there’s a problem with the pumpkins

31 Oct

For reasons that still kind of elude me, this weekend involved cramming more stuff into 72 hours or so than is really possible or advisable, but a lot of it was quite a bit of fun. Still, I’m finding myself dragging a bit, largely due to sleep deficit and a few aches and pains as […]

my keyboard is lacking*

27 Oct

punctuation marks you never knew existed, including this one, the percontation point (aka “the snark mark”) indicating hidden meanings or irony: Also, the interrobang, the punctuational equivalent of OMGWTFBBQ!!!?!?!?!? : I’m not copletely sure whether some of these are actually legitimate (though I suspect they are), but I do know the written word would certainly […]

heaven knows I’m (not so) miserable now

27 Oct

—apologies – I think my footnotes are actually longer than the actual post here. Sometimes that just happens.— Despite my being occasionally morose and having a penchant for wearing a whole lot of black, I was never part of the ‘goth’ subculture* (though I have been known to appreciate the sillouette created by a well-worn […]

verily

25 Oct

Might as well continue today’s theme of frivolity, comic books and pretty girls: The only thing that end the eternal conflict between Thor and Loki: Scarlett Johanssen’s posterior. I promise, one of these days, I’ll get around to actually putting up something of substance in this space again. But not right now.

that manic pixie dream girls exist doesn’t mean you can just make up words

25 Oct

Sayeth fark dot com commenter “InmanRoshi”: [Zooey Deschanel] never was cool. She was just marketed in a way that reminded losers of the one pretty girl in high school who didn’t openly point and laugh at them. I’d say there’s a better than average chance that this statement is actually true. However, that doesn’t change […]

and that’s terrible

It’s also official DC canon, or was, before the great re-boot. I want to believe it still is, because that’s as many as four tens.

cutout xxi: thrift shop treasures and an extra bonus review

24 Oct

Took the opportunity in the last week to swap some new discs into my car box, ushering in a new population to revisit and review. Some good stuff here, again, largely a cross-section of the 90s, when I was a loyal member of the BMG record club and bought lots of things I might not […]

boring sitrep

24 Oct

Not much to report this weekend, to be honest. It was, barring a few exceptions, both brief and disconcertingly chronic (which I’m not ready to go into, even obliquely), quiet and relatively stress-free. I spent a bit of the early part of the weekend running one particular kid to and from school activities, and handled […]

that just about covers it

21 Oct

I’ve done some talk about the differences between generations a bit in this space over the years. However, I don’t think I’ve ever quite managed hit the nail on the head quite as hard as Mr. Matt Honan has in his post entitled Generation X Doesn’t Want to Hear It. But that’s okay. Generation X […]

friday random ten: “falcon punch” edition

21 Oct

It’s turning into one of those lazy sort of Fridays, where I’m getting a few things done, but really don’t have much ambition about it. The rest of the weekend, other than running a few kids a few places, is looking pretty much the same. I can live with that. Incidentally, I woke up with […]
