It’s the return of the giant link-list email newsletter thing, now consolidated into a blog post for
yourmy convenience. Would anyone be interested in an occasional mix-CD?
Bacon. A food so delicious that the bible forbids it. Sin with me: bacon cupcakes, Mike Nelson of Mystery Science Theater 3000 commits suicide by bacon, bacon explosion, get that bacon out of your teeth with bacon floss, chocolate bacon and the coup de bacon, candied bacon ice cream
File under “and people say I’m hard to shop for”: happy vagina t-shirts, aquarium toilet, check out the speakers on her, vagina perfume
File under “like goldy, but with iron”: Catholic church needs to read the bible more, apparently

Hey, remember Silence of the Lambs? Great Movie, huh? Remember when Clarice tries to bribe Hannibal Lecter by promising him a reassignment to Plum Island, home to Animal Disease Studies? Hey, guess what’s in the news!? http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080411/ap_on_go_ot/animal_disease_1
I have been listening to JWZ’s mixtapes pretty exclusively for the last week or so. They are made of 100% pure awesome. http://www.dnalounge.com/webcast/mixtapes/ They are in fact, how I found that “let’s dance to joy division” song. In the admittedly unlikely case that you were wondering who JWZ is, if you’re using Mozilla/Firefox, he’s responsible for that. http://www.jwz.org/
I may have, once or twice, mentioned how awesome I think Phillip K. Dick’s short stories are. Have I mentioned that he was fucking crazy? http://www.philipkdickfans.com/weirdo.htm

Common Ties, a post-postsecret site. or something. instead of postcards, it’s stories and pictures tied together. mostly sad, so far.
So the email thing I send out got two bounce-backs from AOL users (you know who you are). So I have decided to skip the emails and just put this shit up on a blog. Enjoy — or don’t, whatever. If you would like to see the other “mails” that I sent out (which they no longer are, I guess) and don’t want to go through your email, click on the “email newsletter thing” tag on the right hand side and that’ll take you to the other posts that I have labeled as such.
If you would still rather be emailed,
let me know and I’ll set something automagic up for you or something enter your email address in the lower-right hand box for that sorta thing. It’s run by feedburner and I do not keep (or know) your email address, so I won’t be able to use it for anything.

porn on blu-ray signals the coffin nails for HD-DVD: http://www.t3.com/news/blu-ray-porn?=35064 — this is actually more prevalent than most people realize; the porn industry informally choosing VHS over BETAMAX is what signaled the death-knell for Beta, really. And it was the invention of online porn that led to the “common man” deeper into the inter
webaolnetnet. Porn and tech advances go hand in hand, no matter how old the tech is.

You may have seen it already, but god, it just hurts to watch someone be this stupid in public: “Well I believe that US Americans can’t, um, do that, find America on a map, because, I believe, some people don’t have maps, and, our education, like South Africa – and countries in Asia – we should help them. South Africa and those Asian countries, we should help educate them.” — Miss Teen USA 2007, South Carolina http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQdhMSEqhfg
