What if Wes Anderson directed X-Men?

I totally would have enjoyed the X-Men films in this style MUCH more (with the exception of First Class, which was awesome).

Aquarium Maintenance Crew

Confounded algae. Meet the new maintenance crew! 2 Snails, 1 Plecostomus, and 3 Otocinclus. They join the established Albino Cory Cat.

55 gallon freshwater community tank. Established for about a year. Algae just now starting to get unruly. Who else is an enthusiast? Love my tank!?

SHARKNADO 3 – Really!

I have not been keeping up with the news – just found this out today! I am more excited than I should be. LOL ;-)

The sharks take bite out of the East Coast when the Sharknado hits Washington, D.C. and Orlando, Florida. Mark Cuban as President of the USA and Ann Coulter as V.P. They join a rapidly growing list of guest stars set to cameo in the third film, including Bo Derek as May, the mother to star Tara Reid's April; Jerry Springer, appearing as Mr. White, a manic tourist; 'N Sync's Chris Kirkpatrick as a pool lifeguard; and Chris Jericho, who will play Bruce, a roller-coaster ride operator.

Need your comments – Help us with a brotherly challenge!

I challenged +Keith Cramer to a challenge. Loser has to go out in the snow this weekend in only a bathing suit and be made into a snowman. Indiana. In March. Just saying.

By the end of today, on this post or the original, dedicate a song by title or YouTube link. One to me. One to Keith. +Halfdan Reschat will compile the choices into playlists that will be voted on. Loser freezes his junk.

Scott and Keith 2015 Musical Snowman Challenge

This one's for any of you who remember me and my brother Keith and our love of shenanigans.

My G+ stream has been a little quiet lately unless you are into color changing dresses or llamas. So, I was sitting around listening to music and self reflecting and I thought, "Self reflecting self, I wonder what kind of songs people would come up with that make them think of me?" Then I said aloud, "I'm going to put up a totally self indulgent post and ask them!" But on my way to post, I started wondering what songs people would choose for +Keith Cramer. I sure hoped that my awesome playlist would be better than his "not as awesome as mine" playlist.

Challenge time! And the best ones are the ones where poor Keith is just sitting at home minding his own business with no idea what I'm getting him into. ;-)

PART 1:
By the end of day Tuesday, come up with songs that represent me and Keith to you. Post them in the comments. +Halfdan Reschat, also sitting at home minding his own business, because of his status as Challenge Overlord (and having hung out with both of us IRL), will put together a mix for both of us from your suggestions.

PART 2:
Halfdan will decide how people shall vote on these playlists to see who is the most awesome and who is OUT IN THE COLD (that's foreshadowing, folks).

PART 3:
Oh, ze punishment. Loser gets to go outside next weekend in a bathing suit and be made into a snowman. Did I mention we live in Indiana? In February March?

Spocking Fives

Way to go, Canada! Wonder which bill in the U.S. we could deface…

From a limited post via +Eva Chan? and +Chad W Darroch?.?

Canada’s “Spocking Fives” Phenomenon Surges In Tribute To Leonard Nimoy
Doodle-driven Canadians have been cleverly defacing their five dollar bills for years, turning the portrait of former Prime Minister Sir Wilfrid Laurier into the pop-culture figures he eerily resembles: Spock (seen here) and Harry Potter’s Severus Snape.

RIP Leonard Nimoy

I knew him as Spock and the host and narrator from In Search Of. I got to hear him speak at a convention once and he just seemed like a really great guy. I remember him telling a story about William Shatner pranking him on the set of Star Trek by hiding his bike, I think it was. It came across that he kind of thought Shatner was, at best, really annoying. Some of you a bit older yet than I might also remember Nimoy as the character Paris from Mission Impossible. Before the internet and access to most any song you want, I went in search of the Mission Impossible theme song; ended up buying an album by Nimoy entitled "Mr. Spock's Songs from Outer Space" with him in costume as Spock on the cover. The theme song was Nimoy playing folk guitar. ;-) I still have it sitting around the house.

You will be missed Leonard Nimoy. I fully expect #thebigbangtheory  to do a tribute episode.?

Morning Words

"Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation."
- Oscar Wilde

I was unable to find an image credit, but kudos to the folks in this picture. Well played. It fit my mood for this quote.

The above quote is from De Profundis (Latin for "from the depths"), a letter written by Oscar Wilde during his imprisonment in Reading Gaol, to Lord Alfred Douglas.

Saltine Challenge with Brit & Madster

The girls instructed me earlier today I would be doing several challenges with them. In this one we had to (try to) eat 10 saltine crackers in 60 seconds. I thought, "No problem." Well……. ;-)?

Chubby Bunny Challenge – Brittany, Maddie, Scott

When you have teenagers and a propensity to do silly things all on your own anyway, you end up doing things like the "Chubby Bunny Challenge". The kids did the "Smoothie Challenge" earlier in the evening and they were on a roll. Personally I think it would be more name appropriate to stuff marshmallow Peeps in your mouth, but hey, not my challenge meme!

I've been around these kids a lot and have seen them go through my kitchen like locusts. I think they gave up on this one way too easily. Feeling played!

I definitely challenge +Keith Cramer? to this challenge. Maybe up the ante a bit… Marshmallows covered in hot sauce. Heh heh.

Cramer Clan Does the Smoothie Challenge (Video)

+Brittany Samples?? and +Maddie Cramer?? invited +Charlie Cramer?? over to the house to do the "Smoothie Challenge" tonight. 15 food items ranging from chocolate syrup to pickles picked randomly by each of them and then blended into their own very unique smoothies.

After the kids tasted their concoctions, I gave each of them a try. Then +Keith Cramer?? succumbed to peer pressure and took a turn. +Lori Cramer?? did a "finger touch taste" prior to any of us, which was probably the brightest way to do it.

Watch the video at the following link!

Slimy Piece of Worm-Ridden Filth – Life Inside Jabba the Hutt

Great documentary on one of the galaxy's most well known villians. No wonder Luke's Jedi mind tricks wouldn't work on Jabba! He needed to be aiming at three bodies inside him! ;-)

From the link:
After interviewing one of Jabba’s main puppeteers, filmmaker Jamie Benning created a 20-minute mini doc celebrating the galaxy’s most despicable slug-like crime lord called Slimy Piece of Worm-Ridden Filth – Life Inside Jabba the Hutt. Puppeteer Toby Philpott talks through the creation of the Jabba puppet, possibly one of the most expensive puppets ever made, and how the team was able to pull off some of Jabba’s more elaborate moves. Accompanying Philpott’s monologue are behind-the-scenes footage of Return of the Jedi and tons of interesting insights.

Art for Today

I discovered this while searching for an image to represent how I feel when in the grip of headaches that take me down. For the record, I'm not a pretty young female; three strikes. However, the disarray of the mixed media form and the expression resonate with me. Now add tiny demons with jackhammers for limbs and you have my early morning. Oy.
