Mu On Mo #51 – Highway To Hell

December 17, 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…

Snow, presents, decorations.

All ways to tell the most wonderful time of the year is near.

Except here.

Hello & welcome to this penultimate Mu On Mo.

My mom &… her husband have another tradition.

Every year around this time they have an awful fight.

It can even involve the local law inforcement but that’s only on very special occasions.

Very recently, I had the good fortune to witness a lil’ bit of their yearly drama.

Afterwards, when… her husband had left, she said the folowing sentence…

“God, if you really exists, perform a miracle & see to it this bastard never returns !”

This & their recurring love & understanding are quite funny, especially around this this time of the year, as they both see themselves as Christians.

Which reminds me of a song that got the following comment on YouTube…

“OMG i just adore potatoes”

I know, right ? 😀

Roasted, mashed, boile …wait what ?

Anyhoo, enjoy this apt song…

For all dysfunctional yet devout birds of a feather, that was Pet Shop Boys – It’s A Sin.

See you 1 more time for a lil’ more Music On Monday ?

…that’s if we’re still around after December 21st O_O


There’s Some Really Sick People In This Town #12

August 15, 2012

Welcome to another instalment of this irregular series of posts about that other side of humanity.

The other day, a pal o’ mine asked a question.

“Why aren’t any (more) posts on the topic of “women” ?”

Well, this here brand new update is all for youse, laddie…


AKA “that perfect day”, can be a stressful thing to go through.

With heaps & heaps of details to consider, plan & carry out, it’s no wonder things get a little hectic if not chaotic.

It’s the kind of pressure that Na Cola Darcel Franklin (a soon-to-be-bride from Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania) must’ve been dealing with.

After all, when you marry it’s supposed to be forever, right ?

& like so many of us for our weddings, she probably wanted to get things just right.

Unfortunately for her, whatever plans, hopes & dreams she had for this big day were all for naught as the whole thing was called off.

Very last moment too as it was on the day of the wedding, just some hours before the ceremony was supposed to take place.

The reason for this was Na Cola Darcel Franklin’s bridegroom & soon-to-be-husband, Billy Rafael Brewster.

Because after he said he wanted to go out to get some food for their guests…

…an argument arose & she stabbed him in the chest with a kitchen knife after which he bled to death 😯


It’s difficult enough when your soulmate’s alive, let alone when he’s dead.

& just in case you think I made it all up, here’s the odd link o’ truth.

I Love You... Until Death

Come Rain Or Shine

June 5, 2012

Tomorrow’s gonna be a special day for 2 people.

Because for better or worse, there’s gonna be a wedding.

& hopefully, there’ll be some good weather but juuust in case…

…I’m gonna try that whole talking-to-a-higher-power-routine.


Uh, are you there ? Do you hear me ? Give us a sign of your powers…

Thor Girl !

Oh, scantily clad cosplayin’ Thor girl, don’t fail us now & keep things dry tomorrow !

Obvious… Yet Can’t Put Your Finger On It

December 16, 2011

From a BBC report:

Human rights groups in Bangladesh have demanded a severe punishment for the husband of a young wife who allegedly cut off most of her right hand.

Police say Rafiqul Islam, 30, attacked her because she pursued higher education without his permission.

Doctors say the fingers cannot be re-attached and it appears that Ms Akther will have to live with permanent disfigurement.

Wow, that’s truly awf… wait, what was that name again ?

Rafiqul… Islam ???


Yeah, sooo…


…nah, it’s just too easy.

Oh, what the Hell !

I mean, it is nearly X-Mas, right ?

Ok, lemme see here…

– When it comes to the household, Mr Islam has all the fingers in the pie.

– Bangladeshi proverb for women: Seeking education is like giving the finger to your husband… literally.

– The finger points towards you Mr Islam… all 5 of them !

– I guess he wanted her to wrap her fingers around him… in bandages.

– There goes 1 man who prefers to “work” his wife’s fingers right to the bone.

– Education can have severed consequences for women.

& because the obvious is funny too…

– Well whaddaya know, all those rightwinged fearmongers were right about “Islam” being evil after all !

But in light of this tragedy, let’s be serious for a moment here.

Mr Islam, I dunno if you’re currently reading this great post but your point of view is totally understandable.

What was this woman thinking to do such a thing ?

& since you love fingers so much I figured I’d give you a nice gift for this holiday season…

Giving Da Finger To Mr Islam

The True Fan Endures

October 31, 2011

It’s funny how things change over the course of an entire year.

But… what if they stayed the same ?

Day after day, week after week, month after month, the exact same thing.

I got a call a few days ago.

What I heard can best be described as… chaotic I guess.

It was call from my mother.

When I got to her, she was crying hysterically.

Perhaps you’ve seen hysterical behaviour before like on TV or in movies.

In real life it looks & sounds very similar but what you yourself feel is… quite different.

& with no real details to go on, experiencing her in this state was disturbing to say the least.

Upon noticing me, she managed a sentence through her seemingly uncontrollable emotions.


That seemed to calm her… somewhat.

From the loud & urgent manner in which she expressed herself & her way of crying, I figured she wanted me to dial 9-1-1, which I did.

However, as I had no idea what went on before my arrival & as she seemed “better”, I handed her the phone after dialing.

She looked up.

Took the horn from me.

& then hung up the phone.


That was pretty unexpected.

& no, I’m not making this up or anything like that, she took the phone only to hang it up.

Anyway, there were no explanations of any kind whatsoever.

& soon after, she withdrew to another room.

Leaving a rather puzzled me behind.

Not about what had happened, as my parents fighting is hardly news to me or their neighbours by now.

No, what puzzled me was the reality of it all.

