Yesterday I SQUEED over the new catbeard and dogbeard meme and NOW....OMFG there has been an upgrade to cat CAT beards and I can't stop laughing. HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND
PrrrRawr! Whoever came up with this trend deserves a cookie and a raise. LOVE LOVE LOVE Catbeards AND the dog equivalent. Thanks Team Twaggies
If you have a cat, dog, ferret, bunny etc send me your beard pic and I will post it (firstname.lastname@example.org)
EDGEHEADS Jenna & Chloe were the first to send in their dogbeard
When I first heard STP had fired Scott Weiland I thought it was a publicity stunt because STP was originally his band...but now it seems legit since they just announced that Chester Bennington of Linkin Park is their new lead singer. His vocals on this new song remind me of Perry Farrell from Janes Addiction
In a statement posted on their website, Stone Temple Pilots said Bennington was “at the top of the list” when it came time to find a singer for the new music they’ve been working on. “Chester has a one-of-a-kind voice that we’ve admired for a long time,” said Dean DeLeo. “We know Linkin Park will always be his priority, but we thought it would be cool to try something together. We managed to find the time to record a song and we’re all really happy with the result.”
Their first song together is called Out Of Time. Thoughts?
I went home to Guam last month and had the opportunity to visit the War Dog Memorial. The S Tell Newman Center devotes an entire section of their museum to the dogs of war. If you would like to know more there are hundreds of books about the canines who have served. My favorite one is called Always Faithful
If you are going PLEASE wear crazy goggles or 3D glasses and a pan or a colander on your head not because they are so great for deflecting projectile tomatoes but because the pictures turn out so awesome. Snorkels are good too and also bonus points to anyone who dresses up as a weenie or salmon or sea monster.

CONVERSATIONS WITH MY 2 YEAR OLD is my new favorite youtube channel. "Actual conversations with my 2 year old daughter, as re-enacted by me and another full grown man - Episode 1." If you have ever conversed w a two year old you KNOW it is EXACTLY like this and more...lol lol lol
I have read about tornadoes for years but it still boggles my mind what they are, where they come from and where they end up. The last part of this video is surreal. It is as if it evolves from horrifying storm to ratty gray sweater dangling in the void and just within reach
SQUEE my copy of Tales Of The San Francisco Cacophony Society came and it is huge...like 4 times the size of a jar of Nutella. It is glorious. I fell in love with the one eyed monkey in a fez and am swooning over the Salmon Run where members of the society literally dress up like full on SALMON find the nearest foot race and then proceed to run against the flow of runners. It is the most outrageous spectacle. Human size salmon running in the face of befuddled racers. Truly inspired lunacy and exceptionally beautiful book celebrating the spirit of individuality and the importance of omega 3's.
A template for pranksters, artists, adventurers and anyone interested in rampant creativity, Tales of the San Francisco Cacophony Society is the history of the most influential underground cabal you’ve never heard of.
Rising from the ashes of the mysterious and legendary Suicide Club, the Cacophony Society, at its zenith, hosted chapters in over a dozen major cities, and influenced much of what was once called the underground. The Cacophony Society’s epic exploits radically changed the way people live and play in the world. The group inspired Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Cluband Burning Man and helped start pop culture trends including flash mobs, urban exploration, and culture jamming. A large-format, full-color, hardbound homage to this protean group, Tales of the San Francisco Cacophony Society is packed with original art, never before published photographs, original documents and incredulous news accounts.

On a related note there is a documentary about the society called Into The Zone
