Lord of the Flies

Lisa in in Hawaii right now, leaving just the boys behind to mind the house. Stan, Noah, and I are planning on spending tomorrow night drinking beers and watching sports on the TV while sitting on the couch in boxers and wife beater t–shirts. I fully expect that by next Wednesday we will be roasting whole chickens over an open fire in the middle of the living room while wearing naught but loincloths and war paint.

In Former Soviet Russia, Tetris Plays YOU

I can’t watch an hour long video at work. I just can’t do it. Instead, I will post it so that I can watch it when I get home.

It’s the BBC. It’s Tetris. I’m considering leaving right now so that I can watch it when I get home

Penny Dish Wish

Every day I shop at the Gopher Express convenience store in the basement of Coffman (where I work). Since Minnesota has a dearth of fountains, and in the winter they tend to be empty, I came up with a new superstitious activity: I make a wish every time I throw a penny in the “Need a Penny Take a Penny Have a Penny Leave a Penny” dish. Some days I throw three or four in and make a different wish each time.

It’s an effective barometer and predicts my emotional weather. I won’t tell you what I actually wish for, because then it won’t come true (just because I don’t believe in the supernatural doesn’t mean that I’m not superstitious), but you should totally tell me what you wish for, because I am nosy, and if you tell me, I might just grant your wish.

Now, I have become Robot, the destroyer of worlds

Last week Zach stumbled upon 8 bit peoples. On that site they have collected the best bleeping music ever. Ever ever. You want your SID chips, Coleco sounds, Nintendo breakbeats? You got ‘em.

I am nerd, hear me bleep.

Over the weekend, Zach downloaded 1.4 gigabytes of bleeping. Cue worktime freakout dance moves.

Uh oh, it’s magic!

I think that my desktop computer is having hard drive issues. If you’re keeping track, this has happened about a million billion times over the last year.

Maybe I will be lucky, and it will just be memory or processor issues.

Cross your fingers!

I Hope That You Like Books

Hey! It’s about time for new school books! Considering that for the fall semester I spent $500 on books and $711 on camera stuff (not including the flash that I bought for the wedding), this semester’s bill of about $120 to $150 ain’t so bad. I suppose that I didn’t need that 50mm lens for the photo class, but — no, I did. I sleep with it like a teddy bear. I do still have most of a box of paper left. Hmm.

Walt Mink: Stood Up

Remember the Walt Mink concert at the Triple Rock last year? Still arguably one of the best concerts I’ve ever attended — and what a stroke of synchronicity:I randomly went to the Walt Mink site to look up some lyrics and saw that the tickets were on sale. Only a day or two later the tickets were all gone.

In any case, the first rough cut of any concert footage has been posted to Youtube by Chris Butler. If you’re curious, I’m in it, standing near the stage.
