do you know that almost all my traffic (which is considerable) derives from searches for "naked nun"? this one image, which i just grabbed off the internet, is better than anything i ever said or thought. everyone's all: i wanna fuck a nun!
ok i've been wondering what to say. israel is reducing a nation to rubble, supposedly because two soldiers are missing. the bush admin must be completely freaking out, because the apocalypse is upon them. they support the end of all things, i guess.
remember robert wexler? the "cocaine is fun" dude? anyway i saw him on the wolf blitzer show saying that any hint that the israelis intentionally targeted un observers (hints made by kofi annan) were totally irresponsible and encouraging to the terrorists. this from the guardian:
Jane Lute, the assistant secretary general for peacekeeping, told
the UN security council that the base came under close Israeli fire 21
times - including 12 hits within 100 metres and four direct hits - from
1.20pm until contact was lost with the four peacekeepers inside at
Ms Lute said the peacekeeping force had protested to the
Israeli army after each firing incident. The UN's deputy secretary
general, Mark Malloch Brown, and Ms Lute herself also made several
calls to Israel's mission to the UN "reiterating these protests and
calling for an abatement of the shelling", she said.
this stuff is so great. hand a toddler a tootsie pop. then take it away and shoot a picture. i think the people who object cannot be parents, who of necessity see this kind of thing every few minutes for years. anyway it's very existential: tells you something fundamental about the human condition.
free melanie martinez! i think it's sad what happened to her. cause she's awful cute and i've been watching her introduce dragon tales etc to my daughter in a very comfiorting way for some time. the technicality of her virginity can't really make a difference. you can't really delete the fact that adults are taking care of children.
well, this is kinda sad. i've spent countless hours with my daughter checking her out on sprout. she's great; who else to introduce dragon tales? ah well. i'm not a technical virgin myself, having contracted a venerial disease from my wife at age 47.
this is just moving chairs around on the deck of the titanic. if all goes according to plan, the violence will just commute back to the suburbs. you'd think at some point these folks would realize that half an ass ain't no ass at all and move all-in.
just wanta say a belated bye bye to charles smith, the guitar player of kool and the gang. i saw the band, let's see, 1983, at the "laurel super music fest" at laurel racetrack, md, with, among others, chaka khan and marvin gaye. i was covering the show for the baltimore city paper. it was afuckinhundreddegrees, and people were literally dropping and getting ambulanced off. but anyway, kool and the gang - at that time riding very high in the jt era ('get down on it' etc) was the straight-up tightest band i ever saw (and i saw everybody). they were fucking amazing, with the full horn section, giving everything on every song, playing with a kind of absolute improvised perfection. it was just one of those things you remember a quarter century later, when you've forgotten everything else.
did you know there were classified blogs? anyway this is an interesting story, about a woman fired from the cia for blogging against torture (she blogged as 'cc').
It started, she said, something like this: "Waterboarding is Torture and Torture is Wrong."And
it continued, she added, with something like this: "CC had the sad
occasion to read interrogation transcripts in an assignment that should
not be made public. And, let's just say, European lives were not
saved." (That was a jab at Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's trip
to Europe late last year when she defended U.S. policy on secret
detentions and interrogations.)
that implies that there have been deaths by torture at cia facilities in europe. anyone surprised by that, or by attempts to suppress knowledge of it, hasn't been watching the monsters that rule our nation.
dig this headline: "In Mideast Strife, Bush Sees a Step to Peace." perhaps when everyone is dead, peace will be achieved in the region. the key to peace in any given situation is total continuous violence. this remarkable approach is ilustrated by the post with the image below.
to be honest, i say get over it. surely we are not in a position to carp about somebody cussing, particularly about kofi annan or hezbollah. and the merkel thing was sweet: i don't think a single woman i know would have been offended by an informal massage. just because we don't like gwb doesn't mean we should reject, in him, signs of actual humanity. pray for their multiplication, rather.
