We've Been Through Some Crappy Times Before - Austin Lounge Lizards

You say the last election didn’t turn out like you planned. You’re feeling blue and clueless, you just don’t understand. You’re sad, sulky, sullen, moping and morose, You’re woefully weak and weary, semi-comatose You stare at your computer screen devoid of any joy and hope, You’re so depressed, you can’t get dressed, You’re noose is up a rope Just remind yourself, when you can’t stand it any more That we’ve been through some crappy times before, We’ve been though some crappy times before Slavery, unbridled knavery and the civil war.

Don’t stop caring, stop despairing, get up off the floor, Because we’ve been through some crappy times before. Intolerable intolerance has swept across the land, The gospel thumping homophobes have got the upper hand. They are peeping though the windows and they are creeping through the door But we’ve been through some crappy times before. We’ve been through some crappy times before. McCarthyism, Prohibition, and the World Wars.

Were up a the creek, the boat is leaking, still we will reach the shore, But we’ve been through some crappy times before. Reassurances that everything is fine It’s been a while since we were a canary in this mine. When you think it’s really bad, it gets a little worse, But keep on looking forward, though we’re going in reverse. We shout out that the emperors aren’t wearing any clothes, He lies so much that you could hang Your laundry from his nose. The fox is in the hen house and the wolf is at the door, But we’ve been thought some Crappy Times before We have been thought crappy times before, Indiscretion, floods, Depression, Vietnam and more.

The sun has set but don’t forget another day is in store. Because we’ve been thought some crappy times before. Yes we’ve been though some crappy times before Yes, we’ve been though some Crappy times before.

Today I visited the Living Computer Museum, its owned by Paul Allen and Technically part of Vulcan Inc. The best part about the museum is they offer free accounts on the VAX-11/780 they have (Running VMS), the XKL TOAD-1 (TOPS-20) and the DECSYSTEM-20 (TOPS-10).

Something from a very long email I wrote tonight:

"For once, I do not believe that fandom is a collecting ground for the socially inept, its a place where many of us share something in common, a deep connection with something not-totally-human.. and this alone restores my belief in fandom as an entity to enact positive change, validating all the work (and stress and pain) I have done running conventions since 2002 and to a lesser extent - Humanity."

Finding yourself - partially for the first time, and partially again is wonderous.

I'm looking for a DDD Western Wallet, I bought it at a Truckstop in West Texas, and I have not been able to find anything of a similar quality, if anyone can locate something similar to what I have I would gladly purchase it (assuming its the same).

"Cause I know I'm goin' nowhere and anywhere's a better place to be."

Do not look for greater profoundness then is on the surface.

I saw this commerical when I was watching Glee on Tuesday night, and I will point out, besides being fun tio watch, when was the last time you saw a commercial over 30 seconds in primetime?

I'm not a GM Fan, I like Fords, but I love this ad, and it makes me want to go look at a Chevrolet!. I wish they did more advertising like this.

For everyone who does not understand what having ADD is like, click here. It's a blog post I stumbled across today, and while I am not as bad (and can function without meds, after relearning how to live, is why I was unemployed between 2001 and 2002-3) this more or less covers what it is like being in my head.


Scary, eh?

In 2003, I started work on Califur, in 2005, I moved to the Bay Area, in 2007, Seattle, and while I went along I left great trail of carnage as I went, largely trashing my reputation in the process, I will start out right here by saying this, all of this is my own fault. So, to all the people whom I have slighted, upset, acted badly to, or wronged in some way.

I'm Sorry.

Last weekend, I went to the Prancing Skiltare, and I had someone apologize to me for a slight he had been holding a grudge about since either 2004/2005, because I forgot to comp his membership, and I figured if he can apologize for me holding a grudge, I can apologize for all the mistakes I made and carnage I created.

On a related and yet unrelated note:

I also want to thank all my friends who give me a jab in the ribs when I did (and do) something stupid, everyone needs grounding, and I have you guys.

(Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] cahwyguy) From Jerry Brown, candidate for Governor of California: “They're all fighting, everybody's blaming. That's been part of the politics now. If you've noticed, the Republicans, they just want Obama to look bad, then they can get in power, and if they get in power then we'll have to do the same thing to them, and they'll start doing it to us and pretty soon you don't have much of a country anymore.” [source]

I think this is well said, and it is what is frustrating the voters.

Four Furs in the Pittsburgh area are homeless from house fire, this is one of those rare occasions where those of us in the community can get together and help, I donated, so I though I would post and see if anyone else wants to kick in some cash to help them out.
