Sunday, March 29, 7:02 PM - this is getting to be too much
Dear Hollywood,

Please stop taking popular Japanese anime titles and adapting them into live-action Hollywood flicks. Your movies are bad. Instead of taking story ideas from Japan, why don't you come up with something original on your own for once?

Also, you've given Keanu Reeves a movie career for decades now. Please stop giving him work as an actor so that I can stop grinding my teeth at night.

No love,

me

Case in point:

Cowboy Bebop
Astro Boy
Dragon Ball
Battle Angel

Ripped this from Facebook.

I'm a little confused. Let me see if I have this straight.

* If you grow up in Hawaii , raised by your grandparents, you're "exotic and different."
* But if you grow up in Alaska eating moose burgers, it's a quintessential American story.

* If your name is Barack you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.
* But if you name your kids Bristol, Piper, Willow, Trig and Track, you're a maverick.

* Graduate from Harvard Law School and you are unstable.
* But if you attend five different small colleges before graduating, you're well grounded.

* If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a constitutional law professor, spend 8 years as a state senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs committees, you don't have any real leadership experience.
* But if your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you're qualified to become the country's second highest ranking executive.

* If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising two beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you're not a real Christian.
* But if you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you are a Christian.

* If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.
* But if, while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your state's school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you're very responsible.

* If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family's values don't represent America 's.
* But if your husband is nicknamed "First Dude", with at least one DUI conviction and no college education, who didn't register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.

OK, much clearer now.

(Public post)

On Wednesday, President Bush apparently is coming to my hometown of Charleston for a $4,200-per-couple fundraiser for WVa congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito... I'm on the mailing list for WVa Patriots for Peace, so I know they plan on holding a protest - at first, near the private home holding the fundraiser (which is very near where my family's old house is), but they apparently had to relocate. I wish I could be there for the protest - the idea of Bush encroaching on MY NEIGHBORHOOD makes my skin crawl.

How the hell did YOU come to represent ME in the state senate? To the people on my Flist who live in WVa: if you can, join the protest!

Wednesday, August 10, 5:01 PM - hate is not a family value
Gacked from thetis_argent. I found this incredibly eloquent and moving.

(and yes, this is another rare public post)

A Mother's Reflections

The following is a very strong and moving letter written by the mother of a gay boy in Vermont...

"Many letters have been sent to the Valley News concerning the homosexual menace in Vermont. I am the mother of a gay son and I've taken enough from you good people. I'm tired of your foolish rhetoric about the "homosexual agenda" and your allegations that accepting homosexuality is the same thing as advocating sex with children. You are cruel and ignorant. You have been robbing me of the joys of motherhood ever since my children were tiny.

My firstborn son started suffering at the hands of the moral little thugs from your moral, upright families from the time he was in the first grade. He was physically and verbally abused from first grade straight through high school because he was perceived to be gay.

He never professed to be gay or had any association with anything gay, but he had the misfortune not to walk or have gestures like the other boys. He was called "fag" incessantly, starting when he was 6.

In high school, while your children were doing what kids that age should be doing, mine labored over a suicide note, drafting and redrafting it to be sure his family knew how much he loved them. My sobbing 17-year-old tore the heart out of me as he choked out that he just couldn't bear to continue living any longer, that he didn't want to be gay and that he couldn't face a life without dignity.

You have the audacity to talk about protecting families and children from the homosexual menace, while you yourselves tear apart families and drive children to despair. I don't know why my son is gay, but I do know that God didn't put him, and millions like him, on this Earth to give you someone to abuse. God gave you brains so that you could think, and it's about time you started doing that.

At the core of all your misguided beliefs is the belief that this could never happen to you, that there is some kind of subculture out there that people have chosen to join. The fact is that if it can happen to my family, it can happen to yours, and you won't get to choose. Whether it is genetic or whether something occurs during a critical time of fetal development, I don't know. I can only tell you with an absolute certainty that it is inborn.

If you want to tout your own morality, you'd best come up with something more substantive than your heterosexuality. You did nothing to earn it; it was given to you. If you disagree, I would be interested in hearing your story, because my own heterosexuality was a blessing I received with no effort whatsoever on my part. It is so woven into the very soul of me that nothing could ever change it. For those of you who reduce sexual orientation to a simple choice, a character issue, a bad habit or something that can be changed by a 10-step program, I'm puzzled. Are you saying that your own sexual orientation is nothing more than something you have chosen, that you could change it at will? If that's not the case, then why would you suggest that someone else can?

