Laserdisc v. DVD

One thing you can do when you have a DVD and a laserdisc of the same movie is to play them simultaneously. This is good clean fun. It also gives a chance to compare an original version of the Star Trek episode, City on the Edge of Forever (DVD) and the sabotaged version (laserdisc). The sabotage was the replacement of source music to comply with some witless copyright issue. I have no other duplicates to compare.

Lies, damn lies and humorous captions

Received a humorous email:

What happens when you have

1) nothing to do
2) a sharp knife
3) a large lime
4) a patient cat
5) too much tequila
6) and it's football season?
ANSWER:


To which I replied, "Surely that is a pummelo?"
"It's definitely not a lime," she said.
"There are other faulty assumptions. It may be that there is in fact no patient cat but that there is a sufficiency of tequila to simulate a patient cat."
"I think the tequila is a total fabrication, esp. considering THAT'S NOT A LIME."

Blurb Madness

"... after taking some hallucinogens ..."
"... they meet up with cannibals, volcanoes and other perils"
"... pursuit of an attractive German war widow ..."
"... his claim that living dinosaur exist in Brazil."
"... despite the advice of missionaries and others..."
"... subsequent loss of children ..."

Silly Impulse Purchase

I was in a chain drug store, and there was a display of off-brand, low-quality DVDs, so of course, I bought several. This is the cream of the crop, in descending order of crap/camp:
Casablanca Express (1988)
Slipstream (1989)
Escape from Sobibor (1987)
Gothic (1986)
Road to Bali (1952)
The Big Lift (1950)
The Lost World (1925)
Zulu (1964)
Penny Serenade (1941)
Of Human Bondage (1934)

Starbucks Is Scary Efficient

I have a couple of Starbuck's coffee cards. I registered them on ther website. All fine and dandy. But their website even has a record of the particular design of the card! That is creepy! I understand that it's not hard for them to do, but I had the card in my hand and on screen ... at the same time! At the same time!

"... even bigger than the Barbie movies ..."

This article at DVD Exclusice Awards was mentioned on Mask of Destiny. It hadn't occurred to me before but Bionicle are the natural enemy of GI Joe, a toy I could never get excited about. The closest I ever came to actually liking GI Joe was being able to not hate Small Soldiers completely. And also enjoying the MadTV short where Joe dates Barbie. Compare and contrast Major Matt Mason, a toy I adored and would collect in a nostalgic way now if I collected things for nostalgia's sake. It would be helpful to have a moon crater full of ten dollar bills to finance that nostalgia.

Webcam Is Down Today

I blame the excessive heat caused by global warming resulting from rampant, uncontrolled commercial interests usurping appropriate government oversight contrary to the will of the people and sense. That's why the webcam is down. Write your congressman.

This is not my wonderful life — I don't have that kind of energy

An excerpt from the day of a friend of mine. Names, places changed to protect, extort the innocent, guilty.

I'm meeting Armando downtown for shopping, then I'm going to go to Sprachett's — 124 Elm St. — for happy hour and to review it, then at 6:30 I'm off to pick up Frank's wife, Marilyn, to go to Norwegietown and have a cocktail at Rochambeau's, a new restaurant I have to write up for Monday, before going to bookgroup at Clarise's. Oh, and I have to meet up with a woman named Betty Merry who I met last night at dinner...to treat myself for my last ever Murty's quiz, I went to Ponio's with a $20 gift card Frida gave me and managed to leave my bookgroup book behind —unfinished, of course — but luckily Betty, who was sitting opposite me in the bar and is also a writer who was there to use her $20 gift card, and I exchanged email addresses, so she retrieved it for me and now I'm hoping she'll email me back today and tell me where to meet up with her to reclaim it.

Is This a Bad Thing?

The scenario: Dry summer. Dry yard. Extra-dry patch. Patch is strictly rectangular. Patch corresponds exactly to a slab of concrete 18" under the grass! What is it?!

Fort Worden Driftwood Construct

While Whitney and Stuart started the bonfire, I made this perfectly sound arch. It's about four feet tall and withstood me jumping up and down on it. It survived at least one tide intact.
