  1. In the live version of Frank Zappa's "Tinseltown Rebellion" from Does Humor Belong in Music? there are multiple references to "Sunshine of Your Love", "Whip It", "Rock You Like A Hurricane", and "I'll Tumble For Ya." Blue Oyster Cult's "The Marshall Plan" includes the first few bars of "Smoke on the Water."
  2. Fun topic! Here's one without lyrics: Alice Cooper's "Unfinished Sweet" has a snippet of the Jame Bond theme right in the middle of it. I'm still not sure why he put that in a song about going to the dentist... Tone Loc's "Funky Cold Medina" makes mention of his song "Wild Thing". Bad dog!
  3. If you belong to the cat, they'll take care of you. No sense wasting a perfectly good slave. The test of this is; have they ever brought you half of a dead thing? If so, you are owned.
  4. I shudder to think what things they'd do if they had opposable thumbs.
  5. I decided to change banks a couple of months ago after my old bank screwed up my account while I was in the hospital. Did a little research, picked out a locally operated credit union, and went to the closest branch to get things rolling. As soon as I walked in I knew it was the right choice, because there was a 12" tall action figure of Super Saiyan Goku doing a Kamehameha on the counter in front of the end teller station. A few weeks later I talked to that teller, and he brings in a different thing every week to put there.
  6. So now that you have a new friend, what will you name it? : ) A couple of days ago one of my old friends sent me a care package. I had told him about the fire a few months ago, and I figured he was going to send some replacement books and/or CDs and/or DVDs since we both have the same tastes in entertainment. He sent me a laptop. A good, modern laptop, one that can run everything that my late lamented pc could run. It would be an understatement to say that I was stunned. So after a brief allergy attack (I WASN'T CRYING, DAMMIT), my nerd DNA kicked in and I've been happily configuring and installing ever since. I just hope I remember to sleep and eat occasionally.
  7. To be fair, TV studios can get hellishly hot when the studio lights are turned on. It's common for the talent to wear a suit jacket with shorts if the audience is only going to see the upper half of their body. The trick is making sure that's all they see.
  8. Joy! I just got my very first blackmail spam. Apparantly they used malware to record me doing naughty things while looking at porn, or at least that's what they claim. Personally, I don't see how the selfie camera could record anything with all the peanut butter and duck feathers that I...um, never mind... In any case, it's kind of surprising that I never got one of these before.
  9. MegasXLR is one of the all time great robot shows. Great VAs, great music (naturally, since it was produced by WB), likable hero with a snarky sidekick. And that theme song! I wanted a full length version of that song. So many great moments in that show too.
  10. I forgot to mention that house centipedes are good guys, even if they are creepy looking. They eat cockroaches & stuff. Happy birthday @BooksRule. I'll send you a centipede if I can catch one.
  11. If they can get the director and writer(s) from the Crank movies, that might turn out ok.
  12. Did I ever mention the mouse that was running around the new house? Well, the landlord's cat took care of it. Unfortunately I encountered another non-rent-paying housemate tonight, and have dubbed him Chip the Giant Cockroach. Tomorrow I'll head to a store for some appropriate countermeasures. I also saw the darndest looking bug ever today on my wall. Looked like a cross between a dust bunny and a really big silverfish. Apparently it's called a House Centipede. Big old legs sticking out every which way.
  13. I have a cell phone carrying case with a belt clip. The top flap uses a magnet to keep closed. I either use that or wear a shirt with a pocket for the phone.
  14. Here's how the day started: - Got up. It's cold and raining. - Made my morning trip to the bathroom. On the way, one of the roommate's dogs, George, bit me on the ankle. - While in the br, one of the roommates gives me hell for taking too long. Total elapsed time: 10 minutes. Maybe I should just call in sick and go back to bed.
  15. Hi all, I'm back after, what, a month and a half? Been keeping busy with getting my life back in order. The two month room rental I had ran out, so I had to find another. Luckily I was able to find a room for less than the going rate (the housing market is tight because of the fires two years ago), and it's located in the middle of town close to everywhere I might need to go. On the less positive side, the house is a bit crowded, with 7 of us occupying 6 bedrooms (every room that could be has been converted to a bedroom) plus 3 in tiny cottages in the back lot. And did I mention that there are only 2 bathrooms total? The housemates are a motley crew, to put it charitably. The owner is something of a local celebrity, running for various city government offices every chance he gets. Seems like a nice enough guy, with a fine disregard for the minutiae of city building codes. My room is a spacious 10.5 x 12 feet. My previous landlord/housemate donated some furniture to me since we were all moving out at the same time, and somehow I've managed to shoehorn all of it in: A full futon & frame, desk & office chair, recliner, two small file cabinets, a mini-fridge, a folding clothes drying rack, a floor lamp, a side table, and misc small items. In a 10.5 x 12 room! I think I think I inadvertently warped space to do it. I may post pictures once I get everything tweaked to my satisfaction. Also, I've been back to work for several weeks now. Yay! And it's an "essential service", so I'm not getting laid off.
