Back From the Lake

Christ, I keep finding myself in this dilemma; so much to write about and not enough time to do it. The life of a family man is hard (but rewarding), time is tight, and a silly, navel-gazing indulgence like blogging is the last thing on the "to do" list. So for now I'm going to give up on creating a coherent narrative and hit y'all off with some bullet points.

-The Dark Knight


I finally got to see this a month late. As of right now, the best superhero movie I've ever seen. There are some haters out there, but they can eat a dick. If I had any say in the matter, I would let this version of Batman marinate for 10-15 years and do a straight up adaptation of the "The Dark Knight Returns". To set the stage, have whoever the best comic book fan/movie maker of the day is do a 30-40 minute uncensored, untouched by studio hands (but with studio budget) viral video 2-3 years ahead of time.

- Thoughts About the Lake


I had a blast. BabyRat was able to run buckwild for eight days with a bunch of her cousins; I loved see her able to play and be free without a bunch of restrictions. There was a playground about 50 feet from our cabin and a couple of 9-10 year old cousins who were only too happy to be left in charge of a posse of kids. We were able to go swimming, boating, and fishing just about every day and while you're at the lake you don't have to sweat bedtime and shit too much either.

WifeRat was relaxed and happy because BabyRat was happy, and of course I was happy because they were happy. The fact that I probably drank close to a hundred beers and liter of bourbon over the course of the week may have contributed to that happiness. The beauty part of the setup was you really only had to be on your game a total of less than two days over the course of eight days. This probably sounds really bad to someone reading this, but I was sober when I needed to be. Don't be a judgmental prick.

My New Favorite Blogger?


With apologies to my man Ta-Nehisi Coates - the only blogger that's ever given me any shine. Check his blogroll, Woot! - is there anyone who's ass Ken Silverstein isn't scorching these days? The Democratic National Convention? Check. The Taliban/Al Quaeda? Check. Obama? Check. GOP? Check. Mainstream media? Check. Not only is this guy bringing the heat all around the political dial, he's also telling stories and giving analysis you just don't really hear about world events.

I heard this guy on mad lefty radio station WPFW, but what impressed me the most was that in the ten minutes I heard him talking he very and forthrightly copped to his own predjudices and how they affect his work. It was the kind of honesty that you don't typically get from say, someone like David Broder of the Washington Post.

Flame on my friend, flame on!!
