(The Daily What of the day)

This is awesome. Just awesome. I already wanted to live in Iceland, they keep giving me reasons to.

“I guess the men of Iceland will just have to get used to the idea that women are not for sale.”


The word “epic” was invented for this poster. And jellyfish! And….I just bought it.

Me and him have zombies and unicorns in common. Me and Gaga have steak in common.

Steak tartare is good.

I recently yelled at a kid for being ignorant. What? Well, he was all angry about WBC coming here – because he was “gay and atheist.” I was trying to tell him how to fight them a little more intelligently (later telling the boyf, “If I am at a party talking about the New Covenant, TAKE ME HOME.”) but he didn’t want to hear it. He just wanted to be “gay and atheist”  and “angry.” Show up and holler at ’em. Because people who disagree with each other get SO much accomplished with they have a sign-off.

Me, I say DO SOMETHING. Jackass. – not you, gentle reader, just the many, many kids I’ve known over the years who’s idea of fighting “the man” was to hang out in an anarchist bookstore all day, spanging in a  FREE MUMIA t-shirt and pass out drunk on a couch after an Assmen show. Yeah, THAT’ll show them.

Anyways. This kid, give him a cookie. Made of checks written to these charities.

I especially enjoy the thank you cards, sent to Rev. Phelps. Beautiful. Protest with action, not t-shirts.


The internet wins again!

I hadn’t bothered to watch the auto-tune science video thingie, because I don’t understand science and the autotune gimmick fad wasn’t all that funny the first time I saw the news autotuned. But now Bill Nye Science Guy is involved, so I watched it.

Again, another job well done. Really made me want to blast off in my rocketship and crash into a planet. And by that I mean drop a bunch of acid and listen to these guys talk about outerspace while I roll around on the carpet. – Geekologie, who makes everything awesome

Oh and…and…I helped my friend be a Klingon for Halloween once, in Phila. She had bought this forehead prosthetic, and it was awesome. This was circa Before Nerdy Shit Was Cool and Hip. I would describe it with words, but I don’t know if the brains of kids nowadays know how to make pictures in their brains. (Really nobody reads this so I’m not going to waste my time.) Anyways, this shirt wins.

TopatoCo is hands-down (wait…hands down…?) one of the best t-shirt sites evah. Smart and cute and sciencey and cheeky and funny….


(Spock is on my List. Most of the men on my List are imaginary. *sigh*)


(Cover your bases and never have to wonder what you’re going to do with a tacky wolf t-shirt five years from now. Oh, who are we kidding, five minutes ago. Get it? Because that is how long it was funny? Actually, I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve ALWAYS had a fondness for those sexy Indian woman/wolves/wizard t-shirts. And vans. )


(I like how the file name is “goat science satan.” If that doesn’t promise a good time, NOTHING does.)

And last, but not least, because I only made it through nine of the 21 pages:

The other night I found myself trying to explain what a ROFLcopter is. You know what? I have no idea what a ROFLcopter is.  Teh interwebs just takes over your BRAIN! “It’s a meme.” And then I had to try to explain what a meme is. “You know…like keyboard cat.” And then I had to try to explain what keyboard cat is. Why why a t-shirt, with three images of a cat playing a keyboard under a moon, made me laugh. And then my head exploded.
