When you're born in this world, you're given a ticket to the freak show. When you're born in America, you're given a front row seat. - George Carlin, NYT 12/12/2004

The subject matter of the two articles below [via Midwestgrrl, and me who for once read more than the headlines in the Sunday New York Times] have left me too disgusted for words.

*Walmart being sued for $75,000 for each corrupted soul that purchased Evanescence's latest CD, which contains the word "fuck." Goddamn lawyers.

*Current banned public discussion of my awesome sort of neighbor's awesome movie Kinsey, which is about the banned public discussion of the facts about sex and Dr. Kinsey's research thereof fifty years ago. Oh the sad, sad irony.

In other news, this unemployment business has made me nocturnal. Last night I was up until 5:30, not partying like a rockstar, but alone, drinking beer, smoking cigs, and researching grad school options and how to get my sorry ass accepted so that I can make a living off of studying the aforementioned freak show.

I have the same nocturnalness problem! What a hassle when normal people want to see me...ugh, daylight.

Yeah, this nocturnal thing is all new to me. I'm a seasoned insomniac, but I'm starting to realize it's better to stay up doing stuff than feebly attempting to sleep.
