merika, fuck yeah!

[P]eople [are] celebrating a distant history and their lineage ... that has nothing to do with celebrating America, and I find that astonishing. Frankly, I resent those kinds of holidays." Dobbs continued: "[T]his is a country that is so focused on the differences among our 300 million citizens, we don't celebrate enough our commonality, our similarities, our bond. And I become very sensitive to this."

That's CNN's favorite xenophobic ratings whore Lou Dobbs explaining why celebrating St. Patrick's Day is un-American. I wonder if Lou knows that today is Tartan Day, a holiday devoted to Scottish heritage which was commissioned by the US Senate in 1998.

Today I will be celebrating my complete lack of Scottish heritage by putting on a kilt, drinking Scotch Ale and dancing a jig while watching a Sean Connery film. I'll gladly use any excuse to drink and act like an ass.


I guess you could say this is the "Original Pime". I stopped blogging here regularly in May 2008 (if you don't count the B-Sides diversion - yes it gets confusing) when I joined the Tumblr revolution. Going forward bravely into 2009, this site will serve to house any large image work I produce.

Peace out.
