Mu On Mo #46 – The Wall… & Beyond… & Beyond… & Beyond…

November 12, 2012

With a certain chance of us all dying a horrible death some time during this apocalyptic year, it’s better to focus elsewhere.

& to soothe the soul, what’s better than a few tunes ?

Here’s some Music On Monday…

At some point it happens.

That moment where you hit a wall.

& you’re stopped dead in your tracks.

Hello, welcome to Mu On Mo.

I’ve been ill these past few days.

Think I ate something that didn’t agree with me.

Feeling kinda tired too.

So, this today… not exactly what I wanted to do.

However, it’s a good example of a wall.

As I type all this, I’m finding fun in all of it in a distracting sort of manner.

So, now all I need is something to reach me & help me breakthrough.

Something like the song that got the following comment on YouTube…

“if I could make you smile <3"

Oh, but you did !

That & sooo much more.

Thank you guys, thank you Freddie, Brian, John & Roger…

Cracking the wall, that was the always fantastic Queen – Breakthru.

See you another time for more Music On Monday ?

…that’s after I’m better, I hope.


The Girl With The Naggin’ Boo-Boo

February 27, 2012

2 posts in a single day ???

Yup, tiss shocking but not as shocking as the reason why I’m updating twice in 1 day.

It all started some hours ago, when host Billy Crystal introduced as next presenter, the following person…

Angelina's arms

They say the camera adds 10 pounds…

Yikes !

Could be worse though, imagine if that broadcast had been in 3D HD.

I just don’t understand why someone who’s in the spotlight, both that evening & in general, flaunts part of their figure while other parts are clearly a worrying sight.

Arms shouldn’t be like that unless you’re ill or something.

“Quod me nutrit me destruit”, a Latin quote tattooed on her body seems creepily appropriate now as it means “that which nourishes me, destroys me”.

Now, I’m sure that some people reading this are saying: “Picky picky !”

To you, I’d reply that there’s no need for such harsh words.

I mean we all know her arms look like toothpicks, no need to rub it in.

But seriously…

Maybe there’s a light at the end of this tunnel.

Seeing as she’s an “ambassador” for them, maybe the UN can feed her with that World Food Programme of theirs ?

Ahhh, the holidays !

A time for gathering.

& a time for remembrance.

Keeping alive all those we lost by having warm thoughts, is especially poignant during these cold winter months.

Take Avie Tevanian for example.

He lost a pal earlier this year & since then, he, along with many many others, has been remembering him.

The pal in question ?

Why, none other than…

Steve Jobs !

In a recent BBC docu, Avie remembered Steve as a person who…

“…could convince himself of things that weren’t necessarily true & that always worked with him for designing products, where he could go to people & ask them to do something that they thought was impossible.

& I think he truly thought that through some unconventional means he could cure himself.”

Steve Jobs has been called many things.

Genius & innovator for example.

But also a visionary who focused on the important things.

Which is ironic because as a so-called visionary, Steve Jobs was a pretty big control freak when it came to managing his own company & its products but he had a major blind spot regarding his own health.

Now, if he’d been some lonely unknown guy, nobody would’ve cared because nobody would’ve known.

But this… unwillingness to do that which was needed to maximize his chances to survive his battle with cancer not only disregarded Apple employees, stockholders & loyal consumers but also his friends & family.

Not following the advice of those closest to you during such circumstances & risking certain death… I just don’t get that.

By not doing that which was right for his own longterm health, he not only let all of them down, he let himself down.

An unfortunate truth colder than winter.

Buy 1, Pay For It Again & Again & Again &…

August 4, 2010

You (legally) download a song, you pay for it… do you then pay for it all over again ?

Of course not !

There’s no need because you’ve already paid for the Mp3 file.

You’re better after some medical care, you pay for it with your insurance… do you then pay for it all over again ?

Of course not !

There’s no need because you’ve already paid for getting healthy again.

You get married, you pay for the festivities… do you then pay for it all over again ?

Of course not !

There’s no need because you’ve already paid for having gotten married.

So, why do it for beef ?

Cloned beef that is.

Nobody pays twice for the EXACT same thing because that would be stupid, so is it really relevant if it’s (un)healthy to consume when you’re being ripped off ?

