Forget About That Corny Corner-Ribbon's Drivel! The Real Secret is HERE Indeed - not over there!

Saturday, November 26, 2005


If the few, the proud, the faithful regulars here, on the original TLB, have not noticed the proliferation of "brother blogs" for The Luminous Blog - then chances are no one has noticed! :(
Say it isn't so, "l.o.v.'s" - !!!
I point out to you, hence, that I await your comments (and even votes) on my OTHER luminous productions - namely the following (although there are yet MORE - in the works! Just wait and see - in the meantime, stop by the following; if only to enjoy the music on each! Internet Explorer allows for easy listening as well viewing the video that comes with it. Be informed that the media player is always to be found at the bottom of the page - thank you!).

Saint Or Sinner? Please VOTE!
Seek The Truth
Explore the possibility of the Good Life on The Luxurious Blog
Explore the Other Side of Life on The Lugubrious Blog
And expose, along with me, the nonsense around us on The Lunacy Blog!

All good things - but quite frankly, do not expect them all to be updated at the same frequency as TLB Original (Version 1.0...?) is!
I may change the music video on each, periodically... Alas, on that front, I cannot find the one video I really wanted - the one that has my vote as most hilarious ever, low-key levity though - always best that way! The Presidents of the United States' classic "Peaches" - I so wanted to have that one forevermore on one of my blogs! *Sigh* - Maybe one day, eh? (At least, you know what I want for Christmas, all - hint, hint! ;) *Blessings!*

Wishful thinking...

On top of hoping to see, one day soon, all of my petty adversaries behind bars "for life" as they used to say in the old "nWo" (...) circa 1997 - and I would not be against putting Dubya & co behind bars as well... For, verily, I'd pity any lawyer who would be foolish enough to plead their defense - even if it was Harvey Birdman himself! (pictured here; for those who never saw a Hanna Barbera cartoon with him)  Yes... One can dream, of course... But never mind our earthly semblance of justice; so-called justice, really! There will be no escaping the only Court That Counts - on Judgment Day! The crooked ones will not get sentences "for life" then - but sentences "for all of Eternity"! ... say AMEN!

Thanksgiving - for absolutely EVERYTHING

Let us give thanks, my fellow... ah... North Americans really! Let us give thanks on this day - and every single day! Let us give thanks for everything and anything that comes our way!
Thank You God for the food that we have.
Thank You God for the pang of hunger we may feel on occasion, that makes us appreciate it even more.
Thank You God for the joys of life, shared and unshared.
Thank You God for the anguish and pain - that make us relish the joys granted to us all the more...
Thank You God for adversity - for it hones us into being worthy of You.
Thank You God for friends and loved ones - for we cannot do without them.
Thank You God for the mercy You have on us (the mere fact that we are still all around shows that we do have a very Merciful God indeed).
Thank You God for fit punishment as well.
Thank You God for the beauty of your Creation.
Thank You God for the unsightliness of the world - it makes us accept change.
Thank You God for the vastness of the universe - it makes us humble.
Thank You God for the Mystery of Life.
Thank You God for the Mystery of Death.
Thank You God for all of the Inspiration that You Have Given us - in all that we do.
Thank You God for the talents bestowed upon each and every one of us.
Thank You God for the drive to make them fructify.
Thank You God for the ability to Love that You have Given us all as well.
Thank You God for Your Commandments particularly the Greatest One of all...
Thank You God for always being there.
Thank You God for the Promise that You Have Made to Your Faithful.

Luminous Luciano's Do's & Don'ts...!

Ok... mostly the don'ts!
DON'T be overtly critical, rude or demeaning - not without a lot of humor you don't!
DON'T be skeptical - you don't know everything!
DON'T be intolerant - annoying people are people too!
DON'T blame your country - blame the entire modern society that we have today!
DON'T use foul language - be creative; invent your own innocuous brand! An example (to get you started): "Yogurt Off, you piece of tofu!" *LOL*
DON'T allow yourself to fall into the depths of despair - rather, immerse yourself in the abyss of careless contentment! You may remain stuck in a rut - but you will be goofily happy about it the whole while through! Surely THAT is preferable to... ah... gloom and doom 24/7 - eh?
DON'T hate the sinner - he's a ninny, he knows no better! Despise with all the resentment you can muster his sin though - lawsuits are optional!
DON'T adopt either the "if you can't beat them, join them" unhealthy attitude - or the "if you can't beat them fair and square, win at all costs" insane "mad-ttitude"! The former is just plain unadvisable (and borderline faustian to boot) and the latter is the most unproductive of all - leading to kamikaze actions, quick exits from this world and thus non-existence in a hurry... If, on this day, you can't beat them in any way - fall back... retreat... and mount a sneak attack when they least expect it! You'll see them forfeit in no time at all! :)
DON'T let my luminous advice go unheeded now! *lol* And...
DON'T disagree with the author of this blog if you comment and wish to see your comments published! *LOL* (The dictator emoticon in my NeoBoard -a little further down below here, to your right- is definitely influencing me today...!!!).
All in good fun, folks! :) Blessings!

