The Quagmire Of My Mind

I guess I actually need to make a post with the title of my blog in it after all these years. Having bad memories you can’t get rid of, try the Death Bear. Yeah. Right out of the LA Times comes a story on this New York City performance artist who has taken his craft to a […]

April Fool’s Day 2010

Today’s been a busy day on the Internet with April Fool’s jokes though this year’s crop is less than stellar on average. One of the more amusing ran in London’s Telegraph newspaper revealing that Virgin Media uses ferrets as the key to bridge the digital divide. Many major news outlets ran articles on everyone else’s jokes. Some of the better ones […]

Insomnia Is Wonderful

Not. I’m starting this post at 2:35am local time. Why? Because I went to bed at 1130pm and gave up trying to sleep at 1250. The cough doesn’t help the sleeping. I did email, checked AFDB, and sent some IMs. Almost nobody was awake to bother, though I did bug SWMBO for a bit. I […]

Offensiveness And Videos Galore

Sometimes it’s fun to be offensive, especially if it means getting under the skin of someone without them even knowing why. This example pleases me greatly. Sometimes a post begs a reply and this one was no exception. My reply was especially pithy with double meaning inside. I never imagined how quick the bait would […]

Vanishing Posts

At least one post 12 October 2008 wasn’t in the new blog. I’ve been monitoring it carefully and when I see an inbound link that goes nowhere I can fix it. All of them have been adjustments to path names. I’ve only got two difficult posts. One I solved after realizing it couldn’t resolve because […]

My Head Is Going to Explode

Ouch. Migraines suck. Too many attempts to kill it and nothing’s worked so far. I have upgraded to my prescription pharmaceuticals I have for emergencies such as this. Die. Die. Die. My mouth now tastes like Fioricet because I didn’t get it down the first time. That’s one evil taste, let me tell you what. […]

Den of Honor: The Florida Panthers Get It Right

I have been a very harsh critic of the Panthers over the past five or six years because I give a shit about the team when nobody in management for years clearly did. As a fan, it hurts to watch your team, the team’s heritage, and the fans be treated indifferently and poorly. We have […]

A Collection From A Cluttered Mind

My friend John and I have an ongoing argument about AC/DC. We like them, but they’ve been recording the same songs for years. It is John’s (erroneous) contention that AC/DC has recorded six songs, while it is my (far more accurate) contention that they have recorded four songs. John has decided to go public with our dispute. […]
