Nobody anywhere has a copy of either the Meatballs or Sgt. Pepper Soundtrack (ya know the Bee-Gee one you like to pretend you hate but you always watch when its on t.v.)!

If I don't get either of these (or a cashier's check for $100,000) soon, there will be one very disenchanted young man on this blog. (Hint: it's not me, his name rhymes with Toby - I mean, oops...no wait - come back...)

Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!

You like raisins.

Cheese Friday: Revealing the man behind the curtain.

Expert explains grilled cheese 'miracle'

The Associated Press

November 18, 2004, 7:45 AM EST

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Brace yourself. There may be a less-than-miraculous explanation for that image of the Virgin Mary a Florida woman says appeared in her grilled cheese sandwich.

Professional skeptic Joe Nickell says it's the same phenomenon that lets people see ships in the clouds, butterflies in ink blots and the man on the moon.

Remember that elderly lady who showed Johnny Carson her collection of potato chips with celebrity faces? (And how Carson munched on a chip, letting her think for a moment it was one of hers?)

"It's just the human ability to make images out of randomness," said Nickell, investigative columnist for Skeptical Inquirer magazine and senior research fellow of the Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal.

"The images are called simulacra, from the root word meaning similar. And the mental habit that causes us to see such things is called pareidolia," he said.

Nickell has studied and written about such things for 30 years. He is among the thousands who have visited Maria Rubio's 1977 "holy tortilla" in New Mexico, the "Milton Madonna" on a Massachusetts hospital window pane, and the "Clearwater Virgin" on a building in Florida.

Diana Duyser of Miami put her grilled cheese sandwich up for sale on eBay last week. She said she took a bite after making it 10 years ago and saw a face staring back. Into a clear plastic box it went and has remained on her night stand, she said.

Nickell explained that pareidolia is the process by which the human brain interprets essentially random patterns into recognizable images.

"It doesn't take much to make a face. Three or four dots or marks and you've got something that looks like a face," he said.

Many simulacra are of religious images, he said, and "perhaps most often associated with Catholic or Orthodox tradition, wherein there is a special emphasis on icons or other holy images."

Most, he concluded, are the result of natural processes, such as weathering or the buildup of chemical residues.

"Theologians and clerics are usually quick to dismiss such images, one priest wisely attributing them to `pious imagination,"' Nickell said. "However, they remain intensely popular among the superstitious faithful."

Nickell added that the Easter Bunny exists in the wood grain of his office door.

I hate stuff.

The Life Aquatic with The Smart Patrol

I know its a little early but I wanted people to have a chance to make plans in advance. I'm taking Friday December 10th off from work to drive up to Los Angeles to see "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou". It's a little birthday present to myself.

So, if you don't work that day, or can arrange to not work that day, you should come along. (Justin, you're looking a little peaked, you OK buddy. *WINK. WINK.*)

If you're thinking, "Hey it's not worth taking a day off from work to see a movie."
I have three unarguable points to convince you:
  1. When is it ever not worth it, to take a day off? Work is for SUCKERS!

  2. It's for my 30th Birthday. I'm now officially old. (Like the rest of you.)

  3. This movie is gonna kick ass. Check out the website if you don't believe me. LifeAquatic.com

You're gonna love this movie so much, that if it were a TV show on FOX, they would cancel it before the first commercial break.

Man Buys Mouse, Goes 'tarded...

Guy went and bought himself a scrolling mouse. Not being used to a scrolling mouse he was immediately consumed with fear and began hitting the mouse with a broom. Later this evening Guy intends to burn the mouse on a stake for practicing heresy. Slow afternoon for you too?

NEWS OF THE ODD - Corpse Finds Love Online

SACRAMENTO (AP) - Recently deceased custodian, Denys Wygglehoffer 39 has finally found love, on the internetnet of all places.
Wygglehoffer was killed in October by a falling brick while on the job at the Sacramento Brick Emporium.
"Nesst dayy ee-mayul sennt gurrl pritty" said Wygglehoffer, referring to the e-mail that arrived from MaybeDate, a local online dating service that he had signed up with just a week earlier.
Merla Hawkins, a dental technician from White Oak was his exact match in a profile match performed at MaybeDate's main office.
In a bizarre coincidence, Merla is also recently deceased, having succumbed to a dire case of ricketts in August.
