So, I see the old RRS is still alive and kicking!..........well, ALIVE anyway.
How's all my heathen brethren? Still spreading the word of total dismissal of higher powers? The expulsion of divinity? The unapologetic bashing of zealotry? Are the sodomite Catholic priests still keen to buggering children with their disgusting scepters of pedophilic invasion? As for the RRS members is that Nony guy still hating on the Jews? Brian37 still talk in a mishmash of word vomit that passively ignores people while satisfying his own string of non sequitur? Is Beyond Saving still a hard-headed sack of political rebuttal that borders on stone age progression of the human mind and innovation? Silly me, of course all that is still going on and those people are all the same. I wouldn't have it any other way.
I'm back, ladies and germs...
...and a bit premature, but it's cool.
I got word from the other side that I would be returning home within two weeks and I had to settle up here, gather my reports, etc. Yeah, I had to really scramble for my trip.
So, first off, I had to go thank all the dignitaries for their hospitality. They thanked me for being so friendly to their culture and not causing any trouble. Also, for soaking up as much intel as possible so that others could know about this place and maybe learn a thing or two. They told me they know their way of life isn't perfect, but they live in a tolerant and mostly rational society. Sure, they have their problems, but what social order doesn't to some degree? I told them that I look at them and see a potential future for America if we pull our heads out of our asses. I said I'm not very optimistic and things look very bleak, whether we're religious or not and politically active or not.
Well, it's certainly been very interesting lately in this place. The people have pretty much accepted me without going through a thorough background check or asking me a lot of questions. They just seem to amalgamate anything and everything that seems non-threatening. Granted, I was KICKED through the temporal nexus so to speak that brought me here, but we're just splitting hairs at this point.
So, yes, I hope everything has been good for the rest of you. To those mocking my experience in this place as a bad acid trip, you can go fuck yourselves. Thank you. Now then, I know I haven't been updating at all or lurking around here, but I've been busy with some dignitaries here and they recently invited me to one of their "Civil Commons" gatherings which is what I think we should call ours if such a thing existed in politics today. No, what WE have is arrogance, greed, lobbyists, Wall Street banksters and liars. Ain't America grand?
*Gets kicked through the portal*
*dusts self off*
Shit, at least they could have gently shoved instead of being practically militant-stomped into this UNKNOWN WORLD full of POSSIBLY DANGEROUS BEINGS, not to mention UNSTABLE LAWS OF PHYSICS. If they wanted this place traversed so badly, they could have sent a fucking homeless guy or a prostitute or an Asian kid or----
Guess I was thinking out loud again. Yeah, it's your old esoteric, grumpy, overall pain in the royal ass of a pessimist and grammar nazi Sage. If you hadn't guessed by now, I'm in kind of a sticky situation. Awhile back, I involuntarily became part of a very hush-hush operation involving the exploration of a recent tear in the universe located due north of (LOCATION REMOVED) in a place called (LOCATION REMOVED). Long story short, I woke up one day and heard a knock at my door. I opened it and there were two well-dressed chaps holding papers up for me to sign explaining almost nothing as to why they were there. Lucky for them, this year has been nothing short of awful with almost nothing going on whatsoever so, I signed the documents without reading them, they took me into their sleek nothing-conspicuous-about-this-at-all black Oldsmobile and away I went. We didn't really move per se; we just...arrived. I threw up. One of them handed me a towel.
I've been saying ever since SOPA and PIPA were taken off the docket that we will see a return in some form. We won't know when and we won't know how, but it will be back. A lot of people knew and we were fearing the day that a manifestation would rear it's ugly head and threaten to infiltrate our online privacy and slit it's proverbial throat. Behold your harbinger, your ruin, your reason to seethe hatred and bid farewell to the last bastion of anonymity: CISPA has risen.
We had no vote on this matter, we were not informed of it's existence and we were not alerted that it would be voted on without our consent. Our government has pulled the carpet right out from under us AGAIN and everyone will just let it happen and act as if we still have anything regarding liberty or freedom left in this shallow husk of a country. If SOPA and PIPA were the WMDs that we successfully diffused, then CISPA is the "Tsar Bomba" that couldn't be reached in time.
