Wisdom from the Drive-In

I found this on the menu of the Beacon Drive-In in Spartanburg, SC, which was featured on the show "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives " on the Food Network.

You never know where you're going to find your moment of inspiration for the day...

Smalltown Poets - The Sublime to the Ridiculous

Just for fun today I did a search on YouTube with the word "Smalltown Poets". You never know what you're gonna find. For example, here's a pretty neat acapella arrangement of the song "I'll Give" from the Poet's eponymous debut album:

Then again, there's this:

I'm quite sure that when my dad wrote the poem that became the lyrics to "One Of These Days" (from the Poets' "Listen Closely"), and when Danny wrote the song and subsequently recorded it in one continous take (that's right folks, no edits on that particular song), he never envisioned it as the soundtrack to an anime sci/fi fantasy cartoon...

An unexpected advocate of creationism

What you see above is the trailer for the upcoming documentary Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed by, of all people, Ben Stein.

For the couch potato gamer in you...

Wii Fit, eh? I've got to admit, I'm intrigued. I love my Wii (as do my nieces & nephews) and I hate to exercise. Maybe this will get me off my duff for a bit of exercise? Plus, it doubles as a scale and weight-tracking system.

Lot 114

See that house there? No, not the two in the background. The one in my imagination, on that empty lot right in front! That's where my new home is going to be. Lot #114.
I'll keep you posted with construction updates as time goes on.

In the meantime, somebody BUY MY HOUSE!
