Non PC songs…

There’s something refreshing about listening to songs where it’s obvious that they don’t care what the fuck you think of them. The one I’m listening to right now from Wilco is about driving drunk. (You’re going to make me spill my beer if you don’t learn how to steer… I’ve got a court day in …

A silly test (Jenny, you there?;-)

OK, here’s one of those silly tests you can take on the internet… After you die…Guardian Angel After death, you will exist as a guardian angel in order to protect your still-living loved ones. You might even inspire a classic Christmas movie. Take this quiz at QuizGalaxy.com Isaac

Down to 207..

Only 8 more pounds to go to reach my goal of under 200. Maybe if I exercised some more (or at all for that matter) I could get there quicker, or go past that. I seem to have far less time than I did before, not exactly sure what I’m doing with it other than …

Spending money..

Got the paycheck with the big holiday money in it today and went on a little shopping spree. Ordered some new clothes, new ties (it really is time to retire some of them), a cologne I’ve wanted to try (it was on sale!), and I will order my train tickets for my trip to NYC …

Ahh, analog bliss…

Just got in the LAST record cleaning system. It’s a 5 step process, two of which are for the stylus. I’ve got some old LPs my grandmother gave me and this stuff has made a dramatic difference to how they sound. Much less surface noise, and less breakup on loud sections. Overall a much smoother …

Unbelievable…

ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now is one of the leading proponents of so called “living wage” legislation. Interestingly enough, they requested an exemption to California’s minimum wage laws back in 1995. What was their rationale? “According to ACORN, this adverse impact will be manifested in two ways: first, ACORN will be …

I thought so (metro chief continued)

An article in the post today confirms what I thought, the severance package of the outgoing metro chief is excessive. It doesn’t look like anyone else in a similar position with similar tenure would come close to his benefits. I’m not really all that upset with him really, after all, how many of us would …
