|Welcome to the Nov 15-30 1999 archive of Stream - you can click the planet to the left to get back to Jimbo's World if you're lost.|
|This is the part of the site where I don't have to screw about with formatting, or layouts, or anything else. I just bang on the keyboard like a diseased monkey, and *poof* - instant content! Guess what part of the site's most likely to get updated on a regular basis? Right.|

|17:45||Mightier than what...?|
|We have a new addition to the linkbar today - penismightier.com, a new addition to the E/N scene
that I found a link to on Solosier's page. Looks
like they just got started, but they've got some kickin' content and a
sweet layout already - so even though one of their posters admits he works for the
establishment (well, "an" establishment, anyway) I'm gonna give 'em the benefit
of the doubt - at least, as long as the content stays good.
Go visit, or something.

|I got a bit of fax humor that had me dying
laughing today... which is a pretty fucking rare occurrence, given that most "fax
funnies" aren't a whole hell of a lot funnier than AOL "forwarded
funnies"... and those, frankly, tend to sap my will to live. Anyway, I figured
Unfortunately, there is no Lieutenant General Reinwald of the US Army, and there apparently hasn't been one as far back as the Vietnam era. (Not to mention the fact that in the modern military, an officer who got the last word in a public interview that way would have gotten the final word on his own career at the same time.)
But even though it's bullshit, it's still got value as a sort of parable on gun control... and it's also a hell of an entertaining story.
|02:20||A lesson in cross-cultural understanding|
But it almost seems like I got something started a little while back, when I reposted ep-sample for the (dubious) benefit of you folks who didn't catch it before it disappeared from that college server r33t originally linked to. Within a couple of hours after my repost, r33t also reposted it again... and a day or two after that, Stile got in the game with some Japanese vomit porn. Not to be outdone, r33t went and found more Japanese vomit porn... and now you just can't help but wonder where will it all end?
Of course, the other question on all of our minds right now is what the hell is wrong with those little Nipponese bastards? And as for that question, ladies and gentlemen of the audience, I believe I have the answer. After much debate and a consultation with a high-powered team of sociopsychological experts, an inescapable conclusion about the Japanese arose:

|Those of you who were around back in the old
U2ME3 days might remember a goober by the name of JimmyGent5... and as for the rest of
you, never, never, never believe - even for a second - that
anything you find on Hometown AOL belongs to me- even if, like JimmyGent5's little slice of AOL hell,
it claims to be Jimbo's World.
|19:19||You ain't gonna believe this shit|
|I found some serious defamation of character
against my compatriot, Professor
Stoner, today over at http://www.av1611.org/amazing.html:
Umm - I can tell you for a fact that the real Professor Stoner has never said, and will never say, any such fucking thing. Bah - libel, I tell you! Lies, all of it, lies... go check out the evil, evil misinformation at http://www.av1611.org/amazing.html. Tell the heathens that they're right about one thing, judgment will come... and when it does,
it will find them sorely lacking.
Fire and brimstone turn me on... don'tcha just love that sulfury smell?

|My longtime friend Dave mysteriously showed up
tonight. We decided to go to the movies, and wound up seeing Dogma - which, despite
both being a Kevin Smith flick and (supposedly) a pointy stick
jabbed in Catholicism's eye, wound up being regrettably forgettable. However, there
was some entertainment after the movie let out... Dave and I ran
into an old friend (mostly of David's, not of mine) and they were discussing yet another
old acquaintance Dave hadn't seen since he moved out of state to finish up college a few
years back. The conversation went something like this:
Justin: "You should hook up with him sometime when you're in town
Heh. What a suck, eh?

|20:12||Triple Threat Multimedia Update|
|I'm gonna give you your choice of one Theater for the Jaded and two (2!) MP3 of the Week entries tonight.
(Or you can download all three, if you're feeling sporty.) Are we ready?
oranges.mpg - this is speshul. It's Theatre for the Jaded, and there's a standard naked-hoochy-genitalia warning involved - but oh, dear. You'd really think that this chick could have found something better to do in her spare time... anyway, don't worry, this one's not in a class with ep-sample.avi or anything. (Then again, nothing is in a class with ep-sample.avi!)
Twiztid - Die muthafucka die! - This is a tasty treat brought to you indirectly by way of a brother named PinheadX. I gotta be honest with you - even though I like stuff like Insane Clown Posse, I really wasn't expecting too much from this one. I figured it would be over-angsty, nerve-janglingly screaming metal-rap noise. But much like Social Distortion, I was wrong. I listened to this critter for the first time this morning while I was getting ready for work, and I wound up so busy groovin' that I almost didn't make it out the door in time. Chekkitout!
Mos Def - New World Water - Ah, Mos Def. I bought their album, Black On Both Sides (which is actually shiny silver on one side and yellow on the other) late last week, and I just can't quit listening to it... if you like hip-hop, you owe it to yourself to give this one a shot.
|02:12||Theatre for the Jaded|
|Some of you are, regrettably, familiar with
tonight's offering. As for the rest of you - I'm going to say this once, and only
THIS IS NOT THE STANDARD, MILDLY DISGUSTING FARE.
This little ditty is so repulsive, it made me physically nauseous - it required an act of physical willpower to watch the whole thing. This is the most disgusting thing that you will (NOT, if you have any sense at all) ever see in your life. I DON'T recommend you download this thing, and you may very well vomit if you do. (Just ask the c00kie cr00k - projectile vomiting after watching roughly half of this AVI is what earned her the nickname.)
Well, I think I've made myself clear. So without further ado, I give you... ep-sample.avi.
DON'T SAY I DIDN'T WARN YOU.
Project is now sportin' a fly Jimbo-designed guestbook - awww, yeah, baby. Go sign it - Stile's always
fiending for guestbook entries almost as bad as he is for web-cam-chickies - and that's really
saying something because, I gotta tell ya, my boy Stile's got an addiction.
Besides... there's a really unpleasant fate awaiting people who don't sign it. (You'll see what I mean if you'll just go visit the motherfucker, ok?)
|21 November 1999|
|Well, I spent all night haxx0ring the guestbook. In addition to matching the
new look for the main page, it's got automagical smiley parsing now - if you don't know
what the fuck that means, it means that from now on, if you type in =), you're gonna get a
in your guestbook entry. If you feel like using
smileys, it understands all of the following: =)
:) :-) ;) ;-) =D
:D :-D =( :( :-(
The preview function also works much better now, for those of you who use HTML in your entries. The only thing I didn't do to that mofo was add the Karma Points back in... that's still hanging around for a later date. Like, say, next weekend... 'cause dammit, I miss the little bastards.
G'night folks - it's late now; I'm going to bed.
|Sorry Steve, still no new
gnappy shit... maybe tomorrow; right now I'm busy working on the guestbook. In the
meantime, you folks can go check out Hear
Ye... I haven't read too much of it yet, because I need to not
avoid doing work on the guestbook (Perl scripts still make me itch faintly. I'm
getting over it, but for now, it's like that) but his layout looks pretty sweet.
Definitely worth a look-see, if techie stuff doesn't scare you off.
|19 November 1999|
|17:49||New. Improved. Fly.|
|Sorry for the lack of updates... but I was
kinda busy. If you've been stopping by since early this morning, you probably caught
me in the midst of my redesign. (If you caught me on ICQ since early this morning,
you were probably subjected to the midst of my redesign!)
Not only does the page have a whole new look... but for the first time in the history of
Jimbo's World, it is fucking indistinguishable in Nyetscape from Internet Exploiter... at
least, without cheating and hovering over a link. (There just isn't
any way to make Nyetscape perform a hover function, unfortunately. That I know of.)
At any rate, it's done - I may play with the guestbook some more this weekend and round out its Nyetscape-ability, but as for the page itself... welcome to Jimbo's World version 3.0! Hope ya like it - and, of course, comments, criticism, and unmuted adulation are always welcome in the guestbook.
Oh, yeah, speaking of the guestbook - if you want a forum, speak up now. I'm almost convinced people will use it, but I'd still like a little more feedback before I take the plunge.

|22:13||Theatre for the Jaded|
|Eventually, this is going to be a new section
in its own right... but until I get off of my ass and design a new theme for it, I'm just
going to go ahead and post entries for it in here. But what is
Theatre for the Jaded, you ask...? Well, it's not necessarily cinema veritè. But
it's usually cinema nastè, if you get my drift. Click at your own
risk, in other words. (Are you feelin' lucky, punk? Well... are ya?)
And now, without further ado, I present to you Theatre for the Jaded's first clip... and boy, does it ever hurt.
|12:25||This is why they have chaperones|
|BWAHAHAHAHA! This morning, Badassmofo graced us all with the most entertaining
"candid" picture I've seen since the Limbo
Party Girl... the Junior High Dance Hall Pimp. Behold his glory:
THAT KID'S GOT IT GOIN' ON.
Bwahahahaha... Badassmofo has a larger version of the pic, if for some reason you can't quite make out what's happening here. (Jesus, get some glasses, eh?)
You know, a lot of guys would say that kid's a pimp because he's only 13 or so and he's got his hands in some girl's pants in the middle of a crowded Junior High dance. But I think those guys are missing the point... I'd say the kid's a pimp because he's only 13 or so and he's already learned how to pay enough attention to what a woman wants that his lady love doesn't care - or even, probably, remember - that they're in the middle of a crowded Junior High dance.
|01:59||Good ghod, I'm tired|
|Would you believe I just now
got done with work for the night? Jesus.
I know there's no way in hell I'm gonna hit the 'net when I get home, so I'm going to go ahead and provide you with a bit of entertainment before I pack it in and leave the office:
|Look, Ma, a retard followed me home! Can I keep it?|
|The following arrived in my mailbox today, at
All aliases and incredibly profound errors have been preserved, but this guy's real name has been obfuscated in order to allow me to pretend I'm not falling off of my Quasi-Buddhist High Horse. I don't have any fucking clue who "Rick" is, who "The Lone Rider" is, or who "Blackrose S M C" is... but I gotta admit, now that he's gone and dumped his little manifesto in my mailbox, my curiosity is piqued.
I don't know exactly what the prize is yet... but I am here and now offering some sort of nifty Jimbo's World prize to anybody who scours the singles networks, manages to find a genuine ad placed by the enigmatic Blackrose S M C, and sends me a link to the ad.
Go ahead, you little 'net weasels... make me proud.
|16 November 1999|
|Still no karma points, but the Guestbook looks
much better now if you're one of those crack-smokin' Netscape types. Go look. Much purtier, no? If
you're using the Internet Exploiter, like me, you probably won't see a damn thing
different. That's because I don't have to trick IE into doing my bidding,
it just bloody well does what I ask it to... Anyway, sorry I don't have any new
guestbook goodies for you IE users this time around - but hey, you've had them all along,
just like Dorothy. Aren't you speshul?
If I took the time to put a Forum up, would you use it? I think it'd be kinda neat to have a community Forum for all of us to use. And incidentally, I'm talking about something nice, like maybe a UBBS forum - lets you post new topics and threads, register yourself as a user with profiles... you know, the whole nine. Not just a cheapo freeby "forum" hosted someplace else, with banners and all that crap. I'd like to do that, but the thought of putting one up and watching it languish in agony just makes me cringe... so if you would like to see a forum here, let me know and we'll see if Santa doesn't have one in his stocking this year.
