The kind of intense hyper-conformist mentality necessary for success INSIDE a political party ensures that only the dullest, obscenely boring, blatantly gray men ever become politicians. Except for Bill Clinton.

Anyone identifying themselves as smart invariably IS NOT.
"You must remember this, a kiss is still a
kiss". Your romance is Casablanca. A
classic story of love in trying times, chock
full of both cynicism and hope. You obviously
believe in true love, but you're also
constantly aware of practicality and societal
expectations. That's not always fun, but at
least it's realistic. Try not to let the Nazis
get you down too much.

Saw 12 Monkeys again last night. Terry Gilliam is such a cool storyteller, I like to think that if I was a director that's how I would do it, loud , garish, fast, complex, like a 19th century bordello decorated by a genius (if slightly nuts) madame. I remember how amused my mom was by Brad Pitt's performance when we first saw the movie, we'd seen Monkeys and Kalifornia at about the same time. I miss her so much.

Note to self: Heineken does not go well with mentholated cigarettes.
I need to strike while the iron is hot and let the chips fall where they may, if only because a stitch in time saves nine. Otherwise my goose is cooked.

Found this guy's work via a certain violent virago's site.
Of the blogging software I've usedBlosxom is the easiest to set up if you are thinking of trying to set something up on your own server, I say "easy" because I've been able to do it. Next in line would be Pmachine then Grey Matter, which was harder, but if I could do it so probably could your average 8 year-old. I still haven't gotten Movable Type to work, though.

Let me tell you who Sean Paul is. He's the Vanilla Ice of the Jamaican music industry. He has zero credibility as a real performer, he's a rich boy in the ghetto school where Beenie Man, Bounty Killa and Elephant Man are the real men. He tried to rough up his image a little bit by cursing on stage at Sum Fest. Most people saw right through it, and still see him as a pretender. He is no 50 Cent, almost certainly hasn't ever seen an illegal gun or a rock of crack in his life.
So you have this woman who looks like one of Anna Nicole Smith's relatives i.e. no teeth, living in a grungy trailer home, she has 8 cats, showers twice a week. She is in her 30s and has NO teeth. But she assumes that every male foreigner (or person she thinks is a foreigner) she encounters is going to hit on her for a visa or money. Do people really want visas that badly? Swimming across sewage, perhaps, walking across a desert, maybe, trying to make it up from Cuba in a fucking truck with oil drums tied to it, I can see that, marrying Gabby Hayes in drag, no.
