these are not “special rights” these are fucking equal rights

RICHMOND, Virginia (AP) — Activists rallied in cities across the eastern state of Virginia to protest a new law that critics said could nullify legal contracts between same-sex couples.

The state law, which goes into effect Thursday, prohibits civil unions, partnership contracts or other arrangements “purporting to bestow the privileges or obligations of marriage.”

Critics said it could be used to nullify medical directives, wills, joint bank accounts and other agreements between gay and lesbian couples.

“[The law] clearly states that gay and lesbian people in this state should not feel welcome,” said Dyana Mason, executive director of Equality Virginia, the state’s largest gay rights organization. “It seeks to strip the only tool that gay and lesbian couples have to protect their families.”

Mason spoke at a rally in Richmond on Wednesday that drew more than 400 gay and lesbian activists and supporters to the Capitol grounds. Simultaneous rallies were held in Norfolk, Charlottesville, Fredericksburg, Fairfax, Staunton and Roanoke, drawing more than 1,000 people.

Virginia Attorney General Jerry Kilgore has said the law provides a needed safeguard for the institution of marriage, and does not deprive anyone of rights to enter into contracts such as wills or other agreements between homosexual couples.

But Gov. Mark R. Warner, a Democrat, issued a statement condemning the law, which he refused to sign.

“This law raises serious constitutional issues and it places Virginia outside the mainstream of other states when it comes to respecting individual liberty,” he said.

Kent Willis, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia, said his group was working with others to legally challenge the law. He said it was so vaguely worded that it could be used against heterosexuals of the same sex who enter into legal agreements with each other.

Kilgore has vowed to defend the law if challenged.

The conservative Family Foundation said in a statement that gay rights groups are “willing to frighten and mislead their supporters simply to further their own political agenda.”

“All the rallies in the world won’t change the fact that this law passed with a bipartisan supermajority of the General Assembly,” said Victoria Cobb, spokeswoman for the group.

So last night the part of TimBomb was played by yours truly. I hung out at the Model, and played Buck Hunter II. We had a nice 3 person game going, until I took my hoodie of and the young woman we where playing with (and who was kicking our ass) asked, “do you have a naked alien on your arm?. Fuck people love Barbara…

Earliar that night I did “security” at the ICC at the Silverstein and Hawthorne Heights show. Now I know you are thinking who the fuck are those bands… and there are several reason why you woulnd’t know… the main one being you’re not 15 years old. So as you may guess I really didn’t have to do much. I helped clean up and then Mike and I headed over to SPIKE’S to find that those fuckers where closed at 10:45pm. What the fuck is that, it clearly says now open until 1am all over the outside.

I have a beard. almost

Looks like I may be making this fucking trip this weekend. Fuck me man…
Looks like I have to drive 6000+ CDs to our distributors hub in Memphis. Maybe I’ll go to Graceland.

This is one of the three releases I will be driving…
I’m pretty excited about how it turned out. The colors here aren’t accurate and the back and front match…
OUTBREAK are amazing. Check them out….

My body is rejecting me this week.
Myabe I shouldn’t drink from the fucking buckect of ice coffee that Kenn24 for made, the strongest thing I have ever tasted, I didn’t dare combine it with the ice coffee ice cubes that he made…

A trip to Target last night yielded a glue gun and some fabric glue. Finally fixed the fucking huge ass whole in my jeans…

“Under sad stars in dingy bars
We turn away we tear apart
One drop of grace distant and safe
They cannot touch you where you are
Cold shafts of rain falling dark gray
Falling so far they can’t be saved
They cannot hurt you anymore
Here underneath these sad sad stars”

I am sitting here shaking…

I can hardly even walk.
I have no idea what’s wrong with me.

UPDATE:
I think my caffeine to food ratio was way off the mark, making my head and balance very shotty…
lots of water and some time and I was better

I will never settle…

So tonight Kenn24, Ezra and I went to Home Depot and I bought some O rings. For some reason I think it’s still 1996 and think piercings are cool (actually I don’t I just don’t mind my ears). I was playing with on of the O rings in Ezra’s car and lost it…so I had to go buy some more. Kenn24 bought some wood with which he planes to have a door for his room in a couple of days. With the scraps of said wood I am going to build a nice display for Kubericks, Dunny’s, Bearbrick’s, and assorted other things that I should of gotten over when I was 13.

From there we went to Cara’s to get here. We tried to fix her car window which conviently was stuck on the down position. Not a good thing in her neighborhood…

we went and got Burritos (when we walked in the where playing Neutral Milk Hotel, which made me a little sad)
and then walked around Newbury Street…
On the way home we where listening to FNX and they played Kenn and Ezra’s band (THE POWER & THE GLORY). We laughed for a good while…

Super Stop & Shop has some new cookies…
Chocolate Chip with icing in the middle
fucking yumm.
