pancake mountain

Me so tired today. Two intense rugby practices this week, and I fell off the wagon and started playing CivIII again. Frikkin' frakkin' paper due this week and final next week for The Class That Absorbs All Space And Time. But it's almost over. Big fat annual report needs to be made at work too. Big tourney this weekend, and I'll be playing scrumhalf, which will be fun. Last night at least 4 people were giving me critique at the same time during play. Umm...I can barely hear one person, much less comprehend what yer saying while my head is shoved up someone else's ass - save it for after the play or practice even when I can absorb what you have to say.

A teammate had extra tickets to Margaret Cho tonight, so I am going. It should be fun, but I hope to not stay out too late as we have to get up early tomorrow to go to the tournament. I long for sleeping in Sunday morning, and I certainly will.

I had this long rant written about gentrification and racist double-standards here in DC, but I'm too tired to deal with the ever-contrary liberal heart knee-jerking back at what I have to say about it. I am cranky today. I'll save it for next week when I have good rest and willpower.

Pancake Mountain, a set of hip kid's clips made here in DC, looks pretty cool - if I had kids I'd get the discs, and it already looks like my nephew will be getting a copy.sheep puppet and Henry Rollins

Clips from the website include Henry talking to children on how you shouldn't put a bag on your head, puppet interview with George Clinton which asks, "Where do you park the Mothership?" and kids punking out with Shonen Knife.

If I had kids I'd get these discs...it's actually good music with a kid's theme. Including a punk rendition of an 'A-E-I-O-U' song.

This Saturday geeks do not miss Alien Planet, a documentary-story show about the colonization of a new planet, and the critters we meet there. 8pm, Discovery Channel.

Timothy Dalton to be Daddylicious in the May 16 TV movie on NBC, cut from its original four-hour presentation down to three hours, to be aired on a single night.

MMMMM Henry Rollins.
When I saw that pic today in the Express paper this morning I was all a giggle.


I would love to talk with you someday about gentrification and racist double standards. You might be suprised about my viewpoints.

In the mean time

MMMMMMMMM Henry Rollins :-)

Also, I need to get some kids.

I am SO over you going to see Margaret Cho. I love her like my luggage.

And I had my thoughts really well organized on your post too! I wasn't even going to knee jerk.

I saw "Pancake Mountain" advertised on TV a couple weeks ago, but I wasn't clearly paying attention. When my sister has kids (many years from now), I'll send her these.
