Do you ever see something in a store or online or somewhere that you know someone you used to be friends with would love, and then wish that you were still friends with them so you could get it for them and make their day? Uh, yeah, I mean, I don't either.

Speaking of buying things, I'm open to receiving this or this, because as you know, I like Superman and The Simpsons.

I'd like to thank Adam for getting me into Saves the Day so long ago. My two favorite songs by them are "Freakish" and "Sell My Old Clothes, I'm Off to Heaven".

I hope you don't mind me telling you this, but I freakin' hate the business end of the music industry. They screw us over on CD prices for years and years (though that's slowly getting better), they chew up and spit out talented musicians while constantly trying to force feed us crap, they try to screw us out of getting music for free (which we keep finding ways around, go us!), and now this.

A fine, fine, fine random quote to think about: "Most kindergarteners would do anything to be a robot."

And while I'm giving you things to think about, did you know the dictionary says that a hippopotamus is also known as a "river horse"?

Apparently a guy named Karl Wang draws a webcomic that features two different versions of me! There's the more current version of me on the left, and the younger, backwards hat wearing, goatee having version of me from a few years ago on the right. See for yourself...

Am I right? See he even acts like me! And look at him dressing like me.. though for completely different reasons. Look, he's even got sleeping problems like I do! And he's seems to be similar to me in other ways! I don't know if I should be excited or very, very frightened...

I knew as soon as I put the new front page picture up, that some people would like it, and some would dislike it. Actually, I don't think "like" and "dislike" are strong enough words to describe the scale of the polarity of feelings on that particular picture. And it's up to you whether or not you believe me about this part, but I also knew exactly who would and who would not like it. If you haven't voiced your opinion on it to me yet, please feel free to e-me about it. Or don't. Totally your call.

If you don't think that this is how every store and retail chain and business thinks of you, then you are exactly who every stupid commercial is talking to. Either way, it's still funny.

I am Stupendous Man!
You are simply amazing, whether you are battling your arch-nemesis Mom Lady, the nefarious Babysitter Girl, or the fiendish Annoying Girl. And you have absolutely nothing to do with mild-mannered Calvin.

Which Calvin are YOU?

I'd like to thank Steve for finding the above quiz. I don't think I talk about Calvin and Hobbes or how much I love them on here nearly enough. In case you're interested, I think Calvin and Hobbes was (is) the greatest comic strip ever.

This is pretty funny.

Update: PlanetGamecube gave that WMXIX a pretty glowing review from the early version of it they got to play.

Sometimes you just have to call them like you see them, and I believe this is one of those times, and I believe that Mr. Kurtz has done a spectacular job of calling it like it is. Or how it is going to be anyway.

If your name is Tara and you don't hear from me by tomorrow afternoon, then you should come by "the work" and talk to me if possible.

I drew He-Man...

As most of you know, I'm a pretty big wrestling fan, and on that level the only thing I like a much as wrestling is a good wrestling game. So far there aren't any good ones out on the next generation systems (though Def Jam Vendetta may change that), but the first pics and info on the next Gamecube WWE game, Wrestlemania XIX, have just been let loose. It looks pretty sharp, but that says very little about the quality of gameplay. Oh well, even if it sucks I'll always have No Mercy.

Peter Jackson (director of The Lord of the Rings) will be directing a remake of King Kong! This sounds pretty exciting if you ask me.

Edward's site is up and running and if you're at all interested in music, you'd be wise to go to it.

Also, if you're even vaguely interested in the world of professional wrestling I have to strongly suggest that you watch WWE Raw on TNN tonight at 9/8c. This is a hint...

Apart from breaking the 9,000 hit mark, March is very close to breaking the most hits in a single month record that was set last month. So if you'd like to tell someone you know that doesn't check out the site on a regular basis to come check it out, then please, please feel free to do so as today is the last day of the month.

Update: I think my phone is working again.

If you've tried to get in touch with me via my cell phone and haven't had any luck, that is because it is not working properly at the moment for some reason. So if you need to get in touch with me please do so via e-mail or my home phone.

I saw that new John Travolta/Samuel L. Jackson flick, Basic, tonight. It didn't suck as I thought it was going to... which was nice. It also has a pretty decent poster.. Sam Jackson has a cape for some reason, and that's fine with me. If you've got two hours to kill there are definitely way lousier movies you could see. I can tell you that much for certain.

I've decided my favorite Marvelous 3 song is "Grant Park". If you have the capabilities to do so, you should download it or try to find their album ReadySexGo! and give it a listen. Then you should let me know what you think of it.

Every so often I say something similar to what I'm about to say, and I imagine I'll continue doing so every so often. Anyway, what I was going to say was this, I feel like there have been some pretty decent updates as of late and I hope all of you are catching them all, and if there's a chance you haven't then please feel free to scroll down and check them out. Then, if you're feeling brave, maybe even wander down to the bottom of the page where the rubot's legs are and check out the "Archives". I know some of you have probably already seen it all, but there are some new people here who might enjoy some of that "old" stuff. I think I'm done now. Thanks so much for your time.
Best wishes always,
Chris Haley

My DVD collection. You can find out what you'd like to borrow.

You're most like the laid back bounty hunter.
You're the cool headed Spike. Not much gets to you...seemingly. You hold some inner pain, but you keep it hidden as best as you can. Inner pain or not, you are incredibly bad-ass.
