Home, home, no more to roam


In celebration of sitting at my own desk, using my own computer, for the first time in many days, I bring you tons of useless links and miscellany. Huzzah!

First off, “What goes bang, thud, bang, thud, bang, thud, bang, thud, bang, thud, bang, thud?” To find out, you’ll have to check out the “Tom tells jokes” section of Tom Baker Says. Someone got the brilliant idea to have Tom Baker read the dictionary and let people make him say stuff via text messages. (via Sarcasmo)

I have my computer. So, I can finally run the iTunes Signature Maker. See if you can guess what any of the songs are in My iTunes Signature

Finally, it’s almost Oscar time. So, I thought I’d give you the list of films that would make my Oscar Do-Overs for 2005, if I ever got past 1957…
