Most annoying non-active website on the internet...

This one, mine, right here; Geocities got nothin' on this piss-poor web-design-and-continua-commenting-on-the-lack-of-posts-with-the-ne'r-fulfilled-promise-to-post-more-often...blog.

If Internets users continue to stumble upon this site for real information, I'll forget the "Assumed Truth" thing and change it to "Dead End" or "You fucked up your search," or a related title with 8-10 seconds more of thought. Oops, Google Pooped...On You.

For a second there, I forgot how to type words. There's colored blocks near my computer, and I cannot hide any longer that I've become less-refined in my choice of entertainment.

Inching the old crap down the page a bit

This is the unofficial 151st post, I guess, in almost two years of having a blog. For the two years before this fucking thing began, I despised anyone with a blog (Culture Bully aside).

It's occurred to me lately, Facebook-stalking people I used to know quite well, that I may be close to that point in other people's movie lives that I shed my innocent starry-eyed dreams in favor of security and practicality and Republicanism. There's a point you cross when you're 24-1/3 that the realization occurs, let's say, and SHIT, you really like the idea of lower taxes and higher national security and fewer icky hippy legal union laws. And you move into a house with a yard you can keep mowed, and you can get a dog that you call your kid, and when you write (when the mood rarely strikes) you write in third-person and mix your tenses. And the writing is about your "kid," or about how you used to have ridiculous dreams or the funny story about cooking the wrong type of onions for the onion salad!

If there is this point to reach, I want to know. I want to see it, and avoid it a little bit, but then double back and make sure that my proxy fly on the dung heap is killed before too much preciousness is nibbled (metaphors!).

i stopped posting because i thought all the problems were fixed and lying was done...

did you know that there's STILL an election going on?!? and it isn't even a real election--it's a PRIMARY!

there's something to be said for the simplicity and infallibility of absolute monarchies.

the idea of another Republican office...

The only way my vote will be torn this Fall--that is, for the presidential election--is if Hillary Clinton wins the nomination and continues to act SCARY--or continues to try to scare me. Otherwise, I think I am all done thinking about the topic.

Reading CNN.com today, though, there was an article on how Mitten Rombley is hoping to be asked to be McCain's running mate. I watched a few of the Republican debates, and despite thinking McCain came off bad every time I saw him, I thought Mitten came off worse. In fact, if I had to choose two people who seemed to disagree and argue the most, it would be those two. They were practically the only two who talked towards the end--between Rudy Giulliani reminding everyone of his mayoral triumphs.

Does that even make sense--McCain/Romney 08? If the Vice President ended up killing the President, I don't think that would fix ANYTHING, partisan or not. It could be interesting if Republican semi-outsider John McCain chose the way-the-hell-out-there Ron Paul. That would make an interesting election.

Angry Angry

Why is it that when I watch any of the Democratic debates I cannot help but thinking that if Hillary (Rodham?) Clinton wins the nomination, the debates between John McCain and her will be nothing but ANGRY?

So much hostility--the mouth says vote for me, but the eyes say "death death death."

hey! now i have one less political reason to have to move out of the country!

I think my favorite thing about Mitt Romney dropping out, and I suppose his campaign as a whole, is a Best Show character mispronouncing his name--thanks to another word blog thing pointing me to it.

While the Colbert/Conan/Stewart-bump for Huckabee has played itself out, maybe we're starting to see the influence of the PhillyBoyRoy-bump for Mick Rombley.

I'll get to the rest in a minute...

HONESTLY, who are these people who look at all the candidates--for this "presidential" thing--and say, "y'know what? fuck it, I'm a Mitt Romney type of guy/gal."

I seriously do not understand it. Maybe it's just my common sense, IDUNNO.

I've changed things up, like those drug people on the drug shows

I had a new idea, because I feel I'm kind of trapped by my inability to finish longstanding projects:

Start a new project that seems to divert some attention from the other.

So I'm trying to tumblr, another blog site that lets you set up a blog in TEN SECONDS. With that type of efficiency, you can expect mediocrity. My intent is not to quit this site, but rather to refocus. If you want to know random shit goin' on with the ole' Joe Thiele, go to http://joethiele.tumblr.com/. If you want something better than that, go to the rest of the internet, and then come back to this site. I'll post--with pictures and words and copy and paste--on something of value, maybe.

But I do realize that this divides the Joe Thiele raindrop-in-the-ocean into incomplete halves. But maybe that's a good thing, since you weren't really reading that whole raindrop anyway.

in a quiet theatre while the end credits roll is the best time to voice your displeasure over what you just saw for less than six dollars

"Oh my God...that's it? They don't even catch him? That's the ending?"

I'm with you, Mr. Movie Opinionheimer. I thought we were watching "Lethal Weapon 6," too. You did seem quite serious in your critique, as the screen shows you clearly who wrote and directed the movie.

"Didn't the Coen brothers direct that funny Dumb and Dumber movie?" I can imagine you asking your wife in the car. It's a common mistake, but no--you're getting hung up on the brothers part.

"Why couldn't they just have had the sheriff shoot him when he was hiding behind the doorway?" You'll ask a few days later, as your terribly loud breathing--which you had during the entirety of our shared time together--begins to sound more labored with the strain of the movie's ending weighing heavy on your heart (and lungs and other breathing parts).

"Was it supposed to be a complex conclusion, not necessarily about the resolution, but more about the chase--and the realizations arrived at in that time?" You'll propose, after you see it win several awards over the winter months to come.

I can actually answer that last one: No--there's actually a sequel planned. There will be more money on the line, and a more satisfactory ending meant to give your mind peace.

Why you no longer need to buy me a ukulele

This is the exact reason why I bought a ukulele: so I could play this song to impress all of my guests. I don't have guests, so technically they were as impressed as they were ever going to be, but now they're musically as impressed as ever too.

So, unless you want to buy me a different style of ukulele (I have a soprano, to match my singing voice), you can just move on to the toy piano, etc, etc.
