that ol HIV test

Negative on HIV and HEP C.........whewww

well in the ongoing mystery bump saga, had to do some "blood work" which means an hiv /hep c test last week and had to wait a whole week to get results to schedule a surgery for my bumpie bump........

that was a long week, even doe i had an HIV test 3 years ago and i been with steady girlfriends ya just never know, so all good

had to stop the doc after i got the results to let out a week long "whewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww" then we could continue.......

i have been having some rather sharp ear pain, so since i was down there, i asked about it, a new doc did an ear exam and said it looked weird, another resident came in and said that the bump didnt feel right, like not a tumor even doe, the bioposy said it was that benign thingie labobbie........

so we tring some new shit...........augmentine........a super hard core peniclin derivitive and some steroids to see if it clears up in 2 weeks that would be the best scenerio...........after one pill doe iam starting to feel reduction.......thats good, this was my 10th trip to ucla harbor medical center.

i had looked this up, and what they think it might be is a super infection or possibly a partoid gland abcess......keep your fingers crossed and call jebus for me...........

Dash and his mystery bump


so i havnt been speaking on this much, but i have had a bit of a medical issue as of late..........

about a year and half ago, i started having pain in my right jaw....inability to open my mouth and talk shit all the way, headaches bla bla lifes tough get a helment......right

well, i went to a couple urgent cares, a couple denists and finally an oral surgeon, who hipped me that i should see an ENT.........

well sounds great, but i dont have fucking insurance thanks to this wonderful country and its ass healthcare system..........

but i called up the ENT that was refered to me at UCLA SM.......and they said just to see dude was 1400 bucks.........i cant and will not afford i said to the lady "what would you do if you didnt have insurance".........

she said go to UCLA MEDICAL CENTER torrance...........

Now, i been to country facilities when i was shot and basically it wasnt the best experience ever, fucking graff in the elevators, handcuffed inmates in the next bed you get the picture.

but i was in pain so i went to the urgent care and they gave me a referal to the dudes at the ENT dept.......(this is key cause the oral surgeon that o.g went to would have taken 2 months), with the referal from urgent care i was in 1 week.........

now the interesting part.........

the area that was giving me pain was whats called the parotid gland.......a big fucking gland that produces saliva and does a bunch of other shit i guess, but it was acting the fuck up...........

possible causes for my symtopms sorta leaned to what they call a stone blocking the duct.........basically a calcified stone get stuck in the bowling alley to your mouth and all kinda bad shit happens

next visit they felt some hard mass at the edge of my jaw by the ear..........that aint so good.........any mass could be a grip of shit, and none of it good.........could be a abcess could be cancerous tumor could be just a tumor..........hahaha arnold pops into my head of course "its not a tumor"..........hahhhahah

anyways, UCLA ENT fucking rocks..........they kinda fucked up on giving me 3 CT scans in a row when they should have been doing the MRI's but whatever..........finally got the a big ass trailor btw

had to come back for results and sure enough...............4 cm tumor of the parotid gland...........thats not so hot..........but even doe iam having pain they wanted to see what it was, only way to do that.............FNA..........CT guided fine needle aspiration..........yep its gonna suck as bad as it sounds ladies.......

went in, iam on like week 6 by now............but whatever got the FNA and that shit hurt like a mother fucker..........even with the dope and extra dope and signing waivers for even more dope, i still felt it.........

basically what they do is put a grid on your face mark it with a pen, then do the CT scan, then they start puting this "FINE" needle into your face slowly stopping to reguide by doing more CT images........takes about 30 out pokie pokie and then yoru done..........

NOW this part sucks.........waiting for the results.........and yall know me, i do research, and there is a bunch of shit it can be........15 kinda tumors, abcesses, this that the other pathalogy bla bla bla.........its a brain fuck via wiki.........

But whatever the brain is a powerful thing and i kinda resigned myself to expect the worst, cause with the pain the prognosis, didnt look that hot, all the shit i read said you got pain you kind fucked...........and of course the life expendency is maybe 20 years out...........not really enough for the kid, i expect to live to 1000.........but hey thats life get a helment........right

well thursday i went in and its pleomorphic adenomas.........the most common form of benign tumor like 84 percent of em.........whooooooooo.......for now.........the FNA aint 100 percent and its a big ass tumor so ya know grabbing cells even from different levels is dicey..........they told me really there is no wayto know until they yank the lil fuck out, which is exactly what i been reading........fucking wiki

so now its oct 24, and i had to do some blood work to make shure i aint go the koodies and i go into get results of that and set a date for a the "
excision"......another word for take the fucker out of there via surgery..........

so it is what it is....but i wanted to put this up cause , doing my reserach nobody was really putting it down to what the experinece was "really like".........

its a nail biting scary fuck fest that takes some balls to get thru, but thanks to Fran, my boy TOM and the super pro cats at UCLA medical center torance ENT.......iam gonna pull it.........

the surgery is go in, get put out, they have to take the whole fucking parotid gland out with the tumor and watch the facial nervers that run thru the shit and which have been getting stretched causing the kid some serious fuck you pain.........then spend the night and go home to probably some facial weaknesss and maybe some sly stallone type shit for a week or two.............

