LOTR:ROTK - Damn good.

Caught this tonite because I was really annoyed that I hadn't had a chance to see it yet. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it. An excellent capstone to a three year long series.

The fine art of the breakup mix tape.

Breakup tapes come in two varieties:

1. Tapes made with the intention of bringing the other party to their senses, i.e., making them come crawling back to you on their knees begging for forgiveness.

2. Tapes made with the purpose of informing your former love that you are either:

A) pissed off/angry/heartbroken/hopeless/sobbing/in mourning, OR

B) you cannot possibly believe that you spent ANY time with them, let alone the substantial amount of time that you wasted with them, and while you're pissed off and angry, you're actually happy to be rid of them, are having a wonderful time without them, and by the way, fuck you very much and that skanky skeezer you rode off on.

[Fark] Carpet layers wanted!

All Chuck Cole wanted was someone to install a carpet. His newspaper ad brought him so much more. The classified that ran in the Glenwood Springs Post Independent last week inadvertently left out the words "Carpet layer wanted." Instead, the ad read: "3 hour quickie! Extra Christmas $. Cash upon completion. Glenwood. Ready right now!" Cole, who owns an apartment complex in Glenwood Springs but lives in Colorado Springs, had not seen the ad when the calls starting rolling in. And they weren't about carpet.

"One woman said she thought she could "help me out,"" he said. "I started to feel like something goofy was going on so I said, "Are you a carpet layer?" She said, "Well, whatever."" Another woman called and told Cole she could do the job, and that her husband was at work during the day. "I thought that was odd, so I asked her if she had a kicker and an iron - she just hung up," Cole said. The one man who called sounded confused when Cole started talking about carpet.

[Fark] Psst, buddy! Wanna buy a slightly used pay phone?

Due to downward trends in payphone usage, BellSouth plans to discontinue providing services to its payphone location provider customers. Payphone usage declines are the primary drivers of BellSouth's decision to exit the business. Customers are opting for new technology options, such as wireless telephones and personal communications devices.

In partnership with BellSouth Public Communications, the BellSouth Pioneer Volunteers are offering for sale original renovated and completely operational BellSouth payphones and coinbox doors.
