Spam email, I can filter out more than 99.9% of the time. Telemarketing calls are no longer an issue thanks to that wonderful DNC list. But no matter how hard I try, I can't seem to prevent any of the junk mail that gets delivered every day to my mailbox (and to my mother's mailbox; thanks WIU for selling my address to anyone who asks). I've called the main offenders repeatedly with requests to be taken off their lists. I've told them Scott Hardie moved away and the new resident doesn't want his mail. I've returned the first-class junk mail to sender, unopened. I've sent a postcard to the DMA to be put on their mail preference service. None of it fucking worked. I still get an average of 2 items of junk mail every day. The worst is the oversized coupon books sent out every Wednesday by a local company here in Tampa; they are so big that my mailbox can't be closed with one inside, and those bastards have so far ignored five requests from me to stop already for the love of Christ. So, I turn to you for help: Do you know of any other means of stopping this deluge of unwanted crap from landing at my door every morning?

Harry Potter and the Power of Myth

Part of my long commentary on "Harry Potter" (see next entry) was a comparison of the movie, which is my only frame of reference since I haven't read any of the books, to Lord Raglan's list of the 22 standard elements of myth. Go »
