Star Wars nerds/geek people

Wow. I've seen some pretty awesome stuff but I think if they had this when I was a kid, I would have shit my pants.

Because I was incontinent.

But also because it's so cool!

You see that Yoda on that guy's back? That's a backpack! It's like you've got your very own Yoda from Empire Strikes Back, hanging on to you! And even better than a real Yoda, this one is hollow and holds crap inside his body!

Illegal Aliens

Have you been concerned about foreigners illegally crossing our borders and stealing our jobs?

Me either, but this looks pretty awesome.

Click on the trailer for "Illegal Aliens".

#810,202 of things that should be illegal but aren't:

Beauty pageants for children.

I know it's been in the news lately, what with Jon Benet and all, but seriously, how are these things not child abuse?

I mean, look at the kind of pictures these people take of their children.

That's a picture of a real girl, it's not a doll.

Look at this bunch of zombies. I am so sick of the excuse that, "She loves to do it!"

Even if that's true, which it obviously isn't, judging by the blank look on many of their faces, it doesn't make it right.

If a kid drinks a beer, he may actually like it. A lot. But does that mean it's not wrong?

Each one of these pictures is a caption-contest waiting to happen.

OK, I have a better idea

So I just wrote about how I want someone to buy me a Mac and this got me thinking.

As a back story, a few years ago, I began asking people for $12,000. I felt that if I had $12,000, then I would be able to free myself up to pursue my career and would soon be able to return that investment.

Well, fate has a weird way of working things out, because I got my $12,000. In fact, I got twice that. The weird thing is, it came in the form of disability insurance after I had massive heart surgery. So I am wary of "putting this out into the universe" that I want a new Mac. Especially since I have an appointment with my doctor on Wednesday.

Even though I said 'please', Macs are expensive. The cheapest option I spoke of is the $599 Mac Mini and hopefully that wouldn't be the one someone would buy me. You would hope they would at least get me the upgraded one with the Dual Core processor.

Anyway, I was inspired by my friend Penelope, who recently gave me her old iMac. It's a really cool computer but I don't feel it's adequate to get into blogging with, because of it's 32 mb of ram and OS 8.5.

No, for me to get the real feel for a Mac, it's going to take at least 512 mb of ram and OS X.

I want to run iLife and iMovie and stuff like that. I want to feel what it's like to be a Mac user!

Now, an alternative to my original plan is this: someone else should give me their used (but newer) Mac. An iBook or newer iMac, maybe? Perhaps you just got a Mac Pro and now your G5 tower is gathering dust?

This way, you're not taking anything away from yourself, in fact, I am providing you with a service. I have lots of crap that I should probably throw out and I would love if someone came to me and said "let me give your crap a home and I will use it and love it and take care of it". Really, if you think about it, I am the one doing you a favor, not the other way around.

So please give me your crap, as long as that crap has at least a G4 processor, 512 mb of ram, an 80 gig hard drive and a DVD burner. These specs are negotiable if we're talking about a laptop, because I am not picky. These are suitable alternatives for me. Again, just let me know.

Thanks again!

Please buy me a Mac

OK, I know I'm not a hot chick with big boobs or anything, but I was thinking you guys should buy me a Mac.

Even a Mac Mini would do, though I'm hoping for a MacBook or a Mac Pro, but hey, beggars can't be choosers, right?

I've been reading lots of articles about what's the best Mac to use for blogging and oddly enough, their conclusions were never "a PC", so Paypal me some money or if you want to buy it and have it sent to my house, that is fine too.

Hype on a plane

Well, I feel somewhat vindicated.

Snakes on a Plane opened to modest numbers.

I didn't really see what the fuss was about.

Just like with any other pop-culture phenomenon, I get wary of anything that is too universally praised or anticipated.

I had a bunch of friends whose opinions really matter to me tell me that it was awesome and I had to see it, but I can't be swayed from my original stance.

Was it the title? I mean, I've had people explain it to me that way. "I just heard the name of the movie and I knew it would be awesome!"

Was it the internet blitz? I'll be honest, I sent out probably a hundred phone calls to people.

Was it the premise? Because, I have to say, they make these things all the time. There are tons of crappy "thriller" movies with bad special effects, campy acting and plotlines, but why so much attention on this one?

Which leads me to my theory: Samuel L. Jackson.

"Snakes on a Plane" starring Casper Van Diem: 3 million dollars. Straight to video.

