On Bushisms

Those who know me know what a HUGE fan I am of the president.
I've frequently called him an idiot, based on his near-insane foreign policy and his complete lack of understanding of what the American people want or need. I've also frequently chuckled at his gaffes in grammar and syntax, dubbed by some clever SOB as Bushisms.
I had a strangely clarifying thought this morning, though. Technically, under the rules of poetic license, all of his missteps are totally valid. The only real criteria for true poetic license is having been published. As the president of the United States, and as governor of Texas, he's been published more times than you can shake Dick Cheney's shotgun at.
So, technically speaking...he's allowed to make up language as he goes along. He can simply write it off as poetic license, and we can either accept it or go take that proverbial flying leap.

Those of you who have seen Hot Fuzz will be amused.
Those of you who have not...suck.

New feature on The Golden Compass website: Meet Your Daemon

In the world of the His Dark Materials novels (which I still haven't read -- I suck), your soul lives outside your body in human form. The soul is called a daemon, and it takes the form of an animal that matches your personality.

Meet my daemon:

Decided to play around with the Meet Your Daemon feature on The Golden Compass site. Needless to say, I was surprised. I got a jackal daemon named Xanthia, one of 118 different jackal daemons or something like that. I didn't commit it to memory.

Here's the fun folks can help determine if the daemon is right for me. If you take the above quiz, your input will affect what final form the daemon takes.
You have 12 days until it settles into its final form.

Ferris the 13th trailer

Quite frequently, I find myself loving the hell out of these mash-up trailers.
