So here's a youtube clip which is...very accurate, actually.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, clappamungus sent to me...
Twelve maiming fucktards drumming
Eleven eating souls piping
Ten fawlty towers a-leaping
Nine hating emos dancing
Eight killing creationists a-milking
Seven bill hicks a-swimming
Six stratocasters a-farting
Five gu-u-u-uitar virtuosos
Four black books
Three destroying undergrads
Two tolvanen guitars
...and a krautrock in a biology.
Get your own Twelve Days:

I've had a fairly stressful day.

So instead of writing about it, I'm going to indulge in some classic lowbrow Aussie comedy, starring Eric Bana:

I'm drinking instant coffee.


I feel as though my insides have been desecrated.

And yet, if I do not drink this vile stuff, I will fall asleep through sheer boredom.

This paper I'm writing is almost as bad as writing/correcting my thesis. Funnily enough, it's on work I did for my PhD.

You never actually accomplish anything. The past keeps on coming back to bite you in the arse.

And then you remember that in the past, you had to drink instant coffee as well, and it's even more depressing that you appear to be regressing.

And then you realise you're referring to yourself in the third second person, and procrastinating, and you decide to get the fuck back on with things.

...but I find Heidi Klum hotter, now that I know that she keeps her old teeth in a pouch.


Yes, fuckit, I'm procrastinating. Review papers are boring as all hell.

What My Taste In Art Says About Me, apparently )

Yes, this makes sense. I've never really liked abstract or "modern" art.

So bored.

* Having the most un-fucking-productive day ever.

* I am, possibly, the most intolerant person that I have ever come across.

* Nostalgia for the win (see music). I had forgotten that this was on my iTunes.

I can procrastinate. I'm the procrastinator.

Instead of doing post-supervisor-interference thesis corrections, I cleaned. I can now see the corners of our bedroom. Amazing...I never knew the skirting boards were that colour. And there is a lovely dust-free feel to the place.

Rest assured, those who care: I have done some of the corrections. I just can't bear to do any more right now.

Anyway, I could have done thesis corrections - or watched as Jezzy freaked the hell out when I started using the vacuum cleaner. That funny little bark of "wtf is that thing???" is infinitely amusing. I will never understand why dogs get scared by vacuum cleaners. But it provides many laughs. What's not so amusing is when she keeps stealing stuff and tries to make me chase her around the place to retrieve said stuff. Earth to Jezzy - NOT HAPPENING. *I* am master; you are dog. Get that into your cocker spaniel-corrupted brain.

Time to vacuum the living room.

As you can see, my life is really exciting right now.

The top "news" stories from my friend, Yahoo!

I swear, there have to be alien lolcats out there (lolaliens?)

Apparently, when a famous bogan takes a drug in her teens, it's news. Uh huh.
Mercedes Corby, do us all a favour, and overdose. (Oh noes, did I say that out loud???)

Brendan Nelson forgets the past, when his government also handed down budgets that targeted "people they (didn't) like".
Geez, a budget where the rich are made to shell out a bit more is bad according to the Liberals? Well, fuck me dead! In my opinion, it doesn't really go far enough. As far as I have followed it, I think it's a fairly conservative and piss-weak budget, really. Certainly not "typical Labor", as that dumbarse Nelson puts it.


Ok, that had the opposite effect of cheering me up. Now I feel like going out and bashing a Young Liberal.

Instead, I'll go make up a toxic, corrosive lab reagent while I download some Kyuss and Motörhead.

EDIT Grr. Motörhead download timed out. Bloody Mediafire.

Because the thesis corrections are truly making me homicidal (more so than usual):

List, updated, with yet more categories. )

Explanation required. Django Reinhardt was an absolute master jazz guitarist. And the proof:

Anyone can play fast. But they usually need more than two fingers... Forgetting the speed, the guy was a true innovator. Must remember to pick up some of his stuff, which I've been meaning to do for years. And one can't forget his co-lead, Stéphane Grapelli. Unfortunately I don't have enough knowledge of great violinists to make up such a list, although Martin Hayes would sure as hell be right up there if I did.

Now. Back to Thesis Corrections of Ball-Breaking DoomTM. Bugger.

The wonders of telling kids that sex out of wedlock is evil?
The writer of this article seems to think so...

I suppose the cause is secondary to the scariness of what some of these kids believe. It's even dumber than the use of glad-wrap and an elastic band in place of a condom.

Yahoo! News Funnies for the day (just because I despise Yahoo, doesn't mean I won't use the news service. It's where you find a lot of the "who gives a shit?" news that I find so amusing. And sometimes the plain weird).

A streaker actually does something useful for a change.
Ok, it wasn't a streaker, it was a cop.

"The offender...startled by the sight of a naked constable with just a torch coming towards him, took off." Or just any naked man running towards you in the middle of the night, really...

Crazy Norwegian steals a croc.
Jesus, some Norse just can't get over the fact that, by and large, they're not crazy Vikings anymore.

Mohamed Al Fayed just can't let it go, can he??
I don't usually pay much attention to the shenanigans of the British monarchy and their associated fucktards. But this amuses the hell out of me.

