My favorite song for the moment – I find myself humming it all the time lately. Can’t find any original version though, does anyone know?

I found the guitar tabs! Click here for the chords and here for the picking part (If you start at the fifth fret you get the string notes as they are on the ukelele these guys are playing). Make sure you post your recordings of the song to the comments!

Survival of the fittest

I really liked this cozy story about M&Ms:

Whenever I get a package of plain M&Ms, I make it my duty to continue the strength and robustness of the candy as a species. To this end, I hold M&M duels.


Taking two candies between my thumb and forefinger, I apply pressure, squeezing them together until one of them cracks and splinters. That is the “loser,” and I eat the inferior one immediately. The winner gets to go another round.

I have found that, in general, the brown and red M&Ms are tougher, and the newer blue ones are genetically inferior. I have hypothesized that the blue M&Ms as a race cannot survive long in the intense theater of competition that is the modern candy and snack-food world.

Occasionally I will get a mutation, a candy that is misshapen, or pointier, or flatter than the rest. Almost invariably this proves to be a weakness, but on very rare occasions it gives the candy extra strength. In this way, the species continues to adapt to its environment.

When I reach the end of the pack, I am left with one M&M, the strongest of the herd. Since it would make no sense to eat this one as well, I pack it neatly in an envelope and send it to M&M Mars, A Division of Mars, Inc., Hackettstown, NJ 17840-1503 U.S.A., along with a 3×5 card reading, “Please use this M&M for breeding purposes.”

This week they wrote back to thank me, and sent me a coupon for a free 1/2 pound bag of plain M&Ms. I consider this “grant money.” I have set aside the weekend for a grand tournament. From a field of hundreds, we will discover the True Champion.

There can be only one.

The Pulp Fiction suitcase mystery

*** Check out this post and more at the new location of my blog: ***

What was in that suitcase in the film Pulp Fiction that Jules (Samuel L. Jackson) and Vincent (John Travolta) take so much effort to obtain and protect? This most beautiful explanation found at Snopes put me in complete awe (again) with the depth and eloquence of QT’s movie making – finding out now is like a little chamber in my soul being filled up…

Remember the first time you were introduced to Marsellis Wallace. The first shot of him was one of the back of his head, complete with band-aid. Then, remember that the combination of the lock on the briefcase was 666. Also remember that whenever anyone opened the briefcase, whatever was in it glowed, and they were in amazement at how beautiful it was; they were speechless.

Now bring in some Bible knowledge, and remember that when the devil takes your soul, he takes it from the back of your head. Yep, you guessed it. And what is the most beautiful thing about a person: his soul. Marsellis Wallace had sold his soul to the devil, and was trying to buy it back. The three kids in the beginning of the movie were the devil’s helpers. And remember that when the kid at the end came out of the bathroom with a “hand cannon,” Jules and Vincent were not harmed by the bullets. “God came down and stopped the bullets,” because they were saving a soul. It was divine intervention.

Whatever other explanation there might be, I really like this one for some reason. I guess I’m a believer after all 🙂
