These Are Not The Adult Boobies You're Looking For...

I don't know whether to be amused, flattered, confused or worried about the new incoming referral traffic to the blog.

Apparently someone at Adult Friend Finder is sending people this way via bit.ly and tiny.url links. However, I can't figure out how, so I don't know why.

I do know that I feel like I'm letting down the people who click over. I mean, yeah, I'm an adult and I have a pretty nice rack, but it's not like I'm looking for someone to take long, sex swing shopping walks with in the moonlight.

For the record, if you're one of the people who found me via that site, while I'm sorry I'm not the hot, sexy, morally ambiguous...

Oh, wait. I am that.

Okay, how about this -- I'm not nekkid or looking to get nekkid with people I met on the internet.

Well, unless you play DnD and it's some sort of drunken party campaign at Gencon.

And people wonder how I get myself into trouble...

Malcolm Reynolds + Han Solo = Mal Solo You Can Wear!


Someone finally did it. Someone made a shirt that captures what most of the geek babes I know have been thinking since the beginning of Firefly.

Malcolm Reynolds = Han Solo ergo Mal Solo.

Excuse me a second. I need to have a moment here.

::squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee::

Okay. I'm better now.

"You've never head of Serenity?"

"Should I have?"

"It's the ship that outran the gorram Reavers at Persephone!" *

Jam City Rollergirls Is Derby Awesome For The Wii

This is one for my Derby Girls and the gamer babes. ;-)

Jam City Rollergirls for the Wii.

I wanna play. ::nodnod::



This is from the site:

At the risk of repeating ourselves, JAM CITY ROLLERGIRLS is Earth's first roller derby video game of consequence, and will be released TODAY, JANUARY 24TH, AT 11 AM CST for the Nintendo Wii! The game will be DOWNLOAD ONLY because parking at stores is such a pain, so you'll need to hook your Nintendo Wii up to the internet in order to purchase and download the game, which is actually so easy even we could do it. Best of all, the game will only set you back 1000 dollars! Wait, we meant 1000 Nintendo points, not 1000 dollars. 1000 Nintendo points is like 10 dollars, not 1000 dollars. We regret the error, although we were sort of close.
You can check it out here. Thanks Susan for the tip!

Seriously, I had a mini geekgirlgasm.



Thanks Charlie for sending me this ;-)

If you're interested you can find Stjepan Hauser on Amazon here and Luka Sulic has a site as well.

The Jetta Ad, Gene Kelly, NPR, Bill Prady and Inception. My train of thought scares even me

I wanted to add a thought or two about the Jetta ad with Gene Kelly, since I saw a little traffic heading my way from NPR on a post that wasn't happy about the ad. For that matter, she and Bill Prady had a talk about it.

When Linda Holmes of NPR linked to my original post, she mentioned I was a fan of the ad. ::grin:: But I want to clarify something. I'm a fan of the ad because it featured Gene Kelly and Donald O'Connor and because it's so easy in this day and age of Step Up 3D to forget their kind of dancing. (Not to mention things like numbers being shot in one take and the like)

Yes, it's not the best quality and it looks funky. But it's also a 30 second commercial and -- let's be fair -- it looks like art compared to a Head On commercial.

There are people who saw Inception and had no idea that effects there date back to Fred Astaire and Royal Wedding. I knew and I was doubly charmed by the sequence. But many people didn't and, in a way, that's a shame.

In my mind, if a commercial like this leads someone to the internet to search it, and then they find the original and then they find Summer Stock and the newspaper dance and then they find Fred Astaire and then they find...

Well, you see where I'm going. ::grin::

Dear Jetta, I Love You For Giving Me Gene Kelly ;-)

Okay, I should clarify. Gene Kelly and Donald O'Connor.




Whis is actually from this piece of art (that I didn't know existed.)



And, because it was related, thanks for this gem. Gene Kelly tap dancing on skates. swooooooon.

Half Nekkid Leia's, Bakin' In The Sun.



My brain is not awake yet, so I figured I'd try a picture.

I originally posted this in November of 2009. It seemed like a nice post to revisit.  ::grin::

*my apologies to the B-52's for the rework of their lyrics. It fit!

Spelling Gone Rogue (For you Warcraft Nerds)


I laughed hard enough at this that I had to hit my inhaler afterwards to keep from dying. 

Caller: "I have a question about my account."


Me: "I’d be happy to help! What email address do you use to log in?"


Caller: "It’s rogue@[email host].com"


Me: "Sorry sir, I can’t seem to find that email in the system. To confirm, let me spell out the full address: r-o-g-u-e@[email host].com?"


Caller: "No it’s *****r-o-u-g-e!"


Me: "Oh, rouge like the makeup. The word "rogue" is spelled r-o-g-u-e."


Caller: "That’s not how rogue is spelled! I can’t believe how stupid your customer service is!"


Me: "If you want to be sure, you can check a dictionary for the correct spelling."


Caller: "Fine, I will! I’m going to search dictionary.com right now!"
(A minute passes as he searches.)


Caller: "F***! I’ve been using this email for years! I can’t believe my guild members never pointed this out to me!"*hangs up*

Chris Colfer Is Just Too Perfect At The Golden Globes

I love when people get on TV and say just what I would say. I also love the internet because this is the only moment of the Golden Globe Awards I wanted to make sure I saw.

Chris Colfer is so awesome. I think he deserved this Golden Globe. ::grin:: And good on him.

Warcraft Awesomeness: Who's The Tank?

I have no doubt that most of you have seen this, but I hadn't and I laughed my ass off ;-)

Granted, there are days my raids feel like this, but that's a story for another day.

Ted Williams Goes Into Rehab And It's Our Fault (Rant)

When I first saw the video of Ted Williams and saw the response on the internet, I was touched like a lot of people were. It's cool to see someone given a little help in this day and age and, if a video could help get him a job and maybe back on his feet, that would be awesome.

But by day two, I was worried. Because the internet and the media just seemed to grab a hold of the man and I had a feeling that things were going to go very, very wrong.

It didn't take long. Buzzfeed linked an article today that Ted Williams is checking into rehab.

Gee. You take a man from the streets. A man who likely had issues in his life that left him homeless and estranged from his family -- and you shove all sorts of things in his face. You make him an overnight sensation and you interview him everywhere and you even get him on Doctor Phil and you wonder why he can't handle it.

Not to mention, no one seems to have any issue with filming the meltdown in progress. Entertainment Tonight just ate it up. And the comments to the posts are sickening. It's like people think he let them down or something.

It bothers me.

Because it's all well and good that everyone jumped on this guy's story when it was a feel good moment. But will anyone take responsibility for being part of the cause of his "fall from grace"?

Something tells me that's not a story anyone's gonna cover.

A Star Wars La Loteria Game -- Just What I Need


For some reason, I had a memory the other day of being a kid and playing La Loteria with my friend and her family.  If you've never played, think bingo, but with a Spanish twist and pictures.

One of the things that I always loved about the game was the art itself. But Chepo Peña may have just created a La Loteria game that I love more than the original.

This is the Space Loteria and, as you can see, it's Star Wars awesome.

It's definitely worth checking out the site and looking at each card individually.

I wonder if Chepo minds if I still play using pinto beans. It's sorta tradition.

It's the middle of the night...

...and I was sitting here thinking about how well V: The Final Battle actually still holds up.

Sure, some of it is dated -- but for the most part, it's still pretty darn good.

I have more thoughts on this, but it's the middle of the night.

Heh.
