Musical Throwback: A Virginia State Song
16 years ago today, I released my submission for the Virginia State Song competition.
Listen to Hail Virginia (590KB MP3)
Listen to the marching band arrangement (560KB MP3)
I think it stands the test of time quite well, especially given the fact that it took another 8 years for an actual song to get selected!

Earthquake Anniversary Day
Ten years ago today was the most destructive natural event to ever hit northern Virginia -- a 5.9 earthquake . Thankfully, we all survived.

Recital Day: 20th Anniversary Nostalgia
Here is the long and unnecessarily verbose recital program I created for my music recital 20 years ago. I sacrificed my spring break in my final semester to stay in town, print 175 copies on the constantly jamming music department printer, and painstakingly bind them on a real binding machine.

List Day: 10 Children's Books You've Never Read
An instructional text for young readers, reminding them that everyone occasionally gets constipated -- it's perfectly natural and nothing to be ashamed of. Light-hearted pictures illustrate the various ways to combat a backed up drainpipe, from bran muffins to enemas.
Gently normalizes the lifestyle of a single mother and her daughter as they flee from state to state, avoiding unsympathetic judges, and the custody rights of a deadbeat father.
A cautionary tale of a puppy's encounter with childhood obesity, from playing too many video games and watching Blue's Clues.

It's Day 60 of my self-quarantine. We're still doing this.
Since I have nothing new to report, I went back through all of my old blog posts to see what we did in other Mays throughout history. Here is a representative image from each one.
May, 2002 : I used to use Yahoo TV as a TV Guide.
May, 2004 : We all played Footmen Frenzy.
May, 2005 : I reached level 60 in World of Warcraft for the first time.
May, 2006 : I organized my CD collection.
May, 2007 : I had a caption contest (#3 won).
May, 2008 : I proposed an alternative to the Silve...

I was trolling through old URI! Zone posts in search of material to write a Time-lapsed Blogography Day update and stumbled across this excerpt from a Weird Search Day 8 years ago.
Google Search term : really bad "your cat's so fat" jokes
Your cat's so fat, she has eleven lives.
Your cat's so fat, she sinks in the litter box when she pees.
Your cat's so fat, she rolled over a lab puppy and turned it into a pug.
Your cat's so fat, she lands on her yards instead of her feet.
Your cat's so fat, she says, "WEow".
Your cat's so fat, Virginia Tech put a glass window in her belly.

I'm on leave for the rest of the week, so enjoy this old post about my first trip up Old Rag Mountain written 8 years ago today.

It's the ten year anniversary of the time I cast the movie of my life . My casting choices have stood the test of time, although I'll need to make two changes based on actor deaths:
Jason Chrisley. . . . . . . Damon Herriman
Mark Connor . . . . . . . . Michael Chiklis
Also, I didn't know Rebecca at the time. Who do you think should play her in the movie?

Happy Veterans Day! Thankfully, we have gotten past the milestone where the date can be written with neverending strings of 1s, greatly suppressing the number of date-related posts you can expect on Facebook today. In fact, today's date string, 111114 (or 141111 if you prefer order-of-magnitude sorting like me, or 11112014 if you're one of those pansy programmers already worried about a Y3K bug) has absolutely no significance in the natural or man-made world. The only time you will ever see 111114 in other contexts is if you do really, really poorly on a binary math exam.
I am working today, but using the holiday as an excuse to take the day off from new website content, since the intern who transcribes my p...

Because of the holiday, I can repost my original mashup of the themes from Halloween and Doogie Howser, MD and call it a real update.
Listen (2:00 MP3, 2.7MB)
Happy Halloween! I hope you are giving or receiving some big candy bars this evening. Halloween, like marriage, is all about giving and receiving.

I wrote this animal-themed Bejeweled clone back in March 2003 (probably as a way to procrastinate on something grad-school-related) and just rediscovered it last night. If you are one of those ancient dinosaurs that still has a security-hole-ridden Java plug-in installed in your web browser, you can play it below!
Applet has been removed. Hope you enjoyed it!

I spent the entire weekend working, and have no updates for today. Perhaps you should visit Booty's homepage

Hail Virginia Redux
Five years ago today, I composed a new Virginia state song , insignificantly outraged that the land of yearly car inspections had been without official music since 1998. Because of its saucy lyrics, the previous song, "Carry Me Back", was designated by the General Assembly as "state song emeritus". (For those of you who did not go to college, this means that the song has the obligation to show up at least once a week and look pretty in the brochure, but is under no obligation to actually teach anything).
There's probably a touch of favouritism involved when Virginia isn't allowed to say "old darkey", but Arkansas can have an overtly sexual song called "You Run Deep In Me" and innuendo-oozing lyrics like "mall...

Stuff In My Drawers Day
Apparently, I also like to smash snails with a cricket bat and wear cast-off costumes from Reading Rainbow.
Being only five years old, I am unable to apply the concepts of perspective to my drawings. I also like to sign my name on every page of this book.
My sister is black, and is also a unicorn.
Our house is actually in Barcelona, which is currently under an air raid alert.
Yellow milk is delicious. Olives are still delicious. I like to sit at the table and expect people to serve me.
Because I attended school in the 80s, it w...
