Bok-Nero
++We only have a finite amount of time on this big blue marble and I have chosen to look up the word Wook. If it’s a Star Wars reference it is kind of a smear on wookies. (As expected, it was only an hour later that me and my husband pointed out a wook in the wild.)

++For some reason only recently heard the extended version of Ray Charles' What'd I Say (1 & 2) and honestly might never be the same. Charles sounds like one half of cats mating, I'll leave it at that.

++With the advent of so much automation aka robots replacing jobs, can't wait til we do politicians. #edgy #political #ROBOTPRESIDENT!! #b52s

++Someone was ribbing someone else on a Brit panel show I was watching that their avatar had surpassed/bested their real life, and c'mon, who hasn't that happened to?

++I was going to make a joke about liking Bok Nero's brother Bok Choy's music better.. but that doesn't make sense unless we are going by the way Mexicans transpose/switch up their mother's surname to be their last name on legal documents and how that would work with Choy vs Nero and all of sudden I invented some kind of Name Calculus trying to figure it all out.

All This and More

++Well I'm afraid that since all I ever do is listen to old music anymore this blog has become nothing more than a mood and weather monitor and today is no different! Gettin' happy with this oldie before the next round of rain comes along.

++Shine bright like a diamond, Shark Tank guy.

++Saw this refractometer on Martha Bakes the other day-- used to measure the Brix level or sweetness of grapes. So whatchadooooo is you drip some grapedy grape juice on the end and hold it towards the light to see the level, this one pictured is for alcohol, I guess. SCIENCE!! I imagined some scientist giving a Valentine's Day card to his beloved inscribed : You are a 25 Brix House. lolololol.

++I totes would not be able to this without saying "Boing Boing Boing" and thinking of Tigger.: (Yaaaas, always love some "OCEANFOOTAGE.")

Tonight

++I like a lot of these ideas I'm seeing for recycling cardboard such as furniture but putting paper that close to a source of heat seems questionable at best. Unless you're going for this effect, in the foyer.

++People done attaining their 15 minutes of fame now hard at work on those CEUs of shame.

++Great, that goofy lyric about her being tattooed to his brain is now tattooed to my brain. Just. Great.

++Wonder if there's a guy named Mark who lives in Ojai who calls himself Ojai Mark.

++Half the products want to remove hair from the body, the other half wanna add hair to another part of the body. When it all goes down, one side's gotta win, to kiiiiinda paraphrase the great George Wallace.

A Mostly Hidden Rose

Slide_289535_2288765_free
++This video was so good at anticipating my thoughts that I think S.U.G. might even know me better than the You Tube Recommended For You list.

++I feel like when the mob went after Pete Doherty and he'd had enough and kinda left us for a while, that's when the internet's innocence died. He was like Frosty the Snowman.

++In the White Stripes biopic the role of Meg White will be played by Teller from Penn and Teller and in the Penn and Teller biopic vice versa. Saves on costs.

(Jack White would of course be played by this guy.)

++This shows me getting down to work everyday, or maybe this one is more like it where the predator fish is a representation of people trying to get work from me.

Speaking of which it doesn’t look like I will meet the self-imposed quota so just gonna toss some throwback Diiv up here and enjoy the sun and call it a week!

Yay

++I wanted to see if Meetup was still a thing so looked it up and boy is it, at least it is in my 'hood. Thriving, active involvement in almost any area of interest conceivable. Alas, no group for Lindt Master Chocolatiers, I chuckled to myself, thinking that was something the company just made up for the commercials. Wronnggo! Casino!

Baloney

++Some people's wikis are a wild wild bronco ride.

3Dstock tardigrade shutter cc.jpg.653x0_q80_crop-smart

++Learned about Tardigrades on QI, a microanimal that can go dormant for centuries, survive meteors and global mass extinction events and after all that, when re-watered can come back to life!

++Ok but how would this affect someone on food stamps with erectile dysfunction?

++I have joked about James Taylor's Handy Man many many times over the years but listening to it again yesterday, I came to a bit of grudging admiration at the very first line of the song that always bothers me where he not only mansplains BUT multitasks.

Smoke Gets In Your Eyes

Gonna hit the quan StheSS early today in light of yet another busy day tomorrow with, yup a standard British panel show post. I thought I had completely tapped out the QI vein when some elves started posting new clips on You Tube. (Sometimes videos disappear and reappear too.) Love these two science experiments so much, especially the one above. This technology would be so cool in place of Heelys as a form of transportation.. the lady I saw the other day in Whole Foods would plotz! And the one below is just plain fun.

1-2-3-4 Pressure

++Wonder when these Matty McC/Lincoln commercials will finally get to the part when he goes on a murder spree.

++Oy, I don't think I will make my self-imposed quota this week. All I wanna do is walk along Santa Barbara's waterfront? Waaah. Stress...

On that same note here's some Slow Pulp...until next time?

++Dios mio, I have nothing to contribute today and I maaayy not meet my weekly quota this week.

++Sometimes you have first world gripes like, I wish they'd use a different picture of Edward Snowden. He's not the MySpace guy. There's gotta be a different pic somewhere.

++Got together with some cousins from a different state I hadn't seen in quite sometime recently (18 years to be exact) and was caught off guard by how much bushier their eyebrows had become. #differentstate

++Almost daily I get to hear my husband complain about the Time Warner/Spectrum channel that automatically boots up first thing in the morning. So they have an advantage in that sense. It really gets on his nerves how they try to work the local angle. A few quotes from him: "This is some kind of parallel universe." "Who are these people?" "It's like they are covering local news but not really. It's like Los Angeles but Looose Angeeeelees instead." "No Toni Guinyard.""This interview with Eva Longoria where she looks like Eva Longoria but actually she's Eva Longwarria." And on and on it goes.

++Because I'm so colossally busy today [AACK!] I'm just going to blatantly steal from NPR and post a song from their SxSW Preview. This song was only posted a mere 14 hours ago. Serendipitously gorgeous!:

Just a little placeholder for yet another busy day where time, work, play, different forms of media all blend together. Deal with it Spielberg, the times and mediums, they are a'blendin'.

Heh who we kidding, I've just been throwing my Vans up in the ai-r all morning onnacount that meme, like I just don't care.
