Twitter Stats

01.07.2008 @ 3:46 PM in Lifestream
Twitter (wiki) is one of those things that means nothing to some, something fun to a few, and the new way of life to the rest. Las February, I picked up twitter as a new wave, thought I get social with the new buzz. Little did I know that it would soon connect to be the perfect alt blog; an ability for me to send out shouts of information that I didn't really need to make a blog post out of.  Twitter has proved with it's API that it doesn't matter the amount of information you have, its how you can use that information. One great example has been the most recent Twitter Stats perl script whipped up by D.Cortesi, who wanted a way to find out what he's been up to with Twitter over the past year. Originally scripted in perl with use in Numbers on OSX, he posted the code and shortly thereafter, bugs were fixed, code reengineered and polished to work into ruby and googlechart and gnuplot. Here's my stats below, thanks to @twistednexus for chrunching the script for me... Buffawhat_twitter.png It turns out that I talk to my bear friends on twitter a lot (@steiger, @cantorum, @bearpupuk), as well as Beth (@kidkreativader) from Hero(@Herodesign), and my business partner Chris (@buffalogeek). I'm most active twittering from midday till after work; thursday is my biggest day to twitter.

Stupid Facebook.

01.06.2008 @ 3:06 AM in Lifestream
facebook.jpg I tried to be subtle about this, I didn't even twitter it, yet. Unfortunately, when you start the wonderful process of changing profile statuses to "single," and one of your social means is Facebook, subtlety gets hard. After about a half dozen im's and emails from folk that are facebookers, I'll make it public.
  • Michael  and I are no longer a couple.
I really don't want to hear how Michael was bad for me, or how I'm better off. Truth is, it doesn't really matter. Not being with Michael was something that I had to do for a new year for myself.  This has been that hardest decision for me to make, because instead of something catastrophic to trigger this, I had to realize on my own that we weren't meant to be past a year. I'm just gonna take some time to myself, hang out with friends and focus on me. I'm not going to be dating anyone else from Buffalo for a while, the supply of decent single have long been exhausted and I don't feel like trying to disprove that claim either.

Salari Ika: New Kozik Kaiju with 50% less tentacle

01.03.2008 @ 9:34 AM in Lifestream
Kozik is back working with Wonderwall (maybe) to produce another Kaiju (think Godzilla/power ranger type Japanese monsters, but less gay), and he's packing papers. Salari Ika Protomold Salari Ika is much like Kozik's previous Kaiju, Ika Gila, but he's ditched the body in favor of a suit with a briefcase prop.  This is going to be one slick toy, and Kozik says he is going to make the colorways "Corporate" like "Exxon, IBM, Halliwood-Burton, Krupp, GMBH, GE, etc." No clue yet on when this toy will slither from protomold to distributor, and it may not even be a WonderWall release. Either way, expect at least one to appear on my desk as soon as it drops.

Letra of the Year – 2008

01.02.2008 @ 11:16 PM in Lifestream
Beads of yemaya The new year marks the time when those in Santeria receive a reading for the new year, called a Letra. The Letra explains which saints are in ruling for the year, what things to look forward to, and most importantly, things to look out for. The most popular Letra comes from Cuba and is for everyone, and is taken up by a babalawo (Bah-Bah-Lao), who holds the highest rank of spiritual status in the religion. Some individual Santos houses also take up the Letra for themselves and their members, and Angel has been kind enough to share the Letra from his house, based in NYC. Before you read this, remember that a lot of this may be hard to understand if you are not in the religion, like me. However, there are a lot of good points and things to consider, and if nothing else, a great glimpse into a powerful religion full of mystery, ritual, and wonder.
  • This year marks the individual need to seek personal guidance and healing through ODU. Orunmila favored the need for each and every person to concern themselves with their own well being and to not generalize any longer. That each person, including all priests and aleyos (non-initiates) must have personal readings performed in order to get a clear understanding of the person's spiritual progress (or lack thereof) and to perform all Ebo as prescribed, and not to concern one's self with generalized readings that do not fully serve the individual or the family. Orunmila clearly states that each and every person must take personal responsibility for their own (and family) spiritual welfare and to take a new direction spiritually. This new direction is one that demands respect for the Hierarchical structure and one that demands that each and every person needs to concentrate first on the fundamental principles that Olodumare (God) has layed out for each and every one of us: This is called ODU.

