Every time I see a character with my name in fiction, I always get this little jolt. Like surprise or something. Is that cause Seth is a pretty rare name as far as names go, or are other people this way?

I really do. I'm getting tired of listening to the same stuff I always do. In This Moment's remake of "Call Me" is the most recently discovered song of mine. It's a little more rocky than I usually like but it's way good, regardless. The song just before that was "I Do Not Hook Up," by Kelly Clarkson. LOVE that song, lol.

But yes, I need something new. Hmm, I guess I'll go poke around some music charts and see what's new.

I hate it when LJ messes with the header bar. I really do. At least this one isn't as annoying as the "dead journal" menu bar they had for Halloween.

From YouTube: "Since 1911, the Indianapolis 500 has set the standard for high-octane drama."

Driving in a circle five hundred times is "high-octane drama?" Really?

Yeah, I'm sorry. There's just no way to make left-turn racing exciting. None at all.

On Atheism

A long while ago I posted a comment on a youtube video. I don't recall exactly what was said, but just today I noticed in my youtube inbox I had a reply to that comment. Basically it amounted to "even Atheists have religion because they believe there is no god." (Emphasis mine.)

No. No, no, no. Religion is not just the belief in something, it is the specific belief in a higher, supernatural power of some sort. It is not an umbrella term for belief of any kind. I believe the sun will rise tomorrow. That does not make me religious.

Not to mention that their reply was flawed at the very deepest level. Atheism is not about belief, it is about the absence of belief. Atheism is not "I believe in no god." That would imply there is something out there to not believe in. Atheism is "I do not believe in god." There has been no evidence I've yet come across to induce belief of any sort, negative or otherwise. It's not that I'm choosing not to have belief in any one god, it's that I do not believe any kind of god exists in the first place.

To go back to my first example, I believe the sun will rise because I've seen it do so every day of my life. This is based on an objective reality that will not change if I choose to not to believe in it. God has no objective presence, and thus there is no belief. I'm not choosing to not believe, it's simply that no belief exists.

It's a subtle but important distinction, and one I wish more people would become aware of before they go engaging in debates. But this is the internet, after all, and expecting people to actually know what they're talking about before their mouths open is pretty much a lost cause to begin with.

Children's programing is the most inane, insipid thing I have ever had the misfortune of laying my eyes on. Remember old-school Disney? Kids shows today should be like that. Not mind-meltingly stupid.

I don't remember what it's called but it's an old-school Nintendo game. It's the one where Mario can get that suit that looks like a raccoon or a bear or whatever. My brothers and I called it the "birthday suit" for no reason at all.

Old-school Nintendo for the win!

Thank god it's over. What a completely fucking useless holiday.

So, the so-called Twilight "saga" has been getting quite a lot of bashing over the internet these days. Let me first say, I haven't read them. I don't plan to. I have no use for useless heroines. In fact, if your main female character can even be described as a heroine instead of a hero in her own right, I'm just not interested. I don't have time. There are too many women in my life who are the very epitome of strength to bother with those who are basically wastes as human beings*. Harsh, perhaps, but absolutely true.

The problem of evil behind the cut. )

*My one and only exception being Christine Daae from Phantom of the Opera. Yes, she's the embodiment of useless, but hey--the music's fantastic and I was too young to know better.

Just a few minutes ago I stumbled across this LJ comm that let's you download video clips of gay porn to watch on your Nintendo DS. I loled.

Now if only I hadn't sold mine. Damn it!

Courtesy of Meilin's site, I just found the most awesome story about people ignorant of Obama's actual policies. Is the shit.

Go read it right now, before the socialism.

I found this browsing around the other day.

Found this on the internet. Apple's newest product: the iRack.

Well, it's obviously not Apple's latest product, but, in fact, a parody of Bush's policies. I couldn't say it better myself.

So, my first actual post wherein I actually post something. This was inspired by the guy who relettered the pages of Marvel's sucktastic Civil War cross over. It is the first issue of the relaunch of Wonder Woman done by me. I have to confess that though Heinberg's WW was far from perfect I mostly enjoyed it. However, he shafted Donna. This is my solution to that.

A competent Donna behind the cut. )

I own none of these characters, this was done purely for personal enjoyment, no copyright infringement is intended. Also, I know I have a typo, however I no longer have the originals so it will have to remain that way. Sorry.
