subject: Much Watch T.V.

    One of my favorite new shows has got to be Heroes.  Great characterization and development (and this with only 2 episodes in).  It is kind of an X-Men setting grounded in more realism.  You must check it out.  It is a moral imperative.  It is on tonight at 9.

Another must watch show is Battlestar Galactica.  This is honestly the best show I have seen in years.  Every episode leaves me staring at the screen in awe and amazement.  If you like dark and gritty sci-fi, do yourself a favor and start watching this one.  You will not be disappointed.  If you have iTunes you can get the free "Battlestar Galactica: The Story So Far" to get completely caught up.

subject: New Community

    Hi all.  Just wanted to drop in and let everyone know I started a new community (vampire_requiem) for White-Wolf's new vampire setting.  If anyone is interested it is open to members atm and we don't have many (hint, hint) yet.  That is all.

subject: Immortality

    Scientists have discovered a bacteria, that for all intents and purposes, seems to be immortal.  They also believe this may be a key to regenerating dead cells in the human body... essentially bring them (cells) back to life.  Anyone else thinking the T Virus from Resident Evil?  You can read the whole article here: Bacteria

"To be immortal is commonplace; except for man, all creatures are immortal, for they are ignorant of death; what is divine, terrible, incomprehensible, is to know that one is immortal."

     - Jorge Luis Borges (Argentinian Poet and Essayist, 1899-1986)


"To desire immortality is to desire the eternal perpetuation of a great mistake."

     - Arthur Schopenhauer (German Philosopher, 1788-1860)

subject: Out of Work Models, Looking For a Good Home

    It is about time the fashion industry woke up.  Maybe if the other shows take notice this can become an industry-wide movement.  With any luck it could help the generations of young girls who grew up thinking you had to be a size 2, to be happy and beautiful.  If nothing else it would be good for future generations.

Out of work models...

subject: Return Fire on the Anti-Gay Activists

Stolen from Warren Ellis (comic-writing genius), who stole it from porphyre.

"I enjoyed a nice one-panel comic in the newspaper the other day. I don't remember it precisely, but essentially the panel was a priest standing at the altar, marrying two men, "Congratulations, you have now become political fodder for the government to keep people distracted from the real issues."

What with the Washington State Supreme Court handing down its anti-gay-marriage decision several weeks ago and the ever-hearing more about attacks on reproductive rights down south, I'm feeling that the States is tripping a bit too merrily down the Handmaid's path.

This week, I found a way to strike back.

Focus on the Family, the horrid anti-gay evangelical church based in Colorado Springs that wields too much power for anyone's good, has a store on their website that will give you books, CDs, and DVDs absolutely free of charge. Usually people pay for their items by donation, raising millions of dollars to help Focus on the Family produce more hate-propaganda featuring "experts" on homosexuality who claim it's a curable "sickness". (They're practically defined by their book A Parent's Guide to Preventing Homosexuality. Course, there's no mention of having less kids, which is the only proven method. No, no, you shouldn't use birth control, that would be wrong. They need more worshippers, how dare you prevent god's will.)

It's a little bit time-consuming, but not enough to deter me. (Nor should it you). The chance to take money out of their pockets is too useful, not to mention satisfying.

Here's how to do it in 10 steps:"

HOWTO Screw Some Evangelist Maggots Right In The Wallet


**UPDATE**
    They apparently figured out what was going on and have now fixed the checkout process.  If you don't pay at least the "suggested" amount it will not complete the transaction online.  You get the following message:

" We are unable to process your request online as the amount you've chosen is less than the suggested donation. We may be able to complete your request, but you must first contact us directly at (800) A-FAMILY (232-6459) in order for us to assist you.

If you wish, you may return to the previous screen and specify a different donation amount for these resources. Thank you."


    So much for a suggested donation.  It amounts more to "you're not paying us enough, so call us, that way we can talk you out of your money".  Isn't a donation supposed to be voluntary, as opposed to required?

subject: Ramblings of the Infrequent Poster

    Well.... hello strangers.  Err wait.  That would be me.  Just realized it has been just over two months, since my last post.  I have been side-tracked and have not even checked LJ, let alone post or respond to others.  My new obsession was triggered by using Azureus, which led me to find digital comics in the form of .cbr and .cbz files (need CDisplay to read them properly).  I have not collected comics for years, as the price increases made it a complete financial impossibility.  With this I can catch up on these old friends and not put my family (and my descendants) into inescapable debt.  For a small sampling, you can check out my shared drive at 4Shared.

    In other news, I am now going to weekly SAA meetings.  This was a big step for me and I cannot describe the feeling I get when I see erthymamma look at me with proud eyes.  Thank you my love, your support means the world to me.

faobharcoisiche had neck surgery on Thursday.  We are a little concerned as he has stronger pain in his arm, than he did before the surgery.  The doctor seems to think it is just swelling from the surgery and will pass.  Please keep him in your thoughts.

I think that is all for now.  Gonna try and pop up more often if possible.  Until then, take care all.
