New Haircut

New Haircut, originally uploaded by bananasontoast on flickr.com.

I went to my hair dresser today and did the normal routine. We joked around for a while about how I am always making her open late because I work long hours, we joked about how I was finally sober when she was seeing me and I sat in the chair ready for my usual haircut.

Now, I normally say, “clippers up the side, a bit of length on the top, but not too much so I can spike it a little.”

Today I said, “okay Lisa, give me what you got! My hair is yours, do what you will!”

Now, the look in her eye should have told me to be careful. Or maybe it was the way she used the clippers and scissors. One way or anything, I ended up with possibly the worlds craziest haircut and I honestly love it! She zigged, she zagged and she carved out a masterpiece.

It’s time… Time for a redesign!

28/09/2005

It’s that time of year again when bananas on toast has a birthday and gets a face lift. To commemorate the 3 year anniversary of the bananasontoast.org domain name and just over 3 years of the weblog the entire site is getting a rather drastic redesign. The site will be down for approximately 48 hours in which MMdC, bananas on toast and all the subsites will be revamped, so it’s a good time to clean out any old bookmarks you may have lying about.

The upgrades are beginning now in the background, but won’t be viewable to the public until around the 12th of October, the sites official birthday. I’ll be working on themes, full redesigns, graphic work, hiring and collabing with other artists and designers and generally working my ass off to make the entire site a seamless piece of perfection.

What do I need from you? Two things:
1. I need to know which layout you think suits the site more and which layout you like more. The choices are the current layout by Michael Heilemann and Chris J Davis, Kubrick 2, Scott Jarkoff‘s layout, triSexuality and Squible by Theron Parlin. Decided.
2. I need to know what problems you have with the current site? Is it too slow loading, not easy to navigate, not sequential enough? Tell me what I can fix and any ideas you may have to improve the site.

Bear in mind that I plan on working my ass off so if you could take a few moments to drop a well thought out response, it would be much appreciated. The person with the most helpful comment and feedback will win themselves a gift either from their deviantART, Amazon.com, Thinkgeek or other wishlist, so get giving with the feedback!

I’m a GQ playa!, originally uploaded by bananasontoast on flickr.com.

According to Melpo, I am a GQ playa. For those who are lame (like me) and have no idea what this means, check this shit out…

UrbanDictionary.com defins GQ as; “Used to describe a guy who is dressed nicely, very sleek, or very sexy to the ladies. The term comes form the men’s fashion magazine named GQ. Example: Damn nigga, you all GQued up 2nite, huh?

…that’s right peoples, how fine am I?! TOO FINE! Hahahaha.

Another phone down!

26/09/2005

I’m yet again looking for a new phone due to unfortunate, but funny, circumstances. If you have a mobile phone comment on this entry with what kind of phone it is, what you like about it and what you dislike about it? If I am going to buy another mobile, it had better be a good one!

TLAPD Over

21/09/2005

Just a little note to all who doubted the validity of TLAPD, here is a link of value! I hope everyone donned their pegleg and celebrated with some rum! I spent the day running around the house semi-naked yelling at my family, freaking out my dog and calling up friends to shiver their timbers!

Some choice phrases I bellowed out and/or had bellowed at me:

“C’mere and shiver my timbers, ya lilly-skinned land lover or I’ll clean the barnicles off your dinghy!”

“Y’arr, where be me coffee wench? I be sailin’ the seven seas and may perish if I don’t gets me lime juice, but first I must be awake!”

“By Blackbeards sword, if I have to tell you this again I’ll put you in the gally where ye’ll scrub the decks till yer knuckles bleed!”

“Y’arr, thar be the sexiest whench me good eye has spotted in days… She be makin’ me peg leg do dances!”

And the best of all, from a girl I met a while ago who was honestly doing her best, but just couldn’t make it…

“A spot of tea and a bickie?” *long awkward pause* “Fuck, is it Talk Like A Pirate Day or Talk Like A Pommy Day?!”

The site is back to normal and will resume normall broadcasting. Over and out.

“Hoi man, wanna get some dinner?”

“Hoi Ryan, I’m sick of you asking me to burn Dave Chapelle for you!”

“Hoi fuck off, you’ve had yours!”

Talk Like A Pirate!

19/09/2005

It’s been one year since the last time I got to act like a fool and talk like a pirate and I’m hear to do it again. With a Limited Edition Pirate Header™ and a plugin that piratizes (see, I make up words) my site, I’d like to say Happy Talk Like A Pirate Day! I hope everyone remember their rum and their parrot and truly cuts a little crazy on this fine day!
