  1. Just droppin' in to say hello to all the folks. I'm still around. If I do anything cool soon (the are a few projects up the pipeline that might get realized in the next few months), I'll drop a thread here.
  2. Amy really had a combination of intelligence and whimsy that made these boards feel like a home to me. There was just a life in my interactions with her that felt irrepressible and full of the joy of emotional and intellectual exploration. I really just wish I hadn't faded away and had tried harder to be there for her in the last couple of years.
  3. Hello all, I just got a facebook message from Baltar letting me know what happened. I'm really at a loss for words. After I got the email, I was just kind of in shock, but then I went to my bookshelf and got the copy of Seamus Heaney's "Beowulf" (it has the old english and modern translation side by side) that she had sent me back in 05/06. I don't know what to say to you all, so I'll just copy down the inscription she put on the inside cover: "Hi Mith, I bought this last winter meaning to learn OE by immersion (like I said in the PM) but I didn't. So now, it's yours xD -Amy (from a-e) P.S. Merry Holidays" When I read that I just broke down in tears.
  4. I think I win at life, because I'm getting drunk on Bass ale alone on a sunday. IF you disagree shut up
  5. So, I'm working on a hardcore punk song about the Lord of the Rings. Here are the lyrics so far: FRODO! frodo! FRODO! Frodo! I AM TOM BOMBADILLO Frodo FRODO Frodo!

  6. Hello A-E. I had a baffling night last night. I made a steak with my friend Joe. Then things took an ugly ugly turn. I don't remember what happened really, but a lit cigar has been shoved (burning end forward) into my mouth. A knife has been held to my throat. I broke a wine glass over his head. I just woke up and there is blood everywhere. Everywhere. What the fuck.
  7. Nah, I was completely fine. Car flipped over and was completely destroyed, though. But then, that's what I get for driving down one of america's curviest highways on a very very foggy night.
  8. Yeah, my life has been freaking crazy lately. Moved back to the states, got into a freaking hardcore car accident, found an apartment. All that jazz. I decided to spend tonight sitting at home drinking, and, as such, I thought I'd see what was going on out here.
  9. Humans have risen above the birds. Your logic is entirely inconsistent there, anyway. Your analogy would only work if I were saying "Women shouldn't have breasts. They make us unequal." Make up is a social construct, not a biological one. The cultural paradigm that caused make-up to develop is the product of a social system that viewed woman as secondary to men. I object to the entire notion that we need to alter our appearances to attract a mate. So granted, I am muddling my feminism with my rather radical mind-over-body beliefs. Suffice to say, the feminist part of the argument can be summarized as: either everyone should be allowed/expected to wear makeup or no one should. My personal beliefs are strongly in favor of the later because it would draw attention away from our appearances. Blah blah blah, this is all theoretical. It's never gonna happen, but goddamn it I want it to.
  10. In a dreamy half-awake state that came from my decision to stay up until 3 last night cooking all sorts of crazy meat and potato thingies and the mind-numbing filing that i've been doing for the last 3 hours. Also, I'm a little sad that the steak I brought for lunch wasn't more tender. I smashed the shit out of that thing with a hammer last night, so I assumed I would actually be able to chew the fucker.
  11. Because it's a serious issue that needs to be addressed?
  12. Yeah, I know. I'm just mad about the whole state of affairs, and I need to take it out on something concrete. I mean I can get by most days hating on the patriarchy, but after a while it just wears sorta thin and I want to be mad at something that exists as more than a pattern of social preconceptions (even if it doesn't do anyone a lick of good). So, in short, if Max Factor were here, I'd kick his ass.
  13. True true. I used to quite enjoy astrology (until maybe 2 hours ago). Now I'm really mad at it. Don't know why my attitude or if it'll change back (probably will).
