Days 662- 668 <{ }>
Sunday-Saturday, January 10-January 16, 2010

This week for me was very cold, snowy and rather uneventful.

Day 662 {Japanese Show imitating Bolt}
Sunday, January 10, 2009

Went church then picked up my friend and we played lots of little Big Planet.

Japanese TV shows (including animes) are somewhat known to mock or make fun of people from other races. Either subtly or out rightly... Sometimes its just good plain fun though... Check out this mockery of Bolt and Gay http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHfj_4XjT8I

Some people thought it was racist but I found it quite hilarious... I am not sure how racism is shown in it though, what do you think???

Day 665 {Pray For H
aiti}
Wednesday, January 13, 2009


This morning was difficult for me to get out of bed and go to work. Because it was cold and snowing heavily. The picture here is at the school that I went to today. Gave the teachers at this school a snack from the Philippines.

My heart goes out to the people of Haiti at this time, with that devastating earthquake... Possibly killing more than 100,000 people...while possibly injuring and/or leaving homeless over 3,000,000. Darn thats more than the population of Jamaica!!!! ... And this conservative American, republican, "Christian" guy name Pat Robertson, had this to say. Watch the video on the link below....

Pat Robertson really should change his name to Predictable Racist. Whenever something bad happens to black people somewhere in the world, PR is always there to make sure everyone knows how cursed the race of Ham really is. Yeah, read up on that — the whole ridiculous notion of the Curse of Ham (it was really Canaan who was cursed but the truth never stopped crazy right-wing fundamentalist preachers before, why should it now?) because it feeds into why Pat Robertson could even hold this idea in his head. Hint: Hamite = black and the so-called curse of Ham has been used in the past to defend slavery.

Day 666 {More on Hating Egg}
Thursday, January 14, 2010


Was falling asleep at my desk today after lunch.... The lunch today included egg but they were smart enough not to give me any this time...

Because Japanese people love egg so much, most of them can't quite wrap their heads around the reason why I hate it. I just do... Also most of them keep asking me why over and over and over again after explaining to them like 100 times the same thing !!!

Day 667 {}

Went work in snow again... I just can't manage this thing at all. I'm so happy that its the weekend. Although it seem like it took forever to come.

Day 668 {
Avatar and Call Of Duty MW2 In the Billions}
Saturday,
January 16, 2010

Was planning to go see Avatar today but will have to put it off until tomorrow. So I simply stayed in all day.


Avatar the movie and Call of duty 4 modern warfare 2 - The game are making some huge profits.. And I am yet to see the movie, or buy the game... Hopefully soon though

For an entertainment property to hit $1 billion in sales is a very rare feat. For two separate properties to pass the 10-figure mark at the same time may well be a first.

On Wednesday, Activision Blizzard announced that its mega-hit video game, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, had crossed the billion-dollar mark, after just two months on store shelves--and the entertainment industry's single-day sales record. That milestone came shortly after it was announced that James Cameron's uber-blockbuster movie, "Avatar," had also reached that financial promised land.

To be sure, these are just round numbers, and don't have any formal meaning, but there's no arguing with the fact that it sure sounds good for the entertainment business to be sporting two separate billion-dollar titles at the same time, especially since they come from such different corners of the world.

Richard, bwoy sorry bout the bad buy wid the 160GB... Yuh got it sold yet???
I don't think is the food caused me to get sick like that because the symptoms were more cold or flu like... coughing, throat pain and spitting out mucous etc... No stomach ache or anything like that... So it must have been the climate change or somebody give me it...

Yeah Stewart, to each his own... Japanese people have their own way of doing stuff. Maybe the majority of Japanese people would not find our Jamaican shows funny or interesting either.

@School Pic - the place look white nuh rahtid Dave. I'm sure that must look impressive the first time you see it BUT unwelcoming every other time.

@160GB HD - it look like i may get a sale for the HD. Somebody email me yesterday about it so hopefully it come through.

@MW2 - didn't know COD-MW2 make that much money. I don't like it (i.e. the multiplayer) but everything is acceptable. Stewart have back the Playstation in Mobay so i won't be able to kill you online yet.

@Egg - why u don't like egg boss?

@Racist thing - i didn't think it was racist at all. How them expect a white person to play a black part - them nuh must put on some blackness - lol. Anybody who say is racist need to Go EASY!!!

You NEED to get MW2... the game simply too tuff for its own good, and I completely agree with it making that much money
