So, Kansas made it into the Final Four. Barely. ((We won 59–57 versus a talented Davidson team that deserved more than a 10-seed, if I do say so myself. Here’s a good summary of the game.)) It has been an entertaining tournament so far, though there have been few bright spots. In fact, Kansas is […]
Nothing like messing with a perfectly working blog. I’ll be upgrading to WordPress 2.5 later today. The blog might break. My apologies. For whatever that’s worth. Update: No breakage involved. Had to refresh my included images a couple of times, but other than that, everything went smoothly, like a point upgrade should. Your mileage may […]
I don’t watch the local news on television. I don’t know many people who do. If I happen to flip to local news, I might watch if the weather is on, but I will never go find it. Why is that? Because one day in winter I saw a news story so dumb, so asinine, […]
For this week of American Idol the singers got to choose songs from the year of their birth. It’s like Eighties Nite all over again, only with fewer songs to choose from. Which was probably a good thing. Randy was a little harsh this week, and Paula was wearing some weird armwarmers with diamonds on […]
[Actually last week’s episode, but it was Spring Break, so sue me. Danny.] If the first night of Beatles (really the Lennon-McCartney Songbook) was a glorious showcase of all things good on American Idol, then the second night of Beatles (actual songs the Beatles recorded) was just the opposite, a flop-heavy collection of mediocre performances […]
Last Friday, Bill Richardson endorsed Barack Obama for President, over his long-time ties to Bill Clinton and the Clinton maquina. A lot of the sour grapes being hurled at Richardson by the Clinton team/mates are along these lines, “He’s just gunning for the Vice Presidential spot now,” accusing him of disloyalty (loyalty being the most […]
So, Google, purveyors of “what computers were supposed to do for us,” have this Google Maps feature called Street View. Cars with cameras on top cruise around the country, taking pictures of… well, of everything. Then they load them up online, and when you visit Google Maps, you can see actual pictures of the location […]
And I do, then you’ll want to read this interview in Esquire where he confronts the Internet. Choice bits include his dig at Charlton Heston and the bit about ball ironing. Cements him as a celebrity I’d like to know.
This is from some time ago, but still worth noting. If SkyNet was thinking about starting their world domination with robotic insects, they might want to think again. Nature is awesome.
This patent application by Apple regarding their research into digital video recorder (DVR) technologies has me salivating. If you know me at all, you know how much I love my TiVo. And yet, were Apple to build a DVR, I would happily back over my TiVo on the way to the nearest Apple Store. I’m […]