Bad things bout the surgery which aint so hot............doc told me there is a chance that the facial nerve can get clipped or strtched out bad enough to keep my right eye permantly open for a while, i was fucking with em and saying "yea whatever i'll just put some duct tape on that shit".......and to my surprise "yea acutally thats exactly what you'll do" fuckkkkkkkkkkkkhahahhah.........

crazy shit ............

anyway that was long as fuck...........but thats what it is..............
be glad it aint your ass.........but hey thats the point of this blog, somebody always got it worst than you and you always got it worst than the next cat right...........

anyway part 2..........peace

no fucking god fridays..........

and now a weekly installation of "natural history".........
understanding history and the natural world via youtube..........very interesting

Dash gives Obama Endorsement today

Los Angeles, October 21st, 2008: 12:20 pm PT 
Los Angeles Times LLC. 

Famed Graffiti Artist, Dash 2000 has thrown his sizable support behind the Obama campaign today, shoring up a long and impressive list of proponents this week. 

The move comes as a slight suprise as the artist is known for his anti religious views, but in quote this morning the graffiti veteran pioneer said this "bush fucked it up so bad i cant vote for another white man". 

In a move reminscent of the collaboration between the weatherman underground and the black panther party the artist sporting a black power comb in his clearly dischevled hair, made several controversial statements at his press conference, including "kill whitey in 08" and "power to the poor people, ohhh and kill whitey" 

Pundits are still out on whether the endorsement will help or hinder the obama campaign to which Mr 2000 said "kill the white media" over a gas powered bull horn on the corner of 5 th and Main street in downtown los angeles.

energy tech.........

So i been saying this for quite some time, but i heard Tom Friedman echoing the sentiment this week.

The U.S needs to invest in Energy Tech, right now. the economics / environmental and political pitfalls of oil are a fucking disaster, we need to put our gross national brainpower in gear and be the world leader in this arena.

The fact is dash doesn't have any kids, but the rest of you keep on popping em out, increasing the demand for energy, and with the emerging "middle class" in up and coming countries like china, the demand will be even greater.

With the incredible brain power and large concentration of science here, we should be able to make this a booming industry, and by proxy save the fucking earth well save it for us, 1/4 of the mammals will be gone in 25 years, but i digress.

Wind, tidal, solar power are and have been the next big things, and once we make them economically feasible here as opposed to oil and coal, we can export the technology elsewhere.

We don't make anything else here worth a shit, well with the exception of pharmaceuticals, but i think if we all get off the zanax this could be the pivot point for the economy.

course what do i know, iam just some lowely graffiti writer.

fuck joe six pack

One of the most frustrating things about living in this country is the over all dumbness of the majority, ignorance and the acceptance of the being uniformed has crippled the evolution of the united states. In the latest vice presidential debates it was obvious that palin was playing to the class division of the average joe six pack and the coastal elites. I was quite amazed at how stupid this was, republicans have been notorious for panning to the richest percentage of society and now they are down they are going after the religious / unaware "average American. I dont blame the politicians i dont blame palin or john mccain, i blame the average American that can not see whats happening and are so stupid that they believe the hype and half assed propaganda without question or research.

Is that mean, am i being a snob or an elitist for questioning "joe six packs"intelligence, no iam being realistic. In other countries people strive to be intellectuals, strive to be informed, such is not the case here.

To be 100 iam fucking sick of it, iam sick of having to deal with ignorant uninformed wing nuts that regurgitated un original propaganda and get mad at me for proving them wrong, because i actually do my research.

