All ye would be engineers of language, ye fight not a losing battle but a battle that is already lost

Language doesn't work that way.

The name is not the cause of the contempt; rather, the name takes on the contempt toward the named.

The main syntactic problem is to determine whether the fuck is being used as an [sic] pleonastic (semantically empty) direct object of shut or as a pre-head modifier of the preposition phrase (PP) headed by up... And I think we can — Geoff Pullum

This weekend is the Taste of Seattle. Who wants to go?

This being among among the many things I've been procrastinating or forgetting to post about. I'm really starting to think I should just break down and get a twitter account.

... and I haven't seen any one in a while.

Any of the local crowd want to go to a movie, celebrate the 2nd anniversary of Seattle's greatest store, or hang out in general this Saturday?

UPDATE:

I'm tentatively going to suggest Transformers at 1:05 pm at the Bellevue IMAX.

Also, I never realized there were three Ts in /tɛnətɪvli/!

Hearts cannot feel emotions

England[AP]- You do not feel with your heart horrible cold-hearted scientests announced yesterday, saying this to make up for their own inability to love.

The bad science men explained that the heart can only pump blood and if you feel sad or joyful that is your brain and not your heart. Whether tears come directly from the heart is still uncertain despite the meddling of these pathetic robot-like men who can feel nothing but jealously for normal people.

I hate these scientest men, I hate them with my heart.

I have begun the process of doing something which should have been done a long time ago. After all, it's how things are done these days:

My undergraduate advisor told me she'd never taken a databases course that wasn't horrifically boring. I have no reason to doubt her, and my own experience concurs that the subject is intrinsically soporific.

But still, we shall see...

For a while now I've heard very good things about the feature-length, mythological, autobiographical, animated, musical, one-woman production Sita Sings the Blues. It hasn't seen release due to copy right restrictions on the songs, but it's now available online. I finally watched it and it deserves all the praise it's getting.

If you have some free time to spare, you should definitely watch it.

That people are always declared to be irrational because they fail to act according to some model of rationality? It's never the model that's at fault, is it?
