Rather than clog the TC Board with things that mostly interest me exclusively, this seemed a more appropriate avenue. I'll probably post something nearly every day as I'm online daily just surfin' & lookin' for weird stuff. For example, how else would I have ever known of these products if I hadn't seen them using "strange" in a search string? What did I do before the net? Bugged the shit out of my wife with crap in the newspaper. Now it's with crap I find on the net. Now it's your turn.

Steve, I really appreciate all the contributions you've made lately, and I hope to keep reading more strange links from you. However, if you're doing it to get more R$, and there's nothing wrong with it if you are, that's probably going to go away shortly.

Cool! Thanks for saving me the trouble of surfing to find more from the world of the BizarreNetBazaar, Steve!!!

Been meaning to be more contributive and the R$ was what finally pushed me over the edge, so to speak. But removing that won't keep me from this blog. I meant what I said about sharing maybe a link a day and not crowding TC. It's fun for me to share the weird crap I encounter. Will truthfully be sad about the R$'s going away for it though.

Yeah, me too... and in no small part because some otherwise really quiet folks have been a bit more active, too (Denise!) -- it isn't *all* about the money! (Just mostly... ;-D)

Brenda and I went to closing for our new house today. Everything went smoothly and an hour and a half later I left with the keys in my pocket. We're moving this weekend so I'll be a little scarce here. Go »

Christmas Post #12: Sorry About That Chief

I've always been a fan of Get Smart! and the funniest running gag for me was the use of the "cone of silence". This thing called a "pentaphone isolation space" brought that immediately to mind. Go »

Love Letter and Goodbye

I had a very strange thing happen to me this morning. Overnight, I had a dream that featured my ex-wife, Betsy. I told Brenda about it and wondered what the image of Betsy represented in my subconscious that made me wake with such a clear image of her. Go »

Christmas Post # 18: It's The Force, Not An Empty Box

My brother is a collector of sorts. He has various bits of Civil War memorabilia, Washington Redskins gear, and science fiction flotsam from Star Trek and Star Wars. If these toys actually existed, he'd be one of the first in line. Go »
