Acquiring product

Hey ho! I've placed my first and second orders, for yarns and patterns! I'm bursting with excitement -- and I looked at a very promising retail space yesterday -- woo hoo!

We Better Get This Party Started

Woo-hoo! Looking for space for the store! Callie and I are going to try to get the doors open in January. I'm lining up distributors and figuring out what I can afford to buy for my opening inventory. This is so cool!

They Call Me Mr. Cellophane

They Call Me Mr. Cellophane

Am I the only person who finds the invisible people that model CafePress T-shirts a little creepy? Like, the T-shirts have a shape of a T-shirt being worn by someone, and yet you can see through that person to the little tag on the back of the collar. Weird.

Hey, let's get this blog

Hey, let's get this blog back on topic

It's all about my ego, remember? So I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who hates the remix of "Superpowers" on the Dismemberment Plan's farewell CD.

I'm not quite unbiased in this discussion since I did my own remix of "Superpowers" which was passed over in favor of the one on the CD, which, to be fair, some reviewers have singled out for praise, even though I like mine better. Nyah.

I'm also fond of my remix of "Following Through", but at least I like the remix of that one which appears on the CD, so I can't get too het up about mine not making the cut in that case.

He Said, Fox Said So

He Said, Fox Said

So now it seems there's some question as to whether Fox really threatened to sue "The Simpsons" or not. Is Matt Groening finally taking his revenge for the mob-hit-style job Fox did on Futurama?

The Ugliest Stereo in Christendom

The Ugliest Stereo in Christendom

This hideous stereo system, according to its blurb on Amazon, "features an aggressive new design that takes its cue from the world of car audio, with fearless hot-rod styling". Because every day I rue the fact that my stereo insufficiently resembles a muscle car.

Fox Chases Its Own Tail

Fox Chases Its Own Tail

Is there any better argument for the fact that the Fox News Network is biased than that Fox threatened to break out the litigation over an episode of the Simpsons that made fun of it for being biased? A show which, the keen-eyed and the bleary-eyed alike among you will have noticed, airs on its own network.

Fox objected to a fake Fox-news-style ticker which featured headlines like "Do Democrats Cause Cancer?" Matt Groening reports, "Now Fox has a new rule that we can't do those little fake news crawls on the bottom of the screen in a cartoon because it might confuse the viewers into thinking it's real news," he said.

See? Only a super-biased network could think headlines like "Study: 92 per cent of Democrats are gay" are believable enough that people might take them seriously.
