Uranus

A friend and colleague who is a PhD psychologist and astrologist sent me a 25 page profile of my personality based on the exact minute of my birth.

Your Ascendant is in Opposition of your Uranus (that’s what she said):

You are an original personality and you delight in your uniqueness and individuality. The right to be able to do as you please is central to your being, however you may not be able to exercise this without flustering and confusing others. You are a non-conformist and, in all likelihood, ahead of your time. To some people, you are an exciting person to be around, to others you are just too different for them to understand. Take care not to come across as too eccentric or weird, because you may isolate yourself socially. You are intrinsically restless and will have many changes of environment throughout the course of your life.

Life’s not worth a damn ’til you can say,

The Benefits of Confusing Techno

I like it when people can take CRAP to the next level by playing it on an accordion.

I thought this CRAP was the song in the opening of the movie “Blade”, starring the now federally incarcerated Wesley Snipes. First on the scene is Tracey Lords, who, BTW,  starred in one of my all time favs, “Ladies in Lace”…so much talent…so much… BUT I digress. Where was I? Oh yeah, she leads an unsuspecting, and unworthy, male suitor into a secretive techno-rave club, with some very aggressive touchy-feely dancing going down. Our victim then starts getting the feeling that something is not quite right. “Why is Tracey Lords interested in me?” “Is it my baller hat?” “Maybe my winning smile…I do brush three times a day.” Then a blood sprinkler system goes off and SURPRISE, it wasn’t the hat. However, just as he was wrong about Tracey’s feigned interest in his headgear, I was wrong about the song. That CRAP song is aptly and INGENIOUSLY called “Blood Bath”.

HOWEVER! there is a benefit to CRAP-MAN’s confusion.  It got me thinking of this gem from Opie & Anthony, featuring the late, great Patrice O’neal:

“I’da waited till the statute of limitations was up…”

Legumes: the magical fruit

Today’s CRAP goes out to all the women in our lives. Last night we were out with friends and my wife leaned over to me and asked if she was pronouncing “legumes” properly…which she was. But it was the way she said it, “Leguuumes.” Hearing it that way, whispered softly in my ear…such a magical word.  

Soon after, I was greeted with my second sensual surprise of the evening; if I would wash my hands and brush my teeth when we got home, it would be socks-only in the bedroom. Oh JEZUS!

I’m a simple man.

In other news, this also goes out to Blair Bear’s wife, Zins, who just endured 27 grueling hours of labour pushing out the Prince Cub, and effectively turning my good amigo into a Papa Bear. Good work you guys, and can’t wait to meet Prince Charles.

Here’s to all the LADIES! in our lives:

When you’re with me I’m smiling,

So Wright you can’t go wrong

It was brought to my attention yesterday that Steven Wright hade won an Academy Award for his short film, “The Appointments of Dennis Jennings”

Comic genius!

It reminded me of this song my Mom used to sing to me when I was a little kid.

I wish you all a great weekend and hope you can find all the CRAP you need for the fast approaching holidays.

You laughed, you laughed, you laughed, and then you left,

Worthless sac of CRAP

Today’s CRAP goes out to my butt hackin’ brother Gamboozalini.  Seems they’re taking out his appendix.
After I heard this I was like, “What would you say…you do here, appendix?”

Apparently nothing:

1 . Anatomy a tube-shaped sac attached to and opening into the lower end of the large intestine in humans and some other mammals.
In humans the appendix is small and has no known function, but in rabbits, hares, and some other herbivores it is involved in the digestion of cellulose.

So, no sweat my man.  It’ll leave more room for sleeves of Chips Ahoy!

To help your recovery, I’m gonna buy you a Samsung UN85S9 85-Inch 4K Ultra HD 120Hz 3D Smart LED TV

$40Gs may seem a bit steep, but the comments have convinced me it’s well worth it. One stark advocate wrote that if you watch Chuck Norris on this TV, it could cure cancer and get your pit-bull pregnant simultaneously.  Vivian Banks was also quite persuasive.

Get well soon so we can ring in 2014 together.

Smell you later,

CRAP-MAN Fun Fact: DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince’s “He’s the DJ, I’m the Rapper” (1988) was the first cassette I ever owned; bought for me by Heather Doc. It is now in the possession of Baby Rishard – received as his payment for helping Yoey and I move and sort through all my CRAP before shipping to Germany.

Missing CRAP

Woke up this fine morn, and my breath smelt/tasted like a geriatric fart passed through an onion. It sparked a eureka moment: CRAP!

I know it’s been a little over a year since our last CRAP inspiration – celebrated by the rousing theme song from Superman, but I’d like to see if I can try to kick-start this love affair again.

In the spirit of re-birth, I send today’s CRAP out to the Blair Bear, who’s got a little cub on the way this month.

Back in 2006, the heydays of CRAP, Mr. Bear voted this, “The worst CRAP of all time.” Well, I’ve decided to step it up for ya, Phoebe!  I’m a glass-half-full kinda guy and I believe it could always be worse.

I find today’s CRAP quite apropos for all the CRAP fans out there who have felt neglected; secretly longing for some CRAP-MAN love that was once so prevalent in their lives. You remember? CRAP: so hot and steamy at its onset, yet destined to maybe just dry up and blow away in the wind. Where has the time gone…and what has happened to us?

Let’s try again, and after that sweet, sweet lovin’, late at night…yeah, you know, when it’s good for you babe and you’re feeling alright…will you just roll over…and turn out the light?

Learning to laugh again,

CRAP-MAN

LOOK! It’s a turd, it’s a stain…NO! It’s CRAP-MAN!

Sunday morning, the quasi-family and I were eating breakfast and listening to German radio.  I was thinking about the good ol’ days of CRAP.  Then…out of nowhere, for no apparent reason, they played this CRAP. I got goose bumps.
So, I thought I would share:

Freedom?

So I got an email yesterday from a friend in NYC telling me how there is some new “Spy-ware” out that blocks people from reading blogs while at work. Another friend of mine is already not allowed to view any type of video content while at work. When I worked for the MAN we had “WebSense” to keep us in check. One guy I know can’t even receive emails with swear words in them, which, I might add, is easily subverted by using a$$ or $hit or Oi812. Oh shit, now the secret is out and Big Brother can put an end to this deviance as well…

WTF!?!

Apparently, all these changes are being made under the false flag impression it increases worker productivity (probably), and of course it increases your “security”. It also helps that you are exposed to as little uncensored, or dissident, information as possible during 8 hours of your day.

I guess a three month interview process, a M.S. from a notable University and being over 30 years old is not enough piece of mind that you will put in a solid day’s work. You still haven’t reached that level of disciplined maturity. Well…now that I hear myself writing this…maybe they are right.

However, I will gladly remain a savage in this brave new world order.

“But I don’t want comfort… I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.”

– said by the Savage in Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, Ch. 17

Anyway, to conclude this mindless dribble that is distracting you from your work, many a young man has liberally emancipated himself to today’s CRAP.

It’s the one good thing that I’ve got,

CRAP-MAN
