Oh, Bruce was a real shutterbug. The only thing he was more devoted to than that camera was his family. Holidays, business trips, at the park with the kids, or just a normal day around the house: my Bruce was always snapping away. It was like being married to a Japanese tourist. I wish I had a nickel for every nickel he spent at the Fotomat - and even then he never managed to get all of this film developed. But now I can scan it with the VuPoint Film & Slide Digital Converter.
With images of up to 5 megapixels, our old memories spring into vivid life thanks to the automatic color balance and exposure. The included Arcsoft Photoimpression 6 software makes it easy to enhance and edit these photos, even for somebody like me who's not too good with the Photoshop. Wherever you are, Bruce, I'm remembering you tonight.
So many good times. So many wonderful memories, so close to my heart. Oooh, here's a roll from Bruce's trip to the 1975 Central States Heating & Cooling Installers Association Convention in Duluth. I've never even seen these pictures. Let's just scan these in, and...hmmm, it must be mislabeled. This is Bruce playing with the kids - no, no, wait, that's a little boy and we don't have any sons. Must be a nephew or something. That was my Bruce, always so good with children. Oh, look, wedding photos! What a nice surpr- wait. Wait a minute. This isn't me.
That's Bruce, but that woman is not me.
Who the hell is she? Who is this woman, Bruce? What are you doing with your arm around her? Why are you opening Christmas presents with these people? Who's the little boy tottering on the brand-new Huffy? I should've known nobody would be making "sales trips" on Christmas. He said it was the best time to sell to his Buddhist clients. What an idiot I must've been! My beloved husband, living a double life all those years! And me, too stupid to know it! But now I know it all! Every bitter detail in living color, now that it's too late to matter! Oh, yes, I know everything now, thanks to the VuPoint Film & Slide Digital Converter! Damn you for destroying my illusions, VuPoint Film & Slide Digital Converter! Damn you for ruining 40 years of beautiful memories! Damn you!

At first, it was a little robot that emptied the trash. From time to time it would get lost and people would laugh and take pity on it. Eventually it got a few extra chips, the ones that had just been lying around doing nothing. The scientists patted it on the head and wished it well.
Before long, it was taking cups that were half full, right out of the hands of people who were using them. The engineers thought it was hysterical, how it was so proactive. They added a few more arms and a backup brain. They began saving money on janitors and all got raises. They got a grant to develop further. A few designers pitched an ultra-modern new look.
Then they laid off the garbagemen and went city-wide. They promised a cleaner place to live, free of garbage. They had parameters and specs that would eliminate the rats and bedbugs. But that first morning, when the beast arose from the undersea laboratory, the city trembled in fear.
Thankfully, though, it all worked as planned and nothing went wrong at all. And that was because they spent a lot of money on programmers and had a bunch of benefits and a fun workplace and also a sufficiently long beta period with experienced testers. And the garbage free city lived happily ever after!
Wear this shirt: when you take Manhattan. As a warning to Berlin.
Don't wear this shirt: while dressed as a giant monster. That's like wearing a Redskins jersey in Dallas. You just don't DO that!
This shirt tells the world: "To everything, turn, turn, turn, there comes a robot, turn, turn, turn, and he can't be stopped until the city's leveled."

Welcome all, this is Wine Appreciation 214, Survey of L'Ecole No. 41. Please check your schedules to make sure you're in the right place. Dr. Byrne's Adorable Furry Critters in American Literature class is across the hall. Everyone supposed to be here? Good.
We don't have a lot of business to take care of today. This yellow sheet that I'm passing out, this is the syllabus. Please take a look at it and make a note of the class supplies listed at the top. You won't need any books for this class, but you will be required to buy one bottle each of the following wines: The 2006 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2006 Columbia Valley Merlot, and the 2006 Columbia Valley Syrah. It's not mandatory, but a lot of students have found it helpful to buy more than one bottle each, of course I leave that to you. I strongly urge you, though, not to buy these materials used from someone who took this class last year.
If you'll take a look, please, we'll go over the first three weeks of the semester. Sessions one and two: The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a blend of several premium vineyards with the kind of funny names you'll find easy to mock back in the frat house (Klipsun, Weinbau, Pepper Bridge and Candy Mountain, to name a few). You'll really enjoy this week, though. Class next Tuesday consists of all of us letting our tongue get a load of what the Columbia Valley's typical long, cool, rainless harvest season does for fruit quality. Dark fruit! Cassis! Leather aromas! Bittersweet chocolate! An earthy, spicy finish!
During the second week, we'll toss back a slug of the 2006 Columbia Valley Merlot. Actually, we won't toss back slugs of it. That's not a very oenophiliac way to drink. Instead, we'll savor a sip of it or something. That's why you're at this school in the first place, right? To get some sophistication? A couple swigs of our Week Two selection might do it. This burly Merly is rich like Oprah, spicy like Melanie Chisholm, and basically one of the nicest things a person can expect to happen anywhere near his lips, unless a person is a good deal more attractive than it appears this year's incoming freshman class is, anyway. Maybe it's just you people's fashion sense, I dunno.
Finally, in the third week, we'll, sample some of the ought-six Columbia Valley Syrah, washing our mouths in a gushing torrent of flavor, wrapped in a briar-fruit core, and following through to a satisfying finish of fine, chalky tannins. This wine would make Kool-Aid Man's older, more sophisticated brother--a giant decanter--say "goodness, yeah." You're going to like it, unless something's wrong with you.
That's all for today--I suggest you use the remaining class time to purchase your supplies. So you know, class will typically last for the duration of the scheduled meeting time. One last note: You'll see I have office hours listed on Mondays, but F.Y.I. I won't be in there today.
Or--rather, I will be in there, but I'm taking a three-pack sampler of L'Ecole with me, and intend to drain them all. So don't come around knocking on my door with your horrible, banal questions today, got it, punks?

Sure, it's fun. It's super fun. Hauling those little ROK balls around, loading up your collection bins, sending them up the automatic motorized conveyor and down nearly four feet of winding chutes... You'd have to be dead inside not to enjoy that.
I'm just saying: Enjoy it while it lasts, kid.
Toys like these, they fill your head with fantasies about what it's going to be like when you grow up and finally don an adult-sized hardhat of your own in real life. Well, disabuse yourself of those daydreams right now, because it isn't going to happen. Construction jobs are drying up like dodo guano, you hear me? Nobody can finance new projects. When they do, it's all pre-fab anyway. And did you see the news about the Peterbilt plant closing? So who's going to build you that big truck?
That's just how it is, son. The toymakers, they fill you with these big dreams, and why? Just so the real world can kill them dead and grind their remains to dust. It's a cruel, cruel thing.
Take your grandpa. He played cowboys and indians growing up. Loved it. LOVED it. But do you think there was a job market for indian fighters when he got out of high school? No, there sure wasn't.
And me, I played with spaceships. Oh, I was sure I was going to be an interplanetary explorer when I grew up. But am I? No, I most certainly am not.
I'm a motivational speaker. Just like your grandpa was. And that's what you're going to be, too, no matter how much you might want to be something else. That's just how it goes. So get used to it.
