As I announced on Facebook yesterday, I am in possession of wheels once again. I'm pretty happy about it. It's a 1997 Mecury Sable. It's older, but it's in great shape. Even the engine is spanky clean. It runs great, and the AC is icy cold. And it's nice and spacious on the inside, which is good for me, because I tend to get a little car claustrophobic sometimes.

Pictures and other junk under here. )

And finally...I made an ass out of myself for lulz. And Fia helped.

I'm gonna get to all the comments for the 2010 meme when I get home, cause I don't have time to tell all you guys how awesome you are. Awww.

This was on the only message board I still really frequent, Whitechapel. There's a Draw Each Other thread there, and I've gotten a couple of things done with my pictures, but so far, this one is my favorite:

It's by Yoav Segal, and he's awesome. You can see more of his stuff at

You can see more of the Whitechapel crew's awesomeness (and I mean that) right here in the Draw Each Other thread. I got the first contribution in on the first page, so I feel slightly accomplished there. And I managed to get Paul Sizer to make happy noises, which is awesome, because I love his work.

Shit, I have to go to work. Bye!

I can't tell you how much this pleases me.

Jerry O'Connell, drinking an Ale-8. And my silly new icon, both courtesy of the Ale-8 Facebook group. :D

That whole site is full of win, but that made me yell "OH MY GOD!" and I had to tell you like, NOW.

Did you see the SNL Thursday Weekend Update special last night? They did a parody of the Obama/McCain debate, and one of the people asking questions cracked me the hell up because...well, you'll see. If you want to know specifically, look at the second questioner.

This week I am thankful for...

Laughter. It's such a simple thing, but when you go for a while without it, you don't realize how it makes a hell of a lot of difference in your well-being. I love laughing. I love complex jokes that make you think, but I still bust a gut at some of the most base, childish things.

I like watching or listening to stand up comics when I'm down or just bored. Some of my favorites are Bill Hicks, George Carlin, Richard Pryor, Mitch Hedberg (RIP to those guys), Margaret Cho, Eddie Izzard, Patton Oswalt, Brian Posehn, Maria Bamford, Stephen Lynch and Jeff Dunham. I miss when Bill Cosby was still funny. The Himself show still cracks me up.

And I wouldn't really count him as a comedian, but Kevin Smith is a great storyteller. If you've never seen it, An Evening With Kevin Smith and the sequel, Evening Harder are fucking hilarious. I guarantee you that if you ever say "Would you like a portion?" to me in a smarmy British accent, I will be on the floor rolling.

Oh here, seeing it for yourself is funnier than my explanation. )

It was totally fucking awesome. That's all I'll say, so that I don't spoil anyone. But Heath Ledger's performance blew me the hell away. He genuinely scared me a couple of times.

We saw it at the Movie Tavern here in Lexington. It's a full service restaurant/bar/theater. You flip a little switch on your table and a waiter comes to take your order. So I got a cheeseburger and a margarita brought to me while I was watching the movie. Pretty sweet.

But what made it even better was that the maitre'd was dressed as Batman, and the wait staff was other related characters. There was one each of Two-Face, The Joker, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Batgirl, and Jim Gordon taking orders. And they were pretty decent costumes too, so that just made the whole thing ten times more awesome.

And then we got to see the Watchmen trailer on the big screen. I nearly exploded with geek joy tonight. :D

Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion, superheroics, and singing. WHY ARE YOU STILL HERE?! GO!

I'm doing research on advertising rates for the local newspapers and billboards and such. So I was looking over the firm's website for ideas for the ad. Ryan asked if I could come up with something. He said if he'd left it up to Ned (one of the partners), it would be covered with puppies or something. He's a big animal rights activist. Pretty cool.

But yeah, if you're curious, check out the site:

Particularly the attorney profiles, Ned and John in particular. I'm not only impressed, but count myself lucky to get to work with these guys. :)

(And I had to find a reason not to be bitchy ALL day. :p)

This is the greatest thing I have ever seen.

It's Pulp Fiction if it was written by Shakespeare. Oh, and there's a Wikispace for it now, too.

My little brother, the everweird Goober, has managed to land himself a part in a movie. He's been acting in community theater for years. He is a pretty decent actor. He's just a bit of a spaz. Anyway, he posted this bulletin on MySpace today, and I thought I would post it here.

If you would like to be an extra in a movie, help work on a set, or maybe even get a small speaking role, then let me know. I'm getting my first role in a movie, called Hellaphone, and I went to a production meeting today. They said they still need extras and people to work on the set, and I think there was a small chance they may need a couple more people for speaking roles. If you think this will be something fun to help with, let me know and I'll give you the info on who to contact and all that, but try to hurry because even though they probably wont start shooting for a few more weeks, they are filling these positions now!



That's right up there with Deathbed: The Bed That Eats People. Which is a real movie. It's on IMDB, I checked. Patton Oswalt will not lie to us. Oh man, Drew, you must email him and tell him of the Hellaphone. He'll shit his pants.

But yeah. That just amused the hell out of me. So if anyone knows anyone in the vicinity of Lexington, KY that would be interested in such a thing, let them know. Hell, I'm tempted to go grab a part as an extra just so I can say that I was in the masterpiece known as Hellaphone.

FUCK. Now I have that damned "Hella Good" song by No Doubt stuck in my head.

You know I got a Hellaphone
And it just won't stop stabbin'
I use it like I should
But it's gonna keep on stabbin'

*stab stab stab stab stabba stab stab stab stab stab*


Ring ring ring ring ring ring ring......THE HELLAPHONE!
(or switch out the ringing with more stabbing or screaming or something)

I went to Subway to grab lunch for Ashley and myself, and when I got back, she'd left an envelope on my desk. The card inside had a bunch of goofy (and slightly creepy faces), with the caption "Please don't leave me here with these people."

On the inside she wrote me a note saying that she's going to miss me and wishing me luck. And a Starbucks gift card, to keep me fueled up on the road.

I'm gonna miss her most of all. :)

...and David and I have been clucking like chickens across the office at each other the entire time I've been typing this. I'm not sure why.

I had a really good time last night. I really hate driving in New Orleans at night, but there was a minimum of bullshit. The one thing that was nerve-wrenching was going across the Huey P. Long bridge, which is the most terrifying bridge on the fucking planet. The lanes are narrow as hell, and there are fucking CURVES in it. And on top of all that, it's 300 feet high and directly over the Mississippi River. And if that's not enough, there are trains going over and under you. TRAINS! Probably the most aggravating part is that at the end of the bridge is a roundabout, and the signs lie to you. Dan lives in Westwego, so I followed that exit. It took me towards Belle Chase. WTF. But I eventually got there, and that's the point.

My evening of New Orleans debauchery: )
Strange alcohol-fueled dreams: )

So anyway, I stopped by the comic book store on the way home and got my next couple of weeks' worth of visual crack. I gave Johnathan some of my Moo cards, which he proclaimed to be "seriously badass". So I'm off to enjoy my crack and relax for a while.
