This is one of the most annoying videos I have ever seen:

If this is what Toledo is like, remind me never to go there.  Of course there are conflicting stories of what actually happened before this all went down.

According to Toledo News Now, the cop pulled over the daughter-in-law for a license plate violation.  The man in the video arrived home with his family in that truck and didn’t like how the officer was talking to the daughter-in-law.  This is contrary to the description in the youtube video which states “cop pulled somebody over and blocked neighbors driveway, neighbor comes home and asks cop to move vehicle..this is what happens.” so who knows.  The YouTube video was obviously just uploaded by one of those yokels on the sidelines though so I’d be more inclined to believe the news in this case if I had to pick.

Having constraint to not tase everyone in sight who is irritating you has got to be the hardest part about being a cop haha.

Thoughts? From what you can see in the video, was the cop too aggressive?

Oh and of course this is to “help” the victims of the Newtown, CT massacre:

The artwork’s finished form is in the hands of the people who this is empowering. Will it be fully erased? How long will it take? The entire process, of both the drawing and the erasing will be filmed in time-lapsed still frames. A video will be created, and if time is remaining in ArtPrize it will be shown next to the piece. The video will be available for viewing on youtube. Look up erase.

Like all useless ideas… a mandatory Kickstarter fundraiser was initiated to raise money.   You can read more about this ArtPrize 2013 entry, titled ERASE at the link if you care.  Interactive installations… so hot right now… interactive installations.  2000 erasers to no doubt symbolize the 2000 deaths from high capacity assault clips which happen every second in the United States.

I like the idea of a 20×8 foot AR-15, but the whole “lets be edgy and get people to erase it” thing is yawn-worthy.  Plus he’s projecting the AR-15 then just penciling in what he sees… a 4 year old could do that.

If I was anywhere near Grand Rapids, MI I’d show up there with one of those giant erases ‘for really big mistakes’ and be like “FUCK YOUR ART PROJECT SON” and hit it with the quickness.

I think the hardest part about being a unknown artist would be convincing yourself that what you’re doing is actually worth getting up in the morning for, and that people actually care.

There are two other gun related entries at ArtPrize 2013… a low effort victims of gun violence shrine, and a cool looking fiberglass 1911.

Two guys I’ve never heard of debate something that isn’t even debatable in my opinion:

More like a new “Final Solution” as my astute colleague Dugan Ashley said in a different video.

4:00 – LOL @ the Navy Yard Shooter talk.  About how he wouldn’t have been able to get insurance.   Oh lawwwwwd, I love how with this new “license and insurance” idea, murderers are going to be like “Oh no, I can’t buy a gun from a gun store… I guess no innocent people will die”.  If only…

Licensing and insurance = Confiscation list.

Like the top YouTube commenter said, “Driving a car is a prevailed not a right.  Owning a firearm is a right.  This “argument” is invalid.” <— *sound of nail being hit on its head*

MrColionNoir calls out Starbucks president Howard ‘Fucc Boi’ Schultz:

0:12 – The pro/anti gay argument to me is the exact same as what’s going on here with guns.

0:50 – yea no doubt… it’s a pain to have to pack up all my stuff when I get my 4th or 5th venti iced coffee refill of the day and need to take a leak.  That’s how the world works though I suppose.

MrColionNoir-Defend-Freedom-Tshirt-ENDOI enjoy MrColionNoir’s references because they remind me of my own, but I still have to always wonder if they are going over the heads of 99.9% of his audience like I think they are.  Oh well, mine probably do too, but we’re both doing alright.

I had no idea he was going to be on that show, nor do I care… the Collation To Stop Handgun Violence doesn’t like it though apparently:

hahah good for him with the whole “go sign the petition” thing.  I really like his could-give-a-shit-less attitude now, although his ego seems to have swelled past his actual status in the industry sometimes from what I can see.  Talking about how you want to “create controversy” is boring too… keep that to yourself.  The best thing about his “I’m going to start killing people” rant, and other rants were that they were completely organic.

James-Yeager-Angel-Approved1:19 – I don’t know how interesting a Buck Yeager TV show would be.  Seems like his shenanigans are better suited for YouTube, but what do I know.

3:00 – “Hundreds of thousands of people” – *eye roll* haha yea if the White House can’t even get hundreds of thousands of signatures on popular gun related petitions I doubt he’s going to hit that.

Back on his “shooting expensive stuff to piss you off” bit we all love so much:

I know there are levels to this shit, but I can’t wait until Richard Ryan is pulling in numbers like the former FPS Russia and he starts shooting lavish things like luxury vehicles and expensive timepieces.

Richard-Ryan-RatedRR-M2-BrowningRichard took the above video on Google Glass… I wish there was a video of him taking the video on google glass because I bet it looked hilarious.  Hopefully he will have that in the final video, or the behind the scenes that comes out on Sunday.  Like I mentioned in the title, this was just a preview video to wet our whistle.  Consider my whistle somewhere between damp and moist… I could have used more. LOL
