How can Nigerian banking help you?

Posted by: Dave In: Technology|Web

I’ve been using google’s gmail for my personal email for several years now. I love it for many reasons (some of which I’ve already discussed). It has one of the best spam filters in the business. Over the last month I’ve been saving all my spams that google so neatly places in my junk email […]

I got some new music over the weekend. Yes: the Ultimate Yes, 35th Anniversary Collection The Psychedelic Furs: Greatest Hits Rush: Counterparts It was an 80’s nostalgic weekend for me. -Dave P.S. – For some reason I can’t get the ending guitar riff from Yes’s Starship Troopers out of my head.  Good stuff.

Silent torture

Posted by: Dave In: Humor|TV

Those crazy Japanese games shows… This game show is set in a mock-library where the contestants can not make any loud noises.  The game is quite simple.  A random person is picked from the group via a card and something bad is done to them while the others watch on.  Nobody can make a sound. […]

Goth Day at Disneyland

Posted by: Dave In: Humor

The Fickr photoset is here and the Boing Boing article is here. My conclusion – goths have to wait in line just like everyone else. “This is my boyfriend, Nightraven and we’re in line to ride the spinning teacups.” Enjoy -Dave


  • Dave: Not sure, Bryan, but I'd love to know where Craig lives.
  • Bryan Hanks: What city were those in?

  • epiphenita: Like Tom Waits without the music.
  • epiphenita: Reminds me of my good friend's artwork: http://victoriacarlson.blogspot.com/2009/06/untitled.html
  • Dave: I think someone should make some dance music from those "WHOAHs."
  • epiphenita: Oh, Dave. That was tonic to my soul. Perfect. I vote for an exorcism.
  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)


Stepping over the steaming pile of reality. This is one man's journey into the absurd.
