Bag of Randomness for Wednesday, October 11, 2017

  • The older I get, the more I have to come to grips that I will never be as country a Marie or as rock and roll as Donnie. Did you know that Donnie has his own furniture line?
  • I like to play the celebrity age game with WifeGeeding because she’s so darn good at it. I’d say, at least 97% of the time, her guess is within a year of the actual age.
  • I’ve been hearing a lot of people sing Toto’s “Africa” quite a bit as of late.
  • Speaking of old songs, A-ha recently did MTV’s Unplugged (yup, it’s revived) and their acoustic version of “Take On Me” is great. That video has to be in the top-five of iconic 80’s videos, eh?
  • I can’t identify a single St. Vincent song and I doubt I can pick her out of a lineup, but I think she has a really cool stage name. Neil Diamond, believe it or not, isn’t a stage name but his real name.
  • Just in case any of you need to wake up, TD Jakes has a message for you.
  • The U.S. Army awarded 20 Medals of Honor to soldiers of The Battle of Wounded Knee.
  • Good behavior
    • More than 6,600 inmates have donated $53,863 from their commissary funds to help victims of Hurricane Harvey.
  • I often hear football fans wish the NFL would adopt such-and-such rule from the college game and vice-versa. No complaints here, I like seeing different variations of the game.

    I would be interested in you adding a bullet point to each days BOR where you explain the leading picture. What in the world made you find a pic of an Isaac doll today? I am VERY interested in the picture you used yesterday, where it is from and why you used it.

    • Geeding says:

      I’ll consider it. Most of the time I find one that I think could be a potential top of the post pic while just browsing here and there and file it for later.

    I wouldn't want the randomness and mystery of the photos being taken away by an explanation. If you do a reverse image search on Google, you can usually find out something about it. The Isaac action figure was part of a set of all of the characters. Apparently action figures of 80s tv show characters was a thing. The weird photo from Monday was from the awkward family photos blog.

      I tried the Google Image search and while it directed me to the awkward family photos blog I couldn't find the photo on the page it directed me to. But I only gave it a cursory look.
