Tuesday Internet Stuff + KATZ + More

Yesterday and today are cold! I finally put together the homemade chili I’ve been desiring for weeks and even made a double-batch of Southern-style cornbread. Since I completed the T.B.I.M. post on Sunday and completed reading the two books I was into, I did some blog visiting and general surfing. Below is some of the stuff I found plus an extra helping of KATZ.

Create a Superhero

I found this link, The Hero Factory, on Poetikat’s blog, followed it, and created this hero:

Create a Band & Album

This came from Coffee Messiah:


1 - BAND NAME Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random article” or click

The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band: Cura te ipsum ("Take care of your own self!") is what I found.

2 - ALBUM TITLE Go to "Random quotations"
or click

The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album: I am filled with music came from

I think I should have no other mortal wants, if I could always have plenty of music. It seems to infuse strength into my limbs and ideas into my brain. Life seems to go on without effort, when I am filled with music. ~ George Eliot

3 - COVER ART Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days” or click

Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

Below is the album that I created:

Victor Borge

While messing around on the Internet last night, I encountered this video of  Victor Borge that I had never before seen. I laughed so much that I really must share it:

Extra KATZ

My collection of KATZ (LOL Cats and others) has grown so large that I really must share them more often than just on Monday. So:

  1. I've got you up with our band of crime-fighters, Nick. Yours is great!

    Re: cat photos

    This is why I NEVER leave my waffles unattended in the toaster. For some reason, cats seem to love them!


    Now of course, I have to do that album cover.

  2. I've just done the album cover ... it was great fun!

    I'll post it on my blog in a couple of days and link it back to you if that's okay?

  3. Dang Nick, I stopped by and was sure I left a comment earlier ; (

    I like it and as a fellow "human bean" (roald dahl)once we learn to co-exist as equals, we may get somewhere, but so far, there's still too many who want to keep the upper hand, and everything else they can get their hands on ; )

    Cheers and Thanks 4 playing ; )

  4. I think it might finally be warming up here. I'm glad you're up to cooking. Love the Katz

  5. For a post of few words, this is excellent, Reverend Saint.

  6. You know, I always found Victor Borge so funny when I was a little girl. Seems a strange thing for a child to like, but I did. And he was funny! Thanks for the reminder!

  7. Listen Rocky your album cover is the best .. Also the quote on music stirs me like nothing I've read lately. Boy if I could count the times music has liftd me.. Also chili needed here in Fl at the cool moment. what is that recipe??

  8. I've never figured out how people get their pets to wear little costumes. My Alice would never have allowed such an indignity!

  9. Ooooooooooooooooo!!!This is as entertaining as Mondays!

    Thank you, Saintly Nick!

  10. First: I WANT YOUR CHILI!!!!!

    Secondly, you know that photo of the fireman holding the cat? That's totally real! LOL! I love that photo, in fact I have it in one of my photo albums on Myspace.


  11. Thanks for the "make your own album" info Nick ... just done mine (over on my blog)

    It made me smile and kept me out of mischief for a while!

  12. A fun and wandering post.

    I hope your day is filled with music, Nick!

  13. You have some very powerful messages to convey here, Nick. And I love the kitty pictures. Has Alex seen them?!

    CJ xx

  14. I had fun making the cover and heroes, Nick. The KATZ were cute, too.

  15. I LOVE my superhero. Thanks, Nick! You're the greatest.

  16. Thanks so much for sharing the VBorge video, he is such a class act, one never tires of seeing him! The kitty kat pics are very entertaining as well. Thank you for always putting a smile on my face :)
