Today's Fanservice

Well, we haven't done one of these fanservice posts for a long time, so here's Jordan Carver, possessor of one of the best sets of fake breasts I've ever seen.


In the last few months, yelena_r0ssini has checked my LJ a few times. I have to admit that every time she does this, I entertain a faint hope that she will either comment or message me in some tentative yet positive way. I always have a faint hope that she will attempt to re-establish communications, perhaps apologize, perhaps just ask politely how I'm doing, try to bury the hatchet, make some small, tentative step towards being friends again. Aside from etcet, she was the first LJ Friend I had. She was more than an LJ Friend, she was a confidante. At one time, I cared for her very much.

It may have ended badly, but hope springs eternal. I always think, "Maybe this time, she'll say, I'm sorry for all the things I said, and I hope you're sorry too, and I hope we don't have to be enemies anymore." It is a dream I have. I try to believe the best in people.

McCabe & Mrs. Miller: Name Your Poison

"All you've cost me so far is money and pain. . . . Pain, pain, pain . . . "

This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

"As to my drinking, this is indefensible. And you have my abject apologies. I find of late that I have very little choice in the matter of expressing emotions. I can either drink, or I can weep. And drinking is so much more subtle."

In "Demolition Man," criminals aren't supposed to be aware of the time spent in cryosleep. But John Spartan spent the time dreaming of the innocents that he didn't save . . .

Today's List

My favorite three questions are
  1. What do I want?
  2. What do I have? and
  3. How can I best use the latter to get the former?

How To Help People

A TED Talk on aid to African countries, from Ernesto Sirolli:

This video also has wider applications. Listen to people whom you are trying to help. Let them come to you. Don't be patronizing. Let them tell you what is important to them and what they need.

Today's Video

Not my usual kind of music, but it was recommended to raise my spirits.


Abuse, pro-suicide comments, tough love, discussion of suicide methods, religious proselytizing, trolling or incitement to self harm will get you fucking banned. I'm looking at you, farchivist. I am really not in the mood for you and those like you today.

Today's Quote / Dyson

"Do you see what comes of all this running around, Mr. Bond? All this jumping and fighting, it's exhausting!"

"I . . . DON'T . . . KNOW . . . HOW . . . MUCH . . . LONGER . . . I CAN . . . HOLD THIS. . . . "
