I Never Promised You a Shotgun

But I'm going to give you one anyway:

  • Mind the Blox (game,flash)
    • A cute twist on a familiar game idea.
  • The "Blog" of "Unnecessary" Quotation Marks (grammar,blog)
    • Someone has a punctuation fixation. Haven't we all had a little urge to start a blog like this?
  • Cake Wrecks (cake,food,blog)
    • Bull sent along this blog of failed cakes. in other words, cakes with the same success as the Bush foreign policy (my metaphor, not his).
  • Geeky Cake Designs (food,cake,pictures)
    • More cake - It's geeky cakes. Cake for geeks. You know, food for nerds.
  • YouTube - Fly To Paradise (Al Paradise) (dancing,80's,video)
    • Our foreign video of the week is a flashback to 80's dancing. Also proves that just because you CAN dance a certain way, doesn't mean you should.
  • TMBW: The They Might Be Giants Knowledge Base (music,reference,wiki)
    • Did you ever wonder *anything* about a They Might Be Giants song? This is the place to don't let's start.

BAFAB card This week was BAFAB (Buy an Friend a Book) Week! I am a little late, but there's still time to buy a book for a friend, and I did just that this morning (Though I won't be able to give him the book until next week).

You can follow BAFAB on Twitter if you want a reminder in January to buy or give a friend a book.

I've started reading "The Singularity is Near" -- and thank you Chuck for sending me that book over the summer. It turns out they're making it into a movie, so I need to get cracking and read the book!

[Updated] Also, I had a post today on Regime Turnover declaring the basis by which we can conclude Sarah Palin does have what it takes to be VP!

[LATE ADDITION!] Kung-Fu Election - Play out the election Mortak Kombat style. Warning, violence and blood dominate this interactive game.

Finally, enjoy this Bourne Ultimatum parody that @wisekaren tweeted.

Loved Kung Fu Election! And I would be remiss if I did not call out my wife Sarah for showing me the cake wreck blog.

I enjoyed the "quotes" site and the cake site.

The cake site reminded me of this:
