    • Drums888, College Graduate

      It seems like a silly thing since I've already been teaching so long, but I have officially graduated. I wore the kilt with the required white tux jacket (no cap & gown for College of Charleston!) because, let's be honest, I'm a huge attention whore.

      I also smuggled in Stephen Colbert's book I Am American (And So Can You!) and read instead of listening to the commencement speech. It was the guy in charge of the Peace Corps, and the whole thing was a long commercial. What a tool. I flashed the book for my graduation photo (I'll post 'em when I get 'em) and flashed it when I walked across the stage. What can I say? Free publicity.

      Anyway, tonight's obviously going to be a good night. Started a bit ago, will continue well into the evening/morning. Catch you kids later on.

    • A Quick Thought

      Forgive me for going all political.... this has been pissing me off for a while and it seems to have sprung up again tonight following the Indiana and North Carolina democratic primaries.

      Tonight's soap-box is in reference to Florida and Michigan. They were told that if they had their primaries when they did, their delegates would not count. Both states knew and understood these rules, yet chose to hold their primaries anyway. And now that said rules are being enforced, it's a problem?

      No no no, my friends. If we live in a society that pushes accountability for teachers via high-stakes test, pushes accountability within government with the checks-and-balances system, and pushes accountability for citizens' actions through the legal process, then we should continue to push accountability and force those states to accept the known consequences of their actions. Had they not known the consequences, it might be different. However, that is a moot point because they were clearly informed and chose to act anyway. They should have to live with their decision and move forward. There are no mulligans in life; let us not go against this principle of accountability that we claim to be so important. To do so would be hypocritcal and set a dangerous precedent for future actions.

      An Englishman playing Scotty!
      by colin_landels
      I know James Doohan wasn't a true scotsman either, but at least he wasn't english!

      Seriously though, the one thing putting me off this film is the thought of Simon Pegg in the role of Scotty. I just can't imagine it.

      Because he's an englishman?

      So u are more ok with a Canadian playing a Scot then an Englishman who is like what, a days drive away from Scotland?
      Re: An Englishman playing Scotty!
      by highspire
      Pegg grew up about 4 hours from Scotland.

      Either way, the topic is ridiculous to begin with.
      Re: An Englishman playing Scotty!
      by Soylent_Green_Is_People
      Wow! That's the definition of "Bigotry".

      There may be bad history between the Scots and the English, but that should be irrelevant to this discussion. What has Simon Pegg personally done to the Scottish people that would make Scottish people dislike him?
      Re: An Englishman playing Scotty!
      by cleothaluum
      He married one of them, for one.

      Re: An Englishman playing Scotty!
      by TheGhostWhoWalks
      It's a known fact that Simon Pegg eats Scottish babies on rye toast... it's true... you can look it up.
      Re: An Englishman playing Scotty!
      by ami_fee68
      I guess we can look it up in a book you wrote?

      I'll bet every time Daniel Day-Lewis opens his mouth in a movie the OP goes into convulsions.

      Re: An Englishman playing Scotty!
      by djthorn
      I bet it annoys the heck out of you, that the actors in Batman Begins and Dark Knight are actually doing american accents too.

      And Hugh Laurie of "House M.D." is english/british doing an american accent as well. oh the horror!!! I do believe thats part of why it's called,,,,,

      Re: An Englishman playing Scotty!
      by ben743
      I imagine the OP is just playing on the rivalry between the English and the Scottish in a light-hearted fasion.

      Either that or he's just another whining Scot with a chip on his shoulder.

      (For the love of God...... I'm joking).

      I hear Zachary Quinto is not a genuine Vulcan, either. Those Hollywood producers, have they no shame?

      MySpace link with unreleased songs and alternate versions.

      The guy's a friend of mine. I've been listening to his stuff a lot the last couple of days and realized I hadn't really mentioned him here in quite some time.

      Check him out. Buy his CDs (all are great... A Thousand Bars, Two Stars, and One Guitar probably being his best to date). smiley1.gif

      I got a month-long teaching job (long-term sub for a guy that bailed mid-term) that will most likely turn into a permanent position at the end of the year. Yay.

      The weird part? It's at my old alma mater. The principal remembered me (not for discipline reasons, mind you) and was very interested in the idea of having an alum come back to teach (I've since found out that a girl in the graduating class ahead of me -- an acquaintance of mine when I was there with whom I never kept up -- is also there now teaching math).


      BTW, props if you got the reference in the title and why I chose it before getting down this far and having your attention brought back to it.

      yea, $145 is a lot of money, but if you dont want to spend that money, the v mask you can prob get for less then $20, all you need to do is make a cape, a black trench coat sorta thng. buy some black dress pants and leather gloves, you prob could get away with that all for maybe $50 or just a bit over

    • d4rkn1ghtm4r

      12 years ago

      i dont know if i am too late to say this, but, if you cant get ur costumes done in time for halloween, you could go as V, that'd be awesome with that mask and all, if you want ill find a place where you can buy it

      The fact that I do not watch TV does not make me stupid, which is what you're implying. I watch BSG on DVD because I didn't have time for it in terms of it's original airing. Other than that, I busy myself with training and schoolwork, with a little time for gaming on the side. Just because I don't watch your "socially impactful" shows does not in ANY way make an indication of my overall intelligence. Be wary, for you are stepping on the toes of someone you ought not to. I won't make pointless internet threats, as they are exactly that, pointless. Just be careful how you talk to people, and the assumptions you make of them.

      Now, if you wouldn't mind, I'd like to get off on a better foot. My name is Ben, how are you this evening?

      You know the original no 6... do you recon she wasnt the same no 6 as the one that warned Gaius had sex with and her back went red... because i recon thats when the get pregnant (i assume this because of the other two.. they had sex, her back went red, and then whalla... BABY AHOY)...

      well, why would they keep a no 6, whom is pregant on a world that would get attacked soon...
