Since it was almost 90°F this afternoon, I decided it was the perfect time to reorganize my boardgames by color. I'm a sweaty gross mess, but it's done.

The Catch 22 / Streetlight Manifesto song, "Dear Sergio" is actually about prolific cartoonist, Sergio Argonés, probably most well-known for his contributions to MAD Magazine.

If we accept that vampires are real *and* we accept that after becoming a vampire, they retain the thoughts and memories and personalities from their human life, *then* we have to accept that there are at least *some* vampires out there with foot fetishes, who *only* bite people on their feet.

Many people think Ska came from Jamaica, but it actually originates in, and derives its name from, Scandinavia, or "Skandinavia" as it appears in many regional dialects.

In a 1999 attempt to cash in on the 3rd wave Ska boom at the time, Paramount Pictures / ViacomCBS produced a test pilot ska-themed Star Trek spin-off called, Ska Trek, starring Liv Tyler as Lieutenant Olivia Hornsby.
Despite a cameo from trombone-playing Jonathan Frakes (reprising his role as William T. Riker), the pilot did not test well with focus groups, and all tapes were subsequently destroyed.

@PostMasterGeneral When this pheromone is present in the air, special scent receptors in the roof of the mouth pickitup pickitup pickitup.

Listening to Ska doesn't make you better looking, but Skanking *does* activate a specific gland in your body that produces a *powerful* pheromone that other people will find irresistible.

The famous black and white "checkerboard" pattern became associated with Ska in the mid-60s when a group of Chess champions from Jamaica played some of their favorite music for the locals while in London for an international chess tournament.
The rest, as they say, is history.

The "Jake" referenced in the name of Gainesville, Florida Ska-Punk band, Less Than Jake, is *not* "Jake from State Farm" as previously claimed on this account.
It is, in fact, Jake "The Snake" Roberts, who was born in Gainesville, Texas!

All of the members of Detroit Ska-Punk band, The Suicide Machines, are members of Mensa. Ryan Vandeberghe has the lowest IQ in the group, at 147. The rest of the band calls him, "The Dumb One."

Before settling on, " The Pietasters," the band first went through a series of other food related names:
The Cakeeaters
The Tartlickers
The Triflesniffers
The Puddinploppers
The Cherrypoppers (after brief discussion with Steve Perry of The Cherry Poppin' Daddies, they let this one go.)
The Moonpiemunchers
and
The Cheesdanishdestroyers

The members of Kill Lincoln are all such huge fans of the Lego interlocking plastic bricks that they're one of the *only* Ska-Punk bands in the world to have a permanent sculpture in Legoland California!
The installation featurs an unprecedented level of articulation, and over 86,000 individual Lego bricks.
"It's rad as hell, to be honest," says Matt "Food" Ellis, who plays saxophone in the band. "We never thought we'd make it *Legoland* big, you know? But here we are."

The Blue Meanies are neither blue, nor mean. Do with that what you will.

I'm not normally a straight up instrumentals guy, but the horns are so fucking good on The Skatelites Hi-Bop Ska, especially the song Ska Reggae Hi-Bop. They're so crisp and clear, and *bright* - the way horns should be!

Mephiskapheles actually *are* all Satan worshippers, and they're all lovely, kind people. Except for Brian. That guy's a dick.
