Benazir Bhouto
slavezombie
I think I have her name spelled correctly. I had no idea she was a target for assassination. That goes to show you how informed I am on politics. How could anybody execute such a beauty?

She must've really broken some hearts to have karma bestow upon her such an awful demise. She was one political savvy bureaucrat that I would've truly enjoyed watching grow old, unlike some of the politicians in this country who must've been beaten with an ugly stick.

This morning I heard that David Letterman struck a deal with the WGA so that he could go back to work with his writers. The strike couldn't have happened at a most opportune moment. The tonight show seems to be effective in summarizing how the elections are going, but Dave is looking more and more like Ed Sullivan. Where's all the cool bands like CRADLE OF FILTH, MY DYING BRIDE, LAMB OF GOD, etc.?

I don't know about you, but since the assassination of Benazir Bhouto, I'm scared. I cannot understand the pointless carnage, especially when such a beautiful icon is the target. Did you see the way her followers just broke down in tears on TV? They must've loved her dearly. And the front page of the local newspaper here in LA had a photo of the aftermath, but I wasn't sure if it was the aftermath of the suicide bomber explosion, or the rioting.

There will be blood seems to be doing good at the box office, though it's currently only playing in one theater house, on two screens. Thinking today would be a slow day, I drove out there at 3pm and they were sold out for both showings. Later, I tried to buy a 7pm ticket on-line, but it was sold out.

I was surprised to see so many patrol cars on the street too. I almost felt as if I were being followed to Petco to pick up a bag of cat food. Either I'm not the only one who is expecting something big as a result of uprising half around the world, but I just learned that a raid on an anarchist show occurred a week ago in East L.A. I knew the mayor was determined to crack down on gangs, but now I'm not so sure it's safe to drive around on the streets. I fear terrorism, gang violence and police corruption. What a way to start out the new year.

Recall when there was such a big deal being made about Y2K in 1999, but nothing happened. Is it really that unbelievable that we might have our years crossed? If the big Y2K commotion everybody was preparing for was equivalent to the 2001 attack, why not just admit we're two years ahead of time? If we are living in the future, then dooms day never was going to occur on June 6, 2006. 8/8/8 is a nice round figure, but what about the Friday 13 conspiracy theory commemorating its 700 year anniversary? 2008 will only have one Friday the 13th and it falls on the month of June, but 2009 will have three of them, February, March and November.

Did you know...

...her last name can be used as a spanish language pun-slur,
as in,
Benaqi' Bhutto,
S'mujante Bhutto,
Mira'is-e Bhutto,
Noo-Seastan Bhutto, etc.

About her death, did you know that just a few hours upon landing in Pakistan from exile, a suicide bomber went off near her car as she left the airport (caught on tape)? or that Bush's private army of murderers in Iraq, Blackwater USA, was asked by Bhutto to provide her full security needs after the Paki. Prezie Musharraf refused** - and Blackwater said "no"?

note:
Blackwater has a global undefeated record:
it has never ever 'lost' a client it agreed to protect.

**as the retired godfather Don Corleone told
his son Michael, "whoever agrees to provide
protection for the meet, is the person one who's gonna try to kill you."

> Ven a ser puto

"Come be a gay whore."

And that's STILL not as funny as one day when a Filipino coworker went around the store frustratedly looking for some "..faahking tape! I need some faahking tape!" Everyone's like 'OMG, WTF?'

Packing tape.

& a happy gnu year to yew.

"Fry Day Doooodes!"

Last year 2K6 had it all:
October + 13 + and on a Friday = its 698th Anniversary.
For me it was a particularly weird, depressing, emotionally bipolar day, since:
-My grandma' had died, and
-was being buried that day (Fri 10/13),
-a great concert i was dying to go to (VNV Nation**),and
-weeks before i had agreed to meet w/my 3 Freemason
cousins to commemorate the day.


**after not going out for 7 months, i'd promised myself
since that June to see a few old friends for what i heard
was an incredible night of music and catching up w/friends;
what should've been a festive longed for reunion with
close friends i missed, it all went south - straight
to the earth's core - quickly: "mi abue" passed...........

I'm sorry that you lost a loved one last year. I'm sure there's going to be plenty of days for memorable catching up with your friends, but losing a loved one is never easy. I'm trying to stay alive until the next Haley's comet returns, so I quit smoking, drinking and whatever else shortens a person's life.

There IS a comet heading straight for Mars
with a 4% chance of hitting it:
THAT would make a great date night for some new couple lucky enought to watch it from the Griffindor Park ObservaTorre.

gracias. Happy New Year to you too.

That was a helpful link in that clarification of multiple versions being told by media and government can be put to rest. What a way to make the history books. That poor, beautiful lady will be missed.
