Bye Bye Bush Bananza!

If you look to the right side of the screen, just below the calendar, you will see a new addition to the sight. That's right! A counter that counts down the days of when Bush loses his second election! Hurrah! If you would like one for your nifty website, just click on the "Talent Show" link and it will take you to the gentleman that created it. Enjoy!

Also:
Removed the "My Revolution" page. Could never get that damn thing to work. By the time I figured that out, I completely forgot my ideas on what I wanted the revolution to encompass. If I remember correctly, it had something to do with Pink Jumpsuits.

Recomended reading for the month (even though I won't be able to finish it until the semester is over): Giorgio Agamben's "Homo Sacer." My teacher introduced him to me last semester by discussing the concept of the "state of exception." You might of heard of this concept and didn't know it: Nazi concentration camps and Guantanamo Bay are both "states of exception." Good stuff. Maybe i'll tackle it here sometime.

Random Objects

Odd objects appearing on my stoop over the past couple of months:

1. Empty bottle of vodka at the end of a trail of blood leading up to my door.
2. Passed out drunk homeless man who called himself "Mr. Perky."
2. Business records for a ski shop.
3. Big collection of metal clothes hangers.
4. A microwave that had seen its heyday circa 1980 and food cooked around the same time plastered to the inside.
5. A VCR.

How did each of these objects find themselves there? My neighbors and myself have no idea. And strangely, its consistant. One disappears, a new one appears the next day. My stoop seems to be a strange vortex that attracts various objects of junk through, what I'm assuming, is loitering.
