Weekend Wrapup

Monday, May 31st, 2004

Hope y’all are having a nice Mem Day weekend. Ours has been pretty good, even though I haven’t gotten a chance to watch any war movies on tv. Saturday night we went out with friends Cheri and Jimmy to see Margaret Cho at the Pittsburgh Improv. I’ve been a fan of Margaret’s for many years […]

Apart from the Heavy Drug Use and Random Tit Flashing, It’s True!

Which Rock Chick Are You?

How Cool is This?

Thursday, May 27th, 2004

Yesterday was Peter Cushing’s birthday, today is CHRISTOPHER LEE’s! Isn’t that interesting? You just can’t make stuff like that up.

Give Princess Leia a Bitch-Slap for Me!

Wednesday, May 26th, 2004

Today, folks, is Peter Cushing’s birthday! Most Gen-Xers and younger know him as Grand Moff Tarkin, the elegantly sadistic Imperial officer who put that obnoxious bad-acting Leia wench in her place so beautifully in “Episode 6″, formerly known as Star Wars. Before that, he made a career in Hammer horror movies, usually as the scientist, […]

Take This Yard and Shove It

Monday, May 24th, 2004

For once I’m glad it’s Monday. We spent almost the whole weekend doing nasty yard work! We put in some edging bricks and cleaned up three 30-Gallon bags full of just those goddamn little Maple tree propeller thingies!! Yeesh. I loathe yard work. I just can’t bring myself to care how my yard looks. If […]

Who Wants Yellow Fever?

Friday, May 21st, 2004

I do, I do! NOT! Welcome to another summer season in beautiful malarial Pittsburgh. It has rained every day for the past 6 days, we’re at about 85 degrees, and I’d guess 250% humidity. The ground is so full of water it resembles a swamp, and the air is full of nasty stinging insects that […]

Moondust Will Cover You, Again

Wednesday, May 19th, 2004

Monday night was the long-awaited Pittsburgh David Bowie show. The voice, the face, the hair, the benediction of The Divine Presence, I’ve written all about at length before. I refer you to my original ‘Moondust Will Cover You’ post about the Cleveland show in January for all that. Same goes for the setlist, what Dave […]

Whew!

Tuesday, May 18th, 2004

The WB network has announced its fall 2004/05 lineup, and I’m happy to report that Grounded For Life will be back for another season. Whew! I dunno what I would have done if they’d cancelled it, and I’d have to go without my weekly Donal fix. I’d probably end up going on a random shooting […]

Tales of Brave Odysseus

Sunday, May 16th, 2004

Before I start this, I need to get one thing off my chest: Practically every male in Troy had at least one mostly-or-more-undressed scene, EXCEPT for Sean Bean!WhatTheFuck?!? Bastards! Right, now we can proceed. I could say a whole lot about Troy, but I really don’t think it’s worth the expenditure of words. (So I […]

I Am Not Info-Tained

Thursday, May 13th, 2004

Now I remember why I never watch TV except for old movies and the Donal show. Last night, Boy Wonder and I sat down to watch a special about Troy (the quasi-historical place, not the movie) on the Discovery Channel. Granted, my main reason for watching was because they promised sneak peeks of Troy, the […]

This Aggression Will Not Stand, Man!

Tuesday, May 11th, 2004

Alrighty! I got my tix for the third annual Lebowski Fest! What the heck is Lebowski Fest? It’s a big sort of convention/party for freaks who like the Cohen Brothers’ masterwork, The Big Lebowski a litttle toooo much. BW and I fall firmly into that category, so this June 18 we’ll be road-tripping down to […]

Beauty is Truth, Truth Beauty.

Monday, May 10th, 2004

Every year about this time, People Magazine puts out it’s 50 Most Beautiful People edition, and every year I bitch and moan and gripe about it. I’d like to say that I object on some high-falutin’ moral or ethical grounds, but it really just boils down to: they never include any of MY favorite hotties! […]

Games Kitties Play

Sunday, May 9th, 2004

It looks like the warm weather is here to stay, and that means that my cat Gandalf is really in the mood to play his favorite game. It’s called, “Find the Hairball!”

I Heard You Missed Us, We’re Back!

Saturday, May 8th, 2004

Hey everybodyyyyy! I am set up on my new (and hopefully last-ever) server, and it wasn’t as long and drawn-out and painful as I thought it would be! Thanks in large part to the combined skilz of Boy Wonder and LinuxKidd who is just, like….some kinda demi-god, or something. Thank you, LK! Anyway, during our […]

“After the Turn of the Century, in the Clear Blue Sky over Germany…”

Sunday, May 2nd, 2004

Achtung all Snoopy fans! Did you know that there really was a Red Baron? Maybe I’m just stupid, but for the longest time, I thought that he was just a character made up by Charles Schulz. I didn’t find out the truth until High School, then I quickly developed an obsession with the man and […]
