Leave it up to my fellow dancer friends to think up something that’s equally entertaining and potentially useful. To my non-Lindy-Hop reader friends… one thing you should know: In general, it’s a major faux pas to wear high heels when swing dancing. The follow’s balance tends to be off, the guys are afraid of getting… Continue reading Hydraulic shoes for dancers and other women
Anyone have any idea what this animal is? I saw him in a park in St. Louis, Missouri, and I’ve been wondering ever since. And since his home sort of complements my new blog colors, I figured it was high time to feature him here. 😀
After all the serious posts about geek stuff, I figured it was time to throw in a bit of levity again. So here’s a sample I’ve lovingly clipped from The Blender’s “Aunt Sue’s Ant Soup.” Here’s a bit about this song and the group behind it… plus — I know you’re craving this — the… Continue reading Fun music clip – Aunt Sue’s Ant Soup
The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences has various “kids” lyrics pages… one of which has the lyrics and midi file for Little Shop of Horror’s “Suddenly Seymour” song [note: midi file plays when page is loaded]. Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE this musical and quite like that specific song as well. But if… Continue reading WTF entry of the day: Government endorses cannibalistic plants!

I now understand that the meaning of life is goverened not by evolution, nor by the number 42, but rather by the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Also, I’ve come to realize that steadfastly believing in the THEORY of gravity is very foolhardy. I overlooked Intelligent Falling!
So I’m listening to Internet radio and, without noticing the current title playing, marveling at a rich and engaging orchestral piece I don’t recognize. Holy smokes… it’s from the first Pokemon movie?! Studio execs hired a decent full orchestra AND reasonably talented composer/arranger for THAT??? Just goes to show you that, even in the most… Continue reading On life’s little surprises
After being bored with the ever-changing-but-still-pathetic Nigerian 409 e-mail scams, I was delighted to be the e-recipient of a Nigerian scam that — at least in its newness — is moderately entertaining. I include it below in its entirety for your edification. I always look forward to this kind of day to come which I… Continue reading Adam as a petting "Sugar Mummy"?!
Check out the video of Store Wars, featuring Obi Wan Cannoli and Darth Tater… and lots of laughs! I actually have very mixed feelings about some of the “evils” it raises — genetic engineering of plants and food irradiation in particular — but on the whole, I do believe in supporting organic farming. I think… Continue reading Store Wars: A very funny animation of good and evil (food)
