more politics (or, politics part 2)

it's eight thirty, and it looks like it's safe to say that howard and his friends are back. turning on the tv reveals labor members talking as if it's over, and coalition members claiming that they've won. it's entirely possible that i've mixed the two up, what with their similar nature, and the same dull platitudes and words falling like polished black stones from their mouths, but i looked at the nifty colour graphs and they helped me decipher.

i did catch bob brown, who looked happy at the greens polling higher than expected, much to the annoyance of the reporter.

I'm sure that if i wasn't exhausted i would register something akin to shock, but then again it never ceases to amaze me how people can vote against their own interests.

Ditto on the puppets.

Seachange is beautiful.

sadly, i think most people did vote int heir own interests. they made the status quo vote: nothing new, nothing different. of course, that would have happened with labor, so there's no thrill. however, the problem arising is the 'family first' party that howard took preferences from. the christian right, knocking on a countries door. the puppets will need to learn a new tune now. (a tune they were humming quietly anyhow.)

seachange, i think, is beck's best album.

I agree about the Beck.

And living in Quebec really appeals now, even more than it did before the re-election. The architecture and food aare supposed to be fabulous, and besides, some of my favourite bands are there.

western countries are all beginning to look much the same, i feel, so there ain't no place to go. i'm just going to make me my own country.
