An Important Matter

The Why Bird from Playbus/Playdays:

Awesome or awful?

Comments please. Tickybox is an acceptable answer.

I should explain how this argument started. I think the new default Ubuntu background is basically the Why Bird (or at least her hot 18 year old daughter).

I don't normally do these, but this one seems quite cool. (via [ profile] nert)

1 - Go to wikipedia.
The first random wikipedia article title that you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to Random quotations:
The last four words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 - Go to flickr and click on "explore the last seven days"
The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use photo shop or similar to mix it all up. Post it.

Assburgers Syndrome

Assburger's syndrome is believed to be the most common personality disorder in the Western world, yet it remains one of the least frequently diagnosed. It is an often-degenerative condition that can manifest itself in many different ways in different patients, but almost all Assburger's sufferers exhibit at least five of the following symptoms:

  • Delusions of superiority.
  • A hyper-inflated sense of their own intelligence, wit, charm or appearance.
  • Ditto for their professional, sporting, musical, rhyming and/or computer prowess.
  • An obsessive need for praise that borders on fellatio
  • A lack of empathy for others bordering on the sociopathic.
  • A constant oral discharge of faecal matter.
  • The arousal in others of violent or homicidal thoughts.

A childhood memory shattered

Lizzie's been watching episodes of St Elsewhere recorded on our Shiny Box of Joy(tm), an early 80's hospital drama which seems fairly tame by modern standards, but was allegedly quite cutting edge in its time.

The problem is with one of the actors in one of the current story arcs. The actor in question plays the part of Dr. Mark Craig and if you look at the imdb page linked above, he's played by William Daniels, who also played the voice of KITT from Knight Rider.

The Problem. )

× I miss somebody right now. × I don't watch much TV these days. I own lots of books.
I wear glasses or contact lenses. I love to play video games. I've tried marijuana.
I've watched porn movies. × I have been the psycho-ex in a past relationship. I believe honesty is usually the best policy.
I curse sometimes. I have changed a lot mentally over the last year. I carry my knife/razor everywhere with me.  (penknife - victorinox cybertool, specifically. Best. Tool. Ever.)
it goes on... )

The Sci-fi channel are running a star trek weekend, but have opted to skip Star Trek 5. Good call, I reckon.
