Tom Lehrer is Smug

second life grabage: GOOGIE

I made a better sign for the 24-Hour Church of Starship tonight. It's all multi-leveled and Googie and shit.

And yes, the "24-hour" oval rotates. Of course. If I have some more patience I'll give the ball on top plastic spikes.

(no subject)

Before I went off and had my little SL building spree last night, Goodrich showed me the first three episodes of Spaced, the British comedy with more clever pop culture references than you can shake a lightsaber at. Very nicely produced; you can easily tell how Shaun of the Dead was borne from this braintrust. Oh, for a region-free DVD player! I rarely feel personally marginalized by the giant media conglomerates and the copyrights they vigorously enforce, but I sure don't dig it when The Powers That Be say "No, no, you can't watch this import, little boy, unless we decide to release it!" and then... not release it.

Ah well. The nefarious criminal downloading things one is forced to do...

spatch's gip & plug! in disguise!

Migosh I have no idea who that guy in the icon picture is but he sure looks stately. and sedated! But it may be a hint that a certain Shakespearean comedy is going up in less than a week, and we'd love it ever so much if you were in the area and attended one, or all, of the hilarious performances.

This is a brief description of how work has been for me today:

(two hours' worth of blessed blissful silence)
FIRE!! PUT IT OUT!!
FIRE!! PUT IT OUT!!
FIRE!! PUT IT OUT!!
FIRE!! PUT IT OUT!!
FIRE!! PUT IT OUT!!
(lunch, deedle deedle doot doot)
FIRE!! PUT IT OUT!!
FI-- wait, no fire? No fire at all? None? I can breathe? PheFIRE!! PUT IT OUT!!

Disclaimer: I am not a firefighter. Well at least I don't drive a truck and have a Dalmatian and hum the theme to Backdraft while doing so. Not today, anyway.

Thank you. Enjoy the buffet. I'm here all week.