"Snakes on a Plane" starring the guy who played Mace Windu: National theatrical release.

I believe it was this bit of credibility which put the momentum behind the ridiculous internet hype-fest. Seeing a guy who's got millions of dollars, who is a respected actor who does really good films starring in a stupid piece of shit with a ridiculous title intrigued people.

If people wanna get excited for a crappy movie, I'm normally not one to rain on their parade (see Showgirls), but I draw the line on people taking ownership of the experience as if it's their favorite little indie band that hit it big.

What do I mean? I hate when people sit there and tell me that I can't like a band as much as they do because they have been fans longer than I have or they saw them at some tiny club 4 years ago before they hit it big. This is usually followed with a "back when they were good and hadn't sold out". Lame.

Incredibly enough, people have taken this attitude and applied it to Snakes on a Plane. I have had many friends tell me it's probably the kind of thing you should see on opening weekend, with a packed theater full of people yelling things out at the screen. Fair enough. But when some jackass tells me that I've missed my chance at our generation's Woodstock because now the real fans have already seen it, call me crazy, but I want to murder that person.

So, in summation:

I am smart and perfect.

You are dumb.

I should be allowed to murder you.

There. Now that's settled, I'm gonna get a burger or something.

I *heart* wordpress!

I do. I love my new wordpress blog.

Is that wrong, to plug a different blog site on blogger? I will probably be switching over there, it's just easier and it looks nicer. Don't you think?

In case you have no idea what I'm talking about, I moved my regular blog,, from blogger to wordpress, which is a different blog hosting site.

I was just gonna try it out because it works better with microsoft's new windows live writer, which is an app to write and publish blogs from outside of your regular blog page. I was having problems with blogger being down for maintenance so often and also had some issues with the way they handle pictures and stuff.

So anyway, I try it out with wordpress and it just looks better, it's easier to set up and maintain but the best part is all the statistics tools they give you with it.

They tell me how many people click on my site (which you can only do on blogger with third party plug-ins or by using google adsense) but they also tell me from where they are coming, via their url.

If you have ever read my blog, you know I'm obsessed with who is reading my blog and how they found it, because, honestly, I mostly feel like it's just my friends and family reading it.

So in addition to all those statistics, probably the coolest thing is when it tells you what search terms people have used to find your site.

This is, by far, my favorite:

cherry doll piece of shit whore movie

If you enter this into google, my site pops up third. Yes, third!

I have no idea what someone was looking for when they typed that in or why my site was deemed the third-most relevant, but it is and I'm keeping it.

That one's mine!

In Sri Lanka, monks beat you!

I don't think I've ever heard of this happening before.

About six or seven monks from a right-wing Buddhist faction had stormed the stage during a peace rally attended by about 1,000 people in the capital, Colombo, shouting pro-war slogans, an AP reporter at the scene said.

Right wing Buddhists? I didn't know they even existed.

Aren't Buddhists supposed to be calm and at peace with the world? Not demanding that the government goes to war?

I mean, I'm not even getting into the argument about which side is right or what, I just always thought Buddhists were automatically anti-war and violence, no matter what the situation. Like, if someone knocks down your tree, you don't go and kill them, you go and plant another tree, right? Or am I thinking of the Karate Kid? What was Mr. Miyagi?

Oh jeez, this is all so confusing and vaguely racist.

Product review: My Razr phone

I know this is old news, but I just have to say: everybody was right.

When I was looking into getting a new phone, the only one I really wanted was a Motorola Razr. It seemed to have everything I needed (or thought I needed): a camera, Bluetooth, speakerphone. Actually, one of the key factors in my decision was the fact that it would fit nicely in my pocket and not roll around like rounder phones tended to do with me.

I asked all my friends and even some random strangers who had the phone what they thought of it and most seemed to like it. Plus, the price was right. I got mine from T-Mobile for about 50 bucks with a rebate (which I did receive in a reasonable amount of time).

But the caveat I heard over and over again was that the speaker in the headset wasn't very loud.

And it's true. You know when you talk on a cell phone and things sound faint, but you realize you don't have the speaker in the right position by your ear? That's what this is like, only you can't slide the phone up or down and adjust it and make it right. It always sounds kind of faint. Not in a terrible way, it's just mildly annoying.

