Jesus is coming to take your soulWhere exactly does the extra money people are expecting from me this time of year come from? I’m just sayin’…with all these donation drives and charity drives this time of year in addition to buying presents leaves me too broke to do anything over the holidays. Happy frikkin’ holidays, I’m broke. I am supposed to shop but don’t have the money for it. Nice combo.
I refuse to go deeper into credit card debt just for that warm holiday feeling. I will stay within my budget.
By the way I need a new iPod Nano for Christmas…
Jesus is coming for your soul. Does that idea frighten anyone?

Mr. Bartender and his Big Bad Woof are leaving us – here’s me pursing lips and sinking ships with TJ at Remington’s last week. Casey, over my shoulder to my right, is lookin’ smokin’ hot:

Skinjob alertSocialist realism propaganda posters for Battlestar Galactica troop recruitment. I love it.
Another blog bites the dust. Goddammit, Carl! And yet fake blogs are still on the rise. Darin exposes yet again the multiple layers of deceit weaved by someone who delights in deceiving people through his fake, made-up blog(s). I’ve been through this crap already, yet the guy persists even though he’s been long-busted. Sad, weird stuff – I don’t know what drives this person to use other people’s names, photos, and identities to continue to maintain his various personae, but it’s always kinda sick.
All of this has happened before, all of it will happen again, so say we all. The skinjob Cylon will be exposed, sooner or later.

Matthew Foxxy-Foxx as Racer X in the upcoming live-action adaptation of Speed Racer. He is not scruffy in this role, sadly. But the movie looks interesting as Speed Racer will be played by my new favorite, Emile Hirsch, with his parents played by Susan Sarandon and John Goodman. Interesting casting.

    That’s three blogs I have heard of today that are folding. I am sure some are folding totally because of the chaos that Lazarous creature has reaped upon the blogworld. Wouldn’t it be great if he could just do an open letter of honesty to start the New Year? I think it would bring peace and joy in the blogworld. He has wrecked so much havoc. The weak are closing up shop, whereas the strong stay firmly planted.

    Funny, I just heard “The Closing of the Year” playing in the grocery store a few minutes ago. I love that song. I remember seeing the terrible movie “Toys” in the theater when it came out in 1992, and I nearly had a stroke to see Wendy up on the screen in the opening scene. “It’s Wendy! It’s Wendy!!” I whispered frantically to my friends.
    “Who??” they asked?
    Philistines.

    I love how you bitch about being broke and not being able to buy gifts and then jump right to the ask for the Nano! Now that is Klassy!
    Regardless…the blog is a lot of fun and has be made me smile many times in 2007…thank you!
    All the best in 2008!

    I agree withyou on the Christmas sentiment..
    But I have my reservations regarding “Mach Go Go Go” aka SPEED RACER to you non Japanese speaking folk.
    マッハgo go go は日本の白いません。
    that is how I feel. then again I am a purist when it comes to Anime.

    Obviously someone doesn’t itemize.
    Even godless heathens give this time of year because this is when you look for the deductions. Give closetful of clothes that don’t fit to Goodwill. Check. Basement full of building materials to Community Forklift. Check. A few more dollars in the Roth. Check, but no rush. And extra change lying around to alma mater, arts non-profit, advocacy group, any 501c-whatever with their grubby hands out. Check, check and scribble-scribble-scribble on the check.
    You’re broke now. Hopefully, when you’re done with the schooling, you’ll have money and will itemize and write $50 to the Univ of some freezing cold state as well as UMCP.
    You tell me Jesus is coming. I say, look busy.

    Oh Jimbo!, thank you for posting Kate Bush’s “December Will Be Magic Again.” It’s one of my all-time faves. Happy Holidays!

    If vintage noir rough trade is going to be a regular feature you might want to consider Lee Harvey Oswald. I always thought he was hot in that crazy skinny lone assassin dead Marine kind of way.

    Well, it’s a bit comforting that I’m not the only relatively poor gay in the country 😀
    Now, those BSG posters… fantastic find! I might seriously consider getting the How to Spot a Cylon poster.

    Well, I guess it means that the season of the blog is ending/has ended. There are far too many out there as it is and most, aside from yours and TJ’s ;), really have don’t have a whole lot to say.

    No, this is generally not a problem. Each member fills out a class/work schedule at the beginning of each semester and then the labor czar(ina) fits everyone into the master labor schedule. Note, however, that you can only be excused from doing labor at a specific time if you can prove that you have class or work at that time (wanting to sleep in or wanting to study at a particular time are not considered legitimate reasons to not be able to do labor).

    Only found out when I scrolled down to this comment field that the original post is nearly a year old – but in todays 2008 world it applies more than ever.
    There are two things I dislike about the christmas season:
    1) the wishlist from family members and friends gets longer and longer every year with more an more expensive items
    2) everyone is begging for donations – not only in the streets but I also get approached from charities I have never heard of before.
    As I was wondering how much of my hard worked for and then donated dollars ended up to cover administrative costs in charities (I never got a decent reply when I raised this question), I switched to making my donations directly. I give to my church and their projects directly or I support the local foodbank directly. No way that my money gets lost in administraion.
    Btw, hope you are doing better this (2008) christmas season.
    Tom

    I absolutely loved Wendy & Lisa’s song. Hope this new (2009) year started better for you 😉

    Loved the song. A Great Start to the new year

  15. Kari says:

    Killer song choices! And I totally agree – Christmas simply costs too much!
