how do you crackers feel about placing
a little collumn of those google ads down
on the bottom right there? i don't know if
they actually generate any pocket change
but it might draw some more traffic. I for one
enjoy the (two) comments from strangers.

You guys see that FX network original film "Oil Storm" a few months back? The premise of the movie was that a massive hurricane would hit the Louisiana coastline in September of 2005, knocking a massive oil processing facility there offline for several months. In the film this resulted in catastrophic destablization of the U.S. oil supply.

Here is a fun time waster.


It's like metasynth on the web. You can't use yr own pics unless you host the applet on yr own webpage, but it's more fun to draw them anyway. Now to figure out how to route my I/O's to get these sounds into Cubase. Enjoy.

Ok, I'm here now. Soon as I come across something worth posting, I'll do so.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this picture as much as I do.
I was going through my bookmarks and came
across this. I don't remember how I came
across it but thought you all might enjoy it.

You would think that by now I would know better
than to stop by the Whisky Bar in between classes.

Please read the Letter to Kansas School Board. I propose a mass mailing to all school boards. The other day i found a copy of Of Pandas and People at the book store. It actually said the planets revolving around the sun due to gravity was just a theory and was not a reason for students to cease believing that they were pushed around by angels.
You can get one here. it's a nice little packet. I also came accross this picture while looking for it from this page here.

Where can I get one of these?
And the Trumpets blared!

There are no more Jews in Gaza!

Also, our esteemed Pat Robertson has requested the assassination of Venezulan Pres. Chavez. Please note: "...it's a whole lot cheaper than going to war...I don't think any oil shipments will stop".

Thanks out there in the treacherous waters of cyberspace to
our South American analyst Mr. Moonfire.

This Spartan Life
Red v. Blue
I've found a DVD comp of RvB at hastings but have yet to rent it.
It looks like many of the episodes are on the site.
The Spartan life interview kicks ass as does the Gold Elite Dancers following it.

The most startling thing I've learned in this summer is that numbers such as .9999....(where the nine's go on forever) and 1 are equal. (Perhaps this isn't some startling and bizarre fact that most people don't know. Maybe I just slept that day in elementary school, but humor me here.)


We know for any two values of x and y such that x/3 = y/3 that it must be that x=y.

Suppose x = .9999.... and y = 1.

Of course, .9999...../3 = .3333.....

And of course, 1/3 = .3333.....

So obviously, .9999/3 = 1/3 and, thus, .9999.... and 1 are equal.

Again, maybe I missed this in elementary school, but that seems fucked to me.

Some people have worse problems than others.
On a side note, I ran into Bones and Shane (of early Perkins fame) last night at Hastings. Apparently they moved here about the time we did to escape all the crackheads in Jonestown.

Well, my first day of law classes went alright. Unfortunately after hearing how many people in the class are born again christians (what was wrong the first time they were born?) I feel like this ordeal is going to be more of a defensive action against the people I'm forced to share this planet with and less like something I'm going to be doing for pleasure. I hope this changes and I suspect that it will. In the meantime I'm going to finish that damn Hobbes book and try not to remember just how damn fucked up the average american really is. I think I might get a tattoo and listen to a lot of Skynyrd as well. They seem to be helping a great deal and thinking about ink has got my drawing juices flowing a little again.

Here is a 50,000 ft long Hermit Crab from outer space

This is the view off of the back porch of where we stayed.

This is the gulf side of the island. Out on the horizon were some exxon-mobile rigs, leading to lots of thoughts of gene and the song 'Friggin on the Riggin'.

This is the teeth of the dead baby shark I found our first morning there. Unfortunately it is over-exposed.

Sometimes searching through the various Blogger profiles is amusing:

Soulrestorer - Q: What the fuck is wrong with this lady? A: Jeebus.

~Michelee - Check the hair...and did I mention the Lord?

NAT - The only book listed in NAT's favorites is a book of poetry by Tupac. (Well, I suppose that's better than Jewel's poetry...)

Dr. Lipshitz Gerfunkel - The Doctor lists as his interests flowers, puppies, long walks on the beach, feces and sleep. He also says, "I am a worthless fucking junkie who wants to be a good man." Alas, he no longer seems to have a blog.

Mattt Jordan - Matt begins describing himself thus: "I am 22 years old. I am pissed off." His interests: "Hockey Politics women Sports Blood Gothic Vampires Death Dark Metal Death Metal Fighting BDSM Bondage Sex" Since when do Goths fight? And is "Death Dark Metal" a new breed of Metal or is he just interested in Death, Dark and Metal? (What exactly would it mean to be interested in Dark?)

Mogen - Mogen is a roleplayer. She kills gnolls, I gather.
Remember the recent story of the man that died from being fucked by a horse?

He wasn't alone. The act took place on a farm at which, ahem, people that like to fuck animals regularly gathered.

A video was made.

Do NOT watch this if you ever want to sleep again.

Jesus said, "I come not to bring peace, but a sword." But then he said, "Blessed are the peacemakers."


Jesus said, "If your enemy strikes you, turn the other cheek."

Soft on terrorism!

Jesus said we should sell all our goods and give everything to the poor.


Jesus overturned the tables of the money-changers. He also said, "It is easier for a rich man to pass through the eye of a needle than to enter the kingdom of God."


Jesus consorted with prostitutes and tax-collecters and the homeless. He was born to a mother who was impregnated by a man who was not her husband.

Jesus is opposed to Christian famiy values! What will we tell the children?

Jesus Christ.

Flip-flopper. Soft on terrorism. Socialist. Communist. Against family values.

We just can't trust him. He's wrong for America.

This message was brought to you by the Republican National Committee.

I'm about to go down to the Alabama beachfront for a week so blogging will be light if any at all from me. In a fucked up turn of events, I recieved an email today saying that my forth-coming property law professor, also the dean of the dept. here, died suddenly at a meeting of the American Bar Assoc. in Chicago this week. Also, upon pondering the cover of my copy of Hobbes' Behemoth as a tattoo, I have decided to spend the week finishing Behemoth as opposed to buying Atlas Shrugged and reding it while I'm down there.
I found this nice collections of cartoonists' photo's over at BoingBoing.
From the FAQ on the homepage:

Can I Train My Dog To Put It On Himself?

No, the dog will require human intervention each
time he wishes to put on or take off a condom.

Also, note the product recall.
