Just a story from /dev/random

the-zaWhen I was a kid, we had a wonderful, wonderful pizza place about 9 miles away from home. It was in the little town of Port Jervis, NY. No tables; strictly order in and carry out. This pizza was, and I am so, so serious here, just the best. Perfect every time.

So this one time, my mother and I were out in the car waiting for our order, across the street a little bit diagonal to the pizza place, right next to the Texas Hot Dog emporium. A roller grill, the usual range of hot dog goodness, but after all… hot dogs. We were not there for hot dogs. It was summer, and our windows were down.

Looking for some good TV?

Broadcast television is, in my opinion, kind of like the badlands of North Dakota. Occasionally pretty to look at, absolutely treacherous to wander around in, and the source of nothing of concrete value whatsoever.

Having said that, I have found the following efforts, uniformly produced by non-broadcast concerns, to be well worth the watching. In no particular order:

  • The Sopranos
  • Firefly (sadly, an incomplete series)
  • Weeds
  • Dexter
  • The Daily Show
  • Six Feet Under
  • Enterprise

That’s pretty much it. Just thought I’d drop this as heads-up for anyone who wasn’t aware of one or more of those shows; I’ve really enjoyed them, and so has Deb.

Introducing Undercruiser and Fish

I’ve decided to publish a comic strip. For the time being, I’ll just be uploading it to my flickr account.

Presuming my creativity bump doesn’t deliquisce into a mound of quivering dysfunction, the plan is to build a web site around it and give it a home of its own. In the mean time, please feel free to visit my flickr account and check it out. Comments welcome!

Uh… no thanks

So, I get a lot of spam. I tend to scan the subjects, just in case the spam filter has been overzealous. Don’t want to miss anything from a long-lost friend, etc.

Now, you know these spammers want you to try something. They want you to check out Viagra, Vicodin, all kinds of things. I’m used to that; I even understand, in a resentful, get-out-of-my-face kind of way. I’m fairly open-minded, too, so the sexually oriented ones don’t bother me any more than the exhortations to buy herbal tea. So I skim the subjects several times a day, no particular reaction.

But today… today, there’s one entitled: “Free colon cleanse samples”

No. Just, no. I definitely don’t want any of those. The mind boggles.
