(In case you’re wondering who threw that snowball at Dick Cheney’s sweet ride, it was me, all the way from Wisconsin. I’m a snowball crack-shot when I’m furious.)
Get angry! Get frustrated! Then get over to Boycott Unity, and ironically laugh your troubles away. Stick figures tend to put biased political slap-fights into perspective, don’t they?
Here in Madison, Wisconsin, we’re in the process of accumulating anywhere from 4-12 inches of snow over the next few days. It’s times like this that I wish I worked out of my home, or was held up at home with a work-related injury, God willing. Anything to keep me in front of the fireplace, instead of scraping the ice off my Escort so I can risk my life in downtown Mad City.
It’s times like this that I wish I had my old car.
This was the biggest and best picture I could find. Apparently, 1987 Buick Somerset vehicles are a little rare in the auto world. Not only that, but my car could travel through time, as well. That being said, I can’t believe I sold it for $150. I could’ve made billions!
I guess I don’t want my car back, but I do wish I had that time in my life back. Not so much personally, but globally. Those few years before 9/11 were pretty decent, and the nation was more or less content with what was going on. Perhaps that was just my jaded-teenager view at the time, but I sure knew I was happier then when I watched the news, you know?
Speaking of the TV show “Cops“, they were supposed to film in Madison this spring, but the city said no at the last possible second. The reason they gave was the same as Celia’s. Madison is one of the safest cities in the nation, and they probably wouldn’t find anything interesting enough to air. Not only that, but if they DID find enough garbage to air, it would tarnish Madison’s reputation a bit. Well, there’s always Janesville and Milwaukee. I’m still mad, though.
If you don’t have “Soundtrack to a Midwestern Winter” by Big Big Furnace, I suggest you pick it up. Particularly if you’re currently in the middle of a Midwestern Winter. They were a band from Milwaukee that broke up a couple years ago, and they made the perfect emo concept album for freezing nights. It can get a tad cheesy at times, but it’s one of the best CD’s to ever come out of Wisconsin. If you find it at an exchange store, buy it.
This weekend, I plan on staying warm and snowed in. I’ll mill around the house, call my Mom, write a new batch of Boycott Unity cartoons, and pay all my bills again. This is the extent of my ambition when the snow starts to pile up.
I’ll be back this weekend with more interesting things to say. Seriously, I have many stories to tell. No more of this shoegazing boring crap for a while, It’s time to get down to business. Isn’t that right, Vlad the Impaler?
“You tell ’em, buddy!”
