Back To The Beginning

Here’s a bit of nostalgia courtesy of the Funny Farm Archival Retrospective Tracking System:

Greetings from the Funny Farm!

I have to start off by saying a big hello to all you froody molochiks and “all intelligent lifeforms everywhere… and to everyone else out there, the secret is to bang the rocks together, guys.” Funny Farm Fact Finding Quiz: can you name the author of that quote? Where does molochik and froody come from?

To start off with, it’s good to be back. I just got back from a whirlwind trip across the country. I managed to snag tickets to a little party called BartFest 2002 in Las Vegas, NV at the Rio hotel and casino/resort – as well as a beautiful suite at the Rio in the sky overlooking the Strip! Also managed to snag a late set from a fabulous guitar player named Bruce Conti (at the Gold Coast across the street), along with a very nice CD of his work. And a show from Penn and Teller. And a trip through some of the casinos: the Luxor, Excalibur, NYNY, the new (2002) Aladdin. And a trip to the big light show and casinos downtown (where I managed to pay for the buffet and then some at the blackjack tables – yayy!)… so much to see and do in Vegas! I hardly got a chance to drink it all in…

And I’m going to give you just a taste of the mental intertwinings permeating my spanktuary before letting you meaunder around your life journeys: lots and lots of people will be protesting the proposed war in Iraq this weekend (the first weekend in October 2002). Will the Media Whores notice? Or seek to ridicule and downplay them? Will they be a success, or will we see some sort of Homeland Security shenanigans go down? And will any of it change the attitude of the American people between now and the mid-term elections only a month away? Inquiring minds want to know…*

* – of course, we all know how that turned out – the Republicants got re-electorated and the Illegally Installed Drunken Cokeheaded Deserter (During Wartime) got his illicit illegitimate war with Iraq.  Booyah!
