  2. This artist seems interesting, thanks Chumpo.

  4. the last one is “snails racing”….

    what do i win?

  5. Lion man is very cool. Very interesting artist, Chumpo, you’re not as dumb and boring as Pups says you are in his secret emails.

  6. And when you say stuff like this:

    “His is a very vibrant work, with a nice movement and weight.”

    I don’t want to punch you in the junk like I do most other art snobs.

  8. “Snails racing”? More like “Snails fornicating”.

  11. It has a certain scroblocity, & vertrunkenheit.

  15. My heeler pup is driving me crazy with barking in his crate. When I let him out after his breakfast he ran down to the stream and got wet and muddy. After he did his business he got put in the crate to dry off a bit before he rolls on the furniture.

  16. Thanks, you all. I have had a tremendously enriching experience putting theses simple posts together. You shoukd know that I took the same art apreiciation 101 that many of you probably took in school, and that I am neither a trained or working artist. I have a limited background in metal sculpture which I produced in the early 90s for trade show instalations and I may at some point revive that carreer path. I do not paint pictures well and my storyboard drawings of figures can kindly be called “interpretive”.
    I have always liked the art gallery experience and mueseums in general. I spend several hours a week veiwing art on line and in person. One day I would like to host a show in which I interview artists about thier processes and motivations.

  17. Problem is, many of them do not achieve widespread fame until after they’re dead.

  18. I dreamt about gardening last night.

  19. I dreamed of oversleeping last night.

    Then I lived that dream.

  20. “Several hours per week viewing art on line”…..
    Unh huh – right.
    You are ready to step into a guest spot on bbf then.

  21. All the art fans among you MUST visit The Nelson Adkins Museum in KC if you’re ever in town. Also, in Sarasota, you MUST visit John Ringling’s art museum.

  22. I’m still working on not looking at “art”.

  23. I especially liked the one with pac-man. Top notch. Srsly though, these are interesting posts. Thank you.

  24. We’re going to Mystic again today. I’ll have been there three times in two weeks. So weird. We otherwise never go there.

    We drove by Mystic Pizza last week, to visit a legendary clamshack.

    I nearly choked at the price of a carton of wholebellies, but they were so, so good.

    Gonna pick a different shack for lunch today.

    Right now I am grilling bacon to avoid heating up the house. It comes out really nice. This might be a thing.

  25. I like cooking my bacon in the oven on the broiler pan. But doing that on the grill is perfect for summer. Excellent!

    Reminds me, I gotta refill the gas cylinder.

  26. I always pan-render bacon so I have grease ready for eggs or burgers.

  27. Timely reminder on the fried clams lauraw! I may just have to get some this week while I’m on vacation. Whole belly of course. I never knew clams came in strips until I was a teen and saw someone ordering them at a HoJo’s.

  28. On Father’s Day my mom group texted me and my siblings a few old pictures of my dad which made the room a bit dusty. When I replied to the group my sister reminded me that she and my mother were coming up to visit today. We made the plans 2 months ago and I promptly forgot. Of course Paula’s working today 10-10 and we went through the house like a tornado this morning to clean. And by we I mean she did. I shopped and will need to tidy up the house and make it look like we’re not savages living in a hovel.

  29. ace’s Tuesday morning news dump has an article: Conservatives have more self control than liberals.

    The article and comments are interesting.

    I loved this insight(paraphrased): when a conservative thinks he is too fat, he exercises and goes on a diet. If he does not see improvements, he blames himself

    When a liberal thinks he is too fat, he wants YOU to change your lifestyle, the govt. to ban soda and McD to close down. He himself is always powerless to change himself.

  30. Conservatism understands that human beings are imperfect and always will be.

  31. Everyone is an individual, and responsible for himself. We aren’t part of a group.

  32. There’s the answer, Jay you marvelous bastard!!

    Outlaw all Groups.

  33. hi chumpo! Thanks for trying to drag us kicking and screaming into some culture. Thanks a LOT! No really, thanks. Uh huh.

  34. Corporations, partnerships, churches, and clubs are all groups.

    Jus’ sayin’.

  35. Your mom and I often form a group.

  36. Comment by Mr Chumpo on June 23, 2015 1:02 pm

    Your mom will be pissed.

    I have a good friend that is a working artist that shows frequently. I can put you together at some point if it works out for you.

