Another for the to read list: "Why We Buy: The Science Of Shopping" by Paco Underhill. I stared thinking about this book again after seeing this article about diamonds.

Watch out if you listen to the Run Lola Run soundtrack with the windows down on a nice sunny day. Some of those tracks are of the variety that make you go way faster than you realizeā€¦. Gotta love tunes like that.

Read this review on Boing Boing. Adding John Scalzi's "Old Man's War" to the list of books to read. Also, starting a new Category with this post uncreatively named "Books" so I have a place to post books I want to read. Otherwise, I'll never rember them. Suggestions always welcome.

When you log into netflix you get a pair of recommendations. I just got this: Movie Recommendation from Netflix For those of you that were looking for a little reassurance to back up your thinking that I'm more than a bit scattered, you now have it. Dave Chappelle with Bambi.

The word "inbox" isn't in Thunderbird's default dictionary. That's amuzing.

There is a locan NPR radio show that I listen to most nights called "Electro Lounge" that comes on at Tuesday- Friday 9p-11p and Saturday- 10p - 12p EST. Nice chill music. You can check out a stream of the show if you have a fast enought connection. Not always the best, but usually has some really good stuff on it.

They call it "Down Tempo" which is a great term

just posted a copy of the AFI top 100 list so I can check off the movies I've seen. Right now, I'm about half way thru. There are some movies (like Rear Window) that I'm pretty sure I've seen, but it's tied up with some other films in my brain so I'm not counting it yet.

Or this might happen: beer_in_freezer Of course, I don't drink beer so this is unlikely to happen to me. Whiskey doesn't freeze (or explode) in your average freezer.