I knew it would be like this, I did. My thinking was that it wouldn't be a big deal because I was so excited about getting a Bluetooth headset, but then I heard all sorts of horror stories about those too.

Other than that, I really like my new phone. The pictures aren't great, but it's a phone, not a camera. The speakerphone actually works really well and the call quality on the other end is pretty good. People often remark about how clear I sound. Well, I think that's what they're saying anyway.

I might break down and get a headset, I'm not sure. The mini-USB headset that came with it is pretty much worthless, as nobody can understand a word I'm saying when I use it.

Does anyone out there have a good experience with a Bluetooth headset for their T-Mobile Razr? There's really no way to test them out and I don't want to be stuck with one that sucks.

I wanted to write an article about the Dixie Chicks and free speech, complete with links and quotes and all that shit, but unfortunately, I missed the boat by a few months and I’m having a hard time finding all the articles that I read back when their album came out.

Anyway, I’m gonna wing it.

Maybe you don’t like the Dixie Chicks, maybe you don’t like what they had to say about the president, but I don’t see how you can’t admire them for sticking up for what they believe in.

I’m not here to debate whether it was right or wrong, publicity-mongering or people genuinely sticking up for what they believe in, I’m just going to assume that they do feel the way they claim. Seeing as they’re being shunned by country music as a whole and canceling tour dates left and right, I can’t see why they would hold on to such an unpopular stance if they didn’t stand behind it.

That said, here is how I view what happened:

They spoke their minds. They mouthed off, they were flapping their gums, whatever you want to call it.

In the immediate backlash, they apologized. I have a feeling this has more to do with their PR machine putting pressure on them than a genuine feeling of remorse, but that’s really my point here.

They basically back-tracked at this point, saying they weren’t sorry. Country music went nuts. They were banned from different stations, DJs got fired for playing their music. I don’t know if there was a Goebbels-style “CD burning” ceremony anywhere, but I wouldn’t put it past anyone.

What I want to talk about is the immense pressure put upon them by numerous sources to apologize and take back what they said.

If you haven’t agreed with anything I’ve said so far, you can’t doubt that this pressure existed. As a multi-platinum selling act, they were responsible for making a lot of people a lot of money. And those people weren’t ready to say, “good for you, stand up for what you believe in, even if it costs us all a ton of cash.”

I’m not even saying they should. There’s nothing wrong with looking out for your own interests, I guess. Not in business, anyway.

All I’m saying is that with all this pressure to shut the hell up and make friendly with people again, the Dixie Chicks told everyone to fuck off.

In this day and age, that is rare. It takes balls and I applaud them for it.

The articles I made reference to at the beginning were mostly along the lines of different program directors for the big country stations across the country saying it was a ‘fuck you’ to the fans that they released a song called “Not Ready to Make Nice” as their first single.

“Release something else,” was the predominant philosophy. Get the people into Walmart to buy the album and let them discover that song on their own – or not.

“Why do you have to cause trouble like this?” the parties with a vested interest seemed to be saying.

Here’s the thing: it is a big fuck you to their fans. But if your fans are willing to ditch you that fast, don’t they deserve a fuck you?

Everybody has the right to their own opinion and if your opinion is that what the Dixie Chicks said was wrong, then exercise that right by not buying their albums. Call the radio stations and request they not be played. But then don’t sit there and scratch your heads when they suddenly don’t want to be your friends anymore.

That’s the part of the equation that these program directors and record executives missed. I saw plenty of criticism against the Dixie Chicks for being surprised that people didn’t want to buy their albums,

I found this quote from President Bush on Wikipedia:

"[T]he Dixie Chicks are free to speak their mind. They can say what they want to say ... They shouldn't have their feelings hurt just because some people don't want to buy their records when they speak out ... Freedom is a two-way street ... I ... don't really care what the Dixie Chicks said. I want to do what I think is right for the American people, and if some singers or Hollywood stars feel like speaking out, that's fine. That's the great thing about America. It stands in stark contrast to Iraq ..."

That’s true enough, but it goes both ways. Why is it OK for the “fans”/DJs/program directors/record executives to have their feelings hurt when the Dixie Chicks suddenly tell them to shove it, that they’re not going to play their game anymore?

And that’s what it is: a sense of betrayal. “Here’s our advice, you didn’t take it, well fuck you too.” Again, I wish I had one of these articles to quote, because there is an attitude pervading all the statements I read that smacks of bitterness.

