Japanese Whalers Caught Lying

After super conservative fuckwits jumped up and down while the mainstream media was being ambiguous about the ramming of the Ady Gil, originally referring to it as ‘allegedly rammed’, more video has come to light, and even the mainstream media are releasing the footage from the Ady Gil’s cameraman around about the place that shows without doubt the Japanese vessel moved to ram the Ady Gil, which was floating dead in the water with all crew on deck taking a break, including the captain.

Earlier in the week, Japanese whalers and their puppet ‘research’ groups in New Zealand (who have, off the record, been showing strong pro-whaling flags backing Japan, in exchange for Japanese funding of course) claimed that the Ady Gil pulled in their way at the last minute causing the collision and went as far as demanding that Australia intervene against Sea Shepherd.

Captain Paul Watson of Sea Shepherd announced that $170,000 was pledged in the first few hours after the incident while more was flooding in following the screening of a Sea Shepherd advert featuring Transformers actress Isabel Lucas to replace the $3,000,000 dollar stealth yacht the whalers sunk.

Captain Watson also praised Australian Acting Prime Minister Julia Gillard – who has been accused by Japan of inflaming public opinion and making diplomatic resolution of the whaling dispute harder to realise – for speaking out. “Julia Gillard is the only politician who has had the courage to say something about the illegal activities Japan has undertaken; the rest of them are hiding behind Japan’s kimonos as far as I can see.” It’s a fair call given pre-election promises by Kevin Rudd that he would engage the Japanese illegal whaling activities under the guise of research, amongst other intra-political matters along the employment lines, and delivered on none of them.

Captain Watson was especially scathing of New Zealand Foreign Affairs Minister Murray McCully, who has said it was not the NZ Government’s responsibility to send armed vessels to protect people “determined to break the law”. “The Minister of Foreign Affairs has made ignorant and unsubstantiated accusations and he should apologise and if he refuses to apologise he should be asked to resign,” Mr Watson said. A fair call given the almost blatent public backing of Japan’s piratical acts over the past decade in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary.

“How dare he take Japan’s side in this issue against his own citizens? If a Sea Shepherd ship had rammed and sunk a Japanese ship, there would be no hesitation in sending a Navy ship to the Southern Ocean with a warrant of arrest.” It’s unfortunate no governments are taking any action, especially in light of the new evidence that the Japanese vessel intentionally rammed and sunk the yacht.

Below is the only footage to go by prior to the release of footage from the Ady Gil’s cameraman, yes you have to click this to view it, but here’s two views, one from a Sea Shepherd ship and another from the pirate whalers (language warning ahoy): –

Tik Tok Parody Video

Two things that made me laugh so hard I almost wee’d.

Incest + Saatchi & Saatchi = Toyota?

In the nastiest piece of advertising filth to hit the face of the globe Toyota really went in balls and all with this little ditty. I’ve got pretty crass humour, but tbh I didn’t even find this mildly amusing, and I’m glad that the whole hairy armpitted muff diving feminist lobby is raging at these twats, the marketing execs behind this should be hung drawn and quartered, or at least sacked and damned to the pits of advertising and marketing lecturing at some shitty third rate university in Uzbekistan.

This is one of the many adverts in a long line that have been massively sub par released from what used to be the hoity toity brand of Saatchi & Saatchi, their most recent succession of adverts have been either abysmal quality on par with a second or third year university project, or utterly offensive. Check out the advert below, it’s probably the first and last thing you’ll knowingly see by this ailing advertising firm. It’s doubtful that familial rape and incest will get many brownie points with future clients.

“The people at Toyota have besmirched their brand with this squalid effort, featured above, which revolves around a creepy play on words in which a father discusses her daughter’s virginity and sexual prowess with her young boyfriend.” says one angry journo-blogger, “It almost defies belief that a major company would associate itself with this garbage. It’s offensive on so many levels – the kids in the ad look really young, the idea of a father discussing his daughter in such a fashion is a total gross out, there’s a stupid hubba-hubba tit joke, the “give her a pounding in any direction” line, the girl at the end saying she’s ready to blow. In a perverse way it’s a credit to the creators that they managed to jam so much tasteless and desperately unfunny crap into just one minute and 14 seconds.”

Toyota are ubiquitously pointing the finger at their commissioned advertising firm, claiming they selected the ad ‘at arms length’ by letting Saatchi & Saatchi handle it exclusively, but regardless some balls are going to be getting kicked, and with humour this fucking low brow and lame it’s worthwhile.

There’s one line, as corny as I’d expect from S&S to drop, which you won’t hear their execs saying in relation to their plummeting share prices, “Oh what a feeling!” 🙂

Norway Spiral, Sky Phenomena

A true UFO was spotted in the early hours of the 9th of November, 2009 in Norway. What started off as a blue light soaring up from behind a mountain stopped mid-air, quickly morphing into a giant spiral white spiral on the end of a concaved cone of light, bending far more than a cone of light should in on itself then hung in the sky for about ten to twelve minutes, depending on the eyewitnesses’ account. It then disappeared completely. It was filmed by dozens of people from different angles, with one piece of footage zooming in to the end of the cone of blue light, depicting what appears to be a large plume of red hued smoke similar to that of a very lage bush fire.

Different responses have occured, with various special interest groups offering vague explainations from atmospheric phenomena to large hadron collider paranoia through to a ‘failed icbm test by the Russians’, the latter usually coming with the caveat that it was from an ‘anonymous source within the Russian military’ (see: bullshit).

Other less outlandish theories even dabble in the fourth dimensional cross-over, a natural worm hole opening, through to a micro galaxy collision with our atmosphere, the latter of which often cites the vacuous hole left behind as a mini black hole after the micro galaxy collapsed in on itself, shedding it’s orbiting mass.

The mainstream media has run with the ‘runaway rocket’ story far too swiftly and buried it pretty fast, as a google search will yield as far as very little material being out there on it outside of batshit insane conspiracy theorist sites. Thankfully a lot of Norwegians upped their footage to YouTube so we’re inundated with footage but very few reasonable sources are willing to talk or comment about it.

Any and all of the potential explanations, regardless how outlandish, may be possibilities, but all I’m going to do right now is show you some photos and some video and let you make up your own minds, please comment if you find this interesting.

Borderlands: New Haven Farming

Borderlands is grabbing a lot of attention lately in the gamer world, but I’m not going to review it at the moment, merely help folks with another awesome walk through, this time with easy loot item farming. This is one of the quickest farming routes for New Haven, one of the better farming spots, it’s a two minute run and grabs everything aside from the easter egg basement one (which requires completion of “Another Piece of the Puzzle” to activate.)

Using this route you will find Eridian / Alien guns every 3-4 runs, one of the best strats for maximum farming skills would be leveling through multiplayer to mid to high 40s, avoiding self-progression, then jump someones completed playthrough 2 with level 49-51 mobs, whilst going with a scavenger spec, try and grab a Scavenger Class Mod artifact, one sweet one is specced:

+3 Team Scavenge Extra Items
+2 Swipe Skill
+3 Out for Blood Skill
+2 Team Find Rare Items

Anyway, good luck, and as with all my other walk throughs, if you find it handy, retweet it and @bashpr0mpt so I know someone got some use out of it; without encouragement my lazy will kick in and I’ll write far less walk throughs. 😛
