The 1/2 hour news hour

Holy shit did anyone happen to be watching fox news last night. I caught the 1/2 hour news hour and it blew my mind. The show, first off, is a blatant ripoff of the shows like The Daily Show, Weekend Update, and other such shows. But those shows appear on Comedy Central and Saturday Night Live. This was on Fox News…. Can you think of any other comedy show on any other news network? Secondly, every joke contained obvious political undertones and even the “irony” was lost from the intended sarcasm because the conservative agenda could be seen a mile away. The subject of the entirety of the jokes and trash-talking included electric cars, hybrid and biodiesel technology, a fictional account of ed begley jr getting arrested and raped by gangs in jail, everyone in hollywood, doctor-patient confidentiality, global warming, freedom of speech, Barak Obama, ACLU related civil rights amendments, essentially anyone and everything that doesn’t embody what FOX represents. I find it insulting that Fox feels the need to fund and air a show like this on their own news channel and act as though they don’t hide political agendas in their news broadcasting. The show laid out several well structured logical arguments which I thought were well put and totally agreed with… bizarre thing was that they played a laugh track at the end of it. Those were when the supreme court opinions were being explained.

Heres a link so you can investigate further.

We’re History

The current highly charged international political climate and the rapidity with which changes of epic proportion are made has provided me with a sense that my role as an individual deserves further reflection.
I’m now 23. Yesterday for the first time, sitting down with my mother (52?), I somehow felt like a peer. I guess I’ve come across enough bullshit in my life to connect with her on that basic level. Talking about the advance of technology brought further realizations. For one, there is a generation younger than myself. Across the modern world they have access to a world of technology and resources that were only first becoming available to a priviliged few during the time of our childhood. There was a time when we were that younger generation with new technology and resources but those were not as developed and as widely available.
Sounds like a History Lesson… I know. That is why this is so striking to me. We are now a generation with a few lines in the history books. We’ve seen some History made in our time, we’ve been a part of History in our time, now it is our time and it is within our means to create History. What defines our generation and what resources are available to us? Will we sit back passively and watch as our history unfolds on the television? Alternatively, will we actively pursue the opportunities provided to us? What will our chapter in History reveal about human nature, what secrets will we unlock? And what role as individuals will we take as we shape the character of the human species and the complex natural systems of our Earth.

Who Wants This

Now who wants the same shit from Monday to Sunday
Some may, but some way, it’s gonna stop some day
Through my window sometimes I see visions
Of battalions and civilians and can’t tell who are the villains
What’s the difference – we’re all in this when shit’s hittin’
We all got courtside seats to Armageddon
We all gotta walk if the engine stops
We’re all gonna fall when the bubble pops
CPA’s, VP’s, VIP’s, NYPD
Supreme court justices to peanut galleries
Presidents descended from family dynasties
To the homeless resting on cardboard in the streets
Cuz you can get robbed blind by Wall street banking
Worse than at St. Mark’s and Franklin
Thanks to those stickup kids in ties and white collars
Who worship the almighty dollar, so holla!
Who Wants This

I alone

Its easier not to be wise
And measure these things by your brains
I sank into eden with you
Alone in the church by and by

Ill read to you here, save your eyes
Youll need them, your boat is at sea
Your anchor is up, youve been swept away
And the greatest of teachers wont hesitate
To leave you there, by yourself,
Chained to fate…

– Live: I Alone, Throwing Copper

Pathless Woods

there is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
there is a rapture on the lonely shore.
there is a society where none intrudes,
by the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not the man less, but nature more,
from these our interviews, in which i steal,
from all i may be, or have been before,
to mingle with the universe, and feel,
what i can ne’er express, yet cannot all conceal.

-From Childe Harold

-Lord Byron
