Flip Floppery

Even with the recent MySpace outages due to the heat and power demands of the West Coast, I'm going to pretty much throw them all my traffic... What does that mean to the Payne Place Daily (The Sequel) readers??

Well, all 4 or 5 of you can click on my MySpace page

I don't like their blogging system that much, but I do like the way you can send out new post notifications, get feedback and comments easier, plus I really like the way you can (usually) find the music you are currently listening to and post that as well.

More to come... Thanks for your support

Robot Chicken: Dicks With Time Machines

What would happen if an idiot went back in time?

Did I promise techno web-saavy goodness? Yes, I think I did. Actually I'm just figuring out how to use the bazillion tools out there to make your blog cool, but anyway, Enjoy.

Damn You Captain Crunch!!

If you love blasts from the past and current pop culture, you have to check out I-Mockery, and their blog I-Mockery Blabber.

Blue October, Hate Me Today... Man, does this song rock!! A little twisted, but then I've never beat a heroin/being crazy addiction.

The British Isles Rule

I'm not sure how, but my entire CD changer in the car is either British, Scottish, or Irish. And it's all I want to listen to: when I'm contemplative, when I want to get pumped up, when I want rap, when I want to rock out.

Franz Ferdinand (Henry loves Do You Wanna?), Mike Skinner, The Arctic Monkeys, Bloc Party (currently in heavy rotation) Lady Sovereign, Lily Allen, Oasis, Snow Patrol... I'm starting my own British Invasion.

Also check out my Flickr page. I am uploading tons of pictures every day, then organizing them into groups. It's one step in my PaynePlace web domination scheme. I at least want to rule the google search page for payneplace.

PS - 7/13 - I just learned that the Lost Prophets, who I thought were an ATL band, are British...

Ch' Ch' Ch' Ch' Changes... Time to make a change...

I'm going to be making lots of changes to my many diverse and loosely updated webpages over the next few days, weeks, months... I was talking to this really cool woman (cue Wolfmother's "Woman") on Monday night, who gave me some great feedback, and also I need to harness the power of my web-saavyness to do something really cool and comprehensive. Stay tuned...

After the emotional roller coaster of the past few days, I feel really good and positive right now. I have had a great day with the Boyz; they are down for a nap right now. I get a new bed delivered tonight, well just the mattress and boxspring. The bed shopping will commence over the next few days. But at least I won't have to pull a Farrah Fawcett, and I don't have to sleep on the sofa bed ever again.

Should I?? Shouldn't I??

Check out this website I found. This seems like a little much, but I am really curious if I actually have Irish blood from the Payne side or not. Cause I think being Irish descent is way cooler than being English descent. I don't know why. I guess I just like being the underdog. It appears that Payne is an English name, but some websites show Irish origins also. I'm from Dublin, GA, if that has any bearing. I know that since at least my grandfather we've lived there. Maybe he just liked shamrocks, I dunno. Will these mysteries never end?? Am I cursed to love Guinness, Waking Ned Divine, and blue eyed/black haired girls in vain?? Tune in next week to find out.

They're Here

I was walking Magatha last night, and I went past my neighbor's house. The obligatory "How's it going??" exchange started, but he did throw in something interesting. He and his son's spotted not one, but two ARMADILLO'S in ATHENS. Yes, it's true, and they were alive to boot. The armadillo is an interesting creature, but most people, including me, don't know much about them. Check out this story from my least favorite news service to learn more. Lauren just asked me the other day if they were only in Texas because one of her girlfriends said she saw one by the road in rural South Carolina. I knew they were on the move, and know that some people here in GA call them "possum on the halfshell" but that's about it, but I didn't know how far up they were. They are very cool little critters.
