Patent schmatent. Call me shallow. Don’t really care about Amazon getting a patent on their one-click ordering thingie (the ‘ooops there I go again throwing money down the drain’-button.). But then I also thought it was a good idea for VARA to want to go commercial. Maybe I am a capitalist pig? And a stupid one too?

Aargh. Thought I’d check up

Aargh. Thought I’d check up on Narwal to find out why my new comp hasn’t arrived yet. Turns out they never received my final confirmation (the joys of e-mail). So it’ll be later this week. After my break (which ends tomorrow). Bah. Plus I think my eyesight is deteriorating. Maybe that’s because I stare at monitors 20 hours a day.


I’ve been good today. Went to the bank to change some dollars (I get them through the sales of my book) and then decided NOT to spend the money on a new cellphone. I don’t need one.


Hey… what’s happened to MUSE?

Move over Brett, Damon, Robbie,

Move over Brett, Damon, Robbie, Jarvis (what? Jarvis too?) and don’t even mention the entire cast of MSP: Tom certainly doesn’t look like the ‘back end of a bus’, in fact he’s got ‘popstar‘ written all over his face. heh heh heh

From the Chickenhead newsletter: Chickenhead

From the Chickenhead newsletter: Chickenhead is one of four finalists for the South by Southwest Interactive Festival’s Satire & Humor award. The competition? Comedy Central, The Late Show with David Letterman, and something pretty damned
cool called Daze of Our Lives. While a judge will pick the winner, your vote in the People’s Choice category would be muchly appreciated. Please take a moment to vote for independent Internet content – because Estelle Getty’s future depends on it!


From the Film Threat newsletter: I had to look very closely to even realize, “Oh, yeah, that IS Michael Douglas. Why does he look so gay?” I often see this use of the word ‘gay’ in American publications. It annoys me. Is it a language thing? Am I too sensitive?
