The new Barenaked Ladies album Everything to Everyone came out today. It would be nice to have the CD for my collection, but that requires a trip to the store or a 2-day wait while Amazon ships it to me. Maybe I’ll just buy it on iTunes. Instant gratification!
They Might Be Giants released 3 new free MP3s today for download. They sound even better when you play them in iTunes for Windows. Oh, how I love iTunes. It’s da bibbidy bomb.
Looking back at the 17 books I planned to read this year, it looks like I haven’t made much progress. I’ve finished four of them (Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman!; Crossing the Chasm; The Cathedral and the Bazaar; and most recently The Diamond Age). The Diamond Age was good, but not as enjoyable as Snow […]
Ariella and I saw Bubba Ho-tep at the Nuart last night. Bruce Campbell is incredible. Don Coscarelli is a genius. Basically, the plot involves Elvis Presley, JFK, and an undead Egyptian mummy. Brilliant. Campbell appeared in person to introduce the Friday night show. Too bad he didn’t make it last night. I would’ve liked to […]
I finished reading The Goal by Eliyahu M. Goldratt back at the end of July, but only now (at 30,000 feet on my way back to LAX) have I finally found a free moment to sit down and write about it. Although the book was originally written almost 20 years ago, it does a great […]
Wesley Snipes is 41 years old today. Dude, when are you gonna make a good movie again? I’m still worried about you.
I was browsing through my CD collection this morning to find a few more albums to rip to my iPod and I came across Field Day, a funky acoustic pop album I hadn’t listened to in a while. It’s good. And now that it’s on my iPod, I’ll probably listen to it more. I really […]
A couple of weeks ago I read Eric Raymond’s The Cathedral and The Bazaar, a collection of essays about Open Source software. Raymond writes quite well for a techie (either that or he has a superb editor), and the book is coherent. I didn’t agree with most of the book, but I think it’s important […]
I was just introduced to Guster, a 3-piece band from Boston. I like their sound. Ariella’s family came to visit this past weekend. On Sunday after brunch we gathered around my laptop to watch streaming videos from Yahoo! Launch. At 300Kbps, it’s an on-demand (albeit lower-quality) MTV experience. Avital, an undergrad at BU said, “Hey, […]
We went to see Air Supply last night with Rachel and Dan. What a trip!
