new year

"so this is the new year.
and i don't feel any different.
the clanking of crystal
explosions off in the distance

"so this is the new year
and i have no resolutions
for self assigned penance
for problems with easy solutions

"so everybody put your best suit or dress on
let's make believe that we are wealthy for just this once
lighting firecrackers off on the front lawn
as thirty dialogues bleed into one"

~~death cab for cutie, new year

well, once again a new year is upon me. 2004, much like 2003, was a crazy year with plenty ups and downs. so what's up with this upcoming year? i dunno. i don't do those crappy resolutions. i'm not into goals. i'm just gonna continue being me.

i spent new year's eve up at club vortex with jeff. good music. plenty of gorgeous women. 'twas nice. i forgot my camera though, so you'll just have to take my word for it.

classes start up again tomorrow. i'm registered for early modern philosophy, feminist theory, lds media and culture, philsophy forum, and philosophy of science. i want to drop the last class though and find an easy 2 credit class full of beautiful girls. after last semester, i wanna take an easier load. hopefully i'll be able to find this shangri-la of classes.


  1. "LDS Media & Culture," eh? And I see your pal R. Dennis Potter is teaching it, too. . .

    One interesting thing to investigate might be how (if at all) "the media" are dealing with the faith of new Senate Minority Leader, Harry Reid. I read a good TIME Magazine piece on the Nevada Senator (written by Joe Klein of "Primary Colors" fame). Not that I've been paying much attention, but it was the first article I've read that really went into that aspect of Reid's life.

    Another topic might be how (if at all) "the media" will report on the upcoming bicentennial of Joseph Smith's birthday. There was a very distressing Boston Globe article about it right before Christmas. (http://www.boston.com/news/nation/articles/2004/12/19/smith_bicentennial_renewing_debate_over_mormon_founder/)

    Or, I guess you could watch "God's Army" and "The Singles Ward" and "Pride & Prejudice" and "Saints & Soldiers" while listening to "Jericho Road" (^-^)

    Good luck with it--and I'll bet there will be some young women in the class looking for their own "R.M."
