Brady Bunch Weirdness Of The Day

brady_bunch.jpg  This site–using the power of YouTube–will amuse you.

  Warning: There’s a lot going on here, animation-wise, and my own computer kept choking and gasping.  Your mileage may differ.

  Also, it’s hard to get that danged song out of your head the rest of the day…

Free Music Book–Download It!

Category: Books,Music — jerry @ 6:09 am

digitalmusic.jpg   I have purchased and read to previous Michael Dean “how-to” books: “$30 Music School” and “$30 Film School” and felt that they were each $30 well-spent.

   He has just written another book on do-it-yourself computer music, but apparently had issues with cowriters and his publisher along the way and has decided to make it available for free download here.

Go for it!

How To Escape From Plastic Handcuffs

Category: Technology — jerry @ 6:09 am

I hate it when I get arrested and the cops put those plastic handcuffs on. Don’t you? Here’s a demonstration of how to get out if you’re, like, um, a magician. Okay?

Another fun thing to do is to learn to wiggle your I’m-21-so-I-can-drink plastic wristbands off (by distracting the cute gal who is putting them on as you enter the sports arena, and meanwhile clenching your fist to make it larger), and reinsert it on your 9-year-old so that he can get your beers all night. Always a great gag.

You’re welcome.

Category: Opinion — jerry @ 6:07 am



  Please write to the people at this website and ask them to make this t-shirt available again (last time I checked it was sold out).

   Then please chip in and get it for me.

   Meanwhile, our threat level remains “orange”.  (!!!!!!)

   Be afraid!  Be very afraid!!

What I Want For Christmas

Dear Blog Fans:  Please feel free to chip in and get me one of these things.  It’s only $90 or so from here, and it really looks cool.  It connects to a lot of things (Computers, PDAs, cell phones) and projects a keyboard onto a flat surface via laser)


Off To England

   I’ll be gone for about a week, but I’ll have posts up every day that I’m gone from items I have been saving over the last little while. 

   With the stock market down like it is, I’ve decided to flee the country to avoid my creditors.  (Joke…)

   Actually, I suspect I’ll have some brand new creditors after this next week.  Things are expensive over there!

Stock Pick–July 26, 2007

Category: Money & Investments — jerry @ 9:50 am

Pettit_Funds_Logo   Well, I’m reeling a bit from the beating taken the last couple of days in the market, but…time to get back on the horse.

   I’ve made a little money in the steel industry in the past, so I’m going with Grupo Simec S.A.B. de C.V. (SIM).   It’s a bit larger company than my usual picks, but a little extra diversification will be good for me. 

Good luck!

Oh, Dear! Lindsay In Jail!!

lindsay.jpg   And here’s this morning’s mug shot, courtesy of The Smoking Gun site.

   Allegedly, she was chasing another car at a high rate of speed, got pulled over, couldn’t find her nose with her finger, and–Oh yeah, officer: about that cocaine in her pants pocket.  (Probably didn’t have trouble finding her nose for that…)

   I’m just crushed.  She was so good in FREAKY FRIDAY!