Its not my fault you have 5 kids and you dont have time to research the issues, its not my fault you don't have the mental capability to fathom the complex issues of the American government. You didnt take civics, or sociology or American history in school, boo hooo, if your not informed get informed, if you don't have the time, do not engage me in a conversation, stay home on election day and stay quiet, because "smart" is in again, and we will no longer coddle ignorance.

obama got it

man this cat is just fucking smooth.............

dash's view on gay marriage and prop 8


why the fuck is California even debating this..........dont we have enough problems, i.e budget, are we just tring to deflecting the issue. Gay people are going thru the same prejudice issues as black people in the 60's minus the water hoses and German Shepard's. leave these people the fuck is such a weird exercise as it is, why the fuck are we tring to mandate personal opinion into law................

personally, as a straight cat, i find gay man sex, totally repulsive, but what the fuck does my opinion have to do with peoples rights................nothing, thats what, i dont like sushi either, iam not tring to outlaw the shit.

gay people are people and have as many rights as everyone else, stop fucking with em............

the bible and Leviticus are complete bullshit, this is an outdated view and should not affect the happiness of people in 2008...........straight up...........

the gay people i know laugh this issue off, cause realistically they dont actually wanna get married, its more of lesbo / chick thing anyway........but that dont mean the right should be taken away by the christian coalition.

Dash's view on the "war on terror"......

Man oh bad can we possibly fuck this up......iam reminded of our other half hearted attempts.....
the war on drugs
the war on crime
the war on illegal immigration
the war on underage sex
the war on poverty
the war on obestity

We just can not leave well enough alone.....we constantly have to be fucking with the brown people, we always have to be saving them from themselves.....

i just got done reading a paper by the Rand Corporation (if you dont know who they are basically they are a think tank group here in santa monica, very smart) called "Defeating Terrorist Groups", which was presented to the house armed services committee back on sept 19th 2008.....

In the study it basically entails what we have all been thinking, we just dont know what the fuck we are doing over there, the paper states "the United States cannot continue conducting an effective counter-terrorism campaign against al Qa’ida without understanding how terrorist groups end."  there is a lot more of course but the over all theme was summerized to basically this......The U.S. military] should generally resist being drawn into combat operations in Muslim countries where its presence is likely to increase terrorist recruitment." and recommended, "ending the notion of a 'war' on terrorism" and "Moving away from military references would indicate that there was no battlefield solution to countering terrorism." In conclusion the RAND study advised: "By far the most effective strategy against religious groups has been the use of local police and intelligence services, which were responsible for the end of 73 percent of [terrorist] groups since 1968."

People dont like being invaded or having wars and or missle thrown at em.  the middle east iraq / afgantastan are fucked up places with corrupt governments just like ours and have been for quite some time.  Civil war, genocide and oppression are ways of life and us drop lifting in haliburton and costco's aint gonna change that.  Its not 100 percent clear that they want democracy, if you look up iraq, lots of shit has been tried and not a whole hellav a lot of it has worked as it pertains to government.

We need to stay out of that part of the world, we will only get more entangled into bitter infighting and religious zeolotry.  

Everytime we bomb a suspected al-Qaeda hot spot and end up killing everyone in a hospital, the religious radicals recruit more people that just might have lost there son/daughter mom and or dad in the "collaridal damage".

i having a real hard time standing by and watching these fucking religious rednecks (see bush, christian coalition) fuck this country off, by being the drunk asshole at the party that makes the chicks leave cause they couldn't handle they high.

what not to do on your vacation in tokyo

hollllllllllllly fuck, this cat is just wild style, the pic speaks volumes but here is the official press

TOKYO (Reuters) - A bald, naked man who said he was a British tourist went swimming in the moat of Japan's Imperial Palace on Tuesday, climbing the palace wall, throwing rocks and splashing water at police before being taken into custody.

Television footage showed the tall man getting out of the water at one point, chasing police with a rock and a plastic construction site pole.

He then went back to the murky water and swam across to the other side of the moat, climbing up the 8-metre (9-yard) stone wall of the palace.

He was caught by two policemen, after a chase media said lasted for an hour and a half.

"I've never heard of anyone doing such a thing," an unidentified man at the scene told TV Tokyo. "He must be a bit crazy."

Television showed passers-by gathering around the moat and watching the chase, giggling and taking photos on mobile phones.

Police said it was unclear what his motives were, although media said he had dropped a bag in the water.

The man, around 40 years old, first said he was Spanish but later said he was a Briton living in Spain, police said.

"We are checking on his mental condition now," a police spokesman said. The man was later released.

The palace, in the heart of Tokyo and home to Japan's emperor and empress, is surrounded by 12 moats running 7 km (4 miles) in all.

