More Than Words

Notes on "Sweet Child O' Mine" as Delivered to Axl Rose by his Editor
She’s got a smile that, it seems to me—Why equivocate? You weaken your point by framing this as a mere personal observation instead of a fact.

Reminds me of childhood memories—Redundant. You either have a memory or you’re reminded of something. You’re not reminded of a memory. Heavy-metal fans won’t stand for such writing, my friend.

Classic rock lyrics obfuscated in verbose and scholarly language. Take the quiz

Grammar Rock I

Mr. Morton, one of the Schoolhouse Rock series covering grammar, this one having to do with subjects and predicates. I thought I had seen all these growing up, but this one must have escaped my notice (until today).

If You're Happy and You Know It...

...well, your sentient mohawk will know what to do. The commercial is for Gatsby, a line of hair gels and waxes popular in Asia. (via Copyranter)

No relation to Jon Secada

It's summer (in my half of the world) and our backyard has its fair share of cicadas, making that one-of-a-kind sound.

What this deranged individual is holding is a member of the largest cicada species in the world, the Malaysian Empress Cicada, which has a wingspan of 8 inches(!)

Your dress code said "Tie Required". It didn't say anything about a shirt. Or pants.

Ever wonder why a lot of Hanna Barbera cartoon characters have a collar and tie, but no shirt? This is why.

Rumination Nation

Some Deep Thoughts® from some reader submissions at Ruminations. People enter their pithy (or pissy) observations and everyone votes on the best ones. Here were some that made me giggle like a schoolgirl trapped in a nitrous factory:

"While driving yesterday I saw a banana peel in the road and instinctively swerved to avoid it...thanks Mario Kart. "

"I tend to think love would be a lot more efficient if Cupid replaced his bow and arrow with a sniper rifle. We need some accuracy up in this bitch."

"The supreme court is just like regular court except it has tomatoes and sour cream. This is correct?"

"I have a hard time believing there was a time in my life that I had to be coaxed to finish my entire plate of food."

"Wow! Its a beautiful day outside! I probably should do something productive, like get up and shut my blinds to stop the glare on my television set." (via Ned Hardy)
