"Save yourself, serve yourself."

"Brainwash is the new Black Plague" writes Mana a young artist currently living in Beruit. If you tell people what they want to hear, they'll follow you to the end of the Earth...um...well, perhaps we shouldn't mention the end of the Earth. Sure, Indonesia may just be swallowed whole by the Sea (angry lil' bitch) and yeah Korea wants to blow everyone to hell in a handbasket, not to mention Iran and Iraq and now India is blocking access to blogging tools with no explanation. The ice caps are melting and Wal Mart will soon be the largest employer in the United states. What a beautiful day!

President Bush at a dinner with Tony Blair said "What they need to do is get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this shit, and it's over" and only then did he swallow his food.

Can this world be fixed? With all the talk on the Sunday news shows it's freakin' WWIII! But, sure it can be fixed, once the leaders and zealots remove their heads from their asses long enough as not smell shit anymore, things could get better, but history continues to repeat itself, because that's what we humans do repeat, follow, repeat, lather, rinse, re-fucking-peat, break the cycle bitches, we're playing for keeps. What a fucking mess.

Well, while the world wobbles and the players on the planet play Wizard Chess, I've got things to do as does Mana, in the midst of war says
"No work and no leaving the house means I am forced to clean up my room today, doesn't it. The warzone's not where we might think."
Mana got it right, the warzone is not where we might think, it seems to be everywhere, all the goddamned time anymore and it's exhausting and it's probably the reason I got my period today. Damnit! Might as well clean my room too, after the chocolate binge that is.

"Save yourself, serve yourself. World serves its
own needs, listen to your heart bleed. Tell me with the rapture and the
reverent in the right - right. You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright
light, feeling pretty psyched."

Have a fabulous day despite it all.
