Archived News for the Month of August 2001

New this Week:

8-15: Another drawing. This time it is one I did recently for a Marathon scenario. It is a diseased Pfhor, an early concept that was dropped from the official Marathon story. If you just ate, you might want to wait for an hour before viewing it. Otherwise for those strong of heart and empty of stomach go check out the Contemporary Art section of the Art Portfolio page in the Hobbies department.

8-14: OK, now worry. I have another photo of me growing old ungraciously. This time I am back in the woods I used to hang out in as a kid. Gee whiz, things sure have changed since I was there last. It's all on the Photo Album page of the Extra section.

8-13: Don't worry, I don't have another photo of me growing old ungraciously. I have a stupid drawing I did in high school! Thought your were going to get off easy did you? Everybody suffers at the House of Wacks, you are no exception, so just go see the world's first surfer ride the world's first wave in the world's first primordial ocean right now and get it over with. It's in the Art department of the Hobbies page. You can spend the rest of the day goofing off... you earned it!

8-10: Charlton Heston steps up to the plate on the President's Column in NRA section of the Extra department. Chuck (I call him "Chuck" and he calls me "You there... boy") says a few words about how the anti-gun crowd is sneaking around changing their names to try to obfuscate who they are and what they want. He also warns us that although they were beaten in the last election they are still around and up to no good... so Join the NRA!

8-9: OK, this is starting to get old... er... let me rephrase that! This is starting to get repetitive. It seems that I just had another birthday and now I'm 43! I tell you, when bad living catches up with you it stampedes right over the top of you. Check out the Photo Album Page in the Extra department. Jump to the bottom.

8-8: What is it with politicians who fight against the Bill of Rights? What is it about the first and second amendments that infuriate them so? Is it that more freedom for you means less power for them? Of course it is. Wake up America, you only think "it" is happening to someone else. If you throw a frog into boiling water he will jump out, but if you slowly warm the water he is in he will stay put until it is too late. The same can be said for your freedoms, you are slowly being converted from a country where people have guaranteed freedoms to just another subjugated land ruled by a repressive government with unlimited power. Read how Wayne LaPierre describes one of the steps in this process on the Standing Guard page of the NRA section.

8-7: Hey didn't I just turn a year older a couple of days ago? It happened again! Now I'm 42... it must be some sort of Mama Jamba hex on me. I do have to admit that I am getting better looking the more my flesh rots off of my bones. Go see if I'm lying, go on... you know you want to. Check out the Photo Album page in the Extra department.

8-6: The NRA section gets an update this morning with a fresh content for the Armed Citizen page. This page features newspaper accounts of American citizens using firearms to save innocent lives and to protect property.

8-3: No news till Monday! I went camping and missed updating the site. I have updated the Joke of the Weak to be completed through and inclucing Friday. Have a good weekend!

8-1: A new month to trash! My Bird Mouth chilies have started to ripen already. These were grown from seed sent to me by a French agronomist friend. Thanks Michel Friedman! These were very fast growing, I have Habanero and Thai chilies growing right beside the Bird Mouth and the Bird Mouth is ripening when there are no other peppers on any of the other plants! They are hot too, looking like a cross between a Habanero and a Serrano. I wonder if these are a red variety of Datil chilies? I will take a picture of them when some fully ripen and put it on the Chili Pepper page.

As usual, the Joke of the Weak is updated every weekday by 8AM PST and the SETI page is updated every Monday. The NRA pages President's Column, Standing Guard and Armed Citizen are updated each month.
