i answered my second question.
Is anyone here anymore? Was there ever more than one person?
|Monday, March 31st, 2003|
PBS's MAsterpiece Theater is running a production of Daniel Deronda by George Eliot. There is a rich guy- not the nicest guy- named Henleigh Grandcourt. He lives in a grand house. He is always trailed by his weird little friend, Mr Lush. Nobody likes Mr Luch and can't figure out why Grandcourt- popular and handsome, is friends with- lives with him. They say it's because Lush does what Grandcourt wants. Now Grandcourt sets his eyes on a local strong willed girl. He eventually gets her to consent to marry him. Lush tries to interfere but is unsucessful. She doesn't like Lush and tells grandcourt to send him away. Grandcourt tells Lush he will have to leave. But it's only temporary, he says, soon enough Lush can creep back. Alas, any comparison to L and L seems silly to a novel written in the 1870's.
Part two airs tonight.

Well it's Groundhog Day......
The day before yesterday a Palestinian blew himself up and killed 15 civilians. Today, the Israelis killed 11 Palestinian civilians.
Horray for civilization.
|More Family Feud
This time the question was "name something old that people collect."
And they said... "Shoes".

And the question was, something that reminds you of London.
And they said....Spagetti.
And then they said...The Army.

|Highway to Ponderosa
After the Ponderosa shooting, the snipers' directed the cops to a phone booth across from *another* Ponderosa steak house.
Michael replaced Anubis inthe Egyptian pantheon, as the weigher of souls.
Well, folks. There's more Michael.
Most significantly; Michael means "who is as God" or "who is like to God". "CALL ME GOD" was the snipers' message.
Michael is the patron saint of policemen. He also rules money and abundance.
Michael's symbols are sword, shielf, and scales of justice.
|Snipers and Michael
ve had Michael sticking in my head concerning the snipers. They hit two Michael's stores- but also a Ponderosa- that made me say Hmm. Ponderosa- Bonanza- Michael Landon....
As I said in my below post, Malvo was at a 7th Day Adventist school when he met Mohammed. There is some discussion- or was at one time, amongst the 7th Day Adventists, as to whether Jesus was the Arch Angel Michael.
This from a U.K 7th Day Adventist web page; "8. We received a letter stating that a member of an SDA Church in the West Midlands told a Christian that Jesus is Michael the archangel. Is this an official teaching of the SDA Church today, or is it something that they once taught and have now abandoned, with just a few still hanging on to it?
I have to admit that this isn’t something that I have heard much about. However, having looked it up I can tell you that apparently the Church discussed this issue some forty years ago and concluded that the precise identification of Michael was not important enough to dwell on at length. (Questions on Doctrine, p.71). The reasoning behind identifying Jesus with Michael probably comes from 1 Thessalonians 4:16 where the voice of the archangel awakens the dead, and John 5:28 where Jesus said that He would arouse the dead.
The name Michael is always used in an apocalyptic context and I don’t think that identifying Michael with Christ in any way implies that the Lord Jesus is less than fully divine. He is co-eternal and co-equal with the Father. Seven times He referred to Himself in the fourth gospel as I AM, a clear indication that He is God and not just an angel. The very expression "arch-angel" implies someone over or above the angels."
7th Days believe in something called Investigative judgement- sort of a trial of you- to decide if you life in the hereafter. Apparently this whole investigative judgement began on Oct 22, 1844. The Snipers' last victim was shot Oct 22, 2002.
From an anti SDA page;
"Do Seventh-day Adventists teach Jesus is Michael the Archangel?
Yes, Seventh-day Adventists share this belief with Jehovah’s Witnesses. Adventists are very firm in their belief that Jesus is Michael the Archangel. They must take this position because this is what their prophetess, Ellen G. White taught. They also believe that Jesus is God. There is a glaring contradiction here. Hebrews 1:13-14 says that Jesus is not an angel."
So what does this mean? I have no idea. Perhaps nothing. I am not saying Malvo was a practicing SDA. I am saying he was going to an SDA school when Mohammed met him. Ibelieve that is significant. Also, keep in mind that the letters they left for the police are full of vague Jamaican references most probably from Malvo.
Malvo wrote the letters.
|A Certain Ring to It...
Mohammed and Malvo has a strange ring to it. When these two aren't being called Al queda members, their "strange" relationship comes up. Strange relationship, of course, means homosexual relationship. I have, however, only found two references that draw specific links between Leopold and Loeb and Mohammed and Malvo- one being on a Saturday Night Live newsgroup- referring to them as the "ambiguosly Gay Sniper Duo", another referring to crimes commited by duos.
As far as the similarities- I don't think they are yet very strong, certainly not as strong as Tulloch and Parker.
Anyhow, they are...
ransom. Ten Million dollars. L and L's ransom was $10,000
More striking- the random victim. This is what has made this a sensational crime- regular people, going about their activities. This is what made the L and L case *so* spectacular, among other things.
Apparently toying with the police.
Mohammed and Malvo are vegetarians. This has been described as Mohammed keeping Malvo on a strict diet of crackers and honey- but here's a little fact. Malvowas attending a Seventh Day Adventist school BEFORE he med Mohammed- 7th Day Adventists are vegetarians.
What could be worse than a possibly homosexual Vegetarian Muslim?
Meanwhile, the authorities are fighting over who gets to kill them first, calling it Justice.

