oh, gawker has been on a roll of late, encompassing one guilty gossippy pleasure after another: a blind items page, more about the gay mafia than I would ever care to know about, and some more from the queen of mean ("I see gay people" sums it all up nicely, I think) who seems to believe in a gay mafia of all her own.

So it was quite a weekend what with losing money at poker and popping by to a bar night and doing an awful lot of shopping and finally seeing johnny marr and the healers at the black cat. I have to say I was a little disappointed with his band as there was none of the impressive smiths or electronic guitar work I had heard previously - although I wasn't feeling all that great and so I left a little early. So maybe they rolled out all the really good songs after I left.

Very interesting article in tuesday's health section about Asperger's syndrome, a condition similar to autism where children tend to be very shy and pedantically obsessive about a chosen subject of interest. I've also just recently heard of narcissistic personality disorder as well.

so, this little piece in the new yorker says that, according to bloomberg financial news, george w. bush will be giving himself a tax break of $44,500, which is more than my entire annual income. and dick cheney will get a tax break of $327,000. and I will get about $150. I am so thrilled.

So I got my sister a book for christmas and I read a little bit before I gave it to her - And it's so good! I really really recommend nowhere man by aleksandar hemon. It starts off with an amazingly apt description of riding through the northwest side of Chicago via El and Bus and it's all narrated in a flowing style that swerves high elegance and pulling the reader down to earth. There's an excerpt available online, from which I quote:

"I sold, for the total of seventy-four dollars, a decaying futon with a rich cat-barf pattern; a hobbly table with four chairs, inexplicably scarred, as if they had walked through fields of barbed wire. I was late with my rent, and had already looked up the word eviction in the dictionary, hoping that the secondary, obsolete meaning ("The action of conquering a country or of obtaining something by conquest") would override my landlord's primary meaning and save my ass."

Sharpeworld is on a roll of late: links to the billboard liberation front and to low-budget superheroes. That Tom Tyler is kinda cute, in his form-fitting little suit, not to mention the workout pose.

The Onion AV Club has an interview with Bloom County creator Berkeley Breathed. Oh, how I fondly remember childhood days of reading my sister's bloom county books and missing the political aspect of everything entirely. The fansite has a few strips available for viewing, including some from the Iran-Contra escapade to Antartica.
