we make money not art: Playing mobile games with buildings

we make money not art: Playing mobile games with buildings

My only question is where to put my quarters to reserve the next game? News | Paralyzed Broadcasting System News | Paralyzed Broadcasting System:
"The controversy surrounding the children's series 'Postcards From Buster,' featuring a cartoon bunny who, in one episode, visits Vermont to make maple syrup and meets children from two families headed by lesbian couples, generated headlines last week when incoming Education Secretary Margaret Spellings lambasted the episode as inappropriate."

I have an uncle who wouldn't let his kids watch "Sesame Street" because it showed black kids and white kids playing together. In Pasadena, Tx where I grew up I'm sure that was more common than we'd like to think. Still I never thought that would be the mentality of the folks running the country. Yet, here we are. Suddenly it's like D.C. 2005 is Birmingham 63 or even Pasadena 74....
I don't understand why folks can't get it through their head...
all us folks, every one of us, is stuck here and we're stuck here together. The sooner we start acting like it and looking out for each other instead of trying to find ways to marginalize and ostracize each other the better off we'll ALL be...

I have been dutifully watching Enterprise this season, and well quite
frankly, even the best eps couldn't touch BG or even Atlantis SG-1...
so, good riddance I reckon...

good mood

I have been in an exceptionally good mood lately...
not sure why, although I'm sure the BLP show being a hit helped,
and of course the rock magic of The Mathletes is a powerful
happy thing...
but it's really weird...
sure, the undercurrent of desperation is there...
the idea that if I have to do this job,
or really any job,
for the rest of my life
I'll go INSANE...
sure, there's that...
and of course there's still
the whole nothing
on the love life front...
and of course the binge drinking,
and other recreational brain destroying activities...
the house is a mess,
the computer in my bedroom died,
my dvd remote broke,
and my car is falling apart...
sure, those things are all there...
but overall,
I'm feeling good, if not downright optimistic...
and all without pharmaceuticals.

I am...

I am incredibly self-involved.
When I think about myself,
which is often,
this is what I think,
"I am incredibly self-involved."

32 Short Stories about Brazosport

and it went GREAT!!!
3 performances, good crowds, and lots of great compliments...
Paul is a funny funny man and he gave us a great script to work with...
and then everybody just ran with it...
hopefully we'll restage it again...
cause if you missed it,
well, you really missed something.

REAL ART (and politics and culture)

REAL ART (and politics and culture):
"There are only a handful -- probably fewer than five hundred -- corporations that abuse or assert corporate personhood in the United States. Yet the harm they do to our economy and our republic is enormous. If they were denied personhood, we could root corruption out of government, get corporations out of politics, and make America safe and hospitable for entrepreneurs and small- and medium-sized businesses again, leading to an explosion in economic activity."

corporate personhood is a vile scam perpetrated on we the people by activist judges!!!
(linking to Ron over at real art instead of directly to Buzzflash or Working for Change cause you should be reading Ron every day like I do!!!)

Burnt Orange Report

Burnt Orange Report: "The first evaluation of abstinence-only programs used by the state of Texas shows that high school students have become more sexually active after abstinence-only education became federal policy"

Do I really need to say anything?

Fw: [IPCUSA] Spontaneous phenomenon

Subject: [IPCUSA] Spontaneous phenomenon

Because of causality I don't know I could be careful but I have not done
intended mistake in that matter. That causality seems to have ability of
knowing. What was hurting is not evidence to tell if there is some one to do
that. There are links one I knew but didn't see to be too stressful.
Normally I don't use French there but as a text it was one part. Overall I
can say only that there is continuing feedback and you don't need to look
for names or errors.
