL RIGHTS should never, EVER be at stake. Ever.

So, please, don’t love your gay “for entertainment purposes only”. Evolution will thank you.
