First off, thank you to everyone for letting me rant about the stupidity of electoral politics. It wasn't pretty, I know. Even worse, as the Chicago punk band Screeching Weasel once put it, more poetically than any of us could:
"Politics are boring
Politics are fucking boring
Philosophizing propoganda spewing
Teenage armchair revolutionaries..." etc. etc.
No kidding. Talking about politics is as exciting as hearing about what sports teams are "looking really good this year." Anyway, so long to all of that. It's time to get back to more important matters like weird sex, horror movies, drugs, glam rock, bitching about academia, and the rest of it. Also, I'm off to France on the 16th for six or seven months. So there's that.
