Friday moon rising


This crane is outside the old Courthouse Building in Columbus, while across the street a new one is being finished. Friday evening the moon was coming up, and the crane made a nice object for the camera to focus on.

That moon looks like a big floating stone head....

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

It seems kind of orby. I wonder how it would look with a stache?

J— said...

I thought the crane was for capturing the moon. That's what I would do if I had a crane.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

if I had a crane pun, I'd swing it by Sadly, No.

Another Kiwi said...

I had to crane my neck to see that

Big Bad Bald Bastard said...

That's no moon.

Smut Clyde said...

That moon looks like a big floating stone head....

These ominous allusions to the possibility of a Zardozing remind me of that passage in Lord of Light where characters are discussing the threat from Shiva's nuclear-armed "thunder chariot" -- "the 'man in the hat' may 'nod his head' over [endangered blog]." Or something like that.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Something like that, Smut my man.

Something like that.

Jennifer said...

I also saw a glorious moon on Friday, but the only cranes I saw were the two-footed variety. Unfortunately, I had no camera.

Did someone say Zardoz??

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

note the avatar.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

THUNDRADOME!!

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

eww. Can't we just get beyond Thundradome?

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Disaster or Opportunity?

Jennifer said...

I noted the avatar and attempted to change mine... however Blogger, being curmudgeonly, will not let me post a photo. Tainted URL or something! I'll show them tainted!

Jennifer said...

FYI, ZRM... the bomber had a reason for the bomber... but it was not the gut bomb I expected.

Jennifer said...

I can't remember, can thundra see his own blog if he's at his place of work? It's only TypePad and 3B's that he can't see, correct?

Jennifer said...

Or, will he come home only to find his little corner of the blogosphere has red wine spilled all over it.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

tequila.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

blooger has hosed my avatar too..

FASCISM!!!

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

jennifer broke blooger's avatars?

Jennifer said...

No, fish stole it.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

...aaah. The yelling at fish worked, my avatar is back.

Make a note: when the internet is broked, YELL AT FISH.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

the strings of big stone head avatars is attractive and soothing, like a bad science fiction bead necklace.

Jennifer said...

I'm still avatarless... no amount of yelling at fish has helped.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

well, hopefully yelling at fish at least made you FEEL better.

Jennifer said...

well, hopefully yelling at fish at least made you FEEL better.

I'd prefer an avatar.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

now mine's gone again.

EFFING FISH.

fish said...

Did someone call my name?

fish said...

Don't mention my name and Avatar. Plover might hear.

fish said...

Thundraglobe.

fish said...

Are we at 1000 yet?

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

SHEESH, FISH. I ALREADY NAMED THIS THUNDRADOME.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

YES, ZARDOZ IS YELLING AT FISH.

PENIS GOOD. FISH BAD.

Jennifer said...

YES, ZARDOZ IS YELLING AT FISH.

PENIS GOOD. FISH BAD.


Isn't that FISH PENIS BAD?

By the way... I was finally able to upload a new avatar... my mouse jumped though so instead of getting the Zardoz... I got a Bad Ronald. Perhaps Bad Ronald is the new Zardoz.

Jennifer said...

When does that Hallogallo start??

Jennifer said...

And... was fish trying to steal ZRM's comment? In broad daylight? Has he no shame?

Jennifer said...

I bet if we posted some cranberry vodka, Kathleen would be here in an instant.

Jennifer said...

And maybe a moose for Snag.

Jennifer said...

Perhaps a Piggy Bomber for Pinko. Although, I'm guessing he'd be very disappointed.

Jennifer said...

I'm on my 3rd cup of afternoon coffee... trying to make up for the long weekend, and for over-sleeping this morning. It's not helping.

Jennifer said...

Hey thundrapants! It's supposed to be in the 70's this week! Woo-hoo!

You'll probably get more snow. It's how Ohio rolls.

Jennifer said...

Where in the hell did ZRM go??

Jennifer said...

Von?? Where's Von? She's not spam over here.

You know, the Piggy Bomber should have had at least a little Spam, but noooooo.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

ZRM is off messing with photoshoop, rather than getting ready for a meeting AS HE SHOULD BE.

I blame fish.

Jennifer said...

I still can't save the image you sent... can you save it and send it as an attachment? If not, blame fish.

Smut Clyde said...

I would comment but I'm too busy searching Youtube for topless-nun scenes from The Devils.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Von probly has one a them "jobs"

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Imma not gonna comment on Smut's not-comment.

Jennifer said...

Was your Von job comment in response to Smut's topless nuns comment???

Smut Clyde said...

I'd prefer an avatar.
How about a harbinger? Would that do?

Jennifer said...

How about a harbinger? Would that do?

I'm not sure I'd like to know of anything to come if left in Smut's hands.

Another Kiwi said...

