Three Cheers for Failure

Goddamn, one post in the entire month of October. That takes effort.


I wish I could say I was busy doing more important things than honing my writing skills and networking online, but truth of the matter is I really wasn’t. Sure there’s school but for whatever reason my course load is as academically rigorous as a Speak & Spell. Rather I’ve occupied myself with courting a boy (omg, I wish you the best, I’m so happy for you, etc etc) who, as it turns out wants nothing more than my friendship (aw, c’est la vie, fuck that asshole, etc etc). I’m a popular guy; everyone wants to be my friend.


Tuesday was sort of an election day across these great United States. Virginia got a raging hardon for the GOP, Michael Bloomberg got reelected by a narrow margin despite what the mainstream media called “intense distaste” for his running for a third term, and I forgot to vote. I wouldn’t have had time anyway (Tuesday was a bad day). But notably, and as far as I’m concerned expectedly, the good people of the great state of Maine voted to overturn a law giving same sex couples the right to marry (wtf, this is shocking, we’ll get them next time, etc etc). You know it’s a problem when the last couple words of that sentence start to sound routine. But again, I expected it. Yes it’s a New England state but typically when people hear those words they think liberal bastions like Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. Maine is kind of forgotten; it might as well be part of Canada. Maybe then they would have kept equality on the books.

However, in spite of all the bullshit, I saw Avenue Q last night and it was incredible.

i dont understand how gay rights got inculcated as a Human Right … it's definitely not a natural or civil right, so what, is it a political right then? something created out of the mainframe of current politics?

If someone out there called a black dude the N word, i believe the victim should be allowed to hold the offender in contempt…maybe even give him a beating

same would go to any infringement of a social, cultural, and economic right. So where does depriving a person from being a homosexual emanate? Could it come from the "freedom of expression"??? If so, can the rest of society freely express themselves without bounds? Where is the limit? Does the state draw the limit for freedom of expression or does society? It certainly doesn't seem to be society or there wouldn't be any gays around.

I believe a heterosexual should have the right to violently retaliate if a gay person hits on them. Gay people feel so happy to go around and throw glances and spark up queer conversations with Hetero males when they know the law protects them.

As I Canadian, I'll welcome any American state that wants in. If there's one thing Americans do that I am truly envious of, it's the patriotism. Canada lacks it, America breeds it. If only for a temporary basis, some Americans should come up here and teach Canadians how to be patriotic.

V, with that mug of yours you should be happy anyone hits on you. Seriously, if a stray dog rubs up against your leg you might want to think about buying it a drink.

Did you buy a thesaurus? Thing is, if you can't write to begin with, finding unusual word substitutions just adds more comedy to the mix…

Let's have lunch. I'll bring a few gay friends and you can wear the national uniform of Ecuador…fedora and poncho….and we can all have a nice civil conversation about freedom of choice and how the existence of homosexuals threatens your staunch moral fiber about as much as your inappropriate use of accessories threatens my fashion sense.

You can buy if it will help you feel like more of a man.

Oh, I see you've labeled me a "transgendered dominatrix" elsewhere. Does this mean I get to flail on you?…hold you in contempt?…retaliate violently for your incorrect assumption?

By your previous rationalizations, yes. By mine, no. I know who I am so it's of no great significance what you think of me.

You getting me? I'm calling you an insecure closet queen again.

PS, there's no such thing as a "natural right", it's all defined by humankind. You being Primordial ooze cannot possibly comprehend that yet, but maybe once your brain develops…

HAHA, "leslie" let me get this straight (no punt intended)

you post a comment at 8 46am and then another one at 9:38am…what, did you have to write a draft first? spell check? grammar check? try to summon up all your brain cells for a useless comment on my looks and my grammar? Ha, i am so proud of how i look and who i am i don't have to put a backshot of myself.

And as far as my spelling and grammar, bitch i can insult you in multiple languages and it doesn't take me 50 minutes to process it. You can comment on my page with a messenger or something, i would like to talk to you further rather than throw petty insults in another person's page

also, you're a lying dumb cunt leslie… shouldn't you be chilling with lenny kravitz right now? or making $25, 000 donationas? or hanging around your various houses in upstate and L.A., boy with someone who poses to have a celebrity status, you have certainly been monitoring us commoners well.

And i might consider meeting your little posie there, but please note that aside from my native brethren i chill with the most marginalized peeps in society which includes drug dealers, gangstaz, and the whole enchilada respectable to socially repressed individuals.if you think i'm mean then forget about these dudes

i know you love public discourse but if you wanna chit chat you know where to hit me, i feel ashamed of myself sometimes. sometimes i think "what would che guevara " say of my childish behavior.

i have to stop drinking too…need to preserve my brain cells for the great revolution.

Peace out homies

im sorry also one more than…are there any anthropologists, psychologists, or intuitive people out there to decipher what leslie is saying? read her comment:

that sounds like a man typing, not for the insults but the way it is written and it is expressed. i dont know, picture a female typing that and then a male. Either that or this "female" is fueled with testosterone.

thimscool youre a supposed anthropologist decipher the way leslies words are expressed. know about female-sepecific language, etc… and Woozie you're trigendered , just analyze for a second..

You should really stop drinking, mon ami.

And thimscool I'm accepting of his presidency but that doesn't mean I'm particularly fond of it. He doesn't seem to be fucking up like I was afraid he would back in January, but in my opinion he has not come close to living up to everyone's hopes™. Especially the gay community.

To implement the change he brayed about during the campaign would likely earn him a bullet. His vision is clouded by his own mortality. Your own Helen Thomas said on the ceeb earlier in the week that (paraphrase) "Barack has no stones". Sad, but true in the world's largest banana republic.

that sounds like a man typing, not for the insults but the way it is written and it is expressed.

