Women are not funny..

After some surfing around, I find very little satire jokes or particularly funny writing pieces on the internet popular enough to be picked up by google or digg written by women.. On the contrary, a bunch of those are inspired by women but created by men, usually on the influence to mock women or criticize the bitchy or ditsy side of them.. This only leads to my belief that women are more uptight and usually can’t make fun of themselves in a public manner, especially about topics regarding issues of which they may be against.. you know.. such as animal rights, abortion, children, vegetarian, politics, famous people, etc, etc, and they can layer on top of each other as well (like how I said animal rights and then I mentioned vegetarian again)..

I honestly don’t think when people like maddox write about those “sensitive topics” mixed up with some vulgar descriptions actually stand absolutely behind their statements. Why is it harder for women to see through the blunt titles, lighten up a little and laugh a little? Maybe it’s because we feel like we’re being contained in a role where we have to be more constrained towards topics like that? I have no idea really..

I also find that in Internet writings, people tend to over generalize pretty much everything they say as if that’ll make your writing more appealing and more important to its readers. But usually the truth is, whatever you were trying to pull is only relevant to a few people and only true in certain situations, maybe even just you. But this is a side note and I’m kind of off topic already.

There are a few female comedians out there, oh no, I don’t mean the ones with scripts or talk shows on TV, but the ones who perform in stand up comedy shows. This excludes Ellen DeGeneres (she’s the first one that popped up on google when I search for female comedians). Another reason why I should exclude her is that she’s playing by the genderless rule. I’m not a big fan of stand up comedy shows, so I can’t comment much on this, but I did find something worth to read. The last comment on that article is also notable. I’ll take his word for it, so the female comedians are as crude as the males and the ratio isn’t that bad, then why is it that the audience are largely occupied by men?

I’m going to come back to what I mentioned in the first paragraph now.. I have a feeling that I really shouldn’t start talking about the female comedians because I really don’t know much about them. I started thinking about it this morning reading through maddox’s website. I didn’t get offended by his writings, but mostly because I didn’t care. I can tell why a lot of people would be ticked off though and it’s funny seeing him giving people the evil replies on his website through hate mail titled entries.

I used to care about everything.. wanted to argue with anyone who doesn’t buy what I believe in.. I don’t remember when I started to change that attitude. Jenny asked me how I felt when I read the article “Apple is a piece of ___”, I honestly felt nothing. I don’t even think I’m that much of a Apple lover anymore, was I ever one? I still remember arguing with Jenny about how I think Apple out rule Microsoft, but I don’t remember why I was so passionate about it. Why do I even care what computer I use anyway. I think nowadays I say a lot of things I don’t mean, when I say I love something, I probably don’t even have much feelings towards it.. same thing goes for when I say I hate something. Another thing that annoys me that I do is that I give out random excuses. I say no to things and come up with a trivial reason that I can’t believe others would buy into. What happened to being sincere about everything you say to others.. >_>

I think I’m done.. I actually don’t care about the topic.. Who cares whether some women can’t lighten up to some guys’ jokes or not..

已经这么老大了……

我20了,明年7月就21了。

沉默……继续沉默……

我突然意识到无论怎么糊弄自己,仍然已经不能算是小孩了。我可以说我长相偏小,看不出来什么的。但事实摆在眼前,我算是大人了。在父母那年代,长子16就要当家,身上的包袱,自身的责任感跟我们现在是比都比不了的。像我现在这样儿的,生活在那个年代可会被批评为败家子儿,那都是没二话可言的。

上个周末星期六,我终于逮着个机会跟多伦多的朋友聚会。说是Lin的生日,所以大家一起吃了顿饭。那天其实我安排了挺多事儿的,准备一天之内都干完。早上9点起床后把狗托给王叔叔带一天,我跟他说如果妈妈晚上回家就去把狗接回家,如果不回来的话就麻烦他照顾一晚上。前一天晚上我不记得是怎么跟妈妈说的了,不过我早上跟王叔叔交代的时候确实是觉得我妈可能不会星期六晚上回家,这狗实打实是要麻烦人家的了。

