Oh my god, Israel wins. I will lay down and accept occupation. Seriously, automated gun sentries? What is this, Aliens? My thoughts on Avatar in a funnier way
Ok, here we go
So I saw Avatar in 3D last night. Now, generally, I am a geeky individual. I dig movies like this. Not to mention that James Cameron is responsible for a couple of the coolest fucking science fiction movies to date (namely, Aliens and the entire Terminator series), everyone and their mother was ranting about how awesome 3D was. So here are my thoughts. In simplest terms, it went a little like...

A tribute to Aime Cesaire
In the day or two of downtime, I have read both “Discourse on Colonialism” and “Notebook of a Return to the Native Land.” This seqment is by far my favorite: Words? Ah yes, words! Reason, I crown you evening wind. Your name voice of order? To me the whips corolla. Beauty I call you the false claim of the stone. But ah! my raucous laughter smuggled in Ah! my...

From earlier today
Ephrani (a student): “Musa, you Arab?” Me: “Yeah Ephrani, my dad’s Palestinian” Ephrani: “You don’t look Arab…” Me: “No?” Ephrani: “No, you look Rican” Me: “Rican?” Ephrani: “Yeah, Rican”

I'll take Israel for $2,000, Alex
So I can’t help but be really skeptical about this, but apparently Jeopardy is preparing to feature Israel as a clue for this up and coming year’s episodes. From Haaretz: I’ll take Israel for $2,000, Alex. That’s what contestants on “Jeopardy!” were saying November 23, when the famous quiz show included a Double Jeopardy category titled “A Journey...

Perhaps a Mission Statement
Ok, I want to do something with this, now that I have lots of time to write my thoughts and place in which to share them. I guess I want to use this blog not only as a repository for geekdom, in which I can complain about Hammurabi being a dick in CIV 4, but at the same time, Palestine-Israel commentary, because that shit is important. But if I am going to talk about Palestine Israel, I might as...

In my funemployment, I need things to do. Then Jesse showed me his blog. Which made me remember that I had one where I wrote down the crazed madness of a man who was alone on a college campus for three weeks. Now, it is a man crazed from poverty. And lacking in the job area, as anyone who reads Jesse’s blog can tell. Until January at least…
Post up mothafucka’s. Also, my shower makes a sound that is akin to the dead rising from the netherworld. Also, I finished season 1 of Star Trek, moving on to season 2.
BBC’s video player has a volume adjust knob. It goes to “11”. No, really.
It’s really not fair that George Lucas can release whatever fucking Star Wars he wants, and can count on people like me to pay money to see that fucking shit. It doesn’t matter how bad it is, but always, deep inside, there is that inkling of hope, hope that George will imbue his creation with a sense of amazingness that is the reason why I am a terrible terrible geek in the first...
Me: Hi mom. Mom: hi Musa. Me: How are you? Mom: Good, Ampty Re-Re is crazy. Me: Re-Re? Who the hell is that? Mom: Riyah! Me: Oh, well I didn’t know her nickname was Re-Re, it sounds like a rapper. Can I ask you something though mom? Mom: Yeah Me: I have lived in the US for like, 7 years now, why is it only in the past year that you fail to check what time it is before you call me? ...
No way. Really? Shit. I didn’t kill Simon? I killed your girlfriend? What? Wife? Shit, that’s worse. You’re pissed off, I understand, I did smoosh your wife to death. It was an accident. Not the fucking Cliff Bars! My Za’atar? Ok man, calm the fuck down. I understand, and Im sorry. Is there anything I can… shit, my fucking oats! Listen we need to sign a cessation...
So I get this four days ago, from some guy at UTexas. Palestinian muslims crime history In 1920s-30s, Palestinian Muslims committed massacre of Jews in Jewish land of Palestine murdering thousands of children and civilians. The murder was organized by the founder and supreme leader of the Arab Higher Committee, Haj Amin al Husseini, the Mufti of Jerusalem, and supported by British...
Simon. I didn’t mean it. I was startled. You were in the sink, I didn’t expect to see you there. I jumped a little, the cupcake tray was never meant to fall and crush you to death.
Simon you are the worst roommate ever. The magical days of us being friends are over. Stop shitting all over my apartment. Those almonds weren’t yours and you took them. All you do is take take take and what do I get? Your shit. On my plates. Simon, we need to talk about this really.

I was watching Sci Fi channel the other day when the Star Trek episode “Tapestry” came on. Its a very Picard-centric episode, and we get to glimpse into the young academy years of Jean-Luc. Here’s what happens: So Jean-Luc gets his shit fucked by a taryon beam that hits him in the heart and kills him. You see, he has an artificial electronic heart, and it blows the fuck up...
Aunt Sandy, School starts up in another two weeks i believe, but next week is Freshmen orientation, and I am an HCO (Honor Code Orienteer), so I will be really doing stuff next week. Do you know of any creative ways of getting rid of mice, per chance? Musa Musa, We had rats in our attic and Charlie got rid of them with bob cat urine. There is a store here in town that sells it.
