I thought it was cute....

It WAS cute.  But sometimes, cute things need a good slapping, and Darth is the man for the job.

Poe is magnificent. I think I may have told this story before to youse guyses, but I will regail you with it, once again, if you will indulge me. Long ago, when Borders' Booksellers was still a store, and my wife and I would spend about 85 dollars a week there, not enough to keep them in business apparently, I thought I might give Anne Rice's vampire novels another try.

I slogged through the first book. It was well researched but dull as dishwater. But I lost all of them at some point. So, I set out to buy a compendium of Anne Rice shits. I looked in "Horror", no joy. I looked in "Romance", nothing, I looked in "Women's Studies", I looked everywhere.

Finally, I drift over to "Literature" where they keep all the great writing, Shakespeare, Hemingway, Dante, Mellville, and I see a complete collection of Edgar Allan Poe and right next to it is Anne Rice.

Anne Rice was in the literature section of the store. I pick up the Poe, and the Rice and walk up to the cash register. I say, all indignant like the crotchety old man that I am, "Son, why do you have Anne Rice in 'Literature', next to Edgar Allen Poe?"

The boy looked stricken like "Don't bother me..." and he said, "Yeah, I guess Poe should be in the 'Horror' section..."

I was like "NO! NO! Poe is one of the greatest American poets! Rice should be in the horror section! OR, a discount bin!"

He looked at me like... "Dude, I just work here..." And I laughed at myself, "I'll take them both..." I said and the poor guy behind the counter looked so sad that I had to say, "Don't mind me, son. I am a crazy old man..."

My wife said, "... he gets like this..."

I've read the Poe collection through several times.... still can't get through Rice's stuff...

So today the news had a segment on how to help your kids cope with the time change.

Oh the brutality of life, the hardships we face....  ::)

Life is hard. I was just telling some kids on the YouTube, that back in the day I would listen to (the song in question) over and over again, in the dark and I had to actually pick up the needle and reset it... in the dark! Back in the day was not for pussies!

LOL!

Very impressed with Matt Elliott / Ian Potter's "Scared to Death".

Well... what I could hear of it over shouting "be quiet" at both of my sons as they simultaneously riffed on top of the riffing of the movie.

That doesn't make sense...  But this is a random thoughts thread, so I'll chalk it up to that.  Still, politics has a place.  Not here.

I'd just prefer that not every post I put up turn to politics.  I have other interests.  I think that's understandable.  :)