A popular theme in your letters is that Vermont has been infiltrated by outsiders. Both sides of my family have lived in Vermont for generations. I am heart and soul a Vermonter, so I'll thank you to stop saying that you are speaking for "true Vermonters."

You invoke the memory of the brave people who have fought on the battlefield for this great country, saying that they didn't give their lives so that the "homosexual agenda" could tear down the principles they died defending. My 83-year-old father fought in some of the most horrific battles of World War II, was wounded and awarded the Purple Heart.

He shakes his head in sadness at the life his grandson has had to live. He says he fought alongside homosexuals in those battles, that they did their part and bothered no one. One of his best friends in the service was gay, and he never knew it until the end, and when he did find out, it mattered not at all. That wasn't the measure of the man.

You religious folk just can't bear the thought that as my son emerges from the hell that was his childhood he might like to find a lifelong companion and have a measure of happiness. It offends your sensibilities that he should request the right to visit that companion in the hospital, to make medical decisions for him or to benefit from tax laws governing inheritance.

How dare he? you say. These outrageous requests would threaten the very existence of your family, would undermine the sanctity of marriage. You use religion to abdicate your responsibility to be thinking human beings. There are vast numbers of religious people who find your attitudes repugnant. God is not for the privileged majority, and God knows my son has committed no sin.

The deep-thinking author of a letter to the April 12 Valley News who lectures about homosexual sin and tells us about "those of us who have been blessed with the benefits of a religious upbringing" asks: "What ever happened to the idea of striving . . . to be better human beings than we are?"

Indeed, sir, what ever happened to that? "

__________________________________________________________

If you believe that homosexuals deserve the same rights as everyone else, repost this, and be thankful that there are people like this mother, because without them, where would we be?

Everything good and decent that I learned as a kid in those days of "sharing and caring" and "learning your manners" and "reduce reuse recycle" and "America is a free country" - you get the idea - all of the ideals I once had have been shattered by the purely horrible things this one man (this blabbering IDIOT - have you been reading my signatures lately?) has done.

Right now as things stand I honestly have no hope for this country. I can't possibly imagine things improving. If I were religious this would be like having a crisis of faith. Civil Rights? Bill of Rights? Global Diplomacy? Peace and Justice? Fighting Terrorism? Do these things really and truly have any chance the way Bush has been doing things these four years??

And the fact that so many Americans turn a blind eye to his acts and stick hardcore to their prejudices, their closed minds, their ethnocentricity, etc. just makes the despair greater. They don't want democracy anymore, they're just mindless sheep willing to follow anyone, even if it's someone who hurts them. Bush hurts people but no one sees that, and no one WANTS to see it - the thought makes me want to cry more than scream in anger.

My plan? Get away from here. Leave before all hell breaks loose. Most places are probably not much better but at least none of them would have a leader working under such false, misleading pretenses.

Thursday, February 26, 1:52 PM - Milton: Satan being the underdog?
Milton discussion! (A continuation of my Pitas entry.) This really should probably take place in class or on FC but what the hey. (Hope I don't bore y'all out there.)

I don't know about anyone else but I'm finding myself sympathizing with Satan in the first book. He's mentioned as having to deal with constant pain and agony since being thrown into Hell but he's got a lot of fortitude for a fallen angel. I find it odd that he's being portrayed as suffering in the first place! Who woulda guessed that Satan could suffer in Hell? With the mental picture that Satan could suffer just like mortals could, it makes him more complex and it's not just the clear-cut "good vs. evil" deal you get in most stories involving Satan vs. God. And for him so far it's all been mind-over-matter and determination, something that all people should probably put stock in, something you might admire a hero in a book or in a movie for having. Not only is Satan easier to sympathize with, God is harder to admire in the first book. Usurping the rule of Heaven and tossing people (other gods, deities, Satan, whathaveyou) out, as Milton is portraying so far, isn't exactly the nicest thing to do, even if He IS God and Satan IS Satan. But you obviously can't keep Satan in Heaven, I guess. I suppose Milton really puts God in a quandary here. If God is an entity in total control of everything - if he really is omnipotent - then he's inflicting suffering on a being capable of feeling it (Satan); and if God is more in a struggle against Satan then He can't really be in full control of everything.

