So having secured a new apartment, I will be moving from Stonehame to Reading (this is a very short distance for those of you not in the know). I have not scheduled a truck rental yet, but am expecting to schedule on for saturday, and hope to get everything that requires a truck moved then. If anyone would like to help, or has a large vehicle they would like to let me borrow/move things with between now and the end of the month, I will be greatly appreciative.

|"The Shock Doctrine"
To those who have not heard of this book, you should go out and get it and start reading, with what is going on in the economy, especially regarding the "bail out", getting informed now and making your voice heard is the BARE MINIMUM you should be doing. If I wasn't broke, I would be buying copies of this book and mailing it to people.
Also, check out here for more information as it pertains to whats going on right now.http://www.naomiklein.org/shock-doctrine/resources/disaster-capitalism-in-action

|Anyone want to buy a lot of roleplaying books?
Before I go and trade all my old roleplaying books into Pandemonium for store credit, I was curious if anyone would be interested in buying them for more then the 20% of cover price or so I would be getting there. I don't have an exact list of what I've got, its mostly old white wolf stuff, and probably some rifts/tmnt/palladium stuff, might be a little bit of gurps in there too. Its mostly in good condition, and I don't really want to part with them, but with my ever growing children, space is at a premium, and I find it unlikely that I will be using them to game ever again (I'm pretty focused on Warhammer/40k these days, and by the time the boys are old enough to game, I'm sure that there will be plenty of equally enjoyable games available).
Anyway, let me know in the next few days, becuase I'm probably going to try and trade the stuff in this Sunday so I can free up those shelves.

The Meatmen are playing on May 10 At Club Hell in Providence. Anyone else going? I'm going to buy tickets soon (in case they sell out) and if anyone needs them, they are like $13. Let me know if you need me to pick up tickets for you in the next couple of days, or if you're going and want to try and carpool. My folks are going to be watching the monkeys that weekend, so if need be, I'll be able to take the car.

|Is Cusraque really Bob Sagat?
I was just listening to the radio, whatever two clowns are on WAAF in the morning, and they started talking to Bob Sagat, and I'll tell you, if I didn't know otherwise, I'd be convinced that they where talking to Cusraque. Even the sorts of absolutely hilarious and disturbing types of pseudo profanity he was using was familiar. So, has anyone else noticed this in the past, or am I just suffering delusions because I've been up for like 3 days with almost no sleep?

|Books on Tape
in the realm of awesomeness, I have recently found Rudyard Kipling's "Just So Stories", read by Boris Karloff, and they are unbelievably good. Well, actually, I guess if you think about it, they are believably good, but either way, I just thought I would let other people know they exist so you can also experience the joy.

I have never read a complete work by H.P. Lovecraft, only portions of one thing or another when lounging around at other peoples homes. I have decided to remedy this, and I am looking for a good place to start. Does anyone have any particular favorites? Are there any real crapfests one might do best to avoid?
Also, I was curious if anyone knows of a realistic fleshy long lasting substance I could use to make a replica of my face with, once I have figured out how to make a cast of my face to base it on. I also could use some advice on how people generally affix hair to such things. I would go into a little greater detail, but I don't really want to spoil the surprise if I am succesfull.

Who all is going out to ceremony tonight? Despite my general resignation about the fact that impoverished fathers with very small children are not generally able to go to clubs, I have decided to fight the tides of fate once more and leave the house to go someplace other then work. As that I do this so rarely, I am hoping that it won't be a complete wash, so if anyone wants to shoot me a message or email letting me know that they will be out, it will dramatically increase my motivation to actually leave the house.

|Baby Pics from the last few months
I uploaded about 15-20 new baby pictures, things are still not very exciting around here when it comes to non-baby stuff. I am barely treading water financially, and have been sick with a stomach bug which I caught at the tail end of a sinus infection, but other then that, I guess I'm ok. Mostly I just watch the boys and try and find some time to work on hobbies or read. Anyway, the important stuff follows:
Peter (now 2 years old)
Isaac (now 6 months old)
The rest of the pictures are here:http://s13.photobucket.com/albums/a293/zomb0y/may%202%202007/

|Drew Hayes Dead
Well, I just found out Drew Hayes, the writer of posion elves, died a few weeks ago of a heart attack, this has me rather depressed, since I have been long awaiting his return to writing comics. Anyway, its always odd how much someone you have never really met or talked to can influence your mood. On an unrelated note, Isaac and peter are both giants.... well, they are both very tall for their ages. Also, sometime teaching your child to talk in monster voices bits you in the ass, like when you ask them to do something and they turn their head and say in a gutteral voice "NO! Mine! Stop It!", Its very exorcist.
