thoughts for the morning

More lines.

luvmoose is here for the weekend! And there was much rejoicing. :)

From The National Republic (a publication about which I have very mixed feelings, but I continue my online subscription because I often get unique points of view; I wish they had Salon's mixed pay/advertising model, though):

"If Cheney had explained the delay by saying, "You know, I was distressed at the time and didn't really think things through," it's hard to imagine that anyone would have blamed him. But Cheney seemed determined to convince Hume and everyone else that he knew exactly what he was doing. Which is entirely typical of this White House. Jazz musicians sometimes hit a wrong note and keep on hitting it in order to make the flub seem intentional. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't. But the point is that they're welcome to try, since human history isn't much affected by such musical decisions. Also, their sets don't last eight years."


Sing it, T.A. Frank.

What I am growing to understand is that not one member of this cabal will speak the truth even when it is simpler than concocting a lie. They are so far stepped into the culture of falseness that it simply does not occur to them to speak truth. I am no longer sure they are capable of knowing truth when it appears before them. Their mouths open and lies flow like vomit from their gaping maws. They are a vile bunch. :(

Re: T
Yes. It's like lying has become a habit, a reflex, and they no longer know how to do anything else.

The problem is, we used to let them get away with it. So now when we don't (but we still do, far too often), they behave [even more] like spoiled children. Bleah.

    Ooooh, I would totally be down with an all-BioWare Kiss Battle, that sounds like so much fun. I would totally prompt for some older IPs like Jade Empire, too :D

    Give me notice and I'll go spam the…

    I've already gotten at least one request to make it an all-Bioware canons kiss battle, which might encourage more participation given the current state of hype for Andromeda... :)

    If I go for it, I…

    I'd love one, and I'm sure the gang over on dragon_age would be (although they're we're all hyping up over Mass Effect Andromeda right now, but still worth posting a…

    I'm concerned and I don't primarily use DW. I am thinking about backing up my content there, but I'm just not sure about how it will work out. I do need to get on this, though.
