Cowboys & Immigrants


"The Frontier and Ellis Island analyze problems in different ways and arrive at different decisions. The Frontier assumes the drunken soldier is a rapist or murderer and shoots him between the eyes. Ellis Island may see him as a confused fool and hope to talk him into a cup of coffee and a 12-step program. Roughly the same choices present themselves to a president: the planet is the Frontier; the planet is Ellis Island. Genius is the ability to hold two contradictory truths in the mind at the same time without going crazy."

While genius might be asking too much from our current politicians, it is not to much to ask that that they be able to hold opposing views in mind, put extreme partisanship aside and make rational decisions and the occasional compromise to reconcile these competing but not mutually exclusive demands of a free people. Obama has striven for reconciliation on many levels, but the other party has to come to the dance.

Frightening- http://worldofwonder.net/archives/2008/09/09/holey_apocalypse/

Fact- http://topics.nytimes.com/top/news/science/topics/large_hadron_collider/index.html

FICTION? http://www.newscientist.com/blogs/shortsharpscience/2009/10/is-a-time-travelling-higgs-sab.html

According to today's New York Times: "A pair of otherwise distinguished physicists have suggested that the hypothesized Higgs boson, which physicists hope to produce with the collider, might be so abhorrent to nature that its creation would ripple backward through time and stop the collider before it could make one, like a time traveler who goes back in time to kill his grandfather." We certainly live in amazing times, people.

While not quite as darkly sarcastic and bitchy as the girl version which is The Craft, this movie is actually modestly entertaining and if there was no other reason to watch it, I would just offer that it has one of the hottest boy candy casts ever filmed- complete with high school-esque swimming pool and locker room scene. Go to the Fall Fest and feast the eyes in preparation for THG-


Hi All-
For any of you who read and find any fascination from my blog, I would encourage you to leave a comment so that in this age of existence-altering realities we could connect and enrich each other through some meaningful dialogue. I am all for silence to center the soul, but let's consider ourselves centered and start speaking up to move our world through our answers, and more importantly, our questions!

Inspiration for this task:

Too much Kabbalah...? Our girl has grown so harsh and jagged-edged! Perhaps she is feeling the loss of youth and diva-lution in her ever-more simplistic and poppy new dance tunes instead of slowly evolving into the black & white photo, middle-aged, mature and wry Dietrich-like woman I was waiting for... after years of preaching and demonstrating tolerance and uninhibited self-expression, why all the piety and petty preachiness? Maybe she's now just Mom-a-Donna? Hmmm

Perhaps she just grew out of love, joy and fun before she found them in full after the two decades long journey away from her inner issues... hopefully, she will avoid imprisoning her kiddos in their own!

The President's greatest challenge now, while continuing with his exemplary skills of tact, diplomacy and negociation on the world stage, is to apply the intellect behind these methods to a blunt, forceful and decisive attack against the unrelenting partisanship, ignorance and obstructionist guile of the Republicans to expose their own form of domestic "treason" and push his policy initiatives through Congress on behalf of the American people to whom he has promised change and reform AT HOME! thus overcoming his admirable yet ineffective strategy of compromise away from his promises and first principles. I wish someone would tell him simply that the tough process of defeating evil should not be seen as an affront to his morality, but as the necessary and logical manifestation of it for the long-term higher good of our country.

Wow- Margaret Hamilton, Witchie Poo, Betty White, Florence Henderson, the Osmonds and KISS!? Again I say, the culture is failed when we can no longer produce something like this and laugh...

Ignore the upcoming Natalie Portman remake (what is the point of remakes anyway? why can't the original first versions be left as art and filmmakers be forced to engage their creativity to create something new as if the time, place and ambience of these films could even be imagined to be capable of duplication? Very boring Hollywood!) and bask in the insanely delicious eye candy of this photography while being really terrified Gallo-style for Halloween! Nothin beats this Euro-creeep stuff! The Goblin music is the perfect background for enhanced terror...
