More interrupting.... (The Bum Files)



So it seems like this is my week to interrupt people and birds on the train.....
As I transferred for the F train this morning ...I felt like I stepped into some one's
living room and/or kitchen....

(Why are those who can help not helping!!!!!???!??!? -- there were 2 lady officers walking by this man as he enjoyed his morning paper)

In the wild..

On Sunday evening ,, I was headed to Manhattan and while waiting for the A train...I apparently interrupted some birds...
have a look...

(I'm not sure why I see the strangest things on the train or waiting for a train...maybe it's me or maybe it's the city)

The Bum Files#006 (A happy ending)

Hey blog readers,,,

This morning I was riding the train and I kept noticing some passengers that entered on the far end would stop ---- look at some empty seats ------ then scurry towards my way,,,

After the 3rd time I stretched my neck out to see what was going on and there was a homeless man sleeping.

From what I could see, he had an injured foot and had urine flowing from seat to seat next to him.

So,,, two stops later, 3 police officers enter the train and did nothing!!!!! They did not even look or turn towards him!

*I thought they would at least help him, talk to him, see if he's alive ,,,,something!

Anywayz, I get close to my destination .... the police have left, and the train empties out and I see a young woman go up to the man, wake him up, give him a couple of dollars, her breakfast, and a business card.

*hopefully she was able to help this man out -- even if it was just with coffee.

The photo below features one of the officers chatting and the homeless man sleeping behind her.

When strippers attack... wait I likey!

After browsing some video podcasts on itunes I came across a show titled:
Stripper Method. It's a video podcast about 2 female strippers who've retired. They are now mothers, business owners, and house wives but still want to keep up and share their stripping skills. I've only watched 2 episodes so far but I think the show is great!!
The format is well thought out and entertaining...did I mention they promote stripper shoes on the show...lol (this was a little awkward for me but "hey" some one's gotta promote those shoes)

The podcast is not just for guys -- the show is somewhat well balanced where ladies aren't completely grossed out by 2 strippers but feel as though they are getting great tips on how to be even more sexier... Out of the 2 hosts the blond is the most charming (hah! do blonde's really have more fun?)

But anywayz,,, I checked out the main website for the show: Vegas Undressed and was directed to this awesome site with other Sin City related podcasts (G Spot, That Show, and Vegas Cabbie)

Whooooohoooo party time for my ipod! :)

Check out a clip from the Stripper Method podcast:

I'm so losing weight....


No matter what size people are
(fat/skinny/round/fleshy/
lanky/rawboned or bigboned)
we are all concerned about our weight and/or health.

Some of us try to eat healthy, join gyms or at least cut back on our alcohol intake....
Not anymore!!!
Just eat a bunch of flavored paper chips and you'll have no worries...
LOL!!!
Check out this product: "Slim Chips" it was created by an Icelandic designer named Hafsteinn Juliusson. He is also known for such products as "Growing Jewelry"




"Slim Chips are good and they contain no calories. Instead of getting fat you can now eat paper with different flavors (Sweet Potato, Blueberry, & Pepperment). It's like eating tasty air. The Slim Chips are made out of edible paper and pure organic tastes."

Check out the designers website and maybe you'll find a new diet or a new solution to your health problems........http://hafsteinnjuliusson.com/index.php?/projects/slim-chips/

LOL!! eating flavored paper strangely reminds me of little kids in kindergarden ....(maybe that's just me)

Your bringing what back??

Alrighty,,,,
Yesterday while transferring trains - I was very disturbed by a poster (see below) 




Why? Why would someone promote this??? Why? 
*Also,,,I love the song "Sexy Back" but come on!! it's a little stale now....

My other complaint is....
Why make a Shrek musical??!??! 

There are plenty of dvds, toys, video games, mugs, hats, umbrellas with the Shrek characters 
on them...
why go here?!??! 


BARF!

