WUSA UFO Open 1987

The UFO Open is back!

Speechless. . .

I don't know which is more sad; The post itself, alleging Ratatouille is a misogynistic attack on female chefs, or the ensuing debate in the comments where too many people allege Brad Bird is an Objectivist dick.

The Jeffersons Moving On Up remixed by Mercedes Benz 2

Another commercial using a different stanza from the song.

The Jeffersons Moving On Up remixed by Mercedes Benz

I like this hip hop version of the old theme from The Jeffersons "Moving on Up". The commercials are for Mercedes Benz, and according to comments on YouTube, performed by Cheri Dennis.

Rememberance of Courage Past...

I mentioned Courage the Cowardly Dog several posts/months back. In particular, the episode, Remembrance of Courage Past which was -- if I'm not mistaken -- the last episode of the show (paired with Perfect) , both shown and planned as such. In Remembrance, we learn through flashback the tragic story of how Courage came to be an orphaned dog, to be found and saved by Muriel. I mention it now, as for the time being, Cartoon Network has provided a direct link to the video.

(And I shall also try to embed a video player here, and see what happens.)

Except that is the incorrect video.
Looks like YouTube to the rescue again. . .

Can't access the new Blogger...

Interestingly, it says that one of my blogs cannot be moved... the FAQ wasn't helpful as it was too vague to provide any actual information. My guess is that Aaron Barnhart's old TVBarn blog (which used to be powered by Blogger, before it got incorporated into the main Kansas City Star's website, and the main blogging backend managed by SixApart's Typepad service) is the blog of mine that is preventing my account from being migrated. (As it is the only blog that has a "lot of entries", which the FAQ lists as a possible reason for my account being unmovable.) However, it isn't my blog, I just have posting access, and it's been abandoned long ago (even before the blog migrated to Well, no matter...

Well, it looks like Six Apart is down...

That means two of my main weblogs are down with it -- Sterling Ambivalence and Sterling Ambivalence's The Occasional Blargh are down with it (In addition to a lot of blogs on a lot of commercial and personal sites that I read -- since Six Apart bills itself as a professional blogging service).

Oddly enough, this page is not meant to be read by anyone other than me -- it was mostly a dumping ground to interesting links (now being posted to my Delicious account), or instructions on how to get my computer up and running later. OK, this blog got a boost of activity when I discovered YouTube, and I discovered that LJ didn't completely support YouTube. Of course that ended quickly once LJ started supported inline video fully.

But I'm back here posting again, since 6A is dead for the time being (I can only guess that James Baker's call to officially end the war has actually caused the pundit horde of blogger hot-air to actually suffocate the 6A servers). I guess what this means is I should do more to integrate this site and publicize this page to people on from my LJ sites in the event 6A goes down.

Anyway, for some reason, I decided to open this blog to comments, and believe it or not, people have actually commented. I have yet to check to see if they're mostly spam or not, but if not, I'm beyond surprised. I did get one interesting comment from another blogger on Blogger to whom I left a message praising a post he wrote (subject: Wonder Woman). See, even though I don't post much here, I do use this Blogger account to post comments on a few other blogs. Interestingly enough, he managed to track me down not only to comment back, but to remark on a comment I wrote on another BlogSpot subdomain on which I squat (which is where I post even less polished thoughts than I do here).

I guess this is a rather roundabout way to say I probably should update the biography pages (Blogger, LiveJournal, Vox) of the blogs I write so I can at least direct people to where I write more.

And as I complete this post, SixApart is back up...

Link to the Fedora Core 6 Guide...

...because I continue to try to use Linux, when lesser (or perhaps saner) mortals would give up and go with Windows or OS X.

Begging for Money.

I added a donate button to the left side of this weblog. Why? Apparently all blogs must have tip jars. Even those never updated...
