You Haven't Heard This -- "Danse With Me George" You Haven't Heard This -- "Danse With Me George"

I know, I know, it’s been awhile. Sorry, I’ve had a bad case of the 2018s, you can probably relate.

David Lynch Teaches Typing

This would appear to align with the interests of several of youse guys. It’s also free!

A Triple-Dip Recommended Reading List (Part 1) A Triple-Dip Recommended Reading List (Part 1)

[Since I’m currently drawing a blank re: single authors to concentrate on, this post is just going to be a capsule view of various older works I think you might enjoy. - BI]

A Futile and Stupid Gesture

Not a review as such, but the Netflix Doug Kenney biopic is pretty good, and you should probably check it out if you’re able. Joel McHale is good as a young Chevy Chase, and Thomas Lennon is practically a clone of O’Donoghue.

Look, Chintzy Graphics! Look, Chintzy Graphics!

If anyone else would like to do a “Space Fogeys” post (please someone else do a “Space Fogeys” post!), you are more than welcome to use these here images as headers. Taste the rainbow! (They’re all .png files.)

A Sturgeon Is Not Just A Fish A Sturgeon Is Not Just A Fish

[The Introductory Post Bibble-Babble: Hi! People have been expressing an interest in getting thursdaytales up and running again, and that is definitely (hopefully) happening! Entirely separately and coincidentally, Gaudy Mouse and I (mostly Gaudy) were playing around on Twitter with the idea of a series of posts…

I think I have a new favorite Twitter account

Also seems to cater to at least two of lightninglouie’s interests.

A to Z Redux

Been threatening to do this for years. Don’t know how well it holds together as an actual playlist, but at least it’s (some) of the songs from the actual posts. Could only find the live version of “Sledgehammer” on Spotify, though. Oh, well, at least I did it, finally.

I'm still here, Chief I'm still here, Chief

Just so you guys know: yep, I lost my internet connection again. But I just got a new one (cable, no less!) today. Will try to appear here more frequently (was going to add, “When I’ve got something interesting to say,” but that’s never really been much of a concern here, has it?).

PSA: Rick and Morty Season 3 Premiere is Live Streaming PSA: Rick and Morty Season 3 Premiere is Live Streaming

If you missed the premiere yesterday (I did), Adult Swim is running a Rick and Morty marathon today on their website (“where available”). You’ll probably have to sit through parts of Seasons 1 and 2 before you get to the new one, since they’re running them all sequentially; but that’s not exactly torture, and it’s…

Possible Jetsons-Batman Crossover? Possible Jetsons-Batman Crossover?

I was looking for a graphic to respond to a posting of the Violent Femmes’ cover of “Eep Opp Ork Ah-Ah” on Twitter (as one does) when I ran across this:

My Favorite Tweets Today (ALL FOOT EDITION) My Favorite Tweets Today (ALL FOOT EDITION)

Okay, it all started when I noticed a thread in my feed talking about weird feet. Naturally, since I am bizarrely proud of the fact I possess a genetic atavism, I felt I had to jump in:

My Favorite Tweets Today (Non-Political)

Added a line to hopefully prevent Kinja from showing THE WHOLE FRAKKIN’ POST in preview.


Amanda Deibert is a comic book writer I’ve never read. I only saw her tweet of this because I follow people like Gail Simone and Mark Waid. But it so perfectly captures how the defenseless and the disenfranchised feel right now I had to retweet it. She thanked me personally for the retweet. I think she’s thanking…


Hat-tip to MUCouture on Twitter.

Leon Russell RIP Leon Russell RIP

This one seemed particularly apropo, for some reason:

Spaceflight Tonight Spaceflight Tonight

Some of the older hands here will remember Observation Deck regular Noise. I just found out he’s started a YouTube vlog called Spaceflight Tonight, where he discusses and tries to answer questions about, duh, spaceflight. His initial entry is short but pretty informative. Give it a try if you’re so inclined!

Seriously, Fuck You, 2016

Robert Vaughn dead at 83.