Ok... more of the same...

Only NOW... it is a warning against something far worse... Spam is bad enough in itself - but, just like cholesterol, there is GOOD SPAM... and REALLY BAD, MALICIOUS EVIL SPAM! The following was FORWARDED to me actually (by a benevolent soul - worry not)- but I have added my luminous commentary, like... ALL OVER IT! So... enjoy!

"As of November 21, 2005 2:20 PM Pacific Standard Time (PST, GMT -8:00), TrendLabs has declared a Medium Risk Virus Alert to control the spread of WORM_SOBER.AG. TrendLabs has received several infection reports indicating that this malware is spreading in the USA, Belgium, Canada, Brazil, and New Zealand. (Malware that travels more than we do - truly the most annoying kind there is...).

This memory-resident worm (a worm that will remember if you have been a good host - and especially if you were NOT) propagates by attaching a copy of itself to an email message, which it sends to target recipients using its own Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) engine. (What's next - it will morph into a car and run you down?). Since it's (you mean "its" - right?) email propagation does not require any user intervention, the user is often unaware that this worm is sending out email messages. (A gregarious worm - how novel. It likes people... not just other worms - eh? It e-mails - therefore It Is! It e-mails therefore It Lives!).

The email it sends out has the following details:

From: {Email address generated by this worm} (wow - it even has its own address book!).

Subject: (any of the following)
. hi,_ive_a_new_mail_address
. Mail delivery failed
. Registration Confirmation
. smtp mail failed
. Spam: Registration Confirmation
. Your Password
. Your IP was logged
. Paris_Hilton_&_Nicole_Richie (somehow we knew these two would be involved - somehow... in some way...!)
. You visit illegal websites (and you don't - right. Let he without sin cast the first stone... or send the first contaminated piece of electronic mail!).

Message body: (any of the following)
hey its me, my old address dont work at time. i dont know why?!
in the last days ive got some mails. i' think thaz your mails but im not sure!
plz read and check ...

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.
SMTP_Error []
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.
The full mail-text and header is attached

Account and Password Information are attached!

***** Email: {random}.com (WOW - now THAT is helpful in narrowing it down!).

Dear Sir/Madam,
we have logged your IP-address on more than 30 illegal Websites.
Please answer our questions!
The list of questions are attached.

Yours faithfully,
Steven Allison (it would have worked far better had it been Dana Scully e-mailing me... or Fox Mulder for you ladies! Lest you have creepy preferences and would want to receive an e-mail from the weirdo character Lance Henriksen played in 'Millennium'... THAT is up to you...!).

The attached .ZIP file contains the copy of this worm
using the following file name:

When executed, it displays a fake error message box in order to trick a user into thinking that the file did not properly execute.

This worm searches the process list of the affected system for mrt.exe, the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool process. If found, it terminates the said process thus making the system more vulnerable to malicious attacks.
(Wow - it's a Terminator Worm! What some nerds will think of... sheesh).

TrendLabs will be releasing the following EPS deliverables:

TMCM Outbreak Prevention Policy (Beta) - 187 (Released)
Official Pattern Release - 2.957.00 (ETA: 1.5 hrs)
Damage Cleanup Template - 678 (Being created)
Network Virus Wall - 10232 (Being created)

Fascinating reading material... hmm?
To think that this worm is SOBER - at least!
What kind of damage would it inflict, were it to be found drunk and driving on the cyber highway? I shudder at the thought of THAT... *brrrrrrrrrr*

"Evil-wishers are always around..."

