Today looks to be the biggest Super Tuesday event in history. To celebrate, I’ve done a You Laugh, You Lose political theme for the event. I went out to vote only to find out that I’m registered as an independent so I’m not allowed to vote in the presidential primaries. Well, fuck that’s totally lame. All I could vote for was some local school board members, which I knew nothing about.
You see, I’m a bit stuck on who to vote for anyway. I like Ron Paul because he wants to limit the government’s power, lower government spending to such a point that it gets rid of the feudal income tax, pull US troops out from around the whole world, deregulation of the Internet, and get the US dollar to be solid to increase it’s value so things can be cheaper again. Of course, he’s not perfect. He lacks a lot of the civil rights that I see Barack Obama has. To show you a quick piece on Obama’s character, read how he helped out a fellow Democrat. That’s just one example of his character. He’s also more gamer friendly anyone else and his support for technology issues is unlike anyone else. Obama wants a more open government. I read this blog post on how he went to Lawrence Lessig, founder of Creative Commons, to discuss internet and copyright policy. Just read this for way more reasons to vote for him. During his campaign, he’s refused to take lobbyist money, unlike Hillary Clinton who has taken more lobbyist money than anyone else. Something Awful did this humorous article endorsing Hillary. Bill Clinton was alright, but his wife is only where she is because of her husband. I’m all for a woman president, but not this one. This piece was the first thing I read listing why Hillary should drop out of the race. If you just google, “reasons not to vote for Hillary Clinton,” you’ll see tons of lists.
And that’s a wrap for my political thoughts. If Paul and Obama ran together as president and vice, that would be awesome.
Busy, busy, busy. In most of my free time, I’ve been working on my novella, The Crashing of Heaven and Hell. It’s going to be such an awesome book. You better buy it when it comes out because all the cool kids are going to be buying it. You want a taste of it’s awesomeness? Okay, here is one paragraph for you guys:
Virus was reaching to take off Jet’s pants when a wooden pirate ship sailed right through her house. (Yes, I said a pirate ship, you know the boat kind that floats on water, but this ship was so awesome it could sail anywhere.) The two lovers stopped and ran away from the ship and out the front door. They watched the ship sail through a sea of buildings. Their view however was soon obstructed for Virus’ house started to magically rebuild itself. In a matter of minutes, the house was back the way it was.
Wasn’t that paragraph the most awesome Valentine’s Day gift you even gotten!? I totally give the best gifts. Though, no girl is awesome enough to be my valentine this year. My dream girl looks something like this. Why is she so awesome? Let’s see: short black hair, glasses, dark clothing, cute, oh and she has Sonic the Hedgehog posters. Too bad she has boyfriend and lives in another country.
Now it’s time to share pictures of my hotness. On Tuesday, I went out and to look for some new sunglasses since I got my free pair certificate for working a year at LensCrafters. I’ve now been with the company for four years now. I’m burning out, but today was a good day though. But I’m getting off subject. I went to Sunglass Hut (which is owned by LensCrafters) to find some sunglasses. I found three pair I thought were interesting, so I had the associates there take pictures of myself wearing them. All of these pictures were taken on my cellphone, so the image quality is lame. I present: the Juliet, Whisker, and Crosshair. I’ve showed the pictures to some friends to get their feed back. No one cares for the Crosshair. Most of the votes have gone toward the Whisker, but the Juliet is a close second. I’m leaning toward the Whisker myself. The next time I have time off, I’m going to go and get a frame and then get my prescription put in it.
There’s also this really cool AR lens treatment I read about and I was trying to find a place that sold it, but I didn’t find any. Though, I only got around to looking at one place. I spent a good chuck of the day also trying to find the clothing store, Tree and Leaf Clothing, only to find out that the place I read about online was there printing headquarters. The guy there was pretty helpful and told me where I could find their products at these clothing stores I never heard of before. I ended up learning about three offbeat cool places to check out the next time I have a chance. My next day off work is Saturday, but the news is saying that the weather could be snowy. Damn snow.
Let’s see, what else… I bought OMR’s album, Superheroes Crash, through Amazon’s MP3 download service. The quality is awesome and best of all it’s DRM free. Sorry, iTunes, but Amazon kicks your butt. I had a weird dream where I sent our dog, Buster, upstairs to my room because I heard aliens running around up there. Okay, that’s all for now. I need to update SoaH now with some Sonic Riders 2 music.
