Realized something I love about Caprica and Dollhouse, other than the contemplative exploration of the philosophical depths of science fiction - THE FEMALE CHARACTERS INTERACT WITH EACH OTHER! And not just with regards to romantic relationships with men. It's really disturbing how rare that is on television (House & Glee really need female writers)

That was a few of the scariest seconds of my life. Read an article claiming that Glee was doing a Justin Bieber episode, which would affirm every instant of shark-jumping potential the show has ever had. Thankfully it seems it's just Sam doing 1 song: which changes the issue from HORRIFYING to HILARIOUS.

Nerd thought: I love "Caprica" but I'm still disappointed they made the human forerunner to the Cylon faith straight up monotheism. That was cooler as a Cylon origination. The terrorist sect & their faith from Gemenon could have been Mithraism (referred to in Battlestar as a minority sect) and been dualists, and then the AI could have the revelatory perspective of realizing that "light" and "dark" were two sides of the same thing, and there was only One God who was God of All.

Find me a Tea Partier whose favorite President of the latter half of the 20th century was Bill Clinton and least favorite was Ronald Reagan, and I'll be willing to believe they're actually upset over deficit spending.
*I'm starting to feel bad about using this icon, I wonder if I can find or make the same one with Palin talking about "freedom"*

The Islamophobia is really getting scary right now. If the ADL really wants to draw distinction between their position & those of bigots, they need to do more to get out in front on this & stand up to the Tea Party Groups & the ACLJ on bigoted-rhetoric & attempts to legally bar the building of Mosques & Islamic Community Centers across the country. They need to call them out explicitly for it.

|Seriously, what's up with that?
I wonder if I'm less into women than I thought i was... but then I've also wondered before whether I was less into men than I thought I was.

|To anyone interested in Indie RPGs!
Hellas is an amazing game that sets Ancient Greek Epic Myth in a Space Opera. Its writers are currently trying to get its first major supplement published in full color, but they need a firm financial commitment to pull that off. Hence the above ransom. If you're interested you can pledge any amount of money, and should the total goal be met you will be rewarded (depending on the size of your donation - earning yourself a copy of the book, the original Hellas book, & more prizes at the higher levels). It's actually a pretty great deal if you want physical copies of the books. Even if you aren't that interested in the books, but want to support Indie Gaming a small donation to help reach their goal would be fantastic!

Dear god I'm going to be 25 in less than a week... where the hell was my young adulthood? Where was the sexual debauchery that you're supposed to pick up with your bisexual paganism? God damn it, this is all happening too fast.

Dear Left-Wing & Right-Wing fringes, please stop getting these concepts mixed up:
Yes, hating "Israel" itself & the associated rhetoric DOES heavily overlap with anti-semitism (or more accurately, Judenhass).
No, opposing a specific Israeli Government (or in US terms "Administration") or specific policies or specific actions DO NOT equate to Antisemitism/Judenhass.
So no, American radical-Right, I am not a self hating Jew (and the non-Jews with the audacity to claim that out of one side of your mouth while comparing Universal Healthcare to Nazism ARE
in fact Anti-semites). And no, American radical-Left, you do sometimes cross the line into Antisemitism with the anti-Israel rhetoric. Ok, got that cleared up?

There are de-barking surgeries for dogs...
"I want do something as grotesquely cruel as de-clawing, but I'm a dog owner. Is there an absurd unnecessary surgery for me?"

My hard-drive crashed. I'm only now starting to realize how much writing I've actually lost, not to mention Dr Who episodes I bought off iTunes (not nearly as important as the writing, but annoying none the less). Everything else should be freely replaceable, it will just take time.

When did I start getting depressed?
I need a life.

|That really isn't funny...
So I saw a trailer for Kevin Smith's new buddy cop movie with Bruce Willis & Tracy Morgan.
Apparently everyone involved in the movie is completely oblivious to the social context of attaching someone to the back of a car to drag them. I'm not saying it would be impossible to do some black humor race/orientation politics jokes incorporating the element - but that's clearly not what it was. It was straight up "haha! That guy's hand cuffed to back of the cop car! he's being dragged around! hahaha!"

I don't care what RTD's intent was - the Woman was Susan! The other weeping opposition figure was Romana! *sticks fingers in ears* lalalalalalalalalalalalalala!

How exactly is it possible to not include as the #1 mistake of the last decade "the decision to start a completely unprovoked war on the premise of weapons that didn't exist
, spreading the reach of Al-Qaeda in the process & drawing resources away from Afganistan allowing Al-Qaeda & the Taliban to regroup and re-entrench themselves?"
I would either go with that as #1 or Adam Lambert coming in second on American Idol, I mean WHAT THE HELL!

So I watched New Moon (bootlegged, I'm not giving money to that franchise, but i need to know what I'm railing against) and then this made me feel better:
YES THAT REALLY JUST HAPPENED!

"Gallup Daily tracking from Nov. 17-19 shows President Barack Obama’s job approval slipping to 49% for the first time in his presidency. Among post-World War II presidents, only Gerald Ford, Bill Clinton
, and Ronald Reagan
dropped below the symbolic majority approval level faster than Obama did."
So he's dropped in popularity almost as fast as the two of the most popular two-term-Presidents we've had since WW2 (possibly the two most popular, I'll need to check Eisenhower's stats as he'd be the only competition)? Not really mocking Gallup here as they're just reporting on statistics, but the way the Associated Press is acting like this is such an ominous sign for his presidency is a bit ridiculous given the aforementioned reality.
