DNA music

DNA codes may be protected as ‘music’: “The plan is to convert a DNA sequence the order of the four chemicals that form the genetic code of a plant or animal into a piece of digitally encoded music that can then be copyrighted like any other tune.”
Let’s turn this around for a moment and consider what a DNA-string would look like had it been constructed from such tunes as, oh say Hungry Freaks, Daddy, or G-Spot Tornado, or The Black Page!…

Dehydrated Water available at last!

At first I thought it was a joke, but it seems that you really can buy it in Buy Dehydrated Water.com.
Dehydrated water is compact, lightweight, easy to store, and perfect to take wherever you go.
And best of all, it contains no calories nor any fat.
They even accept credit cards and paypal payments.
Cool!

If I Had A Hammer

Miserable Melodies: Experience little known vocal talents of such greats as Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner, Burt Reynolds, and even Jack Webb. Happy listening…

Operation Clambake

Operation Clambake, known for its activism against the Scientology Church, has been censored by Google. The site is now indexed again, thanks to the big noise made by independent webloggers across the world.
(Would’ve posted this earlier had I not been so busy moving this page’s content to Movable Type…)

Beautiful poems

I just read this page and I’m emotionally drained. These are the most beautiful poems I’ve ever read, I just had to share them with you.
For those of you who don’t know Jack Schitt, well, get to know him!

MST3K

I really miss the glory days of Mystery Science Theatre 3000. Here is a complete list of Zappa references made on the show

Become a volunteer!

It saddens the high levels of violence against inocent shopping carts…Now, YOU can help preventing harm against them: here’s the Center for Shopping Carts Abuse Prevention, a useful page to bookmark. If you are are a compulsive shopping cart rapist, you can even go to the confessional and get some relief on your sins…

HotPoop Nouveau

Hey ho let’s go! I’ve made a couple of changes to this page; including the introduction of a homegrown comment system. Let’s see if it works…

As per the good

As per the good Dr’s request here are Mike Keneally’s 1988 tour diraries. Be warned, it will take about a month to read the whole thing. It does drag on a bit and you will learn way too much about Mikes diet, but this is the most detailed and informative behind the scenes account of life on the road with Frank you will ever see. For a shorter but equally interesting read check out Mike’s self penned bio where he tells (among other things) the story of how he got the job playing with Frank. For those of you out there still unfamiliar with Mike Keneally and Beer For Dolphins……. FOR SHAME!!! Get some of his CD’s, truly fantastic music, not to be missed!

I should have posted

I should have posted this link before, but I spent the last 3 hours and a half hooked on it: yes, it’s The Arse Race! Enjoy!

More on names and

More on names and lists: this MSNBC article recommends searching for yourself online to see what the net knows about you. “Two week ago, MSNBC.com shared the story of Donna, who looked up her name in the Google search engine and found her own credit card number posted online. Inspired by that piece, readers have been searching for information about themselves online with alarming success.”
I did a search and find out my name will be placed on the STARDUST spacecraft, which will visit Comet Wild 2 in 2004 (!!!). It seems my credit card numba won’t appear there -I hope so…

I just came across

I just came across this list of entertainers blacklisted due to their “offensive” views. Offensive to Republicans that is. Read on past the list onto the following comments. My favorite has to be, “McCarthy was right.” Jezus, people scare the shit out of me sometimes.
