My archiving system is officially bolloxed, i'm sure of it. I cant get it to re-publish shite... just keeps whittering on about some kind of template problem. I'm sure this is because I have altered this damned template so damned much blogger just doesnt like it anymore, it doesnt resemble anything even close to how the original template looked.
Ah well, fuck em.

Any ideas? anyone?

On to more pressing matters. Farscape ends this week in the UK, I am very upset. The scifi channel needs... in short... to be kicked in the ass until we can make burgers from their butts. It really is quite a fascinating story, if you like Farscape or not, the way the so called 'scifi' channel are handling themselves lately is a joke. A channel that set out to do one thing... as it says on the tin... show 'scifi'... has become as commercial as QVC and even less entertaining if thats possible. Now, I dont live in the States, but I own a farscape group and i'm pretty up to speed as to what has been going on over there with farscape and scifi... the more I hear, the more i'm sure Satan sold his soul to scifi, not vice versa.

This channel cancels one of only two shows it has going for it, after promising at least 5 seasons to the cast and crew it cuts them short at 4. No warning. The other show it supposedly has going for it is the piss poor, rip off unoriginal 'commercial not scifi anymore' show, Stargate.

Dont get me wrong, I loved Stargate the movie, Its a personal favorite. But I viewed three episodes of this so called television series and I was tempted to gnaw my own nipples off for some entertainment. I know it has a loyal band of followers, fuck knows why, but it does, so kudos to it. But... it just aint... scifi enough for my defintion of it. Which is probably why the scifi channel chose to keep it as their flagship show, and axe Farscape. The show made from scratch, not stolen from any movies, and widely regarded as the best thing to grace the scifi genre in centuries.

They axe it.

Okay, how very forward thinking... I suppose, its a decision only an extra terrestrial could have made! so I guess it does figure after all.

Still, months after we hear about this... I'm reading up on new shows coming along as replacements for all the good ones being axed (not only do we lose Farscape, we lose Buffy, Angel, Dark Angel... and we gain Taken... oh heaven help us if youre there, Taken. I've wiped my nose and found better storylines inside the tissue, really!) and I find out there was a choice between two shows at one point.
One show was your scifi show... set in deep space, an entrepid crew of a fancy ship take up residence on a planet or something. Your science fiction madness follows. Right?

Right.... it was turned down in favour of a show about robot vampires.
Oh good.

So why was the deep space 'scifi' show turned down?

Offical word from the scifi channel themselves is that the proposed show was, and I quote, "Too science fiction-ish".. for the channel. Robot vampires was better.

Whats wrong with this picture?

So, adding to my list of people who will be first against the wall when the revolution comes... scifi channel. Wankers.

I get the feeling my body is rebelling, it just doesnt seem to like me right now. I've felt uneasy, unsettled,a bit sick and a lot headachy for days now and its beginning to get on my nerves. Hence, my lack of anything very interesting happening on here of late.

Still, i've changed my notify list to something that involves me not having to do anything when I update, which is good, because i'm really THAT lazy.

I f**king hate my co-worker Andy. He is the most... most infuriating person on the face of this entire f**king planet. I mean there isnt room enough or time enough to explain this to you in full and proper detail but this guy is an asshole of gargantuan proportions. For a start, he's the size of a f**king boat, I kid ye not. He's a wannabe Hells Angel. Two things hold him back from this. One... he has no bike licence. Two... The Hells Angels think he's a total wannabe and hence... will not spit at him if he's on fire. How do I know this? my fellow co-worker and my very, very good friend Simon is HA... and I get all the insider info.

Let me set a picture.

Andy is a grabbing asshole. He's out for himself, only himself. He is the kind of person that... if he saw a dead homeless person on the sidewalk, instead of reporting it... he would raid the guys pockets for change, take his shoes, coat and hat... and then walk off. The cost of the phonecall to report it would be too much.

He's a pissface, and he screws everyone he's ever met. He has no friends, everyone hates him because they all know full well that he will only be nice to them for as long as he can get something from them. If you can do something for Andy... get him cheap smokes... drugs... burn him free cd's, download him free stuff on your computer, fix his car... anything so he doesnt have to pay for it, then he is your shadow. he is the best friend you will ever have.

The second you cant do anything for him anymore, you might as well be slug trail. He wouldnt even look at you.

He hates me. Why? because I cant do anything for him. He likes Cliff (the boss) because... Cliff gives him his job and Cliff is also a bit daft and doesnt notice when Andy takes money from the takings box. And if Cliff does notice... he's too much of a pacaifist to say anything about it, so Andy gets away with it.
He likes Simon... (fellow tattooist) because Simon is HA... Simon can get him 'in' with the Angels, so he thinks. So his tongue is up Simons asshole so far he can taste the toothpaste.
He likes my mum (Liz... our front desk woman at the studio)... because she's an ex nurse and can give him medical advice when he needs it and also do errands for him.

Me?... I dont do anything for him. Mainly because I hate him. But my hatred of him came when he decided to treat me like shit... because I couldnt do anything for him. That man... tried his utmost, and still does today, to lose me my job. To go as far as to tell my co-workers things that arent true.
They dont belive him though, cause everyone knows he's a pissface.

It's been a long running feud, we just about tolerate each other most of the time but every chance he has to stick the knife in to me, he takes it. Wanker.

Well, today he took a step too far. And my dear Simon layed into him quite brutally. Told him to lay off of me.. and then teased him, saying 'youre gonna cry, arent you... you big girl... youre gonna cry'.... eventually Andy stormed out.

Classic


See, I could say this stuff to Andy but.. we just get into blazing rows and Andy pays no attention. But he respects Simon... so when it comes from him... Andy gets very, very ashamed.

*Sigh* it was a beautiful thing to see... I wish all of life could be as sweet.

Tee hee hoddle ha

Bloody bastard html.

That is all
This should be amusing, I just added a comments feature to these posts of mine. Who knows, might be a giggle. If it bores me shitless i'll just remove it.

See this is what happens when I get bored, I start playing with silly little toys I dont understand, this html larky is just asking for a good bitch slapping it really is. But we've been at this rant already.

Fuck me sideways with a garden gnome I am sick to fucking death of hearing about Michael bastard Jackson. I mean who gives a donkeys ass? Its obvious to me now that it was one big publicity stunt, Michael's career has gone down the pan? hmmmm, how do we get him back in the spotlight? well, controversy and court cases always do that. and oh shock horror, his record sales have doubled!!

Fucking asshair. They all need spanking, the whole lot of them. No surgery... pfffffft.

One way ticket to hell please...
