We here at ThatGuyThatReviewsStuff.com offer a warm welcome to our newest writer, Emmnesia. Emmnesia enjoys politics and no doubt we can expect many political posts from her in the future. I’m sure you will all join me in welcoming Emmnesia to our little group of writers and hope that she enjoys her time with us!
Well, I fell asleep waiting for the vote, then argued with Benny over whether to sleep or have coffee. I chose sleep, and thankfully, the vote ended up being “No”. I’m pleased. Yes, I said I was pro-independence, but in all honesty, given the lack of people voting, I prefer a no to a yes.
I’ve only just woken up myself, so I don’t know a lot about it all, so for your information needs, I suggest looking here, on the BBC news website.
Good evening to you all – I have approximately 9 minutes to write this before my Fray Bentos Pie finishes cooking (late tea for me tonight…), so I’ll keep this short. In approximately 28 minutes, the voting stations will close, the news at 10 will start, and I will be eagerly awaiting the results of the vote. Now, to be fair, I’ll be on the laptop, entertaining myself, whilst they count. I’d offer to help, but they’d be done before I got there, and to be honest, I would probably make a fuss of the whole ordeal.
For those of you with any interest in the vote, then I have two articles for you to read while you first. First, there is our article on the subject, written by Benny and I on Monday, which you can find here, or there’s this article by a friend of mine from college, about how a vote for independence, is a vote for a better society, which can be found here.
Like, share, comment, add me on skype and debate the subject with me, or sit at home masturbating. Whatever you do to pass the time before we find out if it’s an aye or a nay on the vote is entirely up to you, but whatever you do, enjoy doing it. These may be the last of days like this, or the start of a never ending line of them. Surely it’s better to remember the night it all stated?
Good morning to you all – as I type these words, the time is 01:29, on Thursday 18th September. I have work in 6 and a half hours, and right now, I can’t sleep. Well, I can, but Manfred Mann is playing on Spotify, and I’m reluctant to stop it…
In approximately 5 and a half hours, the polling stations will open, and the people of Scotland, no matter what their nationality, will begin to vote on whether they want to become an independent country or not. Benny and I wrote about our opinions on this vote HERE and if you haven’t read it, please do, ESPECIALLY if you have the chance to vote, but haven’t yet.
Now, despite having written that long article, I feel the need to do a very short piece, right here, to add a few minor points.
- No matter what happens, I’m becoming more and more aware that we’re on the edge of a cliff, and in all honesty, I don’t know whether it will be a yes or a no vote that will push us over the edge, but I do know that we’re only barely hanging on. I don’t want to fall off the edge – I’m actually in a fairly strong position in life, considering my age, even having some job security (something people my age should never even think about having!). The last thing I want is for whatever decision is made, to destabilize our lives, risking my future, and the future of my yet-to-be-born child.
- I still believe that democracy is being made a mockery of – according to BBC news, Scotland make up 4% of the UK’s electorate, meaning that this 4% is being given the power to make a choice which will HEAVILY impact the rest of the UK, when the 96% is unable to do anything but look on. THIS IS NOT DEMOCRACY!
- If you are in Scotland, and you have yet to vote, I ask only one thing – think about your vote, and if you don’t know what to do, don’t do anything. Just because everyone else is voting, you don’t necessarily have to. You can abstain. I’ll respect you either way, but please don’t vote for something you don’t believe in. Not this, not that, not even me. Please…
- Finally, whatever decision is voted for, I’ll be happy to support. I mean it. If the majority want something, I’ll be more than happy to let them have what they voted for. I’m an advocate for democracy, no matter what the outcome.
I may be live-blogging the news coverage of the “results”, so keep an eye out, and for everyone on either side of the debate, good luck. I truly mean that.
Ahh yes, Monster Mash (1962) that classic 1960’s novelty Halloween song that has since become a holiday classic. Surely Boris Pickett had only the nicest intention when he made wrote this song, aiming to create a piece of music that would bring joy to literally dozens of people and cement his place as a god of quirky horror music.
OR DID HE!?!?!?!?!?!?!!!?!????!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?
I know that, really, dear reader, you probably have very little interest in my small insignificant life. As far you are concerned, I am just a guy that writes the odd-review and shares his opinions on whatever takes his fancy, much less frequently than he would like to. Of course, that is easily remedied, or, less easily remedied. I could write more often, or better, or both, or even find a way to make you interested in my life.
Of course, I’m lazy, stubborn, and kind of in charge of what you see on here, so I’m going to write a bit about me, regardless of whether you care or not. I’m not going to make you read it, but if you do, then kudos to you for caring about me enough to read it. I will also be recommending my fellow writers do the same, although, with a less jackass start. We can hope, right? Continue reading
