Hang on, I googled for Props, took the first link that came up and look: they can get you an R2D2!! That just made my day.


Erm, sorry, but if that is, in fact, an astromech droid, it looks more like an R4.

Things that make Squid happy --> being a total Star Woid geekus tremendous.

Props to the Decemberists!
Especially the very crowdsurfing Nate Query.

props to the Decemberists seconded. For bringing their album alive in the most amazing way (I'm sorry I doubted that they could recreate that rich sound), for bringing calastenics midshow (!), and for re-enacting the battle of what'sit where the Dutch beat the English, right in the middle of the crowd in a sold-out room. Icing on the cake was that the first song over the Paradiso PA after their show was Rich Wife. This made me very happy yesterday evening and it lasted pretty much most of today.

Yea I liked how they made almost every show really special. (I had no idea you're on thei board, too... and you're a chimbley sweep already!)

The 10-min. O Valencia-director's cut video is awesome, too.

As long as it's just plain ol' "coffee"...
Black, or perhaps with sugar, maybe half & half...
Not some twisted, unpronounceable monster, created by a corporation...

I'll sing praises for coffee! I'm not a machine, but I make a damn good coffee, if I may say so. We just got some great whole beans and hazelnut creamer. Mmmmmm...

Found this, and it was perfect for you, Grant:

"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty,
to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child,
a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived."-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Oh! The quote was cut off one line too early!

The rest:

"This is to have succeeded."

Also, don't you love it when you find a really great pen?

Not a "nice" pen, or an expensive pen...sometimes it's a free pen from the bank or something...but every once in awhile you find yourself with a normal seeming pen that fits right in your hand, the ink flows at the perfect rate and color, it makes your penmanship just a little better. I love a good pen.

I left it off intentionally...
Success, is not an indie reason to live...

I love going to the doctor's office, and pilfering a really good pharmaceutical company pen...

If this thread isn't totally, wonderfully "bump-able", then I don't know what is...

Continue on, if not for Grant, then for the rest of us who feels life's sting...
Give them belief in tomorrow...