Sex (Ed) in the nail salon


One Sunday afternoon a dear friend and I decided to get manicures in a very 
busy nail salon in Brooklyn (Kingston & Throop area). 
It was cheap and it was fast....(ignore the sex reference I just made ^_^)
So...as Kelly soaked her lovely lady fingers she 
turned to me and giggled..
I looked up at her and said "huh?" 
She pointed and told me to read the paper underneath
the soaking bowl.
~Who knew we'd learn safe sex tips while getting mani/pedi's?!?!~
*Check out some of the poorly worded
health first tips from the paper under the soaking bowl*

Fast Food Nation Rental

For almost a year now I've been apart of that online Blockbuster movie rental fad.

So every week I get to see a new movie :)

And I know there are haters out there that think Netflix is better,,,,

But!! With Netflix you do not have the flexibility of trading the mailed movie for another movie at a local blockbuster store for FREE!

*ok enough promoting*

Last week I watched Fast Food Nation. This film was entertaining and informative.
I was constantly reminded that America is a fucked up place, big corporations just do not care about customers, and that immigration is still a huge problem. Great movie. I expected it to be more on the documentary end as opposed to a scripted movie with a huge top notch cast such as Bruce Willis, Wilmer Valderrama, Greg Kinnear, Luis Guzman, Patricia Arquette, Avril Lavigne, Ethan Hawke and many many more.

But overall I'd recommend this rental.

~Ok blogreaders,,, every week I will try to rate the movies that I see and instead of using stars to rate the movie I will rate the movie with shoes (b/c I can not help myself I'm such a girl)

*drum roll please*****

Fast Food Nation receives:
3 open toe - pumps

cat NOT in the hat


This pic was submitted by a faithful blog reader; VWalker (Check out her fabuloustity at: www.myspace.com/venitaw).
Thank you lady,,,I absolutely love this photo!
Really....what more can a girl ask for? Your cat as a hat!! ahh!

Why would anyone carry around a "foo-foo" little pooch when your snuggly, fluffy lil furball can keep you warm?
[source: http://www.missbehavemag.com/wp-content/uploads/cat-hat.jpg> ]

This automatically reminded me of a photo I took on 23rd street and 6th ave, nyc back in June.


Which ones better? You decided blog readers! :).

*Side note: I had to pay this man $1 in exchange for taking this photo :/

Lumpy Scary Ewwww....

Soooooo....one afternoon a fellow blogger (Candice of thehumansaredead.wordpress.com) and I were chatting and just looking through some sites and we often check out Gizmodo.com (http://gizmodo.com) b/c we are secret geeks for computer gadgets and we came across this pillow....



This "pillow" is called a light mate (I'd prefer a person but heyyyy ....who am I to judge?)
anywayz... Matt Buchanan reports that: "NightMates are "soft anthropomorphic pillows and warming lamps" that are supposed to keep you company (and comfy) at night. They come in different sizes, depending on how much anthropomorphic love you need..."

LOL!! whoa! I thought I had issues...

But I can definitely see the purpose of this product....this pillow is supposed to fill the void of the human absence and it even heats up like the human body..

I'm so 50/50 w/ this pillow...
(1) I could not take my eyes off of the above image b/c I can not figure out what the hell this looks like...

(2) Do we really need to buy pillows that replace humans...human interaction is already dwindling..why keep it up?

But finally,,,,,I came to the conclusion that "light mate" looks sorta like a long string of poop (alien poop even)

hmmm...maybe I'm crazy but check out what some people said on the gizmodo site about the freaky pillow



















And check out Candice's blog!

Statement of the day:

Teddy bear cell phone


Ha! This is not your typical cuddly teddy bear! But it's a cell phone! This one is called the Kuma Phone (Bear Phone) - The item premiered at the 2008 Good Design Expo in Tokyo

The best part of this phone is that "You can save up to four speed dial numbers in the bear, one in each paw, which are activated by pinching internal sensors. It vibrates and makes custom noises for incoming calls, which can be answered and finished by pressing the tail."

AH! Yiff-a-listic! :p