Why am I making such a big deal about this? Because people often talk about defending free speech, but few people ever do anything about it. It seems that you’re more likely to get people to help you if you’re a Neo-Nazi and you want to hold a rally than you are if you’re dissenting from the party line in this country.

I am reminded, over and over again, of the book “The Chocolate War”. This sense of “just bow to the pressure and everything will go away and be all right again”.

Ask Howard Stern about this. For a while, he was pretty much on his own. Unfortunately for America, he is in increasingly large company. Now you can ask the Dixie Chicks.

The problem with this administration and the climate of the country, in general, is not that we’re going to war with Iraq. It’s the attitude that to speak out against the war is “un-American” and more importantly, the idea that a philosophy like that is acceptable in a free society.

It is not.

People with the courage to stand up for what they believe in, regardless of the validity of what they’re saying, are a dying breed.

Am I saying that every idiot with some crackpot theory about 9/11 be applauded for their bravery? No. But we should recognize their right to say it? I think we have to. Because who are we going to entrust with the authority to sort out the crackpots from the dissident voices that make sense? The government? I hope you see the lunacy of that idea.

HD Radio? What a great idea!

If you've heard those annoying ads while listening to your radio in the car, you may have wondered what's up with HD Radio and what the big deal is.

The big deal, my friends, is that it's super awesome!

How many times have you been sitting around thinking, "Gosh, I wish the big radio conglomerates would try and switch formats in an attempt to undermine the success of satellite while making my regular radio outdated, thus forcing me to shell out big bucks for brand new equipment"? If you're like me, it happens all the time!

If there's one thing in this world that I want, it's a brand new bunch of stations, federally regulated by the same organization originally created to enforce issues like signal strength that now deems itself purveyor of deceny and morals and has been contributing to the homogenization of music for the last 20 years, that I'm never going to sit around in my living room listening to!

Thank you, HD radio, for making my dreams come true!

My Dell - update

Ok, I promise this will be the last post about my computer (at least as it pertains to this issue).

I felt obliged to write this post because, actually, a Dell Technician called me today. I guess it's his job to search peoples' blogs for complaints about Dells. He came across mine and contacted me to see if everything had been resolved.

I appreciate the effort and he was a nice guy and very apologetic. But I don't know if this sways me, you know? It's just too little, too late.

I (again) explained my ordeal and why I felt that Dell had let me down. His opinion was that this was a very rare occurrence, but I was not convinced. This seems like a systematic failure of the system they have in place.

As he looked through my pages and pages of logs I had generated, I can't wonder if he hadn't started to agree with me.

He made good on the financial compensation I was offered earlier (that I never heard about again, even though I was promised a follow-up call the next day) and I was given a $100 credit on my payment plan, which isn't something to sneeze at, but still boils down to about $12/hour.

Anyway, I sorta blame myself for all of this. I should have known better than to try and go through the recommended procedures. I can't stress this enough: if you have the same problem, CALL technical support and just keep yelling "agent" into the phone, ignoring the prompts. Eventually, they will send you to a real person, it's the only way to solve these kinds of problems.

I want to get a Mac

I recently resolved my issues with my Dell, but the fact that it took 10+ hours, 25 emails and 10+ online chat sessions with a technician who took control of my computer to finally realize (by accident) that my new computer didn't ship with an updated video codec is truly maddening. Not to mention the fact that I've gotten two late charges from Dell Financial. Apparently, mailing something from California to Texas takes more than six days.

Anyway, this has all left a really bad taste in my mouth as far as PCs are concerned.

For the first time in my life, I'm jealous of people with Macs.

I've always thought they looked cool, but it was in a detached sorta way. Like how you would look at a guy with a girlfriend who's a stripper. Sure, it would be nice at first, but you know you'd get annoyed with her really quickly. Plus, eventually she's gonna want to meet your parents, etc.

Now, I really want one. For real. I will get over my issues with the mice. I will buy all new software. I will be forced to associate with trendy people who hang out in coffee shops and drive Priuses. Why? Because when your Mac breaks, you call their customer service and talk to someone in Connecticut who is helpful and knows what they're talking about. End of story.

This is how Dell used to be. Five or six years ago, I had a problem with my computer and they decided to ship out a new part within ten minutes of me calling them. They were friendly and courteous in a mid-Western America sort of way.

