blog blog blog with impunity - phhhft...
Somedays you need a quickie - I know what Iggy would say - I need about 10 quickies - so here you go - now with 20% less vulgarity - LOL.
I'm in a foul mood, with bald faced liars smiling to me while they withdraw money from my wallet and say "hey, that's the game"
But it's not poker, it's politics - and one of the worst God Damn liars - Tom Delay, has stepped down as leader of the biggest pack of liars in Congress.
I voted Rep. in 2000 - I understand the lure, esp. for the Religious Right, of a guy like Delay - preaching family values - and if he embezzles funds and shuffles money, it's not Right Wing Christian money, right? - so all should be forgiven, esp. if he didn't technically break the law, just fractured it -
Maybe - but I hope he goes to jail anyways. - I'm glad he lost his job and I'm glad his antics have probably cost the Republicans the 2006 midterms. It COULDN'T happen to a nicer guy cause a nicer guy wouldn't have gotten greedy like the Exterminator from Texas.
I shouldn't make fun of a guy's job - jobs come and go - and we're not all lucky - but Exterminator? - a bug guy? acquainted with vermin? - Nope - doesn't suprise me - he just traded up for a richer class of vermin.
What Democrats need now is a similar plan to the Contract with America - they need to lay out their platform and say "If you make Congress a democratic Congress, here's what we'll push forwards.
First things first, the Republican Filibustering will fire up into high gear - but that's the way it goes -
I will be attending meeting of NORML - (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) - I think if this became a Democratic Party platform, you'd get that 5-10 percent of weed smokers that stay home. - LOL - these days an extra 5-10% is the victory.
I'm working on a few writing projects - my top 10 albums of all time - some songs - a reanalysis of Christian Faith from a Progressive/Liberal mindset as opposed to a Conservative Bigoted Rightwing version - nothing really sticking to the wall as something I'd like to expose to the public - same with the newest tracks/songs -
There is a little fun thing called Feburary Album Writing Month, where you try to get 14 songs in 28 days recorded - I MAY do that - we'll see what free time looks like - that'll devour the whole friggen month pretty easy - plus then you end up with 14 ok songs instead of 2 or 3 great ones -
I shoot for Quality over Quanity, obviously - most times - except with the blog - LOL
My problem is I spend so much time around the greatest writers and songwriters in the world - I can write a good song but at the end of the day I say "yah, but it's not as good as what Townes Van Zandt did" and I wanna toss it -
"and everybody out here, they wanna live somewhere else
I wish I could find a place and stay there by myself
and bit by bit I swear I think I'm losing all this city's confidence"
- Great lines - watch the video - I wanna be the guy driving - Jim Cuddy - LOL - great alt-country voice too - damn...
The "Your Blog Sucks" t-shirt is going to a co-worker in CA - (she flirts a lot - I caved and she wants to insult a friend's blog - what can I say) - so you're on your own for getting your own - but then, they've gotta be custom made - I like the idea of making your own shirt and saying exactly what you want instead of paying someone else to say what you think they want you to say.
I am probably going to find a way to add my BR growth to the site, kind of like the banners up top - I'll have to republish the index about every week, but I think it'll be good for you guys to see where the BR is at and bitch me out if I sign up for the $215 tourney before I get about 2K in the BR - LOL - (no one said anything about satellites though) -
Band has a gig on Tues, the 10th at the Uptown Bar - come out if you're local - we're on about 11:30 - (last) but our friends the Intangibles are on first - they're just hard to wrap your mind around, that's all - [rimshot]
the Pokerstars PCA is going on - I feel good that I can win a satellite this year for one of these events, even if it's a FPP event - I'm just nailing my game and I haven't even FINISHED Harrington on Holdem yet - LOL -
My fav. female poker player - Jennifer "Jennicide" Leigh is doing well after day 3 - good for her - a few other names I recognize. Nothing standing out anymore though.
I would like to make some color changes to the blog - we're using standard templates but they're borrowed by a lot of people, including my new good bud Poker Doctor - I never liked lime green anyways - I'm thinking a dark brown/blue - sort of a wild west meets Radiohead -
I'm not good with visuals or design - and I can't program to save my life - every modification I made to the template so far has been a bastardized hook/crook job that took about 10 saves to figure out right - LOL - but visitorship is down - in part cause of the holidays and in part cause I said I was going on vacation - :D- so now's the time to screw stuff up.
I liked this picture Pauly took -
he joked that I was beginning the prayer service at the WPBT - I probably have more religious education then anyone at the WPBT (biblical studies minor in college) but I don't see myself becoming the Father Dowling of Poker - LOL -
wish I could have hung out with him and Iggy - but moreso, I wish I had done so when I was still boozing. - LOL I keep begging them to come out so I can get them stoned in MN, cause I still can use that one - LOL -
I guess I'm all out of things to talk about - (did I mention I scored $400 in tourney wins and 500 in TLB points this week on Pokerstars - LOL - ) -
One more thing - you might notice some funny changes to the blog, esp. to posts - I have decided to start showing some restraint and started deleting posts that I felt were inferior to others - and I'm gonna go back to April and wind my way up...
Why? - for one - I have no editor and my mouth goes non stop - It takes 3 days for me to realize I should have shut my mouth, and then I can correct the issue - SO - I'm gonna go thru and clean house a bit -
but mostly, I think some of the stuff I wrote pre-sobrity sucks dogass - LOL - I once had a friend tell me that we (him and I) were overly-sensitive guys - meaning that we are too emotional, essentially - LOL. But I got dragged into the nice part of that over-emotional side. Too deep into introspection and too far away from action - too much into victimization and not enough vengence. This has become unacceptable to me as of late.
Once in a while you need a different kind of emotion - the kind that sends you into the temple and overturning the moneychanger's tables - that righteous indigniation over fuckwads like Pat Robertson, who said Ariel Sharon's stroke was judgement from God. - there's a need for guys like me to kick guys like that in the balls - hard.
prepare for ball-kicking in 2006 - I'm sober, pissed, and I've been celibate for way too long - balls are going to be kicked.
but for now, maybe I'll play with the template for the site - hope you have a rocking weekend -
