This is over a year old.  But I was wondering if this girl ever got her money.  Do any of you remember this?

This model sued online jewelry retailer for $5 million. The reason for this is because she appears in an ad that makes her look like.. well…, frankly like she’s having an orgasm. But after seeing the ad, what the hell did she think was going to be the end result? Did she think it would be interpreted as an asthma attack? I’m not buying that. Sorry.

According to the model, the director told her to pretend ‘over-excitement’. Well, this excitement was clearly sexually charged. She knew what she was doing.

I hope she didn’t get a dime of that $5 million. But I do see a successful adult film career in her future.

The funny thing is, I originally saw this video while at the office. And the speakers were on a little louder than usual. So all the moaning kind of scared the crap out of me. I do know that if someone had heard it walking by, they wouldn’t have believed it to be a commercial for jewelry. Would you?

Sex sells. We all know that. It’s science.

Seriously.  I am witnessing this phenomenon.  I see it happening everywhere.  From my roommate, to co-workers, to my neighbors.  My heart goes out to them.

We all saw this one coming.  And seriously, when is Halloween better than during an election year?  And it doesn’t hurt that one of the party tickets has a fairly attractive VP candidate. :)

You know there will be a ton of “Sarah Palin”s out there at those Halloween parties this year.  But will any of them be daring enough to wear this version of the costume?  With my luck, I will run into a Sarah Palin wannabe that has no business being in a bikini of any kind whatsover.  I can’t stress that enough.  Please, No Ugly Sarah Palins!

On another Sarah Palin note, the New York Daily News put out this somewhat creepy slideshow of what other celebrities could play ‘Sarah Palin’.  A couple of them are pretty good. Most of them are pretty scary.

Seven years ago today was the infamous September 11th attacks.  Where 19 cowardly savages killed nearly three thousand Americans and people from other nationalities, all in the name of hate.  I take comfort in knowing right now they are burning in hell with the likes of Adolph Hitler and Jeffrey Dahmer, but it still makes me cringe to think about that day and all the chaos that ensued.  Life has never been the same.  Our country was changed forever.

To this day I still remember, as I’m sure all of you do, where I was that sad day.  But I more so remember what happened that night.  And this is something I have never shared with anyone, period.  I don’t remember exactly where I was driving to, but I remember going somewhere and listening intently to the news in my Jeep.  And of course all they were talking about was the carnage, the destruction, and who had a hand in it, etc.  And so the news station was taking calls from eyewitnesses, when a young girl called in.  If I had to guess, she was fourteen or fifteen.  And listening to the way she spoke about what she had seen and all the chaos that was going on, I started crying.  And let me be clear about something.  I never cry.  And when I say cry, I mean I was balling like a little girl.  I couldn’t stop.  I had the lump in my throat and everything.  And for those that don’t know me, I take pride in not wearing my emotions on my sleeve.  But that day was too much for me.  Easily one of the crappiest days of my life.

Anyway, I thought I would share that.  Maybe it will be therapeutic to do so.  How about you guys?  Where were you when all that went down?  And did it strike an emotional chord that you didn’t know existed like it did me?

It amazes me how united this country was seven short years ago and how divided we are today.  How in the hell did we get here??  Anyway, enough of all this sappy talk.  On to more pressing things.  I wonder what I’m going to eat for lunch today?  Hmmmm…  :)

But on one last serious note.  Let’s be nicer to each other.  I’ll try harder if you will…

This was a crazy weekend for me.  It started off with a project at work that should have started at 9pm and lasted 15 minutes.  Well, the 15 minutes part was accurate, but due to another scheduled upgrade, I didn’t get done until midnight.  That sucked.  But that was just the beginning.

On Saturday I went to assist with the arrival of evacuees from Hurrican Gustav to San Antonio.  I work every now and then with a company out of Ausitn that does RFID tracking.  To explain that, the people being evacuated are tagged with a wristband that contains a very small radio antenna.  This allows the government to track the departure and arrivals of the evacuees.  Think of it like tracking a UPS package, except that in this case UPS is the State of Texas, and the package is the evacuee.  Got it?  The info on the tag is useful since it contains important info like the person’s name and various medical info.  Here are a couple of pics of some the people arriving at the hangar of the Air Force base we staged the operation from.

I worked 29 hours straight monitoring our system and scanning tags of evacuees. My buddy Horbi helped us out.  I worked from 7am Saturday morning until 11am Sunday morning when Horbi came to relieve me after he returned from getting some sleep.  I was glad he was around.  Leave it to Horbi to keep things light.

Well, after he relieved me and I went home, that is when things really started sucking.  When I got home, I started vomiting.  And didn’t stop.  From noon to 9 pm, I vomited about 7 times.  I wish I were exaggerating.