  47. MJ, you can’t use the talent at the Tijuana donkey show as a “friend”.

  48. Ann Arbor’s conservative talk radio station has an art show that’s pretty good, Chumpo: http://www.waamradio.com/shows/saturdays/speaking-of-art

  49. Heh:

    The Blaze

    During Monday’s episode of the ABC daytime talk show “The View,” Whoopi Goldberg and the crew were fooled by a fake news website that claimed pastor John Hagee of San Antonio’s Cornerstone Church wanted women prosecuted if they said “God” during sex.

    I don’t think that many say Oh God during sex with those “ladies”, that isn’t accompanied by a look of horror.

  50. The left has lost their damn mind, they are effing nuts.

    I psycho killed 9 people. They are mental about a flag. Our Country is so very very lost.

  51. Symbols are more important than people for the left, mare.

  52. I think we can all agree that the bowl haircut should have been the first thing to go.

  53. It’s the usual tactic: in a crisis, force something we wanted anyhow.

    We should be capitalizing on crap like this to eliminate gun-free zones.

  54. I think we can all agree that the bowl haircut should have been the first thing to go.

    Oh yeah, sure: now that you’ve gotten rid of yours.

  55. hahaha, Cyn.

  56. I’m listening to Bach Moonlight Sonata and I hate lefties less (but only a little less).

  57. It makes people feel better without actually looking at the problem.

    I like that option. Next time there’s an earthquake I’ll eat a bowl of cereal–something I never do.

    Mare’s face when she hears about the latest outrage.

  62. Good morning, good afternoon, and good evening.

  63. Last time I was at the baby farm with S.O. Cletus he was crying because they were going to make him wash the Pits in the cull room, which is an extraordinarily unpleasant task.

    Me: Nah. You’ll get out of it and I’ll be the poor bastard stuck with that job.

    S.O. Cletus: Huh-uh. I always warsh the Pits in the cull room.

    Today Cletus just had to go to the big farm for breeding, so guess what I got to do. . .

  64. The Hammer of Porcine Justice has landed.

  65. Why are the cull room pits worse than the other pits?

  66. I’m watching this video of this guy cooking a delicius-looking meal. Tell me what you think is making me retch at the monitor.

    http://is.gd/7qHOP0

  67. The culls are hoary old sows that can’t have babies any longer. I guess they’ve been through piggie menopause. Also gigantic boars who are too fat and lazy to bang the hot mama pigs any longer.

    The cull barn always has pigs in it, so it rarely gets washed and a solid three-foot brick of compacted pig shit builds up in the Pits.

  68. OMFG. I just watched another of his videos where he is making salad dressing and does the same exact thing.

  69. This one. I can’t even believe he thinks this is good promotion for his restaurant.

  70. *has major case of the skeevies*

  71. Somebody needs to tell the patrons of this place that this motherfucker basically gargles their food before plating it.

    If you eat at this place you need to add the chef to your sexual history, because he’s sharing a bodily fluid with you.

  72. AUGH!!!!! Nasty.

  73. What an idiot. You’re supposed to wipe the spoon clean on your pant leg before you put it back in the food.

  74. First time I saw it Oso, I was like, “Did he just…AUGH he did! And did it again!!”

  75. I bet he can blow your mind with his canned biscuit hacks.

  76. **makes note to never let Laura watch me cook**

  77. He touched his apron and touched food, too. Nasty.

  78. Hey Xbrad, I taste food when cooking too. But unless I’m just cooking for myself, that tasting spoon either gets tossed into the sink or it gets a quick handwash between uses. I don’t tap my spit into people’s food.

  79. I’ll have the spit tacos with the AIDS sauce.

  80. The real secret to professional cooking is the chef’s saliva.

  81. Comin’ right up!

  82. I take a leak, start chopping stuff, and then wash my hands when they get greasy.

  83. I taste stuff when I’m cooking for just Anita & me.
    NOT if someone else is going to be eating it…

  84. Pork chops with sauerkraut and mac and cheese for supper tonight.

  85. The real secret to professional cooking is the chef’s saliva.

    Saliva? I’ve been doing it completely wrong this whole time.

  86. Bad ews, folks. We should have registered the symbol TTFS for the eventual Nasdaq IPO of The Hostages.

    These guys already have it.

  89. Bad ews, folks. We should have registered the symbol TTFS for the eventual Nasdaq IPO of The Hostages.

    Is TITS taken?

