This post will make absolutely no sense if you are not enrolled at VCP

So if it doesn't make sense, ignore it altogether. That's my strategy to cram stuff in the day before exam actually. When cramming logic goes out the door for me.
Ok on with the unplanned post. Who thinks that a certain lecturer looks like Janis Joplin?

I do. But then again, I also said that the same lecturer looked like Ugly Betty earlier this year. Maybe I just make weird connections.

I'm supposed to be on hiatus but I need a mental health break from Candida Albicans and their wonderful eukaryotic relatives to bring you these

Why is the Alarmist nicknamed that way
This happened last week I think. The Alarmist came home and said to me: "Oh my god, I'm so relieved, I thought I had mouth cancer but it turned out OK". Since I've already named her "the Alarmist" on my blog I was well aware of her tendency to be alarmed not alert and my reaction to her comment was rolling my eyes crazily in their sockets and ask perfectly calmly "Why did you figure that?". And her answer was "I had this white patch on the side of my tongue and it wouldn't come off. And a white patch that doesn't come off is usually the first sign of mouth cancer. I was freaking out I wasn't sure what to do. Should I go get a biopsy, should I go to an oncologist, should I go straight to the dental hospital or should I go to my dentist to get a referral to the dental hospital. And then the next day the patch disappeared."

And that is why she is called the Alarmist.

OiNK is slaughtered
If you don't know what OiNK is, it's only this tiny community of like-minded individual hell-bent on sharing high quality, often lossless, music files against minor details such as legality and copyright laws. OiNK was actually where leaked albums usually turn up first if they were in high enough bitrate. Anyhow, OiNK got shut down, big surprise there and the people who were on OiNK have been grieving ever since. Me? If I was a member I would have been sad too but sadly, I wasn't. Didn't know anyone who could invite me and besides what's the fuss with high quality MP3 files? If you're downloading illegal music to have a try before buying the actual album why bother with high bitrate?
Another OiNK will turn up somewhere eventually. Piracy will never die! In the mean time, let's all flock to Demonoid for our illegal download fix.


GOD is for real.
Seriously, want proof? You know the bush fires in Southern California? That is God's work according to some wack-job fundamentalist (via Pandagon). Apparently, that's his wrath going around in California because they approved of a bill that allows same sex marriage. I wonder what was Katrina. Was that also God's wrath? If God was real and was really angry with the gay people he would have burnt down West Hollywood, you know where all the "scary" gay people live.
In the latest news, it looks like the Californian police shot dead a "god" and arrested a few more "gods" for setting off those fires (link). See, even "god" can't escape the police for unleashing his wrath on California. Apparently, the police refer to these "gods" as arsonists. See why loony fundamentalists are lunatics? Confusing arsonists' work for god's wrath.
Anyway, if fundamentalists' proclamations are to be skeptically considered, I think the fires are gonna burn themselves out soon coz God needs his wrath back to direct it at Tuscany. Apparently they're gonna run this ad campaign which suggests that Homosexuality is not a choice.
And of course the Catholic church has something to say about this. Well, several somethings actually: exploitation of babies (gee, what about those child soldiers in Africa?); "bad taste" (dead man on a cross, good taste much?); "erroneous" (hey at least they have some questionable scientific proofs, what do you have?).
And the funniest shit I've read today from The Catholic News Agency

The Catholic Church teaches that a homosexual orientation is not sinful, but instead disordered. It is homosexual sex acts that are considered sinful.

So if you happen to be gay it's OK as long as you don't have sex. Awesome! I'll go tell all the gay people that they can go to heaven if they don't have sex.

Somehow the quote makes sense too. Wanting to kill somebody is not sinful, it's "disordered". The act of killing somebody is considered sinful. So just plot away, as long as you're not killing anyone it's ok.

So did anyone watch the "great" debate tonight?

I did. For those who didn't watch it here is how it went:

Howard: tax cuts, interest rates will go up under Labor, Labor is controlled by trade unionists, more tax cuts if we are elected, Labor = bad, more tax cuts, Labor = worse, workplace agreement = the way to go, Labor = worst....

Rudd: tax cuts, invest in education, Howard = bad economic management, Liberal = bad, Liberal = liars, global warming, tax cuts, unionists = might be good, Liberal = worse, workplace agreement = the way to hell, Liberal = evil liars....

And that was pretty much what went on while I did pay attention to what being said before I lost interest and paid more attention to the graph thingy and then eventually to how funny Kevin Rudd's chin looked when he talked. Seriously, his chin was very funny in the debate. Howard attracted my attention too even though his chin was absolutely normal, his mouth was weird when he talked. I'm convinced that it was because of the dentures he wears. Do you know why I was convinced of this? The Alarmist didn't stop talking about dentures a while back and all I can remember about all those dentures talks was that Howard has dentures.

While we're on the topic of dentures, here's a pair of them, hand made by the Alarmist, photographed by the Alarmist. And yes, she did buy a camera phone to take pictures of wonderful things that she sees everyday while walking around or working in the dental hospital. One fine example of the wonderful things she sees everyday is below.

