Curious As A Cat #167

...and a day late. Oh well. The new position at work actually entails doing some work now and then, unfortunately.

  • 1) What is the latest song or band/singer that you have discovered to be perfect for your life right now?

    I can't say I recently discovered them, but I recently bought Walking With Strangers by The Birthday Massacre, and it really fits my mood for the last few months. Bittersweet and melancholy, with catchy riffs and eighties inspired textured sound, it's really speaking to my feelings of malaise and overall disorientation.

  • 2) When do you find yourself the most politically incorrect?

    Generally, when I'm awake and running my mouth off ;) I'm not especially concerned with being "politically correct"; I'm such an outspoken fan of progressive policies that I feel secure in my godless commie credentials. At work I keep to myself, but out'n'about I'm not afraid to call out stupid people. The sad thing is, I kinda enjoy showing people how stupid they are.

  • 3) What book would you rather had never seen the light of day?

    Oh, this is a tossup between the bible and the koran. Hard to say which has inspired more intolerance, ignorance, violence and stupidity. Probably the bible, as it's been around in various incarnations for longer.


  • 4) Show and Tell. What comes to mind first when you see this picture? Or, tell a story if it reminds you of one.

Of course, Dispatches from the Culture Wars came up with some info too good not to share. Above and beyond the usual hypocrisy the right brought out for display, the baseless jingoism and thinly [...]

How many Youtube videos start out “I Lost a bet…”

These are the crucial questions that come up at work. So I decided to find out. The answer: about 6,150. Unfortunately, hilarity does not automatically ensue. The vast majority, at least from my cursory sample, seemed to be of the “I’m too lazy and scatterbrained to gather my thoughts into cohesive or even grammatically correct [...]

Stand Up and Be Counted

pharyngula said it perfectly: This is one of the reasons we godless need to be militant in expressing our ideas: there are children out there right now who have the potential for genius, but their talents are being shunted into the futile wasteland of religiosity. Yes, there are a lot of atheists in the topmost [...]
