Notes on an overheard conversation about “Muskrat Love” as it played on satellite radio

“If you would have asked me who sang that, I wouldn't have been able to answer.”

“Wow! Captain and Tennille! That takes me back.”

“Me too.”

“Do you want to know what else the Captain and Tennille reminds me of?”


“The Bionic Watermelon.”


The Bionic Watermelon.”

“You are weird, sir.”

Notes on a seriously first world problem

“채널 하나 둘 셋 …”

“Why is the TV speaking Korean?”

“채널 하나 둘 넷 …”

“I don't know. It just started happening!”

“채널 하나 둘 다섯 … ”

“Let me see … wait! The configuration menu is also in Korean!”

“당연하지 …”

“I guess we're just going to have to learn Korean.”

“무아하하하하 …”

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site:, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.
