|The Designer Has Quit
I have written some lengthy resignation letters in my past highlighting the improper practices of the workplace but nothing as beautiful (and concise) as this:
I just wish I could read what comes up when you click the HR button.

|Is there anything that ISN'T Communism in this country?
We hear a lot of talk (if you listen to pill popping pigs or that Roman Catholic Turned LDS with a family history of mental illness (also I heard that Glenn Beck Raped and Murdered a Young Girl in 1990
it's just what I've heard, but he hasn't denied it)...but I digress, there is a lot of talk about everything being an act of Communism and that this country is going to hell because of it...this isn't the first time people have taken to the street and shouted "Communist!"

|Real women have curves and other anti-feminist statements
This is something I have been thinking about for quite a while. There seems to be large group of women out there who feel the only way to make themselves feel better is by trashing another group of women. You have the larger more curvier women stating 'real women have curves' and then you have thinner women calling the larger ones 'fat' and making other demeaning comments.
Why is this? Do larger women actually think in order to be a 'real' women you must be large and/or curvy? Does this mean naturally thinner women are less feminine?
It just seems odd that the biggest enemy of women is women. Why can't women just accept each other. I thought that possibly this was in order to attempt to convince guys that they should desire a specific 'type' but this just doesn't make sense. For every body type out there there are guys of every body type that desire it (these varied female body types) if you don't believe this don't open up the latest Maxim magazine instead head over to your nearest adult video store and check out the different videos that appeal to every taste a person can have, they wouldn't make these if there wasn't someone who wanted to purchase them.
Guys don't (for the most part) do this. Sure some male might comment on the weight of another male, but he doesn't call into question his ability to be a "man" because of his size.
In an ideal world (not holding my breath) someone could accept their beauty without requiring a comparison. Doug Stanhope, the comedian, actually posted something similar to this recently, his fans rarely say "I love your work" without following it up with "Lisa Lampanelli sucks!" or "Dane Cook blows!" Now the fan might believe both of these things, but are they not two completely separate thoughts? Can someone like both Lisa Lampanelli and Doug Stanhope? Of course they can. Couldn't the same thing be said about woman? "You are beautiful", rather than "You are beautiful because you aren't a skinny bitch".
It's no wonder women have such a negative body self-image when they've never been told that everyone has beauty. If your significant other says "Natale Portman is beautiful" or even if they acknowledge the beauty of someone at the mall and this person looks nothing like you does not mean they do not think that you are also beautiful. You can like Sushi and still like Chicken Tika Masala.
I guess this summarizes to I wish people could accept their beauty for what it is without requiring the trashing of another person or group of people...but I'm sure I'll be waiting for quite a while for this.
Yes, I know another long winded post from me...so anyone? What is your take? I have never pretended to have my finger on the pulse of women in America so it is quite possible I'm missing a huge glowing fact...if that's the case please let me know.

Anyone remember seeing Gremlins 2 in the theater?
There was a scene when they go into a theater and the film melts and Hulk Hogan shouts at the projection booth.
For the Home video release they removed that scene and added a scene where the cassette tape "breaks" and you see John Wayne interacting with a gremlin.
The DVD did nothing special, it shows the theatrical version with the VHS version available as an easter egg (special features -> click on the gremlin's claw)
A fan of the movies created the scene that SHOULD have been done for the DVD release:

|Everybody can hear the Joker laugh, but only Harley can see him cry
I just watched a short french film titled Ashes to Ashes. It is a fan film that takes place in the Batman universe after Alfred is murdered and Batman snaps. The look and feel is very reminiscent of Sin City and is very dark in content.

|Completed: A Snowden Rite Of Passage
My family is not one steeped in tradition...my first beer with my family is far far before anything that could be considered a "you're a man now" type of celebration...
But today I finally completed the only tradition we have;
My first appointment with a dermatologist for skin cancer and a visual confirmation (sent for biopsy) of one basal cell carcinoma and a nodular tumor that is more than likely benign that was also sent off for biopsy. The nice thing is the BCC, which is on my neck, is still very small and should easily be removed. The nodular tumor is on my nose.
So I have joined the club of 30% of Caucasians and 100% of the last 3 previous generations of my family.

