I think I prefer Joy Division.

New York Post Online Edition: gossip:
"a cousin of Kerry's, Michael Paine, was a close friend of Oswald who fre quently had the assassin as a house guest. Paine even stored the rifle Oswald used to shoot Kennedy at his house."

heads or tails folks...either way we're shortchanged...
remember Neil Bush and Scott Hinckley's connection?

So, when Nader says there's no difference between Bush and Kerry in some ways he's right...
they are both reptiles from the same genealogical line...
they are both connected to the intelligence community...
they are just warring factions of elites lording over us...
Kerry understands we'll make better drones if we're taken care of just a little...that's the difference...

it's all "thesis-antithesis-synthesis"...
Bush is making extreme moves enacting "the agenda". He knows it will push us towards Kerry and the Dems that will then make other extreme moves towards enacting "the agenda"....
Bush stirs up the middle east, Kerry finishes the job.
Bush brings down our standard of living,
Kerry brings us back into the world as a weaker actor.
All moving towards...wait for it...

Off the Kuff

Off the Kuff: "Thirty years ago this Halloween, a man living in the Houston suburb of Deer Park murdered his 8-year-old son by spiking a package of Pixy Stix with cyanide. Halloween has never been the same since."

my home town...
I remember it well, or well, I don't really...
I guess I was 4 at the time...
but I do remember going to the church or the school for some kind of fall festival and not trick or treating as a kid...
sure do like pixy sticks though... Arts & Entertainment | The Fix Arts & Entertainment | The Fix:
"Weird Halloween factoid (insert your own 'bloodsucking politician' joke here): George W. Bush and John Kerry are ninth cousins twice removed and can each trace their lineage back to Vlad II Dracul, the 15th century Transylvanian warlord who inspired Bram Stoker's 'Dracula' (, via Rush and Molloy) . "

fucking reptiles.
we're catching up to them.
think I'll go have a heart attack now.

John Peel dies

Legendary radio DJ John Peel dies
Veteran BBC broadcaster John Peel has died at the age of 65, while on holiday in Peru.

Peel, whose radio career spanned 40 years, was on a working holiday in the city of Cuzco with his wife Sheila when he suffered a heart attack.

He was BBC Radio 1's longest-serving DJ and in recent years had also presented Home Truths on Radio 4.

Radio 1 controller Andy Parfitt said Peel's contribution to modern music and culture was "immeasurable".

'Hugely missed'

He added: "John Peel was a broadcasting legend. I am deeply saddened by his death as are all who work at Radio 1. "John's influence has towered over the development of popular music for nearly four decades.

"Hopeful bands all over the world sent their demo tapes to John knowing that he really cared.

"His commitment and passion for new music only grew stronger over the years. In fact, when I last saw him he was engaged in a lively debate with his fellow DJs over the state of new music today

"He will be hugely missed."

Mr Parfitt told Radio 1's Newsbeat that Peel had been on a holiday of a lifetime when he died.


He added: "He had gone on holiday with Sheila to a place where he had always wanted to go."

BBC director general Mark Thompson said: "We are all very shocked and saddened by the news of John's death.

"He was one of the giants of radio and will be missed, not just by everyone at the BBC, but by millions of listeners of all ages."

Tony Blair's spokesman said the Prime Minister was "genuinely saddened by the news".

He added: "His view is that he was a unique voice in British broadcasting and used that voice to unearth new talent and different subjects and make them accessible to a much wider audience."

Radio 1 DJ Jo Whiley, who presented coverage of the Glastonbury Festival with Peel, paid tribute to her colleague and close friend.

She said: "John was simply one of my favourite men in the whole world - as a music fan and presenter he was simply an inspiration."

Mainstream music

Peel was born in Heswall, near Liverpool, and after completing his military service in Britain in 1962, went to the US where he began working for a radio station in Dallas.

It was because of him I got to hear some of the most obscure but influential music I ever heard
James Dean Bradfield, Manic Street Preachers

He joined Radio 1 at the launch in 1967, and established himself with the late night programme Top Gear.

He became one of the first DJs to give exposure to punk, reggae and hip-hop, before they crossed over into the mainstream.

Peel's programme built up a reputation around the world, and in addition to his Radio 1 programme, he could also be heard on the BBC's World Service.

James Dean Bradfield, lead singer of the Manic Street Preachers, paid tribute to Peel.

He told BBC News Online: "It was because of him I got to hear some of the most obscure but influential music I ever heard.

"He was a lifeline to hearing music I would never have heard otherwise. The service he provided was getting to hear music that you couldn't buy in Cardiff. He was a portal to a whole new world."

He always had his finger on the pulse of the music industry
Michael Bradley, Undertones
Blur lead singer Damon Albarn said John Peel's patronage was "one of the most significant things that happened to us in our careers".

"The world is going to be a poorer place with his sudden departure. I will miss him deeply," he added.

"I want to send my heartfelt sympathy to his lovely family. John's memory will never be forgotten because he had the spirit of music in him."

Favourite record

After announcing Peel's death on Radio 1, the station played his favourite song, Teenage Kicks, by the Undertones.

Michael Bradley, bass player for the Undertones, spoke of his shock on learning of Peel's death.

He said: "He was a very funny, very warm man and we will always be grateful for what he did for The Undertones.

"Personally, I find it incredible what he did for the band and we always got huge pride out of the fact that he said Teenage Kicks was his favourite single.

"He always had his finger on the pulse of the music industry and the fact that Radio 1 played the Undertones, the White Stripes and the Strokes today showed just how relevant he remained throughout his career."

this is only a test.

thinking too much...

leads to thoughts like this...

I live in a country where a man who woke up on his 40th birthday and decided he'd try not being a drunk is President, but I can't get a job with Clear Channel because I have bad credit.

on another note I think I'm gonna give NANOWRIMO a try this year...
lord knows I'm not busy enough...
I know how I'll start, but I have no idea where it will go...
and I'm staying true to my nature and tackling the first draft without an outline...
50,000 words by december 1st...
anyone care to join me?
