DM to the Rescue

People are people so why should it be that you and I should get along so awfully?

It's a fair question, I suppose.
I don't know any illegal immigrants personally. Which is probably what makes it easier for me to think that they are causing all these problems with my "way of life."

But are they?

What are the major problems in my life right now (and are they really that major...really?)?
  • High gas prices (because I drive 12 miles round trip to work every day...and I hate spending $30, every 2 weeks to fill up).
  • A backyard that needs serious landscaping (attributed to my own laziness last fall).
  • Not being where I want to be in my filmmaking career (attributed to just slacking).
  • Owing money to the gubbment (I love tax season).
  • Bills. far as I can tell, none of these problems can be attributed to illegal immigration. So how do I really feel about it and why?

F*** if I know.

To be honest, I really don't have much of an opinion on it. There is no direct impact from this situation in my life that I can see right now.

But...apparently it's a big enough problem to protest. People want to build a wall to keep the 'illegals' out (or is it to keep us in?)

I know, I know what I posted the other day about it. You don't have to remind me...I wrote it. But I honestly don't think I care at the moment about it.

I have the same feelings about the issue of illegal immigration that I do about most politics. Which is a decided feeling of "I don't really care." When an illegal immigrant comes to my front door and wants to move in my house and take food off of my table and the government lets him without giving me a say in it, then I suppose I'll care.

But here's the thing....that's not happening. And I don't see it happening anytime soon.

And Bush is not Hitler. He's just a stupid man in an unfortunate position of power (or at the very least a smart man doing stupid things in plain sight of the world).

Have I gone soft? No. I just don't really care. I mean, I thought I did. And then I read some posts by people who actually had a vested interest in this and I got to thinking that my ranting was just a bit of bullshite. When push comes to shove, though, it doesn't really bother me.

My biggest daily worry right now is whether or not I'm going to have enough flex points to eat the fudgesicle during this week's episode of House.

So on that note, I know it's past lent and all, but I think I'll give up politics for lent next year (And just get a head start on it now).

peace out.

Out of Sorts

Not sure what my deal is today. I got up this morning to go for a walk and it was spitting rain, but no biggie. My thriftstore Nikes were kind of hurting my feet, so that didn't help. But it felt good to go for the walk (other than the hurting feet). And it's all going well...and then I get into work and just turn into PMS-Man.  I don't know what my deal is. I just feel bitchy this morning and I'm not sure why. Yeah. That's all I got.

Marriage Material??

I had a friend call me today, fuming. I consider myself a good listener on most days. Considering that I was out of town on a work trip and doing absolutely nothing in my hotel room, my listening game was on-point.

She recounted the exchange that sent her off. I will spare you some of the more personal details, but the gist was, at one point, the dude-bro she was talking to flat out told her that she wasn’t marriage material.

Torn between wanting to be a supportive friend and being completely gobsmacked, I felt her frustration. No. That’s not quite right. I didn’t feel the same frustration she felt. I’m approaching what some consider middle age. I’m white. I’m primarily interested in women. Oh, and I have a penis., I can never truly feel the same frustration she was feeling. Or an anger that comes from the same place her anger came from. No matter how in touch I am witn my feminine side (whatever the fuck that actually means).

Instead, the frustration and anger I was feeling w…

A Tribute to Limozeen may recall that I recently got my very first P.O.S. Electric Guitar back. And you may also recall the folly with the "amp" from Freecycle.

And now, dear readers, I will let you in on the dramatic conclusion to those harrowing tales.

From Bob at work I recently got a Vox Pathfinder 15amp which looks a little (exactly) like this:
I have to say, the amp freakin' rocks. It's got built in tremelo, and this killer overdrive feature which makes the thing sound crunchy as all get out.

So tonight, I decided to try it all out. The amp, the POS Guitar, the FAB distortion pedal (purchased the day of the Sam Ash incident), the Alesis drum machine and the Alesis io2.

The results are just...well, funny.

I give you the theme song to the soon to be hit WB-Series, "My 'Tard Husband." I call it "shortbus." Take a listen here. It's about 3MB in size and 4:14 of unbearable cheese (and the guitars get markedly louder at about the minute mark-you've been …
