Here's one of my favorite all time .sigs on the net, stolen from Ed Rock:

"When someone asks me if I surf the net, I reply,
'Hell, I'm one of the waves.'"--net.goddess Amanda Wolf a.k.a Batwoman

please tell me i'm not the only one who enjoyed watching michael moore get booed at the oscars. i'll admit... part of me actually liked "roger & me" but i don't think i could stomach "bowling for columbine". and i'm glad i'm not the only one who thinks he's an ignorant blowhard.

he's no peter o'toole.

and here's my list of people i never want to see in a cutaway shot at the oscars ever again:
- cameron diaz makes the list for playing with her hair
- ed harris, who looks like he's aged 10 years in 12 months
- nicholas cage, because, well, he's nicholas cage
- i'm gonna put jack nicholson on the list. i get sick of seeing the smirking jack with his sunglasses on
- i'm tempted to say no more cutaways of sean astin. please, could someone else from lord of the rings come to these award shows? somebody? anybody?

all in all, the awards went about as i thought. i figured chicago would take most of the big awards, and art awards, and lord of the rings would get the technical stuff. i guess i've come to the realization lotr will never win for best picture. i hope return of the king does. that would be fitting. it's an epic the likes of which i don't think we've ever seen.

oh yeah, forgot to mention... after two months of snowless winter, now we're transitioning into the rainless spring that is nebraska, circa 2003.

dang, we could use some moisture. apparently this drought is as bad, or worse than the drought of the '30s, but technology, better farming, and the general lack of connection to agrarian society has kinda kept it out of mind.
i know... i've been abset from here in a while. sorry. i promise i'll post more, although no one really reads. but that's ok. because 1) i probably just lied when i said i'd post more and 2) i don't care if anybody reads.

there's some strange stuff going down in this crazy world of ours. war, sure, but even close to home. the other day i covered a story on the news that was pretty strange. this average white couple, with a young child and another on the way woke up in the middle of the night, their house in flames. they looked outside, and someone spray painted swastikas and profanities on their house. and apparently they don't have any enemies, that they will admit to. that can't be the whole story, but that's the story the cops are going with too. strange, huh? who would torch some normal couple's home, and spray obscenities on it?

i've been reading stanley j grenz's _primer on postmodernism_

listening to:
evanescence _fallen_
u2 _best of 1990-2000_
some various remixes i burned from bt, moby, dj tiesto, delerium, etc
