In yet another instance of me feeling vindicated for not liking something, the producer of the show 24 is now going to join Fox News Channel in creating a conservative political satire show to rival The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. I never got a positive vibe about 24, but could never place why. I know now that it was my conservodar.

Also: amazing.

Been a Long Time Since I Rocked and Rolled

So much has happened in the long while since I've posted. Brief recap of things:

Blue Congress
The Democrats take both houses of Congress and a number of gubernatorial races, much to the pleasure of all. The very close Senate races in Montana and Virginia seal the deal. Many have attempted to frame this as a victory of conservatism, as so many of the victorious Democrats are moderate or right of center, but to that I say bull shit. We are moving genuinely leftward in this country, and most of the new faces in the Senate show this. Plus, look at our in-coming House Speaker, a San Fransicgay liberal no less. Anyway, we also saw the departure of Rummy. Gooooooood riddance.

The Bards Are Back
Tomorrow evening, I will be seeing Blind Guardian in Seattle. It will be the most amazing thing ever since the last time I saw Blind Guardian (four years ago).

Magical Transportable Computermajig
With my next pay check, I will be purchasing a laptop from work. It will be a PC, which is on the one hand lame, but on the other hand, I will be primarily using it for gaming and taking notes at school, until I get a chance to put Linux on it, which is very un-lame.

Let's Get the Hell Out of Here
I talked to my advisor at school recently about my graduation prospects. They are good. Bearing unforeseen events, I will be graduated from WWU in June, after which I will take a trip to Europe (possibly taking in the Welsh National Eisteddfod in Mold. And on a related note, there might be a brief trip to Italy in the spring as well. Exciting!

Indescribably Awesome

Ok that's it. Coming soon: Wizard Belt Project Presents the Jake E. Lee Award for Mediocrity!
