Time to start updating livejournal again. New journal: curiouslyadrift.

I doubt even half of you will want to continue reading my shit, but I just thought I'd let you know. I'm trying to be cool, so it's friends only. Let me know if you want to be added.

Oh, and to all of you who, for whatever reason, weren't sure, I am not gay. Just thought I'd clear that up.

Timeline - A timeline I made for the intellectually-based, reserved, completely nonscene community madradhair. What can I say - there are a lot of cute girls there.

I was just watching the local news channel as the reporters asked people just before midnight what their New Year's resolutions are.

Reporter: And you, what is yours?
Trashy-looking white guy with gold teeth: TO SMOKE SOME MORE DOPE!!! YEAH! SMOKE DOPE ALL DAY LONGGG! YEAHHHHHHH!!!
Reporter: You heard it - to quit smoking. That's a great resolution! And how about you...

Awesome. And talk about a good recovery.
(Alright, it probably wasn't that funny)

New Year's Eve doesn't really mean much to me. But watching everyone proceed to kiss right at midnight is sort of disconcerting. :/

Of course, knowing that those same people will be stuck there and forced to listen to shitty music for at least 6 hours afterward does make me feel a little better...

JFK Reloaded

Made by a British company, mind you. In my opinion, there's far worse in the gaming industry than this crap, but is this one really necessary? Talk about trying to make a cheap buck. Crap storyline, creativity, graphics... wait, it's educational, you say? Ah, how could I have overlooked that? Well, in that case, educate our children! I call for this game to be installed on each and every school computer in the country! What better way to learn about our presidential history in a time like this than through a game in which you can repeatedly assassinate the president?

Pray thee, sell on!

Out of curiousity, what's the big fuckin' deal with Scott Peterson? Is it just one of those things people talk about because they have nothing intelligible to speak of? Because, psst, not only is there a war going on, but there's a lot of unreported shit that's a lot more important than some guy who may have killed his wife. America, I hate to break it to you, but somebody's gotta - HE'S NOT THE ONLY PERSON IN OUR COUNTRY TO COMMIT A CRIME. O.J. having been on the front page was bearable; that shit was funny. But there's nothing special about this Scott guy - his name isn't even memorable. Honestly, keep your soap operas off the already-shitty cable news channels.

Also, I'm actually sort of perturbed that the verdict is in, because now you morons are going to find some other irritatingly imbecilic subject to become immersed in all over again.

Another thing: Bush has given the least amount of speeches and press conferences of any president in history, and it still sounds like every word he says has been said before. It doesn't matter what the topic is - he uses the same adjectives every god damned time. I was going to give him a second chance, but he BLEW IT already by not learning even a handful of new words.

I can't respect a man who uses the word "courageous" to describe troops, gynecologists, and surviving a choking incident; the word "ruthless" to describe all of his enemies, the weather, and his Halloween outing; and who uses the word "sacrifice" as often as he does, because it's creepy and kind of scary when a Christian uses it that much.

John Ashcroft in his resignation letter: "The objective of securing the safety of Americans from crime and terror has been achieved."

That's awesome and all, but uhh... what the fuck was the whole presidential campaign debate discussing who would protect our country from terrorists best about, then? Oh, I get it, Bush and Ashcroft spent the 7 days proceeding the election working really hard and accomplished safety in that time. Cool.

When having to go somewhere,
a brisk walk in the bitter cold with a chilly breeze at your face is nice;
a cup full of hot chocolate afterward is nicer;
but being able to smell your own farts, while walking and despite the wind, is nicest.

WASHINGTON - "Scientists say changes in the earth's climate from human influences are occurring particularly intensely in the Arctic region, evidenced by widespread melting of glaciers, thinning sea ice and rising permafrost temperatures."

... "Pointing to the report as a clear signal that global warming is real, Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Joe Lieberman, D-Conn., said Monday the "dire consequences" of warming in the Arctic underscore the need for their proposal to require U.S. cuts in emissions of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping greenhouse gases. President Bush has rejected that approach."

Warming at twice the speed as the rest of the world; ocean levels rising up to three feet in the next 100 years; temperatures rising 13 degrees. But who cares, our air-conditioned SUVs will be able to drive underwater by then!

And sure, those Inuit people will all die, as will the bears, seals, fish, etc., but we'll have more accessible trade routes! Not that we need to worry, of course: despite this 1200-page report, global warming is still a conspiracy theory of the left.