  90. I hate bad ews.

    Is there a symbol for TITS or BBF or HHD?

  91. Ha!

  92. Ha!

    Went for too many jokes at once there, sweetie.

  93. Brevity = wit (soul of)

  94. TITS and HHD are available. BBF is taken.

  95. Pfffft I was searching for a picture.

    I’m funny dammit. And smart. And gosh darn it people like me!

  96. okay, mr. investment …. ummm… guy…. if we could, how much to register TITS and if we do, do we have to use it?

  97. Did anybody tell anybody else that they wouldn’t be welcome as a volunteer for children’s story time at the local library anymore after their attempted reading of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas today?

  98. Speaking of the ewww factor, isn’t it time for Scott’s restaurant leftover spoon story?

    I saw a fat, greasy, hairy guy clip his fingernails at a restaurant. Food was sitting on the table. Worst part, it was pizza. Grossed me out.

  99. This week’s artist doesn’t stay within the lines.

    It’s easy with that nice nylon line and a small boat. Line checking a 2′ manila while springing in a 65 ton tugboat is bit more of a chore.

  118. That was a pretty gruesome injury XBrad. From what I read it was a mortar shell presumably from leaning over a tube as it fired. I’ve read an account of a live RPG embedded in a soldier somewhere in Iraq or Afghanistan. This is the one I remember: http://is.gd/GVTTm2, there were a couple more when I did a search.

  119. ” I don’t tap my spit into people’s food.”
    holy fuk i don’t even use the same utensil twice if im cooking for myself… wtf
    #cleancatch

  120. if you’re cooking correctly, the heat of the food should kill any bacteria

  121. I really do believe that, as a society, we have become ridiculously over-the-top germ-phobic.

  122. Don’t care. I wouldn’t even return to the restaurant that hired a server with hair down to his knuckles. Pretty sure he was related to the owner. Supposed to be the best Italian restaurant in ABQ. Haven’t been back since 1992.

  123. It might, but you should put everything in the sun for a few hours to be safe.

  124. I won’t go through buffet lines if I see people wearing muscle tees or tank tops in line. (I MAY have issues)

  125. If it’s just me: reuse spoon
    If it’s my family: rinse it off with hot tap water before using again
    If it’s for more than above: new utensil

    Then again, I don’t own a restaurant, what do I know?

  126. “Today’s IB moment”

    finger style is awesome!

  127. If it’s just me…..new spoon.

  128. Wiser, in the second video he is making salad dressing. He pulls out a spoonful, puts it in his mouth, then after removing the spoon from his mouth he taps the remainder of the salad dressing that was still on the spoon, into the bowl of dressing.

    This is salad dressing, never to be cooked.

    http://is.gd/LDBTXb

  129. *Resets ears in Lauraws link to factory conditions*

  130. “if you’re cooking correctly, the heat of the food should kill any bacteria”

    you’re probably right – but i work around a lot of chi-com nationals with a hep-x rate of +70% and other interesting pathogens… i used to wade around in swamps as a kid and think nothing of it; times change.

    i’ve prolly spent too many years in a bio lab… we wash and gown and wash and gown so many times a day that i twitch when when i get home… i’ve damn near turned into Monk

    121C for 45 is what we usually use in the lab to clean things

    fire is your friend

  131. My grammo used to leave beans on the wood stove all day. Move away from direct heat…and back. ALL DAY! My mom thought I was a freak for not eating at grammo’s unless I actually watched her cook and ate while it was hot.

  132. This is salad dressing, never to be cooked.

    Ok, I didn’t watch the videos and yes, that’s gross. That’s like double-dipping a crude-etay.

    But I still think people have become a little crazy re: germs. I think that the proliferation of the machines everywhere that dispense anti-bacterial gel is actually harming us.

  133. This afternoon I read a post about a guy that is so fat he has to wrap a spoon with wet paper towels to wipe his ass. No reachy el crack o.

    I wonder if he washes the spoon?

  134. If it’s just me…..new spoon.

  140. Japanese restaurant near us? The employees don’t use the bathroom, they go in the woods behind the shopping plaza.

    oh come on……..

    I call bullshit…..

  141. ’m going to say that on the radio.

    drink name….

  142. …and then you have these things called prions, that aren’t living, and they aren’t viruses, but they are deadly infectious proteins that can’t be destroyed by cooking.

