new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

uppity women and the neo-nazi rabid dogs

a post at astrogator's logs about the incident i reacted to a couple of days ago when a piece of filth attacked people who disagreed with him, on television:

so the obvious solution to society’s ills is to beat this outspoken woman until she stops speaking, the traditional “remedy” for termagants who do not exhibit the feminine virtues of compliance and silence. when this happens people cheer gleefully, not realizing that thugs like kasidhiáris make no distinctions: everything around them gets smashed. women are just the canaries in this particular mine. they are the first to become non-humans whenever fascism raises its banner, making hatred and fear steeds for its chariot. kanélli made the point explicitly after the assault: “it happened to be my face,” she said, “but there are many faces that get hit by these people – faces of weak and scared victims that we never see.”