我跟Jeremy紧接着约着去High Park摄影,我们11点到了后先去cafe吃了brunch。由于天气冷,那次的摄影实在不值一提,没什么景儿不说还差点儿把自己冻坏了。3点半我跟Sida跟她爸爸约在了Steels and Yonge。Sida是我以前在温哥华的朋友,从我9年级自己到了多伦多后就一直没见着了。而她的爸爸目前的身份是我前任后妈的丈夫,听起来是不是很复杂?我的家庭历史丰富得很呢。听他们谈起跟我同父异母的弟弟时,我感觉他们所认识到的坛博跟我印象中的他长大了不少。自从他2岁后我就一直没有跟他有什么深刻的接触。我这个姐姐做得有名无实呀。

等7点了,我才跟多伦多的这群朋友碰上头。除了头被啃了的几个人,大家都还是老样子。唱完k,吃完饭,快11点的时候我们去了bbt。12点刚过,手机响了。

是妈妈,还能有谁?她在电话中很生气很生气。其实她生气的时候我很少能够说她不是很生气很生气。我不知道我爸现在生气的时候是不是样子也差不多,不过两个人在火头上时的表现有一拼。那都是能够让我说不出话来的表现。别人生气的时候,我仍然能够保持理智,我可以想出数十种让他们消气儿的主意并且在最短的时间选出最容易的方法来执行它。可当他们俩生气的时候,尤其是我妈,我除了感觉到慌以外,脑袋完全一片空白。我记得在温哥华的时候,当我爸生气的时候,我脑袋会轰地一下一阵热,心里除了害怕就是想变成鸵鸟然后把头埋起来。一点儿都没夸张,真的。现在当我妈生气的时候,我不会害怕,只是不知道怎样才能让她消气儿。我是真的心疼她,听着她尖锐的声音喊过来,我着实担心她会不会累着或是嗓子疼。当然,心中也会感觉抱歉并且难过,大多时候也会委屈,想哭,想吼回去,却极少吼回去。

那天晚上我在外面听着电话,看着路人,流着眼泪,忍着不让妈妈从电话中听出来。打完电话后,擦干眼泪,恢复情绪,避免让朋友看出来,然后收拾东西回家。一路上除了寂寞,还是寂寞。有时候寂寞是从落差中感觉到的。我从繁忙的一天,在霎那间变成孤寂一人,自然会有些感触。而且是冬季,按Terry的说法,冬季令伴侣分离,是个孤独的季节。仔细回想,我跟Jon也是在夏季相恋冬季分手的。

妈妈为什么生气呢。因为她特地赶回来从王叔叔家把狗接回家,等我回家,却等不到,打电话也没人接。终于接通后却已经12点多了,她想要睡觉了,但是狗会叫,她会睡不好觉。如果等狗睡着后,我才回家就又会将他吵醒。她已经很累了,又不能睡觉,所以火爆脾气冒了出来。也许我的电话收讯不良,所以我一直没有接收到她的电话。再加上我的记性不好,所以不记得她前天晚上表态说她会赶回来,心里一直以为狗会在王叔叔家过夜。总而言之,我把她惹火了。而我甚至不知道该怎么补救。我问她是想让我马上赶回去还是一夜都不回家?她说随便你。挂了电话后我又打过去问,一通训斥之后还是随便你。这种情况我已经什么逻辑都没了,打电话给Jim,他建议我马上回家。

我1点多到家,陪着狗陪到3点多,上床睡觉。

第二天跟妈妈好好谈了谈,恳求她并建议她不要这么容易动火。很多时候生不必要的气。电话我没接并不是我的错,而是确实没有接收到讯息。生这种气只是吃力不讨好,因为并不是我能够左右的。更加不必要的是联系起其它的事情来,比如开始埋怨我不顾家什么的,也不知道打电话回来之类的。这些都只是徒增自己的火气的想法。我跟妈妈表态了自己确实是忘记了,并不是故意的。道歉之后,两个人和好了。我妈最好的一点就是脾气不隔夜。我也是如此。

