(insert pithy rejoinder here)

Welcome To My Desktop

Anyone who knows me knows that I am an extremely restless individual, and that every now and then I’ve got to switch things up. It could be something as easy as driving a different car for a while, or something as epic as painting my bedroom hot pink.

Since I’ve taken on more hours at work, the switching up has been happening at my desk, or more specifically, my desktop, to the amusement of my many co-workers. So for the amusement of you all, I share with you today a gallery of my ever-changing desktop wallpaper.

Ah…yes. The General Lee. My first love.

Mmm…The Metallicar. My present love.

Next we have two pics that are the perfect marriage of humor and music, Tenacious D. and Dethklok. If you don’t know who they are, I suggest hitting the Google immediately. If you don’t like them, well…we can’t be friends.

Now we have the two greatest bands I’ve ever had the good fortune of hanging out with backstage. Lit and Godsmack. Boys and their tattoos. Dreamy.

Why Lemmy? Because Lemmy is God, that’s why.

Next we have two of the greatest influences of my life: Roller Derby and Charles Bukowski. Bukowski touched me deeply on the inside, and Roller Derby smacked the crap out of me on the outside.

Because I can’t download porn.

Next are two pics of my seldom seen daughter, Babygirl. The one above was taken on Halloween when she was two years-old. Her father wanted her to be a princess, but she wanted to be a “basketball boy.” You see who won. (Yes, that is a regulation sized basketball. She was, and still is, very tiny). The one below was taken in our backyard with my nephew. I plan on writing a story just so I can use that pic as a book cover.

Last but not least, for reasons that I cannot begin to comprehend, my all time favorite desktop wallpaper pic ever!!!!!

Doesn’t this pic just say it all?

    • You’re hi-larious. I was thinking of borrowing the one of the Egg. That’s my favorite of all the ones you took.

      • I noticed that you didn’t deny it. Sure, you can use the Egg – anything from that, or any other picture from my sites, or the ones you took with a scope through my windows – anything.

        • Rainbow pissing unicorns it is!

  2. The last one is from Supernatural, right?

    November 25, 2012 at 2:33 am

    • Oh yeah. So is the Metallicar on top. I have a Metallicar of my own, although it’s been taken off the road to get some work done.

      Yeah, I’m a BIG fan of SPN.

        Was a fan for the first series, then went away from it in favor of a few others like Sanctuary, Being Human, Fringe, etc. But was thinking just recently why did we never go back?

        • That is a very good question. I’ll admit that when they killed off my favorite character early on (John Winchester) I wasn’t sure that I wanted to keep watching but I did and haven’t regretted it.

  3. Well, me and H.E, we looked at each other
    And we each said, “Hell Ye,”
    And we wrote the first thing that came to our heads
    Just so happened to be the best blog post in the world
    but it wasn’t published on Freshly pressed.

    Plus your little bit is adorable.

  4. Is that Mettalicar owned by Mettalica? Because I know those guys. I went to high school with them… just sayin’…
    I love Dethklok. Funniest show ever… the one where they tried to give themselves oral sex was the best show ever written.
    Love the kid pics too.

    November 25, 2012 at 1:36 pm

    • Metallica? That’s awesome. They’re my second favorite band ever, behind Godsmack. Sorry, I’m a New Englander and we’re loyal.

      YOU KNOW DETHKLOK??? Wicked! Now I can say the following phrase without worry of intervention:

      I do cocaine…

      • The clown… I forgot his name, but he creeps me out. When he starts hanging around with the drummer… oh man.

        November 25, 2012 at 10:06 pm

        • That would be Dr. Rockso, the Rock-N-Roll Clown.

          November 27, 2012 at 8:17 pm

          • Oh yeah. That dude was creepy. I loved the voice. The story of his downfall was funny. Sort of.

    The Supernatural car is called Metallicar? I didn’t know that . . . so cool. I’d rename my Mustang that, but “Big Bastard Beast Car” has grown on me.

    Ackles!

    November 25, 2012 at 2:14 pm

    • “Big Bastard Beast Car” is all kinds of awesome.

      And Jensen needs to officially change his name to Jensen “Guh” Ackles. I’ve never been one to go for the pretty guys but…MOTHERF*CKING GUH…..

      November 25, 2012 at 9:17 pm

      • kat

        Ha! Totally second that. And he’s from Texas, so extra points there, in my book.

        November 25, 2012 at 9:53 pm

        • Oh God yes! All the hottest guys are from Texas.

  6. Are you sure the coworkers are watching your desktop because they are amused by the ever-changing display, or because they’re looking for signs of when you snap and they want to be there to enjoy it?

    Nice set of pics!

    November 25, 2012 at 3:03 pm

    • Thanks! So far it’s all good. My boss did veto one, and that was the infamous Johnny Cash middle-finger pic. I didn’t fight him on it so long as he let me put up Tenacious D.

      November 25, 2012 at 9:19 pm

  7. I adore Tenacious D, Metallica and Godsmack. Sully Erna has such a wonderful delivery, full of amusing sarcasm. Thank you for steering me into the path of Dethklok, I just watched this and nearly exploded myself!

    I haven’t started watching Supernatural yet but it’s on my agenda – never a dull moment eh?

    • You are my new best friend.

      February 2, 2013 at 6:50 pm

      • Fantastic! I love making new friends. *shakes hand* I find it hard to fault metal bands beginning with M – Metallica, Motorhead, Megadeth & Monster Magnet all rock so damn hard. I’m also surprised that I’ve never stumbled over Dethklok before, I really should spend more time with AdultSwim, especially as I adore Space Ghost & The Brak Show.

        Oooh ohhh! I just remembered another M, not really a band but still one of the greatest rock musician’s alive – Mike Patton from Faith No More! Magic!