    They can’t even be destroyed by autoclave.

  143. Usually I’m on wiser’s side of this argument, but cooking is something that you have to be careful with.

    5 second rule, not 10. There is no spoon. Let’s be careful out there.

  144. BTW, Sprout, last show until September.

    Come up with something good.

  145. Hmmmm. I assume you mean with flowers, a blender, fruit juices, and a few herbs. Garnished with a little statue of Freddie Mercury.

    Got it.

  146. “I call bullshit…..”

    You can watch if you want. When they aren’t peeing and pooping in the woods, they dumpster dive.

  147. They can’t even be destroyed by autoclave.

    this from a nursing student who is putting herself in far more potentially dangerous situations re: germs than most of us will ever face in any restaurant for our entire lives…..

    I get it. You need to be careful. But we do ourselves no favors being too careful.

    And btw, the bullet with your name on you will find you eventually, no matter how careful you are.

  148. …and then you have these things called prions,

    bovine spongiform encephalopathy.

    Mad Cow Disease.

  149. Wiser, that was the restaurant by Scott’s old store. He saw them.

  150. Hmmmm. I assume you mean with flowers, a blender, fruit juices, and a few herbs. Garnished with a little statue of Freddie Mercury.

    and an umbrella. It must have an umbrella….

  152. Prion diseases are really kind of interesting, if absolutely horrific.

  153. Wiser, that was the restaurant by Scott’s old store. He saw them.

    did you report them? ‘Cause I’m pretty sure there’s regulations against that kinda thing.

  154. When I work Fresh, I go through gloves and hairnets like crazy. Dan is an ass. He handed me a beard net. I’d plucked my chin whiskers.

  155. TMI?

  156. Look, I get the washing your hands after using the restroom and other standard cleanliness activities.

    But when I see people working a cash register wearing latex gloves, I wonder if they even realize A) the potential harm they are doing to themselves re: latex allergies and 2) the pure silliness of that fear

  157. And btw, the bullet with your name on you will find you eventually, no matter how careful you are.

    I also worry about the one addressed “To Whom It May Concern”

  158. I had an old ham bone in the freezer, trying out Chrispie’s recipe:

    http://www.food.com/recipe/slow-cooker-split-pea-and-ham-soup-169041?photo=351420

    Too soon for the spoon test, but when I do test my cooking I always wipe the utensil off on my muscle shirt.

    Will report back tomorrow.

    TN house is about 30% boxed up, hoping for some good Craigslist action in the next 5 days to get rid of furniture and fund the U-haul.

    I called my old boss from two jobs ago to update his contact info for an application I was filling out, he’s actually got some work for me if I’m willing to relocate out West. Denver, maybe San Francisco.

    OH house has had 11 showings, no offers yet.

  159. MJ, it would actually be hilarious if you came back with the manliest drink you could possibly create.

    And then grunted after giving the recipe.

    Call it the “Manly Man Grunt Burp Manly Drink.”

  160. And btw, the bullet with your name on you will find you eventually, no matter how careful you are.

  165. Call it the “Manly Man Grunt Burp Manly Drink.”

    I think there are actually some drink recipes that call for beef broth and such.

  166. Or careless.

    There’s careless and then there’s stupid.

    Honestly, if you are that concerned, you should never go to any restaurant ever and wash everything you buy at a grocery store in a bleach bath ’cause OMG people have touched them!!!

    Or, you can realize that your body is extremely well equipped to protect you from pretty much most of the nasty things.

    I honestly haven’t taken an antibiotic or used that gel for decades and I have basically had one really bad cold. I eat at different restaurants, traveled everywhere and follow some pretty simple rules re: cleanliness.

  167. Chicken sushi, coming right up! Ding ding ding!

    don’t knock it if you haven’t tried it……

  172. I posted a video of a chef who was deliberately/ negligently contaminating a meal with his saliva. Do we agree that it is not okay to allow your spit to get into your patrons’ food?

    As per ushe we had to totes show Uncle Wiser the light cuz he disagrees with errythang.

    *I’m talking like Oso now

  178. Lauraw, I don’t like her, but LIVs I work with say Ina Garten licks her fingers and touches food on her show. Can we agree, if they do this shit in videos…what are they doing when off camera?

