  1. bill hicks:
    Genius. Never to be eclipsed.
    Comedy can change the world.
  2. conspiracy:
    Not any specific one, the concept itself. The hidden, the man behind the man. Hand in hand with my interest in “latent and manifest structure. Why things are so, and why we think they are so.
    Leads into fertile realms such as the process of belief, taboo and those who break it, secret societies.
    “Nothing is true, everything is permissible.”
    “Nothing is impossible, just highly improbable.”
    Wilhelm Reich, Nikola Tesla, the Grassy Knoll, Eco’s Foucault’s Pendulum, P2, the Flat Earth Theory. Heady, heady stuff.
    Yes, we are being lied to. Or do we just believe that because we need to name our fear?
  3. downtown los angeles:
    45% pavement, if I recall.
    The downtown that will forever thrive in two years.
    The only place in the world you can build a two hundred million dollar skyscraper and it will go unnoticed.
    Downtown is pure mystery and undefined territory, not the center of anything.
    Fight Club was shot all along the fringes of downtown, and it captures the place’s unease and ambivalence.
    Embodies the old concept of the “sublime.”
    The single most expensive piece of property in the world is here. What it is says everything about the world today.
    Go down the rabbit hole, see why HTML is so important. It’s a repository that reconfigures almost every bit of fringeana. You could spend hours there crossing the same path, but the choice is yours whether to take it.
  5. iconoclasm:
    Who knows if the rules are valid if no one breaks them?
    What does the past have to do with today?

My days of  world-dominating Super-Villainy are drawing closer… My vision is almost in sight!

(Insert maniacal laugh here)

Remember the part of Borat where the fratboys make jackasses of themselves? Where they say hateful and despicable things?
Well, it seems from now on you’ll only be remembering it. Because a judge ordered Sascha Baron Cohen to cut it from the movie.
Score: Assholes 1 – First Amendment 0.
Man, if there were only a way to make those guys bear some kind of scarlet letter, stand as an example to bigots everywhere. The movie did that. Damn.

Also, listening to the President’s press conference this morning it occured to me. If a president EVER uses the phase “How Come” in public, they should be outta the “President Club.”

Gee, thanks for representing America so well, sir. That’s insult to injury, first you go fucking up the planet and fucking up your own country, and then you don’t even have the decency be erudite about it.


Update 12.14.2006 – In a surprise turn, the score from the Assholes v. First Amendment competition has swung back to Assholes 0 – First Amendment 1, as a judge has now overturned their suit. Thought I’d clarify.

The song Beehiver II by this band, Serena-Maneesh kinda sounds like a lo-fi Ministry on PCP…
So it’s punishing…
and really good.

Of course, they’re from Norway…
And judging from the main-page picture, the band looks like they’re actually on PCP…

If they ever make any more Firefly related movies, etc; may I suggest Beehiver II as the theme song for the Reavers?
