War, after these messages @ 02:42 pm

eeI've been enjoying receiving people's comments to my journal entries, especially the many family members that read it that don't have lj accounts. It's cool.

We've got a mostly sunny sky with thin cotton ciris clouds very high overhead. I've started my downloading The rain is just a distant memory now with more to be had tomorrow I hear.

I didn't actually see Bush speak today, but from the highlights, I'm glad I only saw the short bits of his stupid speech. It's still "all is going perfectly in this war". "Never been better". "keep on going guys." The only thing I agreed with is the moralle building he tried to do; keep on going guys, push forward, you're doing your best I know. I support you the troops fully, our president and the administration I support to a negative degree.

I had a point for my subject line, it was a surreal experience this morning watching the Early Show on CBS. About an hour into the show they went to commercials, then came on shortly. I don't know if it was perposeful or if they screwed up in the airing, but what came out instead of probably what they wanted was only, with music and fanfare behind it, "War, afger these message!!!!" It epitomises the cable society that we live in today. Though we should know what's going on, should it be That hyped.

Today has been a day spent relaxing again. After taking a nap, I plan to do some chemical engineering of all things, amazing eh? I'll also download more stuff, I have got to get some of this Armenian music, never heard Armenian music, but damn it must be cool. There's also some Iraqi music that I think I'll have to get. The music I'm listening to now, look below, is quite cool too. It's didjeridoo music with guitar and African instruments mixed in. They are related to an artist I listen to called Baka Byond, should make a nice addition to my show for sure.

Well, must get some sleep. Final news, I hope the impending battle between a column of 1000 Elite Republican Guard and a marine unit goes well, they're heading for a colision course from hell. So is war, an endless colision course. More later.

"War, after these messages?" How freaking disturbing! All this war coverage makes me glad I sleep into the afternoon and work in the evening, so as to miss most of it, seeing as how I have no cable I can't be bombarded by CNN all night or anything when I return from work. Speaking of the war, this religious zealot I work with started going off tonight on how all the converage is emphasizing the negative aspects of the war, and we should not do that because after all the amount of American troops killed/hurt is less than the Iraqis. While I am glad so few have been hurt or killed from our side, they are still people, individuals who died and they can't be classified as a set of low casualty numbers, to me anyway. This zealot is all about pure america from what I can tell, not a very open minded guy. He is the one who said they should have let that MExican girl die without the transplants because she was using up our organs. Whose organs? White people? Please. Anyway, I think this just turned into a rant about how I don't like sealot guy. Sorry. Hehe

A mostly irrelevant comment

When I read this message the first time I got stuck on the "cotton ciris" clouds. Somehow I read that as "cotton Crisis" clouds. What do you suppose those would be? Given we're a former cotton state, I'm wondering if that phrase has any meaning. If not, I vote we come up w/ one for fun.
As for "War, after these messages," my word can it get any more ridiculous? Of course it can, but that's pretty bad. I'd like to point out that there are no commercial breaks in War. While I certainly don't want to see 24-7 coverage of the War, I find that little sound bite irritating. Until next time... "Peace, after these messages"
