The place I live in is great. Rent is cheap, the place is relatively large for a flat, I get my own garage for the car and we’re 10 minutes walk from the beach…

Unfortunately, the flat dynamics have changed since Swedish flatmate 1′s friend moved in.

Everyone thinks having two blonde Swedish female flatmates is a fantasy. It’s just bloody painful. They are a bit anal in the non-pleasureable way. Swede 1 is a bit condescending – Mensa doesn’t teach people personal communication skills. Swede 2 is a neurotic.

Swede 1 keeps inviting her family members in and they just sit at home and don’t go out… so now, the people paying rent to people freeloading ratio is 3:3.

Yeah. The place feels like a backpacker’s hostel. I’ve got to get out of here before I lose my mind.

PS I can’t believe Heidi Klum is marrying Seal. Damn lucky musicians. He’s so ugly too.

There is a lot of corruption going on. I think the Olympics is basically an excuse to get the West Side football stadium built. It’s one of very few ways that you could maybe get the public to at least say “well, okay, I guess we have to.” Because, no one really wants that shit either. Except for the Jets, and Bloomberg is obviously in bed with them for whatever reason.

It’s total bullshit, and it’s enough to make me want to not vote for Bloomberg even though in general (and I know this is a minority view), I really like him.

Y’know, the Claw and Jumpman is not unlike comics being made by full-grown men today, here: http://www.fortthunder.org/comix/

No denying. Heidi Klum is a beautiful German woman who wants a beautiful Green Card or something. :)

Covering both topics:

1) Surprised Bernie didn’t use this for his obligatory 4% of his comics having a reference to Lindsay Lohan.

That said, I would have said the poster is of Petra Nemcova, although the timing is rather insensitive.

2) I’m torn on whether or not I would want the Olympics in NYC. On the one hand, I would love to have them here just because as a sports fan. However, there would be complete traffic nightmares, the boost to the economy could be boom or bust (the 1976 Summer Olympics killed Montreal, but the 1984 Summer Olympics was a huge boost to Los Angeles), and there’s enough protesting any sporting venue to be built in New York (including the Nets’ proposed arena in Brooklyn) that there would be headaches for 7 years.

If Bloomberg really wants a stadium, he has 5 months to get it done. The IOC vote is in July, and I really think it will take a lot for NYC to win the vote. I think too many people will vote for a European city (London or Paris being the favorites), there is enough anti-American sentiment to have people not vote for an American city, and with the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver, the IOC might want the 2012 Games in Europe (although this is the least important factor). After the IOC vote, Bloomberg loses a lot of his bargaining if the Olympic city is not New York. At that point, they might as well build it in Queens.

Dean, of course their is corruption. The initial price on the land (the West Side Yards) was going to be $100 million until they had a public forum on it. Then the assessor (I think it is the assessor) said the land is slightly more valuable than that, more like $1 billion. Which is why Cablevision put out a $600 million bid on the land last week. At this point Bloomberg is behind the eight ball.

you gotta be careful, he didn’t say anything about their looks at all
a blonde musk ox is still blonde

uh…..
it’s not a fantasy to have them as roomates, roomates of any kind other than demons or aliens suck. It’s a fantasy to have them in your harem.

The west side stadium isn’t solely a part of the olympic bid, and its important to notice that all the propaganda against is by the Cablevision-MSG group that doesn’t want to lose its monopoly on stadium events in the city. Look for their names at the bottom of sappy and pandering ads about closing firehouses and juicing children.

The Nets arena in BKLYN also is being used as Olympic fodder. Not only do I not want the Olympics in NYC, I certainly don’t want them used as an excuse to eminent domain a bunch of lower income housing, in favor of more traffic-luring shit McJobs at the fucking Target and its equivalent evil suburban spawn. Atlantic and Flatbush is already a pain in the ass for traffic, and they want to put a *basketball arena* there? Please. “Hey baby, our SUV strollers don’t stand out enough on 7th Ave in Park Slope anymore. Wanna go to the Childrens’ Place in the new mall on Atlantic?”

Oh, not to mention that they want to tear down the best bar in Brooklyn, Freddy’s, to do it.

Fuck all that shit. And I vote.

man, claw and jumpman reminds me of the comics i used to make. i ahd one called “Wolf-Man” ab out this nerdy guy (okay he was jsut supposed to be me when i grew up but i assumed iw as goign to look nerdy) who’s walking down the street and finds a necklace that turns him into a were-wolf, but the best part was his enemies were all cyborg were-wolves. i did a few more comics, one aobut a mercenary living in the australian outback who has to save a baby from a hotel full of ninjas, and another about a super spy who steals… something from… somebody… then slides down the side of a casino to escape. the detaisla re hazy because it was mostly just a vehicle for me to draw a guy in a white tuxedo sliding down the sloped edge of a casino at rapid speed with a huge cloud of dust behind him. come to think of it these are actually pretty good ideas… i mean, cyborg were-wolves? that’s gold, baby!

Does this really need to be spelled out?

He can’t put it up with both hands because he’s masturbating with one hand, it’s a poster of Heidi Klum (allegedly) and thus he’s struglling to erect the poster.

Just so I get this straight:

Heidi Klum engaged to Seal.
Paulina Porzikova married (still!) to Ric Ocsaek.
Christie Brinkley married (for a while) to Billy Joel.
Julia Roberts married (for a tad) to Lyle Lovett.
Patsy Kensit married (for a couple of years) to Liam Gallagher.

Man, I got into the wrong profession.

Don’t forget:
Anna Kournikova is engaged to Enrique Iglesias

Somehow I don’t think they’d like that. :D They really aren’t my type. I like Swedish brunettes and brunettes in general better. Swede #2 reminds me of Lauren Ambrose ([url]http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0024404/) from 6 Feet Under but not as pretty.

On Monday night, I got home to the most sureal experience. They were all on the couch around a laptop while Swede 1 read in a really serious voice the lighthouse and aircraft carrier joke ([url]http://www.snopes.com/military/lighthse.htm).
It’s so weird when people think they are sharing some fresh humour when it’s really ancient.

I haven’t told them I’ve found some friends to move out with and am out of here in 5 weeks. So far, I haven’t decided what reason to give them for moving if they ask.
How about
a) “you and your family have turned this place into a f@#king hostel!”
b) I just don’t belong here
c) this place doesn’t feel like a home
d) I want to live closer to the city
