Serial Fiction – Adding Fuel to the Make-believe Fire

Posted by on July 26, 2009 | 2 comments

UPDATE 7/26/2009: Fox sets her sights and aims her fangs directly at Zac Efron’s cake.

UPDATE 6/20/09: Life imitates Art Hudgens stalking Fergie?

Serial Fiction – My Day With Vanessa Hudgens Originally Posted June 8, 2009:
Vanessa Hudgens

Homegirl spent the better part of the morning vomiting and crying. She shrieked twenty-first-century Nancy Kerrigan style, “Why? Why Megan Fox? Why not me?” She was eventually persuaded to rise up off the bathroom floor and begin some semblance of a normal day, at least by “celebrity” standards.

The sniffles and intermittent weeping persisted throughout the day. If she had mustered up one tenth that commitment and affability on the craptastic character that made her famous maybe someone other than cheese hungry, beard following tweens would be able to stand her and she might’ve gotten a small role in a Summer Blockbuster or even a spot in a sleeper smash.

Instead she met the end of this day by frantically searching for the real Fergie on Twitter, determined to strike-up a friendship based on a what she hoped would be a shared hatred of Megan Fox – to no avail.

So for now she’ll simply have to be steadied by the comfort clawing with a death grip onto the coat tails of her virginal man friend brings – in this her brief stint of consciousness that she has less of a “career” than does a ribbon wearing cartoon kitten.

Pop. Poli. Weighing Your Barack-o-tunities

Posted by on July 22, 2009 | One comment

Barack Obama
AP/New York Daily News

In today’s edition of Popular Politics – Say what you will about proposed healthcare reform by the current administration. All I can speak to is my personal experience in which at least one Barack-o-tunity is working and what’s going on in an area where there’s none.

We took advantage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Tax Act by installing energy efficient windows in our home. The local business that benefited from our purchase made no fewer than four follow-up calls to ensure our satisfaction with their products and services over the process of demo and installation.

On the other hand our relative has been in and out of hospitals, urgent care and emergency rooms for months now following a flawed emergency surgery. Said relative has had to demand test results, after being largely ignored or dismissed by multiple “care providers”, which revealed a physical malady that will require additional surgery to prevent another critical situation.

All the energy efficient windows are holding up well, our relative is awaiting the next available Operating Room appointment.

Global/Local v. Loco

Global Local
KOAT School Supply Drive/Unicef v. Starbucks

Global – As seen on GMA today, former first daughter Jenna Bush Hager steps back into her humanitarian shoes promoting the UNICEF initiative “Project Sprinkles“. For less than the price of your daily crack-attack at Starbucks ($3.50) UNICEF can provide a child with 100% their daily allowance of vitamins, critical for healthy physical and mental development, for one year.

Local – KOAT 7 has launched their 9th annual school supply drive. Basic supplies are in high demand for area school children. KOAT and Albuquerque Public Schools are accepting donations at local Smith’s Grocery Stores, Ashley Furniture Homestore, New Mexico Educators Federal Credit Unions or at the station July 20 – August 16. Monetary donations are also welcome at New Mexico Educators Federal Credit Unions locations.

Unicef/KOAT School Supply Drive

Lastly, help control the human population by supporting physical health and education.

SAP – Your Daily View Above ABQ.

Sky7
Click for KOAT Video

While Sky 7 is undoubtedly a valuable asset to the Action 7 news team, as are reporter A.J. Smith and pilot Neal Lawson…Are daily fly-overs really necessary?

In their efforts to inform us of where our tax dollars and Barack-ortunity funds are being spent, this watch-dog in the sky segment plays out daily – whereby A.J. Smith is dispatched overhead to show you various holes in the ground, tops of buildings and strips of asphalt.

At an estimated 4 miles to the gallon and approximately 7 times the CO2 emissions of your standard vehicle is this coverage aligning with economic and environmental standards we should be striving for?

Applause for the watch-dogging, but thumbs down on daily flights for fancy aerials.

