Taboo - My New Fav Show!!!

There is a show that comes on the National Geographic Channel called Taboo on Tuesdays at 9pm. It exploits all of the crazy and/or unusual stuff people do. Some of the "taboo" things they show are more cultural differences and to US would be Taboo, but obviously to that culture, it is normal.

The website describes it as this:

"Taboo takes viewers on a journey beyond their comfort zones and across cultural borders to explore addictions and lifestyles that are acceptable in some cultures but forbidden, illegal, or even reviled in others. Each hour-long episode examines a topic from a variety of cultures and perspectives, venturing into closed worlds rarely seen."

The very first episode I watched was called "Secret Lives" and it highlighted the following:

1. People who go around dressed as Super Heroes fighting crime on the streets. Focusing on this 1 guy who is really a child care provider with a wife and kids whose super hero name is "Phoenix Jones". Below is a video of Phoenix Jones, as we follow him on one of his "street patrols". Take a look...


Can I Get A What What - Jay-Z ft. Amil and Ja Rule

I looooooved this song and still do! This is the CLEAN version of course lol. I still know all the words, esp Amil and Ja Rule's parts, they were my fav 2 in the video. I remember my dad used to mix up this song with Noreaga "Superthug (What What)"...see below as well if you forgot what song that is. He would say "Can I Get A What What What What What....." LMBO! I swear I fell out every time!

One of the Strangest Names EVER!

Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop...

Yes, I said Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop LOL. Below is a picture of Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop who was arrested last week for carrying a concealed weapon, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana and a violation of probation in Madison, Wisc.

Apparently he legally changed his name from Jeffrey Drew Wilschke to THAT! Like I sometimes wonder if there is no limit on what someone can change their name to. WHY would they let him do that?! Can I just go change my name to Sniff Sniff Scratch Scratch Sneeze and they will sign the papers and let me walk out?

This was definitely worth asking WHY???

Teenage Death Penalty - Make Sense To You?

I was watching a show (think it was L&O) and it was about a teenager that was 18 who was being sentenced to the death penalty. The lawyers were on opposite sides of the table. Some thought he was too young to be sentenced to the death penalty while the others felt it was the law and he did the crime so he should be treated like everyone else.

First let me make the disclaimer that I personally do not believe in the death penalty. I feel as if it is a band aid (sometimes not even that), for those who were traumatized by whatever the person did, but in no way is it a punishment. How are they suffering if they are dead? Life in prison without chance of parole EVER is just fine with me.

However, my opinion on whether the death penalty is moral or not isn't why I decided to write this. While watching, one of the lawyers made the point that how come everyone wants to harp on him being 18 and so young now, when he isn't too young to be drafted into the military, carry a gun, and kill people. 

I agree. I feel as if in life, period, we stamp people as being "too young" for certain things and not others. Just like the drinking age. An 18 yr old is too young to drink and is not considered adult in that matter, but once again is allowed to go to war and fight for our country or can be tried as an adult in court and sentenced to death.

What do you think? Are we a country that likes to make up rules as we go and choose which criteria to apply when it best makes our case?

Mom Jeans - Ebay

This commercial wasn't even funny to me until the very end when the girl shook her fist and said "oooooooh". LMBO! That was so funny to me. I am going to start doing that to people.

The Cutest Argument - Must See LOL

I thought this was too cute. Sad, but cute lol. Goes to show you that babies can communicate, we just don't know what they are saying half of the time, but they understand each other lol.

FedEx Ground Ad: Names

LOL this is one of those commercials where it was funny the 1st time, but the funniness lessens each additional time watched. BUT I still cracked up when I 1st saw it...and the 2nd time so it works for me lol.
