top five places I’d rather be right now

3 November, 2010

(in many ways) 1. Living in a country where the following things were not a factor – a. Seemingly the majority of people having not even the most basic understanding of how government and economic systems work. b.  Extreme short-term memory problems. I had to hear people on the radio yesterday talking about things were […]

five for tonight

13 July, 2010

Random things on my mind: 1.  I bow down at the geek altar of io9 for reinventing the opening credits to Firefly as an 80’s sci-fi action-drama. 2. And THEN… they followed it up with Simon Tam, MD: There are just no words for being overwhelmed with this much awesome.  Well played, io9, well played. […]

a silly list: If gossip magazines featured people I actually find interesting

If gossip magazines featured people I actually find interesting, there would be obnoxious abbreviated celebrity nicknames like…

Bob Dylan sings Christmas in MY heart!

10 November, 2009

Call me crazy, but I think Bob Dylan’s Christmas album is totally wonderful. I feel like everyone is missing the point and that it’s supposed to be campy and a bit ridiculous.  I mean, look at the picture he chose for the album cover!  I feel like he knows how he sounds on these songs […]

I was fairly boring for Halloween.  I had to work.  But that’s ok, my good buddy Joe made up for everyone else’s boring Halloween by doing this: (Two angles so you can see all the fab moves) Amazing, right?   You’re welcome.   Extra points because his “cover” costume that he took off to morph into “Bearonce” […]

Problem: “Who does Matt Berninger of the National remind me of?”

How about in this turbine?

Let’s Discuss: Minding One’s Own Business

27 April, 2009

Ahem.  ((pulls over soapbox)) I know it’s none of my business, but… 1.  No, you don’t.  You are being intrusive and you are aware of it, you just think it’s ok as long as you preface it with the intentional mistruth “I know it’s none of my business, but…” 2.  You are relying on that […]

ThinkGeek for the April Fools’ Win!

2 April, 2009

Today ThinkGeek posted a newsletter with links to a whole amazing bevy of fake products (and dear god, I hope the squeez bacon is actually fake and doesn’t exist in some form somewhere).  Check out this screencap of my favorite three: Not since Google gave us the ridiculous brilliance of Gmail Paper (a service in […]

Homemade Memeness.

22 February, 2009

I rarely take part in memes.  I particularly don’t love the ones that involve lots of survey questions.  However, I signed up for this one (on the receiving end) and therefore, must now pay it forward.  That’s how it works. Here’s the deal: I am going to make some kind of gift.  The first five […]

Stop-Motion Love.

18 February, 2009

Darcy posted this video on facebook the other day.  I discovered (and fell in love with ) the song last summer, but had never seen the video.  Turns out it is really, really beautiful.

I don’t know.  I was just needing to hear this today.  This baseline rocked my universe in 1993…

Valentines for Everyone

14 February, 2009

A Valentine’s Day List of all kinds of love you can send+ share: 1.  Obama Love Some Ecards has tons of snarky goodies, but these Obama-inspired V’s were my favorite: And if you sign up for the some ecards app on facebook, you can send them to about 100 million people simultaneously! 2.  I’ve mentioned […]

It’s an Emergency

29 January, 2009

Having a crabby mccrabbypants day.  I think it’s time to bring out the “big guns” of cheering me up.  Here is one.  This might work.

And the poor choice of words award goes to…

Guessing she was referring to a fist bump … like so: h/t to BoingBoing for this absolute gem

The Inauguration in LEGO!

16 January, 2009

Love this! The LA Times Travel Blog has a story about the mini-inaugural scene at the Legoland themepark. A 4-inch-tall Barack Obama rendered in Lego bricks will be sworn in as plastic president before more than 1,000 miniature-molded dignitaries at Legoland California’s inaugural pre-enactment. Go to the blog for more pictures and details. EDIT:  Just […]

Literal Chart Humor

18 December, 2008

I give you… the always brilliant xkcd on flow charts: and something random (I really have no idea where it came from, someone emailed it to me) on pie charts:
