A funny thing happened

mood: impressed
So my mother was dragging me to the doctors, and she had this CD on. A guitar was playing a VERY familiar melodic pattern, so I hummed along, "finishing" the rest of the melody. But lo and behold... a few measures later, it was CLEAR what it was.

An instrumental version of Yerushalayim shel Zahav.

I asked her where I got the CD, and she said it was given to her by a friend of a friend. I asked her if this person was Jewish or Israeli, and she apparently was not. Apparently, it was a compilation of songs that just "sounded good". Amazing Grace was Track 1!

Things so Jewish could be so integrated into Gentile society, and they wouldn't even realize it.

Last night, I was out with my mother, as I needed that post-crash comfort moment. It just happened to be a charity concert for the Chinese Bette Midler - or if you prefer, Celine Dion. Glam, decades-old showtunes, you name it. Which means that the only thing that would've made it more gay was if I had been watching Rodger's and Hammerstein with a male nurse's cock in my mouth.

I may have just heard a song that sounded as if it was the theme song of the Messiah, if he was Ultraman. Or Dschinghis Khan.

What part of "after the fact" do you not understand? Privacy options, shmoptions. While you're at it, look up "accountability".

When you're surrounded by Ashkenazic Jewish young men, a population famous for its white-boy syndrome... amateur breakdancing (OMGLOOK6STEP) seems impressive by comparison.

Why I am NOT for Ben Cardin   
09:59pm 12/09/2006
 
mood: disappointed
It's not just his wishy-washy, moderate positions on the war and health care, either.

Throughout the history of the MD senatorial campaign, we hear that the race was between two Democrats: Kweisi Mfume and Ben Cardin. Others like Allan Lichtman and Josh Rales are conveniently left out of the equation. But that's not it. Cardin has been chosen - and YES, ANOINTED - by the party machine as their favorite. This anointment has not only enabled Cardin to forget doing actual campaigning, but it has forced the others, including Mfume, to campaign twice, sometimes ten times, as hard.
No, it doesn't stop their, either! Cardin's supporters say that he is "the one", not because he was dressed up by the party machine, but because he's a "strong candidate". Yes, the man who has not made any effort to do some real campaigning, but rather sending his supporters to rally support, is a "strong candidate". Not only that, the others are "weak candidates" who won't be able to stand up to Uncle Mike, from whom there's some threat, likely imagined, that he stands a chance of winning the race, and thus the other candidates would "spoil" the race. I met one - TWO - of these assholes today.
Could this be any further from reality? First of all, this assumes that during the primaries, where we are of one party, that we should vote "strategically" instead of the way we like. Second, it claims that one could win a competitive race without doing any real campaigning? Hell... without any drive to WIN? Where has Cardin appeared to make speeches? Where are the town hall meetings featuring Ben Cardin? Surely he didn't go beyond the Baltimore-Montgomery belt. Has Cardin even run any ads? I didn't vote for Josh Rales, but I have to admire him, because at least he ran ads - and good ones, too. Does Cardin just think he can glide by on endorsements, "name recognition", and the party's favor? Even Mfume has a comparable amount of endorsements and "recognition", but guess which one he doesn't have. Third, it makes the mistake that "Ben Cardin" has even a modicum of "strength", whereas I heard no more an articulate and passionate man than Allan Lichtman, and after that, Rales. But Cardin? Come ON! If there ever was a more self-entitled candidate... not even Bob Casey was this bad.
So that's that. In the end, I will vote for the Democrat in the general, because after all, it is an "anyone but Uncle Steele" race. I would even vote for Cardin if I have to, but not Zeese. But Maryland Democrats have a LOT of lessons to learn in the wake of this primary.

Something to think about   
01:23am 31/07/2006
  Four guys at a bar.

Al's a big guy, very strong, very tough,made some mistakes recently but overall been regarded as a good guy.His buddy Ian is smaller, wiry, pretty tough himself and always readyfor a scrap. Larry is kind of the helpless one of the group in a scrap,and currently has his brother Harry as a roommate who runs all overhim. Harry's kind of a sadistic asshole.

After a long nightsdrinking, Harry gives Ian a vicious jab to the ribs. Ian's pissed andwants to take a swing, but Harry dodges behind Larry.

Ian raises his fist, and warns Larry "Kick Harry's ass, our your both meat!"

Alis now steadfastly paying attention to his beer. HHe's not fond ofHarry, and suspects him of being friends who Ira and Stan, two guys hehates - so if Harry gets his ass kicked, it's fine with Al.

Alot of folks at the bar want Al to intervene. Even the ones who don'tlike Al know he's really the only guy who can step in between Ian andanyone else, if he goes they'll follow. But they're afraid of steppingin themselves, both because they'll get pasted and because Ian'sfriends might give them guilt trips, even if they felt like they wereacting in Ian's best interests.

So, the bar watches as Ianstarts beating the shit out of Harry. Its ugly, they can hardly believeIan's getting that vicious. Even those who wanted to step in on Ian'sside after the jab are backing away.

Meanwhile, Harry keeps Larry between him and Ian, stepping out every once and a while to take a cheap shot to keep Ian pissed.

Ira and Stan, observing from the other side of the bar, just keep their distance, and laugh.
