Re: DEcember 13 and 14, 2008

As a Texan who has spent several Christmases in a trailer, I can't help but feel a little bit of nostalgia every time I hear "Merry Christmas from the Family" by Robert Earl Keen. It makes me feel all warm inside.

Re: A question for old-school songfighters:

Spud's right that the list was a list of excuses, and I thiiiiiink that excuse #3 was more specifically "I am a pussy". I will try and see if I can find the rest of the list using that phrase.

Re: What would you rather have?

Are those people you know particularly great? Perhaps there's a country in the world where everyone is twelve times as cool as the coolest of your friends, and you just don't know, and tomorrow they (and others) get bombed because you chose not to pick world peace, while your so-so pals can eat mor...

Re: What would you rather have?

I'd take the money. I don't understand people who would turn down a crapload of money (which they could use to help people they know and have met) in favor of world peace, which would benefit people they've never met.

Yeah, but flip it down and reverse it. How hot does it have to get before you start complaining?

Re: Question regarding Prop 8

Churches should issue marriages and governments should issue civil union/domestic partnerships. Seperate but equal is never equal. All the rights and shit are great, but people want to be marrrrried. No one wants to hear someone go down on one knee and say "Will you unite with me civilly?" or "Will...

Then fuck everything else. If there is room for improvement, and you'd like to see it happen, then quit arguing for it NOT happening.

Re: Voter Rights

I'm not bullying you, I'm asking that you explain yourself. Here is the question: How does it benefit America to have voting be unnecessarily inconvenient? It's stupid to make it hard for people to vote. Not everyone has 3 spare hours to spend in line. Not every county has early voting. Some people ...

It's that kid from the Neverending Story. My costume is pretty much solely for ladies between the ages of 30 and 35. Everyone else will just think I'm a gay Indian.

I dunno, but I think it's also fair to say that some people didn't realize their songs were awful when they first posted them.

But there's a difference between a voice that grows on you and a voice that just isn't up to par. And believe me, there is voice pushing going on to even get the dull, emotionless tone I get out of it now. I've had to stop singing for days in order to be able to speak properly again after singing t...
