The newly changed quote above should tell you about what needs to be said about the service I’ve been getting from monrotel lately, which hasn’t been much. Granted, some of it isn’t their fault, but that doesn’t make having 5 minutes of internet in every 15 much better. On a totally random other note: TontoMarius: (Quoting an ICQ to Whir) You know, some of these spam comments Regina gets are kind of amusing. But always I shall guard against the unmistakable and insatiate lobster gram, lord of sleep, against the night sky, and against the unmarried maine lobster of knowledge and philosophy. Shall I say that the voice was deep, hollow, absent-minded, isolated, unreflective, coy, yelped? None could tell just […]

Screw coherency. Let’s just randomly think about things. I’m not sure what I think, for example, about either the new Nine Inch Nails or the new Audioslave songs, which are certainly different. I don’t think I remember when either one is coming out, either, but I should probably fix that. I DO think that having radio stations that play Lake of Fire are good, but to return to Audioslave, I wish they’d play something besides Like A Stone, because honestly, there’s about 10 other tracks on that album that are better. OTOH, consistent playing of Tonight, Tonight is ok, and playing Zero is ok too. I think I have Megatokyo Book 3 on my desk, and I think that’s cool. […]

I was actually going to say some things, but instead I’ll just post this email from Suzanne, and let it go at that. I don’t know. I really don’t. No, wait, I do. It’s because your warped mind sometimes spits out these images that scream “draw me!”, and if nothing else, I’m one for listening to the non-corporal voices. Ok, that and another one of my lectures got cancelled today. None the less, rare it is that I giggle so much when I’m drawing. For this, I have you to thank. HAHAHAHAHA. and guess what song just came up on my playlist? “Golden Retriever” by.. wait for it.. “the Super Furry Animals”. Dear god I’m tired. Here ya go, hope […]

(Talking about the SATs) starflier06: On the test, there were these 2 questions starflier06: One was a “find what’s wrong with this sentence” starflier06: and talked about roots starflier06: the other was a math problem starflier06: which dealt with increase in squirrel populations starflier06: So clearly the squirrel aliens are gaining influence over at ETS. TontoMarius: Woot. (and on a totally other note) starflier06: Still working on the parentals, btw TontoMarius: *nod* starflier06: The gist of it is this: were you female, under 20, flamingly gay, or a eunuch, there would be no problem. Since you are, I told them, AFAIK, none of these things, they’re still considering. TontoMarius: *laugh* starflier06: I thought you’d find that amusing.

Exceedingly long-time readers and/or Tonto members will remember Marius’ Rants of the Day, posted to the Tonto boards at random intervals over the course of about two years, from 9/00 to 12/02 or thereabouts. Somewhere in there, and I’m going to call it about December of ’02 or maybe January ’03, Whir decided that I ought to have my own blog. “Bah,” I said to him. “I’ll NEVER be able to generate this much amusing crap on a daily basis. It’ll never work!” And there I sat for a few months, because as my mother would love to tell you, I am exceedingly stubborn when I have the mind to be, especially about tech sorts of things. I was, after […]

So tonight’s random entertainment is like this: 1. Open up Acrobat Reader. Make sure you have the latest version. 2. Open up some sort of text PDF. If it’s one with a lot of screwy words/slang, foreign languages, or both, so much the better. 3. Go to the View menu, find Read Out Loud, and have at it. “Blood Spirit PraaaaaahtoMech Pilot” Whee. Too bad I’m still sick.
