"Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. This is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposong the country to danger. It works the same in every country."
-Hermann Goering. Hitlers Riech-Marshall at the Nuremberg trials after WWII
I went to bed last night at 2AM, in part because I wasn't quite tired enough for sleep and in part because Wargames with Matthew Broderick was on TV and I hadn't seen that movie since I was a teenager, so I stayed up and watched it. I figured I'd sleep late, being that this was a holiday and we had nothing going on this morning, but alas I was wide awake at 8AM. Got up, made coffee, told all the amminals (spelled that way on purpose) Good Morning and came into the office for coffee and news - which is my AM ritual. Once I sat down here, I realized just how dirty I feel. I have to cut my grubby fingernails, I have to shave the 2 days of stubble off of my face, and seriously scrub all 37 pounds of grime off my face and body. Oh - and I have to shave my head, because my hair is long enough to pinch between my fingers and I can't have that.
Today feels like a picture-taking day. I really want to get some pictures taken for Photoshop work. I need new brushes, and I make my best sets out of my own pictures. Plus, I need new material for that project I keep alluding to - which I think I need to give an actual name, as it is to be a series of pieces in a project. Hmmm... Maybe once I figure out a few names I'll make a poll and see what the project should be called. Hmmmm.....
