it's relentless, invisible, indefatigable, indisputable, undeniable

Never thought I'd say this, but evidently I'm on Nicole Richie's side.

'Did Nicole Richie really send an e-mail invitation to a Memorial Day party, suggesting friends “celebrate our country by drinking massive amounts of beer”? In Touch Weekly says she did, and reports that Richie claims that she was only trying to be funny. But some found no humor in the booze reference, nor in the “joke” from the super-skinny starlet that warned: “there will be a scale at the front door. No girls over 100 pounds allowed in. Start starving yourself now.”'

I don't who "some" are, but I hope they do enough quiet contemplation on Memorial Day to make up for the rest of us gettin' our drink awwwwnnnnn.

down with the moral majority 'cause i wanna be the minority

So, it's Nutter. Hope he does well; I'll have to remember not to look shifty on the street.

This Republican debate tonight was gut-wrenching at times. It's just scary how much people want to hear simplistic buzz-phrases, and how the slightest hint of real nuance (As in: Ron Paul saying the September 11 attacks didn't happen only because we're free and happy and the terrorist jihadist suicidal martyrdom-seeking death-loving caliphate-builders hate that. Not as in: Rudy Giuliani's abortion "position.") was anathema to what seemed like every person in that hall.

the sheriff says 'boy, i'm gonna watch you die,' with nineteen minutes to go

Now that I have my acoustic guitar, I have no excuse not to create, and so to politics.

Everybody in the mayor's race is psycho in some way, it seems. Chaka Fattah wants to slap GPS tracking devices on elementary school kids' backpacks, in case they go missing. Mike Nutter wants curfews, and cops actively stopping and frisking people they think look suspicious. Tommy Knox thinks Harrisburg will fork over a couple hundred million in school funding if he asks nicely. (He could do that himself and cut out the middleman if he wanted.) Bob Brady wants to put armed cops in some schools. (Because that could never go wrong - they're police officers.) And Dwight Evans thinks he has a chance. Actually, he's probably my favorite, if for no other reason than he's single and it's tough for unmarried people to get elected, seems like. Because, like, he's not married, so how could he care about children?

and he carries a reminder of every glove that laid him down or cut him till he cried out

I can't objectively say whether or not I thought Spider-Man 3 was good because of my uncontrollable man-crush on James Franco.

Rudy Giuliani is fucked.

Mitt Romney is smooth criminal.

before you leave i need to know you won't give in until you know that you don't want it

I'm pleased to report that My Chemical Romance definitively does suck.

Occasionally I become concerned that my liking or disliking of an individual song is flavored by my perception of the band by which it's performed. While I'm sure this is true to an extent, I heard a song on the radio tonight that I hated long before the DJ said "'Famous Last Words.' By My Chemical Romance."

So that was nice to know.
