John Mark Karr DNA Doesn’t Match; Charges Dropped

All murder charges against John Mark Karr, the man who was recently arresed in Thailand, flown back to the U.S. first class and willingly confessed to killing JonBennet Ramsey, has been aquitted of all murder charges.

DNA samples taken from Mr. John Mark Karr did not match those that were taken from JonBennet or any of her clothes. As such, the district attorney has dropped the warrant on John Karr and they will not be proceeding with the case.

I had the feeling this guy wasn’t actually guilty, but was just doing it for the attention. One thing is for sure, he may not have killed JonBennet, but he is still bat-shit crazy and a pedophile and should be locked up for good.

Thankfully this wack job isn’t getting set free again, but is being shipped back to California to face child pornography charges.

Taco Time Tackles The Little Guy

So, of all the stupid things, it looks like Taco Time of Canada has decided to go after a local mexican eatery called Casa de Amigos for using the supposedly copyright “Taco Tuesdays” slogan to promote their cheap taco deals. You’d think the fools at Taco Time would have better things to do, like maybe make their food edible and learn how to make tacos bigger then 2 inches long, but apparently not.

This looks like another case of a big company getting power hungry and bored, and deciding to go after a little guy trying to make a living cause they know they won’t be able to put up a fight.

The folks at Casa de Amigos have already had to pull anything referring to or mentioning the Taco Tuesdays slogan, and, as a result, have had to throw away around $5,000 in advertising, which is pretty rough for a smaller restaraunt.

What really gets me about this is something my wife brought to my attention last night. Being born and raised in Nebraska, where Mexicans and Mexican restaraunts are more common than Chinese food and Sushi in Vancouver, everyone and their brother that sells Tacos on a Tuesday uses the Taco Tuesdays slogan. Why is it just now that the big wigs at Taco Time have decided to go after anyone for using the slogan, must have been a boring day at corporate.

One things for sure, if Taco Time was trying to get some PR out of this, they sure are, but certainly not the kind of PR you WANT to get for your company. Although, getting this much PR for Casa de Amigos would have cost substantially more than the $5,000 they had to forfeit, so it’s not all bad for them. Next time you’ve got a hankering for some yummy Mexican food, think Casa de Amigos, not Taco Time.

Casa de Amigos is located at 8718 Granville St, in the Marpole area of South Vancouver.

Big Brother All Stars Update

The Emmy’s are still on and I’m watching them, so this is going to be a quick recap of tonight Big Brother All Stars episode.

Erika was the Head of Household.

The Legion of doom is pretty much broken up now that James is gone.

Danielle is still vowing to get rid of Will at all costs. “Will’s Ass Is Mine.”

Mike Boogie gets a game of Texas Holdem Poker started up. It was supposedly Janelle‘s first time playing Texas Holdem Poker and she kicked ass.

Chicken George was running out of the Big Brother house, through the back yard and belly flopping into the pool. It was actually pretty damn funny.

Janelle and Will are flirting it up big time in the pool. All a part of Dr. Will’s strategy, no doubt.

Erika tells Mike Boogie she wants to nominate Will and Janelle and Boogie is naturally trying to talk her out of it and get her to nominate Danielle.

Food Competition – Chicken George is jumping people to squeeze the juice of of their suits and Erika is riding Boogie like a cheap whore.

Results of the food competition:

Meat and Fish, Trampoline (whole house gets 1 day on slop as a result), Christmas in August (1 more day of slop), George gets a 1 week slop pass (Yay, food!), the entire household gets a 5 star dinner and they get alcohol (but give up the pool table).

Dr Will has a showmance with the backyard camera, too funny.

Will works on Erika to nominate Danielle, though Erika seems to buy into it she doesn’t nominate Danielle.

This weeks Big Brother All Stars nominee’s are: Janelle and Chicken George.

That’s all folks

TV Dilema

Wow, tonight sucks! Big Brother All Stars is on at 8:00pm PST tonight, and the 58th Annual Primetime Emmy‘s are on at the exact same time on a different channel. What am I going to do?!?!

I really need to get a VCR for events like this. I think I am going to have to watch Big Brother. I need to have a play by play on the show so I know what happens, what new alliances are being built or what alliances are blowing apart. As much as it pains me to say it, the Emmy‘s will be flipped to during Big Brother commericals and whatever I miss I’ll read on any one of a few hundred blogs tonight.

Damn TV people putting two things I want to watch on at the same time, the nerve!

