Brutal Women, Babies, and Boy Bands

OK, I hate Condi Rice’s foreign policy. I think she’s a big bully. But you gotta give the woman props. I do agree with the critique of the choice: Bush is getting everybody in top positions who agrees with his politics (yes. This is a Bad Thing. Surrounding yourself with a bunch of people who have the same opinions as you do means you’re gonna come out lopsided and uninformed. Even *I* have been known to troll conservative and moderate blogs) – Colin Powell dissented with him over a number of big decisions, including blowing off the Geneva Convention while dealing with prisoners in Guantanomo. Of course, nobody listened to Powell…

In other news, my Clarion buddy Patrick and his wife Karin are now the proud parents of Garret Jameson, and I am quite happy to say that he seems very cool. So, welcome, Little G! And if you ever find yourself in the position to ask, when we’re out of fossil fuel and Condi Rice is president: no, your parents didn’t vote for him either.

I have also found a new pet boy band called The Secret Machines who I recommend. I love geeky band boys. I’d gotten numb to boy-bands for a long time, as most of the ones I was seeing all the time were the too-pretty talentless hacks who went on to star in tabloid magazines and reality TV. Vomit. Anyhow, tSM have got a video here, but I think the album is better, and the best part – it’s performed and produced as an album, not an amalgamation of poppish songs written by other people. More about them here.
