Time Management

I have lots of ideas. Lots of things I want to do. Lots.

Oh well...

Chinese Jedi

Clearly, my whole purpose in life has now become to post every Star Wars related video on the internets I can find.

I should have half of YouTube embedded here by mid-May.

In the meantime, dig this:

Frozen Peas

The Dude likes to eat frozen peas.

While they are still frozen, mind you.

And the really weird part is that my wife and I are so accustomed to this curious bit of toddler-hood that we will even offer them:

"Would you like some frozen peas with your hot dog?"

Picture this in a fine dining establishment:

"With your chili and and coffee encrusted Filet Mignon would you like the caramelized shallots with red potatoes, the farm fresh carrots in a maple infused Dijon demi-glace, or, a frozen block of peas for you to suck on."

I guess we don't mind because we are just so happy he is eating a vegetable. Frozen or otherwise.

I just can't say this enough

My Son is awesome.

no one undertsands me


i likes me some joss whedon.

Eddie Izzard is funny

I just learned that Eddie Izzard is funny. (Particularly when done in Lego.)

And that I am addicted to posting every Star Wars video I find on YouTube.

Addicted, I am. Oh well.

This has bad language, but it's not, y'know, mean.

Giant Cereal Spoon

It was an extremely nice day today, spring is finally here, so I went out for a little walk around town. Ineeded some sun absorption, needed to bulk up on my Vitamin D.

While out, I saw the first sign of our new regime. A sight that we should all get used to, because the rule of earth by man has come to end.
The Giant Cereal Spoon Overlords are here:

And I for one, welcome they're rule. Although their size may be terrifying, they do have a genial and friendly manner.

And they were kind enough to leave behind some tasty droppings for us all to eat.

More YouTube Geekery: for finding and sharing

You may need your big boy nerd pants on to really enjoy these.

This morning I was listening to Make It So, a very funny english Star Trek podcast. And they made reference to this wonderful bit of nonsense, which I now share with you:

This is pretty funny, but it's got lots, LOTS, of bad words. But you got rapping Wookies, so I think that evens out, right?

And finally, it's always a good idea to mix your geek things. And The Pythons go well with everything.

Tron: Now In Cardboard Form!

Oh those clever, inventive frenchmen:

That is so cool, I'm proud to witness it.

Parts is Parts

The Dude is into body parts these days. In particular he is fascinated by the body parts we normally cover up. Very fond of saying Penis. Also very fond of saying Scrotum.

Apparently we taught him that.

Which is good, we don't want him to be weird about his body, it's not taboo, it's his parts. But it is funny when he is standing in front of the mirror, bopping up and down, holding his lil' thang and singing "penis penis penis penis" and then lifting it up and singing "scrotuuum." I'd have video, but it all just happened so fast.

He kind of swallows his "S's" so it comes out more like "crotum" and penis is sorta like "penith." (BTW: the spell checker is going nutty with the red lines right now. Spell checker is not happy with "penith.")

The Dude will sometimes want to see his penis. Badly. Like having a little fit because he needs to see his penis and scrotum RIGHT NOW badly. This only happens when we're changing or dressing him, so the opportunity is there. It's not as though he throws himself down in the middle of the mall or the grocery store and screams "I NEED TO SEE MY s'CROTUM!!"

Although, if I were in the right frame of mind, that would be kind of awesome.

Of course, The Dude is not only interested in his parts. He is also intrigued by his mother's parts. Especially the parts that are different from his parts. He asks lots of questions. Which leads to exchanges like this:

"Mommy, is that your penis?"

"Well sort of, it's my vagina, it's like a penis, but, ummm, inside out. "

With a look that spoke of knew understanding of the universe and his place in it he said: "Oh...vagina-penis!!"

Close enough.

One morning, he sat on my wife's lap.

"Mommy, I love you." he said.

"Thank You honey."

"And I love your angina too."


Nutella love

I am tempted to got to the kitchen, get a spoon, open the cupboard, and eat Nutella straight from the jar. Maybe throw some graham crackers in.

I love Nutella.

A Million Years Ago...

I lived here:

View Larger Map

Google Maps Street view is awesome.

Car troubles

We are having to buy a new car.

This unpleasant on almost every level and it upsets me and it makes me feel like this:

Funny You Tube Stuff

I find this completely hysterical. Really, I laugh every time. So awesome. Clearly, my emotional age is 12.

This is also funny (funnier really), and very creative:

Learn more about the folks who made it here. Crazy Canadians!

And more Muppet goodness (because you can never have too much Muppet goodness):


Gisele Kerozene

I used to be cooler.

Back in the day, when I lived in Boston and wore black all the time, my friends and I used to frequent the touring animation festivals. This is the dark ancient times before the internet and one of, if not the only, way you saw neat little cutting edge animation films was to see them at these festivals. Spike and Mike's Sick and Twisted Animation Festival was a one opf the most popular ones. Some wildly funny, wildly sick stuff there. They also showcased things like the very early Simpsons cartoons from The Tracey Ullman Show and this was the first place I ever saw Beavis and Butt-head and learned of Mike Judge. There was often some Bill Plympton too.

These frequently played at The Coolidge Corner, a great independent movie theater in Brookline. It was an old movie palace, HUGE main screen, fraying gold leaf fringing around the edges, faded red plush everywhere. Great place.

One of the short films I remembered seeing was Gisele Kerozene. A wild stop motion live action fantasy thing. Funny. And totally cool. This just took my friends and my imagination by storm, we even tried to make our own version. (On Super 8 film. Remember Super 8? No you probably don't. ) It was crap, trust me. Most of what we made was crap.

Anyway, here is Gisele Kerozene. It's still cool. Enjoy:

Oh Dear.

It gets worse. I don't think they should be touching those things. Haven't they ever read this?


Uh-Oh, Cthulhu is here.

April Fool's Day

Happy April Fool's Day. Do you say "Happy April Fool's Day?" I don't know, I don't like it. I don't like surprises. Jokes are okay, I enjoy mirth, but not surprises, stunts, pranks etc.

Don't mess with me. I am anxious and stressed and uptight and overtired. I am a powder keg ready to blow. Do not light my fuse, do not poke, prod or needle. Do not light my fuse.

I think the honest truth is, I like to dish it out but I can't take it.

People had better not be stupid around me today.
