It would be nice to go insane because then whenever bad things happened you could just pretend it was your mind's work and deny their existence in reality.
It would also be nice to meet Ringo Starr on the subway and have a conversation with him.
Or to get an e-mail. I love e-mails.

22 Seats, 1 Amazing Tale [14 Mar 2005|03:59pm]

omegarobot
[ mood | enlightened ]

This is the story of Darren Bird's Terrace Theater.

The world's smallest theater seats only 22 people. It's a single screen theater located in the town of Tinonee in the Manning Valley in Austrailia. It's also is the home of Darren Bird, literally. The building was originally built in the 1880s as a home, then it was turned into a maternity hospital. The building went through many decorative and structural changes until recently when it was restored and refurbished as a theatre. Bird was passinate about films, he loves them. He worked at a local theater for a while, and collected various tools of the trade. Over time, he's collected seats from doomed old movie palaces and other decorative bits. The whole house is a domestic museum of Victorian decor and machinery from an age when machinery was the future.

But what makes this place stand out from the 'theater' I own in my own living room that seats 6? What seperates Mr. Bird from my living room, your screening room, and that rich guy's study-turned-home theater? Mr. Bird's home is an official, approved-by-the-government, in-the-directory, ticket-taking, concession-selling, new-release-screening movie theater. You see, Darren was showing primo movies at his home, and that didn't sit well with the area's multiplex. And they released the hounds of authority to chase down the underdog.

However, Darren Bird wasn't going to go silently into the night. This was his life, his hobby. He shelled out tens of thousands of dollars to install sprinklers, exit lights, all manner of public safety code complicity. He had to hire a consultant to determine the stability of his house's timbers, floor, and roof. You can even bet that at one time or another some guy in a tie and short-sleeved shirt with a clipboard stuck a flashlight in the toilet for some practical reason. Darren paid, passed all the inspections, and now has a real licenced business, a commercial theater, right in his home.

Don't you just love it when the little guy wins?

So, if at any point in your life, you find yourself travelling to Australia, in the town of Tinonee (just 15 minutes south west of Taree on the shores of the Manning River), check out this little theater. You'll walk up to the ticket window (which is also his bedroom window), walk into the quaint little theater, and be seated. Before the film, Darren hands out little bags of popcorn to all his guests, introduces the film, and invites everyone into his kitchen after the film for tea and biscuits. It's a little piece of heaven in one little guy's living room.

Libraries in Calif. county ban offensive body odor

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) — A new county law aims to keep readers from reeking.

Libraries in San Luis Obispo County have had their own rules banning offensive body odor since 1994, but the policy became law after the Board of Supervisors last month adopted an ordinance that lets authorities kick out malodorous guests.

Visitors to 14 libraries and a bookmobile also could be asked to leave for fighting, eating, drinking, sleeping, playing games, and printing or viewing illegal materials on library computers.

"The point is to make the library a comfortable, safe place for everyone to use," said Moe McGee, assistant director of the San Luis Obispo City-County Library.

A strict code of conduct, officials argue, is needed to ensure one patron's right to use a public library doesn't infringe on the rights of another.

Yet the law can raise tough questions for librarians, said Irene Macias, Santa Barbara's library services manager.

"What is bad odor?" Macias asked. "A woman who wears a strong perfume? A person who had a garlicky meal?"

I have another new hero!

NEW YORK (AP) -- Please call 510-872-7326, Marc Horowitz wants to meet you for dinner. Go ahead, dial it. If he doesn't answer, just leave him a message.

Horowitz, a conceptual artist in San Francisco, was working as a photo assistant on a shoot for a Crate & Barrel catalog when he came up with an idea for an art project that would question social barriers and maybe make the world a little smaller. The dry-erase board looked too blank, so he decided to write his cell phone number on it and, if anyone called, maybe take a road trip to meet them.

"It's about illuminating the importance of conversation between strangers," Horowitz said. "We just plug into our computers and think that's the way to live, but old-fashioned face to face is what it's about."

It's not his first madcap art project aimed at bringing people together. Last year, he ran errands with strangers, which consisted of picking out their cereal and folding their laundry. The 28-year-old also regularly sets up a coffeemaker in Alamo Square Park and hands out free coffee to passers-by.

The dinner tour was supposed to be a three-month journey to meet a few dozen people, but now it has ballooned to include thousands of lonely souls. Horowitz left last week and plans to crisscross the country for at least a year.

Horowitz sold his truck, bought a mini-RV, sublet his apartment and held a garage sale to help fund his journey. He has rejected offers to turn his adventure into a TV show or documentary, which he believes would poison the organic purity of the conversations he hopes to have. But, he allows, he might write a book.

"It's about really listening and knowing that everybody has something important to say and that their stories are fascinating," he says. "This is real conversation with real people -- it's something you can't buy."

