commented on A Prominent "Atheist" Becomes a Christian
damn, way to put a chill on my day:
"They not once felt to their hearts the chill of this icy understanding: the universe is an impersonal process, humans are not special, nothing exists after life. When you feel how cold this is, you will know it is the truth."

commented on Bah Humbucker: The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time*
I feel like Alan Sparhawk (Low) deserves some mention. Nice to see Will Sergeant (Echo and the Bunnymen) on the list. Christian Fennesz is up there for me, though I think much of what impresses me is an extension/processing of his guitar playing.. so not sure.

commented on Meet the People Who Occupy Seattle Was Yelling at In Renton on Black Friday (And Ask Yourself Whether This Is the Best Use of Occupy Seattle's Time)
I support/participate the OWS movement and OS. I do not agree with all the actions they/we take. The movement is a lot of people, some with ideas I love, some with ideas I very much disagree with -- and some with the boldness to actually act on their ideas (which I respect).
I am planning to go down to Olympia Sunday night/Monday morning and it sounds like a lot of OS folks are planning to do the same.
I have found the coverage in The Stranger/Slog to be pretty fair, even when critical (and even when critical in a way I disagree with).
I also am reminded that when something with this movement, which I appreciate and have high hopes for, happens that is contrary to how I feel things should go -- it only means I need to get off of my blog-commenting ass and participate a little more.
