message of the whenever
over two years now since last i wrote something and it's plain to see that i'm not going to be doing that any time soon. but don't rule out the idea, hey? although i have no desire to write anything new right now, i do have a hankering to update and expand my alan partridge node. you know, if you like, you can have a look at my 'moblog' at bulletproofbra.buzznet.com. mmmm, it's really quite boring.
due to a lack of actual input, i lost my ability to bestow a C! on write-ups and was teased with needing to write just. one. thing. to raise a level and gain them back. so i put peter serafinowicz in the database and was told i still need just. one. more. write-up to ching in peace again. grr.

no three-disc hi-fi anymore (broke) so, the last three albums i bought.
Going from chill-out dance to a bit of a metal renaissance...
- lostprophets: start something
- funeral for a friend : casually dressed and deep in conversation
- damien rice: o (not metal but still beautifully sublime)
mp3's come and go around these parts and a full list of them
gets too long and too difficult to update quickly and easily, so the five
most recent tunes i'm enjoying via the intertext webway:
- lostprophets: shinobi vs. dragon ninja (love the title. and it rocks)
- strong bad: everybody to the limit (www.homestarrunner.com is pure genius)
- dr. dre: fuck wit dre day (and everybody's celebratin') (catchy title)
- eric cartman: sailing away (i still love south park)
- placebo: evalia (apparently on some version of sleeping with ghosts. but not mine)
don't you go being afraid to recommend stuff. thanks to whoever
advised me check out dar williams, your name escapes me. sorry, hon.

dear departed write-ups
i came across the node with the lyrics for the will smith song and wrote this pretty much as i thought of it. a smidge of sideways thinking which, to be honest, I still think is really funny. even if it is just me that thinks that. fe. you have to make your own amusement in this sick ol' world. i'm telling ya, breasts on men will be next. :)
Getting Jiggy With It (final rep: 6)
This one time, at McDonald's, I had a blazing row with the manager. I said that they could take their Chicken McTikka Burger because it's all for nothing if I don't get jiggy wid it. But she refused to offer me any, flat out, she just. plain. refused. She said that you only get sachets of jiggy wid McChicken Nuggets and them was the rules. So I left, not before telling her in no uncertain terms that I was going to march my hiney to Burger King instead. You get jiggy wid everything there.
(sigh) Sometimes franchised restaurant chains can really piss me off.
Guess what? Breasts on Men was next.
Breasts on Men (final rep: 6)
We asked a number of breasts for their thoughts on men but they all declined to comment on the issue. A very disappointing survey, given the huge popularity of the last one: "Men on Breasts".
TWAJS. Etc. But I still support the idea of men getting breast implants if they want them. It comes down to my belief that if you like tits that much, get your own. Guys, seriously, cosmetic surgery has made great leap and bounds over the years, don't rely on others to provide you with boobs, get a pair of your own. You *know* you want to...
heart or question mark? answers on a postcard.
You read all of this? I don't believe you.
/msg CtW Yes, I read your entire homenode. What? It wasn't *that* much! It was great, though. :)
the bookmarks now follow, all of which, sooner or later, find their
way up to the node-a-matic above. what follows are the nodes, (ideas)
mainly, that i thought were damn good. so there.
