There’s a nice bit on Kaiju Big Battel on the NPR web site.
Month: September 2004
This is the guy who did the cover for the In Honor compilation. There’s some really neat artwork on his website.
In Honor: A Compilation To Beat Cancer
In Honor is out. I got my copy a couple of days ago. I listened to disc 1 in the car today, and it’s got some good stuff on it.
New Trey stuff on livephish.com, for anyone who needs a post-Phish fix.
Light the Night
Yay! I’ve reached my $200 goal for Light the Night. (Don’t let that stop you from throwing a few more bucks in, though, if you’re so inclined.)
John Lennon’s Jukebox
A fun show on PBS a few days back: John Lennon’s Jukebox. And there’s a two CD set available from Amazon, though only as an import. I wonder if I could find all these songs on iTunes and copy them down to my iPod?
Kopi Luwak coffee: I heard about this some time ago. It got a mention in News of the Weird this week. Still weird.
Too much TiVo
I’ve got eight episodes of Battlestar Galactica on my TiVo alerady. (They had a mini-marathon on the SciFi channel today.) Yikes.
I went out and bought a TiVo today. It seems to be working OK so far, but I do have to say that the IR blaster is a total kludge. It looks silly, and it takes longer than it should to change channels. All cable boxes, TVs, VCRs, etc, should have a standard serial port. Or Bluetooth. How hard would that be?
I now have a TV, VCR, DVD player, laserdisc player, PlayStation 2, and a TiVo. I think I’m done with A/V equipment for now. I have no room to put anything else!
