OK. I'm sure this comes as a surprise to no one at all, but Pandora is NOT good at putting together a decent "punk channel". I fed it Social Distortion, the Dead Kennedys, and D.O.A. (the Canadian punk band, not the British goth band). It played utter crap. I added the Sex Pistols. Finally started getting some decent music, but still, more often than not, mellow music. Who wants mellow punk?

So I bit the bullet and added The Clash.

NOW I'm getting good music. Just had to put in a band that people actually listen to for Pandora to figure it out...

I quit Pandora for this reason. I have a thing about rock with big horn sections... Chicago before they started to suck, Blues Brothers, etc. And Pandora kept giving me absolute s@+&. And Spotify gave me s++#. IHeartRadio was surprisingly not awful.

I will unabashedly admit that I like a lot of the "girl" singers, from Pink to Lady Gaga to Gwen Stefani to (*gasp*) Britney Spears (her music gets better as you get older. Go figure) or even Taylor Swift (yes, you may throw me out of your club now).

But I cannot tolerate whiny guy singers. Ever. For any reason.

Oh, and Impus Major's first final grade came in -- a solid 94% on the final exam in math, for the second year in a row pulling off the "miracle final" to bring his grade from a solid B to a solid A.

I don't know what goes on in his brain during his math final, but if I could bottle and sell it...

Yesterday I learned that a pack of 20 piranhas can strip a human body of all flesh and organs in only 15 minutes.

I also lost my job at the local swimming pool.

There is a difference between knowledge and wisdom. For instance, knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting them into a fruit salad.

I lost most of my sense of smell as a child, which is a blessing at my job xD

I never knew what caused it, but it didn't affect my sense of taste, which is weird.

My grandfather insisted the best painkiller was ice. It's not addictive, and is extremely effective if you pour whiskey over it.

When I took microbiology I discovered that I can easily identify bacteria by their odor. This is not a good thing when it's your job to clean the bathroom. :(

Well, a lot of them have characteristic odors. I couldn't identify pseudomonas aeruginosa by its odor, and it put me into disadvantage with other people who could. But fortunately we don't depend on identifying it like that.

Did you know Britney Spears' music was almost entirely written by the lead singer of 4 Non Blondes.

I have over 500 CDs of every music genre, so I've never even tried Pandora.

Didn't Pandora have a box in which resided all the evils of the world?

Odd choice of name for a music streaming service.

Is that 500 of each music genre or 500 total with every genre included?

Ah, the kids' last day of school, then all kinds of entertainment for the rest of June and early July:

  • Saturday is our next Crimson Throne game, and the last 'til late July. It's amazing how once you get more than 4 adults in a room, scheduling becomes nigh-impossible
  • Tuesday is my attempt to scale Cathedral Lake in a single day. Whee? Oh, and I turn 50
  • The next week is our "family trip" to Ashland. Unfortunately, since my family treats NobodysWife like dirt, she isn't coming (and hasn't for years). I like the way she puts it: "I'd rather work than go, and I don't mind telling them that."
  • After that we're doing Hawaii rather than Disneyland this year. I'm beginning to stress a bit because the family is treating it very much like a Disneyland trip where you just show up and do things, and I keep having to say, "It's a state, not an amusement park! We actually have to plan and make reservations and stuff!"
    I suspect a great deal of sleeping in and lazing around on the beach will occur.
    Ah, well, not my cup of tea, but not particularly stressful, either

  • Anyway, time to prep breakfast for the kids for the last time this month! Woo hoo!
