Frantic Friday : The Geekpreciation Edition.... (NSFW)

Last night after Golf, I ran into an old buddy that I hadn't seen in far too many years. It was great to see he'd safely made his way home from Afghanistan and was of reasonable sound mind and body, ( for him :) ) as well. Catching up with each other after so very long apart, definitely called for a :


or two and some time to shoot the shit. The man had just completed his second tour of duty over there and not surprisingly when they found out, all drinks and dinner were on the Manager of the bar. Nice gesture indeed!

After a lot of talk about what it was like for him over there, we turned our attention to the future. My buddy would be looking for work but not in the accounting field where he worked when he'd left. In the Army he's stumbled across an interest that turned into a time killing hobby over there. He seriously wants to become a full time :


now. I think that's really great too! I know quiet a few guy's in the garage and body shop business, so I gave him a few names and numbers. I called one buddy this morning to give him the heads up and as is typical with Rob, I just found out he made the call and hired my buddy on the spot, blind with no interview, no skill level test, nothing!

"You served our country and Bammer says you're OK, that's fuckin' good enough for me!"

Anywho.... part of our conversation last night was about this place and what it does for me. I was thrilled to find out that the hits I was getting from a military site were in fact my buddy. I did suspect it of course, but it was great to get some confirmation. When we talked about Frantic Friday's, my buddy had a pretty solid opinion on the matter.

"There really great Bam..... BUT !!!"

He wanted to know why I spent so much time on :


looking for pictures of beautiful :


of :


in :


type shots.

Now I know this guy loves a great pair of :


and didn't go all :


on me, while he was away. Hell! Even as Sheila behind the bar was telling us why this :


was probably one of her best :


ever, my buddy got busted checking out her :


Which really looked incredible by the way, thanks to a truly fantastic :


doing what it is, that they do best!

So I plain out asked him why he thought I was wasting my time.

"Your missing the very best segment of the market Bam!" he exclaimed.

And after a hashing it out together, I totally agree with his point. I've been :


around looking for hot chicks in :


and/or a :


I keep looking in places where skantally clad model types, constantly need to keep :


rather then looking at the beauty right in front of me! And you know what?


Right here in Bedrock I have sort of a :


that stops by all the time. And although she's totally one of the true :


my buddy reminded me quite correctly, that :


I've often found that when you're getting it on with a geeky chick, once she's real comfortable with you and things are getting SOOOOOOOO hot and steamy, she'll eventually reveal a few of her :


It'll always start with something so innocent that turns really :


in a hurry too!

She might just ask you if you can :


or something. Maybe she's just looking really nerdy and geeky, while doing a little :


or comes across as a total :


as she's taking out the :


I can't really say what it is, but lately I've come to the conclusion that YES I still loves me some :


but I'm developing an over-whelming passion for the chicks that are true :


So there's two things we should all remember about the hawt geeky chicks. Despite what you might think, this is NOT what they are really thinking about, when they bring up :


and, they are usually true alcoholic light weights! That not only makes them cheap dates, but you can rest assured that as smart as they really are, they'll always try to practise :


So here in Bedrock, we call out not just to the red-hot Model types and athletically built hotties of the beach. We here in the cave also call on all of the geeky and nerdy chicks of HAWTness out there. We love you too Ladies!

And that's the kind of :


that folks like myself, can truly get behind! (if you know what I mean) Getting with a geeky chick and using just the right amount of :


may just be the only way to fly kiddies!

So it's with :


that I tell all the HAWT :


with :


to grab hold of them and enjoy.

Because we all know for certain how I feel about boobs, and let's face it :


Oh yes I would !

Rock on you crazy Geeky Gals !

Because you sassy little nerds would be the true :


behind this week's Frantic Friday!

What the short guy said....

*** NOTE *** This is merely one man's humble perspective.

I pride myself in carrying a half-full glass, whatever the situation confronting me is. Call me crazy if you see fit, but I personally still see it as a great privilege to have gravity holding me down onto our great big flying rock. It's just how I roll. But yesterday the little, ( but oh-so-wise ! ) one of our community, opened my eyes to a perfect situation, that clearly demonstrates how the human race has gone to hell in a hand basket.

Economically the devolution of mankind is simple to explain, despite all the rhetoric to the contrary. The program for us humans was simple.

