Today I:

1. Missed the 7:30 bus by approximately 30 seconds. I watched it pull away from the stop as I parked.

2. Took the later bus, which sat in traffic for 1.5 hours, instead of the normal 40 minutes the commute should take. Late to work. Of course.

3. Spilled my ice bucket all over the place in my rush to get my experiment going in the time I'd signed up for the tissue culture hood (9-11am; great except for how the traffic delay meant I got to work at 9:30 :|)

4. Fixed cells for 10 minutes too long because a fire alarm went off, requiring building evacuation. It was nothing, in the end, just a waste of time.

5. Sat through an excruciatingly boring seminar. My boss sat next to me, so I couldn't even sneak out when the speaker went well over the scheduled time limit.

6. Rode a stationary bike for 40 minutes tonight instead of running or doing something else more strenuous, because DAMN my quads are sore. The trial gym membership included a session with a trainer, so on Saturday I lifted weights and used muscle groups that apparently don't see much use when I jog. But I didn't realize how hard they'd been worked until Sunday, when I ran three miles and then cooled down and stretched. Post-shower I sat down and could not get back up. Getting older sucks, I don't recommend it. Also, getting lazy about daily exercise makes it worse. Self, DON'T DO THAT AGAIN.

6. Ranted for a full 10 minutes after receiving an email from my congressional rep (a member of the GOP) about Obama forcing the fiscal cliff and being unrealistic and assuring me that "House Republicans will continue to ensure that the power remains with the people." I was under the impression that the American people had already spoken. My impression was that the majority doesn't want Medicare/Medicaid/SS cut and are perfectly cool with the idea of letting the Shrub-era tax cuts for the wealthy expire. THAT'S WHY OBAMA WON AND THE MITT-BOT DIDN'T. It made me RAGE.

*deep breaths*

Right.

Now I'm gonna go ponder the next fest fic to be written.

Or maybe I'll do a meme:

Pick a trope from this list and provide a fandom/pairing and I’ll tell you something about the story I’d write for that combination (i.e. write a snippet from the story or write not!fic or tell you the title and summary for the story I would write).

1. space!AU
2. pretending to be married
3. mistletoe kiss
4. game night
5. handcuffed together
6. snowed-in
7. next-door neighbors AU
8. fantasy AU
9. day at the beach
10. celebratory kiss
11. apocalypse fic
12. sharing a bed
13. road trip
14. genderswap
15. kissing to save the day

+ The new washer has been installed. It's supposed to be more energy and water efficient, but it takes longer to do a load than the old standard. Whatever, I really appreciate not visiting the laundromat on a regular basis. The nearest one was pretty sketchy.

+ The Aeros played the first of a four-game home stand Sunday. They lost in a shoot-out, but that's better than I expected. They looked tired and flat in the first two periods, like the back-to-back-to-back with a seven-hour roadtrip in between had done them in. And apparently they called up another D-man from Allen? He dressed and warmed up with them, but was a healthy scratch (along with Granlund, Brodin, Scandella, and multiple other scratches D:). Also, holy crap, it's one thing to see in his stats that Baldwin, the guy they called up from Orlando on Saturday, is 6'5" and it is something else entirely to see him up close and personal. And that's not even talking about when he lays a hit on someone right at the glass. GIANT. Also giant? The brand new video screen scoreboard at the Toyota Center.

+ Early voting, accomplished! GO VOTE! I don't care who you vote for, just do it. (OK, that's a lie: I care. And if you are female and vote Romney/Ryan I don't understand at all, because one of the bases for their platform is about making people who were were born with a uterus second class citizens. But it's your vote. USE IT.)

+ After tomorrow, all the horrible adverts on TV and auto-dial phone calls and emails bombarding me with pleas for donations of time or money for political campaigns will stop. Or at least slow down until the next election cycle.

Originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] gabrielleabelle at Mississippi Personhood Amendment
Okay, so I don't usually do this, but this is an issue near and dear to me and this is getting very little no attention in the mainstream media.

Mississippi is voting on November 8th on whether to pass Amendment 26, the "Personhood Amendment". This amendment would grant fertilized eggs and fetuses personhood status.

Putting aside the contentious issue of abortion, this would effectively outlaw birth control and criminalize women who have miscarriages. This is not a good thing.

Jackson Women's Health Organization is the only place women can get abortions in the entire state, and they are trying to launch a grassroots movement against this amendment. This doesn't just apply to Mississippi, though, as Personhood USA, the group that introduced this amendment, is trying to introduce identical amendments in all 50 states.

