Location: Free State Brewery, Lawrence, KS

Just finished up a fine meal of cheddar ale soup (if you haven't had it, you're missing out) and grilled shrimp pasta--with black linguini, which was cool. And tasty. Cool and tasty. We came up to hang with the Newgen-factor for the day (Shancole came last night). Our game of disc golf got rained out, but that led to disc-jumping at the skate park--look for pics in the future on my, Netty's, or Shannon's blogs. Then we Mario-Karted at Newgen's house til dinner. Good day. Gooood day.

Since I haven't posted for a while, and since I'm currently Wireless'd! it seems appropriate to say something now. So, what do you think of this: a story about a monkey who gets cast out of monkey society because he refuses to throw his own poop like everyone else. I thought of that last night, as an absurd example of something (I forget what) in a discussion with Netty. She liked the idea, though I think it was because it was 3 in the morning and she was tired. It was funny though.

Slushyville now has Coke! I mixed mine with cherry, and it's a-pretty pretty good.

New blog

In the interest of not cluttering up this blog with a lot of long posts, I've made a new one concerning the upcoming Archival Edition of Star Wars. Check it out. I suppose you also retain the right to not check it out, as well, but that just wouldn't be as cool.

Episode III

Go see it. It makes I and II better (especially if you watch them all together, as we did today) and in my opinion it makes the original trilogy better as well--the Rebellion, Luke being the last of the Jedi, Yoda and Ben being in hiding, the Luke/Leia/Vader family thing...all of it is more complicated and seems more important now. Lucas worried us with Episode I, II was better by far, but III makes it seem like he knew what he was doing all along. I'm sure a lot of people will disagree, but it sucks to be them because in my world Star Wars is still awesome.

My finals are over, I'm Chipotle'd up, and there's a storm a-brewing. I'm happy, and I just figured yous might wanna know. :)

Funny stuff

Since some of us were discussing (and pointing out the flaws of) scientology not too long ago...here's something funny.

Slowly learning Flash

As you may know, Womping Pirate Industries currently has a project in the works to rent out African countries to select clientele. We currently have a website under construction, which will have all the details. Check it out, and keep an eye out for updates!

HFC! (Holy Freakin Crap!)

Netty painted models last night! Without any warning at all, she asked where her night goblins were and she finished six of 'em! Netty paints on her own, and one more piece of a fun summer clicks into place. :)

Creepy organ music!

Yes! I gots me some Phantom of the Opera music--the main theme (with vocals) and the Overture (just creepy organ, no vocals). Two more free songs to go!

$ for music

Yes, it's true: I've finally downloaded something and actually paid for it. MSN's music d/l service has a deal right now--buy one song ($0.99) and get 5 free. I've been wanting to have The Crystal Method's 'Name of the Game' and Ozomatli's 'Who's to Blame?' (hm...they rhyme...I hadn't noticed before) so now I have em, plus 4 more songs, when I and/or Netty decide what we want. I'm not sure if it's a 1-time deal, or if each song you buy = 5 free, but either way it's a pretty good deal. If the 'other' kind of downloading has become a hassle for you, as it has for me, this is a pretty good (and cheap) option. You can play each file on up to 5 different computers at a time, but you have to sign in w/ your .NET passport on each machine to do it, which means no mp3 players (at least it doesn't work on mine, but it's freakin Chinese, so who knows?). As far as I know, though, the CD-burning workaround works for this like it does for i-Tunes, so no real problem there. Based on my experience so far, I believe I'll go ahead and recommend it to ya'll.

Buy spurs and wear them.
