Tony: Nowadays, everybody’s got to go to shrinks and counselors, and go on Sally Jesse Raphael and talk about their problems. Whatever happened to Gary Cooper? The strong, silent type. That was an American. He wasn’t in touch with his feelings. He just did what he had to do. See, what they didn’t know is once they got Gary Cooper in touch with his feelings, that they wouldn’t be able to shut him up. And then it’s dysfunction this and dysfunction that and dysfunction VA Fungool!

Melfi: You have strong feelings about this.

Tony: Let me tell you something. I have a semester and a half of college so I understand Freud. I understand therapy as a concept, but in my world it does not go down. Could I be happier? Yeah, yeah. Who couldn’t?

Melfi: Do you feel depressed?

Tony: Since the ducks left. I guess.

What is it when you realize that someone isn’t right for you? Or when you find that you do not and can not posses someone entirely? You want someone so bad and it feels like hell.

It’s not like the first time, once loved love evolves, and you no longer have as much control, and it frustrates you. I think because of this feeling we find ourselves constantly wanting to reset, like new years resolutions, like dreaming up moments from the past where the ending flips on its head, like true forgiveness…We just want to say “wait wait wait, this went too far in the wrong direction, can we try that again.”

Recently did a cover for Conan the Avenger #4! It was neat to get a chance to draw the young “Cloonan Conan.” 

Also I think it looks tougher to fight with a tiny knife than a big sword.

The anti-Apple tax people

Posted on Thursday, April 17th, 2014 at 7:29 am. PT

I agree with what Rob says, until he gets to this part:

Yes, Apple shelters taxes. Yes, it’s very good at it. Yes, it sucks that they aren’t paying their fair share.

The fact is, Apple does pay its fair share. In fact, they paid billions of dollars in taxes in the US last year, more than anyone else. The fact that governments offer companies a tax break to have factories or offices in their jurisdiction is not the companies fault—they create jobs, which has great economic benefits for those regions. If you then tell a company that those tax breaks are gone, they will pick up and move somewhere else—it’s business.

This isn’t about Apple, every company works exactly the same way. This is about the way the world works.

you have to be clinically insane like jim Dalrymple here to actually defend a corp of paying their fair share of taxes when EVERYBODY in the fucking room knows that the fucking don’t. this isn’t about the world this is about apple being a nasty downright gross corp jumping through loopholes headfirst, and NOT paying their fair share. because others are murdering it totally clears the way for apple to murder too according to the brainwashed apple zealots out there like this complete jackass. they paid billions? read this motherfucker http://dealbook.nytimes.com/2013/06/04/calculating-apples-true-u-s-tax-rate/ apple is going to pay 7 billion for 2013 on 75 billion dollars. fuckin morons think thats fair?

Two Decades After Oslo, A Look at Life in Israel and Palestine

Tel Aviv is actually Tel Aviv-Jaffa. In 1950, Tel Aviv unilaterally annexed Jaffa after nearly 65,000 Arabs fled the city during the armed conflict of 1948. The 4,000 Palestinians who stayed were “relocated” to Jaffa’s Ajami and Jabaliah neighborhoods. Israel then confiscated all the “abandoned” properties and made them “properties of the state.” Those in Ajami were granted “citizenship” but lived under military rule until 1966.

Today, Tel Aviv is a city of more than 400,000, with a population that is 92 percent Jewish-Israeli. Virtually all Palestinian residents live in Jaffa, thanks to the prohibitively high prices elsewhere in the city. Until a decade ago, friends tell me, hundreds of thousands of West Bank residents went to the beach in Tel Aviv, went to school there and worked there. Now, it is a city where they are never seen. In fact, it is possible to live in Tel Aviv and never interact with a Palestinian, except while doing military service.

they said never again by doing worse to the Palestinian people.

I look at the iPhone and then at other phones and think to myself that apple and their industrial design team (ive) are putting pieces of art in our hands. I hate to get philosophical about tech but the iPhone is beautiful.
