Went and saw Henry Rollins do his spoken word spiel tonight.. A great time was had by all. Three uninterrupted hours of audible joy. Damn, that man can talk and he is absolutely hilarious.

I go sleepy-bye now.

Private Dancer

Just a short one tonight as I’m in the middle of a hardcore novel writing binge. Yeah, you heard me. I did indeed say novel writing. I’ve managed a good couple of thousand words so far and have no intention of stopping anytime soon.

So with that in mind I’m going to post this and then dive back into it.

I thought this was incredibly cool. I was solidly right brained to my complete lack of shock or amazement. I wasn’t even able to turn it around by focusing on it. Then again, I’m like William Black in Mallrats. I can never see the damn sailboat in those stupid magic eye puzzles.

And back to the grindstone I go. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Because Bad Things Happen In Threes.

Because of a throwaway comment I made regarding my good friend Jon, his friend Mark came up with this. Not to be outdone, Jon’s wife Amanda got in on the joke and produced this.

As I’m the third of these right proper bastards, I thought it rather fitting to weigh in with my own entry in this ever so inside joke. As promised… a Lolcat version… or I guess it’s a LoLjon version.

Reading The Unread

I mentioned the other day that I felt like I was starting to get blogged out. That I’m running out of things to say, or at least it seems that way. I promised myself that I was going to write something every day, no matter how worthless it was just to stay in the practice of doing so but it’s beginning to get a little more difficult. Soon I’ll start degenerating into vagaries, hollow platitudes and comments about the weather. Either that or I’ll go back to posting endless memes and YouTube videos. Gah!

Pale Blue Dot

I wasn’t going to blog today. I really had no desire and nothing at all to say that was anywhere remotely close to being worthwhile. I guess I’m all blogged out. That all changed when I stumbled across this absolute gem of a YouTube video that I had to post. It managed to perfectly capture the reflective melancholy that I feel today and sums up many of my thoughts and feelings. On that note, I’m going to leave you with the video and say nothing more. Enjoy.


I am almost loathe to admit this. I like statistics.

I like studying the breakdown of populations, discovering different aspects of how they spend their lives and the like. I’ve never been particularly fond of math, my strengths have always lain along the artistic path, but I do have some skill at it so I guess that may account for some of my fascination. I’m particularly drawn to the percentages and breakdowns shown on my webpage, probably because they have a direct relationship to me and in a sense are part of the whole ego-centric idea of webpages in general.

So with that in mind, here are some of the odd stats gathered by those information miners over at google regarding this little font of narcissism that I call home.

In the past 30 days:

It’s good to know that 63.13% of you are smart enough to use Firefox. I’m equally as disenheartened to realize that 27.5% are still using that god forsaken browser known as Internet Exploder. 5% of you use Netscape (hey kids it’s Firefox with bloatware), 4.06% are using Safari and only a measly 0.31% are using Opera.

43.75% of my visitors are Canadian. 28.44% are from Japan which scares me because I only know 2 people there. Only 21.56% come from the US. 1.88% from the UK and Australia, Italy, Germany, Netherlands, Chile, South Korea, Bulgaria (probably Viktor Krum), Greece, Belgium and Serbia all show up with under 1% each. I could break it down by city, but I’m sure you all know where you live already so I won’t bother (but I know where you live now too. Muwhahahaha)

Unsurprisingly 91.25% of you use Windows. 5% are using a Mac and 3.75% don’t know what they’re using.

The average time spent on the site is 2 minutes and 48 seconds.

My most popular page is still my story of my recent hospital ordeal.

Most of my referral traffic comes from the RSS feed on Facebook (not surprised by this at all), The rest comes from random places so I’m not going to embarass those involved.

Okay, I think I have exhausted all the possibilities of this exercise for the moment. I suppose I’ll have to do it again in a month just to compare.

The Magical Musical Mystery Test Post

Okay I’m going to try something new here. Let’s see if this works.

Here’s some music that I’ve been grooving to a lot lately. Let’s see if this podcast/player plugin type thingy actually works. If it does, I MAY, and that’s a big maybe, get really drunk one day in the near future and record an actual audio blog podcast type thing. If I can find my camcorder’s firewire cable, it might actually be a video podcast.
