First read this: http://apnews.myway.com/article/20060119/D8F81BBO3.html
Basically, the Administration is going to try once again to clamp down on the dissemination of "inappropriate material," i.e. porn, using a law it can't pass. So ...
You know what? Fuck bush and fuck the administration. This is the last straw, I'm tired as shit of people trying to take away my porn. If some kid wanders onto a porn site, then he probably meant to, because the last time I accidentally stumbled on a real porn site was about a decade ago when I typed in www.whitehouse.com.
If a kid wants to find porn, he's gonna find a way to find porn, and if he doesn't want to, he won't - it's as simple as that. The lengths I've gone to at times, personally, to find porn despite a variety of complex obstacles is embarassing, but I did because I wanted to. And: reality check, teenagers have a sex drive too, so you'd better lock them in that fucking closet when they turn 13, otherwise they might just turn into yet another adult (for instance: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,13509-1995482,00.html).
And, can you really justify a child seeing a boob as inappropriate and illegal whereas the same kid can watch a TV show in which 10 people are killed, not to mention contain low-core sex scenes and constant sex banter? Hell, I can't think of a child who is actually more disturbed by seeing a surprise pair of breasts or simulated fellatio than a guy getting his head blown off. Why? Because nudity and sexuality is a cultural taboo, whereas violence is a universally social crime; ergo the child is actually smarter than the adult. A kid doesn't realize nudity and sex are bad, but still knows that violence is bad; it's as fucking simple as that. Fuck the ostensibly morally superior minority, and bring on the boobs!
All this from a guy who saw Die Hard in the theater when he was 8 years old, too.

The time has come for me to thank everyone who has supported me with this here blog thingy over the past few months. I have made great new friends and have found a cool way to keep in touch with my old friends. I am very happy and thankful that I was able to make a goal of mine from last year come to fruition.
It has been brought to my attention that perhaps I spend a little too much time doing this. I have various other interests and goals, many of which I have stated on this very site in the form of New Year's resolutions.
The time has come for me to make good on those, since I need to be a dedicated and confident man on a mission in order to realize my dreams, as crazy as they may sound to the people I have met along the road of life up until this point in time.
A FEW MONEY SONGS
The following three tracks have been my theme songs for the past year of my life. I had the most horrible things happen to me in 2005, but I was the happiest I've ever been, thanks to a crazy little game called poker.
Download these now, if you don't already have them. If you don't have them, that just means you're either uncool, or you work too hard. Get them while you can, the links only stay active for 7 days.
Nada Surf - Always Love (MP3)
the Killers - Mr. Brightside (MP3)
A LONG WAY TO GO
As Robert Frost once wrote (at least, I think it was him!), I have many miles to go before I sleep. I'm excited as I look forward to the next chapter in my young and unique journey.
I will still continue to post and make updates to the blog, but at nowhere near the frequency of the past few months. Hopefully my friends and fellow contributors can step in for me while I am gone and fill the void, if one can even call it that.
SEE YOU GUYS SOON
Stay classy, everyone. The "ride" is on a break for now, but it will resume sometime in the future, and I promise it will be better than ever.
More blogs about MP3s.

also... this ESPN article on how a Pittsburgh Steelers fan LITERALLY had a heart attack after Jerome Bettis fumbled the ball in the closing seconds of the 4th quarter at the goal line in the Instant Classic game this past Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts helps explain 3 American cultural and sports phenomena:
1. guys will always love their sports and competition, and live and die by their favorite sports teams.
2. Pittsburgh Steelers fans are probably the best, proudest fans in all of football (here's to another Super Bowl Championship for them!)
3. The Indianapolis Colts suck. 0 (ZERO) Super Bowls since the franchise betrayed the city of Baltimore - one of the best sports towns in the history of the United States - and peaced out in the middle of the night in 1983. I call it the Curse of Johnny Unitas.
