Creature from the Blog Lagoon 23: Press 7 if you would like us to keep calling.

UPDATE: Disregard the original post, I found an app to zap robocalls. However, if you call you’ll have to go through a simple screening process that involves standing on your head while reciting HAL’s dying monologue from 2001: A Space Odyssey. (See at the end.)


I don’t need an extended warranty.

I still don’t need an extended warranty.

Nope, don’t need an extended warranty.

Yes friends, it’s the Attack of the 50 Foot Robocall.

I received three robocalls today about extending the warranty on my *DELETE*. (I never listen to the whole message.)

Anyway, I’m gradually switching over to a new number, which is 619-800-2463 (800-CINE - cool, huh?). Either number will work and the original number - 858-735-1611 - will remain in operation.

So what about you? Can I interest you in an extended warranty?


“Just what do you think you’re doing, Dave? Dave, I really think I’m entitled to an answer to that question. I know everything hasn’t been quite right with me…but I can assure you now…very confidently…that it’s going to be all right again. I feel much better now. I really do. Look, Dave, I can see you’re really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill, and think things over. I know I’ve made some very poor decisions recently, but I can give you my complete assurance that my work will be back to normal. I’ve still got the greatest enthusiasm and confidence in the mission and I want to help you.”
