Phoenix

McFarlane

An interesting interview with the man.

He claims to own Image Comics. And Miracleman.

And the writer says he's not the Antichrist and the problem with comics ;)

Ooookay

The song I'm listening to is..strange. It's a Christmas/Solstice song.

Strange Song, cont.

I dredged up, and decided to post the lyrics, to show how odd this song is. I find I like it, strangely enough...

The Christians and the Pagans


Amber called her uncle, said "We're up here for the holiday,
Jane and I were having Solstice, now we need a place to stay."
And her Christ-loving uncle watched his wife hang Mary on a tree,
He watched his son hang candy canes all made with red dye number three.
He told his niece, "Its Christmas Eve, I know our life is not your style,"
She said, "Christmas is like Solstice, and we miss you and it's been awhile,"

So the Christians and the Pagans sat together at the table,
Finding faith and common ground the best that they were able,
And just before the meal was served, hands were held and prayers were said,
Sending hope for peace on earth to all their gods and goddesses.

The food was great, the tree plugged in, the meal had gone without a hitch,
Till Timmy turned to Amber and said, "Is it true that youre a wtich?"
His mom jumped up and said, "The pies are burning," and she hit the kitchen,
And it was Jane who spoke, she said, "Its true, your cousins not a Christian,"
"But we love trees, we love the snow, the friends we have, the world we share,
And you find magic from your God, and we find magic everywhere,"

So the Christians and the Pagans sat together at the table,
Finding faith and common ground the best that they were able,
And where does magic come from? I think magic's in the learning,
Cause now when Christians sit with Pagans only pumpkin pies are burning.

When Amber tried to do the dishes, her aunt said, "Really, no, dont bother."
Amber's uncle saw how Amber looked like Tim and like her father.
He thought about his brother, how they hadnt spoken in a year,
He thought he'd call him up and say, "Its Christmas and your daughter's here."
He thought of fathers, sons and brothers, so his own son tug his sleeve, saying,
"Can I be a Pagan?" Dad said, "Well discuss it when they leave."

So the Christians and the Pagans sat together at the table,
Finding faith and common ground the best that they were able,
Lighting trees in darkness, learning new ways from the old, and
Making sense of history and drawing warmth out of the cold.

Dew

A story.

Over in Claremont (I keep expecting the people to describe every action they take, but it never happens), I was thirsty, so went to the Pepsi machine to buy a Dew.

The machine wouldn't take my dollar. This wasn't a normal case of Whirrrwhirrrr, your dollar is shit, please try again. It wouldn't even grab the dollar so it could check it out and tell me it's shit, I figure some kind of busted mechanism.

So, I go to the Coke machine next to it, to get a Sprite (Yes, from Dew to Sprite. I am Dichotomy Incarnate). Hit the Sprite button, and it must've been sold out, as it spit back four quarters, and no soda.

Cool! So, I went BACK to the other machine, and got my Dew anyways. Faith manages =)

My Alignment

I took the test, I may as well give my results. (The description is excerpted from the D&D Player's Handbook)

Neutral Good

A neutral good character does the best that a good person can do. He is devoted to helping others. He works with kings and magistrates but does not feel beholden to them. The common phrase for neutral good is "true good." Neutral good is the best alignment you can be because it means doing what is good without bias toward or against order.
