freakin' the suburbs

How? By spending the day out on the town wearing this new bad boy: Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
I donated $30 to Strike The Root during the holiday season and recieved that hip tee for doing so. It didn't elicit as many reactions as my shirt that says liberty in Arabic, but hey, I've only worn it once. For the record, I know better than to wear that Arabic liberty shirt to any of the local watering holes. The last thing I need is for a bunch of drunk "America - Fuck yeah!" types thinkin' that I'm some sort of jihadist or something.

Aside from wearing that shirt and reminding people to keep their hands and laws off other people, I also left behind a few of those MLL pamphlets released by Wally Conger everywhere I went. Unfortunately, too many of the slumbering suburban folk around here are completely blinded by their USSA flag decals and otherwise distracted by the current Stupor Bowl mania (the game is being held about 20 miles south of my current abode) to care about anything, like, serious or something.

If that shirt is not enough to freak you out, maybe the music I'll be blogging about tomorrow will. Some of my favorite freaky musicians from Japan will be the subject of a music post that'll appear here sometime tomorrow evening.

quality quotes

I'm back! My computer is up and running and I will resume regular blogging this coming week. In the meantime, here are a couple of quality quotes from blog posts I've read today.

From Lew Rockwell at the LRC blog:
One example of why they hate William Blum: "America's state religion is patriotism, a phenomenon which has convinced many of the citizenry that 'treason' is morally worse than murder or rape." (Thanks to William Marina.)

From Rad Geek:
Bureaucratic rationality, n.: The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may have something good in their life without permission.

Sorry for no new posts lately...

My computer is currently not working. All of a sudden, I get a message on the screen that says "frequency out of range" when I turn the computer on. I can't do anything. Continuous phone problems where I'm at, lack of internet access aside from going to the local public library (where I'm at right now), and other obligations are keeping me from getting the problem taken care of sooner than I'd like.

I won't be blogging at all until I figure out what the problem is and get it fixed. The blog post I said I was gonna write for the Enlightened Liberty blog will appear there sooner or later - ideas for it are still brewing in my head. It's a little late for posting xmas music though, and my holiday cheer is most definitely gone. Sorry.
