Only the good die young, my friend. Which is why we're all still alive.
Konrad Lorenz, dead at 90. No, you probably don't know who he is, but I am certain you are familiar with his work.
Chuck Berry remembers fateful phonecall.
She must be pure evil then
Greatest proof of the rule stated by Haz must be Leni Riefenstahl. I wonder how many Holocaust survivors (good or bad) made it to 101.
"Ignorance is a pretty damned effective excuse."
ZOMG! Sam Anders really IS a cylon!
In a wetsuit.
Because he's bald.
On his butt.
I am thinking I am going nuts. Two weeks left of class and almost something due every day now. Plus the aggravation of one of my projects being ruined isn't helping out. Oh well. I am not sure how much longer I can take having maybe 4 hours of sleep per night over a week anymore.
Also this past weekend driving the race car was somewhat of a success. I will write about it and post some pics when I get the time.
Beat ya to it
deal or no deal
is on tv right now and I can not watch it.....
No it was a car like this,
Also I found out we are on Wikipedia
I'm guessing The Stig needn't worry yet.
I need more sleep!
Although, for him to worry he would have to have human emotions, which both you and I know he doesn't have.
Some say that his skin has the texture of a dolphin?s, and where ever you are in the world if you tune your radios to 88.4, you can actually hear his thoughts...
They need to make a really solid BSG game.
Could it be that absinthe is not all it's cracked up to be? Or is this bad science?
Drink enough of anything, especially poorly distilled 140 proof anything, and you're gonna see some crazy sh!t.
I don't know anyone who's drunk absinthe (the European, the new American, the "classic" or the homemade varieties) and contends that it provides anything other than a really nice, enjoyable, potent drinking experience. Just as vodka, whiskey, wine and beer induce different "styles" of inebriation (due largely but not exclusively to their chemical origins), absinthe can simply be added to that list.
I've never hallucinated while drinking it, though it does seem to spur creativity and imagination without making you stupid(er) ... think pot or cocaine but minus the day-after "what the hell was I thinking?" retrospective.
As for the report in the link, who knows. I don't have the chemistry background to refute or support their findings. I would, however, be interested if the same scientists can pinpoint the chemical in gin that makes you punch your best friend in the face.
"It makes a man mean!"
I'm just not a fan of absinthe. I like licorice but for some reason, absinthe doesn't do it for me.
Hollywood is at it again:
REMAKE - Land of the Lost, and it's a comedy starring Will Ferrell no less.
SEQUEL - Power of the Dark Crystal - I...nevermind.
WHAT'S NEXT? - A live-action Clutch Cargo? Lemme guess, a dark comedy starring Robin Williams?
Although I think I would enjoy Carrier*. Of course, that isn't 're-imagined', so +1 for that.
*Needs more cowbell. Or Dave Gray. Same thing.
Power of the Dark Crystal has been in "early development" and "pre-production" stages for 3 years now. I was beginning to wonder if it was ever going to happen. Its kind of hard to find but if you can find the artwork that they created for it it really is stunning. And since MOST of it is to be done in the style of the original (i.e. puppetry over CGI and CGI only where needed) I was really looking forward to it! But I was a big fan of "Farscape", and the old "Storyteller" series' on tv so generally I like the Henson Company's work.
Everything else on that list can go "suck an elf!"
"Storyteller" is a near-forgotten classic, one of the great family* shows of all time. Glad to see it still has fans beyond my immediate family and friends.
*read: suitable for, but not exclusively for, kids; see also: Pixar
To those who didn't make it, you missed a great bachelor party, which included liquor, good friends, and Peaches getting a lap-dance. Yes, the apocalypse is upon us.
When Trent Reznor talks, the internet melts.
A major prize! A major prize! I won, I won, I won! Look at that. Look at that!
Charles Shultz + Alan Moore = WIN
