BACK DOOR BOY IN A FRONT DOOR WORLD
OUTSIDE OF SOCIETY - THAT'S WHERE I WANT TO BE
OPEN LETTERS

Dear Madonna,
Go sit your tired ass down. This album sucks so bad it almost makes American Life decent by comparison and that's just six shades of wrongness. Write a memoir, maybe a screenplay, and for fuck's sake start speaking like the Detroit chick you are. Basically what I'm saying is let's have less of you.
Dear Fundamentalist Hillary Clinton Supporters Who Threaten To Vote For McCain When/If She Doesn't Get The Nom,
Fucking die in a motherfucking fire you goddamned daft cunts. My own personal hatred of Republicans borders on mystical, and you're all fast becoming a whole new subset of that blind hatred. If you believe in anything, even a remote ideal of what the Democratic party and Liberalism in general is about at its core and yet you'd still cast a vote for The Manchurian Candidate Methuselah Bush III John motherfucking McCain, you should be dipped in Gravy Train and ripped apart by wild dogs. Fucking tools, the lot of you.
Dear John Cusack,
I love you. I heart you. I adore you. You, sir, are truly the best thing ever. Before I die, I hope that we can attend a baseball game together and drink copious amounts of overpriced draft beer as deranged fan boys of the game. That would be better than Biscuit-on-Cusack sex in my opinion. Hell, that WOULD be Biscuit-on-Cusack sex! All of that having been said, I would drink your bathwater. Because it would be the essence of awesome.
Dear LiveJournal Folks Reading This Right Now & Who Are Having A Bad Day,
I'm sorry you're having a bad day. Don't do anything that would be considered a bad choice that will wreak havoc in your lives somewhere, and learn better ways of letting shit go. Sometimes it's just not worth the energy you waste fighting for it and sometimes it is, but if you're as tired and fed up as I get from time to time, there's nothing wrong with just unplugging from someone/something and stating clearly "Yeah - not doing this right now. Don't ask me for anything and don't expect anything from me until I get some stuff figured out. Lest I slay you."
Dear Ebola Ass-Flu,
You seriously need to fuck off and die. I am SOOOOOOO not even kidding. I've had kidney stones that weren't as horrifying as you are. You've made your point, now either fuck off and die, or go ahead and kill me. HATE. YOU.

Haha! Cusack? Really? Anything that recently enflamed this adoration?

I've loved him since Sixteen Candles and Say Anything... is one of my top 5 favorite films of all time. As a teenager, I fell madly in love with Lloyd Dobler and in many ways still am. He's the epitome of everything I desired when I looked for love in those days, and no one but Cusack could have played him. That alone could be the reason he's always been my favorite male actor - that or just the fact that he's a complete distillation of everything I wished most men could be.

You know? I never saw SA.... You've just convinced me to watch it ... even so ashamedly late-in-the-game.
2nd-Jun-2008 02:33 pm (UTC)
I expect a full review to be posted forthwith!
2nd-Jun-2008 04:37 pm (UTC) - bitches, man!
LOVE Lloyd Dobler - who didn't?
2nd-Jun-2008 02:05 pm (UTC)
I really just don't get the Clintonistas for McCain. The level of delusional entitlement required to get from Point A to Point B astounds.
2nd-Jun-2008 02:36 pm (UTC)
I know, right?

Have you ever visited hillaryis44.com? HYSTERICAL.
2nd-Jun-2008 02:35 pm (UTC)
...and scary.

I'm with you on the Clinton people. I would vote for her were she to somehow get the nomination, but I've had juuuust about enough of this:

Someone else: So, who do you think you'll vote for?
Me: I think we're pretty lucky to have two candidates that aren't completely offensive. That said, I lean a bit towards Obama.
SE: *eyes glaze over* OHMYGOD, YOU DRANK THE KOOL-AID HOW COULD YOU YOU SEEM LIKE A REASONABLY SMART PERSON, BUT OBAMA SUPPORTERS ARE ALL THE SAME HE'S UN-ELECTABLE HE'S NOWHERE NEAR AS ELECTABLE AS HILLARY HE DOESN'T HAVE A PLAN, HE'S JUST GOT IDEAS KOOL-AID DRINKER IF I DON'T GET TO VOTE FOR HILLARY I'M VOTING FOR MCCAIN blahblahblah and so on.

And these are the people referring to the Obama thing as a cult? Honestly, I don't get what has made them so rabid. The candidates are all politicians. They'll embrace (or be vague about) any position as long as they think it'll get them elected. That's probably why I have my Obama preference, since he seems to be a little less like that.

Still, the person who would actually represent me and what I think is important would never, ever be elected.

You = awesome.

I'm glad someone finally said that about this new album by Madonna. It's rare that I want to throw a CD away but this is one of those times.

John Cusack was in 16 Candles? Damn, it's been just long enough that I don't remember him in it. I suck...
2nd-Jun-2008 04:43 pm (UTC)
He was one of Anthony Michael Hall's friends, his character's name was Bryce and he (along with other friend Cliff) wore these crazy contraptions on their heads.
2nd-Jun-2008 07:01 pm (UTC)
Ah, okay. I didn't realize that was him. Thanks!

Cusack's way cooler though. And tangible.
2nd-Jun-2008 04:35 pm (UTC) - go sit your tired ass down
Do have the raging runs? I had that last week, my flu was a raging monster of the arse.
If you do NOT have the raging runs, please disregard this comment...

I am sorry to hear Madonna's latest attempt sucks out loud. The song she "sings" with Justin Timberlake is a plodding mess. They are going to make me question the reason I live in those four minutes, it's SO BAD.

Music's no fun any more once you have it all figured out - unless you are Al Green.
2nd-Jun-2008 04:38 pm (UTC) - Re: go sit your tired ass down
Indeed, I do. Started around 3AM, just had another bout. It's getting better, though.

Yeah - I have an issue about people using their own names in songs, it's just a really sad way to beg for attention.

2nd-Jun-2008 05:26 pm (UTC) - I want my two dollars. . .
Your post made me LOL. Excellent screed at the Clintonistas.

There is a really excellent diary posted at both mydd.com and dailykos.com by a very avid Clinton supporter who goes by Angry Mouse that is titled "Clinton Supporters vs. Clinton 'Supporters.'"

Her thesis: There are a lot of Clinton supporters out there who are died-in-the-wool Democrats, who believe that she's the best possible candidate, and who, once this is all over and the nomination process is done, will work their asses off for whoever is the Democratic nominee. And there are a much smaller, but more vocal number, of Clinton "supporters" out there who have it out for Obama much more than they support Clinton, or who are "Operation Chaos" folks, or who have any other number of reasons to support Clinton.

I have a hell of a lot of empathy for true, honest-to-goodness Clinton supporters. I could spend an hour telling you about all of the candidates I've supported wholeheartedly that have lost or failed to gain traction, at all levels of government, including in the current election cycle (I was an Edwards boy, and would shift back to him in a heartbeat if he got back in, quixotic as it may be).

So I understand the process one goes through to get behind the Dem that isn't the Dem you really wanted. In fact, I keep expecting something bad to happen to Obama, because I really don't know *how* to feel about my guy being the on that's going to get the nod. It's so foreign to me to realize that my campaign contributions aren't wasted...

Anyway, I understand where those who came to Clinton honestly are coming from, and I absolutely respect the emotional process. I'd be incredibly down right now if my guy had gotten as far as Clinton and not succeeded.

*But* - under no circumstances - would I have turned around and said, "Obama lost... guess I'm voting Republican." Especially after the last eight years. Especially after Iraq. Especially with approximately 80% of the entire Federal judiciary (generally regarded as the Supreme Court 'farm team') being appointed by Republican presidents, limiting drastically the talent pool of progressive judges. Especially when SCHIP, the GI Bill, Armored Humvees, NCLB, EDNA, gay marriage, DOMA, DADT, dependence on foreign energy and petrochemicals, and crumbling infrastructure on the line.

The stakes are far too high for a logical Democrat to think that any Republican, even a so-called 'maverick' like McCain. The stakes are just far, far too high to entertain the self-absorption and entitlement that would lead to that conclusion. And I have no problem looking anyone willing to entertain it with disdain. Not as an Obama supporter. Not as a Democrat. But as a personal of reosonable intellect who has been paying attention for the last eight years.

Oh, I never poke a badger with a stick. Better to just shake your head and walk away slowly.

It's not moderate supporters of Hillary, it's the linear view of people who would rather go "MY CANDIDATE OR NOBODY!! MATTER OF FACT, IF WE DON'T PLAY THE GAME I WANT TO PLAY, I'M BURNING THIS MOTHERFUCKING GYM DOWN! AAAAAAAAAAH!!" Which is the type of vitriol going into the notion of a vote for McCain if you're a Hillary supporter rather than a candidate in her own party that has views and ideals more closely aligned to her own than would McCain.

If it were about getting the right person in office, McCain wouldn't even be a blip on anyone's radar, George - that's what these daft cunts/Clintonistas/Clinton people that I'm specifically referring to don't get. Not any old supporter of Hillary, just the ones who are complete dumbasses.

I could even respect the conscious choice to not vote rather than vote for a candidate you think is questionable - but to vote for one that's the complete opposite of most things they profess to be sacred, and for what - spite? Bitterness? Expect to be criticized if that's the kind of childish behavior they choose. Which, it should be noted, also forfeits their right to complain about ANYTHING McCain does if he were elected with their help.

Okay, but here's where I began - that IS what I'm talking about. That's all I've been talking about in the confines of this post where Hillary's so-out-of-step they'd vote for McCain if she doesn't get the nomination minions are concerned.

I really really needed that, thank you. :)

Your fourth point just calmed my raged soul a bit, and I really needed that, or I was going to go choke a bitch. Thank you.

someone burned me a copy of the Madonna CD and I don't even want it. And I wanted to like it. But adding Justin Timberlake and Timbaland to already half-assed songs does not make them better. It just makes them sound kind of desperate, imho. And "Candy Shop" is the dumbest song.