1) Learn to play and learn from play.
2) Learn to improve yourself.
3) Support your community.
4) Work hard for fair pay.
5) Save that hard earned cash for desired amenities.
6) Savour your accomplishment once achieved.
7) Pass these values on to your off spring and to those you mentor.
8) Do what you can to help support others in the program.

Well, that's the way it was supposed to happen anyway. In actual fact mankind became lazy, arrogant, fat and obsessed with our "right" to possessions and amenities beyond our reach. Our capacity to comprehend values such as hard work for fair pay and saving for what it is we desire, were launched out the window when we became a credit based society. Instant gratification with no regard to the adverse effect of over spending, simply became so common place within our species, that it is now just a way of life.

The new program reads something like this.

1) Learn to win at play, or be trampled by the strong.
2) Go to school.
3) To complete school, you need to "complete" your community hours.
4) Work at the level that you are paid for. They will give you a raise.
5) Bob's new TV looked great, borrow the $ to get one. Maybe move up to the next size?
6) Since you're getting that TV, the surround, a DVR and that new couch can all be put on credit too no?
7) I'll have to borrow some cash to put the kid through College.
8) Why should my taxes, help pay for a mosque in the neighbourhood?

Read what you want into all of that. I'm far from saying that everyone out there, falls into this new 'program' for humanity. I'm lucky enough to know hundreds of hard working and totally dedicated men and women from all over the world. But alas we are in a minority that quite literally, has no voice. We can only follow what we have been taught and teach these values as best we can to the next generation. But that again, is the economy. It is a thing, a symbol, a measuring stick for monetary success or failure, created by the species utilizing it. If it fails completely, so be it. We are a resourceful bunch. Trading sticks, rocks, straw or metal, will get us through the roughest of times.

That is unless....... we continue on the path we are on. Will we continue to judge prior to any information or knowledge of the situation? Even prior to that situation actually occurring?

And this brings me back to the the short little fellow and the real meat and potatoes of this post. What you are about to see was blatantly stolen from Ignatious. But it was stolen with a purpose. I see any opportunity to awaken the real human being inside even just one other person, as an opportunity to do some good for mankind. So please take the time to watch this all play out. I'll see you on the other side of it.

video
Can you be honest with yourself and express your true feelings as this progressed? Did your reaction change so dramatically, that you possibly looked like the faces in the crowd or even better, the faces of those humans paid to judge others on the show?

I can tell you that I am about as far from judgemental as it gets. But even I found myself ready for a complete and utter failure, right off the bat. That saddened me greatly. My disappointment in allowing myself to be lead into judgement prior to the activities as they unfolded, was palpable to yours truly.

So goes the advancement of our species. Our culture once constantly carried that half-full glass, looking for advancement and earning every reward along the way. That made the celebrations greater and the knowledge passed on, far more important than any material items that were gained or lost along the way.

When exactly the economy took it's turn, can be tracked down to a specific point in our History. An exact point, to be more specific.

When our culture turned to teaching us from the half-empty side of things, unfortunately cannot. It has been a long and cryptic journey through a few generations.

Having said that, I feel that the brunt of the blame can be put solely on my particular generation. The 40-somethings. Yes we had our parents to give us the life lessons we needed to survive. In the vast majority of our cases, we also had our Grandparents to assist in the process, to diversify our knowledge of all things correct and just. But we didn't really listen did we? We garnered more information than any generation before us, through a developing media age and the ingenuity that was, mankind and his technology quest.

Our generation made one serious mistake however. Rather than determine what that technology could do for us as a whole, rather than determine where that media took us, we jumped on a raft and let it all take us for a slow and gentle ride. A ride that finds us where we are today. As a species, how we get to our next destination is totally up to us. That is if we want it to be.

My failure to await judgement of a situation before an actual outcome, will be used as a lesson for my Daughter. As will my generations decision to ride along, rather than dictate our actual needs and wants to those providing the lead for us to follow. A lead that they determined for us, rather than the other way around. I can only hope that others out there will do the same, so the world can get back to much needed simpler times for the next generation.

Back to a time where something like this, was the toughest judgement that you'd ever have to take part in?

The Big Kat theory....

First off, news about a really Big Cat in our community. A large percentage of you will already know about this, but there is a group that reads here that may not, and I want to make sure that they are aware of something we all know, they're going to love.

