I couldn't resist...

Merry... or should I say, Happy Christmas to all y'all.
I hope you have a great one!

While playing with a 2008 Holiday favourite, Pho-ho-hoto Booth, I got to reading the fine print. The images are based on ones from a site called Sexy People. Best new blog find of the week, for sure.

'Tis snowing outside, but I fear we shan't have time removed from our workday tomorrow. Shazbut! That wouldv'e been most sweet on that, the 2nd-last day of school.

However, I'm still in the giving mood.

Gift #1 - ever hear of Google's 1-800-GOOG-411? You can use it as a business directory/phonebook. The best part? You can also use it to connect you to any business for free - no long distance charges!

Gift #2 - I loves me some Christmas music every year. I have a pretty large & great collection, and I'm always combing blogs this time of year for more. I found a doozy today. The bad part was I have almost all the good ones on it already, but if you don't... it's the motherlode! The list (downloadable individually or as zipped mixes) is most impressive.

Once you go black, you never go back. You were only waiting for this moment to arise (get it?)! That's probably the hope of Mozilla, who've created an internet browser called Blackbird that is so black, it urinates oil. Apparently, finding African-American/Canadian/Whateverian content, groups, etc. on the web isn't so easy, 'cause this browser's supposed to make it easier. Maybe it's a great browser... you know, a specialized version of Firefox or something like that. I dunno. It doesn't really call to me to test it out. I guess it's supposed to foster community or something like that, too. I mean, after all... after all these years of racism, don't we want to separate visibly different sectors of the human race as much as we can - even in the mostly equal/invisible Internet? You know... isolate our diversity?

I just don't see how this is a good idea at all, but I'll be interested to hear news about it in the future.

In honour of its trailblazingness, I've come up with some new "specialty group" browsers and programs myself. The intellectual property copyright trademark patent thingamajig has already been filed for, so don't even think of takin' my names! This stuff's gonna be huge. Huge!
  • Gookle
  • Wopcrawler
  • Hindoo!
  • HonkyTalk
  • JewTube
  • LimeyWire
  • Whiteypedia
Wikipedia has more than one organized page of stuff like this. Weird.
Also, after a brief post-post scan, JewTube actually exists! OMG.

"Put the Christ back into Christmas," say some signs and people this time of year. Well, when you see 'Xmas', is it really gone? Although the English word 'Christ' is missing, the 'X' is still there, standing in for it. "How can it be?" you say. "You blasphemous blogginbugger!" In my defense, and the defense of those assaulted by a PuttheChristbackinner, I submit to you these facts:

Note the prominent X & P, or 'labarum'.

  • X and XP have long served as an abbreviation of Christ's name (what does this say about Windows?)
  • X is really the first letter of the word Xtos (ΧΡΙΣΤΟΣ), which in Greek is the word for Christ
  • The Greek letter X, or 'Chi' (kye) stood for Christ
  • The belief that the "X" represents the cross on which Christ was crucified has no basis in fact, but it it still was a shape of crucifix that was used (even though it probably wasn't the shape Jesus was on), and hey... if it stands for a crucifix, that's gotta count for somethin'. I mean, Jesus!

So, perhaps don't think of 'Xmas' as a smear/deletion campaign... just a revival of olde (note the extra 'e') ways, lazy decoration, or terminological variety. I hope you've learned something new today.

This post has not been brought to you by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - The Mormons, but by new compound words and single-line quotes. And, this bitchin' sicko Christmas wallpaper.

I thought this series on Funny or Die was pretty funny. And smart... in a comedic, drunk way.

In unrelated news ('cause it's not funny), I bring up Ben Stiller. He's not funny. The Fockers stuff and the Mary movie were alright, but really... Ben Stiller is the Anti-funny. I watched Tropic Thunder last night. And by watched, I mean endured. And by endured, I mean it was on, and I tried my best to get my worth out of the rental by watching it whilst I made my Christmas wish list on the laptop. And by I tried my best to get my worth out of the rental by watching it whilst I made my Christmas wish list on the laptop, I mean I'm glad I had something else to do, 'cause if not, I'd still be hurting from that painful non-comedy comedy. Consider this a warning. Friends don't let friends watch Stiller.
