Sit on my face

My female friends ever since school always told me I should talk less about sex, and that when I grew up and mature, I would stop making sexual jokes. So either I have not grown up, or they were wrong (or something in between). The pythons, illustrate my point, I guess, since they have been doing sexual and profanity-based jokes for quite a long time. This one from some time ago:



And quite recently, the same sexual joke:



QED, my behavior is perfectly normal, and I can be confident that I am a mature adult. Either way, the song is quite catchy, and it goes like this

Sit on my face and tell me that you love me
I'll sit on your face and tell you I love you too
I love to hear you oralize
When I'm between your thighs
You blow me away.

Sit on my face and let my lips embrace you
I'll sit on your face and then I'll love you truly
Life can be fine if we both sixty nine
If we sit on our faces
In all sorts of places
And play till we're blown away.

Clerks

After having spent the previous two weeks in what I call total stress mode, writing to meet the deadline for AAMAS, I needed to cope with the burnout caused by such an intense push. I guess it's hard not to experience this in my line of work, because no one can really choose the moment of scientific insights. In any case, my movie-based recovery technique involved watching Kevin Smith's movies throughout the weekend. Of course, the highlight goes to Clerks, especially the first one, which has some amazing debates over the fate of the contractors working on the second Death Star. Besides that debate, one thing missing from the movie is what happened during the funeral of one of the protagonist's high school friend, later shown in the cartoon below:

Soviet Cartoons

This weekend I have been introduced to old Soviet Cartoons, which sort of gave me an insight of how it is easier to find commonalities between children than it is among grownups. The reason for this is that the person who showed me the cartoons grew up in Soviet Kazakhstan, and the activities of children in front of a TV seemed to be quite similar regardless of the political background. Of course, I always had an idea of communist countries as trying to force some sort of automaton behavior upon their citizens. Regardless of what the ruling class tries to do, however, people are usually trying to have fun somehow. Anyway, I digress, check out this interesting child cartoon, Russian is not really required to understand this one:



Also, this outrageous cartoon (no talking) is quite something:



Finally, some surrealist stuff:



Hope the cultural discovery is enjoyable.

Thanks to my friend Bueno, who just added to my repertoire of disgusting thoughts.

Tabula Rasa



I am really starting to enjoy watching these reviews from this Yahtzee guy. I had all but dismissed the escapist magazine a while back because I felt that it had become quite boring and repetitive after it ceased being an online magazine to be more like a fake indie GameSpot wannabe. Now at least, I have a reason to visit that part (and only that part) of their website every Wednesday. By the way, it pays to check Yahtzee's website games section, particularly if you are nostalgic about adventure game and have not yet taken a look at the new Sam and Max games. Final addition, the name Gareth Gobulcoque is just awesome, I bet you will find dozens of them in MMORPG...