What's more, in Mississippi, this amendment is expected to pass. It even has Mississippi Democrats, including the Attorney General, Jim Hood, backing it.

The reason I'm posting this here is because I made a meager donation to the Jackson Women's Health Organization this morning, and I received a personal email back hours later - on a Sunday - thanking me and noting that I'm one of the first "outside" people to contribute.

So if you sometimes pass on political action because you figure that enough other people will do something to make a difference, make an exception on this one. My RSS reader is near silent on this amendment. I only found out about it through a feminist blog. The mainstream media is not reporting on it.

If there is ever a time to donate or send a letter in protest, this would be it.

What to do?

- Read up on it. Wake Up, Mississippi is the home of the grassroots effort to fight this amendment. Daily Kos also has a thorough story on it.

- If you can afford it, you can donate at the site's link.

- You can contact the Democratic National Committee to see why more of our representatives aren't speaking out against this.

- Like this Facebook page to help spread awareness.

I have opinions about the news that's in the headlines, but all I'm going to say is that I hope that everyone who lost a loved one on 9/11/01 or when the USS Cole or the US embassies in Tanzania and Kenya were bombed feels some closure. I'd like to believe that this means we'll extract ourselves from the untenable, unsustainable military conflicts in which we embroiled ourselves in the name of capturing OBL, but I have sincere doubts on that subject.

IN HAPPIER NEWS. [livejournal.com profile] pjvilar posted a picture that makes me FINALLY feel the urge to write, for the first time in months. If I can squeeze it in around my work hours, which have once again grown to encompass far more than the 40 for which I am paid.

AND. Seriously, did we magick Panic! At The Disco into being with our will, bandom? Because this video. SERIOUSLY. It's a half-dozen different musicals and Disney movies for a single 3-minute song, and I LOVE IT. I cannot wait for June. Or for the autumn tour with Black Cards and Neon Trees.

3. Lollapalooza's full lineup has been announced! In addition to Muse & Foo Fighters being headliners, PStump, Gold Motel, Smith Westerns, Ellie Goulding, Fitz & the Tantrums, Best Coast, Explosions in the Sky, and and and.... :) <- me

4. Petraeus to CIA? Uh. Really? I mean, I get the other shifts: Panetta to DoD to ease them into budget cuts that Gates alluded to. Allen to ISAF makes sense. Ditto Crocker to Afghanistan. But seriously, what's the payout of bringing Petraeus to the CIA, other than, you know, getting him out of Afghanistan? He's not political. He's never been political, at least in terms of electoral politics. I don't think he'd voice any complaints or make any endorsements in the upcoming re-election campaign, so why the shift?

5. The third round of Rolling Stone's cover contest is underway. Empires made it through! So did Fictionist, who I didn't know before the contest, but am now quite enjoying. Go vote!
asimplechord: (tell us how you really feel)
Deliberately not talking/thinking/posting about work. It'll make me too cranky. Instead, here. Have some random babbling and a few songs.

So, I've flailed all over the place (mostly twitter, but also here some, obvsly) about PStump and Discos, but I haven't really talked about Rise Against's new album, Endgame, even though it came out almost a month ago. Why oh why aren't they coming to Houston? The only TX dates on this tour - with BAD RELIGION! - are midweek dates in Austin and Corpus Christi. Which, you know, I'll go to at least one of. But anyway.

I love it. I love the music, and I love that every song hits on an issue near and dear to my heart. I was thinking about this earlier, b/c on one hand it's good that there was a compromise to keep the federal government running, but the cuts being made and the tax code that's been signed into law are just widening the gap between the haves and the have-nots in the US, not just in terms of income, but in terms of social benefits and opportunities. I feel like a lot of people of my generation and younger are disaffected: we keep trying and nothing changes. And nothing I see in mainstream media speaks to me on this issue.

But maybe other forms of media pick up the slack? IDK, I go back and forth on this, wondering if the US can have anything approaching the "facebook/twitter revolution"s of north Africa/the middle east. So many people were galvanized by the 2008 elections, but I wonder if the last couple of years have dulled their enthusiasm.

So I open the PDF/liner for the download of Endgame, & see that Rise Against suggest that their fans read Naomi Klein's Shock Doctrine (I have some issues with Klein, but not with this book), and watch Capitalism: A Love Story and Collapse. They used to suggest Zinn's Peoples' History.

They close with Steinbeck's When property accumulates in too few hands it is taken away.[...]

This band could not resonate any more in my ears and brain and soul if they were aiming directly, deliberately AT ME.

Here. Their Architects, along with I Was A Teenage Anarchist by Against Me! (no, really, one is a response to the other) and RATM's cover of Ghost of Tom Joad.

