"...it's not the training to be mean but the training to be kind that is used to keep us leashed best." ~ Black Dog Red

"In case you haven't recognized the trend: it proceeds action, dissent, speech." ~ davidly, on how wars get done

"...What sort of meager, unerotic existence must a man live to find himself moved to such ecstatic heights by the mundane sniping of a congressional budget fight. The fate of human existence does not hang in the balance. The gods are not arrayed on either side. Poseiden, earth-shaker, has regrettably set his sights on the poor fishermen of northern Japan and not on Washington, D.C. where his ire might do some good--I can think of no better spot for a little wetland reclamation project, if you know what I mean. The fight is neither revolution nor apocalypse; it is hardly even a fight. A lot of apparatchiks are moving a lot of phony numbers with more zeros than a century of soccer scores around, weaving a brittle chrysalis around a gross worm that, some time hence, will emerge, untransformed, still a worm." ~ IOZ

Wherein a waste of a half hour, whilst I decide between oat bran and bran flakes, results in a moment of serendipity

Montag, who should write more, has a tumblr account and a quintillion tumblr followers. I don't really get tumblr, but repostedrebloggedrecreatedrespectacularized snippets of pop culture aren't my thing. I dropped windowpane to Siouxsie's voice coming out of a semi-portable, lost beneath a freakish moon in the woods of New England, but there's no combination of circumstances in which I can imagine compu-editing dramatic poses of her into non-terminating looping gifs.

Still, for kicks, wandering through Montag's tumblr followers is often rewarding on its own merits.

Especially today.

Because I found this, and it makes my old bones very, very happy:

Damn, that's good.

Trips down the Lesser Stump Lane have made me laugh out loud on so many occasions that I am compelled to take that route regularly.
