Irregular Roundup #6

Wow, this is beyond stupid. My Life is Average: “a place to share your everyday mediocrity. It is a place to post the mundane things in your boring, normal life, and read about other people’s average lives.”

WTF. I freakin’ hate the Catholic Church. To all my Catholic friends: I’m sorry, but how can you be a part of something that allows the abuse of children and then covers it up to protect its own reputation? I just don’t get it.

Twitter profile pics: my Twitter pic is #5, “The People Who Love The Close Up,” ‘cept mine is really close up, lol.

The break-down of California’s Prop.8 court decision. I am, to say the least, displeased with the result, but at least they didn’t null and void all the marriages that have already take place.

ANIME! High Art and Pop Culture at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Anyone been to this exhibition and want to tell me about it?

[Probably not safe for work, just fyi:] Now this is the kind of domination I can condone. ^___________^

Also, I was watching this and thinking the entire time, “You know, that looks like Robert Downey, Jr.” …and then I realized it was him. Sheesh. Took me longer than the whole freakin’ song to figure it out. I’m way slow.

No matter how many times I’m told that “writing is not therapy”—I just can’t believe it. Good to know that someone agrees with me. Speaking of (creative) writing, can you teach it? I mean, generally, do you think it can be taught? (My being in a creative writing program doesn’t stop me from thinking not sometimes, but that’s just me.) It’s that kind of article, however, that drives me crazy. People (including me) are already enough on the fence; we don’t need decent writers not getting instruction just because they think it can’t be any better.

In case you don’t know the anatomy of a “child” pornographer. Seriously, can anyone give me a good reason why we’re all gasping and clutching our pearls on this one? I mean, they’re teenagers. Heeeellllooo. (Although, I do tend like like Reason Magazine for most things. I just hate the “omgz, but think of the children” argument.)

If you just want something to irritate you, have an article about female Marines and “lax” sex practices. And alcohol. And STDs. Of course it’s about the women. It always is.