Have y'all been watching the situation in Wisconsin?

Go, Red.

I was a member of the UW TAA, the Teaching Assistants' Association, when I was a grad student. Generally the Chemistry Department treated its TAs well, but that was not the case university-wide, and with the TAA's help and collective bargaining, we had the best health care I have ever had. Ever. (I have since worked exclusively in medical schools that are physically located in or contiguous with a teaching hospital, so that's pretty sad.) We were also able to have tuition waived as part of our salaries, paltry though they were, rather than having additional monies removed after taxes. Honestly, I have no idea how I was able to pay my rent when I look at my tax records from my first year, where we had to pay tuition out of our $12k/year pre-tax salary. I remember some months where my take-home pay was $545, and my rent was $425. The rest had to cover all utilities, food, and other needs for the month.

Teaching assistants and research associates couldn't have done that without the TAA. Individual students and departments wouldn't've have had enough leverage with the university. Fair pay for fair work, with some social benefits. That didn't seem like too much to ask.

It is my understanding that at this point, the unions have agreed to many of the salary and benefits restrictions that Walker has demanded. The only reason for him to continue to force this issue is to deny public workers the possibility of collective bargaining, to break the unions.

I've heard the argument that public employees are getting health care and salary on the public dime. But the amount of money a public defender or a public school teacher makes in comparison to what they could make in private practice is a pittance. These are the people teaching and taking care of (y)our children for 8 hours a day, responding to health emergencies, making sure (y)our streets are clean. Surely they deserve the ability to negotiate as a group for issues relating to compensation and work-place environment conditions.

1. I thought more than once about extending my visit to NYC when I got the NDP notice and then the pre-sale code for the Discos' show at the Bowery, but I seriously cannot spend that time off without consequences - the day and a half I'm taking are being made up by working MLK Jr Day and the thirteen hours I spent in lab on Tuesday. (As an aside, J is going to be in town that weekend too. Cling-time! :D :D :D)

2. New post-doc arrived. SO TIRED OF ANSWERING QUESTIONS. It would be okay if it were just her, but I have literally spent hours the last three days showing other people how to do things. It's not like I have, you know, shit of my own to do.

3. I keep thinking about writing something, anything, but by the time I get home from work, I can't be bothered to think straight.

4. Almost through S2 of The West Wing. It's funny in a sad way how a decade after these episodes aired, NONE of the issues they confront have altered significantly. (And I still love CJ like burning.) [ETA: The more I watch, the less I care for Bartlet. To me he comes off as a predictable, pompous ass who relies on a bottomless well of useless trivia, his own opinion, and the bible more than anything else.]

5. Rise Against's new album comes out the same week as GD's Awesome As Fuck? Good music week. Actually, I think that's the week of SXSW, so it'll be a FABULOUS music week. :D :D :D (Also, did I ever flail here about Another Station; Another Mile? My heart eyes over them, I can't even explain.)

6. I was earwormed today by Wisdom, Justice, and Love. First when Tavis Smiley & Amy Goodman got into it on Democracy Now this morning (and wasn't that a total lovefest?) and then when my iPod kept cycling through A Thousand Suns. [There was a thought somewhere about violent political rhetoric and the long war and the political assassinations of the 60s, but I'm too tired to connect the dots now.]

7. A reminder from J had me all excited: the new Mercy Gunderson novel is out! And Amazon said that my copy had been delivered. But there is no package on my doorstep, in my mailbox, or in my neighbor's house. The USPS is not being particularly helpful at the moment, but I suppose that's because it's after hours. *sigh* I guess I'll keep slogging through Aftermath and Learning To Eat Soup With A Knife in the meantime.

8. Fuck yes! (PLEASE, BILL WHITE, RUN FOR HER SEAT.)

+ I remain fascinated by word/phrase usage in spin, and the way even supposedly neutral media outlets like Yahoo slant political news: Bipartisan bill preventing big tax hikes heads to Obama today. As if these would be *new* taxes, not the end of the Shrub-sponsored crap that took the US from a budget surplus to a budget deficit, and also as if it weren't *increasing* taxes for the very lowest incomes while maintaining significant benefits for the wealthiest 1% of Americans

1. I feel like I've lost my porn-fu. Ugh, it took me FOREVER to write some comment-fic porn, and I can't tell if it's because it's a pairing I've never written before or if I'm getting stuck on mechanics and description. (Please note that I have not written any more of my exchange fic. My brain's squarely focused on things that have no deadline and/or are complete crack. Like the porn that would go with item #12 of the girl!Brad not!fic.)

