Sports and Wars, a History Lesson
People who don’t like sports probably don’t realize how meaningful these games are. For example, this game. Kansas and Missouri. Since Missouri is leaving the conference (which is like a group of teams), they won’t play each other anymore after this year. So, why is that significant? Everything is in their names. The Kansas Jayhawks versus the Missouri Tigers. A Jayhawk is not...
The Lorax: Blowing Smogulous Smoke →
Fans of The Lorax have raised concerns that the new big-screen version is neglecting the environmental message of the beloved Dr. Seuss book. The movie doesn’t come out until March 2, but the initial trailer and promotional materials ignited a round of complaints on the web. Now people are having a (rather justified) heart attack about the fact that The Lorax is now being used to...

Question for the candidates
“Hi, my name’s Jackie Bob Jones-Mulligan from Town That Looks Like It Survived a Nuclear Apocalypse, Arizona and I was wondering what the candidates’ solution was to the problem of nuclear-armed Iranian-Mexican illegal immigrant abortion doctors who want to impose socialist tyranny in America through a government takeover of government.”

The word is “dammit”. Just because ‘damn’ and ‘damnation’ have N’s in them doesn’t mean ‘dammit’ does. Get it right. You look ridiculous. Search “damnit” on Google and let me know what they ask you if you meant.
Figured I'd write this down since it's still fresh
Just had the craziest dream about zombies or demons who self-replicate really fast when they have sex. Like new ones pop out almost instantaneously as babies and then turn into full-grown ones in a matter of minutes or seconds. I thought I had crushed them all in this pit in the basement when I lowered this cinderblock on top of them, but when I got to the floor above, there was one girl in a bed...

Things that are on my mind
Thinking about the upcoming college football season. What it’s going to be like. So many unknown factors. Health. Job. Why I’m not comfortable. Because I’m living where I’m living and working where I’m working. Nothing like the peace and quiet of downtown in the middle of the night. I want that. That’s truly sublime. That’s something worth striving for....

This is a real tragedy. We used to have such awesome, imaginative animated films; cult classics like “The Secret of Nihm” and “Watership Down”. Now all that seems to be made is computer animated films like “The Lorax”. Don’t get me wrong, I like computer animation, but I love traditional animation. It’s easier on the eyes. It feels more organic. And...
