Jaybird is Birdmojo on Xbox Live and Jaybirdmojo on Playstation's network. He's been playing consoles since the Atari 2600 and it was Zork that taught him how to touch-type. If you've got a song for Wednesday, a commercial for Saturday, a recommendation for Tuesday, an essay for Monday, or, heck, just a handful a questions, fire off an email to AskJaybird-at-gmail.com


  1. I am engaging in massive library check-out reduction. This is a compromise between the complete hold-cancelling ban of earlier years and the “dangit, I am in GRAD SCHOOL, leave me my vices!!!” reaction of the last year or two. 😀

    • A million years ago, I saw the movie “Rango”. (The first half was a lot better than the second half.)

      In the first half, there’s a lovely little scene where Rango is falling and the song that plays is an instrumental Ave Maria. This song got stuck in my head for a couple of weeks and I did what song-stuck people do: I looked for versions on the Youtube.

      A couple of days before Ash Wednesday, I found Bobby McFerrin’s version and thought “this version is so awesome, I just have to share it” and figured that Ash Wednesday was as good a day as any to bend the “no religion” rule.

      The following year, I found myself at the IHOP on Fat Tuesday evening enjoying my pancakes thinking that “I should do that again.”

      So I did.

      I’m kind of a fan of traditions. I find them comforting.

    • Good answer. Unfortunately I haven’t seen mine for years.

      I think I’ll give up privation. Can I do that?

  2. Oh man, looking back at the past Ash Wednesday posts, I listened to the Ruby song. I hadn’t heard that song in at least 15 years. So mission accomplished, sir (though 2 years late).

  3. Father Mulcahy: Klinger, I thought you were an atheist.
    Klinger: I gave it up for Lent.
