Interesting Craig Ferguson monologue on Britney Spears and Potpourri

Interesting post on what we as people owe to people in a tailspin.

Also, on an unrelated note, a new band I like: The Bellrays. Soul + Rock. Semisonic-ish. And on a related note, I'm currently reading Jacob Slichter's memoir of his time in the band. It's reassuring to know that the NYT and others agree with me that it is funny and intelligent. And, I checked it out of the St Paul Library, and it appears as if it's a signed copy. Thanks Jake! I told the librarians!

Neat art blog

huh. Animal art, like you'd find on a cute b-day card from Grandma, but freakier.

Intersting Youtube Video

I know a few short weeks ago I said that Youtube was useless but this is pretty interesting.

It might not make sense to most people, but it kind of ties into the book I'm reading-John Steinbeck's fantastic travelogue 'Travels with Charlie, In Search of America'. It's about his rediscovery of the middle and western part of the US, about what makes us tick and about how we want to live our lives. Awesome book, and remember: Reading if FUNdamental!

I'm stuck at work until the morning (damn bus doesn't run past midnight!), so I've been YouTubing.

I wish Al Gore would run for president. These two videos are a film made during the 2000 presidential run....they're done by Spike Jonze and they're really great. They show Al Gore as a really smart, thoughtful person with great vision. Too bad we as a nation didn't see him that way 8 years ago...and hopefully we're lucky enough to get these qualities in our next President.

Random Musings

I'm going to Florida next week, so this game might also apply to me:

I love Ugly Betty. Really. As much as the first two seasons of Battlestar Galactica and almost as much as Star Trek:TNG.

ahhh, the writing process:
