There is no such thing as natural land un-touched by human hands. There was the last ice age and then there were people there as the habitats created themselves. I'm not saying that global warming won't suck for people and won't suck for a whole bunch of plants and animals. But Plants and Animals as whole groups will eventually turn out ok. Its just people and a whole bunch of specific types of plants and animals that'll be destroyed.
Also. this page is friends only. or it is supposed to be. if you are a child molestor or the man or something, I don't know, don't read the posts that I haven't made friends only yet (because I'm going back and doing it by hand) [oh and also don't figure out some way to read the friends only posts] if you are friendly then like reply to this.

I received the following in an electronic mail message just now Thorsten A. Integrity
Due to a number of A-Rundlers not returning for LL30, additional LL29
B-Rundlers just outside the promotion zone have been moved up to
Rundle A for LL30. You are one of those players, so you have been
slotted into Rundle A for the new season.
the two greates words in the english language:
de fault de fault de fault de fault

so A told me that she saw an interview with Mel Brooks where he said he was working on making a remake of Young Frankenstein. If you add this remake to this years The Producer's and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, remaking movies that starred Gene Wilder seems to be the hottest trend in Hollywood. Gene Wilder is still alive and I would love to hear what he thinks about this. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000698/filmorate
the link above is to his filmography. If you want to make a lot of money go to a movie studio and pitch a remake of "See No Evil, Hear No Evil" and/or "Blazing Saddles" - quick before he dies.

|Zuegma: the hip literary device that is sweeping the nation
more fun to use than alliteration, less common than the unreliable narrator, better named than onomatopoeia ... it is zuegma: everyone's favorite literary device. Zuegma (from the Greek for yoking) "in the most common present usage, it is applied to expressions in which a single word stands in the same grammatical relation to two or more other words but with an obvious shift in signifigance."
Below are the fifteen best expressions using the device I have come up with over the past couple days. Please comment with a ranking of your favorite examples (by number) or make a post in your own journal adding your favorite of my compositions to a list of zuegma you come up with. It is a fun way to pass the hour and a half you spent waiting outside your appartment on tuesday night waiting for your aunt to show up.
1. The guitarist nailed his solo and then some groupies.
2. The investigator will catch the terrorist, or anthrax.
3. I lost my mother to cancer and my watch at her funeral.
4. I tied my shoes, then my best time running the mile.
5. Billy, consumed with rage, will bomb the test and then the school.
6. The blogger does not like spoilers in movie reviews or campaigns for president.
7. I stink at ice skating and when I don't shower.
8. The morning hunt will see the flight of pheasants or of the rakish con-man Count Doodlebaum who'd promised the Lords there would be pheasants in the field.
9. Seamus missed the early bus and the Irish countryside almost every morning.
10. Tiffany can become one with the universe or a subscriber to US magazine - not both.
11. Jessica Simpson could not iron out the problems in her marriage or the creases in her pants.
12. I am so bored and fearless, I will shoot some heroin, or some hoboes, or some film at the local military base.
13. September saw a flood of New Orleans and of donations to the Red Cross.
14. During divorce procedings against Hortence today, Geraldo fought for the Chrysler and against the staph infection he picked up on the bus yesterday.
15. The apple orchard bore fruit and the whole family's expectations.

|Now I'm running like a flaming pig
it is the lyrics to the beck song beercan which is on mellow gold and I think (if this is possible for a beck song) it is an underappreciated classic( Read more...Collapse )
I mean ... isn't that what we're all saying? "somebody bring me a plate of sassafras" I know that is what I want.

|ONE MORE TIME!
So, there is the bad tooth.
The bad tooth has been bad for a long time.
I hadn't been to the dentist since England and then I had a breakdown and there were sometimes where my oral hygeine wasn't spectacular and the Brit dentist had left some things that needed tending to
so I've been to the dentist like 1,2,3,4, times THEN times, 5,6 - and today 7 that is three days on the bad tooth. The bad tooth is on the bottom left. They can't numb it the regular way; they numb an area and then she takes a huge needle and like shoots this stuff inside of the gum and it is gross gross groos nasty bad feeling your gums fill up with this liquid. and it is horrible
and I have swallowed vomit from a panic attack at the optomatrist and I hate getting haircuts and I know you don't like going to the dentist but I don't like getting touched in my face or head. so... I like the dentist less than you.
SO I GET TO GO BACK AGAIN on the 1st. AGAIN. 4th time for this tooth - each one has been at least an hour and a half - the second was three hours or four.
other shit. also. y'know. happened , happening. I am taking a ten lesson free esperanto course by mail. http://www.esperanto-usa.org/lessons.html
yes you too should do it.
in better news I finally finished my new driving mix( Read more...Collapse )

|'Huge Leap' in English Bullying
I have said it before (I will probably say it again): English kids (under 16) are horrible horrible nasty brats. I don't exactly know why and apparently it is getting worse.
I was never really bullied as a kid and if I'd gone to an English school I would have been (I think) And it is quite possible that I was bullied but I didn't really notice.
It is also funny that there is a "children's czar" in England - I don't remember hearing from him when I was there.http://observer.guardian.co.uk/uk_news/story/0,6903,1641540,00.html

