Howdy friends and neighbors and all the boys overseas,
Got a big new story outta of the deepest, depths of Africa with all kinds of exciting footage
for you to give the once over. I had to dodge gunfire to bring this story to you but I know
you're worth it (You are, aren't you?) Check it, boys and girls and then e-mail me and tell
me I'm crazy to risk my life and limb just for the sake of Internet entertainment.
Lot's of stuff to get to in this rant so let's get right down to it.
MOTHER IN LAW MADNESS CONTINUES
I got an e-mail from that
with the mysterious disc whose portrait I ran a coupla rants back. She was a little
upset at being called a hoax
by Bluesman and swears up and down that there is no tom-foolery going on in that picture what so
ever. She says that it was taken "somewhere in California" (well gee, that narrows it down)
and is also challenging us to find out where it was.
Meanwhile in the discussion boards, Jeremy has this to say about our mysterious disc
"That piece of art work resides in downtown Charlotte, NC. You would just have to see this
massive bronze disk. I just don't think that this thing could be duplicated. The disk shown
in the picture is exactly like the one in downtown charlotte. It is also the same disk shown
in the movie hellraiser...I now am interested, so if anyone knows more than I do about the
subject then enlighten me."
Anybody else got any ideas? If anyone lives in Charlotte and can take a picture of the disc
that Jeremy is talking about I'd love to post it on the site.
And if anyone can find out where it is in California that the one in the picture is suppose
to be from I'll send ya a free t-shirt. And yes, I need picture proof (ya think getting
a free shirt is that easy?)
SPRING SHOE MANIA KNOWS NO BOUNDS! (pun intended)
After being made the laughing stock of the internet with my latest stab at inventing spring
shoes, I got a great e-mail from John who pointed my server over to Z coil footwear and their amazing jumping sneakers.. Of course they're in
Korea so I may need to brush up on my Asian language skills (read brushing up as "learning Korean")
DangerXpac found some
spring shoes on Ebay
for me and if anyone out there bids against me I'll never forgive you.
CHUPACABRA DANCES WITH HAMSTERS, FILM AT 11!
Zazel e-mailed me this picture with the text: "It's worse than we thought"
At least it wasn't those damn
HOW TO DRESS A DEMON
Those freaks over at In Search Of
thought they could bribe me into mentioning their website by inviting me on their set and letting me
watch while they filmed scenes for their opening credits..and they were right. While I was there they
were filming a short piece with a demon... pretty cool stuff huh?
I also made 'em cough up 2 t-shirts with their logo. I'm keeping one but the second one is up
for grabs to the first person that can answer this question:
How long has David Baker been working in his field?
(hint: the answer is on the In Search Of website)
First one to e-mail me with the answer gets the shirt. It's an XL (that's all they had)
OVER AND OUT
That's it. I'm almost finished moving all my stuff over to the new home but there's still
a few more things I gotta go grab. Talk to you guys soon.
