I closed my last post on the 18th with this…
And of course, I also have to play catch up on my political blogging. And with 15 days before the election, I have plenty to talk about.
So stay tuned, cats and kitties. The shit, as they say, is about to get real.
Well…as it turns out…not so much.
First off, I got hit with my yearly winter cold which put the zap on my head so I decided to give myself a few days to get back up to snuff.
But then I got my ballot.
And I filled it out.
And I mailed it.
And then I realized that I really didn’t want to blog about the midterms anymore. Because as far as I was concerned, they were done.
And the truth is…I’m relieved.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m glad I did as much as I could. I’ve always believed that in a democracy, every voice counts. And if any of my posts made even the slightest difference in the outcome of this thing…well, good.
But I’m not going to lie to you, it’s been a slog and a half.
Some of the stuff I’ve done, I’m proud of. But a lot…more than I’d care to admit…has felt like filler. Writing not because I wanted to write about it but because I felt like I had to.
And however well intentioned that was, you do that often enough and it will drive even the most dedicated keyboard jockey to distraction. And by distraction, I mean Twitter and porn.
But now, at least for me, the die is cast. So until election day, I am declaring this blog a (For the most part and I reserve the right to rescind this if something big happens like Karl Rove’s jowls becoming sentient and demanding amnesty from his face.) political free zone.
Which means expect maybe a few film related pieces from me that I’ve been meaning to get to. Also, that video I took in Seattle isn’t going to cut itself. Plus, there is the matter of some comedy shorts that need to be done.
But before I close off Election ’10, let me say one last time. If you haven’t voted yet, FOR FUCK’S SAKES, VOTE!!!
And if you can’t vote early where you are, FOR FUCK’S SAKES, DON’T FORGET TO VOTE ON NOVEMBER 2’ND!
And friendly warning. If you choose not to vote and still complain about how fucked up things are, I will come to your house and punch you in the fucking taint!
Do not test me on this. I will do it.
