Don’t want no short short man
So Dongy over at Dong Resin's Joint (and no, I don't know him well enough to call him Dongy -- I'm kinda doing it to see if he'll come over here and grace me with one of his pithy comments) did this about the rash of pussified dudes that seem to have taken over the dating pool, and can I just say a big honkin' "Hallelujah brother!" to THAT.

I didn't realize this emo business has reached epidemic proportions, though; maybe that's because where I come from, that kind of pussy would get run out before he had a chance to infect others with his pussiness. I'd like to see the dude in the Observer article spend one day in a local bar out here, among the dudes who either just spent 12 hours in front of the blast furnace at USX or didn't because they got laid off two years ago. That'd be cool.

Speaking of cool, thanks to Chris for reminding me of how excellent Genesis' 1980 album Duke is. Brilliant stuff.

It is the job of a good person to be honest. To be self-aware. To deliberately explore the fault lines of your character and try desperately to not inflict suffering in this strange, ghost-ridden world of worked and fabricated objects. Sometimes the jobs of writer and good person coincide. But more often they don’t. There are way more writers in the world than there are good people.
