FUDD, or here we go again... again!

So, it's election season again? My, how time flies.

I guess it's time for one of my "WAKE UP, [insert voter base]!" rants. (See: This and this and this and....)

Really, I'm just tired of this. All the sheep out there falling for the rhetoric. I'd like to say it's just a case of FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt), but this time out, it smells like FUDD: Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt and Deception. The Tories have already been called out for lying, which they haven't addressed, and the stupid little game goes on. It doesn't help that Dion's functionally useless as a leader, or that Jack Layton likes to talk a lot. I won't mention May, as she doesn't represent a real party, and nobody really takes her seriously except the media who seem to think that there's a story there.

It's looking more and more like the Tories are going to get a majority, which will flush this country down the toilet. I mean, look at the mess south of the border, and remember who's been running that country for 8 years now. Sure, you could point to the Democrats in the house, but the Republicans are who are making sure that nothing gets done. Bush is coming off as a saviour, but really...?

So, Canada, do you really want to elect a party who wishes that they were the GOP? And by wishes, I means prays to their evil black deity (whom they call God, but I have my doubts) with all that their little black hearts can muster each night to be included on Dubya's Christmas card list. Do you? Really?

If so, don't say I didn't warn you. You'll just vote like you're told to, and then whine when things are a mess again.

Yeah, Canada, you'll get what you deserve if they get a majority.

I won't have a self-satisfied grin when it's exposed that I'm right, because I'll be too busy lubing up for what's coming. If I can't have a socially responsible government, I'll at least want to be somewhat comfortable getting what you people wanted.

Thanks in advance for that.

I can't believe I took this test

The Boy Next Door

Random Gentle Love Dreamer (RGLD)

The Boy Next Door

Kind, yearning, playful, you are The Boy Next Door. You're looking for real Love, a lot like girls do. It might not be manly, but it's sweet.

We think the next three years will be very exciting and fruitful ones for you. Your spontaneous, creative side makes you a charming date, and we think you have a horny side just waiting to shine. Or glisten, rather. You enter new relationships unusually hopeful, and the first moments are especially glorious. If you've had some things not work out before, so what.

On paper, most girls would name the Boy Next Door as their ideal mate. In the real world, however, you're often passed over for more dangerous or masculine men. You're the typical "nice guy:" without just a touch of cockiness, you're doomed with girls. A shoulder to cry on? Okay, sure. But never a penis to hold.

More than any other type, Boys Next Door evolve as they get older. As we said, many find true love, but some fail miserably in the search. These tarnished few grow up to be The Men Next Door, who are creepy as hell, offering backrubs to kids and what not.

Your exact male opposite:

The 5-Night Stand

The 5-Night Stand

Deliberate Brutal Sex Master

Always avoid: The Nymph (DBSD)

Consider: The Maid of Honor (DGLM), The Peach (RGLM)

Yeah, I haven't exactly been posting recently. Honestly, not enough time and too little to talk about, or rather, nothing really worth talking about. Anyways....

Listening (to): Bob Marley, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Verve, Radiohead, MIA, Black Sabbath, Thievery Corporation, Public Enemy, Daft Punk and the Order 66 podcast.

The more you know, the less you can know.



It's raining outside. Dreary.

I am alone today.

I wish I wasn't.


Thursday, September 11, 2008


Yeah, about the below?

I'm a jackass.


Nothing interesting happened today, part 1

It's been just over three months since Mary died. Most days, I'm perfectly fine, but then something hits me, and I'm a wreck. I can deal with feeling sad, as losing Mary is a sad thing, but I hate how it affects my relationships with other people. I generally either get hyper-sensitive or else I get apathetic at these times. Over the weekend, it was apathy, this week it's hyper-sensitive. I'm guessing apathy this weekend too.

Last night, I needed to talk to someone, but I couldn't.

The person who said that they would always be a phone call away, wasn't, and didn't reply over MSN. I ended up crying myself to a fitful sleep. While I know that I'm probably not being ignored, I can't really know either way, but I definitely feel that I am. All I needed was 15 minutes of human contact, a friendly voice, and I couldn't get it.

Quote of the _____

"Americans are a broad-minded people. They'll accept the fact a person can be an alcoholic, a dope fiend, a wife beater, but if a man reads comics then there's something wrong with him"

In a world...

... without Don LaFontaine.

The voice will definitely be missed, and trailers will never be the same.

BTW, the guy you were thinking it was, is Hal Douglas of the Comedian trailer fame.
Don't worry. I got them mixed up too.
