I am very thankful for a family who is not afraid to let me know of my own contradictions, and who is also more than willing to understand what (I think) I am going through right now.|
It should not take a special day for me to realize these things, but holidays are usually the only time my whole family is home together. So maybe holidays do serve a purpose, intended or not.
I am also thankful for my good friends who call me randomly and make me sit there and smile like an idiot for hours just hearing their nice voices. One girl in particular. I love her so much. Maybe "too much for a gay man." Well. Whatever.
I seriously want to teleport there right now and give her the biggest hug. When I think about her, I lose track of everything that's going on around me; my mind goes numb. I know that's cheesy, but there could be bombs exploding outside and I would still be smiling if I was with her. Hmm well maybe. I dunno. I love her.

Today in hostory class, we watched powerful footage of Martin Luther King, Jr. being escorted by federal troops in Chicago 1966 during a large, public, white power rally (yes, WHITE power). It was pretty incredible to see the pure hatred on peoples' faces as they threw rocks at him and set off small bombs in the large crowd. Amazing how as one of the bombs would explode and make a large BANG noise, King (and the guards around him) would suddenly lower his head and keep walking.
So of course, after the class, I was thinking about how much more "progressive" America has been since that period of time in terms of civil rights and mainstream attitudes towards racial discrimination against colored people, and minorities in general.
I actually think about this a lot these days. Not just 'cause I'm part of probably the smallest minority in the US (Asian homos are not exactly a North American cash crop).
Have we really come that much further?
Its really tough to answer that question (keeping in mind the fact that there is obviously no right or wrong answer, but pure diversity in opinion), since I was born into a so-called "moderate" society, which is seemingly (on the outside, at least) much "better" than the way things were just 35 years ago.
Reason enough for us to be raised by TV, and be good little submissive, unquestioning, law-abiding, America-is-number-one, that's-the-way-things-are-so-deal-with-it citizens...right?
Urgh. I hope my sarcasm is understood...

Why do your eyes paralyze me
What makes me feel this way
Just carry me away with silence and heartbeats
As rapid thinking about your embrace
and how it makes me feel
I just want to feel this way forever
Sleep on portraits painted as perfect as you
Why have I been given the chance to fly
When I'm not with you I feel lesser alone
I remember your face / imprinted on angels
Your voice as beautiful / as the sounds of waves
crashing against my heart
Time slows down when you look at me
I'm infatuated with this / infatuated with you
It’s so hard for me to understand why
I hadn't found you before don't dull away
hold my hand
The music is heavy as fuck. Lots of screaming. But sit down and read the lyrics and there's all this beautiful imagery and stuff in it. Simple, yet it makes sense.

"Song and dance are, perhaps, only a little less old than man himself. It is with his music and dance, the recreation through art of the rhythms suggested by and implicit in the tempo of his life and cultural environment, that man purges his soul of the tensions of daily strife and maintains his harmony in the universe. In the increasingly mechanized, automated, cybernated environment of the modern world -- a cold, bodiless world of wheels, smooth plastic surfaces, tubes, pushbuttons, transistors, computers, jet propulsion, rockets to the moon, atomic energy -- man's need for affirmations of his biology has become that much more intense. He feels need for a clear definition of where his body ends and the machine begins, where man ends and the extensions of man begin."

I thought he dropped out of the class or something. But he was there today. It's like there was a fucking spotlight on him. It's like that every time. Beyond sexy.
And that class is so huge, there must be hundreds in there. But I can easily spot him every time. Pure beauty.
I was getting a little worried (even though he doesn't know who I am...sigh) 'cause he hasn't been in the discussion sessions the past few times. Well, not worried, but...you know what I mean.
I would usually be able to sit right behind him and drool in my mind the entire fucking time. My heart is beating faster just thinking about it.
Why did he suddenly sit in my row? And why did he sit in MY seat the next class? Is he trying to communicate something to me that I'm totally missing?
Maybe I'm just dreaming too much.
There was that one time when my parents came to class with me and I sat next to him. I was in a shitty mood that day though. Looking at him through the corner of my eye, and daydreaming about him looking at me when somebody across the room is saying something (which would, theoretically, mean that he would haveta look somewhere in my general direction)...that's what made me happy.
Yeah, I know I know. Stoopid and temporary. But maybe he was lookin at me...

And I guess "blogging" is an action in some sense, but I dunno. If I went up to the average joe on the street and asked them "how often do you blog?" they would probably look at me with the same look I give people who use those new headset cell phones. The "what the...?" look.
Sometimes I sit here typing something and I feel like a total cheeseball, and I wonder if people actually enjoy the stuff I write, or if they think I'm arrogant, if they wanna hump me, or whatever. That'd be kinda scary if people wanna hump me and I don't even know who they are...

I just read a couple blogs who criticized anyone who voted for Ralph Nader, saying we did Bush a big favor or some shit like that. Well lemme just say I voted for Nader and I am godfucking proud of it. Excuse me for voting my conscience and staying strong to my personal morals and beliefs, no matter who or what will be institutionally dictating our lives for the next four years (and beyond).|
And instead of blaming the people for voting for the "wrong" candidate, question the American electoral college voting system, which pretty much elected your president for you. Or wonder why the fuck so many people voted for Bush in the first place, instead of pointing the finger at the minority left-wingers for "spoiling" the election for the two major parties. Boo fucking hoo, your favorite capitalist whore wasn't elected.
I'm not saying I'm happy that Bush was elected or anything...by all means, I have more trust in a fucking piece of tree bark than in his dumb ass. But instead of just getting so pissed off about the elections, I say, put your money where your mouth is and get some grass roots organization going! I don't like the death penalty, so I go out and shout my ass off in public. I feel bad for kids who grow up without parents or family (not to sound condescending), so I am volunteering at local organizations to spend time with them. etc etc
I'm not trying to say I am better or smarter than anyone else. I know I have a LOT to learn. But I think this sorta community-based stuff has a tremendous impact on society on many levels-- including government. Of course, things may not change overnight, but I believe things can get better over time.

