Still more monkeys than people

image

I found this by accident on the google web. The Costa Verde hotel has a "house" that is made out of the fuselage of a 727.

The little boy in me says "golly gee, it's swell!"

It's Snowing in Iceland


image

It's snowing in Stykkisholmur, Iceland right now. It's not snowing in Buffalo, USA.

And I say that the latter is a good thing.

e:peep sighting

This afternoon I had the pleasure of running into (e:mrmike) at our local Wegmans. It was a nice reminder that the online community extends into meat space.

Too Drunk To . . .

Once upon there was a band called the Dead Kennedys. The first single I bought of theirs was "Too Drunk to Fuck." This is an acapella cover of the song by Camille who at one point in her life was in the bossa nova punk cover band Nouvelle Vague. Technically, I think this is an acapella cover of the Nouvelle Vague cover of the Dead Kennedys original.

A Pleasant Surprise

Recently the Lovely Lettuce posted about our neighbors. and not seeing the nicer side of them. Well today, I did.

The previous administrations of our house left us with evergreen shrubs and landscape timber in our front yard. I got rid of the shrubs a couple of weeks ago. And today's project was getting the landscape timber into the backyard so I could decide what to do with them.

The previous admin's used round telephone pole like timbers. As I was struggling with a timber pretty much as tall as me, our neighbor (the male part of the couple Lettuce wrote about) came out and asked me if I needed help. This was a very pleasant surprise.

By that time, I was covered in dirt so I asked him "Are you sure you want to? You'll get dirty" He said that he didn't mind if he did.

So he helped me carry one from the front to the back. And in the middle of carrying the second large timber, my bad shoulder popped. We got it to the backyard. And I told him I would deal with it some other day. I didn't want him to do all my heavy lifting.

I thanked him for helping. He said it was just a small thing. I said to me it was more than just a small thing and that I really appreciated it.

Given everything that has happened, it was a very pleasant surprise that he would take the time and effort to help me.

No Pocky For Kitty

That's what I'm listening to right now. Years and years ago, someone I knew was a big Superchuck (WIKIPEDIA - Superchunk)fan and he recommended that I get this cd. This is the second time I listened to it this year. and I still like it.

Almost 40 years after Stonewall . . .

Today, I heard on the news that Gov. Paterson wants to legalize gay marriage

Almost 40 years after Stonewall, I still amazed that New York State hasn't legalized gay marriage.

Hopefully, Paterson will make it happen.

Industry Giants


image

The ironically titled "Industry Giants" by Superdrag (WIKIPEDIA - Superdrag ) came in the mail today. I recently posted a video from the cd (e:uncutsaniflush,48266)

It just might be the best Superdrag ever. This is the first cd by the original line-up in this century. It is confirmation of how important Brandon Fisher's guitar playing was to the Superdrag Sound.

I was already a fan of this band when I realized that Superdrag was more or less a friend of mine's old band without him in it.
