The Great Mofo Delurk 2007

It's De-Lurking Day!

Some blogger I admire/enjoy (here's one) (wow, look, here's another!) have been bemoaning the recent drop in blog comments, and so they have organized The Great MoFo Delurk, based on the idea that there are too many mo-fo's lurkin' around the blogosphere, not commenting, no linking, just kinda creepily...lurking.

So cut it out!

While I enjoy the privacy here - there's a meditative quality to writing a blog that you know practically no one reads - I'm curious to see who's reading.

Maybe I'll even, you know, WRITE SOMETHING for you to READ when you come here.

TV will tear us apart

That's Jeff Corwin.
Cable TV is just nuts. You're aware of that, right? Cable TV is completely full, day and night, of people - men - grabbing snakes with their completely bare hands and flinging them about with a relaxed, casual attitude that makes me shudder, shudder, shudder.

Mike Rowe (who I watched tonight, peeking through the cracks between my fingers, in an episode of Dirty Jobs titled Snake Researcher) AT LEAST HAS THE DECENCY to:

1. be anxious and grossed out at the prospect of catching water snakes, injecting something into them - I'm not too clear on this part, it appeared that they were inserting something into little snaky rectums - and the massaging their stomach contents out into a collection bag.
and also
2. to get bit! Badly! And to scream in pain when he did! And to panic and drop the snake!

It's really the least he could do.

And, unbeliveably,again! This one's just audio - I was moving around a lot, the video might have gotten messed up. The file's actually a Mitchell-Henning portmanteau - the first half is Zach Sandberg interviewing Moses via sattellite (played by Eric, on video), and then the second half is my 'sermon', which involved tying people together with pink yarn (Manos de Uruguay, for any of you who are yarn fanciers. Second service I used rainbow-colored Sugar and Cream crafters cotton. It went faster, and I collected the ridiculous tangle at the end and draped it over the base of the cross.)
