Sexadelic Dead Hawaiian Fat Guy Dance Party

Google AdSense says We're over 80,000 random revelations page viewers since I started keeping track last spring almost a year or so ago in 2005...

by contrast, I note that McDonald's has served over 175 Billion Hamburgers since 1955

hmm... but i'm catching up...and doing it madcow & bird flu free in electronic hyperlinked vegetarian stylee, leaving behind way less methane, and wrappers...and slaughterhouse "offal"...

hmmm. ... uh, what else to say before we start the dance party...

how about, Today I just attended a lecture on "Rape in Renaissance Italy"...

uh, I had no idea the topic was so in depth, their was even a professor who'd flown out from from Texas Tech to speak to all 6 or 7 of us in the room... sadly, I could only stay a few minutes, and had to leave before it was even wrapped up...

tings i learned about Rape in Renaissance Italy, well it was popular, at least in art...
rape of the sabine women In fact the Romans sorta built a whole lotta heroic folklore on it, if not the basis of their culture. Check out the story about Romulus and the rape of the Sabine Women for background...

oh, and I guess you can even research court documents going back to the 1600's to read rape trial backround... old Roman paintings and sculptures are sorta like the court TV of their time. In fact the Italians loved rape so much, it was hardly a crime, and until 1981 as long as you married your rape victim, you could be exonerated !

That's like so, totally progressive... in an Italian goombah sort of way. In fact it's now 2006, and an Italian court recently rule d in favor of a man who forced his stepdaugther into performing oral copulation when she wouldn't have intercourse.mazing what passes for reason in some regions of the world. Read a recent news blurb I found that will "enlighten" you:

Sexually abusing a teenager is less serious a crime if the girl is not a virgin, An Italian court ruled in favor on Friday of a man in his forties, identified only as Marco T., who forced his 14-year old stepdaughter to have oral sex with him after she refused intercourse.

The man, had been sentenced to three years and four months in jail, lodged an appeal arguing that the fact that his stepdaughter had had sex with men before should have been taken into consideration during his trial as a mitigating factor.

The supreme court agreed, saying that because of her previous sexual experiences, the victim's "personality, from a sexual point of view, is much more developed than what would be normally expected of a girl of her age".

"It is therefore fair to argue that (the damage for the victim) would be lower" if the abused girl was not a virgin, Italian news agencies quoted the court as saying.
In recent years Italy's high courts have ruled that "an isolated and impulsive" pat on a woman's buttocks at work did not constitute sexual harassment, and returned a verdict that a woman could not have been raped because she was wearing skin-tight jeans.

Wham... a track from their last single, Edge of Heaven... circa 1990 or so

Wham - Edge of Heaven

and we all know that trying to get to the Edge of Heaven leads to, uh, passing out in a parked car, who hasn't done that, oh wait..maybe the answer is somewhere over the rainbow...

The guy who recorded this next song was a huge Hawaiian, and not just huge in the showbiz sense. Israel was a severley overweight behemoth, with a high beautiful lilting voice.
performing before his death with atube in his nose

A true giant, who was once part of the group called the Makaha Sons Of Nihau... Nihau is an island in the Hawaiian islands reserved for true natives, and is basically untainted by tourists in rental cars from Iowa with cameras around their necks ...

Read about Iz's past in this informative article printed last year from the Honolulu Star

He put out several albums before his death at age 38, but this track is likely his most famous... having been in various movies like "Meet Joe Black", "Gideon's Crossing," "Finding Forrester," "50 First Dates" and a season ending episode of ER in 2001 as well as an EToys.com TV commercial.

His music is perfect for when you're lazily hanging out in the islands , or even just wishing maybe you was there...