Back on the topic of the great debate. I think the audience was very biased, every time Rudd started talking the graph would shoot up even before he stated any point. Both of them raised some good questions when I did pay attention. I thought I've made up my mind about voting already, now I'm sure I need to do more research on this. I thought that Howard raised a good point when he said that if Labor wins it would be Labor all the way from Fedral to State government. It might not necessarily be bad though, at least they won't be constantly at one another's throats with politicking.

One thing I got out of the brief (1 hour) time that I watched this debate business, I have a new appreciation for politicians. I admire, yes, ADMIRE their composure. If it was me in Howard or Rudd's shoes I would be strangling the other debater and yelling out obscenities instead of politely objecting.

To way more interesting and way shorter "debate" watch Rudd vs. Howard hip-hop battle below. Check out Peter Costello ello ello eh eh eh at the end too. Brilliant!

That's it for this post, I need to go to sleep and do some more studying tomorrow.

Extra features (well aren't you lucky my readers)

If I were a drug I would be....

An ACE Inhibitor. These drugs are amazing! They reduce both preload and afterload, they are used in all sort of diseases under the sun. OK seriously only in Hypertension, Heart Failure, Severe Heart Failure, Acute heart failure, and after myocardial infarction but that's a shitload of serious conditions already. And as a side effect you don't have to take potassium supplement. Yay, no bananas for me (I hate them!).

So now I'm gonna entice you to read my blog by putting up hilarious quotes from the people around me.

Possibly the new permanent segment since nobody likes "Here's looking at YOU!". OK, that's a lie only one person so far has expressed complete hatred for that particular part of this blog. But anyhow I haven't been completely annoyed on the train by anyone lately so the segment has been absent. Actually, when I come to think about it, there was this one guy who was kinda obese who sat next to me last week on the train going into the city. He was nodding off and kept leaning on me which was weird. I couldn't help but wondering what if the guy was one of those really obese people, he could have nodded off, collapsed on me, couldn't get up (due to being obese) and suffocate me.

Anyhow, back to the topic: quotes from family and friends, people say funny things around me all the time so I'm gonna post them up to show off my funny friends/family member. This edition's quote came from none other than my sister - The Alarmist. I have 2 sisters, I'm the middle one and I hate to refer to them as my elder sister & my little sister so I call the elder one The Alarmist. The story behind the name is for another time, I've gone off topic once in this post already. Here's a piece of relevant information for the quote: The Alarmist is doing dentistry.

I want a camera phone that can transfer picture to my computer. I constantly miss taking pictures of wonderful things because I don't have a camera with me. I just made this new denture and I wanted to take a picture of it but I couldn't.

The funny thing is, she wasn't trying to be funny. I wonder why she wanted to take a picture of a denture anyway, so that she can get together with her friends and say "get a load of this wonderful denture I made today" ?

Because you can't go wrong with black and other things before I go on a study hiatus

Yeah, change of colour theme yet again. I got sick of it so it's gonna be a little black from now until I have time to fix up a few things and add a banner. Why black huh? Because you can't go wrong with black as long as you're not the bride in a wedding.

Cleveland school shooting.
Anyone heard of this? I got up today, went to get breakfast and that was the first thing on the news on Sunrise. As normal, my response to such news was "Oh wow, shooting at a highschool, who would have thought that is possible when there are guns abound". So I was "surprised". Anyway, what got me watching this piece of news, besides the fact that I hate Channel 9 breakfast show and I hate the retarded Toasted show on channel 10, was that Sunrise had a correspondence in Cleveland and he said something to the effect of: the shooter was described as a Marilyn Manson type who usually wore trench coats.

So there you have it, how to avoid being shot in a high school in the US, avoid Marilyn Manson types who wear trench coats. They hide weapons in there. Let's go bash the shit out of those Marilyn Manson types who wear trench coats so that they'll think twice before going on a shooting rampage huh. Ok, seriously now, do we need to point fingers to the type of music people listen to to justify what they do?

Sudanese immigrants issue
If you don't follow this issue, it's time you do, it's an election year after all. To start with, read this article and then read the related links on the page. What I don't get about this issue is what's the point of holding a press conference to announce that we would cut down the number of Sudanese immigrants? I've never heard of a news conference announcing an increase in the number of Sudanese immigrants in the past, why one now, on an election year no less? One can't help but wondering along the line of the famous "children overboard" incidence.

Vote for me, I'll reconcile with the people I've been refusing to reconcile with since I've been Prime Minister.
Desperate much Mr. Howard? Note, he promised "to hold a referendum on recognising Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders in the constitution as the first Australians" within 18 months if his party is elected again. Also note, he also said in the past something about giving up the prime minister position within an amount of time after the last election. See where that promise has gotten Peter Costello. Me? I have low expectation of what any politician promise.

Radiohead - In rainbows
Today is like the day the last Harry Potter book hit the shelves for Radiohead fans. It's all over the music blogs. Every single blog has something to write about "In rainbows", some has several things to write about that album. Mostly praise, I've yet to see a complaint.
I've heard the new album, I was quite underwhelmed by it, what's with all the hype? I probably should give it a few more spins but so far, I have yet to find a song I like on the record.