Letra of the Year

  • Reiging Signs Ofun – Oggunda (10-3)
  • Reiging Saints: Oshun and Ogun
  • The saying goes: He who wants to know most, will tell all.
  • Orishas who give advice in this Letra are: Eleggua, Obatala, Ozain, Odduduwa, Oggun, Yewa, Oshun, Nana Buruku, Babalu Aye’ & Eggun.
  • There are times that you will feel paralyzed & you’ve felt like you have lost your position, money & health.

Positive Aspects:

This is a major Sign. But losing it’s position it went to be “tails”. It was transformed into the minor sign of the Oddu. If you have a great position, you must be clear in everything you do. So this Letra (Sign) can be stable. You must create your own Kingdom & rule it. If you abandon it, you will lose your position in life.
  • You should not drink alcoholic beverages.
  • You should receive Orunmila.
  • Don’t lend or give your things away.
  • Be cautious with your personal things.

General:

In this Sign the female is sterile & she is a daughter of Obatala. She should do an Ebbo’ (cleansing) to have children. You should NOT argue over business because you will suffer & possible incarceration. The male should do an Ebbo’ (cleaning) so he can find an important position amongst other men. You will go through 3 big tests in your life, this year. At the end you will be compensated greatly but you need to do Ebbo’. So it won’t come in reverse. When you eat your food, you mush chew it thoroughly. Your libido will be very low. There will be passing of ones elders. A war will come to light. You will see everything in your dreams. Help as many women as you can. Careful with ponds & lakes. You must charge for every job or task that you do. If someone asks to send for you, don’t go until you do an Ebbo’.

Recommendations:

  • Don’t argue with your elders. (Respect & more respect)
  • Keep the warmth in your house. (Stay home more often)
  • Keep your business to yourself. People don’t wish you well.
  • Treat your children better. So they don’t leave your house.
  • Spiritually cleanse your home with herbs to rid yourself of negativity.
  • Get a general examination.
  • Everything that you start, you must finish.
  • Careful with your temper.
  • Don’t hold anything in your home for anyone. You may be accused of something later on down the road.
  • Don’t fall in love with someone who doesn’t pertain to you.
  • Don’t eat out as often. Someone can put brujeria (powders) in your food.
  • Never suggest anyone to have an abortion.
  • Don’t be a slave to anyone.
  • Eat healthy. So you won’t have heart troubles later on.
  • Always make sure you know who you are making dealings with.

Sicknesses related to this Oddu’:

  • Impotence
  • Loss of memory
  • Insanity
  • Problems with the intestines & stomach
  • Paralysis
  • Prostate
  • Infertility
  • Loss of a limb due to a violent accident
  • Castration
  • Giving birth by cesarean
  • Venereal diseases
  • Erectile disfuction
  • If you have an Eleggua. Place a crown on him along with red, black & white beads.

More Heatherette Crack

01.02.2008 @ 10:13 PM in Lifestream
heatherette2_web.jpg I finished off the case of Heatherettes at Hero Design today; Mark wanted an Amanda Lepore, and I wanted Mack Dugan and the rest of the set. So, I bought the 8 that were left, and gave mark the tranny Lepore I found. The rest were Richie Riches, but I did get the other Trevor Rains (left in the photo), one of the Mack Dugans (right), and the chase (center) which I believe to be Paris Hilton. I've kinda exhausted Hero of all the new stuff; the next few months are bringing an 8-inch Dunny with the Fat-Cap, more Munny Pulls, and of course, the French 3-inch Dunny's. For now, I topped off with a few more Kozik mongers... monger_herman_web.jpg Herman, from Mongers..... mongers_web.jpg and Dmitri the Magnificent and Popov from Mongers Menthol.
  • P.S. as soon as I was getting ready to leave, Mark pulled out the last case of the Heatherettes. I may get the whole series then.

