Obvious statement is obvious: Lots of little things going wrong is still not as bad as one really bad thing.

There are very few places left in or around Los Angeles where you can get a drink in a skull mug that's been set on fire.

Sing For Your Health!

I made a Webquest for my EDSP 430 course at Cal State Los Angeles (Information and Technologies In The Classroom). It gives a 5th grade class with access to the internet the task of creating their own karaoke songs to educate their classmates on important health issues. CLICK HERE or the image below to see how it's done!

Japanese cover to Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3

I ordered this one before last Christmas and it finally arrived yesterday. Is this the first video game to feature Dr. Strange on the FRONT cover*? Answer: Yes it is.

He's on the back cover too!

* See comments for this post provided by Ptor of Sanctum Sanctorum Comix for earlier video game BACK COVER appearances of Dr. Strange.

Into The Zone: The Cacophony Society Movie - PREMIERE

This past Saturday I went down to Santa Ana (about an hour South of Los Angeles) to the Yost Theater for the benefit preview of Jon Alloway's documentary on the Cacophony Society, "Into The Zone".

The movie took about 15 years to make, and it's a fantastic labor of love. An incredibly inspiring and fascinating look at the chaos created by The Cacophony Society, the group who not only inspired Fight Club's Project Mayhem, but were the instigators behind SantaCon, Burning Man, Punk Rock Circuses, and Bike Rodeos. This movie will perpetuate that insanity for a whole new generation.

I'm in the film in a few scenes. You can see me at the Cacophony event we had for the Hale Bopp suicide ufo cult and briefly during Potty Con performing the "Caca Cabana".

There's also video of the clown orgy, which up until this weekend I only thought was a myth. (I wasn't there for that one.)

Here's some pix I originally took in 3D at the event, so most people in the photos are trying to "do something 3Dish"...

More website traffic woes

I'm working hard to get things up and running on the website by the end of the weekend to deal with the greatly increased site traffic. Thanks to everyone for visiting and if some pages don't load for you this weekend, try again on Monday.

Thursday, February 2, 2012

My entire website is being bombarded with traffic today

Most pages get a 503 error or are only partially loading.

Can someone please tell me where all these people are coming from?

ADDENDUM: This You Tube posting seems to be the culprit!
