I'm apparently in an opera mood right now, so I'm watching things on YouTube. I randomly remembered this hysterical little short I'd seen on PBS way back when I was in high school and thought I'd try to find it. Of course I found it! It's called "All the Great Operas in Ten Minutes" and it's rather amusing:

So we're working on the whole "registry" thing even though I'm really not thrilled with the idea of people getting us gifts just because we decided to make the whole thing legal and we want them to come and watch...

I came across an absolute gem, though: http://www.bottlenotes.com A wine registry! Amazing! Really I think once we set something up (as we inevitably will given that we love wine) it should be more of a wine wish list for all future birthdays/occasions/etc...kind of like an amazon.com wish list (before Amazon started selling things like housewares and set up registries of their own).

So I started reading Penny and Aggie ages ago (I can't remember if it was through Something Positive or Queen of Wands). It's high school, and silly but really serious, and it's one that I've stuck with on my "Daily Reading" list for a couple of years now. Since then I've kept up on their other projects (I also read through Cool Cat Studio which was good, but lost me at times when it spun out into a couple of SFF storylines, and I tried to read another one that one of them is involved with but it just didn't click with me). They started a project called Menage a 3 at some point last year, and it is just so silly and so absurd that I finally had to share. It rarely fails to make me laugh hysterically, and I think I may have kept with it simply because I just have to see what they'll come up with next. Warning: Ma3 is VERY not work safe.

Okay...time to get ready for work now!

For anybody who looks back on college like I do (in other words, fondly, with moments so clear and memorable...the drama and the beauty of it and all the lessons learned that were not in a classroom)... http://picturesofyou.smackjeeves.com/

I don't remember how I came across this, but I adore it. Of course I finally get the chance to catch up on it just as he decides to take a break before the next part (that's around when I first found it, too...right before a break between the first and second books).

Because I want to BUY IT ALL!!!

Only linked because they describe it as first in the series, and I own five that came before it. Ha.

Also why it's a good thing that San Francisco Music Box Co. doesn't exist in malls I frequent...
The ballet!!! I want the rotating music box POTO ballerinas!!!


More whimpering...


*whines* I waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaant!


Well, one more, but not POTO...

What I really really REALLY want for Christmas...only in English.

What was I doing on eBay? Buying Dan's present, of course! >-)

So, with Memorial Day coming up I am put in mind of the Doonesbury strip from Memorial Day 2004 (well, the day before...he runs it on Sundays with the full eight panels). This was the year I had started reading the strip (it ran in the Kalamazoo Gazette which was offered free to all students), and given that it was summer I had subscribed to the strip through email. Starting with Memorial Day that year, and running every one since, he has used his comic strip in a very poignant and fitting way for the holiday. It drew much fire, but I thought it was a beautiful honor to what the holiday stands for.

Doonesbury Memorial Day strips, 2004-2007 )

And...just for a bit of the lighter (but still serious) side of the comic...
Doonesbury on Creationism:
It's big, so I'll be nice... )

Doonesbury on the death of Hunter S. Thompson (the character that's the focus of this particular day was based on him):

ROFL! I completely forgot until I started searching for that that the above was Day 2 in a week's worth of Hunter S. Thompson/Duke tributes...

So, I bought Frasier Season 8 at the store the other day since I came across it. I thought it might be interesting to try to search out that one episode I love from Season 5 on YouTube. Of course I found it!

The Ski Lodge

Part II

Second Life and Schizophrenia, an entry from Christine about an area on SL that enables non-schizophrenics to see a piece of what schizophrenics live with...

This is all [livejournal.com profile] a_treitell's fault...

So, apparently my childhood is coming back, and the New Kids on the Block are going to do a reunion tour. This is hysterical and awesome. I refuse to admit that I liked the New Kids on the Block so much that my dad nearly got me tickets to a concert for one of my birthdays.

They were on the Today Show today...

This is quite possibly one of the coolest sites ever:


$50+ jewelry for only the cost of S&H ($5.99). I've heard great things about it from people who have actually used it.

Beautiful Cancer artwork, and a very unique interpretation of Hera. I've never seen an artist draw her like that, but it somehow seems right.

Christine posted a file of Nina Simone (whom I love) singing Black is the Color of My True Love's Hair, and it reminded me of a Prairie Home Companion show I caught a couple of summers ago on which a young(ish--teenager) girl sings traditional Appalachian-style music. The girl (Elizabeth LaPrelle) sang that song, and I absolutely fell in love. I don't particularly recommend it if you're not a fan of the style, but it's so beautiful (call me crazy, I do enjoy Appalachian singing...it's so unique and has a very individual beauty)...

Dan pointed me towards this. It is amusing. It also ate my evening away by making me sit in front of my computer looking through the blog.
