“The one concession I’ve made to maintain some form of sanity is that I’ve taken to censoring my news, just like the old Soviet Union.”

Larry David on the countdown to the election:

Five times a day I’ll still say to someone, “I don’t know what I’m going to do if McCain wins.” Of course, the reality is I’m probably not going to do anything. What can I do? I’m not going to kill myself. If I didn’t kill myself when I became impotent for two months in 1979, I’m certainly not going to do it if McCain and Palin are elected, even if it’s by nefarious means. If Obama loses, it would be easier to live with it if it’s due to racism rather than if it’s stolen. If it’s racism, I can say, “Okay, we lost, but at least it’s a democracy. Sure, it’s a democracy inhabited by a majority of disgusting, reprehensible turds, but at least it’s a democracy.” If he loses because it’s stolen, that will be much worse. Call me crazy, but I’d rather live in a democratic racist country than a non-democratic non-racist one. (It’s not exactly a Hobson’s choice, but it’s close, and I think Hobson would compliment me on how close I’ve actually come to giving him no choice. He’d love that!)

More here. Just hilarious.

Was that cut? Or…

Just not feeling it…

I was going to post something interesting today. But I’m just not feeling it. I have early 19th century religion on the brain.

So instead, I’ll point you to two excellent pieces of snark from Randy Lauder.

Go. Read. Enjoy. Come back tomorrow.

The obvious is awesome…

The very much obvious and long awaited Bioware Star Wars MMO has been announced. This is great news, though I remain skeptical. I was – as they say – burned by Star Wars: Galaxies.

All of the revelant info is here. What looks interesting is that they are trying to “humanize” the Sith, which doesn’t really makie sense in the Star Wars context but if you’re going to go the WoW route it seems necessary. I am dubious that this “story-driven” concept will work. But if it does I think it’ll solve a  lot of problems I have with MMO – namely that you are a walking, talking, murdering math equation and not much else.. But we will have to see.

Consider me very interesting in how this project is going to shape up.

Oh and the graphics (righ now) kind of suck. But whatever.
