This Just In
We are just hearing a bit of news from the Republican National Convention coverage, it seems that former Hillary supporters are not impressed by the fact that McCain's running mate has two X chromosomes, possibly due to the fact that she's a religious nut-job with barely any experience who's politics are the polar opposite of Hillary's. So, it seems women aren't easily placated, gullible morons. Who knew?
Still working on my interviews from PAX. I'll be uploading it in pieces, because it is pretty long. The main two problems are that iMovie is terrible at placing subtitles, and youtube deleted part one because of profanity. Fucking youtube.
Sometimes There Are No Words
This is one of those times. Read the full article.

The Scream Awards are once again upon us! Cast your votes for best Comic book writing, Sci-Fi, and Horror of the year. Also, as a personal comment, the last vote asks you to submit your choice for what movie you’re dying to see. I humbly suggest REPO! The Genetic Opera as the vote you cast.
...And that is why the sky is blue, Clay Aikens is gay.

Paul Newman and the Federal Wall Street bail-out
I'm in a good mood and feel like spreading some cheer
You are going to die someday, probably of something horrendously painful. Also, your parents had sex to make you and now you're thinking about it. Enjoy!
Those pesky dimes...

Live from Fake Virginia!
What did you do today?
~Big Josh [11/04/2008]
What a great night! Virginia goes blue and we can now say President Barack Obama! Yes we can!
~Lunchbox Mike [11/04/2008]
I've been waiting quite a while to say this...
Obama, Yo Mama.
I now live in a country who's leader rhymes with Yo Mama. As a guy who tells jokes, I am so happy I'm crying.
Beautiful red sunset, brilliant blue dawn
Out-freakin'-standing!! Blue is such a nice color on VA, especially since it's the first time in my lifetime I've seen it happen. And a blue DC is a nice, refreshing change from the rather stifling red and ineffective purple of late. Well done, Barack Obama! Well done, Mark Warner! This whole deal means so much to a whole freakin' lot of us, you know.
To John McCain: Thank you, sir. Thank you for being professional, graceful and prompt in your concession. Thank you for not dragging this out into a long, bitter and bilious fight. Quite a few of your supporters could learn from that example.
I love tempered glass
I spent this morning thinking about everything that's wrong with our society at this point in human evolution. Then while doing the dishes, I poured cold water over my hot glass coffee pot and realized how completely amazing it is that we have material that doesn't shatter in this circumstance. I mean, glass is supposed to be fragile! Sharp temperature changes like that should be enough to fracture its brittle molecules from each other but we found a way around that! Seriously, think about it. Tempered glass is awesome.
New national CTO
Pres-to-be Obama is going to appoint the nation's first CTO (Chief Technical Officer). This post and staff will pointedly cover the nation's concerns about anything and everything IT. For a nation so advanced in technology, it's a bit surprising (or maybe not, considering who was in charge) that this hasn't been done yet. Issues like net neutrality, the DMCA implications and intellectual property rights will be covered by this office. Go to ObamaCTO and vote on what you think should be the national CTO's top priorities!
This shit will change most people's lives
Go here. I'm fucking serious. Don't believe me? Fine. Go there anyway.
Of course. Drugs.
Drugs have never been my thing, but since college I was always fine with people who wanted to use them. Whatever, it's their thing. However, a lot of people who do drugs think that I'm anti-drugs simply because I don't do them. So it has always offended the living crap out of me when people who blow their mind out on drugs - which is fine - insist that everyone needs to do it as well to see what they see. Live your own life, believe what you want to believe, and leave me to my path. I spoke to god once, and I'm a sober atheist. I just figured, what, an omnipresent being doesn't need spokesmen. If he has something to say to you, he'll just say it. So out of curiosity, I listened, and heard one word in my head, clear as day: "Draw." So, either I've got a great imagination, or god, in his wisdom, took the one moment he knew I'd be listening to tell me, as simply as possible, that I'm on the right path for my life. Woot. In a nutshell, religion is personal, trust yourself and your own path and don't get taken up by people who are so excited about their path that they simply must share it with you.
These people don't deserve to breathe....
How pathetic are people today? Look at these assholes . I'm all about spending my money on mindless entertainment and needless goods, but to trample a guy who's just trying to earn a paycheck so you can get a "great holiday deal"? I am so fucking pissed off right now.