2. Last night's show at Fitzgerald's was stellar. I appreciate Amanda Palmer's solo work, but her + Brian Viglione = so fucking much more energy. It's not multiplicative or additive, it's exponential. They were on stage for 2.5 incredible hours. Coin-Operated Boy, Gravity, the Jeep Song, Missed Me, all that stuff, with the bonus of a performance of War Pigs as the finale. ***That's not video of last night - I didn't have my camera, and no-one's uploaded it, that I can find.

Every time AFP's internet hubbub annoys me and I tell myself I'm not going to bother with her or DD again, I remember how fantastic the live shows are, and remain willing to pay the venue's entry fee.

(Girl In A Coma opened. Ungh, Nina Diaz. Your VOICE. Especially on the cover of For What It's Worth.)

3. Totally unrelated to music or fiction. Sort of. Nir Rosen debated Max Boot on Fareed Zakaria's GPS this morning. It was painful to watch, because clearly neither could or would concede any ground, and if you believe the thinkers at CFR, well, I guess I have to ask if you've drunk the Kool-Aid. But on a purely visual level, I was interested in the contrast between them: Boot in his suit and shorn hair seated at an angle to Rosen, who was wearing jeans and a casual shirt and jacket, if I recall correctly, and a pair of Chucks.

The syllabus for Stanley McChrystal's graduate seminar at Yale has been released.

It includes:

2nd November 2010: “Loyalty, Trust and Relationships”
16th November 2010: “Communicating the Story – the Media Environment”

Note that *nowhere* in the reading material is the Hastings article. Which, IDK, could be a PRIME EXAMPLE for tying together those three lectures, don't you think?

In fact, I'm pretty amused that one of the primary references is an article that was a pretty fucking shiny piece of PR for him.

3. :D Books! Chalmers Johnson's new book should arrive on my doorstep tomorrow! It's a follow up to the trilogy about blowback and American empire. Along with it, I'm expecting The Fourth Star. I suppose I should hop to, and finish reading Washington Rules instead of messing about with Inception fanfic, right?

4. The thing that bothers me most about the uproar over Cordoba House is that the people who object most strenuously to a mosque at Ground Zero are the same people who will wave a copy of the Constitution and Bill of Rights in defense of the right to bear arms; somehow they forget that the First Amendment of that very same document guarantees the right to religious freedom. Or, IDK, they stop being strict constructionists and say that the founders didn't mean it the way we're interpreting it. (I sincerely doubt that, since James Madison was part of Jefferson's cohort, and as has been quoted pretty much everywhere lately, TJ's the one who wrote that "it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.") The First Amendment also guarantees that if a mosque is built there, haters can protest it to their hearts' content. But still. Muslims have EVERY RIGHT to build a mosque there. Beyond that, I don't see why someone who is not a resident of the area thinks they should have any say in the matter. Who gives a shit what Sarah Palin thinks? Why is Newt Gingrich's opinion important? Do they live there? Are they family members of those who died? Did they suffer when the towers fell? How is their objection relevant in any way?

ETA: ♥ Jon Stewart & John Oliver on this topic. /ETA


5. Also on the political level: hmmm, Stan McChrystal. I can't help but compare a possible political future for him to Petraeus, who vowed once again that he would not go into politics in his interview with David Gregory this weekend. (I was tickled by Gregory's use of Grant and Grant's quotes re: going into politics to broach the subject, esp. since Petraeus has spent a great deal of time reading/studying Grant.)

6. My mom forwarded the address of a cousin who is deployed in Iraq, with the suggestion that he might like to receive some mail. I honestly have NO IDEA what to write. This is a cousin I haven't seen in at least five years, and saw infrequently for the decade before that. I can babble about random stuff, I suppose, but is a guy who's been deployed for over a year really going to give a shit about daily life and family events in the 'burbs, especially for the cousin that he probably only vaguely remembers as being a babysitter and homework-aid when he was a kid?

2. It is really hard to focus on science when I want to be writing out the porn that's on repeat in my head. Just sayin'.

3. Appropriate timing: I just read the exchange between Abizaid and Mattis to which Ricks refers here in No True Glory.

4. BRB, laughing at the little coincidences in life. I read one of the tabs I have open, a [livejournal.com profile] combat_jack GKbattle fic for the "fog of war" prompt, last night before going to bed, and then I checked my googlefeed first thing this morning and found an op-ed piece by Andrew Exum in the NYT, Getting Lost In Afghanistan's Fog Of War. Fandom and news media converge once again. (Exum is inevitably tied to Fick in my brain, even though he has absolutely nothing to do with Generation Kill.
