I don't overthink the internet
naimhe: I do enough overthinking in real life, I just can’t manage it online. I write stuff. If I didn’t write it here, I’d write it somewhere so I just write it here.

This is a funny person being very serious, actually talking about process. What comedian talks about process?” Mr. Colbert not only talks about process, he has become a part of it. The...

More good news for Tugboat Media!
One of my current clients told me this morning that she had basically gotten me another client wanting exactly what I doing for said current client and potentially expanding from just doing campaign consulting and be full on campaign manager for both of them as campaigns gear up in the spring.

Jane’s Addiction dropped so much acid before this concert they have no idea what state they are actually in.
reallyfoxnews: inothernews: This is one of just a few onscreen graphics that Fox “News” actually put on the air. I remember some asshole on here going on about how I was declaring “class warfare” because I thought things like universal healthcare were good things, things that would benefit our fellow men and women who — numbering in the tens of millions — go without such things.

thedotte: Below are the dates and times for the last eight public hearings for the House and Senate Special Committee on Redistricting. For my fellow Kansans who may be concerned about what the Legislature will do to our current districts.
There are some days where I worry about only doing contract work and consider looking for more stable consulting gigs. But then a day like today happens and I forgot about all that. This day is awesome, even if it means I’ll be super busy for awhile.
