A Diagram of Life

How to spot a Republican

A joke I found.

A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below.

She shouted to him, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.

"She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be an Obama Democrat."

"I am," replied the man. "How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct. But I have no idea what to do with your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."

The man smiled and responded, "You must be a Republican."

"I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?"

"Well," said the man, "you don't know where you are or where you are going. You've risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You're in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now it's my fault."

I had no idea...

Is your cat plotting to kill you?

Miley Cyrus is High as a mother!!

Ok, dancing around all slutty in a bird costume is one thing, but this is CRAZY!! Miley Cyrus, the Disney Channel superstar is smoking out of a bong in this video, and let me tell you, she is a lightweight. Apparently she isn't actually smoking weed, she's smoking something called "salvia" which is a natural drug that is legal in California. But whether it's the real deal or not... Billy Ray is not happy!! You can see his twitter response to this hilarity by clicking >>>>>>HERE<<<<<<<

Check out the video and have yourself a nice laugh watching Miley trip balls on fake weed. XD

The worst news article EVER

Albertville man charged with assault claims to be vampire - WAFF.com: North Alabama News, Radar, Weather, Sports and Jobs-

Even tho the material covered in this article is very amusing, it is quite easily the worst news article I have ever read. The quotes are disgusting.... no one is going to take Det. Hooks seriously anymore after reading this... But that's not the worst part. The grammar, in and outside the quotes, is just atrocious. Commas and periods EVERWHERE!!! Now i'm no master journalist or anything, I've only taken a few classes at school.... but there's so many obvious mistakes and ways to fix this article to make it sound intelligent. Good grammar is a handy tool in life ;)

New Favorite Video!

Bass Down Low by The Cataracts.



And yeah that's the official video, the one on their myspace page. I love it. It really looks like just a bunch of kids dancing around in front of a camera and actin a fool, but they make me want to dance around with them. It looks fun.

They have another video with better quality and it's actually very cool. [Club Love<-- click here to see it!]
It's the Cataracts on a treasure hunt to find this awesome club.

Sadly I could not find Bass Down Low at all on itunes... so the search for new music to spend my itunes points on continues...

New Fish

I made a video of the new fishes in my tank. There's an algae eater (because clearly the tank needs someone to trim the weeds) named Hank, two ghost tetra's named yen and yang, and Billie's two big white fish's named Sheldon and Lenard. They adjusted to the tank very quickly and they seem happy. Plus the old fish Henry, Poseidon, and Tweedledee seem a lot more happy and active with new friends. I'm very pleased with this outcome :)

How to feed the World.

This was really interesting. I didn't know the world's food market worked this way. Everyone should take this video's advice and try to eat more grains and such and less meat. I love my meat but I'll try to contain myself for Africa's sake

My Talent

Today I turned in my third new story for this semester. As you know if you've been reading my blog, my second story made it into the school paper in September. Well i sat up all night trying to write this story and I couldn't come up with anything... not more than one sentence. So I slept on it.

When I woke up this morning I gathered up all my information and set to work. Well I did it!! I took it to my journalism teacher around 3pm, an hour before it was due, and she loved it! She said it was very well written and that I have a real talent for doing this! I couldn't believe she said that! It really made my day.

So I wanted to share with you the story. In no way is the information exciting... But I am proud of it. I'm pretty sure I will make it into the paper again, and maybe this time on the front page! ;)