Vancouver SPCA: Paws for a Cause… Walk for the Animals

The Vancouver SPCA Paws for a Cause… Walk for the Animals is an annual event held in Vancouver, along with numerous other locations through-out British Columbia. The event is a sponsorship run/walk with the goal of raising some much needed money for Vancouver SPCA Animal Shelters. All of the funds raised by these events go to the local shelters where each event is held, so if you sponsor in Vancouver, your money goes to a Vancouver SPCA Shelter, which is pretty cool.

When: Sunday, September 10th
Where: Vanier Park, Vancouver
Time: Site opens at 10am, Walk begins @ Noon

The Vancouver event is hosted by Randene Neill of Global News and will be a 2.5km run/walk beginning at Noon in Vanier Park. The minimum amount of pledges required to participate is $20. If you don’t get $20 in pledges, you can always pay a $20 registration fee to partake. And, of course, this isn’t just a walk, like every event that happens in Vancouver, there are always other things happening. Among the fairly long list of things happening at the event are: BC SPCA presentations, Dog Stars – Dog Agility Demonstration, Paws 2 Dance – a doggy dance event, Pet Look-a-Like contest and a Bowl Lickin’ doggy style pie eating contest.

If you can’t afford to pledge anyone, volunteer yourself and get out there. If you can’t do that, come on down and check out the events and give your support to the walkers and runners, and the puppies!, this is a great cause to get involved with anyway you can.

Music: 3,900 Songs on Randomize

So what happens when you sit in front of the computer, read blogs and work on your blog for a bit, all the while with Winamp on randomzie playing it’s heart away? Well, I don’t know what happens for you, but for me, this happened:

“I Love This Bar” by Toby Keith (I balme chrys for getting me into country, but this song is just plain fun.)
“Love Never Dies (part 1)” by Apoptygma Berzerk (Industrial music is always better with opera samples.)
“Black” by Pearl Jam (Throw a little Eddie Vedder into the mix.)
“Love Song” by The Cure (Can’t go wrong with Robert Smith, I not so secretly wish I had hair like his.)
“Stately Lover” by Lacuna Coil (Ooh, long time no listen, such a beautiful voice.)
“Thursday” by Jim Croche (Chrys’ music, hit the skip button :))
“12 Black Rainbows” by Type O Negative (Peter Steele is pretty, and he’s got a gorgeous voice. What? it’s true.)
“Gasoline” by Audioslave (so when you getting Soundgarden back together Chris? huh, I’m waiting.)

And that’s enough for now, I think it’s time to get to bed. I’ve been a bad bad blogger today, well, yesterday, technically, and didn’t manage to get anything posted. I hope google doesn’t get to mad at me. Here spider spider, I’ve got cookies!

Cheers

Celebrity Smack Puppy Needs Love

celebrity smack puppy needs loveSpicy over at Celebrity Smack is trying to help out a beautiful boxer puppy named ‘Dallas’. This poor guy had his leg hurt some how and his previous owner was to much of a dick to get it checked out and decided to dump him somewhere instead. So not only has Dallas’ leg healed all gimpy, he got abandoned too. Luckily the Lone Star Boxer Rescue picked him up and have been looking after him ever since. However, they don’t have a whole lot of money and do the work for the love of the animals. As such, they’re reaching out to animal lovers out there to make a donation and help to get Dallas all fixed up so he can run and play with his buddies again.

If you can spare anything or would like to donate anything, please check out Lone Star Boxer Rescue‘s website and drop some change in their jar.

I also apologize to everyone for making this kind of sob story post, but I’m an animal lover and I hate to see things like this happen, especially due to the lazyness and just utter lack of care and heart on the owners part. There are some terrible people out there, how they can just dump their animals in the middle of no where is beyond me, especially when they’re as cute as Dallas, look at that face! 🙂

Pete Doherty Drugs Kids

It looks like British rocker and Baby Shambles frontman Pete Doherty may have finally bought himself a one way ticket to jail, hopefully. This guy has been caught with drugs so many times it’s amazing that he’s yet to spend a single day in jail. Though this time, Pete has gone to far.

Pete Doherty was reportedly caught in the adolecent addiction unit of the rehab center he currently resides in giving cocaine to one of the teenagers that’s there to kick the addiction. Now, Pete has done some pretty screwed up things in his time, like drugging an already passed out person on camera and squirting a syringe full of his own blood at a reporter/cameraman during an interview, but this is just evil. He’s already thrown his life away and now he’s trying to destroy a teenagers life when they’re trying to get back on the right path again, good work man, real class act as always.
