Mike tells me that protozoic is 10 years old. We’ve been online at this location for a full decade. We had other internet homes before this one, but this one is the longest running one. I think we first established our internet presence with the original Chook site, which was sometime around 1996 or 1997.
The first post here was made on September 15th, 2004. We posted a lot more then. Hopefully we will continue in the future.
Here are the scans for the screenplay Operation: Red Chicken Disco Jesus along with some photos of the Wreck-Gar folder I found it in, which obviously protected the script from the elements at some point. Without Wreck-Gar, the script would have surely been lost to the annals of time.
Here is another track from Chewkies Two. There is not a video for this one, because the program I do the titling with broke on me. I deleted it and tried to reinstall it only to find that my Mac OS was too out of date. Apple! Thanks to Tim for feedback on the mix.
I found the script for Operation: Red Chicken Disco Jesus the other day while looking for a D&D module. Honestly, I can’t remember if the mime joke made it in. It is probably also worth mentioning that the script was in a Wreck-Gar folder.
The above title is misleading. It is misleading because while I was around during the days of the old dial-up Bulletin Board Systems, I never ran one or really had an interest in computing. I more just lived “through the times” and the era of modems, baud connections and AOL CDs, when in an effort to kill boredom, my friends and I would frequent BBSs. On BBSs we would sometimes play door games, sometimes download a porn picture line by pixel-loading-line, sometimes troll, and sometimes connect with other people in an attempt to feel a little less isolated in our adolescence. BBSs were a way to participate with a world that reached beyond the suburbs.
A Shizz friend of mine has run a Tumblr blog for almost a year now that I participate in: beercanonground.tumblr.com, or just BCOG. It is, as the name suggests, a collection of photos of beer cans atop this here Earth. Here are a couple of my submissions.
I was going up some escalators in the mall this weekend, and there I saw a USPS logo they haven’t used since I was 14.
This was the first time I’ve seen this in a long time. It was the first time I saw it as it was supposed to be.
Meet the USPS EagleMan, the mascot for the US Postal Service who delivers your mail. I never figured out why his collar was so fucked up. I figured it was a 70s disco collar or something. That was obviously his beak, so I just had to do a little mental acrobatics to make the rest of it fit.
