Outback Steakhouse Jingle

I am very excited to announce I found out where the Outback Steakhouse jingle came from.  You know, the one that goes "Let's go Outback tonight, life will still be there tomorrow."
Apparently the original song is by a band named "of Montreal" (out of Athens, GA oddly enough) and the title of the song is "Wraith Pinned to the Mist (and Other Games)".  I got the album, and it's pretty frickin' good!  I would say it's a mix of Modest Mouse and New Order.  I would recommend giving them a try.
While doing my research, I also found out they were one of the bands one a "Music from the O.C." CD, Mix 5. 
I've got some new critter pictures as well, but just haven't had the time to update.  Sorry to my 1 fan out there (me)!

Green Lynx

Took a pic of this spider I found on the overhang outside our house this weekend. It's a male Green Lynx Spider, his body was about the size of a paper clip. Similar to the Wolf spider in that they have great eyesight, and they don't make webs, but they hunt down their prey, chase it, and eat it. They eat small insects and other spiders. Not dangerous to humans.

This has been another edition of Mike Pernecky's Animal Planet.
