What do I do for a Saturday night article when I can’t think of anything to write about? Write about everything.
—I’m having a bit of trouble coming up with a title for the poetry collection I’m turning into my creative writing class next week. Originally it was going to be Mean Poems, but then not every poem was mean, and I’m going for unity. Then I thought about Shitty Poems, but that struck me as too clever and precious and just too fucking too. The front runner as of this writing is Glib, Pretentious Bullshit.
—This is the driest of dry wells I’m pumping here, I realize, but I’m still amazed at how much conservative Christian white people — the least persecuted demographic in the history of the human race — bitch about their country being taken away from them. If the U.S. is really such a godless, heretical nation, if we really have turned our collective backs on Jesus, why is it so easy to find about a thousand different versions of The Bible on CD and DVD, and so hard to find, say, the Bhagavad-Gita?
—Ever watched D.L Hughley Breaks the News on CNN Headline News? Holy God, is it awful.
—Finally, the best comment I’ve gotten on this lowly, passed-over corner of the internet in many moons. This is in response to me complimenting the “This Day in History” feature on the website Wrestlenewz.com, but referring to the rest of the site as “unimpressive”:
hey you fat sloppy fuck, if you want to see unimpressive, check out your life.
wrestlenewz.com is the best wrestling site out there.
now eat my dick douche bag.
Now I know how Michael Steele felt. Or would have felt, were Rush Limbaugh that eloquent.
