Good 12 Monkeys reference. I've increasingly come to see David Morse's character as the 'good guy' as humankind ravages the Earth. Haven't seen any of the TV series.

Your, '...trail of first-time lesbians...' should be enshrined in the Pantheon of Perfect Punch-Lines! 

—Oh, wait—it already is!

Ha! I had the same idea for Gandhi a couple days ago and then completely forgot. Mickey Mantle is great!

Quite right about the limited options for the celebricon game. To be sporting I held off for a day, but now I've gone ahead and posted more. It would still be fun to see your alternates if you had the same ones in mind.

Gracias, Ian--You've put up some great pics lately!

Thanks buddy, I appreciate it!

Yeah, virtual reality so far hasn't really been all it was cracked up to be. And I've been wanting to get ahold of that orgasm loop from Brainstorm for years.

Yes, that gif is truly amazing. I've long been a 3D enthusiast and have over a thousand 'stereo pair' photos from a Stereo Realist camera my dad bought (used) in the early '50s. I've scanned some of them and toyed around with creating 3D animated gifs from them using the same movement principal and have just posted a bunch to my photos album. Of course, the 3D effect is best when they are viewed in their original dedicated viewer, but this is a sort of satisfactory, if inferior, work around. Another alternative is the 'cross-eyed' method of viewing the two images side by side. I may post a few of those as well for interest's sake.

Gracias, Ian--your caption photos speak to tongues and in psychedelic colors!

Yeah!  "Space Invaders" banner ... I used to play that on my uncle's old Vic20...

(grins).  thanks.  it's good to hear from you.  (swipes pass - beep).  I'm finally coming out the "other side" of perhaps a couple of the most miserable/difficult years ever... auto accident really messed me up (a year ago december).  but you know me... I always get up again.  hoping to write something new soon... ;)  Diggin' your page look.  Nice.

hugs.  be well.  (always love the comedy whirled music stations too).

Hey, thanks Ian—appreciate it along with your always erudite references!  In a rare (for me) 'Reeces moment', two icons collided in my brain.  I'd originally had several of them holding bottles of Jim Beam, but finally realized it was beyond uber-bad,  it was meta-lame!

i'm in a better place now - i had a crazy year plus... never write with both the law and art in your head - or people might misinterpret your words.  That's really never happened to me before, so it was a good lesson. 

I'm able to type again, so yeah!

I'm thinking of trying something sardonically witty... writing I mean... but I'm not certain. 

Anyhow - how's you're world?

'Areola Borealis', HaHa! 

And thanks for the 'He hates those cans!' link—I'd not seen The Jerk since it came out.  Classic scene, vintage Steve!

Hey, thanks for all your comments on the pics, Ian—much appreciated.  I've had that rare confluence: a few days off and almost no responsibilities, and just went sort of wild.  It's been therapeutic and much cheaper than heroin or the heroin of physicians, psychiatrists!

And hyper-colossal mega-congrats on the 2 million mark!

thank you its such a ridiculous picture it need a ridiculous cap

Thank you kindly sir

I may have to hook up with FroDoh and get his singer for that song.... seems the FCC has banned my singing voice as its been known to cause mass panic, hysteria and changes in whale migration patterns.

Thanks, Ian!  I feel I'm beating the odds if 1 in 4 don't suck!

How to Drive Two Cars at the Same Time

I was watching In the Heat of the Night(1967) and heard Virgil say that Sam couldn't have driven two cars at the same time.

As Rod Steiger pondered this rarely-contested fact for a moment it dawned on me.   It is quite easy to drive two cars at the same time as long as you have about 30 feet of PVC pipe, 100 ft of 8 gauge steel wound wire and one roll of Gorilla Tape.  For ease of control the wires on the driver's end would be attached to a couple of hard-rubber handles controlling steering, gas & brakes:

WARNING:  Do not attempt this on the open road.  However, if you happen to live in the middle of Australia go ahead and have fun.  And, just like with remote control helicopters it's best to start out with inexpensive vehicles until you dial in the controls.

Lindsay Lohan Hires Herbie

In the wake of today's collision, sources close to sources close to sources close to the Lohan camp revealed that her handlers have contacted the Special Effects Department at Disney in an effort to secure several of the 'Herbie' Volkswagens that were featured in  Herbie Fully Loaded (2005).


One of the heavily-reinforced cars is equipped with ground-breaking accident avoidance technology that was first used on the Mars Rover ten years ago.  Both cars will also feature Google's new Blind Driving Computer.  "All the cars have a limiter at 210 mph," Herbie's handlers said, "otherwise they could lose control.  But they're death-proof up to 400 mph.  So we're confident she'll be alright."  Google could not be reached for comment.

We Might Be Stuffing

   Considering the hundreds of eyewitness accounts in South America of a giant flightless bird and the fact that much of that country has yet to be explored with modern surveillance equipment it is practical to assume that there are still birds out there that could bite our head off.  When we sit down and eat our bird this coming Thursday it's important to realize just why it tastes so good.  When the hunted finally get to eat the hunter there is a sublime molecular response, a sense of total gratification.   Thousands of generations were afraid to go outside without their dogs nearby.  Some even had panthers and tigers to protect them from becoming Diatryma feed, though that elitist method would backfire from time to time for obvious reasons.  

   Today when we give our cats and dogs the giblets and the dark meat we're actually thanking them for thousands of years of protection.  We pay them tributes just like in the Godfather.  So Thanksgiving is a day of thanks on many levels, besides the obvious ones, which include being thankful for Law & Order on TNT and the Snuggie®.

Payback is a…
