Apparently 2014 is shaping up to be one of the most rancid in recent memory – and that’s saying quite a lot, considering the amazing suckitude of the millennium so far – and it is looking as if there’s going to be no end in sight. I have recently heard from one long time friend who has lost a mother in law and a sister in law in short order; another long time friend who now has to work with diminished functionality due to congestive heart failure; and, on a personal note, not only has my employment departed, but the depressive nature of my personal situation has caused me to experience some functional issues of my own. Hopefully I will snap out of it in the near future.
Of course there are many others, besides those wiling to publicly express their frustrations, who continue to struggle with things this year. It is my sincere hope that those who have seen fit to tighten the screws on the average joe come to their senses and cut the less fortunate among us some slack.
In the meantime, I hope that, for everyone who is struggling with just getting through the day, it starts getting better before the end of the year, and 2014 starts to suck just a bit less by the time summer rolls around.

Well – I have been all wrapped up in the loss of gainful employment once more, and took a break from the internets for a few days. And then I went back to my favorite tequila treehouse to see if there were any more words of wisdom from my good friend Bartcop.
It is to my great sorrow that I found out that Bart is gone. I don’t think it has really sunk in yet. But I already miss him. And it saddens me to no end that I won’t be able to talk to him ever again.
So long, Bart. I will be making a few toasts in my Chinaco shot glasses over the next few days in your honor. So sorry to hear you’re gone…

There are a lot of things in the archives of the Funny Farm that have fallen by the wayside in the eleven plus years of bloggy goodness (coming up on ten years at this particular web address in April, as a matter of fact) I have been able to spew onto the internets. One of the ones that has gone dormant is the subject of today’s blast into the past…
In days (apparently) long gone, a small group of actors got together, and under the direction of an enterprising lad named Francis Stokes, they put together (among other things) a six part YouTube video series called God Inc in late 2006. At least some of the ensemble cast have appeared in some of the other videos linked to at the site, but there are no updates after 2008.
I tried to email Francis’ Monkey Secretary but he must have run away; and I can find no other way of finding anyone involved other than starting to physically going out and looking for them. Which goes far beyond any investigative budget considerations available to the Funny Farm Investigative Burro at this time.
I haven’t been able to get any more updates other than what you can find online. And I haven’t heard about anything at all coming from SciFi buying the rights to the God Inc franchise. But, if you haven’t yet had the pleasure, please take less than an hour out of your busy life and watch all six episodes of God Inc. You might even consider spending a bit more time and checking out some of the other video available from the links above – before they get bloggered, too… You’ll be glad you did!
Share and Enjoy!
