spam of the week

"Earn a Professional Certification in Crime" from Kaplan College Online. I can't decide if I want to major in robbing banks or embezzling funds. somehow the latter strikes me as less dangerous and possibly more lucrative.

well hello

Gorecki is giving me goosebumps.

I know it is a source of endless amusement for some of you that since going on testosterone my body has decided that the best way to exhibit any kind of emotion whatsoever is to break out into goosebumps. although I suspect that part of that amusement is at what sort of event I break out in goosebumps to, such as the Giants winning the National League Pennant or something equally unworthy of real emotion.

but so what is happening now is that I am painfully wringing out this chapter from my brain and fingers and listening to Gorecki and it is all giving me goosebumps not because I think I'm saying anything terribly profound but rather because the feeling of writer's elation at both flow and music to accompany it is something I haven't experienced for a very long time. I'd say the last time it happened was probably 1997 or so.

I think I might cry.

or break out into bigger goosebumps.

logan trips and falls

what is it with me and movies. I drink beer and I can't follow them.

the plot of logan's run escaped me this evening although I did get that there was quite a heavy nostalgia for some conflated version of nature and the heterosexual nuclear family and america which made me a little ill. that and sanctuary did not really exist outside of this nostalgia.

really someone has to come up with better alternatives.
