  1. Back in the 80's our truck played "Send in the Clowns"*. For 25 years I thought this was an anomoly but tonight I googled it... I guess it's a thing, but I only see people talking about it from 2k6 beyond so maybe our dude was some sort of pioneer or just ignorant, or maybe a super creep... who knows? Now days we just have the Methhead Icecream that plays that fucked up 'Turkey in the Straw' with "HELLO!" thrown in every so often. *as far as I know, and I hope my explanation will explain my lack of exploration (I said that because it rhymed-ish. alliterationesque, really it's a lack of interest)... anyway, this song is by Steven Sondheim, who is a guy, and it's some sort of suicide ballad or something that is usually very slow tempo... I once saw Bette Middler start to sing it in a movie I immediately quit watching(I THINK [shaker of salt {memory of a 9yr old}]). So what did your truck play? Y'all had Ice Cream Truck right?
  2. Oh yeah, that was Ted's fault, he's 'new'... "My Bad..."
  3. just realized I pretty much said all that yesterday but at least I didn't repeat myself.
  4. Beans n Rice. If you only learn one thing; make it the several things that equal Beans n Rice.
  5. Nothing punctuates a swift kick in the ass followed by a suitcase out the front door like the cartoon sounds (boooooo-whip, or, SPROING!). I try to tell this to everyone I meet that's prone to domestic violence, nothing downplays the situation better than ironic and quirky sound effects.
  6. I saw the new 300 movie... at this point I'm not only thinking that I'm never gonna give Frank Miller any more of my money, I'm considering cashing in on my old Batman comics. Of course some unknown director will probably do an incredibly awesome series of Arkham Asylum movies and I'll eat my words but... bad fail, or briliant representation of a graphic novel that was bad history to start with. Not for nothin, plus the fact the Greek dudes don't shirts in battle, and girls that grow up as rape slaves end up REALLY digging violent sex as a metaphor covering the meaningless political struggle we're all just forced to put up with... fuckin' Mongols, amiriiite? anyway 2 of 10, do NOT see
  7. Here's a little something that works for me I've found it to be successful to a marked degree it doesn't matter who the bitch is it's just a matter of flippin' switches and I'm givin' it you free... Turn on Looney Tunes cartoons as loud as your TV will go, explain that you couldn't posibly expose her to this insanity... jump up and down, really, jump down!
  8. 300: Rise of mrmmrmmrm Pretty much sucked, bad history, disjointed story telling, really just a moving homage to Frank Miller's static style, the best parts in the movie were action shots slowed to freeze frame with teh Matrix 'rotate' effect... Full on CRAP! A coin toss decided this one so next week it's Mr. Peabody, which everyone seems to enjoy so, it's lookin' up
  9. Well, there ARE dick metal bands, I'm not sure I can successfully deny the existance of an entire music genre with just this little inquiry concerning tape decks ... Further, we should probably just come to terms with what 'dick metal' means. I generally use the term to refer to the 'glam' bands of the late 80's like Poison or Motley Crue... I think the term (with different overtones) could be equally applied to W.A.S.P. or Pantera in the 90's or Messhuga. All dick comparisons are subjective, however, as in music can be easily defined in terms of length and intensity but 'girth' seems fairly subjective... Anyway, this get's me no closer to preserving my collection so the cellulose continues its decay... Tangentally speaking... In my head, I was just lamenting the fact that I brought up the 'duper' and high speed replication in the first place because it really has no place in the archival process (I realized after about 2 days thought). Now I think further about how that's a ridiculous thing, I'm reminded of a news item I read within the last year about some woman who had taped every hour of TV for 20 years (forget how that worked with different channels and sign off but... it's out there). Estimations were that it would take about 35 to archive because everything was going at 1 to 1 speed. So, my question is why isn't there even a Pro level archiving machine that plays and records media (cassette, lp, whatevs) at a highly accelerated pace and then digitally resorts it to be slowed down? This seems like a fairly simple task from the analog side, My inexpertise is on the digital side so, if anyone knows... what am I missing? Why can't we do this simply and cheaply? Esoterically, did we evolve the archival paradigm so quickly that while accomodating the oldest formats (scanning papers and pictures rapidly or 'en masse') we have neglected the technologies of the late 20th century. Like, what can I actually do with my 8 track copy of Prince 'Dirty Mind'?
  10. I used to be all day with Bustelo, still 2 of 3 pots a day, but in the morning... first thing, eso es Cafe La Llave! As far as coffee makers, I had a stash of old school shit that one by one broke down until back in January my Dad hooked me up with this Braun carafe thing that they no longer make... WTF? This is THE BEST coffee maker I've ever fucked with, hands down! The carafe keeps coffee hot for an easy 4 hours, easy to clean, auto shut-off so it doesn't overcook... So, yeah, if anyone spies something like this, send up a flare!

    I would endorse this if it wasn't for absolutely dirt cheap Nashbar training tires and the Microshift brand which seems to have brought reliable indexed shifting to the handlebras at a discount rate. If Prefomance/Nashbar was only retail/resell but rebrand resell... it' like a Pyramid
  12. No butts were hurt during the duration of your postings; You have obviously misinterpreted my trademark outrage. Instructions unclear... raped the canoes.
