Monkeys. Also spheres.

A friend of mine recommended a site to me, called Pointless Waste of Time or PWOT for short, and while much of the material on this website is not the kind of thing I can mention here without getting yelled at by my mom, this is. I've noticed very similar things but this guy puts it more clearly than I ever could. Read it.

Not that I have any readers who I don't know in real life, but...

...I really, really want some flute sheet music of Red XIII's theme/ Cosmo Canyon song from Final Fantasy VII. Anyone know where I can get some?


Don't ask.

Books are good for you!

Well, maybe not. But I just read two really great (not to mention really different) books. One of them was Beatnik Rutabagas from Beyond the Stars, by Quentin Dodd--an exceedingly odd book, as the title says, containing such diverse elements as:
the aforementioned beatnik rutabagas,
a scholarly giant robot,
bookcase creatures,
a gang of aliens who all look like your uncle,
a supervillain who would be Doctor X, except that he hasn't quite finished his thesis yet, so he's doctoral Candidate X,
and Space Mice from Galaxy Four. Read it.

The other one is very much more serious, called I Am The Messenger by Marcus Zusak. The story involves a young Australian cabdriver who accidentally foils a robbery, then finds himself getting mysterious aces in the mail. It's not a thriller like you might think--it verges on realistic fiction (ugh) except not. It' s a book with a message, and with impact. Definitely a good thing.
There needs to be a game called Grand Theft Hyrule. you can guess what it would be like.

In My Pants

The other night on the Discworld MUD I played a game which is called (well, by me anyway) Movie pants, or the In My Pants game. An order of people is chosen, and as you go down the list, the player whose turn it is has to think of a movie title which would be funny said in front of the phrase "in my pants." As in "It's a Wonderful my pants." Or "It Happened One Night in my pants." If you don't mind the slight inappropriateness, it becomes quite funny (if rather sophomoric.)

Ba(n)d names

I now present you with an incomplete list of band name possibilites me and my friends puzzled over before finally settling on "The Exceptions:"

Felonious Monkey
Spastic Desperado
Samurai Nemesis
Condensed Baby
Jayne Mansfield's Head
Grandma Wants Grape Juice
Squirrels Just Wanna Have Fun
Chicken Gun
Formerly of the FBI
The Importance of Fettucini as an Instrument of Social Change
Diseased Knee Fluid
Secular Soup and the Butt-Ugly Grandma
Alterations in Fluid Volume
Stalinist Oranges
Apathetic Anarchy
Anarchic Apathy
Invasion of the Bygons
Cobalt Jones and the Strawberry Apprehensions

Yes, it's another quiz.
