Over on my amazingly boring blog I've posted my case for Why I'm Voting for Kerry. In the interests of keeping it brief and easy to skim it's mostly a bullet list of points.
The recent headlines about some commie San Francisco-liberal mayor's efforts to treasonously violate state law and allow women to vote has brought women's suffrage back to the front of public debate. This is unfortunate, I thought we had sorted this out when we passed the Defense of Suffrage Act. To review why we must deny women the right to vote in order to protect suffrage, I recommend that everyone read my comments from last summer.
(Yes, this is a dupe from last summer, but given the current hoopla surrounding the San Francisco situation I thought it might be interesting.)
There is a referendum to authorize a casino in my county (for, against). I haven't made up my mind. I'm curious what other people think. Do you live in Dane County, Wisconsin? What are you planning? Do you live somewhere where a local casio was allowed? How did it work out?
At the moment I'm slightly leaning against the casino. Here is my current reasoning.
Signs that a movie will be bad:
- The phrase "The Movie" in the title
- Use of an overused song to try and capture a particular feeling ("Bad to the Bone" and "Old Time Rock and Roll" are two particularly bad offenders)
- The trailer fails to even hint at a specific plotline.
- It's based on a soulless corporate comic strip that actually sucks the humor out of other comic strips placed near it.
I suppose you could say I'm not optimistic about Garfield: The Movie .
If you're a role-playing gamer, you might be familiar with Scourge of Worlds, a strange pick-a-path style DVD featuring the D&D iconic characters. If you're curious about this strange beast, check out my site dedicated to the Scourge of Worlds DVD game. I've got a full map of the game, a summary of the story, screenshots, and generally a great deal of evidence that I'm a giant dork.
I've come to the conclusion that Sony hates me.
Not me personally, but me as a customer.
If they didn't hate me, why would they have the audacity to sell me a PlayStation 2, without a doubt the worst console for usability ever.
