Because of some random free association, I went back and read one of my favorite literary passages -- Kent's dressing down of Oswald -- for the first time in a number of years. It always makes me smile.

Oswald
Who do you take me for?

Kent
A knave; a rascal; an eater of kitchen scraps; a base, vain, shallow, beggarly, three-shirts-to-his-name, wage-earning, filthy, untailored knave; a yellow-bellied, litigation-happy, wretched, mirror-primping, officious, finicky rogue; a one-trunk-owning slave, who would pimp if it were his duty, and is nothing but a mixture of knave, beggar, coward, panderer, and son and heir of a mongrel bitch: one whom I will beat into clamorous whining if you deny even one syllable of these titles I've given you.

PS: I'd forgotten just how styleforvm-appropriate the passage is. Especially the part about pimping.

I wish. :cry: I obviously need to plan more trips to St. Louis around your operatic calendar.

At home, the Riverside. That quote in particular is just a random Google find, though. Is it off, I was just retyping and not reading that closely.

It's a modern (and weird) translation...

Good catch. It did seem a little weird as I was typing.

KISS is playing "Hide Your Heart" on the current tour. That is a straight up underrated tune I remember when it appeared on the scene was in high school times.

I was having trouble figuring out the right combination of settings for a program to do what I wanted it to do. Wouldn't you know it, the answer came to me while I was taking my morning glories!

You think about software while wanking?

500ml beers are cheaper than 375ml beers. So. Buying tall boys.

 

@Bhowie, at my nearest convenience store, both Sapporo and Asahi are cheaper in 500ml cans than they are in 375ml cans. The difference is only about 50 cents, but still. The larger cans aren't on sale or on special or anything. Regular price. Any idea what's going on here?

I often see a handle of something for less than a 750ml. Not so long ago Tito's vodka was $2 less for a handle than a 750ml at a local chain store. I can't imagine why you'd even bother with shelf space for those 750ml bottles right next to the handle selling for less.

I just discovered the AMAZINGNESS that is spotify.

And it's free to boot!
