Vocally From Another Dimension

A small bit of history.  I used to sing.

You have no doubt heard of the proverbial big fish in a small pond.  We had a pretty decent pond.  I was a keeper if I stretched my tail fins.  A lot.

Though I don't sing much anymore, I do still enjoy music a great deal.

XKCD is one of the coolest uber-geek comic strips going right now.  Check out the 'mouse-over' text for an extra punchline.  Thrice weekly fun and humour.

I tried this a few weeks ago.  Liked it.  Sucked a few hours worth of time from my life.

Worth a few minutes of yours.  Combines the elements of a "match 5" game with strategic elements of defending a castle using towers.  I have played both types of games and usually have more fun with the latter.  This combination was very enjoyable.


You can thank me later.

Everybody Gets A Chance

My disagreements with Mr. Obama's policy are many.  Yet in a single moment in a single interview, he has offered me a modest reason for hope.

"What has always made this country great is the belief that everybody has got a chance," Obama said. "Regardless of race, regardless of creed." 
Indeed.  Disagreements, criticisms, and other acts of profunditerotery* aside, I remain proud of having Mr. Obama as my President.  I was proud of his predecessor as well, so I suppose the preceding won't mean much with some people.

*Nothing wrong with sacrificing a bit of the English language when it fails to provide more suitable fodder.  In this case, I thought of the following as I was typing.

  • profound - (what writer is not seeking a concise phrase that illuminates the human condition?)
  • pundit - (most bloggers carp a lot, too)
  • idiot - (the better bloggers will admit to moments of idiocy before all four limbs are tied behind their backs)
  • erotic - ('cause you always get accused of screwing someone)

 This is hilarious.  I wish the game would really let you behead creepers!

When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, "This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know," the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything - you can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him.
