And about that moon…

Sometimes you just do things for fun.

For the last four years I’ve produced a weekly podcast and occasionally written articles for a web site called Fanboy Planet. There’s no money in this, but usually it gets you into conventions, occasionally it gets you into great parties, and quite often it delivers great swag.  The cost of most swag is that you must review it, and this week my review of the first season of the 70’s science fiction show Space:1999 is up for your reading pleasure.  I’d repeat it here, but I’d much rather send you off to Fanboy Planet where you might read and listen to a great many other fun things.

One nice thing about sincere friendship is that you don’t feel the need to appologize or explain.
 
With that in mind, I give you my friend: Chuck

Idea

Break the mold.  Don’t make sense. Just post. Whatchuthinkngabout? Mayday… mayday…
 
Every now and then you have to go back and enjoy the B sides.  The album cuts that weren’t/won’t ever have been/be popular enough to be played/rediscovered on the air, that you’ll never stick into a playlist, but once upon a time made you smile, or think, or pout, or just listen up. Case in the sharpen that point…
 
Garbage
Shirley Mansion
1995
Not My Idea
 
I bit my tongue and stood in line
With not much to believe in
I bought into what I was sold
And ended up with nothing

This is not my idea of a good time
This is not my idea of a good time
This is not my idea of a good time
This is not my idea

You thought that I would never see
What was meant for you was meant for me
I was distracted at the time
Forget about yours now what about mine

This is not my idea of a good time
This is not my idea of a good time
This is not my idea of a good time
This is not my idea

You thought I was a little girl
You thought I was a little mouse
You thought you’d take me by surprise
Now I’m here burning down your house

This is not my idea of a good time
This is not my idea of a good time
This is not my idea of a good time
This is not my idea.

Insight

Want an insight into me?  Listen to the first four bars or so of Jackson Cannery by Ben Folds Five.  That will ALWAYS get me going.  Damn, that’s good piano.  The remaining bars are pretty cool too…

Neighbors

leave a comment »

The last of the "Five New Homes in Willow Glenn" finally sold so we’ll soon have new neighbors over the back fence.  Lovely home, often thought about buying it myself, would have made the move very easy…
 
Anyway, they’re starting to landscape today – bringing in a back-hoe to dig out a sprinkler system and other things.  Good day to start a week’s vacation if you ask me.
 
Will try blogging from the road via the phone.  If you see blog entries that mention photos that don’t actually show up, that means they’re still messed up in Spaces ability to do that trick.
