It's alright, it's alright, it's alright, yeah
Now Playing: 'Lonesome Day' by Springsteen
Angelfire doesn't offer nearly enough mood options.
The banner at the top of the page was submitted by "Anonymous" via a comment thread further down this page. I still think they should anonymously e-mail me so at least I know who they are, so I can think of them as being that much cooler.
Alright, let's halfway launch this new interactive thing. It's not up to it's full power (or full look yet), but here we go... the Andy Online BB
! That's right, your very own message board. It's there for you to talk with me and talk with each other. Give me feedback. Let me know how great the latest Book entry was, or how much it sucks because I didn't do it again. Participate in the latest Five by Five. Recommend an album (or a cereal) for me to review. Invite your friends! Let's make this a success!This Book Will Change Andy's Life
has been updated with Day Ninety-Three (Humility Day), Benrik's third Flashmob, and details on my quest to get Books-A-Million to be Book-compliant.
It's a double update in the Five by Five
, as I do the Friday Five (sorta) and I give you a rundown of my favorite t-shirts.
Naturally because there's that new banner, the Banner Bonanza
(on second thought, I don't like that name anymore) has been updated. You are always welcome to submit a banner! There's plenty of ideas listed on the banner page (well, the second page of it). I'd love some more Norah, and I'd probably fall over dead if someone brought me a good lookin' Michelle Branch banner. And hey, I'm all about Dr. Zoidberg on Futurama these days.
There are four or five new shots in Photos That Didn't Make The Cut #2
. Nothing exciting, really. Just as an FYI, there will be no new original Andy pictures for the next week, as I've loaned my camera to the family for use on their vacation. They better bring me something back this time, darn it. :)
And now, the news and links that I haven't brought you in forever. Hence the long entry.
The voice actors for "The Simpsons" are on strike
, which could end season sixteen early. They're asking for about $360,000 per episode (or about $8 million for a season), as they currently bring in $125,000 each an episode.
I think the yawning boy
behind Bush is great. Bush, and the kid's supposed support of Bush... not so much.
The solution was there all along... police can solve crmes with bananas
's the link I've mentioned to a few people that gives you the names of people in your town (neighbors, at that) and who they've given campaign donations to in your town. It's also an easy way to find out celebrity addresses, if you're a stalker.
X-Entertainment takes a look at the classic action figure that was Krang's body
! I had this (and possibly still do in a box somewhere). It was one of the best figures ever.
Here's a nice little article
on Tracks magazine, probably my favorite of the new music magazines. It makes me feel really old though, as it talks about the artists in it appealing to "boomers." Strange how I like most of these artists and I'm an ancient 23 (no hair jokes).
Lollapalooza is hitting the road again with a two-day format
this year. I do like two of the artists announced (Flaming Lips, String Cheese Incident) thus far.
Friday's Pearls Before Swine
is great, if nothing else just because it found a way to get the "mother" comment in newspapers.
