I'm Back

I've been on vacation for a week and blissfully unaware of the events of the outside (non-Disney) world.

It does a body good.

Not until the last couple things I saw at Epcot did politics begin to reenter my mind... Little things just kept creeping in like how all of the good things and advances in our civilization seem to come from a liberal mentality rather than capitalist or conservative. It all hit home after watching the "Circle of Life" video hosted by Simba the Lion channeling Al Gore, that Republicans might, in fact, be evil. At least as evil as a Disney villain anyway...

I am now slammed with backed-up freelance work, so posting might continue to be light for a while. But I am back

Welcome back. You missed an entire week of the Republicans sinking, Bush sounding silly and FRTs and beer reviews. So to sum up: you have really missed nothing, and were better-off on vacation.

Welcome back!

Mr Furious said...

Yeah, it seems the biggest thing I missed was one week of parking cars for Michigan football...

Mike said...

Welcome back.

I hope you get the chance to post a little about that most il-liberal, conservative place: Disneyworld.

What's funny is I was struck by how much of what I saw there belied the corporation's conservative bent. Granted much of this is based on feel-good Epcot boilerplate environmentalism, etc. but nonetheless it was there.

We had planned this trip before the whole ABC/Disney/Path to 9/11 bullshit, and I confess to never actually considering cancelling the trip. I wished there was an equivilent place to spend my money, but anticipating the look in my daughter's eyes made that a short debate.

And yes, I was actually up for a job with the Disney Corp. at the time as well. So, yeah, I'd take their filthy money to put food on my table, too.


I didn't get the job. So "Burn in Hell, Mickey!"
