bookofjoeTV coming in September

1

Finally, a concrete start date for the long-anticipated since forever "real soon now" would-be killer feature of boj.

I just hope it doesn't turn around and kill boj.

But I digress.

I happened on Bambuser — "a Sweden-based service that lets people broadcast live video from their cell phones to the Internet" — in Clive Thompson's column in the July 2011 issue of Wired magazine.

2

Upon investigation it appears that Bambuser may be usable by this TechnoDolt™ — though I wouldn't put serious money on it — so upon my acquisition of an iPhone 5 this September, look for broadcasts to begin.

Can't hardly wait.

I'll be a bit sad to finally retire my trusty Nokia 6230, acquired in 2004 and still ticking, but even antediluvian Luddites like moi must eventually get with the new program.

Andrew Chase's latest: T. Rex — A visit from the Timmyverse

22

Wrote its creator:

1

......................

8

In the Timmyverse, the T. rex is a scrap metal shredder and compactor, everything and everyone in the underworld will eventually pass through him.

3

Because of this, the poor T. rex suffers the plight of undertakers everywhere, and is rarely invited to parties and leads a somewhat lonely existence,

2

even though he's witty, well mannered and would never intentionally eat a functioning machine.

6

In our universe, the T. rex is six feet long and about 24 inches at the hip, weighs somewhere around 40 lbs. and took about 300 hours to build.

7

Special thanks goes to Dr. Mark Loewen at the University of Utah for patiently describing in minute detail the many peculiarities of Tyranosaur anatomy

4

and for providing spectacular high-resolution skeletal reconstructions.
