Where the ladies at? I can rarely remember who is a lady-woman and who is a gentle-man here. I mean I'm usually pretty sure, but then when it comes time to post I am suddenly filled with panic and self doubt, and end up with akwark gender avoiding constructions (like here). So anyway, can we get, like, blue homme and little pink femme and little.. I dunno, green other/unspecified icons beside user names? Read more...

My Dad would occassionally come downstairs in the morning wearing shirt, tie, suit jacket, socks, shoes, carrying a brief case and wearing hideous plaid boxer shorts- no pants.

Gonna Fly Now! Pips says that when she hears this song coming through the speakers, she knows she's gonna wander into my room and find me shadowboxing or running in place. I admit it, it gets me pumped. It probably has to do with being part Italian-American, and the son of a big boxing fan (The amazing film Ring Of Fire has a similar effect for the same reason). But the scene where he runs up the steps, and after the fight when he calls out for "Adrian!!" always has me a bit verklempt. I know Stallone has been more or less a total tool since, but he won my heart with this movie. I'm sure you have your corny favorites, too, so I pay tribute to mine.

the Washington "Freedom Walk" Did anyone read any good detailed articles about it? I figured someone would feel the need to FPP about it after the event, but apparently not. Was it as strange as it seemed like it would be? Was the media exclusion really that successful? Pro or Con, whatever, I just want to read more about it and know what happened.

MeFi's downtime Apologies if this has been explained in detail before: could someone explain to this non-technical user why MeFi is down with such frequency? I've done some front-end web design freelance work for friends, but that's the extent of it. It's the server-end of things that I confess almost total ignorance. What is it about MeFi's particular architecture which makes it so unreliable? What would improve it? I don't mean it so much as a gripe then I do a genuine technical curiousity. Of all the sites I hit on a daily basis, MeFi seems to be down twice as much as any of them. Why is this not true of other sites?

Declaration of Revocation "The 2.15% of you who are aware that there is a world outside your borders may have noticed that no one else plays "American" football. You will no longer be allowed to play it, and should instead play proper football.
Initially, it would be best if you played with the girls. It is a difficult game. Those of you brave enough will, in time, be allowed to play rugby (which is similar to American "football", but does not involve stopping for a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full kevlar body armour like nancies)."

John Gruber presents The iTunes 5 Announcement From the Perspective of an Anthropomorphized Brushed Metal User Interface Theme
Apparently, Lying is Free Speech Too An appeals court in Washington State (US-Centric, sorry) has ruled that a state law "prohibiting political candidates from lying about their opponents is an unconstitutional violation of free speech" partly because the law also allows candidates to "proclaim falsehoods about themselves". Meanwhile, the Delaware Supreme Court heard arguments this week in a case in which they will decide whether an ISP must disclose the ID of an anonymous blog-commenter whose kindergarten-level invective against a local politician sparked said politician to sue for defamation.

So. How much of a jerk can one properly be?
Rockville, Maryland public school teacher urges "predicts" the shooting of liberal traitors "...A[n Al-Quada] WMD attack must be coordinated and launched against two distinct targets, preferably East and West (Left) Coast cities. A nuke or two, even if low yield, will devastate America. A Hobbesian 'war of all against all' will emerge as the criminal, opportunistic, and seditious elements strike out. Expect heavily armed and infuriated conservatives to launch a cleansing war against the traitors. The armed will mow down the mostly unarmed segments, especially those elements that devoted forty-plus years to anti-American hatred to destroy this country." [via Daily Kos]

Also, Mr. Lopez-Calderon details his "irreversible break with the Left".
Shitty video and a worse codec (VHS -> WMV) And a despicable decade. But it's some interesting John McLaughlin and great guitar playing. Feel free to add links. He is a new musician to me, and I like what I see. :-)
The ghost village of Imber It's not easy to find the "ghost village" of Imber. On maps its location is a great big blank space, and it doesn't appear on any road signs. You only know you're in the right area when you spot a single "Tank Crossing" sign about a mile south of West Lavington, and glance across to the unassuming little single-track road bearing the notice of whether the roads through the village are open or not. "Not" is nearly always the answer - Imber's only open to public access on a handful of days every year.

Skype Prank. "A profile is put up with a girl's name and picture, and put in "Skype me" mode. Within minutes some seedy guy will invariably try chatting, and there's a little program I made which will partner up people 2 at a time, and send messages from the first person to the second, & vice versa. This way both people think they're talking to a girl, when they find out, well, they're not normally too happy about it..."
