Bag of Randomness


  • That photo above if from this article – Astronaut Scott Kelly shares photos of Texas shot from space
  • I noticed Stonebriar Centre Mall in Frisco has a new Lego store.  In the very back they had them grouped in different colors which I think you could buy in bulk.
  • One of our dogs got out yesterday but luckily he was pretty easy to find.  I haven’t seen my neighbor that’s employed by our local NFL franchise in a while, but when he saw I was looking for my dog he got out of his truck and offered to help.  So far I haven’t seen him work on his lawn this year, but I poop you not, he got out of his truck shirtless only wearing jeans and footwear.  Compared to what I’ve seen in the past, he hasn’t manscaped in a while.
  • Kurt Cobain’s daughter has recently spoke about her father’s death publicly for the first time, this part stood out – I don’t really like Nirvana that much [grins]. Sorry, promotional people, Universal. I’m more into Mercury Rev, Oasis, Brian Jonestown Massacre [laughs].
  • I think ISIS is starting to understand they can do a lot more damage with cyber-terrorism than with brick-and-mortem terrorism.
  • I recently discovered an option in the Chrome browser that allows you to mute a tab, you just have to enter enter the following into browser bar: chrome://flags/#enable-tab-audio-muting
  • One more Chrome note, if you like to comparison shop, check out the ShopGenius extension.
  • I got a good chuckle last night when Scott Pelley started his conversation about retirement with 78-year-old Bob Schieffer, “Bob, I hail from ’60 Minutes’ where people don’t usually retire at such a early age.”  Schieffer replied, “Well, I thought I was finally old enough to be on ’60 Minutes’ if they want me.”
  • There’s a Grantland article about Dale Hansen – You Stay Classy, Dallas: How a Texas Sports Anchor Became an Internet Sensation – Some people will be upset this will just inflate his ego, I’m just thankful we have the guy.  He’s far from perfect and often irritating, but he’s passionate about local sports at the pro and high school level and he just so darn entertaining.  I actually thought the article was be some fluff piece, but it’s pretty thorough with comments from Randy Galloway, Mike Rhyner, Brad Sham, Chuck Cooperstein, and Ed Bark.  It was interesting that he called Troy Aikman before going on his Jim Garrett criticism, the father of the Cowboys head coach, and I’m surprised his salary of $300,000 is mentioned.  It use to be $445,00o back in 2012.
  • I really, really enjoyed the music on last night’s ‘Louie’, and I hope Morgan O’Kane’s music will start to sell.  That show also made me crave fried chicken like all get out.
  • Today’s dose of ‘MURICA!
  • The 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War, which was yesterday, sure was downplayed.
  • The White House modernizes its homepage with new responsive design
  • VP Joe Biden with a pacifier in his mouth
  • This Former Nazi Neighborhood on Long Island with Adolf Hitler Street Still Exists
