Mother reads aloud, child tries to understand it, tries to make her proud

A few odds and ends that were lying around The Dude Abides HQ.

This link is to a memo. A memo sent by Matt Stone, the South Park guy, to the MPAA. The MPAA rates movies and the memo is concerning the South Park movie from a few years back. There was some wrangling going on about certain things in the movie.

I can just picture a conference room full of 60 year old guys in suits debating what to do with this movie.

The best part is the p.s.

Funny.

Bozeman is building a $ 16 million dollar, state-of-the-art library. $ 5.85 million is from donations. The rest comes from a series of grants and bonding (taxes). It is a "green building," and only the second such building to be built in Montana.

When completed, it will be the jewel of downtown Bozeman.

I am proud to live in a community that is willing to invest so much in a library. As a nerdy, little kid, I spent a huge amount of time in the library, reading mystery after mystery.

As a nerdy, large adult, I still spend a lot of time reading.

I remain convinced that all the reading I did made me smart(ish).

I am certain all the reading I did resulted in eye-popping SAT and LSAT scores.

But I digress.

That is going to be one incredible library, expecially for a town this size.

"Villagers"

The term "villager" simply doesn't apply to United States citizens.

Oh, we have villages, but we don't have "villagers."

(Don't ask me where this one came from... I found it underneath the ringer. You know, the one with Walter's dirty undies. Whites.)

White people with cornrows = asshats

I like chainsaws.

The resurgence of the "popped collar" is a very unfortunate fashion development.

For the poor sad black kid on Father's Day; remember:

"It takes a village!"
