. The important stuff is locked.
. If I know you in real life, chances are I won't add you here. Nothing personal.
. I'm all for making new friends, but it'd be nice if we had something in common.
. Please comment and let me know who you are - failure to do so means I probably won't add you back.

I've become somewhat a fan of NASCAR.

And after looking at thisCollapse )

...you'll probably become a fan as well. Go ahead, resist - I dare you.

That is all.

I said I'd never let you go, and I never did
I said I'd never let you fall, and I always meant it
If you didn't have this chance then I never did
You'll always find me right there, again

This might be super creepy, but I am in love with a dead man. And he's not like, dead man from five years ago. He's a dead man from the 1920's - Rudolph Valentino.

In my defense, if TCM hadn't aired Beyond the Rocks, I never would've found him.

Seriously, I'm enamored.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, angrymobjustice sent to me...
Twelve airplanes drumming
Eleven piercings piping
Ten zombies a-leaping
Nine tattoos dancing
Eight cartoons a-milking
Seven icons a-swimming
Six politics a-laying
Five ci-i-i-ity lights
Four serious talks
Three empty highways
Two long drives
...and a color in an emotional irrationality.
Get your own Twelve Days:


btw, working at Sunglass Hut (even if it's once a month) is totally paying off. Hello Ralph Lauren sunglasses that were originally priced $70, for which I paid $28!! Win.

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

Last Tuesday I gave pen_of_jen a kidney (1000 points). In March I pulled illuminated_sin 's hair (-5 points). Last Sunday I didn't flush (-1 points). In August I helped sugarplumkate see the light (8 points). In April I set montmorency 's puppy on fire (-66 points).

Overall, I've been nice (936 points). For Christmas I deserve an Easy-Bake Oven!

Sincerely,
angrymobjustice

Write your letter to Santa! Enter your LJ username:


Hm, better than my last Christmas list.

fyi: it's a real poster; it was actually utilized during a promotional event and displayed to the general public.

Awesome.


ps: I still hate the new profile layout, livejournal. Just in case the 5,000+ comments weren't feedback enough.

I just got this exciting urge to go out and take pictures. As soon as my sister gets home from school, I'm outta here! If I get anything good I'll post it later!

Toodles!

EDIT: Nothing good. All my old haunts in Prescott have been renovated so they don't hold that noir feeling anymore. I went into Jerome but by the time I got there the sun had gone down so there was really no point.

I was planning on staying away from LJ for most the night and just kind of keeping to myself, but in light of the milestone that has just taken place in my country, I feel the need to express how utterly ecstatic I am!

As I watch Barack Obama deliver is victory speech in Chicago, I can't help but feel so completely overwhelmed by how loud our country spoke today. People of all social, physical, economical, political, and racial backgrounds got out and made a difference. In the largest voter turnout our country has ever seen, history has been firmly made - Barack Obama has been elected the 44th and first African American President of the United States of America. I've always been proud of my country; I've never wished that I was anything but American. But for the first time in a long time, I have faith in my country. I have faith that change has arrived. I know that this victory is not the ultimate change we seek, but the beginning of an uphill battle to reform and rebuild a national unity and heal the divides that hold back our progress. It won't be easy, and I know that the government will not fix all our problems. But I remain hopeful in the fact that my voice was not only heard tonight, but listened to.


"It's been a long time coming, but...change has come to America."

Excerpt from the book God's Problem: How the Bible Fails to Answer Our Most Important Question - Why We Suffer:


A former NASA rocket engineer named Edgar Whisenant had written a book in which he claimed that Jesus would soon return to the Earth and take his followers out of the world (the so-called rapture), leading to the rise of the Antichrist and the coming of the end. The book was entitled, cleverly enough, Eighty-eight Reasons Why the Rapture Will Occur in 1988.

There is no point in recounting all of Whisenant's eighty-eight reasons here, but I can mention one. In the Gospel of Mathew, Jesus explains to his disciples what will happen at the end of the age, and they want to know when it will happen. Jesus tells them "From the fig tree, learn this lesson. As soon as its branch becomes tender and it puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So also you, when you see all these things, should know that he is near, at the very gates. Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away before all these things take place." (Matt. 24:32-34)

But what does all this mean? In his book, Whisenant points out that in Scripture the "fig tree" is often an image of the nation Israel. And what does it mean for the fig tree to "put forth its leaves"? This is referring to what happens every spring: the tree has lain dormant over the winter, as if dead, and then buds appear. When does that happen to Israel? When does Israel come back to life? When it is restored to the promised land and once again, after lying dormant for so long, becomes a sovereign nation. And when did that happen? In 1948, when Israel became a country once again. "This generation will not pass away before all these things take place." How long is a generation in the Bible? Forty years. And so there it is: add forty years to the year 1948 and that brings us to 1988.

Whisenant was convinced on the basis of this prophecy - and eighty-seven others - that the end of the world as we know it was going to occur in September of 1988...


Know what else happened in September of 1988? I was born.

;)
