April 2006


Well, it was really 4/29/2006 by the time they finally started playing. I was falling asleep while watching the previous band. We were very bored.

Carolyn made a better blog about the show:

Well, Wednesday we saw They Might Be Giants at the 9:30 Club. Good times. I found a setlist from setlist.com, a good site that meets a definite demand. (more…)

I sometimes rent PS2 games like netflix. I haven’t done it in over a year, but I was thinking about catching up on some of the newer releases. So I researched all the online rentals, to find out which ones are most efficient for my needs. Here are teh results.

PS2: DVD Avenue: $5.6-$7/slot, 2-8, 3=$6.66, 4=$6.25, 6=$5.80

PS2: RedOctane: $8.00 /slot, 2-3 ($8/slot@5or3,$9/slot@2)
THINK THEY SUCKED BEFORE

PS2: Intelliflix.com: $8.33 /slot, 3, + $5/rental for extra slots,
DUE DATES but MORE CENTERS THAN NETFLIX

PS2: RentZero: $9.33 /slot, 2-3 ($10/slot@2)

Vicky sent me this one.  She said (emphasis added):

I thought this article was interesting. 
I guess I could sort of see the source of the judge's logic, but still it's weird.

They were perfectly comfortable with giving him .5 years jail for helping to kill a girl.  But writing about selling pot — they add on 7.5 years. 

So does that mean writing about selling pot is 15 times worse than helping kill a girl? … So growing pot is almost as bad as helping kill a girl, but it is no where near as bad as writing about selling it.

Yes, this is all-too-typical of the American police state.  Actually committing a crime isn't nearly as bad as thinking about it, and conspiring on paper.  It's the thought that counts — moreso than the action.  Can we say thoughtcrime?

(And yes, before anyone argues with me, I understand perfectly what conspiracy laws are.)

I had heard about this many months ago, but another fascinating article on the new technology that allows you to "see" through your tongue.  Blind people catching balls.  Thanks to their tongue.  Crazy stuff.  I really want to experience it:
