This One's Not Gonna Mean Much to Anyone but Steely Dan Fans...However...

If you, like me, are a freak about "The Dan", go check out The Steely Dan Dictionary, it'll clear up a lot of questions you may have regarding some of the more arcane lyrical references on their albums. Tell 'em Jimmy sent ya.

It's the little things like this I love about the net....the fact that you can just type "Steely Dan Lyrics and their Meanings" into Google and BLAM! - you find yourself looking at a page like this, where a like-minded person has actually gone to the trouble to archive things of this nature - be it obscure Steely references or minutiae about Green Acres, the codes you need to activate your televisions remote control, pretty much anything. Gotta love it - I'm just waiting for that wonderful day when I can have some kind of cable jacked directly into the back of my head so I'm on it 24/7 and can escape reality altogether...ahhh :)

Some Funny News Stories....

Just thought I'd toss a few out there, there are so many weird ones, last few days (most of these were lifted from Fark:

You know me, I'm a sucker for these pages with oddball paper airplane designs, so here's yet another one, entitled Exotic Paper Aircraft.

My Potato Gun Kicks Your Potato Gun's Ass

This guy's taken it to the next level potato gun-wise - a pure oxygen and propane-fueled, laser-sighted, bolt action, automatic spud launcher that would make even the most avid fan of the classic geek project green with envy.

Greetings from Your M.I.A. Webmaster

Hi folks, just wanted to pop in here a minute and let you know that I haven't quit blogging on you, just been having some pretty bad computer problems of late and so I've devoted the last few days to the herculean task of burning and organizing all of my extremely disorganized data. I shall return ASAP, however - give me a couple days and things should be back to normal.

If Hackers Ruled the Earth

A particularly funny Photoshop contest at Worth1000.

McCartney Trots Out Beatles Leftover

Carnival of Light, a track recorded during the Sgt. Pepper recording sessions, will be seeing the light of day for the first time since 1967, when it was played at an avante garde festival. It wasn't included on the Pepper album and by the sound of the article I expect it to be an inaccessible mishmash of LSD-fueled meanderings - it's Beatles news, though and as such I thought it important enough to mention.