Possible blogging hiatus coming up
It's that time of the year again. Back in May I took the whole month off blogging. I might not do the same this time around though, all depends on whether I have anything to say or not. Expect some infrequent blogging in the coming month. Will be back with something new after the damn exams.

And here I am thinking that "funny tertiary textbook" is an oxymoron

Yeah, some tertiary textbook authors have some sense of humour after all. Now I can die happy knowing that there's a textbook that's got at least one paragraph that makes me smile. Excerpt from Rang & Dale's Pharmacology (can't be bothered with the correct referencing stuff right now)

Adhesion to endothelium and migration into the tissue follow a pattern similar to that of the neutrophils, although monocyte chemotaxis utilises additional chemokines, such as MCP-1 (which, reasonably enough, stands for monocyte chemoattractant protein - 1) and RANTES (which very unreasonably stands for Regulated on Activation Normal T-cell Expressed and Secreted - immonological nonmenclature has excelled itself here!)

That's some seriously funny stuff right there or maybe my sense of humour is defected after a few hours of reading the damn book.

blog-keeping tidbits and comments responding

Colour theme change last week. I looks good on my laptop monitor but when I used my sister's computer to look at it, it looks weird. Tell me your thoughts on the colours, I'll probably ignore it until the middle of next month when I get time to do a mini-overhaul of the template.

New sidebar. I shouldn't call it a sidebar as it's kinda under everything else and above the labels bar. It's basically a link bar to free illegal goodies I find from blogs that I read. Get them before they're removed.

This is in response to a comment I get from this post last week. I don't think Crazy lecture notes doodler would check for reply so I reply in a post. Here's the comment:

zomg zomg, i can't believe uve heard of kill hannah and all time low. thats sexciting.


And here's my reply:
Anyway, I'm gonna assume that's a typo. Yeah, I listen to Kill Hannah. I listened to All time low too, only until I saw a picture of the band posing in white underwear eating bananas. That gross me out. Now I can't listen to them without evoking the mental image of said picture so I'm not listening to them anymore.

And the picture I was talking about is below. Behold, this year's first entry for "worst picture of a band ever". Hairy + almost naked + eating bananas = All time low. Ironic how the band's name fit the picture huh?

Last boring thing, the song MCS coverred from the last video I posted in this post is Tegan and Sara's "You wouldn't like me". Told you they're not completely unrelated.

I needed a laugh, Youtube to the rescue

This post can also be titled: "I needed a post, Youtube to the rescue". But seriously, I've been hoarding these videos for post-less days like these. So here goes a bunch of videos of misheard lyrics and visual misinterpretation of said misheard lyrics. They're funny in the lame geeky way.

My Chemical romance - famous last words

My chemical romance - the black parade

Fall out boy - this ain't a scene, it's an arm race

Nirvana - smell like teen spirit

System of a down - BYOB

Evanescence - call me when you're sober

So there you go, wasn't that fun? If you don't find this funny then what is wrong with your sense of humour? More on youtube.

There are moments when your brain goes W.T.F really dramatically slowly and that has just happened to me. Twice

First WTF moment happened to me when I read the plot summary for a movie called "Jack & Diane". Ok, normal, even boring title: check; relatively well known actress: check (Ellen Page played that Kitty chick in X-men 3. There is no reason why this movie would make me go WTF really dramatically slowly with exclamation mark after each word. Until I read the summary that is.

Jack and Diane, two teenage lesbians, meet in New York City and spend the night kissing ferociously. Diane's charming innocence quickly begins to open Jack's tough skinned heart. But, when Jack discovers that Diane is leaving the country in a week she tries to push her away. Diane must struggle to keep their love alive while hiding the secret that her newly awakened sexual desire occasionally turns her into a werewolf.
Werewolf is cool (think Underworld people), teenage might be fun (think American Pie), lesbian can be intense (think Monster) but toss those 3 words together you get the WTF moment of the day. Really, this sounds like plot for a tasteless movie.

Next, Britney's back. That in itself is already a WTF moment already. I thought her career's dead already. But she's back with a new album which leaked on the net last week, apparently it's good, I need to hunt down one copy to see it for myself. Back to the point. Take a look at this cover for Britney's new single.

I'm not sure if it's the official cover or just some fan's mad photoshop skills at work but that is really WTF material. I'm just shocked that she would actually do this. Plus, that can't be her real hair. Expect Britney boycott from churches around the world this October-November period.

Is this supposed to be funny? Coz I'm laughing.

Why am I laughing, well, you would to if I had a better camera with me and/or there was no one around so I could approach the car and take a close up picture of the plate. And I'm also laughing at the illegal parking. Anyway, the plate reads "GAY TOY" and the car is a pick-up truck. Why do I feel the need to tell a bad lesbian in pick-up truck joke?

Completely unrelated, this is the 300th post on the blog. I never thought this blog would live to see the 300th post.
