I guess the mysterious female EHS alum (from my guestbook) with the "decent or more than decent" sense of humor gave up on me. Maybe she was upset I didn't rattle off her name in my initial guess...
Link of the Moment
This flash video isn't quite as amusing as it thinks it is, but months after I saw it I still think of it from time to time. It's the Mario Twins! ("Good god they looks so god damn like the same person. I would say to them you want ice cream cones, both of them say yes.") It's animation to go with 2 guys (with a drummer and sometimes a bass) singing the themes and sound effects from the game, it's amusingly homebrew sounding, and has a big "oh yeah...I remember that part!" factor for anyone who grew up playing Super Mario Brothers on the NES.
Quote of the Moment
Sturgeon's Law: "Ninety percent of everything is crap."
(Dennett quoted this the other night, in response to Peterman's question, I think it addresses people who would apply meme theory to everything.)
