I think when I watched it first as a 12 year old, there must have been so much I didn’t understand.

And you know the first link to the piece on The Young Ones makes me want to watch that whole series all over again. I watched it for the first time as a young teenager when it was rerunning on MTV. To think of all of the political jokes and subtle jabs that probably went right over my head!

The orange went really well with the lavender ceiling, as you can imagine. (it was the 60s, and i had Peter Max sheets, too.) I had forgotten the beautiful male bodies!

I am so tired of meetings.

Right and left suck; the center is dead. After that a long semester is a relief.

We’ve had some rain for the farmers and to replenish the drinking water, we can put off winter a little longer if you ask me.

Ze writes, “Statements like [Ferguson's], however, are indicative of a broader trend. Austerity, as a policy issue, is increasingly characterized by a sexual politics that aims to depoliticize and legitimate arguments for anti-interventionist economic policies. Not only does this carry with it enormous consequences for the practice of scholarly inquiry, it also makes for a poor science of political economy.”

And I’m upset because that Ventura County Springs Fire burned my two most convenient hiking spots. Shame. Deep shame.)
