In the land of dubious achievements

I have a new game… It’s trying to get the lowest possible score in Rock Band while simultaneously trying to get the highest possible percentage. This was my first attempt — I’m sure I can do better/worse. Basically I play a bad note on purpose everything three or four good notes (playing more than ten in a row right is a “fail” in this game), staying in the red but without getting boo’ed off stage.

No, I’m not wearing pants. Why do you ask?


Edit/7PM: Scrub that — the “Going Country” pack just got released for PS3, so I’m downloading that now and will spend an hour driving Caitlin crazy.

So a couple days ago I asked Caitlin if I could make her a shirt for her blog, and she said, “sure, make one of me and subway Santa… so I did and I liked how it truned out, only to find out she was only kidding. Muses need to learn not to abuse their power, sheeeesh.


* Yes, I will gladly sell you one… Caitlin super-fans only!

Since we leave next week for Mexico, I of course lost my passport, leaving me rushing to get a new one. Thankfully that only takes 24 hours. Do you think the beard is a good way to keep facial recognition software from being too effective? It definitely makes me look like I’m on the run, that’s for sure.


Well, I guess I’ll go put some pants on — Caitlin recently bought me four new pairs, since all of mine were riddled with crotch-holes, popped buttons, and caked with paint — so I can run some errands before I pick up Nefarious from school and bring her to the airport so she can visit her mother for the holidays.


  1. That’s the best shirt ever!

    Scotts beard always makes him look like he’s a criminal in passport pics. He just got those little photos taken for his gun app stuff and we were like this picture looks like a man who already owns a lot of guns. And shouldn’t.

    Somehow, I think the facial tattoos are probably going to be a pretty strong recognition trait. They’ll likely show up the same way as scars.

    Of course, I guess that could be used to your advantage. Add a bit of dermablend and they’re gone.

    Pick “customize” and you can change the logo size and so on, or even add your own elements!

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
