Disney Stuff

In case you were interested, I pulled the original lyrics to Pirates of the Caribbean off of the Disney Intranet. Shh! This is flagged for INTERNAL USE ONLY!

Yo Ho, Yo Ho, a pirate's life for me.
We pillage, plunder,we rifle, we loot,drink up me hearties, Yo Ho.
We kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot, drink up me hearties, Yo Ho.
Yo Ho, Yo Ho, a pirate's life for me.
We extort and pilfer, we filch and sack, drink up me hearties, Yo Ho.
Maraud and embezzle and even highjack, drink up me hearties, Yo Ho.
Yo Ho, Yo Ho, a pirate's life for me.
We kindle and char and inflame and ignite, drink up me hearties Yo Ho.
We burn up the city we're really a fright, drink up me hearties Yo Ho.
Yo Ho, Yo Ho, A pirate's life for me.
We're rascals and scoundrels, we're villains and knaves, drink up me hearties, Yo Ho.
We're devils and black sheep, we're really bad eggs, drink up me hearties, Yo Ho.
Yo Ho, Yo Ho, A pirate's life for me.
We're beggars and blighters and ne'er do well cads, drink up me hearties, Yo Ho.
Aye, but we're loved by our mommies 'n dads, drink up me hearties, Yo Ho.
Yo Ho, Yo Ho, A pirate's life for me.

Oh dear, they kidnap ravage and don't give a hoot!?!? Are they polluting too?? I am impressed that a bunch of presumably illiterate pirates were able to come up with four synonyms for 'burn'.

UPDATE: Heh, they embezzle too? Do they sneak into town at night and cook the books at Ye Olde Investment Firm? I'm amused by the thought of a bunch of pirates sitting around plotting to plunder the 401(k) plan at the local sugar plantation.

No more LOTR

Well, I've reached the limit of as far as I can go on Lord of the Rings without being able to access the level that won't load. So, I'm afraid there will be no more thrilling updates on this game. It does kind of remind me that it's probably not a good idea for me to play video games too often. I take it too seriously. On the Fields of Pellenor mission, when I failed to protect Eowyn and Merry and they were killed by war elephants I was practically apologizing to the screen. "Eowyn, I'm sorry! I'll do better next time!" Oh and don't get me started on The Breaching Wall mission. If you fail that one, you get a nice little clip of Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli being killed by orcs. Oh, that one hurt.

Presidential March Madness

Heh, this is fun. Go here andvote for the 2008 Republican Presidential nominee...bracket style! Allready, Tom Tancredo has upset Americas number one publicity whore, John McCain. Sadly, my boy Mitt Romney will probably bow out this round. I'm guessing COndoleeza Rice wins it all. This website also gives me the only chance I will ever have to say "Who will win in tomorrows battle between Colin Powell and Elizabeth Dole?"

Update: Hmm...if the above link does not work, try this one-

Cubs Vs. Twins

Gwen tells me she directed her dad to my site, so, die-hard Cubs fan that he is, I decided to put in some Chicago content. Lets take a look at the Twins and Cubs starting lineups and rotations.

(Well, I'll get to it as soon as the proper pages load...I came in to the computer lab the other day to find it was down. Apparently they were installing DSL. Oh good, I thought, this lab will actually be usable. Apparently this DSL stands for...uhh..Damn Slow Loading...or something equally clever)

Ok, here we go.
(I'm doing this by batting order..or what I would guess would be the batting order...Twins player is listed first)

1-Shannon Stewart/ Corey Patterson- Edge: Twins. Stewart is a potential annual all-star. Patterson is the guy you keep thinking is in his second season and is gonna break out huge any day now.
2-Luis Rivas/ Todd Walker- Edge: Cubs. Walker, who used to be a Twin, can actually HIT. As opposed to Rivas, who can put the ball in play.
3-Joe Mauer/ Nomar Garciapara- Edge: Cubs. I've never been particularly enamored with Nomar, but at least his knee isn't made of cardboard.
4-Torii Hunter/ Jeromy Burnitz- Edge: Cubs. I'm a huge Hunter fan, but not for his bat. Burnitz is not that great, but a better enough at the plate.
5-Lew Ford/ Derek Lee- Edge: Twins. Because Lee struck out in RBI situations last year on my birthday. Ruin my trip to Wrigley will you!
6-Jaques Jones/ Aramis Ramirez- Edge: Twins. Ramirez has an uncanny ability to always be picking his nose when the camera shows him in the dugout.
7-Justin Morneau/ Todd Hollandsworth- Edge: Twins. Todd was the guy who won Rookie of the Year in 96, beating out Edgar Renteria and Jason Kendall, just because voters were incapable of voting for anyone not wearing a Dodger uniform at the time. And look how well that worked out.
8-Michael Cuddyer/Michael Barret: Edge: Twins. Cuddyer is just holding the spot until TERRIBLE TERRY TIFFEE is ready.
9-Nick Punto/ Pitcher- Edge: Ummmm......

Rotation- Johan Santana, Brad Radke, Carlos Silva, Kyle Lohse, Joe Mays
Mark Prior, Carlos Zambrano, Kerry Wood, Greg Maddux, Glendon Rusch

Well, any rotation where Greg Maddux is your four starter has to be pretty good. But I see that Prior and Wood won't be ready to go at the start of the season. Surprise. Edge: Twins

Closer- Joe Nathan/ Ryan Dempster- Ryan Dempter may have actually been traded now that I think about it. Hmm, I should have researched this better. Oh, well Joe Nathan wins here anyway.

Clearly the better team: Twins! Yes!
