Tav hijacked my news aggregator! His XML feed included a redirect (commented out, below) to his new site. Hmmm... I see possibilities here. Muahahahaha!

ok, i put in a redirect:

it's been fun exploring radio and the blogging community.

Libertarian Samizdata: "I suppose it would be extravagantly churlish of me not to mention the transformation of Olympic events from taxpayer boondoggle to corporate sponsor-fest which, at least, has put a stop to the bankrupting of cities in which the spandex-circus was unfortunate enough to land. In those days they were not so much athletes as locusts in lycra, devastating a whole landscape before buggering off and leaving behind grand white-elephant stadia like monuments of a long lost race."

Let the whining begin... (No permalink, scroll down to 'Salt Lake Pity')  9:34:49 PM  permalink   Add a comment

A picture named whatcolor.jpgThis will probably seem like an odd request to those of you with normal color vision, but can someone please tell me what color this is? Click here to send an email to the editor of this weblog.

What the??? I somehow went and made the Daypop Top 40 with this little bit of tomfoolery. Special thanks to Jason for laughing his ass off.

I wonder if I've started a meme?  6:12:34 PM  permalink   Add a comment   

I'm taking a break from brushing my dog. If you think skinning a Radio blog is hard work, you should try grooming a Bouvier who got into something sticky. It took me 15 minutes to brush out the right half of her face. Now comes the left, and then the dreaded chin.

All this, so I can take her to the real groomer on Wednesday without being scolded.  5:40:21 PM  permalink   Add a comment

FanFiction.Net v3.0: "Home >> Books >> The Bible"

Weird. I've always though the fan fiction trend was a little bit strange, but Bible fan fiction? That's out there. In truth, I'd say the author's of most of these pieces aren't actually fans of the Bible based on the stories.  10:39:49 AM  permalink   Add a comment

Matt Vartan Steals META Tags: "It doesn't seem to have any rhyme or reason to it either. Not satisfied with describing his guestbook as being the home of the world's largest bookseller, Matt's sports page has a woefully misspelled Page Title describing comedy videos, plus a list of keywords from a games site (hints, cheats, help, walkthrough, etc.) with a few movie titles tacked onto the end in high caps. (Well, at least he's showing some creativity.) "  12:16:54 AM  permalink   Add a comment
