An email sent to Katherine Harris

Monday, August 28th, 2006

someone I know wrote this, after seeing this I just read in a news blurb about how you think that separation of church and state is a lie. Goodness, did your campaign manager instruct you to do this? Did you even consult him/her prior to such a blatantly ignorant remark? Just because that Christian base [...]

Typical US tactics

Saturday, August 26th, 2006

Item #1: NYC man charged with distributing terrorist TV (here) So, a man with a legitimate business broadcasting satellite feeds to his fellow city dwellers is arrested for offering Hezbollah TV. This tv station is labeled as a “news” station and I seriously doubt that it is much more than propaganda for the intifadah. However, [...]

Beauty and Ambiguity

Sunday, August 20th, 2006

i began this post in my head early today with a line like: i am plagued by ambiguity, or rather the stifling significance of the term lately. One of the definitions given at Webster’s Online is: capable of being understood in two or more possible senses or ways. i guess that i am just having [...]

Wiretap justice

Thursday, August 17th, 2006

i assume most of you heard about the judge’s ruling on the illegal wiretapping the president covertly introduced after 9/11. You know, the one where the NSA can tap phone calls without warrants. well, if you have not read it, here it is. For now, because i have not thought enough about this, i am [...]

the crux

Wednesday, August 16th, 2006

the cover of newsweek is on terrorism. my boss comes to me with this same old argument that “they” deserve this and understand nothing but force. true genius is found in making connections between seemingly dissimilar things. i often tell my friends, when they bitch about someone wronging them after they help them, that sometimes [...]

a revist to the Miami FTAA protest

Sunday, August 13th, 2006

so those of you who know me well know that recently i have made a habit of going to political protests. primarily my partners and i have concentrated on anti-globalization and anti-republican events. this whole trend got started with the shocking treatment the Miami PD put us protestors through in November 2003. to rehash for [...]

a wal-mart conspiracy?

Friday, August 11th, 2006

last night while at my favorite watering hole i randomly yelled out things like, “don’t we all feel safer now that the TSA has banned shampoo and toothpaste?” and, “doesn’t anyone else understand that this litany of do’s and dont’s is destined to be endless?” the total lack of shock and reaction from the bar [...]

TV show pitch–feedback would be good

Thursday, August 10th, 2006

so, if anyone actually bothers to read all the comments and other shit in this blog, you would have noticed a comment from a friend of mine that made a passing remark about a tv show and me getting to drink booze. naturally, i was intrigued. so yesterday morning me and some friends were kicking [...]

the tragedy of language

Monday, August 7th, 2006

as i have noted earlier (here) the art of language is slowly being lost in the modern world. From txt msging to email to casual conversation, language is being mangled. then again, language is such a fluid thing. it can warm one’s heart one minute, and destroy one the next. one can utilize it to [...]

best we ek ever, a re cap (very long)

Monday, August 7th, 2006

israel and lebanon. buddhism and quantum physics. random stuff.

philosophical ramblings as the sun rises

Saturday, August 5th, 2006

this morning around 8-10 AM, a friend and i had a somewhat heated discussion about philosophy and teleology. it was heated because her and i were not agreeing on much–and had had no sleep for who knows how damn long. here is a sum up, of sorts, of my points. there is no purpose to [...]

I always wanted to be normal

Friday, August 4th, 2006

i remember always being an outcast growing up. sometimes my memory is of feeling akward and unaccepted. at other times i would feel different, somehow separate from the other kids. sometimes it was blatant, at other times it was very subtle. in grade school i was singled out as being one of those “gifted” kids. [...]

beautiful people versus materialism

Thursday, August 3rd, 2006

so, as anti-materialist as i am i have my desires. a BIG tv, nice stereo, **word deleted**. but as i talk more and more with my beautiful muse, i realize what i really think is important. a conversation i had many months ago is an illustration: me: i spend alot of money on beer. someone [...]
