…WE’VE GOT MOVIE SIGN!
That’s how long it’s been since my last cigarette.
Can I have a “Woot!”?
Okay, between the Philae waking up and the New Horizons mission and the new job and a whole bunch of other things, I thought that pretty well should handle my quota for good news this summer.
Nope, here’s a goodie for everyone: Bloom County is back! And, weirdly, providing the first good reason I’ve ever seen to visit Facebook…
Not much. I’m just permanently employed for the first time in five years. Can I have a “WOOHOO!”?
I don’t often shed a tear over the news, and even more rarely one of happiness. I really hadn’t expected anything quite so sweeping; I figured there would be a narrow decision requiring states to recognize marriages performed in other states and then punting on the question of equal marriage.
There have already been marriages in downtown Columbus, right out in front of the county courthouse.
And if this isn’t a reminder of the dangers of a Republican administration next year — what kind of person do you want named to the court in case of a vacancy? Someone who believes in equal protection under the law, or another Scalia?
It’s a little weird to contemplate that when I wake up around noon, equal marriage may be the law of the land by Supreme Court decision.
It’s appalling that we can’t be sure of the outcome in this day and age. The correct decision is blindingly, agonizingly obvious, and yet we cannot be sure that the Supreme Court will reach it.
It’s my bedtime now. I really hope that when I wake up, it’s in a better, more equal country.
Funniest thing I’ve seen in a while: voice actor panels at Emerald City Comic Con where they, uh, reinterpret the Star Wars scripts. They’ve got through the first two movies; one hopes they’ll be doing ‘Jedi’ eventually (looks like they didn’t have a voice talent guest list this year). Jim Cummings’ ‘Darth Pooh’ is disturbingly hilarious. :D
Not generally work safe, once they get good and going…
I have a smartphone now.
I can’t say I actually wanted one, but for the price, I’d’ve been a fool not to get it. Android something or another. Still gettin’ used to it. It doesn’t suck, but likewise I am not (yet) overjoyed by the change. Maybe I just need to find the right app to make me go wow.
In the quest for shame that is Ohio’s inability to dispense with its obscene ban on equal marriage comes the ultimate kick in the psychological nuts: Alabama will have gay marriage before we do.
No wonder our state symbol is the buckeye — that’s fucking nuts.
I was thinking about authors whose works I prefer in adaptation to the originals, and the two writers that head that list are Shakespeare, and Lovecraft.
This promptly led to Romeo and Cthuliet. I decline to follow that thought any further. That way madness lies.
