Land of Linkin'

We didn't evolve from monkeys, although we're not so sure about the brown people. Welcome to Kansas. (Thanks to Jon.)

Sandwiches, sandwiches, the musical food; the more you eat, the more you say "Dude, Western culture makes me sad." (Thanks to Debby.)

I'd kill for a nice piece of cheese right now. No, seriously. (Via Cleolinda, another Holy Tango linker)

Can't get enough of Daniel's Anti-Caption Contest? Here's another inappropriate New Yorker caption. (Thanks to Jon again. The rest of the blog is worth reading as well.)

More open-source capitalism! Jane Siberry sent out a newsletter recently pointing out that her store (from which she sells MP3s) now works on the honor system: you can choose how much you want to pay. So you can, for instance, listen to an album before you decide you like it enough to keep it -- but her albums are excellent and worth paying for. My favorites are her self-titled debut album (out-of-print as a physical CD for ages; I bought it the last time she offered it as a download), "Bound by the Beauty", and "Maria", but really I like 'em all.

Waitaminnit! You mean, "Cheese it, the cops!" has another meaning? No whey!

Re: the Anti-Caption Contest:

I note that in the edition at you are cited no fewer than *three times* for submitting captions too funny to be anti-captions. For shame, Francis, for shame.

Guess I should count myself lucky for owning that CD, then...

What I would like to see is the original captions on those cartoons they use in the New Yorker contest.

Unless the cartoons are being drawn specifically for the contest.

Now I'm jonesing for queso fresco. Do you know where I can score some?

Saphir: You were ahead of the curve on that one. Are you secretly Canadian?

Eileen: Those cartoons are drawn for the New Yorker's actual caption contest, and thus begin their lives caption-free.

Orange: There's actually a queso store right around the corner from me, but I think you'd find it slightly inconvenient.

Dude, bring some cheese to Stamford. We'll party all night!
