I saw an article saying that Bush is considering dropping Cheney as VP, and asking Guliani to run with him. I'm not sure what to think. While Guliani is a leaning when it comes to abortion and welfare (I think)...it would still be a big Bush in office. Plus, I seriously doubt that Cheney will stop w...

I took someone to see it, and she was completely confused. There are plot movies, and there are mood movies. This was definitely a mood movie. So I guess all the people who need a good strong plot will miss the point. There was an emotional journey for these characters, not a physical one. Its the d...

Unfortunately, that was just a poster project for school. The only "professional" work I've done was in an internship, and I can't even really show that work yet, since the shows haven't publicly aired (even though its been over a year, and my "payment" for the work was the fact I was supposed to be...

The reporter is grossly insensitive to the fact that Bush is hungry and wants some ribs. Like every other American, Bush is entitled to eat in peace. Considering it was a photo-op, and the kick-off to his re-election campaign, and all Bush was doing was standing there with his arm around the owner,...

I refer you to Dean's "concession speech" for the Iowa caucus. I'm soo sick of this. I don't have anything for Dean, I think him, Kerry, and possibly Clark have the best chance against Bush. But c'mon, wasn't it about time you saw someone put a little PASSION into what they're doing?? I sure am. Ha...

Looking for Creative Criticism

Ok, I think I'm finally going to break my anonymity on the board. I figure its been long enough that RossCo. won't take revenge on me for all the places I've filed complaints against them, and all the very nice things I've said about them on this board. Anyways, I figure there's some creative people...

Clinton WAS NOT to blame for 9/11

I've been reading through Lies and the Lying Liars (I know, poo poo, its a comedian trying to do political commentary, but c'mon, this is a thoroughly researched book here. He had a team of Harvard students vetting all his info. So there!) Anyways, I came across two chapters that were the most chill...

Re: Tuition Fees

The state of Georgia had something like this for a bit. It was the HOPE grant, and it covered all of the tuition for any Georgia student to go to any Georgia school. I think its a wonderful idea. Of course, I also think universal health care is also a wonderful idea. (Come to think of it, I think I ...

Re: The Hutton Report

Could this be the end of Blair? I don't know. I sort of hope so because I think he panders to Bush WAY too much, and is dishonest, and has broken his manifesto pledges. Have you heard about the whole Plame Affair over there? Basically the same thing, only instead of outing Kelly, they blew the cove...

Here's a good article putting some of Bush's points in context (and doing a bit of a reality check on them) Its a lot more level headed than my rebuttles could be ;) http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2004-01-21-behind-address_x.htm "A search effort led by CIA appointee David Kay has turned up ...

SOTU STFU

Anyone else catch the State of the Union? I had told myself I wasn't going to watch, but then it was on right after American Idol, so I couldn't help myself. After watching (and groaning) for about 30 minutes, I wondered...would I have the same reaction if the same exact speach was given by a known ...

Killing for a living (in war) is probably one of the most surreal things someone will have to do. It HAS to mess up your head somewhat. It is definitely messed up that things like this happen. But since we (at least I) have never been in the situation where we are told to go to war (and probably kil...

Selling off your old DVDs

I found this nice site that offers a lot more for CDs and DVDs than I've seen elsewhere. I've sold about $90 worth of cds and a few dvds there, and although they haven't recieved my merchandise yet, it seems like a nice service. Tradestop.com Its associated with Gamestop.com, which is one of the big...
