I think I'm hilarious. You can imagine how well this goes over at work. Apologies to Dennis Hwang.

When Does a Copyright Expire...?

Just take the year of copyrighted work + authors age, add 70 or 95 or not, then jam self in eye with nearest sharp utencil. It's just that easy!

Sirius time-shifting

I'm currently thinking that hooking my new Sirius receiver to the line-in on my Mac and using Audio Recorder to record 8 hours of Sirius channel 22 (1st Wave) might be really cool. I would have an 8-hour mp3 file that I could load up on my iPod and fast-forward until the next B52's song. Maybe I'll even try 24-hours of the Christmas Carol station. Now that's a podcast.

LineIn and SoundSource

Two must-have free pieces of software for Mac OSX. It turns out it's really hard to do a simple line-in monitor thru your speakers or headphones without LineIn.

Harajuku girls

Gwen Stefani's recent song and multiple mentions of the aformentioned Harajuku girls throughout her new solo album has had an odd numbing effect on my want or need to research what, exactly, a Harajuku girl is? In fact, I would possibly pay money for a version of this album without the word Harajuku in it. More than anything however, I just want her to get back to the task at hand: making more New Order songs.

Commence with the commerce

I know I already blogged elsewhere about the Froogle wishlist so I'll shut up about it for a while - after I announce that you may now add a wishlist to your Blogger profile! Click on the wishlist link on my profile to see what I mean (it's under location). The Froogle team also changed their URLs to hide your email address from spambots. Nice, eh?

I am damp with excitement.
