Pirates Suck

Firefly was a waste of Whedon.

Comic books are for illiterate five-year-olds.

Macs blow.

And space dolphins are way better than space monkeys.

I gave your dog a biscuit. She looks like she came from the same litter as my dog!

She says "Thank you!"

I debated whether to get a puppy or a duck. I already have a real, live puppy and I didn't want her to get jealous!

OK, I decided to go ahead and give in to your oh-so-subtle attempt to prick us into posting (what, you couldn't find a marching band?) - let's go!

* Nathan Fillion, who played Mal in "Firefly" and reprises the role in the upcoming "Serenity" (and is a known favorite of Lisa’s) said this in an interview about "Serenity":

"Joss is a brilliant man. He’s one of those guys that is so very, very clever, he can leave you in the dust intellectually. But he’s one of those guys that keeps his feet on the ground and doesn’t ever make you feel stupid. He’s far more intelligent than I. How he does it? I don’t know. If I could kill him and take that talent I would."


* Hmm ... I wonder how many illiterate five-year-olds were on the Pulitzer committee (http://www.randomhouse.com/pantheon/graphicnovels/spiegelman.html)

And I guess the account of a girl growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution isn't very worthwhile (http://www.bookreporter.com/reviews/0375422307.asp) ... even if Bookslut did interview the author (http://www.bookslut.com/features/2004_10_003261.php). Hey, wait a minute - isn't Bookslut one of your ... why, yes it is!

And, just because learning is fun: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Understanding_Comics

* Yeah, Macs blow. Like today, when your PC crashed every time you tried to download that file you needed. Y’know … the one I downloaded for you … on my Mac …

* Space dolphins? Proof that there is such a thing as too much patchouli. Space monkeys mean science!

* And just because you laughed too: "Humor is perhaps a sense of intellectual perspective, an awareness that some things are really important, others not; and that the two kinds are most oddly jumbled in everyday affairs." - Christopher Morley

Sorry about the links, by the way - I haven't tinkered around with that yet.

Oh, and one more thing: Pirates have had, and continue to have, a lasting impact on commerce and trade, international politics and society in general. It's also fun to talk like one. Yar.

I've never claimed to be anything but neurotic, needy, and immature.

And since when have you ever known me to use patchouli?

The stuff gives me a queasy headache.
