Have a Great Weekend

Because there’s no better way to celebrate the first Friday of autumn in the Northern Hemisphere than with some Ego Likeness:

Things to Do In Dallas When You’re Dead

Today is the start of the State Fair of Texas, and we all know what that means, right?

Of course, there’s always room for a sequel, where Big Tex is resurrected and turned into a champion of good, fighting the robot dinosaurs in Glen Rose. Now all we need is the ending, with Big Tex flying off into the sunset after setting the issue by crying out “Form Blazing Stetson!”, and one little kid screaming “Big Tex, come baaaaaaaaack!” We can even call the movie Third Coast. Have someone at DNA Productions give me a call, and we’ll do lunch.

Have a Great Weekend

A few weeks ago, I idly commented “Every last tourist who goes to London wants to recreate the cover for the Beatles’ album Abbey Road, but nobody but me ever wants to go to a museum and recreate the cover for the Ramones’ Adios Amigos. Well, thanks to a lot of friends coming to Dallas next year for the 2015 Society of Vertebrate Paleontology, this will be rectified. Probably while singing this song.

Have a Great Weekend: The Thomas Holtz Edition

I’d just like to point out that tomorrow is the birthday of both friend and hero Dr. Thomas Holtz. Sadly, his birthday is always eclipsed by the memorial celebrations of that event that happened on his birthday 15 years ago. We’ll never get our moon back, but at least uniform fashions and nuclear waste disposal methods have improved since the end of the Twentieth Century. Until then, never let the travails of the personnel of Moon Base Alpha be forgotten.
