8084 – It’s not too hot for tea!

GeotargetCrazy Rag-tag night on call yesterday. I don’t think I had a moment’s peace between 5:30 and 8.

It got to the point where I was in a bit of a manic panic…laughing like a hyena once a job was pushed through.


I can’t believe my birthday is in less than a month. Didn’t I just have one? I think I’m going to treat myself to a massage at the Vicki’s sister’s spa. I’m far from a metrosexual, but I’ve got nothing against a serious back rub.


Moment of Lyric (quicktime movie) (here’s the band’s website)

Too hot for tea but I’ll drink it anyway,
It’s a nice day.
Too late for him, but I’ll take him anyway,
It’s a nice day.
Happy to be Alive…
Some believe in God,
Some worship the Devil,
Some go to church,
Others pray to the moon,
On a nice day
On a nice day
I don’t care what they say
I don’t care what they say
I don’t care what they say
On a nah-nuh-nah-nuh-nah-nah-nee-nah-nah-nuhhh…
nah-nuh-nah-nuh-nah-nah-nee-nah-nah-nuhhh…

Mother on a thorn tree
It’s older and gray
asking her little girl to come back and stay
Politicians on the radio and TV today
Talking ’bout how great it is in the USA
On a nice day
I don’t care what they say
I don’t care what they say
I don’t care what they say

On a nah-nuh-nah-nuh-nah-nah-nee-nah-nah-nuhhh…
nah-nuh-nah-nuh-nah-nah-nee-nah-nah-nuhhh…
It doesn’t matter if you’re going mad
It doesn’t matter if this place is so, so, sad.

On a nice day
On a nice day
On a nice day
On a nice day
I don’t care what they say
On a nice day
I don’t care what they say
On a nice day
nah-nuh-nah-nuh-nah-nah-nee-nah-nah-nuhhh…
nah-nuh-nah-nuh-nah-nah-nee-nah-nah-nuhhh…
On a nice day…
nah-nuh-nah-nuh-nah-nah-nee-nah-nah-nuhhh…
What a niice day
nah-nuh-nah-nuh-nah-nah-nee-nah-nah-nuhhh…
On a nice dayyyyy
nah-nuh-nah-nuh-nah-nah-nee-nah-nah-nuhhh…
Ha!

I first heard of them on the Bewitched movie soundtrack, of all things. Lounge music you can dance to, pretty groovy stuff. I think her accent makes it that much better.

I still say nice as NOICE, unless I make an active effort not to.

Speaking of music videos that are noice – take a peek at Night of Fire (google video wins again!) Stuff like this reminds me to make a point of visiting Japan someday. Some sort of Asian spice girl clonettes with a tubby wrestler guy in a speedo, little red booties and golden cape singing europop cover tunes and breathing flame. What’s not to like?

a still tongue makes a happy life
Not much to say today, dear journal.

As always when I have nothing to say, I toss a shload of linkies into the journal for posterity.


25 Most interesting webcams of 2005


TSG’s 2005 mug shots of the year. (Juan Llama is my fave.)


Random Scotto factoid – If I give a thumbs-up, it’s with my left hand, but thumbs-down is done with my right.


Taking Danny out for his B’Day today… I suspect it’ll be lunch, hanging out, maybe some pirates and possibly a mini-walkabout. I was thinking about getting him a fly pen computer, but instead opted for our old standby. (I dig the $100 laptop idea, too.)


Moment of Lyric – (flash video or mp3, video is superior, but mp3 is better for listening to on the road)

Old Godzilla was hopping around
Tokyo City like a big playground
when suddenly Batman burst from the shade
and hit Godzilla with a Bat-grenade
Godzilla got pissed and began to attack
but didn’t expect to be blocked by Shaq
who proceeded to open up a can of Shaq Fu
when Aaron Carter came out of the blue

and he started beating up Shaquille O’Neal
then they both got flattened by the Batmobile
but before it could make it back to the Batcave
Abraham Lincoln popped out of his grave
and took an AK47 out from under his hat
and blew Batman away with a rat-a-tat-tat
but he ran out of bullets and he ran away
because Optimus Prime came to save the day

this is the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny
good guys, bad guys, and explosions as far as the eye can see
and only one will survive, I wonder who it will be
this is the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny

