You CAN find it other places. They had it on Amazon for about 1/3 the price. I just didn’t want to wait another minute to hear an album that was released 36 years ago. Radio Shack caters to people with no patience who need obscure adapters for their hilariously outdated electronics equipment.
This is an accurate description of myself. I will browse obscure web stores looking for something, then spend more time and money at a place like RadioShack looking for the same thing.
A friend of my mother’s posted this to Facebook.
What is there to say, really? How exactly to comment on…the absolute lunacy of this image? Like, what more dignified way to communicate the unspeakable immensity of God’s salvation than by using a picture of Tweety Bird? It sounds like something a genuinely crazy person would say: imagine a Wesley Willis-type of person approaching you on the street and telling you “I know Tweety Bird’s goin’ to Heaven because he’s literally drenched in the Blood of Jesus Christ.”
Anyway: I sent the picture to my buddy Aaron, who responded with this:
And I think about it every couple of hours, and have to stop myself from laughing out loud like one of those loonies I mentioned earlier.
I am crying from laughter.
I will never be able to hear “Bringing in the Sheaves” without thinking of the Tasmanian Devil again.
Using gamer guy as an insult but not gamer girl shows how sexist you really are.
Yesterday, I ambled up to a colleague’s shiny new iPhone 6. I saw that it was charging, and I said “Hey Siri, from now on call me Penis-Face”. Guess what? Siri duly changed his nickname in his contacts and said “Ok, from now on, I’ll call you Penis-Face.” I exploited a ‘feature’ of iOS 8 — when an iPhone is connected to power, it constantly listens for the term ‘Hey Siri”, followed by a command. Then it executes that command.
There is a group of men who insist on drawing a line between “girl gamers” and just plain old gamers. The implication being that women (“girls”) are showing up in male territory and deserve separate designator simply for enjoying video games is bullshit. I choose to identify these as “guy gamers” because they, in my opinion, need to be separated from the neutral term of “gamer.”
Men who want to make gaming a boys club by excluding women and becoming upset about things like feminist critique or female-driven games are guy gamers.
Guys who take offense to the term “guy gamer” are exactly the people I want to take offense at the term.
Behold the Self-Contained Hootenanny, an autonomous mechanical band that plays 17 instruments, stores 13,000 songs from 10 music categories, and costs just under $55,000. It’s a steal of steel and stuff in Hammacher Schlemmer’s window.
Someday, I will have this, and it will annoy the living hell out of everyone, me included, but I will be able to say to people: “Want to come to the hootenanny?”
"It is a really important find; it enables us to get away from this Euro-centric view of a creative explosion that was special to Europe and did not develop in other parts of the world until much later," he said.
The discovery of 40,000-year-old cave paintings at opposite ends of the globe suggests that the ability to create representational art had its origins further back in time in Africa, before modern humans spread across the rest of the world.
BBC News - Cave paintings change ideas about the origin of art
Scientists are going back to re-evaluate the age of art found in caves across the world, which was previously assumed to be younger than the cave art in Europe. All of this further making the idea that Europe was culturally unique that much less believable.
Two weeks after my chisel run-in (ha!), I’m comforted by the wisdom of Capt. Lance Murdock: Bones heal, chicks dig scars, and the United States of America has the best doctor to daredevil ratio in the world.

NOBODY CARES JUST SHUSH
we know who was born in 2000
People born in the 80s have lived in 4 decades, 2 centuries and 2 millenniums.
And know how to spell “Millennium.”
And know how to spell “Millennium” because of how important the Backstreet Boys’ album was to us in high school.
People born between 1995 and 1999 have yet to master the Latinate “a” suffix for making plurals, apparently.
Is this a commentary on the way I dress?

break a leg!
Kneepads! Dammit. I forgot kneepads.
Portrait of the artist looking ridiculous (but safe!) in a hard hat, high-visibility vest, gloves, and safety glasses over his actual glasses.
