Progressive Rock, Explained

I think this is an excellent primer for anyone trying to understand what prog is all about.

Is "The Watchmaker's Complex" by Mushroom Sword as good an album as "Hex Wrench Regicide" by The Knotty Pine Coffins? Snooty music critics will be debating for years! Be sure to leave your two cents in the comments.

Ah relaxation

So I'm down at Oshawa's lovely Lakeview Park this afternoon, having just enjoyed a lengthy urban hike. I'm sitting on a bench in the shade, enjoying a nice view of Lake Ontario with a cold drink. Beautiful summer day, I'm on vacation -- life is grand.

A man and his teenaged son come into view, walking a big dog (probably a German Shephard cross). They pass in front of me, when said dog decides to leave one monstrous dookie about 4 feet from me.

The man says to his son, apparently for my benefit, "Oh, she's going again. I don't have another bag. I'll have to go get another bag." They walk off.

Needless to say, the ensuing odor brought an end to my state of relaxation. I had to leave before I could see if they'd come back to bag it.

Having been "double-bagged" on many outings by our own wee little dog, I have learned to (as the Boy Scouts say) come prepared. That's the lesson for you kids out there: CARRY SEVERAL DOGGY DOO-DOO BAGS.

Twitter

I used to think Twitter was stupid.

I still might. But I'm beginning to think it is a better fit than real blogging for someone as lazy as me.

Therefore, tweets have been added to the sidebar. Woot!

YOUR URGENT UNDERSTANDING IS NEEDED

Subject: Awaitting your responce.

My name is Barack Hussein Obama, one of the sons of Barack Obama, Sr., a Luo from Nyang'oma Kogelo, Nyanza Province, Kenya, and of Ann Dunham Soetoro.

As a result of my recent election to a high government post, I have come into possession of $3,550,000,000,000 ($3.55 trillion of U.S. dollars), that I wish to transfer to various agents in the states and abroad during the years 2009 and 2010.

However, there are many in the U.S. legislative body who want to restrict or encumber these funds. I have spoken with my advisers Messrs. David Plouffe and David Axelrod, also high government officials, on how to distribute this money without hitches, and they advised me to liaise with various U.S. citizens by email who can act as partners to impress upon their representatives that the money in question is urgently needed for important projects.

It is on this basis I am seeking for assistance. Your percentage is negotiable. Please note; your age and profession doesn't really matter in this transaction. Waiting for your immediate response.

Regards,
Barack Hussein Obama
