Will Blog For Food

Now why didn’t I think of quitting my job to blog fulltime like the guy in this story in Wired? Oh yeah, it’s because I make no money doing this…

When I Said Music Was My Drug Of Choice, I Wasn’t Kidding
Thanks to Sirius Satellite Radio I have once again started buying music. It’s a habit I kicked because of the lack of quality albums (cds, whatever) released in the mid-to-late nineties. But now I’m back, scouring used CD stores and the internet, seeking that “certain” release by a band you probably have never hear of before. My return to John Cusack’s character in High Fidelity is underway. This can’t be good.

Friday’s purchase consisted of

  • Various Artists – “Wig In A Box”
  • Primal Scream – “Screamadelica”
  • Ween – “Quebec”

You Say “Get Rid Of Hooters”, I Say “Get Rid Of Dick’s”
Dick’s Sporting Goods that is. On a recent trip to my favorite Target (it’s got a Taco Bell / Pizza Hut in it) I noticed that Galyan’s is no more, and in it’s place is a Dick’s. I did actually see the workers erecting the Dick’s sign, but had no decent camera available to take a picture of the big Dick’s erection.

Ah Fuck, Goddamn Programmers Can Be Such Assholes!!
I can say this because I used to code for a living. Someone has figured out how to thwart Firefox‘s ability to stop pop-up ads from appearing. Pop-up ads are the most annoying thing on the internet, they seem to propagate like rabbits, and have never been for a product that I would be even remotely interested in learning more about. I hope that there is a special place in Hell for the person(s) who figured this out.

And Sometimes Being A Nerd Can Be Very Frustrating
On one of last week’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart they did a story about Paris Hilton’s Blackberry getting hacked. Argh! She has a Sidekick II assclowns! Fuckin’ A, she is in the goddamn Sidekick II commercial as well! I know, I need to go into a corner and roll a twenty-sided die until I calm down a bit, but it’s all about the details. I expect more from you Daily Show, get with the program.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – whooped
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing The Arcade Fire – “Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)”
Current Read – will decide tonight

Monday Morning Weigh-In
Starting weight – (approx since I didn’t have a scale) 198 lbs
Target weight – 178 lbs
Current weight – 196 lbs (oops, maybe I shouldn’t have had so much to drink)

  1. Maybe you should stick with Shatner. Or, maybe, we should just Ween you from your taste in music 🙂

    I’ve been thinking of starting a collection of big Dick erection pictures…

    Makes me laugh when you cuss…difficult to picture you that angry.

    So you like D&D?

    Finally going to read? WOOHOO!

  2. Paulie says:

    My music taste fine, thank you very much. 🙂

    I’m not sure why I get all wound up, but sometimes I do. I figure it’s ok for me to curse (that’s northern for cuss) since it’s my blog and all.

    D&D? Not bloodly likely! I used it since it is a well know prop for Nerdom.

    Yeah, I’ll return to reading, I could use the extra sleep. LOL!

  3. I’ve never eaten my music.

    You live in the south; therefore, you cuss. Damn Yankee bastard!

    Your symmetry of shoe laces was a dead giveaway.

    Pop-up Kama Sumtra. That’s all I’m screamin’!


  4. Paulie says:

    What? You’ve never eaten music? Albums taste much better than cds.

    Look, my people kicked the South’s ass once, don’t makes us do it again! 😛

    I don’t think that most nerds can tie shoelaces. I’ve got skills.

  5. I’d prefer to taste the musician thank you very much!

    Them’s fightin’ words ya damn yankee! Iffin’ ya don’t like it here in the south then git yor varmint ass back above the Mason Dixon line!!! Cuz frankly my dear, “I don’t give a damn!”

    Besides, southern belles are prettier. So there 😛

    Well…we know you have one. That’s a start. 😉

    Noticed the omission of book recommendation.

  6. Paulie says:

    I bet you would (re: musicians)

    I might could leave, but I’m fixin’ to stay, at least until I can carpetbag a Southern Belle.

    Giving me the popup Kama Sutra is like giving a vegetarian a steak, neither of us would be able to use them. 🙂

  7. You know the secret to good carpet longevity relies solely on good padding. 😉

    Just because you are on a diet doesn’t mean you can’t look at the menu…

  8. Paulie says:

    but I am under more of an involuntary fasting than I am dieting. Sometimes looking at food when you can’t have any makes you want it even more.

  9. Just makes you appreciate it all the more when the fasting comes to an end…

  10. You tend to go quiet when my optimism gets to you. Surely there is something you want to say.

  11. shoobie says:

    why dont you two get a room. or a family share plan from verizon wireless.

    paulie, what is voyeurville? how can i get on the guest list.

    i hate to admit but i did once own a 20-sided die.

  12. Paulie says:

    Shoobie, Voyeurville is nothing more than links to other blogs I enjoy reading. I added Welcome to Vicklanta to it last week.

    AG and I can’t get a room because I swear she is the twin sister I never knew I had. That sort of “activity” maybe fine in Alabama, or even OTP, but ITP? I think not! 🙂

    AG, who says that my fasting is coming to an end? I’d like to think that it is, but optimism is hard to muster on a gloomy Monday.

  13. Shoobie – Paulie is the Bert to my Ernie; the Snuffy to my Big Bird; the symmetrically tied tennies to my Mr. Rogers; the Bob Ross to my happy trees; the Yankee to my Southern Belle; the ITP to my OTP; the unshaven to my shaven; the 007 to my P. Galore; and the future buddy to my wingman…just to name a few.

    Bro – I never said your fasting was coming to an end (though I hope it does)…I just said it’s worth the wait. (as my weekend will attest too 🙂 And brother dear, it’s only as gloomy as you allow it to be.

    (if this has posted a thousand times, I apologize…damn blogging gremlins)
