Jessica Alba

Tomorrow, at this time, I will be holding my first child.

I want to say these words to my unborn son, I want to apologize to him for being born under such political corruption in this country, apologize for having him born under the regime of such evil political hatred the likes of which I've never seen.  I only hope that we can raise him with a good head on his shoulders, and he stays safe.

Man, I haven't even met this kid yet, been thinking about him non-stop for 9 months now but I really fucking love this kid.

Check these out, this song took on a whole new meaning:

Parker's Eyes by Redemption from the album "Snowfall On Judgement Day".  Perhaps THE best metal album of 2010.

Look at you
You haven't seen anything
Your eyes so white and pure
Without a trace of red
No signs of self-abuse there
And no tears have yet been shed
Just pure
Pure white eyes
Look at you
You don't know anything
Not what the towers looked like

On September tenth
And words like hate and death and politics
Mean nothing yet
They're sounds
They're only sounds
Once, long ago I was young
And I saw the world through innocent eyes
Like a child
But those memories are faded now
And all that I can see is our despair

Look at you
You don't fear anything
Not loss of job, or loss of faith
Or loss of self, you're not afraid
You're not afraid of anything
Not even death itself
Look at you
You haven't learned anything
Not all that people do
In every single way
To hurt each other, harm each other, kill each other every day
But you will
And nothing I can say or do will stop you
Once, long ago
We were young
And we saw the world through innocent eyes
Like a child
But those memories are faded now
And all that we can see is our despair
And now I finally understand
Why we're told to suffer the little children
They're what we were before we fell
Sweet un-ruined innocence
