Blah for 2003.01

For entertainment, I thought of something. What if comic book superheros weren’t that heroic and ambitious? What if, instead of using their superpowers to fight crime, they used them in regular jobs? The Flash might work at a fast food restaurant, and Spider-Man could be high-rise window washer. Jean Grey of the X-Men might work down at the docks loading and unloading cargo from ships, and Nightcrawler could work for a metropolitan courier service. And Wolverine? Well, Benihana’s might just have a need for another teppanyaki chef.

Warning:
Zwan is not the Pumpkins. You may think so, because Billy was the head of the Smashing Pumpkins and now he's the head of Zwan, but: Zwan is not the Pumpkins. Zwan almost seems like James Iha music.

Why do we tune in to the Super Bowl? For the commercials of course.

If you haven’t already done so, I highly recommend visiting Kottke’s Remaindered Links, and re-visiting often.

With gift certificates and coupons and reward points combined, tonight we were essentially paid two dollars to eat at T.G.I. Friday’s.

Thank you to those who send me e-mail and compliments.

Sometime’s there’s a lot to say. Sometime’s there isn’t. Guess which time this is.

Sure, The Osbournes is a good show, but I think it might be better if it had subtitles so that we might be able to better understand what Ozzy is saying.

Hell—err, I mean classes—have officially begun with the homework due tonight.

“I have to go in to work on Sunday,” she said.

“For what?” I said.

“For registration.”

“For what?”

“For the students.”

“For what?”

“So they can take classes.”

“For what?”

“To get an education.”

“For what?”

“To get a good job.”

“For what?”

“To bring home the bacon and get some boom boom.”

“For what?”

“To procreate.”

“For what?”

“To carry on the species.”

“For what?”

“To keep polluting the environment.”

“So you’re going in to work on Sunday to keep polluting the environment?”

“Just about.”

... And the man is always left.

Make no mistake about it, the woman is always right.

Sometimes you see the same stock photography being used over and over again. And sometimes, you feel sorry for those models who have to suffer having their faces plastered all over worthless products and cheap advertising.

What happened to restaurant service? It used to be that when you asked to take the rest of your meal home, they would take the rest of your meal, but it in containers, and bring it back in the commonly referred to “doggy bag”. Nowadays, when you ask for the rest of your meal to go, they simply bring you some styrofoam containers and you’re left to package up the rest of your meal.

Album sales are down, yet income from concerts is up. What does this tell us? It says that people will still pay to see musicians perform, even if they want the music for free.

Sometimes when I shave, I’ll miss a spot and not notice. I figure it’s either because I’m getting older, or because I always shave first thing in the morning when I’m too damn tired.
