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)

Dumb Celebrity Quotes

Anyone can say something stupid every once in a while, of course. But the celebrities featured on this website sure seem to make a habit of it. Only one quote per customer but they probably make up the usual suspects in the dumb quote hall of shame. Go »

A Christmas Story for Christmas

Definitely early for Christmas, but there's an interesting item for auction on ebay that closes in a week or so. Spend Christmas Eve and morning in the house used to film A Christmas Story. I suppose there could be other events to make it a Christmas Con like a movie viewing, a shoot your eye out contest, and stick your tongue to the frozen pole game. Go »

At about the halfway mark between Halloween and Christmas, I ran across this gift idea suitable for both holidays. Zombie lawn sculpture. Dave Barry included this in his annual gift guide and I found the original source for it. Go »
