Ask The Eye,Clothes Make The Metrosexual

June 28, 2010

Dear Eye View,
I have been dating this guy for about three months. When we first met, I was struck by his gentleness, kindness and sensitivity.  I can express myself, all my quirky idiosyncrasies included, and not fear judgment or ridicule. He understands me and accepts me as I am. Which is why I’m having such a hard time with this dilemma: I’ve never dated anyone so sensitive before. He has his bad days, as we all do, but his bad days make him cry. His mood spirals down into an abyss of self-hatred and emotional despair.  He says that just seeing me and holding me boosts his mood considerably. I’ve tried to help him figure out how something like a tiff with his boss can make him feel like the world is ending before he turns on the tears. I’ve suggested therapy, but he gets defensive, and I don’t want to shatter the tiny bit of ego he has. The other (bigger) part of me just wants to yell, “For God’s sake, grow some balls!” When we started dating, I had the “wow, he could be the one that completes me thoughts. Now, I can’t imagine spending my life with this man, having kids, etc., because I feel he’s weak and it disgusts me. It’s infuriating because the rest of him is so great. I love him and want to see where this can possibly go, but if I can’t find a way to overcome this, then I may as well end it now.

Distressed

Dear Distressed

You start your letter rhapsodizing about this wonderful new guy and end it describing your fury and disgust. You love that you’ve found someone so sensitive to you, but can’t stand that he’s so sensitive. Make up your freakin mind. Are you looking for a sensitive dude or not. You have gone from thinking he is a work in progress to a real piece of work..Anyway, you need to get your mind right and give this guy a break. The Eye View wants to remind you that  clothes make the man. Get him a nice outfit, or get a girlfriend you dumbass. You will both feel better. Hope this helps.

Steve Jobs Says Be Careful How You Hold The Iphone 4,Consumer Reception Unclear

June 28, 2010

Apple boss Steve Jobs has responded to complaints about the new iPhone 4 losing its signal by telling users to ‘just avoid holding it in that way’.

Angry users have complained that the $500 phone’s reception suddenly plunges to almost zero when they simply hold it in their hand.

Dozens of videos have been placed on YouTube showing the iPhone 4 losing signal the moment the metal antenna that surrounds the edge of the new device is covered.

Jobs issued his bizarre advice as he responded to an email from a user on the Ars Technica technology news site who had complained about the sudden loss of signal.

In an astonishingly blunt response, Mr Jobs replied: ‘Just avoid holding it in that way. All phones have sensitive areas’. Hold the antenna more towards the middle and not along the bottom. Can you hear me now? Iphone 4 users can be sensitive too..

  

 

Obama Could Shut Down Internet For 4 Months Under New Emergency Powers Just Like China

June 27, 2010

President Obama will be handed the power to shut down the Internet for at least four months without Congressional oversight if the Senate votes for the infamous Internet ‘kill switch’ bill, which was approved by a key Senate committee yesterday and now moves to the floor.

The Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act, which is being pushed hard by Senator Joe Lieberman, would hand absolute power to the federal government to close down networks, and block incoming Internet traffic from certain countries under a declared national emergency.

In response to widespread criticism of the bill, language was added that would force the government to seek congressional approval to extend emergency measures beyond 120 days. Still, this would hand Obama the authority to shut down the Internet on a whim without Congressional oversight or approval for a period of no less than four months.

Fears that the legislation is aimed at bringing the Internet under the regulatory power of the U.S. government in an offensive against free speech were heightened further on Sunday, when Lieberman revealed that the plan was to mimic China’s policies of policing the web with censorship and coercion.

“Right now China, the government, can disconnect parts of its Internet in case of war and we need to have that here too,” Lieberman told CNN’s Candy Crowley.

Obama “Neo” wants to take control the Matrix from Drudge. Guess he doesn’t need consensus from rest of World for this..

 

Moody Eye At The Movies, Sex And The City 2, Kind Of A Drag

June 27, 2010

To begin with a shallow point …why have these women, photographed drearily and insanely costumed, become full-on drag queens? They’re barely human anymore, though in “Sex 2” the Manhattan women are coping with theoretically relatable problems and relationship tangles. In supremely art-directed splendor, Carrie ( Sarah Jessica Parker) and Big (Chris Noth) argue over whether to go out on the town, or eat in, and whether it’s bad to have a big flat-screen TV in the bedroom. Samantha ( Kim Cattrall, who always was the drag-queeniest of the lot) keeps attracting younger men with extremely firm buttocks.
Why do the Sex and the City women parade around as  full on drag queens?

Because everyone loves a parade..for over 40 years

Ask The Eye, Family Heirloom or Creepy Memorobilia

June 27, 2010

Dear Eye View,
My wonderful fiance decided to pop the question using his deceased mother’s wedding ring. He thinks it’s endearing and the start of a family tradition, and “we’ll just get it sized to fit you.” Well, frankly, it’s mortifying to me to wear a dead woman’s ring. Maybe I sound like a witch, because I don’t get the whole family bonding thing through jewelry being passed from one dead relative to another. However, his mom and my mom died at the same age—young—and it means a great deal to him, but I’m the one who’s gonna have to wear the thing.  

