Formerly Felines for Anarchistic Green Democracies

A Bostonian at the University of Michigan.

There will also be discussion of the New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins, and Michigan Wolverines. Probably in that order.

Weblog Commenting and Trackback by

Monday, January 31, 2005  
OK, first off, I SWEAR TO GOD that the RantBlog is getting there. I really want to just not post anything until I have it done, but, yeah, wasn't happening. Still, I'm keeping this short, because I REALLY AM ACTUALLY WORKING ON THE RANTBLOG, like, right at this very moment. As we speak. Or as your eyes wibble lazily across what I have previously written, but you know.


We've been trucking along with this, and the emails have been picking up quite a bit since the playoffs began. We even picked up a stray, the lovely and intelligently amusing Kristen, who is joining us as a guest emailer for the end run.

So, here are the installments I haven't been updating you on because I've been a lazy person lately. They're all up on the side if you want to go back and read the previous ones (I think Part 7 was the last one I detailed here in the body of the blog-- that's the one where we had a rollicking huge fight about Randy Moss).

Part 8: Kristen joins us for the first time, we learn that it will be a Patriots/Eagles Superbowl, which means that it's three Pats fans versus one Eagles fan in TCFTland. Sorry, Mer.
Part 9: I am in class while this happens, so my dulcet tones go unheard. Frelling studios. While I'm gone, the gals throw around some comments on hair (Tommy and Freddie) and, you know, actual football.
Part 10: I return at the end of this one and discover that my inbox has been violated by a billion TCTF emails. Before I get back, they discuss the whining of the Steelers, and whether or not the Pats get enough respect.
Part 11: I attempt to get caught up, and then the whole thing derails and we spend the rest of the installment talking about, um, the aesthetic merits of scruffy, 'lumberjack' Brady vs. cleanshaven, 'metrosexual' Brady. I'm so ashamed of us. And yet, I'd do it again.

I just wanted to make sure you were all reading that stuff, so go forth, my pretties, and engage your mind.

In the sporting blogosphere news, Meredith said hello to Donovan McNabb, the Detroit Tigers Weblog managed to scare the crap out of Tigers fans everywhere by posting a chronological analysis of Magglio Ordonez' knee injury (never before seen in baseball, surely that is not a good sign?), the Cheap Seats chooses to torment us all with a running commentary of the Michigan/MSU basketball game (yeah, enjoy while it you can, Spartan fools. We still won the football game), and Athletics Nation gets an interview with Billy Beane that managed to completely blow my mind on several levels, not least of which was the fact that Billy Beane was actually completely willing to talk to a blogger. First Dave Dombrowski, then Beane. Next in line's got to be DePodesta, but after that... c'mon Theo, we're all waiting.

Billy Beane interview here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3. If you don't read any of what I linked to above, read this. It's just... gngh. Awesome.

To keep my parents happy, here's what I'm working on in drawing these days:

Yes, it is a cat skull with a toy mouse in its mouth.

It'll be a whole series of animal skulls with things either in their mouths or near them that they would, in life, gnaw upon. We had to pick a verb, see, and somehow illustrate it. My verb is 'gnaw', so I'm doing this series of drawings. It's cool, I went and sat in the Natural History museum for a ridiculously long time on Friday drawing various mammal skulls. Gonna take me forever, due to my obsessive penwork, but in the end it should, at least, not suck. I can't say it'll be any good, but lack of overt suckitude is pretty good for me these days.

And to close, I will give you the best email I have received this semester, hands down. The art school forwards us emails of people who want a photographer or a designer or whatever, and this is one that we got today.

Subject: Need to borrow kitten for an art project!
Hello all,
I am an Art and Design student looking to borrow a kitten for a project.  I known this sounds somewhat shady and strange, but please DO NOT WORRY!  THE PROJECT IS UTTERLY HARMLESS - I would sooner shoot myself in the foot, twice, before I
would hurt an innocent kitty.  I won't be doing anything abnormal to the kitten either, so you won't have to worry about me slapping stickers on him or dressing him up in outfits or anything odd like that.  The kitten merely has to be his/her kitten-like self.

I WILL be taking the kitten out in public and showing him to persons, so the kitten must be comfortable around people - I'll also need a cat carrier to transport him/her in (obviously).

I will only need the kitten for one day for the project.  As I'd prefer to keep the project a secret, I won't reveal details in this e-mail, but I will explain everything if you wish to know more.

Again, the kitten's safety is my first piority.  If you are willing to lend a kitten, but feel uncomfortable about certain aspects of my project, please let me know and I will try to adjust my ideas accordingly.


Oh Colleen. I only wish I had a kitten to lend.
