I think I need a new weekend posting ritual....I'm getting bored with just Friday (or Saturday) random music lists. Maybe I'll take random photographs or something. Suggestions are welcome. A photo scavenger hunt would be fun....but someone'd have to give me a list of things to take pictures of.

Photo ideas:
* go on a mullet hunt (but be careful - they can be aggressive, and strike when cornered).

* go on a "my car is a reflection of my vitality" hunt. We could work out a scoring system - middle-aged man in a blue sports car = 5 pts; middle-aged man with a comb-over in red sports car = 15pts, etc.

* how 'bout just some pics of dogs and kitties (everyone loves dogs and kitties). This could be combined with other categories, too - e.g. a mullet walking a pit bull = 5 pts; a mullet walking a shitzu = 50 pts.

If I can snap a picture of a mullet walking a shitzu, I'll die happy.

why not a random photo of whatever you happen to pass between, say, noon and 3 pm every friday? or monday! that would give us a weird look into your life, wouldn't it. :)

How about the Friday 'guess what i found in that bowl in the back of the fridge'? Mine would have been chicken wings from 1/28/06.

Guess I should stick with the music.

(michel: do I get points for being a middle aged man in a 15 year old camry?)

Just integrity points, Barn. Now...if you're sporting a faux-hawk, and blastin' Black Eyed Peas while driving said vehicle...that's another story.

By the way, I like the fridge angle.

Jones, I still think you and Ian should do a podcast (find yourself a Karl Pilkington, and you're set)!

Michel....we'd love to do a podcast. I'm sure I can speak for Ian when I say that. Do you think we could do that over voice-chat? the 1300 mile distance makes it kind of hard, otherwise. And it wouldn't be quite the same dynamic as Gervais and Co....getting to be in studio together.

But, I think you'll agree that there are plenty of potential Pilkingtons hanging around this blogosphere.

In December 1992, I found some peanut butter with an expiration date of March 18, 1987 in my kitchen cabinet. That's my late entry into the the back-of-the-shelf meme.

Is the world ready for Ian-Jones podcast? I hope not, because I really want to do one!

a couple of years ago i found an old 1 litre glas bottle (unopened) of coca cola in my grandfather's food cellar, from the early 70s! he said he bought it sometime when he was sick and never got around to drinking it. or throwing it out obviously. fabulous. i kept it. it's a treasure. it's older than i am. :)

The world will never be ready for an Ian-Jones podcast. That's what makes it fun, in theory anyway.

Who are we to laugh in the face of time-honored traditions of Supply and Demand economics?

Michel, be careful what you wish for...

I may buy a "pod," whatever that is, to get such a "cast."

(Who am I kidding. I don't even own a cell phone...)
