It disturbs me...

KING KONG!

A high res of good ol' King Kong

Do you think...

...this jibes with your world? Doesn't this mean there would be a new famous person in your life every day (on average)?

Rubylith

If you had 9 square feet of this, what would you do with it?

People can do some kickass things w/ Blender. Of course, I can't...

Photos of the Gorillaz playing live at WOXY

It's good to see them getting out.

I could watch this all day

"I had some spare time so I recently joined PETA. My first assignment was to save a small antelope in Africa, and the rescue was filmed to critique my effort. Let me know what you think."

You're a million ways to be cruel.

And one of them is to make me watch these dudes dance.

Tune in Tonight

Don't forget to tune in to Dial-A-Dork tonight, 9pm 1300AM if you're in Cleveland or on the web at the icecast location. Or, listen tomorrow by download.

This just in...

russ belongs to more bizarre niche groups then anyone else, notably the one of eight people (currently) in the continental US who knows who Serge Gainsbourg is, and the one of 12 people that saw Naked in New York in the theater. The previous holder of this dubious distinction was our own Ryan Leaf, who owns a jumpsuit, but not a pacemaker

All ye fear

the ass kicking pilgrim!

Film Reco

I recently grabbed Primer off of Pay-Per-View (incidentally, DirecTivo + PPV = no more trips to the video store, as you can record your movie choice and watch it later, all for $3.99, which might be double a rental but there really are no late fees -- as I can testify because I've had Ray downloaded since ferrevah and still haven't watched it).

Interesting little movie, I believe it just came out on DVD. See if you can get your hands on it. It's a sci-fi time travel reality play in a very ordinary current day setting. It is somewhat-to-fairly confusing. And it's pretty watchable, for a movie that cost seven Gs to make.

Since I'm one of...

about eight people (currently) in the continental US who knows who Serge Gainsbourg is, I offer this wacky clip of him making a bumbling pass at Whitney Houston.

O, I wanna dance with some-body.

Osama Bin Laden really Wooly Willy?

Stallone to play Kofno in Anchorbutt movie

You may have already noticed Sylvester Stallone's pattern of playing characters with names of the pattern consonant, vowel, consonant, consonant, vowel. This makes him eligible to play Kofno in the Anchorbutt movie.

Ralph Macchio to play Russ.

The Bjork Song

By the Brunching Shuttlecocks.

Signs of Strength and Frailty

This is fairly humorous

Mario is a hero in the classic archetypal style. Bowser is clearly Mario's estranged father, against whom Mario must struggle for his own atonement, in order that he may eventually transcend his father's greatness and embark upon the apotheosis to godhood. Since we’re dealing with classic archetypes, wherein only the males are worth a damn, the Princess clearly should have known better than to go out into the world with a vagina unprotected by a husband. Her folly distracts Mario from his true goal of sitting around all day, eating magic mushrooms, and having sex with Toad.

I'll never get tired of watching this parallel parking video.

If this passes, it is going to be almost impossible to live in Ohio

Leave my freedoms alone you damn dirty moral nazis.

Anyone that can guess...

...the GIS that I used to turn up this, I will give you $20. Seriously.

I browse too much

Interesting post by Chris Anderson about the various niche "tribes" on the web, and the memes that develop.

I'm not sure what it says about me, but I knew about every single fad he mentioned.

Time to upgrade your Photoshop

if only for this cool easter egg!



As ArsTechnica put it, "Monkieeeeeeees Iiiiiiiin Spaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace......".

Imaginary money to the first person who knows what that quote is a reference too.

I like the idea of this one though I'll need an iPod to go with it.

Mütter Museum

Seems like a lot of our readers are from Philadelphia. That makes me remember the time I went to visit the Mütter Museum and sent back the post card of the guy's colon who couldn't poo.

Administrivia

The skyrocketing readership and frequency of postings on Anchorbutt has prompted me to make some tweaks to the page layout.



Here is a summary of the changes:


  • bumped the number of posts from 32 to 64 so that they don't fall off the bottom as fast
  • removed the "previous posts" section from the side bar, since that's pointless
  • switched the archive frequency from monthly to weekly


Not that anybody probably cares.

Also, if you're one of the roughly one-third of the readers who is hitting the site with Internet Explorer, be cool and upgrade to Firefox.



BTW, if you like the graphs in this post, you can find more of them by clicking the "site meter" button down at the bottom of this page.

Check us out on BlogShares.

Ok, readers...

...how did you find us? Tell us in the comments.

I'm going to feel really sad if the answers are all "so-and-so poster told me to read it."

And cause I'm supposed to, here's something dumb to catch your interest:

Whoa, we have a reader.

Shoutout to Pencopal. (We are the "via" link.)

It's been a pot-o-gold kind of day

Separated at birth?

The jumpsuited one observes a tabbish similarity between the Power Panther site and the site of a certain software company.

Scavenger hunt! Who can find other such tabs on a web site? (No fair creating your own web site with colorful tabs just to score points.)

I opine that aloof != cool

If the only reason you're doing something is because everybody else does it, well that's pretty lame. But if the only reason you're not doing something is because everybody else does it, well, then that's lame too.

In other news, I was not really cognisant of the fact that Weird Science was a John Hughes movie. Weird. Another classic Bill Paxton role, tho.

Shameless cross-blogging about goats.

Product Review: Market Pantry Diet Cola

It's what I'm squeezing now.

I went to Target yesterday and picked up a 12-pack of store-brand diet cola for $1.99. Seemed like a good deal.



The can says "Save on every sip of soda. Each Market Pantry flavor delivers great taste for less". Geez, this stuff is awful. If "hardly anything" had a taste, it would be this, and if overcarbonation is a word, it applies to this soda!

DIY corpses

If that "Girls and Corpses" magazine caught your eye, here's how you can make corpse replicas from unwanted poultry. Don't know how you're going to make your own girls. Maybe someone else can blog that.



Yes, I know you already saw it on BoingBoing. Dag, yo. Blogging just isn't fun anymore, because by the time you get around to blogging something, it's already been on BoingBoing.

Everybody needs free stuff

Everyone should check out Freecycle. From the website: "The Freecycle Network™ is made up of many individual groups across the globe. It's a grassroots movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns. Each local group is run by a local volunteer moderator (them's good people). Membership is free. To sign up, find your community by clicking on the region on the right. It will generate an automatic e-mail which, when sent, will sign you up for your local group and send you a response with instructions on how it works. Or, go directly to the Web site for your local group by clicking on your community's link on the left. Can't find a group near you? You might want to consider starting one (click on "Start a Group" for instructions). Have fun!"

I got a lawnmower from the ClevelandFreecylce group and regularly see lots of useful stuff for offer.

You!

Atom / Blogger observation

I'm not very Atom savvy, and I am not certain how blogger constructs its feed, but all of the content entries are not formatted the same way. Content entered through the blogger interface shows up with the html escaped. Entries made from a third party interface, like the Firefox BlogThis plug-in show up with the html unescaped. This seems to impact how some feed aggregators interpret images.

Super-awesome internet radio

WOXY used to be a Cincinnati FM station, but now it is internet-only. I've been listening to it for a couple of days . . . I haven't heard any drivel yet, and have heard from quite a few off-the-beaten path artists that I like. Robyn Hitchcock is playing right now.

You've got to be pulling my...
