    • Links for October 6th from 09:07 to 18:54 Sometime between 09:07 and 18:54, I thought this stuff was interesting. You might think so too!
    • The Phantom of the Opera Yesterday afternoon, Prairie and I got a call from her sister Hope offering us tickets to the closing night show of _The Phantom of the Opera_ at the Paramount. We, of course, were happy to take them, and headed out for an unexpected but not unwelcome night out at the theater.

    • Lost s02e03: Orientation Scribbled notes while watching last night's episode of Lost. Spoilers, obviously, so only read further if you want to...

    • .com, .org, what’s the difference? Last night during the VP debates, I noted that Dick Cheney mentioned factcheck.com when responding to some of Edwards' claims about Haliburton. I didn't actually check out the site immediately post-debate, so I'm just now picking up on this funny little tidbit:
    • Next track! Next track! It always screws with my head when a radio station is playing a song from a CD that skips.
    • World on Fire If you haven't watched it yet, watch Sarah McLachlan's video for 'World on Fire' (iTunes required). Just do it.

    • Don't ignore the youth It's always incredible when people can stop and take the time to recognize that if you can talk to today's youth rather than at them, if you can take them seriously, and if you can tap that enthusiasm, energy, and initiative, that you can muster a force that is truly one to be reckoned with. The PB knew that at EYE, and it looks like Dean and the people at Generation Dean know it and are doing everything they can to put that boundless energy to good use, and to knock Bush on his elitist little keister in 2004.
    • TypePad discount codes Today TypePad moved out of 'Preview Release' status, making them officially open for business. I still have fifteen discount codes available that will get anyone who uses one a 20% discount for as long as they stay with the TypePad service.
    • 32 cents At first I thought the guy at the register had goofed up my order, but nope. A manager came over and said that over the weekend, they'd raised the price of their small drinks. Okay, prices fluctuate from time to time, usually upwards, but a 32 cent jump for a 12oz (if that) soda? Yikes!
    • Words, words, words So if my posts are a little less frequent than they sometimes are for a bit…at least you know why. ;)
    • Male contraceptive on the way? With a few more years of testing and study, it appears that may finally be an effective male contraceptive.
  • 2001
    • A sunny Saturday afternoon The movie 2001 has been cleaned up, restored, and is hitting theaters again, and yesterday was the opening night of its run here in Seattle -- at the Cinerama, no less.