We'll all feel the fall out from this soon; count on it.
I'm not sure how many of you are avid show watchers on cable or what types of movies you all fancy, but I like to think I'm pretty diverse as to what I check out and try to give everything a chance. The latest shows I've been keeping track of has been Sons of Anarchy, Weeds, Breaking Bad, Dexter, Fringe, American Pickers, Pawn Stars and Game of Thrones. Right now, most of these shows are either in production for the next season, extending their launch times for a new episode or they are in negotiations to see if they'll be given the green light for an additional run so, I've been looking for a decent show that has been getting praise from audiences as being really solid in storytelling, plot and originality among other characteristics.
Everyone here loves bacon, I'm sure. If you don't, you're not human and must be destroyed immediately (unless you're Muslim, Islamic or Jewish; you just have to be shown the error of your ways, in that case). Bacon is one of those foods that goes well with pretty much anything; ice cream, waffles, donuts, cupcakes, chips, toothpaste...ok, maybe not toothpaste, but it still exists. There is a bacon craze in this nation so bad that everyone is experimenting with new ways to infuse it with their favorite foods; some are a good idea, but most aren't. Hence, the latest concoction to try and monopolize on the idea brought to you by a staple that needs no introduction in the fast food industry; Jack-In-The-Box.
I was a little surprised that JITB made the first move regarding this tasty breakfast treat because they aren't really known for doing something this crazy; we leave that to the likes of McDonald's, Burger King and Taco Bell. Of course, they have threw me for a loop before with their "Jumbaco" campaign in late 2011 (two tacos in between a Jumbo Jack; was swiftly nixed) and their disturbingly good pumpkin pie shake AKA sugar coma on steroids. Once more, they are shaking things up, and I mean that both ways, with the all new "bacon shake." http://sfist.com/2012/02/03/sfist_reviews_the_bacon_shake_by_ja.php#photo-1
These days, I've been pretty out of it and my writer's block has really escalated lately. The only thing really keeping my sanity in check is music, it seems. I'm not smoking weed anymore due to personal reasons that I won't go into, but I think I'm beginning to feel the effects of not indulging. Not withdrawals or anything like that, but you notice a mind shift that happens after you stop and it becomes more and more gradual the more you discontinue use. I have so much stress and confusion swirling around in my head that I can barely see straight. In a nutshell, the future looks very uncertain for me right now and it terrifies me. Hey, most people don't have the courage to admit that.
I'm not sure about the rest of you, but I find the entire ritual behind getting all hyped up about a new year INCREDIBLY pretentious in every regard. Maybe it's because I'm getting older and the more I learn and absorb, the more I see how retarded these meaningless celebrations are and why they don't contribute to anything except waste and potential trouble. Every single New Year's Eve party I've ever been to has ended up with dumb asses puking all over the place, drunk morons, fights, horrendous music, ugly bitches hanging all over me and terrible drinks. Not only that, but the next day, you read about all the dip shits that died driving home drunk, the fools arrested at checkpoints, people getting shot by stray bullets from guns others fire up in the air or random acts of "celebration" which is just another way of saying "arson, rape, manslaughter or defacing property."
Now, most would just be saying "well, you're just sore about not being invited anywhere because you're a curmudgeon and no one likes you." I'm realistic first of all and second, I was invited to Las Vegas for New Year's this time around with a group of about seven people; some I know and some I barely know. I came very close to packing my bags, but ended up not going for a few reasons.
I was at Costco the other day and I was checking out the latest in new releases ranging from "Baby Momma: The Reason My Womb is Now Barren" and "Dictators: Dead and Loving It" when I came across a new book by Bill Maher. Imagine my surprise to see not only his first book in about six years, but a book that didn't reflect the backwoods region I currently reside in; ignorant, illiterate and pregnant.
