Brain Games Is Now Over

Farewell, George W. Bush. Be careful not to trip over that criminally low bar you've set on you're way out.

Magnus, Thor and Jens

If you need help, use your SHIN to contact me. But not between 4 and 5; that's WILLY'S time!

Long live the Internets. Find stuff you never knew existed at the click of a mouse. Such as this amazing documentary of the making of "The Shining" shot by Stanley Kubrik's then 17-year-old daughter.

It's strangely fascinating watching Jack order rice and noodles and brushing his teeth. But then you realize he's walking to the set for the climactic axe-through-the-bathroom-door scene.

All sorts of insights into Kubrik's filmmaking process, Shelly Duvall's apparent fragility and gutsy professionalism, and a touching and unexpected emotional reaction from Scatman Crothers.

Well worth 35 minutes.

Does Not Compute

A few questions for the record:

Why would a robot do calesthenics?

What do robots have to do with football?

Why does this robot remind me of Ray Lewis?

Will somebody please make this fucking robot go away? They can get Al MacInnis to slap it in the head with that moronic glowing puck.

I really wish I could say I hate all those Coors Light ads, but this one always makes me crack up, to the point where I walk around the house shouting "Playoffs?" every 3 seconds. And then my kids start saying it, and it gets even funnier.

Anyway here's to the 2008 playoffs. Oops - sorry Bones. Hopefully this cheers you up anyway.

The Years Flash Before Our Eyes

It occurred to me last night, as I rang in the new year on my couch with minimal fanfare, that 2009 will be the last year people will be able to wear eyeglasses shaped with the year's numbers. 2010 would be all lopsided, right?

So here's a requiem to all those enterprising novelty eyewhere tycoons out there. It was a solid 10 year run. See you all in the year 3000.
