michael and me...

got an e-mail from michael moore, or rather, someone authorized to speak for mr. moore. it said he has a new book out, and he would like me to read it. i've read a few of his books. overall, i thought they were pretty good.

after reading the e-mail, i unsubscribed from his mailing list. needless to say, i won't be reading his new book.

not sure why i did that. i haven't started hating him, or anything. far from it -- i've been a fan of his films for many years. i guess, well, i know what he's going to say before i hear him say it, just like i had a pretty good idea of what would be in that e-mail before i opened it, and maybe i just don't want to hear what he has to say anymore. even if i know i'll agree with most of it. maybe it was time to just cut him loose, nothing more or less.

has anyone else felt this way about michael moore? or any other left-leaning person with name recognition? or is this just one more example of me being me?

i did the exact same thing this morning jim.

a bit opportunistic. especially when i got to the part about how it's a six chapter, big print with illustrations thing.

write or film something real, i might be back.

i ain't shoveling money for puff.

Keith Olbermann lost me during the primaries. It was nonsensical how deeply Obama's dick was in his mouth, to the exclusion of any other candidate.

Minstrel boy: Wow, that's a strange coincidence.

Carl: Huh. Olbermann lost me a while back, too -- and it had nothing to do with Obama. In his case, I was just tired of his Howard Beale-wannabe delivery...

Oddly, Jim, I hadn't noticed until he turned his guns on every white candidate in the race who wasn't John Edwards.
