Egads Drummer Rocks!


I have a number of friends that ask me why I bother with Spaces, and I usually tell them that it is a matter of not having yet another place with another password to memorize.

Last night, though, when I logged in and saw all the new features I was blown away.

Profile pics? New communications options? New navigation?

Way to go, MSN!

March to the Beat of Your Own Drummer

I was on the subway today, and a few stops after mine a girl got on with her boyfriend. They squished into the middle of one of the sections with more floor space, despite the fact that the subway was relatively packed.

She was young, probably late teens, possibly early twenties. Her frame was petite, and she was all bundled up in winter clothes. She had a nice set of headphones* and those of us around her could hear what she was listening to.

At one point during the journey, a song started playing that she must have really liked, because she started dancing. It was so awesome to see someone enjoying themselves so much in an uninhibited way.

It cheered up everyone in the immediate area**.

Why Shaun Rocks

Shaun and I will converse on MSN Messenger quite often. A lot of our conversation is about daily happenings, but occasionally we tend to get silly.

Check this conversation out. I remember laughing so hard I had tears coming out of my eyes.

Of course, if you never watched Transformers you might not get it. Click the conversation to enlarge it…

* – This is not a euphemism.
** – I highly doubt that I would have received as many smiles were I to do such a thing.

  1. More than meets the eye.

    Transformers theme song is currrently my cell phone ringer. I like to leave it loud enough in public places just to see who “gets” it.

  2. * – This is not a euphemism.

    Jorge wants you to know that the girl was wearing nice headphones. On a completely unrelated note, he’d also like you to know that she had an enormous pair of breasts.

  3. I’m glad you’re here to clear things up on my behalf, Dave.

  4. I am thinking I would smile if I saw someone break into dance for the shear joy of it 🙂 And I will leave you fellas to your own comments lol
    Thanks for dropping by Jorge it seems my time has been very limited of late… but I got here!


  5. More than meets the eye?

  6. I’m glad you qualified the ‘headphones’ statement, Jorge. I was actually picturing her ‘headphones’ myself. For some reason, they reminded me of the pair that Angelina Jolie sports.

    I have an unhealthy obsession with that woman.

  7. I think we all do, Court.

    I’m trying to figure out how you get your profile pic in here.

  8. Never mind.
    I rock.

  9. Yes, you do, my friend.

    Yes, you do.

    (By the way, we have a weird conversation on urination started on Dave’s site. I think you should join in. I’m sure you know lots about using urination as a seduction tool.)

  10. I don’t know if you’ll get this comment, but I am not happy with the MSN changes thus far. I am frustrated!! LOL!!!

    Take care and the rant may be there now!


  11. … i struggle with controlling myself with regards to music in public…. there’s nothing worse/better than eavesdopping through a strangers headphones. the good part is you get to get a single serving side of tunes… the bad part is trying to control yourself when you want to shake someone out of their hillary duff reverie.

  12. Why is it that the most unlikely people are always listening to teen pop? ie. the 50-something year man shaking his ass to a little Toxic.

  13. Just yesterday I had to stop myself from standing up in the middle of the subway a belting out a few lines of Meatloaf and Bonnie’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart”

    Turn around, Bright Eyes.
    Every now and then I fall apart!
    And I need you more tonight
    And I need to more than ever . . .
