You know you’re old when you finally – after hours of searching – find the old CBS station bumper music and it takes you back to the early/mid 70’s.  And you think of Bill Bixby in The Incredible Hulk (Friday nights) and how James Garner in The Rockford Files (Saturday nights, I think) was pretty darned entertaining and all that…

To a kid that sound was kind of mournful/spooky.


Cruel Wife passed on this link.  It’s what I need.  Like burning.

In order to convince you to run over there and buy a dozen of them, here is the appetizer.

Yes, it sure does look like I’m going commercial, doesn’t it?

Last ones for a few days.  I really enjoyed making both of these.

A Crabby-Sushi T-shirt.  (Inspired by a very good friend of mine.)

A Rad Shark T-shirt.  (Inspired by another very good friend of mine.)

General store stuff…

Note:  The store is in a bit of disarray… Zazzle doesn’t update rapidly at times.

Eco-Dollars, inspired by C. Monster (cbullitt).   The $1T bill, featuring a unicorn, which we need to preserve for the UN’s continued importance as well as Mytho-Diversity.  Coffee mug only, right now.

Coelacanth Ecodollars – $1 Million Coffee mug only, right now.

Leatherback Ecodollars – $10,000 Coffee mug only, right now.

Also there will be two shirt designs going up tomorrow, as yet unpublished or seen by the unsuspecting public.

I’ve been throwing words out there fairly fast and I need to take a break from writing for a day or so.

Steamboat McGoo has been advertising my “Know your roach” t-shirts and found Joe Sixpack and Susie Homemaker on the street at large at least get a good laugh. And if that is as far as it went, I’d be happy.  Getting someone to laugh these days, or even smile… is a big deal.

But there’s another idea that has been around for some time – The Dude and I were part of something great years ago.  It was the birth/formulation of the idea that since cockroaches are near to lobster on the evolutionary chart (h/t to Alton Brown) why not use cockroach meat to make faux lobster?

Thus was born Mocktails™, Cock-Tails™, or TerraLobster™.  Different people have different ideas for the best name.

This is your chance to throw in your opinion for the name of such a product.

Here’s the poll for the day:

Wiccapundit and Aggie were the straws that crushed the camel’s back.  I’ve been not-doing anything for so long that… well, I started to think about the House quote that Aggie was asking about last night:

Hope is for Sissies.

In the context it was uttered, it meant if you avoid risk and just whine about life, holding out hope that something might be true and never having the guts to try, you’re a sissy.

So I’m throwing art up on Zazzle and seeing if Wiccapundit was right:

Can I really make tens of dollars?

So as Mel Brooks said:

Merchandising!  It’s all about MERCHANDISING!!!

(just to see if anyone is paying attention)

****This morning’s now-outdated posting****

A.  Magnificent. Pagan. God.

At least so says Wiccapundit.

Wp says that I should put some stuff on Zazzle, Aggie is saying this other place I can’t remember, and several folks have said they wanted this or that.

So… the big question goes out – who wants what put up and I’ll give it a shot.

Wiccapundit says I could make tens of dollars.  Like, wow!  Now I’ll be able to afford my kid’s allowance.

Know what I want more?  I want Cruel Wife to get home with my pain meds.  She picked them up last night for me and has them somewhere.

Update:  She is on her way home, with them in her purse.  Groovy.

  1. Damn I’m sick of this neck thing.
  2. Thank God.
  3. Ow.

Happy VD.

That is Happy Valentine’s Day to you.  Not “Happy Sexually Transmitted Disease”.

Here is a Shameless Plug for Weasel – isn’t that a great card?  It’s what I got for Cruel Wife – you can add your own text inside, too.

I like Weasel’s Zazzle stuff.  Even got CW a coffee mug wtih “Death from Above Kittehs” on it.


Daily Mail (dot co dot UK):

Interviewed by the highly sympathetic BBC, which still insists on describing the leaked emails as ‘stolen’, Professor Jones has conceded that he ‘did not do a thorough job’ of keeping track of his own records.

His colleagues recall that his office was ‘often surrounded by jumbled piles of papers’.

Even more strikingly, he also sounds much less ebullient about the basic theory, admitting that there is little difference between global warming rates in the Nineties and in two previous periods since 1860 and accepting that from 1995 to now there has been no statistically significant warming.

The admissions will be seized on by sceptics as fresh evidence that there are serious flaws at the heart of the science of climate change and the orthodoxy that recent rises in temperature are largely man-made.

That kind of wording is loaded.  It implies that we “sceptics” have little argument to go on and are waiting for tidbits of value doled out by the dogmatic AGW proponents.  That there, my friends, is biased writing at it’s best – stealthy unless you stop and read it more closely.


While over at cb’s place (Soylent Green) viewing his shameless pimping of some of my stuff among other stuffs, a randomly generated similar hits list had this topic “shameless self-promotion, humility, and blogging“.

Why do I blog?  Good question.  Let me count the ways…

  1. I’m a narcissistic person
  2. I meet new people, and very interesting people at that
  3. I read other’s interesting thoughts
  4. I’m a narcissistic person
  5. I’m opinionated
  6. Every now and then I have something to contribute
  7. I have NO humility (not that this is a requisite to be a blogger, whether you have it or not)


Cruel Wife sent me this, saying “I’m interested in going”.  Well, gosh darn it, so am I.  Probably drag the whole family along and about six geeked-out co-workers.

The World Steam Expo.   I mean, gee-whiz, it’s only in Dearborne.  I bet we could convince iamfelix to go, too – especially since we missed meeting up for the local Tea Party when it came through.  (If you decide to go ‘felix, I’ll buy the coney dogs and onion-rings)
