no one can stop us now

Home: a staged reading

Way to go Green Line having stops like every block. The Boston Playwrights' Theater is right across from the Pleasant St. B Line stop.

Anyway, the play itself.

"It's a messy world. Help us find home."

And when we've gone a million miles
Made true our dreams with sweat and bone
After we've built it up with our bare hands
Made strong a place we can call home

Hey, look.

ficathon for those ficathon requests that never got filled  I'm debating about participating, but i don't really wanna write any more ficathon pieces and don't have a deep desire for my 3 unfilled requests to be written.  Anyone potentially willing to offer up their services should definitely check it out, though.

Eternal Sunshine... icons quite different from the ones i usually see for that movie
I approve muchly.

Jonah and i watched "Shindig" tonight.  The importance of the slave dispute in the opening hadn't hit me until i saw it this time.

I mentioned to Meredith last night that i had loaned out disc 2 of my Firefly and she said she thought that was her favorite disc.  I was inclined to agree.  Looking again, i wasn't so sure, because Disc 3 is the dark one, and i tend to prefer that to humor, but no, i stand by Meredith.

politics:

rhipowered posted the following:

"He's good in every way, except he's not a woman."
-Sandra Day O'Connor on John J. Roberts

That made me smile since i recently saw an InstaPundit reader call Roberts "O'Connor with a penis."

D.S. Savage's response to a 1942 Orwell article gives me chills.
Whereas the rest of the nation is content with calling down obloquy on Hitler's head, we [pacifists] regard this as superficial. Hitler requires, not condemnation, but understanding. This does not mean that we like, or defend him. Personally I do not care for Hitler. He is, however, "realler" than Chamberlain, Churchill, Cripps, etc, in that he is the vehicle of raw historical forces, whereas they are stuffed dummies, waxwork figures, living in unreality. We do not desire a German "victory"; we would not lift a finger to help either Britain or Germany to "win"; but there would be a profound justice, I feel, however terrible, in a German victory...
From here.
