Wouldn’t it be nice if hackers could finally get laid so they would stop being such geeks!

Hackers suck.

[Yes, the original post was lost. They DO need to get laid!]

John beat me to it, but…

Merry Christmas!

My original post is missing, thanks to some dumb-ass hacker. What was it even about? Oh yes. It was about how I haven’t posted in a while.

Time fake magazine cover George Bush "We Are Fucked"

For Steve.



Would someone please WRITE SOMETHING on this damned forum? If not, what the hell is it doing here? What’s the POINT, dagnabit?

I was doing a little websurfing late this afternoon and ran across this loving tribute to one of the best movies ever made.

How could you even begin to support that nasty Tim Burton’s inflated ego and his belief that my classic 1972 movie somehow needs to be remade?

It is perfect as it is.

Why not just ask David Hockney to paint Van Gogh’s “Sunflowers”? There is no point.

The new version of the movie may be called Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but Charlie appears in the trailer for about two seconds. Mr. Wonka is at the core of this story — perhaps it’s Roald Dahl who got it wrong when he called the book “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” Charlie’s just one of the minor characters.

This link will allow you to view the trailer using QuickTime.

I must post this joke.

The President, the First Lady and Dick Cheney are flying on Air Force
One. George looks at Laura, chuckles and says, “You know, I could
throw a $1,000.00 bill out the window right now and make somebody very

Laura shrugs her shoulders and says, “Well, I could throw ten $100.00
bills out the window and make 10 people very happy.” Cheney says, “Of
course then, I could throw one-hundred $10.00 bills out the window and
make a hundred people very happy.”

The pilot rolls his eyes, looks at all of them and says to his
co-pilot, “Such big shots back there….. hell, I could throw all of
them out the window and make 49 million people very happy.”

It is very good to see that all two of my readers were able to continue posting interesting items while I was home sick yesterday. This brings me closer to my plan of never posting here again and letting others do it instead. Consider it a first step in having other people come in to work for me, too, while I bask in the sun of some not-so-far-off paradise.

(Perhaps I am still sick!)

Bewitched Barbie

Sorry. Nicole Kidman’s “twitch” just doesn’t do it for me.

Not by a longshot.

Where is everyone?

Has all the fun gone out of the Wren Forum?

Tonight’s the night. Jeff and I are going to start on our big experiment: Two nights a week with the TV off the entire night. Sounds simple. We’ll see. We need to be less reliant on prerecorded entertainment. No TV programs. No DVDs. No VHS (like we ever did that anyway). No TiVo. Just each other.


Are we ready for that?!

I am so enamored with the name Lekowicz Heavy Industries that I’m seriously, for the next couple minutes at least, considering re-designing my website with that title. Wouldn’t that be a hoot?

Probably not.

My pal Bruce Kluger, who used to write for US Magazine, sends me this excellent piece on kids and the gay debate that he wrote for USA TODAY. Definitely worth a read.

Jeff opened escrow on another house today! 🙂

I know this will come as an absolute SHOCK to everyone on this board (and I do mean everyone), but I have a stunning revelation to pass along. I just learned it last night and I am still reeling:

Soylent Green is people!
