Contrast and Compare
Winter storms are ravaging the American country side, bogging down Christmas travelers. Here are some pictures of what I'm talking about:
...And here's a picture taken about a week ago from my home town:
all I have to say is:
HAPPY HOLIDAYS SUCKAS!!!
(pay no attention to the fact that I'll be heading for the snow over the new years)

Check out some video of the old Mini
in action...Stay tuned for the "indo" at the end.
After too long a wait it appears that I will finally be getting racks installed on the ol' coche. A trip to REI revealed that conventional racks couldn't offer me a system that would support a surfboard so it appears I am forced to turn to the official dealer installed racks.
Luckily for me there is a thing called "the holiday season" and my family is gonna pitch in as a gift. HUZZAH!
I was talking to a friend about Captain Eo
the other day. "Eo" -- as I'm sure you will recall -- was the 3d movie attraction at Disneyland featuring Michael Jackson as a space-faring swashbuckler. You've seen it right?
I remember seeing ads for "Eo" with Mark Hamill
who would say, "People always ask me when the next Star Wars is coming out..." (This was post Jedi, but well before the prequels), "...Let me tell you -- this is the next Star Wars". Which sounded like a glowing endorsement until I realized that every product he spoke for and every movie premiere that would give him air time yielded that same glowing endorsement. "People always ask me about the X-wing fighters in Star Wars...Well the new Ford Taurus is the next X-wing fighter".
Anyway, I was looking up Captain Eo on the internet and I was surfing through all sorts of old Jackson stuff and it made me a little sad to contrast the old Jackson with the new one. Kids love pop stars, and Michael Jackson was THE pop star of my youth. Now look at him...ugh. More proof that most music stars should die young I guess.
