“Consider it broughten!!!”

Friday, April 29th, 2005

Well, well…some excellent news from the geek gossip front. Seems like geek icon Kevin Smith (of ‘Clerks’, etc. fame) has seen an advance screening of Episode 3, and he LOVED it! That gives me a good feeling. I’m not a big fan of Smith’s by any account, but just based purely on the “Death Star […]

“Shift” into High Gear!

Tuesday, April 26th, 2005

So I bought that FrameShift cd with Sebastian on vocals. I was pretty leery of it, as I am of all things labelled “prog rock”, but I have to say, this puppy ROCKS! I can’t stop listening to it!! If you like metal — buy it! If you like Sebastian — buy it! If you […]

Blah de blah

Monday, April 25th, 2005

Had a quite bori…uh…relaxing weekend. Actually, a couple of cool things. Loup surprised me with a goody bag of lil’ gifts…retro magnets, a Foamy pin, Johnny Cash sticker, a double-feature film noir dvd, all so cool! Thanks girl! Then on Saturday BW and I had a nice ‘date night’ out to Girasole. Mmmm. Otherwise, boring. […]

How Ya Like Me Now?

Friday, April 22nd, 2005

So, welcome to the redecorated Tarsier Blog. LK updated my version of WordPress, and one of the things LOUP told me was that it was gonna be way easier to use themes n’ such, so of course I was all over that. This current theme is called China Red, and I got it at […]

Random Shit

Thursday, April 21st, 2005

And now another one of Those Things! What order do you put on your clothes? undies, socks, bra, bottom, top Are you generally on-time, early or late? Early. Result of being an INTJ. Do you have an organized wallet? Yeah. Do you ask for and/or accept help? Hrmm. Not particularly. What is one personality trait […]

Pictures of You

Wednesday, April 20th, 2005

I don’t know why, but I am addicted to those site where you can make little images/avatars of yourself. I guess it’s because I still like to play dress-up (or maybe because I look much better in pixels.) When Tim the Enchanter tried to show me how to play City of Heroes, I spent hours […]

Hottie Reality

Tuesday, April 19th, 2005

LOUP and I were talking yesterday and came up with what we thought might make an interesting blog topic: who is the hottest -real life- person you know of? No celebrities here, just everyday folks. I’ll put down some ground rules: 1. Preferably, the person should be someone you’ve spoken to/are at least slightly acquainted […]

Busy, Busy

Monday, April 18th, 2005

That was our weekend. Friday night BW’s astronomy club was having a star party at their observatory. BW usually goes to those solo, but he wanted me to come to at least one, just to see what it was like. We drove waaaaaaaaaayyyyy the hell out to Deliverance country, PA, almost ran into a deer […]

Happy Bean Day!

“Let us praise him with great praise!” –JRR Tolkien Oh yeah, it’s Sean Baby’s birthday! Go out and hoist a pint at the pub! Cheer on the Sheffield Blades! Bite, pour, spit, tamp, prime, and Fire off a Baker rifle! (but be sure to aim proper!) Kill hordes of orcs and show that pussy Aragorn […]

Ghetto Samurai

Friday, April 15th, 2005

Was riding the bus home yesterday when, at one of the stops in Tha Hood(tm), a Baby Mama(tm) got on with three “babies” in tow. As she herded them into their seats, I clearly heard her call one of them Akira. “Akira, you sit down here” Akira? Like Akira Kurosawa? Like this Akira?? Ooooooooooooooooooookay. That’s […]

Spring Fling

Wednesday, April 13th, 2005

Spring is the time when young people’s fancies turn to thoughts of hotties. As promised, here are some scans from my 50 Greatest Movie Stars issue of Premiere. (Plus some bonus classic hotties.) Gary Cooper was #42. While that’s far too low, on the other hand according to Hitchhiker’s Guide the number 42 IS the […]

Pimp My Olds

Monday, April 11th, 2005

Yesterday, we’re driving through tha hood on our way home and we spy an average hood-dweller, cruising down the street with the bass all cranked and vibrating his car, leaning way back, wearing the do-rag, driving with one hand, checking out tha hood wimmen……. IN AN OLDSMOBILE!! Yeah, you know we pointed and laughed.

Screwing up the Bell Curve Since 1972

Friday, April 8th, 2005

Last night we got a call from somebody taking a survey. Sometimes I do those, sometimes I don’t, but THIS one was about upcoming movies, so I was like morally obligated to do it. Oh dear gawd, was it awful. I had to sit through descriptions of three upcoming romantic comedy/chick flixs starring, respectively, Cameron […]

Anarchy in the UK

Thursday, April 7th, 2005

I’ll admit it, I like Prince Charles. I think he’s a very smart guy who is always getting screwed by the vicious and airheaded public. In the Charles vs. Princess Died media wars, I was always firmly in Charles’ camp. I was so excited about his and Camilla’s upcoming wedding. But now….ugh…now I think he […]

We luv Bitchin’

Sebitchin, that is! Happy birthday to one of the coolest metalhead mothertruckers to walk the planet, Sebastian Bach! *insert moshing* Baz’s most recent upcoming project is working with some prog-metal guy who works with different famous vocalists and puts out cds under the name “Frameshift.” His new cd with Sebastian is called An Absence of […]

The Man Who Fell to Earth

Tuesday, April 5th, 2005

From heaven? From a star? From some planet where life forms have evolved to meet their fullest possible potentials? I don’t know, but Gregory Peck was too perfect to be from this planet. Today is Greg’s birthday. It’s also been around two years since he died, and went back to whatever better place he came […]

Birth Break

Monday, April 4th, 2005

Guess what?! It’s nobody’s birthday today!!! (Nobody I care about, anyway.) Gives me a chance to chat about my weekend. It was pretty weird. I’m trying to get over my not-quite-cold, and it’s like 70 outside on Friday, rains all day Saturday, and Sunday we had 4 inches of snow and 35mph winds! A textbook […]

A Birthday They Can’t Refuse

Sunday, April 3rd, 2005

Can we get a moment of silence for the almighty Brando on his birthday? Thanks. I don’t have time to write much of anything, but I found a nice piece from “Time” magazine naming Marlon as one of the 100 most important people of the century. Click here to go read it.
