Web pages that play music

If your web page/blog/MySpace page plays music at me just because I made the mistake of visiting it, I'm closing it without reading a word and I'm never coming back. The reasons are these:
1. Your taste in music is not good.
2. My taste in music is awesome, and thus, I am already listening to some. Your bad music does not magically quadrophonically synch with my awesome music.
3. If I'm not listening to music, someone in my vicinity is either asleep or judgemental.
4. You do not respect me as a person, so why should I care about your political opinion/band/family happenings/music festival?

I reserve an almost similar level of wrath for people who direct me to such pages with no warning.

Republicans wrote Bush another blank check

So, y'know the Republican mavericks, moderates, "solons", whatever weird thing you like to call them? They ain't. They just voted to give Dubya another multi-billion dollar blank check to stay the course in Iraq.

Republican Senators John McCain (AZ), Olympia Snowe (ME), Gordon Smith (OR), Susan >Collins (ME), John Sununu (NH), Norm Coleman (MN), and Chuck Hagel (NE), all called "moderates" by the media, all decided to ignore the fact that 59% of Americans wanted a bill with a timeline.

This apparently is not because they think they're doing the right thing. Hagel voted to fund, without oversight, what he calls a "hopeless, winless situation." Smith thinks the policy he just funded, without oversight, to the tune of billions of tax dollars and many more lives lost, is "deeply immoral" and "may even be criminal." This isn't the first time Collins has said one thing and done another on Iraq.


This blog has nothing to do with LOLcats besides aspiring to similar awesomeness.

This blog is as yet themeless. It's about things I love and things I hate. We'll see how many weeks it lasts.
