The Ballad of an Un-Deadpan Yankee

"When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro." Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

Drewsuvius: The Besnarker of Worlds
This journal is friends only, with the exception of the occasional review-type thing.

So, what can I tell you? I'm in my 30's, a survivor of Rutgers University with a Bachelor's degree in English (would you like fries with that? hehe). I am currently employed as the Little Man Inside Your TV That Makes It Work, AKA, a Master Control Operator at a local TV news station(trust me, it's a lot more boring than it may sound). I am a sarcastic geek, but I'm sure that will become readily apparent as you peruse the entries I put in this thing. I am also engaged to the most fantastic woman on the planet, if luck is finite, I used up a good chunk of it when she agreed to marry me. =) I suppose I'm doing one of these to deal with my feelings of resentment at never getting on a season of The Real World, or getting anywhere near that damn island. Just kidding, truth is my job can be excruciatingly dull, and this seems like a pretty good way to pass the time. So, welcome to my world. Just remember to pull out before your brain explodes. Hehe =)

"Journalism is just a gun. It's only got one bullet in it, but if you aim right, that's all you need. Aim it right, and you can blow a kneecap off the world." -- Spider Jerusalem - "Transmetropolitan"

"My prejudice is pretty general, far too broad and sweeping for any racial limitations. It's clear to me - and has been since the age of 10 or so - that most people are bastards, thieves and yes - pigfuckers." -- Hunter S. Thompson, Doctor of Journalism

"The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And even if he is not romantic personally he is very apt to spread discontent among those who are." -- H.L. Mencken

"Insanity: a perfect rational adjustment to an insane world" -- R.D. Lang

"Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want and deserve to get it good and hard." -- H. L. Mencken

"Fuck 'em if they can't take a joke." -- too many to name.