I readily believe that in the totality of things there are more invisible than visible natures. But who shall recount to us the family of all these things? and their degrees and relationships and distinctive signs and their individual functions? What do they do? What places do they inhabit? The human mind has always solicited knowledge of these matters but has never attained it. Meanwhile, I do not deny, it is sometimes pleasant to contemplate the image of a greater and better world in the mind as if in a picutre, lest the mind, accustomed to the trivia of modern life, should shrink excessively and sink completely into petty musings. But at the same time one must be intent upon truth, and moderation must be observed, so that we may distinguish the sure from the unsure, day from night.

it is a little bit depressing when you get drunk and you don't even have anyone to call that you shouldn't be calling when you are drunk. I mean I love my wife, my family, the cats, and my [shout outs to littlelamb and lavendertattoo] I mean there should be someone in my life that I can inappropriately telephone drunkenly and cause irreperable harm to my relationship with that person by stammering intoxicated.
But NO!!!!!!!!!! no relationships to ruin by ill-adivsed drunken telephony for Nick.
I guess I could piss off my grandparents but that doesn't really count Current Mood: dfghhgfffhdhfdfdhhfd
following my recommendation of "La Haine" or "Hate" dir. Mathieu Kassovitz http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0113247/
I would like to recommend "The Battle of Algiers" ("Battaglia di Algeri, La") 1965 dir. Gillo Pontecorvo http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0058946/
which was screened at the Pentagon in 2002 or 2003 as an instruction on how to torture terrorist suspects. It (like Hate) gives a certain (less direct than young inhabitants of "les banlieus" rioting after an arab boy dies in the hospital after a police beating) background to current French chicanery: it concerns itself with the French Army's attempts to control/defeat the suicide bombing insurgency in Algeria. Seriously it was shown at the Pentagon to show the benefits of torture and it is a fucking awesome, tight, eye-opening movie. Rent it.
and while I am recommending movies that I saw in my Europe after 1945 history class, check out "Lamerica" 1994 dir. Gianni Amelio about two Italian businessmen who go to Albania to make money right after the fall of communism. Not about the French at all but this movie fucking rocked my socks off - totally moving and a good insight into the second most hated and reviled ethnicity in Europe (after the Roma or Gypsies - I'm not counting Muslims as an 'ethnicity' here) I was supposed to go to my therapist after class which would have had me leave when calss ended but I stayed to see the end because it was so fucking good.( Read more...Collapse ) Current Mood: getting drunk
2.5 hours in the g.d. dentists chair. (NO EXAGGERATIONS, there was a clock I got into the chair at 1 and I got out at 3:30) and even after I talked to her fucking last time about saying "almost done" well before things are actually almost doen, she says it for the first time after a half an hour. I guess is that this is supposed to be helpful or soothing or some shit - but not for me it makes me tense when two hours later things aren't done. and apparently she says it in terms of like, I am almost done with the drilling I am going to be doing with this particular drill before switching to a different fucking drill.
oh and so the worst part is I get to go back for the same tooth (its going to end up being at least six hours total on this one fucking tooth) and so she put this Plaster? or something else flimsy sounding temporary thing on until then and she says no gum and be careful with ahrd and sticky stuff to eat it on the other side of your mouth. I say, NO GUM!? and she is like hem haw but fucking shit. The dentist has proven to be my worst trigger for smoking for the first time after periods of not smoking and I just stopped again and it is horrible - fucking horrible. like everyone hates the dentis but everyone isn't like me and doctors and getting touched in the face or head. most of you can go to the barber and most of you haven't had a panic attack dearing an eye exam.
OOOWWWWW where is my vicuprofin. I do not have any vicuprofin
I sincerely apologize to the people who will read this who have worse pain or have had worse ailments but this is one that is very acute at the moment.

um so on the subject of riotous French immigrants in the suburbs, there is the movie "Hate" or "La Haine" which is from 1995 and I thought it was super-amazing when I first saw it. Now this was when I was about 16 when I thought that "Clerks" and "From Dusk Till Dawn" were awesome movies. But I saw it again more recently than that. It is a very good movie: very well made with characters and a plot and issues and such and it is similar issues more or less that seem to be going on now. In France (and in some other places in Europe) the immigrant ghettos are in the suburbs far away from the expensive town center

I'm scared to go outside for the most part. It is the damn sun. I don't know. I mean, I don't remember this all-encompassing fear of it. Whenever I get outside recently it is just too much. I am a vampire and it burns and I go hsssss and I run back inside where I become lethargic and doughy and grow a fgross little opudge belly.

If I put in my website it would reveal my name to the world
do I care?
I'm glad the date shows up on these so that sense may be forgiven
One lucky guy with money could win they opportunity of a life-time by buying a building anywhere in New York City and then giving it to me! You then get to give me more money as I turn the building into the "Museum of Now" (one of the permanent installations being my apartment.)
so, I am in (I did notice this typo/skip of the mind just here but decided to leave it in as it was funny. I also declined to remove this entire paranthetical remakrk which you are now reading despite the fact of its pretiounscious nature. my friends computer(who has the common dreams political website as his home page)(and and so now I am making a journal because donnareed (I've still never understood the whole intenet pseudonym - I just used my real life pseudonym that I use day to day ) made one for me so I could read hers because it was friends only. She did this because she was drunk and took too many ritalin and was scared and didn't want to go home.(there's nothing wrong with that in my opinion). So now I have this journal. I am writing it and you are reading it.
