Look ma! I got me a new guestbook thingee!
(I was bored. So sue me. ;-)
Update: The damn thing actually works now.

Jesus Thinks You’re A Gas-guzzler

An evangelical Christian group plans to roll out a TV ad campaign arguing that gas-guzzlers are contrary to Christian moral teachings about protecting people and the earth. The tagline for the ads: “What Would Jesus Drive?”

Memory Lane

At Zappa Forum people are posting a truckload of Zappa pics, some of which I hadn’t seen before. There’s for instance footage from the FZ/Lennon gig, and this peculiar FZ In Japan snapshot. (Note: I discovered this thread because some of the pics are linked from my image galleries!)


My ominosity quotient? Five. I am somewhat more ominous than average.

I must be a Libra

Do you believe in astrology? I simply adore astrology. Here’s an excerpt from my horoscope for 2003, which I found particularly inventive:
“On February 16, Jupiter opposes Neptune as it does again on June 3rd. Jupiter is largesse and thinking big. We might be tempted to spend too much this year, figuring we can always use that credit card (Neptune rules oil, which produces plastic….which make credit cards).”
Well that makes perfect sense, now doesn’t it?

We must ignore all this before we go to war. We must forget.”

Silly Walks

Silly Walks Director: Hello, uh, Mrs. Twolumps, uhm, could we have two cups of coffee, please.
Mrs. Twolumps: Yes, Mr. Teabag.
Silly Walks Director: Mad as a hatter. You see, the Israelis they have a man who can take his own left leg off and swallow it with every alternate step, whereas the Japanese, cunning electronically obsessed little…

The Ministry Of Silly Walks is one of my favorite Monty Python sketches, along with, of course, the Dead Parrot Sketch. Have any favorites yourself? (More John Cleese talk here)

Why Yahoo! Sucks Big Time

I hate Yahoo. I loathe Yahoo. First they sign me up for a shitload of sponsored emails without my consent, next thing you know, they tell me my inbox is just about fullfull of the very crap they keep sending me. The choice of a new generation kids: Yahoo is toast!

GoGo Now

The Idiot Bastard Son: “Thought I’d let you know that I’ve just added a snippet of Candy Zappa singing a Bob Dylan song with Cosmik Debris author Greg Russo to my news page.”
