it ain't over till the fat ladies sing

Martha Wash and Izora Rhodes will let you have it!

Two Tons of Fun or Two Tons of Perfection?!

Martha and Izora were Sylvester's back-up singers on hits like You Make Me Feel.

Poor Izora passed away in 2004... R.I.P.

I feel that fire, Martha.

talk to me.. like computers do

I love to hear computers talk.

As a kid I used spend hours programming my Apple IIe to say things like "Bo Hyatt is the antichrist". Bo Hyatt was one of the metal heads in my town... I could never get the phonetics down quite right... it always ended up sounding like "Bo He-it izzz dee antee kreest".

I was also scared shitless by Wargames. Anything that had to do with the potential apocolypse thrilled and horrified me. The Day After.. Testament... you get the picture. JOSHUA the talking computer was the best ever... "Would you like to play a game?"... ummm... yes, please.. howsabout we play fantasize about Matthew Broderick naked, JOSHUA?

And when talking about talking computers, how can we forget HAL9000? Methinks that the mp3 below may have been an inspiration for Mr. Kubrick.

Anyhoo -- I stumbled upon this recording from Bell Telephone Labratories from the early 1960's. It's pretty brilliant.

Take a bite.

So my friend Jamie at work took this photo at last night's Yankees/Red Sox game. He sent it to me this morning and wanted to know if the guy was a bear or not. I find this hilarious on a couple of levels.

First, am I the office bear expert?? Methinks no because of the overwhelming number of bears involved with SIRIUS OutQ. Perhaps I'm just the most approachable of the bunch.

Second, have the bears ingrained themselves in pop-culture to an extent that straight boys are now wondering if the hairy chap sitting next to them at an MLB game is queer?? Fun fun!

So I told my friend that I wouldn't necissarily classify this guy as a bear. I told him that I'd probably say he was a CHUNK(MJQ and I have been obsessed with CHUNK as of late).

I can decide if it's hot or gross that he shaved the Yankees logo onto his chest. Thoughts??


i love you baby

I'd rather have a papercut on my eye

Okay. So I think I'm starting to hate Target. I tend to get really horny about certain brands and then after a while they start to lose their luster. For example, I used to be sooo into JetBlue... I thought it was such a hot company and even tried to get a job in their corporate HQ. I have two JetBlue bags and a JetBlue T-shirt. Now.. I'm not so into JetBlue... their fares aren't super cheap anymore and their frequent flyer program is sorta lame. I was wooed by their in-seat entertainment and minimal branding and the informal voice of their advertising.

MJQ hates Target... with good reason... they donate to Republican campaigns and their pharmacy won't sell RU486. I on the otherhand gush about Target like many many others in NYC. I'm over pronouncing Target all Frenchy and shit.. Tarzhay... and I can buy my adult pre-moistened baby-wipes at drugstore.com (umm... seriously, have you tried these? they will change your life).

The video above is fucked up. If you need this sorta motivation at work then you're retarded. I don't ever want my company to try to motivate me with song. Pay me more or give me a comp day or just leave me the fuck alone for twenty minutes... that's all the motivation I need.

Fast, fun and friendly!
