Beavers Rip Trojans!

Of course, I'm talking about the USC football game (or as Deadspin termed it, Innuendo Bowl LXXI,) and I'm just immature enough to think that headline is funny...

Circus in Town Album

Circus in Town! Flee while you can!

From the enclosed booklet: "Gee, it almost takes our breath away when we think of the old time circus that our childhood knew and loved. From the time that the gaudy posters heralded the coming of that circus we were on the tiptoe of expectancy."

Dear reader, I don't want to leave you on the tiptoe of expectancy, so let's jump ahead a few pages: "The country girls, their finery crumpled by the long day in town, blushed when some old farmer teasingly bantered the awkward young escorts. And then--the grand entry! Do you remember how the next hour thrilled you and how it danced by on feet that seemed shod with fairy wings?"

Don't know how they make shoes out of fairy wings, but I think I'd like to watch.

Walking on the Skies

I was just in the Phoenix airport, and noticed that the carpet has little airplanes on it. Maybe I'm just a total geek, but I thought it was kinda cool...nice attention to detail! And I think the circles represent the radar from the control tower...even cooler. Although it's certainly possible that, rather than that, each plane is spiraling into a vortex of doom. Not such a happy carpet after all, maybe...

This is what it looks like...

...when you try to take a picture with of your dog with a cameraphone and drive at the same time...

Far Out Band

These musicians came all the way from some distant galaxy to entertain us with their unearthly tunes. I think I saw this in an episode of "X-Files" once. Are they wearing spacesuits or armor? Anyway, I'd love to know if there are more members of this band, but these are the only two I've ever found. Use the magic of imagination to hear the music they might be making. (No, it does NOT sound like the cantina scene in Star Wars!)
