I ask because as of this post, I've got 110, and some of those are looooooooong.  :)  Any limits to them?  I'm too lazy to delete stuff on a regular basis, so I'd like to know.


Hey, kids.  

So, uh. . .  For Christmas, I got this nifty little "movie trivia day-by-day calendar" thing from Suncoast.  Typical stuff, but as a bonus, at the first of every month of 2004, they put in a coupon for their store, good for that month only, that you can use. . .  to buy stuff. . .  at their. . .  store.  

For example, for January, they've got a "$5 Off any Anime DVD" coupon, for any Anime DVDs regularly priced at $19.99 and above, good from 1/1/04 to 1/31/04.  Now, two things here:  

 - I have no interest in Anime whatsoever;

 -and even if I did, I sure as hell wouldn't be buying anything from Suncoast, with their usually-exorbitant prices.

But anyway, I figured that maybe someone here would be interested, for whatever reason, and rather than just throw the coupons I'm not interested in away, I thought I'd offer them up to you guys.

So, if you want a coupon, just post a reply to this thread, first-come, first-served, and send me a PM with your mailing address, and I'll drop it in the mail for you.

(I will reserve the right to keep any coupons that may interest me--which, flipping through, it doesn't look like that many of them do.  But I'll update this thread each month with a new coupon for that month.)

What do you guys think?  Does this idea suck, or does it suck?   :-\

(And post a reply if you want the $5 Anime coupon for January.)  :)

Watto's Junk Yard / A Festivus, for the rest of us!
« on: December 22, 2003, 11:55 PM »

Many Christmas's ago, Frank Costanza went to buy a doll for his son. He went to reach for it because it was the last one, but so did another man and as Frank rained blows upon him, he thought there could be another way. The doll was destroyed, but out of that, a new holiday was born. It was called Festivus. No, not feminist, festivus. A festivus for the rest-iv-us..........


The Holiday Itself...

During the last few weeks in December when Festivus takes place, families and friends get together at the dinner table and have something called "the Airing of Grievances". Durning this time, we share with family and friends all the ways they had disappointed over the past year.

After the Airing of Grievances, we get together right in the same night to do something called "Feats of Strength". This is where the head of the household tests his/her strength with another friend or family member. The great honour is given out to a different person each year. This year, Cosmo Kramer was given the honor but turned it down to George Costanza as he had an appointment.

Now for the pole. No it is not a tree. A pole, no decorations. Frank Costanza believes that tinsel is very distracting so there are no decorations. The pole is tall, silver, hollow, long, skinny, and heavy.

[The text here, I lifted from a similar post I made last year at R-------m (which I lifted from somewhere else before that).  The images, I stole from some other site just now.]

Anyway, Happy Festivus, Everybody!!!

Turkey & Gravy soda on the table for Thanksgiving


SEATTLE (Reuters) - Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings: cranberry sauce, stuffing and turkey gravy-flavored soda. Yummy?
In the latest food fad to emerge in the United States, Seattle specialty soda maker Jones Soda Co. scored a hit this week with the introduction of a limited batch of Turkey & Gravy-flavored soda.

The tan-colored soda sold out in just three hours after an initial batch was put up for sale on the company's Web site Friday, a spokeswoman for the company said.

Proceeds from the online sale, where two bottles of Turkey & Gravy soda sold for about $11, were donated to Toys for Tots, a children's charity. Local retailers will start selling the soda Monday.

Jones Soda said it would be up to local stores to set prices for Turkey & Gravy soda. Other sodas from the company typically cost $1 to $1.50.

This isn't the company's first experiment in exotic carbonation. Fish tacos and ham flavors have also been offered as promotional soda flavors.

Looking at the stats at the index page, that's the most-ever users online I can remember.

There's not really a point here, I guess--I suppose it's just nice to see more people hanging out here.

Watto's Junk Yard / G.I. Joe PSA Remixes
« on: November 13, 2003, 11:32 AM »
I posted this over at R-------m a few months ago, but, for whatever reason, it never went anywhere, so I'll give it another shot here:

(Beware:  Some language is unsafe for work, so you might want to turn the speakers down a little lower.)

Hey, kid!  I'm a computer!


(Interesting Virex Trivia:  I've never seen a full episode of the G.I. Joe cartoon, or any of the movie, for that matter.  Same goes for Transformers.)   :o

(I still think these things are hilarious, though.)

For as a couple of you know, one of my dreams is to be a part of a Star Wars-themed message board for adults, where people can curse to their heart's desire, and I think that allowing us to use this naughty, naughty word here is potentially a big step in that direction.

Obligatory Gaywad Star Wars Fanboy Quote (#2 of the day!):

"You've just taken your first step, into a larger world. . ."

Thanks again, guys.

Watto's Junk Yard / What's spinning?
« on: October 31, 2003, 12:07 PM »
(Do you like that title?  "What's spinning?"  I thought that sounded at least somewhat original--I mean, GH has the "What are you listening to?" thread, and there's a "What's in your CD player?" thread at R-------m, and I think there might have even been one here before, too.  But what the hell.)

Now playing:  Aimee Mann, "Calling It Quits", from Bachelor No. 2.  Good stuff.

Any recent purchases worth noting?  Anything good coming up?

Are you like me?  Do you like the rock n' roll?  Yuh. . .  yuh got any gum?
