God piss in my breakfast cereal

I don't believe in god... well not usually, although I can be considered antagonistic.
I only believe in GOD's existence when it decides to take a long hard piss towards my way.

"This film has not been rated"

A movie about the MPAA (Motion Picture Association America) film rating system and how the government and the big corporate industries are controlling what is being shown in media.
Nothing too shocking but something that really gets you thinking.
The most important point this movie takes is how the rating system is a monopoly system where there can be no other rating. Also how sex is considered bad while violence is allowed. Also how the the MPAA is essentially blocking the independent movie makers to distribute their work from even to be seen through ridiculous rating systems.

Whichever the case, it is interesting to listen to all the directors who has gotten the NC 17 rating for their movies, why it was the case . most of which is ridiculous...

Stay at home dad

As family norms, gender norms change more and more men are allowed and take the opportunities to stay home with their children. In most countries, men are allowed to share the parental leave given from 3months up to 3 years with the mothers. Also in many countries, such as Sweden, Denmark there are leaves that are ear-marked for men.(which means that they loose this benefit when they do not take it up).
This trend makes it easier for us to spot men with buggies alone on week day afternoons, doing shopping. Also men with young toddlers playing on the play ground on weekdays.
Anyhow, Jon la Joie wrote a song just for these daddies who stay at home and take care of their children.. quite hilarious, using heavy metal as the medium. However, the fact of being a stay at home dad? It will become more and more common... no joking matter.
