WXYC Fridays (6-9pm) (+ 1) July 2012

Hmmmmm.  Still not entering these in a timely fashion.  Being three weeks behind is more punctual than being three months behind, regardless.  Actually, I’m not totally late, since I’m posting this on Wednesday night: I haven’t done the 27 July show yet, which means that link’ll be dead till the show is done.

WXYC Fridays (6-9pm) (+ a couple on the side) May & June 2012

The home stretch of gettin’ caught up, light at the end o’the tunnel, a’ that.

Intersession was technically 4 May – 18 May, plus the 3-9am shifts through 25 May; I also filled an abandoned 3am shift at the end of June. Here they are…

Wow.  That’s it!  All caught up!  I canny believe it!  Damned near a full year of catching up, tho’ I did start trying to fix it in May.  Now we’ll all find out if I can at least keep current with the text links to the setlists on a show-by-show basis, as I used to do.  My intention, but I know better than to make promises!

…and as always, thanks fer callin’, thanks fer lissnin’!

Turn-of-the-century Internet Quiz Collection

Rediscovered this amidst my saved geocities webpages, from before they shut the free bit down…

See, I took some survey today on the PBS site that, despite pretending to be somehow “official” or “legitimate,” reminded me of the White Trash Quiz. I wanted to share the nostalgia trip with my facebook friends, so I uploaded the html here: Sadly all the links to the associated images are dead and gone, but the alt text (in red) survives. You can grab the urls for the tests and see them on the wayback machine, but I don’t think you can take the tests to get scores via wayback archive. If ya never saw it back in the day, you can at least find the questions involved, if ya fancy.

Ah, the good ol’ kindergarten days of the internet. When you could easily take goofy “personality quizzes” without them ever being directly associated with your name, address, SSN, mother’s maiden name, the name of your favorite pet, or your professional life.

Dig that nostalgia, man!

The “Online Test” Wall of Shame

I am 24% Idiot.
Friggin Genius

I am not annoying at all. In fact most people come to me for advice. Of course they annoy the hell out of me. But what can I do? I am smarter than most people.

I am 71% Evil Genius.

Evil courses through my blood. I delight in crushing the weaklings and idiots that do nothing but interfere in my doings.

I am 45% Geek.
Geek? Yes, but at least I got social skills.

You probably work in computers, or a sociology or history department at a college. You never really fit in with the “normal” crowd. But you have friends, and this is a good thing.

I am 16% White Trash.
Not at all White Trashy!

I, my friend, have class. I am so not white trash. I am more than likely Democrat, and my place is neat, and there is a good chance I may never drink wine from a box.

I am 18% Emo.
Anti-Emo  ...hrmph.

Okay… so I’m not emo at all.. I am probably not even goth, because goths are just messed up emo kids… I am probably a metal head… or into boy bands…

I am 35% Metal Head.
Sorta Metal.

Most other metal-heads acknowledge my presence, but they laugh at me behind my back. Maybe I need to stop spending all that money on haircuts and invest in a few Pantera T-shirts.

I am 55% Grunge.
Grunge as Hell!

I am pretty dirty, all right and, I reek of teen spirit… I would sell my own children for a moldy hotpocket, man.

I am 62% Raver.
Quite the Raver!

I may not be freaky like those Candy Kids, but I do know how to party. I am well connected in the scene, but may be getting a little tired of it.

I am 39% Goth.
Slave to Goth.

Goth by night, normal by day. Deep in my heart I know I am evil, but not on the company’s time. I do need to eat.

I am 55% Tortured Artist.
My life is a piece of Art, and I live and create it!

Art is significant in my life, people are scum but I have the capicity to deal with it. Give it a few more years and I will either forget about art or hate the world.
