I'm a little confused about all this "Iran better not..." and "If Korea does this, then we'll..." talk from the U.S. government. What do they think they're going to do to these countries, precisely? The U.S. hasn't even been able to wrap up this Iraq thing, which seems to always have been a significantly less serious threat.

It kind of reminds me of that Black Knight scene in Monty Python's "Quest for the Holy Grail".

"What are you gonna do? Bleed on me?"

"I'm invincible!"

"You're a loony."




Oh wait. I guess we have nukes we can launch at them, too. I guess that settles it.

'Tis but a flesh wound!

Pundits have been wondering where the real anti-war fire has been. College students just don't seem as interested as they were during Vietnam.

I think that all that needs to happen is for us to start a conflict with one of those other members of the "Axis of Evil" which would probably require the return of conscription. The shit will then proceed to hit the fan.

Yeah. As soon as the draft starts, people will flip the fuck out. The approval for this war is pretty damn low as it is, you introduce that, and seriously people will flip.

The problem is, North Korea and Iran are organized and powerful enough to fight back. Hell, North Korea already has ICBMs. No wonder the US started the "Reliable Replacement Warhead" project. At this rate, we're likely to get into another cold war... But with a country with shaky trigger finger.


"Oh? All right, we'll call it a draw."

"Oh. Oh, I see. Running away, eh? You yellow bastards!"

I think it's amusing that we're always telling other countries to get rid of their nukes and their "Weapons of Mass Destruction", but there's nobody telling us to get rid of ours. In fact, the only country to ever use a Nuke on an actual enemy target was America.

Even though it is already past midnight, since I have not yet gone to sleep, I still consider it the 4th therefire it is not too late for me to wish you a Happy Birthday. I just wanted to let you know I am thinking of you.

I actually think you're one of the few people I have more in common with now than I did 5 years ago. Yet somehow I knew you back then while I haven't talked to you in ages.

Hey Rachel. What's been going on? You disappeared at some point there. I knew you were going through some BS, so never much questioned the disappearance. Interesting you leaving this comment, as I was going to reply to your post on Myspace about CD promotion, something I have a lot of experience with.

I was talking to my old roommates, who are in Phallus Uber Alles. They said you are booking shows in NYC now. How is that going? I might be interested in coming out and throwing down a set sometime. Would give me a good reason to come to NYC besides visiting friends, which is also something I need to do. Of course, if you ever want to do a show in Detroit, I could probably make that happen.

Hey there. Things got hard so I got into better music and developed a sense of aesthetics. I actually found you cause you had PUA listed as an interest. I'm performing with them in Toronto for the Digital Hardcore fest. Not sure where I lost you but it's nice to be back in contact. I'm less of a booker than a musician who likes to play with good bands. Let me know when you'd like to come to NYC. Started an all female industrial act called Nuclear Riot Party. Working on some solo stuff too. Life is insane these days. How about you? Detroit could be fun...
