Xmas



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.

...So much has changed but what's more interesting is what hasn't.

But now it's not common to see someone walking around with cigarettes in their mouth.
Unless it's a roadie at a rock concert.

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.

WTLMVF: Butt Rock-tober



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.

Romney Style



Ok done with this whole gangnam style thing... for now.
Although it was interesting when I worked a wedding (truly a bit of a nerd wedding) and this video had just become popular and the attendants knew the dance.
Oh Nerds... you're so nerdy.

I said what?



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.

Bike Lane



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."

Soda Fountain


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.

Exploitation Now



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.

Oh New Mexico



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.

Makes me wonder if salad spinner sales increased because of endowed women.

And if you don't know that guy some of your friends do... or you maybe him.
