There was a period of time when I was in high school, that I really wanted to start wearing a cape around. I'm not talking like a Superman cape or anything like that but a warm, protective cape such as a midieval adventurer might wear. In some ways I wish that eBay had existed then as it did now because I could have easily found such a cape if it had but I'm also glad I never run into pictures of myself in which I'm wearing a cape for no good goddamn reason.

As far as I can tell, the earliest stages of American history boil down to two things: witch trials and rum. There is no point in time I would rather live.

I have a volume of Theodore Sturgeon short stories I am beginning to read and the foreword is written by Harlan Ellison, who's written a ton of science fiction including among other things "A Boy and His Dog." This isn't all too interesting except for I've noticed that he registered his name as a trademark so he signs all his writing like this: Harlan Ellison ®. I cannot think of a more ridiculous thing to do. The only other name I can think of that's trademarked is Walt Disney. It says, "Hey--I'm a product. Buy me!" I suppose he is at least being honest.

You know what really chuffs my nards? When people say they get more offended by people harming animals than by people harming people--especially since people normally say this w/ a voice muffled by a heavy veil of self-righteousness. Hopefully, I will run into one of these people getting mugged some day and rather than helping them, I will run off to go feed dried fish to an alley cat. "Do you care more about animals now, motherfucker?"
