I am behind the times. Only today did I experience the video for "Turn Down For What", and then the reddit page of analyses of the song.
I was going to give Stephen Mack a pass on the whole "celebrity deaths come in threes" because I figured Robin Williams was big enough to count for three. But now with Lauren Bacall, I'm not so sure.
Don't mess with me, Johns. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Start a 48 hour clock and we'll see. - Brian Johns
Mack speaks the truth. Always in threes. - Mary Carmen
Does the nascar driver killed over the weekend count as #1? I don't want to hear of another celeb death... - Lola Bean (Penguin)
Ooh - good idea. If we don't have anything better to go with by Thursday night we'll go with him and call it a triad. - Brian Johns
I stand by my previous posts debunking the "celebrity deaths come in threes" superstition. http://www.zeigen.com/blog... - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Does Philip Seymour Hoffman not count? - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
oh my god. - Laura Norvig
The fact you can't name the NASCAR killer means he doesn't count. GL to all celebs. - Louis Gray
According to my mom, Ed Nelson from Peyton Place & The Twilight Zone is #3. - Lola Bean (Penguin) from iPhone
If Thursday night (an arbitrary deadline) comes and goes and nobody else (arbitrarily) famous enough dies then I will consider that scientific proof that the "celebrities die in threes" thing is a myth. I may be willing to join the “Celebrity deaths come in 1.7s” camp based on this very scientific data. - Brian Johns
Followup and Conclusion: After an extensive period of data collection and analysis over the last 4 days, I have changed my mind and joined Stephen's 1.7 bandwagon. Basically, I picked Robin Williams as a test and I haven't seen two other similarly noteworthy celebrities die so I'm going to generalize that experience over the entire realm of possibility and call it a scientific fact. If... more... - Brian Johns
Good analysis, Sparky! - Stephen Mack
This is how science is done, except I should have gotten a grant. - Brian Johns
Jay Adams has passed away. They do come in threes. - NOT THE CRICKET from iPhone
Who? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
One of the Z-Boys/ Lords of Dogtown. One of the guys who was involved in evolving skateboarding to it's modern style. - NOT THE CRICKET from iPhone
I'm waiting to see how this situation in Ferguson, MO plays out. Bothered by the police response including the week-long no-fly zone and effective media ban. Martial law?
In times like this I'm reminded of the phrase I learned from my poli-sci professor: "monopoly of violence." Police are always terrified when they feel they don't have it. - Brian Johns

Weird Al's "Word Crimes" video is really great: http://www.weirdal.com/#
The songs I've listened to from Weird Al's new album are pretty good. "Foil" and "Word Games" are crafty. http://www.dailymotion.com/video...
My car is usually pretty reliable transportation. But when I pick up the 3 year old from school and she's bringing home art with glitter on it, somehow the glitter never seems to make it all the way home. Curious.
Glitter, the herpes of the craft world. - Shannon - GlassMistress
But "never seems" indicates the glitter is reliable, yes? - Louis Gray

Plastic furniture covering, this was a big thing when I was growing up. This is a Mad Men time capsule. - Janet from FFHound!
The thing that really surprised me - I mean _one_ thing that really surprised me - was how "normal" the kitchen looks. That basement bar/poolhall thing is great though. I need more pictures of naked ladies in my basement. - Brian Johns
I like how Farrah Fawcett was written on the stair beside her picture. - NOT THE CRICKET
I want that house. Kitsch and all. - Hookuh Tinypants
Looks like it was decorated back in the 70's, by an old Italian lady from Bloomfield, NJ. - April Russo
The three year old's preschool is talking about the Solar System and they don't include Pluto. Time to withdraw her in protest and switch to home schooling?

I get to be a best man in a wedding today!
Because of wedding, hoping baby is not born today. :-) Told wife to please hold off for another 10 hours, and then we're good to go. - Brian Johns
I think there's cell service at the wedding venue so if things get interesting on the homefront I can get away. We've already talked about contingency plans for me to deputize another member of the wedding party as Best Man, hand off the Speech Of Wisdom and the Flask Of Confidence and run. - Brian Johns
Oh man, Sparky! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
My father was the best man in a wedding the day I was born. My parents went to the wedding, mother apparently knowing she was in labor and telling my aunt's new boyfriend (later her husband) that he might have to take her to the hospital. But instead, after the wedding, they went to the hospital and there I was about 4 hours later (I've heard this story many times). - ellbeecee
Is it just me or has FF been grinding a bit in the last couple days? Somebody go check the oil in this thing!
Not just you! Yeah, definitely some issues. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Sorry. I was standing on the cord. - Louis Gray

The new tab style in Firefox might be what pushes me to Chrome.
it pissed me off, but not THAT much. - Big Joe Silence
Yeah, I'll tolerate it. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
I'm sure I'll get used to it before I actually switch, but Damn... - Brian Johns
Hm? I can't run Firefox on my Chromebook. Guess I'll have to Google it to see. - Louis Gray

"Total Eclipse of the Heart" has a pretty messed up video for something that sounds like a love song on the surface: http://www.youtube.com/das_cap...
You could easily re-dub the video with a horror film soundtrack. - Brian Johns

that's awesome. - Brian Johns

That's the version I usually think of but I wanted to see the original version and - wow! I thought it was a fake video at first. - Brian Johns
Yeah, it's something. Neal's is hilarious. - Stephen Mack from iPhone

Hello from Pacific Grove, version 2
I'm looking for a company to host my email with my personal domain. IMAP required. I don' tmind paying a little for a decent service. Suggestions?
Hmm. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Run your own server? - Todd Hoff
I've heard good things about https://www.fastmail.fm for a long time. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
being "hosted" so I don't have to run my own server is absolutely the #1 requirement for this. - Brian Johns
Godaddy, google - Ubikindred
So far, pobox.com is looking the strongest. - Brian Johns
I can recommend NOT using Bluehost.com. We seem to have lots of mail issues with them. - Ken Gidley
So, um google apps? - Steve and 4 other people

I just learned today that Joan Rivers is still alive.
How lucky for you to be oblivious all this time. :) - Tamara J. B.
She's going strong at age 80. Her career actually improved -- high-grossing comedy tours -- after the 2010 documentary about her, "A Piece of Work" and her Celebrity Apprentice win in 2009. - Stephen Mack
I think she might be touring over here soon... - Heleninstitches
I remember the first time my parents took us camping in Tahoe (along with my mom's brother's family) back in the 1980s. One of the nights, I was watching the younger kids and my cousins while the parents hit the casinos. Joan Rivers was playing at the Caesar's Palace, and my mom wanted to see her, but my dad thought the tickets were too expensive. My mom decided to play the slots, and... more... - Stephen Mack
Great story, Stephen! - Tamara J. B.
Her face will live forever. - Julian
Well, I only learned about her still being alive due to her recent comments about Lena Dunham's weight. I wonder what this will do to her career. - Brian Johns
Cal Poly and Mercer could meet in the Elite 8 round.
So, how about that Mercer Basketball??? Looking good for Cal Poly tonight! :-)

Did some phone tech support for the parents about bookmarks getting lost in Firefox and I realized that I haven't used bookmarks in years. RSS killed bookmarks for me and ever since Google Reader went away I've been getting by with the auto-complete on the URL field and just not caring anymore.
