Heloooooo awesome horoscope!

The United Nations has declared that 2011 will be the International Year of Chemistry -- a time to honor the role chemistry plays in our lives. Meanwhile, you Sagittarians will be celebrating your own personal Year of Chemistry, although in a different sense of the word -- the sense that means natural attraction, spontaneous connection, intuitive allure, and uncanny synchronicity. Don't let this abundance of grace make you overconfident, and don't just sit back and let it run wild. Be a master chemist intent on rigorously cultivating the very best experiments.

Mercury is now out of retrograde! Shadow period ends on Sunday, and any malfunctions of your operating systems after that are, I'm afraid, no one's fault but your own.

Carry on!

Thank you, that is all.

Today is the first day of the rest of your Mercury in retrograde-free week.

Mind the shadow period, but otherwise you crazy cats have fun. ;)

Ethan can't give me a ride home from game (just got a text from him, like, now) so I'm hoping someone else can?

Cookies and hugs?

Gossip and cookies?

Hugs and gas money?

Combine these things into a pleasing arrangement! I needs a ride home!

EDITED TO ADD: Has ride with Chuck & Amber Clare, thanks folks!
theworldahead: (chaos?)

While I technically have a car, I REALLY do not feel comfortable taking it out to game yet - the roads get pretty dodgy, and I am just not good enough at driving to make it anything other than an exercise in nail-biting terror.

Can has ride? As usual I will pay for gas, provide snacks and hilarious gossip. I get off work at 5 in the Eastlake area of Seattle.

EDITED TO ADD: I'm all set, thanks folks!

Merc in retrograde shadow period starts on Sunday, retrograde itself starts on the 18th and goes until the 11th.

Hang on to your hats, kiddos.

(Stolen from Slog, who stole it from Boing Boing)

Phillip Pullman (best known for the His Dark Materials series) has a new book out called The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ, and was asked why he'd chosen such a title when it ran the risk of offending readers. He had this to say,

"It was a shocking thing to say and I knew it was a shocking thing to say. But no one has the right to live without being shocked. No one has the right to spend their life without being offended. Nobody has to read this book. Nobody has to pick it up. Nobody has to open it. And if you open it and read it, you don't have to like it. And if you read it and you dislike it, you don't have to remain silent about it. You can write to me, you can complain about it, you can write to the publisher, you can write to the papers, you can write your own book. You can do all those things, but there your rights stop. No one has the right to stop me writing this book. No one has the right to stop it being published, or bought, or sold or read. That's all I have to say on that subject."

Boo-mothereffin'-YAH, that's a Hell of an off-the-cuff response! Video of his speech is embedded below.

Clare and I sat down with popcorn and snark to watch the Rifftrax of Twilight: New Moon, The Moon is Even More Spooky Than Before, For Realsies which mainly stars Kristin Stewart's twitchy, mumbly neuroses and Taylor Launtner's abs. A+ on the abs, would watch again, D - - on everything else.

As per usual, Rifftrax made it hilarious with gems like, "Kissing is like wifi, just get it in the general area and it counts.". I'm embedding a Youtube video so y'all can get a feel for it but, I assure you, it's frickin' BRILLIANT. Anything that makes the Twilight series watchable has got to be good!

Fun times!

Went out with my friend John last night to see the Oscar nominated animated shorts at the Varsity, and it was totally worth the price of admission. They included the 5 nominees, and also 3 additional that were in the "top 10" shortlist. There was a new Wallace & Grommit (OMGYAY), which I think you can get on Netflix, called "A Matter of Loaf or Death" which of course I have much love for, and "The Kinematograph" from Poland was just devestatingly beautiful...all of the people have these fine whorls and eddies to their skin, like woodgrain. Really stood out, though in seeing which other shorts made it to the final nominees list I can see why it wasn't included.

Basically, go watch it if you have a little time to kill & would like to see some awesome animation.

More at Symphony of Science.

Brilliant and beautiful.

Occasionally I think life could be better - I sometimes feel alone, I don't have as much money as I'd like, and on and on and on...and the wants and recriminations pile up and sink me down and then I remember...

I have my life.
More than I could ever eat or drink.
The right to speak my mind.

I have so so much that I take for granted every single fucking day, and it's times like this this that I can do nothing but weep. Tomorrow will be different, tomorrow I will be less wounded but tonight I will quote Pynchon and say,

"Listen to this mock-angel singing, let your communion be at least in listening, even if they are not spokesmen for your exact hopes, your exact, darkest terror, listen."

Stephen Fry gets DOWN DOWN DOWN on the Catholic Church. Goddamn, I would curl up on his feet and listen to him talk.

(Spoilers, if you suck)

Deadwood Season 3 outtakes, NWS for cussing and nudity and general tomfoolery.

The best part is right around 7:40 when Ian McShane breaks character for just a second and your brain goes, "Where the hell did that British accent come from?!"

Congratulations, cocksuckers!!

I am, as y'all know, searching for a car.

My BFF had a Honda del Sol that we drove through the Arizona desert one warm night - good little car, cute, good memories attached, so I've been looking at those.

Imagine, then, my surprise when I came across this car and this one.

Notice anything, umm...similar? I'll give you a second.


Ha! No internet fakery allowed! I took screenshots and then emailed both dealerships saying " don't actually have this car, do you?" and we'll see what kind of nonsense is in my inbox in the morning.

Oh, how I do love jackasses who haven't worked out Google yet...

It is being liveblogged all over the place - I'm a little pissed they're not allowing the videos to go on YouTube, but information will find a way.

I read the opening statements and teared up a bit - though it makes me angry, and confused, to think that we need to go through something like this in order to get motherfucking civil rights, will win out. I believe that - I have to, or none of this crazy world makes sense.
