Make Love! The Bruce Campbell Way

On Wednesday, July 6th, Bruce Campbell, the star of such cult classics as The Evil Dead, Army of Darkness, and The Adventures of Brisco County Jr., will be in town signing his latest book Make Love! The Bruce Campbell Way before showing his new movie "Man with the Screaming Brain" at the River Oaks Theatre. I missed him when he was in town signing If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a "B" Movie Actor and I've regretted it ever since.

Bruce is talking and doing a Q&A at 6:00, with the signing around 6:40. "Man with the Screaming Brain" will then be shown at 10:00. More information can be found at the Murder by the Book signing page. Seating is limited for the speaking engagement, so I'm going to try and arrive around 5:00 or so.

If anyone is interested in going, e-mail me at kymberlie AT neuroticfishbowl.com so I can keep an eye out for you.

Like My Body?

I never watch award shows, those watching the American Music Awards last night got to see Anna Nicole Smith introduce rapper Kanye West smashed out of her gourd.

Luckily, thanks to the Internet, you can watch it here. Apparently she flubbed her lines because of bad eyesight not because she was drunk or on drugs. Yeah, I talk like that when I don't have my contacts in too.

And after a bottle of vodka.

Amazon.com Associates Change

If you're like me and have an Amazon.com Associates Account, you've probably done all your shopping through your own referral link. However, they've made a change to the rule that now you don't get credit for anything you buy through your own links. (I figured this out when I had almost $20 deducted from my account. Ouch!) Feel free, then, to shop though this link or through the Amazon.com search box located in the sidebar.

Just a little public service announcement from me to you.

The Heroic Century

My best friend Jeanna e-mailed me today to remind me that The Museum of Fine Arts Houston is having a new exhibit - The Heroic Century. Included in the exhibit will be Vincent van Gogh's The Starry Night, Claude Monet's Water Lilies, and Salvador Dali's The Persistence of Memory.

It's a hell of an opportunity to see many pieces that you'll never have the chance to see again, so if you live in Houston or are nearby, I would highly suggest making your attendance a high priority. The exhibit starts September 21st of this year and runs until January 4, 2004.

A Bear of a Different Color

Another great image from MSNBC's Week in Pictures!

Pelusa, a 14-year-old female polar bear, sticks her paw through the bars of her cage July 21 at the Mendoza Zoo, northwest of Buenos Aires. Normally white, Pelusa turned violet after veterinarians administered a medicine to treat her for a skin condition. Her veterinarians said her coat should turn normal again within a month.

Ever wonder what your cat is saying? Well, the Meowlingual may be just the thing for you.

According to the Japanese company that makes it, by having your cat meow into a microphone on the device, owners will be provided with a literal translation of what their cat has to say.

I'll predict Bella's most often used phrases right now: "Feed me! Don't pet me! Can't you ever just let me sleep? Where's my shmousie (fur covered mouse toy)? Stop putting me near my box! I don't need to go!"

New Look for eBay

This is a guest post from Carla of andshesaid.com.

Have you been surfing around eBay lately? You may have noticed that eBay is previewing a new look that will make it's debut this summer. If you haven't seen it, you can see for yourself. I say it's long overdue. It's been a long time since eBay's made some usable improvements. At least now you'll be able to see the image and bid right at the top of the page.

I have to say the guest posters are doing a good job while Kymberlie is gone... At least I think so. I've been waiting for a moment to post when there wasn't much going on but everyone's on the ball.

Cinderella Dreams

About 350 girls will be able to attend their prom in style thanks to donations of dresses, shoes, and other accessories.

I remember my prom as one of the most magical nights of my life. I looked beautiful, my dress was gorgeous, and Project Prom (a lock-in at my school with all kinds of great food, games, prizes, and fun) was a blast. Everyone should get to go to their prom. It was wonderful to see how happy these girls are to go to theirs.

How About We Call It "Here's My Real Agenda" Day?

Oh my fucking god. Bush declares National Sanctity of Human Life Day.

Bush, who has supported various abortion restrictions, called on all Americans on Sunday to "reaffirm the value of human life and renew our dedication to ensuring that every American has access to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

What the fuck? Can this administration make their stance on women any clearer? If Bush really thinks that "(e)very child is a priority and a blessing, and I believe that all should be welcomed in life and protected by law," he is even more of a nutcase than I thought.

I am seriously beginning to think that this is the year that Roe v. Wade will be overturned.

How much longer as a country can we survive with this man as president? How many civil liberties and freedoms must we lose? How I wish I could be unconcerned with all of this and just live my life. How I wish I could just stick my head in the sand and pretend it doesn't exist.

Get Your Money Back

Surprise, surprise! Turns out the music industry is guilty of price fixing CDs. Who'd have thought? The good news, though, is that if you bought a CD between 1995 and 2000 you are elligbile to be part of the class action lawsuit. You can get $20 back by going and filing a claim. It's not much money, but it's better than nothing and I personally would like to see the recording industry lose a little money.

Despair

A man in Iran beheaded his seven-year-old daughter because he thought she had been raped by her uncle. He had to do it to defend his "honor, fame, and dignity."

