Enduring philosophies and favorite quotes

If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people together to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.

Playlist pieces

when all you gotta keep is strong,
move along move along like I know you do
and even when your hope is gone,
move along move along just to make it through
go on… when everything is wrong, we move along…..

...

To everything, turn, turn, turn..
there is a season, turn, turn, turn..

...

Just a simple, nice idea and gallery of photos from which the main subject has been replaced with a sketched-representation..

Invisible Pornography
This is reasonably safe to view in the presence of small children. It’s somewhat in keeping with the theme of the “Invisibilia” link above. :)

Who likes lists!? Ta-da Lists!

slated in mainstream at 2:17 am

Calling all Virgos, and other individuals with a propensity to make lists…. the makers of Basecamp have come up with Ta-da Lists

Bring your compulsion online. Make your lists public or private. Make one or dozens. This is list-making with quickness, cleanness, and efficiency. Simple and sweet. I went ahead and made three accounts within the five minutes of finding it… one for myself, one joint account, and one account for my family. Has RSS feeds too. Happy! :)

World view of America, written in Sidewalk chalk

slated in mainstream at 6:30 pm

zem’s photos from the November 20th rally in Sydney, in support of the people of Fallujah. by my understanding, the turnout was poor, but the message on that sidewalk chalk is by no means an uncommon sentiment around the world today.

Pattern of Florida Election Results

slated in mainstream at 11:51 pm

Not new. But nonetheless, unbelievable.

Surprising Pattern of Florida’s Election Results

Ethel says this well:

FUN MATH
In an interesting summary of voting by county in Florida, we find amusingly named Liberty County, wherein there were 4,075 registered voters, of which 8% were registered Republicans and 88% registered Democrats. The final vote tally was 3,021 votes, 1,927 for the Republicans and 1,070 for the Democrats. A similar pattern is seen in many other counties.

A beautiful post. I would have named this one something like ‘Values vs. Ideals’, but I trust the author knows better. Do read this one.

Blue states to Reds

slated in mainstream at 2:01 am

Read this article at theregister.co.uk by the New Democrat Outreach Program, published Sunday 7th November 2004. Blue states to Reds. [referred by a gentleman in ‘the forums’]

We Blues will come out of the Bush era no worse for wear, although you Reds will come out very much diminished, deeper in debt, and less able to improve your circumstances by your own powers.

It really is rather sneering and harsh, but I can live with that.

Election-related, and Responses part II

slated in mainstream at 4:08 am

A friend directed me to this map you see here of the 2004 US Presidential Election Results and a Map of Pre-Civil War Free vs. Slave States. 2004 US election and pre-civil war states

He also directed me to this very informative and I’m sure completely comprehensive and scientific chart of the average IQ by state, and the candidate they voted for. I asked a friend how Hawaii could have beaten us geniuses in Maryland, and he reminded me that Stitch is there to break the curve. *edit: the makers of said chart pointed to a possibly more reputable chart. if someone finds more factual evidence toward this end, i’d be interested to hear/see it.

and another friend brought this one to my attention: Greg Pallast’s Kerry Won I don’t know if that’s supposed to be exhilarating or extra depressing. Not that it should necessarily be given a lot of credence, but it is out there. And that site directs on to Democracy Spoiled, a grim account of ballot spoilage. Greg Pallast concludes:

Several friends have asked me if I will again leave the country. In light of the failure — a second time — to count all the votes, that won’t be necessary. My country has left me.


and Part II: smattering of IM and spoken responses I had from friends regarding the election results:


(19:58:29) cxxx: but yeah, our country is split pretty much down the middle on issues.
(19:58:45) cxxx: good luck to bush for keeping all of us happy for the next 4 years.


(3:19:29 PM) Mxxx: its a dark day in america
(3:21:12 PM) Mxxx: notice how bush gets elected and the clouds roll in


“Reagan was a really bad president. he’d sleep through his cabinet meetings. but at least he’d have cabinet meetings. this president (Bush) just held his first cabinet meeting in three months!”



I will tell you that I believe my grumpiness about this whole thing is slowly beginning to wear off. blogging is form of therapy, after all. ‘doesn’t mean I won’t be having more politically-charged material here for a while yet. maybe even scattered through the next four years. hey, worse things could happen.

Jeff Nelson Political Signs

Stately Victorians against Iditotic Incumbents

A friend brought this site to my attention. I think it’s excellent

I do wish my neighborhood looked more like this. Instead, it’s actually pretty full of Bush signs… although there are a few heartwarming Kerry signs.

I wonder when my disappointment and disdain and frustration and disgust for this whole situation is going to wear off. Or at least turn productive. It’ll have to turn productive.
