Reading about the events of 1919: inflation, socialism vs. anarchy, bombings, Russian influence, insoluble labor disputes, immigration crisis, mass deportations. We’ve come such a long way in 100 years.

TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY WAR!

This is the song I wrote on September 17, 2001, six days after the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and recorded on October 6. I couldn’t stop thinking that these attacks would bring the United States to war. The Soviet Union, the cold war, the Berlin wall were all ten years behind us. It was one of the most peaceful times in recent history. But, as I mention in the song, nuclear weapons still existed, and I feared that the third World War was on the horizon. So far, thankfully, I was wrong.

A lot of opinion is based on absolute concepts, but most concepts aren’t absolute. We need water to live, but too much is deadly, you know? It’s about balance, people. There are good reasons to do x, and good reasons not to do x. What works for you doesn’t work for me. Cost/benefit analysis. Now apply that to (almost) everything: water, food, sleep, music, cats, drugs, abortion, religion, government force, whatever. Yeah, I know it requires thinking, but you'll appear smarter than you would calling someone who disagrees with you stupid.

All right, so here’s how I think we should handle roads without taxation. Property owners own and are responsible for the sidewalk and street as it were an extension of their parking lot or driveway. They maintain it at their expense (tax deductible, of course.) Highways are paid for by toll (also tax deductible) and/or corporate sponsorship.

Severe depression tortures me every single morning, and sometimes all day long. I dread every moment of every day. It really makes it difficult to function.
When you are open about depression and anxiety people mark you down as a miserable person. I'm an intense person. When I feel happiness or love I feel those things intensely, and I feel pain intensely. It's the price of feeling.

I just discovered something in my subconscious that’s kind of disturbing. Everybody tells me I complain too much and express gratitude too little, and I do. I know I do. So I’ve been trying to force myself to be more grateful. I have discovered that I actually have a fear of gratitude. It sounds silly but it’s true! Instead of expressing my gratitude to God, I actually try to hide it from Him (as if that were possible) because I’m afraid — terrified! — that the moment God finds out that I appreciate something, He’ll take it away (or so the pattern of my life would seem to indicate). I know it’s crazy! I know it’s wrong! But it’s a very real part of my sick mind. So how do I fix it?

“RESPECT IS EARNED, NOT GIVEN”
I saw this statement the other day and it made me think. After some consideration, I finally decided that I disagree. Respect must be given at some point, otherwise none of us would have it. We respect strangers, don’t we? It’s not some precious resource that we need to dole out in small portions. It seems like it these days, but we can always make more. Give your respect away freely! You may be surprised how much you get in return! Respect is infectious. Respect everybody, especially the ones who don’t deserve it!

It’s a little after the fact, but the thought just occurred to me. Do socialists celebrate Independence Day? I’m not trying to start a flame war; it’s a serious question. Independence Day is a celebration of the colonists declaring their independence from the British Empire, but those who think socialism is the way to go are declaring their desire to once again become dependent to an empire. The two seem incompatible to me.

A piece of rope walks into a bar and orders a drink. The bartender says, “I’m sorry, but we don’t serve pieces of rope.” So the piece of rope goes back outside. He tousles one end of himself, and then ties himself in the middle. Then he goes back into the bar and orders a drink. The bartender says, “Aren’t you that same piece of rope that was just in here?” The piece of rope says, “I’m a frayed knot.”

HAPPY THANKSGIVING,
UNITED STATES

THANKSGIVING DAY, another of my favorite holidays. Anything that has to do with eatin’ is bound to be my favorite. “Turkey Day”, “Feast Day”, this day goes by many names. Either of these will do since we’re more likely to feast on some turkey than actually have a thankful attitude here in the United States. Personally, I can’t wait to sink my teeth into some pumpkin pie. Mmm, delicious! Don’t forget its cousin the sweet potato. It’s making me hungry, just thinking about it.

