The Great Target Hack of 2013

Did you swipe a card of any sort* at a Target store between November 27 and December 15 2013? Did you know that some clever hacker now has all the data from your cardswipe? Are you feeling lucky, punk?

*credit cards, debit cards, and Target Redcards both credit and debit are all included.

Will you post an offbeat holiday song?

Maybe we can shirk some of the blues from melodies you may be sick of hearing, or the torment of the holidays if they feel to be suffocating you, can you recommend a ridiculous or an unorthodox tune in the spirit of this time of year?

I forgot I ever knew the second one!

And when are the science fiction franchises of today going to get their act together and finally realize the pure pop potential they're wasting?!

Not to mention all those lazy hobbits and elves avoiding the glamrock limelight & festive hats!
*Leonard Nimoy aside, of course.

What do I do about this religious war, TQC?!

Collapse )

In a nutshell, we are on the verge of having a major falling-out yet AGAIN over the matter of religion. I've bitten my tongue until I can hardly bear to bite it anymore. And I hate to see how all of this has changed my sister - when she was raising her kids on the farm (the quintessential 1970s earth mama) she was an atheist and very happy-go-lucky. Since she was "saved" she has become the most depressed person I know. She can hardly wait for death because she wants to "be with Jesus forever". And of course she really hopes and believes that Jesus will return "in our lifetime".

What would you do in this situation, TQC? Keep biting your tongue or finally blow your stack and let the chips fall where they may?
