My usage of the word defies it’s true definition (just like any self-respecting child of the 90s).


**ADDENDUM 1/11/12** WordPress has broken their *personal* vow of political silence to speak up about this issue here! And I’m slacking for having not visited Stop American Censorshipyet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do something about it!!! **/ADDENDUM** **ADDENDUM 12/30/11** Oh wait, sorry that’s the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA). SOPA wants to give Congress the authority to create a new enforcement agency that police’s the Internet looking for copyright violations and giving them the authority to shutdown sites like YouTube and Facebook for “having a vauge definition of piracy” as it were. O.o Really Congress? Really? I mean sure it’s job creation, but who really wants the job of policing the Internet? Besides that job is reserved for XKCD stick figures who can’t budge from their computers because “someone on the Internet is wrong!” 😉 **/ADDENDUM** SOPA is a bill by Congress (those lovable, out-of-touch coots) that wants to … Continue reading →

Kim Jong Il Tribute

Insensitive? Probably. Hilarious? I seemed to think so…. A mash up of the song “I’m So Ronery” by Trey Parker and Matt Stone from their hit film “Team America: World Police” and this image from Wikipedia.

Birthday Extravaganza 2011

Hear all about Laura’s adventures with the Berry’s at Disneyland Pick up our picnic lunches with Yellow Zone World of Color Fast Passes (it’s still early?

Three Letter Pie (Or Why My Wife Is AMAZING)

The first time we randomly encountered WordWorld on public television while on vacation several years ago, we thought it was a very cute concept. Flash forward to the present where the entire series is available on Netflix Instant Watch. We had just recently completed the episode where Pig makes Three Letter Pie when my wife announces her intention to make said pie. Her pies are delicious, so I’m excited but not getting the connection. Soon enough, the pie is finished and she puts it on the cooling rack. I walk by and look at it and think, “Oh cute!”, but I still haven’t made the connection. She says that I’m not looking at it, so I look again and see this. Laura’s Homemade Three Letter Pie Pig’s Three Letter Pie (from Word World) Needless to say I immediately hug and kiss my wife (having FINALLY got it…I’m so slow sometimes). … Continue reading →

An Open Letter To Hugh Jackman

Dear Mr. Jackman, I am a passionate fan of your body. Of work! Body of work! Sorry. *sheepish grin* Anyways. Several years ago I was lucky enough to perform in a college production of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, which rekindled my love for the original 1954 film with the indomitable Howard Keel. Ever since then, the idea has been slowly gestating in my brain that I’d love to see the film remade, but Howard Keel is just so bloody incredible. Then it hit me: you would be the perfect person to do justice to the role of Adam Pontipee. Not as any sort of replacement or commentary on his performance, but as a modern-day counter-part or complement. Then as I continued to think about it, I started to fill out my “dream cast” and settled on Anne Hathaway as Millie (plenty of spunk and talent). I think Chris Evans … Continue reading →

Flight Thoughts (7/5/9)

Superman Movie Who wrote the music? Was DC inspired by the movie to turn Kandor into New Krypton? Why was it SOOOO melodramatic??? Of course human machines can’t read aliens just because they look physiologically similar…yeesh… Immaculate Baking Co “Bikes” Jimmy Lee Sudduth Does Grease have an ultimate home release DVD/Blu-Ray with the original songs? *tear* Palin resigns and MSNBC says that it’s a bad move – no track record VP Biden says Obama misread the economy Michael Jackson – insomnia + diprivan (anasthetic/knock out drug)…Anna Nicole Smith style ZUCA suitcase – wheels, 5 removable pouches, square flat top that supports humans

Tag…you’re it!

Tag you’re it! Once you’ve been tagged you have to write a blog with 10 weird, random, facts, habits or goals about yourself, at the end choose 10 people to be tagged, list their names and why you tagged them. Don’t forget to leave them a comment saying ‘(You’re it!) and to go read your blog. You cannot tag the person that tagged you, so since you can’t tag me back let me know when you are done so that I can go read YOUR blog answers. 1. God rules. 2. I am fascinated with American history. 3. I don’t understand art, but I appreciate it. 4. I think Walt’s idea of edutainment is brilliant. I would rather laugh at something and then be provoked into thought then just have knowledge thrown at me. 5. I currently have 12,022 songs in my iTunes which equates to 29.4 days of music. … Continue reading →

Random Iron Man References

Update: 5/5/2008 Even more Iron Man references at Ctrl+Alt+Del and Evil Inc. The Evil Inc one is actually even funnier since Tony Stark/Iron Man was a big proponent of the Super Human registration act in the recent Civil War storyline (so sue me, I read the Wikipedia entry). Update: 4/30/2008 Found another Iron Man comic references on Least I Could Do, actually a week’s worth of comics. Brilliant! Starts on 4/21 and ends on 4/24. While watching Scott Krutz draw PVP live on UStream, he mentioned his twitter post the other day about interrupting the current story line for an Iron Man gag, and I was reminded of who else has done an Iron Man joke recently.Foxtrot by Bill Amend & Ctrl+Alt+DelRandom, but enjoy.
