Snakes on my blog

"Snakes on a Plane" is the new "shit happens." It's all making sense now. If you're on a plane at 37,000 feet and someone lets loose hundreds of poisonous snakes, what are you going to do, jump? Nope, there's nothing you can do about it. No sense in complaining. Snakes on a plane, man.

My brother named me after Noah, the Boa Constrictor from Richard Scarry's Busy Busy World. I was looking online for the guy, but he was nowhere to be found. Busy Busy World is out of print probably due to the 70's-era ethnic insensitivity. Incidentally, I listened to this podcast that opined on what this book would look like if was written today: A bunch of anthropomorphic animals sitting in cubicles, staring at computer screens. Sad but true. Anyway, because Noah the Boa had zero web presence, I had my brother scan the pages and I posted them on my blog. Nothing happened for a few months and then, blam! I get entangled in an Internet buzz.

One smart editor at Defamer must have been reminded of Noah the Boa from their ethnically insensitive childhood when they heard about the upcoming Samuel L. Jackson flop, "Snakes on a Plane." A google search would have turned up the only place on the web where Noah the Boa can be found, Noah Stone, the Blog, and linked to me. So, yesterday I got 3,000 visits from Defamer readers as well as cinematical. I'm starting to understand it. There's a Newsweek article this week called "Snakes on a What?" This is a movie that has the balls to call itself what it is... Well, actually it should be called "Snakes Go Direct to Video."

Snakes on a plane, man. Snakes on a plane.

I just love all the hoopla over this.... and I'm proud to have been the scanner for the copied images of Noah the Boa.

Yous is cools.

I used to not take my naps and read those books under the covers.

I love books.
