I had the idea to make a mix CD of TV show opening themes. Sadly, this could only go back 5-10 years, as they generally made custom music openings before then.

Massive Attack, "Teardrop" (House)
Remy Zero, "Save Me" (Smallville)
Cake, "Short Skirt/Long Jacket" (Chuck)
The Who, "Baba O'Reilly" (CSI:NY)
Lazlo Bane, "Superman" (Scrubs)

What else, folks?

Confidential to Urge Radio: Thank you VERY much for introducing me to that Massive Attack song. I love it! But really, playing it several times a day, often just a couple songs apart? Let's not ruin it, OK? Also, fucking enough of Joanna Newsom.


/me is the man now dog

How was I not more aware a journalist threw a shoe at my country's president?

Here's a clip of what happened, and the wiki on the clip.

Every single related one linked there is funny. My favorites:

- Bush as the boss of the Internet

- Play-by-play by the genius "Weird Al" Yankovic

- Everyone already knew he was a stooge.



Baby's first photo meme

Take a picture of yourself right now.

Don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair...just take a picture.

Post that picture with NO editing. (Except maybe to get the image size down to something reasonable.)

Post these instructions with your picture.

I don't post many pictures of myself. So, here ya go. The hurricane beard and glasses are extras.

Today's posts in newyorkers are incredible. Read them.

In particular, the comments in the latest post made me lose it, after coming close several times this morning.

Love ya, big city. See ya soon.


Barack me Obamadeus!

Please read this thread about Obama and Obama pictures. Great pictures, great comments.

In particular:
Next time I'm pushing for Method 3 instead.

a guy who acts like a big weiner, or a guy who literally is a giant weiner? whichever is more hilarious; it is probably the latter

I like how he misspelt "wiener."


I'm throwing a few extra brain cycles here and there at repurposing my LiveJournal, since I've largely abandoned it. I don't get a whole lot of comments, perhaps because I don't say too much that prompts them. So, I'll try something new: Let's talk about you!

How did you meet your significant other? Or, if you don't have one right now, how did you meet your latest? Bonus points if you met them after the age of 22.

I Loved My 20s

First came The Discovery Channel's commercials with the catchy song.

Then came the xkcd comic referencing it, which is how I found about that song.

Then I turned 30.

I loved my 20s
I love the friends I made
I loved the road trips
I loved the voicemails I played
I love the whole world
And all its messed-up girls
Boom de yada, boom de yada
Boom de yada! Boom de yada!

I loved my Nissans
I loved New Albany
I love big cities
And my growing family
I love the whole world
And how much I've got left to see
Boom de yada, boom de yada
Boom de yada! Boom de yada!

I love rewriting lyrics
I love photography
I loved 24 and Scrubs
And Dragon Ball Z
I love the whole world
And all the people I've yet to meet
Boom de yada, boom de yada
Boom de yada! Boom de yada!

Little New York

When I left work this evening, I saw a couple tourists taking a picture of the trash receptacle in front of my building, a square frame with cast-iron letters spelling out "Downtown Louisville" above it.

The last couple weeks, a small park, the size of a quarter city block, a few blocks away from my building has been unusually packed during the lunch hour, people laying out on the grass having lunch, sitting at tables, standing and talking, using their mobile phones, etc.

Over the last few years, we've passed a smoking ban, considered a trans fat ban, added bike lanes, and revitalized several old, abandoned, ruined buildings into upscale condos. With the gas prices going up, mass public transit use has gone through the roof--the buses are actually standing room only on a regular basis during rush hour.

It makes me indescribably happy to see my home city becoming more like New York, the other city I love, every day.
