Me getting bicycle kicked in the ribs…

Watch for the bald jackass about :40 seconds in jumping for the rafters.

Watch for the other guy kicking me in the ribs.

Fuck you, Loren. Revenge will be mine.


Things I want…

Dawn of the Dead

Someone order me one.

You can order it here.


For my big sis…

My sister..


Right now, you’re in recovery and you can’t see this, but I feel the overwhelming urge to express it despite that.

You mean the world to me and I am so relieved that you have pulled through and are keeping strong. What you went through is something that I could never imagine and I’m so proud of you for keeping strong through it all.

I couldn’t imagine a world without you. You are the most important person in my life and I am so grateful that you were always there for me, no matter what kind of shit I managed to get myself into. You opened your home to me when I had nowhere else to go. I’m forever in your debt and I love you more than you know.

Just as the soft rains fill the streams,
pour into the rivers, and join together in the oceans,
so may the power of every moment of your goodness
flow forth to awaken and heal all beings–
those here now, those gone before, those yet to come.

By the power of every moment of your goodness,
may your heart’s wishes be soon fulfilled
as completely shining as the bright full moon,
as magically as by a wish-fulfilling gem.

By the power of every moment of your goodness,
may all dangers be averted and all disease be gone.
May no obstacle come across your way.
May you enjoy fulfillment and long life.

For all in whose heart dwells respect,
who follow the wisdom and compassion, of the Way,
may your life prosper in the four blessings
of old age, beauty, happiness and strength.


The end?

As you can tell by the severe lack of updates as of late, I haven’t bothered with this thing at all.

I really don’t know how to be a part of the “blogosphere” and to be honest, I really don’t have the desire to delve into that world.

For the most part, I think that this could be the end of Hostagecalm. It was good for a while, though I’m sure only a handful of people read it.

We’ll see…


blackberry users.

The tool of pure evil.

I guess Blackberry is something that I don’t understand. Yea, they’re pretty and do a lot but in all reality, who needs that much phone? My foray into the world of wireless phones is pretty cheap and easy. I have a bottom of the line Samsung phone that I’ve beaten to shit in the past 2 years. It’s held up for me, surprisingly enough. My major complaint is with my carrier, but that’s a story for a different entry.

I can check email on my phone if I really need to. I use it predominantly for text messaging. I send about as many text messages on my phone as say your average 15 year old girl with a Sidekick.

I just don’t see the need for all that phone in my life, honestly.

The other day, Blackberry had a major service outage and some people reacted harshly to it. I can understand their woes because they’re important people that need their email updates while they leave the office for six minutes to get a latte.

I was reading this article on This quote stuck out to me…

“I’m mad — it’s enough already,” said a frustrated Stuart Gold, who said he gets 1,000 e-mails a day as director of field marketing for Web analytics company Omniture Inc.

Gold, who worked most of Monday on a laptop while traveling, plans to ask his company to buy him a backup smart phone from a rival like Palm Inc., which makes the Treo, in case BlackBerry service goes on the blink again.

“I don’t know what happened, I don’t care what happened. They need to save their excuses for someone who cares,” Gold said.

Way to sound like a complete baby, you douchebag.

I guess some people are so important that they can’t realize that technology fails from time to time.

I really wonder if Mr. Gold is a Comcast subscriber.



The Bluth Family

Finally, word has broken that my favorite Sitcom family EVER is in talks to do a full length movie.

Kristen at E! Online was told by Jason Bateman that “the creative minds behind ‘Arrested Development’ (Mitch Hurwitz and Ron Howard) have put the wheels in motion toward a major motion picture of the Fox TV comedy so many of us adore. I’m told by insiders that Jason and other Bluth family members have received calls from producers (Hurwitz and Howard) asking if they would be willing to shoot a movie.”

“I can confirm that a round of sniffing has started,” Bateman said. “Any talk is targeting a poststrike situation, of course. I think, as always, that it’s a question of whether the people with the money are willing to give our leader, Mitch Hurwitz, what he deserves for his participation. And I can speak for the cast when I say our fingers are crossed.”

She adds that other cast members were called and that everyone seems to be very much on board and excited by the prospect.

I’m thrilled at the prospect of this. Normally I’d be frightened of such a thing, but with the talent that was behind that show, I’m assured that it’s in good hands and will be made properly.

I blue myself.

I “blue” myself.
