Top 10 Annoying Songs That Get Into My Brain While Walking To Work (vowels removed to protect the innocent from Googlification)I totally wanted this to be a countdown list but I can't grok the HTML necessary. So deal.
- "Landslide" -- sometimes it's even the D*x*e Ch*cks version. Ugh. That twang. That fucking banjo.
- Theme from Legend of Z*lda. The one that goes DUN dun da-du-du-du-du-du! du du du DO! du du du du DO du-du! do do-do-do, do do do-do-do, do do do-do-do DUN DUN deedle-ee deedle-ee-ee. Kill me now.
- Theme from St*r Tr*k the N*xt G*neration.
- Oh crap, it's "Landslide" again.
- "G*nius of L*ve" by T*m T*m Club. Which of course morphs into that stupid M*riah C*rey song.
- "Ban Marriage" by the Hidden Cameras [plug] See them tonight at Fez! Only $8 if you bring a war protest letter, or $10 if you're a warblogger! Doors at 8pm! [/plug]
- The entire discography of L*berty X. And Scooch. I like second stringers (third stringers?), what can I say?
- Yup, it's the fat little D*x*e Ch*ck again. Didn't her hair look silly at the Grammy Awards? High narrow hair makes your face look fatter. Trust me on that one, I live it every day.
- "The Pr*mise" by When In R*me. Should have been in Donnie Darko. You should not doubt my commitment to Sparkle Motion!
- Those G*cci magazine ads where the girl has a "G" shaved into her nether regions. I know, it's not a song, but it's BURNED INTO MY RETINAS so deeply it's starting to affect my hearing. I'd provide a link to one of the pictures but it pains me to type any related words into Google. Like, physical pain.

Give a man a fish?
At Jessie's request:
Also, I noticed yesterday that the
%20things show up when using these scripts in some browsers, like iCab. If that's the case, I think you should be able to just replace all of 'em with spaces in your browser's bookmark editor.

The building my club is in is on fire. Great.
News at 11.
Update: They put it out. I'm back in the office. I didn't even get to get carried out of the building by a strapping young firefighter. Boring!

Things I have dreamt recently.
1. I was hanging out with Mich*el J*ckson, who had had a sex change and then had himself impregnated with a child which was actually growing inside a glass globe partially embedded in his/her body.
2. Doug from Tr*ding Sp*ces was my high school chemistry teacher and one day he... actually, on second thought, I'm not going to tell this story. Rosemary has this dream sometimes, too... get HER to tell you about it.
3. (WARNING: ONE OF THOSE GEEKY THINGS I LIKE TO WRITE ABOUT COMING UP AHEAD) My web browser used all kinds of metadata so I could sort my bookmarks by time zone and whether or not they had equivalent RSS feeds. I think I was dozing off in bed with my PowerBook in my lap at the time. Sigh. I am a dork.

"i'd love to turn your scroll wheel"
I have developed something of an obsession with the Craigslist "missed connections" page... A scan through it this afternoon revealed this great little gem.
Confidential to the bf: Don't worry, I'm not looking for anything in particular. It's just for a laugh!

A few months ago, I posted some handy search popups that I cobbled together using a simple popup that Google offers to users of browsers that can't handle their über-proprietary IE/Win toolbar jobby.
I've since updated the popups quite a bit and since I still get emails from people who use them and like them, I figured I would share the wealth. Especially as I finally figured out how to make a "real" Amazon search rather than going through Kokogiak's Amazon Lite service.
But I digress. Drag these to a folder in your link bar. The last one is a modified version of the inimitable Zeldman's Resize for Cinema bookmark which I'm only including here because it's the other bookmark I reach for first when using a new terminal and I want to stash it someplace where I can google it at any time.
Some notes: The AmazonSearch will search all categories (books, DVDs, etc) in one fell swoop. The eBaySearch hits names AND descriptions. IMDbSearch will find names as well as titles. You can use quotes in your searches to find "exact sets of words" the same way you would in a normal search box. Pretty handy.

Criminy. Camino indeed.

A falafel with hot sauce, a side order of babaganoush and a seltzer, please!
Got a DVD in the mail yesterday and spent the morning watching it.
Naturally I just fast-forwarded to the bits that were filmed in the library around the corner from my apartment.
Why didn't cutie Omar Townsend make any other films? I mean aside from the whole "can't act" thing?
Alright. Fascinating stuff. I'm off to
the war protest help my pal buy an iBook and then go get some new shoes. I have a social conscience but it's working as a PA to my shopping conscience, what can I say?
p.s. V-Day was here, wish you were lovely. Had a nice evening with my sweetheart that ended with some good advice for y'all: don't go see this. Ta!

#1: I'm Fag of the Week at eastwest.nu! I've been unconscious for two days from the shock. Thanks, fellas!
#2: Today's Safari update made Signalshift* readable for me (drool). But it fucks up my entire blog's layout. What is this, some kind of freaky CSS karma? Bleh!
#3: I just realized I didn't reinstall Kung-Tunes when I wiped my drive. So according to this page, I've been listening to the same Erlend Oye song continuously for about 3 weeks straight. Oops. Fix forthcoming.

Witness: work in a gay bar long enough and believe it or not, eventually something good will come of it!
Like, say, for example, one might learn that one's favorite cat-eye glasses-wearing blond assistant DA on a certain legal drama one is obsessed with is a lipstick lesbian with a penchant for the Greatest Hits of the Bee Gees!

I tend to assume everyone who reads this is a Mac user, so if you're not, I'm sorry, you can just skip this entry entirely. Maybe one day I'll get off my ass and implement post categories.
So. My Mac peeps. On the off chance that some of you don't already read Daring Fireball, John posted a great response today to the jackass spokespeople from the Opera development team. Neener neener.
While I'm thinking of it, does anybody know how to do that cute "Welcome, Safari User" badge thing that Apple and Unsanity do? I imagine it requires some User Agent sniffing but I don't even know where to begin with things like that.
And can somebody please tell me why Services are sitting uselessly in the application menu instead of in a contextual menu item? My right mouse button is hiding under the stairs, crying softly to itself, due to neglect in OS X.

Tiger Teeth left biting at the sun (?)
There are some new mp3s up for download on Call and Response's website this week...
Make sure you get Tiger Teeth immediately. There's just something about the icy drum and vocal and bassline that... sends me. it's crying out for a remix. This is great stuff.
Bleh. Not feeling particularly eloquent today, am I?

Perfect for if you want to bring another little life into the world!
If you don't know what house that is... well, you're no longer my friend.

In a future of multi-sex, there is only one taboo! To love a robot!
It made almost no sense (and it had a kind of freaky bondage theme, but then so does almost every work of gay-oriented scifi I can think of), but the hilariously cheesy sex scenes were worth the price of admission.
Of course, the price of admission was only 25 cents.
So anyway, after I had a good giggle over the book, I looked it up online and discovered that it's selling for around $40 for a paperback.
I can't find a good shot of the cover anyplace online so maybe later I'll dust off my scanner and you can laugh at the scary wrestler dudes on the front.
