This is the page where I put all sorts of random detritus that was in my directory of no apparent use, so I may as well put it on the web, right? Thought so.

Song lyrics

Song lyrics? Yeah song lyrics. Stuff I either transcribed myself or stole from a lyrics server way back when before such things were driven underground by the music industry. No HTML format cuz I'm lazy. Eit you!

Random other text files

These are some random other text files that I kept kicking around in my directory cuz I thought they were cool. Actually looking at them again, I just realized I wrote them. D'oh! Well they still might be of interest. :)

Quotes I liked from the book Dune
Zephyr signatures I've used in the past

I actually didn't write this next one - just received it as net dreck, and thought it was pretty cool.

A description of the eighties from one who grew up then

Totally random picture

I really liked ETs while at TEP. See, at the Children's Museum, there is a recycling store, where they sell totally useless stuff for very cheap. One of the things they sell is a whole 55-gallon drum worth of little plastic ETs. What on earth would somebody want with ET's one might ask (and in fact the clerks at the Recycle Store have asked me several times)?! Well, it all goes back to an older time at TEP, when I believe, Quake and his girlfriend went to the Children's Museum and bought approximately $10 worth of ETs (they're 5 cents each so this is an IMPRESSIVE amount). Then they hid them EVERYWHERE at TEP. The first few days, people thought it was cool/funny to find them everywhere. By the end of the week, though, people were screaming psychotically, every time they found one. I heard this story as a freshman at TEP and thought it was totally hilarious. I tested it by buying a few ETs at the Children's Museum, and tossing them to a couple of our older alums (Crusher and Leper to be exact). They both screamed and dropped the ETs like they were on fire. This was considered good by me. So I bought a dollars worth or so. And the next time I went to the Museum, I bought another dollars worth. And another. And another. Then I had fun lining them up in big rows on my computer, on my bookshelves etc. Every now and then, one or two would disappear, and show up mangled, or burnt by a stove's flame, or hanging in a noose from my doorframe with its face burnt off (these all happened). But all in all, my ETs made me happy, and made my brothers think I was weird. Anyway, I was going to make an Easter ET hunt my senior year, but wimped out, alas. So when U5, another of our alums, found this picture distributed at his work, he forwarded it on to me of course.
