A day at the races
Tire Iron is having trouble, cut off by Whiskey the the Hole
Well, as the final debate rolled by, I really didn't see enough of it to make an intelligent commentary. (Heh...Halo...) That given, I'll start me some brainstorming for my newish comic project.

Please note, if you're reading this, that I'm a huge fan of Shakespeare, and when I watched the Kenneth Branagh(SP?) version of Hamlet, I was literally moved to tears. We were studying the play in AP Eng 4, which is why I watched it, and I absolutely love that play now. I therefore like to go through and find random lines that relate to my story, and I'm probably going to use them as page titles. Here I will store lines that I like and will want to use at some point.

Act V, Scene I
Hamlet: Alas, poor Yorick. I knew him, Horatio

Hamlet: Dost thou think that Alexander looked o' this fashion i' the earth?

Hamlet: No, faith, not a jot, but to follow him thtither with modesty enough and likelihood to lead it, as thus: Alexander died, Alexander was buired, alexander returneth to dust, the dust is earth, of earth we make loam, and why of that loam, whereto he was converted, might not stop a beer-barrel?
Imperious Caesar, dead and turn'd to clay,
Might stop a hole to keep the wind away:
O, that earth, which kept the world in awe,
Should patch a wall to expel the winter's flaw!

Act V, Scene II

Claudius: And let the ketle to the trumpet speak,
The trumpet to the canoneer without,
The cannons, to the heavens, the heaven to earth


Issue Heading: "Tis too much proved--that with devotion's visage and pious action we do sugar o'er the devil himself."
~Hamlet, Act III, Scene I


Okay, forget all that. I'm thinking more visual now.

P2L1C "What a piece of work is a man!"
P2L2C "How noble in reason, how infinite in faculty,"
P3L1C "In form and moving how express and admirable,"
P3L2C "In action how like an angel,"
P4L1C "In apprehension how like a god!"
P7L2
Vector: What happened?
P8L1
Relay: An explosion of some sort, originating in the central fore of the ship and spreading aft with subsquent blasts. Large parts of the internal structure destroyed, stress in the immediate area is severe and declining. Life support, sensors, engines and artificial gravity all offline. Signs of sabotage. Only a few dozen life signs remaining.
P8L2
Gremlin: The primary power core, most likely. The rest of the power subsystems overloaded, spreading through the ship, and our hibernation cylinders were ruptured in the process. Sabotage suggests possible mutiny. The rest of the ship is highly unstable and could lose critical integrity at any moment.
P9L1
Vector: Our primary objective is to survive. Suit up and prepare to move out pending further instructions.
P9L2
Shade: Copy, Affirmative.

Aliases:
Relay: Rachel Wahl
Gremlin: Grant Kobold
Vector: Victor/Valin Kaiser
Shade: Sarah Geist


As Two-Bit Sour struggles to regain the lead...
In my opinion, The Vice Presidential Debate was as much a toss-up as the first Presidential Debate was. Edwards demonstrates a better command of words and better debating strategy, but he often went too far and used misleading evidence, and Cheney was well-prepared enough to point this out. Cheney did manage a couple of zings, as did Edwards. When Cheney's been zinged, he looked abashed and didn't say much, and when Edwards got zinged, he followed up with a statement that had little or nothing to do with what Cheney zinged him about. All-around, a toss-up. That's all for now.

Daddy's Mustache breaks free from the pack...
And this is my second post. Hmm, it seems to me that John Kerry is a long-faced character who represents nothing more than the concept (alluring as it is to the left) of "Notbush", and if he is to win this election he must develop some positions, and fast. As of yet he has given little to no specifics to back up all the stuff from the left about how Iraq is a horrible place now and was better off under Sadaam. In my opinion, Bush will take the election in a landslide if the voters are really paying attention to the issues. I'm not even talking about my views or which one is right: it's merely the fact that everyone knows what Bush thinks and who he is, and we really can't say that of John Kerry. As an intelligent liberal I had the pleasure of debating on Metroid2002.com put it, "This is a for-Bush or Against-Bush election. It wouldn't matter if Bush was running against a ham sandwich." He was very right, and Kerry had better start getting around to becoming something more than a ham sandwich, or the left will be crying in November. Not that I'd have a problem with that...supporting the right Republican Right in Texas! smilies/icon_xd.gif

Clear Skies!


And they're off!
Well, my first entry. I didn't know that Gaia had something like this. Ah well, best put it to good use.

My definition of "good use" may alarm and disturb some of you.

But, oh well, eat some crackers and be happy.
