time bomb tick tock? nervous tic talk? war on war?

or just a blog crying in the wilderness, trying to make sense of it all, terror-fried by hate radio and FOX, the number of whose name is 666??? (coincidence?)

playing catch-up again. in june i read these 2 poems at musehouse and this one at big blue marble.


  1. I know all about catch up myself.... taking my first Blog Walk myself... in ages!

  2. terrible, ain't it?! spending so much time on fb lately i keep forgetting to post stuff here. will take a look at your blog right now!

  3. todd, i can't tell if my comment went thru. proving i'm not a robot keeps getting increasingly difficult. i'm starting to wonder myself....

  4. No one listens to "hate radio". I haven't been able to even find it since I got rid of my shortwave.

    Fox News "terrifying"? The only people they terrify are those who believe that the left-wingers should have a monopoly on TV news.

  5. terrifying? did i say that? fox666 is destructive to everybody because it spreads misinformation and -- yes -- hate, but 'terrifying' doesn't ring a bell. sure it wasn't somebody else?

  6. then again, i can see how i might have said fuxnews is terrifying its viewers about something -- something liberal, for example, or something democratic. fox666 is awash with scare tactics, character assassination, straw man fallacies, psychological projection, denial, etc. it's been demonstrated that conservatives tend to have overgrown amygdalae. maybe that's why they're so fear-drive and aggression-prone and so quickly dislike things that don't fit neatly into their worldview. hate radio does fit into that worldview. that may be why you don't know it when you hear it, dmarks.
