The advantage of using the computer over an air brush is its speed and versatility. It is also easier to fix mistakes so requires less concentration. It is, however, harder on the Artist’s eyes and doesn’t result in an actual physical original piece of art. –Royce McClure

bad news

Saturday, September 27th, 2008

I found this videotape of me on MTVu’s the Freshmen from like 2004. On the show we watched new videos and said funny things about them and I totally remembered that on the show we watched the video for Still Tippin’. I remember saying bad things about it. I was hoping to find this tape so I could use it as the source material for some sort of official video apology (response video?) to Mike Jones, Paul Wall, et. al.; a way to kind of formally retract my criticisms now that I am way down with Swishahouse and Texas rap in general.
Still Tippin’:

turns out that we didn’t even watch that video on the show. I had just somehow always remembered it that way. The only rap video that we watched was Nitty’s Nasty Girl. Which was pretty worthless, and certainly hasn’t gotten better since I last saw it.
Nitty’s Nasty Girl:

too bad.

Double Happiness Colon Debris – Commence Cleansing

Thursday, September 25th, 2008

the Colon Cleansing Kit by Double Happiness Solutions. Below she writes:

First of all, I must say it feels a bit weird to be sending pics of my poo to complete strangers…but all in the name of good sportsmanship! It felt even stranger to TAKE pics of my poo…

My name is Susan; I am 24 and live in beautiful HI. I have had GI problems as long as I can remember. After my husband and I made a big move from our hometown on the mainland to Hawaii, I was feeling pretty toxic. I wasn’t having regular bowel movements. I had tried colonics, diet modification, exercise, everything I could think of and was feeling pretty desperate. That is when I did a search for cleanses on the Internet and came across Double Happiness.

I did a lot of comparison and decided to give BH a try. The results were phenomenal. Everything that your company promised was delivered. I did the fast, only had the toxin absorber, organic apple, and some veggie broth with miso and, a ton of water. By day two my body was getting rid of some pretty nasty things and by day 5, I couldn’t believe the results. This product was great, I highly recommend it!

Thank you!

Above: Paul from Australia and his “results” passed while taking
the Colon Cleansing Kit by Double Happiness Solutions. Below he writes:

“I tried the colon cleansing kit for 8 days … End of day 2 was like large sausages being discharged and every day after that, gradually reducing in size by the eighth day. I had veggie broth in the evenings and I was surprised how good it felt to not be full all the time. It was no problem drinking juice, water and having broth. Another positive side effect is the way this process makes you review your eating habits and leaves you much more grateful for food when you resume eating. Anyway, I’ve recommended this already to several friends. Many years ago I used to juice fast with enemas, but your approach achieves a much more deep and thorough cleansing.

Thanks and regards,
Paul, Australia.”

Above: Linda from the USA and her “results” passed while taking
the Colon Cleansing Kit by Double Happiness Solutions. Below she writes:

“My name is Linda. Two years ago, just after my 37th birthday, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. Up until that point in my life, I was what I thought, very healthy. My onset of RA was severe, within 2 weeks I was unable to dress myself or even open the car door let alone run the five miles that I was used to running! After finding a doctor, I started the long road back to health. I spent the first year trying all the toxic drugs available for treating RA, Humira, methotrexate and a lot of steroids. I found that although I was functioning, I could feel that my body was still very sick!

My doctor then felt I was ready to try the harder way, but definitely the right way! I immediately removed all processed food from my diet and began to feel stronger and healthier than ever! I never really knew what good health was until I quit eating the poison that the American diet is so full of!

The next logical step after being in drug free remission for over 8 months was to try to rid my body of what damage I had done through poor diet. Thus came the idea through a friend for the Colon Cleanse! I’ve never felt better and what came out of me was shocking but reassuring that THIS IS A MUST DO! I feel stronger and healthier than ever, I can’t wait to do it again, and the experience was great. I had lots of energy and was surprised there was no hunger from start to finish!
– Linda”

Above: M. from the UK and his “results” passed while taking
the Colon Cleansing Kit by Double Happiness Solutions. Below he writes:

“As a vegetarian of 20 years, I did not expect much to come out, but how wrong I was! I was already getting results by the morning of day 2. It was wonderful not to experience the pangs of hunger, so I knew I’d last the full 5 days. It’s just wonderful knowing this stuff is out of you, and I will certainly do an annual cleanse now. I now find my mood has lifted, and I have about an extra hour’s energy a day before feeling tired. That gives me an additional 30 hours, or just over a day of extra time each month – remarkable!
Thank YOU
(Great) Britain”

the Colon Cleansing Kit by Double Happiness Solutions. Below he writes:

“I am sorry for not writing you, but it’s that time of year when it’s so hectic. I just haven’t had time, anyway, I sent you the pictures of what came out of me, well DrNature nothing came out. I don’t have that bloated feeling any more, my stomach is gone down a lot. I still feel that I should have another cleanse very soon. I want to know what you think. But the cleanse I did from you was excellent, I would recommend it to everybody, it was really great.
