Diary of a Narcissistic Misanthrope

I like to think I’m an acquired taste, like old whiskey or arsenic in your tea

My name is Clarence (Hello), born in 1988, i got my undergrad degree in Sociology (with a concentration in Women's Studies) and I'm utterly terrified. I'm scared of everything, people, my own feelings and sometimes even being but really there's nothing much to be done about that despite what I say. And I will say a lot about how my life has no meaning and i want to die (which is the majority of the time) but sometimes it seems like life is worth living for and everything in it is a spectacular explosion of awe inspiring wonder (which is usually a three week span some time in March). If it seems odd to read think what it might be like living it. So to get off the topic of terror I prefer stories es. I like to read them, I love to live in them and there is nothing better to me than a story so I guess this blog is a story mostly about me. Don't bother trying to find themes, connection or messages in what I post cause there really aren't any (unless they are completely accidental).

This blog is a story about what I find, what I feel and what I think so to that end I collect things to post or reblog. Its not meant to be anything truly meaningful or interconnected, just fun (mostly fun for me if you don't like it you can fuck right off) This is collection of all the the weird and interesting links from around the net that I find, comics, technology, comedy, current events, sociology, general geek/nerd interest, and more weird stuff. I think it makes for the closest representation to who I am that I've ever done and it just keeps growing bigger which is most of the fun. Please feel free to talk to me and don't mind the depressive tone i will probably be using. I like to think I'm somewhat fun if also a complete idiot.

All in all, last night was a fine conclusion to the trilogy of debates. Between the two candidates, a sincere belief in a peaceful world and acceptance… of remote controlled hellfire drones to achieve that end.

Romney during his time as governor vetoed two pieces of legislation that would have improved two elevators under the Americans With Disabilities Act. 

I’m hoping Mitt Romney can get his act together in this debate because as a conservative pundit, or rather, playing a conserve pundit…it’s so difficult for me right now to get behind Mitt Romney. It’s incredibly frustrating as a performer who has to model behavior that is so schizophrenic and bifurcated because it’s almost an unprecedented candidacy – as far as I can tell. No one seems to like him – even the people who are behind him. There isn’t a sort of monolithic point of view to base my own satire on.

Basically, the satire of my character in relation to Mitt Romney now is night to night, I can change my mind and I can be hopeful or in despair from night to night because I have no point of reference for what’s happening now. Even McCain in 2008 post-Lehman Brothers might have seemed like a bit of a winged duck, but people still liked him. People were still behind him.

You get a feeling that everybody of the sort that I’m modeling really has one foot out of the boat right now and I really I hope Mitt – I mean listen I have my own political views, but as a performer I hope he does something positive tonight so that there’s something for me to rally behind because that’s what my character wants to do… He wants to have a champion that he can champion and that just doesn’t exist in Mitt Romney right now. He’s just a walking wound.


Presidential debate bingo time! Here’s all the cards as an album:

The squares are not candidate-specific unless denoted as such. The debate will air on NBC, ABC, and CBS, along with C-SPAN. It will be live-streamed at C-SPAN’s site, and on The Nation, plus numerous other sources. If you’re having trouble finding a site, let me know.

We’re doing things a bit differently now!

This time around, win a swag bag packed with political stickers, buttons, a yard sign, and more! The most bingos across the most cards will win a swag bag with Obama buttons and stickers, plus additional fun political stuff I’ve picked up along the way.

To enter, submit your cards within one hour of the debate’s conclusion. And hey, if you don’t like Obama, there’s going to be other cool stuff in there and you can sell the Obama stuff to a fan.

Suddenly, capitalism.

The winner will be notified Friday — I’ll need your home address in order to ship you your bag o’ goodness, so if you submit from outside Tumblr, use a valid email! I will still give gifs for bingos, so submit the cards.

Follow me on twitter as I live blog the debates: @meglanker

Oh, yes.

Again, submit cards here or email completed cards to meglanker@gmail.com

GIF prizes for first submission and most bingos on one card!

Happy bingo, folks!



Obama currently leads Romney by ten points in Ohio, nine points in Florida and 12 points in Pennsylvania. Which wouldn’t be a problem (for Romney) — if between now and November 6th, we could just get 290 million people to move to Arkansas.

Fuck you, Mitt.

Mitt Romney: The Smiler?
Someone said Rick Santorum had the look. Romney has the attitude.