|Still Not Getting It
An alt.gothic they are "discussing" if we can use that term, the benefits of Livejournal. Those that don't get it claim those that do, are in effect, talking to themselves. Those that do get it explain that they are far too busy to update all their friends on their busy lives.
Is this what we've come to, humanity?
"Haven't you ever had people whom you don't care (much) about, but who care about you? Have you ever felt any measure of responsibility for such people, or even just wanted to supply them with enough
information to get them off your back?" (quoted from alt.gothic)
Is this your excuse?
Livejournal is a forum for people to talk incessently about themselves and makes their ego's bloom. Pretty!
Of course wa can't say we want to talk about ourselves so we make an apparently politically correct statement that we are doing it because we're too busy and too nice to tell all the losers that we don't want to talk to- off! Yes, Biff, that makes a ton of sense.
Please, humanity, do everyone a favor and get your head out of your ass. Everyone lies, and since everyone doesn't want to get caught lying, we all nod and wink and nudge nudge and share the deception. We're too busy. I'm too busy! You're too busy! Sure. That's it.
You like to listen to yourself talk. You're shallow. Look. It's not the end of the world. What I want to know is, why do you think it's better to be a fucking asshole who really hates all your friends than shallow??
So ,alas, I'm back where I started. I don;t "Get" livejournal. I DO like listening to myself talk, however.

My tenth grade English teacher was named Mr Goff. He had no neck. He told us stupid stories and we could get him talking all period long. One day he told us about his time eating quamquats (sp?) and how the juice dribbled down his chin. I only remember that me intelligent fellow classmates then took up the theme outside of class of Mr Goff and his Cum shots. This remained funny for months. It's the simple things....

The Red Guy lived in Barre, Vermont.
A year and a half ago, Barre again appeared into my consciousness. The Zantop murder had occured in Hanover, New Hampshire. Half and Suzanne Zantop, two Dartmouth college professors, were murdered in their home. The story didn't grab my attention until about six weeks later, when the local news reported on a manhunt for two teenage boys whose car was found at the Sturbridge Rest Stop on the Mass Pike.
And a senseless crime.
A Thrill killing.
I was instantly obsessed.
James Parker and Robert Tulloch murdered the two Dartmouth professors in a half baked scheme to acquire $10,000. But, it was mostly a thrill kill, a test to conquer their fear.
Parker and Tulloch lived in Chelsea, Vermont.
Chelsea is a few miles from Barre.
It is a tiny town with one school. One school. K-12. James Parker, at one point, attempted to escape the Chelsea public school by transferring to the High School....in Barre, Vermont.
|The Red Guy
When I was in High school there was a freebie newpaper called the 21st Century that was distributed throughout New England. It had a pen pal section and that's how I "met" the Red Guy.
The Red Guy- who always wrote in Red, was quite an interesting character. I brought his letters to school with me and let my political science classmates read them.
Once, the red guy sent me three jelly beans. The first letter began "She's recieved far too many responses. I'm helping her out." Since I had originally written a letter to a girl's ad, it seemed that intro made perfect sense. However, at the time, It was totally lost on me and seemed to be some cryptic code. The Red Guy always signed his letters "Devon". He once told me he loved me. I came across another pen pal who made vague references to the Red Guy, who, by this time, had revealed his name as "Scott".
This other pen pal had no ide I knew about whom she was making her melodramatic obviously "obscure" references.
I asked Scott. He told me about meeting this girl. How he had thought they were a perfect match until they met, and then he never wanted to see her again. A bit of after disgust in Pen Pal style. That's when he told me he loved me and that he hoped we wouldn't meet.
Later, he gave me his phone # in case I'd ever need to contact him.
I never called.
He did, however, call me.
We hadn't written in years.
I was living with someone and my mother gave Scott my phone #. He left two vague messages on my machine, and that's the last I ever heard of him.
