If you haven't already heard of her, I present to you, Camille:

Not going to be everyone's cup of tea, but I think she's nifty.  (Found her while looking for music to listen to while taking an online French course.)

Thanks for writing this. 

Once caught myself trying to figure out which was more discouraging: organizers being rounded up the night before a protest, or kettling and mass caging for everyone involved and uninvolved.  Coin toss.

It took decades of officials and experts continually reiterating how apathetic people are.  It wears me out after awhile, and I start feeling it.  Takes work not to.  Especially when hope gets more and more indistinguishable from faith.

Nothing to add but to say I've felt like this for years.  Excellent writing, demo.

Hoops was right, by the way.  I was in fact deep, deep inside Rob Ford's belly.  Working within and against the system.  He wasn't drunk.  That was me.

[schmaltzy] And I like you both, too. Often want to write or reply to something, I'm just not much of a web-talker and its been a shit year. I'll try to post more often. [/schmaltzy]

Surfacing to ask.  Does anyone know yet: Is there some reason they're choosing not to expand the nation-wide anti child pron blacklisting project they've had on the go for the past decade?  Are they declaring Project Cleanfeed a failure?  (That would be big news on this side of the pond too.  Not that this isn't.)  Or is this that expansion - going from blacklist to auto-filter - and they're just not referring to Cleanfeed anymore?

Also, anyone know which "family friendly" filtering company is getting recc'd for this contract?

:mittens:  Good rant.

I haven't heard much about them, but "Wild Rose" scares the crap out of me.  Not quite as much as those "Real Women" who ran their asses and mouths off to cut funding to women's programs, "Heritage" anti-immgrunt nuts, or those election fraud douches...  And then, your OP explains that.

Let us know who the new Rular of Teh Tar Sands is.  Will it be waspy-boob-wheels or the other thing..?
LOVE this, Twid!

"Strengths" was lovely.  I really liked it.

And the shit-eating-grinning cat next to the Gaiman-Pratchett quote. :D

The mirror's one of my favourite Invisibles quotes, and your Fanon page is excellent.  Both getting used this week for postering as is.  Thankee  :)

Also also, whoever got butthurt about the phrase "stomp a hole in their asses" needs to change their diapers.

This is truth.  I'd go back and edit the note out of my post, but it's better to leave the derp hanging out.

"Stomping a hole in someone's ass" means "to beat them up".

I hear you.  It was the combination of stomping holes in asses and fucking their shit (was not saying that's what was meant).

Quote from: LMNO, PhD (life continues) on January 20, 2012, 05:21:57 PM
Wait.  "Stomped a hole in someone's ass"  is a rape metaphor?  Do you also think someone's a homophobe if they say, "you suck"?

YES!  No one is allowed to use words EVAR AGGIN because sex is bad and everything rapey all the time!!!  And so begins my tyrannical regime of fascistic political correctness!  BWAhahahahaha!!!  Feer meh!

I had no idea that's how I came across.  A whole mess of stupid.

For the record Da6, it might seem totally semantic now, but I didn't call you homophobic and I didn't intend to either.  What I mentioned at the end of my post was one macho-football sentence out of the entire piece and my specific trouble getting past it – which I now own was ridiculously douchy.  Not that you do or should care, but I think you're a good egg and I like you.  I read your Shangri-la thread every time you update and enjoy your writing, even though I don't usually comment.

Of course, if you feel insulted, attacked or offended in any way, I've read enough of your writing to assume you'll have no problem letting me know. :)

Apologies for the threadjack.


I wish she was an exception, but I keep encountering this very specific brand of Oppressed-Rich-Kid.  Not that they have to have cash as a prerequisite.  Anyone digging themselves into 10s of thousands of $s worth of debt with no reason for the education other than "I'm going to study the counter-culture for a living and that makes me totally oppressed!  Tweet me back!" ...  :?

Aht.  I can't pretend to understand any of it.  And I'm pretty sure navcat's not talking about these douchenozzles.

Nav:  Your "crusty" is a well to do kid that tweets every time he scores a 'za in a dumpster dive.  Whose brain would explode if she had to actually make a living off other people's refuse for a living, yes? 

(Liking your upside-the-head suggestion, Rog.  Believe me, I'd love to.  For the blankie alone.)
[Next day sober edit-delete. Classmate and departmental surveillance is likely.  What I wrote was too specific and the professional sufferer in question could easily be identified.  Yak's comment further down the thread was a good reminder to watch my back.  Don't worry, imaginary reader-person, you didn't miss anything.  Also, I am a giant douche for editing this post.]

I had no idea who this guy was until Nigel linked to some songs in the Lupus-Youtube thread last week.  Seen his name pop up in a couple of online places I frequent, but the combination of not knowing his name and the fundie overtones of every thread title kept me from caring even the tiniest bit.  "What's a tebow?"  Just assumed it was another internet meme, but one for fundies.  Therefore, no clicking through.

Now, all the threads about him make me think of the doc Jesus Camp.  Those kids grew up and they just know God wants them to win the superbowl.

Maybe he'll be president someday?  Will it be between him and Arnie?

What's a bit interesting at the moment is that - because I don't jive with the xtian world his fan base is coming from and don't give two fucks about sports - I'm able to see the way the media is chasing his popularity.  The more people talk about him online, the more "legit" mass media news outlets talk about his performance.  We've been seeing it for ages, but it's always interesting to watch news orgs chase people's attention around.  Easier when it's something you don't personally give a shit about, or better, something I find it easy to be critical about.

What I mean to say is, when the mass media is reporting about something I care about for the exact same reason (people seem to care about this thing according to our internet-dometor so let's up our readership by writing a story about it), I'm less likely to see the eyeball-chasing.  I get sucked in, in a way that I don't with stuff like this Tebow person.

Just thoughts.  Thanks for writing this - it helped me get my head around "WhoeverMania and why it matters."

... was when we stomped a hole in LSU's ass using our shitty third string QB right after Katrina fucked their shit up.

Very off topic, but maybe you care about this: Speaking as a faggy dyke, it takes serious suspension of disbelief (ie. "that's not what they meant, ... just a kid, that's just the way sports people talk, they don't know any better, they don't seriously think about raping gay boys and what's a QB and what was that about Katrina") to get past sentences like this to read the rest of your post.  I stopped exactly here twice and would've missed what you had to say if I didn't come back a third time and skip this bit.  I'm not saying "Be moar politically correct now cus ahm so sens-s'tive."  Just pointing out where you lost me.
