Other Random Things about super rats

  • I usually do these figure pictorials late at night, so I’m usually listening to Coast to Coast AM with George Noory while processing .JPG files. It’s interesting, though I wonder how George Noory can sit there without laughing sometimes.
  • A pretty big talk radio junkie.
  • Favorite authors include Raymond Carver, J.D. Salinger, Jerzy Kosinski, Harlan Ellison, William Faulkner and Charles Bukowski.
  • Music I’ve liked forever, U2, Saint Etienne, Bjork, Pavement, Jeff Buckley, Sonic Youth, and The Counting Crows. Muse should be on there too, but I only jumped on that bandwagon in 2007.
  • Bacon Cheeseburger > Sushi.
  • Am a big fan of the USA.

    Hi, I have a request. I am pretty new to WordPress and I am trying to setup my schoolclass blog. It is almost finished, the only thing I want to do is to customize the photoalbum-albums-highlight.html etc etc in the Flickr tool.

    I want to have a layout like yours, but I can never do that because of my lack of skills.

    Can you please mail me your customised photoalbum-albums-*.html files so that I can get a step further and to learn something new?

    Hi ,I just want to say thanks for this interesting thread about Day 6 |! Regards, Geburtstag

    I am a ex 2 pack a day or more smoker. I have been smoke free for two months, now. This is the longest I have gone in 22 years of smoking. Last record was 2 days. No more wheezing, have better lung capacity, taste and smell senses have improved dramatically. I now am in the process of weening myself off of E-Cigs and have been making great progress at it. It seems nicotine without all the chemicals is less addictive, at least in my case it is. This in my eyes is the greatest product I have ever purchased in my life. It has given me a new lease on it to boot. This product has changed my life forever. Please by all means contact me if you would like to hear more, and the whole story, as I have been keeping track of it.

    I think what you published made a great deal of sense.
    But, what about this? suppose you typed a catchier post title?
    I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t good., but suppose you added a headline that makes people desire
    more? I mean About is a little vanilla. You could look at Yahoo’s front page
    and see how they create article headlines to get people
    to click. You might add a related video or a picture or two to
    get readers excited about everything’ve written. Just my opinion,
    it would bring your blog a little livelier.