Help

Dear Help

I see where you are coming from. One person’s heirloom is another persons creepy memorbilia. Since you are not a sentimental person, and do not want a rememberance of a life cut short, tell him you would rather have creepy memorbilia. Tell him an engagement glove will do. Who knows, it might be worth something someday to other creepy- memorbilia- pedophile- loving one handed glove collectors. Hope this helps.

Libya Supports Deep Water Drilling Moratorium,Just Not Theirs

June 27, 2010

TRIPOLI, Libya — Libya will allow BP to begin drilling in its offshore deepwater region next month, despite the massive Gulf of Mexico oil spill, the head of Libya’s National Oil Co. said Sunday.

Shokri Ghanem, who serves as Libya’s de facto oil minister, said the April explosion of the Deepwater Horizon rig, and the subsequent spill, were “tragic,” but the oil industry is also moving into “new frontiers.”

 “An accident will not stop us from digging in this new frontier,” Ghanem said. “Life must go on, but we will learn a lot of lessons.”

Ghanem’s comments are the latest confirmation by the OPEC nation that it was planning to honor the contract it signed with BP in 2007 to drill in the Libyan deepwater region of the Mediterranean Sea.

BP has been battling sharp criticism over the incident which left 11 workers dead and millions of gallons of oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico.

Ghanem said that drilling at such a depth makes it difficult to know exactly what is happening.

“Accidents happen all the time. If an air crash takes place, we don’t stop air traffic,” said Ghanem. “So we have to continue but we take this step to learn more lessons,” he said.

If US moratorium is put in place, Oil Company Employers will leave the region for other countries and help turn parts of  Gulf Coast into Appalachia Part 2.

  

 

Michael Jackson Glove Sells For $190,000,Surprise Buyer

June 27, 2010

Bidders from around the world bought up Michael Jackson memorabilia worth nearly $1 million at an auction on the anniversary of his death, including $190,000 for the Swarovski-crystal-studded glove he wore on his 1984 Victory Tour. The bidding that began Friday on more than 200 items was “unlike anything we’ve ever experienced,” said Darren Julien of Julien Auctions, which ran the auction at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.

Some items, like the glove, brought 10 times more than their estimated value, he said.

The glove had been expected to sell for between $20,000 and $30,000. The $190,000 sale price included the buyer’s premium of $30,000, a standard industry fee that goes to the auction house, Julien said.

In the biggest suprise of the evening, it was disclosed the  glove’s winning bidder was Super Diva Iron Chef Cat Cora of the Cooking Channel. Cat said as part of her renegoiations with the Cooking Channel was the Jackson Glove. As the only female Iron Chef, “I thought it was important to add some additional glam to my iron chef wardrobe”.  Cora stated that the King of Pops glove should add both diamond studded  protection from kitchen  burns and knife nicks  as well as an added “celebrity  pop” to her Iron Chef performances. Mark Ecko, the Iron Chef America judge and  designer of the  new jackets for the Iron Chefs was pleased with the acquistion.

Cora hopes the addition of the glove, will help improve your current 57% winning percent, 7th place standing, on the Iron Chef, America. She hopes to use the glove in her next Iron Chef Episode. Paula Deen has lodged a complaint with Iron Chef Producers requesting use of the diamond studded oven mitt in her redneck kitchen.

 

Obama One Tax Pony, Wants Higher Taxes From Banks/US

June 26, 2010

President Barack Obama, fresh from a win on a sweeping overhaul of Wall Street regulations, on Saturday urged Congress to take up his proposal for a $90 billion, 10-year tax on banks as the next step in reform.

Obama wants to slap a 0.15 percent tax on the liabilities of the biggest U.S. financial institutions to recoup the costs to taxpayers of the financial bailout.

“We need to impose a fee on the banks that were the biggest beneficiaries of taxpayer assistance at the height of our financial crisis — so we can recover every dime of taxpayer money,” Obama said in his weekly radio and Internet address.

Obama seemingly unaware of where banks get their money wants to increase taxes on US..

Trapped Drunk Driver Opens Another Beer as Awaits Rescue

June 26, 2010

Paul Nigel Sneddon, 47, pleaded guilty to careless driving and drunken driving after being nearly three times over the legal alcohol limit in a district court in the city of Palmerston North, the Dominion Post newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Police found Sneddon, a former baker, trapped in his overturned Ford Laser on June 1, drinking a can of beer after he failed to take a corner properly and crashed through a wooden barrier, flipping his vehicle.

Defense lawyer Peter Young said that when Sneddon found he could not open the doors, “he had nothing else to do at that point, so he had another beer.”

 Sneddon said that he didn’t understand the problem, I was talking on the phone hands free..
