Here, Teddy

From Raw Feed (via Engadget, via Dave Winer), here’s the amazing decapitated teddy bear USB thumb drive!

More pictures here. Kind of looks like somebody made this at home with a carving knife.

WOW i so fancy johny deep!

Sometimes some of the most interesting things happening on my site are happening in the comments of older entries. Like this entry from December of 2003, where I recounted the long and arduous process of rediscovering an 80s song that I could still hum but didn’t know the artist or the title. Well, two and a half years after I wrote the post, I got this comment from the lead singer of the band who did the song, saying the story brought a smile to his face. It turns out he’s gotten out of the music business and now owns a company that duplicates CDs. What are the odds of him ever coming and finding my site, much less commenting on it?

And then there’s the phenomenon that my Charlie and the Chocolate Factory page has become. In December of 2004 I put up screenshots from the new Tim Burton remake of the Willy Wonka story. The trailer had just come out, and I was fascinated by the visuals from the film. And the comments on this entry started out reasonably enough:

While it’s sure to be interesting to see another interpretation of this book, I still say remaking the original is blasphemy.

I’m acutally pleased that they are doing another Wonka film.

But soon things started to skew a little younger…

WOW i so fancy johny deep!

Maybe you’d wanna see it because Johnny depp is in it? He isn’t all hat good looking!! so just lay off! I love you all!!!!!!!!

And then, somewhere along the way, the dam burst and all hell broke loose.

I don’t know when or how it happened, but my site had turned into a MySpace page. The kids had taken over! And the thing is, it’s still continuing. I must have some rockin Google placement or something, because the comments just keep coming. Here’s the newest one, just posted this morning. It’s such a transcendant experience, I had to post it in its entirety.
