in my independent study w/Dr. Hara this semester I’ve been reading article after article from the journal Mobilization. uniformly they’ve all been interesting and well written. I may have to subscribe.


Pete points out our realization that
we decorate like college guys. it occurs to me that in gendered opinions, this is entirely my fault. any time i hear someone talk about a space needing a “woman’s touch” i involuntarily snicker…remind youself that i’m the one shopping for the tiki bar, and you’ll see what i mean.

speaking of, does anyone know where to find a nice, relatively simple and inexpensive indoor tiki bar? i keep getting hits for big outdoor monstrosities.

the Wit
(73% dark, 34% spontaneous, 11% vulgar)
your humor style:

You like things edgy, subtle, and smart. I guess that means you’re
probably an intellectual, but don’t take that to mean you’re pretentious.
You realize ‘dumb’ can be witty–after all isn’t that the
Simpsons’ philosophy?–but rudeness for its own sake, ‘gross-out’ humor
and most other things found in a fraternity leave you totally flat.

I guess you just have a more cerebral approach than most. You have the perfect mindset for a joke writer or staff writer. Your sense of humor takes the most effort to appreciate, but it’s also the best, in my opinion.

Also, you probably loved the Office. If you don’t know what I’m
talking about, check it out here:

excellent op-ed in the times today, By Nicholas, D. Kristof:

All Ears for Tom Cruise, All Eyes on Brad Pitt

Some of us in the news media have been hounding President Bush for his shameful passivity in the face of genocide in Darfur.

More than two years have passed since the beginning of what Mr. Bush acknowledges is the first genocide of the 21st century, yet Mr. Bush barely manages to get the word “Darfur” out of his mouth. Still, it seems hypocritical of me to rage about Mr. Bush’s negligence, when my own beloved institution – the American media – has been at least as passive as Mr. Bush…

Heavy Metal Parking Lot

in 1986 some guy and his friend stumbled around the partking lot of the capitols center outside of DC filming the antics of soon-to-be Judas Priest concert goers. let’s hope 80’s hair never makes a come back, huh?

especially funny for anyone who’s ever spent time in eastern maryland. the let’s-go-dawn-da-seashore-with-a-bucket-a-crabs-an’-a-case-a-bud accent shines though at multiple points
