break your face links

a muni bus driver recently was caught on tape advising that he was going to “break the face” of a passenger who had called him out on being rude to a elderly chinese rider. more here [muni harshness].

after going through that, sink your teeth into these links on the worst day of the work week – tuesday:

muni harshness

its been years since i rode the bus, but most of my county transit experience back in the day was mostly unremarkable, which is probably a good thing. seems like some muni drivers are the repeated targets of complaints, but muni management doesn’t do much to get rid of them.

consider this:

“Hey, she’s just an old Chinese lady. You didn’t have to be rude to her,” says a passenger.

“All I said was did you read the front of the bus?,” says Andrews.

“Well obviously she didn’t,” says a passenger.

“Shut the f*ck up you clown,” says Andrews.

The argument gets heated.

“What are you gonna do about it?,” says Andrews.

You gonna come out here?” says a passenger.

“you don’t wanna f*ck with me.” says Andrews.

Then, as Andrews drives off, he threatens the man over the bus’ loudspeaker system.

“I’ll break your f*cking face,” says Andrews.

am i getting old?

i usually watch channel 2 news at night, but the remotes were across the room and the cost/benefit ratio wasn’t enough to get me out of the chair, so i stuck with channel 7 news. during the segment, i saw a commercial for a volvo c70 convertible:

man, that’s a good looking car. i then took a step back and had a moment of self-reflection – am i getting older now that a volvo looks pretty good to me? i will say that volvo’s have been softening up for years, considering they also fathered the 240dl some years ago:

but still, it’s kind of a paradigm shift for me. that volvo c70 above is no bmw z4, but at this point in my life i could use a back seat to hold the two car seats and have a teenager stashed in the middle. i also drive slower now and would lose my valuable civic hybrid carpool sticker status! (sorry wifey). check out the roof-folding mechanism below – gotta make sure you get the service contract on that sucka:

300 posts!

greetings to both of my readers. today marks a milestone in the long and storied history of this website. this is the 300th article to be posted, hopefully one of many that have made you laugh, cry, vow revenge, hurt someone, etc., over the past year or so.

actually, the posting has been light the last week or two because our home dsl is out. it’s set to be restored this week or early next week, at the latest. it’s hard posting over a sprint wireless connection which mimics my first non-modem internet connection ever, a 128k dual-channel isdn connection.

to commemorate our 300th post, state senator jackie speier has slipped the unofficial doylez.com hand salute at one of her recent political events.

titpoits!

new jack johnson album is out

the master of chill put out another album and is readying for another tour. he’s playing at coachella, which doesn’t seem his style, but im sure the fans will enjoy the tunes. even if the wife doesn’t want to go, i know flee will go with me to see him.

if you want to download the album, let me know and i’ll give you the link.

a little more on butterfeet

tri brought up this picture of gemma atkinson today and while she is well-endowed in other spots, she also sports these:

looks like she was in a weird pedicure machinery accident when she was younger. if adriana lima came up to me and her feet looked like that, i would turn her down without hesitation.

chris webber starting!

so, let’s hope that c-webb doesn’t get hurt on thursday and that he gets to play some good minutes when the warriors play the kings on sunday because i will be 4 rows up from the floor, courtesy of some free tickets from our new vp of marketing at work.

and then on sunday, me and the boys are going to pebble beach to watch some golf and sit in the vip tent. we might need a muzzle and/or a straitjacker for ozzie. i am going to have to find some pants without holes.

clinton, mccain carry california

so, california went with hillary today and not obama. i would have thought the bay area would have leaned obama’s way, but it seems that just about the whole state was with clinton on this one. you gotta admit that bill is a big part of how hillary got up to where she is. she seems a little more ordinary if she didn’t have him by her side. there’s some talk about obama being a running-mate to hillary, but i dont know how that would work.

on the republican side, mccain was leading most of the candidates as of the writing of this post. nothing typified a republican campaign headquarters than what they showed on channel 2 tonight. priya david was at their headquarters in pleasanton and there was about 15 white men chanting and holding signs. i swore one of them had a white pointy hood on in the background, but i was watching in standard def and not hd. even huckabee and romney had a person of color and a woman in their little committees.

more interesting for me was voting in my local precinct in fremont. my name wasn’t on the official voter rolls, so i had to vote provisional. i suppose in the grand scheme of things, it probably didn’t matter too much but it sure was intriguing to see all the different shapes, colors and sizes of people in my neighborhood.  without showing bias, i was easily the best basketball player of the group that i waited in line with.

and to close off this post, i saw this graphic which i think says it all:

he’s not talking about the gulf war.
