Tornadoes don't sound like trains: I always think of trains in a fun and romantic kind of way. As a boy, I had model train sets. At Christmas time, lots of people have Train sets running around the Christmas tree. Also a lot of kids are gravitated to trains. They are fascinating pieces of our past. Tornadoes sound nothing like them. Tornadoes sound like hideous monsters that are here to blow your house down. Tornadoes sound nothing like Thomas the Tank.

steampunk Pilot: I had a bunch of fun with this. Looking back to the works of H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, Mary Shelly, Robert Louis Stevenson, Edgar Rice Burroughs. It appears to be a mix of Victorian, beginnings of the industrial revolution, maybe a pinch of the Western explorers, and maybe a touch of Goth if you wish. I have also seen a pinch of Mad Max / Tank Girl mixed in on an occasion.

Microsoft Signs Seinfeld: In the up hill climb out of the pit that is Vista-Lore, Microsoft has hired Jerry Seinfeld as their spokesperson. Can the "what's up with that?" fellow put a positive spin on the old fogey Microsoft? Can Jerry overpower the wave of dread that Vista's name brings with it? or will there be a new character made... the apple nazi? NO IPHONE FOR YOU!!!!

Bigfoot Hoax: When I saw this in the news a week or so ago, it was just too good to be true. And not because I may not or may believe in some thing lurking. I thought the idea of two guys freezing an ape suit in ice and calling some "expert"... expert? in to validate their findings. Where did they get this guy? What were his credentials? I mean other than him pointing to his chest and stating, "this is me". When I read what they had done, I thought... didn't I see this in a cartoon once? Some caveman brought back to life from being frozen in ice? Ah the workings of the criminal mind.

Drawergeeks: Topic... Genie, yes as in Aladdin's lamp Genie, or I dream of Jeannie. So, as I am finding... I do better with open ended topics. The Icons I really have trouble with. When I get into an area where there is a bit of breathing room, I am much more at ease. It also helps when there are a multitude of subtopics to bring along for the ride. It keeps one from sinking too quickly. Oh, I can pile on too much and plummet really quickly, but I have a fighting chance to edit my way out of it.
