Jon Stewart has a public service announcement for you, friends list.

'Nuff said.

Going first thing in the morning with my parents to cast our ballots. I've got this weird mix of excitement and anxiety in the pit of my stomach. Jesus, guys, this election season has been crazy. I myself am one of those people guilty of impulsively checking the CNN/NYTimes/LATimes/ sites every hour or so for updates these past few weeks. If Obama wins, I will have some faith in my country for the first time in my adult life. If Prop 8 wins, I will lose all faith in my state. Then again, one of my favorite characters right now is a flying politician with dreams of dictatorship and a libido the size of a jet-liner. Oh, and apparently with the habit to suddenly and inexplicably bible-thump. So what do I know?

Oh, and speaking of which, on Jeph Loeb being fired from Heroes? GOOD RIDDANCE. I'm sorry, but I've got to side with the league of corporate evil on this one; it's not like the network canned him out of nowhere – while he might have been with the show from the start, he and his cohorts had an entire season and a half to make the show not suck and instead they drove it further into the ground. I mean, I saw this man talking about season 2 as if it was full of amazingly great ideas in person. Kinda kills sympathy for a guy. Given a) the ratings drop, b) the plot quality (or lack thereof), c) the out-of-character developments, and d) the fact that I'm apparently not the only one with issues in the big news world (HINT HINT ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY COVER STORY), the decision is pretty goddamn justified. I have no pity and my only concern is that NBC will stupidly bring on people who know even less what they're doing. But hey, at least they'll have an excuse for being completely oblivious about their own show.

Annnnd that's my quota for political/trivial ranting for now. BACK TO MY SPEECH PROJECT. Yes, another one. D: After this, I should hopefully be able to uh FINISH READING APPS.

I figured the MERCILESSLY TORRENTIAL RAIN we've been getting nearly nonstop for these past few days had cleaned off my car enough to finally slap on my bumper sticker, so...

My vote in November goes to... )

Ta-daaa! Yaaay!

On the front of actual politics, I'm glad that I'll be taking Contemporary Political Thought this quarter at SMC because I'll have a chance to brush up on not being ttly ignorant this election year. Need to get back into educated 12th grade Gov't mode, wooo... (Here's hoping the professor isn't completely biased to the right or left... like they always are. D:)

And in other news, I am $4.69 dollars in debt to Wells Fargo. Which, while relieving, is just... kind of pathetic. I have $75 to deposit thanks to whoring myself out to the UCLA study, but... yeah. I NEED TO GET A JOB but I also need to make sure I can handle school on its own before I load myself down with too many responsibilities. Because, you know, unlike normal people, I suck. D:

Started posting as Scar again at [ profile] damned. Yay! Now I need to bring Cid into the fray and uh... respond again with Scar. Right.