So this is where the action is.
Are those the new Porky bomber Cheetos?
Snackerlicious!
Ooow fuck they fell down into Thundra's wall heater.

Jennifer said...

Porky Bomber Cheetos... there could be a market for those.

Jennifer said...

I'm thinking it would be a pork rind fused to a Cheeto... a bbq-flavored pork rind.

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

Sounds like it would go great with cranberry vodka, Jennifer.

Or perhaps, grate.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

If Snag steals the bacon-cheetos idea, he owes you royalties, Jennifer

Jennifer said...

If Snag steals the bacon-cheetos idea, he owes you royalties, Jennifer

Oh, I know!!! I have to say, although not the fan of the pork rind, I am curious what the Cheeto/bbq pork rind combo would be like.

Jennifer said...

Eeeww!!

Jennifer said...

Ahem...

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

Added pic for J—.

Smut Clyde said...

Do you need a new avatar during a Zardoz? I was not aware of that rule.

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

Shirley you mean "Justice Cocklecarrot and the Case of the 12 Red-Beared Dwarfs".

Shirley, indeed.
~

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

very cruel, Smut.

Surely you have noticed that some are avatar challenged?

Smut Clyde said...

12 Red-Beared Dwarfs".
J--'s commenting software stole a 'd'.

It is important to know that one of the dwarfs used the name 'Rincewind'..

Smut Clyde said...

More red-beared-dwarf-related information here.

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

Rufo-nanitis is not an acceptable excuse, S.C.

fish said...

SHEESH, FISH. I ALREADY NAMED THIS THUNDRADOME.

Yeah, except that isn't what I said. I still stole it though.

J— said...

Hey, you caught it!

Thanks for the picture.

Von said...

Late. Again, as always.
So, what did I miss?

Von said...

Sorry, I had a meeting last night. I didn't even turn on my computer

Von said...

see, that's what happens when you are big and important, like I am.

Von said...

Hahahahahah.

J— said...

Now, thunder, you can take the moon and rent it out and make lots and lots of money!

Von said...

Cranberry vodka sounds good for breakfast.

Von said...

Here I am! Here I am!1
Sorry I missed yesterday's frivolity.
Can we still play today?
Or am I just hanging out here....all by myself.
"allllll BBBYYYYY MMMMYYYSEELLLLFF"
I'm singing Celine Dion over here.
C'mon, people. Come on back.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

This is a LONG,SLOW Zardoz.

Keep going Von. No rules.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Hopefully someone will bring sangritches.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Cranberry vodka sounds good for breakfast.

And hey! Cranberries, so it's healthy!

Von said...

long and slow.....
oh, sorry.
Mind in gutter.
Sandgriches.
Yes, we'll need sandgritches.
Jimmy jOhns!!!

Von said...

I am having a really shitty day at work.
Running over here to zardoz is keeping me sane.
well, as sane as I can be.

Von said...

It's all relative, anyway

Von said...

Craving
Cranberry
Vodka

Von said...

how's this full moon treating the rest of you?

Von said...

me? no, not so good at all actually.

Von said...

currently listening to
In a white room
with black curtains

Von said...

the zombies on my desk are dancing

Von said...

they are gogo dancing zombies.

Von said...

keeping it funky.

Von said...

sooo....
Where's MenD?

fish said...

CCV

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

There's a Bad Moon Rising....

One of TWO CCR songs I can tolerate. What's the other one, you say?

IT'S NOT LODI.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

C'mon Von, take 100!

fish said...

No way.

fish said...

I'm

fish said...

Gonna

fish said...

take

Jennifer said...

100!

Jennifer said...

This is a LONG,SLOW Zardoz.

That just sounds gross...

Jennifer said...

ZRM- what's wrong with CCR? Not enough Geddy?

Jennifer said...

Von- you just howl right back at the moon.

It's a marvelous night for a moondance!

Jennifer said...

And vodka...

Jennifer said...

But not a long, slow Zardoz...

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

it is hilarious that I was waiting for Miss Yvonne to take #100, and fish even held off, and JENNIFER waltzed right in and stommped all over Von's day!

RM- what's wrong with CCR?

Nothing's WRONG with them. I just don't like 'em, for the most part. I find them flat and uninspired.

Jennifer said...

and JENNIFER waltzed right in and stommped all over Von's day!

And, I believe Jennifer was the only one who commented on Von's very raw and very real post the other day... I'm guessing she'll forgive me for taking 100. Besides, I didn't look at the time stamp so assumed that fish had already stolen it.

Nothing is sacred when it comes to nabbing the century marks, dammit!!@!1@

Von said...

Daaaaammmmnn
Jennifer for the win.

Von said...

I'm a little perplexed tho

Von said...

Z - calling me out with a full name shout out?
I'm speechless.

Von said...