For years there's been talk of a book and for years, we've waited. Well I can't begin to tell you how much I look forward to finally getting my copy of;
Lost Vegas
By Dr. Pauly

Writing in his low-key and factual prose style, Dr. Pauly continues to show us a side of our behaviour that can only be called, our 'real' humanity. With some gently cynical styling, he takes us equally to the contempt and admiration sides of our very nature, and just about everywhere in between. This will be our must read of 2009

If you don't already use The Great Gazoo linkage over on the right there, I highly recommend you start doing so. Once you're there, I know it won't be long before you're checking out the archives on a daily basis. May I suggest starting around the 2007 or 2008 WSOP time frames mayhaps?

I'd say enjoy. But I already know you will!

= = = = = =

So, onto this other Big Cat thingy that everyone seems to be doing....

I'd say it's ridiculous even......



You Are Snagglepuss even....




You have more fear of other animated creatures than most cartoons, and with it, the ability to run in place faster than them as well.

Your pink, musically inclined and also very, very humorous. But deep down inside it cuts you to the quick to know, you'll never, ever be as cool as this guy.



You do believe that you need to always make friends, and you are very driven to other 'do-good' animations. However! There is a streak of mischievousness that runs through your soul.

Most people immediately admire you as the class clown. Some people though, feel very envious of your abilities to make the Ladies happy to be around your more sensitive side. Yes Snagglepuss, even though you are a very complex character....

you've got nothing even....


= = = = = =

Lastly I was wondering. Have you taken the time to stop by and see these Big Cats yet? You really should! I can't tell you how often a silly little thing like my own Donkavatar, manages to make me smile like a giddy school kid. The Goat and Bayne made on-line Poker fun and enjoyable to look at. I seriously can't wait to sit at a full table of Donkavatars and if you take a look on the right side of the Donkavatar sight, you'll see that there are quite a few out there already!

Downloading them is so easy and if I can say that, you know it really has to be! If you play on FullTilt, you really should make Donkavatars part of your game.


If you do, when you see me at the tables, you'll really be seeing me!

Masters makes good TV but....

Having Phil and Tiger in the same pairing made for some pretty good television on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Too bad the same can't be said for the announcing! What a typically pathetic job the boy's did, telling the real story of what was going on. Rather than explain how well Kenny Perry was actually golfing under the immense pressure of The Masters lead, shooting even PAR for his first 11 holes and 3 under through 16, they decided to attack the lack of noise or activity in the last two groups.

"It's like a completely different tournament back there."

No shit! The first tournament was where one twosome was doing everything they could to catch up from such a huge deficit, a deficit created by NOT golfing as good as Kenny Perry and Chad Campbell for the previous three days. The second tournament was three men, (totally have to add eventual winner Angel in here!) playing some of the best golf under pressure, that has ever been recorded on television. What Angel, Chad and Kenny did over that last 18 holes and into the playoff, was nothing short of incredible. IMHO, they deserved way more attention and appreciation from the television broadcast crew, than they got.

But in what has become far too standard golf television coverage these days, we were treated to far more Phil eating a protein bar and Tiger mumbling dammit under his hat, than we were to the action of the three great competitors behind. That is of course until Tiger suffered a final two hole melt down, and Phil could only manage a Bogey on #18. Both of which merely brought about a casual, "Oh dear. Well, it was a valiant effort on his part." from the supposedly un-biased announcers, rather than the complete tear down of the play and "failure to capitalize" comments brought on any of the others that played the hole in a similar fashion.

It was only then that the broadcast team was forced to take a look at the play of these three great warriors of the grass. Grinding it out in some cases yes, but also playing a few of the best shots that The Masters had seen in a long, long time as well. Kenny's tee shot into #16 comes to mind to be exact.

Hell if Cabrera had heard some of the crap that had been said about him during the round, I doubt very much there would have been a winning interview done at all.

My point is, using these self-serving puppets as announcers for something as important and classy as The Masters, will never tell the viewers what is really going on out there on the course. It'll all just be the repetitive drone and drool, that the boy's at Augusta will allow you to hear. "Sell the beauty of the course. Sell the toughness. Sell the big names that are playing and say Augusta National every chance that you get. Then we'll all get along just fine." are the key's.

Give me back Johnny Miller and Gary McCord, if it's going to be an important event. At least then we'll get a little refreshing honesty for a change! Because you know what? That fringe really was cut closer than a Brazillian Bikini line and YES!!! I do want to ask, "What the Hell was he thinking at the time?" Because to me that makes for better and more honest enjoyable television, than the crap they presented us with for most of yesterday's NBC broadcast.