Um, V, woman broke those chains of bondage many moons ago. Of course there are many rivers to cross (your attitudes being a glaring example), but come on, what century do you think you are dragging your sorry knuckles through? Free your mind or put a cap into it.

Good stuff, V…

I theorize that you're gay and you fantasize that I'm fueled by testosterone.

oooh a pack of student loan trippin stonerz and cop killaz i'm fookin terrified tear it up honey just make sure you get your badass self to class on time like a good little F-Train revolutionary

Well on some groundbreaking news, the house just passed a healthcare bill that will expand coverage to 96% of invidividuals regardless of income, class, etc

bravo, cuba has nationalized the healthcare system for almost 50 years now…and despite their poorer facilities, life expectancy in cuba equals that of the U.S., so what's happening to the other 4%?

Well i'm high tailing my arse out of here in two years before taxes are raised and i have to pay for American deadbeats … if i'm gonna be doing such a thing, i'll do it for my indigenous brethren back home

–sorry guys, i know i have been talking too much these days. It;s the hubris–

i would like to see Obama do something for the 2 million remaining native brothers of this land who have been exiled to the remotest areas and are living in worse conditions imaginable. They are the real minorities… i dont understand why hispanics and blacks are still considered a minorty

k, nite and VIVA la ReVolucion!!!

No worries V, i love listing to you talk. The cognitive dissonance your voice makes in my head is like a strong free south american drug injected strait through my DSL vein. You give me a catholic hard on that any incan would be proud to rub out.

BTW – NY is not the US – I don't believe in Race or the idiocy of ethnogenesis, but for those like you whom do, whitey is still king of north america.

Thimscool, please analyze!!

What more is there to say?

I've said before that V is a self-parody, and he's really quite good at it.

Just be careful, Leslie, because you know he ain't lying about hanging out with rock-hard gangsters! He's practically a soul mate with Billy and he's even got the respect of the Athletic Supporter.

Watch yo back, mkay?


V
said…

i love how all the white people here are all of a sudden ganging up on me, it really tells you something. And it's not like your insults are relevant to what i am saying. i thought someone would comment on my cuba/u.s. healthcare system, or even my first comment on law and society; instead i have been called dumb, ugly, bitch, cunt-fuck, a parody, gay, and something about giving someone a catholic hard on …HAHA

and for that person who said " I don't believe in Race or the idiocy of ethnogenesis" …what world are you living in? in job applications, surveys, college applications, studies, race for some reason is always in question… heck if you're a minorty wherever you are, a racial remark or a subtle differential treatment will intentionally or unintentionally bring to mind the divisiveness in society.

and that was wrong for leslie to say that black people are "cop shooters" and "stoners" … how racist was that comment DAMN…

psss, you guys are wack, i'm outta here

-V


thimscool
said…

Yeah, V, we all just got out of our KKK meetings and the first thing we do is come to the blog of a gay black dude so that we can pick on a South American gangsta wannabe.

I'm not opposed to having a rational discussion about nationalized health care, but frankly I don't think you're capable.

For example, you praise a national solution and in the same breath you disdain paying any taxes to help "deadbeats" unless they are from your own race. Then you imply that we're all a bunch of racist honkies.

Really dude, if you aren't a self-parody, then you must be hooked up to a CPAP machine loaded with nitrous. While you are barely coherent you just stumble from one contradiction to another.

Support indigenous rights! Vote Republican! Booyah.

You did not say your friends were black, you said they were gangstaz and drug dealers. To automatically assume I would make the leap from that info alone makes YOU the racist.

You should stick with BBC's blog. In that context, you're a genius.


V
said…

This will be my last comment ever here cause i am not getting anything out of here

sugar, honey, ice tea…but first LESLIE. We both live in NYC as you mentioned a while ago, and in my comment i was referring to the most marginalized people iin NYC of course, who else could they be…Whites? Asians? Blacks of course! and you stated something about me being an "F-train revolutionary" and we both know the F-train is synonymous with blacks cause it leads directly to the heartland of the black community: Jamaica, queens. I feel like a kindergarden teacher talking in baby steps for someone to understand, damn racist…yet nobody scolds her…blah, typical

and Thimscool, yes i am contradictory … back in my old blog i wrote an entry titled " U.S. Republican/Ecuadorean Socialist" it gave a point by point explanation to my ideals, beliefs, values, and principles. It made headlines in the blogging community, critics raved it "piquant, yet savory" .. Ecuadoreans gave it a two thumbs up Yankee ass. Liberals ignorantly heralded it as "the next best thing since ambiguity and contradiction took the name of flip flopping"

but all that i deleted in a drunken stupor. no point of explaining it, especially for some people who are insecure of their intelligence.

V, your profile used to say "Queens", hence my F-Train reference. I've been in Queens exactly once. No idea who lives there. My comment had nothing to do with skin color.

How are blacks the most marginalized people in NYC? You have no idea what marginalized is until you travel OUTSIDE of NYC.

You seem so desperate for an identity. Your "us against them" pack mentality only speaks to your immaturity.

haha , i'm sorry leslie has just shown how even more pathetic she is. I received a message reading "Blog open. Bring it." You know you have impacted someone's life when the other person has to go to great lengths and open a blog, make it public, and let its first post be an anti-immigration reform, or something like that, i didnt even care to read it.

i see the childish insults are dying and you guys are running out of things to say. Thimscool is barely hanging on. yes i'm 13 and im consuming nitrous oxide. nice try. people with below average intelligence are simply just name calling. and well, leslie has gone from writing paragraphs of garbage to just questioning, ha. She seems almost tamed.

i wonder how long leslie will keep that blog of hers she made especially for me if i dont respond. I feel so special.

this board has been dominated by yours trully, i would like to rename woozie's "three cheers of failure" to "OWNAGE"
