jaylectricity: That's weird, the hyphen was longer when I previewed the comment, otherwise I would have just said hyphen instead of "-" mark.


The Fark filter claims yet another Farker's hymen hyphen.

People say he's crazy because he's got blades on the bottoms of his shoes

And she said honey take me protesting
But they ended up losing their virginities
In a park
Throwing batteries and being dicks
And then getting beat up by cops
Wearing blades on the bottoms of their shoes

FARK needs an Occupy tag. I can hardly keep up.
 
2011-11-18 01:42:18 PM  
and the true motivation behind the occupy crowd emerges... something to do, and getting laid

Theaetetus: "I got blades on the bottoms of my shoes... I roundhouse kicked [one] in the balls," he said.

Great, charge him with assault with a deadly weapon and attempted mayhem.


Oh, c'mon, this obviously didn't happen. If he roundhouse kicked someone in the balls, the other guy must have been HUGE.

I'm starting to feel like this is one of those "awareness" movements.

"Yeah, OK. We're aware. Now do something about it or leave us alone."

well, who HASN'T lost their virginity in their mid 20's while camping out in a city park, fighting the establishment, and then proceeded to get their head all bleedy-like for being a jackarse?

I have many friends sympathetic to their cause and not a single positive thing was said on Facebook about yesterday. Entirely people biatching about how it farked with their commute.

eh, I think about how the police can do whatever they want, especially put their dirty pig hands down my girlfriend's pants while I'm in handcuffs, and I say more power to this guy. He escaped from a police van, fark yeah. Make life for these assholes as miserable as possible.

/there is nothing the protestors have done that equates to stabbing a woman in the stomach with a nightstick

BRANDON WATTS, 19:
I came here because it felt like something I could help out with. I've been arrested eight times so far this protest. I have a bruise from the Brooklyn Bridge march. I caught cops on a bad day, a bad week, and they did stupid stuff. The police threw me over the barricades. Literally, they just picked me up and tossed me, but I got away.

I'm doing well now, though. I drank six Four Lokos with Core, a beer or two. And then we ordered an iced mocha and two chicken fingers and large fries. I lost my virginity today. I was amped for it.

Interviews by Spencer Bailey

/// Photo in the above NY Times link. Is he wearing lipstick?

is it safe to say that the creature he's holding is what he lost his virginity to?
i don't even know what to say.


No, she flat out says that she wasn't the one that farked him.

What I don't get is the cluelessness of some of these people, like the friend of Brandon who was interviewed:

Core Jones, 20:
I agree with the Occupy Wall Street demands. I'm a college student working for my education. Both my parents are cops, and I split the tuition payments with my father. I get paid about $300 if I work 20 hours at AutoZone in Brooklyn. They give me good hours, so it's $717 a month. But when I get out of broadcasting college, what job am I really going to get? I may have to go to Kansas just to get a normal job with low pay, and that frustrates me. I want to stay in New York. I was born and raised here.


If you want a good paying job, you don't go to farking Broadcasting College! That trains you to use your voice so that you can say "You want fries with that?" in a smooth, dulcet tone. And if you truly, truly want to get into broadcasting, then you pay your dues by starting out in some crappy little market, like Kansas. You don't graduate from Broadcasting College and immediately get a job in the #1 media market in the country, you dumbass. This girl is protesting for what? That there should be better paying jobs in broadcasting? That someone should hire her in New York City so that she doesn't have to move? How about protesting for a top floor Manhattan apartment and a lifetime supply of cocaine while you're at it?

I'm sure that there are many people in the protest that really have a clue, and that know why they are protesting. But it seems that the majority of people are just clueless, like Core Jones.

I'm glad someone else read this story, because I have a degree in broadcast journalism and what this girl is saying is the most selfish and ignorant nonsense I've ever heard.

EVERYONE has to pay their dues to break into the field. If you expect to start in NYC, you should be prepared to work horrible hours for very little (if any) pay. Rather than sleeping in Zuccotti Park, you should have been doing an internship, that would have given you a chance to break in at the bottom of the foodchain with a broadcasting entity in the NY area.

