Pandas & Rainbows

The latest meme seems to be pandas vomiting rainbows, first seen at Flickr’s explore page.

Where I was in 2001

Thanks to Google’s 2001 search index, I was able to find my original weblog and worldbeatplanet.

In 2001 I was using Radio Userland for my blog, which I hosted at

WorldBeatPlanet was a static page, long before I switched first to PHPNuke and finally to Drupal.

Needs. More. Cowbell. (via metafilter) is lots of fun. Upload a MP3 and it will add cowbell & random Christopher Walken clips. Here’s one I made:

Thanks to Wonkette for this image.


Help John McCain Count His Houses

I really love this video. You may recall the song from an iPod commercial.

Spelling FAIL of the day

The AP made an unintentionally funny spelling error when they posted this article, describing Lieberman as the Democratic “vice presidential prick”. Hopefully they won’t fix it, but here’s a screenshot just in case.

I get a lot of these spams, but I found this one particularly amusing because of the name he used.

Come and follow Mii

Mission Bay Community Church is providing a Jeses Mii for anyone who brings a Wii or Wii remote.

This Easter Sunday, we will provide anyone who attends church with a Jesus Mii for their Nintendo Wii console. Just bring your Wii Remote or Wii and we’ll transfer a Jesus Mii to your system.

Then you, too, can box with Jesus, golf with Him, or even bowl with Him! A night bowling with Jesus? What could be better? Especially if you get that turkey and best Him by 100 points! Don’t worry;—He’ll forgive you.


Best slashdot comment ever

“Of course any comparisons between Fidel Castro and RMS are absurd. One’s a bearded, long-winded Communist dictator who tolerates no dissent; the other one speaks Spanish.” — Anonymous Coward, in response to Richard Stallman stepping down as Emacs maintainer

CD Cover Meme

I found this on Flickr a few days ago.

Make your own CD Cover with the following steps and rocket yourself to mulit-platinum status and start fending off the groupies!

    The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

    The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

    The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover (make sure the picture is CC licensed).
