I'm just glad Roll20 doesn't add numbers to your cloned characters. Otherwise, one of yours might be "2 Fargon." #sorry #sosorry

As awesomely wrong as this is, it wouldn't have been nearly as funny without the marvelous vocals of Ms. Koenig.

Mr. Andre won't be broke for long. I think his combination of honesty and relatability will sell a lot of seats (and, let's be honest, at the club level, a lot of drinks).

If you see things that are weirder than usual on one of my social blogs, it's because I'm working on using IFTTT to crosspost across all of them.

Yes, even LiveJournal. LiveJournal still exists.

Welcome to 2015!
I'm working on a new project called the Rocky Horror Abraham Lincoln Show, but so far all I have is Lincoln in stovepipe hat and fishnet stockings stage-whispering "Emanci....

The rational side of me realizes I've just been through honest-to-goodness, rearrange-your-parts surgery, and that I need the extra sleep I've been getting to heal.
The rest of me looks at the one-inch incision site and can't draw a link between that and the slowly diminishing pain in my gut, and can't understand why I'm tired all the time right now.
I'm lucky the pain isn't too bad, and that I can sleep. I have this weird neurological system that completely ignores hydrocodone, and while oxycodone does have a minor analgesic effect, it also knocks me out pretty quickly (Also, those two medications interact with a maintenance med I currently take). I did discover that Dilaudid (hydromorphone) takes away ALL the pain, but also keeps me from being able to stay awake at all.
So that's where I am right now. Bleh.

As a LEGO fan, I enjoyed this commercial, but...I can't help noticing that as of May 29, "Amscot" is spelled "Amsoct" in the second occurrence in the video title.

At the mall and they just played "Give Your Heart a Break" by Demi Lovato. Why are they trying to get people to leave at midday?

Fun Fact: The Scion xB is built on the same platform as the Toyota Corolla (to the point that it is called a Corolla Rumion in Asia and a Corolla Rukus in Australia), but has an old version of the Toyota Camry's engine.

I've noticed a disappointing trend when using my phone to surf websites: a lot of them seem to be taking advantage of the fact that most browsers don't have ad-blocking plugins to make my user experience look like Internet Explorer 4 under Windows 98--i.e., an unusable mishmash of pop-up ads, and in the case of Salon.com, even an attempt to open something Chrome thinks is a mobile APP! WTF?
Even snopes.com is unusable on my phone. What other sites have you noticed doing this? I'd like to compile a list. We need to band together to fix this.
Solutions:
1) Jailbreak/rooting: Not practical for all users, especially non-technically-inclined users. Jailbreaking (iOS) and rooting (Android)--and whatever one does to a Windows phone--give the user basically carte blanche to make changes to the phone's operating system, with all the benefits and risks inherent in that process. In other words, you can turn your phone into a superphone capable of contacting the Doctor no matter where he is in time and space*, or turn it into a very expensive paperweight. However, jailbroken and rooted phones do have the advantage of browsers that accept ad-blocking extensions.
2) Contacting site owners: the advantage is that it's courteous. The disadvantage is that it probably won't help.
3) Contacting phone and app makers: this might be a good option to combine with option 2, although honestly, phone makers really don't stand to lose too much from people upset over ads messing up their web browsing experience.
I'll consider any other options as long as they are legal. Please comment with both any sites I haven't mentioned and any ideas you have.
*It may not be possible to contact the Doctor, since he is a fictional character, especially if you are on T-Mobile.

I've noticed the same thing, and it drives me crazy! Not only that, most mobile websites are now completely unusable due to the number of ads that pop up while you're trying to read. Some of them even permanently block screen real estate.

I am quite pleased with my experience at Toyota of Tampa Bay and with the purchase two years ago of my Scion xB. The service department is excellent, and the road hazard coverage even covered a tire shredded by debris on I-75! The dealership is very good at communication, and thanks to them, I've never missed a scheduled service. The only thing I could recommend would be to have the sales staff offer custom suspension packages (I have a bad back, and the xB's Corolla-based suspension and slightly heavier weight combined with the 16" alloy wheels and low-profile tires means the ride is a tiny bit stiff), but that's a really tiny quibble. Overall, if you want a good car from a dealership that treats you right, you should consider Toyota of Tampa Bay.
