I distinctly remember back in like 1992 when I finally got my ole 386 25MHz box really humming, sorting out all the DOS 6.0 TCPIP stack issues and getting my newsreader, email, ftp, and I think even gopher client working smoothly, and I decided to start working with WinSock in Windows 2.0 and everything got fouled up again.

as you can on his blog, hosted on blogger. not safe for work, i suppose. in addition to being naked, donavan himself is quite the porn aficionado.
to think that anchorbutt might be mere nanometers away from the hard disk storage of 80's reference shill Donavan Freberg's vanity blog(s)... it makes you wonder.
oh, apparently there was somebody with an EverQuest character named something-something Anchorbutt in 2004. he was an elf. and a cleric.

When Spears talks about the South Asian musical influences on "In the Zone," she says she's "been into a lot of Indian spiritual religions." When asked if one of them is Hinduism, she says, "What's that? Is it like abbalah?"
Shakira, discussing her recent album "Oral Fixation, Vol. 2", in the New York Times, Sunday, Nov. 13, 2005:
"I've always felt that I've been a very oral person. It's my biggest source of pleasure. From a psychoanalytical point of view, we start discovering the world through our mouths in the very first stage of our lives, when we're just born. The first album cover is more Freudian, and the second one more resembles Jung, because Eve is a universal archetype. I tried to keep a unity between the two album covers, and I chose to use some Renaissance iconography. Mother and child and original sin are recurrent concepts of the Renaissance period, and I wanted the historical character."

Your wife decides to go out with her friends drinking and dancing....
You're okay with it, because you get to watch sports all night....
You hear her stumble into bed around 4 and laugh knowing she's going to have a monster hangover....
You wake up next morning and go outside to the family Volvo, which she used last night....
You sigh in relief because it's all in one piece....
You circle the car looking for dents and find none....but wait a minute.

Yeah, I realize the odds of you lot not having already read a 2002 Star Wars article from McSweeney's are nil. So spare me the nut violence, and so forth.
