monday meh, where is everybody? edition

This is weird. It's after 9:30 a.m. and nobody else is in the office yet. Not even any zombies.....

Funky Friday, ZOMBIES

It's the time of the season for zombies -- and these guys are still touring! -- maybe they really are Zombies....

My Friday is off to a funky start indeed. The road between Bubbaville, where I live, and Collegetown, where I work, is closed due to two separate icky wrecks -- one involving a liquid nitrogen spill (someone erroneously reported a "nitrous oxide spill" on facebook -- tee hee!) and the other a diesel fuel spill. I think it's a good day to work from home....

Weinerdog Wednesday, Halloweener edition

Scooter Pie was looking quite devilish in this picture circa 2005. Happily, in the ensuing years she has not killed us in our sleep.

Funky Friday - Octubafest Continues!

Y'all can ease into the weekend with some smooth tuba jazz . . .

I love big brass!

Weinerdog Wednesday, O Diese Dakel! edition

What would Octoberfest be without some Bier und Wurst?  German artist and illustrator August Roeseler (1866-1934) captures dachshunds (Dakel) in the pursuit of these treats.

Monday Meh

I guess this would be the opposite of pandamonium.

It was a fabulous weekend in Bubbaville and environs -- now I have a case of the Monday Mehs . . . especially when I look ahead to Wednesday's (snowy?) forecast.

Fnuky Friday: Fnugg (Celebrating Octubafest)

He had me at the double tonguing.... Øystein Baadsvik performing "Fnugg" (which is a Norwegian word for something so small as to be almost invisible).

Not Friday, Not Funky - Listen Anyway!

The young musician who wrote and performs this song is a former student from the University where I work - pretty cool. It's also pretty cool to see so many younger people involved in the "Occupy" movements -- certainly none of the political parties seem to be invested in seeing that this upcoming generation has a level playing field to start their lives on. Or at least a field that isn't planted with ideological fodder that's corporate-sanctioned, genetically-modified, and barely digestible to those of us who can still think for ourselves. There is still some educating to be done, though, when too often it seems that half of the students on campus are willing to let themselves be walking billboards for the corporations that are, in one way or another, part of the problem.
