>Kitty Cat

>If you like cute things, I promise you will blow up when you see this. No, you will explode. Especially if you’re Chelsea. Alicia, however, will laugh so uncontrollably, she will lose her ability to stand.

You have been warned.

>!A Bad Idea

In some computer programming and search engines, the ‘!’ symbol is used to denote ‘not.’ This can and should be applied elsewhere. As in writing “I enjoy old Rage Against the Machine but !rap-core.” Or it is especially dorky when used in online profiles to highlight specific disinterests:

Name: Erik Erickson




See? I am especially not a fan of murder.

>Nothing Like a Dame

>Ain’t that ‘a fact. Bonus points if you get the Riefenstahl reference on that page. Triple bonus points if you understand why the French loved the film so much. Less points if you get the Kilroy reference.

>Earth Week

>So I’m walking in front of the student union with my usual routine: staring at the ground, Ears blaring in my…ears. Normally this keeps the paper pushers out of my face. But not last Wednesday. No, some girl felt that there was no excuse for Earth Week ignorance. So in the middle of Trans Am’s ‘Cologne’, I have a pile of various papers thrust in front of my face. So I stop, look up, and faintly hear the girl as she states “Come to our Earth Week rally.” Now added to my confusion is anger. There’s gotta be some statistic about flyers passed out on college campuses that says something to the effect of “85% of them do not even make it into the garbage.” And apparently she was relying on hard irony to get her point across since there were AT LEAST 4 pages of flyers in her hand all apparently promoting this same thing. *Grumble*

“No,” I replied.

>This is Nicolas Cage’s greatest role. Pimping Pachinko machines in Japanese ads.

>Ebaum’s Link Day

>1. Sportka Evil Cat Commercial

Killing cats is horrible…and…hilarious. Good for a guilty laugh.

2. Sound Recorder

Some people are so creative they can only be described as having too much time on their hands. This is one of these people.

3. Another Super Mario music thing

I promise this one is cool. I PROMISE. Well the coin noises are at least.

>Alright, I owe myself an apology. I was pretty hard on me about the whole iPod thing, so…Self, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to be so harsh. Me were right in buying the Zen Xtra. It is pretty kick ass and has some advantages over the iPod Minis (well, the bronze one at least, still don’t know all about the pink one). Me should go and enjoy the Xtra freely without the self-loathing involved in regret.

Me: Me am sorry, me. Hey, Self, what’s on Ears?

Self: Modest Mouse – Black Cadillacs.

Me: Really? That’s cool, me, that’s really cool.

Self: :)

>And One Got Fat

>Besides public domain audio and texts, the Internet Archive hosts free movies as well. I keep getting a kick out of watching one on bicycle safety involving kids with tails and monkey masks who get killed for not being safe. The reward for being safe on a bike? Eating all the other kids’ lunches. ‘Sweet, dude, I am SO TOTALLY gonna be getting fat WHILE YOU DIE SLOWLY UNDER A STEAMROLLER’ seems to be the message. Also check out the Computer Chronicles, a show with its earliest episodes in the middle 80’s about technology. It’s great if you’re into computers and that stuff. If not, fuck you, what are you still reading this for? And oh yeah, there’s a whole BUNCH of old educational films on sex, drugs, and the American way in general. Reefer Madness seems to be a popular download. I could go on and on about all the awesome stuff on this site. Like “About Faces: American Dental State During the Depression.” But I won’t, cuz these are supposed to be short. I promised myself.

In the Ears: nothing, look at the time. Who listens to music at this ungodly hour? The Devil, that’s who.
