Mericans will ruin the world

July 30, 2012


(props to can-it-be-awesome)

I want to be clear about something

I am NOT anti-gun. But I am for stronger gun control laws.
I do not think you should be able to buy 6000 rounds of ammo in a short amount of time and not set off some kind of red flag.
I believe people have every right to own a firearm.
But I DO NOT subscribe to the philosophy that "If everyone carried a gun, there would be no crime".
I think that is some Grade A Bullshit.

Now, I do not believe that everyone that owns a gun is a toothless hillbilly.
There are many who own a gun that acknowledge that it is simply a tool and NOT a Holy Gift from God.
 I do love The United States. But I do NOT like this subculture of ignorance in America that seems to have blossomed in recent years. People who openly discriminate based on race, religion, gender and sexual preference, people who worship guns as a religion and people who use religion as a platform to showcase their bigotry. I refer to this subculture as "Merica".

And I'm Afraid of 'Mericans

Now I posted the above on our Tumblr Blog, and within minutes, received a rash of hate mail:

So, to those who sent me this on Tumblr, I just want to say
THANK YOU
for proving my point.


NEVER LET THE TV TELL YOU WHAT TO THINK

Let's Play Some Catch Up Shall We?

July 29, 2012


This is the 17+ minute EPIC track from Underworld that was
played during the "Forging the Rings" portion of the
Olympic Opening Ceremonies on July 27th, 2012.


Let's Talk About Christian Bale for a Moment

He has a reputation for being kind of a dick.
But, it turns out he can be a pretty cool guy.

He came to Colorado to visit the victims of the Aurora Theater Shooting earlier in the week.
He did not contact the press and kept it on the down-low.
First he & his wife (Sibi Blazic) visited the memorial site for the victims:


He then went to a hospital & talked with victims and the medical personnel that treated them:

He took some pics, shook some hands with peeps and then quietly left town before
it turned into a media circus.

Way to go Christian, way to go.
For this, we here at ihatepeacocks.com salute you.

OK, first off, I did see "The Dark Knight Rises" last Sunday.
It was epic and awesome
The movie was not without flaws, but it certainly was a great film.
It was a worthy end to the Christopher Nolan Batman Trilogy.
I highly recommend that everyone see it.

While I was in Arkansas this past week, I met the East Coast faction of The Resistance.
I highly recommend following him on Twitter for some great tech tips:


TechVudu turned me onto Depressed Darth & its quickly become one of my favorites on Twitter:

Speaking of Arkansas...

If you ever have to spend time in Little Rock, well, bring a good book
because there isn't a whole lot to do.

We found one resturant that was worth writing home about.
A little hole in the wall called Sims Bar-B-Que.
It  was really good, southern style BBQ.
Low prices, good food, greasy spoon.
Click for more info:


The night life in Downtown Little Rock is small.
We owned that place in 4 blocks (2 coming, 2 going).
And that took only 2 hours.

Dugan's Pub was not that cool.
Their idea of an Irish Bar was, well let's just say they googled "What makes a menu sound Irish?"
But it was a good place to people watch, especially if you like watching people mutilate songs via kareoke.

But I did meet a girl there with some AMAZING ink.
This picture does not do her tattoos justice:


The Big Whiskey was alright, but a lot of high end plastic women and tooling men.


The Flying Saucer was pretty good, a college bar with tons of different beers.
Good crowd, cute waitresses and pretty good food:

We also went to a place called Cregeen's Irish Pub.
While it had the look of a traditional Irish Bar, that was really about it.
The menu and the music was your typical ho-hum bar. The food was not that great and way too greasy.
Although, I did get the "Irish Bread Pudding" for dessert.
And while it may have looked like shit, it tasted awesome, mainly because of the Jameson Glaze:

Bottom Line,
While in Arkansas, stay out of the heat, and drink as much as you can.
It will help pass the time.

We here at ihatepeacocks.com are deeply saddened by
the events yesterday in Aurora.

July 21, 2012

Our hearts are heavy for the family & friends of those who died.
And our thoughts go out to those who were wounded.
We wish you a fast and healthy recovery.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Operative X and I have talked at length about this.
What neither one of us can quite understand is that when a tragedy of this magnitude happens,
why people come out of the woodwork in support of guns.
While neither one of us is anti-gun, we both believe in stronger gun control laws.
And we both feel that America worships guns like a religion.
The last time something like this happened here in Colorado (Columbine 1999),
the NRA was quick to hold a rally in Denver.
I wonder how long it will take them this time?

Op X wrote a rather candid and powerful blog entry related to all of this.
Please read it:

OUR COMIC CON ADVENTURE

Wow.
Comic Con is an experience unto itself.
Nothing else compares.
The Roman is an old pro and I was the Rookie.
But both of us were awed, surprised, frustrated, overwhelmed and thrilled.
There is too much to list.
Here are some of the highlights...

We met Michael Biehn & Jennifer Blanc-Biehn.
We met Robert Kirkman the creator of The Walking Dead and Charlie Adlard the artist on the comic.
The Walking Dead Escape.
We met Morgan Webb, Chris Gore and Kristen Adams from G4 TV.
We met Shia LaBeouf and Rody Rody Piper.
And we even met a few of the Suicide Girls including Kemper & Buellher.

Here are 3 photo sets from our Comic Con Adventure:


The Dark Knight Rises today

I am excited to see this movie.

Comic Con 2012 was amazing, stressful and awesome.

We had a lot of fun, did a shit ton of stuff and met a lot of cool peeps.
I have been swamped since we got back and haven't had time to update the site properly.
So, I promise to post slide shows of all our Comic Con goodness tomorrow.

What the Fuck is it with the heat lately?
No Global Warming my ass!
And please do NOT give me that bullshit line "It's Summer Time. It's supposed to be hot".
Hot, yes. Sweating Lava and cooking pot roast on my car's dashboard, no.

A New Month means new Lulz

July 1, 2012

Video of the Day:

From Steve Moraco Photography comes this epic and frightening time lapse photo video
of the first 5 days of the Waldo Canyon Fire in Colorado Springs.
Pay attention at 6:40 into the video because that is where things start to get scary.
From Tuesday afternoon (6/25/2012) until Wednesday late night (6/27/2012),
The Western part of Colorado Springs became a vision of Hell…

At the time of this posting, the fire is 55% contained!
While the fire is still a very real danger to several areas in El Paso & Teller County,
we have turned a corner on this disaster.
---
We here at ihatepeacocks.com want to thank EVERY firefighter that helped keep
this inferno from destroying our city.


And in other news...

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting a divorce.
Inside sources (whatever TMZ) say its because of Scientology.
So, if that is true then bottom line...
Anonymous Wins This Round!
Be Free Katie, Be Free!


New(old) lulz for a new month

Somebody asked me "what does lulz mean?"
I responded with this. I even made the face:
