Hey, you are probably thinking about how you are tired of hearing all those same old songs on your ipod, or whatever...
Well, I know the guy who did this deal.
All of your friends will think you are cooler because you are listening to this rad new bunch of music.
You'll have all the hipster cred points for knowing the thing that they haven't yet heard about.
Hearing this will make you feel better about your day.
Have I sold on it, yet?
Well, get on with making your life better by listening to/downloading some Norm.

I was reminded today that any task that one can possibly complete on-line, should be done that way.
The reason for that - People.
Have you dealt with any people lately?
They tend to be absolute water-headed buffoons.
My simple mission, get an EZ-Pass toll transponder.
I am not sure why I haven't done this before, 'cause Lord knows I had a trees worth of toll receipts in the truck, but anyways...
Seemed to me that just going to pick one up made sense, today.
I saw that the AAA branch had 'em, so I could avoid any actual government office, while on this mission.
Super, easy right?
Mind you, I have all the stuff ready to prove residency, this, that and the other thing to accomplish the task.
I had actually just reread the requirements, before walking out the door and driving to the location.
First girl "Oh, we can't do that with this license and that. But let me check..."
Next woman, eavesdropping on my situation, "Yeah, we can do that I think, but I don't know how."
New dude "Sure, we can do that, with that..."
First girl, to me, "Yeah, I am sorry but we can't do that."
I was standing right there, hearing all of this.
Their conversation happened right in front of me.
I had everything required to complete the task.
Just not the things the first girl was used to seeing.
I just wanted to give them money...
To get a device to make it easier to for me give them fucking money.
I came home and got it done in about four minutes. Four actual minutes. Done
And I am left thinking that the Cranston AAA branch is staffed by a pack of dull morons...
Nothing more outrageous than a person unwilling to do something because they think it is against the rules - when they don't actually understand the actual rules. Just completely fail in their base responsibilities due to their own gross incompetence, right in front of a customer.
Been a while since we had an art post, around here.
Honestly, I haven't seen any art, really.
Hell, I hardly have left the house for months. Doing a post about some painting on our walls seems a little silly, so anyway...
Stumbled across this guy, the other day.
There is an artist interview and more work over here.
There is a samuri vs. Godzilla painting, for example.
How could you not want to see that?

Tofu, right...about that...
There is talk around the house of a more, uhm, vegan diet.
That is a whole thing, of course. Things here tend to be pretty healthy, but you know the vegan thing seems to be all about the rules.
Anyway, it has me poking around the web, looking at vegan cooking stuff...
Kinda weird, the demographic of vegan-food-blogger-types.
It seems to be almost exclusively written by women.
There are way too many soup recipes.
Vegans must have crazy sweet cravings, 'cause there are a whole bunch of dessert recipes.
Man, beans, a lot of goddamned legume based things.
I am one to make sweeping generalizations, based on minimal research.
Anyway, there is that going on.
I suppose I am down for the concept, but it does also make me want to go get a hamburger.
My gal is a pescetarian, which pretty much makes me one, too. Most days...
As the primary cooker/grocery-getter, around the house, I am pretty not into having to prepare two separate meals, at every meal. Or a meal and another thing, or however you parse the deal out. That just gets cumbersome and seems stupid. And, maybe I am too lazy to do it.
There are the health benefits and some relief from all of the heavy ethical issues of eating meat. I ponder that stuff, regular like, you know...
Likely, there will be a menu shift for my better half and I, when cooking at home.
I will continue my eat-whatever-the-hell-I-want-in-moderation approach, most days. It seems to work for me, on some level and I hate giving good shit up because of somebody's made up rules.
Oh, I found The Vegan Stoner website and it's got fun recipes and a killer presentation.
Here is a recipe for Asian style lettuce wrap things, that looks good.

Yeah, I got nothin' for you, today.
Here is a picture of a smiling monkey.
I think it is smiling.
I suppose it could be baring it's teeth, in some scary, threatening gesture...because it wants to just pick up a rack and pound your skull head into a blood-mud-brain puree...
But I am no primate expert, so let's just imagine it is a smile.

Is it just me, or does it seem like the folks up on the space station spend a lot of time making videos about doing stuff in space?
Seriously, here is a shaving video.
Dude, shaving in space...
The latest in astronauts-doing-everyday-things videos
Yeah, astronauts, we fucking get it - there is no gravity in space.
You gotta strap your ass to the toilet, when you poo.
You sleep upside down.
Your M&M's float around, if you drop them.
Because there is no gravity...
Go do some PhD level science shit, or something, and lay off the YouTube account a bit, alright?
You are in space and we are not.
Stop rubbing it in...
Special this makes me kinda want a VRod edition.
OK, the VRod is not really a HD that I ever find myself dreaming about...
I tend to go for, you know, uncomfortable and impractical it seems. That's my thing.
But this one sort makes some gears turn.
I assume there is some air that gets pumped into those rear shocks, when actually moving.
Now, imagine a hard bags on the back...
Yeah, I said hard bags. I am actually imagining a bagger bike here.
I might even go along with those forwards.
Thing would probably be a mile pounding menace.
Unless there is some huge flaw about this things, I just don't know about.
I could kinda see myself on something like that...

Check 'em out, if they are headed your way.
You know, if you're into blood and raging metal and such...
Ran into a couple of these dudes, regular like.
Super nice guys, though I probably shouldn't say that.
Might spoil their whole thing, if people heard that...
