Sexual Fascinations

Why are we obsessed with sex? It’s about the pleasure we feel when the act is or has been performed. Not only before and during but after. It amazes me everyday just how much and many things we see, hear and do are related to or can be paralleled to sex, a  sexual term, act or thought.

As I was surfing the net I came across two words that were talked about on the George Lopez, Lopez tonight show.  I found that both words were being highly searched out on the net.

Necrophilia….

All I could think of at the time was Necromongers they are a race of biological  humans that  are a militaristic theocracy led by a military religious ruler known as the Si.pan.

They practice a religion known as Necroism. The primary belief of this religion is that the line dividing life from death is a deception imposed upon the human race by alien races masquerading as gods with the intent of enslaving all humans. This revelation was brought about by the discovery of ancient stone tablets that outline in precise detail that man was created to do the works of those that created them.

The ultimate destination for the Necromongers is a place called the Underverse, which is described as another universe in which life is cherished and even the dead are brought back to life. The Underverse is both the afterlife of the Necromongers and the future of the people arrived at through a two-step process:

1. The elimination of the curse of human decay and aging.
2. The reanimation of the dead.

Entrance to the Underverse is restricted to those who follow the Necromonger religion; those that refuse to bow to other races or otherwise worship anything, human, alien, alive, or dead. For the Necromongers, any form of worship is an abomination.

This was from the movie, “The Chronicles of Riddick“, with Vin Diesel, I just love him!

However even though this was not the true definition of necrophilia there is a parallel thread death.

Necrophilia ~ an erotic attraction to corpses

A necromonger could be a necrophilia, huh.

Hear George talk about necrophilia @ 5:10 in clip

He also speaks of a happy ending. Now I am old and must be very naive cause all I have ever known about a happy ending was in the fairytale stories or Chinese food. Oh sorry that’s happy family, oops!

Happy ending is a term used when males go to a massage/spa house and receive the massage on the genitals

Well George took the show to the streets and asked passers-by very interesting thought provoking questions and happy ending was on of them.

Hear about the happy ending @ 1:46 minute into the video clip.

Both of these terms were highly searched for on Google
Necrophilia was #2 @ 8AM EST and Happy Ending #38. We do know that these statistics do change minute to minute but I anticipate that all day today these will show up high on the searches.

Yesterday was the premier show for Lopez tonight with George Lopez and I do like George however I felt a bit slighted. Maybe he is saving the his special talents for subsequent shows but your first show has to be an attention getter and to grab your audience. I was a bit surprised that he didn’t come out stronger with his stand up act. I kept feeling that it was soon to come but it never did.

The guest were great and kept my attention and maybe that is the main focus. I will watch a few more times to see if this is the case. I am sure that the big wigs are watching the reviews and will tweak what they need to.

When someone in the audience asked Kobe Bryant why he doesn’t tweet on Twitter.

He said he doesn’t know what Twitter is while he was sporting his new Black Mamba Watch.  George could of chimed in and impromptu announcement contest to find someone to work with Kobe on Twitter. That is what people tune into for the unexpected.

At 0:46 seconds  into the  video clip

One thing is for sure he does have an audience so much that if he tells people to do something they will. As proof of necrophilia and happy ending being #2 and #38 on Google search.

Good luck George and we hope that you will have a happy ending, lol!

Look who will turn 40?

Did you happen to see Google’s home page yesterday?  I thought it was quite cute the legs of Big Bird replaced the “L” in the word Google. Google has always amazed me with their creativity and why not, this  is what they are about, being creative and cutting edge.

Big Bird

I thought to myself something must be going on.  On November 10th ,2009 Sesame Street will be 40 years old what a history. Wow, that is a long time for a educational TV show to be airing. Talk about content and keeping up with the times.  Content is a subject bloggers  are faced with in every blog, good content.

Executive Producer Carol-Lynn Parente state, “When you turn on your TV on November 10,  “You’ll see a brand-new and spectacularly beautiful opening sequence. We’re also launching an entirely new format for the show — the magazine format of Sesame Street, which has been evolving over the years, has been officially replaced with what we’re calling a ‘block’ format. And it’s just wonderful.”

I remember watching Sesame Street as a kid. Ugh, I drastically dislikedOscar, the grouch Oscar the grouch in his trash can throwing trash everywhere. Even with that it made me aware of many things green, lol! I always thought that Big Bird was just to big for me but gave him his props. Elmo has been a big hit with the kids. I remember the toy Tickle Me Elmo drove me nuts but the kids loved em and the toy wasn’t aimed at adults although I know a few adults that bought the toy for themselves, hmmm. He brought out the child in many!

 

 

bert-and-ernie

Ernie and Bert, what pals, and of course we can’t forget Cookie Monster that blue fella. Who couldn’t love him eating chocolate chip cookies and throwing around everywhere. Brings back childhood memories.

Google hasn’t forgotten him either while using his big eyes to represent the “O’s” in the world Google for today’s home page. I love it. I suppose that everyday up to Sesame Streets anniversary on the 10th we will see some creative endeavor by Google to represent this auspicious occasion.

