Stumbled onto the party tonight and can't imagine why I haven't been here already...

Would it be possible for me to be the Campaign Speech Writer and Espionage Consultant?

Long live the regime change!

A new sister site? [10 Jul 2004|04:08pm]

It seems that there's another Presidential candidate who may be having inappropriate relations with his VP.


Kerry/Edwards is love.



A Sister Community perhaps? *giggles*

Well, that was a website. I dunno if it still is now. But its an organization for...macedonians!

Check it out, I found it enlightening.

My brother's friends just said that a sarissa was 30-40 feet long.

[Note: Sarissa was primary weapon of the phalanx-guys. Think long spear implented by Philip and Alexander.]

Does that sound illogical to you?

Or am I completely brain damaged?

Anyway, I feel insulted by their stupidity.

ATTENTION! Can I have your attention please everyone! Yes, that's it, look this way. Right, now you're all listen...ALEXANDER! STOP THAT IMMEDIATELY! I'm sure Hephaestion doesn't want you to...Oh. Maybe he does. That's it: Detention! I'll see you both in my rooms later, and we'll discuss this hot buggery shameful display. Now, where's my good cane...

Buggery aside *snigger*, I would like to offer my...services as Official Slasher and Royal Loofah Holder (a vital post, obviously. Someone has to make sure that the boys are washing everywhere. Everywhere). I feel I am excellent suited to both these positions as:

a) I will never tire of reading about the short-skirted hotness or watching, I mean standing servilely with my loofah, beside the short-skirted hotness.

b) I'm already doing it (well, except the loofah holding, though not for want of trying)

To demonstrate my devotion to the post of Official Slasher, I give you slash, by the lovely Lady Alyssa and Random Dent.

In much the same vein, I also offer up some loofahs.

c) My birthday is the same day as Alexander's (20th July), which won't actually help me carry out my role, but is cool as all get out.

d) I'm an obsessive classics student and know the location of the Alexander film website.

e) I have a list of reasons, for goodness sake! If that's not devotion, I don't know what is! :D

So, to sum up, I want in.

Please?

[ mood | productive ]

We have crap generic junk merchandise!

Yes, that's right. I finally worked out what I was doing wrong (mostly *shakes fist defiantly at CafePress*) with the images, so now we have stuff. There are t-shirts and thongs and bunnies with four different slogans. Each free shop is only allowed to have one style of each item, so if you want a different slogan on an item than what appears, tell me and I'll make one up in a different shop for you. ^_^

And I've priced all the items at the lowest I'm allowed; I'm not making a dime, so if the prices are ridiculous, don't come crying to me. ;)

Also, I have found myself utterly unable to get any sort of sticker to work for me; the designs always come out very small. I don't know why, but I'm rather miffed because bumper stickers would have been very useful. We could have gained a lot of votes by cutting people off on the interstate. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears. Er, eyes. Er, I'm all perception.

Oh, and even if you don't really want to buy anything, I've provided snarky commentary on each item to keep those of us who are too poor for this sort of thing amused.

I should like to propose myself as official Tongue Content Guarantor to the New World Order party.

How many times have we been subjected – typically through the medium of film – to the sight of two young men purporting to be desirous of each other, only to witness them indulging in a ludicrous mockery of physical affection? I do, of course, refer to the practice of boys/men Kissing Without Tongue. I do not mean a kiss on the cheek but the deceitful practice of lustfully locking lips, pretending to explore one another's tonsils, while in fact keeping one's tongue strictly in one's own mouth.

Our candidates are, I feel, extraordinarily media-savvy: they know how hot they look and are prepared to deploy said hotness as a political battering ram in their election campaign.* Appearance is all and in this world where the typical voter is both a quite sophisticated consumer of media products and quite sceptical of politicians' integrity, I feel it is crucial that our candidates radiate genuine intention in every action they undertake.
Therefore, every photo opportunity and TV clip in which they are featured displaying physical affection for each other should contain Genuine Tongue Content.
I am happy to oversee the implementation of this strategy.
My motivation, I assure you all, purely relates to ensuring our party's electoral success and has nothing whatsoever to do with any desire on my part to see our candidates getting hot and heavy with each other as often as possible.

