thoughts: A couple weeks ago we were in downtown SF getting together with some friends and meeting new friends when I saw about fifty of these posters plastered up on the wall next to some ipod posters. They're totally out of context, so first it just kind of sets me back a bit, thinking "oh yeah, spooky, that's coming up."
And then I reflect on the idea that there are some totally touchy and nutty xtians (think friends of Ashcroft) who might actually take that date literally, and they have access to lots of power in America. The date itself doesn't scare me a whit, but what people might do as a result of it gives me pause. I hope they read my blog and get their relaxation on about it. That is all.
The good lord gave us the faculty of reason for a purpose. It may or may not be important that we find out what the purpose is, but it is important that we use it whether we know the purpose or not.
Link of the day: Viral marketing campaign for the new Omen sequel. What is up with all of these horror movies, that they're able to milk them for seemingly dozens of sequels?
