The Macarena [Oct. 16th, 2009|07:52 pm]
shiftings
[Tags|, , , , , , , ]

Let's all pause for a moment and think back to the years we were in 3rd to about 5th grade when the Macarena craze took this country by surprise. The year was 1996. And we were all instructed by our gym teachers and school secretaries to learn the "Macarena". Granted, the song was partially in Spanish, so maybe that's why no one bothered to listen to what we were dancing to (often times with news crews filming us, as was the case at my elementary school). We were permanently recorded as shaking our hips and waggling our arms to "Dale a tu cuerpo alergria Macarena, Que to cuerpo es pa' darle alegria y cosa buena".

Rough translation: Give him your body happily, Macarena; Because your body gives him happyness and good things.

What the hell?

And in 2008, when we're all old enough to have learned many years of Spanish (or smart enough to use Google Translator), elementary schools are STILL dancing to it!

Please, take a moment and watch this video, where 3rd graders shake their hips alongside 7th grade female volleyball players to this very inappropriate song. The 3rd graders are fun to watch for their lack of coordination, but the volleyball players are ripe for pedophilia:

Palin Hates Polar Bears Tshirts!!!!!!! [Oct. 7th, 2008|01:04 pm]
shiftings



They have these "Palin Hates Polar Bears" tshirts in time for election!
Get yours before November 4th comes too soon!

From the site:
"Recycled Tees is an Akron-based clothing and accessories designer. We make original screenprinted tshirts, patches, and hand-made saddlebags on rescued or recycled cloth. Our mission is to provide a second life to tshirts and other types of cloth that would have otherwise made its way to a landfill. Corporations discard clothing with small defects, usually stains or small holes. We purchase these defected materials and patch them or thoroughly clean them, and then screenprint our original designs on them for purchase. Other materials for products such as our saddlebags and patches are also acquired though these methods. "

Some of the greatest honors student bumper stickers I've seen lately:

"Your child may be an honors student, but you're an idiot."

and

"My german shepard is smarter than your honors student"

So part of my City Series photography show (only 4 pieces of a growing series) is opening with the opening of a new bar tomorrow night (8pm) in downtown Akron, called the Lounge, on top of 69 Taps where the Daily Double used to be.

There will be music & sweetness from California.
And an amazing atmosphere.

I'll be there. You should go, too.

As Congressman Earl Blumenauer once said: "Let's have a minute's silence for all those Americans who are currently sitting in traffic on the way to the gym to ride a stationary bicycle."

As I finish my final day working here, I got this message from my boss, who made me an aluminum foil origami cube: "it is yours to remind you of your time in the cube farm"; and I'll truly miss my geeky friends here but it is time for me to move forward, I'm sure I'll keep in touch with them.

Thankfully, in these final days I finished my online portfolio (minus server issues....), cleaned out my storage area, donated a bunch of stuff to goodwill, and am getting set to leave tomorrow on my first entirely-alone adventure vacation, where I can canoe that same river and clear my head to be ready to begin a new journey.

Adios!

While reading a forum for cycling rain gear, I ran across this quote which I thought was pretty true:

Drug addiction, we say, is evil because it creates an unnatural need in the user that leads to their destruction. By that definition, an automobile is a drug.