AAUP Invites Union Members to Speak for Improving Campus Working Conditions
10/26/2010
BY: DUSTIN SMITH
      The American Association of University Professors has invited two United Campus Worker organizers from Middle Tennessee State University to speak at Tech this Monday.
      The presentation is entitled “Take this Job and Love It.”  Karly Safar, United Campus Workers organizer at the University of Tennessee, will present a brief history of the UCW, a union of close to 1,200 employees in public higher education across the state of Tennessee, highlight some of the victories the union has won, and also discuss what difficulties they will face in Summer 2011 when the stimulus funding runs out and the unions campaign goals for the upcoming year.
      “For the past year I have been working full-time for the union.” said Safar. “We first got started at UT-Knoxville 10 years ago when campus workers, students, and community members organized to fight for a living wage, an hourly wage that allows one to live decently and take care of a family while working full-time.”
      The living wage is calculated based on the actual cost of living factors in one’s particular city. From this campaign a union was formed, and has since spread to other campuses across Tennessee. UCW ensures that workers are paid decent wages and are guaranteed basic rights and respect at work.
“A focus of our work over the past two years of the economic recession has been to fight for funding for higher education to prevent layoffs and severe budget cuts that would hurt not only students and employees, but also the greater community and the state’s economy as a whole.” said Safar.
Rachel Kirk, MTSU UCW legislative committee chair, AAUP member, and MTSU librarian, will be addressing why it is important to engage in the political process, UCW’s support for and endorsement of pro-worker and pro-education candidates running for state house and senate seats, and some about their past fights and campaigns.
      “We are inviting faculty, staff, and students because the event addresses changes in higher education being made by the state legislature that increasingly affects us all with little consideration being given to us,” said Josephine McQuail, professor of English and Tech chapter AAUP president. “Basically it is important for the campus community – all members of the campus community - to come together and develop a collective voice to have input in these decisions which affect us all. We need to be proactive not reactive!”
      AAUP’s purpose, according to their website (www.aaup.org), is to advance academic freedom and shared governance, to define fundamental professional values and standards for higher education, and to ensure higher education’s contribution to the common good. “The AAUP is concerned particularly in today’s climate to preserve tenure,” said McQuail.
      “Take This Job and Love It” will take place in Henderson Hall 205 from 3 to 5:50 p.m. and is sponsored by the Tech chapter of the AAUP, the sociology and political science department, and the journalism department.


 Karly Safar is pictured second from the right protesting budget cuts in 2009.

I don't know why the last paragraph came out all funny like that. I can't figure out how to change it so it will just have to do. Anyway there is my story. If it's in the paper on Friday I will post a link. 

Adios!!

Ferrets are into ps3

funny video game photos - Ferrets Love Only The Finest
see more Bob's House of Video Games

I have ferrets so this makes me laugh. Glad that's not my ps3, though.Haha

Cruel Neighbors.



I've got to say... what a complete bitch!! How could anyone treat a poor little girl and her family that way! There's a big difference between celebrating Halloween and taunting a poor little girl who might not be living much longer. The decorations and the coffin are one thing but I just can not believe that woman put those things on facebook!! This just blows my mind that someone can be so cruel... I don't even know what else to say.... poor girl.

Horror Movie Night!!!

Tonight I am treating myself to a Horror Movie Marathon!!!! Let's take a look at the list and have a little movie review time shall we?


 2 out of 5 stars 
One of the 8 Movies to Die For, which gave me hope for this movie. But I was disappointed. It was nice and bloody (which is the way I like um!) but it was very boring. The story is about three buddies from Texas who decide to go to Mexico where they can be free to do whatever the hell they want. I should have known right then that it was going to be bad. There they get mixed up with some kind of cult where people are sacrificed to some god. It never explained what the cult is about exactly, and the story was kinda choppy. Overall it sucked. I didn't even finish it. Next!

3 out of 5 stars
A classic horror movie. I've known about this movie for a long time and have heard the legend about saying Candyman in the mirror five times, but never got the chance to watch it. I remember trying to gather up the guts to say it myself in the bathroom. I think I did it once, and I'm still alive today! Or maybe that was Bloody Mary...anyway. Candyman is a different kind of supernatural killer. Instead he uses the main character, Helen to kill his victims. This of course gets Helen in quite a bit of trouble. The story is good, though I didn't understand some elements of it. Also, it never explains how Candyman got his name, or why he appears after saying his name 5 times in the mirror. The movie had a few holes in it but it wasn't bad overall. 

