1986 is "vintage" now? What a chilling thought.

(That aside, it's an interesting site if you're into first-half-of-the-20th-century advertisements.)

A Halloween Tale

For those of you who aren't into the blood and gore of the holiday, here's an amusing little tale of eldritch plumbing. And tentacles:

Podcastle Episode 128: Something Wicked This Way Plumbs by Vylar Kaftan (Or just download the mpeg)

If you don't want to hear the host's introduction, start listening at 4:25. There's a link to the story in text form, too, but the narrator does some really entertaining voices.


(By the way, I highly recommend these folks for your short-story fantasy, sci-fi and/or horror listening enjoyment.)

This hurts the teaching part of my brain so of course I had to share:

Peanut Butter, the Atheist's Nightmare.

Adults believe this? Forget the origin of life, we need some physics lessons here!

But because I don't want to leave you in a bad mood, you can watch this oddly amusing rebuttal before you go. Also quite unscientific but at least it wasn't intended to be. (Let's hope!)

Oh gosh, does this thing still exist?

In any case, I'm back home at last.

... but severely out of the habit of checking livejournal so please do ask for my IM if you don't already have it.

Hello from DC, which actually feels warmer than LA. :)

Just FYI that I'm going to be on the east coast (mostly NY and DC) until New Year's and won't be online much (or at strange hours). Happy holidays!

Your result for The Languages Test...

100% French! 100% German! 100% Italian! 100% Spanish! 100% English!

Look at the percentages above. The higher those percentages the higher your basic knowledge of those languages. Getting higher than %0% on any of these languages is great - it means you got at least 3/5 of the questions for that language correct!



Huh. Considering I am only conversationally competent in two (and a half, if you count high-school French) of those languages, I'm not quite sure what qualifies as "basic knowledge." But it was a fun quiz.

Quickie note - my LA photos site has change servers. It's now over here. (It may also be changing names one of these days; I haven't decided yet.) I'll be dumping new photos on it sporadically for the rest of the month, and then fleeing to Mexico. ;)

I'm slightly disappointed at my science/math score, but it's probably because I haven't seen an integral in a decade.

Ben and I are both back in our respective states. :( However, I still have Albuquerque photos! These were all taken at the University of New Mexico. (You can start here if you've already seen the Sandia Peak ones.)