The FACT is, if you're SERIOUS about a career in broadcasting, you need to be prepared to move around, even to places you consider undesirable. Or, you should be prepared to work multiple jobs to make ends meet. I worked for 18 months after graduating as a waiter and bank teller before getting a job (in DC, full disclosure) running the board at a sports radio station three nights per week from midnight-6 AM for a whopping $10/hr. The rest of the time, I was waiting tables at the damn Olive Garden.

This spoiled brat expects a good-paying job in her chosen market immediately out of college? Seriously, fark off honey. I hope your resume comes across my desk someday so I can run it through a shredder.

The only thing I'll defend about the broadcasting field is that you SHOULD gain technical skills in production if you're serious about it. My guess, though, is that this imbecile has dreams about being a TV talking head and expects to do it immediately.

He also gloated about an alleged fight on a downtown train with four men who attacked one of his female friends.

"I stood up and defended her," he said. "I got blades on the bottoms of my shoes and a blade in my pocket."

But he said he never had to use a weapon.

"I roundhouse kicked [one] in the balls," he said. "I got only two black eyes, and they got carried out with handcuffs and stretchers."


Umm... this kid is a huge asshole (and likely a liar too). If I were at the protests, I wouldn't want him on my side.

I think this is a northeast thing. When I lived up in Connecticut for a few years (went for a job) I was amazed at the number of people who had spent their entire lives in that area and wouldn't consider moving. I remembering being in my boss's office one day when this attractive women walked by, he told me that she got caught by a teacher giving some guy a hand job in the 9th grade. He said he had known her since they went to the same elementary school.

Around Houston, you find a lot of Texans from other parts of the state and from Louisiana, Ohio, Indiana, Nebraska, etc. When I ask why they came to Houston, the response is the same -- its where the jobs are.

On Thursday, Watts stood atop a wall inside Zuccotti Park and tossed objects - including a AAA battery - at cops standing outside the barricade along Liberty St., police said.
Suddenly, the 6-foot-1, 160-pound Watts charged the officers and snatched a hat off the head of a deputy inspector, cops said.
He has been arrested four times since Sept. 24 for resisting arrest, loitering in disguise, escaping from a prisoner van and stealing orange mesh fencing, police said.
He even bragged about some of the arrests to a Daily News reporter on Oct. 1.
"I got loose from them and I ran and I knocked down the barricades as much as I could," he said of one collar.

Need more people like this guy. fark the cops, as they are nothing but servants of the 1%'ers. Civil war against the servants of the 1%ers(police) is a decent idea. Still waiting for when a Occupier is murdered by the police(or a tea bagger). It would be interesting to see how the politicians try to cover up the murder(planted, evidence of mass destruction, on the corpse).

/This is public property being occupied, so fark off.

//hey quit quoting man, self-defense is a 100% legal Right to protect you or your companions from people(in this case, the cops) attacking you or your companions without proper legal justification(weeks and weeks of attacks by the police).
///Amazing on how many peaceful Occupiers have been violently assaulted by the police(especially the white shirt cops) and then arrested for doing the same thing that the homeless do, which is occupying this world on public property.

¡Viva la Revolución!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kent_State_shootings
The Kent State shootings-also known as the May 4 massacre or the Kent State massacre- occurred at Kent State University in the city of Kent, Ohio, and involved the shooting of unarmed college students by members of the Ohio National Guard on Monday, May 4, 1970. The guardsmen fired 67 rounds over a period of 13 seconds, killing four students and wounding nine others, one of whom suffered permanent paralysis.

Oh I was born in Massachusetts, lived in NH and Boston thru about the 7th grade. CT in my early 30's. I loved it, I liked being able to drive to various diffrent areas in 1/2 day. West Point, 2 hrs; Mystic, 2 hrs; Western MA, 2 hrs; Southern VT; 3 hrs; Maine Coast, 5 hrs; Newport, 3 hrs, etc etc. I loved having seasons and seeing the leaves turn in Fall, driving to Pioneer Valley for breakfast on Sunday morning at a maple sugar shack and having pancakes while looking over a dew covered meadow.

Life is more than about sightseeing. Sorry I never got the excitement about NYC, to me it seemed like a dump, of course this was during Dinkins reign.

