I love this blog: PencilRevolution.com! It’s basically a review site and cool things all revolving around pencils…
Gosh, I think I’m in love!
And so, what do I find, but Klingon Fairy Tales. I think my favorite is
“The Hare Foolishly Lowers His Guard and Is Devastated by the Tortoise, Whose Prowess in Battle Attracts Many Desirable Mates”
Looking around the same site, I found Ten Precepts from The Art of War that Never Made it Past Sun Tzu’s Editor which includes the great suggestion
All warfare is based on deception. When the enemy draws near to you, cry out, “Look out behind you.” When he turns to look behind him, attack.
Blindside is coming out with a new album, “The Great Depression,” and I’m totally rocking out to their first single. Check out the video for “Fell in Love with the Game” here. The video looks like it’s straight out of our favorite love-to-hate or hate-to-love HBO foulmouthed series “Deadwood.” So freakin’ cool.
You know, I guess I’m easily amused. I like poop jokes, sometimes.
For example, there’s this sign in the men’s bathroom at Pacific Beverage. Over the toilet, it reads:
We aim to please.
You aim too, please.
After three weeks, it still cracks me up.
Jean Marie is here in SLO! Oh, happy days!!!
Finally, the first day I’ve been at Pacific Beverage, and haven’t wanted to kill myself on my way out the door… It’s been a really good day, which means
Still, though, I definitely have problems. Can’t get the car smogged until I get an inconsistent idle fixed, and that might be expensive. Can’t get the car regisitered until it’s smogged, and I’ve got a fix-it ticket that will be expensive unless I get it registered by the end of the month. I can’t sell the car to mom until it’s registered….
What a headache!
I’m looking forward to the weekend. Kristen’s meeting my folks for the first time and I’m stealing my sister to the Central Coast for a week. It sounds like the first time I’ll be able to take a deep breath for a long time.
Speaking as someone who enjoys his media without dealing with problems such as… legality or whatnot, I found this article really interesting. It is a discussion of copyfighting for newbies, and brought to light a bunch of stuff I didn’t know.
There are so many times when I’m talking to Kristen, or anybody (but mostly Kristen), about my media collection habits, and she wonders why I get angry about certain things… You see, according to another site, Downhill Battle, services such as iTunes (among others) claim that they’re fair for artists, but the artists still get only 9-11 cents a song. That just seems a little wrong.
Alright, I’ll shutup now… but still.
