Disabled Turtle Finds Romance After Getting Wheels

Arava the disabled turtle is using her new set of wheels to get around in more ways than one. Officials at the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo say the 10-year-old spurred tortoise has begun mating since being fitted with a custom skateboard to overcome paralysis of her hind legs.

The 55-pound turtle is unable to move herself forward with her front legs alone. So the zoo's staff built her a metal board with two wheels that can be strapped to her stomach.

Arava arrived in Jerusalem a few months ago from a petting zoo in southern Israel with the unexplained handicap, and found no reptile romance. Zoo curator Shmulik Yedvad says it's not that Arava has come out of her shell with her unique new wheelchair, but that a particularly amorous 10-year-old male has been after her.

Elevator up

I think my first album opened a lot of doors for me to push the freedom of speech to the limit.

Some Patriots are Hotter Than Others

Saving Private Ryan was probably the illest, sickest movie I've ever watched, and I didn't see anybody criticizing that one for violence.

Dear Eminem,

I want to solidify as an artist and show that as I grow as a person and make mistakes and learn from them, I'm going to grow artistically.

My Church, My Lord

Eminem taught me that as long as I have good intentions I don't have to be afraid of shit.



The truth is you don't know what is going to happen tomorrow. Life is a crazy ride, and nothing is guaranteed.

Cyber-Street Serenade

Happiness is walking around New York
drawing,
taking pictures
and listening to street musicians.



Personally, I just think rap music is the best thing out there, period. If you look at my deck in my car radio, you're always going to find a hip-hop tape; that's all I buy, that's all I live, that's all I listen to, that's all I love.

Elevator

Once again it's been over a month since I have written so I am back dating to make it seem like I have been writing the whole time...

When I play with GarageBand I make:




When will I grow up and start making real music!????
I need to write a good musical/artistic tribute to Marshall Mathers but I suck!

sigh.

Eminem Isn't The Only Person Who Doesn't Want To Get Married














And all of this controversy circles me
and it seems like the media immediately
points a finger at me...
So I point one back at 'em, but not the index or pinkie
or the ring or the thumb, it's the one you put up
when you don't give a fuck, when you won't just put up
with the bullshit they pull, cause they full of shit too
When a dude's gettin bullied and shoots up his school
and they blame it on Marilyn (on Marilyn).. and the heroin
Where were the parents at? And look where it's at
Middle America, now it's a tragedy
Now it's so sad to see, an upper class ci-ty
havin this happenin'.

Love Hate



I love/hate this image of Eminem.

It is so powerful and beautiful and brilliant and funny
and depressing and heartbreaking and alarming because there is often truth in jest.

Ramble About Rabbit



When I first saw 8 Mile I was annoyed by Eminem's rapper name, Rabbit. Then I remembered not to question the creative literary judgement of the great super multi-faceted artist Marshall Mathers.

Eminem is Prince Charming!

One of my favorite parts of the movie 8 Mile is when Rabbit is writing a song. He is sitting by the window in his trailer and he has his head phones on with his beat playing. He looks down at his little sister who is coloring and drawing and he realizes he too has to lose himself to his art...

MAY DAY Message for my Hero Marshall

Oh Eminem My Dear! I would start a church for you if it wasn't so whorish and lame to launch a religion in the information age.
