On the one hand, I'm excited to see "Lost" tonight...on the other hand, this is the last season and I don't want it to be over. WAH!!!!

Maybe this will cheer me up...

When you see this, quote LOST in your journal


Personal favorites, separated by character ) 

I'm sure I'll think of more later. Obviously some characters are more quotable than others regardless of what I think of them...

Guh. I'm looking at all sorts of lists of books that have been challenged by groups like The Committee of Parental Prudes With Nothing Better To Do Than Scour Books for Words Like "Damn" and I'm getting punchy. And stories about Sarah Palin threatening to fire a librarian for refusing to censor books (um, hi, that goes against everything a librarian stands for) aren't helping. Ergo, this week's theme is Censorship and Why It's a Bad Thing.

There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them. )

Guess Bush isn't the only GOP candidate with an open mouth connected to an empty head.

McCain also told ABC News, in an interview setting up his speech Thursday to accept the GOP's presidential nomination, that his running mate is capable in foreign policy matters in part because of geography.

"Alaska is right next to Russia," McCain said. "She understands that. Look, Senator Obama's never visited south of our border. I mean, please."

Is he serious? She has more capability in foreign policy because Alaska is next to Russia? Because Obama has never been to Mexico? Are we grasping at straws here? Why are we only focusing on countries in our immediate vicinity?

Gah. Five articles quoting speakers at the GOP convention and they all look the same. Typical Republican "let's scare the crap out of everybody so they'll vote for us" mentality.

"Killing one person is murder. Killing 100,000 is foreign policy."  ~Unknown (seen on bumper stickers and buttons)

"What's your favorite scary movie?"
"'Kazaam'! You know, the one where Shaquille O'Neal plays a genie."
"That's not a horror movie."
"Yeah, well, you've never seen Shaq act."  ~Scary Movie

"Son, this is a big day for you. Today, you become the man of the house, because when we get home your mother is going to kill me."  ~Family Guy

"And until we can see each other as equals, justice is never going to be even-handed. It will remain nothing more than a reflection of our own prejudices."  ~A Time to Kill

"Let's say there was a little girl, and from the time she could understand, she was taught to fear...let's say she was taught to fear daylight. She was taught that it was her enemy, that it would hurt her. And then one sunny day, you ask her to go outside and play and she won't. You can't be angry at her, can you?"  ~Great Expectations

"Films don't make psychos, they just make them more creative."  ~Scream

Lots more randomness under the cut... )

I said I was gonna do it, so here it goes. Do not read these while operating heavy machinery or while under the alcafluence of incohol.

"More and more of our imports come from overseas." (As opposed to outer space, I guess)

"I think if you know what you believe, it makes it a lot easier to answer questions. I can't answer your question."  (I think this one pretty much speaks for itself)

"If the terriers and bariffs are torn down, this economy will grow."  (Step away from the dogs, Mr. Bush...)

"We ought to make the pie higher."  (Okay, who gave him alcohol before a speech?)

Governor Bush: I talked to my little brother, Jeb - I haven't told this to many people. But he's the governor of - I shouldn't call him my little brother - my brother Jeb, the great governor of Texas.
Jim Lehrer: Florida.
Governor Bush: Florida. The state of the Florida.  (Wait, then who's the governor of the Texas? Oh, right...)

"I am mindful of the difference between the executive branch and the legislative branch. I assured all four of these leaders that I know the difference, and that difference is they pass the laws and I execute them."  (Sigh. Looks like we'll have to explain it again. Get out the sock puppets.)

"I can only speak to myself."  (I bet that's entertaining.)

Backlog part...4? Like I said, I've been doing this for years...

"The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers."  ~William Shakespeare

[personal profile] writerdot brought it to my attention that I forgot to change the journal default of "adults only content" on the quotes posts. Sorry about that. I'll try to remember from now on. However, I do have the memory of a 60 year old so if I slip again, just give me a holler.

Backlog part 2. 

"Some people say that I must be a horrible person, but that's not true. I have the heart of a young boy - in a jar on my desk."  ~Stephen King

"Every politician we have, liberal or conservative, who gets caught drinking and chasing women is thrown out of office. It's backwards. It's more dangerous to have a clean-living president with his finger on the button. He thinks he's going to heaven. You want to feel safe with a leader? Give me a guy who fights in bars and cheats on his wife. This is a man who wants to put off Judgment Day for as long as possible."  ~Larry Miller

"New research shows that the more sex a man has, the more he wants. Not only that, the research also shows the less sex a man has, the more he wants."  ~Conan O'Brien

"Respect women because they are wiser than men..."  ~Cary Grant

Just some random quotes from the "Coffee News" paper.

"Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding."  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

"I believe in the imagination. What I cannot see is infinitely more important than what I can see."  ~Duane Michals

"Love is temporary insanity curable by marriage."  ~Unknown

"The past is a guidepost, not a hitching post."  ~Unknown

ETA: Right...must learn to check the journal default on adult content. Sorry.
