"Give me an hour, and I'll give you Delicious" - Dan Trenz 

Porchsleeper show Saturday at Jacoby's.

Restroom is Occupied
Get there!

Also Check out this video footage of The 'Sleeper at the Elbow Room in January.
You can see Brian really well, and my arm is kinda off in the distance at one point. Still, better than any of the footage Marty Scorsese filmed of us. Thanks ANG!


Speaking of rock, this guy makes Heavy Metal marionettes, including the stage that the rockers thrash on. In this QT video clip (takes a while to load, but you'll live) his band jams along with Motorhead's "Ace of Spades" with hilarious results.
The real best part are the shots of the guy pulling the wires and rocking out.


Great spam sender's name:
Appearance H. Agonize

Great spam subject line:

Yeah, it's the "sandwich" part that got me too.


Steve version 1.0 swears that the "Steve" of this site: Steve Don't Eat It is not him. Yeah, right. Have you seen some of the crazy crap Steve eats?

Potted Meat: "Okay, here we go-- Pulling back the lid (not recommended) lets loose an odor that punches you in the nose like a stinky fist. If you've ever smelled a can of dog food, it's just like that. Only imagine you are opening the can while your head is wedged in a horse's ass."

Beggin' Strips dog treats: "I'm sad to report that I did not run around the house yelling 'Bacon!' I did, however, run around the house yelling 'Call 911!' GodDAMN these are foul. Don't try this at home. I'm not sure it's safe, and I am sure your tongue may kill itself."

Fermented Soybeans from Japan: "The entire experience is difficult to describe, but if you can remember back to the very first time you made out with a hobo's ass, it's a lot like that."


Winnie the Pooh/Apocalypse Now re-edit from 1987.

In the Shit

"Saigon. Shit. I'm still only in Saigon."

It starts a little slow, you can fast forward into it just a little. Man is it worth it though...especially when it transposes Martin Sheen's Willard with Winnie The Pooh and Dennis Hopper's crazed photojournalist with a fidgety piglet.


The freaked out multimedia art of Larry Carlson.
Yeah, I don't get it either. I must be on the wrong drugs.


Here's William Shakespeare's Sonnet 18 ("Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?") converted into the programming language ActionScript:

         // Sonnet 18: Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
         // by William Shakespeare
         // ported to ActionScript 2.0 by Satori Canton
         // Original poem can be viewed at:

         var summer:Object = {};
         var thee:Object = {};
 = "Summer Day"; = "Thee";

         summer.lovelyness = 9;
         thee.lovelyness = 10;

         summer.temperature = 98;
         thee.temperature = 98.6;
 = new Date(2006, 7, 31).getTime() - new Date(2006, 5, 1).getTime(); = new Date(2042, 6, 12).getTime() - new Date(1970, 8, 25).getTime();

         summer.complexion = 0xFFCC33;
         thee.complexion = 0xFFCCCC;


Firefox Extensions, Tools and Google Tricks:

Extension from Kelly:

Another good Firefox extension. Bugmenot! You can use it to bypass compulsory registration on free websites (like new york times, for instance.) Go to this site and get their extension (you'll have to RIGHT click on the link and save it, then drag it into firefox because of security.) After its installed you can just right click on the sign in pages and skip registration all together. Bugmenot will sign you in with one the sign ins from their database.

Firefox Tool from Dan:

Here's something that is pretty handy. In Firefox, goto Tools - Options - Advanced - Accessibility, and check Begin Finding when you begin typing.

What this does essentially is open's the FireFox Find toolbar (Ctrl-F) for you, and begins searching when you type - as long as your focus is not in some sort of text input box or textarea. So you can open a page of huge text and then just start typing the word you're looking for, without asking it to do a "Find."

Google for MP3s via Clicked:

There are a couple different ways to do this, but this is one that I've found works well. By replacing "beatles" with whatever band you're looking for in this search string: “beatles” + “index of” + “mp3" -html -htm -php and pasting it into a Google Search, you can hunt around in peoples' web indexes for real live MP3s.

Also, if you have the Google Toolbar installed you can use one of these extensions and load the search into your toolbar, ready to be on the hunt for MP3s at any time.

Another one that works:
"beatles" (-inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:"index of" "Last modified") (mp3 | wma | ogg)
