I guess we know what the REAL dominant religion in the US is. 

“Chan Chandler, pastor of East Waynesville Baptist, had been exhorting his congregation since October to support his political views or leave, said Selma Morris, a 30-year member of the church.

“He preached a sermon on abortion and homosexuality, then said if anyone there was planning on voting for John Kerry, they should leave,” she said. “That’s the first time I’ve ever heard something like that. Ministers are supposed to bring people in.”

I haven't posted in a really long time. This is Rome: Total War's fault.

I eat now.

"Let's pop down to Heathrow and test all the foreigners for AIDS!" 

So I found some Star Wars cards in my desk yesterday. Christ, what a terrible game. It brought back some memories about my card-mania. I loved cards, I collected all different sorts: Baseball, hockey, dinosaurs [!], Magic, Star Trek, Star Wars... etc. I've been hearing some good reviews trickling in for the new movie, the general consensus seems to be that it's better than I&II and–gasp–someone said it was comparable to VI. I've tried to avoid spoilers, but I don't know why ("So all the Jedi die? And Anakin Skywalker becomes Darth Vader?" (Yes, even Sith Lords have blogs now. This one is intermediately funny.)

So gmail's been annoying me recently. Not the whole robot-reads–my–mail–and–inserts–ads–into–it thing, but something that I will generically call "the jump". Ever since tabbed browing I pretty much do all my surfing (do they still call it that?) in one window. So I load up gmail and flip to another tab to do other things and then BAM it'll jump back to the gmail tab. If I'm typing in a new URL or clicking on the screen that'll then be in the gmail tab. Because obviously I have to look at my e-mail right now and any delay of a few seconds would spell disaster.

But what's really pissing me off is Something Positive. I read 3 webcomics: It, PVP and Penny Arcade. I read PA and PVP because they're funny, which–I just realized–Something Positive is not. Pretty much every SP goes a little like this.
First Panel: BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH...BLAH
Second Panel: BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH...BLAH
Third Panel: BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH...BLAH
Fourth Panel: BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH...cynical statement or threat of violence
I cut off some of the blahs because that cartoon is wordy as fuck. The worst part is, it used to be funny. But now it's completly surcumbed to soap-operaitis, and focuses exclusively on the characters. The main problem with this is that the characters are all douchebags! Every single one of them (the terrible thing is that these are–allegedly–real people). Finally, pertaining to the discussion on cartoon hotness we had, Peejee used to be hot. Now, she is not. In fact it's like all the characters were hit by an ugly ray.

Anyway, that's my little geek digression of the day. Meanwhile check out this Labour campaign ad. No wonder they won.


Pussy pussy pussy marijuana. 

Listening to "Alligator" by The National right now, and enjoying it tremendously. If by "enjoying" I mean feeling like I'm going to die of a broken heart, sometimes, anyway.

Also musically, Brazilian Girls. They're cool. They're sexy. They have a song with the title of my post as a chorus. Check them out.

Played more Warhammer with Box and Neil today. I got massacred, but I think that if it hadn't been for a) bad luck against a Bloodthirster and b) a stupidity test failure at the wrong moment I'd have fared a lot a lot better. Ah well. I need to take a break from this before I get back into it too seriously. Next thing you know, I'll have Magic cards or something.

I must go to a concert tomorrow. This has to happen.

Job'd! 

Once again, the bitch-goddess of employment has heeded my prayers and granted me the boon of a job. However, there is no gain without sacrifice, and the price price for my newfound monetary gain is eternal servitude to the sandwich makers. In short, I can now be found working weekdays at the Black Camel sandwich shop just outside of Rosedale subway station, a slightly more high-end location then my previous job.

In short, I can drink again!!!

Thank you Grey's Anatomy. Tony Soprano is my HERO! 

Back in T.O - and THRILLED that I have been able to say "bye bye suckaz" to AgriFood. But nothing really lasting - not like with exams - I haven't conquered or accomplished or had my face beat into the ground by anything. It's just...done.

Then I went back to waterloo for a day and a bit (sun/mon) and I was hit with a sort of sadness...I mean, I don't really want to go back there (for school)...but I'm going to miss a lot of things. It's funny how certain situations change to drastically in two years...and suddenly the person you hated starting day 1 (ACTUALLY - the pretentious ass) ends up being the person you'll miss most.

And circumstance just blows. So does thinking responsibly and unselfishly. But this is a huge crossroads, and when two people have very different paths, I guess the best thing to do is toast keeping in touch with screwdrivers made with orange vodka and be content knowing that at least the feeling is mutual, even if it sucks.

Grrr, so melancholy. I need some sunshine. Where is the bloody sun? I mean HAIL in MAY? W-T-F, mate?


Done and Done! 

So yesterday capped off the end of my first year, kind of anticlimatic but I was definately glad to have finished all of my exams. Today I'm feverishly packing all of my stuff ready to return to the T.O. Goddamn there's a) a lot of stuff and b) a lot of dust! Almost have everything done, but still gotta clean the bath-room. I'll be doing summer school upon returning to Toronto...and...I'm still unemployed.

Said my goodbyes to those I'd met this year, a few of whom have put in the transfer to head to St.George campus as well, but we'll see how it all pans out.

To those that don't know, I'm also gonna be going for physiotherapy, got some tendonitis in my right forearm that needs to be taken care of. Got an appointment tomorrow. I'm also fairly confident that I'll get my transfer to go to St.George campus instead of Mississauga for next semester :D

See you apers in a few days!

Secret geekdom 

So I've been listening to randomly selected hip hop tracks all day today, and I've noticed something a lil' weird. In at least five of the songs, I've heard references to what can only be D&D. Furthermore, some of these are more than just obvious allusions-- for example, on "What More Can I Say?", Jay-Z CLEARLY says "Add that to the THAC0". Mos Def also makes a couple allusions in songs, as did Guru once, and MOP I think. SGCIR?P. (Sneakret Geek Conspiracy In Rap? Perhaps.)

EDIT

So apparently, according to some lyrics sites, Jay-Z says "Add that to the fact..."

But I'm not convinced.

EDIT TIMES TWO

Are you going to the Time Travelers' Convention? There's only going to be one, but if you miss it, you could always go later.