Of course, as Prof. Noggle said, we're trying to imagine these things that are beyond human comprehension and experience with a human frame of reference... and even Milton can't put into words what happened to cause the Fall. Go figure, thanks a lot for nothing, Milton. =)

So yeah, sympathy right now to the underdog, Satan, although I'm sure as I read more of Paradise Lost this is going to change.

First, Jenn's mom is one of the coolest moms around - anyone who can bake, watch anime, and get the entire anime club to fall in love with her is just damn cool.

Second, Tarja's mom is one of the most marvelous people anywhere. Anyone who can get me that tipsy (and I was pretty tipsy tonight) and make me laugh and have so much fun etc. is just marvelous, fabulous. Tarja's sister is also very cool - now why can't my family be more like this? Oh and sub-declaration: never never ever get strawberry rum. Unless Isabel is present to wipe the entire glass out in one gulp.

Not a declaration, but just something funny: one of the girls on my floor just randomly asked me in the elevator if I was Michelle and Regina's cousin - my jaw probably dropped. Turns out she went to school with both of them in Korea. She probably doesn't read this but if she does: Regina, if you're gonna come to Boston and crash at my place, *tell* me about it first at least!!

When that day comes around - it was nice knowing you, folks! I'll be sure to leave a will. Oh, and double boo, I asked mom about the possibility of a new laptop for my graduation present =D I knew it would be a stretch but I didn't think Mom would be practical to know that I don't really *need* one of those beautiful, sleek, preeeeeeeesssciousssssssss Powerbooks. I was kinda hoping she'd just trust my judgement since she knows nothing about computers (but that backfires - she thinks my current computer is still "new"). So unless I *really* need it, it doesn't look like my parents will be shelling out the money for a Powerbook. Looks like I might have to save up and do it myself (and settle for an Ibook maybe?).

It might be a universal law that whenever one person's life starts to go right, the good parts from other people's have to be taken away.

(Fuck, I think I just plagiarized Bridget Jones. [!])

It's a screwed up law. Just when I was about to get into a good groove of things the enjoyment of this upswing has to be tampered down by what goes on in the rest of the world.

And then there are those who are just sad and lonely on their own because they can't even enjoy the company of a stuffed animal! Or let other people enjoy stuffed animals! What kind of parade-rainer would you have to be to purposely RUIN other people's fun and mirth? Could you honestly something like tell a kid on Christmas Eve that Santa Clause doesn't exist?

Christ. CHRIST. I'm going on an interview. A FRICKIN' JOB INTERVIEW. Someone give me some hints, NOW!!!

If Japanese grade school kids are really as horrible as Kodomo no Omocha makes them out to be, then you can bet your bottom dollar I am either going to:

a) become the Ultimate Bitch Teacher and scare the crap out of them (just like my 6th grade teacher did to us kiddies when we were in like 1st grade)

b) Turn into the weenie-teacher and break down sobbing.

Well, the first hurdle is to get invited for an interview for JET (or Earlham) so if that doesn't happen then guess I don't have to worry about them Japanese schoolkids...

And as for Gravitation - man that series is just FILLED WITH SEIYUU INCEST! And that is wrong! SO WRONG! It's nice to hear so many of my fave and familiar seiyuu all in one series but the more I watch the more hints connecting Gravitation to Furuba keep popping up. Which we do not want because I like my Seki Tomokazu characters non-weenied. Also, I like Tomokazu-sama straight. Because if he's gay then how am I suppose to glomp him? I cannot glomp a gay (and weenied) Tomokazu-sama!

So it was a good thing after all that I DIDN'T commit myself to the Vagina Monologues this year. Andy's coming to visit and now ndless_mike  has finalized her plans to come visit next week as well. Not to mention it's a certain someone's birthday on Valentine's Day. HO BOY! Thank goodness that's a long weekend but it's suddenly INSANE the stuff going on! Not just the visits and the birthday, but also Dyke Ball and the Monologues (which I want to watch, since I couldn't participate), and SBOG has a small thing planned as well. Second week of classes and already I'm getting the squeeze.

Pardon me for saying this but I don't think I'll go to the Dyke Ball. It's just too much stuff going on and that's the thing I'm least interested in doing that weekend. Plus, I'm too lazy. And too stressed out.
