Boxtops lip-synch


The Letter: Chilton's lips don't match up well, and he doesn't care, because he's just too damn cool.

Renault F1 engine plays "We are the Champions"


And they did win the championship 10 days ago. A nice way to celebrate the end of the Schumacher era. If you liked power tools playing Christmas songs...

PiL on Bandstand


I had to work at the Gap on that May afternoon in 1980 and this was my first chance ever to see it. When Dick Clark introduces it as "something interesting and special," I don't think he realizes just how right he was.

Leonard Cohen's Seven Immutable Laws of Business


My favorite:

Scrap all the words like "maximize," "incentivize," "amortize," "enhance," "enable," and "team-building" from your vocabulary and replace them with "sorrow."

Nice piece on Stockhausen

Although one sentence does begin with the phrase "When Björk asked him..."

technorati tagging test 2

Tag with multiple words, escaped, in parentheses: ().

This concludes our test.

Beck's high on ascii. Watch "Black Tambourine."

technorati tagging test

More blogs about zamfir1.

Empty tag element like that, tagged as zamfir2: []. End of test.

Later: cool, that worked. Technorati searches on zamfir1 and zamfir2 both work. A search on potrzebie still doesn't work, so I assume that picking a particular category for your Movable Type entry doesn't add that name as searchable metadata in Technorati.

testing the category tags

I've configured this to ping technorati and a few other blog search engines when a new entry gets posted. I want to see if the category assigned to this shows up when I search technorati by tag.

Post-Cream, apparently, but Clapton's use of his ES 335 takes his sound back to his Bluesbreakers days.

Shaft's Big Score

A blog entry with a good title but negligible content. Probably the first of a series.

Stones Charlottesville setlist


Why a Japanese weblog? I don't know. During Miss You, a small section of the stage moved through the crowd as they played, to directly across from where we were sitting about 10 rows from the field, roughly at the 20 yard at the other end from the main stage. It moved back during Honky Tonk Woman. It was nice to see them that close, and the side view gave a good view of Charlie despite his setlist-covered plexiglass walls.

Psychic House

I finally caught a new episode of 'Psychic House' last night. They've only been showing the episode where Max moves in and impresses everyone by the pool with his 'Open the beer bottle using only his mind' routine. I thought it was pretty cool but after a while he started to come off as a little 'showy'. Like a bartender hustling for a $5.
Anyway last night's episode was worth the wait. Somebody's messing with Dalek's peanut butter and he had a really intense breakdown. Although he blamed it on stress, he bent Moenique's cereal spoon while she was eating her grapenuts. She kept cool and did her "I see peace in the valley where the gifted use their powers for good." speech. I wish she'd come up with something else. It's getting a little over done. Alexx thought Dalek was accusing him of abusing his peanutbutter and they had a mentalist showdown. It was the first one of the season. This time it was a little different because Alexx challenged Dalek by the pool so it was kind of cool. Not sure of the result because the episode ended with them just staring at each other really intensely.
Also I'm pretty sure Reana and Chris are secretly hooking up. When he used to levitate her T-Shirt Reana would always say something sassy and storm out. But now she just giggles and uses her powers to brush Chris's bangs behind his ears. It's kind of sweet.
Gotta run. Starlett's on.

adding an inline picture

This time I'm adding an entry with an inline picture, and some HTML.

In the RSS feed, these show up as being by "admin" so I'm going to have to create a username with my actual name.

This concludes our test.

second try at using quickpost


I forgot to set Post Status to "Published" the first time I used quickpost, and may have lost the entry.

first blog post

This is my first weblog, or "blog," entry. This part is the "Entry Body" that I'm entering into the movabletype form.

Here is a second paragraph. This is bold. This is italic. It's just amazing what they can do these days.

This part is the "Extended Entry" that I'm entering into the movabletype form.
