I’m not that much of a celebrity – 1

Saturday, November 4th, 2017

If I was Ray Liotta, every time one of my friends did something that I didn’t like, or made a humorous wisecrack at my expense, I would good-naturedly punch my right fist into my left palm and say “Why I LI-oughta!..” like in an old gangster movie. I’m just saying that if I was Ray […]

The clicking is deafening!

Monday, October 30th, 2017

I’ve been updating my Link Din stuff. Every interaction with someone causes Link Din to automatically prompt you to send a thank you message. Thing is, I’m the kind of person who does that anyway. Doing stuff on Link Din feels like when your mom told you to do something polite that you were already […]

Excerpt from “The Future and History of netdud”

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

” Once again, netdud found himself transported back in time.  This time it was the medieval times or whatever.  People were all like, “Yo dawg, you’re a demon and stuff!” and one really big knight guy rushed at him, pulling his halberd from its sheath and brandishing it all menacingly and looking really tough. netdud […]

Something about getting a “charge” out of this

Monday, August 12th, 2013

Most big batteries (like the batteries in laptops and tools and phones) are actually just a bunch of smaller battery cells wired together.

The netdud Smashing Disaster!

Friday, March 22nd, 2013

Bumped into the nice folks from Mississippi River Distilling, who make, among other things, River Baron Artisan Spirit.  I bought a bottle, because I am an early adopter of beverage innovations.  You can read all about the liquour on their page.  It’s quite interesting on its own, but opens a lot of interesting doors for […]

The Internets

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

As Thoreau insisted, the Internets is indeed an information super-highway.   And if you are in a wreck by the side of that highway, your vehicle shattered, your body broken, your hope in ruins, and you stand waving your arms and asking for aid, you can count on a constant stream of people to come […]

Happy Father’s Day

Sunday, June 19th, 2011

What every woman should do today: – Call up an ex-boyfriend on the phone. – When they answer, say in as flat a tone as you can “It’s [your name] Happy Father’s Day.” – Count the seconds of silence, and post your best score in the comments.  

Leftover rules.

You should do everything I say. But I don’t have to tell you that.

The conversation ends here.

“You’ll never guess what I found in my ear!” “Well, it’s really more a of MUSIC COLLECTIVE than a band…” “I’ve always been a songwriter.  I mean, I write lyrics.  I just need someone to write the music for them.” “This tastes JUST LIKE [meat], but it’s made from [not meat]!” “How do you know […]