The first Thanksgiving Day is generally considered to be the feast that was held in Plymouth in 1621, although there have been many harvest festivals in the U.S. before and since. President Washington declared Thursday, November 26 Thanksgiving Day in the first year of his presidency in 1789, but an annual Thanksgiving Day was not a U.S. tradition until 1863 when President Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day every year on the last Thursday in November. In 1939, President Franklin Roosevelt, hoping to start the Christmas shopping season a little early to help bring the country out of the Great Depression, declared that Thanksgiving Day be held on the second-to-last Thursday in November. In 1941, Congress passed a bill stating Thanksgiving Day be celebrated on the 4th Thursday in November, which is usually the last Thursday in November and sometimes it isn’t.

This got me confused this year, because there is a 5th Thursday this November. All last week, I kept thinking that Thanksgiving Day was two weeks away, until I found out that it was this week. So I guess we’ll be celebrating “Franksgiving” as it was called in Roosevelt’s day.

Well, whatever you call it, have a good one. Get you some turkey and some pie, watch a parade, watch some football (watch the Lions lose), get together with the family and have a good time. Most of all, don’t forget to be thankful to whichever god you worship, and if you don't worship a god then thank whomever does the cookin’. (Washing the dishes remains a thankless job!)

On a side note, other celebrations taking place over the next two weeks are Revolution Day in Mexico (the 20th) and Independence Day in Yemen (20th), Lebanon (22nd), Suriname (25th), Mongolia (26th), Panama and Albania (28th), and Barbados (30th). It’s always Independence Day somewhere. Well, wherever you are, HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!

The latest issue of Rolling Stone is the first available online, which is pretty damn cool. Welcome to the 21st century. With a news stand price of seven bucks an issue, maybe I can afford to read it again. (I think the last issue I actually paid for was the one that had Mariah Carey half naked on the cover.) The whole magazine is available cover-to-cover: of course all the ads are there which probably make up more than half of the 213 pages, but all the interviews, photos, everything. About the only bad thing is that there’s a rock & roll quiz, half of which you won’t get, I guarentee it, no matter what era you’re from. I read the quiz, which was good, but I haven’t found the answers yet. You can’t flip back and forth like in a real paper magazine. Oh, well, what do you want for free? The answers must be somewhere in the back. I haven’t read the whole thing yet — it is 213 pages! I got as far as the close-up of a fat, old, pastey-looking Al Gore. The magazine, which recently celebrated its 1000th issue, is now celebrating its 40th anniversary. Wow, Rolling Stone and I are almost the same age. (I’m still younger.) Check it out and show your support for free content.

Harry, Ron and Hermione are seated in a restaurant. A waiter approaches carrying a tray. He holds up a plate with a small bird on it. Harry has his hand raised.
“OK, now who ordered the phoenix?”


HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX, possibly the best film in the series so far, has loads of action, spectacular special effects, great looking sets and wonderful performances by all the actors. The showdown between Voldemort and Dumbledore is absolutely dazzling. We meet some new characters: Luna Lovegood, Kreacher the house elf, Tonks and other members of the Order, Grawp - Hagrid’s full-giant half brother, and of course Dolores Umbridge. We also get to see the Room of Requirement, the Ministry of Magic and 12 Grimauld Place. Of course the film doesn’t even compare with the original novel, but J. K. Rowling’s books are so packed with sub-plots and peripheral characters, even a four-hour film wouldn’t do it justice. They did a decent job of cramming as much story into a two-hour film as possible. The result is a very fast-paced view of Harry’s fifth year at Hogwarts. Some of the plot points are represented by quick scenes intercut together, but they work pretty well. The most glaring omissions are the trip to St. Mungo’s hospital, Harry’s interview with Rita Skeeter in The Quibbler, and Ron and Ginny joining the Gryffindor quidditch team. The film has a more modern feel, maybe because the actors are all aging rapidly. Dudley looks ten years older than he did in the last film (oh, wait, he wasn’t in the last one) and at first I though they recast Arthur Weasley (but they didn’t). The actress playing Umbridge isn’t the toad-faced old hag described in the book (she actually has kind of a cute smile) and her hem-hem sounds more like a giggle. She did however portray the character acurately and the viewers will come to hate her despite her smiles and giggles. Altogether, a good piece. I highly recommend it, and if you haven’t read the book, see the movie first and then READ THE BOOK!