|Reason two why I don't like Sotomayor
She sides with police corruption
It seems she defaults to the opinion that "cops never lie", now I don't think cops always lie, but I think if a jury who heard the entire case sides with the victim, then two of the three judge panel side with him, possibly she is the only one NOT seeing the forest for the trees. It's unfortunate that the two other judges changed their opinion and continued the abuse this gentleman had received for attempting to do the right thing.
It's like a knock and announce case where the cops claim they knocked and announced they are entering a premises, I tend to believe that they did announce themselves because I think it is safer for them. In this case I tend to believe the individual stated that "it's an emergency" because, honestly why wouldn't he?
Unfortunately the only thing the GOP seems to be focusing on is her affiliation with La Raza and other bullshit...the fact is that if they examined her voting record for just one second they might actually push through her nomination as the final nail in the coffin on an already Conservative court.

|Not a huge fan of Obama's choice for Supreme Court
While not agreeing with someone on one decision isn't usually a reason to dislike the person, when it comes to puritanical censorship I think one issue is enough.
Sonia Sotomayor made a decision to prevent Spencer Tunick's
(NSFW) massive nude photo shoot in New York City, if you are not familiar with Tunick's work he has had over 75 massive nude photo shoots since 1994 all over the world. With the massive amount of people of all body types shown in his work it is a wonderful melding of acceptance of natural beauty and the human form turned into abstract form.
Sotomayor, along with the other two judges decided that the people who lived in the neighborhoods "right to privacy" trumped the artists freedom of expression. I think this is a horrid decision. The nude body is not pornographic, it is not something that needs to be shielded from everyone's eyes. The photo shoots are not lewed, or sexual in any way. Because of this I hope she is not confirmed and Obama offers us someone with a little more respect for the constitution and its amendments (Including, but not limited to the Second Amendment) Current Mood: annoyed

|I'm not ready yet to make a long winded post
Having epic fucking battles at work, involving Union's, Human Resources, Department heads and more...and having only slept 2 hours today I figure I will leave "real" posts for later.
I don't know why they have decided that there is a need for a remake (Oh sorry, "Re-Imagining") of "A Nightmare On Elm Street" and I think whoever thought they did should be chased down by a mob and burned to death...uh...only to start inhabiting the dreams of the children of the people who did that? Or something. It's written by the guy who did such a great job with the screenplay for "Doom" (the movie, based on the game, not the song sung by Gir) (He did also do Arachnophobia...19 YEARS AGO!)
The only cool thing about it is useless trivia...Freddy is being played by Jackie Earle Haley, a name that isn't on the top of any ones must see list BUT was friends with Johnny Depp in 1984 and auditioned for a part in the original Nightmare on Elm Street (He didn't get one). But that is not all...at the time Johnny Depp wanted nothing to do with acting, then why was Johnny Depp there? Jackie Earle Haley needed a ride to the audition. Johnny was picked out, asked to read, given a part and went on to be Johnny Depp...his friend has worked...but did not go on to be Johnny Depp.
(To be fair Jackie Earle Haley has 41 acting credits on IMDB and Johnny Depp has 48...but Depp's are: Don Juan, Ed Wood, Ichabod Crane, Willy Wonka Jack Sparrow, and the fucking Mad Hatter while Haley's are:Cousin Donald, Turk, Little Joe, and Seventeen and Desperate) OK...I guess that wasn't me being fair...*shrug*
And there we go...fluff that wasn't restricted to 140 chars...I think there is a good reason I should be restricted to only 140 chars Current Mood: tired

|twitter feeds and lj
When I originally setup my twitter feed to post directly to lj I tweeted a couple times a week and all from txt messages while at work...seeing as though I never post to lj anymore it was handy to post a little bit of my nightly goings on in the only level 1 trauma center in new mexico. Weather it be observations on human behaviour or things that pissed me off (sometimes one in the same) occasionally someone following me on lj would comment to the 140char post and a conversation would grow. Other times this did not happen...recently as more people have begun to enjoy the ease of using twitter versus the clumsiness of writing a blog post from their phone I have started to follow more people and at the same time started to reply to others.
As of right now my twitter feed will no longer be broadcast to lj...also as of right now I am going to openly post whatever I want to both, there will be NO direct attacks on others with enough information for outsiders to know who I am talking about. But I am fucking sick of not having any outlets where I can't post what I want, how I want, when I want without some drama being stirred. I will not lock posts to spare people...I will also not hold my tongue in replies back...as I said...if someone decides to comment on my post and put the spotlight on them they can then be singled out in my response.
If this is not something that appeals to you today would be the day to unfriend me from lj and unfollow me from twitter...
Posted from my phone...a 140 char of this would be:
No more sparing feelings...if you don't want to read uncut observations please unfollow Current Mood: aggravated
