Wash behind your ears.

I run across stuff that I think "Hey - I need to get snarky and write a post about this", so I will save a link into a text file with the intention of getting back to digesting and mentally regurgitating my thoughts. Needless to say, that list is getting pretty big, so hows about some backwash on a few, just to empty it a bit:

**Here's a great YouTube video about Sicks Stadium - home to the Seattle Pilots and Rainiers. Music ain't great but the pics are pretty cool.

**I find this article a little sad. Forgotten for 35 years? May I never go through that.

**I like this video. It has nothing to do with the fact she is female or how she is dressed or anything like "Boy, she's hot". In fact, I only saw the video cuz it was linked through another site I visit. I just find her hula hoops skills pretty cool. Now, I can see how someone loves dance and can turn that into a career. Just what kind of career does a hula hooper have? Anyway - check out her mad skillz.

**In a related story to the woman forgotten for 35 years, Scotty not only can't find the power, Capt'in - his remains can't seem to make it to outer space.

**And lastly, in another level of relation to Scotty, did you know the laptops on the International Space Station don't have any anti-virus software? Hey Buck Rogers, ever hear of AVG?

The invisible man

Hey - check out that awesome graphic! Man - Obama is a total jerk. Look how low those tax breaks are for people! He is such a comple....wait a minute. The low is $161,000? What about me? What about 95% of America? What is the differences between the plans across the income board? Let's see the whole table:

Income McCain avg. tax bill Obama avg. tax bill
over $2.9mil -$269,364 +$701,885
$603K-$2.9mil -$45,361 +$115,994
$227K-$603K -$7,871 +$12
$161K-$227K -$4,380 -$2,789
$112K-$161K -$2,614 -$2,204
$66K-$112K -$1,009 -$1,290
$38K-$66K -$319 -$1,042
$19K-$38K -$113 -$892
Under $19K -$19 -$567

Nice distortion of the facts, CNN. Funny - you interview a wealthy person about this table (well, HALF table you displayed) and he thinks the top 5% can handle Obama's plan (the talk starts about 1:20 into the video):

YouTube-sday™: Lunchtime!

Ok - I'm back from vacation. Didn't really do anything amazing or diary-worthy. Just a break from work. But enough - let's rawk!

Me... a name I call myself

I love music. Not just in the car, but when doing chores, on the computer - anywhere. I sit at my desk during lunch and shuffle my mp3s while I eat.

That being said - I have no idea why I have some of the songs I have. Don't recall if I downloaded some as a goof, if I really like the song, if I was drunk.....what. I just know that, on occasion, some pretty weird crap will come in the play list. Examples, you say? Ok - check out this little section that hit my ears today:

"Jingle Balls" by The Singing Dogs
"Don't Let Me Down" by The Godfathers
"Special" by Garbage
"Holly Jolly Christmas" by Burl Ives
"Stars" by Switchfoot
"Only Wanna Be With You" by Hootie & The Blowfish
"Can't Take My Eyes Off You" by The Four Seasons
"Killer Queen" by Queen
"The Night Chicago Died" by Paper Lace
"Home" by Barenaked Ladies
"Sex Bomb (Death Metal version)" by Ten Masked Men
"The Remedy" by Jason Mraz
"Message Of Love" by The Pretenders
"Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer" by Elmo & Patsy
"Something So Strong" by Crowded House
"Run Rudolph Run" by Bryan Adams
"O, For A Thousand Tongues To Sing" by David Crowder Band
"Apple Tree" by Wolfmother
"Generals and Majors" by XTC
"(The Legend Of) Johnny Kool" by Brian Setzer Orchestra
"The Click" by Good Charlotte
"Without Love (There Is Nothing)" by Tom Jones
"Lunch Lady Land" by Adam Sandler

Now, I have no idea why Musicmatch went all Christmassy in that section, but weird are some of those songs? I am either super eclectic, or a total dweeb. If you want a PDF of my library, just ask. You are welcome to anything in it. Then you too can be confused.
