Conversation with WagnerDotComPoser at 8/19/2007 3:55:50 PM on The Main Brain Frame (aim)

(3:55:50 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: what do you call the nav system
(3:56:08 PM) The Main Brain Frame: well it's not official yet
(3:56:51 PM) The Main Brain Frame: (primarily b/c it's a cool name and not at all condescending)
(3:56:55 PM) The Main Brain Frame: but there is one name that rhymes with dingus and doofus
(3:57:11 PM) The Main Brain Frame: and... considering my phone is kind of a "Transformer"...
(3:57:12 PM) The Main Brain Frame: you do the math
(3:57:27 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: i dont know
(3:57:38 PM) The Main Brain Frame: optimus!
(3:57:49 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: ah
(3:58:04 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: i christened the new ipod "Dhroombus"
(3:58:22 PM) The Main Brain Frame: what is it with you and that word? what does it mean anyway?
(3:58:32 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: it doesnt mean anything
(3:58:45 PM) The Main Brain Frame: it reminds me of the robot vacuum cleaner
(3:58:49 PM) The Main Brain Frame: "rhoomba"
(3:58:52 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: i named my pc a long time ago "DhlemBjoorg"
(3:58:59 PM) The Main Brain Frame: chris had one
(3:59:08 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: and the first ipod "DhlemBjoorg II"
(3:59:13 PM) The Main Brain Frame: heh
(4:00:19 PM) The Main Brain Frame: do any of your names actually mean anything? or even refer to anything (besides automated robot vacuum clenaers)
(4:01:31 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: they mean nothing
(4:01:43 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: words that dont mean anything, is the idea
(4:02:06 PM) The Main Brain Frame: "they mean nussing"
(4:02:12 PM) The Main Brain Frame: I am on the fence about whether calling my phone 'Optimus' is gay or cool
(4:02:23 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: kinda gay
(4:02:34 PM) The Main Brain Frame: I mean the damn thing is awesome, it has practically no flaws and does some incredible shit
(4:02:54 PM) The Main Brain Frame: gay in the "I'm 33 and I fondly remember transformers" sense, or in some other way?
(4:07:12 PM) The Main Brain Frame: fine, leave me hanging
(4:09:11 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: was smoking a cigarette
(4:09:36 PM) The Main Brain Frame: so did you mean gay in the "I'm 33 and I fondly remember transformers" sense, or in some other way?
(4:10:03 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: just that naming a techological device Optimus sounds something very metrosexual
(4:12:10 PM) The Main Brain Frame: optimus was the leader of the autobots. are you daring to besmirch his hallowed name?
(4:13:01 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: no
(4:13:07 PM) The Main Brain Frame: now that you put it that way, I can hardly think of a more masculine name for a machine
(4:13:40 PM) The Main Brain Frame: except maybe 'charleton heston', but you won't catch me near anything named THAT
(4:13:49 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: thats my point
(4:13:55 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: its so uber masculine
(4:14:59 PM) The Main Brain Frame: heh, well you used to play with "masters of the universe". you can't get much more thinly-veiled gay than that : )
(4:16:11 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: true
(4:17:12 PM) The Main Brain Frame: doesn't it creep you out how homoerotic that stuff was?
(4:17:27 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: yes it does
(4:17:42 PM) The Main Brain Frame: heheh.
(4:18:32 PM) The Main Brain Frame: it's got to be one of the bigger WTF's of youth
(4:19:58 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: optimus balls
(4:20:17 PM) The Main Brain Frame: I think you're just jealous
(4:20:48 PM) The Main Brain Frame: justin started to actually feel inferior even though he has the most popular phone history has ever seen (which I helped him buy)
(4:22:49 PM) The Main Brain Frame: I think you're beating the word "balls" to death
(4:23:21 PM) The Main Brain Frame: (I actually felt physical pain using that metaphor)
(4:23:24 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: i think i'm feeling rather antsy
(4:23:52 PM) The Main Brain Frame: what, the weather?
(4:23:55 PM) The Main Brain Frame: the nicotine?
(4:24:47 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: weathyer'
(4:26:57 PM) The Main Brain Frame: I almost wish it was raining here. I'd like to take a big-ass nap
(4:28:14 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: so take one
(4:28:29 PM) The Main Brain Frame: as opposed to a big ass-nap
(4:29:09 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: so take one
(4:29:18 PM) The Main Brain Frame: well I woke up late and it's sunny out so I have to stay up and shame myself for not taking full advantage of the day. it's mandatory
(4:30:59 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: i see
(4:32:01 PM) The Main Brain Frame: hey, no room for porn
(4:32:31 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: go for it
(4:32:50 PM) The Main Brain Frame: no I mean you
(4:33:12 PM) The Main Brain Frame: ifyou filled your 30gb pod up right away with music you'll have no room for porn
(4:33:51 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: true
(4:34:10 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: i can just uncheck some of the music
(4:34:30 PM) The Main Brain Frame: there should be a charitable program for guys who need to upgrade b/c they can't fit porn onto their iPods
(4:34:44 PM) The Main Brain Frame: but yeah
(4:35:01 PM) The Main Brain Frame: I guess being guys we would give up large amounts of music for small amounts of porn
(4:35:55 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: being guys
(4:37:25 PM) The Main Brain Frame: making up for lost time... countering the effects of a youth spent playhing with homoerotic toys
(4:37:46 PM) The Main Brain Frame: (but not me. no, no, never)
(4:38:14 PM) The Main Brain Frame: I fail to see the homoeroticism in Transformers
(4:38:22 PM) The Main Brain Frame: please clarify this for me
(4:39:53 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: in disguise
(4:40:05 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: in the closet
(4:40:25 PM) The Main Brain Frame: hardly
(4:40:41 PM) The Main Brain Frame: I think you're grasping at straws
(4:41:19 PM) The Main Brain Frame: because you know in your heart that nothing comes close to he-man on the homo-eroto-meter
(4:43:21 PM) The Main Brain Frame: that's right, the "homo-eroto-meter"
(4:53:20 PM) The Main Brain Frame: and you're squarely on it
(4:53:53 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: on it like a spindle
(5:00:25 PM) The Main Brain Frame: don't sell the farm, ray
(5:04:26 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: ok
(5:07:44 PM) WagnerDotComPoser: guess i'm not going to williamsburg
