It's "Showtime", Folks... or at least the lights are going down.
Only the infinity of the depths of a man's mind can fully tell the story.

Here's a cool tool to show arguments against excessive electrical consumption.

Feeling left out? Party banter regarding LeKZ swirling about you and you haven't got a clue? Then come on over to (Link to FolKZ suppressed by TPTB because it was deemed "offensive".) (Who knew?) and be where the action is! Don't be a wallflower! Impress your date with your knowledge of both sides of the issue! Act now! It's never too late to know what's goin' on and goin' down!
(The preceding message was originally provided by a Friend of LeKZ, and evidently could have been construed as contravening the policies of both H2G2 and the BBC. Thank you.)
Fit the First: O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!
Huzzah! Huzzah! Sound the carpet and roll out the red trumpets!!
(Thanks for the Babelfish, DNA...)
And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

Fit the Second: I Am Borne
Hmmm. I'll need to think long and hard about this introduction business, since I'm normally pretty vague about who/what I am most of the time3. Except those times when I'm frighteningly clear about being vague.
Thank you for your patience.

Fit the Third: Information, Please
I'd say "Watch This Space!", but space is big. Really, really big. Enormous, even. And I don't want the responsibility of the lot8 of you getting a massive collective crick in your collective neck from watching this slowly evolving space thingie. A startingly fresh anomaly here or there, sure - that sort of beginner's luck is to be expected sometimes when the moon is full and it's not a Thursday. But continuous rapid-fire flashes of deathless wit dripping out constantly like a leaky faucet? Sorry, I can't anymore: I quit taking drugs9 before most of you were born.
So (once again) I will rely on my inherently smartass Gemini superiority to snatch my burning butt from the fires of your expectations before you can see what kind of underpants I've got on.
Therefore, I will only be so bold as to say: Watch This Speck in the Space-Time Continuum.
I would like to thank Shea the Sarcastic for posting the link10 that lets you analyze the XML code of anyone's Userpage. This has made it infinitely easier to hopelessly mangle my own attempts at building this page by copying bits of code from those whose page design I admire. (See Ormondroyd)
Go to (http://h2g2.com/h2g2/guide/testuserpageXXXXXX) and use the researcher's number [without the "U"] [Important!] instead of the X's. For example, this page o' mine can be found lining the birdcage or wrapping the fish at this link. A great boon to the HTML/XML beginner.
Fiction, because it is not about somebody who actually lived in the real world, always has the possibility of being about oneself.

Fit the Fourth: Liking Life on My Own Account No Better, I Form a Great Resolution
Well now, if I'm gonna start attempting Guide Entries like I had good sense or something, somebody might accidently wander by and look at this mess - so maybe I oughta put some [euphemism for evacuated fecal matter] here. And-a one, and-a two:
Born: Yes Sex: Now? Today? Race: Hang on - still tying shoes Shave, wax or pluck: Where? Birth Sign: "Sorry for the Inconvenience" Keyword: Ooo, ain't you the clever one, then?
Joints what I got membership cards from when nobody was paying too close attention:
- United Scenic Artists, Local #829
- United States Institute for Theatre Technology (link under investigation)
- American Mensa
- The International Wizard of Oz Club
Places more fun and easier to play with than a short piece of knotted string theory :
- The Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest
- Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar
- Urusei Yatsura
- Rockrgrl Magazine
- Scott McCloud's Zot!
- Otaku World (link under investigation)
- Dr. Pepper1 [maudlin nostalgia freaks] or Dr. Pepper2 [frightening capitalist zealots]
Who I'd vote for if they ever ran for anything:
- National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws
- American Civil Liberties Union
- People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals
- The Names Project
- "Remembering Our Dead" (TG Hate Crime victims)
- The Tree House Animal Foundation
The information on where I stole the idea for, er, was inspired by to create "7rob7" is in there somewhere, as well as more transparent clues revealing what I do for a living. [Really enormous clue here.] Though if I was actually making a living at it I wouldn't have time to post anything. Despite your objections, I will admit that it takes me a while to work out this GuideML stuff to the point that I can attempt these things made of light on the monitor in front of you. Eg: Poof! and Shazam!!
And now, for something completely the same, I will for your entertainment rattle off a list of interests like a porn site so I show up in the H2G2 search engine a lot and really frustrate anyone who clicks here looking for actual information.
In no particular order other than the way they've fallen out of my brain: Alice; Kisekae Dolls (see Otaku World above); Anime; The American South and How It Got That Way; Bellbottoms That No Longer Fit; Guitars; Poetry and Other Marginalized Writing Stuff; Declining English; Films vs. Movies; Science Fiction; Dykes To Watch Out For; Bassoons; Patrick Woodroffe; Queer Theory; Euphuistic Punditry; Riddley Walker; Songwriting; Cirque du Soleil; Teaching; Cats, including Schrödinger's Cat; Home Design and Remodeling for Theatre Technicians; Hedwig and the Angry Inch; Commercially Unsuccessful Comix; Trina Robbins; Rubber Stamps; Peter S. Beagle; Drawing and Painting; Looking Dangerous Chilies Straight in the Eye and Laughing At Them, Ha-ha!; Wicca; Non-nasty Humor That Doesn't Suck Too Bad; Cutey Bunny; Oceans and Cetology; Luddites Online(???); How to Keep Smoking and Live a Long and Useful Life; Promoting Vegetarianism; Oz, Oz, Oz, and more Oz (and not that 'Down Under' one, either) (no offense); Lynda Barry; Walt Kelly; and Stopping Now Before My Fingers Start Bleeding and Making a Mess All Over the Computer.
And a few of the charms which soothe when my breasts are savage :ABBA, Laurie Anderson, Babes In Toyland, Marcia Ball, the Bangles, the Beatles, Betty, Bikini Kill, BIF Naked, the Bobs, Meredith Brooks, Kate Bush, Eva Cassidy, Harry Chapin, the late, lamented Drain STH, Danny Elfman, Eurythmics, Garbage, Phillip Glass, James Hardman, Jack Off Jill, L7, Cyndi Lauper, Phoebe Legere, Tom Lehrer, Billie Myers, Les Mystère des Voix Bulgares, Michael Nesmith11, Randy Newman, Harry Nilsson, Pearls Before Swine, Linda Perry, Rasputina, the Rutles, Jane Siberry, the Tuesdays, Jai Uttal, and Frank Zappa - who remains, along with John Lennon of course, among the many faces of the Supreme Being of Your Choice.
And that's just the clean stuff I figure won't scare anyone off...
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then, I contradict myself.
(I am large, I contain multitudes).
- Walt Whitman, Song of Myself (51)
(You should be glad I don't feel like nattering on about my favorite films and film actors and film directors and film composers and air-popped popcorn and so on.)
Mostly, though, I'm interested in my wife. And I'm very, very not interested in scaring her off.
Be back soon. See if you can tell.