I was thinking the other night of the woman in Nigeria who is going to be stoned to death for having a child out of wedlock. As soon as her baby is weaned, they are going to kill her. I weep for people in this world. When will we stop forcing women to wear clothes that cover them from head to foot and kill them if they are victims of violence? When will we stop female genital mutilations? When will this planet be a fair place to live? Ever? Never? Stories like this make me think that it is hopeless, that this world will never be a better place.

Hidden Agenda My Ass

Nickelodeon is going to air a special about children with gay parents. The idea of the special is to help others see that people with different families are the same as other people. Of course, Traditional Values Coalition, a right-wing group, sees it differently. Their executive director says, "It is a cover for promoting homosexuality for kids." WTF is wrong with people? Some people have families that have same-sex parents. How can you possibly see a show that tries to help kids learn to tolerate others and see that all people are the same as a show with a hidden agenda to turn your kid gay? Will people never learn that a show like this doesn't turn someone gay? If you're gay, you're gay. It's as simple as that. What a bunch of idiots.

Duh-bya Bush For Sure!

I decided to do a search today for the highest IQ score on record just to see what it is and I cam across this article that says President Bush has lowest IQ of all presidents of past 50 years. I must say, I am not at all surprised to find out that he is actually lower that 100, which is the average IQ score. They said that Bush has a 6,500 word vocabulary versus an average of 11,000 words for other presidents. Do you think that includes the ones he makes up? Love the fact that Democratic presidents actually average 40 points higher than the Republicans. I was surprised how smart some of the presidents are. Scores in the 170s and 180s are very rare and very high. Btw, my scores average around 160. I am one smart cookie! :-)

Update: Damn! I've been busted! According to Snopes, this story is just not true. Well, it just SEEMED like it had to be true. Oh, well. It was still good for a laugh! ~blushing sheepishly~

In today's headlines: two-headed moose fetus shocks Native community, baffles biologists. I wonder if the lady in the river from my previous moose post would have had to hold up two racks of antlers to confuse it!

Odd Todd

I found out today that Odd Todd (another unemployed dot.commer) was busted by the New York Labor Department (free registration required at The NY Times to view the article). I feel for Todd and left him $5.00. I hope that he doesn't end up losing his money to The Man. Like it isn't shitty enough being unemployed (the part where he talks about not being able to sleep at night resonated strongly with me), now you have to get in trouble for being successful in getting donations from people. If he was actively looking for a job and has the documents to prove it, they need to back off of him. Poor Todd.

You'll Be Missed, Doc

I was reading the news today and saw that animator Chuck Jones has died at age 89. This is so sad. Like most kids, I grew up on a steady diet of his cartoons and some of my fondest memories are of his work. I loved "What's Opera, Doc?" and remember watching it through my Viewfinder. One of my absolute cartoons featured Marc Anthony & Kitty (the bulldog and black and white kitten). The bulldog thought the little kitty had ended up cooked in a batch of cookies and when the mom in the picture made him a cookie shaped like a cat he just cried and carried it around everywhere. It was just priceless. My dad used to sing the songs from "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi" to my brother and I and whenever we saw snakes (we lived on an acre in a wooded area of Texas), would call them Nog or Noganina. Going though his official website, it's amazing how many incredible characters he created. What an amazingly talented man. He will be missed by children and adults everywhere.

It's About Time

As the clock ticks over from 8:01 PM on Wednesday, February 20th, 2002, time will (for sixty seconds only) read in perfect symmetry. To be more precise: 20:02, 20/02, 2002. It is an event which has only ever happened once before, and is something which will never be repeated. The last occasion that time read in such a symmetrical pattern was long before the days of the digital watch (or the 24-hour clock): 10:01 AM, on January 10, 1001. And because the clock only goes up to 23.59, it is something that will never happen again.

WTC Alternatives

I found this article about proposed buildings to replace the World Trade Center. Some of the ideas are really awesome. I think I like the one with the bridge the best. (Link courtesy of Jish)

Canadian Gold!

I had started to make a post last week about the whole Canadian figure skating pair scandal and never got around to it. This is the first time (probably since 1988) that I've actually watched the Olympics thanks to Steven Tivoing it. I was absolute stunned by Jamie Sale and David Pelletier's performance. When they finished and they just had the look that they KNEW they'd do the absolute best they could, I was so happy for them and proud of them. Then, they got totally screwed in the judging. Today, that has been rectified. They have been awarded the gold medal. I am so glad that this travesty has been rectified!

Blog To Go - Not For Long!

I finally get into AvantGo's ability to allow users to use a PDA to download and sync your pages only to find out that as of next week, they are going to start charging if you have more than eight people subscribed to your channel. And it's not cheap either. The cost is going to be $1,000 a year. Go read their new FAQ here.

Star Trek Going For the Gold

I found an article today about how the crew from Start Trek (Picard, Riker, Data, and Worf) will represent the United Federation of Planets at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City as a last-minute entry in the four-man bobsled competition. Really. Go read the article. (Link courtesy of Marmalade Maermaid)