As some one who works in the broadcasting industry, let me give a warning to everyone out there who thinks they will get a good paying career one they get out of broadcasting school. (This is 1st hand knowledge, I went to a broadcasting school in the late 90's). It is not about where you go to school, it is about getting your foot in the door at a station, (often through unpaid internships) and then doing all the work no one else wants to. My broadcasting school did not get me my job, I got my job years later when I scored an internship at a local station through a community college. Yeah, classes can be fun and you can learn alot, but that piece of paper you graduate with mean nothing. You have a better chance of getting a broadcasting job, just going to all a station's remotes and bugging the talent for an opportunity at an internship.

That there should be better paying jobs in broadcasting? That someone should hire her in New York City so that she doesn't have to move? How about protesting for a top floor Manhattan apartment and a lifetime supply of cocaine while you're at it?

I'm sure that there are many people in the protest that really have a clue, and that know why they are protesting. But it seems that the majority of people are just clueless, like Core Jones.


everyone feels entitled. especially the communications based kids. i graduated from college in 2008 with a degree in writing and a degree in video production. i pretty much went to college because it was what was "expected of me" and i picked those degrees because i liked to write and because i took a lame video class in high school and thought it was "fun". math was/is my mortal enemy so anything involving that was out of the question.

anyway! one thing i learned from four years of college, and pretty much the only thing, is that all kids in communications/video/graphic design/music/whatfarkingever, think they are gods gift to the universe. obviously video production/movie making is a profession where team work is necessary, but do you know how hard it is to agree on a script to execute when you're up against 15 college kids who think their pitch for a zombie gang invading a sorority while driving flaming mopeds is the BEST MOST UNIQUE MOVIE EVER!?

now, almost four years after graduating, i can go on facebook and see that all of them are doing...nothing. many of them are keeping busy as occupiers. why? because they weren't willing to work the shiatty job at first. they all thought they'd hit it big and be the next scorsese. sadly when i look at the occupy movement all i see, sadly, is a bunch of college kids with parents who paid for their college. they didn't have to work a crappy job the pay for it themselves, so they had lots of time to spend building up their egos. and now they're out of school with no job as a bigshot editor because that's not how the world works. and now they need to whine about it.

well i have to two degrees and i answer phones at a real estate company. boo freaking hoo. stop blocking traffic when i'm just trying to get back to my apartment so i can eat my meatless sloppy joes, because that's all i can afford, but god damnit, i'm happy. i'm happy!

Can we speed this decline of the American empire up a bit please? I'd like to be able to come down to the US and buy up foolish Americans homes for pennies on their increasingly worthless dollar. What will also bring a smile to my face is seeing most Americans tearing each other apart for scraps, minimum wage jobs, temp work, food stamps, government hand outs, the works.

You all had way too many chances to fix this system but you chose ignorance and gluttony instead. The bed has been made and now America is waking up to a steaming pile of crap that is now you and your children's futures. The pillaging of the middle class in America has begun for the wealthy of the world, and i'm just starting to fill my Christmas stocking!

To see so many of you in here chastising the people that are fighting for more equality for dirt bags like YOU just reinforces how needed this bilking of the general public was, and continues to be.

/I hope the bankers rip off every last penny of wealth out of you before they let the system crash and start up the next round
// hopes to rent out your homes back to you that I bought up in foreclosure
/// I'm a nice guy, you can still live in your house. Your just my biatch now : )

(Rushmore filmed in Houston)

One my fav films, live about a mile from where that photo was taken, Del Mar and almost stopped at 11th St Barbershop but I knew Seymour Cassel wouldn't be giving me a haircut.


Cool, I live in the Heights. I used to work on Hempstead and drove by Del Mar every day.
I do laundry across the street from the barber shop.

jdmac:
You have a better chance of getting a broadcasting job, just going to all a station's remotes and bugging the talent for an opportunity at an internship.

Very, very much this.

Instead of spending a couple of years and upwards of $80,000 at one of those "production" schools, get a regular job, then do what jdmac says. Same goes for recording studios and other video and audio production gigs, like radio or even companies that make industrial videos.

Hell, if you're in the right town and have a little bit of skill (high school AV club, for example), you can usually talk your way into a real job at entry level - which means $10-$12 an hour to start. All you have to do is show up and work not-that-hard, while learning stuff.

That's the thing, though - there are a whole lot of "party kids" who love living the "gangsta-lite" lifestyle, and they can't manage to show up for even a simulation of a regular job. I know a bunch of younger guys in my field who could be making serious bucks, but they can't manage to even show up on time more than once a week.
