It creeps me out when terms become obsolete during my lifetime.   With the move from hard drives to flash memory in mp3 players, the term “spinning” with regards to music is on the verge of becoming purely analogical, and when this happens, the term “disc jockey” will also join its ranks.  My guess is that both terms will remain, but that I’ll have to explain their original derivation to my grandchildren.  Or, more likely, I won’t have to, but I will anyway.  I base this on the fact that I still preach the superiority of the Atari 800 computer over the Apple II  to anyone who’ll listen.

I’m really friggin’ tired right now, but there’s one more piece of business to be addressed before I shut up and go to sleep:  The winner of the PartiallyClips Church Bake Sale Ad Contest is, hands down, Ruthie!  Her winning submission was this glorious ad.

Congratulations, Ruthie!  Please drop an e-mail to with your name and address so we can get your prize package in the mail!

For those of you who never checked out the contest, all of the submissions can still be seen here, and there are a lot of seriously LOL-worthy gems in there.  This contest was a blast, and I’ll definitely be doing similar things in the future.
