A sad happy birthday to River Phoenix, who would have been 47 today. Died too soon.

That moment when you're binge-watching the first two seasons of "Thomas the Tank Engine," and you realize you're watching a show aimed at you children. And yet, I still can't stop watching it, 'cause it's so good. At least the first two seasons.

    Haha. I remember that Thomas theme song. I was actually lucky (being born in 1997) to actually have some VHS tapes of episodes from the first two seasons (which were from the eighties), as well as renting episodes from the first two seasons from the library. Although I saw the newer episodes on TV all the time as a kid, I don't remember the plots of them at all, because they just weren't as good. No one beats Ringo Starr as the narrator, and nothing beats the original theme song from...

    ...the first few seasons. And of course the combination of animatronics and stop-motion beats the modern CGI episodes any day (not that there's anything wrong with CGI of course).

    Though of course this is all just my opinion, as I know a lot of people that enjoy every Thomas episode ever made, and I don't really see why they can't enjoy them, as the newer episodes aren't bad by any means.

    Clouds here. And my location in MidMO means we don't get to see 100% anyway. :(

    Wow. What a long and productive run. I used to watch the telethon with my late cousin. We would make sheet "forts" and try to stay up for the whole thing.

    Question: Will he get back together with Dean Martin for a heavenly comedy show?

    RIP to them both.

When did eBay sellers start adding "Launch Edition" to every loose console listing? Here's a white "launch edition" Wii. Look at that gray "launch edition" Jaguar. How about a yellowing "launch edition" SNES? Gimme a flippin' break.

    It's because that is how eBay has renamed them in their database. It's eBay, not the sellers.

    As long as weather holds out we plan on it. Our grocery store is even shutting down for it. Not sure about other locals. In metropolis below us all hotel rooms have been filled at four hundred a room. Crazy stuff.
