i don’t care what anyone else says, I think Julia Stiles is a hottie.
I’m going to give up listening to music completely and completely devote my free time to collecting rare stamps. I have a collection of over 60GB worth of mp3s and over 400 CDs to give away if anyone is interested.
Well we leave for the windy city of Chicago tomorrow night! I’m pretty excited as I’ve never been there before. I get to tag along with Krissy since she has a conference up there (SIOP – Society for Industrial/Organizational Psychology) and her work is paying for it! We get to stay in this posh hotel and I’ll get to visit Dan (sax/vocals of Brownie Points) since he is still up there going to school at Northwestern U. for his master’s. Should be a rockin’ good time.
I’ve been working the late shift doing the uninteresting job of feeding a tape deck tapes to redigitize all of the footage for the entire documentary at high resolution. monotonous to say the least. Don’t have to go into work until 2PM, but have to stay there until 10PM. blah.
These quotes and related articles show how our country is really making a big mistake in destroying what little freedoms we retain for the welfare of the wealthy and powerful…
“I’m not very happy with the state of things. Music is being banned, and we have people in control of the radio stations who are the same people in control of the concert halls. They’re also tied into the [US] administration and are sponsoring pro-war rallies. It’s not good. . . In the next couple of months, they’ll probably make it unpatriotic to be Democrat. It’s pretty crazy.” – Neil Young http://www.guardian.co.uk/arts/features/story/0,11710,960988,00.html
http://www.buzzflash.com/farrell/04/03/far04009.html <- A very thorough article that really pulls its resources together to show that this is a problem we need to face now as a nation…
looks like I’ll have to buy this soon… comes out tomorrow.
Who knew that there was “enhanced content” on vinyl records back in the 80s? Pretty ingenious though. You see, games and programs used to be on cassette tape way back in the day, before DVD, before CD, even before floppy disk(!). So you’d plug in your cassette recorder to your record player and record the “signal” to a cassette and then play it back on the computer tape player. This site has a collection of info on who did this and what kinds of things they put on the records. Quite fascniating.
