It's funny
Posted by beaglebot 4 years ago
how many people seem to have gone straight for the journal  
 
how much I feel like this is home that hasn't been around for faro long  
 
how much my attitude has and hasn't changed over the years  
 
how little I care if anyone likes what I post or not but how much I want to post it.  
 
how many of you are still here and back so soon  
 
how long we've been here.

The screen on mr iPod broke so I am currently somewhat mp3-less.  
 
I should be able to get a new whatsit late next month, but until then I htought it would be fun to play a little game.  
 
The game is "Make Beagle listen to stuff"  
 
It's simple, you email me stuff, I listen to it. I write a short review (It sucked is a review)  
 
So, what you waiting for?

Lions and Tigers and Oni, oh my!  
 
Common anime monsters, demons, and ghosts can seem mind-bendingly  
weird, but they all have a basis in traditional Japanese folklore. If  
you have ever wondered why Japanese ghosts look the way they do, why  
those demons all have that face, or what is up with the frog with the  
bowl of water on his head, this is the place to be

Anime is not a genre!

you mentioned your hobby to a friend? Have you thought one of these

I am trying to find a way to reverse tether an android phone via usb. I'm using an HTC mytouch with 2.2.  
 
I need to be able to use the computers internet connection on the phone, not the usual way of using the phones connection on the computer. Wifi is not an option (and the mytouch is bitchy about ad hoc networks as it is.  
 
Anyone runs across something, lemme know.

I need to find the most awesome crane possible for as cheap as possible for demolition boy.  
 
"I did tell him that Daddy had more bills to pay than mommy so not to expect as many gifts from Dad. He said Ok that was fine if daddy would buy a crane and would open the gift from him."  
 
Ideally something that will withstand the pressure of being treated like 1) a hammer 2) a rock 3) a rock being hit by a hammer 4) a four year old with a screwdriver and surprising finger dexterity 5) a four year old with the grip, arm, upper body and leg strength of a 12 year old Olympic hopeful.

Your Cave - Remix
Posted by beaglebot 9 years ago
It's empty in the valley of your heart  
The sun, it rises slowly as you walk  
Towards all the fears  
And all the faults you didn't leave behind  
 
The harvest left no food for you to eat  
You cannibal, you meat-eater, you see  
But I haven't seen the same  
I don't know the shame you feel in defeat  
 
But I will hold on hope  
And I'll let you choke  
On the noose around your neck  
 
And I'll find strength in pain  
And I'll change my ways  
I'll know my name as it's called again  
 
Cause I have other things to fill my time  
You take what is yours and I'll take mine  
Now let me at the truth  
Which won't refresh your broken mind  
 
So tie me to a post and block my ears  
I can see widows and orphans through my tears  
I know my call despite my faults  
And despite my growing fears  
 
But I will hold on hope  
And I'll let you choke  
On the noose around your neck  
 
And I'll find strength in pain  
And I will change my ways  
I'll know my name as it's called again  
 
So come out of your cave walking on your hands  
And see the world hanging upside down  
You can understand dependence  
When you know the maker's hand  
 
So make your siren's call  
And sing all you want  
I will not hear what you have to say  
 
Cause I have freedom now  
And I now know how  
To live my life as it's meant to be  
 
 
But I will hold on hope  
And I'll let you choke  
On the noose around your neck  
 
And I'll find strength in pain  
And I will change my ways  
I'll know my name as it's called again
