Curious to see what I should be expecting from Netflix this week, I took a peek and added a few new discs to the queue.

And noticed I've rated 1177 movies/shows so far. I'm averaging almost one disc a day at this rate. Geez =)

Palin Relief

More fun with photoshop, whee!

More fun with photoshop.

Off the campaign trail to destroy the paper trail.

As Letterman pointed out... shouldn't his VP candidate carry on the campaign while McCain "Takes care of business"?

If she can't... how can we expect her to fill in for McCain if he gets elected President?!

More Spore

Kind of stuck in a 'Dark Crystal' style with spore... and having fun with it. =)

Scroll through the above to see various critters I've made if you're interested. =)

Let Lying Dogs Sleep

The Republican party has gone insane.

They condemn Liberals... but grant unchecked liberties to wall streeters.

They claim to be conservative... but squander trillions on war, earmarks and bailouts.

Our government is neither 'smaller' now, nor less costly than before.

But... American's love to watch a good train wreck, which is why I'm convinced that Obama hasn't got a chance in hell of getting elected. This Palin/McCain fiasco will win the day.

Comedians will be the only ones with guaranteed jobs... until the First Amendment follows the rest of the Bill of Rights into obscurity.

Over Time

I'm decent at remembering where I know someone from, even if I tend to be very average about remembering their name.

Today, however, I was asked "Where do I know you from" by a young man operating a cash register.

I had no clue.

He had the kind of eyes that I would not quickly forget, so I assumed I didn't know him and he must have mistaken me for someone else.

Then he remembered where he knew me from.

He lived with his dad next door to me (2000-2003ish) and must have been just starting high school. Everything about his face seemed different... except his grin.

I always get a kind of temporal vertigo when I run into an adult that I last saw as a child. I feel like I've jumped forward in time quite abruptly.

It was very cool to run into him again, and I hope his dad is doing well. The neighborhood hasn't been the same since they moved away.

Super Sporific

I've been playing Spore since it arrived this Thursday evening. Above you see my first three to reach the Space Exploration Stage, each along different tactics: Religion, War and Economic.

The game play is fun, some stages fly by to quickly, some drag a little. Chief complaint is not being able to reverse the up/down controls. The "SIM-speak" the creatures yabber in while in the Tribal Stage cracks me up every time.

The final stage, the space exploration part, seems endless and diverse, from diplomacy to colonization and terraforming, trade to conquest, improving your ship and fleet as you advance.

I've already run into creatures created by several real-world friends at various stages in the game. Sadly, many such friend created creatures went the way of extinction. They will be missed. (Mainly because they were tasty.)

Never forget how the Republicans used 9/11:

... to bully the Democrats into silence for four years.

... to invade Iraq.

... to spy without oversight into the private lives of Americans.

... to suspend The Great Writ of Habeus Corpus.

... to get re-elected by claiming they alone can save us from another 9/11.

... to violate the Geneva convention and institute the practice of torture.

... etc etc etc.

9/11 gave the weak Bush administration strength it did not come by honestly. And they abused it more ways than we may ever know. Those abuses of power will most certainly go on, unpunished, if this country elects McCain/Palin.

Lake of Fire

I can't describe how much I dislike the idea of Sarah Palin as Vice President.

Can we please pick leaders that take Christian End-of-Times scripture with a bit of salt, instead of working to bring about the rapture?

She is not a "Maverick". She's a loose cannon, with the words "Holy War" scribbled all over it.