So Labor Day I spent recovering.  And my friend Cynthia (the owner of the Austin company) spent the day hangin’ with President Bush at the Texas OEM office.  Nice.  I wonder if he asked her to say hi to me for him.  Anyway, I feel much better now.  But I have to say, I feel like I gave back to the community with the work we did this weekend.  Makes you feel good.  Anyway, with all the other hurricanes developing in the Atlantic, they told me to be ready for more.

So the 2008 Olympics got rolling this past weekend.  And although most of the Olympic games aren’t worth scheduling time around, I admit to being psyched up about women’s beach volleyball.  And anyone that knows me will tell you that watching Olympic women’s beach volleyball is a sure-fire way to get my Olympic juices flowing!  That, or I have acid reflux.  Not 100% sure.  And since here in the states they will surely be televising each USA women’s match, I truly hope their opponents are hot.  Because I really don’t think the American women, Misty May and Kerri Walsh, are all that attractive.  In fact, let me go as far as to say that Misty May is kind of fugly.  Maybe there is another USA women’s team?  Anyone know?  With cute girls, maybe?  A team worth getting behind?  Is it so hard to have a girls volleyball team that is competitive and hot?

Now here’s a volleyball player easy on the eyes.   This is Tian Jia from the host country of China.  The girl has nice form.  Very nice form. ;)

Here’s something that shocks me.  Cheerleaders?  At a women’s beach volleyball game at the 2004 Athens Olympics?  Makes me think of that ‘Beer Heaven‘ commercial.  I mean, can it get any better than that?  The athletes are already hot and dressed like cheerleaders, and then they bring our real cheerleaders?!  Hell yes!

I, of course, will be hoping for U.S.A. gold medals all around.  That is, except for one event.  One American team full of millionaire thugs, a wife beater, a greedy jerk, and one rapist (that we know of).  I’m talking about the USA men’s basketball team.  Maybe in this regard I am anti-American, but I simply can’t pull for a team the has the likes of Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony,  Jason Kidd, Carlos Boozer, etc.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m proud to see Dwight Howard, Dwyane Wade, and a couple of other decent guys represent the USA, but the Dream Team gimmick has run it’s course.  And I really don’t want to see a piece of crap like Kobe Bryant getting a gold medal.  So… we’ll see what happens.

So Here’s hoping for a near USA sweep!  And lots of beach volleyball.  I hear Brazil might be a team worth watching

Those that know me know I am very critical about movies in general.  Bad plots, poor writing, lousy directing, and horrid acting drive me up the %$#& wall!  So when I tell you to go and watch The Dark Knight, you will thank me later.  Unlike every imbecile that told me to go see Transformers, you can have faith in what I’m telling you.  Seriously, there is very little I would change about this movie. Let’s see, how can I describe this movie?  It is sexual arousing.  There.  I said it.

The casting was almost perfect.  Every actor that came back from Batman Begins (Bale, Caine, Freeman, Oldman) did great jobs.  Heath Ledger (R.I.P) was friggin’ fantastic as The Joker!  I mean, I had my doubts when I heard that one of the gay cowboys from Brokeback Mountain was going to play The Joker, but he couldn’t have done a better job.  The Joker was sadistic and creepy as hell.  And that is what he was always supposed to be.  Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent was brilliant as well.  Great makeup and special effects to bring his character along in the second half of the film.

‘The Dark Knight’ is one of the best movies I have seen in years.  Period.

-David Quesada, “The Quesada Chronicles”.

But just like any movie, something could have been done different to produce an even better product.  Maggie Gyllenhaal. Why is she in the film?  I know she played an important character, but… Maggie Gyllenhaal???  For those that don’t remember, the character of “Rachel Dawes” was played by a smoking hot, pre-crazy Katie Holmes in Batman Begins.  So they replace her hotness with… Maggie Gyllenhaal?  So they replaced this with this??  A girl that wouldn’t get a second look… anywhere?!?!?  The scenes where they tried to make Gyllenhaal attractive were a wast of time.  And believe me they tried.  I can think of several suitable replacements for Katie Holmes that would have been acceptable in place of Gyllenhaal.  I would have taken a full on insane Katie Holmes over Gyllenhaal!  Anyway, that was the only real thing wrong with the movie.  So I guess I shouldn’t complain too much.But honestly, Christian Bale and Aaron Eckhart vying for the affections of Maggie Gyllenhaal? Out of that entire movie, that was the thing I had the hardest time believing.

Scariest part of the whole thing, you may ask?  That’s easy.   Just before the previews, there was a promo for the chick-flick musical Mama-Mia sponsored by Ponds makeup remover, or something to that effect.  Well, ladies and gentlemen, the last thing I want to see is Meryl Streep with no makeup!  So, needless to say, I didn’t sleep very well last night.

-Dave Q.


Ok. I’m having a hard time digesting this one. I’m not saying it’s fake. But I can’t believe 100% what I’m seeing. And it’s not just because the elephant draws better than me.  Any thoughts?
