Best logo of the week:


For weeks, I've been trying to get a nice day to go to the driving range and hit some balls.

A) 100 balls is $10
B) I suck.
C) Good times.
D) The good news is that instead of having old retired men in the shed out back filling buckets with balls, they've purchased a fancy golf-ball dispensing machine. I pay my $10 and get a code, which I then punch into a keypad on the machine. Then I hang a bucket onto a spout and it scientifically dispenses 100 golfballs. I know that because the display counts up to 100.

New Home, part II

I've switched over to new hosting for the blog, located now at Still using the engine (for now at least) to post and what not. I have had the domain name for a while now, and it turned out to be cheaper to move it to a hosting service ( than just sitting on it.

Beyond that, I have no (concrete) plans.

Also, I got rid of the haloscan comments and went with the intergrated comment system. In the process, I accidentally deleted a couple of ongoing conversations. Sorry.

And so far, I recommend the service. It seems like too good of a deal.

Hey, how 'bout that!

You'd think they'd get old, but not for me. I love a good Star Trek returns to modern day Earth romp. This time it was the crew of Voyager returning to 1997 to stop Dr. Earlich from blowing up time. I probably wouldn't have liked it nearly as much if my favorite foul-mouthed comedienne wasn't in it.

Fireworks University!

I'm watching the Dirty Jobs show, and they're doing an insect lab place. I am alternately going "cool" and preventing upchuck. Millipedes? Cool. Carnivorous spiders? Crushing the feed crickets? Predatory underwater beetles? Heebie jeebie!

(I like the cool "The Tick" antennae on the millipede. And how they curl up defensively. And how some of them defensively secrete hydrogen cyanide gas. I wish I could do that.)

Fair and Balanced

"The candidates that can't face Fox, can't face Al Qaeda. And that's what's coming."
-- Fox News president Roger Ailes, on Dems declining debate on his network

OK, so I agree that a candidate ought to be able to handle going onto Fox news. But the latter half of the quote is pure fear mongering. Asshole.

Of course, nothing beats Wolf Blitzer asking senators, governors and the other candidates to raise their hands if they agree with something. Classy!

I saw some of this thing, and the audio people were terrible. Do you hear all the noise? That was on the air.
