    US Journalists Sentenced To 12 Years In North Korea

    North Korea are well within their rights here, but fortunately for those journalists this has become a politically charged situation. It no longer matters whether they were right or wrong; what matters is that they are American, and as a nation it is in our interest to bully them free. It's nice to be a superpower, sometimes.

    The Greatest

    The greatest what? Be more specific with your self-aggrandizement.

    S.C. governor ordered to take stimulus money

    Our schools are shit; our roads are sub-standard; our politics are embarrassing. Hoo-ray for South Carolina. At least we've got mustard-based barbecue. And Clyburn.

    Asshat charged in slaying of Kansas doc

    Wow, how awful. Kind of ironic that a right-wing nut would shoot someone in a church though. Murder and sacrelige in a single act...he's going to have some explaining to do at the pearly gates.

    Homemade Wolverine Claws

    That's...pretty freaking cool. I wonder if those are legal? Bet a lot of people would buy them if he mass-produced.

    A question about poems...

    Is it alright to make reference to your dreams in them, or is that sort of considered tacky/amateurish?

    The Nova

    Got the urge to play with Photoshop again, and I wanted to make something in multiple parts. This is what came out. Comments, criticism?

    Music you know you should pick up.

    The Mars Volta comes to mind. I like their sound but I'm stingy and kinda broke, and I always forget to borrow their stuff when I'm around someone who's got it. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, too.

    You know I've missed you all.

    Hey, cool. Welcome back.

    So this morning I wake up to a phone call from a friend saying he's coming over immediately to show me a CD he got and why am I asleep at 1:00, etc., etc. So, he brings over this Cursive CD and shows me a couple of songs and, gotta say, they're damn good. Kind of a downer to wake up to, but I was too impressed with their style to care. Maybe I'm late to the party with this, 'cause I remember someone posting their lyrics here a while back, but anyone else heard of/listen to them?

    Driftwood is the song that's been stuck in my head most of the day. The Recluse is another good one.

    EDIT: Well I'll be damned, a double-post. Sorry about that.

    why the animals?!

    That's an interesting and valid argument if you're a Jew or a Christian.

    why the animals?!

    We humans exert a power over our surroundings that's pretty much without precedent on Earth. Other animals might hunt a species or two to extinction, maybe unbalance a local ecosystem, but we do it on a completely different scale. If we don't like what's living around us, we clear it out and change it to suit our needs. The result of that is that other creatures are displaced, sometimes killed off. If we do like what's living around us—say we like the pattern on its skin, or its bones make a nice material for decoration—we can hunt it until the last one is dead. Maybe people feel guilty about that, and so they try to save the last of anything they can. It's hard to deny that some people take it too far. Still, killing everything in our path isn't really a healthy way to go about things, and if nobody cared we really could do long-lasting damage to the planet's biodiversity.

    How have you changed?

    I used to listen to rock pretty much exclusively, and Linkin Park was as soft as I would go. These days I listen to a lot of different artists in different genres, but indie makes up the biggest share.

    We Are Scientists

    Anyone here listen to them? Picked up their CD today, and it's pretty good. First music I've paid for in months. @_@ It reminds me a lot of The Killers.

    Encounters of the wild kind

    I saw falcons circling over my high school a lot. Saw a fox on a nature trail not too long ago, but I'm not sure that really counts.

    Finding new artists

    Hey, that's pretty awesome. My taste in music has shifted pretty dramatically in the past year, so I've been having a hard time finding new artists I'm into. Hopefully this will speed up the process.