I just don't expect an 'Yvonne' out of any of you.
you all get the right to Von.
forevertimez.

Von said...

Fish - valiant effort, but Jennifer totally snuck in.

Von said...

I was dealing with super EVIL LB1.
Bitch needs some candy or something.

Von said...

She was all unpleasant and nasty.
without cause I tellyou!
without cause.
I'm just sitting here, minding my own
and blam!!
Super bitch boss.

Von said...

stupid full moon is full

Von said...

p.s. and Jennifer is totally right. She's totally forgiven, for previously stated reason.
that, and she's awesome.

Jennifer said...

Fish - valiant effort, but Jennifer totally snuck in.

Yeah, totally... I was just waiting... taking 45 minutes to pounce!!! :)

Jennifer said...

stupid full moon is full

Well, then I'd say you have permission to be CRAZY!!!

Ow-woooooooo!!!!

Jennifer said...

Z - calling me out with a full name shout out?
I'm speechless.


He's after your cranberry vodka.

Jennifer said...

She was all unpleasant and nasty.

Super bitch boss.


Perhaps she needs a strategically placed flaming bag of poo by her cubicle.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

uh-oh. Zombie is pissing off Crew Zardoz.

Perhaps if I offered sangritches....

zombie rotten mcdonald said...


Perhaps she needs a strategically placed flaming bag of poo by her cubicle.


Von, you should maybe leave a pair of black plastic glasses on her desk. She won't get it, which makes it EVEN FUNNIER!

Kathleen said...

That moon looks like a big floating stone head

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Bad Moon On The Rise....

Jennifer said...

LOL!! I thought you were going to put them on the stone head, but they look better on the bad, bad moon.

Goodnight Bad Moon! Goodnight bad cow jumping over the bad moon! Good night bad light and the bad red balloon!

Von said...

Does anyone have any poo I can borrow?
And yes, sangritches would def appease.

"The pumpkin pie incident"

Von said...

weird

Von said...

my comments are many, but at least they are not one word
*ahem fish ahem*

Von said...

people who walk fast in high heels walk fast

Kathleen said...

I overheard something funny but I forget it now.

Kathleen said...

weird

Von said...

I am not liking XRT today.
I would LOVE to be listening to my iPod and it's new awesome playlist, but that would make LB1 even more irate.
damn it.
damn her.

Von said...

stupid "Black hole sun" on right now.
stupid STP

Von said...

dontcha just love my little updates?
It's like you're right here, having my sucky day with me.....

Kathleen said...

perhaps you should leave a box of raspberry flavored chocolate covered matzo in the office kitchen. that scares me.

Kathleen said...

except two hours earlier!!!

Jennifer said...

And now Brian Ferry.

Jennifer said...

I should be listening through the computer, but am not.

Von- are you streaming XRT? If so, you can fine tune what you're listening to... say should you want only new releases.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

I was gonna do the Bad Stone Head, but Miss Jennifer called me out. I am so predictable. Sigh.

Agreed: MenD is absent. Sad.

Well played, Von, for ahemming Bad Fish.

Altough I pretty much like Black Hole Sun.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Vodka

Jennifer said...

I could use a sangritch. It's definitely lunch time.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

cranberry

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Tequila

Jennifer said...

Kathleen- are you going to try the matzo? It sounds scary.

Jennifer said...

I like the Steve and Eydie cover of Black Hole Sun.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Von, I had a boss once who also hated the iPod when I was working. Well, not the iPod, cuz I am OLD OLD OLD and at the time, it was a walkman tape player. But after a while, I started playing after 3 in the afternoon or so, and he accepted it. Wasn't happy about it, but you know, eff him.

Since then, I've had a boss who is a bigger asshole, but he at least lets me listen to music and mostly likes the same things I do.

Jennifer said...

ZRM- don't you mean the Close n' Play??

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Rum.

And Gram Parsons doing "Sin City". Sweet.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

ZRM- don't you mean the Close n' Play??


Hurtful.

Jennifer said...

Yeah, but it'd be funny to see one at work. :)

fish said...

Raspberry chocolate vodka would be better.

fish said...

6 words.

fish said...

Bite me.

fish said...

2 words.

