Here’s another Fly On The Wall conversation, this time somewhere near Damascus….

He Who Forced France To Surrender (seven times, mind you!) slams the French at the ESPY Awards. I won’t spoil it for you, but I will say this. He was quite mild at it.
Hey France, at least he didn’t head-butt you back!
Here’s a picture of just one case of old 3.5-inch floppies. I haven’t used a floppy on my home computer since 1999, and not too long after I got out here, I archived all the old floppies I had acquired over the years onto a DVD. All well and good. If you click on the thumbnail, you’ll see just how old these floppies are: who all remembers MacWrite II? Yes, that’s how old they are.
However, I am tired of having these damn things around. Short of obtaining a bulk eraser (anyone out there got one I can use?), I have to erase whatever’s on them before I toss the disks. For now, I’m utilizing my [external] USB floppy drive to wipe them. And it is an excruciating process, since if I recall, I have on the order of a couple of hundred floppies.
What a pain in the a**.
I love the look on Bashar Assad’s face: “WTF have I gotten myself into?” Funny he should ask that; according to Ynetnews, Israel has given Syria 72 hours to cease and desist all Hezbollah activity and to return the two kidnapped IDF soldiers, or else Syria will get the same treatment Lebanon is currently receiving.
It may be also significant that, except for Syria and Lebanon, the Arab League either can’t or won’t say s**t about the current Israeli offensive. Besides, Egypt is getting dumped upon by their Palestinian “brothers” who chose to reopen (with a BOOM! of course) a Gazan border checkpoint.
So it looks like the Arabs have their hands full for a while. We’d better keep an eye on what Ahmadinnerjacket is up to during all this….
After all these years, I’ve finally seen the strange amalgamation of “The Wizard of Oz” with Pink Floyd’s “The Dark Side of The Moon,” also known by the title of this post, or “The Dark Side of the Rainbow.”
And now, you too can judge for yourself.
Watching the synchronization of Dorothy’s ride in the house during the tornado to “The Great Gig in the Sky” is just, well, unreal! The Munchkins dancing around to “Money” is almost akin to a music video. And I swear the Scarecrow’s nose is the same one Ray Bolger wore forty years later as an android on Battlestar Galactica…of course, he’s synched with “Brain Damage.” The final beating-heart chords of “Eclipse” match up with the Tin Woodsman, who has none.
Amazing. Yep, it lives up to the legend.
