Can I paint your chair?
If anyone has been laboring under the delusion that I am now, or ever was cool, you need to see this.
Over at Fark, we’ve been talking about me being on Weakest Link.
Somehow, the conversation has morphed into a “Six degrees of Kevin Bacon” discussion…boy, I love that game. You all know it, right?
A was in [movie] with B.
B was in [TV Show] with C.
C was in [prison] with Kevin Bacon.
So A is 2 degrees of Kevin Bacon.
Wanna know how many degrees of Kevin Bacon I am? Click [link] or [comment], and you can read it there.
Happy Halloween, everybody!
Halloween is my absolute number one most favoritest holiday, EVER. Maybe it’s my inner Druid…I dunno. I’ve always loved it. The spooking, the scaring, the candy, the punkin carving…mostly the fact that the fundies don’t like it…that’s always been a big bonus.
So, what are you doing for Halloween? Why don’t you post a picture of your costume in the comment area? I’d post mine, but I haven’t put it on yet. I’m gonna be a ghoul, complete with pointy ears and bald head…no fangs, though. Fangs were too damn expensive.
Hope everyboody (ha!) has a great day and safe evening, whatever you may decide to do.
So I just got back from my taping of The Weakest Link.
I’m bound by contract to not say a single word about the show, like who did what, or who won, or anything like that…
I can say something, that is going to rock everyone’s world. It certanly rocked mine.
I sat in the green room (a place where actors hang out while they get stuff ready. There’s food, drinks, and TV, usually), and watched the World Series.
Not a big deal, right?
Well, I watched The World Series, With WILLIAM FUCKING SHATNER.
It was so goddamn cool. I was sitting there, talking about baseball with him, discussing Randy Johnson versus Curt Shilling (Who was better), the various strategies employed by the teams during the few innings that we were watching…and he was so cool to me, I don’t even know what to do. He was nice. He was funny. He was warm, genuine, and basically just a 100% cool-ass guy.
Matter of fact, I can say this one thing about the show: William Shatner was the funniest I have ever seen him, or anyone who was in Star Trek, ever.
William Shatner has earned 50,000 cool points with me, after tonight. One for each monkey at this site.
So, until further notice, I am dropping the FUCKING from WILLIAM SHATNER, and I am closing the store at the end of the week, even though it’s earning me enough to pay for the MASSIVE bandwidth I’m consuming here.
William Shatner, you are my new buddy. I’ll see you for Game 4. I’m buying the first round.
Guess where I’m going, right now?
I’m going to play on a special Star Trek edition of Weakest Link!!
It’s all for charity, and my charity is The Electronic Frontier Foundation. They’re guaranteed $10,000 of TWL’s money, and even more, if I can make it to the end, and best my opponents, who include…WILLIAM FUCKING SHATNER.
Holy Crap. This is going to be SO MUCH FUN!
RFB is on autopilot all day, today. There’s an IRC chat room called #rfb at irc.undernet.org
Have fun, everybody!
Have you read the Slashdot interview, yet?
I am really proud of it, and the comments there have been overwhelmingly positive. I caught myself beaming more than once, as I read it.
Considering how things have been lately, this really made me feel good.
A big thanks to everyone who mirrored the site. That was super cool.
I finally finished answering the questions from the Slashdot interview.
They’re going to be posted tomorrow, so the site will go down for another 24 hours, starting sometime tomorrow around 12 or 1 PST.
If you can mirror the site, let me know ASAP, and I’ll put up some temporary links.
RFB will be up all day tomorrow, barring any more live365 trauma.
Randy Johnson pitches complete game shut out of the Yankees tonight.
I bet this is going to generate more flames than anything I’ve said yet, but I dislike the Yankees just slightly more than I dislike the D’backs, so this series is a lot like a presidential election…but Johnson and Pettitte…holy crap what a game!
Top 3 things I liked about tonight’s game:
3. Yanks are shut out. Shove that in your ‘mystique’.
2. Johnson, being interviewed after the game, is super cool, and praises Pettitte over and over again, saying what a great pitcher he is, and it’s 100% genuine. No false modesty. Maybe The Unit isn’t such a tool after all.
1. The game is over fast enough to guarantee The Simpsons will start on time tonight in LA.
