I'd classify them as super-seinen characters, but that's probably not quite right.

Hi, all. If you're adding me, be aware that:

a.) I don't really add people with whom I don't have previous verifiable history.
b.) This is one of only two public posts that I have ever, or will ever do.
c.) The rest of my posts are for my peeps alone.

So, if you're following me, and it seems like I haven't been chatty, now you know why.

I am disappointed in Senator Al Franken. I wrote to him about it, and he supports SOPA. Details later. For now, chew on this.

This will be one of my rare public posts.

Not to go all Godwin or anything on y'all, but I kinda want to read up on what Germany was like just before it got all Hitlery. Because I'm seeing some crazy shit here in America, and I am seriously wondering about the sanity of my fellow citizen. I look at Rick Perry's ad and think back to my mom and her first girlfriend and their friends at Fort Belvoir, and how everybody knew they were gay and how seriously nobody gave a shit, and come on, this was Virginia back in the 1980's, what the fuck is wrong with you, dude. Not to say Virginia was a bastion of tolerance back in the 1980's, I'm just saying, is all.

I look at Michele Bachmann and see myself in that little kid who told her, "My mommy doesn't need fixing." We are regressing socially in a way that scares me, and I'm wondering if there's some concentrated actual effort to keep us hating and fearful and stupid, or if this is just the natural result of defunding the things that matter, and funding bullshit since pretty much the year I was born.

Who has a vested interest in a large, angry, uneducated, bigoted population? Who the fuck thinks that this American Christian Taliban shit is a Really Good Idea? Who the fuck are these people, and why are they richer and more powerful than me and mine, who are generally good people, just poor and maybe like to fuck their own gender, and are brown, or whatever?

How did these assholes get television cameras to follow them, and people to swallow their fresh steaming turds of words?

The problem with the US is that no one pays attention to the fact that middle america exists and so when those crazy Conservative bastards who can influence and change the way the country operates become super publicized it is hard to realize that they are to blame.

Basically there are 3 zealots who think Religion is the only thing that matters and it should continue to be the morality underpinning the foundation of our legal system to every 1 person who wants to make life better for everyone.

From what I have observed, it is the Religious prerogative to put a deity and its laws before everything else and to ensure that everyone adheres to those laws no matter how badly your chemistry says they don't matter.

It is all a form of social control aimed at ensuring that those who are too weak of mind to not act like the over sized and over educated animals that we are, have a fear of something beyond their control that will keep them from destroying us all.

I will gladly vote for the first President that says, "Well you know religion is not really my thing, people are my thing"

VIA TUMBLR: It’s proved impossible for me to get this shot of former Philadelphia Police Cpt. Ray Lewis being arrested, published anywhere. I was adamantly rebuffed by the Philadelphia Inquirer, NYT, local NY papers, and Newsweek, before even looking at the photograph. One of the only published photos of this paradoxical and intense event is located here at the NYC Observer:

I guess a "let them eat cake" party would've been too subtle?

You may get this message several times, please forgive me if it goes down like that.

Hi, I'm Glossolalia Black.

Some of you may know me IRL, in which case you know I'm /not/ Glossolalia Black. Some of you have known me on the Internet for years, yet haven't met me IRL, and I consider you my friends, too, especially if you've survived several migrations. That means we've most likely interacted in some meaningful way.

However, know this: I am not a naturally friendly person inside. I am quite wary, in fact. I don't like AIs, corporations, or anything without a discreet flesh and blood form (singular) of some sort. Meaning this - I won't friend you unless you are "real". You don't have to tell me your slave name, you don't have to show me an ID. But you can't be, say, a sockpuppet with a rotating cast of people behind it. I really don't trust those, even though most of the time /those/ assholes tend to be singular people, after all. Those are the people I try to avoid as a general rule. You feel me?

So, okay, some of you, I've never seen your real face and don't know your real name, but for some reason you feel comfortable out here in the Internets with it. That's ok, that's hardcore, I've done that too. Going on two decades out here in the Vasty tho, you learn to rein some shit in. So I don't do that as much anymore. But if you do, and all I know you as is "ConnieLingus@23skiddoo.whatever", I'm not going to recognize you. Which means I'll most likely block you. Because you haven't passed my own personal Voigt-Kampff and Turing tests. Get it?

So, if you "add" me here in G+, be prepared to introduce yourself first if you're not sure I recognize you.

If I end up not adding you, though, it might just be due to the fact that I know you personally and maybe don't like your POV. If that's the case, then just ask me next time we're together, and I'll most likely cop to hating your feed. Doesn't mean I don't like you as a person, though.

If you can't reach me in comments, email me.

Story
Tagline
The nicest unfriendly person you'll ever meet.
Introduction
"Writers are a dime a dozen in this town."

I wrote that line for the first time back in 1986, if that gives you any idea. I wrote in on paper, in a notebook, cross-legged on a rubber-sheeted bed behind cinderblock and Plexiglas, in a psychiatric juvenile prison in southern Virginia.

If you think that gives you any clue as to who I am today, I might argue with you. But I'd eventually concede.  Yes, that might have Something To Do With It.
Bragging rights
Lollapalooza 1991, Orlando. Glastonbury 2003. I survived both 1984 and 2001. Neither were as interesting as fiction would have you believe. Not in THAT way, anyway.

    God, if you're an employer, and you're just trying to dig up dirt on me, you can go ahead and remove me from your list of candidates. Unless you dig my points of view, in which case, you're welcome to see if my other qualifications (that I submitted quite nicely to you, on a resume, I assume, with my real name) make me a nice fit for your establishment.
