Top Ten Movies 2004

December 28, 2004


Ok, I do watch a lot of movies. So Iíll jump on the Top 10 Movies List Bandwagon. I thought about just copying the wifeís list, but that would be a cop-out. There’s a couple of old movies here that I honestly had never seen until anna made me watch them for my own good.

Top Ten Lists

December 28, 2004

Since I donít listen to much new music, I cannot compile a top ten albums list. Instead I am doing a top ten best moments in 2004 list. Itís kind of therapeutic, as I have the holiday blues.

Oh, and I left out the numbering system and actually picked twelve moments, because I can.

Slept in and feelin’ good

December 25, 2004

Amazing. My family finally figured it out. We always argue at Christmas about how early me and the wife should show up so the nephews can open presents. We want to sleep in, they want us there at six a.m.. So this year we opened gifts last night and this morning I slept in, and am now drinking coffee and christmas blogging with the wife. So peaceful. To all (if there are any) my christian readers, Happy Baby Jesus’ Birthday. To the rest of you, we got screwed. I mean come on, on a Saturday? What the fuck good is a holiday on the weekend? Already off work, out of classes. Christ in hell.

they must love us down there

Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t posted on Iraq in a while. That’s because Juan Cole does such a great job. I want to continue focusing on this hemisphere, since few other blogs I read do.

evil man

December 19, 2004

Man, it seems everyone in the world is learning to hate the U.S., and with good reason. Our government continues to piss on the international community, ignoring international laws and saying the hell with treaties. As is the standard practice in this administration, one of the bastards who has helped make the world a more dangerous place appears to be getting promoted.

shit

December 15, 2004

Ok, so itís late and I’m a little drunk. Anyhow, I’m sitting here surfing and I came to a weird conclusion that I’m hoping is wrong. See, President Bush pushes faith-based crap. And one of his things is that religious organizations can discriminate in their hiring practices.

rapture monkeys

December 15, 2004

Holy handgrenades. I think I just found the scariest christians in the world. Seems there is 20 million christain zionists in America who support Israel because of biblical prophecy. Only they don’t support the Jewish faith, because in the end of times all jews must be converted or burn in hell. These people approve of the wall, the killing of muslims and pray for the end everyday. Let me say that again: these rapture monkeys want war, and I mean the war to end all wars, are working diligently to move more jews to Israel, and are against any kind of peace in the middle east.
