  • If you thought those mice with human ears growing outta their backs were strange, check this out. Hey it's Friday. Eat me.

  • Went to go see Nice Cat. I missed half their set, but what I saw was awesome. Not only are they 100% rawkin', they are sassy as fuck.

  • It's my goddamn birthday, and I just turned 30. Shit! Thanks to everyone who said I don't look my age. I'm certainly trying not to act it.

    General Mills launched their "Millenios" cereal today.
    Dick Clark did the unveiling.

  • Right near Dick's head you can see "9-9-99". My birthday marks the beginning of the end of intelligent marketing decisions. So sayeth I.

    I'm pretty sure all of the glaring mistakes in my site have been finished. My project for this Sunday will be to revive the HTML version so Flash-impaired peeps have something to look at.

    Just realized that the Flash 3 Player will *sort of* run the site. There are problems with Flash 3, obviously. Also just discovered my Gallery directory seems to be corrupt. One image in particular is causing crashes. It's the first one in "ZAP".

    Added a Links section to Who Da Man. Two paths from there. One to my shorter links page, one to my longer one. I actually dumped all my bookmarks from Netscape as a file, then tweaked it a bit. Some huge-ass files.

    Added content to the Gallery section. The SWF file is about 100k, so it's a little longer to download. I went crazy scanning and processing shit, so came up with a nice little retrospective on my work. Enjoy :)

    Cleaning up a bunch of problems. Added the Jacob Two Two site to Now Playing.

    STUPID SERVER CACHES causing problems with my site development. Anyone using sympatico high-speed edition (spits) may have some interesting experiences with my Flash pages, as any changes I make are not enacted for about 24 hours or some such shit.