Godzilla took a bite out of Optimus Prime
like Scruff McGruff took a bite out of crime
and then Shaq came back covered in a tire track
but Jackie Chan jumped out and landed on his back
and Batman was injured, and trying to get steady
when Abraham Lincoln came back with a machete
but suddenly something caught his leg and he tripped
Indiana Jones took him out with his whip

then he saw Godzilla sneaking up from behind
and he reached for his gun which he just couldn’t find
’cause Batman stole it and he shot and he missed
and Jackie Chan deflected it with his fist
then he jumped in the air and did a somersault
while Abraham Lincoln tried to pole vault
onto Optimus Prime, but they collided in the air
then they both got hit by a Care Bear Stare, oooh

this is the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny
good guys, bad guys, and explosions as far as the eye can see
and only one will survive, I wonder who it will be
this is the Ultimate Showdown…

angels sang out in immaculate chorus
down from the heavens descended Chuck Norris
who delivered a kick which could shatter bones
into the crotch of Indiana Jones
who fell over on the ground, writhing in pain
as Batman changed back into Bruce Wayne
but Chuck saw through his clever disguise
and he crushed Batman’s head in between his thighs

then Gandalf the Grey and Gandalf the White and
“Monty Python and the Holy Grail”‘s Black Knight and
Benito Mussolini and The Blue Meanie and
Cowboy Curtis and Jambi the Genie
Robocop, the Terminator, Captain Kirk, and Darth Vader
Lo Pan, Superman, every single Power Ranger
Bill S. Preston and Theodore Logan,
Spock, The Rock, Doc Ock, and Hulk Hogan
all came out of nowhere lightning fast
and they kicked Chuck Norris in his cowboy ass
it was the bloodiest battle the world ever saw
with civilians looking on total awe

and the fight raged on for a century
many lives were claimed, but eventually
the champion stood, the rest saw their better:
Mr. Rogers in a bloodstained sweater

this is the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny
good guys, bad guys, and explosions as far as the eye can see
and only one will survive, I wonder who it will be
this is the Ultimate Showdown…
this is the Ultimate Showdown…
this is the Ultimate Showdown…
of Ultimate Destiny


1 year ago – Mel’s Gram moves in, Dan doesn’t meet her, on call, A&E, smallware, a resolution I fairly succeeded at, curry on the brain

2 years ago – dropload, shoot around corners, I first hear about how capital punishment is a far more expensive system than one whose maximum penalty is life in prison, Urban Exploration Florida

3 years ago – bro/taxi trouble, conquer the world, smoking gun mug shots

4 years ago – Random Name Generator, gunplay dream, family channel, Scotto’s head, 2001 review, Japanese space shuttle, Afghan sports, pee color

5 years ago – words within words, I disagree with Georgia O’Keeffe, LJ bumpy

7014 – I feel like being a gold-brickin’ meathead today.

Good Movie torrent site… Where else can you get Eddie Izzard Concerts, Jeremiah Johnson and House of Flying Daggers? Pretty Scotto-liscious.


I forgot how much I liked the character Pete from Brisco County. Quirky. Pam liked him, too.


I’m not sure if the full beard is better or worse than the goat. It’s different, and certainly seasonal. I may just try my hand at having my jaws fuzzed for a few weeks. There’s a bit more salt in with the pepper now.


I wonder what sort of theme music would follow me around? I’d sort of like sitar, but somehow, I suspect that I’d be pigeonholed into some lumbering brass in there. Heaven Help me if I were to get the “Otis” theme from the Superman movies. I like to think that I give off an air of calm, kindness, and intelligence, but I think about how much of the goof would override that?

Just as well that I don’t have my own theme or incidental music.


Man… Dictionaraoke still cracks me up regularly.


Assorted fun flash games


Danny wants to go to Otaku-Con in a month.

I’m not too big on most anime, but cons offer me a chance to hit the dealers rooms for Christmas prezzies, a chance to socialize with Dan where he’s very happy, and there’s supposed to be a bunch of cosplayers there…. which just brings out the “Dian Fossey – Research Primatologist” in me. I’m a people-watcher, and the more fringe elements always teach me something new.

I wonder if James / Mark / Renata / Etc. will be attending? I haven’t seem much of that crew in a dog’s age.


1 year ago – bro responsored by viper, GP stuff, palm art

2 years ago – accexpo, gossamer and gollum (later Jinx and Felix), Christmas specials

3 years ago – Cranberry Sauce, walkies, haiku, wacky news

4 years ago – Bob Marley, Roy likes to destroy, danigolden asks if she can add me to her friends list. (I say sure!)

6667 Make way for ducklings

Dang… big ol’ rainstorm last night! Looks like it’s going to be big and wet the rest of the week.


Lots of piccies this entry. Took a few with my palm, hated them, and went back with my regular one to compare contrast.


I think it’s adorable that ducklings will orbit mama duck… venture foo to explore, but as soon as anything unusual happens, they run like a unit back to mama.

Some ducky-pictures, and a couple of others:
