Looking to kill time?

Looking to kill time? this site has plenty of weapons for it. see what it takes to make a paper-mache elvis. learn about matchstick kitties. find out how much shaving cream is in a single container. plus a little culture jamming. it's all right here. (plus the webmaster is a goofy looking bastard.)

There is in fact a million things to do on the site, what are the gems among them jcterminal?

I thought the drive-thru project was classic homepage fodder.

How much stuff is inside? is also an instant classic. Check out the cheerios and aluminum foil photos.

The site owner also dug up Coke's anti-H20 marketing gem.

The site owner looks overly gleeful to me. I have a recurring nightmare in which he shows up at my house and will never leave, his little tricks wearing thin as the weeks roll on, until I am forced to stave in his head with a shovel, and live out the remainder of my years with his demented grin floating above me, Cheshire Cat style, until I am driven quite mad.

Check out "trophy night". Very funny.

*ps - how do you link to a specific page from that site when, as our old Zeppelin friends said, the URL remains the same?*

Finally someone has recognized the insane genius of Robert Cockerham. I've shared a neighborhood with this guy for many years and have been to many of his parties - including one where a giant papier-mache polar bear, fitted with thousands of ketchup packets under its "skin," was hunted by maniacs with bb guns - and of course the pyrotechnic remote control car 4th of july - the list goes on. He is a cultural hero here in Sacramento and I am lucky to be able to count him as a friend. I think there is even a picture of my wife somewhere on that site, although it's grown so much in the last 5 years that it's almost impossible to find anything specific.

If you think he is goofy looking, you should check out his brother Mike. That's a goofy looking human being. He's frequently on display at the checkout counter at the main branch of the Sacramento Library.

I have only one question, where can I buy a package of Mr. Brain's Pork Faggots?

MrBaliHai: see Home Farm Foods. Scroll down to Economy Meals.

A genius who looks like Bill Paxton. Or perhaps Jake Busey.

I would be perfectly willing to shell out $9 to see a buddy cop movie starring Matt Haughey as the "by-the-book" cop and Robert Cockerham as the "rebel" cop.

Bless you, Carol Anne. My pork faggots shall occupy a hallowed spot on my office shelf next to my box of Choco Collons, my bottle of Grass Jelly Drink, and my can of Whoop Ass.

Carole Links Galore" Anne kicks ass again.
And I suggested MiguelCardoso was an android...
But I wonder, will we see her?

Wow, luriete, you actually know The Rob Cockerham???? I am so impressed - the man is brilliant. Don't see his Paperazzi costume photos on the site - but he posted them at his Yahoo Paper Mache club.

I think if we all were to participate in prank sculpture (and etc.) more often the world would be a more interesting place. There should be more Robs out there....

His Minneapolis travelogue made me homesick for mpls. Plus I now have a crush on "Ambur." Do you know her, luriete? Ah, sweet "Ambur"...
