I would like to encourage further massive focused action on the 6 degrees of Casey Serin to Bettie Page front
However, there are a couple of amusing non-Casey blog entries worth mentioning.
Il Rito Dimenticato - deep sea insanity and illogic over at Groovy Age
and one of the last groovy Table of Malcontents entries. (If I could find the secret Yubiwaza system, I'd gladly FedEx it to G.)

It’s Friday and time for another 6 Degrees of Casey Serin™ game!
This week’s challenge is Casey to Bettie Page.
The clock is ticking so you better start hopping!
While we’re on the topic of games there has been some chat about writing a Casey Serin game over at Stephanie J’s place so she has reserved a SimCasey™ post for suggestions. And don’t forget to check out Saint Casius Serinicus while you’re there!
OT UPDATE: Sprezzie has honored me with the quote of the evening (thanks and I'm glad it was that one:)!). I want to keep 6 Degrees of Casey Serin to Bettie Page in the forefront of our massive focused action in this neck of the interwoods, but would be curious what others have to say about a spontaneous emergence of an unplanned online community.

Honest answers only please.
OT UPDATE: I found this amusing Future of Real Estate image over at Paleo-Future and had to share it.

BTW, where's my biggest fan who I secretly lust after to take his prize (I promise it won't involve butt plugs)?
UPDATE: this Groovy Age post somehow reminds me of the Caseyopod creature.
When I reached for my breakfast cereal box, all I found was a black eye. I think I might have a brain tumor and should live in an Igloo.
Now that the migraine medication has finally taken some effect after yesterday’s noxious neuron killing gas experience, I’m in need of some distraction so I shall follow up on the latest news in 6 Degrees of Casey Serin.
Murst, it appears that Stephanie J. and Ogg are this week’s 6 Degrees of Casey Serin and Tony the Tiger winners. SWEET! Win-win!
Second, despite all of my efforts, I am anything but Murst! On a “6 Degrees of Casey Serin” Google search. Flailing Forward (still enjoyed koincidental, though) stole my glory so I shall include these mighty mouse links to remedy the situation.
Also, for those proclaiming undying lust for me, please prove it by sending me one of these films (not to mention the latest Paul Auster novel) ;). While I thought I had seen everything, this guy proves there are some intriguing vintage films I haven’t.

“So once I started having thoughts like this, everything began looking different to me. To my eyes, this system I was observing, this ‘trial’ thing itself, began to take on the appearance of some special, weird creature.”
“Like, say, an octopus. A giant octopus living way down deep at the bottom of the ocean. It has this tremendously powerful life force, a bunch of long, undulating legs, and it's heading somewhere, moving through the darkness of the ocean. I'm sitting here listening to these trials, and all I can see in my head is this creature. It takes on all kinds of different shapes--sometimes it's "the nation," and sometimes it's "the law," and sometimes it takes on shapes that are more difficult and dangerous than that . . . and this creature, this thing doesn't give a damn that I'm me or you're you. In its presence, all human beings lose their names and their faces. We all turn into signs, into numbers.”
BTW, if you haven’t submitted your 6 Degrees of Casey Serin™ to Tony the Tiger entry, the voting will soon begin, so hurry up!

But the study found that when people invested more in intrinsic values, like relationships and quality of life, and less in consumption, it seemed to increase their happiness. And, the study suggested, there may be a financial gain to doing so.
Also, F-you KC for not posting my comments. I've been one of your most tolerant Haterz/critics, but I'm really beginning to lose my patience with your BS (AKA how you've treated your wife).

Froot Loops’ days on Saturday morning television may be numbered...
Kellogg also announced that it would stop using licensed characters or branded toys to promote foods unless the products meet the nutrition guidelines.
The voluntary changes, which will be put in place over the next year and a half, will apply to about half of the products that Kellogg currently markets to children worldwide, including Froot Loops and Apple Jacks cereals and Pop-Tarts...

As previously mentioned in the comments, the air conditioner at the office is broken and it is currently over 85 degrees F with no ventilation whatsoever. Since I'm too grumpy and hot to accomplish any work, I thought I'd complain about the situation in my own official blogosphere.
When I Googled my office temperature concerns I came across this:
In general, what temperature is 'right' for various activities?
|78||25||Optimal for bathing, showering. Sleep is disturbed|
|75||24||People feel warm, lethargic and sleepy. Optimal for unclothed people.|
|72||22||Most comfortable year-round indoor temperature for sedentary people.|
|70||21||Optimum for performance of mental work.|
|64||18||Physically inactive people begin to shiver. Active people are comfortable.|
Given the fact that I am clothed and presumably perform "mental work", 85 degrees is simply unacceptable. Can someone please explain why office air conditioners never work when they are needed, but are always on when they’re not? If we can't even manage office climate control, how the hell are we going to deal with global warming?
Speaking of climate control, I would like to return to Paleo-Future's "home of the future" where "electrically operated climate-conditioned extensions will permit 'summer terraces' all at will by your electricity." I just love the image.
In other Casey Serin news, NotAnOptimist has provided an excellent transcript of Declan McCullagh's Interview with Casey and Marty Stewart.

A Berkeley watchdog organization that tracks military spending said it uncovered a strange U.S. military proposal to create a hormone bomb that could purportedly turn enemy soldiers into homosexuals and make them more interested in sex than fighting.
Given the Casey heads to Australia excitement we'll keep the polls open and organic longer than usual.
Given the latest developments Duane LeGate reports at EN, I wonder whether Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day was Casey's favorite childhood book...

Table of Malcontents is pretty groovy. They find sweet stuff like this.
