For a wonderfully written diatribe about why you shouldn’t be complaining about paying your taxes, head on over to Greta Christina’s blog.
Today is also the day in which one of my favorite TV shows of all time Rescue Me returns for its 5th season.
Tommy Gavin: one of the darkest and most complex faces on TV... and what a face!
Y’all really should check this marvelous show out. (The first four seasons are on hulu.com so no excuses!) An interesting aside to this news is the recent find that one of the main actors on the show (Hey Franco!) happens to be one of the 911 conspiracy theorists who believe that the whole thing was an inside job.
I don’t tend to agree…. But I will still watch the show. Heck, he isn’t the first actor to have a view I disagree with. In fact… he isn’t the first person who’s political views I disagree with. And compared to say people like Jenny McCarthy who is actively trying to hurt people… well, I can live with the fact that he believes in something I find silly. Many people do.
Speaking of conspiracy theories… or at the very least possible censorship, have y’all been following the goings on over at Amazon? It seems that they are suffering form some odd ‘glitches” that have a few groups up in arms. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.
In other news, I worked on a short story last night… It is the one that I got the idea for in mid January, right before my world turned all topsy turvey. I am looking forward to finishing it soon… despite the fact that it has nothing really to do with what happened in January, I think I will sleep easier once it is done.
And lastly... here is a slightly NSFW (depending on where you work) video that made me laugh.
Happy “Hump” Day / Pay Day / Wednesday!
