if you're lost
i'm seeing alot of hits coming here from yahoo and google searches related to the abu ghraib prison scandal. first of all, as far as i can tell the correct spelling is "abu ghraib", alot of the hits are coming here because i butchered the spelling on it in an earlier post. if you're looking for the pictures and "real news", you're in the wrong place, go here (click on the sidebar for photos, sicko). if you're looking for intelligent commentary on those pictures, you're still in the wrong place, try here, here, or here. if you want to read the grammatically incorrect rantings of a deranged vet, then welcome, here it is!

update if you did wander in here accidently and are wondering what the hell you're looking at, take the time to read this.

update the second and the hits just keep on coming. i think i'm going to start deliberately misspeelin werds more often, it's good for my treffik


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
