From a conversation that [livejournal.com profile] pixie0fd00m and I were having:

Me: "Do you need a certain kind of calculator?"
Her: "Yes for my geometry/..."
Me: "Geometry slash? What? Like an Escher and Euclid sex story?"
Her: "... geometry/algebra 3 class. You're horrible!" {laughs}

Later...

Me: "I wonder what meta slash fiction would be like?"
{pause}
Her: "I don't know if it's scarier that I think that's funny or that I'm trying to figure it out."
-----
So today, I think I've figured it out...

A story composed of an e-mail exchange between Shatner and Nimoy. Through innuendo and a clash of wills (perhaps about who is more successful (who comes out on top??)) you follow the storyline of a typical physical conflict turning into a D/s sex romp.

Substitute Daniel Radcliffe/Tom Felton where "appropriate".

Yes, I'm posting something I got in my e-mail. But mostly because everyone I have on my friend's list would be amused one way or another.

TO THE SPOILED UNDER-30 CROWD!!!

When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were when they were growing up; what with walking twenty-five miles to school every morning ... uphill BOTH ways -- yadda, yadda, yadda

And I remember promising myself that when I grew up, there was no way I was going to lay a bunch of crap like that on kids about how hard I had it and how easy they've got it! But now that I'm over the ripe old age of 30, I can't help but look around and notice the youth of today. You've got it so easy! I mean, compared to my childhood, you live in a dang Utopia! And I hate to say it but you kids today you don't know how good you've got it!

I mean, when I was a kid we didn't have the Internet. If we wanted to know something, we had to go to the dang library and look it up ourselves, in the card catalog!

There was no email! We had to actually write somebody a letter ... with a pen! Then you had to walk all the way across the street and put it in the mailbox and it would take like a week to get there!

There were no MP3's or Napsters! You wanted to steal music, you had to go to the record store and shoplift it yourself! Or you had to wait around all day to tape it off the radio and the DJ'd usually talk over the beginning and @#*% it all up!

We didn't have fancy crap like Call Waiting! If you were on the phone and somebody else called they got a busy signal, that's it! And we didn't have fancy Caller ID Boxes either! When the phone rang, you had no idea who it was! It could be your school, your mom, your boss, a collections agent, you just didn't know! You had to pick it up and take your chances, mister!

We didn't have any fancy Sony Playstation video games with high-resolution 3-D graphics! We had the Atari 2600! With games like "Space Invaders" and "Asteroids" and the graphics sucked! Your guy was a little square! You actually had to use your imagination! And there were no multiple levels or screens, it was just one screen forever! And you could never win. The game just kept getting harder and harder and faster and faster until you died! Just like LIFE!

When you went to the movie theater there no such thing as stadium seating! If a tall guy or some old broad with a hat sat in front of you and you couldn't see, you were just screwed!

Sure, we had cable television, but back then that was only like 15 channels and there was no onscreen menu and no remote control! You had to use a little book called a TV Guide to find out what was on! You were screwed when it came to channel surfing! You had to get off your butt and walk over to the TV to change the channel and there was no Cartoon Network either! You could only get cartoons on Saturday Morning. Do you hear what I'm saying!?! We had to wait ALL WEEK for cartoons!

And we didn't have microwaves, if we wanted to heat something up we had to use the stove or go build a frigging fire imagine that! If we wanted popcorn, we had to use that stupid Jiffy Pop thing and shake it over the stove forever like an idiot.

That's exactly what I'm talking about! You kids today have got it too easy. You're spoiled. You guys wouldn't have lasted five minutes back in 1980!

Regards, The Over 30 Crowd

It has come to my attention that I haven't directed some of my friends to some great WoW videos. These three are done by "Spiff" to various Jonathan Coulton songs.

re: Your Brains
Just As Long As Me
Creepy Doll

Rumor has it that both he and I are working on videos to Skullcrusher Mountain.

There are also videos for I'm Too Sexy and Hardware Store.

I occurred to me today that I hadn't actually posted about Jonathan Coulton. Last year sometime, I followed a link someone had made to a great version of "Baby Got Back". And since I had just joined Yahoo Music Unlimited (which lets you listen to tens of thousands of songs on demand), I looked him up there. I found his EP Where Tradition Meets Tomorrow. If you are in the least geek-inclined and have a sense of humor, you owe it to yourself to listen to these five songs.

1. The Future Soon - "But I know that I'll forget the look of pity in her face / When I'm living in my solar dome on a platform in space"

2. Skullcrusher Mountain - Evil Genius meets Girl, Evil Genius woos girl

3. I Crush Everything - A lovely ballad expressing the lament of a giant squid

4. Betty and Me - Another one of those "let's make a baby out of DNA" country songs

5. Mandlebrot Set - Rockin' ode to the fractal mathematician

There are plenty of other songs you can buy and download directly from his site. He does plan to make money doing this, so try to support him, but:
All songs are in mp3 format with no DRM, which means that you can play them wherever you want. They are also all Creative Commons (except the covers and the mashups), so you should pass them along to friends, burn them onto mix CDs and re-use them in whatever non-commercial endeavor you like. There are still plenty of freebies here, as indicated by the smiley faces, and of course the Thing a Week series is free if you subscribe to it as a podcast. But it is my goal to make a living by making music, so if you get free music and enjoy it, I would certainly appreciate a donation.

Although I like some more than others, I haven't found one yet that I didn't like (even the serious ones). Check him out.