  179. MJ, needs moar acronyms!

  180. Hi Cyn. Mind if I shake you down for loose change?

    It’s a long story and after considering if I could get away with feeling you up I decided that A) you’d probably allow it and B) GND would probably giggle and say boys will be boys.

    Or kill me. Not really sure but theories are meant to be tested, non?

  181. Do we agree that it is not okay to allow your spit to get into your patrons’ food?

    cooked or uncooked? Like I said, hot food will kill pretty much all bacteria. Yannow, like.. that;s the reason we cook meats to certain temps…..

    Seriously, I get the gross factor. But my point is that I also think we have gotten a little too crazy re: germs.

    They have sanitizer machines in the produce section. Ummm, if you are that concerned that someone else has touched your watermelon, you might want to consider hiring people to shop for you while you lock yourself in the upper floor of your casino hotel and keep your urine in jars.

  185. WISERBUD WILL EAT A LOOGIE IF YOU COOK IT FIRST

  186. I would soooo be okay if someone touched my watermelon.

  187. WISERBUD WILL EAT A LOOGIE IF YOU COOK IT FIRST

    I can show you things.
    ===
    Hey, restraining order is still in effect. Keep it to yourself.

  191. “someone else has touched your watermelon”

    who’s mom did that?!!

    i demand video proof

  192. Had a guy in my platoon in Hawaii that would eat a slug for a dollar.

  193. So has anyone confirmed or denied that Wiser’s big secret is that a Muppet Baby is on the way?

    “Enquiring minds want to know….”

  194. WISERBUD WILL EAT A LOOGIE IF YOU COOK IT FIRST

    not exactly true.

    I have eaten raw oysters….

  195. Hmm. This blog seems funnier than usual today.

    Must be lw.

    *rolls eyes at xbrad

  196. *Grabs popcorn*

  197. secret?

    oh right….

    *lowers chin

    “secret”

  198. Yes

  199. MJ impregnates that perfect specimen and I will personally fly to “insert hotel here” and hurt him in his special place.

  200. You people are making me twitch.

  201. Had a guy in my platoon in Hawaii that would eat a slug for a dollar.

    Coronas will do that.

  202. And scratch.

  203. Need more time for babeh. Prolly next year assuming she gets medical clearance.

  204. I’ve had escargot a few times. It was good.

    No word on whether or not the chef licked the spoon.

  205. Hand sanitizers in public places don’t kill all microbes, but they have been proven to reduce the spread of flu, colds, and gastrointestinal illnesses. Sanitizers kill most of the baddies that people smear around on surfaces.

    Basically, if you kill most things on your hands, you won’t transmit them to yourself when you rub your eyes, nor will you transmit them to the next surface to be picked up by somebody else.

    Jesus Christ Almighty, this has got to be the only time when Wiser has ever expressed disapproval of an alcohol-containing substance in his entire life.

  206. MJ, Beasn and I want a H2 bebe STAT!!!

    “A guy”, huh? :-)

    —————————
    Can’t xbrad be our H2 baby? He’s already in diapers.

  209. I H8 slugs. I tortured plenty of them. Leeches, too. (Still not a serial killer)

  210. Escargot tacos

  211. Jesus Christ Almighty, this has got to be the only time when Wiser has ever expressed disapproval of an alcohol-containing substance in his entire life.

    My problem is the over-use (abuse) of them. Much like the over-prescribing of antibiotics, they reduce our body’s natural ability to fight back against nature’s attempts to kill us.

    Again, standard rules apply. Wash after using the restroom. If you have a cold, avoid contact and wash more frequently. But if you do get sick, yeah, it sucks, but it also helps build antibodies, which strengthen you immune system.

    At this point, I will sit back and wait for leon’s input…..

  212. MJ, nope. Hank and Aaron are getting too old. Looks like all the pressure is on you and Amanda Huginkiss.

  213. My friend won’t cook chicken and pork on the same grill at the same time. I’ve explained that whole 185fF for at least 20 mins thing to him but he don’t care.

    Okay, me too, but I will actually be sleeping.

  216. My friend won’t cook chicken and pork on the same grill at the same time. I’ve explained that whole 185fF for at least 20 mins thing to him but he don’t care.

    My mom is taking an indefinite break on purchasing any chicken at all, because she heard the bird flu mentioned on the news recently.

  217. My friend won’t cook chicken and pork on the same grill at the same time.

    this is what I’m talking about. We have scared ourselves silly with bad science.

