Let me boil down the interests meme for you: my rare interests are 32 hour work week, a.r.luria, crappy beer, diverticulitis, dramtreeo, fighting subtle evil subtly, flannel-lined jeans, ford aspire, handling sin, mmpi, norfolk academy, richard jury, seventies decor, teeko and muffin, and wide nib pens. Runners up: atari 800, port salut, whquestion, robo rally.

Yesterday was pajamas and video games day. OK I did some tidying and filing in the "office" at home. But other than that, pizza, sweats, and diablo ii.

I keep trying to get Jack to make a photojournal of how awesome I am, but he hasn't even started yet. Jeez!
Very related: everyone Soft Ah John! I don't think I enjoyed him on Crossfire as much as everyone else did, but this is too awesome and smile-making not to pass on.

Has Dramtreeo put out anything recently? And do they have CDs of their early stuff? My tapes are long dead, but the one CD I have of theirs gets play.....

I have no idea, but I'd pay ALOT for CDs of the original stuff.

They are still around. I noticed an ad for one of their shows a couple of weeks ago.

Re: Dramtreo
Ooh! I should come down, and when I do, see one of their shows.

although, the tour dates on this web page are from 2001, so...
Oct. 19th, 2004 04:29 pm (UTC)
Cool! Yeah, a call might be in order. Or maybe that MP3 store will be a good reason for me to finally move from CDs to mp3s in my musical stylings. I still don't have an mp3 player.....

I wish the icon didn't have the words. Otherwise, I'd swipe it. SWIPE.

Well, the creator's on my friends list, and might oblige with the base, but she might not want to compromise the special message. :)

Totally just found this on accident:


from this (a little scary) site:

I have a functioning Atari 800XL and about 50 floppies full of code, but no working disk drive. I wish I knew someone who could read the disks - some of that code I'm pretty proud of :)
Oct. 20th, 2004 02:34 am (UTC)
Oooh. Mine did not have a floppy drive attached, but we did have a tape drive, on which I always played Jumpman. *sigh* I remember always loading the tape during dinner, and halfway through dinner I'd run out and load the other side of the tape so I could play after dinner.

Oh wow. I leaned to program on oneo f those old atari's.

The crossfire appearance was odd. He's entered the land of Andy Kaufman. My hope is that this is not a sign of spectacular self destrution.

I just wait to see what happens tonight.

Oh, lone interest "Parrott Fashion Love"

I learned to program in basic on an atari 800. :)

Crossfire: I kept thinking, when is he going to get to the substance?

Parrot Fashion Love: hexcellent. I need to go back and make icons from the old harlequin video clips.

I learned about piracy on my Atari 800 ;) Also hacking and phreaking once I got my 300 baud modem and hit the local BBS's!

A friend of mine and I (and his father) actually took a course in assembly language programming on the Atari 800. Player/missile graphics, ANTIC, oh boy, lots of fun stuff.

My friend Mark's father was a UMCP Calculus teacher, so he knew all about the book writing scam, so he wrote this book. I wrote some games for Atari magazines, including this game I wrote for COMPUTE!.

I remember the sad day I sold my Atari 800 + floppy drive, probably 1989 at a hamfest outside of Baltimore.

John Stewart is so hot. It is too bad he is only 5'7".
Oct. 19th, 2004 03:21 am (UTC)
I don't see how this lessens his hotness. Especially as it is his brain which makes him hot!
Oct. 19th, 2004 04:13 am (UTC)
I am 6'4", so I have a slightly skewed perception of the world.
Oct. 19th, 2004 01:35 pm (UTC)
5'7" men are hot! And you'd be amazed at how many movie stars are shorter than that...
Oct. 19th, 2004 02:46 pm (UTC)
Agreed, said the partner of the hottest short man EVER.
Oct. 19th, 2004 03:10 pm (UTC)
And just to confuse people, we lovers of hot short men will keep using the same icon.
Oct. 20th, 2004 11:31 am (UTC)
I have been well-known for my dislike of movie stars! They have too much admiration, it goes to their head and drug problems come out. It's an amazingly tight equation!

I may have to agree with you that the short guys seem to be cuter. Alas!
