One of the great joys of having a blog is you never know who might contact you out of the blue, especially when your blog is subtitled, “Lyrics, Literature and Lunacy.”
Here’s a shout out I received this morning from the Netherlands:
From: MS de Heus < *****>
Hello Mike Cornelison,
I am Mitch de heus from the Netherlands and I have a request…
On your website I found a photograph of Obama. It is lokated here.
I am specially interested in this photo and I was wondering if you could e-mail me the original footage for me to observe.
This I wil use in a discussion about the claim that one of Obama’s bodyguards would be considered a ‘shape-shifter.
My best guess is that the man has some abnormality on the right site of his face , but the photo is not in high quality. I think this is done for internet purposes.
If you could help me out I would be thankful.
That would be in response to this photo from an earlier blog post:
So I emailed him the original without the gun icons, though unfortunately, it’s in no higher detail than the one I used on the blog post. Hopefully he’ll be able to do something with it, though.
Knock yourself out, Mitch! Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Almost as crazy as the video is the guy who uploaded it, calling the video “Walmart Black Friday Fighting Over Phones During 2012, White People At Like Animals.”
There go those white people again! See how they “at” like animals?
I guess all the Blacks, Hispanics and Asians I saw in the scuffle were simply my imagination. (What a nutjob!) Checking out his other uploads, he’s just another typical Obama lovin’ racist.
If the video’s still playing above, there should be a YouTube link in the bottom right of the player if you want to go to YouTube and let the uploader know what you think about his characterizing this video as “White People At Like Animals.”
Some of the money quotes from the website I found it on:
Source: WOAI Radio
Jenna Talackova, the 23-year-old transsexual contestant who was set to compete in the Miss Universe Canada beauty pageant this May, has been disqualified. “She did not meet the requirements to compete despite having stated otherwise on her entry form,” the organization says in a press release. “We do, however, respect her goals, determination and wish her the best.”
No word on which “requirements” Talackova lacked.
Talackova began hormone therapy at 14 and underwent sexual reassignment surgery at 19. She was listed on the official Miss Universe Canada website as a contestant until it was discovered that she was transgender.
I’ll admit it, when I think of transsexuals, the first thing that comes to mind is people like Chaz Bono, people who were somewhere inbetween the two sexes to begin with and probably are not attractive whether you leave them as born or change their sex. I also have this theory that the more homophobic a person is, the more they have latent homosexual desires they’re trying to repress, so I take pride in never worrying about doing anything people might say “looks gay” but even for me, this is a bit jarring. You think of people you might get together with and you think, “Oh yeah, I could totally tell if it was some man masquerading as a woman.” (No offense, Danny Bonacude.)
Look again at the photo and realize that Jenna’s hormone therapy started at 14, but this is a person who had a penis dangling between “her” legs until the age of 19. Look at that photo again – here is a person who had a penis for 19 years and just a couple years after that penis was sliced and diced and she was legal aged, she could walk into a bar on any given night and I bet you a dozen men would try to by her a drink and another couple dozen men other would just check her out and wish they had the courage to even talk to her in the first place.
But imagine this, for the one guy in the bar who might have been lucky enough to take her home (and I have no idea if she ever did, but imagining she may have had a one night stand or two) just imagine if after taking her home and bragging to his friends about this hottie he’d banged, maybe one of his friends had googled this Jenna girl and the truth had gotten out and all of a sudden his friends were telling him, “Dude, you went home with a dude!” From what may have been one of his greatest conquests ever, it would probably go to something he’d cringe at – something his friends would never let up on.
As I look at this photo of “Jenna” a final time, this “chick” is so hot, whether meeting her in a bar or at a grocery store, there is no way you could ever imagine anything other than pure, sexy woman, and I’m trying to sort this out and all I can come up with is two possible conclusions: either science is so good it’s wrong, or maybe some people really are born with the wrong sex. I don’t know which it is, but I’m wondering if it makes me gay the fact that I got turned on by Jenna’s sexy picture.
