A Fine Line - Between Chaos and Creation

Everybody seems to think I'm lazy; I don't mind, I think they're crazy...

So, I kinda slept in til 11:20 today. It was the longest sleep I think I've ever had, and it was long overdue. I haven't truly gotten to sleep in in a long time. The unfortunate thing, though, is that it kinda stole half my day away. :S (which is why I'm posting this now, rather than early afternoon like I originally planned)

At least I still managed to get some productivity in, though. I cleaned my room (which I haven't truly done since my first stint house-sitting back at the beginning of September), and I went to Wind Symph practice (where we all got the talk about how great our last concert was/how great the French group that played with us was), and got prepping for our next concert in 2 weeks.

As for non-productive activity today... I started reading Hetalia: Axis Powers for the lulz, and now I'm trolling people's FB posts about the election. Speaking of the election, it got me thinking.

If I could vote, I've decided my vote would go to the Dread Cthulhu, High Priest of the Great Old Ones.

Think about it - If I'm going to hate the way someone rules over me, I want the leader to at least be obvious about their contempt and distaste for the human race, rather than hide it with slimy pandering to certain demographics.

Hence why my vote would go toward him. Cthulhu won't lie or candy-coat about potentially enslaving us all, and making it unpleasant. He will treat everyone with the same amount of antagonism, as he will most rightly see himself as being above all mankind.

While he apparently isn't evil, per se, he's considered more amoral, with an ethic that transcends conventional notions of good and evil. Monstropedia's article on Cthulhu says that "in most mythologies, man's significance in the universe is validated by his connection to divine agents with similar moral values. Lovecraft shattered this conceit by basing his stories on the "premise that common human laws and interests and emotions have no validity or significance in the vast cosmos-at-large... To achieve the essence of real externality, whether of space or time or dimension, one must forget that such things as organic life, good and evil, love and hate, and all such local attributes of a negligible and temporary race called mankind, have any existence at all... When we cross the line to the boundless and hideous unknown—the shadow haunted Outside—we must remember to leave our humanity and terrestrialism at the threshold." Cthulhu's nature seems to be consistent with this view."

With that said, my catchphrase is still "Cthulhu for Supreme Overlord 2012 - why vote for a lesser evil?"

Who did YOU vote for?
