I Hate Your Blog by MC Frontalot

February 28, 2009

Sent to The Quixotic Jedi by my buddy Fernando.  I Hate Your Blog I hate your blog. It’s incredibly terrible and bad. I hate your blog. You own a dog, and you feed it. You post about it. I get to read it. Plus: five paragraphs on the socks you bought and your thoughts on […]

A Few Small Matters

February 27, 2009

WWRBD:  What Would Ron Burgundy Do? I know what you’re thinking:  Yes, I have a nickname for my penis.  It’s called The Octagon.  But I’ve nicknamed my testes as well:  my left one is James Westfall and my right one is Dr. Kenneth Noisewater.  You ladies play your cards right, you just might get to meet […]

Twitter for Beginners

February 26, 2009

I joined Twitter a couple of days ago (you can follow me at and have been trying to figure it out in the little bit of spare time I have that’s not devoted to work, The Quixotic Jedi, and other stuff.  A few minutes of Google searching yielded some pretty crappy results – I had […]

The Road Not Taken

February 25, 2009

How about a couple of hiking metaphors today? I’m going to semi-steal a bit from my friend Alessandra’s blog  – she posted Robert Frost‘s “The Road Not Taken” a few days ago.  I haven’t read this poem in quite a while (probably since high school), but there’s still something about it that resonates with me.  […]

Saturday Night’s Dream

February 23, 2009

I had a very interesting dream on Saturday night.  I think I’ve managed to tease out at least some of the messages in it, but I fear that others are still obscure to me.  My dreams are generally pretty mundane – I can pretty easily identify where the different pieces come from and how they […]

Network Updates: 2/22/2009

February 22, 2009

I get “network updates” from LinkedIn and the various groups to which I belong thereon, so I’m figuring I may as well do the same thing here at The Quixotic Jedi.  I’ll try to do this semi-regularly – possibly every Sunday. Thanks to all who participated in Rap Appreciation Week, I’d say it was pretty […]

A Nice Thought

February 21, 2009

“To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, […]

R.A.W. Honorable Mention 2-20-2009: Brian

February 20, 2009

Today we have another Honorable Mention for Rap Appreciation Week:  Brian, of multiple comment fame.  If anything, this is really more of a “Best in Show” than anything else.  Brian’s the only one who sent in more than one submission, and I can’t let that go unnoticed. So here’s to you, Brian:  you’re famous again. […]

R.A.W. Winner 2-20-2009: Katie Wallace

February 20, 2009

Today’s “winner” for Rap Appreciation Week is Katie Wallace of Astoria/Queens NY.  If you think Katie’s name sounds familiar, it probably is:  she’s my one and only sister.  Lest questions of objectivity come into the picture at this point, let me be absolutely clear about one thing:  I am all about nepotism here at The Quixotic Jedi.  […]
