Oh, so that's how it's going to be, then? I tell you a tale of physical woe inflicted upon my person in the past six hours, and then follow-up with a website featuring kick-ass pop culture covers? Do I have nothing else to write about?
I guess not.
Well then, by all means, let's begin. It's not winter until I slip on a patch of ice and hurt m'self, and now I am proud to say IT'S WINTER! HOORAY!! LET'S ALL GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY, ONLY YOU GO AHEAD WHILE I STAY INSIDE WITH A BUM KNEE, OKAY? This year I was done in by a rogue patch of ice masquerading as a puddle of water. There was water on top, I swear. But below, there was nothing but pain. Left foot hits it, I slide forward, grab vainly at a snowbank for non-existent support, and DOWN GOES
FRAZIER SPATCHEL! DOWN GOES FRAZIER SPATCHEL!
Ended up dragging my right knee along the concrete behind the puddle, ripping it up right nicely and putting a hole in my jeans. Plus my hand was cold because it plunged into the snowbank. Excellent. This terrific episode was also marked with a splitting migraine, as I woke up from last night's acid fluxfest feeling extremely hungover. That's the Insult to Injury hangover, really, because I didn't even get the luxury of a night of heavy drinking beforehand. Dammit. Damn you stomach. Looks like it's time to start the Prilosec again.
Oh, ok, enough bitching, here's the other cover song site that's great. It's the Hill Valley Preservation Society which may or may not still exist, and I'm leaning towards the "may not" given the Cosell twins gloom-n-doom on their intro page. But their music lives on with downloadable goodness, and they really got their chops down something fierce. Their Price is Right medley is amazing, and the entirety of their "Erased... From Existence" EP is very well done. Bonus points for a driving 3... 2... 1... Contact! cover as well.
And so to celebrate I got a new avatar. Oh, Kate Monday, how we loved you.

Oh my God, is that from Mathnet?
You got any shots of Mathman?

And by "from Mathnet," of course I mean, "from Mathnet, which was on Square One." Just to clarify.

Yes, it's from Mathnet. Used to watch that all the time.
"To Cogitate and to Solve"
The story you are about to see is a fib. But it's short. The names are made up, but the problems are real.
Oh... Cristobal Franco... I so wanted to be him when i grew up. Yay Square One!
Dun da dun, dun da dun da dun!

If you are taking prescription medication, have you tried Prevacid? It's been my lifesaver.

You keep having fun like that and you're liable to find yourself at Mt. Auburn! Mind you, the nurses are really lovely and you might enjoy yourself, but it's a helluva way to get there.
I wouldn't mind a lovely nurse or five. Besides, I hear they got some really good painkillers.
(so good to see you back!)

Somewhere, on an archive of one of my PCs, I think I still have an entire Mathnet plot line.

Oh the Prilosec!
You really can't quit it. It's addictive. Your body gets used to its helping hand and after a few weeks off the stuff the Acid of Doom will have your tum and your soul for lunch. It's so expensive but it truly does make the prospect of a cup of coffee or a plate of 'sketti far less terrifing.
Hooray for the OTC Revolution!
