Thanks to all who took part in protesting the shotgun wedding of the COICA bill.

Victory: Internet Censorship Bill is Delayed, For Now
Deeplink by Tim Jones
This morning's Politico brought with it great news for those who care about free speech and fair use online:
A markup on SJC Chairman Leahy’s IP infringement bill was postponed late Wednesday, as staffers anticipated the chamber would finish legislative work and adjourn for recess… Continue
There are actually two Tea Party movements in America today: one you’ve read about that is not that important and one you’ve not read about that could become really important if the right politician understood how to tap into it.

The Tea Party that has gotten all the attention, the amorphous, self-generated protest against the growth in government and the deficit, is what I’d… Continue
Could it be? Taylor B is back? I thought he died years ago!
I apologize for the lack of involvement in the vloggerheads community. I have gone through some difficult times this year. I have to say that this year has been my worst year by far. I hope to get back on the horse and start vlogging again.
This pattern I'm starting, the same one that I followed after my father's funeral, is so very familiar to me. It starts with me feeling depressed when I sit in my apartment, alone and sober, and can't sleep without a couple of drinks in my system.

All in all i'm really happy. I've also lost a pile of weight and feel great!!
I realize only a select few will appreciate the parody of DragonballZ...I was shown this by a guy whose computer I was working on...after watching an episode with him...I have to admit that I wouldn't know it from the original...Ooops…
Random though this declaration may seem, there's reason it comes up. Starting this afternoon, my day was a giant ball of stress (damned early bills being sprung on me without warning), and my usual response is to bury myself in some Palahniuk and remember to stop caring; about pretty much everything entirely. An interesting (or unfortunate, for some) side-effect of this process is a habit I have anyways, but becomes more prevalent during moments of intense stress: I… Continue