Brainwashed Bushite: "OMG Bush won by a landslide. America loves Bush, liberals are just stupid."
Liberal: "You're... you're kidding, right?"

See? I didn't write the political entry. None of that from me. No siree...

I think I (along with a lot of other people) am going to take a break from the political posts until I either figure out how to initiate change or decide I might as well give up, make myself comfortable and enjoy the ride. But for now, me worrying about that shit isn't going to do America any good if no one else gives a fuck. So, for all of you who don't have the attention span to analyze and interpret issues and policies, my journal will probably be a little more interesting for awhile.

After I recover.

This would actually be pretty cool. Fuck the South, fuck the West, and fuck Florida. Let's see how the bitches do without most of our ports, cities, culture, education, and money. Sure, we won't have food, but we'll be able to buy Old America and turn Arizona into a detention camp. Let's see how they like it.

I'll add to all of the reactionary posts...


I knew it'd happen, I just didn't want to admit it. A Kerry victory was an absolute necessity... so what the fuck do we do now?

Also - someone actually managed to write something coherent and funny in the midst of all of this.

By the time most of you read this, you'll probably know who won and I will not (I sleep different hours), so bear with me.

I almost want Bush to win, because I'm afraid of Kerry coming into office and creating a whole assortment of new problems. Ok, maybe I don't want Bush to win, but I'm still worried.

Kerry does have to win, though: Bush CANNOT have the opportunity to select up to three new Supreme Court judges; he'll probably cause a lot more problems; but, most importantly, whoever wins now will probably effect who will run/win in 2008 - if Bush wins, Hillary Clinton will run in 2008. THIS WOULD SUCK ASS. She is a crazy fucking bitch, but I'll get into that only if Bush wins. Plus, she'll be running against another neo-con in 2008, because they'll have control of the party after two Bush wins. However, as I said before, if he loses, traditional conservatives may be able to wrestle the party back, and they'll probably win in 2008. Not good, but neither is Hillary, and neither are neo-cons. Then the Democrats could restructuralize their party to a more ideal stance since they wouldn't have to deal with the neo-cons, and 2012 will be a much, much better election.

Unless Bush wins.

Voted for my first time today; 3rd party (I live in MA, so no worries). I live in a very conservative town, however, so I thought I'd wear my awesome t-shirt:

lol link broken

My shirt alone got stares from each and every person standing outside holding signs because, besides traditional signs and bumper stickers, there's never anything that even resembles activism in this town. And I walked slow, because it felt good.

Now, I wasn't aware that you aren't supposed to wear anything that suggests how you're going to vote, so I was a bit surprised and defensive when the police officer came over to me as I started to vote and told me I had to take my shirt off. But it makes sense - you don't want to intimidate anyone. Afterward, the police officer told me she was sorry, it was policy, but she "shares the same sentiment". Hahahahah, that was awesome. She didn't say it quietly, either.

Also: read this.

Pertaining to my last political post:

I just read an article that outlined an interesting benefit, though double-edged, which would coincide with a Kerry victory (other than Bush not being reelected). Should Kerry be elected, there's a high probability that he'll spend the next four years reeling from Bush's quagmire in Iraq and the national debt at home. This will make him an easy target in 2008, which could ultimately mean that traditional conservatives may be able to wrestle back their party from the neo-conservatives.

Obviously, though I would ultimately choose neither, I certainly prefer trads over neos. Unfortunately, this would bring with it almost a guarantee of a Republican victory in 2008. They would still have all of the neo-cons voting for them, because the neo-cons don't care who they vote for as long as the candidate supports the killing of babies solely for sacrificial reasons. Republicans who view voting for Kerry this year as a necessary last resort will feel comfortable switching back in 2008; undecideds will be an easy target provided the Repubs use a less hostile campaign; and, should the Repub. candidate not be forceful, even some Democrats may vote that way in interest of trying something new. And actually, if Kerry fails to impress me over the next four years, I think a Traditional Republican victory in 2008 will be good for the left. Without having to worry about a nasty fight with the neo-cons, the left could again have a better, more liberal candidate who is a little stronger with the issues than they are deep with pockets.

Should all of this fall into place (though, while writing this out, I've begun to doubt it will), tensions engulfing the country probably won't be as high in the future. But then, one can only hope.

Best Netflix Review of Today:

"The disk we got was mislabeled. The side that said "standard" was really side 1 and the side that said "widescreen" was side 2 (both were widescreen). Ended up watching the second half first. Boy, side 1 really cleared up some questions."
