Happy Valentine’s Day!
Category: Miscellany

Okay, so I'm kind of late with this -- everyone's probably off at their romantic dinners by now, or huddled on the couch with a bottle of vodka and a stack of dvds -- but here's the official Valentine's Day entry. Yesterday's poem was relevant, but this is the genuine article, folks.

YOU 'DA MUTANT! Happy Valentine's Day! :)

Yep! Happy Valentine's Day to (in no particular order)... (more...)

A poem for Valentine’s Day!
Category: Miscellany

Okay, I promised a poem for Valentine's Day, so here we go -- I wrote this one in 2001 or so, I think, though I occasionally return to it and modify it slightly. "Railroad Spike" is based, in part, on the events of a flashback in the Buffy episode "Fool for Love", which aired during the fifth season, and it takes its title from the quote of one of the persons who, upon hearing Spike's poetry (before Spike became a vampire), remarked, "I'd rather have a railroad spike through my head than listen to that awful stuff!" (After being made a vampire, we can imagine that Spike did just that, for William, as he was known in life, earned the nickname "Spike" by torturing his victims with railroad spikes.) (more...)

Sigh.

Okay, just a brief one. Things have been going pretty slowly on SC -- only 47 unique visits yesterday, a couple of which were probably me 🙁 -- so be sure to visit and give the content over there a look. (You can click here, or simply use the link at the top of the side menu.) I'm thinking the April piece will go up on Saturday evening, if not sooner. Sunday at the latest. (more...)

100% true stupid.
Category: Miscellany

Somehow I ended up staying up all night and doing absolutely nothing. But I did turn on part of Maury...anyone wanna guess what it was about? 😛 Today they put a twist on it, though -- there was one woman who literally had to have 20+ men tested to find her "baby daddy". And you know what? I'm pretty sure they didn't find him.

Yep, go ahead and say it with me. "Bloody hell." (more...)

First of all -- if you're having trouble viewing images, here or on SC, please send me an e-mail and let me know about it (replacing the "-at-" with "@" and removing the spaces, of course). I've been having a lot of trouble with people remote linking the images, which wouldn't be that much of a problem if they weren't doing it on forums and using the images in their signature files and as avatars. Forums get a lot of views a day, and it's really been a drain on the bandwidth -- for the month of February, SC is already up to 630 MB in traffic, and we only average about 150 unique visitors a day (most of whom only view one page). So I've implemented a script to disallow remote image linking, but depending on your browser it may not be as successful. If it doesn't work, try reloading the page -- there could be problems caused by your cache -- and if that doesn't work e-mail me to let me know, and tell me your OS and browser while you're at it. And if you want to drop a line to say, "Hey, Wes -- just wanted to let you know everything's a-okay for me!" feel free to do that too. (more...)
