I suppose it could be worse. I'm not sure HOW, but it could be worse.

You are: A Hippie

You scored 54 Wisdom, 52 Tactics, 50 Guts, and 27 Ruthlessness!

You know nothing about tactics or war. You are docile and cowardly and the mere thought of violence is enough to make you wet yourself. Hate to break it to you, but chances are very good that you're not General material.... not even BAD General material. Hell you're probably not even a productive member of society. Why are you even here? Don't you have a peace pipe to smoke, or a war to protest or something? So here's to you and to whatever naive country that lets you vote....

Leaders who share your beliefs include: Jaques Chirac, Vladimir Putin and Gerard Schroeder

Which Historic General Are You?

The Best Little A-Team Sound Page on The Internet

The A-Team theme sung in French!

Hilarious exchanges between Mr. T and Hulk Hogan!

Mark Shea is right, this is funny (though it runs a bit too long).
Y'all be sure to check out Mark Shea's new podcast, Rock Hard!. It's definitely worth the time.

And I'm not going to say ONE WORD about that theme music. Except that, maybe, here's hoping that if everything goes well, they'll be able to upgrade from the free version of Acid.

Because it's been a while...

Dr. Goldberg: As ridiculous as it sounds, it's called Dr. Goldberg because the following Dr. Pepper rip-offs are as ridiculous as it.
So I saw the new Revolution controller today (well, pictures of it anyway, since I don't live in Tokyo) and even with all the things that are going on in the world, I plotzed.

This truly has the power to change everything, as far as gaming is concerned. I admit, it's not going to appeal to anyone (read: the hardcore gamer) but while all you noobs are playing your Splinter Cell 8, I'll be playing some freakishly weird and innovative Nintendo game with my wife.

"Oregon is bad,
Stop it if you can.
Here it comes,
here it comes.

Now it's after you,
Flee to someplace new.
Run away,
Run away."

Okay, I'll confess to wanting this. It'd go nice next to my Sledge Hammer: Season 1 DVD set.

"Hey, Hurricane Katrina Survivors! Who needs food, medicine, water, shelter, or clothing when you've got 'emergency contraceptives'?"

Of course if Planned Barrenhood really wanted to help female hurricane survivors they would have handed out .38 Specials and rape whistles at the N.O. Convention Center.

Ever notice...

...that the same things that make your teeth white will make your eyes burn?

My sister went to World Youth Day and all I got was...

...some pretty cool stuff, actually. A St. Michael medal blessed by the Pope and a cool bavarian pipe. Check out her photos here.

September is International Piano Improv. Month

I so declare it. And what is more welcome than a nine-minute piano improv? I made this with the Virtual Piano from Art Vista. It's encoded in .ogg format (smaller - around 6MB - file size and it's still listenable) so get thee over to and download the best media player on the planet, if you don't already have something that can play .ogg files.

I still don't have my 88-key, weighted, hammer-action keyboard controller yet, but I think I do all right with my old 61-key Roland Groovesynth.

Fats Domino and Allen Toussaint both missing in N.O.

Please pray for them and everyone else caught up in this awful, horrible situation.
