Found it!

October 28, 2012

The Eureka was one of the last car ferries to actively work the San Francisco Bay. It’s now in the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park, and you can tour it (and other cool boats) for a mere $5.

Addressing a trend

October 25, 2012

I’ve been getting more than my fair share of comment spam recently (not quite enough that I’m ready to use one of those “prove you’re human” things). Lately, one of the topics is HCG diets. Let me make one thing perfectly crystal clear about HCG: it is the only diet drug required by the FDA […]

Music Monday: Musicology and Modern Popular Music

October 22, 2012

Free term theme idea: Recurring Thematic Material in the Collected Works of Flo Rida. If one were to listen to his entire discography, how many songs would seem to reference oral sex? Regrettably, there doesn’t seem to be an official music video I could embed. In Closing: a bounty I hope gets paid; waaah, the media […]

Beneath the Shorties

Music Monday: Not Exactly a White Wedding

October 15, 2012

I saw this picture and immediately thought of this song (which is not easy to play, so kudos to this guy for finding the energy to smile):   There are recordings of the composer playing this on wax cylinder.

Oh sure, I totally know him.

October 11, 2012

I’m blaming Busted Knuckles for invoking his name in comments: In Closing: effing candyman; maybe a clue why is in the previous post’s comments?; follow up; more follow up (attackers knew irony?); Military wants to save you $3,000,000,000 but Congress won’t let them; sorry Wendy, when you serve burgers in paper wrappers on plastic trays, you […]

Old Time Religion

October 9, 2012

Today, a bunch of men in another part of the world were so threatened by the very idea that a woman might learn something that they shot a 14 year old girl as she rode home from school in a bus. What a bunch of big, manly men that they had to go shoot a teenager […]

What did I tell you?

October 4, 2012

Back in July, I talked about turkey sandwiches being dressed up in Thanksgiving condiments.

It is returning to the carry out restaurant world from which it came first. Einstein Bros […]