 

 

Cookie Monster

 

First Lady Michelle Obama will be airing on the show on the 10th. I think I’ll turn in for the birthday celebration. Come join me and sing along.

WTG Google! Congratulations Sesame Street!

So far artists such as U2, 50 Cent and Kanye West will have their videos sponsored on the site.

I knew they weren’t finished with YouTube when they bought it, lol!

Barack-in and Bar-ollin the Economy!

I was glad to see in the news this morning that President-elect Obama is getting right to business with addressing the state of the economy. From the associated press it seems that President-elect is getting busy and taking no prisoners to address this horrid state our country is in at present. He is gathering and probably speaking as I am writing this with key financial and academia authorities like Xerox, Time Warner, Google about what the government is going to do about our economy. Key figures, my favorite Warren Buffet will also be participating via phone a who endorsed President-elect Obama during his campaign.


President-Elect Barack Obama in Chicago full story


Barack Obama

Not only is President-elect Obama meeting with key financial and academia figures but he is also asking the American people for their help and opinions of what the government should do about the economy. Now if this isn’t true democracy being practiced I don’t know what is. If you are so inclined to let our President-elect out ,as he asked for in his acceptance speech on Tuesday night, then here is the web site where you can do that.

Go to President-elect Obama’s official website to help him out he is asking us!

I just love this when over the past decade has any president asked for help from the public and sincerely meant it? I am so excited for us as a country and feel that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Although we realize it will be a long run because of our countries current state. I am willing to do my part as an American citizen to help solve some of these issues no matter how small. I believe that if each of us does at least one thing to help our government heal us we will be much better off. There are alot of people that want to get on board with this. As President-elect Obama says, “Join us”!

Overwhelmed???!!!

OVERWHELMED???!!!

As I sit here at the PC thought I would take time to ask are you overwhelmed? As I awoke this morning my brain was hurting from all the internet information that I have researched over the past months about internet marketing, promoting, product sourcing and you name it I have done it.

Forget the fact that my nickname from my friends and family is Ms. Information, watch it now careful how you say that, we all from time to time get overwhelmed.

With the MySpace, Facebook, Youtube, MyBlogLog, eBay, Amazon, Ecrater, Craiglist, MSN, Alexa, SEO, Yahoo, Google, Wagglepop, Ioffer, Jott, Twitter, stand-alone websites, subscribed newsletters, email, blogging, e-books, forums, membership sites, video, talk radio shows, Web 2.0 now web 3.0 (‘the intelligent Web’), my friend your friend and every bodies friend, it’s a wonder that there are still strangers in the world. PHEW!!!

I just sometimes have to stop and punt, relax and take the load off. Being a research and information geek, love the stuff, it was bound to happen sometime and more times than we would like to admit. I tell ya there are times when I just can’t take anymore! OMG! Information and technology just keep expanding and expanding. The more there is the more I have to know. Forget knowledge is power how about knowledge is addicting!

Yeah I know there are ways to reduce this overwhelming feeling but oblige me for a moment in my vent to say it is just sometimes to much!

The first part on the way to recovery is yes to admit it and then sit back and work through it the best you can.

Now isn’t this ironic that I am blogging about this and using the exact technology that is a part of my overwhelming feeling. Believe it or not there is some therapy here just being able to blog about it and get it out.

Well now that I have done that time to get back to the information and research seeking mode. I heard someone say, “If you ever feel overwhelmed just think you could be deceased.” Kind of morbid but there is some truth to that, huh?

Here’s to you my overwhelmed friend, now go and relax! 🙂

Do you like roller coaster rides?

They are at it again Microsoft and Yahoo. I blogged on this story sometime ago and now they are at it again. Now that Yahoo stock is trading anywhere now between $21.00 – $22.19, it is stated that Yahoo stockholders wouldn’t goff at the $33 per share price Microsoft offered a few months ago.

Who knows where this ride is going to take us. It’s a timing game and who can wait out the longest, Yang, Microsoft or Yahoo shareholders. This is the first real boost Yahoo! has gotten since announcing less than two weeks ago that it had broken off discussions with Microsoft about selling its search business, an alternative to an outright takeover.

Try to figure this one out:
YAHOO

What I think……I’m going to go for another spin on the roller coaster and see if I can see the forest for the trees.

Microsoft backs off from Yahoo hostile takeover

After a turning battle of withdrawal Microsoft has backed off of the hostile takeover that they planned for Yahoo. Siting that it would not be in the best interest for them at this time. They had increased their bid for Yahoo to be $41.5 billion, or $37 per share. What seems to the be issue is that Yahoo executives wanted $38 per share in their last Wednesday’s meeting.

Microsoft being in the third seat of internet search engine companies wanted to chip away at the number one spot (Google). Competition is the essence of business. But Microsoft felt it wasn’t a good business move at this time to takeover Yahoo because Yahoo with their negotiations with Google in an alliance would cede too much power to Google in the lucrative search advertising market.

What I think….. One can only wait and see what is to come next over this year as to whether Microsoft will step up to the plate again and try their hand at bat. I personally hope that whatever the outcome Yahoo executives will use their heads in their decisions. If a merger is to be sanctioned by them goodness let it be with Google.

Microsoft vs Yahoo