Because with other & better options available, who chooses to go on living in such a continuous loop of variations on the same theme that only brings anger, pain & stress, decade after decade after decade ?

Well, after some thinking I think I finally have the answer as to who…

A true horror fan.

Happy Halloween !

“The Denial”

October 31, 2010

The Denial.

That might read like a proper title for some creepy Halloween story but unfortunately it’s about something real & quite evil but still scary.

& it all started just a few hours ago…

A certain man, who likes to consider himself a Christian, came home after apparently having attended a service.

It was there that his wife (legally but not emotionally or physically speaking) had been watching some type of TV series.

She too sees herself as a Christian.

Then for some reason or another, they got into an arguement.

Who started it isn’t really relevant here.

What it was about isn’t really relevant either.

What is relevant is that they weren’t meant for eachother.

They never were.

How they’ve managed so many decades together without divorcing is anybody’s guess.

In any case, back to their arguement.

It got bolder, it got crazier.

It became… a fight.

A loud fight.

Loud enough that it was hearable through ceilings & floors & walls.

& so others heard their fight.

Before long, a telephone call was placed to certain someones which lead to the ringing of the doorbell.

By now the fight had ended, not with apoligies or sad guilt but with the man going up to his bedroom (just legally married remember ?) so the woman answered the door.

It was, surprise surprise, the police.

Armed with questions, a pair of tall policemen entered the house.

& separately the woman & the man were asked these questions.

Yet they both gave the exact same answer.

Nothing was wrong for nothing had happened.

The 2 policemen knew this wasn’t true for they had clear evidence that backed up what had happened.

But both the man & the woman stood by their answer.

So, the policemen told them they had to tell them the truth.

In a vague response the husband told them he & his wife were a Christian family.

To which the policemen replied that Christians do not lie.

It was then that the husband tried to deflect from the real matter at hand by telling them he had always been a good & hard working man & that certain evil people were trying to paint him in a bad light.

The policemen would hear nothing of it & told them they were going to write a rapport but that they couldn’t help them because the truth was being withheld.

Frustrated at what they’d just heard, the policemen left a few moments later & so nothing changed for the man or the woman.

By now you’re possibly wondering questions like…

“What kind of sick people do this ?”

&… “Who are these hypocrites ?

They are, biologically speaking, my parents.

& I have been around their behaviour since forever.

Happy Halloween…

Unsolved Mystery… SOLVED !

August 17, 2009

Hi there.

Do you like unexplained phenomena ?

Yeah, I’ll bet you do.

@ 1 point or another, everyone will ponder about such things as the Loch Ness monster, UFOs & Mothman.

So for this entry, I’d like to write about a similar kind of mystery.

It’s 1 of those enigmas that you can’t stop wondering about.

Let me put it to you in the form of a question…

Have you ever wondered what’s under a burqa ?

Yeah, I’ll bet you have.

Go ahead & think about it right now…

Women wearing burqas

…well ?

No idea ?

You give up ?

Ok, I’ll tell you what’s underneath a burqa.

Why, another burqa of course !


But seriously, the mystery of whatever’s beneath this… clothing item might be solved thanks to a new law in Afghanistan of all places.

You see, earlier this year a law proposal came about that would give married men certain… rights.

Meant to govern family life, the law stated women (unless ill) were forced to **** their husbands every 4 days.

This then led to all sorts of protests in & outside of Afghanistan.

As for the reasons why your typical 9-year old Afghan female wouldn’t want to regularly **** her adoring husband, I can only speculate.

Ok, so maybe it turned all married women into potential rape victims but then again, no one ever said marriage was a slice of heaven.

Anyhoo, all that protesting eventually paid off & the law went back to the ol’ drawingboard for some reviewing.

& now it’s back. (YAY !)

New & improved, the law now states husbands may withhold food if their wives refuse to indulge their manly urges.


So, by fulfilling his needs she’ll get paid for services rendered… with food.

A basic daily need in return for doing whatever it is he likes to do.

Now, let’s think about this for second, shall we ?

WTF ? This law actually turns a wife into your very own personal whore.

With laws like these, who needs the Taliban ?

But no need to worry, the law is only to help President Hamid Karzai win votes intended for the Shia minority, who make up about 10% of Afghanistan’s population.

As for all those women in the 90% of the population group, they can take it easy.

For now.

As a separate family law for them (the Sunni majority) is now also being drawn up.

Anyways, back to the matter @ hand.

What is under a burqa ?” you ask ?

Very thin women. 😦

Got Food ?

There’s Some Really Sick People In This Town #5

February 18, 2009

Welcome to another instalment of this irregular series of posts about that other side of humanity.

Once upon a time…

There was a nice man who lived in America called Muzzammil Hassan.

(Yes, he is muslim but that’s not really relevant)

He was so nice that when his wife, Aasiya Hassan, asked for a divorce because of physical abuse he murdered her by beheading her.

(Yes, she was muslim as well but again not really relevant)

So, not a very nice man after all, right ?

Welllll, he used to be.

Back in 2004 he was part of the effort to launch “Bridges TV”, the 1st English spoken muslim TV channel for North America.

See ? That was quite nice.

Bridges TV came about because following the events of September 2001 there was an increasing focus on fanatical/stereotypical Islam in US media.

The idea was to counter this with a more accurate portrayal.

Here’s a quote by the CEO of the channel:

Bridges TV gives American muslims a voice & will depict them in everyday, real life situations.”

Makes one wonder why Muzzammil Hassan couldn’t have been more like that nice CEO ?

they’re one & the same 😯

(Now that part really IS relevant but unfortunately many won’t see it that way)

& just in case you think I made it all up, here’s the despicable link o’ truth.
