The Mantras 'The Mantras'

It has been a long week for me and yesterday, I have finally mastered something that has been a thorn in my side. A turd in the back of my pick-up truck. A carcass rotting in my hallway. A booger in my coffee…

I have finally learned how to make… I think they’re called “hyper-links” or something… You know? Those links you find when you’re reading something online. When you pass over it with your cursor, you can actually click on it and be transported through time and space to visit another website.

I’ve been toying with it unsuccessfully in order to get a link from my MySpace page to my blog. Sure, I could just repost my entries onto my MySpace, but that would make for a few minutes of extra work. In my land of milk and honey, there will be none of that.

Well, I finally achieved the proper link and it ended up the way that I wanted it. In my mind, I have achieved maximum hard-on and there’s no where to go but over the top. Yes, the pun is intended.

I’m starting to think that I may even be getting the hang of this HTML crap. Holy Drew Barrymore! I might even try to learn how to read music again! And believe me folks, that krunk really threw me for a loop.

I just finished season 2 of Rescue Me. It’s a Denis Leary vehicle about New York City fireman in a post-9/11 town. I missed it the first time around, but I’ve been gaining ground since I’ve subscribed to Netflix.

The show is absolutely DAMNTASTIC!!! Sure, it’s mainly Leary’s standup routines mixed in with the drama… But it’s a damn good drama.

Here’s the rub…

I missed season 3 and I’m waiting for it to come out on DVD in June. I want to get all caught up before seeing season 4. But those jokers at FX Networks don’t want me to be caught up. They’re releasing season 3 the same damn time they’re showing the new episodes on FX.


Why do these networks do that sort of thing? It drives me crazier than Tommy Gavin passing a liquor store on free sample day. Jesus Chrysler Dodge!

But there’s nothing I can do except tape those new episodes while getting up to speed. Then when I’m done… Start watching season 4 off my tapes.

Yes… It sounds like a good plan, but I know that it will get screwed like a baby-faced fresh fish in prison.

I’m going to try to keep a positive attitude about it. I will accomplish the task laid out before me in June. It will be a greater feeling than figuring out how to slay my HTML dragon.

I have even kissed girls. I have even lit propane heaters and survived. I can do anything.

    FX is currently showing Season 2 late at night, either Saturday or Sunday. I'm sure it will go straight into Season 3 as a lead-in to the new season. Check your local listings.

  2. Thanks Brad!

    I've checked the website and it is indeed late night Saturdays/early Sunday morning. I will keep a lookout and get up to speed.