Charles Darrow. The name may or may not ring a bell, but what he's famous for will. He's got a plaque in his honor at Boardwalk and Park Place in Atlantic City, which totes his lifetime accomplishment: Monopoly.

I loved Monopoly since I was a kid. Just about a month ago, I decided to write a paper about the history of Monopoly (Sad thing is I don't go to school, I just like to write about random things). While doing research, I dug up an interesting stockpile of information that surfaced when Ralph Anspach, inventor of the game 'Anti-Monopoly' was sued by Parker Bros. for the use of the word 'Monopoly' in his game's title.

In the 10 year trial that followed (all the way to the Supreme Court), Anspach uncovered the real origins of Monopoly. How Darrow wasn't the inventor, but rather a man desperate during the time of The Depression. The cover-up Parker Bros. went through to maximize their profits during those tough times. And about Lizzie Magie, a quaker woman from Virginia who in 1904 (30 years prior to Darrow's selling of the game to Parker Bros.) patented a game similar to present day Monopoly.

Woman accidentally walks into plane propeller
Tennessean | Submitted by: Diamond Sea
"A woman was injured by a propeller while walking near a plane at the Lebanon airport last night, a Wilson County Emergency Management Agency spokesman said. Emergency responders arriving at the airport shortly after 6 p.m. found the woman, 22, injured on her right side, arm and pelvis, spokesman Adrian McNabb said... Witnesses said she had gotten out of the single-engine Cessna 172 and was walking around it when she accidentally walked into the propeller."

sounds like she was probably a sagittarius...

Sudden Emotional Stress Can Affect Heart, Researchers Say [10 Feb 2005|01:00am]

omegarobot
[ mood | tired ]

Sudden emotional stress from grief, fear, anger or shock can cause heart failure, in a little known and poorly understood syndrome that seems to affect primarily women, researchers are reporting today. The victims are generally healthy, with no history of heart disease.

A death in the family, an armed robbery, a car accident, a biopsy procedure and a surprise party were among the events that sent 18 women and one man to the emergency room with chest pains and weakening of the heart, according to an article in The New England Journal of Medicine. Most were older: their median age was 63. But one was 27, another 32. Some had such poor heart function that they would have died without aggressive treatment to keep their blood circulating. But all recovered.

The cases lend credence to the age-old idea that it is possible to scare someone to death, or to die from sorrow. The authors of the article call the condition "stress cardiomyopathy," and have nicknamed it "broken-heart syndrome." How exactly it occurs is not clear, but the patients had unusually high levels of stress-related brain chemicals and hormones like adrenaline, which may have temporarily impaired their heart function. Why nearly all the victims were female is also unknown.

Yeah! So when my birthday rolls around next month, no surprises!

dude... like... big brother, dude... is like... totally watching you.

20/20 last night fucked with my head.

they discussed many issues having to do with the world and its obsession with personal video recording (a night in paris was one of the featurettes.) one issue they reported on was the video taping of executions in iraq of american prisoners. apparently they are all over the internet. it has been discovered that many of them are fake, actually staged to look authentic while being filmed in some film student's parent's garage or something. the people filming these bits claim their work as art when the FBI shows up at their door.

what do you think, bombshelter? is this art or have people crossed the line and exploited the sufferring of others? is this a respectful tribute or just a bunch of sick kids with nothing better to do than play with a video camera and some fake blood?

The other night, I had a dream that I had another piercing.
In my dream I thought it was hot shit, and when I woke up I was like helllllz yeah, but reality soon set in. And yeah, I don't think a stud piercing between my nose and upper lip (like right under my septum) would be hot shit. Not at all.
But anyways, it got me in the mood to get something pierced.
Yes? No? What are some of your guys' favorite piercings?

In Upside Down Land [25 Jan 2005|02:47pm]

omegarobot
[ mood | Poetic ]

I was watching a movie today where a child, recently laid down to bed, asked 'What would it be like in upside down land?' His father explained that in upside down land they would be having breakfest instead of going to bed. The boy then asked 'What would we eat for breakfest?' His father explained that in upside down land you would eat ham, drink soda, eat pudding, and all the treats you want.

Well, this got me thinking, In a land where everything is the opposite, what would actually change and what wouldn't. With meals, you would have dessert first, but dessert wouldn't be dessert, it would be the main course (and vice versa).

We would be born with the distinction between wrong and right. Those who abide to the laws are criminal and those who break them are upstanding citizens. But this is not anarchy, for this is upside down land. Rather, a crime is an act of kindness and an act of kindness is a crime.

In upside down land, Heaven would be below us and Hell above, only Hell is a nice place to live, and Heaven is Hell. Satan is the creator and God is the head strong rebel exhiled from Hell.

Essentially, the only thing that would change are the titles. So, truth be told, we would theoretically be living in upside down land, if not for the fact that it was 12 hours ahead of us, where our night is their day and their day is our night.
