Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas whoever you are and whatever you believe … or whatever you are and whoever you believe … or something like that.

All the best to you and yours … and if you see other people … all the best to him and his, her and hers, and them and theirs.

I’ve got me and mine covered.


note: I can never get tired of singing Jingle Bells Batman Smells.

double note: I’d wish everyone a Happy New Year, but I don’t have my new calendar yet … and I’m not sure exactly when it will be next year.

triple note: don’t worry about me … I’ll be knee deep in turkey, stuffing/dressing and cranberry sauce before all you in North America have even gone to bed with visions of sugar plums dancing on your heads.

quadruple note: now I have to go cry while watching “Its a Wonderful Life” for the billionth time.  It ain’t Christmas without Mr. Gower smacking George’s bad ear.

quintuple note: I’m not really going anywhere … I’m just clicking the mouse a few times and sitting right here to watch it.

sextuple note: Japanese kids think it’s funny that I always got a few mikan/mandarin/Chinese oranges in the bottom of my stocking as a kid.

septuple note: Wow is “It’s a Wonderful Life” really 63 years old? It seems like it was just 43 years old the last time. 
I may have to hunt down the ghost of Alister Sims too tonight or tomorrow. He’ll be waiting for my visit I’m sure.

Great aunts and uncles, grandparents, and even your parents are like those chocolate Cadbury Easter eggs; they are around for a limited time only. Enjoy them while they last.

The Saga Ends


note: it must be tough being typecast.

double note: at least he’s not bothering us on infomercials.

triple note: R2 Detour.

You don’t go to Jedi College when you get older … but you’re good at using The Force when opening pickle jars and stuff.

Some Days

Geiger Counter tops are hot!


Some days I think I’m radioactive because …

it feels like I’m living a half-life.


note: a candle that burns twice as bright burns half as long, so a candle that burns twice as dim must burn twice as long … but why bother?

double note: an unlit candle lasts the longest but it’s kind of useless without a match.

triple note: when I think about images of loving life and wanting to squeeze out everyday of it … I think of Rutger Hauer as Roy Batty jamming that nail into his hand in Blade Runner.

You never have a cool hair style.

Cardboard Display People

I took this photo in a hurry when no one was around.


It would almost be worth it to work at a movie theatre for the cardboard display stuff you could get for free.


note: the “cardboard cut out charity” needs your support.

double note: yes, I’ve seen “The Lonely Guy“.

triple note: planetross wants this cardboard display bad. I think after November 3rd it could be gracing my front entrance!

quadruple note: this is Nozomi Ohashi, the little girl who sings the theme song for “Ponyo“. I think everyone in Japan knows it. It’s quite catchy actually … like the flu!

Your brothers and sisters are going to call you “Walter” when you get the mumps. They will probably stop calling you that if you don’t get so mad about it.
… same goes for “Eggward“.

The Video: Really Bad Things

 Here is a little video Kelly Pettit  and I made.
It’s a mixture of the “Really Bad Things” series with a bunch of new ones thrown in too!



 note: a very very very very special “thank you” to Kelly Pettit  who did all the work on this one: director, producer, cinematographer, sound engineer, and most especially editor. I really couldn’t have done this with out his expertise in things I know nothing about.
He also carried half the pool table around with me looking silly for a few hours.
Kelly rocks!!!!

double note: I should have smiled more in this video.

triple note: Really Bad Things, More Really Bad Things, and Still More Really Bad Things are still being bad.

When you are 9 years old do not do Morris’ paper route for him. He’s not going to pay you; and him and his dad are douche b … oh! … you don’t know those words yet! … they are jerks.

Good Moody

Street Dance festival in Kanazawa city


Do you ever wake up in the morning and just know that it will be a great big enjoyable day?

No matter what happens, your mood can’t be budged, bullied, or bothered.

Today isn’t one of those days …

but I was kind of hoping.


note: At the beginning of “A Hard Day’s Night” when John Lennon laughs at Ringo and George falling down … that’s how I feel on really good days.

double note: I’ve updated a few of the experiments, added a page at the top, and started something different at the bottom of posts.

 triple note: most days I feel like George and Ringo.

In Grade 4 when you make a deal with Peter to run over the “50 yard dash” finish line together so you can both get 1st place ribbons,  don’t do it. It’s a double cross!

Sara n’ Mic (the chicken just shit on the book)

 I think the chicken just shit on the book


Sara: How are the Harry Potter books?

Mic: The main character doesn’t live up to his name, but the Potions teacher is awesome!


Mic: I think the chicken just shit on the book.

Sara: Don’t worry. There is a book cover on it.


The complete adventures of Sara n’ Mic: how did you get up there?,  why are the gnomes outside?why are we here?, what time is it?, the phone’s ringing,  who’s winning?  ,  what a great cast!what’s this game about? ,  what’s your friend’s name? and what are you doing down there?  are still collecting dust.

Looking On A Less Than Darker Side

It will kick your ass ... in a while



note:  it’s $50 to fix … and imagination is free … so I’m going with the latter.

double note: I wish my side mirror would break so I wouldn’t have to look at it though.

triple note: looking back while driving forward is like reviewing stuff from a different angle. 

quadruple note: “I’ve been there! I know what I saw!”



Transformer Men seem popular in Thailand


note: I’m going to slam on my brakes and then we will see who is laughing!

double note:  it must be nice to blow a tire and keep on driving semi– normally.

triple note: more posts to come: keep watching those skies!!

I’ll Be Bark!

I'll be bark!


The Terminator has a dog?
How unbelievable is that?

That’s just so phoney!

Everyone knows the Terminator loves cats!


note: it must be a SkyeNet Terrier

double note: I had to research that first “note“. Do I win a prize?

triple note: I was interviewed by Prairie Flounder  over at
Sky Fishing. If you’re interested … or not … check out his cool blog

quadruple note: the interview link is the “interested” one.
