Missed the Debates

But I read Bob Odenkirk's latest blog post, which is pretty much the same thing.

America, it's time for change. (HOLD FOR APPLAUSE) The current city of Washington is a cesspool. (HOLD FOR APPLAUSE). It’s worse than a cesspool. It’s a bilge pond. (HOLD FOR CONFUSION) I say it’s time we wipe out Washington as we know it and establish a new city of Washington. (HOLD FOR SHOUTS OF "YOU GO, GIRL!") A city I propose that we call..."New Washington". (HOLD FOR UNCERTAIN APPLAUSE) If I run, and if I am elected -- that is, if I let you vote for me – (SWALLOW, SMILE, ADJUST CROTCH – HOPEFULLY THEY’LL HAVE A PODIUM – MUST HAVE PODIUM!)

Read the whole thing here.

Get Your Engineer On

Interesting decisions(TM) abound! Every level of "Fantastic Contraption" has any number of possible solutions. Get your little pink ball into the pink field any which way you can. I call the level pictured above "If you build it, it will fall down the hole."

I spent way too much time trying to build a walker by hooking a leg to the outside of a drive wheel.

I find this game extremely relaxing. I'm concerned that there may be something wrong with me. Play it at its own, dedicated website.

You're Safe for One More Week

Because next week Cartoon Network's [Adult Swim] starts airing episodes of "Superjail." I won't speak to what it might do to you, but it blows my mind and rocks my ass simultaneously.

I find the animation reminiscent of the work of Sally Cruikshank (notably "Face Like a Frog") in the interplay of reality and surreality, though Cruikshank's work tends towards the whimsical if somewhat insidious, whereas "Superjail" plunges directly into the downright brutal.

Become initiated by watching the pilot. (Probably best not to do this at work. Tim, wait until the kids are in bed. Or possibly wait until they've moved out entirely)

"Superjail" is painstakingly and lovingly brought to us by Augenblick Studios, who are responsible for any number of other awesome things (see their site, linked above, for proof). Explore Superjail's pedigree in the press release.

The Corpus Clock is a Chronophage

Oprah Duped By 4Chan

Eager to spook parents with pedophilia fear mongering she quoted a forum post full of 4Chan-isms, including "we do not forgive, we do not forget" and "over 9000."

Still, who's the joke really on? Millions of ignorant soccer moms just put their kids on lock down.

On MPR this morning I half-heard a story about some election. I didn't hear what they were saying, but they referred more than once to "frankenvoters."

Who and/or what are these monstrosities? Genetically engineered super-delegates? Poll participants pieced together from the parts of the parts of the population that have passed away? Demonic Democrats? Revenant Republicans? How do I find out more about them and, more importantly, more about how to defend my family from them?

HBO Options A Game of Thrones

This comes from George himself.  (Wikipedia explains the Hollywood lingo). Doesn't mean the show is happening, but it's good news in that the show isn't dead.  Ten Internets to the first person who gets what the picture is referring to. One DKP minus for bitching about the net book.

When Overqualified Jazz Musicians Go Rocker

That is the title for an intersting story NPR had on an upcomming documentary. They have the audio link up here.

Here is the blurb that goes with it

Day to Day, September 9, 2008 · Music reviewer David Was takes a look at a new documentary about the The Wrecking Crew. They were talented, but relatively unknown musicians responsible for hit songs from famous bands like The Beach Boys and the Monkees in 1960s and 1970s.

It sounds interesting, I just hope someone reminds me of this documentary when it hits DVD or, more likely. some internet video site.

If You've Seen Totoro

Otherewise enjoy it as surreal. I could have sworn I posted this video once before, though.

School has started so the kids are going to bed early at night and leaving early for school in the morning. This allows me to just grind some flowers and fishing for an hour at night. Or to just check the AH in the morning.

Blackmouth Oil is going for a gold a bottle.

Um, I guess by 'halp' I mean I need help on Theramore Isle.
