This is the corniest thing I have ever seen.

I knew all that Symbionese Liberation Army stuff and the bank robbery, etc., but I had no idea that Patty Hearst appeared on Pete and Pete as “Mrs. Kretchmar, the nicest housewife in the world.” (as per wikipedia).
She has starred in a lot of stuff, actually. Like Bio-Dome. And Veronica Mars, as this quasi-real version of herself during the college years (the fictional college’s name was even Hearst College).
The Beatles are so awesome. Even though this print is kind of bleached out, it doesn’t even matter…
I wrote a book called Tunnel. My brother Nick made the cover above these words, and my wife Leslie edited it. I have mentioned the fact that I published this on Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook in other social media networks, but not this one yet. I feel like I always disrespect tumblr. - but I do not mean to!
Here is Tunnel on Amazon - http://
And here is Tunnel on Barnes and Noble - http://bit.ly/14upWFB
It will be available in print soon. God bless and good night!
That’s how strong my love is
After my last few posts, I wasn’t sure if I should do one on the planets or on the presidents. So I compromised, and typed “George Washington in Space” into Google. This is what it came up with.
The turquoise sea-horse horse that he is riding on seems perfect for orbiting the Earth. I’m sure he saw a really interesting view of our volcanos and oceans and mountains and deserts and Boise, Idaho’s. Also, I can see why the dollar is the dominant currency. When he was President, it was 1789-1797. That is 224 years ago to 216 years ago. That’s almost a fucking bicenquinquagenary! Okay, I wanted to name the anniversary that celebrates the 225th year, but there is no such word apparently. Here is a great message board by The Straight Dope that details it further:
Anyways, that’s a long fucking time ago. It’s funny how nothing seems real from way back then. Kinda like how the Earth wasn’t real until us humans started talking about it and riding sea-horses over it.
Lincoln was long and boring, and I would even say at times it was even incoherent because it was trying to be too profound. Did Daniel Day Lewis transform into Honest Abe? Yes and very convincingly. But I think he did so at the cost of the actual story. In fact, the only thing Lincoln did as a character was tell stories to other characters. He had no arc whatsoever and no real traits other than yarn-spinner. Tommy Lee Jones played his character so obtusely that I didn’t even understand what he stood for. At first he seemed to hate the slaves, then he liked them, then he didn’t so he could act like he did. Fuck him. Mary Todd Lincoln was a mixture of crazy for a second and totally competent behind-the-scenes wheeler and dealer. The Civil War was more or less glossed over in favor of focusing on the 13th amendment, which while it is an exceedingly important amendment…
When the high point of the movie is a 10-minute long vote in the House - that isn’t cool, that sucks. And it was way too long of a movie. Spielberg can make good movies, but Lincoln is not one of them.
PS - I know this post is like a year past when it should have been made, but I just saw it and got ANGRY grrrrrrr
I crack my Jupiter open but I don’t know why. To see what’s inside, I guess…
It appears there’s a mysterious treat at the center. I’m thinking www.universetoday.com has a clue to help me figure this one out. It’s today, and I am in the universe afterall. They say that “based on gravitational measurements compared with Earth’s, the best educated guesses possible based on those measurements say there is no solid core.”
These measurements sound interesting, and they make me think this soup will be delicious. I’m grabbing my galactic spoon and digging in. You are welcome to join me.
Poor disregarded Pluto. In my youth, it was my favorite planet. That may have had more to do with the Disney dog than the planet, but as I grew older I came to have more affinity towards the glob of ice itself. We all know that is has been unceremoniously stripped of its title of “ninth planet from the sun,” but what else do we know about it?
Gleaning some facts from www.space.com, compared to the orbit’s of the other planets, Pluto’s is kind of weird. In fact, it is “highly eccentric, or far from circular, which means its distance from the sun can vary considerably and at times…[causes] surface ices to thaw and temporarily form a thin atmosphere” when it is closest to the sun. No other planet does that! How cool (pun intended). Furthermore, Pluto’s “rotation is retrograde compared to the other worlds.” So not only does it shapeshift, it also marches to the beat of its own drum.
It’s almost like Pluto doesn’t even want to be included as a major planet. It would prefer to take its five moons and hang with the hip cats of the Kuiper Belt and gauge things from afar. And that’s what I like about it.
I am feeling kind of guilty. I have been forsaking my tumblr account in favor of my twitter account. Apparently I do not have the mind capacity to handle both at once while still using the facebook.
I’m sorry tumblr. I still care for you deeply, but I think we might be taking a break again. Twitter is just a little more sexy.
For now, I’ll be @prettyponytime. Chao for now!
