tired

アルバイト macht ...

I've slacked off a bit on maintaining my spam blacklist, and have seen some spam recently. Some of these messages show up many times over the course of a week, and I've been wondering if they might have any effect on people like subliminal advertisements presumably do. One phrase, "Can you believe you are healthy?" popped into my head on last night's walk.. Even those who live off the (television) grid still have things to watch out for, I guess...

Recently I've been listening to Iris's "Everybody is Life" a lot (the seaside mix in particular) - it's almost meditative. I've also been enjoying the Leningrad Cowboys..

Amusement: Rushdie, in "The Satanic Verses", seems to comment on the storm the work made..

I find the arguments against Rushdie's honour sound kind of familiar to a recent Ynet article on a gay march in Jerusalem. Picking apart how tolerance/respect should workCollapse )

Some news stuffs:Collapse )

In theory I'm going climbing today. We'll see how well that works on the day after soccer.

Passion versus Thought

For people who are willing to talk about politics and have an opinion, I find it equally disappointing when people lack passion/willingness to strive for something better and different and when their passion is not matched with much thought. Passionate nonthinkers irk my logical side, and anti-idealists irk the side of me that cares.

Climbing today was ok. I seem to be in an antisocial-but-don't-notice-it mood today though.. I conclude this because I've said several things to people that seemed designed to mildly shock them.. Meh. If I could spot when I'm in moods like that and simply disappear or go for a walk instead of saying such things, I'd probably be better off. I guess noticing it is progress.
