PSA: Another day, another critical security flaw in internet explorer.

From eweek :Unpatched IE Flaw Is Worse Than Expected - I do apologize for it being quite technical.

One of the reasons I have the get Firefox link on oasismag, is because it's very very dangerous to use
internet explorer on the web these days. It has enough security holes that it allows any malicious
developer to format your hard drive using nothing more than a pop-up. And you know how rife those are.

Casimir Pulaski Day.

By Sufjan Stevens:

Golden rod and the 4-H stone
The things I brought you
When I found out you had cancer of the bone

Your father cried on the telephone
And he drove his car to the Navy yard
Just to prove that he was sorry

In the morning through the window shade
When the light pressed up against your shoulder blade
I could see what you were reading

Oh the glory that the lord has made
And the complications you could do without
When I kissed you on the mouth

The predatory wasp of the palisades is out to get us.

By Sufjan Stevens.

thinking outrageously i write in cursive
i hide in my bed with the lights on the floor
wearing three layers of coats and leg warmers
i see my own breath on the face of the door

oh i am not quite sleeping
oh i am fast in bed
there on the wall in the bedroom creeping
i see a wasp with her wings outstretched

north of sylvanna we swim in the palisades
i come out wearing my brothers red hat

Oasis Magazine: The world tour

I am in the process of hatching a very cunning plan.

Due to the nature of my work, I am travelling a lot these days, attending conferences and the like.
I have a conference in vancouver in february, followed by a conference in brussels the same month, and a wedding in antwerp two and a half weeks later.

I am trying to set it up so that I spend a week in vancouver, a week in san francisco, another week in vancouver and a week in brussels, followed by a week in london, and a week in some undetermined european country (possibly italy) and then a couple of days in antwerp.

Finally, I will own all of Buffy.

They are releasing the Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chosen Collection in 2 weeks time, which has every season in a single boxed set. I just pre-ordered it.

I already own seasons 1 and 7, but I am sure i will get someone to palm them off on. Now they just need to do the same with Angel.

i don't think i've smoked so much dope in my whole life....

Amsterdam was great fun. =)

My favorite part was where me and my good (straight) friend chad went to a live sex show (straight as well). It was very edumacational, but we should have held out for the BDSM one around the corner, which was bound to be more theatrical. Also. girl parts still do nothing for me. Vaginas are icky ™

What a crazy place, it's definitely first on my list of cities I'd like to grow old disgracefully in.

tossing and turning in bed at night...

I do the math, and realize I had 11 or 12 cups of coffee the day before.

Johannesburg - A glass bottle attack on a young woman in the Gay and Lesbian Pride march on Saturday in Johannesburg caused panic and pandemonium as blood pumped from her neck.

"I was standing on the float waving at people in the block of flats in Harrison Street when I saw something green coming towards us," said march participant Paula Coburn.

"I screamed 'They are throwing bottles at us' and then I saw this girl drop.

"Blood spurted from her neck and someone's 12-year-old daughter, who was on the float with us, jumped off and ran into the crowd screaming."

Sufjan Stevens

Sufjan Stevens is a man who is far too hot and talented to be both straight and religious.

Our people would welcome him with open legs, or arms, or something.

Find out if your neighbours are anti-gay activists.

From Boing Boing

Anti-gay activists who stood up to be counted are counted
Farhad sez, "Two activists in Massachusetts are planning to create an online database of all the 65,825 people who signed a recent petition calling for a ballot question to ban gay marriages in the state. The activists say that the online list -- which will include the names, street addresses, hometowns and ZIP codes of all the homophobes who signed -- will help gay people to determine if their friends and neighbors are secretly bigots."

Everything ends.

I just watched the last ever episode of six feet under.

It blew me away. I really love how they ended it, and I find I will actually miss the characters terribly. It made me almost cry =)
