LJ Downtime

<1>Obama and many other Democrats won! Feels weird to have one's voice heard after a long time of feeling like no one was listening. I celebrated election night, but somehow have had no desire to celebrate further or talk politics until Jan. 20th.

<2>Well, ACNW 2008 took up a great deal of my creative brain. Have been involved in serious creative endeavors since.

<3>Then I discovered Facebook, which relates to item #2 above, and is addictive for instant feedback.

<4>It may be some time before I post to LJ regularly again.

Meme Thing, You Make My Book Sing

* Grab the nearest book.
* Open the book to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post the text of the next two to five sentences in your journal along with these instructions.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

"She smiled at Reuben and then at Louise; they were such a good-looking couple. Ponter was seated next to her; she would have taken his hand if it wasn't wrapped in a bloody glove."

Yes, this is actually from my closest book. I have a nearly paperless cubicle, and the closest was the novel I'm reading right now. It's called "Hybrids," the third book of Robert J. Sawyer's marvelous "The Neanderthal Parallax" trilogy. The "bloody glove" isn't as menacing as it sounds: Ponter, like all Neanderthals in the book, use their hands to eat, but for sanitary reasons use an "eating glove."

My Color...

you are mediumseagreen
#3CB371

Your dominant hues are cyan and green. Although you definately strive to be logical you care about people and know there's a time and place for thinking emotionally. Your head rules most things but your heart rules others, and getting them to meet in the middle takes a lot of your energy some days.

Your saturation level is medium - You're not the most decisive go-getter, but you can get a job done when it's required of you. You probably don't think the world can change for you and don't want to spend too much effort trying to force it.

Your outlook on life is brighter than most people's. You like the idea of influencing things for the better and find hope in situations where others might give up. You're not exactly a bouncy sunshine but things in your world generally look up.

In Remembrance

So here we are, seven years after the World Trade Center towers fell. We’ve lost so much more since that day than just the 2976 souls who died at ground zero, the Pentagon, and elsewhere that day.

Make no mistake: it was a terrible, tragic loss of life. And yet, for perspective, in the month of January 2001 alone there were 3,010 traffic deaths in this nation. That’s one month. For the calendar year 2001: 43,788. And we didn’t bomb Toyota.

Seven years after the attacks on New York and the Pentagon – attacks planned by a Saudi and carried out by 15 Saudis and four others from Egypt, Lebanon and the UAE – the U.S. has spent $577 BILLION of your children’s money on the invasion and occupation of Iraq, and displaced millions in the Middle East. Over 4,000 U.S. troops have been killed (the government won’t even count civilian casualties; it’s somewhere between 95,000 and 1 million) and Habeas Corpus is all but dead at home.

And what is the current state of our politics? A candidate for the Presidency from the current ruling party – whose own post-9/11 definition of “torture” would render his experience in Vietnam mere “enhanced interrogation techniques” – has begun to air an entirely false, sordid and disgusting ad that in effect calls his opponent a pedophile.

I mourn.

And send what $ I can afford to progressive candidates, and speak out where I can.

Your result for Reincarnation Placement Exam...

The Pleasure Dome of Kublai Khan

44% Civilization, 60% Humanity, 32% Urbanization, 46% Danger, 66% Exoticness, 21% Chaos, 78% Hedonism.

You were a little difficult to place. You want a world that's exotic, but still very civilized and under control. And your answers indicate you don't give a fig for technology, education, urbanization and all the benefits thereof -- but you still have a great fondness for the human beings who tend to pursue these things.



Well, we have something for you that should be something of a treat. You won't get out much. But we don't think you'll mind.



In the Pleasure Dome of Kublai Khan, you are born and bred to serve pleasure all your days. Physically beautiful and mentally geared toward pure pleasure, you will spend your allotted days subjected to all manner of hedonistic play and sensual experimentation. You need never suffer a moment of pain, nor of sobriety. Cuddle up, honey, relax and enjoy yourself.



You kinky pervert.

Rock Mastery Achieved!

All it took was practice: once each at 80%, 90%, and 100% speed, and I passed "Enter Sandman." Then went on to dominate "Highway Star" (because I've been listening to Deep Purple for decades) and cruise to Medium level mastery! I loved the way that my character "Axelrod" (He looks like an S&M version of Thor) directed the pyrotechnics at the end.

Just had a great lunch at Icon Grill and am not at all concerned about the overwhelming amount of mail in my inbox.

Worked late last night on a game for Ambercon Northwest: "Professor Dworkin's Sing-Along Blog," based on Joss Whedon's excellent musical tragicomedy, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. I know I am too deep into it when I am writing original songs for the game. :]
