From Shiny Diamonds, by Violent J:
It ain't much going on but that's where I belong
Because some of them days be shiny diamonds,
And it can't be wrong,
Because some of them nights the moon be shining,
Like a world of gold, so much unexplored
And I be climbing,
Homies rhyming,
Heaven, I'm in.

If there's one annoying thing about blogs, it's the tendency for them to devolve into a bunch of drivel involving the blogger's cats.

That said, please enjoy some photos of my cat Stinky making love to his favorite stuffed animal.

Kitty porn! You know you love it.

As much as I don't like her singing, I think I may have just become a Lauryn Hill fan.

I just learned from Venadium's blog thet they're making a "Garfield" movie. The trailer has just killed my good mood. Why must they keep killing perfectly decent cartoon characters by mutating them into live-action movies??? Cartoons are cartoons for a reason.

Simple math:

  • "Grinch" cartoon = good, "Grinch" movie = bad.
  • "Cat in the Hat" cartoon = good, "Cat in the Hat" movie = bad.
  • "Scooby Doo..." okay, crap either way.

I have a crawling suspicion the plot of "Garfield" will involve jewel thieves or bank robbers.

In other news, Grey Frequency continues to rock.

I've submitted two gif animations to b3ta's "National Suicide Week" image

You need to know Star Trek to get this one.
You need to know Dr Who to get this one.

I must be on some kind of 70s music bastardization kick.
