A Human-Robot Dance

During a TED Talk event in Vancouver, British Columbia, Taiwanese choreographer and engineer Huang Yi performed an absolutely gorgeous pas de deux with an emotionally responsive, intricately reticulating single arm robot affectionately named KUKA.

For this performance, KUKA was programmed to move not only in harmony with both the graceful movements of the dance but with the sound of Joshua Roman‘s cello solo.

Huang Yi’s pioneering work is steeped in his fascination with the partnership between humans and robots and it’s beautiful. Art has no rules and this is visual poetry to me.

This Holiday Season, Get A Life!!

Every year when the new Starbucks holidays cups come out, someone finds a reason to get offended by them.

First they were too “Christmassy”, then they weren’t “Christmassy” enough, then people thought Starbucks was waging a war on Christmas because, AMERICA!

Now some people are freaking out over what seems to be a pretty innocent design.

Sure it has some Christmas references, but that’s not whats’s pissing people off. Pathetically enough, those hands on the picture on top are the issue.

Some people with nothing better to do are saying that those androgynous hands on the cup may be of a same-sex couple… Obviously, Fox news even went as far as accusing Starbucks of pushing ‘gay agenda’ ’cause they do all, except journalism. 

Starbucks claims their cup was intentionally designed so their customers can interpret it in their own way. So whatever those people are getting offended by, it’s all in their own fucking twisted head.

Seriously, some humans need real issues in their life. Actually, they need a life!!

Shit Sequels Say

Sorry for the lack of updates, between work, errands and fornication I had no energies to blog. But today is another day and I’m off at last.

I’m in the wrong realm and I think everyone can tell.

Now…

I’ve learned enough watching sequels of romantic comedies (or sequels in general) that the sequels of romantic comedies are complete wastes of romance and my humour.

Take Bridget Jone’s Diary. The first film was fine because it hit the right tone of humour, irony, sarcasm, humiliation, and heartbreak which is what a good romance is.

Then there’s the Edge of Reason, the sequel to the Golden Globe nominated film which was so bad, even the sheep in my dreams had bruises.

And there’s also Aladdin 2, or some other sort of stupidity that completely destroys the fantasy of happy endings.

The message is simple: there are no happy endings, but shitty sequels.

Life isn’t that much different…

After a while, some of us, looking for that end, turned into a shitty sequel of ourselves.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that Alex seems confused with my attitude. The fact that I gave him another chance to hang out didn’t mean exclusivity. He thought we would be dating like before, but even if his penis pleasures me, his personality doesn’t.

A sequel won’t be the best idea simply because, I do not trust him.

Perhaps I am the issue…

When I was young and pure, after my 7 years relationship (Hubby) I got into a relationship with the next guy I met (Bunny). After that breakup (Bunny) it took me 2 guys before I met my next boyfriend (Jaden).

After that bf (Jaden), it took me 8 guys before I met the next one (Joseph).

Once over (Joseph) it took me 4 to meet the next (David). After him (David,) it took me only 1 (PatrickA). And after that one, 1 again. (Xavier)

It’s been over 50 guys since my last bf, and I still haven’t met the next one.

I AM a shitty sequel!!!

See, it’s not my intention to make Alex feel stupid, but he should be grateful I accepted to fuck again ’cause I had the choice to say:

“I wish you never acted like an asshole so I could have some faith in you.”

My other choice was to leave the space below his message blank, like he left mine.

Air PEEN

The New York Times says that on Thursday, the people of Okanogan County in Washington state looked up at the sky and thought, “I didn’t know that Tommy Cruise was already shooting Top Gun 2, and I didn’t know they were shooting it in Okanogan County.”

The Navy is filled with sea men, so we all should expect them to draw fat dicks in the sky and we should salute them for it. But some people weren’t into itincluding a mom who complained about her young children seeing it… Young children who have probably scrawled raunchier shit on their textbooks during class.

I know fucking ridiculous!!

The commander of Naval Air Forces, Vice Admiral Mike Shoemaker, says that the air crew responsible has been grounded, and they’ve opened up an investigation, because this is important… “Sophomoric and immature antics of a sexual nature have no place in Naval aviation today. We will investigate this incident to get all the facts and act accordingly.”

Shit is absurd in America! They have a dick as president and nobody seem so offended.

Nobody has a goddamn sense of humour anymore. The pilot who did this, deserves to be promoted and given daily assignments for similar art!

131 Years of the Hole Punch

Google is paying homage to a device that has no place in the digital world: the hole punch!

The history of the hole puncher goes back to 1886 and Friedrich Soennecken, a German inventor who is also responsible for thinking up ring binder. And despite being created more than a century ago, the design of the hole punch hasn’t changed too much, in that it involves a lever capable of punching through a thick stack of paper.

It doesn’t matter that we have made a big leap into the digital age, this device is still widely used and it will continue to be relevant till paper exists in the market.

That been said, this is a cute homage.

Long-Legged Teddy Bear

There’s a lot of holidays coming up, like Hanukkah, Christmas, and National I Hate You Day (that was actually on October 28, so happy belated National I Hate You  Day,) and Amazon has got the perfect gift to give loved ones. Today is Poppy Day, so you could same-day ship this bear to the service man or woman in your life and make them say, “Bitch, haven’t I been through enough?

A company called Joyfay is currently selling a gigantic teddy bear on Amazon for just $109.99. The six and a half foot long teddy bear is pictured on Amazon’s site with regular-sized teddy bear legs:

But when some people ordered it, it showed up to their house looking like the Slender Man.

An Amazon shopper named Savannah was pissed when she got her giant teddy bear last year and she leg-shamed the poor trick by posting the picture above with this review:

“Hideous! The legs are like 4 feet long making the bear look like a creepy gumby thing. I got this for Valentine’s Day and would have rather had a cheaper more proportional bear…I mean this isn’t even cute.”

“...would have rather had a cheaper more proportional bear” is straight out of shit you read on gay hookup apps.

Savannah wasn’t the only one who got it delivered to her. Others did too.

Okay, that bear looks like a sexual predator. But what’s more hideous is the amount of people willing to spend a hundred bucks on a dumb 6-foot teddy bear. Truly, If I were paying that much on a teddy bear, that shit better go all Hollywood on me and molest me!

Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day is a day for all Canadians (and the Commonwealth) to remember the men and women who served and sacrificed for our country during the First World War.

And 100 years ago today, Canadian soldiers advanced through hell to claim victory at Passchendaele.

The Battle of Passchendaele is a vivid symbol of the mud, madness and the senseless slaughter of the First World War. In the late summer of 1917, the British launched a major offensive against German forces holding Passchendaele ridge, overlooking the city of Ypres, Belgium. The battlefield became a quagmire.

Canadian forces entered the fray in October, capturing the ridge and Passchendaele village at a cost of 15,600 casualties, a high price for a piece of ground that would be vacated for the enemy the following year. One of the hardest-fought battles in our history.

Today Canada remembers the Fallen and honours all who serve.

On a personal note, when I came to Canada escaping terrorism long ago, I found peace. Today I salute all of those who have sacrificed so much for that peace.

To the men and women in uniform, to their mothers and their fathers, to all of their families I say thank you!
