Consulting Deeds, Done Dirt Cheap

The lead guitarist of AC/DC, Angus Young, celebrates his birthday today. He's about the same age as me, only a trillion dollars richer. But I'm not bitter, oh no, not me, no, uh-uh.

The Mighty Roentgen has sent me the link to a recent humor piece by Glenn Eichler (name sounds familiar). It appeared in The New Yorker last year. Anyone for antiques? (Not talking about Angus Young, of course. He's too rich to be an antique. Not that I'm bitter or anything, no, not at all.)

Roentgen also sent me a YouTube link of interest here. "These are clips from the Beavis and Butt-head SNES game (Super Nintendo Entertainment System)," he writes. "Beavis and Butt-head seem to be seeking out Gwar! tickets and face many obstacles on the way.......this 'level' is set at Highland High School. About 1:41 into the club, we see no one other than Our Heroine coming at them with what looks like a pointy stick...or something. Daria gets knocked down, and the game continues. We never see Daria again." Dirty deeds done dirt cheap, indeed. [LATE ADD: Daria is actually carrying a lunch tray. The bad boys knock her down.]

"Did you know that the lockers at Highland High were baby blue and pink?" Roentgen adds. "No wonder Todd keeps knocking them over." Wonder if they were color coded for boys/girls.

In the realm of surprising new Daria art, Christ Oliver has posted a very fine pic discovered on deviantART: It came from the internet 2 : The return of the revenge. Niiiiiice! I feel less bitter now. I wasn't before, of course, but after that picture I feel less so.

The antiques story was ten kinds of awesome. My dad and I have a similar ritual at good ol' Midwestern garage sales.

TAG, you shook me all night long (with laughter, of course).
