If you're reading this blog post, then it should be obvious that I'm back! (Did ya'll miss me?)

My absence was preceded by the pending end of another semester of college-edumacation, and the subsequent arrival of The Girlfriend (part deuce: Orange County edition). We took a lil' trip to see "the fam" and enjoy sunny SoCal beaches, delicious Mexican cuisines, and random highways.

After a plethora of anecdotes that can hardly be strung together in a coherent sequence of events we returned from lackluster weather, fathers without clothing, and near-death experiences on Highway 1. (Side note: never take that road if you can. It's sketchy as fuck.) The journey itself was incredible, but left little time for blog-writing... until now.

I hope you are as excited as I am to return to your semi-regularly schedule bloggings from we here at Saboteur Academia! ("We" being me, myself, and I.) Stay-tuned for some thought-provoking posts, coming to you on the mostly daily!

News Feed Down the Chute

Courtesy of [Democracy Now!] Your eccentric bloghaust has found himself back "in the know" again. Since cable-television is a luxury to me in my college days, I've kind of lost touch with the world outside classrooms, text-books, and occasional Daily Show reruns.

However! Now I am reuniting with the greater goings-on, and feel obliged to post/comment on a few of the more astonishing stories I've discovered in the past few days.

If I Were I Would

I've been seeing this little survey making its rounds across the Facebooked interwebs, and I couldn't help but fill it out during one boring afternoon between classes.

Feel free to complete it yourself and post it in the comments section!

Romantic Comedy Rape Scene

I have been an avid fan of the Romantic Comedy genre of film since the first time I saw Love Actually one boring Christmas as all the goyim gathered around their trees... and I flipped the channels of my television through ABC, CNN, FOX, and HBO to HBO Spanish.

There's something about a British Romantic Comedy for American audiences dubbed into Spanish that just makes the cockles of my heart swell with sappy emotional responses.

However, that's not what I'm here to talk about.

I'm here to talk about a sinister and insidious case of good film genres gone wrong.
