800 pounds of stingray

tcr! · Mar 13, 2015 at 1:48 pm

Giant 14ft, 800lb stingray is biggest freshwater fish caught with rod

A stingray weighing nearly 800lb has become the largest freshwater fish ever caught by rod and line.

The gigantic flat fish, which was 8ft wide and 14ft long, took nearly two hours to reel in.

It was caught by American TV nature conservationist Jeff Corwin on the Mae Klong river in Thailand earlier this week.

City of St. Charles: Send out the street cleaners.
Me: It’s rush hour, you twit.

Colonial Cafe: Change the marquee to “Lobster Mac n Cheese”
Me: For breakfast? Another twit.

Work Landlord: Put dumpsters at the end of the parking lot so he sees them every time he looks out the window. And make sure trash is hanging out.
Me: It’s FINE, I’ll look at them.

dumpster out the window

Some days, peeps, I’m just not feeling it.

Happy Friday the 13th — get your machete on.

It could be worse though — at least my window opens.

I remember when I worked at MSFT none of them opened. I asked somebody why they didn’t and he said, “Bad idea, everybody would jump.”

Feist live on a city bus

tcr! · Mar 12, 2015 at 3:50 pm

Peeps, I normally don’t like this genre but I do love everything about this.

I feel it all, I feel it all, I feel it all, I feel it all
The wings are wide, the wings are wide
Wild card inside, wild card inside

Ooh, I’ll be the one who’ll break my heart
I’ll be the one to hold the gun

I know more than I knew before
I know more than I knew before
I didn’t rest, I didn’t stop
Did we fight or did we talk?

Ooh, I’ll be the one who’ll break my heart
I’ll be the one to hold the gun

I love you more, I love you more
I don’t know what I knew before
But now I know I wanna win the war

No one likes to take a test
Sometimes you know more is less
Put your weight against the door
Kick drum on the basement floor

Stranded in the fog of words
Loved him like the winter bird
On my head the water pours
Gulf stream through the open door
Fly away, fly away to what you wanna make

I feel it all, I feel it all, I feel it all, I feel it all
The wings are wide, the wings are wide
Wild card inside, wild card inside

Ooh, I’ll be the one to break my heart
I’ll be the one who’ll break my heart
I’ll be the one who’ll break my heart
I’ll end it, though you started it

The truth lies
The truth lied
No one knows

And lies divide
Lies divide

Who lies on sheets of ice? Who pays 4 paradise? After the reign-after the rain. Who took the gold from their’ teeth? Who takes the ancient masterpiece? After the rain-after the reign…I always wondered how AC spelled that cause n verses it sounds like Nazi shenanigans but the chorus sound like raining-think it was about both craftily intertwined.

I cannot stand it when my finger nails are uneven and will file them until they are.
DON’T TELL ME THAT I’M THE ONLY ONE.

iTunes, you never fail to irritate me

tcr! · Mar 11, 2015 at 1:57 pm

itunes you never fail to irritate me

Along with the regular Sign In prompts, this new one has punched me, over…and…over today. It’s almost like they don’t want people to use it.

And I wouldn’t if it weren’t for iTunes Match that syncs everything to my iPhone auto-magically. That actually does work — my playlists, music, etc. all just work on my iPhone and I don’t have to do anything.

But I tell ya, the hell that is iTunes Store.

Apple’s got the new MacBook Pros listed

tcr! · Mar 10, 2015 at 10:21 am

Apple - MacBook Pro

Apple - MacBook Pro

With the latest-generation Intel processors, all-new graphics, and faster flash storage, MacBook Pro moves further ahead in power and performance.

Whenever Apple comes out with a new MacBook I always…

  1. go to their site
  2. spec one out with the best of everything
  3. see what I don’t get to buy

Youtube Ditches Flash, and it Hardly Matters

Which brings us back to Youtube. Now, you can access all of Youtube videos without having to use Adobe’s proprietary software, so long as your browser supports the W3C’s version of Adobe’s proprietary software. If you’re using Firefox, you can access all of Youtube’s videos without Flash, except that in some cases, you’ll need their version of the W3C-standardized “Encrypted Media Extension”—which requires that you use proprietary software. From Adobe.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

Online video is coming along but it’s still a proprietary pain in the sass.

i don’t know why i was so surprised to see you quote the classic rock masterpiece, “Won’t Get Fooled Again”.
pete townsend must of have got a synthesizer for christmas that year. he wrote the album which heavily relied on the new little toy. imo it hasn’t been so masterfully handled since.
