So, as you may or may not know, Allen has been playing his music with Richard, Nathan, and Gil. They have their first gig next Friday (November 30) at a benefit for Toys For Tots at the Texan.  It is my understanding, they are supposed to go on around 11 p.m.  He is nervous because he hasn’t done this in a while but, I know they are going to get up there and rock it.  I will try to get pictures for you of the event.

Understanding the World Around You Wednesday, November 21, 2007

Recently, I tried to speak to certain people about climate change.  I feel like it is an important issue people need to, at the least, acknowledge.  However, these people blew me off and tried to turn the conversation into a political bitch session on Gore, ignoring the issue of global warming all together.  So, what now?  I am going to put a link on here.  I REALLY hope the people I tried to have the conversation with will hit that link and, hopefully, read the information.  It comes from “The Royal Society, the national academy of science of the UK and the Commonwealth, is at the cutting edge of scientific progress. It supports many top young scientists, engineers and technologists.  It influences science policy, it debates scientific issues with the public and much more. It is an independent, charitable body which derives its authoritative status from its 1400 Fellows and Foreign Members.”  Besides climate change, there are a lot of really great topics on there.  So, check it out.  It NEVER hurts to learn about the world around you.

Sunny days!The earliest episodes of “Sesame Street” are available on digital video! Break out some Keebler products, fire up the DVD player and prepare for the exquisite pleasure-pain of top-shelf nostalgia.  Just don’t bring the children. According to an earnest warning on Volumes 1 and 2, “Sesame Street: Old School” is adults-only: “These early ‘Sesame Street’ episodes are intended for grown-ups, and may not suit the needs of today’s preschool child.”

Say what?

Hey guys!  I have been changing up the website a little bit.  I am not completely finished with it but I am happy with what I have done so far.  You can check it out at midaswhale.com.

I may not have loaded the page correctly.  Give me a couple of days to figure it out and then, try again.

I saw this box and it made me chuckle.  I’m not real sure what they are and, honestly, do not care to find out.  My imagination will not accept the reality.  Poor female robots being attacked by some serial killer robot who sells their parts on the black market.  What a waste.  It is a sad thing what some robots will do for money nowadays.