I am also quite happy to add Cultural Attache to Ireland to my portfolio. However, as I feel physical displays of slashy hotness may well prove crucial to our candidates' electoral success, I envisage my role as TCG taking up a substantial portion of my time. I will therefore be happy to relinquish my Attache role to a suitably qualified individual also based in Ireland should the need arise.

I hereby humbly offer my services as Tongue Content Guarantor to the Macedonian Party of the United States. I urge you to express your approval/disgust for this proposal by Casting Your Vote.
Thank you for your attention.

*Some may cruelly infer that this is to compensate for a lack of sound policy. I say f*ck it – slashy hotness and brilliant military strategy worked the first time around; if it ain't broke, why fix it?

Clarification! [28 Feb 2004|08:57am]

earis
[ mood | working ]

There has been some confusion today about the whereabouts of our candidates. Some have expressed concern that they are here. They have confused the Macedonian party with a country who can't even think up their own name and has resorted to stealing the name from a neighboring country in a desperate attempt to leech glory and history from a more well-known country. Alexander and Hephaistion have revealed that one of their primary foreign policy stances is that this stupid country will be forced to change its name to something more approprate and historically suitable.

In fact, the candidates are in Hudson, NY where they are the instigators behind this. They are not getting married however. The cadidates have decided to get married after the election so they can spend their honeymoon engaging in private acts in every room of the White House.

They recieved this excellent idea from their proposed head of the CIA, Lex Luthor, and their proposed head of security, Clark Kent.

In recent tabling for the Macedonian candidacy, my lackeys recieved 69 signatures of support. We felt that that was the optimal number of signatures, and called it a day.

Always room for learning something new... [21 Feb 2004|12:42am]

niarchos
Wow, what a world it would be if Alexander the Great hadn't died of a broken heart (or typoid as some unenlightened anal-historophobes would like you say). The beautiful architecture, free-exploration of knowledge, un-taboo sex and really hot Greeks in skirts. I have to admit to my fellow enlightened, who I'm sure are just as willing note that to admit ignorance is simply a quest to better yourself, that I've never heard of the Mel Gibson Mini Series, Mary Renault or the Iron Maden song. BUT I CAN'T WAIT TO CHECK THEM OUT! I'm also kind of excited to check out the new Mel Gibson Jesus movie (even though it's about a religion that forever banished Alexander's ideals for a new world of culture and grace). I'm not a freak or some mental 'tard who lives in a delusional fantasy land (ok, maybe just a little) but ancient Greece/Macedonia, or whatever you want to call it, and Alexander was the last true civilization and the last true leader the world's ever seen and as far as I'm concerned the ideals therein are still very much alive somewhere below the surface of the mess we've created. Bush, Kerry, Kusinich...bring it on, this is the age of Aquarius and we're tired of being forced to live behind a wall of false idols and blind ignorance. Alexander and Hephaestion will forever govern the laws for my life.

Am I aloud to do an intro?

Ah well, I am anyway.

I am a recent convertee to the Greatness that is Alexander, Western Civ. was a road of enlightenment :D

[ok, so I was intrigued by this man with the porcupine of doooooom ;p]

I'm a fan of Mary Renault's books, and spend free time reading Alexander of Macedon: A historical biography because I am a dork.

I can't wait for the movies... ^-^;

Does anyone know anything about the supposed Mel Gibson directed Fire From Heaven miniseries?

And has anyone heard "Alexander the Great" done by Iron Maiden? I'll try to get a link up if anyone wants it (kind of a funny song :D)

Hello all. I am in favor of freedom, justice and Mary Renault novels, so I figured I should join the Macedonian Party. Also, I thought y'all might be interested to know that Alexander the Great is a candidate today at useless_caucus, running against Al Sharpton.

Alexander's winning, of course, by the margin one would expect anyone born under the sign of a comet to be winning by. It might be worth voting anyway...

Icon Ideas [30 Jan 2004|02:52pm]

earis
Okay, so i can't make icons, but I know that there are some of you out there who can. So here are some icon bunnies, if you so desire to soend your time productively. (Hush, it is productive)

- Just a picture of our candidate, Alexander himself, with the text from Eddie Izzard, "I'm 32, I'm gay, and I'm on a role. Let's go!"

- Idea first proposed by the lovely rushthatspeaks, Have a picture of Dubya with the text "Skimmed Aristotle at Yale", than have a picture of A the G with text "Learned from Aristotle"

- Have a picture of A the G from the anime 'Reign' with our candidate pictured pantless and have the text "My fandom has no pants, my fandom needs no pants". Feel free to put the words "candidate" or "president" instead of fandom.

