  • Why does Outlook appear to use about 1/3 the memory of Thunderbird? #win7 #
  • The Who-song miniatures that open the CSI TV shows aren't remixes. They're reductions, the bouillon cubes of pop music. #
  • If DC Comics or Marvel ran network TV, there'd be a crossover week in which Ted Danson appeared on every show. #
  • Wasn't looking at TV but heard commercial for what I thought was Apple, in which woman says, "It just works." Turns out it was Advil. #
  • Sometimes I forget that "The Sheltering Sky" by King Crimson doesn't have lyrics, the solo is so melodious. #
  • First time listening to Gang Starr when I had momentarily forgotten Guru had passed. #micgladiator #
