The Polyphonic Spree

The Polyphonic Spree created an attractive Flash game to promote their music: The Quest For The Rest. (Game hint: click the cactus to get its buds to grow and fall off the ground.)

Their song, Light And Day, was in the movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, from which this video was made. From their live video of the same song, they seem like an awfully happy bunch.

They remind me of early Rheostatics (the Melville and Whale Music era).

Warning: Their site uses Flash exclusively.

An Alternative To “Hello”

This is a good one: HeavenO

Let’s now begin working towards the next 100 years with a more harmonious, intelligent, and positive new universal greeting: “HEAVENO!” A symbol of Peace, friendship and Welcome
This greeting word (hello) contradicts All Our Positive Social And Cultural Values that we cherish and hold dear. If our country’s pledge would read “One nation under Satan?” then maybe “hello” would deserve some measure of merit!!
The “O” is not enough to hide the most negative word (Hell) printed in every dictionary!

Eating Fermented Soybeans

Soya beansSteve, Don’t Eat It! Vol. 6 is out. He tackles fermented soybeans in this episode:

What I find most hilarious is that there is an expiration date on the package. What could they possibly expect to happen to the product on this date THAT HAS NOT ALREADY OCCURRED?!!!
Also, nestled in this mound of compost was a li’l packet of mustard. In its place, I would strongly suggest a written apology.
