Yes, I Always End Up Quoting The Communist Manifesto

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2006 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

The most intellectually stimulating part of Jesus is Magic (that's not saying much) is now available on YouTube: Silverman's song "Jewish People Driving German Cars".

Also on YouTube: videos from Square One TV, specifically Mathnet. Mathnet, Weird Al Yankovic, and the Capitol Steps all introduced me to melodies, plots, and characters that I only learned later were ripoffs. Disorienting, which is good. Reminds you that all that is solid melts into air.
