all this flippin optimism is enough to make me want to vomit.

everybody has this idea that obama is some kind of messiah or something, if so he is a lying dirty bastard christ.

ya'll voted for the greater (prettier and more appealing) of two evils, not the lesser. That's progress for lucifer's kingdom right there for ya.

The DOW... its not over 9000.
(Fyi, the last time that happened was in 2003 or so, but that wasn't after as large a height.)

recommended: cash out your investments now and spend them on hard goods, you know, whatever you've been wanting to get for a while....or use it to get out from under debt.... because it won't be much longer before that money is all gone completely and your dollar won't be worth shit anyways.

Some time ago I updated my profile with the information that if you search for my first and last name in parenthesis on Google, my journal is the first result. This is still the case. I'm still not sure how I feel about it.

I made some ridiculously small textual changes to the way my journal is displayed. Nothing to get excited over.

I just watched Master and Commander: Far Side of the World again recently. I know I've watched it plenty of times but I really enjoy that movie. I was thinking about why that is. I realized that I enjoy it because it is an accurate portrayal of a way of life that did exist. The characters and the plot may all be purely fictional, but people like that certainly did exist, and the movie has real historical references involved also. It's not fantasy, it's not a make believe picture of history, more of a matter of fact illustration of what it really may have been like. Not much in the way of glory or heroes, not much in the way of crazy spirituality, just men doing what they have to do.

I was also thinking about the real men of that time in history. Men in those days, especially men out on ships where everything depends on the wind being right to get you to your next location... those men knew they needed God. They may not have prayed to the right god, but at least they couldn't get off saying "Well I have technology and a secure retirement and a cushy job so I don't need any sort of god at all except what makes me feel good". A man on a ship driven by the wind knows he damn well better pray to something, because he isn't going to control the wind, and he isn't going to get anywhere without it.

Mammon - that is, the power to live without faith - is definitely getting deeper and deeper on the world today and making it much easier to live without God.

I was watching a documentary on this Armenian composer (the guy that wrote Sabre Dance). They mentioned how he thought the things happening with Stalin and everything were "justifiable". Isn't that always the case? Who, being made comfortable by a government doing horrible things, likes to think that those things are really evil? Who doesn't prefer to think there must be good reasons for the things their government does? Like the Germans and Russians, who from today will history look back on and think, "How could they not have known??? "

I think I must have too many icons already, because I must come up with excuses to use most of them.

See I was fine with Livejournal when paid users got 15 pictures and free users got 3. Now I get 49 pictures because I have had a paid account so long (mainly because I use it for my email address.)

I've managed to upload 24 out of my 49 pics. How many of them do I really use? 10 or 15 at a stretch doing my best to use different icons?

Maybe my icons just suck and I can't use them for anything. hmm.

I have found a scary new toy.

Maybe I will fill up all 49 of my user icons afterall..... but then again maybe not before they give me more of them for another whatever length of time having a paid account.
