|scatter shot arrthymia posing as a sleep schedule
there's a very surreal quality to this morning.
locally, some autistic boy who can't speak has gone missing. a scroll keeps going across the tv screen trying to enlist the residents of south williamsport in a search through the woods. it reads: s. williamsport police are asking for help in finding logan mitcheltree. logan is 9 years old, 4' tall, and believed to be in the s.w. area. southside residents are asked to go outside and search anywhere a small boy might seek shelter. call ... with info.
it's a shame it's only 1 degree outside (come on folks, we're so close! let's just call it 0 already! no?! fine, you nit picky bastards!) with a windchill of minus 15. poor kid. he's probably a autismsicle by now.
pervading the rest of the morning news are strange stories of gore and unfortunate events visited upon unlucky saps all over. something in me says "hey, it's 5:30 am. where are the puppy adoption solicitations and the heart warming stories of do gooders wrapping presents for boys like logan?"
i think from now on i'm going to envision people as the dude from dig dug; weird little flailings tapping out some weird morse code on a great big mudball that isn't that big at all.

i'm listening to a record that sounds as antiquated now as it did the first time i heard it.
i miss people, and then i don't. i care, and then i don't.
i often wish i understood the complex and enlightening writers, but i don't.
i know what's right and wrong, but i feel that that is a given.
i spend too much time wondering what is "smart" and what is "dumb."
i'm happy, but never realize it until it's gone, though i am happy now.
could i list any more dichotomy before you puked on my face?
i care about you no matter how much i've shown otherwise. i miss you, i love you, and hope you are doing well, no matter how much i've shown otherwise. Current Mood: bah

|LIKE A WORKHORSE STANDS FOR MILES.
WASHINGTON (March 4) -- Relatives of victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and a firefighters union said Thursday they're angry that President Bush's new campaign ads include images of the destroyed World Trade Center and firefighters carrying a flag-draped stretcher through the rubble.
They say the ads are in poor taste and accuse Bush of exploiting the attacks. Bush's campaign defended the commercials as appropriate for an election about public policy and the war on terror, saying they were a tasteful reminder of what the country has been through the last three years. The campaign had said in the past that it would not use the attacks for political gain.
''It makes me sick,'' Colleen Kelly, who lost her brother Bill Kelly Jr., in the attacks and leads a victims families group called Peaceful Tomorrows, said Thursday. ''Would you ever go to someone's grave site and use that as an instrument of politics? That truly is what Ground Zero represents to me.''
The first ads started running Thursday on broadcast channels in about 80 markets in 18 states, most of which are expected to be critical to the election, and nationwide on select cable networks. The ads do not mention Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry, focusing instead on improving Bush's image after criticism by Democrats in recent months. Bush is expected to spend a large part of his $100 million war chest on ads.
One of the ads shows the charred wreckage of the twin towers with a flag flying amid the debris. Another ad - and a Spanish-language version of it - use that image as well alongside firefighters carrying a flag-draped stretcher through the rubble as sirens are heard. Firefighters are shown in all the ads.
Harold Schaitberger, president of the International Association of Fire Fighters, on Thursday called the ads disgraceful and said they should be pulled.
''We're not going to stand for him to put his arm around one of our members on top of a pile of rubble at Ground Zero during a tragedy and then stand by and watch him cut money for first responders,'' Schaitberger said. He said his union is politically independent even though it endorsed Kerry and has donated money to Republicans.
Barbara Minervino, a Republican from Middletown, N.J., who lost her husband, Louis, in the attacks, questioned whether Bush was ''capitalizing on the event.''
David Potorti, an independent from Cary, N.C., whose brother Jim died in the north tower, called the campaign's use of the images audacious.
''It's an insult to use the place where my brother died in an ad,'' Potorti said. ''I would be just as outraged if any politician did this.''

|henry miller should have his own postage stamp and sabbath is way better than your significant other
the job market in denton is pretty much non-existant. i've applied at places with diminutive titles such as "sack and save" and "the wing zone" with little success. there is a light at the end of the tunnel however. said salvation is called "the international house of pancakes" where the humans line up like lambs for the slaughter. i'll be serving fat to fat people for $2.38 an hour (+ tips!) can't you hear colonel kurtz whispering "the horror, THE HORROR!" because i damn well can.
job market aside this is a really cool town. it's so cool because in 3 successive weekends i get to see, first, hella (aka the human drummer who emulates an octopus on every amphetamine known to man.), entrance and papa m (though that show was kind of a let down because they cut entrance short) and finally lightning bolt this saturday, all within a bike ride of 10 minutes from my house. it's enough to melt my cold and embittered emo heart once and for all.
the one draw back is that when there isn't a show going on most people head out to the bars on fry street. that whole scene ends up reminding me a whole lot of recess. "that person is cool but... and periods on into infinity.
i've been playing bass a lot as well, it's cool because i'm picking it up rather quickly, and that was unexpected.
and lastly tonight, a quick apology to all of those i've failed to maintain contact with. no job = no money = no internet at home. the only time i get on is when i venture out to the library to check email. if you'd like to maintain more traditional contact feel free to write me at:
denton, tx. 76205
p.s. CONFLAGRATION, CONFLAGRATION, CONFLAGRATION! because i couldn't fit it in anywhere else for my favorite 3-16'er.
