    Libra Horoscope for week of April 3, 2003 

    Your idealism is one of your greatest assets, but it can also be a liability. Driven to seek beauty and harmony, you sometimes become blind to the messy truth. That’s why I was so pleased to get the following oracle when I consulted the ancient Chinese book of divination, the I Ching, on your behalf: “It is only when you have the courage to face things exactly as they are, without any self-deception or illusion, that a light will develop out of events by which the path to success may be recognized.” I interpret this to mean that you are about to temporarily suspend your idealism in order to see the messy truth, which will in turn lead you to an opportunity to practice your idealism on a higher level.

    i really wanted to write this morning.

    i wanted to write about a lot of things, like clipper girl’s friend who came over last night to sleep with me.

    just sleep sleep not sexy sleep.

    i wanted to write about how sometimes thats nice but sometimes its torture cuz i havent had a beautiful love making session in like weeks and its killing me.

    i wanted to write also, maybe most importantly about an incredibly interesting debate that i had with several smart people about why it is that we in our blogs dont link to pay sites like Variety.com which is totally full of great information, and has a free trial period.

    some of my friends were saying that we link to other sites that charge money like Amazon or cdnow, or nay. And probably the best example is when people link to Salon.

    Salon might be a little different because all you have to do to read a particular article which might be the article of the moment (because Rabbit wrote it), all you have to do is click one ad and watch it for thirty seconds.

    But I argued that a lot of times if i get to the Washington Post and they even ask for my birthday that i wont read the article because fuck the Washington Post for wanting to know my birthday.

    Chris says she just lies when they ask, but i dont feel comfortable lying.

    Anyhow, i would like you all to do me a favor, one of the few favors that I will ask from you before the Tsar cd comes out this fall. Do me a favor and sign up for the free trial on Variety.com because i would like to talk about some of the information in there and i wouldnt want you to be frustrated when i wrote about it.

    Also, if you have a blog, let me know in the comments here: do you link to pay sites? would you? should you?

    i am seriously interested in your feedback in this matter.

    now it’s time for me to make a sandwich for my lunch.
