Self-Portrait 3

(no subject)

You know, I'm in a really good mood today. I'm in a remarkably good mood considering the morning I've had. First, I woke up at 6 am this morning to the feeling of something cutting into the back of my neck because I'd somehow managed to get my fingers hooked into the chain of my dog tags. Nice. So I took them off and went back to sleep. Twenty minutes later, I get woken up by the tornado sirens going off, so I get dressed and go outside to take a look around. Nothing obvious, so I turn on the telly to catch the weather, and what's the first thing I hear on the news? Some fuckstick jumped up on stage last night and shot Dimebag. And all this before 7 am.

One of the few LJ memes I've seen that isn't agressively insipid, like most of them are. Straight ganked from brigidsblest.

-- Heh. The 'why the hell do we have to ghetto-mod our vehicles to have decent armor?' question was planted by an embedded reporter. I can't decide what's cooler about this; the fact that the administration's been caught yet again in its tactic of ducking the hard issues either by only allowing reporters to ask pre-approved slow-pitch questions or denying them access altogether, or the fact that Donald Rumsfeld essentially got punk'd.

-- Speaking of The Don, I absolutely love this picture--


He totally looks like some dude in a club somewhere, gettin' all up in somebody's grill, tryin' to start some shit.

-- Here's the trailer for XXX 2. I'm sorry if this puts me amongst the legions of the easily-entertained mouthbreathers, but Samuel L. Jackson, Ice Cube and Xzibit smackin' fools, shootin' motherfuckers and blowin' shit up? I'm so there.

-- Jacob get your gun. According to his website, George RR Martin probably won't be done with "A Feast for Crows" 'til the end of the year at the earliest, which means we'll be damn lucky if we see the thing before this time next year. I ain't gettin' my hopes up.