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!!
Donnie Love sitting on a tree stump wearing a big tall Uncle Sam hat

Hey, everybody! Happy holiday! Isn’t 4th of July great? It’s right in the middle of summer, you’ve got the fireworks, barbecues and everything. I love Independence Day: strictly an American holiday, celebrating the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. And for America’s birthday, I won’t even go into what a bloated cesspool of corruption the government has become since then. I’ll forget all that for one day and just have fun. America: love it or help fix it! So get out there, enjoy the fireworks (if your city is actually showing them on the 4th) and please drink carefully! Happy 231st Birthday U.S.A.

Darth Vader unmasked to reveal Alfred E. Neuman

Original artwork which appeared on the cover of Mad Magazine June 1983. This is what they paid me:

A $500 bill from a Mad Magazine board game

Ha ha, just kidding. This picture never appeared on the cover. Actually, I drew it when I was fifteen years old, but I never submitted it or anything. I wasn’t totally happy with the way it turned out. I still think parts of it look kind of crappy, but overall it’s kind of visually appealing. Look how I put my name all huge and bold almost near the center of the picture.

I rebooted my computer today.
Man, I hate doing that.

I saw Spiderman 3 over the weekend. What can I say about it? It was great, of course. Special effects are spectacular, they will blow you away. Story’s good: Peter wants to ask his girlfriend to marry him, but he is distanced by his fame as the friendly neighborhood web-slinger, and later overcome by some black alien slime. (Didn’t he get the black suit in the Secret Wars back in the 80’s? I don’t know, as far as comics, I was more of an X-Men reader.) Two new villains are created. It’s always bugged me the way they create and kill off a supervillain in the same story. They do that in this one - oops I hope I didn’t spoil it for you. Topher Grace was good in it. He’s got a boyish face that can either help or hurt a good actor. I like his acting, but he’s not very scary. I thought it was good to see Thomas Haden Church, although I looked at his filmography, looks like he keeps busy. He looks old. Beyond that, nothing remarkable. Typical superhero stuff. About as believable as a Godzilla movie. I have a picture of Spiderman that I drew when I was a kid. If I find it, I’ll post it in the archives later. I drew him more cartoonish looking. I know it’s around here somewhere.

HELLO WORLD!
Donnie Love sitting at a bar talking to a skeleton

“So, how’s life treatin’ ya?”

Don’t ya know I just love ya, with your hyperinflated gas prices and your dog-eat-dog economics. Can’t wait to get out there and fall further behind. Just warms my heart. And, of course, I love my job. It’s more fun than soaring head-first into a brick wall. I don’t know what I’d do if I didn’t have the Almighty Dollar to slave for. It really gives my life purpose. I wish I could do it 24 hours a day. Hell, I wish I could spend 48 hours a day pulling the cart. Maybe today I’ll actually get that carrot. Beat the other guy to the brass ring. That’s what life’s all about, right? Rob your neighbor, even if you have to club him over the head to do it, or better yet, blow his head clean off his shoulders in the name of God. That would make me a hero. Yes, today promises to be a great day. This might be the day I get that promotion and probably a raise, or I might get fired, whichever. The possibilities are endless. The anticipation excites me. I am now ready to face the day, to take the bull by the horns and land wherever he flings me.

I think I’m becoming agoraphobic.

WHAT UP?
Donnie Love sitting on a tree stump wearing a big tall Uncle Sam hat

Hey, it’s me! What up? Just figured I’d make myself a little web presence here. I paid the registration fee ahead for 100 years, a feeble attempt at immortality. So any other Donnie Loves who wanted this domain name, too bad. I got it. Ha ha! More later...
