Are you familiar with the the Streamy Awards? Me neither. Chris Hardwick and Vanilla Ice are going all in on the award show that features the best in online video. Dick Clark Productions and Tubefilter have a hand in the production. I’ll probably pass.
Boy, I know it is Friday night, but I really got to talk to a shrink! Good thing there is Pretty Padded Room. You never heard of it? Sheesh, the mission statement: Pretty Padded Room is a platform that lets you connect with trained therapists online to release stress easier and faster. And since it’s virtual therapy, our doors are open anytime and anywhere.
And they offer private on-line sessions: Re-think traditional therapy and enjoy a little “me-time” with a therapist who comes to you, in your own space and on your own time.
Are you interested in whether your phone number is listed? I am and found the reverse phone lookup from the White Pages to be useful.
I am not listed, but my cell number resolved to a general address in San Diego. But no more identifying information about me.
You gotta be careful. I’ve been trying to get this pic of me yawning in uniform off the web for years. . .
Title of a real LA Times article: Murder plot allegation against fifth-graders stuns Washington town. Not much I can add to the mess, but good news: At a community meeting Wednesday night, Mike Cashion said one parent expressed gratitude that because of the alertness of the Fort Colville Elementary School staff, the gathering was a forum and not a funeral.
With all the gun-control rantings going on around the country, it was invariable that assault weapons would invade eBay. And here is an item claiming to be the original:
Here we have THE ORIGINAL assault weapon. Since the dawn of time, men have used clubs to assault others. They are also very important in self defense situations where someone is attempting to assault you with their weapon.
Don’t be a victim any longer. In the old days you would have to go into the woods and find a stick that is suitable for your self defense weapon. NOT ANYMORE! Here we have a modernized version of a club finely crafted by the folks at Louisville Slugger.
Hand Salute: Kurt at a Trainwreck in Maxwell
Imagine if Facebook thought you were dead. And they turned your normally jolly Facebook page into a memorial page. That is precisely what occurred to Rusty Foster. His friends pranked him and emailed Facebook an obituary of a guy named Rusty Foster. Except, of course, it was another Rusty. A far rustier one, born in 1924. Sheesh, I hope no NavyOnes die this week. . .
One hotel (motel, inn, auberge, dive, hostel, bed & breakfast, flophouse, barrack, tent, hut, house, apartment, condo, mansion, shack, walk-up, penthouse, time-share) that you will never find me checking into is called the Habbo Hotel. Not only is it Finnish in origin (from Finland), it entertained 250 million people last year. No thanks, ei kiitos!

If you are searching for info on the highly debated, heavily mysterious, Bicholim Conflict, know that it has been revealed as a hoax. So much for wikipedia being a truthful source.
You probably need to watch this anti-hypocrisy YouTube video, Demand A Plan – Demand Celebrities Go F*** Themselves, right now.
It features all the serious actors and actresses from the original post-Newtown video demanding that we do something about gun control. Except it shows clips of their violent movies. In frame after frame.
Whoever came up with it was a genius. Screw copyright laws. Let them – the celebrities, the production companies or the movie studios – sue. It will only get it more publicity.
TaskRabbit is a way you can get chores run by local folks looking for work. You have some small tasks that need doin’, but not enough to hire a personal assistant. So you post schtuff like this:
I got a new Tempurpedic mattress. It’s hard. I’d like someone to walk on it, in relatively clean socks, for two hours. Maybe jump up and down a little (jumping optional). It’s a King, so your walking area will be 76×80 (inches). Prefer someone with strong calves and some meat on their bones. Beer included, and you can pet my cats if you need a quick break.
This one’s closed already, a task rabbit by the name of Sarkis K bagged it. Do go read what the top task rabbits’ve done. Legends like Dan B, Margaret N, Cherry F, and Marc H.
