luck of the draw

my fortune

So last weekend I had my fortune told at a bar for the price of a beer. It seemed like a fair enough price. I was told The World was my future... cool. Anyway, the last couple days I've been meditating on what it means to send good thoughts out into the world in general and the trickiness of judgment. Sean "P Diddy" Combs was on the Ellen show the other day. Ellen pressed him for letting the punk Chris Brown (a correct judgment, I think) use his house in Florida as a place for him and Rhianna to make up or whatever. P Diddy was all, "I just want to send positive vibes, goodness into the world. blah blah blah." And Ellen's response was basically, "I get that, but I don't want girls thinking its okay for men to hit them."

Here's my question, do good vibes count when they're laced with righteous violence? For example, my good vibes come in the form of a small legion of microscopic warriors that know karate and battle things like wife beaters and cancer cells alike. Who am I kidding.... I'm okay with this combination of good and bad. I guess its all luck of the draw, initially anyway, and then how you move forward.

I should also add that I went to see Watchmen last night, which is probably influencing my good/bad vibes thought.... The movie was good, but entirely too long and with the most ridiculous sex scene. Ridiculous.
