     There are certain instances in which I really wish that I owned a digital camera. For the most part, I feel that it would be too much of a burden to carry around for limited benefits, and a large possibility of damage or loss. However, there are times when you’re alone and you see something mind-boggling that must be shared with others in order to retain sanity. Unfortunately, without proof no one will ever believe you. I am currently in that situation and you, gentle reader, will just have to trust me.

     This movie SUCKS. Do not go see it for any reason. Trust me, it’s not what you think. If you really must see it, wait until it comes out on video so you can at least cut yourself in the privacy of your own home.

     The only thing that saved my life was that I was able to wash it away by watching D.C. Cab later in the night. That movie is fucking epic.

This was going to be the 100th post until I realized that drafts technically count as posts, and there were two drafts from last September. So then I deleted them, making this the 98th post…so the celebration came early. Deal with it.


Well, for starters, I took advantage of the new labeling system that Blogger has so graciously provided. Now, should your heart desire, you can organize our posts into cute little categories — something many of you have been begging for for months.

And obviously, the gorgeous new header that was forged in a furnace behind my dorm is pretty special. I really like using that idea, something about energizing an economy to make it competitive on a global scale by encouraging everyone in your nation to build a furnace to make steel in their backyard, it’s just innovative. Dumb as hell, but innovative. And that’s what we like here.

Well, that’s all of the improvements I could think of, aside from sporadic (at best) updates…now on to the assessment of the past 99…well, 97 posts.

Statistically speaking, I used a very scientific data analysis strategy to see how we matched up against one another.