Is this racist of me? Xenophobic? Basically, if you haven't read between the lines, I am saying that I like speaking to Americans with a firm grasp of the English language and a working knowledge of computers when mine breaks. That doesn't seem unreasonable to me, yet I feel like maybe I shouldn't say it out loud.

I don't hate foreigners, but I hate the company they work for that decided to save some money by routing their tech support calls half-way across the world to a bunch of unskilled workers with passable English who sit there with a script of responses. It's frustrating. If that makes me a bad person, sue me.

The people I spoke with were nice and courteous, but they didn't seem very knowledgable. I'm glad they are provided with a job that pays a decent wage. Again, I am assuming this to be the case, maybe Dell is ripping them off too.

OK, you know what? I take it all back. I don't want a Mac anymore. My PC works fine. And it was cheap. I think that's the real issue here. A comparable Mac would have cost me twice as much and that's before the 300 dollars or so I would have to spend on an Applecare program.

I guess it all comes down to me: I am cheap, so I got a cheap product. People want to spend less on their computers, so the computer companies export their production overseas to save money and pass on the savings to the consumer.

I guess when I said I want a Mac, what I meant was, I want out of this cycle. I want to pay more and get more. I want things at a premium. I want to be rich and mature. I want to wear vintage t-shirts, drink caffe lattes and punch girls in the face for fun. I want to show up at some random guy's funeral wearing a chicken costume and knock over the coffin and try and put on as much of a goddam puppet show with that corpse as I can put on before all his relatives tackle me.

Cuz that's living.

But you assholes wouldn't know anything about that.

(sorry I called you assholes)

More fun than kangaroos on bus

I am extremely childish so as soon as I saw this Snakes on a Plane personalized phone calls thing, I sent probably 50 messages out. So if you got a phone call from Samuel L. Jackson and you were wondering why, I'm the reason.

They didn't record any unpopular names (sorry Zabeth), so you can't send them to everyone, but it's fun, nonetheless. I like to send ones to females that mention their kid and they're beard! I'm terrible!

Check it out and give me a call.

Really, the guy without a beard from Clerks? Really?

OK, so usually I post blogs on my regular blog, and then just repost them here, but I think it's time for a change. I'm still gonna do that, but in addition, I'm also gonna do shorter, more topical blogs for my myspace-only blog.

My literary agents and my management team think it's best if I keep my regular blog strictly for my fiction writing, as they'll often direct interested parties to it, to check out my work.

Funny story, apparently Terri told some producer in New York to check me out, I guess they were thinking about me doing some re-writes for American Wedding 2, so he goes to my blog and sees some thing where I won't shut up about my new favorite bacon (the kind in a box that you don't need to cook or refrigerate YUM!). Needless to say, I didn't get the job.

Anyway, that brings me to this post. I read this article on about Clerks II and right at the bottom I saw this little nugget about a possible Clerks III:

Smith said he would not rule that out, and he hopes to do a straight-to-video animated "Clerks" movie. But a third live-action film would be a tough sell for Anderson, who only agreed to do "Clerks II" after a lot of arm-twisting.

"If Kevin thought he had a hard time convincing me to do number two, he's in for a real battle to do number three," said Anderson, who initially thought the sequel was a bad idea but signed on because he liked the script. "This one's a very nice bookend to 'Clerks,' and I think the ending is really poignant."

In case you're wondering, that's Jeff Anderson, who plays Randal Graves (not the guy with the beard who kinda looks like Kevin Smith, the other guy) in the Clerks movies, as well as everything else Kevin Smith has ever done and also in ... oh, that's right... NOTHING.

I'm sure you don't want my advice, bud, but here it is: Shut the hell up.

There isn't a person on the face of the earth who isn't sure you'd drink a milkshake made out of Kevin Smith's grandmother's pubic hair if he asked you to. You see your house? Your car? That tracksuit you wear when you're mowing Kevin's lawn? Get the point?

Arm-twisting? This guy's got some balls.

"Hey guy without the beard from Clerks, if you can't make it to that Sam Goody opening in Teaneck because you're too busy shooting a major motion picture, I'm sure they'll get Willie Ames or Mayim Bialik to do it instead. Don't sweat it."

What a douchebag. I might post this on my regular blog anyway, fuck Terri.

A question for Dell

I didn't want to write this blog. I am not looking to slam anyone, I just don't know where to turn at this point.

