So, what's up??

Our therapist and we got to talking about infiltration/revolution last night and brought up Abbie Hoffman, who if I'm not mistaken once spoke about how ineffective confrontational revolution is and how we must therefore get inside the system, play by the rules, and learn to actually beat the man at his own game. My lady and I discussed how I have the aesthetics of a mainstream bloke and can therefore slip past enemy lines undetected. Fight the system from within. That's the only way that works? Who knows. You can bet, though, that it's a lot less stressful than beating on the door outside trying to get in. Slip past their walls of exclusion and elitism and collapse their whole goddamn structure from within.

Perfect. Abbie is my new hero. I always liked the guy anyway.

Also, I'm really into The Mars Volta right now. Holy smokes, they're good. In other, not necessarily related news, I ran myself too hard last night and woke up with a killer headache again. Yick.

sometimes we need a little irreverence

Hey, before you start telling me what a jerk I am, I liked Steve Erwin as much as the next guy. He was one of the few left in this world who seemed to believe in what he did. Seemed to. Anywho. Laughter is the best medicine, right?
