ok, this is now the 3rd time i’ve started this post today; blogger has been pissing me off – it’s crashed 3 times. fuckin’ blogger.

knee update: off crutches (thank god). still got a bit of a limp, but it’s getting better everyday. the weird thing about my knee is it feels completely removed from my body. almost like i’m experiencing the knee remotely. it still doesn’t do what i want it to do (sitting cross legged for example) but it’s getting there. the doc says these feelings will continue on and off for about 6 months or so and i should have reasonably full mobility back within a month.

i’ll be happy when that happens.

finally, the truth.

from the current issue of gq’s interview with sarah silverman:

gq: so hillary clinton for president, then?
ss: i’m more of the barack obama camp.

gq: why obama?
ss: oh, not for any real, intellectual reason. just for the same reason real people make their decisions – i saw him on letterman and i thought he was awesome.

i’ve often thought that people really tend to just make their political decisions on something as influential as a gut response. there are exceptions of course, (i’m sure alexander over at voenix rising and mike at lolife/ are in the other camp, the one where you weigh all the options and make a truly intellectual decision), but i think most poor slobs like me make it on a base response to something.

nice to see someone admit it in the press though.

just a a reminder.

before there was the whole pope shredding thing on snl and the marriage to god and the divorce from god and the other kooky happenings there was:

a fucking brilliant debut album that still resonates today.

Love that album. Strangely enough, I had a very brief, drunken conversation just last night with someone at the Lantern about Sinead O’Connor ripping up the pope’s picture. This guy (a friend of mine, actually) started talking shit about her and my response (as well as I can remember it) was, “Sinead O’Connor is fucking awesome, so fuck the pope and fuck you. Now shut the fuck up.”

I stand by my drunken statement.

And don’t have what you do not want.

It’s a great album actually. Her angst is so cute, it’s hard to take her serious…ever.

She’s just a little koosh ball of angst Sinead is.
