That's an awfully big price to pay for one man's lapse of judgement. I'm sure even Joseph Campbell has forgiven Lucas..in spirit anyways.

you have fifty days.




observation:


The Japanese have a sense of ingrained quiet resignation and are a homogenous, community oriented society.

The Disaster at Fukishima highlights these cultural aspects of their nation, as they are meticulously polite and are much more likely to follow the lead of Authority.

New Jersey and New York City are almost polemic opposites, They are most assuredly a Human Stew, with many flavors existing side by side.

they say "Fuck You" more in a day than most people do in a year.

as a student of history and social dynamics, as well as having somewhat real-time info of the goings on, i think i can postulate with almost total certainty that shit's gonna get really fucking ugly, really quick.

the damn subways wont be up and running for MONTHS.....seriously.....food supplies are running low, and it's the logistics, not the supply that will make getting gasoline almost impossible...the people who really got slammed cant even connect with the outside world yet, the reports of damages are now increasing exponentially, a straight upward curve....Con-Ed has quietly admitted they're fucked, and natural gas leaks are now just becoming a problem...this will get worse.....add to this questionable water supplies and you have a recipe for Lord of the Flies on a Grand Scale.

if you can, i would escape from New York, Now.





Just My Humble Opinion.

So, you think we will end up with another shift from another diaspora, ala New Orleans/Katrina?

As you know, Hurricane Sandy has severely affected the mid-Atlantic and northeast regions of the United States.

You may have recently made a purchase from one or more sellers located in an affected area. To no fault of these sellers, shipments may be delayed while basic services are being restored. The sellers' ability to communicate with you may also be hindered. Please be patient and consider these special circumstances when leaving feedback for these purchases.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and, as always, thank you for buying on eBay.

Sincerely,
eBay Customer Support

I don't need to hear this fuckin shit. I'm outta here.

I love the Sopranos more than the next guy. I fast forwarded to see if it got any better at the end. Same shit. Different fuckin day.

I'm in love with the idea of name tags that say, " Hello, my name is FUCK YOU". Print, laminate, attach a pin.

A friend of mine was moving to New Orleans when Katrina arrived.

She decided to move to New York instead.

I met someone today that has never seen Star Wars, Star Trek or Animal House.
Yet she owns copies of these films.
And there is a huge poster of Belushi wearing his COLLEGE shirt in her den, a favorite of hers.

Is this a portent of something?

Surprizingly, she is delightful.
But what the fuck?
