Which Buffy & Enneagram's 9 Personalities Are You?

brought to you by Quizilla

Wow, have I actually stooped to posting a Buffy personality quiz on my weblog? Intriguing.

If you ever see some guy wandering around Portland wearing a nametag, it's probably just Scott.

Grumble. I've been thinking about doing a write-up of my movie stub collection for several weeks recently, but now that I know there's a weblog for it, I just feel trite and cheap.

This is exactly why I hate the Internet.

I'll probably still do that write-up, though. In the meanwhile, feel free to read about and comment on my New Year's Eve adventure.

Worst Anti-Terrorism Plan Ever!

No, wait, second worst.

In other news: Hey, the Pope's supposed to be infallible, right?

Obey. Here's an article that I'm flagging for myself to finish reading later.

What the heck? If you're going to pipe in propaganda to meddle in the affairs of radical countries, and you're actually being successful, why would you suddenly switch from Radio Freedom to Radio Britney Spears?

Mmm... Love those visual puns.

I know this website is wrong, but I can't quite muster up the reasons why since it hits so close to home for the time being.

Here's a slightly flawed, but fairly enlightening article on K5 about fetishism and culture. The discussion is as valuable as the article, but there's a lot to wade through. There's also a detailed description of one thing that I really wish I could go back in time and not read, so you've been warned.

The idea that fetishism is a psychological reaction to sexual repression is something I've believed for a few years now. I even worked a few paragraphs worth of a rant about it into my novel and there's the essay that I wrote for my sociology class that poses the possibility that Disney's purposeful avoidance of sexual topics results in the various Disney fetishes.

I'm making a note here to myself to read these Bush bashing articles someday when I'm feeling particularly cynical.

And here's an unrelated, cynical "d'uh, I already knew that, too" article.

I think average guy and average gal would make a cute couple.

Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore. There's surrealist nude photography. And then there's the realist's approach to erotic contours.

Well, at least she's pretty.

There's computer generated haiku, computer generated love stories, computer generated crime fighting characters and the always enlightening ChomskyBot.

Wow. That's a lot of semen.

Let's see. Well, I'm just getting over an iffy cold. It was tolerable in some ways and yucky in others, so I spent most of my time playing Civilization III. I won my last game on the warlord level via accidental domination. Well, it wasn't that accidental, but I had forgotten that Civ III has lower standards when it comes to defining "taking over the world." I also learned that you should never divide your force when trying to attack the enemy's core cities, no matter how weak the enemy may seem. Most of the time it seems you're better off working your way through the outlier cities and suffocating the capital.

So, hmmm... Interesting links. Well, it seems that PETA is endorsing the Burger King Veggie Buger. Strange, strange world. Actually, the BK Veggie is pretty blah. PETA would better spend their energy trying to convince the big burger industry to try Boca Burgers.

What else? 'eh. Authorities abuse Constitutional rights in the name of anti-terrorism. Yada yada. Whatever happened to the big old national debt sign in Times Square? They should put up another sign that says "Days since the Bush administration has violated an American's Constitutional rights: 0." It wouldn't even have to be a digital sign. I mean, really, just paint the zero on there.

Okay, here's where MetaFilter discusses the "My Anus is Bleeding" cartoon.

Confidential to anybody who gets that inside joke: Hang in there.
