My friend Bret showed me this clip and now I can’t stop singing this tune. Therefore I give it to all of you. If you ever want to do Zazen peacefully again, do not watch it. It will stick in your brain forever.


I warned you!

    Dudes and Dudettes…..I think there is a subtle but uh blatant message here about zazen practice….It’s like the cakes spine is perfectly aligned at the end….perfect zazen posture. You can’t be lazy. Gotta go by the book. And uh lots of other really pink things.

    Reminds me of Venerable Robina Courtins statement that the Buddha’s teachings provide precise instructions for enlightenment – “just like the recipe for a cake”, followed by complaints about hobby buddists who peruse the recipe but “never bake the cake”.

    The lyrics get a whole new twist with that in mind. πŸ™‚

    Random request. Just read chapter40 in Shobogenzo: Gabyo. If you’re still taking suggestions for posts, any chance on hearing your thoughts on that chaper?

    It struck me as rather groovy cause it seemed to deal with ideas about things.

    hey, brad’s friend bret.. that was a very good idea you had to put up some of brad’s hill street center talks onto MYSPACE. But it would be an even better idea to put up a new one every once in a while.. remember, never use a messy recipe, or the cake will end up crazy.

    So Brad is saying that we have to bake cakes, but then he’s saying that it’s messy. So what I’m seeing is that Brad is saying that the cakes are like our lives and that sometimes they get messy… But then there’s that one puppet with the blonde hair– he kinda looks like me… I think Brad is sending me a secret message.

    Here’s something else to ruin your zazen forever…

    “BBC Reported Building 7 Had Collapsed 20 Minutes Before It Fell”:

    someone screwed up

    “Video: BBC Was Half An Hour Too Early Reporting On WTC7 Collapse”:

    the timing of the plan

    If you fast-forward to 16:55 in the video, you’ll see Jane Standley
    reporting that

    “The 47 storey Salomon Brothers building [ i.e. WTC7 ] close
    to the World Trade Centre has also collapsed.”

    BUT just above her left shoulder, still standing, is WTC7.

    Oops! Someone issued the WTC7 collapse press release ahead of
    schedule — BEFORE the actual controlled demolition.

    Since I listen to a lot of music, I often catch myself on having catchy tunes in my mind. It’s pretty frustrating, and sadly enough, I do get distracted quite easily and just stop the zazen practice.

    I have to sit first thing in the morning when my mind is still kind of quiet. it’s funny but there is never a time when there isn’t a song in my head except maybe in deep zazen, and even then it’s there sometimes. I play a game with my girlfriend. we ask each other throughout the day, what song is in your head? both of us are never without an answer.

    More clips to ruin your Zazen.

    Here is some strange fake Japanese Pee Wee’s Playhouse style show called Gorgeous Tiny Chicken Machine Show with….ah interesting songs.

    The coolest part is at the end when the cute Japanese girl sings “I just got this lousy t-shirt. It says Too Drunk to F..K.” which of course is a song by the Dead Kennedy’s. DK rule!

    started off assuming 9/11 conspiracy’s were bollocks but i’ve now realised that it’s all totally fucked. in a few decades people will learn about the 9/11 cover up in school the way kids currently learn about all the soviet propaganda from the 20th century.

    Enough with the 9/11 posts already. Believing in a 9/11 conspiracy is as stupid as believing in anything else that has no real evidence to support it. You want to believe that Martians are sneaking into your bedroom at night while you sleep? I can set up a professional looking website to prove it to people as long as they’re dolts. Just because it’s on the web doesn’t make it true. It doesn’t even make sane. Take that crazy bat shit somewhere else.

    When someone at South Park Elementary defecates in a urinal, Mr. Mackey searches for the boy responsible. Cartman begins to rant that it was a conspiracy, “just like 9/11”, which he had been ranting about for a while. The others, on the other hand, simply brush him off as a “retard.” Cartman performs an investigation, which he presents to his class in an impressive PowerPoint presentation. He claims that the true culprit behind the 9/11 attacks was Kyle. He has no real evidence to conclude this but uses some convoluted (and rather inane) numerology involving Kyle’s score on a test he earned a few days after the 9/11 attacks. Nevertheless, he manages to convince everyone that Kyle is guilty. When Kyle tells his mother that everyone thinks he is the 9/11 culprit, she calls a town meeting, arguing that children don’t understand enough about the September 11th attacks. However, many of the townspeople also believe 9/11 might have been the result of a conspiracy, so they hire The Hardly Boys (parody of The Hardy Boys) to discover the results of both the 9/11 attacks and the urinal incident, which the Hardly Boys decide must be related. During the whole process they make concealed sexual comments in their investigation.

    Kyle enlists Stan’s help, and they leave South Park to find an organization that can prove Kyle’s innocence. The group they find, however, believes that the United States government orchestrated the 9/11 attacks. The conspiracy organization have bottles of anthrax, which they use as “evidence” of the attack. As Kyle is holding them, a SWAT team attacks and arrests Kyle, Stan, and the leader of the conspiracy organization. They are taken to The White House. Presidential officials, along with President George W. Bush, quickly admit that the government actually is behind 9/11. Bush explains the incredibly convoluted method, which seems to greatly dishearten Kyle (who responds repeatedly with a comical, high-noted “Really?!” response), who always believed such theories were stupid. Since Bush admits this information, he decides to kill Stan, Kyle, and the conspiracy leader, as to not have this information leak out. The head of the conspiracy group is executed by George W. Bush.

    George W. Bush “executing” the head of the conspiracy group.As Dick Cheney tries to execute Stan and Kyle with a crossbow (in a parody of Cheney’s hunting incident), he misses (again) and allows the boys to escape. Meanwhile, Clyde is caught for the urinal incident, and while he admits to it, his parents tell Mr. Mackey he had a colostomy at age 5. Meanwhile the students continue to take glee at Mr. Mackey’s determination to find the culprit. Later, in Chicago, Stan and Kyle run into the leader of the conspiracy group alive and well. After a short chase by Stan and Kyle, he is cornered in a back alley and shot dead by the father of the Hardly boys, who reveals that his sons discovered that all the conspiracy websites are false and run by the government. Stan, Kyle, and the Hardly family congregate at the Hardly house as the Bush Administration arrives, and eventually admits that the government wasn’t behind 9/11. He explains they actually run the websites, so that the fourth of the country who are dumb enough to believe conspiracies will believe the government is all-powerful, while the other 3/4’s know the truth: that “a bunch of pissed off Muslims” actually executed the 9/11 attacks.