Tourists can walk freely around the periphery of the palace and go inside on a tour, but in general are not allowed to step within the premises of the 115 hectare (284 acre) palace grounds.

gtfooh..........3 trillion on the war in iraq

ya know i was kinda bored today after looking up my women bashing material so i decided i was still pissed off, so i decided i was going to look up what the iraq war was costing us..........3 fucking trillion so far.........dont know if that number is doable in your head, but thats a lot of quap........3 trillion .......or

$3 billion a week, or $12 billion a month. The US has siphoned some $500 billion taxpayer dollars into Iraq, for a war that was supposed to be "sharp" and brief.

WTF are we actually getting out of this........what is it doing for us, security wise, cost of oil wise, anything wise.............

seems like we shoot the fuck out of brown people and make sub contractors rich, this country is falling apart and there isnt even any debate on it

Italy here i come.........yikes

american women suck

hahhaa, bit of a non partisan rant here, saw this on the intraweb and well this kinda hits it on the proverbial head......i have given american women a chance, i have dated the spectrum of diversity and ethnicity and i have finally come to a universally accepted realization, american women suck, and i for one am declaring my relationship abstinence, i just dont think the whole thing is worth the trouble.....

Enjoy fellow he man women hater alumni......

Top Ten Reasons Why American Women Suck

1) Selfish - to the point where they don't know the difference between love of self and plain downright greed--and drilled into believing that whatever happens is the fault of whatever man is in their life because of the feminist crud drilled into them by the cadre of asexual closet cases called "therapists" who appear on "Ricki", "Oprah" or other such electronic drivel

2) Deluded - into thinking they "deserve" a rich, model-handsome husband who will "take them away from all of this"--whatever the "this" might be--and leading to resentment when they discover that the universe does NOT revolve around them

3) Angry - ALL the damn time about things which are so far out of their control as to be nonsensical--and constantly wanting to "discuss" this mind numbing drivel ad nauseam

4) Psychotic - multiple personalities in the same woman - as "Nomad" put it in the "Star Trek" episode: "Woman...a mass of inconsistencies...", and also when the feminist voices in their heads start with the regrets and victim acculturation

5) Worthless - anything that does not immediately resolve itself in her favor or to her benefit is meaningless to her, especially husband and family

6) Lazy - drilled into their head that they "deserve" a maid, nanny and personal slave to take care of every detail - and that their husband/boyfriend is REQUIRED to cater to their each and every mindless whim

7) Resentful - especially of other women who have things that they do not, in material, spiritual and esoteric senses

8) Greedy - to them, "housekeeping" means getting the house in the divorce (thanks to Zsa Zsa for that immortal line) and sucking the guy for every last cent, even if they had nothing to do with the building of the nest egg

9) Mindless - constant, irritating, idle prattle about topics they read about in some women's magazine and then become instant experts--particularly pop psychology and the latest crap they see on "Oprah" or "Ricki"

10) Vain - believing that they are irresistible to everything in pants and therefore are allowed to behave sluttish and without any honor.

holy shit (palin gets exrocism)

well, another strike against the crazy lady as i was browsing the latest realtime with bill maher today.

there is actually a grainie obviously vhs shot video of palin obviously going through an exorcism.

This is super spooky stuff, and as mr Maher clearly pointed out, if Obama were to have a video surface of him getting exercised in a church the election would be over today.

Of course wacked out christians run this country, lets face it, this will get explained away and shuffled to the background, with a statement more than likely in the neighborhood of "lets stick to the issues"

That 16 percent of us that dont believe in jebus are obviously very worried and appaled of the state of well church and state.


go to 4:00 if your not a Maher fan

myspace is mine

so i had to put my myspace to private recently.
i am not doing anything you would consider illegal or "bad", but i have realized that my privacy is important to me, which is a contradiction of sorts considering iam a public entity but i have gotten unwanted attention as of late and as i will become more public my privacy or public to friends status is more important than ever. Iam not doing what i do publicly for just "everyone" its a selected market, for people that can appreciate my twisted little head, so i think we shall keep it slightly underground for now. Also for the prying eyes that think dash is a bad man, keep guessing.........

smoking Kurt Colbain's ashes

Ok this is a weird one, and for the record i dont know how she acquired the ashes, but its definitely interesting in concept, and as far as open installation / art pranks, its a winner.  Iam generally not a fan of female artists, but iam fairly impressed with this one....

Artist Natascha Stellmach wants a bit of Cobain’s spirit as well because she’s planning on smoking his ashes. 
Ok, try not to choke on your coffee, yes it’s true: Award winning Berlin based artist Natascha Stellmach will smoke the singer’s ashes as part of her latest exhibition, Set Me Free. 
Stellmach has acquired the ashes of Nirvana frontman, Kurt Cobain, and has transformed the grunge icon’s remains into an installation investigating suicide and the power of desecration.