That's all. At some point I'm going to pull up a cast list of our candidate and everyone who has been helping, voluntary or not.

You all crack me up! No, seriously, I nearly broke my bf computer by spitting out my hot tea on it.

Can I be the executive in charge of random-allusions-to-the-theory-that-Alexander-thought-himself-like-Achilles and all-things-related-to-the-Iliad?

Oh, and as per the suggestion of campaign tee-shirts, I think that's a brilliant idea. Because we all know that there is no way anyone could beat out Alexander for the presidency.

Xairete everybody!

I just joined, so I'd like to introduce myself, although I have absolutely no idea how I ended up here (although I think it involved these brilliant campaign icons). I found this community about half a year ago and then lost the bookmark.

Anyway, about myself: As my name may or may not tell you, (depending on your familiarity with a book called "Le voyage de Théo"), I was once a greek goddess of wisdom and war. Unfortunately, during a fallout with my mother-in-law (who is not too fond of dad's escapades), I was turned into a penguin, and have since taken up residence in north-Germany due to climate issues. This metamorphose has unfortunately also affected my powers and my (now non-existing) wit, so pardon occasional (well, not-so-occasional, as witnessed above) stupidity.

Is there a place for a campaign-supporting goddess left?

Happy election year, everyone!

It's 2004, and that means that our inevitable defeat glorious victory is just eleven short months away. The primaries should be starting soon, and that means that we have to do something. I'm not sure what, since we're not having a primary as a write-in-vote-based party. Maybe spread the word, and make sure that people know just how unattractive the potential candidates for all of the other parties are. Especially George Bush, that ugly jackoff.

Anywho, I hope you all had a safe and pleasant New Year's, and here's to success in '04!

It seems that our favorite transvestite, Eddie Izzard, has been appointed executive transvestite for the Macedonian Party.
During a recent show (circle) he quoted Alexander announcing his candidacy, "I'm 32, I'm gay, and I'm on a roll. Let's go!"

Then he pointed out that Galadriel is the mother of Jesus.

[ mood | aggravated ]

Take heed! To all the members of the Macedonian Party, I would like it to be know that, contrary to the depiction of myself in the Japanese anime known as "Reign", I am NOT, and never have been, a GIRL.

Peter Chung and his crones would have it that I am a female warrior named 'Cassandra', but this is LIES, all LIES. I am entirely male. Alexander and Hephaistion have seen me bathe on numerous occassions, they can vouch for the truth of that.

I repeat: I AM NOT A GIRL. And I could beat Kleitus black-and-blue any day of the week, without having to cheat. So there. Hmmmph.

I'm a bit reluctant to get on my soapbox, but on the other hand it feels kind of good to have someth [26 Dec 2003|02:04am]

rex_dart
[ mood | happy ]

Yes, it's mod-post time!

First of all, I just want to say happy, if slightly belated, Christmas to those of you who are Christian (or just heathen clingers-on like myself). I also want to say welcome to those new members among us, and that I'm so, so pleased to see that our humble little party is growing like it is and filling up with such great (read: funny and intelligent) people.

Secondly, if I may knock down the fourth wall for a few minutes, I notice that we've had some RPers arrive; this is great, and it'll be nice to have the our boys putting in appearances in hypothetical person. However, as the (sort of) head of this little political lovefest, I'd like to know who's behind these, um, sockpuppety type things (for reference ^_^), and I want to just remind anybody who wants to assume a character persona to please stay as in-character as possible and please also notify me of whom you're going to play so that I may keep track of who's doing whom (but not like that). Remember, above all, that we want to avoid any scandal in these delicate primary stages of the election, especially those of the heterosexual sort.

Also, a note to Alex and Heph: I'm taking on the role of Political Consultant to the Candidates; this means, for example, that if for some reason we need to make a major political decision, like a stance on abortion or something (Zeus forbid; that would lose us so many voters), that I'd like to have a say in the matter before making any statements, and so might the rest of the party. Of course, smaller, not-as-political things like bath mats for the Oval Office washrooms and what kind of cold salads to serve at the Macedonian National Convention fall under the jurisdictions of our various and sundry Official-Sounding People.

That's about it! ^_^
