Sweet Home Alabamski

Without further ado, the Finnish band the Leningrad Cowboys with back up from the Russian Red Army Choir!



Empire Ice Cream's first press of the year!

We're to be in their July issue too.
The stock image of the cones was not my idea- we don't even HAVE cones.
It might as well been a picture of anything else....


Finding Satchmo'

Well, I found proof the Satchmo' exists:
He's so intelligent that he was able to delete pictures of himself of the trail- camera of my friends, and figured out a way to only leave pics of us on it!  That sneaky snake!

We were up in the remote foothills, following elk trails, sustaining ourselves on miner's lettuce and fiddlehead ferns.  In other words: eating things that taste like dirt.
It was nice to be out there, but it was cold (unseasonably, actually for those in other countries, i.e. SNOW).  Lots of elk around, supposedly there's a herd of over 200 living in those parts.

I went down to Oly after these adventures, and built some boxes with my dad for tasting ice cream out of at the markets.  They have a removable wire mesh tray to keep the ice cream off the dry ice directly.  Obviously, you can tell which one I made, and which one he made.  (But mine was done in 1/3 of the time!)



I'm going sasquatch hunting this saturday.  Seriously.  I've been invited.

Check out this site! I don't play!

Apophis Asteroid

This is why old people aren't always right. A 13 year old German boy has proven NASA made the wrong calculations. Those dumb rocket scientists!

"The shockwaves from that would create huge tsunami waves, destroying both coastlines and inland areas, whilst creating a thick cloud of dust that would darken the skies indefinitely." Yeah!

BTW, Apophis was the main bad guy in Stargate: SG-1 seasons 1-4.
What a bunch of nerds at NASA!.....er...yeah, nevermind.



The Worst Foods In America

Are ironically, from a steakhouse with an Aussie theme.
The description:  "This weapon of mass construction is the caloric equivalent of eating 14 Krispy Kreme doughnuts, before your dinner arrives. Even if you split this "starter" with 3 friends, you'll have downed a meal's worth of calories."

Ahh, America!
This is part of Men's Health Mags "No-Diet Weight Loss SOLUTION."
The solutions involve eating a Big Mac instead of a Whopper.  WTF?


I knew Wal-Mart was messed up...

...when I read this article. Apparently, the bosses are dressing up in drag, and being recorded.

Actually, I knew it was a messed up place before that. On my roadtrip, I stopped at Wal-Mart to get some camp fuel, and other low-priced items. (This was in Kingman, Arizona).
There was a (modeled after the NYC version) shirt that proclaimed, "I Jesus!
They use 5 times the plastic bags that one really needs. I'd hate to strain myself on that gallon of 2%!
I looked at all the shoppers, and I realized that they're literally all fat and ugly.

And I'm an accepting person.



A nice blog post about how Hillary Clinton claims Memphis to be the NCAA Champions.  Even though they lost.

Thanks to Paul.



Shhh......I'm hunting for a Wii.  Those are elusive buggers!


3 things.

A couple un-related things:
-baseball season has started, which I love. The Mariners are going to be good to playoffs this year I think. They just need to sign Barry Bonds to fill the DH spot. Then we'll be solid.
-NCAA Tournament. I watched the semis last night, which were the 1st games I've really sat and watched this year. Memphis vs Kansas is going to be a good one I think, since they're 2 big and fast teams. There should be some awesome play. I couldn't believe that UK got up on North Carolina by 28 just over 1/2 way in the first half. I've never seen anything like it. UNC then came back as close as 4, then blew it again, and lost by 20.
-I went Paintballing for the 1st time. Had a blast, even though I got tagged a couple times. It was way out in the sticks of Duvall, and so we were in the forest, in the mud, and in the paint. I'm going again for sure.

Don't know what I'm doing today though....


Amazing Alligators!

Amazing! That's the only way to describe this photo gallery of my trip!

The little Alligator was our camp mascot. He can also grow 10x his normal size if you leave him in water, as well as melt on Angie's dash if he hangs out in the desert.
starting to get too into the Flight of the Conchords BBC radio documentaries....
