How to piss off the internet in one song–Abigail Breslin: You suck


OH!-pinions

@ DAN-isms.com

Abigail Breslin is the girl in Little Miss Sunshine that impressed the pants off of everyone.  Well she turned 18 and has released her first single ‘You suck’, (song below) written about her ex-boyfriend lead-singer of 5 Seconds of Summer, Michael Clifford.  Hilariously there are a bunch of people who are screaming “Excuse me, doesn’t Taylor Swift have copyright on young-privileged-white-girl-sings-about-her-ex songs?”  But they are not the people screaming the loudest.

The top celebrity body-oddities

Denzal Washington dislocated his finger so many times playing American Football that it would regularly dislocate just from moving his hand...
















OH!-pinions

@ DAN-isms.com

If you've seen the Celeb-bait Boys or Girls categories you'll notice I spend a lot of time watching the amazing physiques of famous people who clearly I'd love to look like - yes, even the ladies - if I could trade my old ass in to look like Allison Brie, I'd miss my penis but we all need to make sacrifices for greatness.  But I digress.

Not ony do I stumble across amazing looking bodies, I stumble on just mounds of "WTF is that? Here is a collection of some of the special oddities about celebrities that you may not have noticed."

Faith is a beautiful thing. Religion however...

This morning I read the Kirk Cameron article linked below and felt compelled to respond:



@ DAN-isms.com

“I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. They are so unlike your Christ.”
--Ghandi

Faith, is a beautiful thing. 

By its very nature, faith in anything allows us to believe in something bigger than ourselves and through that belief we are awarded a certain measure of humility.  My childhood unfortunately taught me that faith and religion are two very different animals.  It is my personal opinion that religion, though built around the idea of faith, is about creating a measure of control.  Religion is a collection of rules that encourages the creation of an ‘us’ and ‘them’ mentality, a mentality that allows those who deem themselves to be righteous, by being the best at adhering to those rules, to sit in judgement of those people they wish to make a ‘them’.

The outcome, is ‘righteous’ intolerance and as it is seen as ‘righteous’ by those who practice it, anyone who dares question it is met with a profound amount of anger.



As I said, I have a deep respect for faith; I have a deep respect for spirituality.  I have no respect for blind, unswerving obedience to rules that are not scrutinised, or questioned; I take issue with anything that discourages thought.

All religion views itself as the ultimate truth, yet despite this belief in its correctness, this resolute and unswerving faith in itself, all religions casts judgement on any attempt to investigate other ‘lesser’ religions, beliefs, philosophies or ideas. Wouldn't an ultimate truth be assured in the knowledge that exploration of other lessor ideas would prove it's position as a superior belief system?



I was once deeply religious and as a result I struggled with fear, guilt and deprivation on a daily basis.  I am so grateful to now be free of that, though to get there caused me great pain and personal anguish, not to mention an incredible chasm in my family.

If you are religious, know that I'm not here to debate evolution vs creation. I understand the religious argument that if you find a watch 'I'd assume it had a watchmaker, That a muffin presupposes a baker, So you must agree sooner or later, That this proves that there's a creator'. (Tim Minchin)

Let's agree for the sake of argument that there is in fact a god. If you are religious, what I'm suggesting you ask yourself  is—why do I believe in my god? Not ‘A’ god, but MINE. 

Is it because your parents were that religion?  Is it the dominant religion in your country?  In my case the answer to both those questions was yes, and upon realising that it gave me reason to pause.  There are a lot of other religions out there, and in some cases there are whole countries following them.  



Doesn’t it seem just a touch shallow, or even arrogant, to believe that they are all wrong, just because it’s not what you were raised to believe, or what your neighbours choose to believe? 

Aren’t the reasons behind how you live your life on a day to day basis, or your belief in an afterlife, something worth being sure about, something worth scrutinising?

Consider the next time that you dismiss someone else's beliefs, that somewhere, there are about a few billion people dismissing yours too for almost exactly the same reasons you dismissed theirs - and yet none of those reasons are good ones.

I say that without judgement.  After all, even atheism is a belief of sorts.

And if a few billion people in another country could be right, and you could be wrong... consider that your righteous intolerance of others, isn't actually that righteous.

