Skate Or Die!

Monday, March 24th, 2008

What a cool video game. I liked the music. I remember there was an episode of that old show “Doug” where he was watching some show religiously about a skateboarding hero who could fly off the edge of a mountain and be totally fine because his skateboard had wings. So Doug went nuts and decided he needed to get himself one of those boards at all costs. He saved and saved and saved…

I recently surfed over to, where they have a huge selection of boards, pads, and general skating equipment. Great prices, quick shipping. Tons and tons of brands, especially Sector 9. The Sector 9 skateboards look pretty neat.

I’m thinking has a huge enough selection that any Doug fanatic could probably engineer their own version of the Hero Skateboard, wings and all, with a glint of light shining at all times, even in the dark. A board so powerful that it almost floats up off the ground while at rest.

Gleam the Cube!

Finally! Nigeria owns up to their problems and decides to provide a solution. I can't wait to spend my $500,000. I'll probably use it for my mortgage. But since the value of the dollar is going down, maybe I'll just buy a candy bar instead. Hmm… But then I won't have any money left!

"Due to series of petition received from International Bodies on the way fraudsters around the world especially Nigerians … to all the people that have been scammed in any part of the world, the UNITED NATIONS have agreed to compensate them with the sum of US $500,000.00."

I wonder just how many people have been scammed by other emails, and are now getting this one and thinking, "Finally! Satisfaction!"

It's like a television show. And we've just now moved on to Part II, where some of the fraudsters admit to previous wrongdoing as a means to promote their current wrongdoings.

O brave new world that has such people in it!

Grandfather Clocks – Kings Of Style

Monday, March 24th, 2008

Do you own a grandfather clock? I do. It’s neat. Functional and attractive. I remember hearing about a grandfather clock from a kids’ sci-fi story that had actual control over the flow of time. It was a cuckoo clock. So some kid climbs up on a chair and turns back a dial a few years. All of a sudden he’s three years younger! Crazy. I’ll bet someone who knew what they were doing could use that clock to wreak havoc with the stock market!

I was perusing and I learned something. Did you know there’s such a thing as a Grandmother clock? I never knew that! Anyway, I found a pretty cool grandfather clock, cool because I’ve never seen one quite like it, and it seems almost futuristic. It’s a Kieninger Montauk grandfather clock, and it looks pretty modern, pretty up to date. If I had one of those, I think I might put it near the kitchen. Next to the dinner table maybe? Or perhaps in the dining room…

One thing I enjoy about is that they have links to the sound each grandfather clock makes. That makes things so much easier!

I was reading their blog, and saw that clocks count in home design. That makes perfect sense, but I’d never really thought about it before. It does seem correct that certain clocks and grandfather clocks can really add a level of class and distinction to an otherwise ordinary room.

I never knew how huge a selection of clocks there is. I mean, at the site, even after getting specific and limiting the search to just grandfather clocks, you can still sort by maker. So getting even deeper into the world of clocks, selecting howard miller clocks, you’d expect there to be very few, right? But there are tons! And they all look great.

Someone with a decent budget could probably use this one site to build a replica of the opening scene of “Back to the Future.” Seriously.

Scraper Site Thinks It Knows My Name

Monday, March 24th, 2008

I wrote this post.

The scraper site generated this post.

Here is a selection:

"Josh E Armstrong wrote an interesting post today on [Blank] Here’s a quick excerpt…"

Who is Josh E Armstrong?

Does not this scraper know?

Has he not been made aware?

That my one, true name is…
