WARNING: If you have a heart condition, or you can’t see violence, or if you have any children around you, I recommend you don’t watch this video right now. I watched it, and being a native from that city, just hearing how the thugs speak on their aggresive slang, seeing his intentions and then their actions, my heart raced considerably when watching this, I managed to survive a couple of similar situations in Caracas and I’m glad I’m not there anymore to be at risk.
If you managed to get out of Venezuela recently, I hope this helps you get over the home sickness and feel lucky you’re out of that madness.
To all those that think Chavez government is awesome and a cool socialist, I recommend you go and spend 6 months in Caracas, and then we talk. For some reason people from Europe and some cab drivers in New York seem to think Chavez is awesome, fuck that.
And to say that this case is Chavez’s fault is probably crap, since murders on convenience stores happen all over the world, the problem with Venezuela, is that this situation is repeated way too many times a day since we don’t have a few hundred guys like that, we probably have tens of thousands of sons of bitches like those two bastards.
(If someone knows when this took place, please leave a comment, so I can update this post)
A lot of payphones on 59st (Colombus Circle) had this stickers which you can buy yourself at www.crimethinc.com.

Also, I must say I enjoyed Jumper, however it made me feel stupid when I had to walk out the theater and take a subway ride back home, let’s hope mankind can come up with a teleporting solution during the next millenium.
The Budos Band are an “Instrumental Staten-Island Afro-Soul” outfit recording on the Daptone Records label. The band has eleven members (up to thirteen members at times) who play instrumental music that is self-described as “Afro-Soul,” a term and sound which – in a recent interview – baritone saxaphone player Jared Tankel elucidates as, being drawn from Ethiopian music the band had been listening to that had a soul undercurrent to it, which the band then “sprinkled a little bit of sweet 60’s stuff on top” of.
Funk, Afro-beat, and soul influences can be heard in the Budos Band albums, both of which are Daptone Records releases recorded at the label’s own studio, Daptone’s House of Soul, in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Numerous other funk and soul outfits appear on the same label including: The Mighty Imperials, Sugarman 3, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, plus others.
You can buy their music on iTunes, or on regular CDs.
For the longest time I tried playing gears of war split screen (since like a year ago), and I was not able to intuitively try the stupid “Guest” profile that shows up when you press “Y” on the menu. I’d try having a Silver Xbox Live account join controller number 2.
Anyway, I’m just posting this as a reminder to myself for the future, hope it will serve some other people having he same problem:
1. Turn xbox + controllers on, with one of them linked to a single gold account
2.Main gears menu -> Versus -> Xbox Live Player Match
3 you will now notice, at the bottom of the screen “Y Guest Sign-in. Press Y on the 2nd controller, one not linked to xbox live
4. This will bring up a tab where you can select a sign in. Select “Guest”
5. Done, find or create your player match!
Now, does anyone know how to play Call of Duty 4, online, with split screen? I want to play with my friend at home, with other people on Xbox Live!
