Hey, Canadian cats! “Recreational Narcatics” is now available online!

Hey, Canadian cats: Are you looking for “the good stuff”? Recreational Narcatics, purveyors of the finest nepeta cataria, are selling their 100% organic catnip on

As they say on the human edition of their site (yup, there’s a feline edition too!)…

Recreational Narcatics doesn’t harvest its plants until they’re nice and mature because that’s when plants boast their highest levels of nepetalactone, as well as essential oils and blooms. Caturday night should be as interesting and mentally stimulating as possible.

Recreational Narcatics sells on for CDN$11.49 for a 20g bag. Don’t you wish the human stuff came at that price?

Recreational Narcatics comes to you via my friend David Matte, whom I’ve known since the eighties. He knows his ’nip, and don’t just take my word for it — ask one of his satisfied customers:

What are you waiting for? Get your paws on Recreational Narcatics, available via for CDN$11.49, today!

Thoughts upon seeing an ad for a “Saturn Devouring His Son” yoga mat

Tap to view at full size.

My thoughts, in order:

  1. That’s a bit gruesome to bring to yoga class.
  2. On second thought, if you wanted to give off a “Don’t mess with me” vibe at yoga class, this would be the way to do it.
  3. Does the headline mean that Saturn’s son was named Yoga Mat? That name doesn’t sound like classical Greek.
  4. “Yoga Mat” would be a good Star Wars character name. Definitely better than the one they gave Baby Yoda.
  5. I’m sure there’s a dude named Matthew in the hipster part of town who goes by “Yoga Matt”.

Here’s the link if you’d like to buy the mat.

“Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey” is FREE on YouTube!

Another weekend of working on tech projects, another weekend of background noise, including the 1991 sequel Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey, also free on YouTube for a limited time (within the United States, or via VPN).

This is the Bill and Ted film that introduced the character of Death, hilariously played by William Sadler:

Sadler has some serious nerd cred, as he also played the menacing character of Luther Sloan, Deputy Director of the Federation’s secret black ops organization, Section 31:

The original “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure” is FREE on YouTube!

The original “Bill and Ted” movie — 1988’s Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure — is free on YouTube for a limited time! I assume that this is a promo for the new movie, Bill and Ted Face the Music, which was pretty enjoyable.

I’m using this it a little background noise while working on a programming assignment (more on this later on my tech blog, Global Nerdy). If you’re willing to put up with the occasional YouTube ad and need something to watch or have on while doing chores, exercises, or hey, even programming, here it is:

Internet Finds It Happened to Me

Remember when I asked why no one’s come up with “Sexy Tiger King” costumes? They’ve arrived.

Back in April, I wrote:

Why hasn’t a “sexy” costume based on Joe Exotic or Carole Baskin been announced yet? Usually, when a big pop culture phenomenon happens, the costume company Yandy are pretty quick to capitalize on it.

Yesterday, I got this email:

This Halloween,, the online retailer of sexy Halloween costumes has introduced the official Tiger King collection of costumes featuring unlikely pop-icon Joe Exotic as the star. The collection includes the Joe Exotic Men’s Tiger Cowboy Costume with a Blue tiger print sequin shirt, hat with attached mullet, and holster belt. There’s also the Joe Exotic Men’s Zookeeper Costume with a ‘Zookeeper’ shirt with tiger print “Joe Exotic” back, shorts, hat with attached mullet, and gun holster belt. There are also women’s versions available.

They’re a bit pricey — we’re talking $99 for the Joe Exotic costumes, and you’ll still have to provide your own “Goin’ to Tampa Gun”.

They’re a noticeable lack of Carole Baskin (I’ve suggested to Anitra that she should go as her), and you’d probably do better — and cheaper — by going to a thrift shop.
