Plug Me Like Toasters.

Hello again my fellow inmates.

So today I wanted to talk about why I dislike (most) humans and introduce you to a few projects that I really think you should check out.

First off, meet Chainsaw Republic. Chainsaw Republic is a metal band, but they are also more than that.. they are revolutionary thinkers and they're a great group of people that I'd consider friends. I've known a few members of this band since I was 14 or 15 years old, so basically half my life (seeing as I'll be 29 in March)...They just got out of the studio, recording their new single, "American Dope" and they're about to go back into the studio for their next song "Beat Me Like Jesus".. I've even signed on to be their concert dominatrix. If you come to their show, I will whip you :)

Now you may be wondering why I'm introducing the band right now, but there are several reasons. You need to know reference points for the back-story to make sense. You need to understand my affiliation with all parties involved and see this for what it is.

Okay, moving on.

As you may know, I'm on Twitter quite a bit. I love Twitter. It's like mini-blogging in 140 characters. I don't have to sit here and write out an entire blog when I can vent via twitter with a simple "wtf people" tweet.. then if people care to ask me, then I may tell them.

So there is a person on Twitter who I've internet-known for quite a while. I'd say somewhere between 6 months to a year. His name is Licorice Nipples ( @LicoriceNipples ) He's a pretty cool guy, or at least, I thought so until last night. We had done a podcast together before and couldn't use it, so we'd decided to try it again. This time he was to interview me with Chainsaw Republic ( and we'd planned this for Friday, November 23rd at 8 pm EST.

We don't know what happened with this guy, but we had gathered the entire band together to do an interview with this guy and he bailed on us with not so much as a "Sorry" or a "I cant do it tonight" or anything.

And now I can get to my first point. I hate people. If you're going to bail, have the balls to say so. At least tell a motherfucker why you're bailing. Did you not agree with a stance the person (or in our case, the band) takes on something? Did your girlfriend get her panties in a bunch and leave you for talking to someone more charismatic than her? What's the real deal here, Holyfield? Don't tell me you're going to do something and then not do it. Actually, let me clarify something here. You can let me down all you want. I'm okay with being let down at this point in my life. But don't let down my friends. Don't let down the people who put faith in you to do something. Be man enough (or woman enough) to tell it like it is.

This is why I don't form close bonds with humans. Humans will continuously let you down, I promise. 99 times out of 100. This is why I do not show sympathy to people with failed relationships. This shit happens. You don't communicate, you ignore facts because you want to be loved and you become jaded. I don't want to hear your pity party when shit comes crashing down. If I cared, you'd know. Don't tell me shit I don't care about.. because I will hurt your feelings.

Growing up as a child, I wasn't exactly allowed to speak my mind. I grew up with very strict grandparents and that wasn't going to happen. I was a child and had no right to speak for the joy of speaking. And I thank my lucky stars every day for that now. I brood on the things I need to say. I learned to hold my tongue and be patient. I learned to ask myself the three questions.. "Does this need to be said?"... "Does this need to be said BY ME?"... and "Does this need to be said by me RIGHT NOW?" and most of the time, the answer is no. I know quite a few people who STILL think it's okay to talk all the time like a rude child. People who stomp when they don't get their way.. People I would personally go back in time to abort if I had a time machine. Guess the moral of the story is this: Don't aggravate or betray people--you never know when they will acquire a time machine to abort you.

Okay, now that we've talked about time machines and I can't think of a segue into my next talking point right now, we're going to talk about scifi.

Battlestar Galactica, namely. Now anyone who knows me should know by now I am a complete nerd when it comes to BSG. I've seen the new series and the old series, played the online game, read BSG books, played the board game  and even watched Caprica. Now there is a new series out called Blood & Chrome and I FRAKKING LOVE IT.

It's being broadcast over YouTube's Machinima channel for the time being and then it's rumoured to be picked up by Syfy if it gains enough momentum.

Now I have some super beef with "Syfy" that I won't being going into right now, but the name ought to tell you everything you need to know. It used to be Scifi, and now it's Syfy. It no longer is a channel for science fiction programming. Last year, on Fridays, their prime time spot was slotted for WRESTLING for frak sake.

Anyway, if you would like to watch Blood & Chrome I have posted it below. The great thing about this being in web-series format is that you can watch 5-10 minutes of it and see if you like it. Also, the time the story takes place is before BSG takes place, so you can feel free to watch this with no spoilers and see if you'd be interested in the "mother" story.

And with that, I bid you adieu. Watch some humans and cylons blow each other up. That's how I release stress. I watch amazing space battles. What's your stress reliever?
