Since I’ll hit 20 years of blogging this November, this year I’m posting a daily list of anything I published on this day in the past.

There are 20 posts previously published on February 12th

    • Bed used in hotel honeymoon suite for 15 years then discarded in a parking lot, rescued by an antiques dealer, and initially believed to be Victorian, turns out to be Henry VII’s marriage bed.
    • Book fifteen of 2019: The Book of Merlyn, by T.H. White. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 📚 A curious coda to TOaFK, mostly serving as an argument against humankind’s warlike tendencies. Not critical to finish Arthur’s story, IMHO.

    • Kicking off this long weekend with the latest Bond flick. Doo doo, doo dooooooo… (43/366)

    • Good Twitter Marketing is Communication The single most important aspect to marketing successfully on Twitter is having a real person behind the account. Many companies seem to see Twitter as little more than an RSS reader for people who don't grok RSS readers, and that's a rather sad outlook.

    • Which Super Villain am I? Which super villain am I? 'You fear the persecution of those that are different or underprivileged so much that you are willing to fight and hurt others for your cause.'
    • Wanted: One Apology from the Seattle PI The PI's public vilification of the crane operator was a slimy, sleazy way to grab eyeballs and sell papers at the expense of his reputation. Trial and conviction should be handled in the courts, not in the headlines.
  • 2004
    • Atom feed now available Seeing as how an Atom-enabled beta of NetNewsWire just hit the 'net, I took a few moments to get an Atom newsfeed up and running for Eclecticism.
    • Biggest breakup of the year I'm talking a breakup of real importance here — one that will be inspiring headlines in all the rags, sending the talk-show hosts into a flurry, and prompting a whole slew of rabid fan sites lamenting the passing of such a long-adored perfect couple.
    • The Grey Album Vocal tracks from Jay-Z's 'The Black Album' + samples from The Beatle's 'The White Album' = Danger Mouse's 'The Grey Album'.

    • Patriot II raising ire Finally, some good movement happening on the polictical front — a very welcome change from last week's ranting and raving. It seems that the recently-leaked 'Patriot II' draft, in addition to getting attention in the blogging world, is also raising eyebrows on Capitol Hill.
    • Recommend me? Actually, I'm not out to be a boyfriend right now — pretty happy staying single for the foreseeable future — but I can think of plenty of times when I wouldn't have minded getting a recommendation on greatboyfriends.com!
    • Awww – how sweet! Just a little 'Wüdi love' from me to my readers, in honor of the coming Valentine's Day. Yeah, even I can get a little mushy from time to time. Who knew?

    • If? What is this if? If I were a lesbian, she would make me go straight!
    • Hannibal I just don't think the script gave much to work with, and I can say that I definitely agree with both Jonathan Demme and Jodi Foster's decisions to pass up on returning to this film.
  • 1994
    • [From Usenet: 2.12.94 0400] I got a shirt a while back only because I thought it was great (person with bird's head mask holding a naked woman upside down by a knife through the foot, says 'Some have to dance, some have to kill' on the back), and someone recently told me it was a Psychic TV shirt.
