Vote


I know I haven't had much to say on the election this year. Maybe because I said so much about it in 2004. Luckily my friend sent me this video today, which has spurred me to at least share it with you all. See you on Tuesday.…

Most Overhyped Website Claim Ever


Sponsored link, seen in my Gmail inbox: AmazingFartVideos.com - 10 Fart Videos That Changed The World. Watch Free Instantly! Farts, that changed the world. Did Hitler have an embarrassing flatulence transgression as a kid that gave him such issues, leading to World War II? Did George W. Bush fart his way to such stupefying stupidity? Did a fart cause the Challenger explosion, and we just don't know it? I mean, I thought it was an o-ring. Loads of websites make grandiose claims, and sell lots of crap; some successfully, some not. Girls Gone Wild, I get. This, I don't. Maybe it's just me.…

The Night The TiVo Died


I'm so distraught, I put it into song: The Night the TiVo Died (sung to the tune of Paper Lace's "The Night Chicago Died") In the chill of a winter's night In the land of the yoga hippies When Rob & Brenda's TiVo died And they talk about it still When Rob arrived home from work Brenda displayed a nervous quirk She said "I have some bad news" And then she gestured towards the tube We heard Robbie cry We heard him pray the night the TiVo died Brother what a night it really was Brother what a plight it really was Live TV We heard Robbie cry We heard him pray the night the TiVo died Brother what a…

Bacon Salt!


My friend sent me this link today. Bacon salt. Absolutely fucking genius. It's bacony salt! Salt that tastes like bacon! You got me pal? BACON SALT! IN ASSORTED VERSIONS! Now I read the fine print, and I understand that there is acually no bacon whatsoever in this product--which makes it a vegetarian bacon product! Are you feelin' me yet? The website features various pictures of high-fat, high-salt foods, with the promise of even greater gastronomical goodness, made possible by bacon (flavored) salt. And I'm telling you this, right now: I'm in. I'm all in.…

Paper Can't Win


My co-worker sent this to me today, along with a note that I should be proud she thought of me when she read this. And I am. I guess you can take the kid outta New Jersey, but you can't take the Jersey outta the kid.…

Happy Zacarias


Today, a co-worker shared some of his recordings from when he was in a band. They had toured for a couple years, playing mostly in the Atlanta area, and were reasonably competent. A discussion arose regarding band names; I may have possibly brought it up. You see, I have some really solid names for bands, and it pisses me off that I lack the musical talent, connections and material to plug into a band name. And tonight, I hit on the greatest album name ever, so now I'm really feeling down. Lemme start with the band name: There are a few towns in New Jersey all ending with "Amboy", such as South Amboy, and Perth Amboy. When you drive through…