Happy New Year!

I'm not dead, I'm ketchin up. err.. no wait.. I'm off on christmas vacation.. yea.. still.. till the 1st.

i Haz An Addiction, Let Me showz You It.

12.26.2007 @ 12:45 PM in Lifestream
fullview.jpg I finally ran out of room on my desk to display the vinyl. One could say that that would be a great time to stop buying, but no. That just means you have to bring them out to the main office, knock off the corporate leaflets, and spread em all out on our faux mantle. WNYMedia has never looked so trendy. It all started Friday when Kirk from work was grinding into me (not that kinda grinding... I wish) about how he found out that I already owned the secret santa gift that he had bought for me. he tosses the bag at me and inside is a Christmas Labbit. I explain to him I can never have enough Labbits, and later that day I spend 30 minutes talking with my department trying to defend why I collect vinyl to begin with... I guess a actual crack addiction would make more sense to them. Anyhoo, I'm twittering all this madness to Beth at Hero, and she tells me they have something for me at the store.... I show up and she hands me a box all wrapped in brown paper and ribbon. I doubletake when I notice the name on the card says "Nae Nae." Wait a minute, no one knows that name 'cept my mother. Whaddaya know, said "Mom" on the card too. First off, my mom is a lunatic, completely out of her mind at times, and I love her for it. The free and open disclosure of my baby name to anyone I could do without, but it's too late for that. As I Open the box, Mark explains how she called Hero and explained how she was "Buffawhat's mom," and that she wanted the Cactus Pups set for her son and if they could arrange it. They agreed and inside was the whole set from Tokidoki and StrangeCo, albeit blind boxed. Fortuned smiled and I opened a complete set;  they are so cute, and so tiny. tokidoki1.jpg tokidoki3.jpg tokidoki2.jpg tokidoki4.jpg Well, those 7 filled up my punch card, so I scored a free blind box, and picked up another Pets and Owners Monsterisms.  These guys are heavy and a bit awkward, but they really are fun to look at. monsterism1.jpg Just as I figured I could get out of hero without dropping a dime, Mark plays his trump card. He walks over to the Heatherette toys, and starts talking about how they ordered them on a request and wasn't sure if they'd sell. He points to the cowboy with the gold hat and unicorn stick horse.
  • "Hey look, its like a little Buffawhat action figure, these are right up your alley!"
I try to give him my most indignant look and flailed to defend whatever shreds of heterosexuality I pretend to possess, and I couldn't. The Heatherette's are little club kid figures, modeled after designers Traver Rains, Richie Rich, the fabulous trannystar Amanda Lepore, and others.  I started opening boxes till I filled my next card, and grabbed another Monsterism. The extras I sent to Angel, who kee'd over Lepore. heatherette2.jpg heatherette1.jpg

What the Hell happened?

12.21.2007 @ 9:15 AM in Lifestream
 fuck.jpg I fell off the map for a few days. It happens, I had it coming. I say "fell" because it wasn't intentional. First, the weekend blundered, Monday and Tuesday were consumed with social events that did no good but waste time and lower my immune system. Wednesday and Thursday were spent in bed with a fever, body fatigue and chills. But today is Friday. A good day, cause its the start of Christmas vacation! At work, nothing really gets done, i get lots of gaudy gifts and a popcorn tin, hopefully I won't be forced into wearing the elf suit again:

I hate getting sick, more so now because I've turned into a workaholic. I've managed to ignore every bit of christmas cheer up till now, and gifting has been nothing more than a nonchalant with-recipient after-purchase hand-off. Doesn't mean I don't care, I just don't care for the pomp this year. I don't have time. It's totally my fault and I'm sick because I forgot to relax this holiday season, and I should make the time. I'm not even going down to see my folks, we are postponing everything till February.