那天晚上我记得我感觉最委屈的是因为我妈说我不负责任,对狗对家里都是如此。我很不服气,针对这句话发挥自己忍耐的能力。我没回嘴说什么,第二天道歉也没有针对这句话说什么,而是表态自己尽了最大能力去负责。然而我心里却觉得自己是一个很有责任感的人。起码在同龄的孩子当中我觉得我对身边的人跟事都比较负责。直到今天我才突然意识到,妈妈所谓的责任感跟我对责任感的认知有着明显的差距。我所认识到的责任感是针对80年代出生的孩子而言的。而妈妈所谓的责任感则是她那一代人所承担下来的,自然很不一样。我庆幸当时并没有凭着自己的想法一股脑地吼回去,幼稚且不理智。很多时候我觉得三思而后行都是不理智的行为,因为我们本身就有着很多不理智的想法,都是要到更成熟后才能够看得到的。而那更成熟并不是做事当前三思就能够想得到的。对于在乎的人,真的是要做到忍字心上一把刀一般。伤害他们就等于伤害到自己。

我清楚地明白,就算我现在已然20了,也仍然做不到父母当年16,7岁的时候所能够承担的责任。他们那时是情势所逼,并且没有从小像我们这样被社会保护着、被父母宝贝着。当年的社会与家庭观念都造就了我们现在两代人针对责任感的不同观点,这是我无从改变的。我能够做到的就是尝试更快地成长,向着独挡一面迈步。没必要也没可能去改变父母对于责任感的不同认知。其实除了这一点,对于长辈而言,有很多观点都跟我们有着显著的差异。假设这些观点不涉及自身利益,就没必要去跟他们争执去尝试改变他们。改变他们对观点的态度要比改变我们对待他们对于观点的保持态度要难许多。我并不是一个盲目去顺从长辈的人,但我会尊重他们的观点,假设有所差别则不予置评。我会在适当的时候表态自己的想法,却仍要明白地告诉他们每个人的观点不一定要一拍即合。这对于喜欢较真儿的我来说何其之难……却是我认为正确的做法。

很好看,剧情不错,不会让人看了开头就知道中间与结尾怎样,情节生动,本来一本很凄惨的书,作者写得有些地方好好笑。女主角完美到人神共愤啊!!!不过还是好看,推荐指数起码可以到5颗星。

 

  「痞子学长,你的功力进步了耶。」她惊奇道,然后一口咬掉兔子头,再仔细观察半天,对着脸色发绿的痞子说道:「学长,它头不见了,这样会吓到订便当的顾客吧。」

I can’t read through all those emails. I ended up suffocating on my desk. What does that tell me..

I feel so lost right now..

如果听到叹息声,就代表这个人对目前状态不满足

我不记得这是从哪里读到的话

希望在这句话后面提供着解决方法

如何才能够填满那声空洞无力的叹息声呢?

才五点,窗外就已然乌云密布

难道在期待着一场暴风雨么?

遥望远方的路灯

在灰色的空气中

闪,闪,闪

Sometimes I feel women are born as liars. No one can hint better than us, we always get what we want without declaring it. But what do you do when you face a guy who doesn’t even get you what you want when you clearly stated it out for him?

the “it” book

60uniteforchildren.com is a website designed for the launch of the newly published Art Book. This 180 pages book gathers artworks created by 60 graphic artists across the globe and is dedicated to UNICEF. After some readings, I feel that the goal of this project is not only to profit UNICEF, but also to promote graphic arts. I’m personally interested in graphic arts, so I actually know about some of the artists involved in this project. Their individual work, if being published in prints, would easily cost over the price they are selling for this book.

APAG’s association (Association for the Promotion of Graphic Arts) is the non-profit organization behind this project and they’ve cut down on some of the prices on shipping so that this book can be even more affordable. The price of this book is at 35EURO and shipping to Canada is 19EURO. I checked the exchange rate to Canadian dollars and it came to a total at around $73 including shipping. I’m not really a big fan of collecting items, but I do feel that this is something worth keeping in my own hands. Not to mention it is for a good cause, but also the rare occasion of a book that is solely created by 60 united graphic artists for the purpose of raising awareness.

Just a quick mention: the book has just been launched for sale online on October 24, 2007. There are only 2000 copies produced and 1800 on stock.
