So I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving. I had the flu for the past week, so I did not enjoy mine. It sucked. Anyway, I saw the new James Bond flick, and it was really good. Definitely worth checking out. Daniel Craig is a good James Bond. If you don’t know who he is, check out Layercake and Munich, both very good movies.

So the new Brand New album came out last week. I have to be honest; I am having a hard time with it. I am going to give it a few more listens before I establish my opinion, but for now I suggest you spend your money on either the new album by My Chemical Romance or Rise Against.

I work overtime for the next few months so if I am silent or unavailable for a while, do not be surprised; I am working 72 hours a week with only one day off. I am going to see Primus on Sunday, and I have Monday off so maybe a new album review and a concert review, and maybe some soft and sexy poetry…maybe.

What did you learn tonight?

Breakfast Of Champions

You people amaze me. Just when you have me convinced that the people of this country are a bunch of fucking idiots, you have managed to restore a fraction of my faith in you. The elections showed something that I honestly believe most people thought impossible. I have stated over and over again that the citizens of this country are getting fed up with the lies, propaganda, scandals, and war. You people have proven me right. In what can be considered a record turnout of voters, the Democrats have taken back the house and the senate.

This is not to say that the Democrats are going to fix everything, because I honestly believe that they can’t. Bush fucked it up so much that the batch of Dem’s we have just aren’t capable of fixing it right now, and we still got Bush in the White House for two more years. But the fact that the Democrats are taking over is not what amazes me.

What amazes me is that the country has shown that they want change. When 30% of registered Republicans vote against the Republican Party that does not show betrayal; that shows disgust. They are disgusted at what their party has become and the choices that their leaders have made. What amazes me is that no matter how many lies you thrown in our face, no matter how many wars you make us fight, or how much you threaten us with fear, terrorism, and damnation by God himself, you cannot stop the people when they want change.

The people of this country, myself included, are sick and tried of being lied to. We are sick of being treated like children who are told what to think, what to believe, how to act, and how to spend our money. We are sick of reading about our trusted leaders getting involved in sex scandals. We are sick of conservatives telling us that gays go to hell, only to have them caught with their pants down and a dick in their mouth. We are sick of the “I say stay the course” only to later be fed “I never said stay the course”. We are sick of your propaganda, your wars, and your fucking lies.

You have restored a fraction of my faith by proving that something has to change. This is not to condemn the Republicans, because I believe in bipartisanship. This is only to show that when you are entrusted with the faith of the American people to do what is right and what is best for this country, you had better not fuck it up. This month shows that we want change, and we are willing to do what it takes to hold those accountable. How could the GOP possibly not have seen this coming?

With hope in our hearts and bricks in our hands, we sing for change

Royale With Cheese

Don’t look at me that way baby, you knew I was comin’ back. Why would you think that I would leave you? How could you say that! You know you’re the only audience for me baby, I swears it. That other audience don’t mean nuthin’ to me, they just a bunch of skanks. I never touched them, I swear.

So, I am listening to the new Killers record right now, in case any of you needed further proof that I hate myself and enjoy constant suffering and sorrow. It took me a while to figure out why everybody hates them, but after doing a little research I have discovered that it is not the band that everyone hates, but lead singer/front-man/douche bag Brandon Flowers. This is probably due to the fact that he apparently likes to talk a lot of shit about bands that he later claims he has never even heard before. I guess selling five million records gives you that kind of clout.

Anyway, I’m excited about the new James Bond flick. Are you excited? I’m excited. I like that they are going back to the beginning and giving it more of that gritty, unpolished look instead of the shoe-polish-shine kind of films we have been treated to as of late. Don’t get me wrong, I like Pierce Brosnan as an actor, but I don’t like what the studio has turned the franchise into. He needs to rely less on his gadgets and more on his training, and the new flick looks like it displays just that.

God dammit this album sucks, switching CD’s…

I have heard some of the new tracks off of the upcoming new release by Brand New, and it sounds delicious. I am giddy with anticipation. I went to the Dashboard Confessional show in San Jose two weeks ago, but I missed Brand New and only caught Dashboard. I’m just lucky that way. Never in my life have I seen so many pairs of Converse All Stars in one place. It was creepy.

I have been slacking off on my new album and concert reviews, and it is not for lack of new material to critique. It is simply that I am too busy right now, but I want to pick it back up so this weekend I am going to crank out a few record reviews, and I am going to see Bishop Allen and Starlight Mints this Friday, so I will have a review of that up this weekend as well.

Well, that is about it for now. I have been sick the last couple of days and cannot get rid of these headaches, so I am going to pray for the sweet sudden death that never comes. Stay sexy.

Ever since I was young your word is the word that always won

The Great Gatsby

There’s the love of your life, the love that got away, and the lost love. You’re supposed to love the one you’re with, let love in, let love shine, and let your love grow. All is fair in love and war, love hurts, love bites, love sucks, and love stinks. Love heals all, make love not war, love your neighbor, love your enemy, and love unconditionally. Can’t buy me love, love don’t cost a thing, love is free, love all, love life. Love yourself, love God, love is all around, and love makes the world go round.

They tell you everything you need to know about love except where to find it.

Come on now, let me feel the gross out