Harmful / Humorous / Hope

February 2, 2010

There are many kinds of people on this planet.

But for simplicity’s sake, let’s just look at 2 of those…

– There’s people who destroy their health on a daily basis

– & PR spokespersons who unknowingly explain things in a funny way

Indonesian Andi Susanto is an example of the #1 type.

Ever since being a little Andi (schoolboy age) he’s smoked cigarettes.

It had been always fine” he told The Jakarta Post.

Of course it had Andi, of course it had.

Anyhoo, as Andi (31 now) sped to his security guard job on his motorcycle, he lit up his 3rd tobacco roll.

Imagine his surprise when instead of finding the smooth heart stopping taste and rich lung destroying flavor, he was greeted by…

an explosion !

It knocked out several of his teeth, lead to 51 stitches & scars for life.

Now no one really knows why the cigarette decided to explode but the cigarette company behind Andi’s brand of choice made a statement…

We do not put any strange materials in the cigarettes, so we think that this is a weird case. This is the first time for us.

That’s right, not only are there NO strange materials whatsoever in cigarettes but should you happen to find any then the manufacturers didn’t put them there.

Thankfully, otherwise you might think they’re dangerous or something…

Scared of losing business Out of the goodness of their hearts, the tobacco company decided to fork over cash ($535) in an out-of-court settlement & also pay for the medical treatments.

As for Andi ?

He said he was going to try & quit.

Bit of a shame it took something extreme like an exploding cigarette but good for you Andi, good for you…

Jim Lee’s Image Problem

September 11, 2008

90’s comics superstar & Image co-founder Jim Lee is being plagued by eye troubles.

Or to be more exact, one eye is messing up normal vision for both his eyes.

Posted recently by the man himself:

I am having health issues with my left eye.

In fact, I am going in for surgery in about 4 hours to have excess scar tissue removed from my left retinal wall.

The complications are numerous and can include loss of vision, a greater likelihood of cataracts, a retinal detachment, infection etc but there is an 80% chance of you getting your vision back to essentially the way it was.

Is it worth the risk? Well, at this point, it’s getting harder to see objects especially at dusk in my peripheral vision and I have very patchy blurry distorted vision out of one eye and perfect out of the eye. The combination of the two leaves me disorientated at times and has proven to create some majorly spectacular headaches.

Yikes ! 😯

That’s bad news for anyone but for an artist…

Anyhoo, since then there have been NO updates whatsoever.

And curiously enough the post you just read was taken off his MySpace blog.

*POOF !* Like it never happened.

“But what does it all mean ?” I hear you ask.

Well, unless there’s some sort of (good) news your guess is as good as mine.

Hope you’re well Jim-bo !

Avoid Meat = Spontaneous Change Into Woman

July 4, 2008

Eating meat is dangerous for your health.

You may remember hearing that phrase from… well… just about any fanatical vegetarian.

So, what are you to do ? I mean what fun is life without a nice slab o’ cow on your plate, right ?

WRONG !!!” the angry vegan choir will shout in unison.

Yes, there’s good ol’ tofu. Soybean crud that amazingly looks like meat (& tastes like cardboard).

It’ll save the poor little cows, sheep, horses, etc. & it’ll save your health.

Awww, we all win. Woo-Hoo !

I don’t think so.

You see, scientist are our friends.

Why is that ?

Because they tell you the truth. Each & every time, no matter how horrid. In a way, they’re like really good friends who tell you about the spinach between your teeth.

Or in this case: eating tofu instead of meat.


But don’t take my word for it preachy meat-avoider, let us look @ what the scientists are saying after a study.

Scientists: “Soy products are rich in micronutrients called phytoestrogens, which mimic the impact of the female sex hormone oestrogen.

The latest study suggests phytoestrogens – in high quantity – may actually heighten the risk of dementia.

That’s right, if you eat enough tofu you WILL turn into a fine drooling specimen of womanhood.

Ok, so if you’re a woman it might be beneficial. Screw Hormone Replacement Therapy – Just Eat Tofu !

Well, what if you’re a male ?

Do you go with A; heartattack @ 40 or B; breasts ?

I guess you’re damned if you do & you’re damned if you don’t.

…don’t you just love it when Life itself gives you so many wonderful options to choose from ?

As always, the horrid link o’ truth.
