Honest. But I wasn’t feeling real good for a couple of days, then I got distracted this afternoon. You see, I was perusing Bangshift, as you do, and came across this article about a nut who put an old aircraft engine into an old Toyota MR2 and raced it in the 24 Hours of LeMons. [...]

Well, I completely forgot about logging in and posting anything yesterday. Pretty much this is what the bulk of my day consisted of. Pressure-cooking beans. Then Joel and I went out to dinner, came back home, and watched Smokey And The Bandit, which Joel had borrowed from the library. Today, I began the annual holiday [...]
Stupid things I have been thinking of lately: Dung beetles fighting over doody. We have dung beetles around here, actually. Out in the Flint Hills. When you go out on the gravel roads along cow pastures, it is not uncommon to see a beetle rolling a poo-pellet along the ground. Or several beetles quarreling over [...]
So, my dumb ass has decided to participate in NoBloPoMo, or whatever the hell they call it. Because I am crazy. Also because I feel like I could use a swift blogging kick in the pants and that may be the boot to administer it. Or something like that. And because it is late and [...]

Slade pretty much owns over Quiet Riot. QR basically made their fortune in America as a Slade cover band, but they lacked something crucial. Noddy Holder. Good lord, I love the bassline of this song. It literally makes me happy. A little better effort than on Mama Weer All Crazy, but still…I gotta say I [...]
Most people are seriously more articulate than I am…and it appears that some of us are feeling a particular malaise these days. I just read Sarah Spahr’s entry for today and thought, “gosh, she pretty much said just and exactly what’s on my mind right about now” as regards Norway, Amy Winehouse, and just generally [...]
I’m sure many eyes will roll, but I’m going to let Detroit tell it like it is. Summer’s here, and the time is right: Incidentally, I’d like to note that I freakin’ love that striped, double-breasted suit. There were some seriously cute fashions in the 1960s. More Martha & the Vandellas, singing about a Heatwave! [...]
a Honda Accord? This tickled my funnybone today. I’d been wanting to hear Janis Joplin’s famous “Mercedes Benz” and came across the parody. I must say that whomever it was sang this song did a damn fine job of mimicking Joplin’s iconic gravelly wail. Ace stuff. And while I’m on the Janis tear, here are [...]
I have become ridiculously fond of the Black Dice and other similar bleep-gizzle-frunzzzz type music. It is completely fantastic if you like weird music made up of random electronic bonking noises and zoinky sounds and general chopped-stirred-and-fried bleep-gleep effects. At work, we are allowed to listen to streaming ‘net radio, so long as we either [...]
Mistake: listening to Prince while reviewing concrete contracting documents. Phrases like “coordinate with other trades as required for any penetrations, embedded items, or sequence of work issues” and “reinforcing steel to be furnished by Concrete Contractor,” suddenly become fraught with nasty, dirty double entendre.