  218. Gah. Egg prices are way up. Having to explain to LIVs…GRRRRR

  219. Gah. Egg prices are way up. Having to explain to LIVs…GRRRRR

    Ok, as much as I try to stay on top of everything….

    The ladies were mentioning this at the radio station today.

    Why?

  220. Are you saying that everyone doesn’t color co-ordinate sponges and gloves to location? (Bathroom 1, 2, and kitchen)

  221. 22 of the 44 mass merchandisers of eggs have been hit with H1N1 and had to decimate their flocks.

  222. ouch

  223. *refuses to be a dick re: “decimate””

  224. Rats. Foiled again.

  225. Annihilate.

  226. Purge.

  227. C I L L Cill my landlord

  228. *refuses to be a dick re: “decimate””

    *too lazy to be a dick re: “decimate” – waits for Hotspur

  229. Cull.

  230. Getting invites for July 4th. Dogs are getting worse about firework noise. Especially blind wiener dog. Why won’t people accept polite declines to invitations?

  231. “But if you do get sick, yeah, it sucks, but it also helps build antibodies, which strengthen you immune system.”

    to a point you are correct:

  232. I read something funny today. During the India Pakistan war of 1971, the Indian Air Force, during a bombing of Islamabad airport, damaged the USAF Beech U-8 light twin belonging to Brigadier General Chuck Yeager, who was a US Military liason to Pakistan.

    Cough.

    Sorry about that.

  233. Yeager is something of an asshole.

  234. XB, seems to be consensus on FB with the Lexicans.

  235. Wow. Chuck Yeager is still alive. I did not know that.

  236. Ha ha ha!

    From Wikipedia:

    “From 1971 to 1973, at the behest of Ambassador Joe Farland, Yeager was assigned to Pakistan to advise the Pakistan Air Force.[25] During the Indo-Pakistan War, Yeager reputedly provided an assessment that the Pakistani Army would be in New Delhi within a week.[26][27]”

    India cut Pakistan in half in the 1971 war that lasted just 13 days. It also took 93,00 Pakistani soldiers as prisoners of war. It destroyed half their navy, one fourth of their air force and one third of their military.

    Good analysis, Mr Yeager.

  237. Chuck Yeager still runs his own Facebook page.

  238. Yes, he does. He’s kind of a douche.

  239. Gen. Yeager (ret) was one hell of a pilot & generally raised cain like a decent moron for most of his life, but his strategic analysis was frankly useless. I mean, I loved his autobiographies, but I wouldn’t classify him as a deep thinker.

  240. G’night, Hostages.

  241. My mom is taking an indefinite break on purchasing any chicken at all, because she heard the bird flu mentioned on the news recently.

    Nice. Ham at $0.79/lb right now, & soon delicious chicken fer $0.59/lb. I will feast like a king next month.

  242. “Yeager is something of an asshole.”

    might make an interesting post

  243. And Jaegermeister tastes something like an asshole…..

    (At least, that’s what Rosetta said)

  244. Uh. I have had many cups of Jaegemeister, & I will not say anything about my wife, but they are not at all alike. Jaeger is far far nastier.

  245. I should have said something else, but the upshot is that german likker is terrible, & the chocolate starfish is not. Always. I mean, depending on who you ask. Aw, never mind.

  246. Your mom’s was pretty awful.

  247. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could wake up
    In the morning when the day is new
    And after having spent the day together
    Derp each other close the whole night through

  248. I read some reference to Idiocracy a few hours ago and I wanted to re-read my movie review post on it from 5 (!) years ago.

    https://thehostages.wordpress.com/2010/04/19/movie-review-idiocracy/

    I’ve spent the last two hours reading the comments and clicking the random links and crying my ass off laughing.

    I think I may need to start hangng out here again on a regular basis because this added a good year to my life.

    There used to be some funny motherfuckers that hung out here and wiserbud was here too.

    Seriously the comments on that post are fucking hilarious.

    Well done jackoffs including Mare. Well done indeed.

  250. A Rosetta visit. About as regular here as the Haley Bopp comet.

  251. HHD is up.

  252. Okay Rosetta, I just ordered your movie. I’ve seen snippets on you tube but never watched the whole thing. Your credibility as a movie reviewer is riding on this. ($5.00 DVD on amazon)
