For sale: One life in China

Chen Xiao had pretty much given up making her own decisions and so decided to throw open her life to the whims of China's hundreds of millions of Internet users, known in China as netizens."It's your right to arrange Chen Xiao's life, and it's my obligation to serve you," read her online shop.Since December, Chen has been allowing others to decide what she will do each day, because, for the most part, last year was awful, she said.

Her hometown was hit by blizzards, her country rocked by a devastating earthquake, friends divorced and her clothing shop went bankrupt."Every time I had a plan for what I wanted my life to be like, nothing would come of it. It was very disappointing. I figured if other people came up with things for me to do, I might stumble upon something new and better."

What she stumbled upon was not only a new life but a new way to make a living. She charges about $3 an hour, and she's been asked to do almost everything from delivering pet food to caring for stray cats to taking a hot lunch to a homeless man.What surprised her the most was not so much the varied requests but being able to find happiness in the process."If somebody asks you to do something, something simple, and you do it, it can make you very happy.

You can change from a gloomy person to a very bright one. It can help give you a new sense of self-esteem," she said.So far, the most meaningful assignment she was given was attending a child's birth -- the father was a complete stranger who just wanted someone to take pictures and share the moment.

California to Legalize Marijuana?

* via

In 1996, California became the first start to legalize medical marijuana. As cash-strapped as the state is, all bets are off. Assembly Bill AB 390 would legalize, and tax, marijuana sales in California.
Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San Francisco, introduced legislation Monday. If approved by the California Legislature and signed by the governor, it would effectively do what many have wanted: make pot the same as alcohol, in terms of legalities, anyway.
AB 390 has been endorsed by some law enforcement officials and would tax all pot sales at a rate of $50 per ounce.
At a news conference at the state building on Golden Gate Avenue in San Francisco, Ammiano said:
"With the state in the midst of an historic economic crisis, the move towards regulating and taxing marijuana is simply common sense. California has the opportunity to be the first state in the nation to enact a smart, responsible public policy for the control and regulation of marijuana."
Besides that, of course, it would add, according to Ammiano, $1.3 billion in tax revenue annually.
Ammiano added:
"We could in fact have the political will to do something, and certainly in the meantime this is a public policy call and I think it's worth the discussion. I think the outcome would be very healthy for California and California's economy."
Even if California were to pass this, federal law still prohibits marijuana use. That fact has gotten some medical marijuana users and growers into trouble, and AB 390 would just exacerbate that problem.
*** can't give my opinion on smoking because it would make me a target, lol but watch these next vids and give it a thought!

Want some Fries with that Barbie?


A new ad campaign by an organization called the Active Life Movement is relying on the paragons of impossible beauty to teach kids about the perils of obesity. Since toys like Barbie really encourage healthy body images and lifestyles….
The goal of the Active Life Movement is laudable—to encourage kids to be active and healthy—but this ad campaign is certainly not serving that goal. As Jezebel points out, toys like Barbie and Superman hardly have body types that kids should be striving for.
And the ads’ tag line—“Keep obesity away from your child”—is unnecessarily harsh, making it sound as if being overweight is a contagious disease. Being healthy does not necessarily mean being thin, just as being thin does not necessarily mean being healthy. I would hope that the epidemic of eating disorders among increasingly young kids has taught us that by now.
This ad is the visual equivalent of shouting at kids, “Don’t be fat! Be beautiful! Or else everyone will hate you!” Active Life Movement, I suggest sending your creative directors back to the drawing board.

Volta Overload

So. It turns out that the Grammy's are somewhat legit after all. I know this is a little late but The Mars Volta won a Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance on their song "Wax Simulacra". I am a huge volta fan but I realize they are a hate or love kind of band. Whatever your choice is you can't say they aren't doing something unique. They are very left wing kind of people and that's what I like so much. Anyway, they WON! against people like Disturbed and Tommy Lee. (I know, I know WTF I said to myself too) I'm really glad to see a bunch of spics like me onstage at such a big event. BIG UP TO ONE OF THE MOST UNIQUE ACTS OF TODAYS MUSIC - THE MARS VOLTA!

The Mars Volta - Wax Simulacra

Now - with that being said. The guitarist/leader of the band released a record on Stones Throw which in my opinion is one of the most accesible records this cat has put out to date. And the vinyl looks beautiful, Come on!

The Real Experience

I'm a dj ... so I use records, cd's, tapes, blah blah blah .... Now even Serato is a must. But to be completely honest. I still love going to the records store and getting the actual vinyl - to me its pretty romantic (lol) to read all the little details that are hidden in the packaging and actual vinyl. but don't let me get any further ... Hear this guy out!


happy valentines day!!

This is 13-year-old Alfie Patten, his 15-year-old girlfriend Chantelle Steadman and their brand new baby girl Maisie Roxanne.

happy valentines day everyone...can you believe that s**t?!?!? seriously what are you doing having sex at 13 and 15??? the boy doesnt look older than 8 and hes a dad...

i blame our society ... all you see is sex sex sex everywhere...yet no one wants to talk about it. parents dont want their kids getting an education on it... & we've deviated away from the idea so bad that it's almost a taboo subject to talk about one of the most normal things that exist.

any way...i dont celebrate valentines day...but to all those who do...WEAR PROTECTION..unless you want a baby :)

See what drugs do?

So I am completely into Current TV at the moment. In my opinion it's the best TV I've ever seen. EVER! The coolest, dopest, most informative form of news I have ever come across. And don't let me forget ... funniest. While browsing through the website. Came across this ... Joaquin Phoenix on Letterman. The guy looks as if he took some high quality acid. Please take a look for yourself

Stones Throw kicks off Dilla Month

As a 1st post I couldn’t find anything better then a Madlib album. In case you don’t know who madlib is please run over to Stones Throw real quick.
Maldib has been making some of the finest hip-hop ever! His style is unique in the sense that … well? Nothing like it has been made before! His Beat Konducta series has been a bunch of instrumental tracks with his signature mind-bending samples all over it making it almost like a movie but in audio. It’s a whole trip!

And today he (& J Rocc) released Beat Konducta Vol. 5 -6 a tribute to J Dilla. Which in my opinion is some of the most unwordly mystical hip-hop ever released. Pay a tribute to the man an run over & get it now!

*edit* NPR did a spot on him please take a listen. -It's dilla month.
