I forget something new every day

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017

I never noticed before how close the words “buffet and “bugger” are if you are typing.   That’s pretty handy. Keyboards must have been designed that way on purpose.

Not currently in Denmark

Monday, December 9th, 2013

I just saw this. What kind of world do we live in where it takes a threat to the entire planet to get famous people to pose naked with dead fish? When I was a kid, people were much more caring. Why, all it would take is a mugging or a minor flood and the street […]

We like to go out for home-style cookin’

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

Kids, please. You have GOT to calm the hell down, because you are making the Ineerweebs boring by whining about the same things over and over, every time a big shiny new movie comes out based on a book or a comic or something else that you care about. And it’s only going to get […]

Fructus pie fugit

Sunday, November 18th, 2012

Just in case the weaker among you think I don’t understand your pain: I was at a grocery store yesterday. The Hostess stuff was pretty much all gone, and right next to the nearly-bare shelves a dude from Little Debbie’s was PACKING their shelves with product. I mean that he was there for at least […]

netdudian slip

Monday, March 26th, 2012

  I was just about to type F.O. into something I was writing* and my mind wandered and I typed “cuckoo” instead. I now hereby announce and lay claim to the term “netdudian slip,” which is the opposite of a Freudian slip.       *It was in context, hilarious, and in sign language.  Absolutely […]

Where do you FIND this stuff?

Sunday, March 11th, 2012

I read a LOT. I use an RSS reader (Right now, I use Vienna on my Mac.  It’s good.) and get somewhere over 2000 stories a day in there.  Because I follow a bunch of shopping feeds, and shopping feeds just crank out posts, about half of that number is completely irrelevant on any given day, […]

15 Books – The Facebook thing

Saturday, November 27th, 2010

This is one of those things that people tag other people to do on Facebook:  “Name 15 books That Influenced You.”  I got tagged, but I’m not really a chain-lettery person, so this gives me a great excuse for a blog post.  I’m not going to take to long to think about it, and I […]

Nobody asked about my guitar rig.

Monday, November 1st, 2010

Since I’m probably going to be writing a bunch of stuff about guitar gear, I thought I would start with what I use right now.  As long as it is, this is mostly just an overview of what’s where, what isn’t, and why.  Seriously.  I can nerd right out on this stuff. I’ve played bass […]

Hey! Look over here!

No! Not here! Here!
