This is my first real attempt at an on-line journal. It'll be parts political, parts personal, parts other. I'll try to keep it interesting, whatever I write. Feedback is appreciated...

UPDATE: Ok, I've taken a step to avoid spammers. So anyone can post comments again, you'll just have to do a word verification first. No big deal, just a minor pain in the ass, courtesy of the fucktards.

Aspiring novelist (hey, write, call or e-mail if you can hook me up with a literary agent...no hurries though, I've only just started).

Note: Sideways, being a movie I obtained after I started this, is ineligible for this year. Next year I'll do another one of these for all of the movies I have obtained between now and then. You can bet it'll be a big player in several categories.

Quick note on my Fantasy teams: with one week gone by, the early returns are...not good. 'Roid Rage is in 7th place out of 8 teams and the Paper Street Soap Co is in 10th out of 12. The problem, simply, was a complete lack of offense for both teams. However, it is a marathon, not a sprint, and I am confident that the bats for both will heat up, and sooner rather than later. The stars for the week: for 'Roid Rage, SP Jon Lieber, who recorded 2 wins with an ERA of 3.29. For Paper Street, it was OF Cliff Floyd, who had a .385 OBP and socked 2 jacks.
