in the memory you'll find me...

There is nothing better than listening to music MAKES you sing you along as LOUD AS POSSIBLY CAN.
I'm screaming, hurting my throat, hurting my head. All caughty up in that bass and that voice, and those drums and GRRRRR. ah. I want to just scream and cry smile and laugh and hit stuff. and hug people and ...

Wow just exuberant as all hell.
And no, it's not the coffee, gaddamit, it's me. I'm just feeling this music so hard. I want *everyone* to hear it and know it. And identify and nod along, confirm it, verify, REPRESENT.
I can't get it loud enough.
I'm about to movie it upstairs and put on the *good* headphones. The studio sort that cover the whole ear and flip up.
Straight up stole these off of sean. I don't think he knows these are gone though. ANd gaddamn, I hope he never asks for them back. He's got like 4 other pairs, the lil turntable whore that he is.
Someone has been leaving me disturbed but happy and not wanting to disturb the disturbedness. If I start poking it with stick, the jelly fish is just gonna sting me, yo.
Don't want that. Can't have it.
Not gonna do it.
wouldn't be prudent.
So yeah.
You know who you are. I know you're reading this. You rock steady, sweets.
I'm but.. yah.. not it's all.. hmm. beh.
*pace pace pace*

wait shit, yo... John Ashcroft, Attorney General...
*off with the phones* ... talking about the death penalty.
I ... hmm... McVeigh...
You know, I realize this is horribly unpopular... but... had there been no deaths... Had that building been empty... I'd be applauding him. I would be the first one to stand up and clap and hoot and holler. I'd be the banner holder in the parades for him.
But he killed people.
He took so much life.
So selfishly.
So needlessly.
He took what could have been a beautiful and well overdue message/statement/wake up call and notice of dissent and turned in into pure and simple terrorism. He could have been noble, instead he let himself be just another terrorist. Just another act of destruction, devoid of purpose or meaning. 168 people died because of one man's arrogance. He's proud of the death. And he's proud of his part in it. And for that he is a monster.
I still have issues with the death penalty. And I don't think this is the right thing here. But I will never stop believing that McVeigh had a chance for greatness and fucked it up by being such a dumb and common human.
John Ashcroft is just letting everyone know that he's postponing McVeigh's execution a month so the defense can review some shit. Nothing points to him being innocent... Ashcroft doesn't want ANY doubt...
I'm ... astounded. I didn't think they'd postpone it.
I was sure it would be swift and firey and full of brimstone.
But the prosecution fucked up... didn't deliver documents. The FBI fucks up again.
Holleee poop balls. I just... GAH DAMN.

gotta go bury my head for ahwile, yo.

McVeigh and Other Things
I havent' felt that way about music in far too long. I need to spend some "quality time" with the music that moves me, I think. Reconnect with it. Too much anymore it's just so there's pleasant noise in the background to combat the ringing in my ears.

I agree with you on McVeigh... the statement he was making, or at least that he appeared to be making, in destroying the BUILDING was understandable. But all those lives... even if it had only been one life... I just can't wrap my brain around it. Some people are just dnagerously stupid human refuse. I try to look at it like this: If God made people, He can be considered a manufacturer. It is well known in industry that when you receive defective goods, you return them to the manufacturer. Some people are defective. Send 'em back ta God. I can't even begin to imagine why they've post-poned the execution. What in the name of Bob are they thinking will come of it? Continued opportunity for lurid press coverage? Huh. Now that I've wrote that, I don't doubt it.

Just my two cents on your two cents :)

Re: McVeigh and Other Things
First of all, Love the icon, love the site. SO happy that other people know that it's there. Total big ass ROCK to you.

The way I see it, this is again the FBI's fault.
Odd that the FBI in a lot of ways was the spark for it all in the first place and now it's the delaying factor with its own stupidity.
Because they didn't come forward to the defense with the *full* disclosure that is required, they've possibly jeopardized the whole thing. Lawyers thrive on technicalities... and this is a big important one.
If they don't postpone it and there is any question in anyone's mind then no justice is served by this execution.
Ashcroft has said that the papers don't present any new evidence really, but because the defense never saw them, they could easily say that because they didn't get the full disclosure, that's a valid reason for a retrial. It's happened before, and the sort of grand standing that is pretty much almost *required* by the human nature of these things could make it very very messy if it's not postponed and given alllll possible review.
It's screwed.
But well, what about the "justice" system in this country *isn't* screwed?

Just my 1.34 cents on your two on my two.

We keep this up, we can buy a couple mini reese's cups from 7 eleven.

Re: McVeigh and Other Things
yep -- the problem with not postponing is that it would give the F.B.I. a precendent -- the paranoid in me, at first, thought for a moment that this was what they were trying to accomplish. I'm forced to drop that worry, though, when I realize that Ashcroft (Republican, Democrat or Lion Tamer) has no choice but to postpone in order to maintain the rights of the individual and protect future defendents. I'm sure the F.B.I. knew that Ashcroft would have no choice, therefore there was no conspiracy -- me calm yet again.

What's with all these embarassing bureacratic/military fuax pas' lately anyway. I smell a conspiracy there for more funding. I've gotta see one somewhere in all this...
