THe BIg C

can i just take a break from ranting about politics
except of course to say
HEY NEWLY ELECTED TEA PARTY FOLKS
ARE YOU GOING TO SPEND THE NEXT TWO YEARS
DOING NOTHING BUT VOTING NO, JUST TO KEEP OBAMA
FROM BEING SUCCESSFUL
OR ARE YOU ACTUALLY GOING TO TRY AND VOTE YES TO SOME THINGS TO HELP THIS FRIGGEN COUNTRY
SO FUCKING SICK OF FOLKS ELECTED INTO OFFICE WHO JUST SIT THERE AND SAY NO TO HELP THEIR PARTY
EVEN WHEN YES MIGHT HELP THEIR COUNTRY!!!!!!
AAAAK
but im not talking about politics today
today i want to talk about the new hit tv show on showtime
THE BIG C
damn this show is good
and the acting amazing
and its already made me cry my eyes out several times
especially the season finale
but what it’s mostly got me doing
is thinking
thinking about what i would do if i thought i only had a year or three to live
and then it got me thinking
that just maybe we all should live our lives as if we only have a year or three to live
those gifts, money, kindnesses, charity donations
that we planned on giving after we croak
how bout giving them now
when folks can actually look you in the eye and say THANK YOU
i don’t know kids
but this rock and roll chick
is planning on living my life large, proud
and loud
how bout you?

BRING BACK THE SWITCH

well kids i voted today
of course
and i gotta say
i really hated the new voting system here in nyc
i loved going into the old-fashioned voting booths
and flipping the switches
reminded me of growing up and seeing my mom vote
and it all seeming so adult
first time i voted i felt like a huge person, not fat but awesome
today
it was the new
fill in the paper ballot
then scan it into a computer thing
there was no satisfying flipping of switches
nobody seemed to understand if the scanned paper should be up or down
it was very well un-sexy
not to mention
isn’t this all incredibly lousy for the environment
the trees and so on!!
i still feel an empty un-satisfying feeling when i buy a metro-card and slide it into the subway turnstyle
i so miss feeling the token in my hand
dropping it in the slot
everything metal is paper these days
or electronic
but sometimes
it just feels good to feel a tangible thing
the switches of the voter booth
the small bagel subway token
a book that has paper, that you can flip thru while sitting in a cozy chair, a real newspaper that leaves bits of ink on your fingers and smells like the press it came from
i guess this whole voting thing today was one more old-fashioned satisfying thing that has been upgraded
but are all upgrades really an improvement
voting today felt sloppy and confusing
the damn metro-card machines never seem to want to accept my crumpled money
and hey
now its almost impossible to just go out and buy a friggen CD
i miss buying cd’s hell
i miss buying albums too for that matter
especially the import 45′s that came in brown paper
they felt so OUTLAW
wooo
i bought the sex pistols
god save the queen
in the import section of Jack’s music store in red bank new jersey
it was in a brown paper sleeve
it felt like buying drugs man
so renegade
well i am digressing clearly

on other news
what i feel the democrats did right is LOTS
but few seem to know it
because of what the democrats did wrong
and COMPLETE failure to BRAG
i did not learn until this week
about Obama’s credit card reform work
i know
i know
thats a bit of major oversight on my part
but really
now my credit card company can not just blatantly rip me off
my insurance company can not dump me for getting sick
my brother’s kids will not get kicked off his insurance until they are 26 and have some chance of getting their own
these are all good things
but we don’t hear about them
we hear all kinds of lies spread widely by a fierce loud and very alpha republican party that folks believe
hell i was even starting to believe a few of them
i do think the dems will take some butt kicking today
hope its not as bad as folks thing it will be
but i think its a lesson
that being humble is fine in private life
but when you’re in office
you need to stand up and BOAST
we need LOUDER
PROUDER
BIGGER BALLED DEMS
and we need them NOW!!

until then
im gonna go find some switches and tokens to fondle
i need to get satiated
