I’ve not been posting much lately, not because I’m all that busy … but because I’m living such a boring life.
However, since I know my dedicated readers are dying to know what I think here goes:
If you’re not gay and you’re in a gar bar, and you’ve not been invited, it’s probably seen as, at worst, a kind of slumming, so pack it up and leave.
Manti Te’o is a) a moron, b) part of the fraud, and c) a lying liar. Also, he sucked ass in the BCS Championship game and will be a terrible pro for the NY Jets. If he is in fact gay, I think that it would be nice if he came out, as that would be a huge deal for closeted gay teens who play football, but in no way is that anyone’s business but his. The rampant speculation about his sexuality says a lot more about Americans’ pathetic fascination with famous people’s sexualities than Te’o’s proclivities, and it sickens me.
Jodie Foster’s Army was a terrible band, but had maybe the best name for a band ever. I’d rather listen to JFA’s entire catalog of shitty hardcore right now than hear one more note about Jodie Foster’s sexuality or her speech at the Globes.
I still haven’t seen ‘Django’ but I just saw ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ the other day so I’m not exactly up on my movies; just wait until, if and when, I have a kid. That said, l loved ‘DKR’ and hope that Nolan does another ‘Batman’ movie. I still think ‘Life of Pi’ was the best film I saw this year, followed by ‘Brave’ and ‘Lincoln.’
I love my job, but I am deeply fearful about it. This economy sucks, and I blame so-called conservatives entirely, and it is damn scary how deeply it might bite me in the ass. Real conservatives who aren’t consumed with their hatred for Obama can at least see the need for sane fiscal policies—with debate—but these Tea Party nutbags who care more about AR-15s than paying the nation’s bills are beyond the Pale. Screw them.
I am still reading Ratner’s Star even though I’m not really enjoying it beyond the lovely sentences, but I have to have it in the arsenal. Being a scholar is hard work.
It’s cool here today, and wet, and I have to go running tonight. Fat man in tights! Hide yo wife, hide yo kids!