Earth to Mo' - No one gave a shit that Di was shagging the fruit of your loins. Get the freaking hell over it. There is no conspiracy. As the coroner said: "Speculation, surmise and belief are one thing; evidence is another."

Now, back to it.
clappamungus: (Dream Theater)
Guess which one is which. Duh.

Jupiter's moon Io causes an aurora borealis kind of luminescence on Jupiter's face as the planet spins.

Apparently, "A Current Affair" is not into factual reporting. Really? No shit. You could have knocked me down with a feather.

If you use Firefox, you can add this little gem of a program.
I am not going to yet, because I don't need another reason not to be productive. I just thought I would, in the words of Bill Hicks, "plant some seeds. You try. You do what you can. Kill yourselves." Ooops, that was supposed to be in my subliminal message post.

Oh yeah, and this unseasonal heat (although I'm now told that it's passed) can go fuck itself. Because of it, I got the worst night's sleep ever, which is why I'm yawning my head off now.

[ profile] vox_diabolica and [ profile] mc_shamo, this is for you.

Get this and learn it. If you can.

We're going to WOMADelaide this weekend. Hope the weather's good. We're driving tonight. God, looking forward to that...

Remember "Black Sheep"???

Well, just look at the reviews!!!!

Oh man. Has it come out in this godforsaken country yet??? Have I missed it???

My favourite quote: "A one-joke skit that trots in a straight line, and your enjoyment of it will depend entirely on how many times you need to see gonzo sheep rip out human entrails."

As much as I love my trusty hunk-of-junk car, Rusty, and as much character as she has, I'll also be so glad to one day drive a car whose:

* shocks and suspension don't creak and groan with every turn of the wheel
* idea of acceleration is not: "Oh, I don't think so, sweetheart. I'm not meant for this velocity. I'm too old!"
* de-mister and heater actually work, rather than producing a horrible burning smell and somehow making the engine emit weird noises too (this was especially pertinent this morning. Driving blind is not fun. I keep a rag in the car to wipe the windows - actually, no. It's worse than that. I use a sanitary pad. No, not one that's been "pre-loved", you idiots)
* consumption of petrol is appropriate to its engine capacity (my 4-cylinder car should NOT be using the same amount as a 6-cylinder)
* speakers aren't totally crapped out and making horrible static-y noises.
* (a cd player would be nice too. Tape deck?? Wtf?)

Yes, I know that if I serviced her more regularly and fixed up those problems, Rusty would run fine.

(a) she's not worth it. She's a '91 Camry!
(b) I don't have the money (which ties in very closely to (a) )
(c) The above plan is my Future plan. It might have no bearing in reality. I will probably be stuck with Rusty for a while. God, two years off 30 and I've never bought a car. Some might call that being lucky, I suppose.

....yes, I'm at the office, writing my thesis. How did you know?????

Procrastination time...

Your Score: Chaotic-Neutral

44% Good, 66% Chaotic

Plane of Existence: Limbo, "Plane of Ever-Changing Chaos". Description: An alien, anarchistic and unpredictable plane. Notable Inhabitants: Githzerai - human-like monks; Slaad - frog-like creatures.

Examples of Chaotic-Neutrals (Ethically Chaotic, Morally Neutral)

Barret Wallace (FFVII)

Yuffie Kisaragi (FFVII)

Tyler Durden

Dr. Frankenstein

Doctor Moreau


Peeves the Poltergeist

Fred & George Weasly

"Wild animals"

The almost totally unpredictable non-conformist loner. Will stand by and watch the white knight battle the black knight without feeling compelled to take sides.

Will keep their word if in their best interest

May attack an unarmed foe

May use poison

May help those in need

Prefers to work alone

Responds poorly to higher authority

Distrustful of organizations

Self preservation is strong but will not go to the same extent as Neutral-Evils.

They can generally be swayed easily.

Chaotic Neutral "Pure Chaos"

"Free Spirit"

A chaotic neutral [person] follows his whims. He is an individualist first and last. He values his own liberty but doesn't strive to protect others' freedom. He avoids authority, resents restrictions, and challenges traditions. A chaotic neutral [person] does not intentionally disrupt organizations as part of a campaign of anarchy. To do so, he would have to be motivated either by good (and a desire to liberate others), evil (and a desire to make others suffer), or be lawful neutral. A chaotic neutral [person] may be unpredictable, but his behavior is not totally random. He is not as likely to jump off a bridge as to cross it.

Chaotic neutral is freedom from both society's restrictions and a do-gooder's zeal.

Other Alignments and Tendencies (Tendenices are what you would more often sway towards; esp. for Neutrals):

0-39% Good, 0-39% Chaotic: Lawful-Evil

0-39% Good, 40-60% Chaotic: Neutral-Evil

0-39% Good, 61-100% Chaotic: Chaotic-Evil

40-60% Good, 0-39% Chaotic: Lawful-Neutral

40-60% Good, 40-60% Chaotic: True Neutral

61-100% Good, 0-39% Chaotic: Lawful-Good

61-100% Good, 40-60% Chaotic: Neutral-Good

61-100% Good, 61-100% Chaotic: Chaotic-Good
