Eye Heart The Residents

Time Keeps On Slippin'

I declare today a day to eat leftover Mexican food and read old Star Wars comic books.

First up, chicken enchiladas, and 'Dark Empire'.  Probably followed by chips'n'salsa and 'Crimson Empire'.

Fanboy?  Perhaps.  ;)

Rockin' With Legends

Just got a postcard from beautycorrosion and m3ch, from Vienna, which was way cool...especially since they made a point of telling me they tossed the horns at Falco's grave...sweeeeet.

And, just to add a bit of humour to the day, I managed to reduce my Dad to tears of laughter.  He called, and asked how things were.  I told him they were fine but that it was "hot as the devil's rectum" here...I don't think he was prepared for that one.  ;)

Apparently, there was a bit of a mishap on the set of the new 'Willy Wonka' film. Seems a camera wasn't secured properly, and fell into a 3-foot-deep vat of synthetic chocolate.  The cost of the day's mishap?  £500,000 (the camera alone was £300,000, plus everyone standing around idle).

Too bad they aren't taking this as a sign and abandoning the flick.  I know, I know, I'm in a minority, and everyone else thinks it's a great idea to have Johnny Depp star in this remake.  But I don't...and anyone who's reasons for thinking it IS a good idea are anything along the lines of "but Depp is SO attractive" will be summarily ignored.

Relationships Gone Severely Bad

A drunken Filipino farmer nailed his wife's mouth shut and beat her to death in front of their children, then prepared breakfast for her the next day without realising he had killed her.  I dunno about you, but if I was so drunk I couldn't remember MURDERING my wife, I'm not sure I'd have the strength to hold her down and nail her mouth closed.

A man hit his girlfriend with a 3-foot alligator and threw beer bottles at her during an argument in the couple's mobile home.  How 'Florida Redneck' can you get?!?
