When it rains, it pours. In more ways than one, I am in high demand right now, and the supply is limited. This is why it’s a bit quiet ’round these parts. I had intended to write something about how April 20, 2006 is the 15 year anniversary of the loss of my virginity, but I decided you don’t really need to know all those details. (Not those details, pervs. I was just going to tell a story.) But time is precious, and it would take me too long to churn out that story at the moment.
So, I give to you some other good things to keep you occupied. (All of these things are linked from my sidebar over there, but I have a sneaking suspicion that no one ever actually looks at those links…)
Copy, Right? - Collections of cover tunes to download, mostly of the odd or obscure variety. Priceless gems to be found there, but you gotta keep up. Liza only leaves the links up for a limited time.
videos.antville.org - A daily dose of some of the best (and worst) in the world of music videos. (Since you can’t really find these on TV anymore.)
Q: How do you do dat? Does the Post Office allow this?
A: Listen, don’t try this at home. We are professionals with professional mailing expertise trained by professional experts with special professional permits. You have no idea what we went through to get the required license from the U-nited States P.O. to do this. First there were forms; then more forms and more forms. Then came the interviews, the background checks, the fingerprinting, the retinal scans, the certifications, the double secret swear. A few of us are still in therapy.
I just think this is such a cool idea, I have to pimp it out some.
The Comics Curmudgeon - Making fun of the funny pages. In a loving way.
And while you’re looking for ways to pass the time, if you’re a fan of animation, consider signing my petition to Cartoon Network to cease airing live action programming. I know there are worse things out there in the world to rage against, but cartoons are one of the things I credit with helping me maintain the little bit of sanity I’ve got left while dealing with all of those things (granted, that’s not a lot), and dammit, I want CARTOON Network to keep showing them. Yes, petitions are passé, but I’ve never claimed to be one of the cool kids.
