Night’s doings

LISTENING TO: Turin Brakes “Ether Song,” Death Cab For Cutie “Transatlanticism,” Starsailor “Slience Is Easy” and some other stuff I can’t remember.

COMIC SERVICE: I picked up my comic book subscription after not going for a month and a half. After weeding some things out, the bill came to a mind-numbing $150. Gak! Despite that bill, I highly recommend Comic Service, 1000 E. Stanford Ave., Springfield, Ill. –> 217-753-0109 –> Tell Jim that Guido sent you.

DINNER: D’arcy’s Pint: Delux Ponyshoe (that’s hamburger, onions, bacon bits) & Black Velvet (the drink, not the cake)

BOWLING: 96 (ick) & 130 (eh, better)

How’s Impotent Potentate for a band name? Maybe somethingelse Potentate. Any ideas?

Sill-y pictures

I guess I got Jess thinking about the stuff on her window sill. She posted pics HERE. So I join the fun with this one from my work window that isn’t an outside window, but it’s the best I got.

Jess: I’m not sure who the figure on the left is, so that might change things, but just looking at it I had a whole story of a giant rampaging mutant broccoli.

Guido: The soldier to the left knows the giant rampaging broccoli is just scared and doesn’t really mean any harm, so he wants to protect the broccoli … they have a special unspoken bond.

Jess: Well, that’s nice.

Jess: Giant broccoli probably don’t have many options when it comes to friends.

Guido: Yes, they probably take what they can get.

Guido: Do you think the broccoli has a name?

Jess: Most definitely.

Jess: Maybe Clyde.

You can feel the sap

Added “Under the Tuscan Sun” to my movie list — watched it tonight. It was terribly sappy. One of the most sappy I’ve seen in a while.

OK turnout for Ultimate. We had 6’s for a while. Some of the regulars, I’m guessing, were wooed away by some local bands playing.

Gotham City, Ill.

Lower Wacker Drive in Chicago is going to be used as some of Gotham City in the upcoming film “Batman Begins.” BATMAN BEGINS OFFICIAL SITE

Piqued interest

I thought the paper was chock-full of interesting news today. Headlines:

–> Cass (County) jury finds Butlers guilty (local aggravated criminal sexual abuse trial)

–> Iraq: Nation sovereign once more: U.S. turns over power 2 days early

–> Residents can browse used items on Internet (JACKSONVILLE FREECYCLE)

–> Northern Illinois earthquake felt in Jacksonville

–> Supreme Court outlaws interrogation tactic that undermines Miranda warning

–> Supreme Court: U.S. cannot hold terror suspects in legal limbo

And anothter S.C.O.T.U.S. story from the radio:

–> In a 5-4 vote, the U.S. Supreme Court rules that a 1998 federal law enacted to shield minors from porn is likely unconstitutional. The high court says a lower court was right to block the law from taking effect, pending a trial, because it unnecessarily restricts legitimate speech.

Tiger

I’m anxious to see fuzzycouch.com in the new Safari RSS in Tiger. The new browser will detect rss and atom feeds allowing search for timely news items to be pretty instantaneous.

The visual scripting for automating repetetive tasks for non-programmers looks really awesome. You can build with “Automater” a script that says “on this webpage, grab all of the images, import them into iphoto as a new album named “My pictures” then export them to iDVD, add these transitions and create a screensaver. All with a simple graphical interface.

The other realy cool app is the new iChat. It will allow 10 people audio chatting over the net, or up to 3 others video conferenceing. And the interface is really slick.

The full keynote is on Apple’s World Wide Developer’s Conference (WWDC) website. VIDEO HERE
