Some observations about Huell Howser...

I've been watching too much Huell over at the Chapman University archive.  Here are some things I've noticed.

1)  Huell is kind of a troll.  He likes to stick the mic in the faces of elderly people eating ice cream and ask them questions that either have no good answer or maybe only one good answer.  He thinks he can hide behind his hokey facade, but I think he's trolling people just enough to entertain himself without being too obvious about it.

2)  Huell fucks with cops.  He never misses an opportunity to sort of highlight the fact that the cop is just standing around doing nothing. Of course the cop is just standing around, because Huell just found a random cop on the street to interview. 

3)  Huell's on an existential adventure.  He's not just documenting random California events/locations/history.  There is a sense of urgency about each episode. 'There's a lot to do and a lot to find so we gotta get going.'  Huell  is looking for his own 'California's Gold', something that gives meaning to his own life. I've seen a few episodes where Huell finds 'it'.  The Ferndale episode is one.  I'm surprised he didn't move there.

4)  I love it when the local experts/historians jizz themselves with excitement about being in a Huell episode.  This is their moment to shine.  When their eagerness to dump their knowledge of the subject is amplified by Huells enthusiasm the result is an iridescent, golden flow of obscure California history. 

Dear Lance McNugget...

...I just can't bring myself to do fantasy football this year. I'm sorry. I'm just not into it, and it becomes a responsibility. I know that I may be a queer, and that I almost softed out last year, but this year the softening will be complete. K-THX-BAI.

1337 play hours of TF2 guarantees my leetness for sure...

Ya, that's 1337 hours of quality fpsing time for which I have nothing to show.  It is leet indeed, but I wish I had an extra 1337 hours of chops instead.

17 Miller Lites in the fridge.

Shall I mete them out slowly over the course of the coming weeks, or blast through half of them today as the last gasp of my weekend?

I got a SPDIF cable...

It connects my Pod HD to my vintage Layla 24 audio interface.  It crackles.  I want it to be digital and pure;  I want the promise of digital tech to be realized in my signal chain.  Why is there filth in there?  Why can't I patch digital signals with the same ease as analog?  Glad I got this off my chest.

Never stop believing in cheese.

I don't post much these days.

What I've been doing:

-Flight simulating
-Having a rash of some kind
-Little bit of eDrumming
-Being soft

What I've not been doing, which I should be doing:

-Taking the time to not be soft.
-Honing chops.
-Understanding and obliterating the rash with the help of modern medical tech.
-Farm simulating.
-Eating less cheese.

Seems like everyone's still alive, although I haven't seen a Lydon post in a coon's age.

Cleansmanship is now a subsidiary of an autonomous digital corporation.

I sold out our blog when I created Cleansmanship Coin, so you might as well get your share. You'll need to have them in order to live among the machines... as slaves, of course. 

Pretty soon our blog, then our free will and souls will be controlled by the Bitcoin Network. 

Edit: Fuck it.

When you used to say that "perception is reality," were you reading a lot of Berkeley and Hume?