Thanks Cockblocked Crowd - Australian novels arrive



Novel News

@ DAN-isms.com

There is no feeling quite like receiving a shipment with the label "Daniel Kroker - Author".  Who thought an irreverent love story set in Goodna / Redbank Plains High School could receive such love?

Amazon.com, CreateSpace.com and Smashwords.com already had print-on-demand, kindle and electronic copies of "Cockblocked by Jesus" and sales are already doing well via these sites as word spreads so a big thank you to everyone who has told their friends about the book and/or wrote such kind reviews on Amazon.com and Goodreads.com.

These wonderful boxes of goodies are the first Australian prints of the novel and will be heading into a series of local bookstores as well as signed copies going out to the people who pre-ordered them, and to the very kind people who gave their consent to have characters based on teen versions of themselves appear in the book.

A big thank you to those people who made this book possible both by contributing the creation of memories that are the foundation of this story, giving consent for the telling of this story, and for those that have supported me over the last two years to get this book from a conversation between myself and a mate into this thing that I can now finally hold in my hands.

And thank you to anyone who took the time to read this little piece of me, I am truly grateful.

Up to 180 Orgasms in two hours - one woman's struggle


OH!-pinions

@ DAN-isms.com

So when I first heard about this story I thought it was either 1) fake 2) or one guys pitch to women that he met in a bar.  As it turns out, this is the real life story of a woman who lives with "persistent genital arousal disorder" and it's really not as fun as it sounds.

I once came eight times in 24 hours in an attempt to beat my dad's record for 'most sex in one day' (hint: I failed)  and by the end of that I thought my penis was made of inverted razor blades, so I can't even fathom what 180 Orgasms feels like. I suppose I may also lack the correct genitalia to properly be able to envisage how one human could even do that...

I've drifted sideways haven't I?  Ahem.  Video of real story below - prepare for epic levels of awkward if you watch it.

The most disturbing thing on the internet at the moment


OH!-pinions

@ DAN-isms.com

So I was eating a pie while watching this... that was a mistake.  You'll understand when you get to the bit I'm talking about.  Anyway, this is the wierdest / most disturbing / yet still funny thing I've seen on the internet this week called:

"Cops cum dicks and Flying" A short film by Sarah Silverman and Josh Rogan

We are experiencing acts of god and Tim Minchin



OH!-pinions

@ DAN-isms.com

So the heavens have opened and drowned the Northside of Brisbane which unfortunately means that my Telstra internet connection - affectionately known as 'two cup and a piece of string tech' is currently performing at under dial-up standards which has made posting articles about as fun as being repeatedly hit in the penis with a tire iron.

Since 'Acts of God' seem to be responsible for silencing the guy who wrote a book called "Cockblocked by Jesus", it seems only reasonable to share this wonderful age old video of fellow Australian, Tim Minchin, called "10-foot-cock and a few hundred virgins". 

Enjoy.

G20 and the Polish Mafia


OH!-pinions

@ DAN-isms.com

DAN-isms.com will be going on an unscheduled "holiday" today thanks to 1) the G20 accosting the office that my receptionists are located in, so I have no one to handle business calls 2) my in-laws (lovingly referred to as the Polish Mafai, they're term, not mine) have taken over my house today.

Apologies.

There may possibly be a host of late posts later today - but as that may be the only time I get a chance to run the new World of Warcraft expansion, probably not.

Can we normalise terrorism? The Chris Rock SNL Terror standup debacle


OH!-pinions

@ DAN-isms.com

Chris Rock did an SNL stand up piece on the Boston Bombings, 9/11, as well as the Freedom Towers and people are losing their minds. Chris Rock is well known for his outlandish comedy and the argument that many are presenting is, "Where do we draw the line between funny and just bad taste?"

Personally I think that if you can laugh about any of his other stuff, you can laugh about any of his material in the video below. Are these jokes going to be raw for anyone who suffered as part of the bombings - yes.  Humour however is our best natural defense mechanism against pain and it is the job of comedians to dole out this "medicine of the soul" by making irreverent the items that are treated with reverence. Why?

Because humour normalises.
