Happy Christmas (War is Over) - John Lennon Dec. 25th, 2004 @ 10:48 pm

(Happy Xmas Kyoko
Happy Xmas Julian)

So this is Xmas
And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
And so this is Xmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young

A very Merry Xmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Xmas (war is over)
For weak and for strong (if you want it)
For rich and the poor ones (war is over)
The world is so wrong (if you want it)
And so happy Xmas (war is over)
For black and for white (if you want it)
For yellow and red ones (war is over)
Let's stop all the fight (now)

A very Merry Xmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Xmas (war is over)
And what have we done (if you want it)
Another year over (war is over)
A new one just begun (if you want it)
And so happy Xmas (war is over)
We hope you have fun (if you want it)
The near and the dear one (war is over)
The old and the young (now)

A very Merry Xmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

War is over, if you want it
War is over now

Happy Xmas

Here's to hoping you all had a wonderful Christmas full of peace and tranquility.


Uncontrollable Happiness (With a Hint of Satire) Nov. 5th, 2004 @ 05:34 pm
I'm happy. I haven't felt like there was no weight on my shoulders or just plain joyful in 3 or 4 months, so I thought my happiness was of note. The only person who could hold back my happiness is our president (WTF were the majority of the voters thinking!!? I'd rather two men (or women) walk down the aisle, than to be homeless or just another casualty), but as long as I continue to deny to myself that the man is still our president (which I intend to do), I will continue to stay happy. So I'm saying no to unhappiness, and saluting President Kerry.

I was watching Channel 1 News (A news show that is specially designed for schools, and, without trying to, makes a remark about the commercialization and the capatilization of America that would be hard to be find in such an obvious way anywhere else. It's includes groundbreaking information, such as the fact that tanning can cause skin cancer (That was one of the head news stories for August 19, 2004. Maybe I'm being ridiculous, but if your a news program aren't you supposed to provide us with new information?), commercials for everything from acne cream to skittles, and every top 40 song that they can possibly fit into the program) the other day, and it really insulted me that my principal insists that each teacher at our school must make his/her students watch this program. I don't go to school to watch commercials, and I seriously doubt a program such as this has anything to do with me learning the Spanish language. So, while I was sitting there in class, I wrote an essay to vent out my anger. This is what I wrote:

"Channel 1 should give us real news instead of telling us that Google is going to start selling stock. I don't think something as commercialized as this show should be forced upon us. The goal of Channel 1 News seems to be to provide students with the news in the most sugarcoated way possible. They need to come back to reality, and stop acting like teenagers are ignorant or don't give a damn about the world. They need to tell us the truth. Stop sugarcoating everything, and tell us why we're really at war. Tell us the truth about how an overpopulated world might affect us. Tell us why acres of trees are being cut down every day. Tell us why after preaching abstinence and deciding to leave protection out of our health class curriculum, people get so shocked when girls come to school pregnant. Tell us why we're forced to take and teachers are told to obsess over a test that our president made mandatory, but wouldn't be able to pass if his life was on the line. Tell us the truth. We're not scared, but we need to know. There are already to many lies in the world."

Hey. So, at this moment, who would you vote for--John Kerry or George Bush? I have to say I would definitely vote for Kerry. He's not necessarily the most charismatic or exciting presidential candidate to ever run, but he's got a lot of great qualities and he's not Bush. We're at war right now, and we need a man who has the strength and integrity to win this war and get our troops out of Iraq. Kerry has these qualities and a military background, and doesn't fake the fact that he could figure out a way to win this war and get our troops back home. Bush has no military background, and I believe he has no plan on how to get us out of war. Having "idealistic views" is not enough to get our troops home. Every month we are sending more and more troops to Iraq, and my brother's girlfriend got a draft notice in the mail a month ago. This war is not going to end any time soon at the rate we're going. I believe Kerry could turn this path around. He seems to know what's he doing, and he seems to honestly care about the people who are dying every day for our country. He knows what it's like out there, he's been to war. Kerry saved a man during the war; Bush has never been to war and he almost killed himself by choking on a pretzel. Kerry may not be completely happy with the war, but he realizes that we've gone so far that we can't just turn back and not finish the job. There's a lot at stake here. We can either finish the job or we can turn around and pretend like nothing ever happened. Anyone in their right mind realizes that we have to finish the job at hand, which is to take care of the people in Iraq and make sure that the people in Iraq are taken care of. I believe that John Kerry is the best man for this job.

Michael Ian Black Outtakes from I Love the 90's

C'mon, admit it! He's the best reason, besides Hal Sparks and the nostalgia factor, to watch the I love the...."whatever they're lovin' this week" series.

I miss him. I don't want to go into he is, and no one who reads this except for one person would know who he is anyways, but I do, I really miss him. Now, he's back in S.A., and I'm still here in Houston. Things haven't changed much since January, but oh well, you know? At least we're still friends.

Anyways, I've been listening to Ben Folds Five lately, and I've come to the realization that Ben Folds is a god. If you haven't heard his music before, you should dl "Brick" and any other Ben Folds Five songs that you can find.

Brick- Ben Folds Five


6 am day after Christmas
I throw some clothes on in the dark
The smell of cold
Car seat is freezing
The world is sleeping
I am numb

Up the stairs to the apartment
She is balled up on the couch
Her mom and dad went down to Charlotte
They're not home to find us out
And we drive
Now that I have found someone
I'm feeling more alone
Than I ever have before

She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly
Off the coast and I'm headed nowhere
She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly

They call her name at 7:30
I pace around the parking lot
Then I walk down to buy her flowers
And sell some gifts that I got
Can't you see
It's not me you're dying for
Now she's feeling more alone
Than she ever has before

She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly
Off the coast and I'm headed nowhere
She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly

As weeks went by
It showed that she was not fine
They told me son, it's time to tell the truth

She broke down, and I broke down
Cause I was tired of lying

Driving home to her apartment
For a moment we're alone
Yeah she's alone
I'm alone
Now I know it

She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly
Off the coast and I'm headed nowhere
She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly


I've been hearing this song a lot lately, and it's constantly on rotation in my mind, so I figured it meant something. So, I decided to put the lyrics in here.

Oh, and for anyone who has not seen Ghost World, I'd strongly advise you to rent it. It's a really, really good movie.

It's sad that animals are being locked up in cages at the zoo just so people can peer at them, but if you really think about it, it's probably better that they're there. I mean, humans are taking away so many of the resources that these animals depend upon that at least in a zoo, they don't have to worry about having their home cut down or their food taken away. Does anyone else find this ironic?
