A Homer, and proud of it

“Lisa, if you don’t like your job, you don’t strike. You just go in every day and do it really half-assed. That’s the American way!” Well, you’re really really lazy. You manage to get by, but you never put any effort into anything you do. You most likely enjoy watching TV, sleeping, eating, and doing stuff of the sort. Get active. You’re a fat, lazy idiot.

Questionable taste



A peculiar yet very entertaining daily read: BartCop.

I Agree With Pat Metheny

Pat Metheny on Kenny G: “He, in one move, through his unbelievably pretentious and calloused musical decision to embark on this most cynical of musical paths, shit all over the graves of all the musicians past and present who have risked their lives by going out there on the road for years and years developing their own music inspired by the standards of grace that Louis Armstrong brought to every single note he played over an amazing lifetime as a musician.”
Richard Thompson agrees. (via David)

When all else fails: a quiz!

You are: Morally deficient.
You are corrupting our children with pornography and calling to sex education! They should be left to figure out their bodies on their own, and told about the birds and bees on their 21st birthday. Threat rating: Medium. Your total lack of decent family values makes you dangerous, but we can count on some right wing nutter blowing you up if you become too high profile.”
What threat to the Bush administration are you?


… an “intimate music portrait of American composer Frank Zappa”. Anyone ever seen this? (via thebignote)

Metallica’s Lars Ullrich has finally lost all contact with planet earth, taking legal action against independant Canadian rock band Unfaith over what they feel is unsanctioned usage of two chords the band has been using since 1982 : E and F.

Appliantology Continued

Along with the new Mac, I got myself one of these sweet babies. It captures audio and video from older media, like audio cassettes and VHS tapes and converts them into high quality digital files. Looks like pretty soon I’ll have to be surgically removed from the chair in front of the computer.

More appliantology? Hunting for Bambi: “Men pay anywhere from $5000 to $10,000 for the chance to come to the middle of the desert to shoot what they call “Bambis” with a paint ball gun. The men get a video tape of their hunt to take home and show their friends.”

Cover story

I’d always imagined this was taken in holland. Don’t know why – was completely wrong though.

Blessed relief for UK stressed smokers: realistic stickers to cover up the real health warnings on UK cigarette packets. Pretty cul!


Ascii, ascii, ascii, almost as much fun as Itchy & Scratchy.

Sure thing! Hey darlin’, can I buy you a couple o’ drinks, hmmm? Your place or mine?

Shoulda Bought The Acid

The Acid Store is now closed. During the three days in which it was online, the number of downloads amounted to 6.1GB. For obvious reasons, future online Friday Boots will probably suffer a similarly short availability.

Structured Procrastination

“All procrastinators put off things they have to do. Structured procrastination is the art of making this bad trait work for you.” I’ll surely be reading this interesting essay sometime soon. Just not now. Later.
