Banned Vodka

Yesterday NPR told me about a vodka banned in Idaho.
Banned because may represent polygamy.
Banned in Idaho, distilled and sold in Utah... oh people!

Why Idaho banned the vodka:
"Products that we feel are marketed toward children, or are in poor taste with respect to out citizens will not be authorized for distribution," Idaho State Liquor Division Deputy Director Howard Wasserstein wrote in a letter to the Ogden distillery.

What Five Wives Feels
As for how people or state officials interpret the name and label, [Steve Conlin, Director of Marketing] said the company realizes that "people bring their own baggage to the label. We've never shied away from that." But polygamy wasn't the driving force behind the name or label, he said: "We were just searching for something to call our vodka ... with a nod to the historical West."

New Playlist

From a list of baffling trends in olde tymie album covers.
Apparently there was a girl watcher club at my college in the 60s, I know this because there was a plaque in memory of some guy.
I wonder if he listened to this album.

Way Too Late Musical Fix

I went to the Art Theatre with Al and Carmen; a weird sibling bonding moment.
During this moment Al wiped out a zippo and struck it.
A guy came up with a super soaker.
Shot Al's lighter.
He (Super Soaker Gent) then said, "He said, 'Darkness,' Asshole!"
Good times.

Way Too Late Musical Fix

The Muppet Movie maybe the greatest road movie of my generation.
...Blues Brothers is a close second.
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is on there somewhere...
...and I'm done with this issue.

Way Too Late Musical Fix

I lucked out to work as many hours as I did on this.
I enjoyed this song.
Mostly because it meant I didn't do anything but also because it was enjoyable.
But the carpet flight was still a let down.

Speed Hole

I've been doing this to cans of PBR, Rainier, Olympia, and other cheap beers since I rewatched MASH (the film) and saw them doing it to can of beer.
Mind it was before pull tabs but still, speed hole!

Damn you Miller!

Donna Summer

Donna Summer died today.
I got her confused with Irene Cara... yeah I suck.

Way Too Late Musical Fix

I believe my Dad loved this song.
I think he may have sang it at some point.
But I doubt it since it's out of his character.

Good Night Everybody

I love Animaniacs.
Watching this I realize how much my humor was influenced by this show.
And Marx Brothers.

Way Too Late Musical Fix

Figured I'd end up playing Herod if I were cast in a version of Jesus Christ Superstar


I've worked with the actress that did this voice.
She's an odd but very professional person.
She also said I looked like Lord Byron once... I think she's a cool person.

...I suppose it's time to rewatch all the films of my youth for double entendres.

I still can't wear all dragon stuff without getting looks like I'm an absolute outcast.
I knew a guy that had a button up shirt with a dragon silk screened on it... it was ok we were pen and paper rpg friends so it was fine to wear that... at least 1 day a week.

Insomnia's Child

...hanging out free and wild...
Well no but the idea to ask my insomnia to play cards ever occurred to me... but it did feel like we played video games once.

Metal Dreamin'

Been watching the various metal covers this guy does and I admire his ability.
This song is pretty cool until the remixed talk over stuff but still damned cool.


Good question...
And answer.

Bar Signs

Oddee did a list of hilarious bar signs.
A few good ones but they didn't have any from the Atlantic Cross, which has many great signs, including this one which maybe one of my favorites.

Oh Ozzy

...Being mistaken for a wax statue isn't the worst that's happened to this man.
Going from a god of metal to a stumbling confused mortal man is.
Just watch the Osbournes for further proof.

No it's cool you don't want to hang out, just stay in your crabhole.

Protest Sign

Less Fat Cats/ More Cat Naps!

I know the girl who made and carried this sign.
Not in the ill fated Occupy Seattle Protest that turned into a minor riot because of a group of anarchists but the more civilized May Works March... oh Seattle.
Maybe Carmen was right when she quoted PCU at me, "We're not gonna protest."


Worked with a guy that looked a bit like Fez.
When he previously worked at the theme park his nickname was Fez.
It didn't work out.
Neither did my attempt to get his nickname to be, "The Mighty Flower".

What's wrong with a musical now and then?

Way Too Late Music Video Fix

Feels like so long ago now.
I've been to a lot of committee meetings, a number of actions, and many many conversation but I can say it was what happened in Wisconsin that really gave me a chance to get involved.
Maybe something will come from all this work too but who knows.
