Glutton For Punishment

I'm adding to the list of graphical things I try to accomplish. Sure, why not, more crap for me to learn that I'll hardly ever use. Still, that's just the sort of whackjob I am...so now I'm learning how to do XP login screens and XP visual styles.

*sigh* I'm such a loser sometimes. ;)

This made sense...another of those quizzes that I couldn't decide on answers, so took it twice. And I can't say I'm surprised at 'what Illuminated Group' I am...

Whoops

After lunch, i was doing some reading, and started feeling tired, so figured a nap was in order, maybe an hour or so.

My body, though, the sneaky bastard, had other plans. Specifically, it planned to stay in bed.

4:15 came as quite a surprise to my wakened eyes. Thank goddess for Coca-Cola, as I am once again awake.

Gonna go hit the 7:00 showing of The Trials Of Henry Kissenger down at the Hollywood Theatre. Anyone care to join? Meet us there...this looks extremely good.

Assuming all goes well, I should be seeing dravengodvamp and velvetacidgrrrl tomorrow, which rocks.

Movie Review

THe Trials Of Henry Kissinger: Impressive and well put together. This is a documentary, so I won't most of what I could say about a film doesn't apply (acting, sets, writing, etc.). I will say that this is well worth seeing, though: it definitely puts a new perspective on the man that won the Nobel Peace Prize for ending the war in Vietnam. Amazing what he was really doing behind the scenes. Do I honestly think he was guilty of 'war crimes'? No, not really...war is Hell, and you have tough choices to make sometimes. Do I think he made the right ones? HArd to say, since I wasn't there, but it doesn't always sound like he did. Still, for whatever 'evils' he may have committed, he is still one of the people I respect hghly, but not for his diplomatic abilty; I admire him for his drive and ability, for his ambition for power and his work to get it...and use of it.

He himself said it best: "Some people think that you can hold the STate to the same moral code that you can hold an individual to, and that just isn't possible. Sometimes, you are forced to choose, not the right or wrong course of action, but between evils." I think some of the present-day war protesters need to learn this.

Rock Out

Di's friend got hold of her, and convinced her to go out for a little bit tonight, and I knwo they have been trying to hook up, so I encouraged it. So, it's just me, The Banshee, and no one in the apartment to complain about the music being loud.

Club Chaos is open and rockin'.
