Pour it up for Duck

There has certainly been a lot of really great humans passing away lately (which is the case everyday I suppose). Typically, when someone great passes away, the blogosphere tends to provide ample coverage of their death and more importantly their life. I have passed up multiple posts like these in the recent past. Maybe it was because I didn't feel that I needed to add what was already being said a million times in a million different places. Maybe it was because I didn't grow up with these idols but merely found them later in life.

However, yesterday, a real hero of mine growing up passed away, Kevin "The Duck" Duckworth. When I was a kid I used to shoot around in my driveway, I would pretend to be Clyde Drexler, with an imaginary Duckworth grabbing all my missed shots, telling me to keep practicing. It is times like that I wish I could relive, but unfortunately, I just keep getting further away from them. But, not in my head...

R.I.P. Duck. See you on the courts.

Few things get me more angry then when people do fucked up shit to animals. So when I saw this video I was surprised to feel a similar flare of resentment. Isn't it just as bad to torture A.I. as it is animals? I am sure many will retort with "but it doesn't feel anything!" But, isn't that the same excuse that those who hurt animals use? or plants for that matter? Why does it matter if it felt anything? Why do people feel like they have to fuck with things?

I hope one day humans finally figure it out. Finally understand everything like they know their timetables. I really think it'll happen one day. But, we definitely got a long way to go. Why is no one talking about that?

The Future Leaders of America

Happy Birthday to Barack and myself (8/4/61 and 8/4/84 respectively). Now, who is the young, handsome, heartthrob in the nice* suit?

Just foolin' Mr. Obama, it is still you!

*my nice suit is really a lion costume.
