er: the end of an era.

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

Wow. I guess I hadn’t realized just how long er had been on as a show, until the retrospective and final episode. I was still a teenager, still in my parents’ house–Thursday nights through high school and college. Episodes that made me laugh my head off or bawl my eyes out.

Sunday, November 23rd, 2008

First things first–if you’re in Second Life, I highly recommend you avoid any land rentals from:

Xael Aeon
Rainbow Estate Land Sales
Communal Waters

Here’s why:
The short version: Xael Aeon is a greedy asshole.
The long version:

Wow, that Duggar post just keeps on going. And when I think it can’t possibly get more nutty…. it does.
Hee. I love that Duggar post.

Guitar repertoire and 300

Friday, April 6th, 2007

Wish you were here (pink floyd)
Belief (john mayer)
blue skies (pink floyd)
