"I see it now... You brought to my attention the beauty that is supposed to be in life."

"Life is like a road and we are all supposed to walk down it, transforming into different people at every crossroad. Sometimes we hit road blocks. Sometimes we're not sure how we'll continue, but we always transform into something that can get us through the day."

I couldn't get past the music. Ach!

If I had seen that when I was a child, I would have had recurring nightmares.

Caterpillar cats on LSD.

Tyrone Slothrop said...

Terrifying.

dbp said...

I would say, 100 octane nightmare fuel, but some of the other videos are even more freakish.

They came for food, and then these protesters had to read this "mic check" out loud?

Aren't they aware that taxpayers have to pay for the "services?" Hardly likely the thugs will convince anyone to improve the budget with money for them.

Just another example, though, of how Sarah Palin just nails it! They're not "angry" at the banks IF they can get bailouts, too.

They are, in fact, all about ENTITLEMENTS.

Sarah Palin's lone voice used the correct work: We, the American People are all about EMPOWERMENT!

Not tax rip off's.

Who changes the litter box at Occupy Pussy Street...I mean that was so sweet.

Cats are only territorial. If you live with a cat, it is because you live at the same house where the cat lives.

If you live with a dog it is because the dog goes wherever you go.

I like both cats and dogs. People come in different types too, and God loves them all.

Is there any advice for Scott Walker? Sure. He needs to hire a comedy writer. He has to become aware that telling a good joke often places your opponent in a lock hold.

Reagan did it, easily. Nancy, his wife, however, didn't have the talent for this. I remember reading that she was quoted as saying all her best retorts come after the fact. When she's at home and in the bathtub. Then she realizes what she could have done with that vicious question tossed at her, to stun her.

Don't forget. The motive is to STUN an opponent.

Humor, however, is what the pros learn. (Though I remember being in the audience at a Lewis Black concert. In San Diego. When a heckler said something so funny, Black just cracked up. And, bent over double, with laughter.)

I wonder if Toastmaster's teaches this trick?

Carol_Herman said...

Feh.

Photoshopping cats without legs.

Must have been a school project; or doing this video was a pure waste of time.

NO TALENT.

If you wanted to scare people away from your blog, this might do it.

I had no idea Hieronymus Bosch was into LOLcats.

You been drinking, Ann?

This is what happens when you cut your lysergic acid diethylamide with phencyclidine...

edutcher said...

Somebody needs to call The Blonde so she can cut the morphine drip.

That is freaky.

And ditto, Irene.

John Burgess said...

Dude... you just had to take the brown acid, didn't you.

Conserve Liberty said...

Is that a sardonic swipe at pretty kitty blog posts?

It's only just beguuuuunnnnnnn.....

Where are the Carpenters when you need them.

...

That was a rhetorical question btw.

Penny said...

So...

Some science fiction inspired U-tuber thought they could improve on "Cat's in the Cradle"?

Karen is dead. Richard lives in Thousand Oaks, California with his wife, Mary, who is also his first cousin. That's the rhetorical answer, anyway.

Why?

If you live with a dog it is because the dog goes wherever you go.

Speaking of dogs. Yummy Eye Candy. My New Fucking Puppy!

Just got him today. The third breeder and a trail of tears later. Who's a good boy?! Bear is!

Hmmm ... what's my idea of beauty .... can't think ...

Lem said...

There was beauty at the Tangled-Up-in-Purple Café a year ago.

Col Mustard said...

That's a beautiful dog!

rcommal said...

Me, I'm listening to "Lovely Rita." You know, the meter maid.

AllenS said...

garage, how do you post pictures at that place?

Jess said...

Garage, he's a beautiful dog, and that's a great name!

traditionalguy said...

Garage...You have a brown Lab...the most loyal and most loving of all large dogs. I am very sad now remembering Gracie, my brown Lab. She was special.

Rick Lee said...

Wow... that dude is a real artist. Click on the "Cyriak" channel and look at the rest of them. I especially like "Something" (also called "Why Study Home Economics"). Some serious fractal work in there. The one called "Hand Fingers" seems to be a simple fractal study but it's particularly mesmerizing.

