Maybe it's the orange walls in the room, but this song just
keeps coming back to haunt me from the playlist in XMMS.

The Memory Hole is one of my favorite sites for
finding out about interesting omissions in the media.
They posted recently something that reminds me of
the Ministry of Truth, on White House press office
revising quotes before allowing reporters
to publish information.
So for a while I had this little source of amusement called
capalert.org. It contained a two-sentence statement (and
later, a link back to egobsd, after Fark called me a guy
because no-one did a whois on the domain.) I got around
to processing the log files. Share and Enjoy.

So I wore sandals today.
Yesterday I drove about 920 miles: Columbus, OH to
Covington, LA. An I Listened to This Crap post will be
in the works whenever i get my cds out of the car.
Best license plate ever, on a baby-blue cadillac with a
gold-chain license plate holder: 1 TRICK. Didn't see
too much along the lines of weird stuff this trip. Just
tried to put things behind me and drive and drive.
I'm sleeping in the room that used to be mine when I
lived in this house. It's strange because it belonged
to my sister for the last couple of years. It has a comfy
futon now and a sean connery (from russia with love)
poster on the wall. It's also pale orange with lots of
japanese-type junk on the walls.
Crochet Thongs. That cannot be comfortable.
music: magic cornflake: prodigy vs britney, breathe one more time
I just found liquor from Toga. Wow.
Someone at SCO had a few good ideas, really. Let's all go
and sue IBM because we want to make money from
our inherited Unix patents. "Linux couldn't possibly have
gotten this good without incorporating real Unix source code!"
Didn't we go through this with BSD a few years ago?
music: Cassius: Protection
"Ralph's Pews and Church Furniture." was just on the
phone with my mother, and she's like, this minivan just
drove by, and it's filled with pews!
In other news. Operation Get Out of Rochester is in
progress. I will be gone by the end of next week. Mom
offered to get new orleans-y cajun-y food stuff to send
up for whoever helps me move.
music: Andrea Doria: Bucci Bag
What Would Genghis Do? is a lovely piece of speculation
regarding our New Roman Empire.

Thank you soulwax. I spent the part of my evening
when trying not to sing lyrics I hardly know in french
arguing with my alpha (oh yeah, that goes back years)
and slumming on usenet for yet more music.
Back to having no life whatsoever this weekend.
music: New Order: Blue Monday
I almost wore this new pink shirt today. I decided not
to give my dear local friends a heart attack if they saw
me today. (Case of reference; when my picture ended
up in the CSH article in Yahoo Internet Life (oh my god,
such a bad article in a bad magazine) the first thing my
friends said was: "Candice, what on earth are you doing
wearing YELLOW.".) Been listening to a bunch of
Soulwax, some Cornershop, Ladytron and Slowdive.
I need my burner operational again.
(No links. Just babble.)