I'm not sure if Ernie is commending me or mocking me for that Vote Nader image below (the Joey Fatone one). Probably the latter. But I would probably make fun of me too.|
This blog said I'm "witty" and "obscure." haha awesome.
So Bush won the election. I'm scared.
I went downtown to protest Bush & the death penalty with a group of people, then we stood on one street corner near the big Bush thing and chanted some more. This small group of police officers formed a line in front of us (they were "protecting" us by facing us? there's something wrong with this picture), and most of them wouldn't talk at all. This one cop was silent...I tried talking to him but he just looked at me and kept his robotic, half frown. So I tried talking to this other cop, I asked him if he worked out and he said he had a gym at home.
So there's not really a point to me talking to cops, but whatever.
We stuck around in the huge crowd (estimated 20,000 people) for a long ass time waiting to see the results of the election, and it poured on us. I heard some "yee haw"s in the crowd as the rain attacked the crowd, and my hoodie got completely soaked. A wet hoodie and cold wind are not a good combination.

How Gore can Win by Michael Moore.|
A lot of people tell me "a vote for Nader is a vote for Bush" but I think that's ridiculous. This is what Moore said, which I completely agree with:
|"Yet, to say that 'a vote for Nader is a vote for Bush' implies that if we weren't voting for Nader we would be voting for Gore. That simply is not true. If Ralph were not on the ballot, I think most of us would vote for another third party candidate, write someone else in, or just stay home. That's how disgusted the millions of us are."|
"Disgusted" is the key word.
This year was the first time I'd ever voted (I'm 18) for anything, and before I heard about Ralph Nader, I didn't even have any motivation to register myself to vote in this state. I hate to sound so apathetic or whatever, but I read through Gore and Bush's campaign(s) and I was very unimpressed. I pretty much thought to myself, "why should I vote if the everyone running for president sucks?" Pointless, I guess you could say.
But then I heard about Nader and I almost immediately sent in my voter registration form. Finally, someone who appeared to have a lot of the same views as me about capitalism, the environment, basic human rights, etc. He actually motivated me not only to vote, but also to get more active in my community-- politically, socially, or something. I dunno, I guess he gave me some sense of hope.
And I seriously believe a lot more people would be the same way if they stopped giving in to this "a vote for Nader is a vote for Bush" bullshit. Even my dad, an extremely intelligent person, said this to me...then when I asked him about what he thought about Nader's campaign, he didn't even really know a lot about what Nader stands for.
Not that I'm smarter than him or anything (that's not even a contest), but I dunno...ignorance is bliss. Or something.

"The future will be better tomorrow."
"We're going to have the best educated American people in the world."

Actually, let's not.
The thing that really bugs me about this type of blatantly anti-queer legislation is the lawmakers AND the people themselves never give some sort of rational reason for why same-sex marriages should not be legal (hmm maybe it's 'cause there IS no just rationale behind it). What possible reason could they give without sounding like fucking idiots??
"Gay people are destroying our traditional family values and...it's just....gross when they kiss in public. It's so disgusting, and I don't want my kids to grow up seeing that."
I guess I'd be quiet, too.
I mean, I respect people who have traditional family values, but I think they must keep in mind that what other people decide to do with their love lives has nothing to do with them. Just 'cause two men or two women are getting married, that doesn't mean they're gonna live in your fucking house and have oral sex on your fucking Thanksgiving dinners. Open your minds, you greedy bastards. Sheesh.

George W. Bush has been arrested not one, but three times in the past. Surprise surprise!|
Also check out Michael Moore's open letters to Bush and Gore. Moore's kinda stubborn, but I believe he has good intentions. He makes some good points. Check it out for yourself.

Scot McLarty's Response to Rep. Barney Frank. Very interesting and well-written.|
Nader: “Yes. It's really interesting, gay people want to serve in the military, they want to engage in civil unions, or marriage, and they want to adopt kids. If they weren't gay, people would say, well, that's really good to do.”
Exactly!! Man. You go, Nader.
And the letter is signed, "Gonadally yours." haha awesome.

Oh yeah, I voted early today. I think I've made it pretty obvious who I think should be the President. Yeah baby.|
The Iranian guy who looks Italian (therefore I find him pretty fucking sexy) is growing a goatee again. Uh oh. Calm down, Ben.

hehe this is so awesome, my friend's 13-year old sister got her letter printed in the Chicago Tribune:|
|I am disgusted and appalled that in your article "Pick the President" [Oct. 17 Cover], you did not even include Ralph Nader and Pat Buchanan as candidates. Though they will most likely not win, third-party candidates carry an important message. How important is it to win an election if you can change America with your campaign?|
It was third-party candidates who first pushed to end slavery and give women the vote. Where would we be now without that?
I plan to vote radical as soon as legally possible. I am sure that I am not the only insulted reader.
How awesome is that? She really makes some good points...not bad for a 13 year old, huh?
I mean, geez, when I was 13, I was like sitting around feeling sorry myself, probably listening to Nirvana ('cause I so knew how Kurt felt, man...haha yeah right) and complaining about the kids at 7-11 who thought I couldn't speak English 'cause I'm a "fucking chink." Well guess what. I'm half-Korean, and surprise surprise: I speak English. My, oh my.
All I wanted was a fucking grape slurpee.
