About this blog

I am not a random, non-sensical lunatic, and my blog is not full of inane rants and ravings. What's so great about that stuff anyway?

house chicken & stuff

well, Mme. Dot, its a typical chicken, you know the sort, named Marie Jolie. she's sick with crop impaction, which is pretty much when they eat so much food so fast that their digestive system almost shuts down. yes, theyre brilliant animals. so you have to feed the chicken very little, force it to drink alot, and keep it walking around so it will get its bowels moving. now, the weather is not cold outside, its just perfect, and there is a perfect spot for Marie Jolie to stay until she gets bett

a bird in a gilded cage

i wanted to share this old vaudeville song with anyone who wants to read it: The ballroom was filled with fashion's throng, It shone with a thousand lights; And there was a woman who passed along, The fairest of all the sights. A girl to her lover then softly sighed, "There's riches at her command." "But she married for wealth, not for love," he cried! "Though she lives in a mansion grand." "She's only a bird in a gilded cage, A beautiful sight to see. You may think she's h

John Barleycorn

'John Barleycorn Must Die' is one of my favorite songs. dig the lyrics, second version, best played by Traffic, in my opinion. There were three men come out of the west, their fortunes for to try. And these three men made a solemn vow: John Barleycorn must die. They plowed, they sowed, they harrowed him in, threw clods upon his head, And these three men made a solemn vow: John Barleycorn was dead. Then they let him lie for a very long time 'til the rains from heav'n did fall, And lit

revised band list

in april i made an entry that was a list of my favorite bands. well, my tastes have changed alot since that time (for instance, im tired of country music, zydeco, and alot of my previously favorite rock bands) so today i started out with a mission: make a new, revised and improved list of my favorite bands. but i kept narrowing down and narrowing down the old, way-too-lengthy list until i ended up with just this: Peter, Paul and Mary (Folk) John Denver (Folk/Country/Pop) James Taylor (Folk

pointlessness

you know what? chimpanzees can learn to recognize their reflection in mirrors, but monkeys cannot. and something else; in about twenty-seven days, an average human has had all the skin cells on his/her face replaced. i wonder why i stay on this forum. i have lots of fun here, its my all-time favorite site on the internet. i dont really have any friends here. there are alot of people that are very nice to me when they dont have to be, im friendly with alot of people, but i dont really have

Medieval Bestiary

This is a writing project i felt like trying. i might add more later. First, let me tell a little about what a bestiary is. In the medieval ages, the Catholic Church had outlawed the owning of a Bible or any other religious book by any one not part of the clergy, with the exceptions of breviaries, the book of Psalms, and bestiaries. Bestiaries were short, magazine-like publications, full of brief descriptions of a real or imaginary animal’s appearance and habits. These little descriptions w

planning my life - #2

okay, so ive though about it and have come to a conclusion. my parents have been saving for college for me, and i'm going to be able to get A LOT of scholarships. so ive decided it would be smart to go to college after highschool, and utilize the opportunity; and maybe i'll figure out what i want to do after a couple years. thats what my parents were suggesting anyway (see that? i'm listening to my parents. at least in part), just taking general courses until i get a better idea. who knows, i mi

hats and dinosaur colors

you know whats sad? that nobody wears hats anymore. the age of the hats is gone. if you watch an older television show, especially one from the fifties, youll notice that everybody wore hats back then. all the men had hats, all the women had hats, even all the kids wore hats. nobody even went out their house without some kind of hat on. now, the only hats being worn are baseball caps, straw hats (usually worn only by little old ladies working in their flower beds) and those stupid floppy-brim fe

crazy=cool?

why is being crazy cool? you see all the blogs with descriptions like 'nothing but the inane banter of a crazy person' or 'things i like to rant poinlessly about' or 'this probably wont make any sense to anybody' and such. why does everybody seem set on pretending theyre insane? is it really that cool to be crazy? why do all my fellow teenagers incessantly remind everybody that they are 'the craziest person ever' and 'just off the edge of insanity' and 'going insane' and such? normally, i would

Beauty - (theory)

i will start this thread off with a reflection on beauty. i have a theory on what humans find beautiful, but i shall get to it in a second. these days, the ideally beautiful woman is very thin. have you ever looked at the Mona Lisa? in the time that was painted, she was the idea of a perfect beauty. but if youve ever really looked at her, you would see that, by today's standards, she's kind of chubby to be a ravishing beauty. see that lady? thats Ruth Ke'elikolani. she was once considere

Snoop-dog, Socrates, Tull & death to computers

my entry to-day is somewhat shallow and definantely not thought provoking. bare with me. Socrates said, "The wise are doubtful." that is so true. if anybody reading that happens to think it would make a good profile quote or something, have at it. i respect George Foreman. hes not just a famous, rich black man; hes a famous, rich, black, SMART man. he has invested smart. unlike most of these damn famous people, he came out with more money in the end than he had in the beginning and still wit

cheese, crackers, and skeptics

a couple folks have asked me to join in with the skeptics club. but, im not sure i want to, or if i would go in there. first of all, im not entirely sure i qualify. i believe in voodoo, ley lines (up to a point), mental vibrations, and life on other planets (not UFO's or aliens as in greys, but life. animals and bacteria, you know). and thats about all in the Unexplained. but, while i am very skeptical towards the unexplained, i think i more than qualify as a believer in God and religion and suc

Ransom Note

Im sure youve heard any text thats hard to read (usually because it's got sticky caps or too much text effects) described as being like a ransom note. well, i got it into my little mind to make an ACTUAL ransom note.

UM social shifts and rubber chickens

M. Falco said that, and its got me thinking. thats not the only big shift going on on UM right now. does it seem to anybody else that the younger members are being accepted more and more into the forum? lately i see us being truly listened to, and recognized, and most of all, stepping outside of our age group and talking and being talked to, in ways that we havent been doing in a long time. i got a rubber chicken today. it was supposed to be a christmas present, but it came in the mail late. it

((( lyrics box ))) - its got lyrics. to songs. LOTS of them. old ones that are hard to find, too.

half empty half full / horrible

just in case you dont know, there is this old saying, much like the 'which came first, the chicken or the egg?' saying, that says 'is a cup half empty, or half full?'. well, this is my idea on it: if the cup was completely empty, and its got water up to its middle mark but its still being filled, then its HALF FULL. because its in the process of being filled. if the cup was completely full, and its got water up to its middle mark but is being emptied, then its HALF EMPTY. because its in

Fields have Turned Brown

my favorite song of all time. I left my old home to travel this country My mother and dad said "son, don't go wrong" Remember that God will always watch oe'r you And we'll always be waiting for you here at home. "Son don't go astray" - thats they both told me Remember that love for God can be found But now they're both gone - this letter just told me For years they've been dead; the fields have turned brown For many long years I've rambled in sorrow No thoughts of the day whe

Giraffes / Full-Gosple / Great-Good / Thingies

I apologize, but this is one of those completely pointless, totally thoughtless, just plain dumb entries. I don’t blame you for ignoring it, im half ignoring it myself. I wonder if giraffes realize how goofy they look. Although, goofy is probably a purely human concept. I went to a Full-Gosple Church yesterday. now, im a catholic, so as you can imagine, this was quite an experience. at the end of the mass (wait, protestants dont call it mass, do they?) or service, or whatever, the priest (w

facts of interest

heres some neat facts off the top of my head. some of them i read today: when you put your hands over your ears, you know that low rumbling noise you hear? thats the muscle cells in your arms and hands tightening and relaxing themselves. it has been clinically prooven that underarm hair significantly reduces friction from moving one's arms. Minmi, a small armored dinosaur from Australia, is has the shortest name among dinosaurs. when you put a shell over your ear, you know that splash

it just happens today is your lucky day, Mme. Dot (and all you other folks who are surely dying for a genuine recipe instead of that redneck stuff)!

adieu and thanks

well, im going to be leaving internet forums all together for a while, this one included. its really a bad time what with the blog just started and all that, but i plan on coming back eventually. i just wanted to say a few words of thanks before leaving to everybody, for tolerating my garbage and listening when you did, but a few good folks especially, in no particular order: Cheat - (cheat was my buddy for M.

You can if you think you can

usually, i really hate those sappy, feel-good "you can if you think you can" type stories (i mean, REALLY), but i have one to relate that is 100% real and can fill up a blog entry very nicely indeed. first, let me introduce the cast. i was going to change their names to protect their identities, but i decided i didnt need to, mainly since theyre all chickens: Attila the Hun - a Sumatra, among the very top of the pecking order, big, strong, mean, a real lady's man, and he gets anything he wants

next fad

i read a neat artical in some magazine. it was about 'fad hunters'. fad hunters are people hired by big clothing companies to figure out what is going to be the next fad, and of course the idea is to figure it out BEFORE it gets popular. they interview folks that are agreed to be cool, like famous singers and movie stars and such, and observe sale trends in clothes and music and such; they dont decide what will be cool next, they just get cool folks to help them figure it out. right now, the
