This is the only web site you'll ever need - sending people phone messages by Samuel L. Jackson is just incredible:
Speaking of cool links, this video - Wraith Pinned to the Mist (and other games) -
by Of Montreal
made me run immediately to my local indie music store and pick up their latest album. Soooooo good! That has to be the most perfect video I can imagine. You might need IE to view the video, sorry, so worth it though.
I was contacted about these two videos last month, I find both intriguing, I loved the stop-motion dragging in the second piece here:
Four Eyed Monsters
It's been a long time since I've written in this. Business is going ridiculously well - so well, in fact, that this week I'm flying to San Diego on a business trip. And then a business trip to Canada the following week. And then my one-month epic journey to Oregon/California to help my parents retire to Cali (with a trip to Disneyland w/ Alice there at the end!). So things have been good on that front, and that's a good thing I suppose, not being homeless and all.
And that's why this may not be updated for yet another month.
- "The Cotton Gin
" - puppet theatre at its finest, Saturdays this month (I hope to squeeze one show in)
on Saturday at Neumo's! Theramin gypsy drunken love waltz music!
- Robin Hood
in Volunteer Park - I think I'm going to miss this one but I don't wanna miss it
If you need your clothes cleaned I highly recommend Cotton Cleaners on Lake City Way, they do a real good job.
Saturday Alice and I went canoing in Lake Washington cuz we're so extreme. But we really were extreme! The Blue Angels were flying right over us, so low I could see in the cockpit, pretty neat stuff.
As the procurer of all things Piratey and Jokity
I come across some interesting things at times. Yesterday I received this entire pirate story with five chapters from the mysterious 'Otto' in Canada. It's not applicable for PirateJokes.net, but I thought I'd share it here:
Hoist the sails! Aye aye captain! Said the
pirates.Thars another pirate ship coming captain! Call to her. Aye aye captain! Ahoy thar!! Ahoy thar! Ahoy!! said the other ship. Are ye friend or foe? We need some help here. Why? Cau'se when we battled with another ship we got on the rocks and some of our mates are under some huge boulders. Where did you leave them? About 9 10 miles away cau'se we finished this battle about 3 hours ago. I know cau'se we heard the battle sounds only how long will it take to get us up? About 30 minutes. Ok now I want to ask one more question. Do you need help in battling the merchant ship or what ever the ship was? Yes. I do because when we crashed on the rocks the merchant ship got the best of us. So? will you give my men provisions? Ok. We want to join you to. Ok. you can there is plenty of room.How many men have you there? 'bout 30. Well two pirate ships could move in here. Our spare rooms are numbered to be 'bout 90. Wow.
Were coming close to her matey's! Give it all you got! Then we will refuel and battle the merchant ship again. Aye aye captain! Captain John. Come into my office. Yes sir.
Now then tell me can you I mean how many gun do you have on your ship? We have 'bout 8. Ok. But there is one problem with guns. Why? Cau'se we can only fit 'bout 7 on the ship. Well can't we put 1 in the hold? Ofcourse but we shouldn't pile this ship to much. Because of the weight of the ship we couldn't hold out to much so I say through 'bout 4 of your guns overboard and keep the rest of your stuff cau'se you know how much guns weigh. yes I do. Then your right lets go in the hold I have so refreshments for you. Ok.
There is a ship somer's away.
That must be the ship we battled with.
Yes it is. Look at the flag.
We've seen that ship 'round these parts afore.
You have well then tell me how many guns we could fire against her.
'most all of our guns.
Get ready the guns! Aye aye captain! And make sure they fire at the same time hitting her! Yes sir!
When they got close to the ship they fired. All the guns hit her directly.
She turned around. She fired but didn't hit us.
We loaded up and fired again. This time she was sinking 45 of the cannon balls hit her in the bottom.
All 189 cannons were fired again and she sunk out of sight but apeared again to be on the rocks.
Hurray!! hurray!!! she has hit the rocks! Come on mateys lets get her booty . Aye aye Captain.
Ending with a Pirate
Its time to say goodbye to Captain Starr and Captain John but we have a pirate joke wich maybe you will like. Here she goes.
Why didn't you bring a toilet on board?! Cause there isn't any sewer and cause don't we want the ship smelling nice and clean?
Arr! You should have brought a toilet on board now I will have to pooh and pee in the ocean with the other sailors and I don't want to get wet.
