A rum-pum-pum-pum

DCI has come to DVC. Speaking of nostalgia.....

Not that I was ever in Drum Corps International myself, but two women I've been involved with were either DCI veterans or had a vested interest in DCI (six degrees of DCI). Which could be seen as a little bit of a coincidence, since I'm willing to bet most of you have never even heard of DCI. So seeing DCI here in my new home state brought a sentimental little tear to my eye.

Know what I hate? I hate that the same version of IE on a Mac renders CSS very differently than on a PC. You'd think that W3C would be a *standard*, and not OS-dependent. But apparently SOME programmers think they're above the law.

Grumble grumble grumble.
Oh well...at least it's not Netscape. Though I'm happy to see that Mozilla 1.0 is *finally* W3C compliant for most CSS tags.

Wow....how very strange. We independently posted 2 minutes apart from eachother. Great minds think about posting on Jacob's blog alike.

"building a better mousetrap out of human hair."

so in the mummy returns 2, brenden frasier, when asked by his son what he should be doing says, "i don't know. go build a better mousetrap."

i fucking love that movie. not as much as i love giant crab though.

i'm lying. i love it more than giant crab.

So know what I liked even more about Brendan Frasier telling his son to build a better mousetrap? The next time we see his son, we also see a brief shot of an elaborate contraption that he's building. The little darling....he thinks he can invent something!

Umm.... Thanks to the great new comment feature, I've helped to come to pass, we can now all know that Michele likes The Mummy II more , thats right more , than giant crab.

Some people feel they need to accomplish acts of art of social change in their life. I think I can die now that I've enabled comments.

I think comments are kinda like those people who, during a 3 minute news cast on location will stand in the background of the reporter and wave at the camera for the whole 3 minutes. Are we this desperate to be seen?

Posted by: Gene on July 8, 2002 06:50 PM

*OR*, it could be that comments are just a nice way to shoot the shit with people in the background when you're not going to conference call everyone on the phone. I'm not posting comments for people to read and digest....that's what (some of) the blog entries are for. I'm posting comments to talk to people. So rather than comments being the people waving and making faces at the camera, maybe it's more like the crowd talking amongst themselves just outside the shot.

Hell, if I wanted to be seen I'd troll /.