I own 3 Dells. I have purchased probably 10-15 machines for my former company when I worked as an IT professional, but I will not buy a single Dell machine ever again.

I purchased a Dell Inspiron E510 several months ago, it was a nice, mid-level machine with a dual-core processor, 2 gigs of ram and a 250 gig hard drive.

I bought it with dual optical drives: a dvd+-rw and a dvd rom. The main reason I bought it was to edit videos I shot and then burn them to dvd. Along with this, came the hope I would be able to view these dvds, as well as the dvds my friends in the filmmaking community had made.

From the beginning, both drives were unable to read most burned dvds. The sound was there and the video would show for a second before becoming scrambled. As if my issue was one of copyright protection or incorrect region.

The dvds themselves were fine: they play in every single other computer I've tested, as well as several set-top dvd players I tried. I can even copy them using my machine and they will play fine. Just not in my computer. The one that just burned them.

This sounds like a problem, doesn't it? I understand that there are going to be compatibility issues with different drives, write speeds, media, etc. but in my prior experience, this was a "once in a while" problem. Not a "nearly every single time" problem.

This was Dell's answer to me when I sought help from technical support. Actually, their first answer was "this is a software issue, do you agree to pay 45 dollars for us to resolve this?" or something like that.

I spent a good three hours on the phone and with online tech support. Repeatedly, I was told that this was a non-issue even though I was unable to use the computer for one of the main reasons I bought it in the first place.

So I let it go. Even though I had spent over a thousand dollars on a piece of machinery that I thought was defecting, Dell beat me down with their tactic of "deny, deny, deny". I was tired of it.

Fast forward a few months and I have a job to do. One that is severely hindered by my machine's inability to complete this task.

I take another shot at it.

This time, Dell seems more willing to admit their is a problem and they seem pretty sure they know how to fix it.

If you've deal with Dell online chat support, you probably know you are dealing with people overseas who are not knowledgable about the products they are trying to service and are working off of scripts. No matter how mad you get, the reply is "I understand your problem sir, I am working very hard to fix it".

I only resorted to this chat method because trying to deal with them over the phone is even more exhausting. The problem with it is this: if you use the computer which has the problem to discuss with them what's going on, you will inevitably get to a point where their "fixes" will require you to re-boot, terminating the chat session and ultimately leading to you having to start all over.

So after giving me several non-fixes: removing the drivers for the dvd drives and the video card. I am now left with a computer that is even more non-functioning than it was before because now the dvd rw drive won't even recognize when it has blank media in it.

This was a six hour process of them telling me solutions that I knew as an IT professional were not going to work.

I explained that if I'm getting the same problem in both drives, it can't possibly be a broken laser in one of them. But I humored them, I played along. I begged to speak to supervisors, I begged them to call me. I begged them to send a technician.

Am I wrong? Is this really not an issue? Should I just deal with the fact that I bought a brand new computer so that I could burn dvds and watch them and now I am unable to do that?

This is craziness to me. I don't understand why I had to deal with a company on 8 different occasions on one single day and have not gotten a phone call from someone making sure my issue was resolved.

I really have no idea where to turn now.

What the hell happened to Dell? I remember a time (not that long ago) when you would talk to a real person, they would recognize something was wrong and either send you a brand new part or a technician. Usually the next day. I understand they need to save money to keep costs down, but I would be willing to pay a premium for that which I had come to expect as a baseline level of service.

I am mystified. Is this just how the industry is now? Are there any companies that are not like this anymore? I don't get it. I really don't get it. Given everything I've said, I can't understand how they would think it's acceptable for someone to be online with their technicians for six hours, not come to a resolution, express extreme dissatisfaction at every corner and somehow think this is an OK way to do business.

Am I out of line here? I am already dreading having to call them back.

What? Another blog??

OK, so I admit it.

I have too many blogs.

But, this is an attempt to cut back. To consolidate. From this point on, I will have, where I will put up my fictional stories,, where I will host my podcast and, where I will post real blogs about pop culture, technology, gossip, stuff I saw, cartoons I drew, fake movie reviews, pictures I've taken, videos I think are funny, etc.

What about the other 15 blogs I've got? Well, most likely I won't be posting on them... maybe a lone post from time to time. It's just too much work, between those blogs and my ten Myspace accounts, I hardly have time for my six-hour mid-day naps anymore.

Anyway, enjoy!