... to spread rumors." Yeah... okay... so?
Upon opening up my email, I thought to myself that, surely, that tiny bit of infinite wisdom (in a convenient small dosage, easier to swallow and all) was but a prologue to a lengthy lecture rife with philosophical precepts meant to enlighten and broaden one's horizons... hmm?
Well... not exactly.
Because that catchy line was merely the brilliant preamble to... something that has no tangible continuity or link to it, actually...!
For the very next line is "All products for your health!" - one can smell a rat right away here - and not a small one at all either! Quite the sizeable mercantile rodent, in fact - as this is not meant to sell just one miracle pill, but obviously many! Look at the very next line after that... and learn how to sell YOUR crap as well!
"Tortured with health problems? You're one click away from healthy life!"
WOW... what an e-mail, hmm?
How dare my e-mail providers redirect these wonderfully crafted missives straight into my "bulk mail" (sometimes unsightly refered to as "junk mail" - yikes! The nerve of my condescending providers... eh?).
The spectacular sales-pitch continues with the very next line...
"An amazing variety of licensed meds at one big store! Click the link and make your first step to constant relief!"
Relief? Finally - we will find TRUE RELIEF? HOLY MOLEY! We have found some great treasure here - and IT has come straight to US too! The nirvana of narcotics (and other barbiturates) beckons! ALELUIA! We are not worthy! But, surely, our credit cards are...!
Think about it - they have promised us CONSTANT RELIEF - they will certainly deliver on those promises; otherwise they would not have promised it - right?!?
And this is SAFE RELIEF - for sure! The FDA would not allow this to happen if it wasn't 100% safe to the public - we know how much the FDA LOVES THE PUBLIC! And the public LOVES the FDA! It is, verily, the greatest love story of all... eh?
Thus, relief is here - and it is so safe there will not be any unexpected but quite foreseeable bad turns towards unsafety... such as when that deeply affected lady went to get her prescription meds in the safe confines of a Wal-Mart down south... but then, she decided to stick around Wal-Mart and shop a bit... alas, she did not wind up in any other department than the GUN RACK. Hence, she left Wal-Mart with a bag of Doritos... her medication... and a brand new gun! She left the Doritos untouched... she also did not touch her medication, unfortunately... she decided instead to pull the trigger on herself. Hurray for one-stop shopping... hmm? (N.B.: I blogged about this many months ago - right here on TLB.)
No such worries to be had here - as THIS meds shop is 100% safe - THEY sell NO guns!
Typo alert though - in their eagerness to sell out and to entice us to buy, they take liberties with the English language... as when they offer us "VERY SPECIAL PRI$ES"!
More suspicious of all though is the bit that follows, when they "guarantee great effect by official BBB verification and VISA approval"... ?!? What has VISA approval got to do with the supposed "great effect" these drugs might have or might not have on us...?!? Anyway... THAT is ANOTHER story...
Onwards to the menu!
Men's health is solidly taken care of here (lest it is endangered... because of simple urges and other trivial pursuits really? Hmm... the debate rages on ON THAT...) - with "V1agra Soft Tabs", "V1agra Professional" (for... the professional man in your life...), "C1al1s", "C1al1s Soft Tabs", "Generic V1agra" (for the generic man in your life) and... "Lev1tra" (which comes with levitation claims... but those are unfounded... surely...).
For general health, however, all they offer is... Human Growth Hormones. Better than nothing, eh?
Hangover Pills are always a must for any First Care package - furnish it with (and stock up for the holidays on) 100% Pure Okinawan Coral Calcium; All-Natural Magnesium Oxide; Soothenol; and Quick-Detox especially! Women's health offers the most creatively-named products with Nymphomax... Suregasm... Quick Bust and... science to the rescue with Pheromone perfume for women! For weight loss they have Meridia, Premium Diet Patch, Liposafe and Lipothin. The Anti-depressants menu includes such brand names as Xanax, the classic Valium, the ever-popular Prozac, the equally proficient Paxil, and the strong as perennial fourth place finisher Zoloft. Next we have... antibiotics such as Amoxicillin, Tetracyline, Keflex, Cipro and Zithromax, which round up the tantalizing offerings... (What - no Nitro? That is disappointing... Hmm... maybe WCW could be relaunched though... no longer with Nitro but with... Cipro as its main sponsor! "WCW MONDAY NIGHT CIPRO" - has an air to it, you must admit! Unless "Monday Night ZithroMax" would be even better...? Hmm... why not go with BOTH! In these days of epidemics, pandemics and assorted potential bacteriological weaponry out there... one can never have too many antibiotics in one's house! And since Dubya is not keen on providing every American with his fair share of vaccine... the average American will have to hope that a half-hazardly concocted cocktail of aspirin, acetaminophen, over-the-counter meds and cranberry juice will allow him to SURVIVE a possible pandemic! Add all the antibiotics you want to that mix now - why don't you! Nothing to lose - at this point...! Flintstones vitamins have your survival more at heart than Dubya does... Dubya and some so-called friends BOTH... but, once again, THAT is COMPLETELY, TOTALLY and SYSTEMATICALLY... another story!
Yes... I have spam...
And yes... I am feeling exceptionally sarcastic this Sunday!
