As the title of the contest says on Worth1000 - may the farce be with you. Enjoy what may have been had other celebrities snatched up some of these roles. Also, UP was the best animated movie of the year.

Who needs a space elevator when you can just as easily build a space ladder instead? I ask these questions to myself (and anyone who will listen) on a daily basis. You're not listening, are you?

Daily Grind: Temperamental

Name: Vin (aka mic jack hero)
How Vin feels today: Temperamental @ 12:26:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: Continue chugging along at this week's coding project, stop getting frustrated when something unrelated deters me from getting this programming job done.

Music Stuck in Head: Possum Kingdom / The Toadies
This song sounds way more interesting when played from a mono jack (certain aspects of song are mixed to the left and right respectively). Makes the song a little more spookier than usual.

Stuff to do today:

  • Give a birthday shout-out to Alpha
  • Rush home early today to play newly released Special Edition of Monkey Island
  • Encourage readers to visit this URL and click the big YES button
  • Cmon, help me get written into a video game
  • Stop begging
