...what was playing on the radio?

Go to You Tube and plug in the year of your birth and see what pops up - [ profile] lasirenadolce got Elton John, I got Johnny Cash> and Ricky Nelson.

In black-and-white, no less.

And here's some more...

GOD, I'm old....

...but I was playing around a site on the Internets and got this:

Think I'll keep it... (although, I have to admit, it leaves a lot to be desired in the fuzziness department, and, well, a lot of other departments... But I've still got a lot to learn when it comes to stuff like this... )

...this is just too good to pass up. In case you missed it... that's *HOUSE*, right there, in the snappy white suit. Greg House.

He was NEVER that young.

Language is such a wonderful thing (particularly when the language is the infinitely malleable English. Here's a site that might amuse, entertain and educate those inclined to pay attention to the vagaries and idiosyncracies of the English tongue. I particularly like the "Sic!" section, which I presume is updated regularly with examples of unfortunate English "faux pas", so to speak, if you'll forgive my French, as it were. These are the current crop:

• “Found under my windscreen wiper”, wrote John Rooke, “was a flyer from a local (East London) watering hole that describes itself as a ‘GASTRO PUB W ORGANIC PRODUCTS’. It seems to have been printed from someone’s rough initial notes; featured alongside such attractions as ‘ORGANIC PIZZAS’ and ‘SUN BRUNCH W ROASTS & NEWSPAPERS’ are ‘BATTERED SOFAS’. A touch indigestible I’d say, though it is nice to be offered a sit-down meal.”

• In an article by Jennifer Ferguson about beers in the 6 September issue of Buzz Weekly, the student newspaper of the University of Illinois, appears this: “The ol’ factory system has a lot to do with taste.” Industrial-scale brewing, the curse of the zymurgy business. Thanks to Rick Larson for noting that.

• Donna M Farrell found a feature story in the Washington Post recently about the memorabilia of gay activist Frank Kameny going to the Smithsonian. It commented about his firing by the government in 1957: “He got busted in Lafayette Square across from the White House (a gay cruising ground).” “Who knew?” Ms Farrell marvelled. “And during the Eisenhower administration, no less!”

Missing or entirely superfluous punctuation! Dangling participles! Double meanings! Roll up, roll up, fun and games for all!

I try to steer clear of memery these days, but but this was kind of fun to do...
anghara: (coffee beans)
I think I'm going to print this out and hang it by the coffeemaker, to remind [ profile] rdeck of potential consequences...
anghara: (book and glasses)
And now for the season's new reality show... Survivor:The Writer...

Anyhow, after that, I'll up the stakes...The Science Fiction Flick Fashion Fission Parade...
