Fashion Statement

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on August 5, 2012

Rules of Conduct 1 Keep it Clean. Please avoid obscene, vulgar, lewd, racist or sexually-oriented language. PLEASE TURN OFF YOUR CAPS LOCK. 2 Don’t Threaten. Threats of harming another person will not be tolerated. 3 Be Truthful. Don’t knowingly lie about anyone or anything. 4 Be Nice. No racism, sexism or any sort of -ism that is degrading to another person. 5 Be Proactive. Use the ‘Report’ link on each comment to let us know of abusive posts. 6 Share with Us. We’d love to hear eyewitness accounts, the history behind an article. ~ (fb) ~ Jimmy Crack Corn was written in the style of James Joyce. ~ When a Republican sees someone else grooving on the thing she loves, her reaction is to say “how can I make money off this?” When a grammar nazi sees a post like this, she makes all the nouns and verbs singular. ~ hit b on advance search on this machine, and the choices are brookhaven, bob dylan, and bleeding lambs ~ The Get Religion article does not give any quotes from the radio interview that upset Miss Piggy so. Mr. Cathy said ” “I think we are inviting G-d’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,’ I pray G-d’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about.” ~ I might settle for using less twenty dollar modifiers. What if I choose to use fewer big words? ~ Here is a heteronormative video. ~ Childers you are an embarrassment to any credible political effort – Please do yourself a favor, study the ramifications of a cranio-rectal inversion before posting ever again, you blithering doofus. ~ “I drank to drown my sorrows, but the damned things learned how to swim.” ― Frida Kahlo (fb) ~ “I paint myself because I am so often alone and because I am the subject I know best.” ― Frida Kahlo (fb) ~ When you told me you were disappointed that I didn’t grant your request, I felt empathy for you. It can be tough not getting what we want. But I don’t do anything I don’t want to do, so my hope for you is that you either find an offer that appeals to me, or you realize you are capable of tolerating your frustration. (fb) ~ This is a serious, if somewhat flippant, depiction of something I think is important. When people who knew me from when I was younger find out I’m an atheist, they ask, “what happened?” as if surely some horrible or traumatic thing must have occurred for me to stop believing in god. No. What happened was that I learned. I read. I thought. I grew up. I have no ill will or dislike of those I know or met through the church, some of whom I think are spectacular and wonderful people. (fb) ~ I will never post a self-congratulatory post stating how many followers I have. I will not state that I’m creating another blog specifically for personal info/self-pics of me and that it is “members-only”/requires a password. I will never confuse people noticing posting/re-posting various shit onto the internet for fame when it is really only self-indulgence. Most importantly, I will not mistake almost total strangers “unliking”/”unfollowing” me for any kind of personal attack when it simply means they aren’t interested in what I’m posting. Repost this if you’re bored enough to. (fb) ~ Randomness is a proposed disconnect between existing conditions and results, which in my entire life I don’t feel I’ve encountered…. everything that happens is a direct result of circumstances preceding it, even if the complexity is beyond human grasp. (I’m bored) (fb) ~ I don’t know about you, but I definitely have an inner troll. Of course, while poking people with sticks and seeing their reactions can be fun, doing it in front of hundreds or thousands of people (some of whom I might actually want to relate with) doesn’t do much for my reputation. That’s why I prefer to reserve my sadistic streak for private consensual encounters. (fb) ~ “My wake-up call came when someone told me last year (paraphrasing), “many people in the queer communities of color in Atlanta don’t come to MondoHomo bc they don’t feel like it’s a safe and welcoming space.” Good Grief. Some people are never going to feel like “it is a safe and welcoming space.” How far do you want to go, to accomodate people who are going to reject you anyway? At what point do you stop throwing your own community under the bus, to try to attract this hostile community? In the next sentence you say something about white privilege. Is this constant claiming to be the victim POC privilege? ~ This is the Rush Center on DeKalb Ave. Anyone going to Rush Center KS will be disappointed. ~ CFA was moving slowly and carefully into northern cities. I suspect they had no plans to go into Boston. The mayor was doing a bit of low risk grandstanding. Also, who wants to bet the the Henson company wasn’t happy with their arrangement(i.e. not making enough money) , and was looking for a way out. ~ There is a concept called felony murder. If you commit a felony, and a person dies as a result, then you are guilty of murder. A man in georgia was executed for this last year. While making tacky comments is not a felony (good thing too, or we would all be guilty) It is arguable that Mr. Cathy’s mouth running caused a PR nightmare for the company, whose PR vice president then has a heart attack. ~ I thought agnostic was something you blew out of your nose. ~ Freedom from the desire for an answer is essential to the understanding of a problem. ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti (fb) ~ I was privy to the secret griefs of wild, unknown men. — F. Scott Fitzgerald (fb) ~ If you wear a leopard coat in a black and white picture, that’s all the audience will look at. — Shelley Winters (fb) ~ After you turn 50, every 15 minutes it’s breakfast! — Kitty Carlyle Hart (fb) ~ That is what fresh ground means. ~ Test Results Sickness Quotient: 75% Your “Sickness Quotient” of 75% indicates therapy may be useful. Detailed Diagnosis Interpersonal Insights You are utterly incapable of meaningful relationships, which is probably a good thing since you’re a horrible bore under the best of conditions. You have difficulty concentrating or keeping on task, probably because you’re an idiot with a short attention-span. Job Performance & Attitude You aspire to becoming the CEO of a large, powerful company. This is unlikely since you rarely leave your parent’s basement. You have little empathy for anyone more successful at work than you, which is pretty much everyone. Personality Insight Your personal motto is “Dance like nobody’s watching.” That’ just stupid. Get a better motto. ~ The constant assertion of belief is an indication of fear. ~Jiddu Krishnamurti (fb) ~ Well, I’m an asshole. I bet I’ll repost this 5 times in the next 8 days. Some lame suburban asshole who admits being a “Christian” was up in arms about stop being mean to Christians, to which I retorted: ” OK–this is cute, like any comment thread. It should (by now, because it’s preached from every single pulpit worth a god damn, and every Sunday) go without saying that Jesus thinks your version of Christianity. Sucks. You are very bad at being his follower. You are a hypocrite (just like the Pharisees that followed him around), you are lousy at giving away everything you own (entry fee), you perpetually blame the poor for their condition (which doesn’t happen in the Gospels, at all, even once), you want to punish sexual deviants (like the lovely assholes he invited to cast the first stone), and (just a guess!) you eat shellfish and/or meat and cheese together in the same meal. YOU ARE A LOUSY FUCKING CHRISTIAN. YOU SUCK AT YOUR RELIGION. GIVE UP. While you’re at it, leave my atheist ass out of it. It’s really the least you can do. In Jesus’ name.” (fb) ~ I’m making some changes in my life. You may not understand or agree, but I hope you will respect that I’m trying to do what *I* need. I’m stepping away from politics, arguing, and trying to save the world. I’m going to do what gives *me* happiness – laughing and playing with friends and taking care of my personal responsibilities. I still appreciate everyone I’ve connected with and the things we fought for, but I know myself and I recognize this is what I need. Happy Friday! (fb) ~ I like cows. So for years students would give me those calendars and I would accept but never use the coupons. I think I am going to try to make a collage with them so at the very least they become queer art created by a queer artist. I don’t like cows because of the reasons you think. My love is for steak, shakes and my awesome leather jacket. And don’t give me that cruelty to animals shit because I know if a cow could he would eat my ass and wear my skin because I am delicious. I have testimonials…just saying (fb) ~ “The Christians with heart are painfully silent..” You shouldn’t talk with your mouth full. (fb) ~ 1-When the SCOTUS ruled that “Lethal Injection” was constitutional, they were ruling on a three drug cocktail. Is it permissible for the states to decide that one drug is good enough? 2- Why was this change announced on the day before a scheduled execution? 3- If we are going to be a society of laws, then the authorities must obey the laws as well. 4- Is anyone else troubled by the spectacle of the Department of Corrections killing a prisoner with a deliberate overdose of a barbituate? 5- The manufactorer of phenobarbital is opposed to the use of their product for executions. Where does the GDC get their supply? Is this a legitimate source? If an ordinary person gets a substance like pentobarbital from a less than reputable source, then this ordinary person is in severe trouble. See point 3. 6- The conduct of the State of Georgia in this case is an indication that they are not capable of administering the death penalty in a fair and just manner. 7- The motto of the state is wisdom, justice, and moderation. Killing a prisoner with a deliberate drug overdose is neither wise, just, nor moderate. Especially not moderate. ~ 1 – Twenty years ago, I worked in the Healey Building. CFA had a store in the flatiron building. It was in an old bank office, and the vault was a dining room. 2 – CFA is overpriced. If someone else pays for it, I might eat there. ~ Breakfast at the Waffle House on Cheshire Bridge Road this morning. The crowd: White families, gay jocks (Pride Run and Timberfell Lodge T-shirts), young African-American men and women; three line cooks turning out about a plate a minute; the waitresses efficient and smiling; the manager and I agreeing that this is how Atlanta should always be, and that Chick-fil-A is not representative of those of us working for equality. (fb) ~ “The way to develop self-confidence is to do the thing you fear and get a record of successful experiences behind you. Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.” ~ it has been a long, long chemo day and it is time to bed down for the night. I am grateful for family, friends who are chosen family, medical technology that will help keep me alive to enjoy it all a little longer, complications enough in the process so I don’t trade humility for hubris, and for my sobriety, without which none of it would be possible. God is merciful. Blessed Be. ~ William Jennings Bryan (fb) ~ To the guy who tried to mug me in downtown savannah night before last date ~ That is not a fashion statement I would make.~ Another comparison is the treatment of Jesus and Mohammed. Christians routinely present grossout pictures of Jesus on the cross. Muslims are forbidden to present images of Mohammed. ~ The Brookhaven Ballot Committee/ Brookhaven Yes thing bothers me. It makes me wonder if I want this crowd to run a new city. Thank you for your thoughtful attention to this matter. ~ I like Chick-fil-A’s food. I think Mr. Cathy has a right to his ignorant opinion. And I think people have a right to eat elsewhere – but I’m not sure what the point is, because for every cocksucker that gets angry about his opinion, there is at least one bigot that likes him more, so from a dollars perspective, I don’t think we faggots can win this one. On the other hand, we could strike and stop sucking closeted homophobes’ dicks. That’ll teach em. (fb) ~ “Turning a chicken sandwich into Public Gay Enemy Number One makes LGBT people look superficial, vindictive and juvenile — everything that we as a community have worked hard to overcome.” Maybe that is why the press is giving this so much attention. It takes attention away from Sally Ride’s surviving partner. ~ James Dickey said that Sylvia Plath was the Judy Garland of american poets. Or maybe it was Anne Sexton. ~ can you go glitter bomb gay pride and leave the big decisions to the adults? ~ You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger. ~ Gautama Siddhartha ~ Your email address and IP address has been logged and your incoming access permanently blocked to this recipient. You are an asshole. ~ At least with CFA and WM we have a choice. The gummit chooses to go to war, and doesn’t ask what we think. If you don’t pay the tax to support the war machine, your money is seized. ~ I am happy to know Miles Davis through his music, and not his reputed personality ~ Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue. – Gautama Siddhartha ~ Pictures are from “The Special Collections and Archives,Georgia State University Library” ~ Selah