4 out of 5 stars
This one was very interesting. The story revolved around Heather who, in the movie, played Nancy in the original Nightmare on Elm street. Freddy comes alive through the movies which aren't really movies but Heather's life? I dunno. The whole movie/real life thing confused me. Otherwise the movie was pretty good. It wasn't too cheesy and it had good suspenseful moments. The only thing I really didn't like was Freddy's makeup. It looked totally fake and plastic. I don't know why they changed it from the original. Maybe because this is a different Freddy. The real Freddy? I don't know! The only other Freddy movies I have seen are the original and the newest 2010 version. Maybe if I had seen the others in between I would understand more.

That's the end of my horror movie night. It's late and bed time for me! 
Adios friends!

Comments! I need Comments!! + A Tutorial

Hey everyone,

I know that people are reading my blog (slowly but surely) because my counter keeps going up. But there are next to NO COMMENTS  on my posts. In order for this blog to be successful for me I NEED MY READERS' INPUT! Please comment on my posts if you think it's funny, think it sucks, want to tell me to shut the fuck up. I don't care what you say but I need responses for this blog to become noticed. If some random internet surfer comes across my blog, he/she is most likely going to glance through the first few posts, notice that no one commented on anything, assume the blog sucks and that no one is reading it, then surf on his merry way. I really don't want that to happen :(

So I think one of the reasons no one is commenting is because you are unfamiliar with this site and don't know how to work it. Well I am here to fix that! I will give you a short tutorial of what everything is and how to comment.

If you look at the top of the page you will see the title of my wonderful blog "The Infamous Mr. Smith," that's me! If at any time you want to return to the main page of the blog click on the blog title and it will you bring you right back. Below the title is a description of the blog, then the blog Logo, which I made myself  ^_^ (please hold your applause)

Now please turn your attention to the right of the page. Hey! There's my face! If you click there it will take you to my profile where you will learn a few things about me... but just a few. ;) Below that is the counter, here you can see how many visits I have accumulated. Every time someone is directed to the front page, the counter goes up by one. WOOPEE! That's good! Next is My Reading Material. These are the blogs that I keep up with and read. They are all very good and some of them are written by people I know so check them out as well =D. Going down you will see everyone that follows my blog (hopefully this list will start growing soon with your help) , the search bar if you want to search for anything I have blogged about, then my blog archive which keeps all my blogs nice and orderly for your convenience. :) Also you can go through the posts in order by clicking the "older Posts" link at the bottom of each page

Now comes the FUN PART!!! If you look below this post you will see a few different ways to give input on my posts. First is the time the post was published, and how many comments it has. This is where you come in. If you click on the comments, YOU CAN EVEN LEAVE A COMMENT YOURSELF! COOL! And the best part about this is you don't have to have a blogger account to comment!! Anyone with these types of accounts can comment: Google (gmail), LiveJournal, WordPress, TypePad, AIM, and OpenID. I think you can even comment with a twitter account. Of all these different accounts you guys have to have at least one of these. So please use them and talk to me! This blog depends on you just as much as me! Without me there would be no blog, but without YOU my words are absolutely worthless.

Now back to business. Beside the comments link is a picture of an envelope with an arrow. With this you can email any post to your friends! If you like one of my posts, please send it to your friends. Spread the word! I need as much publicity as possible. Last but not least is the reaction below that. Here you can tick which ever reaction you have to the post. you do not even have to have an account to use these. Anyone who looks at my blog can tick these, and you can tick them in any combination you wish.

Ok, there is your lesson for today kiddos. I appreciate any and everything you guys do for me and this blog. I am very proud of it and I want it to succeed. In the long run it's going to help me with my career in Journalism, but not without your help!!

That's it for now loyal readers! I love each and every one of you! Especially so if you leave me comments ;) jk! ADIOS!
