That song came on the radio yesterday and I cannot get it out of my head. Feel free to offer up new ear worms for me.

  • I pulled NaNoWriMo together in the end, WHEW. Finding that last chapter and notes for three others (I'm a fan of outlines) got me over the finish line. Congrats to those of you that made it, as well!
  • Today is bread day, yum
  • Today is also homemade pizza day night, holy yum
  • This dude, while clearly having too much time on his hands, is seriously awesome. He took a midi drum pad (you use this for studio-type work) and kitted it out for GUITAR HERO. And won on expert. If you've got 8 minutes, watch him waste "Through The Fires And Flames" with a DRUM. (note to new folks: I have a serious thing for drummers. It can't be helped, only encouraged) This guy was clearly a quad player in HS and college. Cool things (to me:) he set his kit up for double notes so he could play three notes at a time with two sticks. THAT IS SO COOL. I don't care about the nerd factor, that video makes me want to get the same kit for Mr. S (a former drummer) and watch him and have sexy tiems. :D
  • Continuing on the nerd train, for my fellow Trekkers out there, here are some steampunk Star Trek wallpapers. Spock, natch, is my favorite followed by the Chekhov and Sulu poster. :)
  • Continuing on the steampunk train *shovels in some coal* this guy makes steampunk Lego kits. I don't care how old you are, those are too cool for school. Side note about Legos, if you want to get a cool present for someone into Legos, you can submit a drawing and they'll make a Lego creation just for you. If you have a little boy that's drawn something, how neat would that be for him on Hanukkah or Christmas?
  • And a head's up: that steampunk blog will suck your day away, if you're not careful. I spent a solid hour looking at their astrolabe pics. Am I the biggest geek, or what? (I mean, come on. Steampunk Stormtroopers!!)
  • Lastly, this is a website that will print CUSTOM FABRIC for a very reasonable price, imo. $18 bucks a yard for your own design? Nice. (Considering that high-end designers charge well over $180 per yard.) How many times have you wished you had just the right material for drapes, etc, but nothing was quite right? I plan on using this service a LOT.



It was thebratqueen's birthday this weekend, someone whom I've had the pleasure of meeting and working with on a panel. TBQ? I hope it was lovely, that there were delicious foods and proper teas, and that the animals gave you many lovings!

Our neighbor has a different rock band game that has a guitar, drumset, and bass (they don't have the bass though). It's pretty neat. We were over there for Thanksgiving and it was cool to watch the boys play (they're both in their 20s, but still the boys *g*).

Also - I would like to thank you (not) for putting that song in my head. Now I'm bopping and dipping and singing in my chair.

Oh, that's called "Rock Band" and it's sweet! (It's designed for that, where Guitar Hero isn't. Not that one, at least. There's a new one out for the holidays that has an expansion pack.) The dude in the video made his own game controller, basically. It's awesome.

And I NEED A NEW EAR WORM! (At least I didn't sing "That girl is poison! Never trust a big butt that smiles....")

Yes! Rock Band! That's it. And it's really cool. But so is being able to make your own controller. Geeks rock!

Rock Band's fun. I'm wanting Rock Band 2 as it has a bigger selection of songs I dig.

And exactly: the fact that he made his own controller, and the extras he put on there! it's bad ass. :D

I haven't heard that song in ages. *sigh*

I would have loved the lego draw-it-yourself for Xmas. What a great idea!

hahaha, I know! I was rocking out when it came on. Hee!

Isn't that a great idea? Our neighbors told us about it, and it's really cool.

if that doesn't stick in your head, I don't know what will!

Of course, this coming from the girl who's had "Purple People Eater" in her head for weeks

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas...

Courtesy of the constant Christmas music I hear at work all day long. :D

I actually don't know that song, and I think I'm glad! Oooh, some of those rotten X-mas songs are just horrible to get stuck in your head.

*sings The Waitresses Christmas rap*

Yes, be glad you haven't! It was cute the first time I heard it... Granted, I enjoy it more than the super religious Christmas music that is playing currently. Ugh.

And congrats on finishing NaNo!

Thank you! I really really REALLY didn't think I was going to make it, what with my notebook missing. WHEW!

I put my hand upon Steampunk's hip. When I dip, you dip, WE dip. You put your steampunk hand upon MY hip. When you dip, I dip WE dip.

I don't even know what song that is! I never listen to the radio if I can avoid it.

Congrats on NaNo! You rock, Stoney.

p.s. DRUMMERS ARE HOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT! I have spent far far too much time on youtube just watching dudes drum (or talk about their drums) lately! Oh, man.

HI BB! The song is from... 1994? It's a lame dance song that was a one hit wonder. Total ear worm. The blanks? "Dip." Cheese-y.

Thank you! I really REALLY didn't think I'd pull it off, such a relief!

Ungh, drummers. I almost don't care about anything with their looks if they're hell on the skins, rawr. Since I was a preteen, that's what did it for me.

Just to let you know ever since I watched "27 Dresses" on Friday I have of course had "Bennie & the Jets" in my head. Yes I said all weekend.

Ya know hubby use to play lead guitar in a band and well he still hopes to again. I wonder what he would think of getting Guitar Hero as a gift. Well that is if I had actual money to buy it and more inmportantly the play system to use it on.

Oh, that's a painful song to have on mind repeat!

!!! He needs Guitar Hero. He NEEDS it! You can get XBox Arcade with a Guitar Hero bundle for $200 at Wal-Mart and Best Buy, and sometimes you can find them on Craigslist for cheap, too?

Isn't that the most wonderful thing EVER!?!?! I knew knew KNEW you would love them! (They have full models that have been recreated, too. That stormtrooper link takes you to some of them.) Oh, I love steampunk. It just speaks to the scientist and lover of Victorian everything in me. Perfect combo!

Aww, thank you! I'm getting closer and closer to submitting it.... NERVE WRACKING.

(And re: your comment about the boys. Okay, gotcha. What are their current interests? *G*)

Printing your own fabric, eh? Oh, I have a fabric geek of a friend who'd love that site... *grins*

I have two spontaneously recurring earworms - one and two. I don't have to see the movies, hear the music, nothing, they just... start up in my head and linger for days.

I even have a matching icon. :D

Heee! I fully support the embedding of any song from Charlie and the Chocolate factory into my head! :D

What would blow me away even more (but isn't likely) is if this was him sight reading for the 1rst or 2nd run through.

So. Awesome.

usually when i get a song in my head like that, it's "fergalicious," so I'm pretty sure "da dip" is better than that ;)
However, I find that "the pink panther" is a good tune to drown out ear worms. Though, you then have that song stuck in your head for a week or so.

I'll be up in the gym just workin' on my fitness he's my witness [oooooEEE!]

I need to make an ear worm of Beethoven or Wagner. So I don't feel so lame-o all the time.. :)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
