|04:10 pm - The Birth of the True !|
“Second” the first to My Love’s
(Lips’ Legs’ Mind’s) Birth... Day!
Today I celebrate the day my love first kissed the earth with Her Presence.
Defying Passionately, Officially (!) all odd and expectation; yet
Resplendently, Magically, Irreverently, Irrefutably,
a-wonder; eloquently mending this heart asunder with...
her Birth, her Debut... her Opening... of it... of her... of me... of my
This, in deed. Revelation. Celebration. Certainly, a
Happy Birthday, Dearest Victoria!
Current Mood: enthralled
Current Music: my beating heart - to the tune of Aztec Camera (of course)

|12:18 pm - Yes, America (or at least NYC) there is H.O.P.E. !|
If you're bi (coastal) and thought you can't wake up to a good laugh on a Monday, then jumping on the NYC Knitting Factory email list just might do it for you; it did for me:
Knitting Factory Newsletter 11/05/04
Whats up NYC? Ill tell you whats up! Instead of just sitting idly by as the strings of the puppet continue to get pulled we are going to keep on working to make this a better world! We here at the Knitting Factory are not going to let what has to be one of the biggest disappointments in our nations history pass without incident. We as a people deserve better, America! We WILL NOT let this tragedy just happen! Yes, I am talking about the Ashlee Simpson debacle (or am I?)!
Knitting Factory along with H.O.P.E. (Horrified Observers of Pedestrian Entertainment) are offering the good people of America who have been duped into buying Ashlee Simpson's CD a reprieve; the opportunity to turn in her CD for one of a higher entertainment quality [!]
Just bring your Ashlee Simpson CD down to the Knitting Factory Box Office between 10 and 5 PM Mon thru Sat and get one by the likes of Elvis Costello, The Ramones, X, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, Aretha Franklin, Mr. Bungle, Ray Charles, Abe Lincoln Story, Grateful Dead, Neil Hamburger, Joni Mitchell, and Brian Wilson (while supplies last / selections vary) courtesy of Rhino Records in replacement.

|09:01 pm - That's Right, Folks — RED SOX KICK F$%KING ASS !!!|
"Red Sox rout Yankees in Game 7 to finish greatest comeback ever!"
The wild-card Red Sox became only the third of 239 teams in the four major North American leagues to overcome a 3-0 deficit in a best-of-seven series and win. (None of the previous 25 major league teams to fall behind 3-0 even forced a series to seven games!)
It's been 100 years since Boston last won a pennant in New York on the final possible day and they did it tonight (it's about time!) 10-3.
All this joyously copied out of context from THE STORY.
Current Mood: ecstatic

LA Weekly: Page 42. Turn to it. It's brief but worth it; and may just allay your fears that Mr. Kilmer has gone off the deep end ;-). At any rate, there are a couple of perceptive gems in this interview, including this, at the close:
"So as recently as last year, having been in Baghdad, you're reading the Bible, which our government is constantly invoking...
"I'm not surprised by our government, which had a dubious beginning, starting with whether or not he was really elected president... Not to be self-serving, I think why The Ten Commandments is so valuable is that everyone knows, deep in their heart, knows that we need to obey the law, and the law is protection, and all these geniuses [the Founding Fathers] designed laws to apply reason and conscience to protect us from ourselves – those guys were rich too, they owned 70 percent of the country, but they devised this set of laws...And now there's a responsibility we have, because of our power, we should be more cautious...I kind of feel sorry for George. He really just wants to be commissioner of baseball, poor guy, and they keep asking him all these difficult questions. I get this very strong sense that it's a very tight ship and that the president is the spokesperson for the few people who are running the thing. That's no secret."
Ah, the smell of intelligence in the morning...
Current Mood: rejuvenated
Current Music: Madonna (heh, heh)
