NYE 2005

The typical NYE celebration usually never lives up to all of the hype. The only exception to that was in 1999 when my friend Mark gave us his apartment to use and the BF and I went to NYC to welcome in a new millennium. But this year is going to be different. Washington Social Club (my favorite local band) is playing at DC9 and it will be a blast!

Finally something FUN to do in DC for NYE....BTW does anyone remember the dropping of the lighted stamp at the old DC post office to welcome in the New Year? God that was lame.

The BF did such a great job writing about our adventures on his blog you can read it all there.

The Dinger Zone's PERSON OF THE YEAR 2005

Face it, her actions have had the most effect on the world's people. From the final days of 2004 which saw a tsunami that killed hundreds of thousands of people, to a record hurricane season which devastated the U.S Gulf Coast, to earthquakes, and wild fires MOTHER NATURE has been on a 365 day PMS rampage.

So who ever took the bitches butter, will you please give it back!

BURRRRR.....With below average temps and lowering your thermostat because of sky high fuel prices, someone in your home is bound to utter "baby it's cold in here." Well, our friends at OUT magazine have just the solution. A fab-u-lous Orylag Throw Blanket by Agnona....cost $10,000. That's right, killing the cute bunny because some thong wearing MO doesn't think "she" looks good in flannel!

Now repeat after me...Are you out of your fucking homo mind!?!

Before I begin this rant, I am not attempting to offend anyone. These are just my beliefs and this is my space to express those beliefs....

I have long contested that religion is a learned behavior. We need food, clothing, shelter. Religion, much like mathematics, is learned. We have no instinctual need for religion. We are taught religion.

I say...

Since the beginning of time, man has use religion to divide and segregate people. Religion has been used to start wars that has killed millions of people. This blind faith is used for evil and hate all over the world today. The church is the most segregated place you will find. Everyone secure in their belief that their GOD is the ONE and only true Savior (can I get an amen?) It's fine with me that you may want religion and the camaraderie that goes with belonging to a church. All I ask is that you don't impose your beliefs on me and my beliefs.

I know many people get strength through their spirituality. But why does it have to be "believe in my GOD or you burn in hell?" I was taught that GOD and his son are a loving, caring, forgiving people. I was taught to fear my Savior. I have grown to NOT fear my Savior. I believe that it's the way you treat your fellow man is how you will truly be judged.

This Holiday Season we have been treated to an example of the way religion is used to divide people. Jerry Falwell and Fox News have teamed up to declare that there is a "War on Christmas." They are pissed off about people using the "Happy Holidays" greeting instead of "Merry Christmas." They say that since the majority of people in the U.S. are some form of Christian that "Merry Christmas" is the only acceptable greeting. AGAIN, let's use religion to divide people and create more hate. This same majority rules mentality was used to keep this country segregated until the mid 1960's. Hate is Hate. You can wrap it up in Christmas paper and put a pretty bow on it...But it's still Hate.

In a month that sees the celebration of the Winter Solstice, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and the beginning of a New Year can't we all just be inclusive and wish everyone a HAPPY HOLIDAY?

Let the religious hatemongers can go back to spewing their message on January 2 after I get over my hangover!

Last night I broke my curfew on watching too much TV news to see the hour long Brian Williams interview with Duh'bya. I figured that with the Iraq elections tomorrow it might be good to see what he had to say. And since he was sitting down with a journalist from a "liberal media" outlet maybe some real questions might be asked. Not the kind of fluff that someone from Faux News would ask. The debate over the war has heated up recently thanks to some Democrats that have found their balls. There has been a lot of talk from Dems saying we can't win this war. The reply from Republicans is that we can win, will win, and that anyone who questions our ability and their leadership is a Commie.

So I ask, What will victory in Iraq be? And will we know it when it is achieved?

This is a question that no one seems to ask.

2,140 American soldiers have died in Iraq. 2,000 of those deaths have come since the "Mission accomplished" speech. The U.S. deficit is at an all time high. Our standing in the world has been greatly tarnished. We are guilty of torture.

Will victory be setting up an Iraq government that is fair to all people and free of corruption? Hell, we don't have that here in the U.S.

Will victory be an "acceptable" level of killings per year? Say something between P.G. County and NYC's?

I agree that the world is better off without Saddam in power. And yes, freedom for the people of that region might make for a more stable world. But the one thing that I think no one in the administration seems to recognize is that the people of that region fight wars. They fight wars based on religious beliefs and they fight those wars for hundreds of years. Duh'bya says we will win, and if he had to do it all over again he would.

So I ask, what will victory in Iraq be?

Howdy all, This weekend the BF (aka Dumbek) celebrates the first anniversary of his 39th birthday.

The fun started last night at the Green Lantern where we got to hang out with Chirsafer, Clickboo, Copperred, and Mr. Bartender. Actually had some time to talk with Mr. B as he was on the customer side of the bar. What a great guy. Also ran into Brian (with an i) who the BF and I had not seen in like a year. It was great to catch up with him.

Saturday, one of my best buds Bob is coming to town from Philly to party and the three of us are going to the 9:30 Club to see Dark Star Orchestra. They are one of the best GRATEFUL DEAD cover bands I've seen. They pick a set list from an actual show and play it from start to finish. It should be a blast.

Sunday evening will involve an outing to a place but I can't go into details since the cone of silence doesn't apply to reading. BUT you will be notified. Later Sunday night we might go to TAINT, David (outofstepdc) will be DJ-ing.

Monday, the actual day of birth, we will again be at the 9:30 Club to see X

.....gonna be a hell of a weekend! And hope to see many of you in our adventures.