I still think of my female chocolate a lot too.

Allen
I use Picasa [free from google] for camera shots. From the program you can upload to a web album.

Here is another shot. He's a good sized boy for 8 weeks.

AllenS said...

Ok, I have two pictures in Picasa. How do I link to them?

garage mahal said...

You have to upload them online to the web album. In Picasa there is a "upload" button on the bottom left. From the web album, on the right, there is a "link to this photo" link.

AllenS said...

Here goes:

1980 CJ7 Jeep

garage mahal said...

Worked! Nice workshop.

Tyrone Slothrop said...

@AllenS

This should help, too:

www.w3schools.com/HTML/html_links.asp

It is also useful for making those nifty, blue-highlighted links . Just cut and paste the line under "HTML Link Syntax" and fill in the "url" and "Link text".

Chassis

AllenS said...

Top view

AllenS said...

garage, can you see the crane that I built in the background?

garage mahal said...

Yea seen it. I thought maybe you were using it as a cherry picker of sorts. I take it the salt eats up those old Jeep chassis? That 1980 shown looks in great shape.

AllenS said...

The frame was bad in the back, and has extra steel welded to it. I flushed the mouse nests and acorns and the mud and the crud out of it with a garden hose, then after it was sandblasted, I poured rusty metal rustoleum in it. Lifted it with the crane and tipped it side to side go get the rustoleum all over the inside of the frame. I primered it and painted it gloss white. Looks clean doesn't it?

I'm putting the snow plow mount on it now, and will post more pictures at a later café.

garage mahal said...

Looks tits, nice work. My friend loves those old Jeeps, he just bought a newer one after his last Jeep finally bit it. He had someone weld whatever was left in the ass end. Thing was a deathrap on the highway, I hated riding it when I was helping him load or haul something.

How bad was it getting everything off the chassis? I can imagine a lot of rusted tight bolts and fasteners.

madAsHell said...

Why are you dumping money into a 31 year old automobile that you intend to use as a snow-plow??

AllenS said...

I had to heat every nut and bolt with my torch. And here's a big tip -- once the nut is hot, put some bees wax on it. It works like magic for some reason.

AllenS said...

Because I've been plowing snow with a 1949 IH Farmall model H tractor since 1973, and for two years before that with a 1946 John Deere model H tractor. I'm tired of freezing my ass off.

madAsHell said...

Ohhhhhh...!!

AllenS said...

Here's what I've been plowing snow with. Note homemade plow.

AllenS said...

Here's my 1966 Austin Healey 3000 that I restored some years ago. I bought the car in 1968 right after I got out of the Army.

garage mahal said...

Allen
Your last two links go to a page not found.

AllenS said...

They are working for me.

AllenS said...

If they don't work for you, how can I send you to my album?

garage mahal said...

Now they're working.

AllenS said...

Can you imagine sitting on top of that tractor freezing your ass off?

garage mahal said...

Yeah not fun in the wind I bet. I have a short city driveway and that ain't fun sometimes with the snowblower.

Awww! You fuck, now I have to set aside your liberalism and regard you as human. Awwww!

Nichevo said...

And AllenS, good on you for all that work! Gee I wish I knew someone in NY area with the skills etc to help me with my 01 Suburban.

JAL said...

Nichevo -- go online and do a hunt for someone in your area. Or find one of the restoration blogs and ask there.

Have a family member who did an incredible job on an *old* IH Scout. It's all online and a mind boggler what people can do (like Allen S).

Speaking of Allen -- do you put weights on when you move snow? I have a little Yanmar 2000D with ag tires, and wonder how good it will be for moving snow. The bush hog gives me weight in the rear now, but thinking that's not convenient in the snow. We don't get so much here -- the guy down the road with the bobcat and other large toys usually cleans us out (helps that he's a volunteer fireman, also ;-) ). But my driveway and outside the garage will need some help if we get anything big.

AllenS said...

I have wheel weights and tire chains.
