Ok… Just read about this over here. I don’t know why but this kinda makes me sad. A conference on blogging.. I suppose it makes sense and its all fine but it just feels like mainstreaming and corpratizing of a kinda cool underground type thing. Not that big a deal really and probably inevitable.. But it kinda makes me long for the days when all of this technology was moved forward by folks who did things they thought were cool rather than cuz it made good business sense. Suppose that dates me huh?

Ah well.. I’ll shut up… 😉

Schwarzenegger Calls Democratic Lawmakers ‘Girlie Men’

C’mon Gov.. When are ya gonna give up on the catch phrases from Hollywood? They are tired and many (like this one) are offensive.. And this one isn’t even your quote.. jeezzz… Focus on getting the budget passed – Currently you’re doing no better than your predecessor. We STILL don’t have a state budget and offensive digs aren’t really gonna help ya accomplish that. ‘Nuff said.

Grease and TV

Note to self… Greasy pizza for dinner in conjunction with a really disturbing episode of Six Feet Under doesn’t lend itself to a good night’s sleep. We decided to have a lazy night so we orderred some North Beach Pizza and watched 6 Feet Under. Unfortunately the show last night was REALLY DISTURBING and the pizza was good but greasy… Do the math… I slept like CRAP last night… That’ll teach me… Turn off the TV if its messed up and don’t eat things that I know better… A salad and happy TV would have suited me much better! 😉

Happy Monday! 🙂

Kevin and I went to the HRC dinner tonight in San Francisco and had a fantastic time.. At least I did… Apple sponsored the HRC for the event so there was a table of 10 of us that were there representing the mother-ship and it was a lot of fun.. It was held at Moscone West which was a bit sterile for an event like that (I’ve been in the past at other venues that have been more inviting)… But regardless, as usual, I walked out feeling like I should be doing more to get involved and help out. They do a good job of working toward equal rights toward the GLTB community and did a good job of communicating to the audience the importance of the struggle and how it relates to so many other things.

In particular they did a great job of pointing out how the fight for Marriage equality relates closely to the fight for equality in so many other ways and how, while ‘civil unions’ may seem like a good first step in a lot of ways we shouldn’t be settling because such unions don’t afford any of the same rights by definition as legal civil marriage does.

At any rate… A good time was had by all and I feel like i need to be out there helping… But right now i’m going to crash out and hope i don’t wake up with a hangover in the morning! 🙂

A special place in…

Just read this quote from Sen. Rick Santorum (thanks to bloggy)

“I would argue that the future of our country hangs in the balance because the future of marriage hangs in the balance,” he said shortly before the vote. “Isn’t that the ultimate homeland security, standing up and defending marriage?”

Does he REALLY believe that my desire for basic equal rights is the most important security issue facing them? He and Karl Rove really need to keep their eye on the ball… (I have a few other choice words for those two but I’ll refrain for now since i’m in a good mood).. Gotta agree with barry that there really are more important things to be worrying about.
