Blog post for anyone who wonders what I want for christmas ;)

Ok ok ok... More of a "fun" post so to speak because seriously, I don't even really expect x-mas presents these days... Not that I'm so negative about life, but x-mas is expensive and I'm not going to go around actually asking for stuff! lol... But anyway, just in case anyone reading my blog is actually looking for present ideas (particularly rich distant relatives), here's my amazon wish list! Enjoy :)

What is wrong with people these days...

PORTLAND, Maine - Pupils at a city middle school will be able to get birth control pills and patches at their student health center after the local school board approved the proposal Wednesday evening.

So let me get this straight... "Hey, we as parents feel we're completely unable to control our kids... So lets give them birth control pills when they're 11 so they think they're safe to have as much sex as they want, and end up with a horrible std at an early age".

You have to be kidding me right?  I mean I do tend to be fairly liberal on most stuff (ok, family life is where I get more conservitive), but there comes a point in time when you need some sanity... We're talking about kids between the ages of 11 and 13 here, they really will have no idea about what all sex means, really there's no way they could... So why not just make Sex Ed required, perhaps set up meetings with parents to help them better deal with these issues with their kids, and try our best to actually keep kids this young from starting to have sex when they can't possibly be ready for it....

Personally, for me this probably wouldn't be as big a deal for an High School (yes they start at 14, but they get older from that point), but the line really needs to be drawn somewhere... Before you know it we'll be giving preschoolers birth control patches/pills.

On tv anyway... Over the weekend Kathy showed me a great new show on TV called Moonlight that I actually had not heard of at all. The show has a really great sense of humor, with some pretty good action and some well written stories, a great combo over all if you ask me. Honestly I'd say it really reminds me of Forever Knight (if you don't know this show run out to walmart and buy as many seasons as you can find now)!

It's on CBS (I think, I'm not good with local channels anymore), the one with the eye at any rate. I've got it all set up to tape in HD so I can enjoy it on the fancy new TV. So everyone, go out and watch moonlight on friday... I couldn't tell you what time it's on because I tape everything on the DVR and watch it later, but I'm sure can help ya out :)

What is happening to the world wide music industry?

Got this from slashdot...

"The Performing Rights Society, one of the UK's royalties collecting societies, has taken a Scottish car servicing company to court because the employees are alleged to have been listening to the radio at work, allowing the music to be 'heard by colleagues and customers'. The PRS is seeking £200,000 in damages for the 'performances of the music' which they claim equates to copyright infringement. The judge, Lord Emslie, has ruled that the case can continue to hearing evidence, commenting that the key point to note was that music was 'audibly blaring from employee's radios'. Where do the extents of a 'public performance' end? Radios on in cabs?"

Anyone remember back when it was considered normal to have the radio going on the job? If things keep going the way they are I expect my kids to lean over me and ask why the employee's in whatever "old school" movie aren't being sent to re-education camps for playing the radio at work :P
