kiia and I have had a revelation today. I was watching a SyFy Original Movie and I was wondering where they get the ideas for these crappy movies. The first one had a wyvern, another had cave bears, and the new one tonight has a frost giant. Then it hit me.

It's the Monster Manual.

I think that when they need a new movie, someone at SyFy just dusts off the D&D monster manual, picks a random largish monster out of it, and off they go. Seriously. Tell me I'm wrong.

Merry meet and merry part and merry meet again.

I don't even know what to say. I heard of irana 's passing yesterday, an now I have a chance to post.

Except for occasions at clubs, we always seemed to talk about guns, explosives and warfare. I best remember sitting at table at one of Mel's parties discussing the relative merits of various arms over catfish, crabs, and strong liquor. So I'll drink a glass to her.

Tasha, I'll miss you, even though we so rarely got to see one another. I wish we could have gone to a fight as comrades. It would have been an honor and a blast. Rest you well and fare you well, my friend.

May Goddess and God show her favor and grant her entry into paradise. Tasha is worthy, so say I.

Has anime really gotten that pervasive?

As I was walking through the lobby at my office today, I heard a familiar tune coming from the speakers. The lobby music is generally innocuous smooth jazz. What did I hear: an innocuous smooth jazz version of the theme from Lupin III.

Like what?

Copied and pasted:

In Massachusetts, a young man named Gregg Housh is facing criminal harrassment charges for participating in a series of protests. Should the court find him guilty, it will set a precedent that affects us all. If protesting an organization constitutes criminal harassment, then the first amendment means nothing. Any company can have any one of us hauled off and thrown into jail just for speaking our minds. This is OUTRAGEOUS.

Please, help us prevent this dangerous precedent from being set. Gregg is in dire need of support. The Massachusetts ACLU office can be reached at:

Thank you all for your support.

And the republic dies a little more...

In this report from ABC News today the VP was asked about the fact that now as much as 2/3 of people believe that the war in Iraq is not worth it. His answer certainly seems to confirm that the administration doesn't give half a crap about what the people think or want, and that they will continue to prosecute their war regardless. Heres the quotes:

When asked how that assessment comports with recent polls that show about two-thirds of Americans say the fight in Iraq is not worth it, Cheney replied, "So?"

"You don't care what the American people think?" Raddatz asked the vice president.

"You can't be blown off course by polls," said Cheney, who is currently on a tour of the Middle East. "This president is very courageous and determined to go the course. There has been a huge fundamental change and transformation for the better. That's a huge accomplishment."

Nice to know that our elected officials pay such careful attention to the wishes of the body politic. I mean I know that those guys don't really care what we think, and since they cant get reelected, they don't need to care. But at least *pretend* to give a crap.

Reminds me of the bit from Ghostbusters 2: "Hey, I'm a voter! Aren't you supposed to lie to me and kiss my butt?"

Funny thought of the day...

This? This is ice. This is what happens to water when it gets too cold. This? This is the Westboro Baptist Church. This is what happens to people when they get too sexually frustrated.
