This is a test...

Is it wrong that I think this is funny?

Lisa Loeb

Remember her? She had that song, you know, that one song, from that one movie, with those people in it, but in the video she was all by herself looking sad.

I guess she's on a reality show now trying to find a boyfriend or something. No more Zappa?

This is from the show: I'd watch this show!

Maybe I'll get cable now.

I'm shocked!

Apparently Jonathan Sharkey, AKA "The Satanic gubernatorial candidate from Minnesota" was arrested on some outstanding warrants.

I think God was behind these trumped up charges. I smell conspiracy.

The Hell Is This?

As if a talking car and taking credit for the Berlin Wall falling weren't enough - someone has completely lost it now.

Germans are fucking nuts

Holy god - It's Horrifying

This why the retarded kids shouldn't be serving food.
(Also, is that THE Dick Sargent that did this drawing? If so - wow -
and if not, still - wow.)

A virtual littany of unappetization.

Pork & beans or tiny little maifestations of the souls of the damned?

Head Cheese

Head cheese, also called souse and brawn, is a jellied loaf or sausage. Originally it was made entirely from the meaty parts of the head of a pig or calf, but now can include edible parts of the feet, tongue, and heart. The head is cleaned and simmered until the meat falls from the bones, and the liquid is a concentrated gelatinous broth. Strained, the meat is removed from the head, chopped, seasoned and returned to the broth and the whole placed in a mold and chilled until set, so it can be sliced.

How To Do What You Love.

It might be a little simplistic, but worth a read.

I found it via Lifehacker which often has helpful little tips on a variety of subjects. This seemed oddly appropriate today.



Police are checking every outhouse steakhouse and bathhouse in the area.
Maybe they should do a stakeout at the YMCA, like in that movie; the one with Richard Dreyfuss and Emilio Estevez... what was the name..?

thanks to Guy, for his generosity in sending me the original story that was the inspiration for this post. The very notion that I would forget to give credit where credit was due fills me such remorse that I can barely, blah blah blah...

More Old School Time Wasters!

I feel like it's 1976 and I'm at Regal Lanes in Orange playing Tank.
Good times, Good times.

But Regal Lanes has been closed for years.
So sad

The Intermanet Can Be Funny

It was on VH1's Web Junk show, and for some damn reason it makes me lose it every time I watch it.

I just wanted to post something, while I have a spare moment.
I'm gonna be working tomorrow (Saturday), which sucks because I was looking forward to sleeping in, then going to see my good friend Guy, and my buddy Mr. Kane. It seems this is not to be.

The client is a nice guy and appreciates my sacrifice. My bosses think that they should be able to expect this from their loyal and grateful slaves.
Uh employees.

Since I'm still new at the old 9-5 grind (9 to 7 is standard here) I can't decided if I'm a trooper, a team player or a sap.

Would you go ahead and come on in on Saturday (Office Space reference) if you weren't even that wild about where you worked anyway? After all, I got nothing to prove to these philistines!! However, my innate work philosophy means that I take a swift kick to the chops at times like this, and I have made sacrifices before for work over private life.

Is this wrong? Am I screwing up by not establishing and maintaining healthy boundaries? Seriously, I'm interested in what folks think... Discuss.

Cheese Friday!

It's just that simple.

Odd Link, from Scott F.

Here I am, sitting on Jason's couch do a power media session (ReplayTV, internet, IM, bittorrent) when our good buddy Scott F pops online, drops this link on me and splits.


It's odd, very odd. Not for everybody, but you might like it.

Minnesota is funny.

Satanist runs for governor in Minnesota

Minnesota gubernatorial candidate Jonathan Sharkey prefers to be known as "the Impaler".

Like other politicians, he worships Satan, but Sharkey "doesn't hide his dark side." He claims to speak for the "Vampyres, Witches and Pagans," political party, and most likely does so in a scary-monster voice. He promises that if he's elected, he will impale terrorists on pikes.

Of all the photos on Mr. Sharkey's candicacy website, this is my favorite. The sword says "forceful," the white home siding and unkempt grass says "America," and the long hair and Celtic batik wrap say "Rock and Roll, hoochie coo." That's my kind of overlord. Oh, and happy Friday the Thirteenth!
Link (Thanks, Neujack)

Reader comment: Dustin says,
Looks like Sharkey's got a myspace profile. From the looks of things, our dark governor-to-be needs our support! Link

Cheese Friday: It's good!

Inspired mac and cheese dishes push beyond the comfort zone
By CeCe Sullivan
Seattle Times Food staff

There are lots of reasons one could choose to eat macaroni and cheese tonight. For instance, you may feel happy and content. What better way to celebrate?

Or, you might feel sad and depressed. What better way to console yourself?

But perhaps the most pressing reason is that tomorrow, or the day after, you're beginning the post-holiday diet that was penciled onto your list of resolutions for the new year.

Loosing a few pounds was on my own list. But then "Macaroni & Cheese" by Marlena Spieler (Chronicle Books, $16.95) landed on my desk. One look at the cover photograph — a mound of golden, molten cheese enveloping small cylinders of pasta in a royal-blue bowl — and I was lost.

A few years ago I would have thought this was hilarious. Now I just think it's sad.

What actually keeps us going is being
able to look around and think,
"If someone else can do it, maybe I can too."
--Garrison Keillor

Sometimes you see a quote and you love it, usually it makes you laugh or smile and you 'get it'. Sometimes you read a quote and you 'get it' but you don't smile. Sometimes you just get a sense of relief that other people feel the same way you do. Sometimes you 'get it' but the fact that it is a profoundly sad thing (at least as far as you are concerned) just makes you a bit sad.

Okay, I'm talking about me.
