I don't have enough patience

I don't have enough patience (not to mention stamina) to watch Saturday Night Live these days. Marney did refer me to a recent skit though which proves that not all the smart and funny writers ahave defected to The Onion yet.

For the uninitiated, The Replacements

For the uninitiated, The Replacements were an important band. Paul Westerberg was the song-writer and the singer of the band. Pitchfork Media has written a nice piece about a couple of their classic albums that have been resissued, remastered, re-commercialized...you get the picture. Pitchfork gets a link on the left nav for this one...between this review and one for The Roots, they're scratching me right where I itch.

Liquid Audio Gets a Buyer

Liquid Audio Gets a Buyer (Wal-Mart) for Its Assets. This is a big deal people. In fact, it was big enough news that even without any significant details of their own, the big boys in music announced their own deal the next business day just to show that they were in the game. Folks, the digital music business just gained a ton of credibility.

Hey, Dave Barry has a blog! How cool is that. Dave makes me laugh, he makes me cry (not really). I do like him better than Cats though.

I'm lucky in that I've got a whitebaord in my office. I'm not sure what I'd do if I didn't. Go here perhaps?

What I learned from


What I learned from SuperBowl XXXVII, by Pedraum Pardehpoosh
I learned a couple of important things during SuperBowl XXXVII:
I learned that a coach matters a whole lot in the game of football. #1 and #2 draft picks will create a team with stellar individual contributors but a winning coach makes a good team great (and in the process makes it difficult to determine a single MVP from within his team ranks).
I learned that a good defense is [apparently] more important than a good offense and that lots of preparation can't necessarily avoid the inevitable riot and looting following the loss of a team with among the rowdiest fans around.

I had a pogo stick

I had a pogo stick when I was kid. Weird concept, stand in one place and bounce around for thirty minutes or so. It was always more fun when mom and dad would let me venture out into the wild that was Walnut Creek in the 70's and let me bounce in one direction or another--it added a whole new dimenion to the experience, literally. Check out these bad boys called PowerSkips. They basically strap on pogo sticks that let you go a lot higher than any conventional pogo stick. Again, as with many hazardous toys mentioned herein, this is something I can see Jerry using--though he'll have to wait until spring.

The biggest reason I want

The biggest reason I want to get the new fancy PowerBook is the SuperDrive that I can burn DVD's with. However, I can't bring myself to pay a few thousand bucks just for that. If there were only a way to upgrade my existing PowerBook to have one o' those fancy drives...Eureka!

In a nod to homie and dealmeister Sean "Puffy" Gallagher, we give you http://www.cellphoneshop.net/...sure the delivery takes a little longer because it's coming from Hong Kong but the prices are pretty great. I comparison shopped a data cable for my phone (I paid $80 + tax for it at the Verizon store though it did come with the software). Cheers from Bentonville, Arkansas.

Some of these memory tools

Some of these memory tools are little goofy but I've always been interested in improving my memory (insert dumb joke here about never remembering to follow-through with this). [link was a little flakey this a.m.]
