Darlene Love — Christmas (Baby Please Come Home), from the Late Show with David Letterman, 2012.
What’s on your mind?
happy thursday pups!
gawd, i remember from my gaming days… baby jebus shits a thousands dipers.
tomorrow night, darlene love will once again perform this song on letterman — hard to believe she has been doing this gig every year for more than a quarter century…
hey tw3k — how ya doing tonight?
gud :) u? now to listen to ur post.
tis 30 at the moment — gonna have some snow/freezing rain and then rain that washes away the snow tomorrow morning.
We zoomed up to 46 today. Slush city. Who know what it will be like tomorrow morning.
gnash or flash? how do you reconcile? Basically you can bow to Adobe’s IP or not particicpate. Where is Adobe in the Snowden files?
hey ce — slush city – yuck! how ya doing tonight?
More snow == more work for me!
i did not know that (or did i and did i forget?)
Hi folks. So anyone shop at Target from Black Friday onward?
I did. The good news. It appears that debit cards used won’t be compromised because the pin numbers are stored separately.
Now for the strange part. Today I got a robo call saying, They were from Chase and that my “merchant account was locked” and I needed to put in some account info to unlock it. Well being the fast thinking consumer advocate blogger than I am, I turned on my recording device and recorded the call! I put in Zeros for my numbers and then they said that my card was unlocked.
I’m thinking that this is a scam so to be sure I called up Chase. 30 minutes wait time with an announcement that they were aware of what happened with Target. I talked to the woman. I didn’t have a Merchant account but I wanted to confirm nobody from Chase was calling me. They weren’t I got permission to record my conversation with her and what people should do. I’m going to put it up as a audio/Youtube write a story on it and put it up. When people search for this scam they will find my blog and watch/listen to the video.
The video will go ‘viral’ and soon thousands of people will listen and I’ll get… about .02 cents from YouTube.
What a pain in the ass. They say crime doesn’t pay, and neither does consumer advocate reporting :-(
But I do it for the children…
I should be in bed! Last workday in a few hours…and weekend free. I have the whole week off, but will drive east on Christmas Day, Wednesday. We want to spend time at home as well as with my Dad.
dude, I feel your pain. Just can’t verbalize it as well!
hey spocko — fast thinking on your part — be sure to let me know when ya have a link up to the story. i have a friend in novato who shopped there and used her credit card. she is most unhappy
other than that, how was your day?
Oh spocko! Thank you so VERY much for all of this. You are the best.
Ms. Potato Head.
what fun! the best of both worlds so to speak. you have to be back at work before new years?
You hear bout that Chinese dude that whent shopping with his GF?
Yes. We will drive back to Cleveland on Saturday or Sunday (Dec. 28 or 29th). I have to work every day this next week (except for New Year).
funny apropos shit man.
Curse you Suz! I got that cheech and chong shit in ma head..
I will catch up later this weekend. MrCE and I went to the movies to see “American Hustle.” Freaking amazing, we can’t stop talking about it. Disclosure: we are from the state of Delaware, very close to New Jersey. See it!
*rubbing hands together gleefully* your welcome dood
thanks for the recommendation ce
Back to “Flash” W.T.F
My day was fine, went to pick up the SiL at the airport. She is sleeping in the other room now. I’m working on a short funny little video I’m working on for some neighbors. I need to add music and sound effects next. Here is the link that will only be available for a short while.
In other interesting news someone from the Communications workers of America like my TPP video and want to promote it, with a few changes. I said maybe it depended on the changes. they were about the Turning Japanese music and the “Say SAYONARA” phrase. I said fine, but I can add stuff just for them for a price. I told them that I was very careful about commercial vs. personal and fair use vs. getting the commercial rights for things. I wanted to help them but also protect me and them if I did more.
This is usually the point, where I ask for money, where most non-profits go away. But you never know.
Darlene Love will rock forever. Merry Christmas, Suz!
oh i like that new one spocko…. fingers and toes crossed ya get some $$$ for your work from them
merry christmas emerson — was hoping you would show up :) i’m gonna be watching her tomorrow night.. thanks for turning me onto her gig my friend
