Random thought for the day

The happening place to be. Unless you go somewhere else that's more stimulating.

Absolutely.

Unfornately, black tv characters often are still clowns, and in the movies hoodlums.

I think what this all means is that the Advertising Industry is banking on there being a positive association in the average consurmer's mind with this character type.


I'm sure ad agencies will probably cash in on Oboma winning the election, but commercials were trending that way before Oboma. And yes, it seems to be centered around Dennis Haysbert.

If you skip ahead to about 5:48 seconds, you will see Dr. Weird and hear a snare drum. At about 6:00, you will see a gray dog playing the snare.

Well I said it once, but I'll say it again, you really are a show off drummer boy.

It seems so. Playing drums in a fursuit makes it funny.

I've wanted to wear a rabbit suit and play drums in a music video. :) I think the flaming lips have already done that though. I know they've had Justin Timberlake in a dolphin suit playing bass, and nothing I've done has gotten big enough to warrant a video.

Ha ha, that's be awesome! I know a guy that plays the keyboard in his tiger suit.

I may have said it before, I dunno, but I know John Mayer has a bear suit and plays in it sometimes.

I hooked up my pc speakers for the first time in a year, and it took a long time to download on my shameful dialup connection, but I did really enjoy that.
