from an email i got from dennis kucinich:

Articles of Impeachment

Dear Friend:

Under circumstances that can best be described as "suspicious," the website was crippled early this morning a few hours after Congressman Dennis Kucinich introduced 35 extensively documented Articles of Impeachment against President George W. Bush.

Until we can restore the website and implement additional security measures, you can find the full list and detailed Articles at

If you would like to show your support for the Congressman's efforts, please go to to offer your comments and provide us with contact information so that we can continue to keep you informed.

Thank you
Committee to Re-Elect Congressman Kucinich

Paid for by the Re-Elect Congressman Kucinich Committee

so high so low

i had a ladies only modelfest here tonight and it was glorious, and then it was terrible, and now it is glorious again. after about 100 photos the nikon d70 camera started showing CHA and FOR instead of the number count, and i ejected and re-inserted the memory card and the battery between every photo and it was not really working and when i tried to view all them on the computer, the files turned into folders with nothing in them and the letters looked like they were written with wingdings. it looked like all was lost. hours of irreplaceable one-of-a-kind inspired beautiful hard work gone poof like that.

but then i went to and downloaded their software and they got my photos back! it's a middlemay miracle!

i'm not sure if it's something wrong with the memory card (sandisk ultra II, 1 month old) or with the camera.

yes, i love technology, but not as much as you, you see... but I STILL love technology... always and forever.

now it's past 5am, the roof of my mouth has been chopped by kettlecorn, ive gotten all the chocolate bits out of the trailmix, there are helmets and sombreros on my bed i think it's time to sleep.

green the country

from the recent vanity fair green issue article by Robert f. Kennedy, Jr. - "The Next President's First Task: Politics & Power"

The United States has far greater domestic energy resources than Iceland or Sweden does. We sit atop the second-largest geothermal resources in the world. The American Midwest is the Saudi Arabia of wind; indeed, North Dakota, Kansas, and Texas alone produce enough harnessable wind to meet all of the nation’s electricity demand. As for solar, according to a study in Scientific American, photovoltaic and solar-thermal installations across just 19 percent of the most barren desert land in the Southwest could supply nearly all of our nation’s electricity needs without any rooftop installation, even assuming every American owned a plug-in hybrid.

let's do this. free from oil asap.

voting controversy from the vintage vantage site

it's been 4 years since this all happened. this is right from the vv site:

It all started with Kat Storemski. The outspoken 21-year-old from Florida complained to MTV that our voting t-shirt was giving young people the wrong idea about voting. MTV News ran the story, and what followed can only be described as a media explosion. We were soon fielding early morning calls from the New York Times, the Washington Post, NPR - everybody wanted to know why we hated democracy so much.

Even Russell Simmons was talking poop. Then Harvard University chimed in and our shirts were banned from stores across the country.

Uhh, what?

Our favorite part was when Fox News came to our house to cover the story - while we didn't answer the door, we did let Holden and Nacho (dressed in voting t-shirts) out to play with our new friends. They got along great! Look, they're kissing!

When the dust cleared, we collected some of our favorite quotes on the subject - click here to check em out.

Our vicious attempt to poison the minds of young people.
But the story doesn't end there! With election day fast approaching, we posted an offer on this website - free voting t-shirts for anybody who promised to wear the shirt to the polls. The response was overwhelming, as the Camp Cool faithful proved once and for all that young people can appreciate irony and participate in the political process at the same time. Click below to see photos from the polls.

go out & vote this year, old people

tumor or not tumor?

the vet called with holden & nacho's blood tests & they're both "pretty much perfect" which is great but she's recommending surgery to take off holden's tumors.

she stuck a needle in them to test while we were at the office and said she's 99% positive they're benign.

the tumors have been there for about 4 years now, starting with one - the biggest golf ball looking one - now there are 4, all on holden's ribcage (cheetah chest) and don't get in his way.

they'd have to put him under for the surgery

he's 9 1/2 years old, which is like in his late 60's people years

it would cost $500-600, which really means $750

i don't want these to get to be the size of grapefruit & put stress on his other organs

if i wait much longer he'll be too old for surgery

but they're not cancerous and he's in great health and that's a lot of fucking money

anybody with tips, experience, advice, pointers, a rusty razor, let me know

holden votes "no"
