I remember buying the Jethro Tull Christmas Album.
Quite a lame experience given that I wasn't a huge fan of Christmas carols but I was of Jethro Tull.
Although since I found Jethro Tull Radio hearing the Christmas Album isn't as awesome.
Mostly because many of those songs appeared on other albums and they get a fair bit of play.
Especially Christmas Song and Another Christmas Song.

I've been thinking about Hostess going out of business.
Whether labor or management is to blame is a moot point because a lot of people are losing their jobs and a cultural product is going away.
Still there's a group better off because of the failing of that company and that doesn't seem right.

It night not be Butt Rock but I'm fucking sick of this song.
Kind of like Rascal King by the Mighty Mighty Bostones.
I owned a game where that was a featured track.
By "featured" I mean it was played near constantly over the course of a level.
...Still Rogue Trip was fun.

Ahh Devil's Panties.
Maybe not my favorite comic but one I've been following for years.
I do like the autobiographical nature of it.
But the problem with it, and growing up in general, is the whimsy of early episodes was lost.
Like the brown squirrel one.
Man that makes me laugh even today.

Seems like most blockbuster feel they warrant a midnight release line.
I don't agree with this practice.
First off you need something that fires up a subgroup.
Star Wars does that well.
Still I doubt any of these people missed a month of work to see Lucas' Masterpiece.
But I could be wrong.

I have a slight fear that this might be tried on the Burke Gilman Trailbik.
Right now Cyclists hate giving way to pedestrians and during summer, with all the casual cyclists, it got really tough.
Then again when a gaggle of pedestrians walk 4 abreast taking over the whole trail they're being jerks.
And I can't drive my car down it.
... As Lincoln said, "You can please some of the people all the time and jerk the rest off."

I feel Lucas has enough of my money.
Not to sat some of my money may not end up in his pocket in the future but for right now I'm going to let the whole Star Wars thing go.
It's great because of what we bring to it but I don't see any reason to have a "Read More You Must" Day.
Then again I got into reading when I picked up Goosebumps by R.L. Stein so I shouldn't judge.
And there's worse things to read.

I found myself cruising Wikihow and wondering about the people that write these entries.
Are they the ones that live in infomericals that have problems with everyday things.
Like opening cans, making beds, or using a soda fountain.
Maybe this is a joke.
A really elaborate joke that contains the instructions instructions:
1.Pay for the Soda at the Counter
2. Place the empty cup, hole side up, under the ice dispenser and use the cup to apply gentle pressure to the activating lever.
3.Decide which drink you want, then use your cup to push the activating lever directly below your drink of choice
4.Hold the glass (with the ice in it) under one dispenser at a time if you are going to mix sodas, or under just the one of your choice if you are only going to get one
5.Select the size cover or lid meant the size drink you paid for and place it on the cup securely.
I never would have guessed... really never would have.
And warnings... and tips... man alive Wikihow you amuse me to no end.

Seen these off and on for a while now.
Some get a chuckle.
Most require an search to know what they are referring to.
I get this one.
Also regret not being the flight path as the Shuttle went to LA.
Sad days but I plan to see it when I go south... at some point.

I discovered webcomics in late '99 or early '00.
Finding Penny Arcade via a link on Gamespy.
Most were video game comics and quite nerdtacular.
Also most were pretty dull.
I did the standard rounds between Penny Arcade, Megatokyo, Mac Hall, RPG World a few others that have long since vanished.
Then I found a couple gag a day ones.
Of those Exploitation Now was my favorite.
I caught really early in it's run and was with it until the end.
While I liked the way Poe ended it I hoped he'd go back to it.
I didn't get into Errant Story but feel I should have but I couldn't help comparing it to Exploitation Now.
( Give it a read )
Thank you Scandinavia and the World you have taught me so much about the Nordics.
At first it was which countries flags those were at Fred Meyer in Ballard but later it was my own cultural prejudices.
Also introducing me to odd and different music like this.

That is the only qualified police office in Vaughn New Mexico.
This isn't some joke like the dog and cat mayors that crop up but a real tale of poor choices and corruption.
Nikka, a drug sniffing Belgian Malinos, is now top dog and sole officer of the Vaughn Police Department after chief Chris “Ernest” Armijo resigned Wednesday amid revelations he couldn’t carry a gun because of a felony conviction in neighboring Texas.
The only other human on the force, Brian Bernal, was convicted of battery in 2010 and was never certified or trained to be a police officer, town officials told KRQE. Noncertified officers can’t make arrests and can’t carry firearms.
That left Nikka, a fully credentialed, highly trained and sociable canine officer purchased this year with money borrowed from the New Mexico Finance Authority. However, Armijo never completed a required certification to handle her
Past all the humor of the sole office being a dog it's really a pretty tragic tale.
It's amusing to read but also the consequences could be pretty bad.

Oddly enough I remember reading this some years ago.
Not sure when or where but since I don't wear a bra it didn't really sink in.
Yet when I read it again it on Busty Girl Comics I had an, "Oh yeah I remember that" moment.
Makes me wonder if salad spinner sales increased because of endowed women.

QI informed me I could buy milk cups that resembled Marie Antoniette's breasts.
I did give a moment's pause as I considering finding a pair. (Of course a pair what poor sucker would buy a solo Marie Antoniette boob cup?)
Yet also struck me as one awesome reclining chair and unfurnished apartment away from being that guy.
And if you don't know that guy some of your friends do... or you maybe him.
