The Houston Area Ghostbusters may be passing on a zombie walk that’s set to go on next weekend.
The one we just did this past weekend was fun. Zombies, upon discovering a Subway on the corner they were stopped at waiting for the police escort to wave them through, flailed against the windows and groaned “SUBWAY! EAT FLESH! EAT FLESH!!” much to the amusement of the patrons therein. Zombies lurched in the general direction of cars and pedestrians and nobody got hurt or angry or offended.
The one next weekend has rules that make me wonder if there is some variant of zombie somewhere that politely shambles in a straight line with its eyes forward and hands at its sides, groaning softly so as not to disturb any surrounding living people.
Oh, and it also bans all weapons including “imaginary invisible ones.” I am not even making that up. ThinkGeek is doing some kind of Random Crap giveaway today and there was a blank on the entry form for a stupid question one might have; I linked to these rules and asked them if they thought I could get away with keeping my imaginary invisible gun holstered or if I should just leave it in my imaginary invisible car.
…yeah, I’m totally drawing a Polite Zombie right now. BRRRAAAAAAAINS plz. … …THAAAAAANK YYYRRRRRGH. … …NAAAAAAAPKRN plz. *dab dab*
So some fucking douchebag who apparently has entirely too much free fucking time on his useless fucking hands filed a DMCA takedown notice on my Gallery. To which Dreamhost reacted not by notifying me that someone claimed OMG COPYRITE INFRINGMUNT about something on my website and giving me the chance to remove the infringing content myself, but by taking it upon themselves to rename the directory where my gallery lives and BREAK THE DAMN THING.
So I found and removed the infringing content (the hard way because again, Dreamhost BROKE MY FUCKING GALLERY INSTALL), because it was not worth making a federal fucking issue out of. Do you know why it was not worth making a federal fucking issue out of?
Because here’s the fucking ~*infringing content*~ right here:
Yes, apparently this asshole has nothing better to do than file DMCA takedown notices for MOTIVATOR MACROS WITH PICTURES OF BACON ON THEM.
But you know what, I do not have the time or energy to deal with filing a goddamn DMCA counter-notification over a goddamn bacon motivator. So I deleted it. And made good and sure to attach the ~*infringing file*~ to the angry e-mail I sent Dreamhost about this stupid bullshit.
I have said it before and I will say it again. If there is something on my website that you think belongs to you, ASK ME TO REMOVE IT LIKE A MOTHERFUCKING ADULT, DON’T HIDE BEHIND A FUCKING DMCA NOTICE.
I can only guess that this was made to be shown to children at the dentist’s office.
THIS IS WHY PEOPLE ARE AFRAID OF THE DENTIST, FOR FUCK’S SAKE
Dear Gov. Goodhair,
And okay, as art cars go that one was kind of subdued but seriously, what kind of idiot walks into a parking lot, passes up a whole bunch of perfectly nondescript cars, and goes “WOOHOO I’M GONNA STEAL THIS ONE THAT IS EASILY IDENTIFIABLE BECAUSE OF ALL THE STUFF ALL OVER IT, IT IS PROBABLY SAFE TO SAY EVERYONE NEARBY KNOWS WHOSE CAR IT IS AND ON TOP OF THAT THE ART CAR COMMUNITY IN HOUSTON AND EVERYONE WHO ENJOYS THE ART CAR PARADE WILL BE WATCHING OUT FOR THIS CAR WHEN WORD GETS OUT THAT IT HAS BEEN STOLEN, I CANNOT SEE HOW THIS CUNNING PLAN COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG :D”
So being newly addicted to Zumba I was bopping around Amazon looking at the various DVDs and… well, take a look at this cap (click to embiggen) and guess where I went like this.
Go on, guess. And yes, I clicked “no” with relish when asked if I found that review helpful, and also reported the shit out of it.
protip: saying “I’m not a racist but I hate them illegalz and I boycott Mexican restaurants and I’m glad there are white people in a workout video” is a lot like saying “I’m not a duck but I have a bill and feathers and webbed feet and I swim and I live in a park and eat bread crumbs.”
Or, why I do not have my U-verse hardware and thus have no Internets at home

I got rid of a bunch of junk over the weekend, including a stack of ancient game magazines. I had to keep this one to scan and show you, though…
Apparently, either DeeJay is eleven feet tall or Cammy is a halfling. That might actually explain where the fuck her midsection went, though.
Not even going to start on the faces because oh dear God.
