Freaks United at Nation was awesome. ThouShaltNot was totally cool, as always, and Iris was FUCKING AMAZING! Let's see...Shiny Toy Guns were cool, as well, and I even liked Anders Manga--mainly because their singer has a really cool voice, even though every song was exactly 120bpm and had the same beat. Ohwell, they had fly basslines. I completely ignored the existence of Terrorfakt and Chemlab, because...quite frankly, Chemlab has one good album--Burn Out at the Hydrogen Bar, and I don't think they played anything from it anyway. I am so utterly, utterly sick of "industrial" it ain't even funny. SAVE US, SKINNY PUPPY AND FLA!

Some other realizations made over the trip:

There are lots of cute chicks in DC. LOTS. Wish I could teleport....

Heat makes me horrendously sick. As does Corona. Man...I can't even drink beer anymore. Luckily I can still get away with Irish car-bombs, though. I'm even developing a taste of Guiness. How weird is that?

There was a girl at Freaks United who looked just like a Cenobite--kind of like a combination of Angelique and the Chatterer. The only thing she was missing was handfuls of chains covered in fish-hooks...but seriously? Every time she walked by I swear I smelled vanilla and heard the gonging of that distant bell beyond the puzzle-box. ([livejournal.com profile] siliconedreamer, you're feelin' me on this one, right?) And no, that doesn't mean I think she was hot. Having your flesh peeled off is NOT my idea of a good time in the sack.

Now that my health is starting to improve, I find that I like travelling a good bit. I also like stopping at rest stops and just watching people come and go.

It was really nice seeing Alexxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx and Meredith again, and running into Stephanie (I can never remember her LJ name) and [livejournal.com profile] theantidj in a foreign clime.

I really want to see the Capitol Building destroyed by giant robots. Preferably while Congree is in session.

Holy christ am I psyched for the new Pirates of the Caribbean film!

I mean...

Pirates are cool.

Cthulhu is cool.

And you gots BOTH of them in one film!

1. Have you ever been searched by the cops?

Once. I wasn't searched, but my car was...because I got caught up in a drug sting when leaving [livejournal.com profile] vocis's place one day. Seems the 5-O had a nearby street staked out to catch an interstate drug runner, and they mistook me for him because...I was talking on a cellphone as I was driving? Got me. But they were really nice about it, so I just said: "I'm not your man, but if you want to be sure, go right ahead."

2. Do you close your eyes on roller coasters?

I will never set foot on a roller coaster.

3. When's the last time you've been sledding?

Hmmm...1999, I believe.

4. Would you rather sleep with someone else, or alone?

Only if that someone else is my cat.

5. Do you believe in ghosts?

Considering I'm a complete materialist, you'd think I'd say "no"--but wrong you would be! I actually do believe in "ghosts," but not as spiritual entities. Spectral phenomena are almost certainly the result of some kind of EM anomaly or glitches in the universal simulation.

6. Do you consider yourself creative?

I write a LOT of music and prose. I must be.

7. Do you think O.J. killed his wife?

Oh, for the Other Gods' sakes, yes.

8. Jennifer Aniston or Angelina Jolie?

Neither. Jennifer Aniston is cute, but stupid, and Angelina Jolie is cute but fucking crazy.

9. Do you stay friends with your ex's?

Never. I don't need that extra drama.

10. Do you know how to play poker?

Nope. The only card game I even vaguely like is 21, because it's simple and because I can cheat like a bastard at it.

11. Have you ever been awake for 48 hours straight?

When I was in the hospital earlier this year. It was not fun.

12. What's your favorite commercial?

This one.

13. What are you allergic to?

A LOT. But, primarily...pollens, fungal spores, love, and EBM. Especially VNV nation, whose music actually makes me break out in hives.

14. If you're driving in the middle of the night, and no one is around do you run red lights?

Of course. I live in the middle of nowhere? Who's gonna ticket me?--the deer?

15. Do you have a secret that no one knows but you?

Millions of them. You'd be surprised how incredibly secretive I actually am.

16. Boston Red Sox or New York Yankees?

The Sox, yo! FUCK THE YANKS.

17. Have you ever been Ice Skating?

Once. I fell and bruised my tailbone. Never again.

18. How often do you remember your dreams?

Always. They form the basis of almost everything I write.

19. When was the last time you laughed so hard you cried?

While watching The Anchorman. "Go fuck yourself, Los Angeles."

20. Can you name 5 songs by The Beatles?

"For the Benefit of Mr. Kite," "I am the Walrus," "The Fool on the Hill," "She Came in Through the Bathroom Window," "Something."

21. What's the one thing on your mind now?

If I have a thought, T, and I am thinking about thinking about T, then I have an infinite regress of thoughts. Which means I have to be careful or I'll break the Eschaton's Source Reality simulation.

22. Do you know who Ghetto-ass barbie is?

Christina Aguilera? She looks like a Barbie, and she's a total ghetto slut.

23. Do you always wear your seat belt?

Oh yes.

24. What cell service do you use?


25. Do you like Sushi?

NO. 1) I am deathly allergic to all seafood. 2) I find the idea of eating ANY form of flesh raw to be thoroughly disgusting.

26. Have you ever narrowly avoided a fatal accident?

Once. It terrified me so badly I barely remember it now.

27. What do you wear to bed?

Medical scrubs.

28. Been caught stealing?


29. What shoe size do you have?

Uhhhh...7 in men's, 10 in women's.

30. Do you truly hate anyone?

Yes. Not that many people, however. I can honestly say that I only truly, truly hate three or four people.

31. Classic Rock or Rap?

Classic Rock and oldskool rap. As I was driving home from DC today, I was listening to Crosby Stills & Nash and then Run DMC.

32. If you could sleep with one famous person, who would it be?

Hedy Lamar.

33. Favorite Song?

Gary Numan, "Cars." Hands down.

34. Have you ever sang in front of the mirror?

Every day.

35. What food do you find disgusting?


36. Do you sing in the shower?

All the damn time.

37. Have you ever made fun of your friends behind their back?

Often, 'cause they do it to me, too! And if they don't, then there's something wrong with 'em.

38. Have you ever stood up for someone you hardly knew?

Absolutely. I'll defend anyone if their cause is just.

39. Have you ever been punched in the face?

Only accidentally, because--I shit you not--I tripped and fell into a friend's fist one time when really drunk. We both found it incredibly amusing.

What a surprise: prayer has no therapeutic effect.

Not physically, at least. Even as a hardcore atheist, though, I would still argue that prayer has a psychologically therapeutic effect for individuals simply by giving them the means to put their minds at ease concerning health problems, medical procedures, and the like--and the less stressed a patient is concerning something like that, the better they will do simply because their bodies aren't being subjected to the tension which the psychological mindset of prayer has allowed them to alleviate.

But still, that can only mean prayer is an individual thing. You have to do it yourself...or, at least, be aware that other people are praying for you (as most folks in a religious community could be reasonably said to expect).

It's pretty obvious I've been reading Joseph Campbell's Masks of God again, huh? Ahhhh, the psychological power of the sustained myth!

But, all the same? If I'm sick, don't waste your time praying for me. Send me books to read and/or Monty Python DVDs to watch. That'll do a lot more!