Kathleen said...

possible scenario: reboot the chocolate skittle franchise with a new Raspberry Chocolate chocolate skittle

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

the Bad Zardoz looks pretty good also

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Yeah, but it'd be funny to see one at work. :)


So, just to be straight; Hurting Zombies is okay, as long as someone gets lulz.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

possible scenario: reboot the chocolate skittle franchise with a new Raspberry Chocolate chocolate skittle

This is a totally evil idea, and I think it is safer when Kathleen is drinking in the afternoon, rather than putting things like this out on the iNtertrons.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Raspberry chocolate vodka would be better.

on the other hand, this seems to be a winner of an idea, and I demand to know where fish stole it.

fish said...

that was a relief wherever you be let your wind go free who knows if that pork chop I took with my cup of tea after was quite good with the heat I couldnt smell anything off it Im sure that queerlooking man in the porkbutchers is a great rogue I hope that lamp is not smoking fill my nose up with smuts better than having him leaving the gas on all night I couldnt rest easy in my bed in Gibraltar even getting up to see why am I so damned nervous about that though I like it in the winter its more company O Lord it was rotten cold too that winter when I was only about ten was I yes I had the big doll with all the funny clothes dressing her up and undressing that icy wind skeeting across from those mountains the something Nevada sierra nevada standing at the fire with the little bit of a short shift I had up to heat myself I loved dancing about in it then make a race back into bed Im sure that fellow opposite used to be there the whole time watching with the lights out in the summer and I in my skin hopping around I used to love myself then stripped at the washstand dabbing and creaming only when it came to the chamber performance I put out the light too so then there were 2 of us goodbye to my sleep for this night anyhow I hope hes not going to get in with those medicals leading him astray to imagine hes young again coming in at 4 in the morning it must be if not more still he had the manners not to wake me what do they find to gabber about all night squandering money and getting drunker and drunker couldnt they drink water then he starts giving us his orders for eggs and tea and Findon haddy and hot buttered toast I suppose well have him sitting up like the king of the country pumping the wrong end of the spoon up and down in his egg wherever he learned that from and I love to hear him falling up the stairs of a morning with the cups rattling on the tray and then play with the cat she rubs up against you for her own sake I wonder has she fleas shes as bad as a woman always licking and lecking but I hate their claws I wonder do they see anything that we cant staring like that when she sits at the top of the stairs so long and listening as I wait always what a robber too that lovely fresh place I bought I think Ill get a bit of fish tomorrow or today is it Friday yes I will with some blancmange with black currant jam like long ago not those 2 lb pots of mixed plum and apple from the London and Newcastle Williams and Woods goes twice as far only for the bones I hate those eels cod yes Ill get a nice piece of cod Im always getting enough for 3 forgetting anyway Im sick of that everlasting butchers meat from Buckleys loin chops and leg beef and rib steak and scrag of mutton and calfs pluck the very name is enough or a picnic suppose we all gave 5/- each and or let him pay it and invite some other woman for him who Mrs Fleming and drove out to the furry glen or the strawberry beds wed have him examining all the horses toenails first like he does with the letters no not with Boylan there yes with some cold veal and ham mixed sandwiches there are little houses down at the bottom of the banks there on purpose but its as hot as blazes he says not a bank holiday anyhow I hate those ruck of Mary Ann coalboxes out for the day Whit Monday is a cursed day too no wonder that bee bit him better the seaside but Id never again in this life get into a boat with him after him at Bray telling the boatman he knew how to row if anyone asked could he ride the steeplechase for the gold cup hed say yes then it came on to get rough the old thing crookeding about and the weight all down my side telling me pull the right reins now pull the left and the tide all swamping in floods in through the bottom and his oar slipping out of the stirrup its a mercy we werent all drowned he can swim of course me no theres no danger whatsoever keep yourself calm in his flannel

I hope Von isn't getting yelled at.

Jennifer said...

The stone head almost looks attractive in that nerdy/intellectual way, with just a hint of badness.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

On the other hand, I hope fish IS.

Jennifer said...

Ulysses, fish?

Jennifer said...

Thank goodness fish is not rebellious.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

getting yelled at, I mean.

fish said...

I demand to know where fish stole it.

From some branes I ate. NOW I AM STEALING YOUR GIG!!!!1!!!

Jennifer said...

We could yell at him.

Smut Clyde said...

Needs more drag-&-drop animated moons.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Also glad that blogger doesn't automatically update old avatars, so one can keep track of image choices.

Jennifer said...

ZRM- you need to put some black glasses on that fish fairy and that unicorn.

fish said...

Thank goodness fish is not rebellious.

That seems a bit uncalled-for, even if it is just feeshy.

fee fie feeshy.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Kate Bush, Kathleen?

I bet Von's out hunting for abandoned dog poo as we type...

Some of my best friends are fairies.

Jennifer said...

Someone needs to get Von over here for 200.

Jennifer said...

Won't thundra be surprised to find we Zardozed all over his blog again.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

I just saw the trailer for Marmaduke.

OMFG. I weep.

Let's just say that the clip ENDED with CGI dogs line dancing to "What I Like About You"....

...and that was the HIGH point.

Jennifer said...

Wow! Maybe they'll do it in IMAX!

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Won't thundra be surprised to find we Zardozed all over his blog again.


yeah, he'll probably spill wine into something electronic.

but where would he have gotten the idea it was over?

zombie rotten mcdonald said...
