Howdy, I'm (sorta) back online.

This here was the cover to Martin Hanford's zero-seller "Where's CRZ?" It was up a week later than normal since Aaron didn't seem to want to change logos while I was completely offline. While our RoadRunner was up pretty much the day after we moved into this place, getting actual COMPUTERS hooked up to THAT proved to take a while longer.
This one was the first one I saw in Minnesota and thought "hmm, that'd make a good logo."


I'll PROBABLY go back to using suggested logos by next week, unless something really catches my eye between now and then. For now, it's off to read the 1400 new messages in Wrestling - yeah, right. It really got stupid in here while I was gone, didn't it?

I now have a new appreciation of how much you do around here, and how little I usually do.



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

Oh, Guru? Haven't got it in ya yet to be an evil dictator? Well, just keep your feet on the ground, and keep reachin' for the stars...

In all seriousness... hope your move went well, CRZ, and your back didn't give out either from lifting heavy boxes or being cramped in a moving truck.



Enjoy it while it lasts.
The very words I live by.

I hope you hired movers ... I recently moved and that was the best $$$ I could have spent.

I cheaped out and it almost backfired on me, since I ended up with friends of mine who couldn't come until a little later in the move thanks to work/doctor's appt (although to be fair, my one friend's wife is about 4 months pregnant).

But if they didn't come when they did, I'd be writing this post while in traction.

What we're all waiting pensively to hear: Did the records survive?

(Have you noticed that we're all more interested in the move than we are in the W o' the week? If we'd known you were so technologically deprived, we coulda loaned you a laptop!)

Well, to get off(on?)-topic, the W is obviously a trucking company logo. And, since I don't know any trucking companies up there, I'll just guess "West Star". ('Cuz of the star, you see.)

Anyway, congrats on the successful move. Enjoy the weather (although it actually gets warmer up there than it does here in the summer - I love the Great Lakes).

Oh, naturlich...

We were told our stuff weighed 13,000 pounds all told. I'm pretty sure LPs only come out to about a ton (figuring 36 boxes @ 60# each) so I have no idea what weighed so much. Too many books, I guess. Anyway, it's 16 or 17 steps from the street to the house, and then another flight to our second floor, so you bet your butt we hired other people to schlep, and drive, and schlep. We saved our money by going PBO (packed by owner) the whole way and amazingly, it looks like the only casualty was a Pyrex pan of Kim's (which, of course, was good for a sliver in my thumb while cleaning it up).

Of course, I haven't opened a box of records (or CDs) yet and probably won't for a while. I am guessing they survived okay, though, judging by a single box of 45s that DID get unpacked (as they were thrown in with other stuff when I forgot to properly pack them last month).

Also, importantly, the berscanner still works! ...even though I haven't worn a tie since I've been out here. Maybe that'll change soon?

Did you Pod your stuff? I imagine it's more expensive, but it sure seems like a cool way to move.

edit: What's the going rate per pound?

1. Hell no

2. Uhh, I dunno. We paid $(ungodly amount) if that helps.

I'm sure I've seen that "W" before, and I'm pretty sure it was on a truck. I *was* positive it was from "Wilson", but after looking around for their site on the internet, now I'm not so sure.

Thanks for the Waldo one. It used to be my nickname back 10 years ago. It brought back some fond drinking memories.

It's Western Star Trucking, i believe they make trucks that are used as snow plows (most likely a foreign vehicle for many outside the northern half of the U.S.) and dumptrucks.

Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
White-Western Star trucks were the primary brand used for hauling logs when I lived in Alaska. Haven't seen one in years, to the point I didn't even know they'd dropped "White" from the brand.


(Not sure why I bothered with the spoiler tags since it's already spoiled, but what the heck...)

Now that I'm in Minnesota, I'm guessing you'll get some of the ones I pick a lot faster.

I lifted the logo from this page (my.tbaytel.net).
