"That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the absence of grace."
-- William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties
I hope kitten makes turducken for Thanksgiving.

-!- Irssi: Starting query in slashnet with kitten
<kitten> http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0417148/
<kitten> WTF.
<kitten> "So, what ideas do you have?"
<kitten> "Uh... well, there's these snakes, right?"
<kitten> "I'm listening."
<kitten> "And they're on a plane..."
<kitten> "I'm giving you 20 million dollars."
<bda> Welcome like to Last Month's Meme I Didn't Care About, I'm your host, Bryan Allen. Our guest tonight is Andy "kitten" Zebrowitz, from Atlanta, Georgia.
<bda> How you doin' tonight, kitten?
<kitten> Well, Bryan.
<kitten> I didn't hear about it until today.
<kitten> You see, unlike some sad net losers, I have a social life.
<kitten> It prevents me from obsessively combing movie boards eveyr five mintes for breaking news.
<bda> Weak return.
<kitten> But I do have some breaking news here.
<bda> Though you'll notice the whole "I Didn't Care About" bit.
<kitten> We now go live to Bryan being a fucktard.
<kitten> Bryan?
<bda> Hey, again, guys. Bryan here, just want to make sure you all know that the trick is to bang the rocks together.
<kitten> We're hilarious.
<bda> Must have missed the funny part.
<kitten> Well, we are.
<kitten> ...
<kitten> You're going to embarass me in front of my friends, aren't you?
<kitten> And Carrie.
<kitten> God, I hate you.
<bda> I don't see how.
<bda> I don't prance about in leather letting people smack me.
<bda> Oh.
<bda> Or am I embarrassing because I *don't* do that?
<kitten> Precisely.
<bda> This is like that episode of the Twlight Zone, isn't it!
<kitten> Which one?
<kitten> The one where everyone had changed but the guy stayed the same?
<bda> Where they pull the bandages off the chick and she's hot, then they cut to the doctors and nurses and they're all hideous.
<bda> I'm the hot chick in this scenerio, apparently.
<kitten> ...you're not a hot chick.
<kitten> No.
<kitten> What?
<kitten> No.
<kitten> Go away.
