Captain Eo Returns

First, from Steve we have this video of someone busted stealing WiFi. You only need to watch the first half unless you want a lecture on unsecured networks. But this lady is a riot — not only is she busted, she’s proud of it. And admits she’s cheap. Gotta love her honest dishonesty. (I’ve been […]

Old Mother Hubbard

This is another post in my series of titles that has little or nothing to do with the content. While it’s bad for traffic, it greatly amuses me. Or maybe it’s a gentle poke at Grant. You decide for yourself. I just finished dinner. I made almost a pound of burger meat (extra lean) and […]

Atrocity In The Name Of Food and many other ramblings including iPod and Beatles

If you are squeamish, you will wish to skip this paragraph — the links are horrifically graphic. This report is available on AP, CBS, and many other news services and it’s absolutely disgusting and appalling. NewsBlaze and CBS . The bottom line is that approximately 150,000 baby chickens are ground to death in meat grinders […]

MRI Results and stuff

This is post 650 for this blog and the current counter has surpassed 230,000 which is pretty amazing to me. I also wish to point out I am spending too much time on Facebook lately. I’ll correct that in short order. Happy Birthday to Jace — I’m glad you’re having one, and I hope there […]

Up — The Review (not much spoiling here)

I wanted to love Up because it was a Pixar film. Pixar has produced some excellent films, the only disappointment to me was Cars. First, I liked Up, but I didn’t love it. I couldn’t figure out why and I was thinking about it while waiting for lunch and on the drive home. Then, it […]

Trumped Again

I wrote way back in 2004 about Donald Trump and how poor I thought his business acumen was. I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for so long, but here it is 2009 and today, he did it again. Yeah, no joke. How the hell can you bankrupt a casino empire twice. I would encourage you […]

Mostly Wall-E (Wall*E) Review

First, a few clarifications about my new car for those asking. It’s the 3.0 version of the X5 which is 6 cylinders and not 8. I didn’t need the power or the crappy-ass fuel penalty. Secondly, one of the big deciding factors was the all-inclusive maintenance that includes absolutely everything except tires. That makes a […]

The Complete Disney Film List And My Rankings

These are the classic animated Disney films. These are FULL LENGTH FEATURES ONLY. The list does not include animated films distributed but not produced by Disney. It also doesn’t include direct to video releases. The first column is the order in which they were released, and the second column is my opinion as to the […]

Ratatouille Really Rocks

Ratatouille really rocks. This rodent tale, written and directed by Brad Bird of Incredibles fame, is one powerful film. When I first saw the previews, I’ll be honest, I wasn’t interested. I thought it was going to be the worst of the Pixar lot (Cars currently holds that honour in my opinion). Instead, I have […]

The Big Puta (my trip to the Far East)

Hello:(Last revised and updated 11-12-05) Well, I’m back and here’s the trip report for Taiwan, Hong Kong, and China brought to you by our sponsor: that nasty bitch Hurricane Wilma. I’m sure I don’t need to tell anyone how much I didn’t want to go on this trip — anyone who knows me heard me […]
