Save Public Broadcasting!

23 06 2008 | 11:18 am

Dear Friend,

We need your help to advocate for a public broadcasting system that offers more independent programming, harder-hitting journalism, and the educational, ad-free content that is missing from commercial media.

The Bush administration is pushing for severe cuts to the budget for public broadcasting. The House Appropriations Committee has the power not just to reject Bush's budget cuts, but to demand increased funding for public media to ensure they can continue to serve our local communities.

Go to the URL below to check out what's at stake and send a message directly to Congress urging them to stop the cuts. Take action on this alert from Free Press at:

well, i did it. i have a 12 gauge hole in my septum. and at one point it had jewelry in it.

at one point. for about 2 minutes while he let me check it out in the mirror, mostly to see how crooked it was. yeah. then he took it out, mostly because he refused to leave it in. i can get it redone in 3-4 weeks. i paid for the jewelry, but he didn't charge me for the piercing and won't charge me for the re-piercing.

it didn't really hurt that much. he was really gentle. what pain there was felt more like an explosion or release. and then the adrenaline kicked in.

i'm a little bummed, but mostly proud that i did it. the weirdest part is knowing that i've finally proven my hardcore self but no one else can tell. almost like part of me is still walking around with a (visible) septum piercing and expects people to notice. doesn't help that my nose is still swollen and it tingles when i breathe.

i guess the lesson to learn here is that it's not the outward change that matters, but the inward change.

i did get my first tattoo priced. and realized the perfect placement for one of the others.

this may just be the beginning of an era.

my huge project launches today, and consequently i slept like shit last night/this morning, complete with bad dreams. after the fact, though, i'm amused that the setting for said nightmares was a suburban shopping center.

this morning, somewhere between my apt door and the front door of the building, my ipod disappeared. i thought it was in my bag, so i left. it wasn't. i checked the foyer when i got home. not there either. i'm extremely puzzled. i knocked on all the doors, but it being friday night, no one's home. of course.

i just hope that someone grabbed it, will see my note, and then return it. i mean, it's not your normal ipod, with its gelaskin cover and "you are beautiful" sticker on the back. and i'd just dropped it, so who knows if it works.

i just wish i knew what happened to it. it disappeared in only 10 cubic feet of space, and only four people use that door.

i'm flabbergasted. and a little bummed.

yay friday night. sigh.
