Last night I "added my hometown" to Facebook. See? But I've never really felt like that is my hometown despite the fact that I lived there for the vast majority of my life. I just never fit in with the city or the people. I'm not sure what makes it so people feel a part of the city; I just know I have never felt that. For instance, I despise and can not stand pretty much everything everybody in El Paso loves:
Chico's TacosUTEPDallas CowboysLos Angeles Lakersbeing obeseOn top of all that I don't like any of the radio stations. I'm not Mexican, have no interest in Mexico and don't speak spanish. I hate the heat and the lack of rain, not to mention the ugly rocks they call mountains, Texas in general, big, stupid trucks and dirt, all the damn dirt. All of it is ugly. Image via Wikipedia
Really, the only place I like in El Paso is my parents' home. I'm comfortable there and it's where I spend all my time whenever I have to be in the city. With a …
Hey, want to piss me off? Just be obnoxious! One day I wrote this on Twitter:
Then Red Bull of all people decides to reply for some reason and when I saw that I got a bit angry:
So...go to hell Red Bull Energy Shots. "Just PULL IT OUT." I guess if I was a frat guy I would laugh hysterically at that. "Pull it out! It sounds like they're talking about a penis! Har har har, bro!" Plus, how would pulling anything out, penis or Red Bull, get me empathy? Just go die, Red Bull Shots. (Also, my boss that day was a woman.)

Fuck You. It is just so damn wasteful. You are the dumbest fucking network on t.v. Throw your stupid vampire show off the side of a building and jump after it. Fuck You.
This shit isn't extreme, it's just stupid. Fuck You. And fuck anyone who watches this shit.
Once upon a time I watched Family Guy and enjoyed it. Now I can not even hear Stewie's voice without exploding into a violent rage (as opposed to my normal quiet rage). People talk about how funny it is all the time and I just do not understand why. So here I sit at nearly four in the morning trying to figure out what happened to me.
At first I thought maybe I have just become one of those assholes who hates things that people like (I do mostly), but I used to like the show when it came out and I vaguely remember most people my age liking it then too. Perhaps I outgrew Family Guy. By outgrow I do not mean I only believe in "high brow" humor or something. But from the time the show came out in 1999 (I was 14) to now (25) I have had the opportunity to experience many more shows, movies, comedians, etc and have expanded what I think comedy is or can be. Meanwhile, it feels to me that Family Guy has become stagnant, relying on the same stupid thing over and over again. And i…
Image by Temporary Transfer via Flickr Everybody writes about their relationships online. I thought I would try it. There's a couple of ways to do it. One can be vague and hope the person the post is intended for reads it. Or one could be specific. That's a little vulnerable though. Hm... I'll just write and see where it goes.
Have you ever loved something? It just makes you happy to be around it. Everything is great, but there's always that nagging feeling that that love is not reciprocated. You can never tell what's in another's mind, you know? Then you find out that worst that you can imagine came true. And that's where I am now.
I don't think Spaghetti Os will ever love me as much as I love them. Now I know what was supposed to go in the empty space in the middle of Spaghetti Os: a heart.
Watching the NBA playoffs I have seen this Kia commercial with hamsters a million times:
It's cute, right? Well yeah, but I have some problems with it. For one, the vehicle is just plain ugly. Why anybody would want to drive something that looks like a box is beyond me. Some of the hamsters are riding in a toaster. Why? Is that something hamsters do, hang out in toasters? Do people say, "Dude! Your car is a toaster!" Plus, the Kia Soul actually looks like the toaster!
A little research reveals the toaster and washing machine images are "a nod to automotive lingo that dismisses dull cars as "appliances.'" Okay. But I saw the commercial repeatedly and never had any idea that the appliances reference was a thing.
And if I saw giant hamsters riding around in cars I would be terrified! Imagine seeing those things in person. You would not be thinking they were cute in their hip-hop clothing. You would be afraid of these mutated things! And maybe they have gun…