Recession Succession by Oxford Word of the Year 2008

Posted by on July 18, 2009 | 2 comments

Hypermiling
Jeffrey Hill

Hypermiling is the art of fuel conservation practices in any type of vehicle. Hypermiler extraordinaire Wayne Gerdes takes the practice to extremes to prove its effectiveness, achieving record breaking MPGs in regular ol’ cars, such as a purported 59 mpg in a Honda Accord.

To combat the “pain at the pump” (overused phrase of the lustrum) during these “tough economic times” (overused phrase of the decade) anyone behind the wheel can practice these ~simple steps to increase fuel economy:

  1. Know Your Gas Milage
  2. Be a “Courteous Driver”
  3. Manage Red Lights
  4. Practice “Anti-Traffic” Methods
  5. Pace Yourself After Stops
  6. Utilize Accel on Your Cruise Control

Thanks Paulo

Campaign Platform?

Posted by on July 11, 2009 | One comment

Paris Chavez Broadcast Booth

On this the eve of the “not-so-highly-anticipated” announcement that incumbent Paris Chavez will indeed run for a fourth term as Albuquerque’s Mayor, we have to ponder…

Since petitioning the Supreme Court to disregard term limits in January 2008, Chavez has been unofficially campaigning by dominating news coverage, garnering headlines, and literally plastering his name and face on city issues and objects on the city’s dime.

Well, the dime’s up on that tawdry peep-show. And now that he’s going “official” the currently nauseating level of Paris Chavez coverage will likely hit a fever pitch. Already averaging at least 3:1 mentions over the legitimately declared candidates for Mayor we’re in danger of being exposed to even more gratuitous mentions of every portly move he makes or makes-up.

Brace yourselves – this “I see you, but you can’t see me” toilet may well be the jumping off point for the sitting Mayor’s campaign (pun intended). Turn that glass around and it’ll be, “You see me, but I can’t see you!” Allll the way through to October.

Is this the kind of transparency Albuquerque really needs? Exercise your vote on October 6th.

As brought to you here the “Cash For Clunkers” bill has come to fruition.

The Barack-o-tunity sweeping the nation’s airwaves in news reports and infinite car dealership ads does have requirements and restrictions, duh.

New Mexico Attorney General Gary King advises, “Read the fine print…” in a detailed news release assembled by his Consumer Protection Division.

KRQE

Plagued pugilist, Johnny Tapia was sent back to the clink yesterday after committing an alleged parole infraction by traveling within the state, but out of the city to aid in the search and raise awareness about his missing relative without notifying his parole officer.

Tapia will remain in jail until at least July 30 and faces additional “habitual offender” charges that could result in a one year sentence. Tapia’s 29-year-old cousin Aurthur Chavez remains missing.


KRQE Webcast

Yesterday Magistrate Court Judge Delilah Montano-Baca released a ~man arrested by authorities last week, who is charged with 42 (FORTY-TWO IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII II) counts of the child rape of his own granddaughters.

The judge released the suspect without bond or conditions. KRQE reports that the Sandoval County District Attorney is asking Judge Baca to reconsider her decision.

SAP – Poker Face? I Hardly Knew ‘er…

Posted by on July 8, 2009 | Comments Off

Gag-a

In a new segment called, SAP of the Day, we bring you the great expense whores hordes of lady birds are plunking down for the Lady Gag-a makeover.

The sensitive songstress makes headlines regularly with over-the-top garb and sculpted hair “styles”.

The Sun reports on the trend poking British pocketbooks starting at the top with wigs ranging from £93 – £499 ($130 – $699). The piece goes on to detail the prices and the places for acquiring the paint, shellac and apliques to achieve the Gag-a.

Here is a list of 10 ways to better spin your dime or your Euro:

10. Feed a village – Heifer.org

9. Thank a Veteran – VA Voluntary Services

8. Support needed change in your Government – e.g. Local Mayoral Race

7. Save an animal – National Humane Society

6. Give a birthday gift for those who have none – Birthday Wishes

5. Give just a little of your valuable time – All for Good

4. Buy a Pamper with Salma Hayek – Pampers Village

3. Help Brad Pitt – MakingitRightNOLA.org

2. Fill your Food Pantry

1. If you insist on dressing like a fame-whore, copy Paris Hilton – no look is cheaper.
